Seth Meyers to Donald Trump: Exit the Race, Be a Chicago President on NBC

Seth Meyers isn’t dropping his “ban” on Donald Trump, but he is prepared to help land him a job with Dick Wolf should he agree to exit the presidential race prior to the Republican National Convention.

The Late Night host on Thursday offered the candidate “all the trappings of the presidency, without any of the responsibility” courtesy of a straight-to-series order for Chicago President. The generous deal would let his supporters “watch [him] be president but with no real-world consequences.”

As outlined by Meyers, the umpteenth Chicago Fire spinoff wouldn’t just be a winner for the Peacock, but also for supporters of Trump’s plan to build a wall across the United States-Mexico border.

“On TV, we just need to build a tiny part of the wall,” Meyers explained. “And then we’ll just CGI the rest.”

As for who could play the judge presiding over the Trump University lawsuit on Chicago President? “Jimmy Smits. We! Can! Get! Smits!

Watch Meyers’ proposition above, then answer the following question: Would a fictitious Trump presidency make for great TV?

    That is laughing out loud funny…

  3. Oh wow! A celebrity being anti-GOP! What’s next? Water is wet?

    Until this guy calls for Hillary to exit the race with the same vigor if not more since well, she IS a criminal, he’s a putz.

    Anyone who trashes Trump but supports Hillary has no clue.

    Seth Myers is so underrated. Not as flashy as lip sync battles or karaoke in cars but he has been killing it!

    Late night TV talk shows jumped the shark a long time ago. Hasn’t been a good late night TV host since Johnny Carson. At least when he hosted, he had some dialogue with his guests, not crazy skits and stupid games. Now the only time entertainers come on the night talk show circuit is to promote their newest movie, play, or tv show. Nothing of real substance on late night tv anymore.

    • Couch Mom says:

      I should add, that while he did have skits and games, they weren’t the majority of his show and the dialogue he had with his guests had substance not mindless banter.

    • Mary says:

      That has always was the reason a celebrity went on these talk shows, to promote something where have you been.

        Not with Johnny Carson. Even A listers considered it an honor to be on his show. But he had on kids, pets, grandparents, gave so many unknown future stars their big breaks and listened to everyone just the same as the big stars. Jimmy Stewart would go on the show just to read his latest poem or stars would just come in to chat. Love watching the DVDs of his shows and remember some of those I’d sneak down to watch towards the end of his run.

    Hilarious! I love it.
    I wish other hosts would also ban him.

  9. Luis says:

    Seth Meyers needs to send Trump a thank you bouquet for serving up probably the best stretch of “Late Night” since he took over

  10. Susan says:

    What a jerk!! I knew there was a reason I never watch his show!!

  11. Robin says:

    Hey it’s all about making the deal right?!? LOL This was great!!!!
    I really wish we had a third candidate. I don’t care which party: Biden or Kasich would get my vote over the two people we have.

  12. c-mo says:

    Since he’s banning Trump, I might start watching the show because that means he can’t have Hilary either…equal time and all…it’s a win-win for everyone!!!!!!!
