[ laughter ]
president trump today signed a bill imposing new sanctions on russia, and an hour later in retaliation, vladimir putin signed a deal with netflix. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] watch till the end. politico yesterday published a previously withheld transcript of an interview between president trump and "the wall street journal" in which trump referred to his son-in-law and senior advisor jared kushner as a good boy. a good boy? [ laughter ] he's 36! when a woman turns 36 you consider that grounds for divorce. [ laughter ] according to axios, president trump has been trying to impress his new white house chief of staff john kelly by acting sharper in meetings and rattling off stats. so far, none have been right, but bless him, he's trying. "dogs are boys and cats are girls. dancing causes brain damage. the capital of florida is mar-a-lago. are you hearing ,
krispy kreme announced it will release a limited edition reese's doughnut with reese's peanut butter cream filling, dipped in chocolate icing, and topped with a chocolate and peanut butter drizzle. wow! it used to be only prisoners got to choose their last meal. [ laughter ] there was a story in "vanity fair" yesterday that claims the queen of england has four alcoholic beverages every day. our writers are pretty delighted by that, so here's one joke for each drink. number one, according to "vanity fair," the queen of england has four alcoholic beverages every day and alcohol takes a toll on you. she's only 38-years-old. [ laughter ] according to "vanity fair," the queen of england has four alcoholic beverages every day. well, that explains the hat. [ laughter ] i want that one! bring me that hat! that hat's not appropriate, ma'am. brin!
joke three. according to "vanity fair," the queen of england has four alcoholic beverages every day including a glass of champagne before bed. champagne before bed? who does she think she is? herself? [ laughter ] that one was my favorite. i'm just going to be honest.

amber ruffin in a segment we call "amber says what." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> you guys, things have been crazy! first of all, no one works in the white house anymore. [ light laughter ] sean spicer was out, and i was, like, what? then reince priebus was out, and i was, like, what? then to top it all off scaramucci was out after just ten days and i was, like, what? but then i found out steve bannon was still working there, and i was, like, what? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] and then i found out the boy scouts invited trump to give a speech, and i was, like, ha, ha, ha, why! [ light laughter ] then he started talking to these children about a guy getting laid on a yacht, and i was, like, ha, ha, ha, what? then he had those kids booing obama, and i was, like, ha, ha, what?
then the people who made "game of thrones" announced they're working on another show called "confederate" that imagines if the south had successfully seceded from the union and slavery had never been abolished. i heard that and was, like, what the [ bleep ]? [ cheers and applause ] but then amazon announced that they were also working on a show called "black america" that imagines if newly freed slaves had formed their own nation, and i was, like, what, a new and interesting idea. [ laughter ] then the best thing in the world happened. during a hearing of the house financial services committee, representative maxine waters asked treasury secretary steve mnuchin why she hadn't -- why he hadn't responded to a letter she had sent him. watch. >> everything that you -- >> thank you very much for that. i don't want to take my time -- >> i'll also appreciate the opportunity -- >> i'm reclaiming mye.
>> several times -- >> reclaiming my time. reclaiming my time. >> the time belongs to the gentle lady from california. >> with the house -- >> reclaiming my time. reclaiming my time. >> tertiary -- >> reclaiming my time. >> okay. >> reclaiming my time. >> mr. chairman, i thought when you read the rules you acknowledged that i shouldn't be interrupted, and that i would have -- >> reclaiming my time. what he failed to tell you was when you are on my time i can reclaim it. [ laughter ] >> oh! [ cheers and applause ] i saw that and i was, like, what? better way to shut a fool up. then, they voted against the repeal of obamacare, and i was, like, what, what? then everyone else was, like, john mccain voted no. he saved us and i was, like, what about susan collins and lisa murkowski, [ cheers and applause ] and yesterday i read that the justice department is
investigating affirmative action in college admissions and i was, like, good, we need more affirmative action. but then i found out that the trump administration is going to use resources allocated for civil rights to investigate colleges for discriminating against white people. then i said what so fast it broke the sound barrier. it was like this. what? [ laughter ] that worked well. [ applause ] but hey, i'm all for white people getting an education. then there won't be so many people voting for trump. this has been "amber says what." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: ladies and gentlemen, give it up for amber ruffin. >> reclaiming my time! reclaiming my time. [ laughter ] reclaiming my time. amber ruffin, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: we ha g
night. he's starring with his sons in a fantastic new show on a&e, "the lowe files," rob lowe is here tonight, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] he is here to chat with me about his new netflix comedy special, "brad paisley's comedy rodeo" as well as perform a track from his 11th studio album, "love and war," my friend brad paisley is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] before we get to all of that, after a series of major staff shake-ups, it seems like the white house is now in total disarray. trump is counting on his new chief of staff general john kelly to restore order, but new revelations about the russia scandal may make that more difficult. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: in just a week and a half we've seen the ouster of former white house press secretary sean spicer and former white house chief of staff reince priebus as well as former communications director and future casino greeter anthony scaramucci.
scaramagio. have a wonderful night. may you be very lucky. hey, try the prime rib. you look fantastic. [ laughter ] things are so crazy now that even reporters don't know what to ask as sarah huckabee sanders found on monday, after the scaramucci news broke. >> and with that, i'll take your questions. >> sarah. >> sarah. >> what happened, sarah? what happened? >> seth: it can't be good that the press corps sounds like they just woke up still drunk in a vegas hotel. sarah, what happened? [ laughter ] the last thing i remember is there was someone named the mooch yelling at someone named the priebus? well, what happened was scaramucci was fired when trump brought in a new chief of staff, the former secretary of homeland security and marine corps general john kelly. the assumption, of course, was that trump was bringing in kelly to impose discipline and put an end to the infighting that has plagued the administration. although when he introduced him at a cabinet meeting on monday, trump seemed to set slightly different expectations for how kelly's appointment would affect things at the white house.
>> i predict that general kelly will go down in terms of the position of chief of staff one of the great ever and we're going to have a good time. [ laughter ] >> seth: a good time? i'm sorry, but john kelly doesn't look like a guy you bring in to have a good time. [ light laughter ] john kelly looks like a guy who introduces himself by saying, "i'm not here to have a good time." [ laughter ] john kelly looks like his idea of a good time is reading a tom clancy novel out loud to a 14-year-old bloodhound. [ light laughter ] he looks like a guy who uses good time as an insult. "you and your good time buddies better hit the bricks." of course, the chaos in the white house is not a theoretical issue. it will have immediate consequences for the government's ability to handle major national security matters like, for example, north korea, which test-fired another missile last week. trump was asked about north korea after the cabinet meeting and his answer wasn't very reassuring. >> we'll hane
north -- it will be handled. >> seth: i'm sorry, but i'm not comforted by that. trump saying it will be handled is like chris christie saying "i never lose my cool." [ laughter ] in fact, i'm not sure i'd trust trump's skill with diplomacy just in general. because in a recent "wall street journal" article he described his phone calls with foreign leaders and it was not confidence inspiring. trump was talking about how our economy compares to the economies of other major countries. "you know, a lot of people say -- they say, well, but the united states is large. and then you call places like malaysia, indonesia, and you say, you know, how many people do you have? and it's pretty amazing how many people they have." [ laughter ] he's not a diplomat, he's a restaurant hostess. [ laughter ] "how many people do you have and is your whole party here?" [ laughter ] trump calls other countries and asks them how many people they have. because why use google when you can make an international call.
have, and also, while i've got you, how tall is kevin durant." [ laughter ] and yet, with everything on his plate, from white house infighting to looming international crises, trump seems, as always, consumed by trivial matters. for example, he seemed annoyed when a "wall street journal" reporter suggested that the reaction to his highly partisan speech to the boy scouts last week was mixed. "president trump -- did they like it? wall street journal -- it seemed mix. president trump -- they loved it. it wasn't -- it was no mix. that was a standing ovation. from the time i walked out on the stage because i know. and by the way, i'd be the first to admit mixed. i'm a guy that will tell you mixed." "for example, the 1.5 million people at my inauguration were mixed. it was about half people who were there and half people who weren't." [ cheers and applause ] i was very diverse. a very diverse crowd. when you're not lying about the boy scouts, trump of course is spending time at his golf courses and now we may know why. according to "golf" magazine he
specifically, trump was explaining to a group of club members why he spent so much time at his bedminster golf club in new jersey. chatting with some members before a recent round of golf, he explained his frequent appearances. "that white house is a real dump." [ light laughter ] well, i'm sure the white house seems a little understated when you're used to living in mr. t's jewelry box. [ laughter ] or maybe you just hate it because technically it is public housing. now -- [ cheers and applause ] one of kelly's -- one of kelly's first jobs will be to put an end to the constant infighting and chaos inside the white house. in fact, the dysfunction in the white house is now so bad that senior trump officials at the highest levels of the government, and this is true, apparently cannot tell the difference between real e-mails from colleagues and pranks. so this is a real story. a prankster sent several e-mails to high-level white house officials posing as other white house officials and he actually got responses.
>> high-level white house officials punked by an e-mail prankster in the united kingdom. >> all right, this is how easy it was to get the personal e-mail address of the white house official in charge of cybersecurity. the prankster, and i use that word loosely here, poses as jared kushner and writes to the official white house account of homeland security adviser tom bossert. this is what he writes, "tom, we are arranging a bit of a soiree towards the end of august. it would be great if you could make it. i promise food of at least comparable quality to that which we ate in iraq. should be a great evening." so, the real tom bossert responds. "thanks, jared. with a promise like that, i can't refuse. also --" and here's the kicker -- "if you ever need it, my personal e-mail is -- redacted. >> seth: he gave him more than the prankster was looking for. [ laughter ] the white house official in charge of cybersecurity gave his private e-mail address to a prankster. this whole time we've been worried about putin, but it turns out the u.s. government could be taken down by the jerky boys.
even the president's family was caught up in the prank, although some were apparently savvier than others. according to cnn, eric trump, too, was similarly hoodwinked by the prankster emailing as his older brother donald trump jr. but he soon caught on and responded, "i have sent this to law enforcement who will handle from here." you know it's bad when eric is the one who figures it out first. [ laughter ] "wait a minute! my brother would never e-mail me." [ laughter and applause ] unfortunately, the trump administration's problems with e-mail don't end there because now we have new information about the very real e-mail exchange with donald trump jr., in which he was offered dirt on hillary clinton from the russian government. as you may recall, don jr.'s story about those e-mails and the subsequent meeting changed several times. at first he claimed the meeting was primarily about adoptions, which turned out to be a lie. at the time president trump said he knew nothing about it, but now "the washington post" is reporting that trump actually dictated his son's misleading statement on that meeting with the russian lawyer.
responded to the story by claiming trump acted not out of a desire to cover up the story, but to help his son. >> the statement that don jr. issued is true. there is no inaccuracy in the statement. the president weighed in as any father would based on the limited information that he had. he certainly didn't dictate, but you know, like i said, he weighed in, offered suggestion like any father would do. >> seth: look, i don't know what kind of father trump is, but my son is only 16-months-old, and i've already been very clear with him. if he colludes with a foreign adversary to subvert an american election, he is on his own! [ laughter ] and i have -- [ cheers and applause ] you guys, i have suspicions because the other day i asked if he was ready for his bath and he said nyet. [ laughter ] [ bleep ] adorable, but it was still nyet. [ laughter ] so the white house is plagued by infighting, the russia scandal continues to grow, and our government is vulnerable to

i'm the definition of not exotic in america. >> seth: that's true. nobody says like, "oh, that's an interesting looking weird thing i've never seen before." >> yeah. they show up. they've got the hats, they've got chaps. i mean they're ready. >> seth: do they know that nobody wears chaps over here anymore? >> no. >> seth: okay. [ light laughter ] >> they think they're doing the right thing. it's fantastic though to go over there, because they just seem to love it. they're sort of starved for it in these countries. >> seth: but they also -- they're not just checking this out to see what country music's like. they know, they're huge fans. they know the words, they sing along? >> they speak way better english than my band. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> they're really -- i mean, it's their second language, but they're better at it than us. >> seth: yeah. no, it's really impressive. >> they know the words. it's really neat. i love going over there every now and then. >> seth: that's great. well, welcome home. this is also cool. i always know you're a fan of comedy. you host the cmas with carrie underwood. you guys are great. your songs, a lot of your songs are really funny, and this is cool that you're doing this netflix special.
tell us about that. >> yeah. you know, it's interesting. i love the idea that between songs is the challenge for the musician. you know, you get out there and it's, like -- i learned a long time ago that if you entertain them between songs it's gravy. it's like, people are like, "oh, wow! that was even entertaining." so i really worked on the comedy chops for a while and started hosting this thing at our comedy festival in nashville called the "wild west comedy festival", which that title makes no sense. >> seth: yeah. >> it's east, but we had a great time and i've got a bunch of comedians and we stand up there and tell a bunch of jokes and netflix approached us and said, "would you like to film that for a special?" and we did. and it's a blast. >> seth: well it's also -- i've been at concerts before. i've been to your concerts and there's also that thing of musicians when they tell a joke, the audiences love them because you're also a musician. >> right. >> seth: with comedians, if you bomb you can't say, all right, let me get you back with a song. [ laughter ] >> right. exactly. no. >> seth: yeah. >> and it's also the kind of thing whth
it's just so, it's so refreshing for them. as opposed to if they you and you're not funny, they got nothing. >> seth: nothing. [ laughter ] >> i mean absolutely. >> seth: well it also makes sense because i do feel, particularly with you, and i feel this is true of a lot of country music singers. i feel like your fan base really feels like they know you. like there's not a wall of stardom between the two. and because they know you, i think they really like, "oh, this is -- we're actually -- he's telling us jokes and he feels like he knows us, too." >> i think that's -- yeah it's an important thing about country music is we're not supposed to be the ones who are way out of touch and flying around on the private jets and everything even though we're completely out of touch. >> seth: yeah. >> absolutely. >> seth: you get a new hat every morning. >> yeah. exactly. no. >> seth: you throw it out in the garbage at the end of the day. >> i throw it away yeah, i cant be wearing. >> seth: you also -- you're really a great lyricist. >> thank you. >> seth: you're a fantastic guitar player. and you got to design your own guitar this year. >> yeah. >> seth: this is a fender? >> fender recently just came out with a brad paisley telecaster. >> seth: that's great. so how -- what do they -- when you design it, like what do they asking you for? what input do you gi
they're crazy. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. well i just feel like, can you tell them things that are crazy? >> what are they asking? >> seth: are you, like, "50 strings!" like what? [ laughter ] >> right, that would be interesting. >> seth: yeah, that would be good, right? >> no, basically, they want to basically make something that incorporates the things you like about their teles. >> seth: and now is that what you play? is that one of the things you play? >> it is. i'm going to play it tonight. >> seth: all right. that's great. that's very exciting. [ cheers and applause ] we talked about this on the show. the first time you were on the show, which was the very first week of the show. we met because you played -- you were kind enough to play at my wedding. >> i was, which -- >> seth: you played our first dance. i was desperate. [ audience ohs ] >> seth: it was -- and it was great. and my wife. you surprised my wife. >> seth: i did. >> i knew you were coming. and here's a photo to show exactly how surprised my wife was. there she is. [ laughter ] and i was saying this to you earlier today. it was heartbreaking because she had not looked that happy over the course of the entire day. [ laughter ] >> yeah, no she yeah. >> seth: i felt like the whole day she was looking at me like, "don't blow this." and then you showed up and it was, like, "ah!" [ laughter ]
>> it was really weird for me because i was approached -- i don't know, what was it, 48 hours? >> seth: yeah, you were not given a ton of time. >> i was, like, "this is a prank." [ laughter ] but i was a big fan. i think you're brilliant, and i thought it would be fun to go do. >> seth: it was great. and you played this beautiful song called "she's everything." >> i did. i did that. >> seth: and now i heard you actually have director's cuts of some of your songs. >> yeah. >> seth: which are you re-write lyrics. >> in the comedy special, actually. what we have here. >> seth: there you go. [ cheers ] >> one of the things that we -- that i did trying to figure out what the heck i was going to talk about -- was the director's cut. you know director's cuts in movies where they have the clips that didn't make the film. >> seth: yeah. >> because "she's everything" is a very sweet song. >> seth: it's a perfect like first dance at a wedding song. ♪ >> what if there's lines that are more realistic. especially now that you're married, you'll understand. >> seth: okay got it. so this sort of the director's cut marriage -- >> right, it's sort of -- ♪ she's a yellow pair of runnin' shoes a holey pair of jeans sh
she's a passive-aggressive little thing ♪ [ laughter ] ♪ she's almost everything i ever wanted almost everything i ♪ need you know what i mean? >> seth: yeah. >> as opposed to you know. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i'm not quite -- we're not quite there yet. >> right, right, right. that's one of the things in the comedy special that we do. is we dissect a few of the songs. like, you know, the current single that i'm doing. there's a few versions of that as well. >> seth: well that's great. well i'm so glad you're sticking around and doing some music for us. it's always great to see you, buddy. give it up for brad paisley.
