[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening everybody. yeah, i'm seth meyers. this is "late night", how's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] that's good to hear. in that case let's not waste any time. lets get to the news. donald trump said this afternoon that hillary clinton's foreign policy plans are wreckless, trigger happy, and very
unstable. then he said, oh, wait, wait, hold on, yep, yep, my bad, these are mine, these are mine. [ laughter ] hillary clinton's running mate tim kaine criticized donald trump yesterday during a speech in north carolina. saying the prospect of donald trump as commander-in-chief scares him to death. then again, look at tim kaine, you could scare him to death with a bicycle bell. [ laughter ] ding ding, woah! starbucks ceo howard schultz endorsed hillary clinton for president today, at least we think that's who he meant. [ laughter ] [ cheers ] that's right, starbucks ceo howard schultz endorsed hillary clinton but i thought for sure he'd go for the pumpkin spiced one. [ cheers ]
donald trump said last night that on his first day in office he would give top military brass 30 days to submit a plan to defeat isis and then whoever submits the best plan would move on to the final round. [ laughter ] apple unveiled the new iphone today which it says is water resistant. this could be a devastating blow for the big bag of rice industry. [ laughter ] i don't think it works. i don't actually think that works. >> this next joke is a very smart joke. sometimes we write jokes that are very smart and not everyone will get this joke because it's very smart. but don't feel bad, it's just a very smart joke. after the co-founder of latinos for trump movement said there will be taco trucks on every corner if hillary clinton is elected a hispanic group has started a program called guac the vote. which hopes to turn taco trucks
into voter registration centers and so far, turnout has been sal-sational. [ light laughter ] [ applause ] a café in australia is serving a coffee drink called ass kicker which has 80 times the amount of caffeine of a standard shot of espresso. said one customer [ beep ] [ beep ] [ beep ] [ flatline ] [ cheers and applause ] police in connecticut on friday discovered a cache of 600 marijuana plants growing in the backyard of a day care center. said one of the kids, it's not how you get to sesame street, [ laughter ] it's the journey man. [ laughter ]
[ applause ] we were brought to you by a letter. a new study shows that a small percentage of americans take medication designed for pets instead of getting a prescription from their doctor. said one owner, yeah, uh -- my dog's been having trouble getting an erection. [ laughter ] so if i could just get some boner pills for dogs. [ light laughter ] and finally, police in new york are looking for a thief who has been stealing dozens of boxes of teeth whitening strips and rogaine from at least nine local pharmacies. they even have a sketch of their suspect. [ light laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a fantastic show for you tonight. he is one of our favorites.
he is the star of amazon's fantastic television show "transparent", jeffrey tambor is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] his new play, "plenty" opens this month at new york city's public theater, and he stars in fx's "the strain." he's a fantastic actor, first time on the show, corey stoll will be here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] and we will have music from hailee steinfeld tonight. that's gonna be great. a fantastic performance for you. uh, we had a nice holiday weekend last week, did everybody have a nice holiday? [ cheers ] i had a great weekend with my wife and my baby, my new baby. we went to -- thank you. we went to martha's vineyard and we drove up. and when you go to martha's vineyard, it's an island, you got to take a ferry. and we're driving and as we get to the ferry, the first thing you do is you come up to a booth. and as you pull up to the booth you give them your name and registration so they know that your car can get on the boat. so i pull up and this happens sometimes.
the guy recognized me but not from where. he didn't -- he went oh -- help me out, who are you? which is the worst because it stinks having to participate in your own being recognized. oh, i'm seth myers. and he said, "oh, that's it, i'm a huge fan." which can't possibly be true. [ laughter ] if you can't recognize -- like, like, bruce springsteen doesn't come on stage and people aren't like, oh, who is that? so, but he's very nice. we have a nice conversation. then i pull off to a second booth where another person is going to tell me where to park while we wait for the ferry. and i pull up, and it's an 18-year-old kid i would guess, and he's on the phone. amd as we pull up, he hangs up and says "oh, that was actually a phone call of somebody telling me you were pulling up." and i said, "okay, cool." and said, but i have to say, i don't know who you are.
and again, the worst part about this is my wife is so enjoying it. [ laughter ] so happy. she's so happy to be seeing it. so yeah, they just called and said you are coming but i don't know you who are. i said oh, i'm seth meyers. and he said, yeah, that's what they said and i don't know who you are. so then, the thing that happens where i start panicking and then giving him -- i'm desperately now giving him my resume for some feedback that i never asked for in the first place. oh, yeah, i have my own talk show, nothing. i used to be on "saturday night live." then this 18-year-old, when i said i used to be on "saturday night live," says, oh, that's quite an accomplishment. [ laughter ] so mad. [ applause ] then, everything about this person was pleasant except for how irritated he was making me. so then he says, oh you pull into that lane. i said, all right, thank you
very much. and as i pull out he yells after me, continued success to you. [ laughter ] again, made my wife's day. moving on. as the presidential campaign heads into the final stretch both candidates are facing questions about their character and integrity. but one candidate's alleged scandals seems to be getting more attention than the others. for more on this, it is time for a closer look. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] first, there's hillary clinton, who spent the primary fending off a challenge from bernie sanders by casting herself as a champion of the working class. but since then according to the "new york times" she's been spending most of her time raising money from ultra rich donors, including a recent fundraiser at a water front hamptons estate where she danced along side jimmy buffet, jon bon jovi and paul mccartney and joined in a sing-along finale to "hey jude." soon to be known as the least boot legged copy of "hey jude." oh, dude, you got hear this, mccartney, jovi, buffet and
clinton, hampton '16. [ light laughter ] now hillary reportedly used the specter of a trump presidency to raise money, telling the crowd of mega rich donors, quote, i stand between you and the apocalypse. of course it was the hamptons so the apocalypse is technically when they run out of rose. and while hillary has spent most of the summer avoiding reporters, she's apparently been much more accessible to the children of rich donors for a donation of $2,700 the children under 16 of donors at an event last month could ask mrs. clinton a question. which explains why wolf blitzer was spotted wearing a holister t-shirt and riding a razor scooter. [ laughter ] now the reason hillary spent so little time talking to reporters over the summer is that she was likely to face questions about her e-mails or the clinton foundation both of which have been a drag on her poll numbers. last week those problems got even worse when the fbi released notes from its interview with hillary about her use of a private e-mail server. >> the release of these redacted papers tells us more than we've
ever known about the fbi's investigation of hillary clinton's e-mail controversy. >> one of the most striking things that we learned in these documents is that clinton used 13 different mobile devices while secretary of state. and at least two of them were destroyed by an aide to former president bill clinton who actually smashed them with a hammer. >> seth: now, to be fair, those were blackberries and anyone who has ever used a blackberry has wanted to smash it with a hammer. [ light laughter ] a blackberry should come with a hammer. and then there was the fact hillary told investigators she never intentionally mishandled e-mails marked confidential because she didn't know what the letter "c" stood for on those e-mails. >> among the revelations clinton telling the fbi more than three dozen times she couldn't remember something including some briefings on how to handle sensitive information and that she didn't know the letter "c" on an e-mail meant confidential. >> seth: that's right, she didn't know that "c" stood for confidential, but you know who does know that "c" stands for
confidential? donald trump who tweeted lying hillary clinton told the fbi that she did not know the "c" marking on documents stood for "classified." how can this be happening? you know, it's so great. [ cheers and applause ] it's so great, that when trump is wrong he does us the favor of highlighting it by putting it in all caps. [ laughter ] it's only a matter of time until he tweets our best president was our first president, abraham lincoln. [ light laughter ] but of course, leave it to trump to take an issue that's been hurting hillary in the polls and turn it into a bizarre conspiracy theory fever dream. last night at a rally in north carolina for example, he implied that the i.t. aide who set up hillary clinton's server who pleaded the fifth and who is very much alive may actually be dead. >> she doesn't even remember whether or not she was instructed on how to use e-mails. but that's in addition to the guy who set up the server, remember him?
and he pleaded the fifth -- he pleaded the fifth -- what are we going to do with this guy? what happens? he pleaded the fifth. right? he pleaded the fifth. where is he? where is he? is he living? where is he? he pleaded the fifth and that was the end we never heard about him again. >> not hearing about the i.t. guy doesn't mean he's dead. [ laughter ] it just means he's the i.t. guy. they famously live in the shadows. you forget they're even there, until you spill juice on your keyboard and then they just appear behind you. [ laughter ] and of course the emails aren't the only there controversy hillary's dealing with. there's also the ongoing saga of the clinton foundation and its ties to the state department while she was secretary of state. now some emails suggest donors to the foundation may have received special access to the state department but there is no evidence the state department ever did any favors for them. now compare that to another
foundation you may have heard a lot less about, the trump foundation. now one reason you probably heard less about it is because it is not exactly clear what the trump foundation does. the clinton foundation provides life-saving care to aids patients. while the trump foundation once gave $250 to the special olympics and $100 to the march of dimes. did he think the name meant you could only give dimes? [ laughter ] as it turns out the trump foundation has been implicated in legitimately illegal donation to a politician who was considering fraud suit against the trump university at the time. >> last week the washington post reported the foundation was fined by the irs for violating tax law. for a $25,000 donation to a campaign group tied to florida attorney general, pam bondy. >> now this gift came around the time that bondy was thinking about opening a fraud investigation into trump university. >> bondy eventually decided not to pursuit the investigation. critics suggest that trump was essentially giving her money to look the other way.
>> seth: irony is trump university offers a class called looking the other way. [ laughter ] so trump made a donation to a politician thinking about investigating him for fraud and was fined by the irs for it but if you ask trump the two have nothing do with each other. >> i never spoke to her, first of all, she is beyond reproach. she's a fine person. never spoke to her about it at all. many of the attorney generals turned that case down because i will win that case in court. but many attorney generals throughout the country turned that down. i never spoke to her about it. >> seth: poor mike pence. he looks like trumps straight laced southern lawyer who can't get him to shut up. what my client meant to say was -- i got this mike, i'm guilty and i'm best at being guilty. everyone says so. [ laughter ] so trump insists the donation was not a quid pro quo just a show of support for florida's attorney general but it wasn't just the trump foundation that donated to bondy while she was considering investigating trump. trump and his daughter ivanka each gave $500 to bondy's campaign in the fall of 2013 as well.
because everyone knows there's three things ivanka trump cares about. the real estate business, high-end fashion and down ballot florida politics. [ laughter ] so trump claims he got nothing in return for that donation to bondy but the problem is he spent the entire primary season openly bragging about how he was able to buy politicians and get whatever he wanted from them by giving them money. >> i've given to democrats, i've given to hillary, i've given to everybody. because that was my job. i got to give to them. because when i want something, i get it. when i call, they kiss my ass. i give to everybody. when they call, i give. and you know what? when i need something from them, two years later, three years later, i call them, they are there for me. >> what did you get from hillary clinton and nancy pelosi? >> well i'll tell you what, with hillary clinton i said be at my wedding and she came to my wedding. you know why? she had no choice. because i gave. [ laughter ] >> think about how sad that is. he is bragging that he had to pay people to come to his
wedding. [ applause ] and i'm pretty sure hillary wasn't the only one who was there for the money. oh, no, come on, guys. it's too far. you guys. [ laughter ] and yet after months of accusing hillary clinton of engaging in pay to play at the clinton foundation and calling for her to be in prison, trump supporters including former federal prosecutor's chris christie and rudy giuliani are brushing off these allegations against trump as completely innocuous. i guess they'll just defend anything trump does or as trump himself put it -- >> they kiss my ass. >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: we'll be right back with jeffery tambor everybody. ♪ mom,
i have to tell you something. dad, one second i was driving and then the next... they just didn't stop and then... i'm really sorry. i wrecked the subaru. i wrecked it. you're ok. that's all that matters.

♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so fred, if you're just making this up, if you haven't seen every tv show that's on television right now, now's the time to tell me. >> fred: i've seen everything. [ light laughter ] >> seth: okay. >> fred: i watch it all. >> seth: so tell me about "cheer squad." >> fred: "cheer squad"? >> seth: yeah. >> fred: that is a, it's a reality show, it's like a house, it's a house making show but what they do is, they destroy houses, right? [ light laughter ] so you have you know, a family or a guy or something and he's like this is my house, and their like oh, what do you want done to it? so they send him away, right on vacation. and when he goes away, they just carefully pull everything apart. they just take down the house. pull everything away until there is nothing. and then there's like a cheering squad, there's people who cheer. so the guy comes back and he looks at the house and the people cheering, and he is like, why are you cheering? what are you cheering about? my house is gone. i really thought you were going to build stuff on top of this.
and that's what it is. it's a different family every week. [ laughter ] >> seth: so it doesn't resolve it, so the ending is someone's house is gone. >> fred: yes. >> seth: forever? >> fred: forever. and so the people who destroyed it, they are gone too. it's just the people who are cheering, left over. >> seth: oh. so he can't take any legal recourse because the people who tore down the house are long gone. >> it's almost like it's his fault for getting into it, more than anything, yeah. yeah. >> seth: that's great. >> fred: do you think that's great? >> fred: no. >> seth: it doesn't, it seems like a sad show. i don't know if i'd want to watch it. >> fred: the cheering is so well done. [ laughter ] that's the thing, is like these are professional cheerers. they really -- >> seth: give it up for fred armisen, everybody.

[ light laughter ] i mean, it's a vampire kid. >> yeah, yeah. no he deserves it. >> seth: he deserves it. yeah. but it must be hard when you have a kid. >> it's for science, you know. >> seth: i like, by the way, basically you're admitting that before you had a kid you were fine wailing on him. [ laughter ] i mean before i had a kid, i'd throw anybody in a sack and just go to town. >> with relish. >> seth: with relish, yeah. >> yeah, no, i had no morals at all, but now, you know, i got this responsibility. and you know, i have little -- we film in toronto, so i had little facetime with him and go beat this child. and i was sort of holding -- i was holding my punches. and they said, no, it's okay. go. he's a stunt kid.
[ laughter ] and i was like -- he's still a kid. >> seth: yeah. >> he's still like 12-years-old. it's like, no he's a stunt kid, so that's okay. >> seth: are stunt kids sort of tough and jaded like regular stunt men? is he like "keep it coming, boss." [ laughter ] >> exactly. >> seth: really, they are? >> well they're a whole family, it's like sort of circus. >> seth: oh they come from a stunt family. there you go. >> and they're sort of showing off their scars. >> seth: oh my goodness. well hopefully your son won't go into that line of business. [ light laughter ] so, now, i've heard it said that you have said that your mother, obviously her son is an actor so she's gonna see him do different things, she would prefer to see you in a sex scene than see your character get killed. now being a parent do you understand that? >> yep, definitely. i think that's probably a pretty good set of priorities to have. i've seen my son naked. >> seth: sure. >> i'm not ashamed to admit that. [ light laughter ] i'm very comfortable with his naked body. i think i will continue to be, hopefully. >> seth: yeah. >> but -- yesterday, i had the first experience of losing him.
i just went around the corner to the kitchen to get a glass of water, and i came back five seconds later and he was gone. >> seth: now based on your show, is your first thought vampires? [ laughter ] do you say, oh, my god they're getting back at me for wailing on that kid? >> that's right. i will have to dispatch it. >> seth: so what happened? where was he? was he just -- >> he was -- i went around to the stairs. not there. he was under the table. >> seth: okay, got you. >> my wife is learning about this actually now for the first time. [ laughter ] >> seth: i'm sorry, i'm sorry we had to bust you like that. so your show, guillermo del toro, the fantastic visionary behind "pan's labyrinth." so he created the show and he's comes on set every now and then. he's very connected to the show, yeah? >> yeah, yeah. he's there. he's probably more connected to the visual aspects of the show. and occasionally he'll actually direct these sequences, but it always slows things down incredibly. >> seth: because he's a perfectionist or -- >> no, because the stunt guys get a little too -- the prop guys --
>> seth: oh yeah. >> get a little too excited. >> seth: sure. >> and normally if somebody is dead, they'll sort of spray a little blood on the ground. but then they -- when guillermo comes to set, they roll out the 55 gallon drum. >> seth: oh, they want -- guillermo gets the good blood. >> yeah, exactly. and lots of it. he's not a minimalist. and so they're excited to sort of impress him. >> seth: a big shift, which i think speaks to your range as an actor, you also did shakespeare in the park this summer. >> i did. >> seth: had you done that before? >> no, never. >> seth: first time. >> yeah. >> seth: so what is it like doing that kind of play in an open space like that? have you ever performed outside like that or any at all? >> no, i mean, you know, maybe you know in college out in the arb or something but, not in front of 2,000 people. >> seth: and what's it like? is it a great scene? >> it's the most magical place to perform in the world. it really is. you've got the skyline behind you and everybody's there in this incredible spirit of
communing with new york and with the arts. >> seth: that's really great. now you started acting when you were very young. and i -- is this true? not that this is wrong, but your early acting coach maybe thought that you were a little heavier maybe back then. >> oh, yeah, i was morbidly obese. >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] and was it that your acting coach sort of, or teacher, i should say? >> well you know, it was sort of a time when we were getting out of school i went to the laguardia high school for performing arts. and we had like a little showcase afterwards for agents and things, and we were trying to decide on what scene to do. they said, well, how about the elephant man or maybe hunchback of notre dame. >> seth: how old were you? how old were you? >> 18-years-old. >> seth: on no. >> so i sort of saw the types of characters that i was going to get funneled into. >> seth: yeah. >> that was a good motivation in losing the weight.
>> seth: there you go. this is also interesting to me. you worked on the other side. you worked in a casting office when you were a younger actor? >> yeah. >> seth: was that helpful to see what actors had to go through when they actually came in and auditioned and you were on the other side of the table? >> yeah, yeah, i mean it's a cliché that everybody tells young actors when they're coming up. it's not about you. you know it's not a judgment on you as a person or an artist. it's just you weren't right for the part. but to actually see that, you know, from the other side of the table is, it really -- >> seth: and it's true. like, that is true. but i heard you had to do something a little depressing with the head shots. >> yeah. so they would get a lot of head shots just sent to the casting office. and you can either store them all. >> seth: sure. >> or you can get rid of them. >> seth: yeah. >> and so my job once a week was to -- and it took about an hour a week to shred all the head shots and resumes and so i felt like such a traitor to my people. >> seth: exactly.
>> you know just shredding peoples dreams. >> seth: the imagery, you were literally shredding their dreams. [ light laughter ] well i'm sure a lot of them turned out just fine. and you certainly did as well. congratulations on everything. congrats on the show. [ cheers and applause ] corey stoll everybody.
