Late Night host Seth Meyers said that he thinks “fake news” as a term is “busted,” and called for Americans to retire the term because of President-elect Donald Trump.
The President-elect recently used the term “fake news” at a press conference to refer to news outlet CNN and attack claims in a dossier that Russia has compromising information on him.
During his segment, Meyers explained,
“Today, Trump called these new reports ‘fake news,’ so despite an incredibly short run, I think it is time to retire that term, but now everyone is using it for everything.”
Meyers continued, saying that
“‘Fake news’ as a term is busted… It was like the first time you heard your dad say ‘fo shizzle’ and immediately thought, ‘Well, that’s over.’”
