12:42 am
"a closer look." [ cheers and applause ♪ >> set last week, after he incited a crowd at his rally to chant "send her back" about minnesota congresswon ilhan omar, an american citizen and somali refugee, trump initially claimed to be unhappy about the chant he inspire which was obviously bs it's like if mr. met started pumping up the crowd at a game,n then when they chanted, "let's go mets," he said, "whoa, whoa, whoa guys. [ light laughter ] that is uncalled for." [ light laughter ] donald trump is not known for disavowing racism. in fact, he won't disavow anyone who supports or praises it, because he's a raging narcissistls he raigainst communism, but if mao came back from the dead and endorsed him, trump would start wearing tunics the next day.e [ laughter and appla we've been here before countless times. like the time he repeatedly refused to disavow the support of former kkk leader dav duke. and then later lied and said it was because he couldn't hear the question >> he says, "i'm just talking nd
12:43 am
about david dukehe ku klux klan here. and you said "honestly, i don't know david duke. >> let me tell you okay so let me tell you i i'm sitting in a hou florida with a very bad earpiece that they gave me, and you could hardly hear what he was saying >> seth: even when he lies, he sounds le an addled grandpa facetiming with his grandkids from a nursing home. i'm here in this house in florida. [ laughter ] i can't hardly hear what you'r saying my ear trumpet is on the fritz [ laughter and applause and then there was trump's reaction to charlottesville when he refused to condemn neo nazis and ite supremacists two days later, trump's advisors again had to wrangle him to issue a statement disavowing the white supremacistsand it was against trump's wishes aides tried to convince the present he needed to clarify his remarks, but trump appeared to resist, repeatedly saying, "i don't know about this, this doesn't feel right to me." and then after he gave the speech, trump told his aides, "that was the biggest [ bleep ] mistake i've made. that's the worst speech i've ever given." [ light laughter ] you thinthat's the worst speech you've ever given dude, you've given speeches that
12:44 am
technically don't even qualify as human speech. >> there's another crucialca election in north lina's 9th -- you know, right? 10,000 known or suspested gang members. [ laughter ] god bless the united shasheser [ laug >> seth: trump h repeatedly refused to disavow racism, because he's a racist. and the core of his world viewti is that cinship for nonwhite people is conditional. if you don't praise him, you're not a legitimate citizen, which is why he can't stop mounting urracist attacks on the fo democratic congresswomen known as the squad, repeating those sunday and again todayeets on >> the president tweeting, "i don't believe the four congresswomen are capable of loving our country they should apologize to america and israel for the horrible, hateful, things they have said they are destroying the democratic party, but are weak and insecure people who can never destroy our great nation." >> "the squad is a very racist group troublemakers who are
12:45 am
young, inexperienced, and not very smart." >> seth: alright, first of all, you're calling them troublemakers?so are you trying td like a "scooby doo" villain [ laughter ] i mean, it would make sense, since your face looks like a halloween mask [ light laughter ] his presidency should end with the gang tying him up in an abandoned amusement park [ light laughter ] second, it never sps being amazing to me how much he projects on to other people. he called them weak, insecure,in racist, perienced, and not very smart what's next? "they can't even pronounce basic words. that's why they hate the - >> united shashes. [ laughter ] >> seth: but while trump - [ cheers and appuse while trump was waging his racist attacks last week, we found out about yet another potential crime that almost certainly would have landed trump in a courtroom if he were not the president. first, let's just remember that right now one big reason trump hasn't been charged with a crime is the fact that justicede rtment guidelines say a sitting president cannot be indicted, and that's not explicitly written in the constitution oanything it started with a memo that's
12:46 am
more than 40-years-old >> we have that policy thanks to a man named robert dixon, who was the head of the department of justice's office of legal counsel way back in 1973, wheney thuthored a memo that says a president cannot be indicted while sitting in office. >> seth: that's right. of a memo written in 13.because people ignore memos every day. we sent out 15 memos, but devon's still microwaving fish in the break room. [ laughter ] those guidelines are part of whl robert m didn't charge trump with obstruction of justice. in fact, mueller will testify on wednesday in congress where he will surely be aed point blank by democrats if trump would have been indicted had it not been d for those guidelines, anday in the oval office trump pretended like he wouldn't be paying that much attention to the hearings >> no, i'm not going to be watching probably. maybe i'll see a little bit of it i'm not going to be watching mueller, because you can't take all those bites out of the apple. he still ruled no collusion, no obstruction, and this thing
12:47 am
should have ended a long time ago. this has been going on for 2 1/2 years. >> seth: no, i agree with you that this thing that's been going on for 2 1/2 years should have eed a long time ago also, no one believes you when you say you'reot going to be watching all you do is watch tv if the mueller hearings weren't on, you'd be live tweeting "days of our lives." "jessica's evil twin is back from the dead. not nice." [ laughter ] and it's not just mueller. last week we also found out that the justice department guidelines might be why trump e sn't charged with a crim the hush money schemes he orchestrated during the 2016 campaign to cover up affairs, which ultimately n resulted ihis personal fixer, oi michael cohen, to jail last week, we found out that investigators said that trump was the one who was directly involved when a court unsealed documents detailing trump's communication with cohen to coordinate the illegal hush payments >> breaking newsle new documents reed last hour prompting a very big and very uncomfortable question for thee. white ho did the president commit a crime?
12:48 am
today, a judge unsealed search warrant materials in connectione toichael cohen case and the effort to buy the silence of women who say they had affairs with the president the documents mentioned the e. president by n >> according to the documents, then candidate dald trump, his former attorney, and former aide, hope hicks, may have discussed ways to stop adult film star stormy diels from going public about an alleged affair with trump. according to an fbi special agent who wrote in the affidavit, aeries of phone calls took place in october he 2016 just befolection. >> a lead fbi investigating agent writes in the documents,th "based otiming of these calls and the content of the text messages and emails, i e beli least some of these communications concern the need to prevent clifford, a reference to stormy daniels, from going public, particarly in the wake of the 'access hollywood' story. >> seth: the president was allegedly involved in the cover-up of a crime in the last weeks of the presidential election, and it wasn't evenn like ie top ten news stories last week. this is how he wears us down it's like being in a zombie
12:49 am
movie. anybody can outrun one zome. but when your city is crawling with zombies you're like, [ bleep ] it, just eat i don't want to not zombi i'll be a zombie, too. [ cheers and applause we'll all be zombies this is thcore of trumpism he marries racism with corrupt plutocracy it's not just his cabinet that's been riddled with scandal. d he'sed out tax cuts to the wealthy and corporations, slashed environmental regulations, and gutted consumer protections. and of course, he's beenal person profiting off the presidency, himself. >> "washington post" reports that lobbyists representing the saudi government paid for an estimated 500 rooms at president trump's d.c. hotel in the months after his election the total bill for those trips, more than $270,000 >> t-mobile executives booked doze of nights at the trump hotel last year once their merger needed trump administration approval. >> nbc news has obtained documents showing that trump international hotel billed t secret service $215,000 for the period between september 2016 and february 2018.
12:50 am
>> president trump's golf habit has cost the american people some $102 million and counting >> seth: so not only has the presidency allowed trump to commit indictable offenses with impunity, it's also allowed himo to perlly profit off the presidency i wouldn't be surprised if he started selling off pieces of the oval office on craigslist. "good desk, made of wood, has light ketchup stains." [ laughter ] so trump's base gets to revel ic his open rm while he plunders the government, and doles out favors and tax cuts to his rich buddies h who knows ifll ever be held accountable for his crimes, but when it comes to the trump presidency, one thing is clear -- >> this thing should have ended a long time ago. >> seth: this has been "a closer [ cheers and applause ♪ac we'll be right bwith senator cory booker, everybody [ cheers and applause ♪ >> announcer: for more of seth's "closer looks" be sure to subscribe to "late night" on youtube. ♪ parents have a wayagining the worst...

1:02 am
"dude, that's a felony, man. [ laughter ] and, you know, this -- donaldrump is a guy who you understand he hurts you, and my testosterone sometimes makes me want to feel like punchingim, which would be bad for this haderly out of shape man the is if i did that [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause physically -- physically weak specimen a physically weak specimen t but you see what i'malking there? even -- that's his tactics and you don't beat a bully like him fighting him on his tactics, on his terms, using his turf he's the body shamer he's the guy that show-- tries to drag people in the gutter and i -- and this is a moral moment in america. and to me, what we need from our next leader especially after the time of moral vandalism thate we right now, is we need a leader that's not going to call us to the worst of who we are but call us the best of who we are. and we need to be as a party [ cheers and applause
1:03 am
in this moral moment, we need not to talk about necessarily what we're against, but what we're for, and the best way of looking at this is just our history. the gardens of our democracy have never been free of the ry weeds of bigothatred, a demagoguery. every generation has had them. i literally had one of -- an elder friend of mine text saying, listening to donald trump's rally last week, he was talking -- the words he was using minded him of a george wallace rally that he watched in black and white and now it's in living color buorhow did we beat them bef first of all, don't mistake strength for -- to be strong, you need to be mean. we beat bull connor, for example, in birmingham not by bringing bigger dogs and bigger firehoses and matching his demagoguery with more. but these were incredible artists of activism that cled to the moral imagination of a country, that called us to a greater -- a revival of that civic race tt pulled black folks and white folks and more folks together that relegated that demagogue to the ash heap
1:04 am
of history we will not beat donald trump by trying to be more like him but by showing that we are not like him. we are not weak morally. we are not weak mentally we're a strong nation, and we're a nation that unites [ cheers and applause >> seth: it does sm like - obviously, it's going to be a difficult undertaking for back the white houseis to take it might even be more statistically difficult for the democratic party to take back so let's say you're in the white house, but mitch mcconnell is still running the senate where does -- where can you find any optimism to think that you can get something done as long as mitch mcconnell, who has been incredly effective no matter what you think about him, effective in sort of having this republican platform that has been a wall that'seen impossible to break through. >> so that's the distinction of my recor look, i was the mayor of new jersey's largest city in the middle of a recession where people told me what we couldn'tf do and now from tranming our school system, to the biggest period economic development in 60 years, we got things done people said couldn't be donee,
1:05 am
i got to the senatne of the things that drove me there was the fact that we have one of the most shameful criminal justicet systems on the planeere we say we're the land of the free but we incarcerate 25% of the globe's incarcerated people. d i went there to do something about it and i remember people in my own party telling me you're never going to get legislation like ug this passed throthe united states senate, especially freeing people from prison at a time in the aftermath of willie horton where everybody in goto be afraid to do that. well, with mitch mcconnell there, i led from the democratic side a bill that not only got passed but right now, last week, we saw thousands of people being released, the overwhelming majority of them beingam african-icans. >> seth: this is the first step - >> the first step act. and, so, i do not resign myself ever to people saying things can't get done and why i fight so hard in this election, i tell people, i know that the number one thing people want in my party is just to beat donald trump and i'm like," that is a floor, it is not the ceiling. we have to have bigger aspirations.
1:06 am
if we make this election all about him, that's a small man, one officeot that's nhat i want this election to just be about. we will beat him i will beat him. but we've got to make this more of a movement election to create new american majorities. and i'm not talking about de cratic majorities. but the fact of the matter is we actually agree on more than we disagree the lines that divide us, as they're noig as the ties that bind us and so, i think our generation moral moment has to begin not to resign ourselves to fractured nm broken govert but aspire to do what our ancestors did. we just came off a weekend where they created the new amerin majority to defy the limits of human potential and put a person on the moon. it's time for our generation to begin to reject divisive tribalistic politics and inspire people so that we in our generation can defy gravity as well and do the things that other people think are impossible [ cheers and applause >> seth: all right well thanks for making the time. i know it's got to be busy out there. >> thankou >> seth: best of luck in the next round of debates.
