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.’”

Could it be because those accusing others of propigating fake news have in fact been found out to be the perpetrators?

Just as soon as the left ceases creating fake news, we’ll retire the term.
