12:38 am
[ laughter ] president trump last night, announced the creation of a department called voice, which will deal specifically with crimes committed against americans by immigrants. not to be confused with "the voice," which deals with crimes against music committed by teenagers. [ light laughter ] former kentucky governor, steve basheer delivered the democratic response to president trump's address to congress last night. and i don't want to say it was dull, but this isn't a photograph. this is a video. [ laughter ] [ applause ] today was ash wednesday, the day when non-catholics say to catholics, "go like this." [ laughter ] oh. so sorry. chocolate maker hershey is reportedly expecting to cut its global workforce by about 15%. that's right.
12:39 am
for the first time ever, chocolate is giving up people for lent. [ laughter ] when asked by one the people you did this to, what that joke means. a lightning strike today created a hole in the runway at laguardia airport. so now even god is trying to put laguardia out of its misery. [ laughter and applause ] today was world math day. "yay," said a muffled voice from inside a locker. [ laughter ] "hey, let me out to celebrate!" a man in austria yesterday, tried to enter a court with a bag of cockroaches. "get those horrible creatures out of here," said the cockroaches about the lawyers. [ light laughter ] and finally, a new copy machine is being sold that allows people to print customized words and photos on their lattés. and guess who's excited about that?
12:40 am
ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight. she has a new stand-up special, on netflix "the leather special." she's one of the funniest people on earth, our friend, amy schumer is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] and also, from "rupaul's drag race" on vh1, rupaul is here, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] and we will have music from panic! at the disco. [ cheers and applause ] a great night. before we get to all that, donald trump addressed congress for the first time as president, last night. it was a restrained performance, which means once again the media salivated over the possibility of a more presidential trump. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] after a chaotic first month in which trump has already dipped to record low approval ratings, last night's speech was a major opportunity for him to potentially reset the narrative. and you can tell it was a momentous occasion, because as sp
12:41 am
upgraded from its normal sized countdown clock to a special super sized clock that took up almost half the screen. soon wolf blitzer is going to have surgery to get a new head. [ light laughter ] meanwhile, on msnbc, the anticipation was apparently so high, that the anchors were literally analyzing what paul ryan was eating and drinking. >> these guys are so happy. i've been watching, he just slipped a lifesaver into his mouth, the speaker of the house. he's been drinking water. he's doing everything that's available to him. of course water. i think he's having a hell of a time up there. >> seth: that's paul ryan having a hell of a time. "i'm on top of the world! room temperature water for all my friends." [ laughter ] also, he's drinking water, so he must be happy? that's not how you analyze politics. that's how you make sure your cat isn't dying. [ laughter ] "oh good he's drinking water. fever must be gone." and trump himself seemed to be aware of how important this speech was because as he was preparing to make his way to the capiin
12:42 am
and cameras were able to capture him practicing his speech to himself. >> come on we can do it. all the way. there we go, here we go, here we go. there he is. >> screen or paper? looks like paper. >> he's lipping it. he's doing it. >> he's practicing. >> yeah but he's actually voicing it. [ laughter ] >> no idea he's on television. >> no idea he's on television, and we're under way. >> look at this. you dirty dog. you let them take my picture. >> seth: they're talking like they're watching a gorilla at the zoo. [ laughter ] "oh, look at that. he's using sign language. he loves that tire." [ laughter ] when trump finally got to the capital and took the podium, he was as usual flanked by the vice president and speaker of the house who wore almost identical suits and ties. look at those two, they look like the twins from "the shining." [ laughter ] no, less creepy.
12:43 am
now, as we know trump has spent the last year and a half lowering the bar when it comes to public speaking. so the fact trump managed to sustain a muted tone, that for any other politician would be considered unremarkable and even a little boring, was itself seen as a huge victory last night. and look, there were plenty of voters who were impressed or reassured by his message as early polls have shown. but as usual, the media obsessed over their favorite topic, his tone. >> easily the most traditional speech he has given in public life. the most speech-like speech. >> the tone, the presidential demeanor. >> a reset in tone. >> a more sober tone. a more presidential tone. >> president trump tonight sounding presidential. >> i feel like tonight donald trump became the president of the united states. >> seth: although i bet some muslims and undocumented immigrants that would tell you he became president back in [ bleep ] january! [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] guys, seriously, do you ha -
12:44 am
we have been here many times before. for like a year and a half now. did you forget all the other times you said the exact same thing? let's go back to, i don't know, april of last year. >> you've seen tonight a new tone from donald trump. >> we're seeing a different donald trump these days. >> now his team is reaching out to the gop with the promise of a more presidential trump. >> the tone with donald trump tonight was so much more, so much different than i had seen just a couple weeks ago. he didn't call senator ted cruz "liein' ted." >> no nicknames. >> he called him senator cruz. >> you heard donald trump tonight sounding you tell me, more presidential? senator cruz, not liein' ted. did you notice that? >> seth: and maybe lucy really will let me kick the football this time. [ laughter and applause ] the pundit reviews -- the pundit reviews of last night's speech have demonstrated that despite all their tangles with the trump administration, and the relentless abuse they have gotten from trump himself, there are still many
12:45 am
you can see that just in the words they use to describe his performance. >> last night was a normal moment. >> look at what's a normal moment. >> a memorably normal speech. >> it was a pretty normal sounding speech. > political headline, trump tries on normal. >> seth: that's right. like a pair of pants, trump tried on normal and asked america, "does this make my ass look big?" [ laughter and applause ] now, trump's tone may well have been restrained but the substance of the speech was as divisive as before, from rhetoric about cracking down on immigration to his pledge to repeal obamacare. and you could tell it was divisive, not just from the policies but the faces on democrats. for example, there was liberal justice ilaina kagan, who had a look on her face like she was alone in the woods and heard a twig snap. [ light laughter ] and then there was house minority leader, nancy pelosi. watch her reaction when the camera cuts to her after a trump line on jobs. [ applause ]
12:46 am
[ laughter ] >> seth: she looks like a mom watching her daughter marry a biker with a face tattoo. [ laughter ] now, trump's speech focused mainly and his method of economic nationalism but provided very few details. for example, rather than explain the specifics of his jobs plan, he told this story about a meeting with harley davidson. >> i just met with officials and workers from a great american company, harley davidson. in fact, they proudly displayed five of their magnificent motorcycles, made in the usa, on the front lawn of the white house. and they wanted me to ride one, and i said, "no thank you." >> seth: of course not. trump can't ride a motorcycle. have you seen what the wind does to his hair? [ laughter ] i'm pretty sure after five minutes on a harley he'd look like michael chiklis. [ laughter ] so despite what you heard from the media about trump's performance, the speech was heavy on empty promises and light on substance.
12:47 am
democrats to respond. you might think now would be a good time to showcase some young and up and coming talent. a hotshot like cory booker or kirsten gillibrand. so who did they get? >> i'm steve basheer, i was governor of kentucky from 2007 to 2015. now, i'm a private citizen. >> seth: i'm sorry, so the democratic response was delivered by the survivors of a zombie apocalypse, huddled in an abounded diner. seriously, where the hell are you guys? >> i'm here in lexington, kentucky, some 400 miles from washington at a diner with some neighbors. >> seth: "in fact, i was just sitting here minding my own business when the democrats showed up with a camera and said, 'would you like to respond to the president's address to congress tonight?' and i said, 'surely you have someone younger or more exciting.' and they said, 'no, will you just do it?' and i said, 'i'll do it if you pay for my omelet.'" [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
12:48 am
sustain a more moderate tone last night, but he also offered the same empty solutions to nonexistent problems. let's not get fooled again, we've been here with trump before. to many, the speech sounded presidential. but to others, it sounded like a twig snapping in the woods. this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with more "late night."

[ light laughter ] back in my day, people didn't show up to town hall meetings to angrily yell at their congress person. no, if you wanted to disrespect your congress person, you did it the old- fashioned way, by not knowing who the hell they were.

and, but, even when i was in that style of drag, straight guys would look at me like, "hey, what's up?"

[ laughter ] >> seth: okay, got you. >> "is that me?" you know? >> seth: that's just a thing about you. it has nothing to do with drag. >> no, and i think, just being in these human bodies is such an incredible trip. i never got over the fact that i landed in a human body. so being in a human body, i want to play with all the colors, all the textures, and that's what "drag race" is all about. and i'm so excited. now we've moved to vh1 -- >> seth: yeah. >> which and more people get to watch it now. i had a show, a talk show on
