In a segment on Tuesday’s “Late Night” skewering Donald Trump, host Seth Meyers declared that “as long as the Washington Post is banned from Donald Trump’s campaign, Donald Trump will be banned from ever coming on this show.”

The “Saturday Night Live” alumnus expressed his frustration at the Republican presumptive presidential nominee’s doubling down on his earlier call for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration.

“When it comes to bigotry, Trump keeps upping his game,” Mr. Meyers complained. “Trump’s vague innuendo is no accident. This is a strategy he uses to try to appeal to the outer fringes while also avoiding accountability.”

While Mr. Meyers’s “ban” on Trump is largely tongue-in-cheek, his outspokenly liberal tack is in line with his recent history of denouncing conservative policy proposals, such as the so-called bathroom bill in North Carolina, which he ridiculed in May.
