"If he wanted to leave, [he should have when] he was at the head of the group … to make room for the other candidates. That was the time to go. I didn't like what he did but if he wanted to walk out, walk."
Meyers, who is also a columnist for the New York Daily News newspaper, said that after watching the second GOP presidential debate, he believes more candidates should exit.
"There are a lot of people on that stage who shouldn't be there, including the other person that the mass media is claiming is so good," Meyers told Lynch.
"[New Jersey Gov.] Chris Christie should be off the stage. Go back to New Jersey!"
