Former President Bill Clinton was a guest on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday night and the discussion quickly turned to the events of last week in Paris, France.

This part of the conversation lasts about 5 minutes and is filled with thoughtful information – particularly President Clinton’s recognition of the terrible double standard that exists with most Muslim migrants.
