goodnight, everybody thank you. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> announcer: tonight on "late night with seth meyers chat and music from lorde, seth and lorde go day drinking an all-new "closer look, featuring the 8g band with taku hirano. and now, seth meyers >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers, and this is "late night. we hope you're all doing well tonight. let's get to the news. former president trump's friend and chair of his 2017 inaugural fund, tom barrack, was arrested yesterday on charges of violating foreign lobbying laws,
obstructing justice and making false statements, as well as one count of impersonating an astronaut. that's right another of trump's friends was arrested yesterday okay it's no longer news when a friend of trump's is arrested. the only possibly interesting thing, now, is what for? "regicide. i didn't see that coming." the white house reportedly held high-level discussions recently with fox news over its coronavirus vaccine coverage yeah, well, good luck with that. you might be able to talk some sense into fox and friends or bret baier but once fox news after dark starts, it's the wild west tucker carlson will tell you the vaccines are dangerous while getting the vaccine. the pentagon's inspector general announced plans, this week, to review procedures to keep the so-called nuclear football secure during a crisis in the event that it is lost or stolen, or ends up in the wrong mouth. "major, drop it! it's not a toy i'll talk to him
i'll talk to him." [ light laughter ] a bipartisan group of senators working on finalizing the infrastructure framework reportedly met, last night, over tacos and wine and i'm not sure there's a better metaphor for the state of bipartisanship in washington than having wine with your tacos. what happened, the republicans filibustered the margaritas? tampa bay buccaneers' star quarterback, tom brady, visited the white house yesterday, to celebrate the team's super bowl win and apparently brought jokes. >> not a lot of people, you know, think that we could have won and, in fact, i think about 40 percent of the people still don't think we won >> i understand that [ laughter ] >> you understand that, mr. president? >> oh, trump's not going to like that he loved you dude, but i say lean into it "hey, what's the difference between football and donald trump football's got a fourth quarter. the man's broke. what else? what else? it's hard doing them standing.
[ laughter ] in a recent interview, a top aide to president biden said that engaging with former-president trump is like, quote, wrestling with an alligator. and then again, at biden's age, putting on a sweater is like wrestling with an alligator. [ light laughter ] and finally, amid growing concerns of contracting coronavirus in tokyo's olympic village, the u.s. women's gymnastics team, yesterday, decided to move into a hotel and get this, in addition to everything else she can do, simone biles figured out how to print something in the business center in five minutes and that was the monologue we've got a great show for you tonight. she's a grammy-winning singer, songwriter and one of the coolest people ever. lorde will be here she'll be sitting right here on this chair to chat and we will also -- and she will also, i will not be performing i requested and got shot down by lorde. she will be performing a song from her new album, "solar power," which is out august 20th. plus, we will debut our drunken adventure, "day drinking with lorde and seth." it's a really good one
but before we get to all that, yet another associate of former president trump has been arrested this time, it was the former committee, tom barrack, who is accused of illegally using his connections and access to trump to lobby on behalf of a foreign government for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ >> seth: there's a lot going on in the world right now delta variant, climate disaster, wealth hoarding, tax dodging tech billionaires who exploit their workers racing to space, and cowboy hats like data playing sheriff on the holodeck. second data ref in a week. is next generation, our new mash but i'd like to start with perhaps the most trivial and least consequential development in the news. disney unveiling its new joe biden animatronic for the hall of presidents look at that joe biden was basically made to be in the hall of presidents you can't tell the difference between the real biden and the animatronic biden. in fact, given how much of a
wild card human biden can be, i'm betting his aides would love to have the animatronic on stand-by for town halls. "oh god, oh, he's telling the corn pops story again. bring in the robot oh, phew oh now, the robot's telling the corn pop story oh, wait okay, i can actually follow it i can follow when the robot does it." and i have to say, i enjoy the fact that disney made a realistic biden robot with a presidential demeanor and a normal-human facial expression, as opposed to the trump animatronic, which has the expression of someone who just walked in on their parents having sex i mean, this looks like one of the bodies preserved in ash at pompeii. "vesuvius is never going to blow yoinks." looks like han solo frozen in carbonite. also, who signed off on making franklin pierce look exactly like me? you gave me one of the worst presidents i grew up in new hampshire, so i actually know some stuff about franklin pierce. he was also from new hampshire
and nothing else [ laughter ] i remember in 4th grade, they told us that new hampshire news, we lost our [ bleep ]. and then, it was on to james buchanan look, maybe, one of the reasons -- [ [ la so surprised, is it keeps finding out more about just how corrupt the campaign and presidency of the man he was based on were. every day, it seems like we get new details about alleged crimes involving trump's cabinet officials, or his business associates or his friends. some of them are investigations we didn't even know about. it's like a game of "clue," where every answer is correct. "was it professor plum in the ball room, with the dagger it was how about ms. scarlet in the kitchen, with the lead pipe. her too. okay, and what about rudy in the billiard room with the candlestick to the nuts? yep, every time. for example, we learned this week that an inspector general found that trump commerce secretary, wilbur ross, lied to congress about the census, and
presented those findings to the trump justice department but trump's doj declined to prosecute him, and when ross heard he wasn't getting prosecuted, i'm guessing he celebrated by cracking open a beer and a can of soup i mean, look at him. it looks like the poster for a movie called "retirement frat. "wilbur, did you replace the oxygen tanks with helium, again? >> "i'll never tell, dude. [ laughter ] >> seth: that is -- what you just saw is 100 percent my fault. [ laughter ] and then, there's trump's former campaign chairman, paul manafort. a week ago, we found out that a banker who arranged millions in loans to manafort was found guilty of trying to use those loans to secure a job in the trump campaign and administration >> it took a federal jury less than two hours to reach a guilty verdict in the case of former federal savings bank executive, stephen calk he was accused of pushing risky loans through for former donald trump campaign manager, paul manafort, in exchange for a high-level position in the administration
calk got manafort $16 million worth of loans from the bank, despite concerns from board members over their high levels of risk. manafort then recommended calk for an open under secretary of the army position. >> look, i'm sure this sort of [ bleep ] happens all the time in d.c., and more people should be prosecuted for it but my god, trump and his cronies were so brazen about it. the trump operation was such a toxic criminal enterprise that even people who are just tangentially related to him are getting thrown in jail now at this point, i wouldn't be surprised if they get his disney robot for using a shell company to dodge taxes "don't look surprised. you know what you did. calk apparently got a job on the trump campaign by loaning manafort millions, despite his checkered financial past and when trump won, he actually wrote down a list of jobs he would want in a trump administration >> stephen calk was convicted for giving paul manafort $16 million in questionable bank loans in 2016 and 2017.
after calk's first multimillion-dollar loan to manafort, manafort put him on the trump campaign's economic advisory council prosecutors said stephen calk repeatedly ignored financial red flags in manafort's loan applications, because he desperately wanted to be secretary of the army and thought that's how he could get it he listed, in ranked order, his favorite, quote, "prospective roles, prospective rules" in the new administration his number one choice was secretary of the army. if not that, he'd take, you know, secretary of commerce, deputy secretary of the treasury, 18 preferred ambassadorships. everything, from the uk, to the vatican, to singapore. >> seth: i guess, if you're the kind of guy who ignores red flags, you're also the kind of guy who writes down a list of the quos you would like in return for your quids. "yeah, send a copy of this to manafort, trump, and the fbi is that dumb?" also, total aside here, but if you are a corrupt banker, paying for a job in the administration, why would you want secretary of the army over ambassador to the vatican? i mean, the secretary of the army has actual stuff to do.
i'm pretty sure the ambassador to the vatican just gets to hang out in rome, drinking aperol spritzes, and dodging vespas on cobblestone streets. every now and then, you run into the pope and he says, "i'm from argentina. i don't talk like this." of course, calk wasn't the only trump goon to write down incriminating material when prosecutors indicted trump organization's cfo allen weisselberg for alleged tax fraud earlier this month, it turned out, they kept internal spreadsheets detailing the scheme for example, according to the indictment, weisselberg caused the trump corporation to issue corporate checks made payable to a trump organization employee, who cashed the checks and received cash. the cash was given to weisselberg for his personal use. the trump corporation booked this cash as holiday entertainment, but maintained internal spreadsheets showing the cash to be part ofention the dead giveaway there is that trump would ne he would sit there with eric and don jr. and watch the grinch on tv "why can't you idiots be more like this guy? then yesterday, we got news
about the arrest of, yet another long-time trump associate, tom barrack who was an adviser to trump's campaign and the chair of his inaugural committee, which incidentally, is also under investigation, unrelated to these new charges >> tom barrack, the chairman of trump's 2017 inaugural committee has been arrested on a host of charges, including illegally lobbying for the united arab emirates, obstructing justice, and making "the washington post" reports federal prosecutors say barrack capitalized on his friendship, with, and access to trump and other high-ranking government officials, and his relationship with u.s. journalists to advance the policy goals of a foreign government without disclosing their true alliances >> seth: so one of trump's closest confidants and advisers was secretly using his access and connection to trump to lobby the campaign and the administration as an unregistered agent of a foreign government that means various trump associates were either lobbying for or connected to ukraine, russia, turkey, qatar, and the world showcase of corruption
this is supposed to be the america first campaign the new, working-class gop instead, it was all a bunch of millionaire lobbyists, bankers, consultants, and private equity titans working for foreign countries. the so-called america first campaign was a bigger scam than subway tuna. i'm not saying it's not tuna, all i know is last week, i found a wishbone in my foot long, and then, i pulled it apart and wished for real tuna now, we already knew part of this story, thanks to investigation by the house oversight committee during the trump presidency, which found that barrack had submitted drafts of a 2016 america first energy speech to the uae for edits. he took a speech with america first in the title and submitted it to a foreign government for approval that's like finding out the cop who did the d.a.r.e presentation at your high school snorted some fat rails off a cafeteria tray to get hyped up. "who is ready to learn about how bad drugs are? wait, sorry, my friend pablo escobar did a rewrite on that who is ready to find out how bad drugs aren't?" and according to the indictment released yesterday, barrack, a longtime trump friend used that friendship to get language
inserted into the then-candidate's energy speech in 2016 about the importance of working with our gulf allies at the behest of emirati officials. so, thanks to barrack, the uae basically hired trump to do a cameo for them "uae, it's donald trump, and i hear you have a birthday coming up." but barrack succeeded, as you can see from this clip of the speech in 2016, which was supposed to be about american energy independence and the so-called america first energy policy weirdly, there was a line out of nowhere where trump seemed to backtrack and say, actually, we'll keep buying oil from gulf states like the uae. >> we will become and stay totally independent of any need to import energy from the opec cartel or any nations hostile to our interests. anybody hostile to our interests, believe me, we don't deal with 'em. we'll handle 'em just fine just fine. [ cheers and applause and by the way, there are plenty of them out there that are hostile to our interests
at the same time, we'll work with our gulf allies to develop a positive- energy relationship as part of our antiterrorism strategy >> seth: he makes it so easy for prosecutors. you can literally see the moment where he riffs off the cuff and then goes back to the line barrack wrote for him. he totally contradicts himself "those gulf states, they hate us, don't they folks mark my words, we will never work with them, ever those gulf states can kiss my ass. at the same time, we will work with our gulf allies, because they love us and we love them and remember, they do have a birthday coming up." the trump campaign and presidency were one big criminal enterprise, a toxic cesspool of corruption and self-enrichment and clearly, there's still so much more we need to find out, among many other things, it proves, once again, that the new supposedly populous working class american first republican party is a total scam. in reality, it's just a bunch of wealthy oligarchs conning voters while they serve foreign interests and rake in millions every time we find out about yet another trump corruption scheme,

home you were in new zealand. >> mm-hh >> seth: how is it transitioning back to a place like new york city after -- which, i, obviously, is a another wonderful place to be, but new zealand, very different than new york city >> very different. i would say, the main thing i observed between the difference between new zealand and america, apart from the obvious, sort of, covid protocols and such every food at the grocery store is -- it's a hotdog, but it's almonds. b it's almonds. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> like, it's cream cheese, but it's almonds like everything is made of a nut. >> seth: yeah. do you -- do you know what i mean we don't really -- >> seth: we're very proud of that >> we don't have the nut technology you haven't brought -- you haven't brought nuts into every and all cuisines >> we have, like, maybe a nut milk >> seth: okay. >> but -- but the, you know, full sundae. >> seth: oh, yeah, the almonds have taken over. you know, the ice cream. the -- the almonds have taken over that's the main thing. >> seth: that's -- i think that when -- if you asked anyone what is the biggest difference between new york and new zealand, you're the only one who would pick that answer >> the nuts, yeah. >> seth: you also went to antarctica >> i did >> seth: that -- now, is that something you'd always wanted to do >> always, since i was a kid >> seth: okay. >> i was a total history buff. completely obsessed. i had always wanted to go, and i got the chance to do it. it's really difficult to get
you have to get a million shots. >> seth: okay. >> there has to be, like, nothing physically wrong with you, because there's not much, kind of, medical stuff down there. it's a whole process, but it was amazing. it was like a pilgrimage, you know >> seth: i think it's safe to say it's freezing, freezing cold >> it's so cold. >> seth: okay. >> so cold and it's like the height of summer you know, it's as warm as it gets, and it's freezing. >> seth: but it's also -- this, obviously, also makes sense, but i felt dumb not realizing until i read it. it's incredibly sunny. >> it's sunny all day. the sun does not go down yeah it's -- it messes with your head for sure >> seth: 'cause i think when you see an album called "solar power," you start thinking about, "oh, you wrote it on the beach. [ laughter ] and, obviously, you spent a fair amount of time on the beach, but you were also -- a little bit of the inspiration came from antarctica >> yeah. i guess, just -- like, i -- you know, the album is very much about nature and to go there and experience nature in this very raw form was really inspiring for me >> seth: last time you were here, which was way back, was right before your second album and we talked a little bit about when you have, you know, an
incredibly popular debut album you have to follow it up with a sophomore album which, again, was very popular do you feel less pressure going to a third album or as an artist, is it just going to be each time out? >> you know, i think last time i was so nervous -- i think everyone's nervous before their second album but it went quite well and i think i, sort of, could have done anything i wanted. and this one, i felt like i just made for my peers to, like, amuse other musicians or -- you know, i was like, "let's just flex and do something that will make this musician text me like, 'i see what you did there.'" [ laughter ] >> seth: that's really nice. >> it was fun. >> seth: i think that's a good way of going about it. >> yeah. you also worked with jack antonoff again. >> i did >> seth: this is someone who, i imagine, you have a very intensely close relationship, even though a lot of it was happening over zoom? >> yeah, we -- we managed to not write any songs on zoom, which was great. >> seth: oh, that's great. >> 'cause i was dreading that
part of it we facetimed a lot and just, sort of, like waited till we could be together again. you know, he and i have known each other for years, and we knew it would happen eventually, but it was weird we just, sort of, like locked down in the studio in new york no one else could come into the room and we had the windows open, doors open, the whole time so, you can, kind of, hear like sirens in west village [ light laughter ] you know, it's very -- >> seth: that's fantastic. um, first of all, i want to say thank you so much. i am so glad you are doing a song this is really a hat trick of lorde. >> yeah. >> seth: because we got to talk to you we're going to get music from you. >> it's my night and when we come back, we're going to watch day drinking together, so do not go anywhere. stick around ♪ now, we all know progressive offers 24/7 protection, but we also bundle outdoor vehicles with home and auto to help people save more!
