The Late Night host on Tuesday banned the Republican presidential nominee from appearing on his NBC talk show following the candidate’s decision to block The Washington Post from attending his campaign events. Trump’s embargo on the D.C.-based publication came after a headline was published emphasizing his inherent attempts to paint President Barack Obama as a terrorist sympathizer in wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting on June 11.
“Trump’s vague innuendo is no accident,” Meyers said, insisting that “this is a strategy he uses to try to appeal to the outer fringes while also avoiding accountability.”
Meyers was also put off by Trump’s inflammatory statements suggesting that all Muslims are in some way tied to a radical Jihadist agenda, be that via their own belief systems or through someone they know:
“To be clear, this is bigotry, plain and simple. To claim that any group of people, immigrants or anyone else, has anything in common with a terrorist murderer simply based on their ethnic background or religion… is dangerous and wrong.”
