"Trump is a demagogue running entirely on personality": Seth Meyers destroys idea that Sanders and Trump are two sides of same coin

The only things they have in common is they are bad at using combs and they both pronounce it 'yuge,'" he said

Last night, "Late Night" host Seth Meyers took a Closer Look at the New Hampshire primary.

Starting with the winners, Meyers informed viewers that just because Trump and Sanders won their respective parties, it "does not mean they are the same type of candidate."

"Sanders has run a serious campaign on issues," Meyers explained. While "Trump is a demagogue running entirely on personality, who has contradicted himself on almost everything he's ever said."

"The only things they have in common is they are bad at using combs and they both pronounce it 'yuge,'" Meyers added.

Among the night's losers: Jeb Bush, who spent $36 million in New Hampshire to take fourth place.

"Stop treating fourth place like a victory," Meyers said. "At horse races, it's not 'win, place, show, and Jeb.'"
