Seth Meyers: a closer look at the Iran prisoner swap

Hypocrisy, thy name is Republican. :)

OK, that's lame, no doubt. But true, nonetheless. And Seth Meyers just gets better and better at pointing out that hypocrisy.

Republicans seem to think that foreigners will do anything you want if you just speak English loudly enough. "Iran, release your prisoners!"  "Mexico, pay for the wall I plan to build!"  "Russia, get out of the Ukraine!"

Negotiations don't mean that the other side has to get something, too, right?

And then, of course, you get the deliberate lies, like from Ted Cruz (none of the prisoners we released were even accused of terrorism) or Donald Trump ("I never said it was never going to happen"). Do Republicans have no shame?

As Meyers points out, at least there still are moderates in Iran, unlike in the GOP.
