[ laughter ] donald trump taped an episode of "the dr. oz show" yesterday. "big deal, i tape it everyday," said jeb. "i'm just kidding. i watch it live." [ laughter ] when asked by dr. oz this afternoon who he sees when he looks in the mirror, donald trump replied, "i see a 35 year old." a 35-year-old jack-o-lantern? [ laughter ] donald trump appeared on dr. oz today and said "he stays healthy on the campaign trial by getting up there and using a lot of motion." yeah, but you know who is never in great shape?
12:39 am
the guy who parks really close to the gym. it was announced on "the dr. oz show" today that donald trump's testosterone levels are high. though i don't know if we can trust that, because so is his doctor. [ light laughter ] [ light laughter ] yeah, man, you're good to go. you're president healthy, bro. hillary clinton said in an interview this morning "that donald trump has willingly aligned himself with right wing fringe group and every deplorable thing they represent." so hillary, you're sticking with the word deplorable? you feel like that's working out for you? you think mike dukakis is still wearing that helmet? a new report has found that bomb-sniffing dogs at ten different airports failed tests 52 times in the last two years. meanwhile, the drug-sniffing dogs are working double shifts and killing it. [ laughter and applause ]
12:40 am
woo! yeah, here we go. drugs there! drugs there! woo! woo! i love working at airports! hillary clinton's running mate tim kaine released his medical records yesterday and the result are in, he's a cardboard box. [ laughter ] all these health records. it's so exciting. such an exciting time to be doing comedy. so much talk about medical records. and finally rapper snoop dogg recently posted a video calling donald trump a punk ass, while donald trump recently posted a video calling snoop dogg, nelly. [ laughter and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show. for you tonight. he's one of our favorites. we're so excited to have him back on the show, senator bernie sanders is joining us tonight.

[ cheers and applause ] also, this is very exciting, we will be taking our show on the road for the very first time. we'll be going to washington, d.c. at the warner theater the week of october 10th. tickets are available now on our website. go to latenightseth.com and sign up. we would love to see you washington. now moving on, ever since the financial crash eight years ago, americans are still wary of wall street. virtually every major bank has, in some way, been tainted by allegations of corruption or malpractice. but there one bank that was supposed to be different. wells fargo. they have always had a sterling reputation as an ethical company. which bring me to a new segment we are calling "dammit." ♪ now anyone who has seen the movie, "the music man," has warm memories of the wells fargo wagon.
12:42 am
>> the wells fargo wagon. >> the wells fargo wagon? >> ♪ the wells fargo wagon is coming down the street ♪ ♪ oh please let it be for me ♪ >> seth: what are they so excited about? what's in that wagon, better outfits? [ laughter ] the dog is not that psyched. over the years, wells fargo managed to hold on to the squeaky clean image. that's still the case, right wells fargo? >> one of the country's biggest banks, wells fargo, busted for creating millions of phony bank accounts to get cs for doing that. and moving people's money around and putting it into other accounts that they didn't know about. we are talking about 5300 employees, some of these are managers, who are essentially creating ghost accounts. >> seth: dammit! [ light laughter ] they set up ghost accounts? oh i'm sorry, mr. johnson, your money died ten years ago. [ laughter ]
12:43 am
on a night much like tonight. so bank employees fraudulently creating bank accounts in customer's names. ghost accounts. and transferring their money without telling them. all so they could meet sales quotas and get bigger bonuses. please tell me it was just phony bank accounts. >> this company and the people who worked for it who got these incentives issued debit cards and pin numbers without the customer's knowledge. they also had people make fake emails. >> seth: dammit! [ light laughter ] they created fake email accounts too. oh look here, one of our customers wants to open up ten new accounts. his email is totallyrealguy@rocketmail.com. [ laughter ] but when customers notified the bank of the suspicious activities they took complaints seriously, right? >> one person said he got three new debit cards he never even asked for. when he called the bank, they told him, "oh, just throw them out." >> seth: dammit! [ light laughter ] they lied right to the customers. you guys are a bank, not the gap.
12:44 am
talking to you, sarah. that turtle neck you sold me was not slimming. [ cheers and applause ] i was happy to wear it. wore it for my new head shots. now wells fargo was at least fined $185 million. it did issue refunds to customers which must mean they also formally admitted wrongdoing, right? >> wells fargo for its part doesn't admit any wrongdoing. >> seth: dammit! [ light laughter ] you paid a fine and refunded millions of customers but you won't admit any wrongdoing. that's like buying your wife diamond earrings out of nowhere and saying, i neither confirm nor deny this is because i cheated on you. [ light laughter ] but what about that $185 million dollar fine? that's a pretty big deal right? >> we print the numbers, that fine is about maybe three days' profit for wells fargo. right? so this is something it can clearly take in stride. >> seth: dammit!
12:45 am
well, surely with over 5,000 employees involved, someone went to jail, right? >> are we going to see a very high level executive take a fall because of this? >> i mean at this point it does not look like a high level executive has stepped forward to take a fall for this. >> seth: dammit! also, that's how it works? we just wait for someone to step forward? hey, wells fargo, it's the fbi. we were just wondering, does anyone here want to go to jail? we have cable. [ light laughter ] alright, fine, nobody is going to jail but that has to be the end of the bad news, right? >> the wells fargo executive in charge of consumer banking, carrie tolstedt, is walking away with a $125 million retirement package. >> seth: oh, dammit! [ light laughter ] >> $125 million, well i bet she's not going to put it in a wells fargo account. come to think of it, where do i keep my money? oh, dammit! [ light laughter ] >> this has been "dammit." [ cheers and applause ] >> we'll be back with our friend, senator bernie sanders. ♪

[ cheers and applause ] animals as leaders has a highly anticipated new album, "the madness of many", releasing on november 11th. so be sure to pick that up. thank you for a fantastic week, matt. >> thank you seth. >> seth: our first guest tonight is the united states senator from vermont, he received more than 13 million votes in the democratic presidential primary. please welcome back to the show, our friend, senator bernie sanders. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪ how are you? [ cheers and applause ] >> good. i'm great. >> seth: good. now, i want to ask, we've had you here, this is the third time we've had you here in the last 12 months. and one difference now is, you don't have a whole secret service detail. >> that's true. >> seth: is that nicer? >> well, i wish i still had them.
12:51 am
i wish i had won the nomination. >> seth: sure. >> and i wish i was on my way to becoming president. but having said that, those guys were great, and i very much appreciated their help. but you know what, it's nice to be able to go to the grocery store and buy some strawberries without being surrounded by eight armed guys, so yeah. [ light laughter ] >> seth: that probably makes the rest of the guys buying strawberries a little edgy. and when you go to the grocery store, people must be very happy to see you. i know you're not one to brag but a recent poll came out and you're the most popular american senator right now. so when you're back, certainly in vermont, people must be so excited to see you. >> you know, vermont is a small state. kind of like a big family. only 630,000 of us. and i probably have met every one of them at one point or another. so you know, part of the crowd there. >> seth: so, we're at an interesting place right now with this election. and one of the things that i want to talk to you about is, there's been a comment floating around about trump supporters, the word is "deplorable."
12:52 am
and, i want ask you about the people supporting trump who are saying deplorable things but who also have things to genuinely be angry about. how do you feel about these people? >> i think you described it right. look, do we have racism this this country? absolutely. do we have sexism, do we have homophobia? we do. but i think the vast majority of people who support trump are people who are hurting and they're angry. and they're looking for answers. i think trump is the wrong answer. but these are people who in many cases are working longer hours for low wages. they seen their jobs go to china. they can't afford health care. and they want to know why. and you got this arrogant guy coming up there and he knows all the answers. and he lies a whole lot. and he says different things everyday. but he is giving forth a message which people are responding to. but, seth, i think as this campaign progresses, i think what people will understand is that as we look at the real issues facing the american
12:53 am
people, the decline of the american middle class income and wealth inequality, climate change. you got a guy like trump who denies the reality of climate change which the scientists tell us is the major global crisis that we face. so i think more and more people will catch on to what mitt romney, i don't often quote mitt romney, but -- [ laughter ] you know, romney was right, at least once. and that is he called trump a phony and a fraud. and i agree with that assertion. >> seth: now on that topic, one of the things trump seems to be doing, and i do think it is because of this angry white working class that has so many things to genuinely be upset about, how do you feel when you see someone like donald trump frame himself as the working class hero? >> it's pathetic and laughable. you know, here is a guy who has exploited people throughout much of his business career. here is a guy who claims how
12:54 am
concerned he is about american companies going abroad to manufacture products, a very legitimate concern and yet his own clothing manufacturing is done in other countries around the world where poor workers are being exploited. so i think that, you know, then he talks about he's going stand up with working people. he puts his business advisors council together and they're all these billionaire conservative folks. so i don't think there's any reason for anyone to believe that trump is going to stand with working people. he is a billionaire. his proposals call for massive tax breaks for the wealthiest people in this country. this is not a guy who in my view is going to represent working people. >> seth: how much do you wish you were about to debate him? >> very much. >> seth: yeah. [ cheers and applause ] yeah. >> you know, seth, i've got four kids and seven grandchildren. and this country faces just
12:55 am
enormous crises. and that's the reality. we can't run away from that. for 40 years and middle class of america has been declining, we have 46 million people living in poverty. we got 28 million people without any health insurance. we are worried about global warming. you just had a segment on wells fargo. and what you pointed out, which is true. wall street and the banking system is basically fraudulent. that's the fact. and these are the wealthiest most powerful people in this country. we got to bring our people together to tell these damn billionaires they cannot continue to destroy this country. and i wish i was part of the political process today in terms of running for president, because if elected, those are issues i would have love to have dealt with. >> seth: but you're talk about bringing people together which is, of course, what role you're going to be playing here in coming months. because obviously you're no fan of donald trump. most of your supporters when you're asked, you going to go with hillary clinton? you going to go with donald trump? they say hillary clinton. when you add people like jill stein.
12:56 am
when you add johnson it splits a little bit. what do you say to your supporters right now? what do you want them to do moving forward? because obviously they're disappointed. >> yeah, seth, this is what i would say. is look, what media does is focus on trump's personality and clinton's personality, and my personality. what is personality? we got to get beyond personality. you don't like clinton, fine. take a hard look at the issues that impact your life. what hillary clinton is saying she's going to make public colleges and universities tuition free for all families earning $125,000 or less and deal significantly with student debt. you know what? that is a very big deal in this country. she's going to double the number of community health centers in america so working class people and low income people can have access to health care. that's a big deal. she is going to address climate change. she is going to raise taxes on the rich. so what i would ask those people who voted for me, even if you have concerns about clinton, you don't like this aspect, i
12:57 am
understand that. but look at the hard issues that impact your lives, and your neighbor's lives, and then think whether or not you want donald trump to become president. and i think if you frame it in that way, people will end up voting for clinton. >> seth: and now -- [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: and then, how do you get back, if, hypothetically, and i want to talk about other hypothetical later, but if hillary wins, how does the democratic party go to those people behind donald trump, that were supporting him who are going to be angry and say, despite everything that says we believe we're the party that can help you, how do they make that approach? >> that's a very good question and the answer is the democratic party has not done enough of that. and what does that mean? it says to a working class person who's trying to get by on $10 an hour and you cannot get by on $10 an hour, you know what, you stand with us.
12:58 am
we're going to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour. you say to those 28 million people who have no health insurance and many more who are underinsured, high deductibles, high copayments, paying the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs the democratic party is going to stand up to the drug companies. and we're not going to allow their greed to continue to ripping off people who can't afford medicine. you tell, we deal with the trade issue and that is we tell corporate america that instead of investing in china you're going to have to start investing in this country and create decent paying jobs here. so to answer your question, seth, and to be very frank with you, i don't think the democratic party has been anywhere near as strong as it should be. it has got to stand up with the working people of this country who are hurting. have the guts to take on the billionaire class, these guy at wells fargo. what they did is an outrage. how many of them are going to go to jail? >> seth: zero. >> well there you go. but you smoke marijuana in this county you're going to get a criminal record. that's pretty crazy stuff.
12:59 am
>> seth: and i'd smoke marijuana if i found out that my bank was making a ghost accounts. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] when we come back i want to ask you about what the democratic party will do if it breaks the other way. we'll be right back with more from senator bernie sanders. ♪

♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back to "late night," we here with senator bernie sanders. you, rightfully so, receive a lot of credit for pulling hillary to more progressive positions than she had in the past. do you feel as though, do you have confidence that she's going to hold these positions as we go into the general? >> i do. and the reason for that is you know, she has been very public on these positions. but the second reason is, we're going to rally millions of people to make sure that those things happen. the truth of the matter is, seth, real change never takes place in this country unless millions of people at the grass roots level demand it. if you think about the history of the workers movement. of the civil rights movement, of the women's movement, of the environmental movement, of the gay movement, only way change
1:04 am
takes place is when people have the courage to stand up to the powers that be. so no matter who the president will be, there is going to be enormous pressure on that person. and our job is to rally millions of americans to say and you cannot allow wells fargo and these other banks to continue what they are doing. you cannot allow our kids to live on a planet where climate change will wreck their lives. we've got to do something. so our job is to rally the american people to push the next president who i hope and believe will be secretary clinton, to stand up for working families. >> seth: if hillary clinton wins the election -- [ cheers and applause ] how many days do you give her before you show up and make sure she is pushing towards those progressive -- [ laughter ] >> well, i think everyone is entitled to a day off. >> seth: yeah, there you go. >> we'll give her a day, but here's the point, and let me be clear, you have in washington, an incredible amount of money. people don't even appreciate how much money is coming in in
1:05 am
campaign contributions. you have right now, the koch brothers, who are literally trying to buy the united states senate. they're going to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to elect candidates who represent the wealthy and the powerful. you got lobbyists coming out of the woodwork for the drug companies, for wall street, for the military industrial complex. these guys have enormous power and the only way we effectively push them back is when millions of people stand up and really say, enough is enough. this country doesn't belong to you. it belong to us, it belongs to our kids. so we will give hillary a day off, let her rest a bit. but on the next day we are going remind her what we got passed in the democratic party platform which is the most progressive platform in the history of american politics. and we're going to go forward to implement those policies. >> seth: now i was speaking to a supporter of yours a few months ago, who was obviously
1:06 am
disappointed with how it had turned out but one of the things they've been inspired to do is run for local office. they never even thought about that as something they wanted do. and do you feel like this is the future of progressive politics? as people are understanding it's not just about the top of the ticket, it's about getting involved in a very low level and that's how you started, right? >> absolutely. first of all, we are trying very hard for people to understand just what you said. it is important that you have good local school board. good local city councils. good state legislature. and i think as a result of our campaign you're going to see many, many, many, hundreds of people running for those offices. and a, we need people in those positions who are good, and second of all you get the experience and you move up. a lot of you run for congress, you run for the senate. so i would hope that everybody understands, you know, sometimes we forget this stuff and it sounds kind of, little blasé to say it. democracy is a big deal. you know, it's a pretty new phenomenon. and people fought and died to create a country where you and you have the right to determine
1:07 am
the future. not a few people on top and what i worry very much in this country with the koch brothers, with these billionaires. is we are moving toward an oligarchic form of society. you know what i mean by that? >> seth: mmm-hmm. >> where a hand full of billionaires, control the economy, they control our political life, and all due respect, they control a lot of the media. and the only way we fight back is when people get involved in the political process, reclaim our democracy and defeat oligarchy. >> seth: what was your first election? what did you run for first? >> i'll tell you, i ran on a third party ticket in state of vermont in 1971. i ran for the united states senate and i got two votes, 2%. 2%. [ light laughter ] got more than two votes. >> seth: well, 2% in vermont is six votes, right? >> i ran a year later and i got 1%. moving in the wrong direction. >> seth: what happened? what did you do wrong the second time? >> i actually got more votes. but the turnout was larger for the general electure.
1:08 am
[ laughter ] but, there's a lesson to be learned. you know, the last time i ran for the united states senate in vermont i got 71% of the vote. so even if you lose, don't give up. stay with it. if you believe strongly, in what you're fighting for, it eventually resonates and people will respond. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: now, what do you think happened, if trump wins this election, what happens ? >> oh, please don't make me think -- >> seth: well i have to at least ask what will happen. what happens to the future of the democratic party? do you think they take this as a way to reconstruct what their message is? >> i think so. i mean i think if we can't beat donald trump then you really have to go back to the drawing board. [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> i mean, and again, if you knew me well enough, i don't go around, you know, people in
1:09 am
washington i strongly disagree with, i like personally, you know, not every conservative is a terrible person or a dishonest person. people believe different things, and that's fine. but this guy, he is a fraud, and he is a showman and if we can't beat him then i think there has to be a real reevaluation of what the democratic party is about. >> seth: and you'll be out on the road in the next coming months? >> i will be out very, very -- as strongly as i can. i just, you know, as i mentioned, i got seven grandchildren and i do not want them to be growing up under a trump presidency. and i'll tell you, it is not just the tax breaks for the rich, and not just the denial of the reality of climate change. it is, he has made bigotry, bigotry, the corner stone of his campaign. this country has struggled since its inception, in terms of what we did with the native americans. in terms of slavery, in terms of all kinds of discrimination. we have fought so hard to try to
1:10 am
become a less discriminatory society. and in many respects we have succeeded. we have come a long way. gay rights. women's rights. we have made real progress. i do not want to see this country recede and go back to where one group is scapegoating another group. that is not where we can go and i'm going to do everything that i can to prevent that from happening. >> seth: well i look forward to seeing that.

1:18 am
the way, shailene played a great role in our campaign and we appreciate that very much. [ cheers and applause ] >> it was my honor. >>bernie: what this guy did was extraordinarily brave. and it really was very impactful. it educated the american people, to the degree that we are under constant surveillance. that it is not only the government, as bad as that it, it is the private sector as well. and that we have got to fight hard for our privacy rights, the right to live our life without somebody else not watching us all the time. >> seth: you mentioned that shailene worked on the campaign. you have not been particularly political before this. >> i was the antithesis of political before bernie's campaign. i was always a grass roots activist who felt like no one in the government was listening to the voices of the people on the ground. and bernie was the first candidate, i voted for obama because my younger brother couldn't. he was like, please vote for me. but i didn't really -- >> seth: you should not trade votes like that. [ laughter ] that might technically be fraud. >> i learned a lesson.
1:19 am
>> seth: yeah. >> but, you know, it was a really interesting eye opening experience because a lot of people talk about politicians and there is the rhetoric surrounding many people, saying that they give millennials voices and bernie was the first person, whether politician or not a politician, but i felt like heard the voices of millennials. and not just millenials, for that matter. heard the voice of 99% in this country and elevated their voices with his platform. >> seth: did you, when you went into this, senator, did you think to yourself, i'm going to kill it with millennials? [ laughter ] did that -- >>bernie: at 74 years -- [ laughter ] >> seth: yup. well that's -- [ laughter ] and they found you pretty quickly. >>bernie: and here is one of the ironies. >> seth: yeah. >>bernie: i have spent a lot -- you know, obviously i was always concerned and am concerned about young people and all of those issues. i spent a lot of time fighting for senior citizens. we ended up doing terrible with senior citizens. [ laughter ] for whatever reasons. but we did great with the young people. and i think is -- these young
1:20 am
people have so much hope and vision, and desire, to see this country become what we all know it can become. and that was an extraordinary experience. >> seth: now i want to ask because you are of this millennial generation, which of the bernie supporters, it seems as though they are the slowest to migrate to hillary. what do you think the clinton campaign has to do for voters like you, of your generation, to convince them that with the current situation she is the right path? >> millennials are interested in democracy. and the beauty of living in a democracy, and the luxury, and the privilege of living in america is that we get to hold our politicians and our government accountable. and i think, because of technology and the because internet now, anyone can be an investigative journalist, you know -- within the rules and restrictions of what they find online, how much research they do. but millennials are really savvy in that way. and i think that what would benefit hillary clinton's campaign is, if she uses opportunities like for instance right now there is a pipeline
1:21 am
being built, actually obama's administration just temporarily halted construction. >> seth: this is the dakota access pipeline. >> this is the dakota access pipeline in north dakota, on native american reservations. and hillary has a platform that says she honors the sovereignty of native american nations and she wants to work with native american nations. she also has a platform with climate change and in opposition of continuing down this path with fossil fuel as in switching to renewable energy. this is a brilliant opportunity for her to stand up and show millennials where her stance is on this particular issue. i think that people want to vote for her. people just want to see that what she says is actually going to be followed through. >> seth: now you've actually spent time doing protesting this pipeline. >> yes. >> seth: what has that experience been for you being on these indian reservations? or this indian reservation? >> it's been remarkable. it's been one of the greatest experiences of my life. a lot of people don't know this. there is a lot of talk out there about violence on the front lines. i was there for a month and a half and there was not one ounce of violence. for the first time in history,
1:22 am
since before colonization, when before we colonized america, native tribes were at war with one another, many times. this is the first time that you have this many tribes gathered in one place, standing together united, to stand up for not only their rights but human rights. and the access to clean water. all they are doing is protecting clean water. so ultimately, you know, obama's administration just stepped in. department of justice, the army corps of engineers and said they're going to temporarily halt construction. that's beautiful. but that's not a win. a win is when they say we're not moving this pipeline to some other location to affect clean water, but we're going to stop it. we're going to nix it like we did with keystone xl. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i also have a question. because you're a millennial, i want to ask one more thing. this is an argument my wife and i have all the time. do you think i could pass as a millennial? [ laughter ] like if i wore the right cool clothes and stuff? >> well, i mean, i'm not one for labels and definitions and hard
1:23 am
lines and boundaries, so why not? >> seth: i'm going to stop through and take it as a yes. [ light laughter ] >> wait, wait, wait. but really quick. i brought you guys shirts that say "i stand with standing rock," which is the reservation being affected by this pipeline right now. >> seth: great. [ cheers and applause ] thank you so much. >> yeah. >> seth: and thank you so much for being here, both of you. i think you are obviously both symbols of what people can do in this country if they care very much about what they believe in. so thank you so much for being here.
