Seth Meyers Explains The Tough Choice In This Election

By
Late Night with Seth Meyers on YouTube

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the most unpopular presidential candidates in history.

A lot of people would literally rather vote for a dumpster fire than either of them.

Seth Meyers discussed these feelings the other night, delivering an epic rant on why this election truly sucks.

That's a problem for a lot of Americans: They just don't love the two choices.

Meyers' rant took the form of a question: How does one choose between these two candidates?

He said,

Do you pick someone who's under federal investigation for using a private email server? Or do you pick someone who called Mexicans rapists, claimed the president was born in Kenya, proposed banning an entire religion from entering the US, mocked a disabled reporter, said John McCain wasn't a war hero because he was captured, attacked the parents of a fallen soldier, bragged about committing sexual assault, was accused by 12 women of committing sexual assault, said some of those women weren't attractive enough for him to sexually assault, said more countries should get nukes, said that he would force the military to commit war crimes, said a judge was biased because his parents were Mexicans, said women should be punished for having abortions, incited violence at his rallies, called global warming a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese, called for his opponent to be jailed, declared bankruptcy six times, bragged about not paying income taxes, stiffed his contractors and employees, lost a billion dollars in one year, scammed customers at his fake university, bought a six-foot-tall painting of himself with money from his fake foundation, has a trial for fraud coming up in November, insulted an opponent's looks, insulted an opponent's wife's looks and bragged about grabbing women by the pussy? How do you choose? Because it's so … it's so even. It's so even.

I mean, yeah, what a tough choice, right?

Do we vote for the former first lady, senator and secretary of state who is arguably the most qualified person to ever run for president?

Or the misogynistic, racist reality TV star who's never held elected office and brags about sexual assault?

Do we vote for the person who exhibits predictable levels of corruption for someone who's been in politics for decades?

Or a guy who is actively undermining America's democratic process, all the while responding to criticism by throwing temper tantrums on Twitter like a toddler who was denied candy at the supermarket?

Do we vote for a person who we know pretty well (we have thousands of her emails)?

Or a man who won't even release his tax returns and who once said, "We need unpredictability" with nuclear weapons?

HOW DO WE CHOOSE, AMERICA?! 

Meyers really put this tough question into perspective, and people are loving him for it.
