The anti-Trump late night host Seth Meyers was recently speaking at a fashion event and decided to make some jokes at the expense of Ivanka Trump. The audience didn’t bite, though. In fact, they stayed completely silent.

Seth Meyers awkwardly jokes about Ivanka, Melania fashion at CFDA Awards
Despite his reputation for cracking down on the Trump administration, Seth Meyers mostly stuck to a politics-free monologue at Monday’s Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards, where he served as host.
But in-between the jokes about romphims and Balenciaga’s Ikea bag at the New York City gala, known as “fashion’s Oscars” for its high-wattage attendees, the Late Night host included some style-related Trump content in his opening speech, to mixed results from the audience.
“Abercrombie & Fitch has announced it’s putting itself up for sale. Meanwhile, thanks to Donald Trump, the United States has become a Banana Republic,” he said, the room staying quiet…
But the crowd didn’t react as favorably to Meyers’ follow-up joke about Ivanka Trump’s Nordstrom line. “Big year for fashion designer Ivanka Trump,” he said. “I’ve heard her clothes are flying off the shelves in Nordstrom.”

Idiots like Meyers just assume the whole country is as obsessed with hating Trump as they are. They’re wrong and this is proof.
