tax, while senate republicans introduced a new bill proposing you can claim your yacht as a dependent. [ laughter ] in a recent interview, singer olivia rodrigo said that when she went to the white house earlier this year, president biden gave her a pair of sunglasses, m&ms, and a shoehorn with the presidential seal, which is definitely just some stuff that was on his desk when she showed up. [ laughter ] "you -- you wear shoes, right? [ light laughter ] the house voted today on the protect older job applicants act of 2021, i assume to get ready for the 2024 election. [ laughter ] president biden today unveiled a revised framework for his domestic spending plan, which includes more than $555 billion for clean energy even joe manchin says he supports that $400 billion he only hopes that they'll find responsible way to use that $310 billion [ light laughter ] after all, $120 billion is a lot of money, and nobody wants to waste that $42 billion [ light laughter ] he then added, "hey, how about zero?"
12:39 am
[ laughter ] president biden met today with house democrats to discuss his healthcare spending proposal in the infrastructure bill, which is now down to a 30-day trial for webmd plus, and they're gonna paint some tunnels on a rock, like wile e. coyote. [ laughter ] with more and more policies being cut from president biden's build back better spending bill, including guaranteed paid leave, tax hikes on the wealthy, and several other policies that the president promised, many are wondering what's actually left in the bill. so we thought we'd give you a quick rundown of what's actually left in build back better. ♪ this song again?

[ laughter ]

[ laughter ] universal wealth care. [ light laughter ] one extra digit in each american's social security number guaranteed pre-k for wacky adult children whose hotel magnate fathers paid their way through elementary and high school, but now would like to prove themselves as competent functioning adults, in order to take over the family business. [ laughter ] you can use the bathroom if you asked nicely everyone is eligible to receive $1 million from a billionaire, in exchange for just one night with your wife [ light laughter ] one free month of tubi [ laughter ] they'll throw a traffic cone next to the pothole on your street if you quit whining about it and finally, a new houseboat for joe manchin. this has been "what actually is left in build back better.
12:41 am
[ cheers and applause ahead of president biden's meeting with pope francis, white house press secretary jen psaki said yesterday that she does not expect the two to discuss abortion wow. so they're keeping it. [ laughter ] according to a new survey, 19% of americans said they rely on their body's internal clock to wake them up at a certain time oh, yeah, there's a term for those people what is it again oh, yeah, late [ laughter ] apple released an iphone update this week that allows users to add their coronavirus vaccine card to the wallet app and guess what, it doesn't fit there either [ laughter ] and finally, five men in new york were charged yesterday with operating a narcotics ring that allegedly smuggled millions of dollars worth of cocaine hidden in children's lunch boxes. still healthier than lunchables.
12:42 am
[ laughter ] and that was the monologue, everybody. we got a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause you know her from "the newsroom" and "the daily show. she's currently starring in "violet," which is in theaters tomorrow and on-demand next week olivia munn will be here [ cheers and applause he's a very funny comedian you know from "the daily show. he's got a great new stand-up special that premieres tomorrow night on comedy spent -- central, excuse me roy wood jr. is going to join us here in studio [ cheers and applause and you have probably heard of blumhouse productions and blumfest their latest is "halloween kills. and the guy behind it all is here tonight my friend, producer jason blum will also be here in studio. [ cheers and applause i can't wait for you all to meet him. but before we get to all that, after slogging through months of painful negotiations over their domestic agenda, democratic leaders and president biden claimed today that they've reached a deal on a framework for a massive bill to expand the social safety net. but it's still not clear if there are enough votes for the plan for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause
12:43 am
>> seth: to give you an idea of how things are going in congress right now here's a photo utah senator mitt romney posted today of himself dressed up as "ted lasso," serving biscuits to democratic senator kyrsten sinema [ light laughter ] man, you know you're unpopular when you can single handedly ruin one of america's favorite tv shows [ light laughter ] this is like when rudy giuliani ran out of the white house bathroom with his pants around his ankles, george costanza style. [ laughter ] or like when nixon showed up to a press conference dressed as radar o'reilly the "m.a.s.h." references are back [ light laughter ] but this just proves, once again, that we need roy kent in congress, because that picture makes me want to [ bleep ] - >> puke. [ laughter ] >> seth: now, even if you've only been paying cursory attention to the news lately, you've probably heard the democratic negotiations over their massive infrastructure and social safety net bills have been -- and this is the exact political science term originally coined by historian doris kearns goodwin in her prize-winning study of power and influence in the 19th century -- a [ bleep ]-covered
12:44 am
ass-over-tea-kettle cluster [ bleep ]. [ laughter ] that's from the x-rated version of her famous book, "team of mother [ bleep ] rivals. [ laughter ] by the way, that is the most high-minded joke you'll hear tonight that also has three bleeps in it [ laughter ] the process has been a brutal slog, thanks almost entirely to two centrist democrats, joe manchin and kyrsten sinema, who decided to hold the bill hostage and turn it into a public melodrama to feed their own egos and to protect their corporate patrons. sinema has raked in money from wall street and big pharma and manchin has been called the king maker by fossil fuel lobbyists, and personally profits from the coal industry in his state and yet manchin frequently does a "woe is me" routine for reporters. like earlier this week, when he seemed to agree that life might be easier for him if he were a republican >> have you ever thought life would be easier for you if you shifted to being a republican? and somebody has said recently that, you know, people have approached you about doing that. >> every day >> every day so, um - >> well, either that or just ch -- here's the -- i -- i keep asking - >> wouldn't life be easier for you to do that >> oh, it would be much easier my goodness. >> are you thinking of doing - >> but is that the purpose of
12:45 am
being involved in public service, because it's easy >> are you thinking about doing it >> no. i've never -- i -- i never thought from this -- i'm -- what i'm telling you now is who i am. do you think by having a "d," or an "i" or an "r" is going to change who i am? i don't think the rs will be any more happier with me than the ds are right now. [ light laughter ] okay i mean, that's about as blunt as i can put it so, i don't know where in the hell i belong. >> seth: man, this adaptation of "dear evan hansen" sucks [ laughter ] should never have let someone that old play a high schooler. but seriously, is this a musical? are you about to break out into song he looks like he should be sitting next to a fake window, looking at a cardboard cutout of the moon ♪ i have d next to my nam but i'm not sure that i'm the sam where do i belong ♪ [ light laughter ] i think there was seriously one solitary clap. [ laughter ] but, like, it was like a reverse clap it was this. [ laughter ] this is all just a self-aggrandizing shtick from
12:46 am
two senators who want to be seen as straight shooting, middle of the road dealmakers, but who are, in reality, just protecting their interests of the corporate patrons and themselves i mean, manchin literally has a stake in a family-owned coal company and a so-called houseboat named almost heaven, where he was confronted recently by activists who literally kayaked there to ask him questions. [ light laughter ] i'm sorry, but that's not a houseboat. that's a yacht you know how i know? houseboats don't have cursive on 'em. [ laughter ] a houseboat's something a grizzled, retired cop played by clint eastwood or tommy lee jones lives on in a movie where a young rookie comes to him asking for help catching the alphabet killer. "i told you, i'm not on the force anymore. "but you're the only one who's come close to catching him." "didn't you hear me, damn it i'm not a cop anymore. [ light laughter ] hell, i'm not even a man after janice left me [ laughter ] i don't know where the hell i belong." ♪ where do i belong ♪ [ applause ] manchin has been the key foe of budget chairman bernie sanders, who's been pushing for the full
12:47 am
package that originally included, among other things, drug pricing reform, tuition-free community college, paid family and medical leave, medicare benefits for hearing, vision, and dental, and significant climate provisions to help stave off, you know, planetary collapse although, i guess you're not too worried about rising sea levels when your house is also a boat [ laughter ] publicly, in front of the cameras, manchin has very much tried to make it look like he's negotiating in good faith with bernie like when he wandered over to pose for pictures with bernie in the capitol parking lot before they each got into their cars. >> here, get a picture you want to get a picture of us? >> you're gonna get in here. >> get a picture of us, huh? we're talking. >> all right we're talking. >> you're gonna have a resolution by the end of the week, it sounds like >> we're talking >> we're talking we're gonna make some progress >> senator sanders, you prepared to make some deep cuts to climate change and other things like that? >> all right, guys, just watch the vehicle please come on out. that vehicle is gonna come out >> seth: my favorite part of the clip is at the end when manchin slides comfortably into a giant pick-up, and bernie squeezes into what i can only assume is the smallest compact car on the market that came pre-installed with three carpoolers.
12:48 am
"no radio, no chitchat, just off to work and home again." [ laughter ] and it is very on brand that bernie is much less enthusiastic than manchin for a bull[ bleep ] photo op manchin's got the energy of a used car salesman shooting his own commercial, and bernie's having none of it. "yep sure, we're talking. and, as you know, famously, talking is my favorite thing to do [ light laughter ] i just love to sit around and waste time making small talk with guys who live on houseboats why don't we exchange phone numbers, so you can call me and we can stay up until 3:00 a.m. talking about our hopes and dreams, what we're going to wear to prom. [ laughter ] and then, maybe after that, we can find some time to make some matching friendship bracelets. [ laughter ] [ applause ] but in private, manchin's been munch more hostile to bernie's agenda, an agenda president biden himself mind you, has said he was fully behind. axios reported last week that manchin threatened in a meeting with bernie and other democrats to kill both the bigger social safety net bill and a bipartisan infrastructure bill. manchin and sanders squabbled behind closed doors, with manchin using a raised fist
12:49 am
goose egg to tell his colleague he can live without any of the president's social spending plan according to one senator in the room, joe said, "i'm comfortable with nothing." bernie said, "we need to do $3.5 trillion. manchin said, "i'm comfortable with zero," forming a zero with his thumb and index finger all right, first of all, never get into a hand gesture battle with bernie sanders. the man uses his index fingers the way ninjas use throwing stars. remember the debate? he never had to say a word he just raised that index finger while someone else was talking it would be like watching the rock pick up his microphone. [ laughter ] but say all you want about manchin, and clearly, we've said a lot. at least he's a democrat from west virginia, where trump won by almost 40 points. sinema, on the other hand, is from arizona, a state joe biden won, and where her poll numbers among democrats have collapsed thanks to her obstructionism and, unlike manchin, she never even talks to the press or to voters, for that matter. she holds private fundraisers and meetings with lobbyists, but then when constituents and reporters try to get answers out of her, this happens >> i know you're getting dozens of lobbyists and talking with corporate donors about the package. >> yeah -- that's obviously -- >> how many times will you meet with constituents?
12:50 am
>> yeah. >> today well - >> yes >> what do you say to progressives -- progressives that are frustrated that they don't know where you are >> i'm in the senate >> there are progressives within the senate that are frustrated that they don't know where you are, either. >> i'm like, literally right here at the elevator >> any comment on your stance on anything, senator? >> seth: man, reporters are getting desperate. they're starting to sound like a family trapped in an escape room "puzzle master, can you give us a clue anything we've been here for three days." [ laughter ] sinema blocked everything, from increased taxes on the wealthy, to drug pricing reforms, some of the most popular components of the bill and in the process, she and manchin have turned an entire negotiation into a nightmare slog to the point where even reporters and correspondents are having trouble keeping up with what's in the bill and what's not. >> likely in, universal pre-k, a one-year extension of the child tax credit, childcare center funding, pell grant increases, some unspecified climate change funding and an elder care provision. now, here's what might be out. free community college
12:51 am
this was very important to progressives expanded medicare coverage that includes dental, vision and hearing coverage the clean electricity performance program. that is a major climate initiative and tax hikes on corporations and high earners what's still under discussion? well, an $800 medicare dental voucher program, four weeks of federal paid family leave, expansions in red states that haven't expanded it already, and to pay for it, you've heard a lot about this, a billionaire wealth tax so it's a lot to cover >> seth: out, mom jeans. in, hip huggers. out, the kardashians in, the jenners. [ light laughter ] this process has been so chaotic they had to break out the big board. next thing you know, they're going to run steve kornacki out there to do math on the fly while they feed him a steady diet of paper and sharpie. [ light laughter ] now, the list of what's in includes a lot of great, transformative stuff, like the child tax credit, universal pre-k, and some major climate stuff, among other things. but the list of what's out is infuriating.
12:52 am
for one thing, how can anyone be against drug pricing reform or free community college or paid family leave we're one of only a small handful of countries that doesn't have it. it's insane. everyone deserves the right to be at home with their families and children and besides, in my experience, the more time you spend with your kids, the more desperate you are to go back to work [ laughter ] after a week of lockdown with my family, i called up nbc and said, "we need to do the show in the attic. [ laughter ] by the way, still can't believe we lost the best show in an attic emmy to bbc's period drama, "upstairs: even more upstairs." [ laughter ] and that's a perfect example of the kind of high effort, low return joke we learned to tell when doing a show in an attic. [ laughter ] that joke would have killed in the attic. [ laughter ] the audience would have been buzzing, because the audience were wasps [ laughter ] but after all the obstructionism and hostage taking and painful cuts, today democrats claimed they had a tentative deal on a framework for a bill and biden himself went to the hill to tout it, claiming everyone was on board.
12:53 am
>> mr. president, what's your message to address those who don't trust manchin and sinema >> it's a good day >> do you think you have enough of a framework to get progressives >> yes >> is bernie sanders on board, sir? >> everybody's on -- you're on board, aren't you? >> seth: it's not a good sign when biden's talking like an amtrak conductor who dozed off "hey, man, shouldn't you be saying 'all aboard'? "what? i'm on board, you're on board, we're all on board, right? [ light laughter ] so there you go, the process was painful. the cuts were brutal but at least now, finally, democrats have a deal everyone can get behind, right? >> we heard from senator dick durbin, a short time ago, after the meeting started. he said, "i wish i could say yes, but there's a great deal of uncertainty within the caucus. he was asked if he's confident all 50 democrats in the senate are on board he couldn't say yes. >> seth: what? then what the hell was this announcement all about don't tout the deal unless the deal is done don't be the dad that says, "who wants to go to disneyland? and then, after the kids scream "yes," go online to see if
12:54 am
tickets are available. "okay, just remember kids, we have very inflexible dates, so fingers crossed. [ laughter ] oh, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot. [ laughter ] who wants to go to busch gardens? stop hitting me! i am your father [ light laughter ] don't you throw that lego brick at me. [ laughter ] the stakes for this bill cannot be overstated. democrats have to deliver on their promises, boost the economy, give voters a reason to keep them in office. otherwise the people who could very well power in 2022 and 2024, are the gop cult of authoritarian weirdos, leaving the rest of us to say -- >> i don't know where in the hell i belong.

1:00 am
confusing advice as well, but i'm doing really good. >> seth: do you find -- i found one of the most confusing things is people would suggest specific baby gear to you that was important to have. and the brand names were impossible to keep separate in my head. >> that's 100% true. i mean, there's this one item called the snoo that people bring up a lot and then, i'm not -- and i'm not quite sure, like i know it's one that rocks the baby. then, there's one that like docks the baby and then there's another one that like props the baby and they're all like -- you're right. they're all named the same thing, and i have no idea what anyone's - and i'm trying to research it. i actually have the -- the thing i have the hardest problem with is i don't know how many things to get you know, like i don't know how many onesies you're supposed to get. i don't know how many bottles you're supposed to get how many diapers you're supposed to have. like, i don't -- people give me a lot of advice but i need real specific - >> seth: i think you only need one onesie i think that's why they're called that. [ laughter ]
1:01 am
i think it's right in the name for you. have you received anything that you would -- i mean, i know it's impossible until you actually have the baby, but is there anything you feel like has been good advice >> yeah, there's so much great advice i honestly -- the one piece of advice that's coming to my head that i would not classify as great, but it's the only i'm thinking of now is, i have a friend of mine who said she has a gift of being able to tell you how tall your baby will be [ laughter ] and, yeah, so i said -- she said "do you want to know how tall your baby will be? so, i said "sure." she said "ok how tall are you?" i said, "i'm 5'5." she goes, "okay. how tall is john?" i said, "he's six feet." she goes "hmm. the baby will be six feet.

[ laughter ] >> no, no. >> seth: promise i'm right stay in touch. >> i think she's talking about a six-foot baby that comes out of me [ laughter ] you know, it just stretches, it just keeps going >> seth: i love talking to you about your mom is she excited about the fact -- i guess this is the second time she's going to be a grandmother? >> yeah, you're right. she is so excited. and she said to me the other day -- she said, "hey, i want to have the baby for two weeks, 15 days. and i said, "yeah, you can come visit whenever you want. she goes, "no, no, i want to have the baby all by myself for two weeks, 15 days." and i said, "you can come and have all the time you want by yourself with the baby." she said "no, i want to bring the baby to oklahoma at my house. all by myself. two weeks, 15 days."
1:03 am
and i said, "why do you want the baby in oklahoma at your house by yourself for two weeks, 15 days? and she said, "because i want to be able to do whatever i want with the baby and the parents can't tell me no." [ laughter ] i'm like, "okay. so, i'll just give you my baby and you can do whatever you want." so she's not going to get the baby for two weeks [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. she gave away way too much of the game in the ask. i also like that -- i like that in her head she thinks she needs two weeks, but just in case its not enough, i might need that 15th day [ laughter ] >> actually, it's a travel day she's added in >> seth: you've got to be careful. i feel like when grandparents take their kids -- their grandkids out, like, they act like they have diplomatic immunity and no rules apply to them and like, they'll bring back the kids, and the kids will be all amped up and you'll be like, "what'd you do?" and they're like, "nothing they had like a coffee and some beef jerky." and you're like, "no." [ laughter ] >> i remember when my -- we had my niece and when she was a baby and my sister had really strict
1:04 am
instructions, like, "i don't want her to have --" she had like a dairy allergy so she was like, "i don't want her to have this or any sugar yet. and then i saw my mom hand her an ice cream cone. and she goes, "shh don't tell the mom." i was like, "this is crazy." like, you're -- what are you doing? like, the mom should make the rules. and -- and so now i remembered that so, clearly, i'm like -- very like - i'm very wary of her >> seth: i think that's a very good place to be so this film, as we tell from the clip -- or hopefully people could tell from the clip -- you play a woman, violet, in this film, who is competing with the voice in her head. the sort of -- the voice that maybe anxiety would put there for us, and a pretty incredible actor playing the voice. >> yeah, that's justin theroux playing that insidious voice in my head, constantly -- you know, telling me -- telling violet how not good enough she is and how, you know, just everything is going to burn to the ground because of her. >> seth: was this part emotionally exhausting to play, to play somebody who's dealing
1:05 am
with these sort of internal anxieties? >> this project was really emotionally exhausting for me. i had actually gone from two independent movies right into this third independent movie back to back to back so i was already so emotionally exhausted. physically exhausted and i -- i mean, i am one of those people that struggles with that internal dialogue that's -- that voice that's always telling me, you know, so many things that just create so much self-doubt and self-hate. i mean, i struggle with that a lot. and i've worked really hard to put that voice into a box. and so then to go on to this film and be doing this role with this voice and then there's justine bateman who directed the film. and she's yelling on the microphone, you know, like, just screaming out all these things to you it was really emotionally draining and it was so exhausting and there was times that i just broke down crying in the middle of a scene, in the scenes where you're not supposed to be crying but it's ok if i cried and i'm crying, i'm breaking down crying and they yell cut
1:06 am
and i'm still crying and i'm just kind of trying to remove myself to collect myself. and then the a.d. comes over and they're like - 'cause it's an independent movie, so time is of the essence, and there's no money. and he's like, "hey, i really need you to, like, stop crying [ laughter ] just get back to the scene." and i was like, "oh, okay. just trying to, like, reckon -- just like bury it deep down like my mom taught me just bury all that stuff and just keep on going [ laughter ] >> seth: see, what's that she can teach your baby when she has her for two weeks, 15 days [ laughter ] just bury her emotions hey, thanks so much for being here, olivia congratulations on the baby. congratulations on the movie [ cheers and applause we'll see you soon >> thank you >> seth: olivia munn, everybody.

1:27 am
years after "blair witch." so that experience was relatively new and i just -- i just saw it and then i screened it with an audience and anyone could have told you, if they bothered to watch it with an audience, the movie was going to work. but everyone had seen it on dvd or on cassette and passed. it was going to home video land and i said to the director, "i really think i can get this into a movie theater. i passed on 'blair witch,' i see the same thing here. it took three years to do, but it really was the birth of our company. so i'm very -- very -- it's a very beloved movie to me >> seth: and you had a dream that if you made money on the movie, you would get the car that you'd always dreamed of having to go to work in. >> correct >> seth: and i'm going to show everybody. i want everybody to imagine what a big hollywood producer wanted. >> this was my dream >> seth: and now i'm gonna show everybody what it is [ laughter ] i should note it says "blumhouse electric" on the side of it. >> and here, i don't know if you can see, it says "residential and commercial."

1:28 am
new york it's only been about 22 years. i'm still doing it and i can't -- one of the things i don't like about los angeles is the traffic and it's such a waste of time. i'm a very, very efficient person so i said if i ever have a hit movie, i'm going to get a minivan, hence the chevy astro which is a very unusual minivan, because almost no minivans have a flat back. they always have bumps for the axle the reason that handymen always drive chevy astros is because the bottom is flat i bought a minivan -- i bought a used chevy astro for ten grand and i paid a stereo guy $25,000. he ripped out the back he put in a comfy chair, a computer, a printer, when you used to have to print boarding passes i used to print boarding passes in that. i still have a van it's a little more upgraded from that but it's my efficient way to tackle and never think about los angeles traffic. >> seth: it's really nice that a kid creepy enough to save fingernails ended up in a white van.
