Seth Meyers, one of Donald Trump’s most consistent critics on late night television, has been at the President-elect’s neck ever since the 2016 campaign kicked off. Last night, he examined Trump’s business ties to help better understand if he could be violating the country’s Constitution.

“Because Donald Trump refused to release his tax returns, we know very little about how his financial dealings might affect his presidency. But Trump has been able to distract from those questions by spurring speculation about his Cabinet picks,” Meyers told his audience on Tuesday night. “Every time he hints at a new name, the media runs wild with it.”

He also explained the importance of the press and their responsibility to hold the president-elect accountable for his actions. He also gifted his audience with this comparison, “A bullying authoritarian who meets in secret with foreign leaders, who receives gifts of gold? We’re probably a month away from Trump growing out a Saddam Hussein mustache.” Watch Seth Meyers’ full “Closer Look” segment below.
