Seth Meyers: Bernie Sanders Now in the 'Betty White Zone' of Coolness — Video

Late Night‘s Seth Meyers has a theory about Bernie Sanders‘ recent polling surge, and it has little to do with his resemblance to Waldorf from The Muppets.

If Sanders happens to remain hot in Cleveland (or more importantly in Iowa and New Hampshire), he’s probably entered the “Betty White Zone” of coolness, which Meyers on Tuesday explained is the key behind the democratic hopeful’s success with millennials.

Watch the segment above to learn more about the alleged “zone,” then sound off in the comments.

    I appreciate the humor in this; but, in all seriousness, people just want change. And, apparently, revolutionary change. I’m all for it. A Bernie Sanders-Donald Trump debate would be…awesome.

    Seth Meyers has really been on fire the last several weeks. His opening segments have gone far deeper into territory than typical monologues, especially his “A Closer Look” segments. Late Night really does deserve to be included in the conversation with The Daily Show and The Nightly Show for pointed political commentary. Just check out the Closer Look segment from Monday night where he gauged Republicans’ reactions to the deal that brought back the American hostages from Iran.

    Ever since Seth’s opening went from a stand up segment beginning straight from his desk ( a large SNL Weekend Update) the quality and sharpness has bloomed. Love it.
