On Tuesday's Late Night, Seth Meyers gave his "closer look" treatment to Hillary Clinton's never-ending email controversy — but he began with Donald Trump, and a focus group of former Trump supporters who had very little good to say about their former candidate (plus a chuckle over Trump's 12-year-old county campaign organizer). Candy digested, Meyers turned to the meat and potatoes — or, rather, the 15,000 new Clinton emails the FBI is releasing before the election. "How many emails does Hillary Clinton have that she can just miss 15,000?" Meyers asked.

He spent the rest of the segment on a recently released batch of Clinton emails focusing on ties between her State Department and the Clinton Foundation. "Words like 'favor' and 'take care of' shouldn't be in State Department emails, they should be in the last 5 minutes of a Sopranos episode," Meyers said of one exchange. "But by far, the best email uncovered in this latest batch was one with the subject line 'Bono/NASA,'" a subject line so great that "if you want someone to open an email with a virus, that's what you put."
