Seth Meyers mocks Hillary Clinton for blaming Bernie Sanders for 'lasting damage' to her campaign

On Late Night With Seth Meyers, the host had no patience for Hillary Clinton and her book What Happened, in which Clinton blamed Bernie Sanders for causing “lasting damage” to her campaign and paving the way for President Trump’s “Crooked Hillary” campaign. Meyers called out Clinton, saying, “Don’t blame Bernie because Donald Trump called you names. I promise you he was going to do that anyway.”

Clinton certainly fought a worthy campaign, but there does seem to be a lot of room for placing blame for her loss on a system that’s way older than Sanders. Meyers said, “Bernie is not the reason you lost. You know how I know that? You beat Trump by three million votes. If you want to blame something ancient, blame the electoral college. We shouldn’t be running the most important elections on earth on a system designed over 200 years ago to appease slave owners. If American Idol ran their voting like this, we’d all have a Sanjaya CD in our cars.”

For Meyers, Clinton’s comments only cause more damage. He thinks bringing Democrats and liberals together to stand up against incompetence in Washington is the best way to effect change. Meyers said, “This isn’t the time to complain because ‘Senator Woodstock’ didn’t roll over for you. Hey, if anything, he helped make you a better candidate.”

Late Night With Seth Meyers airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.
