Meyers: Trump Leads in Polls Because ‘That’s Just the Liquor Talking’

‘You don’t have to worry because it’s very different telling someone you’re gonna vote for Donald Trump and voting for Donald Trump’

MEYERS: "But here’s the thing, you don’t have to worry because it’s very different telling someone you’re gonna vote for Donald Trump and voting for Donald Trump. A lot of people answer their phones, they say, ‘Who are you going to vote for, for president?’ People are just angry in general. They’re just angry at politics as usual. So they say, ‘I’m gonna vote for Donald Trump!’ And then they hang up. And that just counts in the polls. That now counts in the polls. But saying that on the phone is a lot like when you go drinking and you go — ‘I’m gonna — on Monday, I’m gonna tell my boss I quit!’ And then you come in — you come in on Monday, and your boss says, ‘How was your weekend?’ You go, ‘Oh, fine, Mr. Peterson.” That’s all that happens. And that’s what’s gonna happen when it comes time to vote in the primaries. People are gonna be standing outside the voting booth and say, ‘I’m voting for Donald Trump because — politics as usual I’m tired of it!” And then you’ll go in, and as soon as you close the curtain you’re just gonna sober up — and be like, ‘Oh, my god what was I talking about? That’s crazy. Oh — Jeb Bush, I can’t believe I almost did that. That’s nuts.’ And then you’ll walk back out and close the curtain and you’ll tell everybody, ‘I voted for Donald Trump!’ ‘Cause none of that matters. But I’m just saying, it’s fine. He’s not going to win anything. It’s fine. You don’t have to listen to the polls. ‘Cause that’s just the liquor talking.”
