tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC August 30, 2016 12:37am-1:38am PDT
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- michael moore. from "southside with you," actress tika sumpter. music from troye sivan. featuring the 8g band with allison miller. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] well, isn't that great to hear. let's get to the news. organizers are reportedly struggling to find a moderator for the first presidential
debate because of anticipated accusations of bias from donald trump. hmm, if only we could find someone who secretly hates trump and clinton equally -- there it is. there it is! [ laughter ] perfect moderator. the first question is for a millionaire, so either one of you can take it. [ laughter ] donald trump's campaign manager kellyanne conway spoke about trump's new integration policy over the weekend, and said he will insure that enforcement is humane. humane? i don't think it's a good sign when a candidate is talking about undocumented immigrants the same way kfc talks about chickens. we'll do it humanely. they won't feel a thing. [ laughter ] hillary clinton has begun pledging $30 billion over the next decade to retrain coal miners to be able to work in newer technology businesses, so get ready for an interesting trip to the apple store.
[ light laughter ] donald trump's recent claim that hillary clinton may be suffering from a secret ailment seems to have backfired on him, which has led to questions about his own health as well as a re-examination of the very strange letter written by trump's doctor, dr. harold bornstein, several months ago. which read in part, "if elected, mr. trump, i can say unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency." then this week, dr. bornstein said that he wrote the letter in five minutes while trump's limousine waited outside to pick the letter up. here to comment on all this is dr. harold bornstein. doctor, thank you for being here. [ cheers and applause ] >> thanks for having me, seth. >> seth: so doctor, you said in the letter that trump's lab test results were astonishingly excellent. >> that's right, seth. he couldn't be healthier.
he's got perfect brain pressure, and his chlorophyll is very low. >> seth: now, chlorophyll, i think you might mean cholesterol. >> no, his cholesterol is through the roof. [ laughter ] still, his health is excellent. firm gonads. both ears on the side of his head. that's right where you want them. [ light laughter ] perfect mental health. >> seth: okay, now i'm glad you brought that up, because you said in an interview that mr. trump was in perfect mental health. my question is why would you, a gastroenterologist, be qualified to assess his mental health? >> well that would be because of the location of mr. trump's head. [ laughter ] >> seth: sorry. what do you mean? [ laughter ] [ cheering ] [ cheers and applause ] you mean that -- >> his head's up his ass. >> seth: okay i got ya. [ laughter ] >> seth: one more thing, doctor. you told nbc news this week that you only took five minutes to write the letter. why the rush?
>> well, i remembered back to what they told me on the last day of medical school. they said when you get back to the united states -- >> seth: okay. wait hold on. so wait -- [ laughter ] does that mean you didn't go to the medical school in the u.s.? where did you go? >> in the virgin islands. the isle of saint kenneth. >> seth: okay now -- i'm sure there's no saint kenneth. >> it has since sunk into the ocean. [ light laughter ] it was very small. >> seth: i see. i see. so what did they tell you on the last day of dical school? >> they told us not to waste a lot of time writing letters. the patient is the most important thing. >> seth: i see, and did they tell you anything else? >> yes they said, "get on the damn boat! the island is sinking!" it happened so fast. [ laughter ] >> seth: okay, well, thank you so much for your time. dr. harold bornstein, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] apple next week is expected to unveil the iphone 7. "how's the camera?" asked anthony wiener. [ laughter ]
that's right. former representative anthony wiener's column in "the new york daily news" was dropped today after reports of a third sexting scandal, but if you still want to see wiener's column, don't worry. he will text it to you eventually. [ light laughter ] taylor swift skipped the mtv video music video awards to attend jury duty in tennessee. say the other jurors, "please stop calling us your squad." [ laughter ] [ applause ] there is growing speculation that the secret blend of 11 herbs and spices used to flavor kentucky fried chicken may have been revealed after the nephew of colonel sanders accidentally showed a reporter a list of ingredients found in a family scrapbook. and it's basically what we suspected. [ laughter ] how dare you let them get your hands on the secret recipe. you are no nephew of mine.
and my ghost shall haunt you. [ applause ] a restaurant -- seriously, guys. a restaurant in manhattan has created a $15, 25-ounce milk shake, which comes in a cream cheese frosted glass covered in marshmallows and cereal, filled with ice cream and topped with a cinnamon bun. at least that's what it said on the toxicology report. [ light laughter ] and, finally, a group from brooklyn has created a jet engine powered merry-go-round. "it's incredible," said a little kid who is now in new jersey. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight. [ applause ] he is here to talk about the upcoming presidential election. academy award winning director michael moore is here tonight. so excited about that. [ cheers and applause ] she is in the new film "south side with you" that we mentioned in the monologue. tika sumpter is here tonight. can't wait to talk to her. [ cheers and applause ] and we have music from a south african singer-songwriter.
troye sivan is here tonight. very excited for you to hear him. [ cheers and applause ] before we get to all that, the presidential campaign has settled into something of an equilibrium, but there's still at least one x-factor that could change everything, and that's the debates. and both candidates are preparing for them in very different ways. for more on this time it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so the first debate is a little less than a month away, and we're already getting a preview of just how contentious it can be with hillary clinton documenting trump's association with the racist fringe known as the alt-right, and trump employing the "i know you are, but what am i" strategy. >> all week both trump and hillary clinton have been accusing each other of racism and bigotry. >> donald trump and hillary clinton released new attacks accusing each other of bigotry. >> we have both major party candidates referring to each other as racist and bigots. >> seth: there is a difference, though. hillary is using facts and evidence to document trump's
history of stoking racial resentment, and trump might think bigot is a compliment, because it has the word "big" in it. [ laughter ] i'm not just a bigot. i'm a hugot. a tremendousist. so how are hillary and trump preparing for the crucial fall debates? in very different ways. according to the "washington post," quote, "hillary clinton is methodically preparing for the presidential debates. as a veteran lawyer would approach her biggest trial. she pours over briefing books thick with policy arcana and opposition research. she internalizes tips from the most seasoned debate coaches in her party, and she rehearses over and over again to perfect the pacing and substance of her presentation." so just your laid back classic hillary. [ light laughter ] her prep sounds so intense, i wouldn't be surprised if she was hooked up to a bunch of computers with steroids being pumped into her veins like ivan drago. [ light laughter ] when she shows up to the first debate to shake trump's hand, she's going to be like -- >> i must break you. [ laughter ]
>> seth: what about trump? how's he preparing for the debates? well, according to the same "washington post" article, quote, "donald trump is taking a different approach. he summons his informal band of counselors to his new jersey golf course for sunday chats over bacon cheeseburgers, hot dogs and glasses of coca-cola. they test out zingers and chew over ways to refine the republican nominee's pitch." cheeseburgers, hot dogs and soda? on top of the kfc and taco bowls, if trump doesn't get the job of president, may i recommend prilosec spokesman? [ laughter ] so who is advising trump on these debates, and what does that tell us about what we can expect? well trump's debate brain trust reportedly includes, quote, "former new york mayor rudy giuliani, former fox news chair roger ailes and campaign chief executive stephen bannon." oh, yes, the a-team, or more accurately, the a-hole team. [ light laughter ] there's giuliani, who recently claimed hillary clinton had an undisclosed illness based on video he saw online. roger ailes, who was forced out of fox news after an alleged
pattern of repeated sexual harassment and steve bannon, who ran the alt-right website "bright bart news," and who looks like robert redford if he drowned in a river. [ light laughter ] it's a compliment-ish. [ laughter ] and this question of who is advising trump on debates isn't just an academic one. it matters, because as the "washington post" once reported, quote, "trump tends to echo the words of the last person with whom he spoke." that explains why trump recently opened a press conference by saying, "i don't want to do this anymore. i want to go home to slovenia." [ laughter and applause ] but as viewers -- as viewers, we could be in for a crazy few nights of television. as a former trump advisor put it, trump is treating the debates like a reality show. quote, "he wants to be a showstopper at the roman coliseum. the main event at wrestlemania." well, i guess we know what trump will do to the moderator if he
thinks the questions are biased. >> donald trump! donald trump! >> oh, my god! >> the hostile takeover of donald trump. [ laughter ] >> seth: i know. i know. we have shown that clip a bunch before on the show, but i'm just never going to get tired of it. [ light laughter ] and if you are hillary, wondering how to prepare for something like that, you might want to heed the advice of john weaver. an advisor to ohio governor john kasich, who says this about preparing to go up against trump in a gop primary debate in july of last year. "imagine a nascar driver mentally preparing for a race, knowing one of the drivers will be drunk. that's what prepping for this debate is like." and if you think drunken racecar driver isn't exactly what most americans want in their president, don't worry, because giuliani thinks trump has an advantage. >> he is going to talk to them straight from the heart and tell them what he thinks, and it's worked for him before. i think it's going to work even better now, because they have set the bar so low for him.
>> seth: that's right. trump's biggest advantage is how low the bar is currently set. basically as long as he doesn't walk on stage, take a whiz on the side of the podium and make up a story about how hillary robbed him at gunpoint, he will exceed, exceed, expectations. [ cheers and applause ] that's it. that's all he doesn't have to do. there's also one other thing we know about trump's debate strategy. no matter who it is, he will complain about the moderator. in fact, he has already started to complain preemptively, saying he wants to make sure the moderator is fair to him, and apparently the commission on presidential debates is taking these concerns seriously because according to cnn, the commission had planned to announce moderators in late august, but it now intends to wait until after september 5th so they can find individuals who are immune to accusations of bias. look, guys, don't bend over backward for trump. the only way he won't complain is if he gets to moderate the debate himself.
secretary clinton, as a criminal with a secret illness, tell us why you love isis. take your time. [ light laughter ] now, someone who doesn't seem to be doing much complaining about the debates so far is trump's running mate, indiana governor mike pence, who revealed on sunday that he is also preparing for his debate against hillary clinton's running mate tim kaine. >> how you doing it? >> we are. well, we just -- >> do you have somebody playing tim kaine? >> we're talking to some people about doing that. >> seth: well,ou don't need to get an actor to stand in and play tim kaine. just go to home depot and get some sheetrock. [ light laughter ] also, who are we kidding? is anyone going to watch a pence-kaine debate after the bare-knuckled brawls between hillary and trump? that's like following up an mma fight with an episode of a prairie home companion. [ laughter ] you might as well hold the vp debate in an abandoned shopping mall and let a raccoon moderate it. [ laughter ] this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ]

[ cheers and applause ] >> thanks, seth. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: our first guest tonight is the academy award winning filmmaker of documentaries like "bowling for columbine," "fahrenheit 911," and most recently "where to invade next." please welcome to the show, michael moore. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i'm very happy to have you here. >> thank you for having me. >> seth: i'm very excited to talk to you. i want to talk to you about donald trump, but i really want to talk to you about this first before we get to all that. >> oh, okay. >> seth: so, this has been a big year for o.j. simpson stories. there was the great -- fx did a great serialized account.
there was a great documentary. this is a true story that i believe you've never told before. you did a pilot for a talk show. >> yes, the executive producer -- i didn't think they would bring this up. [ light laughter ] >> seth: so this is -- >> all right. go ahead. >> seth: so you had a talk show pilot that you shot for fox a few weeks after the verdict. >> good fox. "the simpsons" fox. >> seth: "simpsons" fox. >> yeah. [ light laughter ] >> seth: okay. so you're doing a pilot for them, and you had o.j. simpson as a guest on your pilot talk show. >> that's right. just shortly after he was found not guilty after the trial. i was going to do this pilot, and i basically -- i got his number, and i called him up and asked him if he would come on my talk show. and i talked to him for a few minutes, and he said, "yeah, i'll do it." so i got the first interview with him after the trial. >> seth: and a strange place to do an interview with someone like that right from the trial would be a late night comedy show. >> right, exactly. yeah. like, my first guest that night was jon stewart. the second guest was kevin smith. molly shannon was on it.
>> seth: so these are all normal guests? >> sheryl crow sang a song. >> seth: perfect. >> and then i just said to the audience, "ladies and gentlemen, my next guest is heisman trophy winner and the star of many funny movies and tv shows. please welcome mr. o.j. simpson." >> seth: oh my goodness. [ light laughter ] >> and so he comes out, and the audience thought it was an actor. >> seth: of course. >> like we were doing a comedy bit. >> seth: because why would you bring out the real o.j. simpson? [ laughter ] >> and he sits down. they realize after, oh, my god, it's really him, and they start booing. the audience starts booing. a third of the audience literally got up and walked out. >> seth: wow. >> and he sat down, and i just kept a straight faceand i said, "i don't know why they're -- it's probably me. it's probably me. you know, something i did, so don't take this personally." and i just talked football with him for four or five minutes, and then -- >> seth: i think it was a documentary. one thing i learned he thought he would just go back to his normal life after he was found innocent. >> yeah. >> seth: and do you think he had no sense that an audience would be upset to see him?
>> yes. i think he was -- he was shocked, but then i finally said to him after just four or five minutes of football talk, you know how receivers back in your day, you just caught it with your bare hands, but these days these guys wear these tight-fitting gloves. >> seth: oh, no. [ laughter ] >> and the look -- >> seth: oh, no. >> the look on his face was one of "i'm going to kill you." [ laughter ] >> seth: yes. >> then finally i just said, "did you do it?" >> seth: you asked him? >> yeah. "you did it, right? you did it. you killed her." "no, i didn't kill her." "yes, you did." "no, i didn't." "how about ron goldman?" "no, i didn't kill him either." >> seth: wow. >> and this went on -- >> seth: did it go as well as it's going now? [ laughter ] >> well, they're, like -- yes, it went for 40 minutes. >> seth: what? >> yes. it went for -- i mean, i got right into it with him. >> seth: does this tape exist? >> it exists in a vault. >> seth: wow. >> and fox decided not to on do the -- they didn't want to do a late night show at 11:00. >> seth: i wonder what of the market testing turned them away? [ laughter ] >> no, no, it was compelling. >> seth: i would imagine it's
compelling. >> this interview has never been done. and i have never seen anything like it. and they actually offered $1 million to just air it as a special. >> seth: oh, wow. >> and i said no, i don't want to do that. i don't -- and then it just felt like, exploitive, and i just said no. and so i put it in the vault. it sits in the vault to this day. no one has ever seen it. >> seth: all right. >> and i'm shocked that you brought it up, but it's like -- >> seth: well, i mean -- you know, i wanted to make sure it wasn't sort of just an urban myth. >> it's not an urban myth. no. it exists, and there you go. >> seth: all right. there we go. so i want to move on to this. so you didn't in the end have a talk show in the 90's. roseanne barr had a talk show. >> she did. >> seth: and you were a guest on the talk show. and the other guest was donald trump. >> this is where i first met him. >> seth: and this is 90's as well? >> in 1998. >> seth: okay. >> she came to new york for a week, did it in tavern on the green at central park. and so she asked me to be on the show, and i come to the greenroom, and the producer pulls me aside and says, "mr. trump is really nervous about you being on the show, and i'm afraid he is going to leave.
and if you could just talk to him and calm him down." and i'm like, you know -- it's 1998. i hardly -- i don't know even know the guy. i'm from michigan, you know? so i walk over to him, and i said, "mr. trump, it's michael moore." and i shook his hand, and it's all clammy. [ laughter ] and i don't -- i don't remember the size of the hand. >> seth: that was my question. [ laughter ] >> i just -- i just remember that it was -- he was all sweaty, and, like, i just -- "i don't want to go out there and mix it up and everything." i said, "well, i don't know what you are talking about." "well, you know, because i'm a big corporate guy, and you are like -- you made 'roger and me.'" i said, "you have nothing to worry about. come on, we're going to go out and have some fun with roseanne." i'm having to talk him off the ledge from this. [ light laughter ] you know, grow some gonads, here. >> seth: yeah. >> you know? i mean, it's kind of like -- and so we went out there, and i was very nice to him, and in the year since i thought, jeez, he is good because he played me. >> seth: oh, yeah. >> because i didn't go after him
or his real estate here or any of that -- >> seth: because he tricked you into having sympathy for him >> i felt sorry for him, and the hands were so wet. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> you know? >> seth: i want to ask about this, too. bernie sanders -- the bernie sanders campaign, he has held a lot of positions that you have held for a very long time. positions that when you first established them as your own were very far to the left of the establishment democratic view. was it strange for you to see somebody run and receive so much support that shared your outlook? >> it was wonderful. it was great. socialism was not a dirty word. liberal is now a positive word. yes, 12 years ago when i opposed the war and i was booed off the stage at the oscars, the "new york times" supported the war, the new yorkers supported the war, 29 democrats from the senate voted for the war. liberals -- i mean, i felt very much out on a left wing limb, and now just 12, 13 years later, it's like i'm in the mainstream. i'm just like a normal boring
person that believes that women should be paid the same as men, as i have always believed. [ cheers and applause ] or that we should have universal health care, or -- >> seth: yeah. i've heard this. when you are on talk shows before you go out, somebody that you are with, a friend, will give you a word that you have to say during the interview. >> yes. we actually -- my crew, we have a little talk about what word has never been said on "seth meyers." we did this the first time back 20 years ago when i was on "nightline with ted koppel." and i was in the writers room of my show, and the writer said, "see, you have to get the word 'dude' in there to ted koppel." >> seth: okay. >> you have to say "dude" to ted koppel. >> seth: gotcha. >> and then that will be our bet to see if i can work the word in, and, of course, i did that night. ted koppel is, like, "i'm not a dude." [ laughter ] and so -- and so tonight we did the same thing, and i have already said the word.
>> seth: you have already said the word. >> i've already said the secret word. well, we had to think what word has not been said on seth meyers -- on "late night with seth meyers." >> seth: can i guess what it is? >> yes. >> seth: gonads. >> damn. >> seth: yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> that's it! >> seth: well, i heard it. >> i'm retiring the game right here. >> seth: michael and i went a little long tonight. [ cheers and applause ] so look for our entire interview online. michael moore. we'll be right back with tika sumpter. >> thank you.

there is typically an "a" plot, which is the main story, and a "b" plot, which is secondary. for example, in the "friends" episode, "the one with ross's teeth," the "a" plot is that ross goes too far while trying to impress his date and over-whitens his teeth. the "b" plot is that phoebe may or may not have made out with ralph lauren, which gets rachel in trouble with her boss. you get it. "a" plot, "b" plot. [ light laughter ] well, "late night" is no different. we have the same structure on our show. for example, during a show last month, our "a" plot was me hosting a talk show telling jokes, interviewing lenny kravitz and rachel dratch. our "b" plot, however, focused on our stage manager, tom. now, in the "b" plot that night, tom booked a hot date at the same time as our taping. and that put tom in quite the pickle. now, unfortunately, because that show went long, we had to cut the "b" plot entirely from the show. but, we figured you could take a look at it tonight, so here you go. >> seth: and even before the speakers took the stage, things got off to a terrible start.
