Watch Seth Meyers Channel Eminem with a Stinging Rap Ultimatum of His Own

Eminem’s anti-Trump rap appears to have transformed him into late-night’s new muse. At least, he seems to have inspired Seth Meyers, who dropped some bars of his own as he discussed the rapper’s concluding ultimatum, in which he urged fans to choose between himself and Trump.

“Powerful stuff,” Meyers said after rolling a clip from Eminem’s cypher. “I was inspired by that, so tonight I say to any fans of this show who are also big fans of Donald Trump, it’s time to make a decision, guys. Get off the fence. Do you support him, or do you support this show that constantly mocks and denigrates everything about him? I know it’s a tough call, but the time has come to make a decision.”

And then came his purposefully awful attempt at rap: “My name is Seth, and I’m here to say, if you like Trump, then go away.”

The moment was reminiscent of Meyers’s 2016 fake Trump ban, in which the comedian pretended to bar the then presidential candidate from appearing on his show—which, Meyers emphasized, Trump never would have appeared on in the first place. But Meyers wasn’t the only comedian making hay of Eminem’s explosive video: ahead of Late Night, Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show concocted a faux Trump clap-back video by editing together old clips of the president making random noises. (To be fair, we’re guessing the spliced-together rebuttal is about as good as Trump’s delivery would have been in real life.)

Over on CBS, James Corden also joked about the video, noting that it was shot in a parking garage, which made it “a really intense shoot—not because Eminem was taking down the president, but because they had to get the whole crew out of the parking structure in under an hour, or it was going to be 20 bucks a car.”

That thought also seemed to have occurred to the writers over at Late Show. Stephen Colbert’s show opened with a satirical video in which a couple struggled to exit the parking garage, but was blocked by Eminem’s shoot.

“Is that Macklemore?” the woman in the car wonders. “I think that’s Macklemore!”

“Well, I don’t care who it is!” the man behind the wheel says. “He’s in the way, and if we’re not out of here in the next two minutes, I get charged extra for parking.”

By the end, though, Eminem won them over—even though they still thought he was Macklemore.

Full ScreenPhotos:7 TV Characters Who Have Gotten Stuck on a Subway Just Like You
Ilana and Abbi, *Broad City*

Ilana and Abbi, Broad City

No tale of two girls’ misadventures in the Big Apple would be complete without at least one ill-fated subway ride. In Season 3, Abbi and Ilana experience just that in an episode titled, appropriately, “Getting There.” They just want to get to the airport—but as any New Yorker knows, the train has other plans.

Arnold and Friends, *Hey Arnold*

Arnold and Friends, Hey Arnold

There’s an entire episode of this 90s Nickelodeon staple about Arnold and the gang getting on a subway after dark, thanks to a movie that ran long. There’s a claustrophobic woman chanting “big open spaces,” a homeless guy telling everyone to “get out of my house,” and a dog that unexpectedly gives birth to puppies, bringing everyone together. The episode ends with everyone holding hands and singing—which, though imaginative, is perhaps the most unrealistic thing this cartoon ever did.

Cory Matthews, *Boy Meets World*

Cory Matthews, Boy Meets World

What was it with 90s sitcoms and trapping people in trains? Cory, Sean, Eric, and Topanga get stuck underground on their way to a New Year’s Eve party—as a woman gives birth. But hey, they also manage to throw their own party on the train and find a P.S.A. starring Mr. Feeny.

The Tanner Family, *Full House*

The Tanner Family, Full House

Poor Uncle Jesse just wants to get to his long-delayed high-school graduation, but alas, Team Tanner gets stuck on a motionless B.A.R.T. train instead. (See, the subway is awful no matter where you live!) The silver lining? Jess convinces an aspiring high-school drop-out to stay in school, and ends up having an underground graduation ceremony of his own. Fun fact: something similar happened to a real-life Hunter College student this summer.

Oscar and Felix, *The Odd Couple*

Oscar and Felix, The Odd Couple

This one’s an oldie but a goodie: Oscar gets tired of New York City, so Felix tries to show him what a magical place this town can be. Unfortunately, they get stuck in a subway car with some very unfriendly company—including a woman who carries a defective flashlight just so she can hit people over the head with it, should they get too close. She’s clearly well versed in New York etiquette.

The Golden Girls

The Golden Girls

This one isn’t technically a subway story, but it’s a Golden Girls classic: remember the time our favorite four ladies got stuck at a train station overnight? They recall the incident in a flashback episode called “Bedtime Story” back in Season 2, remembering how they were stranded by the one train station from which trains actually left early. That’s how you know it’s fiction.

Elaine Benes, *Seinfeld*

Elaine Benes, Seinfeld

Remember when poor Elaine gets stuck on a train that just keeps stopping? She also experiences that horror that every New Yorker knows so well: the lights cut out as the train sits motionless. Her silent, internal, vastly relatable screams of profane frustration will forever ring in our ears.
