"Late Night" host Seth Meyers on Wednesday took "A Closer Look" at GOP nominee Donald Trump's repeated (and hypocritical, it turns out) accusation that his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, used her foundation to run a "pay-for-play" scheme.

"One reason you've probably heard less about [the Trump Foundation] is that it's not exactly clear what the Trump Foundation does," Meyers explained. "The Clinton Foundation provides life-saving care to AIDS patients, while the Trump Foundation once gave $250 to the Special Olympics and $100 to the March of Dimes."

Meanwhile, he added, Trump "spent the entire primary season openly bragging about how he was able to buy politicians and get whatever he wanted from them by giving them money" — in other words paying to play.
