Late-night TV host Seth Meyers spent a segment of his program Thursday knocking Peter Schweizer's new book Clinton Cash. The Schweizer book documents the web of conflicts of interest and secretive cash flows that surround the foundations and initiatives of Bill and Hillary Clinton. News outlets as diverse as the New York Times and Fox News have covered aspects of the book.
Meyers uses this coverage to point out to his audience on NBC's Late Night that Schweizer and others who write books about Clinton scandals suffer from bias against, well, the Clintons. Watch the video below:
"Clinton Cash comes out on May 5, and it will be interesting to see if any of the allegations hold up under scrutiny," says the former Saturday Night Live writer and performer. "If they do, the question will be, will they affect Hillary's campaign? They might not. She's been attacked for 25 years. It's possible she's built up an immunity to everything."
It's a remarkably friendly monologue toward the Clintons, and Twitter user BT suggests there may be a reason why: Meyers hosted last year's Clinton Global Initiative Awards. Check out the tweet below:
