Seth Meyers Tears Up As He Expresses Disbelief Over Election Results

Seth Meyers had a particularly hard time accepting that instead of electing its first female president, the U.S. chose Donald Trump for the White House.

Donald Trump’s presidential win turned out to be a huge blow to thousands of people across America.

While some of them are hoping he’ll turn out better than expected, others are finding comfort and peace in one another, as they urge those around them to remain united in these trying times.

However, one person found it particularly difficult to hold back his tears as he expressed his disbelief and disappointment over the presidential elections.

Ever since Trump announced he would be running for president of the United States, comedian and late night show host Seth Meyers believed he would back out, and surely stood no chance of entering the White House.

Unfortunately, his biggest fear came true.

On the latest episode of NBC’s “Late Night” show, Meyers talked about how everything he’s said about Trump until now has ended up being false.

“You know, we’ve been talking about Donald Trump on this show for 18 months, and one of the things I’ve tried to make clear over those 18 months is how I’ve been wrong about him at every turn,” he began. “When he first came down the escalator at Trump Tower and announced, I boldly said on this show it was a stunt, and he would never really run. I then said he would never win the GOP nomination, and I certainly didn’t think he would be our next president.”

Meyers then made another prediction.

“Based on this pattern of me being wrong on every one of my Donald Trump predictions, he’s probably going to be a great f****** president! Let’s just hope this trajectory holds,” he exclaimed.

The host also talked about how he and his family, including his little son, were looking forward to their first female president.

“But that does mean — that does mean — that someone’s daughter is out there right now who will one day have that title. And maybe you’re a woman who’s currently a senator, maybe you’re still in college, hopefully you’re not a toddler — but who knows. With the way things went last night, who knows,” he concluded. “The fact is, we don’t know who you are, but I imagine this moment today will be a defining one for you. One that will make you work harder, and strive farther, and whoever you are, I hope I live to see your inauguration.”

Meyers wrapped up with the hope that Trump really is not as racist and was just using the hateful rhetoric to court voters, because after all, when we court someone we pretend to be someone we’re not, right?
