12:41 am
9/11. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so for years it's been taken as an article of faith among republicans that george w. bush kept us safe after 9/11 and that despite bush's mistakes in iraq, the en hold there since 2008 is actually president obama's fault. but then, at the gop debate on saturday donald trump said this. war in iraq was a big, fat mistake, all right? george bush made a mistake. we should have never been in iraq. we have destabilized the middle east. there were no weapons of mass destruction. [ booing ] >> seth: look how angry trump is. his skin is so red it looks like he's fading into the background. [ laughter ] ng. critics of the iraq war have been saying for years that
12:42 am
into the rush to war.blican party's own frontrunner to make that case, it's a big deal. but that wasn't even trump's biggest violation of republican orthodoxy, because this happened next. trump was building a reality tv show, my brother was building a security apparatus to keep us safe, and i'm proud of what he did. [ cheering ]ad the gall to go after -- >> the world trade center came down during your brother's reign. remember that. [ booing ] >> hold on, let me finish.right. after months of trump making racist comments at republican debates, he finally got booed for saying george w. bush was president on 9/11. you can't do that at a republican debate.ose things, everyone knows is true, but no one is allowed to say out loud. like how you're not allowed to say that when your hot cousin was studying abroad she was a baby. [ laughter ] but yesterday jeb responded to trump's attacks with a slam of his own. ialogue back and forth made me wonder. i closed my eyes and i thought it was michael moore on the
12:43 am
>> seth: "also when i closeded i wasn't running for president anymore. [ light laughter ] i was back home in florida where no one ever tweets mean things about me and hurts my feelings." [ light laughter ] but trump was not backing ss conference on monday he went even harder at george w. bush, lambasting him for his management of the iraq war. >> shouldn't have been there, shouldn't have g got out. but if the president went to the beach, we would have been better off, believe me. saddam hussein was a bad guyout him, he killed terrorists. now iraq is harvard for terrorism. >> seth: iraq harvard. that's ridiculous. there. it's definitely yale. [ light laughter ] but of course, even when trump is right he finds a way to be wrong.ump has been claiming for months during this campaign that he had the foresight to speak out against the iraq war when it first started in 2003, not just later when the war turned out to be a disaster. yet independent fact checkers have been able to find no as ever critical of the war before it began. in fact, he was confronted about
12:44 am
>> none of us have been able to e where, before the invasion, you came out against this war. why is that? >> well, i did it in 2003. don't forget, i wasn't a politician. >> seth: i'm sorry, you guys. i'm just remembering back when he wasn't a politician. [ light laughter ]ood old days. [ laughter and applause ] what's amazing about this entire episode is that no one knows how republican voters will react t in general, the war remains very unpopular with 59% of americans and even 44% of republicans saying it wasn't worth it.bush remains personally well-liked by republican primary voters. so just how shocked was the gop establishment at trump's attack?nsultant told politico yesterday, quote, "everything we know about political strategies suggests that trump's decision to attack george w. bush will backfire, and if it doesn't backfire, icial -- nothing can stop him." it will stop him! or it won't. and then nothing will, or maybe
12:45 am
i don't know, just stop asking me questions about him! ] so far there's no evidence that the attacks on the bush legacy are hurting trump. one south carolina voter told msnbc he agreed with jeb, but was still leaning towards trump,had told him to [ bleep ] off he'd get my vote." [ laughter ] i know you think you want to hear jeb say that, but he at it. you'd see him working up the nerve, but then he'd lose confidence halfway and bail. like, "hey, man! [ quietly ] [ bleep ] off." t did you say?" [ very quietly ] "[ bleep ] off." [ laughter ] so it's a jeb-trump fight in the spotlight and the stage was set for george w. bush himself to bush joined his brother jeb in south carolina monday, his first campaign appearance in years, and he took a shot at trump, george w. style. eems to be a lot of name-calling going on, but i want to remind you what our good dad told me one time.
12:46 am
[ laughter ]hat? what was happening when your dad said "labels are for soup cans?" [ laughter ]ing jeb with a labelmaker? [ laughter ] that wasn't the only blast from there was another member of the bush administration who crawled out of the woodwork to slam trump, and if you suddenly feel a cold wind blowing through you, you didn't leave the cheney is back. >> donald trump accused president bush and his team of purposely lying the country into war in iraq, saying, "i will te they said there were weapons of mass destruction, there were none. they knew there were none." your response?ds like a liberal democrat to me, brett. >> seth: finally, someone who's not afraid to snarl back at trump. remember, cheney's always gonna have the upper hand.s he can shoot someone and get away with it. cheney did it. [ laughter ] so it will be interesting to see debate over the bush legacy, but
12:47 am
of bush's handling of the iraq war, he also has his own well-thought out plan for fighting terrorism. the [ bleep ] out of 'em. [ laughter ] >> seth: oh, my god. every plan is terrible. this has been "a closer look." [ applause ]ight back with more "late night." [ cheers and applause ] life as spokesbox is great. people love me for saving them over half a grand when they switch to progressive. so i'm dabbling in new ventures. with the dalai lama. great guy. terrible player. go paperless don't stress, girl i got the discounts that you need but i got to give the people what they want -- more box. any words for the critics? what can i say? critties gonna neg. the what?!

1:20 am
her boyfriend who is an ex-marine. and she said "oh, my god. i hear something, and it's coming from upstairs and there's nobody in the house." "get under the bed now!" so he must have watched "taken" probably a few times. [ laughter ] is an ex-marine training video, yes. >> exaclty. all three of them. so she goes under the bed, and he goes, "i'm gonna call911, loops her into the call. and they go, "what's your emergency?" and she's saying, "well, there's somebody in the house and they're upstairs. and she goes, "okay, where are you now?" and she goes, "under the bkay. stay there. are there guns in the house?" and she goes, "i don't think so." she goes, "good, because they can be used against you, so, you know, we're gonna --" >> seth: don't give her something negative to think lready under the bed.

1:23 am
it's very much a family -- it's a movie about love, family and parenting. and, so, it's really not about autism.y just about a family falling apart. and in this case, it's a woman who comes into our lives who is use she is a pretends to be a caretaker, but she knows nothing about autistic children, let alone children. she's really a child, herself. and so, she has a really big influence on the child, ultimately. become very close, and then, we find out who she is. >> seth: it's very nice that it's a film about a family as well because i feel like that is who you know -- everyone has to go through that together, so it's wonderful thatlm. i also want to ask you, doing an arc on "how to get away with murder" with shonda rimes. >> right. >> seth: these shows are very --ed to give away any spoilers on these things. >> no. >> seth: you can't say anything about -- >> now i can say i was viola davis' lesbian lover, but before that, no. >> seth: you couldn't say ng. >> seth: and you had practice with this with "x-men"? >> oh, yes. >> seth: so, like, when you did those movies, what was harder -- >> i die in every "x-men" movie,
1:24 am
