12:42 am
swamp ghost who haunts weddings, donald trump remains under multiple serious investigations. there is the investigation into his election meddling in atlanta, the investigation of his business in new york, and the congressional investigation of the insurrection he stoked on january 6th. plus, i don't know, like a dozen other investigations i've stopped keeping track of he's probably still got a pending case over the time he left air force 1 parked next to a fire hydrant in time square. [ laughter ] "officer, i was just running in real quick to grab some m&ms from the m&ms store. we love -- we love m&ms. don't we folks we love 'em? [ laughter ] the cocky red one, the nervous orange one, and, of course, the sexy -- the sexy green m&m [ laughter ] women want to be her, and men want to be with her. [ laughter ] i met her backstage in '86 jon bovi concert i said jon bovi, i meant bon jovi [ laughter ] i flubbed it i flubbed it you know, there is one thing we know about the donald, i admit when i made a mistake.
12:43 am
[ laughter ] when i get it wrong, i own up right away [ laughter ] i met her at a bon jovi concert. [ laughter ] and yet, even with those various investigations intensifying, trump is still freely confessing to crimes from past investigations over the weekend, he essentially confessed to obstructing the russian investigation by bragging about the fact that he fired then-fbi director james comey to protect himself >> don't forget, i fired comey had i not fired comey, you might not be talking to me right now about a beautiful book of four years at the white house and we'll see about the future the future is going to be very interesting. but i fired comey, that whole group. and now that group is coming back again i mean, it's not believable. >> seth: he was definitely expecting his interviewer to jump in there with a "good point, sir."
12:44 am
[ laughter ] trump always forgets that even his most fervent supporters sometimes can't follow what he is talking about i also like that trump literally starts a confession by saying, "don't forget. he's like a defendant jumping up in court saying, "whoa, whoa, before you return that murder weapon to evidence, maybe dust it for prints? [ laughter ] trump supporters always want to know why people can't stop talking about his crimes when he can't stop talking about his crimes in fact, trump was so intent on reminding everyone he obstructed justice during the russia investigation that he again came back to it later during the interview out of nowhere >> i was going to say before if i didn't fire comey, they were looking to take down the president of the united states if i didn't fire him -- and some people said, "you made a mistake when you fired comey." [ light laughter ] and now those same people said it was the most incredible, instinctual moves that they've ever seen. 'cause i wouldn't -- i might be here with you, perhaps, we'll be talking about something else
12:45 am
but i don't think i could have survived if i didn't fire him. because it was like a hornet's nest when i fired him, they all went crazy. >> seth: what are you talking about? [ laughter ] even i don't ramble that much to my therapist i'm just kidding i don't have a therapist i have you guys. a therapist -- [ laughter ] a therapist would never -- [ cheers and applause i mean, it's cheaper a therapist would never put up with this many tangents. "i think, seth, it would just be more helpful if we dug into your childhood. "yeah, sure, sure, sure, sure. but what if al pacino had been in 'dune'? [ laughter ] like, what -- what would that even sound like? 'all right, let's go the house of atreides will bring peace to arrakis oh, yeah!' [ light laughter ] i genuinely wonder if -- i genuinely wonder if even trump fans are capable of understanding what he is saying.
12:46 am
or if the stream of consciousness rambling is just a soothing way for them to fall asleep because i will say i would definitely listen to one of those nature sound cds with trump's voice to help me doze off. [ birds chirping ] >> i never understood wind you know, i know windmills very much they're noisy. they kill the birds. you want to see a bird graveyard? go under a windmill some day you'll see more birds than you've ever seen ever in your life [ light laughter ] >> seth: now the congressional investigation into trump and the january 6th insurrection has been impeded in part by the fact that some of his cronies have refused to cooperate, like his former chief of staff mark meadows, who cited executive privilege and said he would remain loyal to trump and defy a congress subpoena asking him to spill any trump secrets he might have. >> former trump chief of staff mark meadows, who also happens to be a former member of congress he was a no-show today despite the one-six committee's demand that he appear for a deposition, 10:00 a.m. sharp
12:47 am
meadows has also invoked trump's claim of executive privilege >> seth: there you go. mark meadows is claiming executive privilege. his interactions with the president are private and confidential and as a loyal friend and ally, he would never betray that sacred -- i'm sorry. what's that? he wrote a book? [ laughter ] that he got paid money for is it called "home gardening tips, but no secrets about donald trump"? it's not well, what's in it juicy details about all his private interactions with donald trump but what about executive privilege? all right, you know what i really feel like you guys got to explain this stuff to me before the show. i mean, even wally's even confused [ laughter ] yeah yeah, you're right the clip packages always do a good job of explaining stuff the only problem with the clip packages, is they never have any al pacino. all right, whatever, let's roll it >> donald trump tested positive for coronavirus three days before his first debate against joe biden on september 29th, 2020 this stunning revelation is in a
12:48 am
new book by former white house chief of staff mark meadows that was obtained by "the guardian. a positive test the country never knew about despite the positive test, trump attended an indoor event with gold star military families. two days later on tuesday the 29th, chris wallace at fox says trump was not tested at the debate because he arrived late, and they allowed him on stage because they were relying on the honor system later that week on thursday the 1st, trump officially tested positive according to his doctor >> hoo-ah! [ laughter ] >> seth: first of all, i like that trump's aides won't talk to congress, but if they get a book deal, they'll tell the entire world the worst [ bleep ] they can possibly think of. "i'll never testify before congress about my good friend, and loyal steward, donald trump, a man i admire and look up to, who i would never betray you'll just have to read my book titled 'trash can human being.'" [ laughter ] so, it turns out that trump
12:49 am
tested positive for covid before a presidential debate with joe biden, and kept it a secret. although, in retrospect, i feel like maybe we should've known from that debate that he had something, based on his performance. it was either covid or rabbies >> i'll ask joe. >> i -- no no >> the individual -- [ talking over each other >> no, mr. president - no, mr. president. >> no, no, go ahead. >> no, no, no, mr. president mr. president. >> three and a half million joe. >> hoo-ah! >> no. mr. president -- [ laughter ] >> can i be honest it's a very important question >> try to be honest. >> he stood up >> no. >> he stood up - >> the answer to the question is no >> seth: oh, good. so, not only did he have covid, but his mouth was open the entire time. [ laughter ] it's like he was trying to spread it. if you had a 4k tv, you could actually see the coronavirus particles coming out of his mouth. [ laughter ] trump secretly tests positive for covid, didn't tell anyone. then he went to an event with military families and a presidential debate knowing he was spreading covid. in fact, the "washington post" reported, "from the day he tested positive until his hospitalization, trump came in contact with more than 500 people." he's like the johnny appleseed of covid [ laughter ] now, people keep saying that trump looked terrible and we
12:50 am
should have known he had covid but i mean, when does he, you know, not look terrible? i mean, look at this are we supposed to be able to tell [ laughter ] i mean, look at these pictures when was the covid [ light laughter ] he was never exactly the picture of health, you know? you know how at the end of pill commercials they quickly list all the possible side effects? they should just replace that with a photo of trump. [ laughter ] he always looked like a patient on "house" who gets saved at the last minute by some unorthodox treatment. "donald, there's only one way to save you we're going to hook you up --" i'm sorry. "donald -- [ laughter ] "donald! there's only one way to save you. we're going hook up your heart to a pig's heart, and have you swap brains. [ laughter ] suffice it to say it's a relief to know he's no longer in charge as we face the prospect once again of rising cases, a winter surge, and now a new, possibly even more transmissible variant. now, thankfully, scientists, being the cautious, measured people that they are have given it a totally benign, and not at all, terrifying name -
12:51 am
the omicron variant. [ thunder [ evil laugh ] [ laughter ] "the omicron variant" sounds like a paperback i read at grandma's house because they was [ bleep ] else to do [ laughter ] no, grandma, i don't want to read your stories. the [ bleep ] is this? [ laughter ] seriously, the omicron variant i thought scientists were supposed to be mild-mannered, analytical types who don't want you to panic i get that they're just going by the greek alphabet but the greek alphabet is very scary. i propose we start naming the variants after popular child stars of the '90s. [ laughter ] i would just panic less if fauci was on tv telling us about the lipnicki variant [ laughter ] "you know, the lipnicki variant much like the actor it's named after, it's infectious." [ audience aws ] anyway, omicron, aka, haley joel omicron -- see, it works -- is already here, and yet republicans of fox news are dismissing it as some sort of liberal hoax, with one republican calling it the midterm election variant
12:52 am
another saying joe biden wants to make covid the forever pandemic and fox news hosts suggesting biden just came up with it to help him politically >> the emergence of the new covid variant is sparking a fresh round of conspiracy theories former white house doctor turned maga congressman, ronny jackson, tweeted, quote "here comes the mev. the midterm election variant." >> democrats are already using this to jam through their pro-lockdown, anti-freedom agenda but we're not surprised. a new scary variant is another liberal cover-up for joe biden's ongoing and many failures. and maybe that might help in the upcoming midterm elections >> there's always a new variant. >> and you can always -- count on a variant about every october. every few years. [ laughter ] >> yep you know, you're probably right. >> however, they could speed up. the variants could come more quickly. >> we're going need a new variant here >> seth: all right, first of all, i hate to nitpick here, but that's not how you mime holding a phone. [ laughter ] see, if you're pretending to hold a phone, you hold it like
12:53 am
this your hand isn't the phone, the phone is in your hand. like, for example, if i were to mime taking a phone call, i would do this. "hello president of nbc uh-huh, yes. this is seth meyers. i've used up my show's entire tangent budget for the year? [ laughter ] which year 2022?" anyway, back to fox news [ laughter ] are you out of your [ bleep ] mind you think anyone wants this pandemic to keep going you think that's good for democrats politically? everyone is miserable. no one wants this thing to keep going. we all go back to normal. i can't believe i'm saying this, but i would give anything to be on a packed f train high fiving rats, and reconnecting with the dude who insists on bringing his bike on during rush hour [ laughter ] i miss that guy! why do you have a bike on the train though why are you bringing one mode of transportation onto another -- [ laughter ] slower mode of transportation? just ride the bike to work you'll beat us all there [ laughter ] we're all still dealing with the once in a century catastrophe that has resulted in mass suffering, and we have one party that either thinks it's a hoax, or actively tries to spread it
12:54 am
to as many people as possible. we all desperately want to get back to normal the difference is one side has a bunch of proposals for how to get there, and all the other side can say is -- >> yabba dabba do. [ laughter ] >> seth: in what context did he say that [ light laughter ] this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause we'll be right back with javier bardem. ♪ [ cheers and applause >> announcer: for more of seth's "closer looks," be sure to subscribe to "late night" on youtube.
