tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC September 10, 2016 12:37am-1:38am EDT
>> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- taran killam and bobby moynihan. animal expert, corbin maxey. and "seth and the first lady go to howard university." featuring the 8g band with nate morton. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladi and gentlemen, seth meyers. >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] that's great to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. "the new york times" published an op-ed today that cites anecdotes from donald trump's childhood and argues that even as a child he personified privledge and entitlement. like, look what he made his mexican classmates pay for.
[ laughter ] [ applause ] donald trump said this week that vladimir putin has been a leader far more than our president has been a leader. and he's got a point. i mean, if president obama was as strong a leader as vladimir putin, donald trump would be dead by now. [ laughter ] [ applause ] that would be the difference. while donald trump often cites a quote in which vladimir putin allegedly called him brilliant, language experts are saying that the russian word used does not mean brilliant in the terms of intelligent, but more like a bright light or colorfulness. [ light laughter ] you know, like a big neon sign that says "moron." [ laughter ] [ applause ] donald trump gave an interview airing on russian television yesterday in which he called american media outlets unbelievably dishonest and said, "they'll take a statement that you make, which is perfect, and they'll cut it up and chop it up." and then i couldn't believe it,
he said this. >> i should never become president. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: what? that seems like a crazy thing to say. [ light laughter ] fox news anchor chris wallace who will be moderator for the final presidential debate of election season said in an interview this week that he doesn't feel it's his job to call out the candidates when they lie. "super!" said hillary and donald at the same time. [ laughter ] new york city turned 352 years old yesterday, and i have to say, it smells it. [ laughter ] [ applause ] the movie "sully" about the miracle on the hudson landed in theaters this weekend, which was pretty shocking because it was supposed to land in charlotte. [ laughter ] [ applause ] [ laughter ]
all right, why not give credit to our head writers that said "don't do that joke" and i said, "they'll love it." [ laughter ] they're my people. the audience, i know them. [ laughter ] we'll try another one. we'll try another version. the movie "sully" hit theaters this weekend about the 2009 landing of a disabled u.s. airways flight that became known on the miracle on the hudson, or as it's called in the goose community, the murder on the hudson. [ laughter ] [ applause ] a new york man was arrested this morning after allegedly stealing $600 from the bra of a 93-year-old woman. said the woman, "hey, give that back! i danced my ass off for that money." [ laughter ] [ applause ] that's right. a new york man was arrested this morning after allegedly stealing $600 from the bra of a 93-year-old woman.
though to be fair, he also found it on the ground. [ audience oohs ] [ cheers and applause ] it's okay. it's okay. we're having fun. [ light laughter ] the faa warned airline passengers this week against using the new samsung galaxy note 7 on planes because their batteries may burst into flames. plus, the new model makes it really hard to lie to the flight attendant about not being on your phone. [ light laughter ] "sir, your pants are literally on fire." [ light laughter ] [ applause ] and finally, according to reports, the italian supreme court ruled this week that masturbation in public is not a crime, after hearing the case of a man arrested earlier this year. and i think we all know how he celebrated the victory. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great friday show for you tonight.
from the hilarious new film "brother nature," my good friends taran killam and bobby moynihan are on the show. [ cheers and applause ] so excited to talk to them. we also have our favorite animal expert, corbin maxey, he's back on the show and he's bringing a sloth. [ cheers and applause ] sloth friday. and we're going to show you a film. i went to howard university with the first lady michelle obama. we're going to give you a look at that. so very excited about that. [ cheers and applause ] and -- yeah. got a great show. but before we get to all of that, this week the presidential candidates have been focusing on national security, which in any other year could be a real weakness for hillary clinton, given her support for the war in iraq. but of course, her opponent is donald trump, who keeps finding ways to remind us he has no idea what he's talking about. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: now, remember, hillary supported the wars in iraq, in libya. she has a hawkish streak that deserves scrutiny and criticism,
especially considering how wary many americans have become of foreign military intervention. fortunately for hillary, she's running against an opponent whose main foreign policy experience is the time he invaded scotland with a golf club. [ laughter ] now, as you may recall, the linchpin of donald trump's foreign policy platform is that he has a plan to defeat isis. a plan that only he could come up with because donald trump is smarter than the generals. >> i know more about isis than the generals do, believe me. i do know what to do and i would know how to bring isis to the table or beyond that, defeat isis very quickly. it is a foolproof way of winning. and i'm not going to tell you what it is tonight. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's right. he has a plan, but it's a secret plan. [ light laughter ] in fact, trump has repeatedly been asked by skeptical reporters to share his plan. and eventually he came up with a reason he couldn't reveal it. if he did, other candidates would steal it. quote, "if i tell you right now, everyone else is going to say, 'wow, what a great idea.'
you're going to have 10 candidates go and use it, and they're going to forget where it came from, which is me. but no, i have an absolute way of defeating isis. [ light laughter ] and yes, i have a girlfriend but she goes to another school and you wouldn't know her." [ laughter ] [ applause ] so -- so the key -- the key to trump's isis plan is that he knows more than the generals. and in a speech on wednesday trump finally revealed the details of that plan. >> immediately after taking office, i will ask my generals to present to me a plan within 30 days to defeat and destroy isis. >> seth: wait. that's your plan? [ light laughter ] i thought you had a plan. and you just know when the generals do present their plan, trump is going to be like, "well, you're not going to believe this but that is exactly what i was thinking of. [ laughter ] this is so crazy, i'm losing my mind right now." [ applause ] so to recap, trump knows more than the generals and has a secret plan to defeat isi,s which is to ask those generals
to come up with a plan to defeat isis. [ light laughter ] during wednesday's commander in chief forum on nbc, matt lauer asked trump about this to try to get some clarity. now, i could play the clip for you, but i feel like we have a tendency to get overwhelmed by trump's showmanship and lose track of just how insane what he's saying really is. so instead, i'm just going to flatly read what he said. these are donald trump's words, answering the question of whether he has a plan to defeat isis. quote, "when i do come up with a plan, that i like, and that perhaps agrees with mine, or maybe doesn't, i may love what the generals come back with. i have a plan. [ laughter ] but i want to be -- i don't want to -- look, i have a very substantial chance of winning. make america great again. we're going to make america great again. i have a substantial chance of winning. [ light laughter ] if i win, i don't want to broadcast to the enemy exactly what my plan is. and let me tell you, if i like maybe a combination of my plan and the generals' plan or the generals' plan, if i like their
plan, matt, i'm not going to call you up and say, 'matt, we have a great plan.'" [ laughter ] [ applause ] based on that, if anything, he's going to call up matt and say, "do you have a plan to defeat isis? [ light laughter ] no? is al roker there?" [ light laughter ] now, again, hillary could be vulnerable to criticism on her support for the wars in iraq and libya. and trump tried this week to use it against her, accusing her of favoring military venturism and claiming, as he has many times, that he was against the iraq war. >> i happened to hear hillary clinton say that i was not against the war in iraq. i was totally against the war in iraq. i was against the war in iraq because i said it's going to totally destabilize the middle east. >> seth: and finally, a rare instance where trump was telling the tru -- no, i'm just kidding. [ laughter ] he was lying. he was lying, because, here is he in 2002. >> are you for invading iraq? >> yeah, i guess so. [ light laughter ]
you know, i wish it was -- i wish the first time it was done correctly. >> seth: this is how crazy this election is. we no he where one candidate stood on iraq because of how she voted in the senate and we know where the other one stood because of his interview with howard stern. [ laughter ] also, shout out -- shout out to the greatest interviewer of all time, howard stern who in 2002 had the foresight to say, "let's find out where this real estate buffoon stands on the invasion of iraq. who knows? might be helpful to know one day." [ laughter ] [ applause ] but put aside -- put aside all of trump's blatant contradictions. even when he tries to sound smart about foreign policy, he accidentally reveals the limits of his knowledge, like when he shared what he thought was a stunning revelation about iraq. >> they have -- people don't know this about iraq, but they have among the largest oil reserves in the world, in the entire world. [ laughter ] >> seth: people don't know iraq has oil? that's literally the only thing people know about iraq.
if he had said, "people don't this about iraq but their national bird is the chukar partridge --" [ laughter ] you'd say, "you know what? i didn't know that. thank you very much." but oil? that's like saying, "people don't know this about paul mccartney, but before wings, he was in the beatles." [ laughter ] but perhaps the most gob smacking of all of trump's foreign policy positions is his continued insistence that vladimir putin is a better leader than president obama. >> well, he does have an 82% approval rating, according to the different pollsters who, by the way, some of them are based right here. look, he's -- >> he's also a guy who annexed crimea, invaded ukraine, supports assad in syria, supports iran. he's trying to undermine our influence in key regions of the world, and according to our intelligence committee -- community, probably is the main suspect for the hacking of the dnc computers. >> well, nobody knows that for a fact. but you want me to start naming some of the things that president obama does? >> but do you want to be complimented by that former kgb
officer? >> well, i think when he calls me brilliant, i'll take the compliment, okay? if he says great things about me, i'm going to say great things about him. [ light laughter ] >> seth: if he says great things about me, i'm going to say great things about him. so all isis has to do is compliment trump, and then we can expect trump to say this about isis. >> i love them. they're the greatest. [ laughter ] >> seth: look, we deserve two distinct foreign policy visions that offer a clear contrast. but instead, we've got one candidate with a record as a hawk and another who would go easy on authoritarian strongmen if they say nice things about him. of course, if neither of these candidates seem like an ideal choice for commander in chief, you could always turn to a third party alternative. for example, here's libertarian candidate gary johnson laying out his plan for the war-torn syrian town of aleppo. >> what would you do if you were elected about aleppo? >> about --? >> aleppo. >> and what is aleppo? [ light laughter ] >> you're kidding. >> no. >> aleppo is in syria.
it's the epicenter of the refugee crisis. >> okay, got it, got it. [ laughter ] >> seth: got it, got it. and here's a fact maybe you guys don't know. did you know iraq has oil? [ laughter ] this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with more "late night," everybody!

michelle obama, who was once a college freshman but now, a true story, the first lady of the united states. [ light laughter ] let's take a look. >> seth: hey, i'm seth meyers. i'm here with the first lady, and we're gonna go to howard university to give advice to freshmen on how to handle college. but here's the exciting thing. very exciting. they don't the know the first lady is going to be there. >> it's gonna be good! >> seth: so are you ready? >> i was born ready. >> seth: that is what people have told me. ♪ hi, there. so nice to meet you. >> nice to meet you. >> seth: i'm seth. >> siquori. >> trey. >> seth: trey, nice to meet you. >> i'm priscilla. nice to meet you. >> seth: hi, priscilla. >> alexandria. >> seth: alexandria. >> call me alex. >> seth: alex? >> yeah. >> seth: nice to meet you. take a seat. >> nice to meet you, too. >> seth: so as you know, we wanted to give you an opportunity to ask me questions so i could give you advice on college. >> uh-huh. >> seth: but if you don't mind i'd love to bring somebody else out to help me. is that cool? >> fine. >> seth: all right. um, mrs. obama. ♪ >> oh, my -- [ light laughter ] >> hey, alex, what's happening?
>> hi! >> how are you? >> seth: so do you want to come on out? ♪ >> oh, my gosh! >> hi! >> seth: will you come on out? >> hi. >> oh, my gosh! >> seth: mrs. obama would you like to come out, please? >> wait. [ laughter ] >> hi. [ laughter ] it's nice to meet you. hey. >> seth: hugh difference, huge difference in the reactions to meeting us. [ laughter ] >> amazing. >> seth: people always privately meet you -- >> oh, my god. >> seth: it just took her a second and now she's reacting to the fact that i'm here. [ laughter ] so ask your question again, trey. >> what was your question? >> what are constructive ways to, like, de-stress from class and work and stuff like that? >> when i was in college, music was huge for me. i played music 24/7. back then we had, you know, albums. >> yeah. >> and turntables and things like that. but now you've got music with you all the time. >> seth: well i would like to go back to my dorm room and i would
go to the mirror and i would dim the lights and i would just stare at my reflection and say over and over again, "you have to do better. [ laughter ] you have to do better at this. you are letting yourself down."

[ laughter ] i caught her braiding the cat's hair the other day. you have to call home more often. and she's treating me terribly. it's like she owns the place once you left. she's walking around like she's the first lady. [ laughter ] what is the most interesting thing you learned in intro to sociology? >> i learned about the sociological imagination. but it's when you look at the world through a sociological lense -- >> seth: honey, she is learning about imagination. we are paying too much money -- [ laughter ] -- to have our daughter in school taking a class on imagination. >> honey, are you taking any real courses that you can tell
us about? >> i'm taking pre-calc. >> oh, yeah. that sounds higher. >> seth: that i like. >> who do you love most? >> both of you. >> seth: don't do this. >> i love both of you. >> you are mommy's girl. >> seth: you are also daddy's girl. >> but the most. >> seth: oh, my goodness. >> i don't know what to say. >> mommy! >> seth: this is -- this is when we silently stare at each other at dinner. all right. we love you, honey, we miss you. >> kisses. >> love you, too. [ kissing noises ] >> seth: so we want to help you with a couple things. >> okay. >> seth: one is very important to mrs. obama. of course it's nutrition, it's also very important to me. we're going to show you some good -- a couple options for good meals. >> okay. >> all right, so these are my options. this is an example of a good meal. so let me just show you, you've got a healthy protein. you got a good grain. so you can have bread but a good grain bread. >> seth: yep, that's one way to go. >> this is my recommendation. >> seth: not my first choice. it's my second choice. not bad. i like to start the day off with skittles. [ light laughter ] an instant shock of sugar into the bloodstream, you're ready to go. now there's one downside to skittles in the morning.
you're going to crash a little bit. so you gotta double down at lunch with some skittles. [ laughter ] now, it's very important when it comes around dinner time, you probably won't be feeling well. you've eaten too much skittles. the only thing to do is -- skittles it up. >> and this is the variety pack over here? >> seth: yeah, because it's very important -- >> to have all the colors. >> seth: you have to have variety. if you eat all of one color, that's obviously unhealthy. but if you can mix it up like this, you're gonna be great. look, you can taste the asparagus but i think you want to taste the rainbow. [ light laughter ] >> i think this is better. >> seth: i hope we've been helpful, alex. >> yeah, you have. of course. >> seth: thank you so much for coming in. >> good luck. you are going to do well. >> thank you. it's a pleasure. >> you're going to do great! >> oh, thank you. oh, my god. >> seth: well, we're going to take a picture first. you want one? >> of course i want a picture. >> seth: you can take one with just me or -- okay. [ laughter ] >> oh, no! >> seth: oh, no, this fine. this is fine. >> that was bad advice. >> seth: it was good advice.
>> it was all bad. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how are you guys doing today? you all look fantastic. i really appreciate this. so i want to bring out -- who's joining me, our guest today. and what we did we took all the names of every howard freshman and we randomly drew one. it just turned out to be nick cannon. give it up. [ applause ] welcome. you ready to do this? >> let's do it. y'all ready? [ cheers ] >> seth: should we bring one more person out? >> we got to, man. >> seth: okay. everybody give it up for the first lady.

[ crowd yells ]
>> you know! >> seth: howard's got talent. so i'm going to let nick come into the audience. he's gonna go over there and i know some of you have some questions. so if you just want to walk over to nick, you can fire away. >> hi, i'm a shanti proctor, a sophomore marketing major from princeton, new jersey. and my question is what did your freshman year teach you about yourself? >> seth: that's a really good one. >> i need to think about this. seth doesn't think before he answers. >> seth: yeah, i just answer and worry about it later. i learned a lot about hygiene. [ laughter ] because for real, i think my first month at college i thought, "this is the best. i don't have my parents --" >> were you the smelly freshman? >> seth: i was a bad -- yeah. i was not a jackpot roommate. [ light laughter ] >> preach on being clean. do your laundry, change your underwear. [ light laughter ] >> seth: unless they're lucky underwear and you have a test. i think that's very important. >> well for me, i think it taught me that i could pretty much do anything, because i know
i've told this story before, but when i applied to colleges, i had people who told me that i was reaching too high. for all of you sitting here with those doubts in your head, because those whispers of doubt, they stay with you for a very long time, ignore them, brush them off and just do the work. i still carry that with me today as first lady of the united states, because there are people who don't think i should be doing that either. and it's been about eight years now. >> seth: i want to say, that is so unfair that you made me go first. because i said i learned that i didn't know basic hygiene and then you said i learned i can do anything. very unfair. [ light laughter ] >> i told you to think first. >> seth: how about a round of applause, everybody. [ applause ] for freshman nick cannon and the first lady. thank you all so much. have a great freshman year. [ cheers and applause ] >> h.u.! [ crowd yells ] >> you know!

more than you need us, but this will be a blast." and i get shot in the head. 'cause it's an action comedy about hitmen. and a mysterious gloved person puts my contact information on the desk. and that's my wife in her pajamas and my black trench coat and a glove. and she was like, "can i please go to bed?" [ laughter ] i was like, "no, no, no. when i fall, do it real gracefully." [ laughter ] and she's like, "you're an idiot." >> seth: this is not the kind of story that ends with schwarzenegger saying yes. that's amazing. >> and yet -- yeah, no. he liked the video, he liked the script. and he calls me on facetime to tell me. >> seth: you facetimed with arnold? >> that is his primary -- [ laughter ] he just called me back, said -- [ arnold impression ] "you're going to be great, don't be nervous." [ laughter ] "seth is a friend. picture the audience in their underwears." he called, i was on the 17th floor, and i pick up the facetime. and it's his assistant, he's like -- "hey taran, how's it going? i'm gonna hand you over to arnold now." and he hands me to arnold schwarzenegger, who's smoking a cigar, sitting at a
desk, in front of a six foot tall oil painting of himself from his "pumping iron" days. [ laughter ] and he goes -- [ arnold impression ] "taran, how are you? that's the before, this is the after." [ laughter ] he's the best. >> seth: that is the best. >> he's the best. he's the frickin' best. >> you also do a perfect "schwarzenegger's assistant." [ laughter ] >> seth: oh yeah, i mean, everybody. if you've met schwarzenegger's -- >> "hey, how's it going you guys?" >> seth: oh! that's the best. >> it's like he's here. >> seth: it's like he's here. >> welcome to 8g, which is a beautiful studio by the way. beautiful studio. security is a little lax here. >> very lax security. >> seth: okay, so -- go ahead. >> what? >> seth: no, go ahead. >> well you -- >> seth: you guys work right down the hall. >> my dressing room is your old dressing room. and it's feet away from here. but very lax security here. >> yeah, we can -- >> you can pretty much come in here and -- >> someone could just wander on and do whatever they want probably. >> someone could walk here in the middle of the day and maybe make their own video, or something. >> probably. and they'd probably say, roll the clip. >> yeah. [ footsteps ] [ groaning ]

"in bruges" anyone? [ laughter ] >> "in bruges." >> i'm from new hampshire. >> i'm fred armisen, hi! [ laughter and applause ] >> both: ya burnt! [ cheers and applause ] [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: they had time to cut out and remove this part of the desk. >> come back on mondays, just bubble wrap. >> seth: by the way, i'm so excited to see the film you directed. 'cause that was beautiful. >> thank you. [ laughter ] >> seth: that was beautifully shot. >> on the iphone. >> seth: no, no. >> i know. >> seth: an iphone? >> we're not kidding! [ light laughter ] >> a four. >> seth: and how many takes did you have to do?
>> we were here for six days. [ laughter ] >> seth: it was a six day shoot. so, "brother nature," you guys shot this in oregon? >> yes. >> seth: and this is the movie that's sort of in the -- feels like "what about bob" a little bit. sort of a summer campy-type movie? >> yes. >> seth: you kinda love the outdoors. >> very much so. >> seth: you do not. >> no. [ light laughter ] >> seth: was that apparent pretty much as soon as you started? >> no, i was -- right before we started shooting, i was like, "well, this is a lot of lake stuff. i'm not a big lake guy. i didn't say anything to taran about it, i probably should." [ laughter ] on the way up there, i was like, "i got this, i'm a grown man." and the second i jumped in the lake i started hyperventilating. and we had a -- we had a -- a little bit of a trouble. [ laughter ] >> what's also great is that his character in the movie loves lakes. >> loves lakes. >> seth: oh, so you really had to -- >> it was a lot of like, "yeah, we're tubing!" cut. "get me out!" [ laughter ] >> there was a lot of that. >> seth: taran, i couldn't even look at this photo today without being really skeeved out. you did a scene where you were
covered in ants. >> yes. thousands of flightless gnats, doubling for ants. they have great range. [ laughter ] >> seth: and they're real. >> these are all real, yeah. >> seth: you just lied there and just had real gnats on you? [ audience ohs ] >> oh, i'm brave! i should be applauded! >> seth: every single one of those gnats is in s.a.g./aftra now. [ laughter ] >> it's true. >> one more gig. >> it didn't bother me at all. this was a script written by cameron faye and broadway video bought it and said "you can sort of retool it and add to it." and mikey day, who's a writer on "snl" and i, did that. so we wrote that, and i had no problem with that. but everybody on set wanted to be nowhere near a bunch of little teeny bugs. >> seth: i don't even want to be near the picture. [ laughter ] >> yeah. i will say, the only part where it was awful is like, they would crawl into your ear canal. [ audience groans ] that was kind of like, "i don't care." [ laughter ] this is fine. >> seth: we'll come back with more, we'll show a clip.
