"Late Night" host Seth Meyers last night served the GOP the hard truth that Donald Trump is "the candidate their voters want."

Meyers devoted his now-daily "Closer Look" segment to the ever-surging Trump train, after he took Indiana on Tuesday and, within 24 hours, said goodbye to Ted Cruz and John Kasich.

"This should be a serious moment of introspection for Republicans," Meyers said. "How did they get to the point where they're handing their nomination to a race-baiting, xenophobic serial liar who peddles conspiracy theories ... ?"

"This is no accident," he continued. "The Republican party is the party of Donald Trump and has been for years."
