Seth Meyers is putting his foot down about Donald Trump—though there is a minor catch.
In response to recent news that the Republican presidential contender barred the Washington Post from his campaign events after publishing a headline he claimed was inaccurate, the late-night host announced that Trump was no longer permitted to come on the show until the situation is rectified.
"Trump is stoking fear and spreading hate," Meyers explained Tuesday night. "We cannot allow it to become normalized."
As the decision made headlines, Trump responded, claiming it was Meyers who wanted the candidate on the show to begin with.
"He has begged me to do the show for the last two years. I have told him emphatically ‘no,'" Trump said in a statement released by his campaign. "I only like doing shows with good ratings, which as everybody knows, I only make better (by a lot)."
It was a point Meyers couldn't ignore when he took his seat for the next show Wednesday night.
