[ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] ? >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers, this is late night. how 's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] yeah. good crowd tonight. [ light laughter ] let's get to the news. senator elizabeth warren said yesterday that donald trump is too chicken to release his tax
too chicken? i don't know. he looks more like ham to me. [ light laughter ] vice presidential nominee tim kaine said this week, that when donald trump insults hillary clinton it makes him furious. and you wouldn't want to see tim kaine when he is furious. no, actually, let's see that. oh -- [ laughter ] the clinton foundation has reportedly alerted staff that there will be dozens of lay offs at the end of the year. said one staffer, please be me, oh please be me. that's available. [ applause ] donald trump said yesterday that there will be a great place for former presidential candidate dr. ben carson and his administration if he wins, although i'm guessing it won't be secretary of energy. [ light laughter ] a new poll has found that almost
rhetoric and the other 30% said, which one's rhetoric? [ laughter ] facebook founder mark zuckerberg announced a $3 billion initiative yesterday, to cure or manage all diseases within the next lifetime. hopefully to include whatever disease it is that makes my aunt think i want to play candy crush saga. [ laughter ] you're sick. re [ cheers and applause ] today is the official start of fall, but analysts say that global warming will cause temperatures consistent with late july. on the bright side if your pumpkin spice latte gets cold you can just set it on the sidewalk for a few minutes. [ light laughter ] and finally -- sorry, just laughing about that pumpkin latte joke. [ laughter ] because someone had to.
[ cheers and applause ] a young man worked very hard on that joke. [ laughter ] and that young man has parents. and now they're going to watch the show and say which one did you get on? and he'll say i wrote the pumpkin latte one and they'll say, all right. so -- we assume you're moving home. [ laughter ] where were we. oh right. lee admitted yesterday that he lied to his constituents about the bridgegate scandal because he was quote petrified of chris christie. him? he didn't even look scary when he was causing all of that trouble for the ghost busters. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, from the new film "the magnificent seven," one of our favorites, chris pratt, is here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] we have another edition of nbc's "forced friends" with miley cyrus.
"high maintenance" ben sinclair and and katja blichfeld. so first -- first, before all that, with presidential election less than two months away, new polls are coming out every day. for example this week a new cnn poll found that donald trump was beating hillary clinton 45 to 43% but these polls don't just give a national picture. they also break down certain demographics in the electorate, and they get really, really specific. so let's dig deeper in this new cnn poll -- to this new cnn po in a segment we call "specific demographics." m? [ applause ] >> seth: okay. so we know the overall that also in this cnn poll among women clinton is leading 53-38. among white males trump is ahead 48% to 41% and among white males who call their friend group "the wolf pack" it's trump up big 86-14. [ light laughter ]
separate piece of paper before they fill out the actual card it's clinton 100, trump zero. [ laughter ] this one, i found very interesting. among men who claim to be femininst just to get laid, dead heat, clinton 50, trump 50. [ light laughter ] among dads who can whistle with two fingers, trump 97, clinton three. among people who blame their flatulence on the dog it's trump ahead 89 to clinton's 11. but among people whome hormones injected into farm factory meat you can flip it, clinton 89, trump 11. among people who flex their arm when someone touches it. that's trump 75, clinton 25. among aunts who scream when the d.j. plays "the electric slide" at a wedding reception, clinton 93, trump seven. however among uncles who mutter "there she goes again," every time the aunt gets excited about the electric slide, trump 93,
morning thinking about fried chicken then they get to lunch sigh, and order grilled chicken instead. clinton 63. trump 37. [ light laughter ] among women who were last seen at burning man wearing nothing but a puka shell necklace it's green party candidate jill stein in a landslide -- [ laughter ] -- with 98% of the vote. among people who say their favorite all time song lyric is, ? pinching nurses asses while i'm [bleep] off with jurgens that i'm jerking ? ? by this whole bag of viagra isn't working ? ? every single person is a slim shady sure lurki dead heat, 50-50. surprised me. [ laughter ] [ applause ] and finally among pollsters, who have been polling on the 2016 election so long, they haven't had time to focus on their own lives, their own issues and whether or not it's still possible to win their ex-wife back after all of these years, or if it's even worth trying since she fell in love with kevin and he treats her well -- much better since, then some workaholic poster ever could. it's clinton 73, trump 27.

[ laughter ] and like, they watched the show and thought it was funny and then i was able to be like "hey, i'm a stoner too and so are my friends. and then it was all better." >> so after -- the day after we got married, we were standing with my parents by the car and
[ laughter ] >> yeah. >> and like that's kind of how we deal with stress and my dad's like "well some people eat donuts." and that was great. >> it's true. >> seth: that's great. >> wise words. >> seth: i love that you waited until your wedding day. >> oh yeah. >> i thought it was weird timing. that was you just kind of -- >> yeah we were signing the ketubah just like really going for it. no, it wasn't like that. ketubah joke, i'm glad i got to slide that in there. >> yeah, how'd you get that in there? >> also i mean, some people do stop him on the street. to say that they're aware -- they'll say like i'm doing what you do. and he'll have -- >> seth: oh, weed delivery men? >> yes. >> oh yeah. >> seth: well you might, i mean again, because there really hasn't been ever shown on television, i felt like you are now technically the guy and also the guy for them. >> oh, well, that's just depends who they are really. >> seth: right, are they excited? >> yeah, i mean no, so like i

[ laughter ] >> some people think that, yeah. >> i will say there is this thing of where like, you realize that people are looking at your face to determine how they're doing, you know. so it's like there's like keeping your face a certain kind of -- i don't want to reveal that anything is going wrong
talk about this. where no one can see us. >> seth: oh you mean when you guys might not completely agree? >> oh, sure. yeah, like don't fight in front of the kids. is like a rule. >> on set. >> sure. >> seth: do you think people -- i would always clock when my parents were doing that. >> oh yeah. >> seth: they think they're fooling you, but all of a sudden mom and dad look at each other and leave the room and you know oh they're going to fight. >> tell us more, i'm interested in what you're telling me. >> tell us your secrets. >> seth: it was rough, man. it wasn't until my wedding day when i was signing the ketubah that -- [ light laughter ] amy ryan, fantastic actress, who we saw in that clip. >> so good. >> seth: you're friends with her in real life, and her husband eric slovin. >> you know him. >> seth: who i used to work with, >> so good. >> seth: he's a fantastic comedy writer, but you guys know that as well. >> we do. we actually wrote some episodes of this current season at their lake house. >> seth: that's very nice. >> they were very kind to us. >> they were so gracious. >> and they -- >> we got a little overzealous eating all of their stuff though.
