Seth Meyers Says What We’re All Thinking About Trump’s Appointment Of Steve Bannon


“Don’t talk about him like he’s pineapple on pizza”

As many Americans and Lena Dunham fumed and fretted over Donald Trump’s controversial (to put it mildly) choice to appoint noted white supremacist and former Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon as his chief strategist, a big portion of the media worked to dull down the horror factor of Trump’s selection. Not Seth Meyers. The Late Night host, who emerged as one of Trump’s chief critics during the election, continued to pummel the president-elect over his extremely worrisome behavior since his victory last Tuesday, namely his implicit endorsement of Bannon’s deeply troubling beliefs.

After showing a montage of pundits saying they were ready to give Donald Trump a chance, Meyers then cut to news reports of Bannon’s appointment. “Well, we gave him a chance. Bye, chance! Thanks for stopping by! Good to see you chance!” Meyers said. And speaking directly to those who sought to normalize the Bannon appointment, Meyers had one message. “A quick side note to everyone referring to Bannon as ‘controversial:’ He’s not ‘controversial,’ he’s a white nationalist and an anti-Semite,” Meyers said, truthfully, about Bannon. “Don’t talk about him like he’s pineapple on pizza.” The rest of the segment, in which Meyers runs through some genuinely freaky tidbits to emerge out of Trump's first week is depressing, but it's also heartening to know that there are voices like Meyers' that are willing to call him out.

The company announced its sustainability plan, and it's pretty impressive

Yesterday, Zara, one of the largest global fashion retailers, announced its sustainability plan for the next five years, which includes its goal to make its collections from 100 percent sustainable materials before the year 2025.
