Seth Meyers has attacked President Donald Trump and the Republican party for "refusing to concede a presidential election they clearly and decisively lost." During last night's episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, the comedian said that Trump is "shredding American democracy" with unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud.

“Donald Trump and the Republican Party are not only refusing to concede a presidential election they clearly and decisively lost,” Meyers said. “They’re acting as if Trump will remain in office despite the will of the people.”

“The Trump team’s lies are so transparent,” Meyers added, “even Fox News cut away from one of their press conferences.”

“Man, it’s rough when your most sycophantic supporters bail,” Meyers added. He compared the situation to “watching Smithers say, ‘Shut the f**k up, old man!’” to Mr. Burns.

Meyers went on to attack White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for making baseless claims that the Democrats are “welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting.”

He said that McEnany “who incidentally gets paid with your tax dollars to show up and lie at Trump campaign events,” could not back up her claims but instead asked for "patience."

“I’m sorry, Donald Trump wants patience?” Meyers asked. “The least patient man on the face of the Earth? The guy who literally shoved his way to the front of a group of NATO leaders like a bridesmaid trying to catch a bouquet at a wedding? A man so patient he tried to close his umbrella once and then just left it on the stairs to the plane?”

Meyers went on to conclude: “Trump promised for months that this is exactly how he’d react if he lost. Now he’s doing it and shredding American democracy in the process. If anything, this might be the first time he’s delivering on what he promised.”
