[ cheers and applause that is great to hear. in that case, let's get to the news after a new fox news poll found that 51% of people are in favor of impeachment, president trump attacked the network saying, "i have never had a good fox news poll
whoever their pollster is, they suck." [ laughter ] i don't know not according to the poll. [ laughter ] two associates of president trump's lawyer, rudy giuliani, were arrested last night for campaign finance violations. hmm, well, looking at their faces i'm sure this is all just a big understanding. [ laughter ] according to prosecutors, two associates of rudy giuliani who were arrested last night had purchased one-way airline tickets out of the country but, of course, giuliani's most dangerous associate has his own plane. [ laughter and applause according to cnn fact checkers, president trump made 66 false claims last week said trump, "actually we didn't even have a last week. this is our first one. [ laughter and applause this is our first week ever. thanks to the trump administration."
the oxford english dictionary added several new words this month, including the phrases "fake news" and "circlejerk," which, coincidentally, were both working titles for the show, "fox & friends." [ laughter and applause a vegan woman claimed on reddit this week that she called the police on her friends after they tricked her into eating chicken nuggets while she was drunk. but the whole thing sounds a little suspicious. a vegan with friends [ laughter ] [ applause ] i don't know custom officials in los angeles announced yesterday that they seized over $2 million worth of counterfeit sneakers from a cargo shipment said customers, "you mean, those weren't real adudises? [ laughter ] according to a new report, nearly two-thirds of birds in the united states are at risk of extinction due to climate change
"don't worry, we're not going anywhere," said the mangy one-legged pigeons of new york [ laughter and applause we're going to live forever, bro. and finally, a family in south carolina recently pulled a package from the ocean that contained 44 pounds of cocaine or as the captain put it, "thar's me blow!

[ light laughter ] moving on, two of rudy giuliani's associates were arrested last night as support for impeachment rises in the polls. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause >> seth: over the last few weeks we've seen support for impeaching president trump skyrocket by double digits, and it really feels like a potentially seismic political shift is happening right now in fact, even "fox news," the network trump loves the most, released a damning new poll yesterday showing that a majority of registered voters not only want trump impeached, they want him removed from office completely.
>> a new fox poll just out shows more than half of registered voters who were asked support impeachment. >> our brand new fox news poll, the headline -- more than half of those polled, 51%, want president trump impeached and removed from office. >> seth: damn, and that's a fox news poll. [ light laughter ] so you know they only called land lines, c.b. radios and vfw halls. [ laughter and applause fox news -- fox news is what trump watches to feel good about himself. that's like if a kid turned on "sesame street" and big bird was just smoking a cigarette going, "face it, kid, you're never going to learn how to spell. [ laughter and applause now, of course, to make himself feel better trump likes to periodically hold a campaign rally with his remaining fans where he reels off a bunch of unhinged nonsense. and that's what he did tonight, after we taped this show, in minneapolis. or at least i think he went to minneapolis. yesterday he had some trouble saying the name of the city. >> i want to also thank the
minneanapolis police department. [ light laughter ] >> seth: that's right, he's going to minneanapolis, which i believe is in mindiana [ laughter ] he sounds like siri giving you directions after having a few too many glasses of wine with dinner >> you have arrived in minneanapolis. [ laughter ] >> seth: but when he's not basking in the adoration of his most fawning admirers at his unhinged rallies, trump is apparently freaking out about losing support among republicans in congress. in fact, he's so worried about republicans in the senate turning on him that he's been calling senate majority leader mitch mcconnell nonstop to lock down republican support. >> new indications of just how seriously president trump is now taking the impeachment inquiry, and how seriously he's pushing to keep republican senators -- potential jurors, remember -- in line >> one of the things we've learned is that the president is so consumed with this impeachment inquiry that he's now calling senator mcconnell as many as three times a day. >> seth: three times a day
is he trying to keep mcconnell in line or stalk him "mitch, mitch, we're best friends, mitch, aren't we, mitch? [ light laughter ] mitch. do you like my new haircut, mitch? i'm just like you, mitch i'm just like you. [ laughter and applause trump, of course -- trump, of course, is freaking out because every day we learn more about the scheme trump and his gang of mafia-themed pez dispensers concocted to get ukraine to dig up dirt on joe biden now, trump has been insisting that his phone call with ukraine's president, in which he dangled hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid and in return told the president of ukraine, "i would like you to do us a favor, though," was not just appropriate but perfect he's literally said or tweeted that specific word dozens of times. >> the conversation i had with the president of ukraine was absolutely perfect the conversation, by the way, was absolutely perfect it was a perfect conversation. it was perfect the call was perfect that was a perfect conversation. just so you know, the call was perfect. it was perfect it was perfect the call was a perfect call. it was a perfect call.
perfect call had a perfect phone call with the president of ukraine like, i mean, perfect. the call was a perfect call. the conversation was, i think, a perfect conversation that call was perfect. >> seth: i think he's trying to drive us all insane. [ laughter ] hearing -- hearing a grown man describe a phone call as perfect over and over and over again feels like an elaborate form of torture. i feel like i should be strapped to a chair in a basement with voices whispering from the shadows. >> the call was perfect. >> it was a perfect call >> it was perfect. >> the call was perfect. >> it was a perfect conversation >> it was a perfect call >> seth: all right, i'll tell you what you want to know! just stop calling a phone call perfect. nobody says that [ light laughter ] seriously, i'm almost certain that no one in the history of the english language has ever called a phone call perfect before think of the greatest phone call you've ever had in your life you've never hung up the phone and gone, "damn! that was perfect [ laughter ] whoo whoo
[ applause ] i mean, i rescheduled that dentist appointment like a mother [ bleep ]." [ laughter ] he's talking about a phone call like it was an event at the olympics "okay. talk to you soon judges [ laughter ] yes! so, trump has insisted the call was perfect, and yet once again, yesterday, fox news' poll showed that the vast majority of registered voters definitely do not think it was perfect >> the fox news poll also gauged voters' reaction to what president trump said on his phone call with his ukrainian counterpart regarding possible pressure put on ukraine to investigate the bidens 43% say it's an impeachable offense. >> seth: if trump can't rely on fox news to make himself feel better, what can he watch? his aides are going to have to replace his tv with a mirror and hope he doesn't notice [ laughter ] "have you guys seen this show? it's pretty good wait, what were you looking at [ laughter ]
get in here, guys! so now that trump is freaking out about the growing support for impeachment in the polls, he's throwing as many people as he can under the bus last week, for example, trump tried to pin the blame for the ukraine phone call on his energy secretary, rick perry, claiming it was perry's idea to make the call in the first place. but then we found out yesterday that trump ordered perry and two state department officials to coordinate with his personal attorney, rudy giuliani, as part of the scheme to extort ukraine and get them to gin up politically motivated investigations >> two sources tell cnn that president trump directed his energy secretary, rick perry, and two top state department officials to circumvent official channels and to have his personal attorney, rudy giuliani, deal with a potential meeting with the ukrainian president. >> seth: so, trump concocted a scheme to dangle hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid to ukraine as part of a quid pro quo to get them to dig up dirt on a political opponent and to carry out this plan he chose as his henchmen rick perry and rudy giuliani, who are famously two of the dumbest people in politics [ light laughter ] it's like if lex luthor hatched a plan to kill superman and
chose as his assassins mr. bean and woody from "cheers." [ laughter and applause "you ready to do this? all right. i'll take the front. you take the back, bean. [ light laughter ] and then today, things got much, much worse for rudy when two of his associates who'd been working with him as part of the scheme to dig up dirt on biden were arrested and charged with breaking campaign finance laws >> we begin with breaking news this hour. two associates of rudy giuliani arrested this morning. due in court in virginia later today, facing criminal charges for violating campaign finance laws it really all has to do with ukraine. >> their names are igor fruman and lev parnas and they were arrested at a washington airport with what prosecutors say were one-way tickets out of the country >> rudy giuliani has previously stated that he has worked with the two men on efforts to get ukraine to investigate former vice president joe biden
>> seth: i can't believe a guy who looks like a vampire had a henchman named igor. is this a -- [ laughter ] -- mary shelley novel? what was igor's job? to open rudy's coffin? "master, arise." [ laughter and applause now, the danger for rudy and for trump is that these guys might flip on them and give prosecutors more evidence about their scheme and now that two of his close associates have been arrested and charged with crimes, rudy might be regretting the fact he's been all over tv blabbing about his involvement in all of this in fact, here are some of rudy's greatest and most nonsensical highlights from just the last few weeks. >> did you read the transcript >> like to say, it was read to me >> it was read to you, the whole thing. >> i hope. >> shut up, moron. shut up. >> okay. >> shut up you don't know what you're talking about. bill clinton asked me, what's this guy, romney, like you know what i told him he's our al gore >> all right, rudy, hold that thought. >> here's kurt saying great, i will tell yermack and he'll
visit with you there, thanks >> i'm spartacus >> biden's been off the trail. >> supported by three affidavits >> the guy was under investigation. the guy bankrupted - >> let me just tell the audience >> he's been selling - how about this >> no, no, i don't want to move on yet >> here's another one. i don't know about it. i didn't hear it [ laughter ] >> forget the whistle-blower, we have the transcript of the call and the president's remarks. >> shh i want you to keep your eye on romania. just watch romania just watch romania we go to china, i told you about romania. we haven't moved to romania yet. wait until we get to romania >> seth: i definitely can't wait until you get to romania [ laughter ] there's probably a short trip from there back to where you live in transylvania [ laughter and applause also, by the way, remember -- remember those papers rudy was holding up in that one clip claiming that they were affidavits that proved his allegations? well, according to buzzfeed, they weren't they were pages printed from an obscure right-wing conspiracy theory website so the president's personal lawyer, a man who is at the center of an impeachment inquiry
and an allegedly criminal scheme to extort a foreign country to dig up dirt on a political opponent, is an insane old man who goes on tv and waves around printouts from conspiracy websites next time he's just going to bring the printer test page. "now, the yellow line is ukrainian military and then the red line is money that hunter biden made. it's all right here. [ laughter ] and while republicans entertain -- and while republicans entertain these insane fantasies, the whistle-blower who first alerted us to trump's phone call keeps coming forward with more actual evidence, as we found out yet again yesterday. >> cbs news has learned that according to a memo by the whistle-blower, a white house official who listened in on the call to ukraine's president described the call as crazy, frightening, and completely lacking in substance related to national security. >> the official was visibly shaken by what had transpired. and in the official's view, the president had clearly committed a criminal act >> seth: wow, that is damning. when he heard that, trump immediately ran out of the white
house and tried to escape to - >> minneanapolis [ laughter ] >> seth: now, seeing that more evidence is emerging and that support for impeachment is rising in the polls, trump is trying to take as many people down with him, while his inner circle tries to do everything they can to distance themselves from the scandal for example, you might remember that trump dragged vice president mike pence into his mess when he told reporters to look at pence's conversations with the president of ukraine. and then the "washington post" reported that trump involved pence in his efforts to pressure ukraine's leader so yesterday reporters asked pence how much he knew about the scheme, and pence wouldn't give a straight answer. >> were you ever aware, mr. vice president, of the interest in the bidens that interest in investigating the bidens was at least, in part of the reason for aid to ukraine being held up? were you ever aware? >> i -- i never discussed the issue of -- of -- the issue of the bidens with president zelensky, and -- >> but within the administration, were you ever aware? within the administration? >> what i can tell you is that all of our discussions internally - >> but you were aware of the
interest in the bidens being investigated >> i was - >> and that being tied to aid to ukraine being held up? >> well, that's your question. let me be very clear the issue of aid and -- and our efforts with regard to ukraine were, from my experience, in no way connected. >> seth: "uh, uh, what you - um - [ light laughter ] what you need to know from me about this is i don't want to go to jail. [ laughter and applause hey. hey, mike pence. i can't believe i'm saying this, but maybe you should let rudy handle this one. [ laughter ] i mean, he's probably working on his pence impression right now [ laughter ] in fact, given that two people have now been arrested and that support for impeachment is rising the polls, my legal advice for all of these guys would be very simple

[ laughter ] >> seth: so, how was your contact experience >> well, it was interesting becuase the first person -- they have to get, you know, somebody who knows what they're doing to put it in. in fact, i wore some for "snl,"
and they had to get somebody to put it in. and it fell out at one point, we had to find it but somebody came by, a guy, and i felt bad for him, but he was kind of -- he was putting it in, like this. >> seth: oh, he had nerves [ laughter ] >> and i was, like "okay, hey.

or is that sort of under wraps >> i wish. >> seth: yeah, okay. >> well, we've had, like, little tidbits here and there we were kind of guessing throughout season one where it would go and then, actually at the cast and crew screening at ryan's house, we watched four episodes and went to the restaurant nearby for much-needed wine. and then watched the last four but in that break, and after he was saying, like, "wouldn't it be kind of crazy if this happened?" and we'd all be like, "well, you're the one with the pen so --" >> seth: yeah, right [ laughter ] >> it would be kind of crazy, so - >> seth: yeah, i mean, this is -- this is ryan murphy, for anybody who doesn't know >> yeah. >> seth: and he -- i would say there's no one who's better at taking shows into crazy places >> yes >> seth: and making those crazy places believable. so it must be really - >> yeah, and he'll always outsmart you he'll always be one step ahead so anything that we're guessing, it will be that on acid. [ laughter ] >> seth: you -- this is -- this isn ationau that you did not think went well for you. is that -- >> no. no >> seth: okay. >> it was really terrifying, i think. just -- he's such an unreadable person
and that's all part of his kind of thing that makes him so cool. but then also, like, i think auditioning in america is a very different thing. brits are all very kind of, like, understated and, "that's fine, leave. >> seth: uh-huh. >> whereas in america, everyone's very effusive and kind and enthusiastic. [ laughter ] and so that was just kind of - >> seth: oh, gotcha. >> so it's in, like -- >> seth: so he was a little england in the united states he had a little -- >> he's just so cool >> seth: -- his own thing. yeah >> he's -- yeah. so that was that and then i was -- i -- it went by so quickly. so then i kind of -- it was done, and i left and i turned right and i turned right again and walked straight into the bar next door. >> seth: oh, great [ laughter ] >> yeah. yes. >> seth: it's very nice when they audition near a drinking establishment. >> it is so considerate. >> seth: yes >> yes >> seth: that's very kind of them >> noting that for all casting directors. >> seth: from the clip, for those who haven't seen the show, you can tell this is not the warmest of characters that you're playing >> quite >> seth: and i've i heard that your sister takes credit for this >> she does. for both kind of being very familiar with that face, and also inducing it as well, i think.
>> seth: gotcha. [ laughter ] >> yeah. like, kind of when you weren't allowed to be mean to each other, you just kind of make that astrid face over the kitchen table. but, also, it was really -- it was fun. it was liberating playing someone like that. like, as a brit, i think we're so apologetic. like, if you bump into me, i'll apologize. >> seth: right >> and then you kind of as astrid have to shed all that and she wears her anger on her sleeve >> seth: do you feel like this -- you might adopt this in your real life >> i think i did a bit >> seth: yeah, i think you're very -- you're very good at it >> i think i did - >> seth: yeah. >> when we were filming, i was like, "well, no, she's very confident. so it feels very good to adopt some of her confidence and then i would catch myself kind of making her face. [ light laughter ] or snapping something. it was like, "oh, okay, we need to reel that back in a bit." [ laughter ] >> seth: it's a fantastic show i'm so excited there's another season >> me, too >> seth: and it's just so lovely to meet you. >> thank you so much >> seth: thank you so much for being here >> thank you [ cheers and applause >> seth: lucy boynton, everybody. the first season of "the politician" is streaming now on netflix. we'll be right back with more "late night.
