tv midnight With Chris Hardwick Comedy Central March 6, 2017 11:31pm-12:02am PST
stastay tuned for "@midnight" coming up next. now here it is... your moment of zen. >> yeah, there's a rembrandt trapped in this body. and came back realizing i was serious, and i painted a cube. then i painted a watermelo tcomedy centrala watermelo [cheers and applause] >> chris: it's 29 minutes until midnight -- can't hear me at all. they don't know. the clapping and applause dies down. after news broke that zip lock bag corn chowder donald trump is
skipping the correspondence dinner. we figured we'd push for our old pal, anthony atamanuik, who's been doing his amazing trump impression for like a year now. you can see the trump/bernie debates on youtube. we thought maybe anthony could do this filling in for trim -p by promoting the hashtag "makeanthonytrumpagain." we even got the support of luke skywalker himself! the hashtag trended on twitter, it seemed like everyone was on board... everyone except for another trump impersonator: famous actor and longtime resident debt of your mom's mass cash, alec baldwin. for some reason, baldwin went on jimmy kimmel and dismissed anthony as, quote, "a guy who's
on the internet." which makes anthony sound like he's currently stuck in tron. he's a real guy. done a lot of stuff. anthony's been honing this trump impression since 2015, longer than alec baldwin, and he's -- i don't want to battle anything. they were on "30 rock" together for years. the whole thing spilled over onto twitter, where alec was dismissive of anthony. and then, when james adomian, who plays bernie sanders to tony's trump, jumped in, admittedly a little hot! alec responded by threatening to sue him. and the coup-de-grace on this whole thing: alec baldwin's twitter account blocked both @midnight, a tv show, and me, he [beep] me for some reason. i didn't do anything. what did i do?
i didn't do anything. i didn't mean to be part of this. we were supporting our buddy, you know. first of all i wasn't following him and he blocked me. [laughing] >> chris: now i'm upset that i can't follow him. i want to, i'm blocked. alec, i thought we were friends. this is your hand on my shoulder. look at this. [cheers and applause] >> chris: i didn't know alec baldwin wanted to do the correspondence dinner. both do it. roast the other strum and swap places. who gives a [beep]. [cheers and applause] >> chris: tony, alec could do the correspondence. let's [beep] do it, [beep] you're alec baldwin, great. tony is the underdog. he's the bernie sanders of donald trump. you understand. taking things too personally.
threatening people with lawsuits and blocking me. aka, built a wall! [cheers and applause] >> chris: so, comedians -- i don't want bad blood. what can i say to get alec baldwin to unblock me. >> hey, alec, it's lauren michaels. can you unblock mr. hardwick and maybe an appearance on the "walking dead." great, see you saturday. >> chris: that would be great. arielle. >> you don't need this, you have the alec baldwin money. >> chris: yes, he does. flu that borg. >> listen of all of the baldwin bothers aoer absolutely in my top three. >> chris: see. alec, let's be friends again. >> chris: next up, tale as old as time.
the upcoming "beauty and the beast" reboot will feature disney's first gay character, which, of course, means several terrible places are considering banning the movie. including russia and a theater in alabama, the russia of america. this strikes me as hypocritical, because if they wanted to get rid of movies with homoerotic themes, they'd have to stop showing anything from "the fast and the furious" franchise. [laughing] >> is that the same person? chris: no the rock and vin diesel. >> i thought they were the same person. >> chris: well -- they were created in the same laboratory, i imagine. comedians, since this one theater in alabama isn't too keen on keeping up with the times, what's a more conservative disney movie they could show? arielle. >> trump is going to build a wally. >> chris: yes, points. very good. stove. >> pete's grand dragon. [laughing]
[cheers and applause] >> chris: points for that. mr. borg. >> guantaminomajuana. chris: points. [laughing] >> chris: next, single prop-osal. california-based romeo darrell hamilton decided to propose to his girlfriend in a tiny single engine plane, because nothing says romance more than constantly scanning the skies for harrison ford. unfortunately, darrell's proposal was memorable for a different reason. did he: vomit uncontrollably or crash into his fiance's house? steve. >> fiance's house, crash. chris: why do you think we would show. that through process of elimination you think an answer on this comedy show would be a [beep] plane crash i think i have video of me crashing into my fiance's house. >> chris: fine. appreciate that you are doubling down on the wrong answer despite
my attempts to help you. here is the correct answer. >> oh, no. >> no. >> no, no. chris: still holding the ring. >> ya. chris: memorable. >> yes. >> chris: aw, she really brings out the best in him, including is the bubba gump shrimp platter he had for lunch. let's check the scoreboards. follow her on twitter & instagram @arielle, it's arielle vandenberg. his new line of boom fanny packs -- [cheers and applause]

[cheers and applause] >> thank you, chris. it's great to be here. >> chris: now it's time for tonight's #hashtagwars. we shoot this show here in hollywood, california, where dreams come true, and where a much larger percentage of dreams -- there was an audible section of people, ahhh. but california is also home to the recording industry, the porn industry, both hard and softcore, and, most famously, the film industry, which has gifted us the softest core: "paul blart" and "paul blart 2." so in honor of both the golden state and the silver screen, tonight's hashtag is

over the weekend, president trump went on a four-tweet tirade claiming that trump tower was filled with bugs, and he wasn't referring to the ringworms steve bannon got from sleeping in a dumpster behind a fat burger. no, the president pitched a twit-fit, without providing any evidence, that obama tapped the phones in trump tower before the election. in one he says, "i'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case" out of it. but then again he also bet that people would want to buy a box of beef from someone who looks like he's about to get remarried in a pawn shop, so what does he know. [beep] every one of these, [beep] every one of them. most media outlets are calling trump's baseless claims baseless. things have been so crazy lately. what if it's true. comedians, over the break, give me a recorded phone call at trump tower picked up by obama's bugs. we will get your answers after the break with more "@midnight."
