Seth Meyers: Chicago President Offer 'Still Stands' for Trump — Watch

Seth Meyers hasn’t forgotten about his Chicago President series idea for Donald Trump. And in the wake of the Republican candidate’s presidential victory Tuesday, Meyers is hoping Trump hasn’t forgotten, either.

“Our offer still stands,” Meyers said on Late Night Wednesday. “Come on! You didn’t think you were going to win this thing either, and I’m guessing right now, you are spinning out.”

Meyers joked that Trump’s Dick Wolf drama — set, naturally, in the Windy City — would now get “a 22-episode order, and we’re giving you the coveted 10 pm-Monday slot, which means you’ll be on right after The Voice.”

In a more serious moment, Meyers lamented Hillary Clinton’s loss but pointed out that “someone’s daughter is out there right now” who’ll be the first woman president of the United States.

“Whoever you are, I hope I live to see your inauguration,” he added, getting choked up. “And I hope my mom does, too.”

Meyers wrapped the bit — which NBC released ahead of Wednesday’s airing — by saying that “democracy is a fantastic thing, even when it doesn’t go your way” and with a promise to the president-elect: “We here at Late Night will be watching you.”

    This guy is a total clown. You can’t vote for a gender BECAUSE of their gender. Take this more seriously please. It’s this elitist attitude that lost this election. These “celebrities” talking down to the actual hard working, down to earth citizens of this country make me puke. Guess what Seth? I’m not laughing with you, I’m laughing at you!

    What a joke! This guy is so funny and so stupid that he doesn’t realize it’s this liberal media agenda that made a lot of people sick and went out and voted for Trump

    Give it up Meyers, when you start to wish or vote for someone because of gender instead of the person, it’s time you see a shrink to help your thinking processes with whatever you have in that head of yours. Grow up and accept the outcome. There’s always Canada !
