tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC January 28, 2022 12:37am-1:37am PST
[ cheers and applause ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers. tonight -- kenan thompson star of "the worst person in the world," actress renate reinsve actor and producer tom riley featuring the 8g band with elena bonomo ♪ [ cheers and applause and now, seth meyers >> seth: good evening. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night. we hope you're all doing well tonight. let's get to the news. president biden said today that he is planning to name his nominee to replace retiring supreme court justice stephen breyer by the end of next month
and then day or two after that, he'll nickname the nominee hey, super judge judge-a-rino i'll get one, don't worry. [ laughter ] after white house press secretary jen psaki said yesterday that president biden will stand by his commitment to appoint a black woman to the supreme court, a fox news panel criticized the administration's selection process. i'll take a wild guess and say they have exactly two problems with a black woman [ laughter ] the pharmaceutical company moderna announced yesterday that it has begun testing its omicron-specific coronavirus vaccine. feels like that might be outdated by the time it's ready. that's like hearing that apple is working on an iphone 7. [ laughter ] according to the latest numbers, the u.s. economy last quarter grew by 6.9% "my pleasure," said spider-man [ laughter ] according to a new report, a witness told federal prosecutors
that he was present when republican congressman matt gaetz was told he had sex with a minor, and he said you could have heard a pin drop at that homecoming dance. [ laughter ] and almost in here [ laughter ] in honor of the park's 30th anniversary and women's history month in march, disneyland paris announced yesterday that minnie mouse will wear a dark blue and black polka-dotted pantsuit designed by stella mccartney unfortunately, that still won't make up for the fact that you brought your wife to paris and then took her to disneyland. [ laughter ] "hey, did you see the pantsuit, eh?" [ laughter ] a representative of the anti-drug group d.a.r.e. criticized the hbo show "euphoria" in a new interview and said it glorifies narcotics use among high school students but realistically, how many teens can afford hbo and narcotics?
[ laughter ] mcdonald's is set to begin selling a new item consisting of a chicken sandwich, big mac and filet-o-fish all in one bun, called "land, air, and sea," as opposed to its original name, "bathroom, hospital, cemetery. [ laughter and applause went a different way and finally, the navy announced yesterday that it has discharged 45 sailors for refusing to get the coronavirus vaccine. wow, i didn't realize the virus could be transmitted through seamen [ laughter ] discharged discharged seamen. [ laughter ] and that was -- the show for the whole night? [ laughter ] that was the monologue we have a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause he is the longest-running cast member on "snl," 19 years and counting
now he's got his own show on nbc. our friend kenan thompson will be here tonight. [ cheers and applause he is a very talented actor in the new netflix series, "the woman in the house across the street from the girl in the window." tom riley will be my guest [ cheers and applause and she won best actress at the cannes film festival for her amazing movie "the worst person in the world," which i absolutely love. renate reinsve will also be joining me [ cheers and applause but before we get to all that tonight, president biden and senate democrats say they'll move quickly to appoint and confirm a successor to retiring supreme court justice stephen breyer, which they absolutely must, because if republicans had their way, they'd almost certainly keep the seat vacant until they could fill it themselves for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause >> seth: well, guys, it's not often i get to report good news on this show, but things are finally looking up for democrats because they'll have a chance to choose a new supreme court
justice. >> after 27 years on the supreme court, today we learned that justice stephen breyer, who is 83 years old, is retiring justice breyer is one of the three remaining liberal justices in the 6-3 court >> i was proud and grateful to be there at the start of this distinguished career on the supreme court. and i'm very proud to be here today on his announcement of his retirement >> the overall sort of ideological split on the court will not change one iota it is, generally speaking, a 6-3 conservative-majority court. >> seth: that's right, everyone. liberals get to maintain a 3-6 minority whoo round of tap waters for everyone who wants tap? we got tap from the sink wally, break out an appropriate number of balloons okay [ laughter ] you know what, you know what, i think we can go ahead and drop a single confettum
[ laughter ] try to keep an eye on it [ cheers and applause we also called up d.j. khaled and asked if we could borrow his celebratory air horn and he asked what for, and i explained the good news about maintaining a 3-6 minority on the court. and then he told me that i played myself. and i said, "can i have the air horn or not? and he said, "you can have a horn appropriate to the news." so this is what we got [ horn blows ] free horn! [ laughter ] who played whose self now? that being said, this will still be a historic appointment, because today biden reaffirmed his commitment to putting the first black woman on the court, which is obviously a momentous and long-overdue step. but otherwise biden has been pretty tight-lipped about his choice yesterday, for example, he demurred when asked about it by reporters at a white house event and jokingly asked someone on a panel with him if they wanted to
join the supreme court >> every justice has the right and opportunity to decide what he or she is going to do and announce it on their own there has been no announcement from justice breyer. let him make whatever statement he's going to make, and i'll be happy to talk about it later >> i want to start by asking tom, tom linebarger to offer your thoughts, please, sir >> yeah, thank you, mr. president. it's an honor to be here >> want to go to the supreme court, tom [ laughter ] >> i'm just going to demur on that one >> seth: hey, man, don't joke around like that because that's absolutely how trump picked kavanaugh "we need a supreme court justice? hey, you -- you with the beer bong, you wanna be on the supreme court? "who, me or my buddy squee? and i'm just joking. he wasn't chosen randomly. trump was given a list by the federalist society, which is a shadowy group of conservatives who secretly control the levers of power in this country when republicans are in office. you know what, wally, get rid of that one balloon
[ air squealing [ laughter ] did you strangle it? and then today biden appeared at the white house alongside breyer to officially announce breyer's retirement, but made clear to reporters he would not take questions. >> i'm not going to take any questions, because i think it's inappropriate to take questions with the justice here. he is still sitting on the bench. but you'll have plenty of opportunities to get me later today and for the rest of the week next week, too so thank you very much thank you. [ reporters clamoring >> seth: and thank goodness this time president biden made sure to walk away from the microphone, because we all know what happens when he doesn't >> no, it's a great asset. more inflation what a stupid son of a bitch [ laughter ]
>> seth: here -- here, though, here -- here's my question about that did he really think no one would hear him i mean, even if the mic wasn't there, you're still in a roomful of people, you're surrounded by reporters. you're on camera even if biden just mouthed the words, i'm pretty sure we could have read his lips like, watch my mouth [ laughter ] i think you can tell what i just said even without the words, his expression says, "you stupid son of a bitch." forget the hot mic biden's got a hot face so, before's today official announcement, biden and his aides were walking on eggshells and trying to be respectful of breyer, because in our dumb system, there was nothing stopping breyer from just changing his mind and sticking around and we all just have to nod and pretend that having a forever job this important isn't totally [ bleep ] crazy. i mean, what about an employee review every decade? is that too much to ask? whoever came up with the idea of lifetime appointments must have been a - >> stupid son of a bitch >> seth: but regardless of biden playing coy, he and senate democrats have made clear that they plan to move fast to
confirm breyer's successor senate majority leader chuck schumer said the senate would move with, quote, "all deliberate speed." although, forgive me if i don't trust senate democrats to move quickly. no one who wears their glasses like this is known for their urgency. in ophthalmology, they call that glasses position the "hold your horses." [ laughter ] schumer looks like he's sampling every flavor at a baskin-robbins before ordering. "and now let me try a little of the rocky road this is getting harder, not easier." [ laughter ] "i hope the people behind me haven't been waiting too long. oh, dear!" [ laughter ] still, democrats seem aware of the urgency and the need to move quickly because republicans have repeatedly implied, or said outright, that if they had their way, they would hold the seat hostage and keep it empty until a republican can fill it that's their position now, and was there position in 2016 when republicans, including ted cruz and donald trump, infamously
said they would never confirm a democratic nominee, no matter what year it was >> you've said the president shouldn't nominate anyone in the rest of his term to replace justice scalia >> i think it's up to mitch mcconnell and everybody else to stop it. it's called delay, delay, delay. >> seth: sounds like the one guy at a soccer match who doesn't quite know how to do the chant ole, ole, ole, o-- >> delay, delay. >> seth: that was in 2016. but it won't surprise to you learn that nothing has changed mitch mcconnell has already said he likely wouldn't confirm a biden nominee in 2024 if republicans win back the senate, and left the door open to stonewalling a nominee in 2023, as well, saying "cross those brings when i get there. we're focusing on '22. i don't rule anything in or out about how to handle nominations if i'm in the majority position." you can't even bring yourself to say that you'd consider a president's supreme court pick in a non-election year so what's your position, then? only republicans are allowed to govern oh, that is their position but then that wouldn't be a
democracy, right well, what would it be oh well, that's not good. [ laughter ] if mcconnell got his way, biden's only job would be grilling hot dogs, eating ice cream, and giving people finger guns at the state of the union. and that right there -- that right there is the difference between being vice president and being president. vice president is like riding shotgun on a road trip, just messing with the radio, winking at the girls in other cars, doing that hand thing with the wind [ laughter ] but now that he is the one driving, he's all, "everybody shut up! i'm trying to concentrate! can i get over there our exit's coming up!" several gop senators went even further than mcconnell, telling cnn they would oppose any biden nominee no matter what year it is iowa senator chuck grassley, the ranking member on the judiciary committee, even went so far as to make up another totally non-existent rule, telling cnn, "you know what the rule is on that -- you go back to 1886, and ever since then when the senate 's been of one party and the
president's been of another party, you didn't confirm. first of all, don't tell us to go back to 1886 just because you go back to 1886. [ laughter ] i'm not saying grassley is old, but his first campaign was for president of pangaea [ laughter ] "only i can keep us together!" [ laughter ] second, there's no such rule as cnn noted, the then democratic majority senate voted to confirm president ronald reagan's nomination of anthony kennedy in 1988, and president george h.w. bush's nomination of david souter in 1990, and clarence thomas in 1991 -- all while grassley was in the senate. do you think we can't just look this stuff up? or have you just not heard about google and think we have to go to the library to find it? "have fun going through microfiche, you losers!" and that's not a joke about chuck grassley being too old to know about google. that's a joke about grassley being bad at technology. like the time he tweeted out of nowhere with no additional context, "i assumed deer dead because it was night and no carcass. [ laughter ]
i'm so relieved we found that tweet. one of our interns spent all day looking through the stacks at the twitter library in long island city. they found that and the deer carcass. [ laughter ] so clearly these guys are just making [ bleep ] up as they go, the same way your mom does when she has too much gin during a game of monopoly "mom, you can't put a hotel on a railroad." "well, where are the people supposed to stay you know, while they wait for their train. i'll bet there's a nice bar in that little hotel. "you have a problem, mother. "well, then i better call dr. hendrix. [ laughter ] there is no reason to ever take seriously anything these guys say ever again they blocked president obama's supreme court nominee eight months before an election, and then rushed to confirm amy coney barrett eight days before an election and now they're saying, even when it's not an election year, they won't confirm a democratic nominee. next, mcconnell is going to claim the constitution says the senate can't confirm a nominee when a democrat is president, in a month ending in "y," when it's alternate-side parking, before or after labor day, in a year
when tom brady isn't in the super bowl this is why breyer had to retire now, so democrats could replace him before republicans potentially win back the senate in november. and to help nudge breyer towards retirement, there's been a sustained pressure campaign from progressives >> it is clear that the court's future is really his main reason for leaving after almost three decades on the court he has spoken extensively, particularly over the past year, he even wrote a book released in september. and in those speeches, in his book, he expressed concern that the public views the court as political. and he talks about how that perception could really erode faith in the court he understands this relentless over the past year progressive pressure on him to step down in fact, the progressive group demand justice just last spring, they paraded a mobile billboard past the supreme court with the simple words "breyer retire," trying to get their message out there. >> seth: i have to say, i enjoy the idea of paying for a mobile billboard that targets one guy
it's like seeing an ad on the side of a bus that says, "is your name steve? did you borrow my coat last week and forget to return it? yeah, this is dave call me at 1-800-1-give me my coat back, [ bleep ] also, can we please dispense with this ridiculous fiction that the court somehow isn't political? that's all it is they want all of us to act like it's the jedi council soberly deliberating over what's best for the galaxy, when it's really just a group of republicans and democrats, nominated by a group of republicans and democrats, who do the things republicans and democrats want them to do. pretending the court isn't political is like pretending reality show casts are assembled for the purposes of having drama-free interactions. "i don't know where we went wrong with this season of "real housewives," but some of these ladies do not get along. [ laughter ] this is an opportunity for biden and democrats to make a historic impact on the court by confirming the first black woman in u.s. history, a move that is both momentous and long overdue. but it says a lot about our current politics that if breyer hadn't retired now, there's a
good chance republicans would have held the seat hostage and never let biden nominate anyone, which if you ask me, is pretty - >> stupid. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look."
