Just like Trump and his supporters, last night Seth Meyers "said what all of us" at Crooks and Liars "are thinking."

Trump is a racist, has always been a racist, and anyone pretending otherwise is either lying or stupid.

Meyers saved some special sauce for Paul Ryan. Transcript via Media Matters:

MEYERS: But maybe the most ridiculous reaction from a GOP leader came from House Speak Paul Ryan, who's been hailed in the media as the GOP savior, a serious leader who could unite the party, broaden its appeal, and focus on substance. Ryan endorsed Trump on Thursday, just in time to get asked about Trump's racist attack on Judge Curiel, and said this.

REP. PAUL RYAN (R-WI): Look, the comment about the judge the other day just was out of left field for my mind.

MEYERS: Out of left field? Trump built his entire political career on questioning the legitimacy of the first black president.

Exactly! The rest is well worth the click.
