Seth Meyers is pretty sure he's found a way for protesters to really get to Donald Trump, and it involves mocking him.
On Monday's Late Night, the host determined that being called a "racist" and a "fascist" by demonstrators isn't enough to rattle Trump. Meyers diagnosed Trump as a narcissist, and said the real way to get under his skin is to continue to ridicule him with passive-aggressive signs like this one spotted in Chicago: "Trump puts ketchup on his hot dogs" — a mortal sin in that town.
Meyers suggests such button-pushing slogans as "I'm sorry, you look familiar, where do I know you from?" and "What is your rage compensating for?" That type of talk will "chip away at his ego," Meyers explains, since he hates being laughed at — as proof, Meyers shows a clip of a very unamused Trump scowling after Meyers delivers a joke at his expense during the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner. "That was five years ago," Meyers says. "He still eggs my house every morning — with the best eggs. He Fabergé eggs my house." Watch the video below. Catherine Garcia
