Late Night with Seth Meyers gave us a welcomed dose of honesty last night. The host excoriated Donald Trump's fake 'birther' press conference Friday. Contrast last night's hilarity with the nice grandpa treatment he received from Jimmy Fallon last week, and you'll be much happier with this well-earned beatdown.

The funniest part was his simple, yet profane statement that should be said more often. First, he played the pandering, disingenuous sound bite where Trump actually takes credit for proving this birth certificate fact to be true.

TRUMP: I finished it, I finished it. You know what I mean. President Barack Obama was born in the United States, PERIOD.

MEYERS: Obama Was Born In The United States, PERIOD? F*ck You, exclamation point.

Meyers eviscerated Trump's surrogate and miscreant, Chris Christie. He addressed his latest scandal where it was proven that he knew, all along, about the bridge lane closure, as we all figured. Meyer's compares this intentional sabotage to the alleged email 'scandal' that has unfairly plagued Hillary Clinton. He said,

Say what you will about Hillary's email server, it never stuck an ambulance in traffic, you cartoon gangster.

Meyers played a plethora of clips where it is so obvious that Trump was very much responsible for the idiotic claim and then outed all his fake attributes, including Trump 'University.' He reminded the orange fuher-wannabe that Twitter is FOREVER.

This is how you should treat a dangerous charlatan and madman. Meyers handled Trump the way the rest of the media should. Expose the lies by simply using the man's own words. It's really not quantum physics.

Can you help us out?
