Since the tragic sniper attack on Dallas Police this past week, there hasn’t been any real coverage from the popular late-night hosts. Many of them are on hiatus or taking a break getting ready for the Republican National Convention next week, but thankfully Seth Meyers was available to speak the truth and he did just that Monday night on his segment, “A Closer Look.”
In it, Meyers gave praise to the reasonable people who have pointed out that we can all “grieve for police officers and advocate for police reform,” but also found that “unfortunately others looked at the situation and asked, ‘How can we make things worse?’”
Naturally, many GOPers have taken this opportunity to do their part making things worse. Sunday, Sarah Palin called Black Lives Matter protesters inhuman “thugs”. Joe Walsh went crazy on Twitter when he told President Obama and #BLM, “We’re Coming For You!” Perhaps one of the worst of the bunch was Rudy Giuliani, who gave some truly offensive advice to black kids by telling them that if he were a black father he would warn his children to fear other black kids, not police.
Seth had his own special advice for Giuliani, though:
First of all, don’t ever start a sentence with, ‘If I were a black father.’ If you are a black father, you don’t need to say it and if you aren’t, you should probably just shut the f*ck up.”
He does go back to end on a more positive note, reminding us of the hopeful things that Republicans like Newt Gingrich have said, but I don’t want to give it all away. You have to see it!
