Seth Meyers may have banned Donald Trump from appearing on Late Night, but that doesn't mean he's about to stop talking about the controversial candidate.
In fact, the host used his "Closer Look" segment on Monday night's show to continue blasting Trump, explaining how even republican leaders are going to great lengths to avoid discussing him.
For example, this week, Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey and North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, who are both up for re-election this year, resorted to fleeing into elevators in order to steer clear of reporters' questions about Trump.
"It's only a matter of time until Capitol elevators are just jammed with congressional republicans hiding out until after the election," Meyers joked. "'What floor?' 'Oh, no floor! I'm just going up and down until November 9th!"
LOL! He also pointed out the extreme lengths republicans are going to save their party from the damage Trump could cause. For instance, calling George W. Bush out of retirement to help campaign for senators worried about losing their seat due to Trump.
They've also talked about paying off the candidate to get him to drop out. Meyers played a clip of Trump at a campaign speech Monday responding to rumors of a $150 million offer to get him to stop campaigning. Trump essentially said that price was too low and that he might consider the deal for $5 billion.
"Okay, let me see if I got this straight: It's a hard no for $150 million, but he'll think about it for $5 billion," Meyers joked about the conversation. "Based on everything I read in The Art of the Deal, I'm thinking we could put this thing to bed for $2.2 billion, $2.3 billion. And—I'm being serious—I think we could get Mexico to pay for that."
