♪ >> from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight, america ferrera. from "snatched," actor ike barinholtz. featuring the 8g band with josh dion. >> ladies and gentlemen, se meyers. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, everybody. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] so good to hear. so good to hear on a monday. in that case, let's get to the news. in a recent reuters interview, president trump reflected on his first 100 days in office saying, quote, i thought it would be easier. what made you think it was going to be easy?
12:38 am
[ light laughter ] this is what it did to a smart person. [ laughter ] by the time you're out of office, you're going to look like the toxic avenger. [ laughter ] president trump said yesterday that being president has been a big burden on his family. yes, but somehow we manage, said melania from her penthouse in new york. [ light laughter ] in an interview today, president trump questioned why america fought the civil war, even worse, then he questioned whom america fought in the civil war. [ light laughter ] wait, i know this one. was it china? [ laughter ] that's right. president trump questioned why america fought the civil war. you know, at this rate the only way trump is going to get a second term is if he's held back. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] all f's? i flunked everything? [ cheers and applause ]
12:39 am
i got a b-plus in phys ed. [ light laughter ] president trump published an op-ed in the "washington post" on saturday to promote the accomplishments of his first 100 days in office. but in retrospect, he probably bought a little too much space. [ light laughter ] southwest airlines has announced it will no longer overbook its flights while united says it will now match up flight attendants and passengers by weight class to make for fairer fights. [ light laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] good progress. according to the reuters, president trump has a button on his desk that he uses to order a coke. of course, he thinks it orders a nuclear strike but once he gets the coke in his hand, he forgets what he was so worked up about. [ laughter and applause ] scientists have developed a new robotic drill that could conduct brain surgery in two and a half minutes, because that's what you're aiming for when you get brain surgery, the speed record.
12:40 am
[ light laughter ] today was may day, although honestly i've been saying that every day since the inauguration. mayday! mayday! [ cheers and applause ] and finally, an arizona man was recently arrested for smuggling 67 pounds of marijuana. for reference, here's what 67 pounds of marijuana looks like. [ light laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we've got a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] you know her from nbc's "superstore" our friend, america ferrera is back on the show tonight. [ cheers and applause ] always a delight to talk to her. also, he's in a hilarious new movie with amy schumer and goldie hawn, "snatched," ike barinholtz, my dear friend. [ cheers and applause ] ike barinholtz is joining us. so we're going to have a really good time tonight. before we get to all of that, the last few days of
12:41 am
donald trump's presidency have been very revealing. he has, among other things, feuded with the press, admitted that being president is harder than he thought, praised authoritarian rulers, and made bizarre comments about the civil war. for more on this it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: as you may recall, trump's positions on most issues during the campaign weren't all that clear. but there was one thing he was very clear about, and that was that being president would be easy. >> we're going to make america great again. it's going to be easy. it's going to be easy. it's so -- it's going to be easy. >> believe me, the jobs are coming back, folks. that's going to be so easy. >> you're going to have such great health care at a tiny fraction of the cost, and it's going to be so easy. >> they don't understand it. they said, but how do you get them to pay? i said, it's so easy. and you understand. just rely on me. okay? so easy. that's so easy. >> seth: people who are actually reliable don't have to say the words rely on me. [ light laughter ]
12:42 am
if you ask your buddy to pick you up from the airport and he says rely me, get ready for dinner at cinnabon. [ light laughter ] of course the story of the first 100 days has been trump's child like naiveté colliding with reality. in fact, trump asked, without shame, admitted the basic aspects of the job have turned out to be harder than he thought. like health care or china's relationship with north korea. >> it's an unbelievably complex subject. nobody knew that health care could be so complicated. [ light laughter ] >> mr. trump said, he told his chinese counterpart he believed beijing could easily take care of the north korea threat. mr. xi then explained the history of china and korea. mr. trump said, and i'm quoting the president here, "after listening for ten minutes, i realized it's not so easy." [ light laughter ] >> seth: the president is literally being tutored by foreign leaders. [ light laughter ] and ater he taught me about the history of china and north korea, he helped me with my math homework, which was very -- [ light laughter ] and while he's at it, maybe president xi could give trump an american history lesson too, because today when trump was asked about his supposed model
12:43 am
for the presidency, andrew jackson, he went on a bizarre tangent about the civil war and jackson, who died 16 years before the war started. >> i mean, had andrew jackson been a little bit later, you wouldn't have had the civil war. he was really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the civil war. he said, there's no reason for this. people don't realize the civil war -- you think about it, why? people don't ask that question, why was there the civil war? why could that one not have been worked out? [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. [ laughter and applause ] people -- people don't ask that question. [ cheers and applause ] no one ever asked why was there the civil war. [ light laughter ] and who can forget those searing letters from soldiers on the battlefield? ♪ dearest elizabeth, i write to you from the front lines where the civil war rages on for whatever reason. [ light laughter ]
12:44 am
today i bayoneted my owner brother, for what purpose, he cried out and i, of course could only respond, i do not know. nobody knows. [ light laughter ] general grant informed us today we will be marching on to gettysburg, why? what's there i asked. [ light laughter ] he shrugged, confused. who knows he said and cited the famous words of our current president, andrew jackson, there's no reason for this. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] so trump clearly, clearly does not have a firm grasp on the basic aspects of being president, let alone basic facts about american history. and now he's essentially admitting that he's in over his head telling a reporter that he didn't expect the job of president to be this hard. >> i loved my previous life. i loved my previous life. i have so many things going. i actually, this is more work than in my previous life. i thought it would be easier. i thought it was more of a -- i'm a details oriented person, i think you would say that.
12:45 am
but i do miss my old life. this -- i like to work, so that's not a problem, but this is actually more work. [ laughter ] >> seth: you thought the presidency would be easier than being a game show host? [ laughter ] there's a reason abraham lincoln is on the 5 instead of alex trebek. [ laughter and applause ] although i have to say, i have to say -- that this, this is the most absurd part of trump's answer. >> i'm a details-oriented person. i think you would say that. >> seth: no. [ laughter ] i would not say that. [ light laughter ] no one thinks details are your strong suit. [ light laughter ] and i'm not even talking about the little details i'm talking about things like why did the civil war happen or you know, which country did i just bomb? >> we've just launched 59 missiles heading to iraq. >> headed to syria? >> yes, heading towards syria. [ laughter ] >> seth: yes, yes, syria, but
12:46 am
you know, iraq, spoiler alert. [ laughter and applause ] now -- now, you might think -- you might think a president as unqualified as trump would show some humility, instead, he spent the last few days as usual, attacking the media. today, he abruptly ended an interview with cbs's john dickerson after once again, making his baseless claim that then president obama had him surveilled but refusing to provide any evidence. all dickerson did was try to get trump to explain what his own words meant, but trump was not having it. >> you saw what happened with surveillance and i think that was inappropriate. >> what's that mean, sir? >> you can figure that out yourself. >> well, i -- the reason i ask is you called him sick and bad? >> look, you can figure it out yourself. >> but you stand by that claim about how -- >> i don't stand by anything i just -- you can take it the way you want. [ light laughter ] >> but i'm asking you. because you don't want it to be fake news. i want to hear it from president trump. >> you don't have to ask me. you don't have to ask me. >> why not?
12:47 am
>> because i have my own opinions, you can have your own opinions. >> but i want to know your opinions, you're the president of the united states. >> that's enough, thank you. [ light laughter ] thank you very much. >> seth: you know, dramatic exits are definitely less dramatic when you stay in the same room and just sit down. [ laughter ] you can't fire me, i quit. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] maybe trump is just frustrated by the fact that despite his many promises he has very little to show for his first 100 days. in fact, his only real accomplishment seems to be turning the oval office into something of a man cave. a reporter for the financial times relayed this anecdote from a recent interview with trump. sitting across from donald trump in the oval office, my eyes are drawn to a little red button on a box that sits on his desk this isn't a nuclear button, is it, i joke, pointing. no, no. everyone thinks it is, trump says on cue. before leaning over and pressing it to order some cokes. everyone does get a little nervous when i press that button. [ light laughter ]
12:48 am
no, no, no, that's not the nuclear button. the nuclear button is right next to it. it's also small and red, but i remember which one it is because it's on the right, and i have the right to use nuclear weapons. of course, i also have the right to have a coke in the middle of the day because i'm the president and i don't have to worry about it the sugar because i have the best dentist. [ light laughter ] i mean, this guy, he's amazing and he's right about everything, which is why i keep a right button to the right of my coke button that calls my dentist. do you want me to call him right now? [ explosions ] [ laughter ] [ applause ] so trump doesn't seem to have much knowledge of or interest in things like governing or american history. but there's one think trump's very interested in, and that's his own electoral victory. because when trump called reporters into the oval office to discuss the accomplishments of his first 100 days, the only actual actual accomplishment he had to offer was the act of becoming president. and accomplishment he bragged about in the middle of a conversation about chinese president, xi jinping. >> we were talking as i mentioned earlier about president xi and
12:49 am
that relationship, and then he sort of interrupted himself and handed out this map of the electoral college and said that these were the latest figures of the areas in the country that he had won in 2016. and there were three of us in the interview as i said, and he had a copy for each of us. i think he just wanted to relish in the fact that this map looks good for him. and he said, you know, the red is obviously us. and the red are the areas in the country that he won. >> seth: and in fact i even colored in the map myself. [ laughter ] and if you noticed, i stayed within the lines which everyone says is the hardest part. [ light laughter ] and i did it all in under a hundred days. now, as troubling as that that is, trump has also spent a lot of time lately praising authoritarian rulers with terrible human rights records. for example, he recently released a statement congratulating turkey's president for referendum that gave him expansive new powers
12:50 am
and in interviews over the weekend trump praised north korea's kim jong-un multiple times, calling him a pretty smart cookie and saying, "if it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, i would absolutely. i would be honored to do it." you'd be honored? he's very misunderstood. you'd like him, we should call him. i think it's this button. [ explosions ] [ applause ] and kim jong-un wasn't the only -- wasn't the only authoritarian trump praised this week. and on saturday he spoke with president rodrigo duterte of the philippines. duterte's been accused of running death squads and has bragged that he has personally murdered people. like when he said, quote, "i will pick you up in a helicopter to manila and i throw you out on the way. i've done it before. why would i not do it again?" it's stories like that that earned duterte the nickname, united airlines. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] now, duterte has since claimed he was joking. nonetheless despite his dismal human rights record, the white house issued a statement saying, trump and duterte had a very
12:51 am
friendly conversation and the president trump invited president duterte to the white house. so if you're a journalist covering the white house when duterte visits and hear donald trump say this -- >> let's give them a helicopter ride, okay? [ light laughter ] >> seth: run! [ laughter and applause ] so to recap a president who's in over his head is fighting with the media, remising about his election night victory, inviting authoritarian rulers to the white house and also, maybe doesn't know why the civil war happened. donald, do you still stand by your claim that the presidency would be easy. >> i don't stand by anything. [ light laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with more "late night," everybody.

[ light laughter ] >> seth: i'm very familiar, yeah. [ light laughter ] i feel like there were shows that used to deal with societal
1:06 am
issues but because they had an all white cast, it would always have to have a guest star would show up. like if we want to talk about this, we'd have to have, you know, the person outside our demographic would have to show up for an episode. we'd deal with that. but then we'd sort of send them on their way. [ light laughter ] like well, we took care of racism, goodbye. [ light laughter ] >> that's so sad. >> seth: yeah. >> that's very sad. >> seth: i want to talk about this. the last time you were here, which i thought was very fun. you guys had gone -- like taken a cast trip to vegas, which was exciting. >> yes. >> seth: you guys rocked it out. but i'm very sad to hear just year later, you guys are no longer fun. >> we don't like each other anymore. no, we're aging in dog years. we're like now we get together for pajama parties, it's like not vegas anymore. we got together for the oscars and all wore our pajamas cause that's how lazy we are now. >> seth: all right, well that's okay though. you know, you mature. and you guys all have jobs so that's okay to, yeah. >> yes, yes. >> seth: do people then bring their pajamas and change at whoever's house it was? >> no, you showed up in the pajamas. >> seth: really? >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: so i guess in l.a. it's just totally normal to walk to your car in pajamas and drive somewhere?

you can do whatever. >> seth: it's harder in new york i guess, 'cause you'd have to be in the pajamas on the subway and stuff. [ light laughter ] >> yeah, but in new york, like no one would think twice in new york, right. >> seth: no one would think twice, that's right. that's the difference. in l.a. fewer people see you, and here, everyone sees you and nobody cares. [ light laughter ] >> in l.a., nobody, unless you're like rihanna, no one cares who you are. >> seth: yeah, so you could wear pajamas. you could wear just the pajama top, you would be fine. [ light laughter ] so, you directed an episode. >> i did. >> seth: and you directed an episode that was about your character actually went and confronted an internet troll. >> yes. >> seth: and the internet troll had a house full of rabbits. >> yes. >> seth: and you tweeted that that was very challenging for you to be around rabbits. >> i did not know until -- >> seth: here you are with a bunch of -- and is that neil casey? >> yes, that's neil casey. >> seth: fantastic actor, funny guy. >> i did not know until this very scene that i was terrified of rabbits. >> seth: really? [ laughter ] >> yeah, i had no idea. i thought, "oh, 25 rabbits in a room, ha ha, they're going to hump like rabbits, like that
1:08 am
will be so funny." turns out instead of humping they tried to kill each other. >> seth: oh really? >> like they go at it and there's no like -- you can't train a rabbit, like or if they weren't well-trained rabbits. [ laughter ] and i didn't realize until i stepped into the room, i don't want to be in this room with 25 rabbits. >> seth: so you hadn't, it just turns out at this point in your life you had not crossed paths with rabbits? >> i'd never been in a room with 25 rabbits to this point. >> seth: i guess i haven't either, i shouldn't judge you, like, "how have you not been in a room wiith 25 rabbits"? [ light laughter ] >> so it was definitely the most challenging day. just trying to get -- >> seth: now you're acting and you're directing and you have 25 rabbits. were you having to yell "cut" during scenes because the rabbits were scaring you? >> i would mostly just like, when i yelled, they knew to reset the cameras. >> seth: when you like, as a director, i know you have to then go in and look at the footage and edit. were you surprised at how scared you were when you actually watched the footage? >> yeah. i was terrified. i ruined like every take.
1:09 am
[ light laughter ] and they said, america, you missed the point of this scene. the point of the scene is not that amy's afraid of the rabbits. [ light laughter ] and that's like what the whole scene became. >> seth: so ultimately the social you guys attach for this episode is being afraid of rabbits. >> yes, yes. >> seth: for people who have a lapine fear. [ light laughter ] >> it's real but then people -- when i said that i was afraid of the rabbits, people online got very mad at me, that i was afaid of the rabbits. >> seth: so it came full circle because the episode is about internet trolls. [ laughter ] >> there you go, yes. >> seth: well done. very well done. i like that. [ applause ] activism has always been a big part of your life. you were at the women's march. the women's march at the day of the inauguration. [ cheers and applause ] day before? >> day after. >> seth: day after? >> day after. >> seth: you were in d.c. you spoke to a crowd of over a million people, right. >> yeah. >> seth: and you're not donald trumping us. they were actually there, right? you're not like donald trumping and being like, "there were so many people there." they were actually there. [ light laughter ] >> they were. it was huge. it was the biggest crowd, seth, let me tell you. there were like 1.2 million
1:10 am
people there. and i had never been in a crowd of 1.2 million people. >> seth: what a year for you. 1.2 million people, 25 rabbits. [ light laughter ] >> like i'm just -- bigger and bigger crowds. >> seth: yeah. >> and i didn't know what to expect, i don't think anybody did. it was the day after the inauguration and a lot of people were feeling a lot of things and i didn't know what to expect. but, you know, there were times where it felt very -- you felt the gravitas and you felt the reason why we were there. and then there were times where it felt like this amazing hopeful party. as i'm sure everyone who went out and marched with hundreds and thousands of people felt. it felt good to know that people were in it together, and it was just infectious. it was an amazing day. >> seth: you know, obviously i think a lot of people were worried because of the proximity to the inauguration crowd, which obviously was a very different crowd. and yet it seemed incredible peaceful and wonderful. >> i don't think there was a single arrest or a single altercation in all of d.c. i don't know that for a fact.
1:11 am

[ laughter ] anyway, i want to ask about the harness project. tell us about that. >> yes. so harness is an organization i started with my husband and our friend, wilber valderrama. and it was about convening people with front line activists to hear what the authentic stories about was happening in our most vulnerable communities. and so, i think right now is a time where we all fell this unprecedented energy, people want to take action, people want to take part. but it's so overwhelming that you don't know where to begin, right? and so where our entry point is just having conversations with the people on the front lines of
1:12 am
these communities, telling us what is the most effective way to engage. and so we started in a living room with 75 people and our next meeting was 400 people with these incredible organizations like black lives matter and cair and native american reps from standing rock. so we are trying to continue those conversations and push it out as far and wide through digit content. so people can go to to sign up and be a part of the conversation. >> seth: that's wonderful that you're doing that because i think there's this tendency. it's very easy to sort of watch these rallies, see them on television, and think, "oh look at this, this is the resistance. this is progress." and not actually take any steps to be helpful. >> absolutely. and you know, i think it starts with education. we have to be willing to admit what we don't know about one another and what we don't yet know about issues. and if you really want to make an impact in a meaningful way, then we have to stop and take the time to listen to one another. and it's like showing up, you know, with pencils when what somebody needs is a hammer, you know. so it's like, tell me what you need so i can show up with the
