Seth Meyers says it perfectly, again: Watch him trash Trump for slamming slain soldier's parents

"A pocket Constitution is perfect for Trump, because it will look regular-sized in his tiny hands," Meyers said

"Late Night" host Seth Meyers on Monday addressed the snowballing feud between GOP nominee Donald Trump and Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the gold star parents of Capt. Humayun Khan, an American soldier of Muslim faith who was killed in Iraq in 2004.

Speaking at the Democratic National Convention last week, Khizr Khan held up a pocket Constitution and suggested Trump had never read it.

"And of course a pocket Constitution is perfect for Trump," Meyers said, "because it will look regular-sized in his tiny hands."

In response to the attacks, Trump released a statement inadvertently confirming that the billionaire either never read the Constitution or skipped over the First Amendment: "Mr. Khan who has never met me, has no right to stand in front of millions of people and claim I have never read the Constitution."

"If you're going to insist you've read the Constitution, maybe don't swing and miss at the First Amendment," Meyers said. "That's like saying, 'I know the Ten Commandments, just ask my neighbor's wife, who I covet.'"
