Following President Trump's State of the Union address, which took place on the rescheduled date of Feb. 5, Late Night host Seth Meyers ran a live special live episode in response to the speech.

This is the fourth time that Late Night has run a live episode; the last one took place during the 2016 presidential election and included a "Closer Look" segment that discussed the debate.

In keeping with tradition, Tuesday's show included a SOTU-themed "Closer Look." Later, Meyers was joined by Orange is the New Black actress Taylor Schilling and political commentator Ana Navarro.

During the "Closer Look" segment, Meyers noted that the theme of the night's speech was "unity" and so, "to honor that theme, President Trump attacked Democrats." Meyers also noted that in the days leading up to the speech, Trump repeatedly kept noting that the "wall" he wants, between the U.S. and Mexico, should have been built earlier than his presidency.

"If anyone should be happy that no one built a wall, it should be you. What would people shout at your rallies, 'Maintain the previously erected wall?

Meyers also broached the subject of Trump's crooked tie, a subject of much sniggering on social media as Trump took the stage on Tuesday night. "Trump is so unpopular even his tie has moved to the left," Meyers joked.
