you've been in washington a year and a half, and so far, the only thing congress has gotten rid of is daylight saving time. [ laughter ] "now that we took care of that, move on to white supremacy [ laughter ] we crushed daylight savings time, i mean." president biden yesterday warned that democracy is in danger, even scarier, in a ransom note [ laughter ] former president trump recently announced he's writing a book titled "the crime of the century" about the alleged voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election look for it in your bookstore's tantrum section. [ laughter ] pennsylvania lieutenant governor john fetterman won last night's democratic senate primary. pretty impressive for a guy who looks like a character from "mike tyson's punch-out! he'll now go on to face sodapoppinski in the general [ light laughter ] north carolina representative madison cawthorn last night lost
his republican primary hopefully he'll learn his lesson next time you get invited to a cocaine orgy, just go. [ laughter ] british prime minister boris johnson recently called for britons to return to work in-person and said that his experience working from home included walking to the fridge and, "hacking off a small piece of cheese, then forgetting what he's doing." [ light laughter ] well, if it helps, you're supposed to be serving as prime minister [ laughter ] seems like that job's big enough that a little piece of cheese shouldn't throw you off it [ light laughter ] in a recent interview, labor secretary and former boston mayor marty walsh said that dunkin' donuts tasted different on a recent trip to south korea. said biden, "you know that's not why we sent you, right?" [ laughter ] "here's the report on the dunkins.
according to a new poll, one in three americans say that the coronavirus pandemic is over unfortunately, he's sitting between the other two. [ laughter ] great, between a couple of sheep. archeologists in laos recently discovered an ancient tooth thought to have belonged to an extinct human species that was lodged in a cave wall. experts believe their last words were, "not cake. [ light laughter ] he thought - work backwards he thought the wall was cake and then he bit it and died. [ light laughter ] and finally, the energy drink company, red bull, last weekend held its world paper airplane championship while four loko launched its first annual squid games.
and that -- that was a monologue, everybody we have got -- [ cheers and applause we have got a great show for you tonight. and she is a writer, actor, and a brilliant comedian her musical, "the bedwetter," makes its off-broadway debut on may 23rd at the atlantic theater company right here in new york city. sarah silverman will be here, everybody. [ cheers and applause sarah silverman. the pride -- sarah silverman, known as the pride of bedford, new hampshire, which is a real burn because it's also my hometown [ laughs ] and you know him from "burn notice," "fargo," and now "law & order." jeffrey donovan will be joining us [ cheers and applause and this is so exciting, music from one of my favorite bands, sleaford mods. they're back on the show [ cheers and applause
this is the first time they're here live. i can't wait for that. but before we get to all of our wonderful guests north carolina republican congressman madison cawthorn, one of the most vocal proponents of donald trump's big lie about the 2020 election, lost his gop primary last night despite trump's endorsement. but trump's minions are still moving full steam ahead with their plan for the next coup for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause >> seth: you know, guys, politics is a rough and tumble business, and d.c. can be a cruel town just when you feel like you're making headway in congress, you're unceremoniously forced out by a cruel and unforgiving system of cutthroats and backstabbers and that's exactly what happened last night when one of our nation's most committed public servants, a camera-shy policy wonk who is laser-focused on serving the greater good, lost his bid for re-election oh, wait, i think i read that whole thing wrong. oh, i read every word wrong. it was just madison cawthorn >> incumbent madison cawthorn has lost the republican nomination for u.s. house district 11 seat in north carolina. >> state senator chuck edwards
beat him with 33% of the vote. cawthorn has officially conceded his seat >> seth: oh, madison, you may be gone, but soon you'll be forgotten at least now he'll have more time for his other job, starring as the, i don't know, bad boy villain in a cw drama. [ laughter ] he looks like he should be next to a locker threatening to tell pacey about dawson's relationship with joey "how can you do this, madison? i thought we were friends. "you know what they say, dawson, every rose has its cawthorn. [ light laughter ] in this show, he plays himself [ light laughter ] so cawthorn lost the gop primary in his district last night after a string of scandals, including accusations of insider trading, multiple traffic stops, and a series of controversial remarks like when he called ukraine's president a thug in fact, it was republicans who waged a relentless campaign to take cawthorn down one gop operative told "the daily beast," "it's definitely a hit job that i'm happy to be a party to." most of the gop universe has
come around to align against this guy you're seeing a full court, state-based establishment pushback against him get this guy out, take him out i will say it's a rare treat to watch republicans tear each other apart, because when republicans decide to knife each other, they hold nothing back. democrats just snipe at each other on cable news about who's responsible for their [ bleep poll numbers they're like the waspy connecticut family that just passive aggressively bickers at the dinner table and then goes to bed full of quiet resentment. going from that to republican infighting is like when you date someone whose family is italian and you go over to their house for dinner, and they're just chucking plates of spaghetti across the room, lunging at each other with salad forks because someone told grandma frank sinatra was overrated. then ten minutes later, they're all hugging and talking about how important family is. and meanwhile, your xanax hasn't even kicked in you're thinking, "i think i maybe should have stayed with abigail." now, famously, the last straw for a lot of republicans came when cawthorn gave an interview claiming his gop colleagues did drugs and invited him to orgies, or as they were supposedly billed to him,
sexual get-togethers >> the sexual perversion that goes on in washington, i mean, it -- being kind of a young guy in washington, where the average age is probably 60 or 70 and i look at all these people, a lot of them that i, you know, i've looked up to through my life, always paid attention to politics, guys that, you know. then all of a sudden you get invited to like, "oh, hey, we're gonna have kind of a sexual get-together at one of our homes, you should come." and i'm like, "wha-what did you just ask me to come to?" and then you realize they're asking you to come to an orgy. or the fact that, you know, there's some of the people that are leading on the movement to try and remove, you know, addiction in our country - and then you watch them do it, you know, a key bump of cocaine right in front of you. and it's like, "wow, this is - this is wild." >> seth: you know, normally i would have dismissed that all as ridiculous, except the gop freaked out. [ light laughter ] plus, there was that one time chuck grassley suspiciously gave a speech on the senate floor with a bowl full of keys on his podium [ laughter ] you guys remember that
he was all, "and that's why inflation is joe biden's fault now, everybody, close your eyes, and pick a set of keys [ laughter ] i'm not your special friend till sunrise. now, cawthorn did get some support from at least one corner of the gop -- trump land trump himself intervened at the last minute to reiterate his support for cawthorn >> former president donald trump endorsed the 26-year-old cawthorn more than a year ago. but on the eve of the primary, trump posted on his truth social platform rehashing cawthorn's background while adding, "recently he made some foolish mistakes, which i don't believe he'll make again let's give madison a second chance." >> seth: let's give madison a second chance sounds like something you'd hear at a sorority after a pledge barfs all over the rug "okay, i know she drank an entire box of franzia, but her dad knows the dean, and i think we should give madison a second chance." but the big takeaway from cawthorn's loss is that when the republican establishment wants to push someone out, they are fully capable of doing it.
they could have easily done the same thing with trump, but they chose not to because they decided instead to collude with him, regardless of how dangerous he is. even now, they're continuing to follow his lead as he prepares for the next coup and continues spreading the big lie that the last election was stolen he even claims he's writing a book about it, although even he admits it won't be good. >> this is the greatest -- this is the crime of the century. i'm actually writing a book about it called "the crime of the century." i don't think you'll enjoy it. you'll be very depressed when you read it, but we want to have it down for historic reasons [ laughter ] >> seth: i love that despite his foray into politics, trump remains, at his core, a terrible salesman [ laughter ] is this why trump steaks didn't work out "folks, i'm coming out with a line of steaks and let me tell you right now, you're not gonna like them because -- because these steaks are tough. it is like -- it's like biting into a wallet. if i'm you, i do not go near those things." but i do agree that it would be historic in that it would be the
first book ever written by someone who has never read one i -- i for real, have an easier time picturing donald trump doing a standing backflip than i do him putting a bookmark between two pages to save his place. "will you look at that i'm late for golf until the next time, march sisters. trump tried virtually every avenue possible to overturn the election, and he's still trying in preparation for the next one. he tried to get the supreme court to overturn it, tried to shake down the georgia secretary of state, and even drafted an executive order to seize voting machines. his plan would have used the military, although i could just as easily see trump asking rudy to seize voting machines "boss! i got one. it's filled with fraudulent votes for abraham lincoln. "rudy, that's a coinstar." "oh, rudy, you done it again, ya dope! [ laughter ] some in trump's orbit were even
pushing him to declare martial law. like marjorie taylor greene, who misspelled it as "marshall" law, as in the name marshall, you know, like marshall mathers. oh, my god, wait a second. now that i think of it, the distance between the ellipse where trump gave his insurrection speech and the capitol, where the insurrection occurred, is exactly eight miles. [ thunder rumbles [ cheers and applause it's actually only two miles sorry, it's just sometimes you get so deep into a bit, you -- [ "lose yourself" plays [ music stops abruptly ] [ laughter ] are we -- are we making the audience play "name that tune" [ laughter ] i can get this joke in half of a note. [ laughter ] okay guys, it's not gonna work, but we're gonna do it again.
[ laughter ] all right, so i did the eight miles and you guys were like, "ooh, impressive." and then i come back, you clap you all did, you can now - no, no, no, no, no, no, don't, no and then i come back and i go, "oh, it's actually only two miles. oh, sorry. sometimes you just so -- you get so deep into a bit, you -- ♪ lose yourself ♪ [ laughter ] let's give madison another chance [ laughter ] and yet, curiously, whenever they're confronted about their plans for martial law, trump's sycophants suddenly get very cagey. in a recent lawsuit, for example, greene was asked repeatedly if she'd texted meadows or brought up the idea of declaring martial law and claimed she couldn't remember.
>> in those meetings, you discussed with him your advocacy for the idea that there should be martial law declared in the united states. >> no, i don't recall ever discussing that. >> are you saying it didn't happen or are you saying you don't recall one way or the other? >> i don't recall ever discussing that. >> the question was whether prior to the inauguration of joe biden, ms. greene, whether you ever advocated for martial law to be imposed in a conversation with the chief of staff of the then-president of the united states, mr. trump. >> answer the question >> i don't recall. >> did you ever advocate for martial law prior to the inauguration of mr. biden with any member of the white house staff that was part of the trump administration? >> i don't recall. >> seth: i feel like i might not recall if i advocated for, say, getting an order of ravioli for the table to share, but i definitely remember if i was pitching martial law oh, wait, no, no, i remember this one time the waiter said they were out of ravioli, and then i said, "well, then i'm
calling in the [ bleep ] military." [ laughter ] and then there's my pillow ceo mike lindell sorry, but there is. [ laughter ] lindell, who sells pillows pre-loaded with nightmares, was photographed in the days before trump left office, walking into the white house with notes that said martial law on them - correctly spelled, it should be noted that's a real burn on marjorie taylor greene when you lose the yelling bee to this guy but when lindell was confronted by a reporter, he claimed he had no idea what the reporter was talking about. >> who gave you the papers >> who gave me the papers? that's none of your business a bunch of lawyers did i didn't -- i've never read -- hold it! i've never read them i went in there with evidence on january 15th you guys are old news. you're regurgitating old news. >> no, we -- >> january 15th, i went in there with four papers that shows dominion and the election crime of the machines and china attacking our country. cyber attack, all 50 states over
12 million votes that donald trump won by. 82 million to 68 million was the real count >> so who gave you the papers that advocate martial law? >> i just said a whole bunch of lawyers did. i've never read them this is old news you're regurgitating you care about - why are you protect a company called dominion and you attack a company called my pillow you're a traitor to our country. you're a disgusting traitor. >> [ chanting ] traitor, traitor, traitor, traitor. >> seth: doesn't give me faith that you're gonna find phony ballots when you can't even find someone to do a chant with you [ laughter ] also, more importantly, let me see if i'm following you your claim is that a bunch of lawyers handed you a pile of documents and you took them to the president of the united states without reading them you must have a hell of a time getting through the airport. "okay, sir, and did you pack these bags yourself? "no. some guys jumped out of an suv and gave them to me and sped off why? what's the problem?" but trump and lindell and their gang of weirdos are not giving up they want to follow through on the coup again, and they'll do it if they get the chance.
in fact, lindell, who got kicked off twitter for spreading election lies, is so desperate to get his account reinstated that he has asked multiple times if anyone knows elon musk so lindell can get in touch with them. >> i'm gonna throw a shout out to elon musk. i would love to meet elon musk i would want to show him all the corruption that went on in the 2020 election with the voting machines i have a shout out right now if anybody knows elon, you can tell him i want to meet with him, 'cause i'm gonna be reaching out to his people i've been wanting to reach out if elon musk, if you're watching, i want to reach out to elon musk. i'd like to sit down with elon myself one on one and show him in a 15-minute little presentation i have to say, "here's where we're at, this is what they did, here is this. you flew to the moon or whatever flew to outer space. here's the cyber stuff >> seth: well, i guess that explains why musk wants out of the twitter deal [ light laughter ] "excuse me, mr. musk the my pillow guy wants to show you a 15-minute presentation on election fraud."
"i'm out, i'm out. i love this part the most. >> you flew to the moon or wherever, flew to outer space. >> seth: what? [ laughter ] he wants to meet with musk, but doesn't even know what musk does. musk has a company that makes rockets. he didn't personally fly to the moon, and that's just lindell. he's just always a little off. "and i love tesla. top ten hair metal bands for me. signs, signs everywhere, a sign blocking out the scenery you know the song. anyway, let me back on twitter i don't got no friends and i live in a van down by the river. switched it up, switched it up cawthorn's loss proves that the gop establishment, if it wanted to, could easily ostracize its most toxic members they just choose not to. they've actively chosen to collude with trump and his ilk, no matter how dangerous they are to democracy because they think that's the path to power cawthorn just got a little too radioactive for them like the old saying goes, he flew too close to --

and it's so funny because, you know, carolines is right there >> seth: very famous comedy club, yep. >> right and a kid is passing out fliers for carolines. "hey, live comedy, live comedy." and i'm like, "i'm gonna make this kid's day 'cause he must be a young comic. i passed out fliers for two years when i started out so i walk over to him, and i go, "no, thank you." and he goes, "okay." [ laughter ] so - >> seth: that's a rough moment >> put me in my place. it's probably good for me. it was good for me >> seth: so, you get to sit -- you know, again, these are previews, so people, they're doing the play, you're getting to watch it. you're getting to watch it with an audience, taking notes in the back >> yeah. >> seth: what is that like do you feel like you're getting a lot out of your notes? >> i mean, real -- yeah, like, just -- i collaborated with this incredible writer, josh harmon, and the incredible david yazbek. we sit in the back there, and we've got our legal pads or whatever, and i'm scribbling notes. and then, when i go home, i look at them and i type them up
and i was looking at them one night, and i don't know how to explain. i've never said this out loud. like, the character who plays my sister laura is talking to little 10-year-old sarah, and she says - she's telling her what she was like when she was a baby and "how i used to change your diaper." and then she says, "and sometimes you would fart." and she would kind of swallow the end of the sentence. and so i was looking at my notes, and it says, "laura, don't swallow fart." [ laughter ] and yeah, i took a picture of it. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> when i was -- you know, you're so serious back there. and then as i'm typing it up, i just laughed so hard because not just at the sentence, "laura, don't swallow fart," but just how serious i know i was when i wrote it >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] so, the true story is, you went to see a hypnotist when you were 10 years old, as a means of
dealing with this problem. and was it still fresh in your head like, do you have vivid memories of it? >> you know, i don't remember yesterday or last week or like four hours ago, but i remember it so vividly. and it's funny 'cause it's a great song in the show, this hypnotist, dr. grimm, which i didn't change his name i don't know, i guess, so far, it's not been a problem. [ laughter ] and then this little sarah and i remember this hypnotist, and i remember him having me close my eyes and talking me through. and there's a stream, and you walk to a clearing and i'm just like, "what's a clearing?" i'm 10 like, i couldn't figure out what it was and then i remember my whole - desperately trying to be hypnotized, but my brain was just like, "this chair is blue he has a penis and balls." [ laughter ] and then i was like, "how does he wipe? do boys wipe front to back like girls?
and i'm like, "where does his front even start?" [ laughter ] and it's this whole inner monologue, and it's in the song and it's so funny. so, every time i watch it, you know, i still, that's one thing where i'm like, "this is, like, literally my thought." like, exactly what was going through -- >> seth: it's authentic to a 10-year-old. >> yeah, it was my entire inner monologue. >> seth: you knew stand-up was something you wanted to do, early on do you remember early jokes? >> oh, yeah, i was - i had really terrible -- i don't remember doing this joke, but i was looking at old notebooks. i don't save things. i'm not very sentimental, but i have all my notebooks since i was like 19, maybe, or 18. and there's a joke in there that's so bad, it made me laugh, just that it's terrible. it said, "i don't know why my goldfish died. i put it in a tank - dot, dot, dot -- top." [ laughter ] just seeing, like -- seeing how i wrote it, how it's
to be performed. [ laughter ] >> seth: it won't work if you just say, "i put it in the tank top," but if you put those two -- you put those dots in there. >> yeah, "top. [ laughter ] >> seth: i'm always very happy to talk about your father. a very funny man all these years. a man who loves comedy now, you know, there's a character in the show who's him, right? and he's come and seen the show, and does he like it? >> he came friday night, saturday matinee, saturday night, sunday matinee, and sunday night five shows in three days >> seth: that is a dad you got a dad on your hands! [ cheers and applause >> oh, my god. >> seth: "a"-list dadding, right there. >> i know. i mean, he's been saying for years, "how much longer do i have to stay alive for this thing?

>> seth: welcome, jeffrey! >> thank you i am so nervous. >> seth: yeah, well, i mean, i will say, it's very rare for a first guest to plug the second guest as much as sarah did for you. [ laughter ] >> oh, my god, and i'm such a fan of hers, i was watching, going, "sarah silverman is doing an impression of me doing my character. >> seth: yeah. >> it was very surreal i was texting my wife. i said, "i'm so nervous. she said, "just go out there, be yourself just be relaxed and boring." >> seth: that's so sweet i feel like that's something my wife would say [ laughter ] this is a very new england-centric show sarah and i, for the same hometown in new hampshire. what town in massachusetts are you from >> a little town called -- well, to normal people, you say "amesbury," but where i'm from "amesbry." >> seth: "amesbry. >> yeah, amesbury, massachusetts. >> seth: gotcha. i know your twitter handle is wickedpissajd, which seems like you're leaning in to being from the - >> yeah, yeah. i mean, growing up, like, you know, i had a wicked hard accent i got rid of it 'cause of school and acting and things like that. my brother still has it, actually >> seth: yeah. he says something like this,
which i'd have to translate. "the party was really good we ran out of beer, so we had to go to the liquor store." so, he would say, "uh, me and mark, we got wicked cocked last night. the pony went dry, so we went on a packie run." >> seth: oh, yeah. [ laughter ] all that, that does make sense to me. my native tongue, yeah so, your wife -- speaking of your wife, very impressive she ran the boston marathon, i guess, just last month, right? which, you know, it's a big deal and not an easy -- i mean, no marathon is easy, but that one's particularly hard >> yeah, they say that's one of the most difficult, and it's the hardest to get into. you have to qualify to get into it. you can't just show up and run it like the new york city marathon >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] so, it's not a contest, jeffrey. >> it is boston's better. [ laughter ] yeah, she qualified and then she ran her personal best. she ran in 3 hours and 17 minutes >> seth: that is a run, man. >> i'm very proud of her >> seth: that is a no-foolin' marathon time. >> then, i thought, "oh, well, she did something great. i'm gonna treat myself," which, you know, that's how it works. so, i don't get back to boston
much so, i grew up on steamers, steamed clams. >> seth: yeah. >> where we say "steam-uhs." and so i called a restaurant i was like, "hey, yeah, i want to order some 'steam-uhs.' they said, "what?" >> "steam-uhs. have i lost my boston accent "steam-uhs, steam-uhs, steam-uhs. they're like, "sorry, we don't know what you're saying. "they're clams you put them in a pot, you boil them." "you mean mussels? "no, no. >> seth: oh, my god. did you go burn that place down? [ laughter ] >> i called like five restaurants. no one knew what "steam-uhs" were >> seth: oh, boston's changed. now, you know, i will say, you did deserve a treat because, you know, obviously, your wife is a very fast woman and she was running, but that's 3 hours and 17 minutes where you were in charge of four children because you have four kids >> much harder >> seth: much harder, yeah >> much harder but they were -- they were great. i kept on telling them, "we're gonna go watch mom." and we got down there, i had a nice pass. nbc was very nice.
they, like, let me be in the bleachers. and i was sitting there with the four kids, and there she came running down you see these other guys you see guys like this running like this, going, "oh, my god, oh, my god." see my wife going -- >> seth: oh, yeah. [ laughter ] >> she just runs by like it was - and then the youngest is a year and a half, and he's still on mommy milk, so she went right back to work >> seth: she deserves two medals for that, yeah hey, so, i have to ask, you know, again, we were talking backstage, we both have loved this franchise for a long time, but you've actually appeared two other times as two different characters on "law & order" over the years. so you've had quite a nice trajectory >> yeah, i got out of school, and everyone wanted to be on "law & order." >> seth: yes >> it was a badge of honor and so i started off as a dead guy >> seth: oh, congrats! >> oh, yeah, yeah. >> seth: so, like, never moved never moved a muscle >> no, yeah, i was dead, but then you had a flashback on a videotape, so i had a few lines. >> seth: okay, good. >> and then like ten years later, i came back as a suspect. >> seth: uh-huh. >> killed someone.
>> seth: oh! so not just a suspect. >> i was a murderer. >> seth: yeah, okay, great >> but it was for a good reason. >> seth: oh, interesting [ laughter ] i'll have to go back and watch that one >> i was a dad protecting my daughter's - what's that, her mortal -- >> seth: tell it to the jury [ laughter ] and then, yeah, mr. wolf called and said, "you want to play detective cosgrove?" and i dropped the phone, picked it back up, and so, so grateful. >> seth: even though you threw a little shade at the new york city marathon i imagine one of the great things about the show, and i've asked anthony about this, as well, but being out in the streets, you shoot this show in the streets. like, people, it must be great, new yorkers getting to watch you do a show like this. it's been a franchise in the city for so long >> yeah, it's been - the city's been so welcoming but it's an amazing thing to walk down the street with anthony anderson i mean, i'm vaguely familiar, basically, my whole life people usually think that, like, they went to high school with me. >> seth: right >> "did we, uh, fourth grade?" "no. but anthony is like the mayor of the city and we walk down, shooting, in
the middle of the take, they'll yell, "anthony, anthony! he won't break stride. he'll just be like, "hey, how you doing? what's goin' on? i'm shootin' a show! [ laughter ] >> seth: there you go. and people are gonna listen to anthony anderson >> and what do you got >> seth: hey, man, thanks for being here congrats on the show >> thank you >> seth: it's wonderful. jeffrey donovan, everybody season finale of "law & order" airs tomorrow night at 8:00, here on nbc. we'll be right back with sleaford mods.
