Seth Meyers Donald Trump Takedown: ‘Late Night Show’ Host Celebrates Hillary Clinton Defeat? TV Personality Makes Tempting Offer For New US President-Elect

Donald Trump's rise to the White House has been a stunning upset to several liberal Democrats who have been rooting for Hillary Clinton's win. Ordinary folk, celebrities and late-night hosts alike have all since expressed their sentiments on the extraordinary circumstances that America is in right now.

But perhaps one of the most notable reactions were that of Seth Meyers, "Saturday Night Live" alumnus and current host of "Late Night with Seth Meyers." The comedian hadn't minced his words against Donald Trump when he was still running for president, but as it became clear that the business mogul was to become the 45th President of the United States, he offered his congratulations--and offered the president-elect an offer he can't refuse.

Sobering up

Seth Meyers opened "Late Night with Seth Meyers" by saying he didn't think that the Republican's campaign for the presidency was nothing more than a publicity stunt. He hoped, therefore, that Donald Trump proves to be a great president.

Seth Meyers also became briefly emotional as he recounted his and his mother's dashed hopes to see Hillary Clinton finally shatter the highest glass ceiling. He said they continue to hope to see a woman become the president of the United States someday.

An offer Trump can't refuse

Most notably, however, Seth Meyers addressed President-elect Donald Trump, saying his previous offer of an 18-episode order from NBC with him still stood, according to The Rolling Stone. If ever, Seth Meyer joked, Donald Trump ever became fazed by the "length of the wall" he has to build, then the business mogul only has to call him and NBC will give him the 10 p.m. slot--right before "The Voice."

The offer, Seth Meyers said, stood only until Donald Trump's inauguration day as the 45th President of the United States. "Think about it," Meyers joked. Will the former host of "The Apprentice" take it?
