Unlike his contemporary Jimmy Fallon, who hosted the Globes in 2017 and who tends to keep his humor light, the eponymous host of Late Night With Seth Meyers has no qualms about calling out injustice and dragging the Trump administration.
Meyers told People that with the sexual harassment scandals rocking Hollywood and the #MeToo movement that has prompted attendees to promise to wear black in solidarity with survivors of sexual abuse, there’s plenty of politics to pull from right in his own backyard.
“With the monologue, as far as talking about anything in the news right now, it seems like this year more than ever Hollywood has its own internal politics that obviously deserve to be talked about,” Meyers aid. “Going into it our focus is far more on the worlds that make these films and less on anything that’s happening in Washington.”
Viewers looking for a few good swipes at Trump, never fear. Meyers said that as long as Trump continues to behave as he does, he will be called out.
