‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’: Amber Ruffin Takes on Charlottesville in Terrific “Safe Space” Video

When Jon Stewart left The Daily Show, there was a massive void on television for a specific kind of political commentary—one that was humorous, insightful, but also cathartically genuine. Seth Meyers quickly ramped up the political angle of Late Night with Seth Meyers in that wake, and the show has now become a nightly must-watch for its incisive, funny, and incredibly fast commentary. Through segments like "A Closer Look," Meyers and his team have found great ways to expound on recent pieces of news that are hilarious but also pointed and, like Stewart’s Daily Show, cathartic. But Meyers also understands his own privilege, and one of the reasons Late Night stands out is he gives voice to writers like Amber Ruffin and Jenny Hagel to offer their points of view on topics. Ruffin in particular gets the spotlight quite a bit and shines bright, but she may have just delivered her best work yet on a segment called "Amber’s Late Night Safe Space." In it, Ruffin takes Meyers to her "safe space" she’s created in the office when the goings-on get too intense, and in this video Ruffin takes terrific aim at just how discouraging, frustrating, and demoralizing things can get—specifically in the wake of the Charlottesville white nationalist violence.
