Seth Meyers takes A Closer Look at the GOP and President Donald Trump’s priorities just days away from the election

President Donald Trump and the Republican Party continue to live in an alternate reality, says Seth Meyers. Last Night on Late Night, the host used “A Closer Look” to examine how, just days away from the election, the president and his party still don’t have their priorities in order.

Meyers has been charting the desperation in the Trump campaign for months. “A Closer Look” has detailed the ways in which the Republican Party has attempted to subvert things in their favor rather than campaign on President Trump’s policies or accomplishments.

The closer we get to the election, the more President Trump and his allies have pushed an alternate reality while focusing on the wrong issues. This was Meyers’s argument in the latest installment of “A Closer Look.”

Watch below as Meyers questions President Trump’s claims that the pandemic is over. The Late Night host then turns his attention to the GOP’s obsession with social media.

Meyers starts things off by once again going after the core of the Republican Party. Throughout President Trump’s time in office, Late Night has used “A Closer Look” to remind viewers that the GOP is a much larger problem than the president himself. Meyers’s insults have ranged from calling the GOP a cult and danger to America to last night’s description as a collection of weirdos and puds.

With just days until the election that could see the GOP lose the White House and key Senate seats, Meyers finds Republicans complaining about “mean tweets.” While this is an example of President Trump’s trickle-down effect on Republicans, Meyers also points out that these GOP lawmakers think their complaints are more important than voter suppression or the pandemic.

Seth Meyers and A Closer Look outline President Trump’s campaign against reality

Turning his attention to the president, Meyers lays out the case why President Trump can’t successfully campaign against former Vice President Joe Biden. Instead, “A Closer Look” details the president’s campaign against reality.

The theme of Trump vs. reality has been a common one in late night television. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has been especially focused on this idea, entertaining audiences with how President Trump operates under his own set of facts, rules, and truths, hoping Americans will follow.

Meyers sounds confident that President Trump’s version of reality is only accepted at his rallies. The pandemic data is undeniable, making it clear to most people that it is far from over or that it can be ignored. The Late Night host is holding out hope that the election will serve as a reality check to President Trump and the Republican Party.
