[ cheers and applause ]
12:50 am
now, today, republicans voted on a motion to start debate about repealing obamacare, which could make one of the greatest challenges this country faces, the opioid crisis, more difficult to deal with. it's an epidemic that affects millions of americans, regardless of race, religion or socioeconomic status. and it's an issue that donald trump promises voters he would focus on when he became president. we decided to take a break from the breaking news to see how that's going. it's time for the "check-in." [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: while campaigning in new hampshire, one of the hardest hit states by prescription pain killer abuse, then candidate trump promised he would devote additional resources to fighting opioid addiction. but when asked what his plan was for combating the issue, he couldn't help but make it all about himself. >> what is your view on how we get more treatment facilities in this state, and other states? >> well, you do have to have that and -- you know it's amazing, i've gotten, as you know, i'm up here a lot. in fact, from here i go and make a speech at a certain place and we're going to have a lot of fun, and i'm in new hampshire so much. i'm doing great in new hampshire.
12:51 am
i'm leading in the polls by a lot, and we're having a lot of fun here and i've gotten to know the people. i have a lot of friends. [ laughter ] >> seth: you know, for a guy who doesn't seem very athletic, he sure turns into neo when he doesn't like a question. [ light laughter ] so just to clarify, his response to the opioid crisis is, "i have friends and we have a lot of fun." [ light laughter ] that's the response a teenager would give if his parents caught him using opioids. "what's happening to you, kevin?" "i have friends and we have a lot of fun!" [ light laughter ] now, if you have to make a point to tell people you have so many friends, it's probably safe to assume you don't have that many. but actually trump does have one. >> we're fortunate to have governor chris christie with us, a friend of mine, a great friend of mine. a very, very early endorser. in fact, an immediate endorser once he got out of the race. [ light laughter ] he liked himself more than he liked me. but other than that. >> still do, sir. but that's all right. [ laughter ] >> seth: yes, sir. yes, sir, i am your friend, sir.
12:52 am
[ light laughter ] sir, i will see you at the bro down, sir. new jersey governor chris christie was right by trump's side there, because the president was hosting a listening session on opioid abuse. and he appointed christie to lead a bipartisan opioid commission to try to come up with solutions to curb prescription pain killer abuse, and develop better plans for treatment. and chris christie is the perfect choice to lead a bipartisan commission, because if there's one issue of bipartisan agreement right now, it's that everyone, regardless of party, hates chris christie. [ applause ] >> this is the governor who has the lowest approval rating, not just of any governor in recent memory here in the state, but across the country. hovering at just 15%. >> seth: 15%. chris christie is as popular with voters as salad is with chris christie. [ light laughter ] so how is he doing leading the commission? >> president donald trump's commission aimed at fighting opioid abuse and devising a strategy to provide treatment to those addicted, will miss for the second time its deadline to file an interim report to the president.
12:53 am
>> seth: even worse, experts point out that the administration's current priorities, which include an emphasis on enforcement over treatment, are not going to help turn the epidemic around. and the reason law enforcement can't solve the problem alone, is because far too often, opioid addiction begins legally. with doctors prescribing strong painkillers, and pharmaceutical companies endorsing the drugs, because they stand to benefit from sales of them. and this is important, because when mentioning drug abuse, trump almost always finds a way to blame it on the border, and illegal drugs coming from mexico. and that is a very real problem. but in this case, the pills are coming from inside the house. [ light laughter ] for example, west virginia has one of the highest overdose rates in the country, and this might help explain why. >> this is kermit, west virginia. population just under 400. and this was the save-rite pharmacy in kermit. where at least 9 million opioid painkillers were shipped in just two years. 9 million. that's the equivalent of over 22,000 pills for every person in
12:54 am
town. >> seth: 22,000 pills for each person in town. can you imagine the size of their pill-a-day organizers? [ laughter ] and when the supply to legal pharmaceuticals is cut off. people who are now addicted turn to illegal drugs like heroin, which is why we have a responsibility to value treatment over law enforcement. trump should look at it this way, he's never done heroin, but if they outlawed kfc, he might. [ light laughter ] "this is the last of the chicken, sir." "oh, my god, tie me off!" [ light laughter ] and just yesterday trump defended his health care bill and what it would do to address the opioid crisis specifically. >> it devotes substantial resources to fight the opioid -- and this is a tremendous problem, the opioid epidemic. $45 billion is being put in. so that the people of many states like new hampshire, ohio, and so many others that have such a big problem, can be helped and helped greatly.
12:55 am
>> seth: $45 billion sounds like a lot of money, but don't be fooled. because according to reports that number is drastically short of what would be needed to make up for the legislations deep cuts to medicaid, which has provided treatment for hundreds of thousands of people. so the money he's giving is less than the money he's taking away. basically, trump is saying, "we're going to give you bigger portions, but we're also going to burn down the restaurant." [ light laughter ] and it's not just the health care plan, trump's budget proposal would slash funding for drug treatment services and according to new hampshire senators jeanne shaheen and maggie hassan. trump's opioid commission has also delayed the implementation of existing recommendations from health experts that could save lives now if implemented. we even reached out to new hampshire senator shaheen's office to see if at the very least, any additional money has been given to the state as was promised. as of this taping, we were told that new hampshire has not received any additional funding from the trump administration to tackle the opioid epidemic. so what's trump been so busy doing instead? ♪ [ applause ] [ honking ]
12:56 am
>> look at that. >> oh! >> look at that. ♪ [ laughter ] >> where's the fire? ♪ >> seth: man, what is this? the make-a-wish presidency? [ laughter ] "i want to be a fireman, a cowboy, a golf man, and a sword." [ laughter ] and i'm sorry, are you sick? "i'm sick of working." [ light laughter ] at this point, trump's been in more fire trucks than a dalmatian. [ light laughter ] and some advocates say that trump is passing up opportunities to crack down on the pharmaceutical industry, which reports said fuelled the prescription opioid epidemic. perhaps making matters worse, trump chose dr. scott gottlieb, the former federal official with financial ties to pharmaceutical companies to run the food and drug administration, which approved opioids, among other things. according to reports, gottlieb has funded several health care start-ups and has received millions of dollars for his work with large pharmaceutical companies. he now has to recuse himself for at least one year, for any fda
12:57 am
decisions involving his former clients, which seems to be the m.o. of this administration. gottlieb recusing himself from some fda decisions, jeff sessions recusing himself from the russian investigation, and melania recusing herself from any and all physical contact. ♪ [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: and -- and to be fair to trump, this didn't happen on his watch. but he is now president of a country that consumes about 80% of the global opioid supply, and 99% of the world's hydrocodone, a powerful painkiller. continuing to do nothing is both dangerous and irresponsible. this is a crisis that affects our families and our friends, and that should matter to trump, because as we all know -- >> i have a lot of friends. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "the check-in." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with kelly ripa, everybody!

[ laughter ] if they did it, it was 20 seconds of silence and then -- and then some guy would be like "dude, hang up." [ laughter ] my mom was raised irish catholic. she was one of ten, and then she converted to islam. and then my parents met and they said, "it's on."
