Seth Meyers pulled no punches Tuesday when it came to discussing Rep. Steve King’s (R-Iowa) recent tweet lauding white nationalism.

The “Late Night” host noted how the post ― in which King stated that “we can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies” ― had earned a “shout-out” from former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke to explain why people were calling it “overtly racist.”

“As a general rule of thumb, when the former grand wizard of the K.K.K. chimes in to say he agrees with you, it’s time to re-examine your stance,” Meyers said. 

The late night host retorted that Beyoncé’s unborn twins may actually save civilization. He also suggested that King may have now surpassed “the guy who wrote Cujo as now being the world’s “scariest Stephen King.”
