tv   Late Night With Seth Meyers  NBC  July 21, 2018 12:37am-1:38am PDT

12:37 am
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight, colin quinn, u.s. senator from wisconsin, tammy baldwin, cooking with chef missy robbins, featuring the 8g band with fred armisen. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everyone doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] fantastic to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. president trump held a campaign rally last night in minnesota. and long story short, we are now in a trade war with minnesota.
12:38 am
[ laughter ] first lady melania trump made a surprise trip to the u.s./mexico border today and visited a facility holding migrant children. "i can't imagine what terrible things you've been through," said one of the kids to melania. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] this is a true thing. [ light laughter ] first lady melania trump was wearing a jacket today with the words, "i really don't care. do u?" written on the back when she bordered the plane to go visit the border. you know, a lot of people are giving her a hard time about it. but i think it's nice that she had a jacket made to display her wedding vows. [ laughter and applause ] "you take this man to be your
12:39 am
lawfully wedded husband?" "i don't care, do you?" "no." [ light laughter ] after melania trump was spotted wearing the jacket, her spokesperson said, quote, "it's a jacket. there was no hidden message." hidden? it was literally spelled out. [ laughter ] that's like saying, "if you play an aerosmith song forwards, it contains hidden messages about love in an elevator." [ light laughter ] president trump tweeted today, quote, "democrats want open borders where everyone can come into our country and stay. this is nancy pelosi's dream." which is completely untrue because you can't have a dream if you never close your eyes. [ laughter and applause ] the "l.a. times" has published a profile on a 29 pound stray cat named chubs. [ audience aws ] to those mean kids on the subway
12:40 am
today, no, i'm not the world's biggest pussy. [ laughter and applause ] hundreds of people gathered at la guardia airport last night to welcome migrant children who have been separated from their parents at the border. and if you don't think that's a big deal, you've never asked someone to pick you up at la guardia. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] and, finally -- finally, president trump has been talking all week about his idea to create a sixth branch of the military called the space force. [ light laughter ] and a lot of the stuff he's been saying has been super weird. so one of our editors made this video. again, these are trump's actual words that he has spoken about the space force. enjoy. >> space, you will go out there. and you will take that frontier,
12:41 am
which is largely unknown, by man or woman, gleaming new spaceships blazing through the sky and soaring into the heavens. beyond the earth and into those forbidden skies. that's where it's at, space. there is no place like space. [ light laughter ] space force. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: space force. we got a great show for you tonight. he is currently out on his "one and every crowd" stand-up comedy tour, the one, the only colin quinn is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] she is a u.s. senator from the great state of wisconsin, tammy baldwin is joining us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] and she's a james beard award-winning chef and owner of "lilia" in brooklyn. here to cook up some delicious meatballs for us, chef missy robbins is here tonight. so -- [ cheers and applause ] wonderful night to be here. before we get to that,
12:42 am
president trump retreated to the safe space of a campaign rally last night as we learn more about the aftermath of his family separation policy. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: republicans love to rail against the so-called "elites," despite the fact that their party controls all three branches of government. or the fact they are the party of the money class. or the fact that they elected a wealthy golf course owning new york real estate magnet turned tv celebrity as president. it's probably their most oft-repeated talking point. liberals drink lattes and drive priuses and republicans are hard-working, blue-collar, getter-doners. and yet, at a rally in minnesota yesterday, trump completely gave away the game when he bared his insecurities for all to see by complaining about the fact that no one ever calls him "elite." >> a little thing i was talking about today. [ applause ] did you ever notice they always call the other side, and they do this sometime, the elite, the elite. why are they elite?
12:43 am
i have a much better apartment than they do. [ cheers and applause ] i'm smarter than they are. i'm richer than they are. [ cheers ] i became president and they didn't. [ light laughter ] >> seth: well, put it like this, lebron james is an elite athlete. because he's the best at what he does. you're more of a j.r. smith. because you have no idea what's going on. and you think you are winning when you're not. [ laughter and applause ] trump has been dealing with national revulsion over his abhorrent policy of tearing children away from their parents at the border. so he's desperate to focus on other things, like he's comically dumb idea to create a space force. last night, he claimed weirdly that was he reopening nasa. and his crowd started a new chant. >> i think you saw the other day, we are reopening nasa. we are going to be -- going to space.
12:44 am
[ cheers ] >> space force. space force. space force. space force. >> space force. >> space force. space force. >> space force. [ laughter ] >> seth: "going to space." [ light laughter ] although, i guess it's a positive sign that a crowd of trump supporters are chanting for a giant science project. though, i have some bad news for you. you know what they call people smart enough to work at nasa? elite. [ laughter ] also, space force sounds like what your grandma thinks "star wars" is called. [ light laughter ] "oh, you're going to picture show? are you going to see "space force" or that new revengers movie?" trump is desperate for a win so he's usually just making one up. as we told you yesterday, trump started repeating a new line that's he's cut more regulations than any president including a fictional president who served 16 years. now, we think he's referring to fdr who was elected to a fourth
12:45 am
term but only served 12 years. but apparently, no one has corrected him. because he keeps repeating this line as he did last night for the third time this week. >> we've cut more regulations than any administration, whether it's four years, eight years, or 16 years in one case. but we've cut out massive numbers of regulations, more regulations than any president in the history of our country. and that's four years, eight years, or in one case 16 years. we've cut more regulations than any president in the history of our country, whether it's four years, eight years, or in one year -- in one case 16 years. [ laughter ] >> seth: how has no one corrected him yet? that's the scary thing about trump. even when he says something clearly wrong, there is no one around who will tell him so. john kelly will just stare at the ground. [ light laughter ] mike pence will insist he's right. and stephen miller tries to tell him. but he doesn't speak in a human tongue. [ screeching ] [ applause ]
12:46 am
sorry, what was that, steven? [ screeching] [ light laughter ] and in the same way that he now insists the fictional president served for 16 years, trump has also spent weeks insisting that he could not undo his own policy of separating families at the border. only to reverse himself yesterday and sign an executive order undoing the policy. all week, we've heard a variety of insane conspiracy theories from republicans and fox news to justify trump's policy. from allegation that children are actors to claims that drug cartels are posing as families to sneak across the border. and yesterday, republican congressman roger marshall repeated those claims, which he said came from trump's department of homeland security. >> the number of families that are posing as families has quadrupled trying to cross our borders. so you're having people that are doing human trafficking, terrorists and cartel members. >> where is your evidence for that? where is an evidence of a terrorist using a child to cross the border? i would like to see some evidence of that. >> right.
12:47 am
so i think what i would encourage you to do is go look at the kids that are under the age of five-years-old that are being in custody right now and see how many of them were separated from true parents as opposed to from cartel members or from traffickers. so i think you need to do some more investigative reporting. >> you keep using the word "posing." you keep implying that these people are making up stories that five-year-olds have been coached. and they've been taken by traffickers. what i'm asking you is to present evidence that that is happening in any systemic way? >> certainly that was my questions for the hs yesterday. and they've reassured me what i just told you is the truth. >> seth: oh, well, if the trump administration told you it's true, then it must be. [ light laughter ] did they also tell you fdr was president for 16 years? [ laughter ] [ applause ] so now trump is finally reversed himself. but here's the thing. the more we find out about this executive order, the more problematic it is. for one thing, the executive order does not address the question of what happens to the more than 2,000 children who are already separated by the trump administration?
12:48 am
do they have any plan whatsoever to reunite those families? well, yesterday, trump administration officials basically said those parents are on their own. >> officials from the department of justice, health and human services and the department of homeland security are essentially saying that these kids who have already been separated from their parents won't be immediately reunited. and it will be up to the parents to talk to hhs and find a way to get back to it be reunited with their children. but there is no language in here, anderson, that reunites them with their families. >> seth: that's insane. they took 2,500 kids and have no plans for uniting them with their parents. our own government is committing an enormous human rights violation. and need i remind you, we are a member of the u.n. human rights counsel. >> the united states announces it is withdrawing from the united nations human rights council. >> seth: ah, son of a bitch. [ laughter and applause ] and on top of that, prosecutors and border patrol agents won't even give parents basic information about where their children are. a texas public defender representing parents who've had their children taken away
12:49 am
described one scene from immigration court in which he tried to get answers from an agent. it went like this. "do you know the location of the child?" "no or unknown." "did you provide my client with information as to location of his child?" "no or unknown." "did you provide my client with any information as to how he could go about finding his child?" "no or unknown." this administration has no idea what they're doing. what was the rest of that conversation like? "do you know where you are right now?" "no or unknown." "can you explain what the space force is?" [ laughter ] "no or unknown." "do you know how long fdr was president?" [ light laughter ] "oh, yeah, 16 years. 16." [ cheers and applause ] while all this strikes you as heartless and barbaric, just know that even the people charged with implementing it can't defend it. the acting director of immigration and customs enforcement thomas homan was asked a very simple question on cnn. is this policy humane? watch as he struggles to answer. >> is this new zero tolerance policy that the president has supported, that the attorney
12:50 am
general announced. is it humane? >> i think that -- i think it's the law. as law enforcement -- >> it may be the law. >> no. >> look, it's the policy. but is this humane? >> i think it's the law. and i'm law enforcement. i must follow the law. >> it clearly looks so inhumane. >> that's our job. >> seth: that's your job? where did you find it, on [ laughter ] also, any time you pause that long, the answer is not going to be good. "honey, who's kayla?" [ laughter ] "she is -- [ laughter ] a work friend." [ laughter ] trump has made very clear how he feels about immigration. he concocts lies about criminals pouring over the border and uses de-humanizing language to claim immigrants are infesting out our country.
12:51 am
but he also knows that to enact his harshest proposals, he needs more republicans in congress. so at his rally yesterday, trump tried to motivate his supporters to vote in november. but for some reason, he immediately undercut himself. >> we need more republicans. we got to get out there in the midterms. we need republicans to get out and put republicans in. what we want to do is we want to elect more republicans so that we can deliver on all of the things i'm talking about. and i'll be honest with you. we're going to deliver anyway. [ laughter ] >> seth: so trump's message to his supporters is "i want you to vote. but also if you don't vote, it doesn't matter." [ light laughter ] and you know what, i agree with trump when he says there is no need for republicans to vote this november. and to help him out -- to help him get that message out, we made an ad targeted directly at his supporters. >> president donald trump is making history. >> we cut more regulations than any administration, whether it's four years, eight years or 16 years in one case. >> he's already kept every
12:52 am
promise he's made. >> we fulfilled far more promises than we promised. i call it promises plus. [ light laughter ] >> america is already great again. >> space force. space force. >> space force. >> space force. [ light laughter ] >> which means this november, you can take it easy. >> now, you take a breath. you relax. >> because it doesn't matter if you vote. >> i'll be honest with you. we're going to deliver anyway. >> so what's the point? >> why should you vote? go to a movie instead. [ light laughter ] >> so remember, this november, listen to your president. >> you're wasting your time. >> paid for by the committee to make bad things stop happening. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] ♪ we'll be right back with colin quinn, everybody!

'cause i've been in the business 105 years. [ light laughter ] and i still have to tell people i had a heart attack. just another guy from tmz downstairs. i swear to god, walking in, i go, "well, i had a heart attack."

[ light laughter ] and the thing that bothers me the most is -- two things. one is, all my comedian friends, you'd expect them to be original and have, like, a take. the same, tired clichés that you people say. no offense. and -- yeah. they're like, you were really lucky. i'm like, "yeah, that was my lucky day.
1:03 am
i should have played powerball that day." [ light laughter ] that'll go down in history as my lucky day that i'll always think about. no, but it's like, i know how people look at heart attacks. like, i always looked at heart attack people, and i know people look at me that now. which is, like, you're not dead, but you're not a reliable member of the planet. [ laughter ] you're not somebody that we're gonna count on in the long run. you know, give plans, like a month ahead. but, you know -- [ light laughter ] 'cause it's, like, you're on, like, some kind of a warning track, or an on-deck circle. you're not dead, 'cause the most important thing in life is survival and you're not great at that, basically. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> and -- 'cause if i went out -- like if right now, anybody in this audience goes outside and dies in the street on 49th street, it'll be a tragedy. if i die, people will be like, "that was sad. he didn't have the heart, though. you know?" [ light laughter ] >> seth: but you -- lest anyone thinks that you are negative about -- >> lest? >> seth: lest anyone should think. >> yes. >> seth: after the heart attack --
1:04 am

[ light laughter ] like on wendy williams, she goes to the camera. you know, i produced -- all right, i'm the only one. all right, i added myself. [ light laughter ] look -- >> seth: and are you -- how are you -- how is wedding prep for you? are you better at it than you thought you would be? >> well, she just calls me a groomszilla. >> seth: oh, really? >> yeah. because, because there's two kinds of weddings that are both horrible in this country for the past 50 years. >> seth: two kinds of weddings. >> two kinds of weddings. and there's the -- "the over the top, cheese ball, loud wedding," where people are trying to have fun. and then there's the subtle, classy wedding, which is no fun whatsoever. so, you know, both of them are annoying. where, like, somebody's playing a cello. >> seth: oh, yeah. >> and the guy's wearing a white long shirt with no tie. and, it's kind of an npr
1:05 am
wedding. [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. what kind do, well, do -- >> well, where i was growing up, when i was growing up, of course, you had the boroughs wedding. that all of the places where a guy with a 50 inch neck goes, "now, all of you please join us in the elegante room. [ laughter ] for the bridle party toast." [ light laughter ] like, the bridal party gets a toast? you know? like, you know, strangers are running the most important day of your life. now please step over here. and then the other wedding, you know, it's just like conscious vows like, you know. and then they have the one wedding where it's, like, very serious and everyone gets, like, a tote bag at the end from, you know, all things considered. [ light laughter ] the groom's always like, "when i first saw you at the fundraiser for animals with mental disabilities -- [ laughter ] you know, i knew, we clicked when you questioned that assembly man about his supportive proposition 618." [ light laughter ] and then the other one's, they're like, "hey, you know, i saw you with señor locos and you were trying to use the men's bathroom.
1:06 am
i watched so you could pee in the men's bathroom." [ light laughter ] i didn't want anybody -- and, yeah, those are the two choices. >> seth: those are -- that's all you -- [ light laughter ] and what do you think? 'cause the other thing you don't have a lot of control over when you get married, your wedding, is how other people behave. >> yeah. >> seth: how do you think people play into the wedding experience as far as your guests? >> yeah. well, that's what it is. they all make it about themselves. you know, the maid of honor, it's all about her. and then you have the brides -- the groom's party, i always, you know, like, the guys that are, like, trying to relive their college days. and they're, like, doing shots. they're, like, the loud table. and they're like, "hey, where are we? everybody is probably wondering what we're up to." like, "oh, yeah." [ light laughter ] let's pull out -- let's call up the s.w.a.t. team with these guys. they're crazy. like, when i went to a couple of comedian funerals, i swear to god, like, half the guys would be, like, at comedian funerals, these are their friends. they're like, "he was a very great -- he always told me he loved this one joke i did." it's like, it's not about you at the -- you know what i mean? [ light laughter ] at the funeral. it's the same at weddings. there was, like, me and this person, like, a special connection. lay off. you know what i mean?
1:07 am
[ light laughter ] >> seth: you have -- this seems thematic to your new tour, which is called "one in every crowd." >> yeah. >> seth: is that about -- what does that refer to? >> well, that refers to the one person in every group, every organization, from nursery school to retirement home, doesn't matter, that's just one toxic person in every situation. there is one in your office. there is one in everybody's job. and it's just a phenomenon that i can't believe we don't -- it's not, like, a national, like, crisis that there's -- [ light laughter ] you know, whether you're in, like, you know, an order of nuns or a prison gang. there's one person. [ light laughter ] like, even doctors without borders, a good organization, there's one doctor, i'm sure there's, like, "oh, you call that fixing a cleft pallet? i don't know, man." [ laughter ] he's like, "why? i'm trying to help person. i drill thousands a month. there's just that one person that -- and it transcends, like, i really feel, like, like, you could take black lives matter or nascar, and they may hate each other, but in each one of those groups there is one person that
1:08 am
is a higher purpose, which is to destroy all the people around them too. >> seth: yeah.

>> seth: welcome to the show. >> i'm delighted to join you. >> seth: i was going to say it's been an interesting week in washington. but i feel that has been true for a long time. >> it is. >> seth: yeah. >> it has. >> seth: we are on a real streak of interesting weeks. this week, you had the president saying that what was happening with family separations was the democrats' fault. obviously, the specifics of the family separation, that was not true, it was the democrats' fault. but now, he signed this executive order which still allows for indefinite detention and does nothing to get these children back to their families. is it now, with those problems that have been created, is this a problem for the president? or is this a problem for you and your colleagues in congress? >> well, first of all, it's not unusual for this president to blame others for problems that he had a big hand in creating. >> seth: yes. >> and, so, just to be clear, he created a policy a month ago, back in may, his zero tolerance policy. and that policy resulted in what we've just watched aghast on our
1:14 am
televisions and -- you know, in discussions. it's been heartbreaking. his executive order yesterday, we were all waiting. they're like, "oh, is he going to reverse this? has he finally acknowledged that this was immoral and that he needs to do something about it?" and then we read the details. and, of course, it doesn't address the over 2,000 children who are already separated from their parents. and it doesn't -- i mean, it doesn't change the fact that we would be jailing children with their families, which is still wrong. and, you know, it's as though the united states government has just kidnapped 2,000 children and there is no plan to reunite them with their parents. and it's amazing that we are talking about the idea that we would need to have congress pass a bill to make the administration do the right thing here. but that may end up being what we have to do. >> seth: with children being used as political pawns -- >> yes. >> seth: which is something that attorney general jeff sessions
1:15 am
basically admitted. this is for -- chief of staff jon kelly admitted, this was a deterrent, that if you take children away from parents, less people will come. isn't it something -- you know, obviously, this is something the administration is doing. are you surprised that your republican colleagues aren't stepping forward faster saying, look, there's one thing none of us should every do, no matter what our party is, which is to use children as pawns? >> right. but they haven't stepped forward when it's happened in the past. so, this isn't the first time. although this is probably, you know, almost unspeakable to watch children being ripped away from their mothers and fathers. but whether it's for deterrent effect, as they say, or to get his wall. >> seth: mm-hmm. >> he did this with dreamers. >> seth: right. >> and he did this with the child health insurance program, which was allowed to expire for weeks and weeks and weeks. we're talking about children getting the care that they need and not being dropped off of it.
1:16 am
so, this is not the first time. and most of it has been as leverage for his -- his wall. >> seth: things are so depressing that i want to thank you, because you come from wisconsin which is known for cheese and beer. [ cheers and applause ] >> yes! and a lot of other things. >> seth: and a lot of other things. >> yes. >> seth: but you were kind enough to actually bring beer. >> yes. >> seth: and while we are talking about this, i would much rather have a beer out. so can we bring it out? >> yes. >> seth: yeah. okay, great. there we go. this is -- do you wanna tell? yeah, we don't have to pour it in a glass, right? >> right, no. >> seth: okay, great. that's perfect. so, this is a famous beer. >> yes, it is. >> seth: okay. >> okay. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: that's a lot better. that is a lot better. you have an interesting situation right now. you have a re-election campaign coming up in the midterms. no candidate has had more outside money spent in order to defeat you than you have. and you don't actually have an opponent yet, correct? do you have -- >> well, the primary hasn't happened yet. >> seth: the primaries haven't
1:17 am
happened, so -- >> so, they haven't nominated an opponent. >> seth: so, they -- basically, their problem not that they like the other person more than you, they just want to stop you. how do -- >> i think you're right. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: and this is outside money from billionaires. how do you even approach going into an election knowing that you have so much stacked up against you as far as outside interests? >> yeah. well, i guess you would have to -- >> seth: this helps, right? [ light laughter ] >> i guess you have to choose to, sort of wear it as a badge of honor. [ light laughter ] now, these donors, they have an an agenda. they have -- they're special interests. and i don't think they like me. and whether it's, you know, big pharma that i'm fighting for making sure that they don't jack up the prices of drugs that wisconsinites needs to to survive. or insurance companies that are working with folks to try to get rid of coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. or, you know, wall street hedge funds that enjoy their tax loopholes. i don't think they like me much
1:18 am
because i'm fighting for the people of wisconsin and against them. >> seth: i want to ask you about this. you had started politics in your 20s. you were openly gay for your first election. now you are the first openly gay senator elected. >> yes. >> seth: to the united states. [ cheers and applause ] >> first woman too, from wisconsin. >> seth: first -- yep. first woman from wisconsin. a lot of firsts. and yet you said that was not as much of a hurdle for voters in your state as you thought it would be. is that true? >> i think it is true. i think that voters are looking for somebody who is in their corner, who is listening. listening is a key trait these days that we don't see enough. and i think they are just looking for somebody who has their back and is fighting for them every day. wisconsin's number one in cheese production. almost a quarter of all the cheese in the country, we're america's dairy land. we also have a huge manufacturing sector. so you know us for beer and brats and cheese, but you also know us from motorcycles and
1:19 am
bicycles and you know us for ships. we make ships for the navy. you know us for all sorts of things. and fighting for those things that identify us as wisconsinites and our work ethic and those cultural traditions, i think that's what's really important to voters in my state. >> seth: well, that's fantastic. thank you so much for being here. it's just a real -- [ cheers and applause ] real pleasure to meet you. >> cheers. >> seth: yeah, cheers. >> but we can shake too. >> seth: yeah, we'll shake too. senator tammy baldwin, everybody. we'll be right back with missy robbins. thank you so much.
