[ cheers and applause starting week one, it was number three, and now it's up to number four [ laughter ] it was very exciting [ laughter ] one day, number ten. anyway, it's called, "i'm not scared, you're scared." it has a rabbit and a bear first children's book ever to have both. perfect for the easter basket, or just to, you know, just to
leave out for bears. i don't know i'm not in charge of marketing it's available wherever you buy your books, but please remember to support local and independent bookstores speaking of support, i would love your support as i attempt to segue from a children's book to tonight's "closer look. here i go. donald trump took the next step in his slow-moving coup over the weekend when he went to michigan for a rally in part to support fringe state-level candidates who support the big lie that the 2020 election was stolen, and would wield power over future elections in the state for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause >> seth: the quasi-religious mythology trump's followers have built around him have now gotten so detached from reality, they're erasing the things he has done, while giving him credit for things he hasn't done for example, former vice president mike pence-- you know, the guy trump supporters threatened to hang while trump stood by silently, said this over the weekend on fox news >> president biden has done more damage to america than any president in modern history. >> seth: wow
how strict is your definition of "modern history? "modern history is everything since the slap." [ laughter ] then from 900 ad to the slap, that's the middle ages seriously, man, what's your deal you're still trying to win over trump voters they stormed the capitol and they chanted, "hang mike pence." that's you you're like a guy who gets a fake number from a woman at a bar and keeps calling it, hoping to get a date. "hello is alice there well, this is the number she wrote on the bar napkin. [ laughter ] well, you don't have to be rude. and i can i just add, i don't think kids are old enough to have their own cars. but maybe pence thinks biden is worse than trump because he was asleep during the entirety of the trump presidency, which is possible, given that in every meeting, he had his eyes closed like he was desperately hoping no one would notice him. he's got his eyes closed like he's trying not to throw up on a state fair tilt-a-whirl.
these trump toadies are all such obsequious little worms, but pence's faux gravitas makes him that much more insufferable. the head shaking, the solemn tone, the put-on folksy demeanor he looks and moves like a chuck e. cheese robot who tells the band to keep it down "fellas, it's loud enough in here with all the dang kids screaming. but trump's sycophants aren't just trying to erase his many failures they're also trying to give him credit for things he had nothing to do with for example, on saturday, sitting member of congress, representative lisa mcclain said at a trump rally in michigan that it was trump who had found osama bin laden. >> while president trump was in office, we didn't have a war, and i think he made three peace treaties caught osama bin laden and soleimani, al-baghdadi and this president is weak and i'll tell you, weakness breeds aggression. we need strength >> seth: yeah, we need strength.
the kind of strength it takes to find and kill an elusive terrorist while simultaneously hosting a game show with your wet, asymmetrical sons was finding bin laden one of the tasks on "the apprentice"? "jose canseco, need to create a 60-second commercial for the new onstar mirror. and lisa rinna, you're off to abottabad, pakistan to look for clues. you can do it, lisa. seriously, these people should have to take the same kind of test to stay in congress that you give a boxer to make sure they can stay in the fight "how many fingers am i holding up?" "16. "what year is it?" "3069. "who killed osama bin laden? "donald trump. "okay, we're calling it. do you seriously not remember that famous photo where barack obama, hillary clinton, and joe biden were in the situation room, watching the raid as it happened? is there some photoshop version floating around on the qanon forums where trump is sitting in the middle of the picture in that stance he always has, like he's trying to crowd out the people next to him on the subway "excuse me can you move i need at least an entire row to myself i can't close my legs. i have to have my backpack on the ground."
it's also especially galling to give trump credit for catching bin laden, given that trump himself dismissed it as a non accomplishment when the admiral in charge of the raid, william mcraven, publicly criticized trump during his presidency >> bill mcraven, retired admiral, navy seal, 37 years, former head of us special operations >> hillary clinton fan >> special operations -- >> excuse me, hillary clinton fan. >> who led the operations, commanded the operations that took down saddam hussein and that killed osama bin laden says that your sentiment is the greatest threat to democracy in his lifetime >> okay. he's a hillary clinton backer and an obama backer, and frankly -- >> he was a navy seal for 37 years >> wouldn't it have been nice if we got osama bin laden a lot sooner than that wouldn't it have been nice you know, living -- think of this, living in pakistan, beautifully in pakistan, in what i guess they considered a nice mansion, i don't know. i've seen nicer. [ laughter ] >> seth: alright, couple of things first of all, stop shouting "hillary clinton fan" like a guy on "wheel of fortune," who insists his answer is right. "pat, i'd like to solve the puzzle "hillary clinton fan!" [ buzzer ]
"hillary clinton fan." [ buzzer ] "okay, let's turn around the letters and we see that the answer is -- "uyour honoryour honor 'hillary clinton fan.' [ buzzer ] also, let's go back to this for a second, because this is a perfect trump sentence >> living in pakistan, beautifully in pakistan, in what i guess they considered a nice mansion. i don't know i've seen nicer. >> seth: he wants to shame mcraven for not catching bin laden sooner by saying he was living in a beautiful mansion, but he also can't stop himself from [bleep] on the mansion. and look, like everyone, i was upset when i heard bin laden was living in a mansion, and then i saw it and thought, "oh, okay, that makes me feel a little bit better." on a smaller scale, it's how i feel when i see a picture of trump at the omelet bar at his golf club. sure, he's a free man, but those look like [bleep] eggs, and that makes me smile a little bit. also, it's pretty rich for trump to insinuate the admiral who caught the world's most wanted
terrorist should have done it sooner, considering we're still waiting on the tax returns trump promised us in 2016. maybe obama had to wait for the raid for the same reason we're still waiting for that "we know where he is, mr. president, but our intel tells us he's being audited by the irs. "well, then we, uhh, have to wait." anyway, mcclain made that comment in michigan over the weekend at yet another one of trump's unhinged rallies, and at first, it may have seemed like a typical trump rally not worth paying much attention to, given that most of it was his usual shtick for example, trump did that thing he always does where he says something, then predicts that the media will criticize him for saying it. >> i knew putin very well. you know, they say, "oh, he knows putin, he knows putin. ohh. that's a good thing, not a bad thing. i know kim jong un i know president xi of china >> seth: why are you just listing off people you know? [ laughter ] you sound like a five year old rattling off which dinosaur stickers he has. "i got triceratops, i got brontosaurus i've got doubles of pterodactyl. also, no one is mad that you know dictators
they're mad because you admire and seek to emulate them you've constantly lavished praise on vladimir putin as he criminally interfered in american democracy and waged a brutal war on an innocent neighboring country. and in general, you're clearly desperate to mimic autocrats like during a previous rally when trump said president xi of china was smart because he rules his country like a ruthless tyrant >> you know, every time i say somebody is smart, they always go, "oh, trump said that president xi of china is smart." well, you know, he runs 1.5 billion people with an iron fist yeah, i think he's pretty smart. and they have a chain over there. you know, if you're a dummy, you get left here. it's like this it's like a pyramid. the smartest one get to the top. >> seth: i think you're confusing a dictatorship with a cheerleading squad [ laughter ] "they put the smartest cheerleader at the top, because then if the pyramid collapses,
maybe you lose a few idiots, but becky still goes to princeton. although i'm guessing there are some similarities. "janice, if you don't get your [bleep] together and nail this basket toss, we're not going to make state!" by the way, you might think because i'm a 48-year-old man and a father of three, i haven't seen the movie "bring it on. but guess what you're wrong, because it came out 22 years ago when i was childless and happy. in fact, i would even -- look, i love my kids i just haven't seen that movie in like a month. in fact, i would even go so far to say that trump wants to turn our democracy into a cheer-ocracy and that's today's unnecessary "bring it on" reference. [ cheers and applause i love trump's theory that the dummies get left at the bottom in a dictatorship. let's hope rudy giuliani never has to find his way to the top in a trump dictatorship. >> from the top to the bottom, from the middle to the side. >> seth: "good news.
they told me i'm going to be all the way up here at the top because i'm smart. that's such a revealing window into trump's worldview if you're a tyrant who rules with an iron fist, that makes you smart, while democracy is for suckers. in fact, at his michigan rally, trump even joked about what it would have sounded like if he'd conceded, mocking it like it was some dumb idea >> be a lot easier for me to say, "oh. it'd be a lot easier for me to do like many people have done, get up and just say "congratulations," whoever it is i'm running against. i mean, if you're running, i'd say, "congratulations, joe." >> seth: why is his trump impression so bad? [ laughter ] so everyone has a donald trump except donald trump? he sounds like vincent d'onofrio from "men in black." [ garbled sounds ] [ laughter ] "i think my trump's getting pretty good. [ laughter ] no, like that.
what you're doing right now. "what, like i'm doing right now? no, this isn't." [ garbled sounds ] [ laughter ] "that's how i sound. [ garbled sounds ] to trump, the idea of conceding when you lose is laughable it's a joke, only something suckers do, and that's why he was really there for his ongoing attempt to end american democracy and install himself, or whoever the next republican nominee is as an unelected autocrat because by his own admission, trump was there in part to campaign for state-level gop candidates who have embraced the big lie and would wield power over michigan's elections in 2024 if they win and even by trump's own admission, it was unusual that he was there for that reason >> remember, this is not just about 2022 this is about making sure michigan is not rigged and stolen again in 2024 i have to be honest, i don't do this often i don't do this often for state people this is so important what happened in michigan is a disgrace >> seth: once again, the guy
just admits it all in public he's like a guy robbing a bank saying, "i don't do this often usually i just take money out of the atm, but the atm only lets you take your own money. i mean, what's the deal with that?" [ laughter ] and it's not just michigan republicans are doing this across the country in preparation for the next coup. >> this morning, "the associated press" published an expansive and very well-reported story on the attack on our democracy. this is the headline, "slow motion insurrection, how the republican party seizes election power. as the ap describes it, "in battleground states and beyond, republicans are taking hold of the once-overlooked machinery of elections. experts are sounding alarms, warning the united states is witnessing a slow-motion insurrection with a better chance of success than trump's failed power grab last year. >> seth: first of all, of course it's a slow-motion insurrection. everything trump does is in slow motion remember when he used to just wander around the white house lawn like a dad in the backyard looking for some weeds to spray? so it may be slow motion, but it's definitely happening. it's something most people don't
realize, but trump has figured out, because our elections are decentralized, if you want to subvert them, you have to install loyalists in those local positions across the country, like secretary of state. remember how trump tried to shake down the georgia secretary of state to help him steal votes? well, now trump is backing a challenger who supports the big lie, just like he's doing in michigan and several other states across the country. republicans are still very much engaged in their slow moving coup, and this is their playbook they've figured out that if you want to install yourself at the top, you need loyal foot soldiers at-- >> the bottom. [ laughter ] >> seth: he passed the bar [ laughter ] this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause we'll be right back with leslie mann, everybody ♪ [ cheers and applause >> announcer: for more of seth's "closer looks," be sure to subscribe to "late night" on youtube. ♪ no king? gentlemen have you taken leave of your senses.

[ laughter ] and then my best friend and i and david, with the three of us, were going to a bar after the party. and we got into a cab, started to leave, and david stopped the cab, and he got out of the cab and left the cab >> seth: okay. >> ran away from the cab and then didn't speak to me again for 27 years >> seth: really? >> yes >> seth: wow >> i know. >> seth: did you find out what you had done >> so, we talked about it a lot over the course of 27 years. like, "what happened
what is this?" and then when we, you know, met again, or were about to have this reunion on "the bubble," i. like, worked up the courage to go and ask him, "what the hell happened?" like, "why did you get out of the cab? and he said, um, "oh, yeah, i kind of remember that. i think i just left my weed in my room. [ laughter ] and that was it. >> seth: yeah. >> seth: 27 years, you're beating yourself up -- >> tortured. >> seth: just because david duchovny can't remember his weed before a party. >> exactly, i know >> seth: it's very kind that you forgave him for that >> right don't do drugs [ laughter ] >> seth: unless you can meet god [ laughter ] so, you -- there's some roller skating. you're on roller skates in this film. >> i am. >> seth: you seem like you know what you're doing. is this something you learned from the film? >> yeah. i mean, we all roller skate when we're kids, right? and we give it up. like, we give up roller skating and skateboarding 'cause it's just weird to do that as an adult, right
>> seth: yeah, and there's just too high a risk. >> it's high-risk, right >> seth: the reward is not good enough for the risk. >> right, right, right so i picked it up again, like, a couple of years ago. a year and a half ago, during lockdown and it was just, like, a good exercise and, like, a good outlet, you know, for all of my pent-up energy [ laughs ] >> seth: were you skating, like, in the neighborhood? >> no, i had, like, a little space this big, and i would just sit in front of a mirror and like - [ laughter ] and just go. >> seth: you're doing fine as an empty-nester [ laughter ] don't let anybody tell you you're not thriving. what with your little at-home roller skate rink. [ laughter ] >> it's so bad it's really bad. >> seth: well, at least you're not talking to cats. oh, wait >> oh, wait. [ laughter ] >> seth: maude gave you her cats >> maude - okay, so, we have two cats, honey and pumpkin.
and then maude got two more cats. chris, named after christopher from "the sopranos," and dolly and then she dropped them off at our house and never picked them up. so now we have four cats, and i spend a lot of time with the cats [ laughter ] and so, yeah, you know, the kids notice that i'm having, like, very long conversations now with the cats [ laughter ] and it's gotten a little weird, but they're great cats they're not, like, your average cat. they're, like, smart and fun >> seth: they're, like, good listeners. >> they're good listeners. >> they are. they're great. i don't know >> seth: so, you have a video of your cat who made the video for you >> what? well, honey, made the video. >> seth: oh, your cat made the video? this would be proof that this is not your normal cat. let's take a look at honey real quick >> of course, leslie and i talk, seth we're both fascinating people with a lot to say. what do you expect don't listen to the haters, babe i'm sick of dog people giving us a hard time. [ laughter ] >> seth: are you sure you didn't
do ayahuasca [ laughter ] >> oh, my god!
