12:38 am
approval rating. [ light laughter ] senate minority leader mitch mcconnell did not attend today's signing ceremony for the bipartisan infrastructure bill but in another middle finger to the right, big bird did. [ laughter ] former president trump release a statement on saturday encouraging primary campaigns against republican house members who voted for the bipartisan infrastructure bill and said, quote, "saving america starts by saving the gop from rinos, sellouts and known losers. take it from him, all of those things [ laughter ] in his new book former new jersey governor chris christie writes that while he was hospitalized with the coronavirus, former president trump called him to ask him, quote, "are you going to say you got it from me?" [ laughter ] aww, that's actually -- that's actually sweet just like the card he sent with melania was pregnant [ audience oohs [ laughter ] now, after senator
12:39 am
bernie sanders tweeted, quote, "we must demand that the extremely wealth pay their fair share," tesla ceo elon musk replied yesterday and said, quote, "i keep forgetting that you're still alive." [ laughter ] wow. well, that is one of the side effects. [ laughter ] vice-president kamala harris is reportedly told confidantes that she feels constrained with what she is able to do politically in the biden administration "same," said biden [ laughter ] on a new episode of his podcast, joe rogan said that he is so flexible he is capable of performing oral sex on himself, or as he calls it, "doing my own research." [ laughter ] and finally, buckingham palace announced yesterday that britain's queen elizabeth skipped a remembrance day ceremony due to a sprained back muscle apparently she herd that rogan story and wanted to give it a shot [ laughter ]
12:40 am
picture it picture it [ laughter ] that was the monologue i mean, we're not doing another one. you guys, we have an incredible show for you tonight this weekend "ghost busters: afterlife" is in theaters and we have three of the original ghostbusters here with us in studio that's right bill murray, dan aykroyd and ernie hudson will all be here. [ cheers and applause and she is one of our favorites. you know her from classics like "unbreakable kimmy schmidt," "the office," and "bridesmaids." she is "home sweet home alone," which is out now ellie temper will be here. [ cheers and applause but before we all get to that, steve bannon, the former chief strategist to president trump, turned himself in to federal authorities today after being indicted for defying a congressional subpoena trump himself, meanwhile, defended the violent mob that chanted "hang mike pence" during
12:41 am
the insurrection on january 6th. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause >> seth: just to get you up to speed, you guys remember steve bannon the former chief strategist to president trump who looks like his morning beauty routine is to take a peek inside the ark of the covenant [ laughter ] by the way, i know when i reference that scene, that most people think of the guy whose face melted. but let's not forget, a dude's head also exploded [ laughter ] that dude doesn't get enough recognition, probably because his head exploded. i bet when he goes to conventions now to sign autographs he's like, "it's me, head explosion guy from 'raiders of the lost ark.'" and people are like, "sorry, we don't recognize you with a head." and he's like, "damn you, george lucas and your fantastic special effects team!" i'm just kidding that guy's name is paul freeman, and he's outstanding [ laughter ] boy, we got to start tying our tangents into the rest of the show [ light laughter ] i'll land the next one [ laughter ] bannon has already been arrested once before. it was last year during trump's presidency and he was arrested
12:42 am
by postal service inspectors aboard a chinese billionaire's yacht for allegedly scamming trump supporters who donated to a crowd funding scheme to buy trump's wall or, as they call that in the law enforcement community, "a code six." >> steve bannon and three other men have been arrested, and indicted and charged in relation to their role in a non-profit organization called "we build the wall." what the indictment here is alleging is that bannon and these others were skimming some of the proceeds from that fundraising for themselves >> the court documents basically say that this thing was pretty suspect from -- almost from the beginning. >> seth: yeah, i would say so. the only way it could have been a more obviously a scam is if people who donated were offered an extended car warranty and fake boner pills for life. [ laughter ] so bannon was arrested for scamming trump's own supporters, but then trump pardoned him at the last minute, and bannon made this mysterious prediction the day before the january 6th insurrection >> it's not going to happen like you think it's going to happen okay
12:43 am
it's going to be quite extraordinarily different. and all i can say is strap in. the war room of posse. you've made this happen. and tomorrow it's game day so strap in. all hell is going to break loose tomorrow just understand this all hell is going to break loose tomorrow >> seth: i mean, i'm no detective, but it sounds like he knew something was up. [ laughter ] that's like if nicole kidman had found a text on hugh grant's phone saying, "took care of my mistress problem last night" with a hammer emoji. [ laughter ] and if you haven't seen "the undoing" yet, i didn't necessarily just spoil it. you don't know what he did with the hammer maybe he built his mistress a house? spoiler alert, he didn't build her a house. [ laughter ] besides, you don't watch "the undoing" for the mystery you watch it for the scarves nicole kidman layers scarves the way bannon layers collared shirts and will you look at that? we have landed the tangent [ cheers and applause i mean, i think it almost -- i think technically it counts as a segue now. so naturally the congressional committee investigating the
12:44 am
january 6th insurrection wanted to talk to bannon. but he defied the subpoena at trump's request, congress held him in contempt, a grand jury indicted him, and today he turned himself in. although this time it was much less glamorous than getting arrested on a billionaire's yacht. >> trump ally, former white house adviser steve bannon, he is expected to surrender to authorities after being indicted on two counts of contempt of congress this for defying requests from january 6th committee for testimony and documents. defying subpoenas. you're looking at live pictures of bannon's home right now >> seth: i gotta say, bannon's house looks a lot more normal than i was expecting i thought it was gonna be a little more like a burrow, or a volcano in the shape of a skull. [ laughter ] or he'd layer them like his shirts, and it would be a house inside a second slightly larger house. i also know we just made that joke so bannon's house looks normal on the outside, although i bet you it's much weirder inside it's like when you finally meet a neighbor who keeps to himself, and you think he must be just a quiet guy. and then you go inside and his
12:45 am
sink is filled with old newspaper, his fridge is stuffed with takeout containers, and the shelves are filled with antique ceramic pigs also, your neighbor is rudy giuliani. "you want some mayo? [ laughter ] you want some mayo i scraped off the mold it's mostly jar now. and then when bannon finally showed up at the courthouse this morning to turn himself in, he's -- he, of course, couldn't help but shout some incomprehensible anti-government babel into a camera. >> we're taking down the biden regime every day the focus, you got raheem kassam today. you got dr. peter navarro, captain bannon you're gonna have boris epshteyn, the whole show intense. we got polling out, economic data out everything i want you guys to stay focused on message remember, signal, not noise. this is all noise, that's signal >> seth: wait, i'm sorry you call yourself captain bannon now? [ laughter ] that's like an ironic nickname they give the guy who rinses out the chum buckets down at the marina "hurry up with those buckets, bannon, we got barnacles to scrape oh excuse me captain bannon." [ laughter ]
12:46 am
also, it really undercuts your attempt at defiance and bravado when there's a guy right behind you holding up a sign that says "coup plotter. [ laughter ] it's gotta be a bummer for a guy like bannon, who thinks he's an evil mastermind to get upstaged by a sign that clearly took five minutes to make. or one of bannon's neighbors made it months ago, just in case "oh, what's that for, honey? "oh, i don't know. i just feel like we might need it some day. [ laughter ] bannon definitely likes to think of himself as a logan roy-type, but he's more like a coked up flunky who would get hired to help cousin greg shred some documents and accidentally screw it up. "um, be i'm pretty sure that, uhh, tom told us not to peruse any of the confidential materials or, in his words, 'i'd have to eat a thousand [bleep].'" [ laughter ] this is one step in the process of holding trump and his cronies accountable for their assault on democracy. and it's absolutely necessary because bannon's not alone virtually the entire institutional republican party has made it clear they remain fully devoted to donald trump
12:47 am
and his ongoing attempt to unravel our constitutional order. and i'm not just talking about the obvious crazies -- the matt gaetzs, marjorie taylor greenes, paul gosars, and louie gohmerts of the world -- or as gaetz called them last week -- >> the killer gs we've heard of the killer bees but now it's greene, gosar, gaetz, goode, gohmert. >> seth: "the killer gs" is a good name for that group, as every time you remember they're elected officials, your reaction is, "kill me, or jeeeesus. [ laughter ] also, you'd think if you had within the last 12 months helped foment a violent insurrection where rioters actually chanted they wanted to kill the vice-president, you'd wouldn't go by the killer gs. that's a little too on the nose. it's like we found out "the new york times" spelling bee was designed by the zodiac killer, which wouldn't surprise me [ laughter ] only a seriously twisted mind could come up with such an elaborate form of psychological torture. yesterday i spent the entire day trying to find every last word in the puzzle, and when my kids asked me what they could do to get me to make them dinner i
12:48 am
said, "find me a word that uses all seven of these letters." [ laughter ] because this center one is a real >> killer g. >> seth: i mean, seriously [ laughter ] the killer gs is one of the dumbest names i've ever heard. did you steal it from a senior citizens' bowling team "that's a cute name, grandpa where did you come up with it? well, the g stands for grandpa and the killer -- well, let's just say i did some things in my youth that i'm not too proud of. times were tough back then, and we had to survive. i got involved in things i didn't understand, gambling, crime, drugs i'm talking cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin. once you ride the black dragon, there's no telling what you'll do i choked a man for a pint of gin. he was a drifter i saw the life drain out of his eyes, his body go limp in my hands, buried the body in the pine barrens i left -- i left so many clues." [ laughter ] technically it's a pangram." but it's not just the so-called killer gs who have fully bought into trump and the gop's ongoing coup for example, last week, abc released audio of an interview in which trump defended the
12:49 am
violent mob that stormed the capitol and chanted "hang mike pence" after pence declined to overturn the election results. >> were you worried about him during that siege? were you worried about his safety >> no, i thought he was well-protected, and i had heard that he was in good shape. no, because i had heard that he was in very good shape but -- but -- no, i think -- >> because you heard those chants, that was terrible. >> he could have -- well, the people were very angry >> they were saying, "hang mike pence." >> because it's -- it's common sense -- it's common sense that you're supposed to protect -- how can you -- if you know a vote is fraudulent, right? >> yeah. >> how can you pass on a fraudulent vote to congress? >> seth: the most shocking thing about that clip is, when i heard it, my reaction was, "all right, that tracks. i mean, it checks pretty much every trump box. i wasn't worried about another person's safety. they kind of deserved it also, did i mention that i won the election at this point, the only way i'm clicking on a link to trump audio is if the headline reads, "trump exhibits empathy and remorse on hannity."
12:50 am
[ laughter ] "i [ bleep ] up, sean. i [ bleep ] up bad, and i put my friend's life at risk. dear mike, sweet mike, i hope -- i hope he can forgive, and if he doesn't, i wouldn't blame him for a second the worst part, sean, i know i lost the election. i couldn't admit it. [ laughter ] i don't know why i think it's dad stuff, sean and if i'm being honest with myself, until i deal with the dad stuff, i'm not gonna be the best version of myself [ laughter ] i mean be it's like melania says to me every day, 'be your best.' [ laughter ] now, you'd think any sane human being would desperately want to disassociate themselves from that and yet, when he was asked about trump's comment on sunday, wyoming senator john barrasso by no means considered one of killer gs -- i mean, he'd have to change his name to garrasso but still repeatedly, he refused to criticize trump for defending the mob's call to hang mike pence >> can your party tolerate a leader who defends murderous chants against his own vice-president >> well -- well, let me just say the republican party is incredibly united right now.
12:51 am
>> so you have no problem with the president saying "hang mike pence" is common sense. >> i was with mike pence in the senate chamber during january 6th, and what happened was they quickly got vice-president pence out of there. i didn't hear any of the chants. >> well, we just played the chants i'm ask you if you believe -- if you can tolerate the president saying "hang mike pence" is common sense >> it's not common sense there are issues of every election >> but you're not going to criticize president trump for those views. >> i don't agree with president trump on everything. >> seth: "look, george, the republican party is a big tent we don't agree on everything some of us are pro-war, some of us are anti-war. some of us are pro-vaccine some of us are anti-vaccine. some of us want to hang mike pence some of us don't hear when those people chant 'hang mike pence. [ laughter ] it's called inclusivity.
12:52 am
but that's the reality as much as we might like to write it off as a fringe movement, it's not it's the heart of the modern gop. virtually the entire institutional republican party from the so-called killer gs to john barrasso's of the world, have apparently decided that their ticket back to power is an alliance with trump, and a guy who looks like he was stung by a swarm of - >> killer bees [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause we'll be right back with bill murray, dan aykroyd and ernie hudson [ cheers and applause ♪ >> announcer: for more of seth's "closer looks," be sure to subscribe to "late night" on youtube.

[ cheers and applause you know, i was watching the film, i was telling you guys back stage, it was very emotional for me to watch the film
12:58 am
i can only imagine how emotional it was for you guys to get back together again >> just like -- felt like yesterday. it felt like we never left the packs off, and never got out of the jump suits didn't it feel like -- we feel like we were military called back to service. it felt like that. you know, we were called from the reserves >> seth: right, exactly. [ light laughter ] >> it was painful. it was painful is what it was. [ laughter ] it was physically and emotionally painful. you forget how heavy it is to carry a small refrigerator on your back for hours and hours a day. and then they say, "okay, guys, get down on the ground." >> yeah. >> "cut! all right, stand up. >> no. >> and then get down on the ground again that's what we did and i went, "[ bleep ], it's been 20 years. >> seth: yeah. >> we did a long time ago. and it's basically you're falling down on the ground, and having to get up with a small refrigerator on your back. [ laughter ] >> seth: it seems like the magic of movie making is they could have made a lighter refrigerator for your back. >> they had rubber ones, but they don't -- when they're on, it doesn't look like you're carrying the weight with the rubber ones. yeah so, because we're actors we're committed. [ laughter ] yeah, put the heavy one on
12:59 am
it will look more real sure >> a little better than the first -- the first - >> yeah, the first one weighed about 40, something, pounds or something. and we used to have it wear it, like, 14 hours a day >> seth: yeah. >> so, it sounds crazy but, like, if you're a mother and you have a baby, and you carry your baby, and you know how that feels after a few months imagine that your child is born at 40 pounds [ laughter ] >> seth: i still don't think you're going to get a lot of sympathy from mothers on that, bill, but -- [ laughter ] they're like, "i thought i had it bad until i heard about the ghost busters. [ laughter ] i'm -- so this was sort of the first big budget film that you had ever done, ernie did you have any sense of what you were getting into? >> no, well i did "space hunter" with peter strauss, mollie ringwald and ivan reitman >> never heard of it never heard of it. >> neither has anybody else. [ laughter ] but the year before, so but this was -- yeah, this was pretty amazing. pretty incredible, yeah. >> seth: you know, i was thinking back, when i think about growing up in the suburbs and wanting to live in new york city, it's never, like, the way woody allen made it look beautiful.
1:00 am
it was jokes by david letterman about how garbage a city it was. and then "ghostbusters," where it was a city full of ghosts [ laughter ] and yet when i watched it, i was like, "that's where i wanted to live." i mean, obviously, new york was a huge part of this film, of the first one. was it exciting for you guys, i guess you'd been gone from snl about five years, to come back to the city and make it. >> oh, sure, well, any time in new york city is exciting. i love - [ cheers and applause -- love new yorkers love the architecture. not sure that i would ever really live here again full time but we had a great time. it was wonderful because we would be shooting in civilian clothes. and nobody would be really looking, and then we'd get on the packs and uniforms running down the street, and people would kind of go, "are they exterminators? are they --" [ laughter ] and then the cadillac, we'd be going all over town in the cadillac and there was hardly -- that's just another emergency vehicle, i guess. you know, new yorkers were so blase about it they weren't really impressed at all with us at the time. >> it was a grand time to be in
1:01 am
new york we lived in new york a long, long time. and to be able to be a true new yorker, and to be able to drive and completely ignore stoplights everywhere you went. [ laughter ] and in that vehicle nobody -- we all looked so legit in the damn thing, you know? [ laughter ] and we had the refrigerator on our back, so people would just let you go police would kind of go, you know, "what the hell?" [ laughter ] >> seth: but i was surprised, cause, you know, i think the movie, you watch it now, and you assume that you were fully permitted and you had a key to the city but you were kind of fly by night. >> stealing things >> we had the key to the city, but they didn't know [ laughter ] >> seth: okay. right, they did not give you -- you took the key to the city >> it was auxiliary kind of thing, volunteer kind of stuff you know >> seth: you shot in 30 rock and, you know, obviously you guys worked here, dan and bill but did you -- >> we did not have a permit for the stuff we shot around here. >> seth: really? >> yeah, we just jumped out and we were like, "hi, it's dan and bill. we're shooting nobody. you know, just kept going.
1:02 am
>> yeah, you can see the scenes on fifth avenue when we're figuring out the mortgage, and how to buy the equipment and all that and we're just walking there and people -- it's real people we're walking there, and they were totally oblivious to the fact it was a film unit. so what you're seeing is real people just on the street in new york and we were stealing everything all over the place [ laughter ] yup. >> seth: much like in the film, you were sort of the last ghost buster to join the team, and coming into a situation where the other guys knew each other did you feel welcome when you came on the set, ernie >> yeah, i felt like the neighbor who goes to a friends house, and they're grabbing all the food and you're trying to be polite at the table. [ laughter ] so, yeah, i was welcome, but obviously, you know, i got through it harold would always say, "ernie, it's okay. [ laughter ] >> seth: you referenced harold ramis who sadly passed away, he was the other ghost buster i imagine it's impossible to go back to a film like this, that you wrote with him, dan, and not
1:03 am
think of him >> harold was a huge part of course of the first "ghostbusters" and the second one, because of his just incredible intelligence, his great sense of humor, his frame of reference he, you know, he was a terrific co-writer, and really a lead writer, and once i handed him that big thick script he just knew, "yeah, we can do this, this and this. make this work this way. we sat down with ivan, wrote it in the basement in martha's vineyard for about three months - a month it was, actually three weeks. >> that's enough he's passed away [ laughter ] >> and, yeah, he's the man, yeah [ laughter ] >> seth: it is a little overkill at this point. >> but he's still with us as you'll see >> you could have said that a long time ago. he would have liked that >> i did i loved that -- he would have loved to have heard that >> seth: bill, did you know they were working on a "ghostbusters" film and had plans for you to be in it? is that something they're like, "hey, you know harold and i are writing a film called "ghostbusters? >> well, i think i knew before harold knew, because danny sent me something and there was an allegation that
1:04 am
john belushi was going to be invited. but another guy whose passed away and we don't owe him anything. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> but the original script had about 27 -- original thing danny sent me had about 27 pages in it and it was the funniest thing i had ever read in my life, and i said, "let's go. and the stories get better from there.
