Seth Meyers Takes A Closer Look At The NRA Endorsement O Donald Trump

Seth Meyers, host of NBC's "Late Night," takes note of Donald Trump's flip-flop on gun rights over the years in an attempt to pander to the NRA for the organization's coveted endorsement.

From International Business Times:
Meyers noted how before entering the presidential race, Trump previously supported an assault rifle ban and expanded background checks — far from the standard Republican unwillingness to disagree with any part of the NRA platform. However, on the campaign trail Trump has been promising that as president he would be unapologetically anti-gun control.

"Trump's ham-fisted attempts to pander to gun owners were apparently enough to sway the NRA, which announced its endorsement of him Friday," said Meyers. "You might think, 'How can an organization that is devoted to defending second amendment rights back a candidate who has been so inconsistent on that issue?'
