Seth Myers is making clear this week that he's not worried about turning away supporters of President Trump. Late Night viewers who support Trump are going to have "get off the fence" and choose one or the other, he said Wednesday, echoing Eminem's ultimatum. "Do you support him? Or do you support this show that constantly mocks and denigrates anything about him? I know it's a tough call, but the time has come to make a decision," he quipped, per the Hill. He closed the segment with a jokey rap: "My name is Seth and I’m here to say, if you like Trump then go away."

Myers slammed Trump in more serious fashion on Thursday in his "A Closer Look" segment, lumping the president in with Harvey Weinstein as part of the "toxic culture of male entitlement" he said they represent. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the host "barely concealed his disgust" at the behavior of both men. Trump's "campaign and now his presidency has in many ways been a performance of dominance, a performance that in many cases has been explicitly misogynous," he said. He described the Weinstein scandal as "yet another window into the entitled mind of powerful, predatory men who are used to operating without consequence." (More Seth Meyers stories.)
