[ cheers and applause and we have a music -- we have music from a powerful miami-based rock band. torche is here so it's a great show [ cheers and applause very excited to have you all before we get to our guests, the trump administration has
12:41 am
announced a new rule that would limit legal immigration by imposing a wealth test for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause >> seth: trump has many racist conspiracy theories about immigrants he thinks they're being funded by shadowy groups. he thinks it's a plot to invade america. and he's pretty sure at least one of his sons snuck in from transylvania [ laughter ] "secret service, he's out of his coffin again." [ laughter ] trump also has this insane theory that other countries are somehow rigging the visa lottery system to put their worst people in the pottery he's repeated it many times, including at a rally earlier this month >> how about the lottery system? how about lotteries? you put the name in a basket the country puts the name in the basket and you pick people out of the lottery. well, let's see. this one's a murderer. this one robbed four banks this one, i'd better not say this one, another murderer
12:42 am
ladies and gentlemen, another murderer >> seth: it sounds like he's picking his cabinet. [ laughter ] "bank robber [ cheers and applause oh, a murderer oh, you guys you guys, we got a cannibal. [ laughter and applause but trump continued. >> think of this, do you think they're going to put their great citizens - they have great citizens they have great people like we have great people. do you think those people are going into a lottery no and then we get these people coming in. you just take a look, look at the people they put into these lotteries. >> seth: that's not how it works. countries don't put people in the lotteries. [ light laughter ] people enter themselves. and it's not murderers saying "the police are closing in i better make my escape by entering a random drawing. [ laughter ] this is one of trump's favorite insane conspiracy theories and he's repeated it countless times throughout his presidency. >> they have a lottery you pick people.
12:43 am
you think the countries are giving us their best people? no visa lottery visa lottery boom who is this? who is this? and then when they turn out to be not so good, we say, "i wonder why?" well, maybe the countries giving us their worst in those lotteries. does that make any sense think of it, a lottery you pick people. now let me ask you so these countries that are sending people in, do you think they're sending us their finest? and then we wonder why we have problems we're not going to be a stupid country anymore. >> seth: we're still very much the stupid country [ laughter and applause stupid is our brand. obama made us cool you made us stupid one of the other problems here is unlike more complicated terms, trump thinks he knows what a lottery is. so even though he's wrong, he's trying to flex his muscles i'm surprised he didn't just start talking about scratch-offs at some point. [ light laughter ] "and they give you a card and you use a dime, ideally.
12:44 am
worst case, your thumb and you just start scratching. and if you get three matching flags, that's your new home. [ laughter ] that's how it works in a lottery! [ applause ] a visa lottery." trump feeds his supporters these racist conspiracy theories to make them think that undeserving immigrants are coming here and draining our public resources, which is a bigoted lie and now he's taking that lie one step further by implementing a y institute a wealth test in order to limit legal immigration >> a major policy change by the trump administration is trying to dramatically limit legal immigration into the u.s the so-called public charge rule would make it more difficult for people who are, again, here legally, but rely on some form of government assistance medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers, some of the examples it would make it harder for them to get a green card. the new criteria favors wealthier, more educated immigrants >> the national immigration law center calls the new rule a
12:45 am
wealth test on immigrants. >> i don't think it's fair to have the american taxpayer pay for people that come into the united states. i am tired of seeing our taxpayer paying for people that come into the country and immediately go onto welfare and various other things so i think we're doing it right. >> seth: so now you're suddenly concerned about wasting taxpayers' money you've already spent more than $100 million just on golf trips. [ light laughter ] and i have one more simple fix for this we don't need to stop paying for his golf, we just need to stop paying for his golf cart because just imagine how fast he would lose interest if he had to walk "this sucks. [ laughter ] i'm gonna play a sport where you don't have to move so much like grass luge." [ laughter ] this is fundamentally antithetical to everything that america is supposed to stand for. in fact, that ethos is famously etched on the statue of liberty in the emma lazarus poem "the new colossus." yesterday trump's acting director of u.s. citizenship and immigration services
12:46 am
ken cuccinelli was asked on npr about that poem and said this. >> would you also agree emma lazarus's words etched on the statue of liberty, "give me your tired, your poor," are also part of the american ethos >> they certainly are. give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge. >> seth: first of all, you can't just rewrite the poem. [ laughter ] especially a poem on a plaque. once it's on a plaque, it's the thing. [ laughter ] the sign says "no smoking. not "no smoking but also smoking. [ laughter ] second, you want them to stand on their own two feet? trump can't stand on his two feet [ light laughter ] look at him. he's like a drunk guy trying real hard to pretend he's sober. [ applause ] trump is doing this for two reasons -- one, he's a racist and racism is at the core of his immigration policy and two, he can't deliver on any of the other promises he's made to voters. that's why his administration inflicts cruelty on desperate migrant families, like when they conducted the largest single-state immigration raid in
12:47 am
history last week and separated children from their parents. meanwhile, he can't actually do anything to help the people he promised to help the so-called forgotten men and women of america, the working class he claimed he championed he told them he'd fix everything and that it would be so easy you know, like health care >> we're going to get you something so good. so much less expensive so much better you know what it's called? it's better and less expensive that's a good combination. you're going to have such great health care at a tiny fraction of the cost. and it's going to be so easy >> seth: as a general rule, never take advice from a guy in a camouflage hat with orange font because - [ laughter ] it's a weird choice. i mean, i get the orange, but not the words, you know? you've never seen a hunter going into the woods in camo gear with bright orange writing that says "i am a hunter." [ laughter ] now a universal health care system that guarantees health care as a human right is possible, as many industrialized nations and democrats running for president have shown but trump made the promise without having any clue what he was talking about.
12:48 am
and then, of course, once it came time to come up with an actual plan, like any con artist, he tried to talk in circles until people forgot what he'd promised. >> this will be a plan where you can choose your doctor this will be a plan where you can choose your plan and you know what the plan is? this is the plan [ laughter ] >> seth: oh, my god. he always sounds like he's playing taboo and he can't think of a second clue that's not -- [ laughter and applause like, "uh, it's a plan, like a plan a plan it's a plan. you know, a plan [ buzzing the word was plan. i was cheating [ laughter ] i was cheating the whole time. then there was trump's promise to save manufacturing jobs during a stop in ohio two years ago, he told residents he would single handedly save their manufacturing plants in fact, he literally told the people at his rally who were worried about losing their jobs not to move. >> i rode through your beautiful roads coming up from the airport and i was --
12:49 am
i was looking at some of those big, once incredible, job producing factories. and my wife, melania, said, "what happened?" i said, "those jobs have left ohio." they're all coming back. they're all coming back. [ cheers and applause coming back. don't move don't sell your house. don't sell your house. >> seth: if donald trump, a man who has gone bankrupt six times and is infamous for some of the biggest real estate disasters in history tells you don't sell your house, sell your house. [ laughter and applause trump is - trump is the kind of guy who would tell people during a tornado, "you definitely want to be by a window [ laughter ] be by a window so you can see it sometimes they have cows inside." [ laughter ] once again, you'll never guess what happened. a plant nearby in lordstown closed in march. then when the cruel reality of trump's empty promises came crashing down on the workers he
12:50 am
promised to help, all trump could do was offer a useless tweet. and once again, he clearly had no idea how to deliver on his promise. >> "just spoke to mary barra, ceo of general motors, about the lordstown, ohio plant. i am not happy that it is closed when everything else in our country is booming i asked her to sell it or do something quickly. she blamed the uaw union i don't care i just want it open. >> seth: hey, ass[ bleep ] you told them not to sell their homes. a tweet whining that you're not happy isn't good enough. it's like if your buddy told you invest everything you have in bitcoin and then when it crashed sent you a text that was just a dollar emoji and a surprise face [ laughter ] also what do you mean, "i asked her to do something? do what? you're the guy who said you were going to save the jobs you're supposed to have the ideas. like a plumber who shows up and takes a look at your toilet then just screams, "unclog! [ laughter ] and by the way, that plant in ohio is far from alone in fact, just two weeks ago, gm idled another plant in michigan,
12:51 am
which might come as a shock to people who were at these trump rallies in michigan in 2016. >> i've been saying your car industry is being sucked away from michigan. it's happening if i'm elected, you won't lose one plant. you'll have plants coming into this country you're going to have jobs again. you won't lose one plant i promise you. [ cheers and applause i promise you. so all i say is this, you want to build your plant in mexico, have a great time. but if you think you're going to ship your product across the border, which will be a very strong border, by the way. for no tax, no nothing so we end up with unemployment, and we end up with empty plants and factories. and you end up with the money, the jobs, and the plants you can forget it. and you know what would happen if you said that right upfront, nobody's leaving, folks. you stop it right away the politicians don't want to say that, because most of them are too stupid to even understand it. >> seth: they are too stupid dude, you're too stupid to spell the word, country, your wife's
12:52 am
name, and your own name. [ laughter and applause i mean, imagine if this guy tried meeting his own immigration standards. he has no discernible skills, lost a billion dollars, and can't spell his own name he'd flunk the citizenship test before he even got to the first question [ laughter ] trump inflicts cruelty on desperate migrants fleeing poverty and violence, because first, he's a racist, and racism is at the core of his ideology and second, he's failed at literally everything else he's promised to do you need a plan to expand health care, save manufacturing jobs. you can't just do it by tweeting or yelling at people, but trump is - >> too stupid to even understand it >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause we'll be right back with michael che, everybody [ cheers and applause ♪ ♪ >> announcer: for more of seth's "closer looks," be sure to subscribe to "late night" on youtube. volunteerism.

[ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. you made -- this is very exciting you made your directorial debut on the show this year. >> yes >> seth: which, of course, has all -- i would imagine, a ton of challenges but also you had to direct a baby >> yes, yes. i feel like the gift of the episode is that i'm not in it really at all, so that was nice to not have to direct myself - >> seth: sure. >> my first time around. and then the curse was the demon
1:18 am
baby that i had to - [ laughter ] i'm joking obviously, this baby was not possessed by satan's spawn [ light laughter ] i don't think. no, it was two very sweet twin girls who are one and a half, and i think don't want to be held by strangers. >> seth: of course >> and do what they're told. >> seth: yeah, it's a lot to ask. >> and want to just run around but they definitely scream-cried, through most of the days that we were shooting with them, which you'll see in the episode. 'cause eventually i was like, "it works for the scene. [ light laughter ] they should be screaming and crying when their mother is holding them." >> seth: yeah. >> we did have - you know two of our girls on the show, kimmy and rebecca, who are mothers, are in one scene with her, the little girl, and she's playing a little boy so, you know, we're progressive. [ laughter ] and we have like a behind-the-scenes video of them hiding around the hallway corner trying to coax her you know, in the show, it just looks like she's like toddling off, and then like bopping around the corner. and meanwhile, behind, they were like, "come on we have cheerios

we have cheerios we have candy. we have m&m's. it worked. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's good anything - as a director, anything that works is acceptable. >> i agree >> seth: you have to practice wrestling moves. that will not surprise anyone. i do think it was probably surprising to your cat that -- >> yes >> seth: you would ever use them [ laughter ] >> this is a good -- to really zoom in on that face he's like, "why? [ laughter ] the thing is, this was from season one training. i was so excited about even the smallest things that we would learn, somersaults and - >> seth: sure. >> obviously, headlocks. and i would get home, and try to do them on my husband, dave. >> seth: yeah. >> and he would try to, like, fight back and wrestle me. and i'd be like, "babe, no." you have to like go -- you don't understand how wrestling works it's a partnership and, like, if i'm going to put you in a head lock, you have to let me, and make me look strong.

>> hey, i have a great idea just for this photo for fun could i put my head right there? >> seth: and then you saw -- you walked off and then you realized they ask that of anybody, whether they're in "glow" or not. >> yeah, yeah. saw them with oprah, and it's like, what [ light laughter ] >> seth: this is really cool because i think when you get into acting, you hope certain things will happen but i don't know if you could have predicted this. you're on the cover of "espn: the magazine" with becky lynch >> yes >> seth: who's a professional wrestler this is a fantastic photo. [ cheers and applause >> thank you >> seth: it must be cool to have sort of dipped your toe enough into that world for them to want you to be a part of it >> definitely. it still is, like, mind-boggling to me, because growing up i didn't have an athletic bone in my body. like, theater sports was the closest that i got and this show has really, like, gotten me in tune with my body in a different way but that day, doing that photo shoot, i definitely was standing there in this ring, like, posing for the cover of "espn: the magazine." i was like, "my dad is going to be so proud.

[ laughter ] when we're around the actors he was like, "could you call me david franco?" [ laughter ] i need you to be professional. but we're not -- we're a real, like, "babe" and "honey" household. >> seth: and it's hard to drop out of that.
