[ cheers and applause ] that's good. fantastic to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. fox news host lou dobbs interviewed president trump last night and told trump he is quote, "one of the most loved and respected presidents in history." [ light laughter ] i don't know about that, but he's definitely in the top 45.
[ laughter ] during the interview, president trump told dobbs he watches his show absolutely, almost all of the time. and lou dobbs told trump that he is quote, "one of the most loved and respected presidents in history." let's go to a clip. ♪ [ laughter ] ♪ >> seth: it was just a classic, hard-hitting fox news interview. [ laughter ] white house chief of staff john kelly reportedly told the trump administration that if it were up to him, the number of refugees admitted into the u.s. would be between zero and one. said betsy devos, "so, 13?" [ laughter ] starbucks has launched a limited-edition halloween-themed drink called "the zombie frappuccino." the way it works is, it has no caffeine. [ laughter and applause ] saudi arabia, yesterday, became

[ laughter and applause ] such an honor. such -- such -- such an honor. such -- such -- such -- reboot. rebooting. a pennsylvania mother recently threw her 3-year-old daughter a target-themed birthday party, which explains why every mom just went to drop off their child, but somehow left with $300 worth of stuff. [ laughter ] nba star charles barkley is launching his own wine brand. but as usual, he's having problems putting a cork in it. [ laughter ] [ scattered applause ] queen elizabeth has reportedly earned over $9 million from horse racing prize money in the past three decades. and when i say she earned it, i mean she earned it. [ laughter ] and finally, according to a
recent study, 16% of americans believe that big foot is a real creature. but they might just be confused after watching the world series. [ laughter and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a fantastic show for you tonight! he's the star of "ray donovan" on showtime, a fantastic actor. live schreiber is here tonight, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] you know her from hbo's "curb your enthusiasm." she's also got a very funny new film coming out, "a bad mom's christmas." cheryl hines is here, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] and you know him from "snl." he is also one of the voices and the writer of the "david s. pumpkins halloween special." mikey day is here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] very excited to have mikey here for the first time. before we get to all that, the trump administration seems permanently inundated by scandal and constantly under siege, including from senior members of trump's own party. which might explain why many on the right seem to want to live in an alternate reality where trump actually isn't president. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look."
♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: just in the past week, senior members of the republican party have warned that the president is a threat to democracy and national security. and the president himself lashed out at the family of a fallen soldier. in fact yesterday, trump gratuitously waded back into that controversy by insisting that his account of the call he made to the widow of sgt. la david johnson was correct. and in the process made one of the more absurd claims of his presidency. >> i was really nice to her. i respect her. i respect her family. i certainly respect la david, he -- who i -- by the way i called la david right from the beginning, just so you understand. they put a chart in front, la david. it says "la david johnson." so i call right from the beginning, there's no hesitation. one of the great memories of all time. [ laughter ] >> seth: his memory is so great, he has to point to his head to show us he remembers where it is. [ laughter ] "my memory is so great. that's -- that's where i remember --
that's where my memory is. it's up here in my brain. [ light laughter ] which if i remember correctly, is inside my head. i went to a very good school." [ laughter ] also, you do not have a great memory. i'm not even talking about stuff that happened a long time ago. back in april, you couldn't even remember which country you had just bombed. >> we've just launched 59 missiles heading to iraq. >> well, you -- headed to syria. >> yes. [ light laughter ] heading toward syria. >> seth: so nice of her to correct him. fox news hosts are like dance moms quietly doing the routine in the background so their kids won't mess up. [ light laughter ] "syria. say, syria." somehow -- [ applause ] somehow trump can even turn the issue of condolence calls to gold star families into an opportunity to brag about himself. and in an especially gross turn, he insisted of that the big takeaway from his condolence calls to gold star families should be how great he is. >> you know, it's interesting, you folks have called many people that i spoke to,
everybody has said unbelievable, good things about me. >> seth: in a way, i agree with him. if they're good things, they're unbelievable. [ laughter ] what is wrong with you? it's a condolence call. you don't get a yelp review afterward. "i'm sorry for your loss. now if you wouldn't mind, please give me five stars." [ light laughter ] trump has the perverse ability to take any solemn moment and shoehorn in an absurd and excessive brag about himself. for example, trump discussed his feuds with republican senators who have warned that he's a danger to democracy and national security. and when asked if he should be more civil, said something that doesn't really add up. >> well, i think the press makes me more uncivil than i am. you know, people don't understand. i went to an ivy league college. i was a nice student. i did very well. i'm a very intelligent person. [ laughter ] >> seth: are you? because you talk like a rosetta stone video for remedial english. [ laughter and applause ] "i was a nice student.
i did very well. where is your library?" so trump is supposedly a very intelligent person with the world's greatest memory and people are saying unbelievable things about him. now, to be fair, you might also have an inflated ego if there was a whole tv channel dedicated to showering you with praise. last night, trump sat down for his 18th interview with fox new as president. this time with fox business host, lou dobbs. and right out of the gate, dobbs hit trump with the tough questions. >> in nine months in office, you have already accomplished more in the way of job creation, all of the indexes at or near record levels. you have accomplished so much in that nine months. you came into this job fighting like hell and you are fighting like hell every day. you are a, if i may say, everything as advertised as you ran for president and appreciate everything you're doing. you are one of the most, i would say by the left particularly,
reviled, even hated men to ever hold your post. >> i would say so. >> you are also one of the most loved and respected. >> i would say that also. >> seth: ugh. [ light laughter ] usually when you see an old dude slobber that much, he has a nurse with him. [ laughter ] mr. dobbs, you have pudding on your chin. "i'm saving it for later." [ laughter ] later in the fox interview, trump got a chance to show off that ivy league education when talking about his relationship with china's president, who was just granted enormous new powers. so let's see our ivy league-educated president talk about perhaps the most important bilateral relationship in the world. >> he represents china. i represent the usa. so, you know, there's going to always be conflict. but we have a very good relationship. people say we have the best relationship of any president -- president -- 'cause, he's called president also. now some people might call him the king of china. >> right. >> but he's called president. >> seth: that's right. they have the best relationship
of any president president. incidentally president president sounds like how you describe someone in comparison to trump. "sure, trump is a president, but obama was a president president." [ laughter and applause ] also, i love -- i love when trump says things like, "some people call him king of china," which just gives away that's what he used to call him. [ light laughter ] "so i'm going to meet the king of china?" "the president, sir." "where's the king?" "there is no king." "they killed the king? [ laughter ] i should call the queen of china and give her one of my five-star condolence calls." [ laughter and applause ] of course, in reality, trump has been massively unpopular and dogged by scandal, in particular the russia investigation. which might explain why when they're not interviewing trump, fox news is much more interested in talking about the candidate who didn't win the election, hillary clinton. and in particular, they've tried to dredge up a series of debunked and overblown stories to muddy the waters and make it look like it was actually hillary who colluded with russia. which is why if you watched any
fox news at all lately, you've probably heard one phrase in particular over and over again. >> the big bombshell in washington, the real russia investigation. >> could bill and hillary clinton be the center of the real russia story? >> the press secretary tweeting out last night, quote, "the real russia scandal" -- >> we'll take up the real russia collusion story. >> this is real russia collusion. this is the real russia story. robert mueller, wake up tonight. >> seth: oh, you don't have to tell robert mueller to wake up. he's the guy who tells the rooster to wake up. look at him. he looks like he sleeps with his eyes open in a rocking chair holding a shotgun. [ laughter ] he paints eyelids on his eyes to trick you into thinking he's sleeping. [ laughter ] the reason for this latest fox news freak-out is a report in the "washington post" that the clinton campaign and the dnc paid for research that led to the infamous russia dossier. now we already knew that some democrats had paid for the research. and in fact before that, the
research was funded by a republican client during the gop primary. but there really is no one more obsessed with this dossier and the salacious allegations contained in them than sean hannity. for some reason, he repeatedly goes out of his way to discuss those embarrassing details. and now that the dossier is back in the news, it gives us an opportunity to add a new entry to one of our favorite montages -- sean hannity trying to protect trump from the embarrassment of the alleged pee tape by talking about the alleged pee tape. enjoy. >> remember, that's the dossier that talked about trump at a ritz carlton in moscow with two prostitutes urinating on his bed? remember they published the fake document about president trump and that goes to the ritz carlton and that goes to hookers? that phony dossier quoting russians and the ritz carlton and hookers. remember, that was about the ritz carlton and hookers? they ignored the dossier, you know, talking about hookers and urinating in beds. they've been perfectly fine repeating in public unproven information from a dossier. member?
hookers, ritz carlton, urinating on the bed. and remember, the democrats, media, they were happy to repeat, for example, oh, that donald trump was in the ritz in moscow and he had hookers urinating in his bed. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: yeah, who would be dumb enough to repeat such an embarrassing rumor? i mean, besides bmw frankenstein here. fox news would much rather talk about hillary than donald trump. that's because the right in the trump era doesn't have coherent principles or an ideology, it just has enemies. which is why they prefer to inhabit an alternate reality where hillary clinton is president. and what little you will hear about trump won't be negative, that is except for -- >> donald trump was in the ritz in moscow and he had hookers urinating in his bed. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with more "late night," everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪

[ laughter ] >> seth: you play -- so ray donovan is a fixer of sorts on the show. did you talk to people who had those -- that type of profession before you started doing this? >> no, i talked to lawyers. i talked to -- because lawyers are actually the ray donovans of -- well, not entirely. but lawyers, i talked to security guys, bodyguards, private detectives. it's just that ray sort of does a little bit of everything. and there have been guys, particularly in the golden age
of movies, who did it all. >> seth: yeah. >> but none of those guys are around anymore. but i think it -- you know, i really think it was a brilliant move by ann to kind of predict that our culture would become so spin-obsessed. >> seth: sure. >> that a character like ray donovan would -- would really be a compelling character. >> seth: no, it feels like everyone these days -- you would not be surprised to know if anyone in politics had a fixer. >> that's right. >> seth: you would say, "of course." >> yeah. >> seth: it would be silly not to have a fixer. >> yeah. it's sort of de rigueur now, yeah. >> seth: yeah, exactly. >> yeah. >> seth: when you talk to those guys, people that were in the bodyguard business or the security business, are they excited to talk to an actor who's about play that type? >> i think people are always generally excited to talk to an actor who's about to -- >> seth: yeah. >> play them, i think, you know? >> seth: i guess they have a chance, too, to try to, like, politic and make sure you do it in a way that makes them seem cooler. >> i think marty baron was probably the exception to that. >> seth: oh, right. sure, of course. >> when i went, i took a train down to meet marty baron who i'm a huge fan of -- >> seth: right. >> as an editor. i'm a great admirer of his. and i don't think there could have been two more nervous guys in a room --
>> seth: right. >> than me and marty baron talking -- he's not someone who i think really is interested in his own story. he's -- >> seth: well, yeah. i would imagine because he's so much on the side of the news that presents it. >> right. >> seth: that, like, i -- he strikes me as he's someone who believes the more invisible he is the better the news story. >> the better he is at his job. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: he must've been psyched though that liev schreiber was playing him, right? >> i don't know. >> seth: yeah. >> if i'm marty baron and i see ray donovan walk in i'm a little worried. >> seth: yeah, i think so, too, yeah. no, ray donovan comes from boston. >> he does. >> seth: he's from southie. >> he does. >> seth: so you have to, as an actor, one of the great hurdles of any actor is the boston accent. >> yeah. >> seth: how do you feel -- do you feel good about it? >> i feel like we did okay. i fee like i'm pretty good at it -- >> seth: that's the best grade you'll ever get from a person from boston. >> what's that?

[ laughter ] it did sound like it when i said "yeah, i know." >> seth: i think you were saying it about christine and susan. >> i was. >> seth: but it came off as definitely about yourself. >> yeah. you guys -- [ light laughter ] yeah, you guys are going to love it. >> seth: we can tell from the clip that you were maybe one of the -- you're a clingy mom. >> a little bit clingy. >> seth: was that -- did you base this on your own mother? has your mother seen this? >> well, my mother is a little bit clingy. >> seth: okay. oh, she is? >> for instance, if you check into a hotel room and there are two queen size beds, i'll sleep in one. and then she comes and gets in the same bed. >> seth: she does that? really? [ light laughter ] >> but it's like, well, you can have that bed. she goes, "that's okay." >> seth: uh-huh. >> "we'll put our luggage on that bed. and we can sleep on this bed." >> seth: yeah. >> so -- and she hasn't seen the movie yet. and i'm a little concerned.
[ laughter ] >> seth: because that seems hyper-specific to the clip we saw. [ laughter ] >> no, by the way, she will be flattered by that. >> seth: okay. >> so, i'm not worried about that. but there are things that happen in the movie -- it's a very dirty movie. >> seth: yeah. >> you know that? >> seth: yeah. they're bad moms. [ light laughter ] >> they're bad -- there really bad moms. and justin hartley, you know who that is? >> seth: yeah, justin hartley from "this is us." >> super cute. from "this is us." gets his balls and [ bleep ] waxed. >> seth: okay. >> right? >> seth: so, there is a balls and [ bleep ] waxing. [ light laughter ] >> yeah. >> seth: yeah. >> and i'll be sitting next to my mom during the premiere. and i just have a bad, bad feeling. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> that she's going to say, "what's a [ bleep ]? >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] i'd say that's a lock. >> yeah, that -- >> seth: i'd be honest, if she doesn't say it i'd be more upset. [ laughter ] >> that's true! >> seth: like, "i love [ bleep ] humor!" [ light laughter ] >> it's true. then i'm really scared. >> seth: you grew up in florida. >> i did. >> seth: the movie takes place
at christmas. >> yes. >> seth: what were florida christmases like? >> hot. >> seth: yeah, i'd imagine. >> it's hot. it's a little confusing when you're a kid. because, you know, they always talk about santa claus coming down the chimney. >> seth: yeah. >> well, we don't have fireplaces. >> seth: right. >> so we would always ask where santa claus -- how does he get in? through the front door or break in a window? so everything is different there. it's hot. it's warm. and one time we were shooting "curb." and i went home to florida for christmas. and somebody in my family made a nativity scene out of cookies. >> seth: okay. >> and then everybody said "nobody eat baby jesus." right? >> seth: sure. >> because they wanted to look at it for a while. >> seth: yeah. you wait all year for him, you don't want to -- >> i called larry and i said, "okay, here's what's happening at my house." this is still a tele -- this is still the phone i use. >> seth: yeah, yeah, yeah. [ light laughter ] >> hello, larry, are you there? but i said, "if you were here,
you would eat baby jesus. and my family would go crazy." he's, like, "oh, my god. we've got to do that." [ laughter ] then he goes, "what else is going on down there? i said, "well, you know it's very warm down here, so people do live nativity scenes." >> seth: mm-hmm. >> and he said "what is that?" i said, "well people dress up as mary and joseph. and then they stand on the lawn. for hours at a time. in the nativity scenes." >> seth: that's weird. because the fact that it's warm enough to do it doesn't seem to make it a good idea. [ laughter ] >> i know! it is weird. >> seth: yeah. >> and actually, they're probably so hot. >> seth: yeah. >> there are a lot of cloaks and things like that going on. >> seth: sure. >> but so then larry said, "well, that has to be in the show, too." so we did a whole episode. >> seth: you did that whole episode. >> yeah, larry ate baby jesus and mary. [ light laughter ] >> seth: what a heightening. >> yeah! he heightened reality just a little. >> seth: what was it like when
you first -- 'cause it's such a fantastic part. it's very hard to imagine the show without you cast as cheryl, the name alone. >> the name alone. >> seth: but what was it like when you first got the call from larry david that the show was going to go? >> well, i was very excited. i was teaching improv at the groundlings. i was a groundling, which is a theater in l.a. where you learn how to improvise and do sketch comedy. and he said the show is going to be a series and i want you to play my wife. and i said, "oh, my god. that is the best thing i have ever heard in my life." and he said, "oh, that's sad." [ laughter ] "so, that's just the best thing you have ever heard in your life?" i was, like, "can't i just have a moment." >> seth: yeah. >> just one moment. just let me sink it in. >> seth: it doesn't seem like larry's a guy who gives a lot of space for people to have a moment. >> no, no. >> seth: but because your name is cheryl on the show, is it
true that people actually -- people from your past did think that you were married to larry david? >> yes. i mean, because when the show came out, you know, you would watch it. and it was larry david and it was richard lewis and jerry seinfeld was on. and people were on that you -- >> seth: and they all played themselves. >> right. and then i'm on. and my name is cheryl. i had moved to l.a. and now my name is cheryl david. so people were calling my mom in tallahassee saying, "well, i was never invited to cheryl's wedding." [ laughter ] like, i'm not -- and then i went on an audition. and the casting director said "oh, you're an actress, too?" and i said -- "i'm sorry, what?" he said, i watched "curb" -- you know, the larry david show, and i know you're his wife. i didn't know you were an actor. [ laughter ] i was like, "this is so weird! this is surreal. it's a weird" -- >> seth: everybody thinks it's a documentary. that's fantastic. >> it's a documentary. even now, i mean, people know --
they know that in their head and in their heart that i'm not married to larry. >> seth: yeah. >> but people still come up to me and say "i just want to believe you are." >> seth: you have to let them have that. >> and i let them have it. >> seth: that's the magic of hollywood. >> that's right. i say that we are. >> seth: well, i am so happy the show is back. congrats on the movie. it's so wonderful to have you here. >> thank you.

[ laughter ] and that's fantastic. what's awesome about this is you
can tell they just put a david pumpkins suit on an existing tom hanks -- >> seth: yeah, you're right. [ laughter ] >> because he's so calm. and i think this is in the room that was, like, a hollywood party. >> seth: yeah, exactly. >> because it's just clearly tom hanks, like, "hi." >> seth: i'm so mad at myself that i did not realize that's what they did. i can't believe how quickly they made a new wax tom hanks. >> i know, right? let's make david pumpkins just chilling with a nice smile on his face. >> seth: so now you have an animated david s. pumpkins special. >> yep. >> seth: you are one of the voices. you co-wrote it. >> yeah, with bobby moynihan and streeter seidell. >> seth: this is animated special. >> yep. >> seth: it looks a little bit -- it's got, like, some -- like saturday morning cartoon graphics. >> it's got a very old-school kind of throwback animation style. >> seth: for kids? is it -- >> yeah. >> seth: is it kid-friendly? >> yeah. that's how it came to be. we -- especially after the sketch, like, seeing social media and a lot of kids dressing up as david pumpkins. i saw youtube videos of kids acting out the sketch from beginning to end. and we thought it would be fun to do a halloween special, like,
with david pumpkins for kids. because david pumpkins is kind of like a kid himself. >> seth: yeah. >> i mean, this thing is very like -- my 5-year-old son does that type of thing, you know what i mean? >> seth: yeah. >> so we decided to gear it towards kids. and there's a lot of -- there's kind of like a leaving cookies for santa claus. >> seth: uh-huh. >> there's the david pumpkins equivalent -- >> seth: oh, gotcha. >> you know, for kids. >> seth: now i do want to point out your time-slot for cartoon for kids is 11:30 on saturday night. >> yeah, exactly.

about the origins of sketch. originally -- and then we have the bobby cartoon and then we have the you cartoon. >> yeah. and he said himself, he said, "we should be left skeleton and fat skeleton." >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> like -- and i said, "no, you're right skeleton." >> seth: you've been a writer now since 2013. one of my favorite things to ask -- sketches that you have pitched that have not found their way to the show. >> there are so many. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> there was one i wrote with streeter seidell, who i wrote the david pumpkins sketch and the special with. >> seth: yes. great writer, as well. >> we thought it was so funny. it was a commercial parody for a car security system that would guarantee that no thief would break into your car. >> seth: mm-hmm. >> and it was a bag of old mcdonald's -- [ light laughter ] on -- on the floor in your passenger seat. and you could tell by the audience. >> seth: yeah. >> i mean, it was a huge hit -- >> seth: yeah, sure. [ laughter ] >> at the table read. >> seth: yeah, yeah. i'm sure lorne's going to watch that when he hears that audience lose their mind. >> oh, my gosh!
[ laughter ] it needs to go straight to air! but, we thought -- >> seth: so was the idea a criminal would see the bag -- >> yeah, it would, like -- it had testimonials from car thieves and -- you know, they were like, "look, if i'm going to break into a car and i see a bag of old mcdonald's on the floor, like, i know it's going to smell bad. have that old mcdonald's smell." >> seth: yeah. >> "and there's ten other cars on this block that don't smell." >> seth: right. >> and then there was a deluxe system that had a leash and a wet towel in the backseat. [ laughter ] >> seth: gotcha. >> and it was like -- like you took your dog to the beach. >> seth: right, there you go. >> and we -- streeter and i were like, "oh, this is going to crush." >> seth: yeah. >> and then it was just nothing. >> seth: yeah. >> and we're like, "okay, we hate this now." [ laughter ] it's so funny how quickly -- >> seth: uh -- anything else? >> we had a -- with brian tucker we had a sketch of mortal kombat. it was a few years ago, mortal kombat x was coming out. >> seth: right. >> and pete was playing a video game and it -- you know the character select screens where it's like, "choose your fighter," and it's like, "raiden.
scorpion." it just -- and then it was like, "raiden. scorpion. sonya." and then it went to kevin hart. >> seth: uh-huh. and he looked like flavor flav, i would say. [ light laughter ] and he just went, "crazy cheese!" [ laughter ] and then pete was like, "what?" and then, of course, he did not want crazy cheese. and it was like, "you've selected crazy cheese." >> seth: gotcha. >> and then i just remember his combo move was leslie jones came out as his girlfriend and went, "i'm karen!" [ laughter ] so it was a little too complicated. maybe some day. >> seth: some day. >> um -- uh. >> seth: yeah. >> judging by the audience response mortal also -- >> seth: i think -- "snl" is back next week. i think we can look forward to both mcdonald's security system and crazy cheese. >> yeah, it's going to dominate the show. >> seth: i can't wait to see the special. thank you very much for being here, mikey. >> thank you, i love you. >> seth: it was just such a pleasure. >> you're amazing.
