[ laughter ] today was national reptile awareness day.
12:40 am
so take a moment and remember that you too can save 15% or more on car insurance.

[ light laughter ] charmin has set up a new toilet paper-dispensing kiosk in a manhattan park so if you're in a manhattan park, and you're searching for toilet paper, something has gone horribly wrong [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause according to a new report, a species of rat-eating monkeys in malaysia have been instrumental in protecting farms and crops from rodent infestations said the mta, "we're listening [ laughter ] please do not be afraid of the rodent-eating monkeys.

[ cheers and applause and we will have music from british musician sam fender. so you're here - [ cheers and applause -- on a great night. before we get to all that, today the president melted down yet again in a q&a with reporters after his white house basically confessed to multiple corrupt abuses of power. for more on this it's time for "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ♪ >> seth: we say this a lot but it was true again today.
12:42 am
donald trump talked to reporters. and once again, he lost his mind in fact, you should just assume that's always the case his mind has always been lost. at this point, it would be more shocking if cnn told us his mind had been found [ light laughter ] breaking news. trump was normal today [ laughter and applause the president has always, always been unhinged. and he's always hopped from scandal to scandal but now with the impeachment inquiry intensifying, it just feels like more is happening faster the trump administration right now feels like the sports center of scandals. instead of having to keep track of a bunch of different scandals like we did for the first three years, now we're just getting all the highlights crammed together at once trump just admitted to a quid pro quo in d.c and now we take you to new york, where aaron rodgers just hit rudy giuliani with a 38-yard touchdown pass right in the [ bleep ]. [ laughter and applause so as a result, there are just more opportunities for trump to melt down in public. and that's what happened again today. for example trump said this insane thing about his abrupt and widely- criticized decision
12:43 am
to abandon our kurdish allies in syria who have been fighting isis >> isis was all over the place i'm the one, meaning it was me, and this administration working with others, including the kurds, that captured all of these people that you're talking about right now. most of the isis fighters that we captured -- we, we, not obama, we. we captured them, me so i'm the one that did the capturing. >> seth: no. [ laughter ] no, you're not you're not the one who did the capturing. he makes it sound like he was parachuting into syria on weekends like tom cruise in "mission: impossible." [ laughter and applause trump also insisted, once again, that his infamous phone call with the president of ukraine, in which he dangled hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid as part of a quid pro quo to get ukraine to manufacture dirt on joe biden, was perfect. but today he seemed to forget that it was a phone call and kept calling it a letter >> this thing is all about a letter that was perfect.
12:44 am
you never hear the letter anymore. the whistleblower's account was totally different than the letter the whistleblower gave a false account. >> seth: the whistleblower gave a false account? you keep calling a phone call "a letter." [ laughter ] trump probably just changed it in his mind from a phone call to a letter, because he loves getting letters. he's always carrying them around and waving them in the air, showing them off to reporters. [ laughter ] i mean, look at him. he's like a high school senior running into the house with his college acceptance letter. [ laughter ] "mom, look, kim jong-un loved my essay. [ laughter and applause trump then moved on -- [ cheers and applause trump then moved on to defending his temporary decision to hold next year's g7 summit with world leaders at his private golf course in florida, which he rescinded on saturday after two days of intense backlash trump insisted his golf course was the perfect site for an international summit >> everybody in the g7 would have had their own building it was so good florida loved it they love economic development
12:45 am
it's -- it's not because -- it's a beautiful place. it's new it's been totally rebuilt. it's new everything's good. got massive meeting rooms. unlimited for security because it's on, you know, hundreds of acres. best location. right next to the airport. miami international, one of the biggest airports in the world. some people say it's the biggest. but one of the biggest airports in the world >> seth: what do you mean "some say it's the big --" [ laughter ] it either is or -- it's not a mystery. [ laughter ] we can measure it. and as a reporter noted on twitter, it's not even in the top 20 [ laughter and applause trump -- i mean, trump talks about it like scientists have been working for years to discover which airport is the biggest airport. like there are hieroglyphics written on a cave somewhere and archaeologists have been trying to decipher them in order to determine whether miami is one of the bigger airports "the symbols are a plane, a plus sign - [ laughter ]
12:46 am
and a retiree who lives in palm beach. what could it mean?" [ light laughter ] trump then defended himself against accusations that he was using the presidency to enrich himself by lying about the fact that he has no relationship with his businesses, and weirdly complaining about a deal president obama made with netflix after he left office >> i don't run my business i actually put all the stuff in trusts they run -- and i didn't have to do that but -- under no obligation to do it. you know, i don't know if you know it, george washington -- he ran his business simultaneously while he was president many other presidents -- there weren't too many really rich presidents but there were a few. they ran their business. hey. obama made a deal for a book is that running a business i'm sure he didn't even discuss it while he was president, yeah. he has a deal with netflix when did they start talking about that >> seth: i'm sorry you think obama was cutting secret deals with netflix during his presidency [ light laughter ] and we just never heard about it you're the one who's constantly talking about your golf courses. i never once heard obama end a press conference by saying, "and
12:47 am
by the way, if you like what you heard today -- [ laughter ] -- check out my new standup special on netflix it's called 'barack the house.'" [ laughter and applause then - then trump tried a different argument he defended himself by claiming previous presidents also ran their businesses while they were in office. >> other presidents, if you look, other presidents were wealthy. not huge wealth. george washington was actually considered a very, very rich man at the time. but they ran their businesses. george washington, they say had two desks. he had a presidential desk and a business desk. >> seth: oh, is that what they say? are these also the same people who say miami is the biggest airport? [ laughter ] what business was washington supposedly running on the side, anyway "many people don't know this, but george washington had a business where he gave private boat tours of the delaware river. [ laughter ] and on one phone he'd be like, 'uh, the british are coming. and then he'd be like, 'we'd love to have your party on our
12:48 am
boat.' [ laughter and applause yeah, bring chips and stuff. you might remember that this all started on thursday when trump's acting chief of staff mick mulvaney announced out of nowhere that trump had awarded a big contract to host a major international summit to himself. >> we're going to announce today that we're going to do the 46th g7 summit on june 10th through june 12th at the trump national doral facility in miami, florida there's a long list of the accommodations on site that the -- that the ballrooms, bilateral rooms, a number of rooms, the photo ops, the support hotels that are there, the proximity to cities and airports, helicopter landing zones, medical facilities, et cetera >> seth: not only did he just brazenly announce that the president would enrich himself by hosting an official event at his own golf course, but then he did an infomercial for it. [ light laughter ] there are ballrooms, medical facilities, helicopter landings. and if you book for halloween weekend, you'll even meet our creepy siblings. [ laughter and applause
12:49 am
now mulvaney -- mulvaney and trump also insisted the event wouldn't actually benefit trump, because they would do it "at cost," or even for free. but this claim that trump would do it at cost was obviously a sham, because as we know from previous events at trump resorts, that's not how it works. for example, at previous events at trump properties, taxpayers have paid $546 a night for hotel rooms at mar-a-lago and $1,000 for liquor that white house staffers drank in one sitting. the only way spending $1,000 for liquor in one sitting makes sense is if you are a white house staffer. [ laughter ] "the other day he called the fbi, because he couldn't find his remote control [ laughter ] we're all going to die in jail." [ laughter ] and also, i'm sorry, but if taxpayers are going to spend 1,000 bucks on booze, then they should get to drink the booze themselves, especially when you have to deal with this president. in fact, every trump tweet should come with an option to retweet, like, or send me a bottle of whiskey. [ laughter and applause so after the outcry, trump
12:50 am
rescinded the decision on twitter. and then mulvaney had to go on the sunday shows to explain why trump was so wounded by all the backlash >> he was honestly surprised at the level of pushback. at the end of the day, you know, he still considers himself to be in the hospitality business. >> seth: okay, first of all, he's not in the hospitality business he's the president second, trump was never in the hospitality business hospitality is when you show warmth and compassion to guests and strangers. trump was in the ruthless real estate ass[ bleep ] who stands like a baboon on his hind legs business [ laughter and applause but this is such -- this is such a key confession from mulvaney, because it explains so much. trump still sees himself as the corrupt real estate mogul and reality star who always got away with whatever he wanted, rather than a government official who's bound to the rule of law that's the trump we saw in that infamous phone call with the president of ukraine and during his press conference on thursday, mulvaney literally admitted that they held up the aid to ukraine as part of a quid pro quo to investigate the democrats. >> did he also mention to me in
12:51 am
the past the corruption related to the dnc server? absolutely no question about that but that's it. and that's why we held up the money. now there was a report - >> so -- so the demand for an investigation into the democrats was part of the reason that he ordered -- >> it was -- >> -- to withhold funding to ukraine? >> the look back to what happened in 2016 certainly was part of the thing that he was worried about in corruption with that nation. and that is absolutely appropriate. >> withholding the funding >> yeah. >> but to be clear, what you described is a quid pro quo. it is, funding will not flow unless the investigation into the democratic server happened as well. >> we do -- we do that all the time with foreign policy [ laughter ] >> seth: you do? [ laughter ] so not only did he admit it, he said this isn't even the only time they've done it in fact, many people don't know this, but washington had two desks. one for business, and one for crimes [ light laughter ] mulvaney then got even more brazen, openly bragging about the scheme and saying this >> i have news for everybody get over it.
12:52 am
there's going to be political influence in foreign policy. >> seth: "get over it? i'm sorry. but you don't get to talk about an illegal quid pro quo that's at the center of an impeachment inquiry like you're a cartoon mom on a funny t-shirt "5:00 is wine o'clock. and if you don't like it, you can build a bridge and get over it." [ laughter ] mulvaney continued to argue that the president was allowed to do whatever he wants with foreign policy and allowed to use whoever he wants to do it like his personal lawyer, rudy giuliani, who is reportedly under criminal investigation >> do you believe that rudy giuliani's role as an outside adviser to the president is problematic >> that's the president's call the president gets to set foreign policy and he gets to choose who to do so, as long as it doesn't violate any law. >> seth: okay, but he probably did. [ light laughter ] i mean, two of rudy's associates who helped him dig up dirt in ukraine have already been arrested i mean, remember these two halloween decorations? [ laughter ] lev and igor are their real names. i mean, the guys who look like they just got arrested for huffing bowling alley shoe spray. [ light laughter ] the mobster versions of bill and ted.
12:53 am
they've been in multiple photos with rudy, trump and mike pence. and you can't forget them, because they look like they should be hanging out with rocky and mugsy. [ laughter ] so now mulvaney's confession, which comes after trump's own confession, let's remember, has left the rest of the administration struggling with how to respond yesterday, secretary of state mike pompeo, who's also implicated in this whole scheme, was asked about mulvaney's comments on abc. and you can see his brain short circuit in real time >> what i'm asking is would it be appropriate to condition - >> george, i'm not going to get into hypotheticals and secondary things based on what someone else has said. george, you would have never done it when you were the spokesman. i'm not gonna do it here today >> well, except it's not a hypothetical we saw the chief of staff, the -- >> it is, george you just said "if --" george, you just said, "if this happened." that is by definition a hypothetical >> the chief of staff said it did. [ laughter ] >> george -- you asked me if this happened. it's a hypothetical. >> seth: wow, normally when someone takes that long to answer a question on tv, a red "x" pops up on screen. [ laughter ] top five answers on the board.
12:54 am
name a country the president has colluded with. [ laughter ] [ buzzer ] [ applause ] i'm sorry. the answer we were looking for is ukraine ukraine. [ light laughter ] things are moving very fast for trump and his henchmen and that's because the impeachment inquiry has finally provided a political process to hold them accountable. i don't know if any of these guys will ever be arrested but if they are i hope the cops who do it say -- >> i'm the one that did the capturing. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ♪ we'll be right back with mariska hargitay, everybody. [ cheers and applause ♪ >> announcer: for more of seth's "closer looks," be sure to subscribe to "late night" on youtube.
