Seth Meyers went over the political demagoguery against Syrian refugees. The real highlight was Ted Cruz — whom Seth recalled on the show months ago reminiscing that his father came to the United States after being a Molotov cocktail-throwing Cuban revolutionary for communist leader Fidel Castro.

Larry Wilmore looked at that crazy map of the United States that Ben Carson’s campaign posted to oppose Syrian refugees, and got to the bottom of why nobody on the campaign brought up the problem: They didn’t want to get stabbed.

But that hasn’t stopped Republicans from lying. And as we get closer to Election Day, we already know it’ll only get worse.

When former President Donald Trump appeared on right-wing Newsmax TV this week, he was asked about the 2022 midterms and the things he would like Republicans to prioritize if they regain control of the U.S. House of Representatives. But Trump didn’t offer any specific policy recommendations should the GOP have a House majority in 2023 and seemed to ignore the substance of the question entirely.

Newsmax TV, a Fox News competitor, prides itself on being more right-wing and more pro-Trump than Fox News and Fox Business
