tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC November 10, 2016 12:37am-1:38am PST
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- wendy williams, host of msnbc's "all in," chris hayes, music from lukas graham, featuring the 8g band with keith carlock. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. >> seth: good evening, everybody. how are we doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] well that was a real grab in the [ bleep ] [ laughter ] and i'm sorry to use foul language like that but last i checked the electoral college seems to be fine with it.
[ laughter ] you know, we have been talking about donald trump on this show for 18 months and one of the things i've tried to make clear over those 18 months is how i have been wrong about him at every turn. when he first came down the escalator at trump tower and announced i boldly said on this show he was a stunt and he would never really run. i then said he would never win the gop nomination and i certainly didn't think he would be our next president but the good news is based on this pattern of me being wrong on every one of my donald trump predictions he's probably going to be a great [ bleep ] president. [ laughter and applause ] let's just hope the trajectory holds. anyways i think i was not alone in watching the election last night. my wife and i went to watch the election returns at a friend's house and before we left we put our 8-month-old son to bed and i was holding him and i said to him when you wake up tomorrow morning we might have our first
female president and then when we came home around midnight i went into his room and shook his crib until he woke up and screamed, we have to get out of here! [ laughter ] and then my wife pointed out that wasn't productive and she was right. i'm willing to admit that she was right. so i recalibrated and i told him that for the first time in our history our president would be a steak salesman. [ laughter ] and that seemed to calm him down. then we got into bed my wife and i and our dog frisbee, who's a seven-pound italian greyhound, she jumped into bed with us and usually she provides great comfort to us but last night frisbee was skittish because being italian she doesn't know if she gets to stay. [ laughter ] so we had to calm her down too. [ applause ] but i will say this morning i realized how lucky we were because an 8-month-old was the perfect age child to have
because while my wife and i were sitting at the kitchen table solemnly talking about what all of this meant -- all this meant, he was just happily going to town oa pear. [ light laughter ] we cut up a piece of pear, we're discussing the future of the supreme court and he was just smiling and eating that pear. and you could tell he was thinking "i don't know what you two are talking about, but i'm with pear." [ light laughter ] but with that said i do really feel for the parents who had to explain this to their kids this morning. especially parents with daughters because a lot of them like me probably thought hillary would be our first woman president. but she won't be. but that does mean -- that does mean that someone's daughter is out there right now who will one day have that title. [ cheers and applause ] and maybe -- maybe you're a woman who is currently a senator. maybe you're still in college. hopefully, you're not a toddler but who knows with the way
things went last night, who knows? the fact is we don't know who you are but i imagine this moment today will be a defining one for you. one that will make you work harder and strive farther and whoever you are i hope i live to see your inauguration and i hope my mom does too. she was really excited yesterday and i was really sad for her. my mom's name happens to be hillary. it hasn't always been that. she just changed it to whatever -- [ light laughter ] whatever democrat is running for president. it's really weird. had to call her barrack for eight years. but good news to our first woman president whoever you are, where ever you are, you may have been rooting for hillary but now you can still be the first woman president and first is so much better than second. that is the difference between george washington and john adams. you either end up on money or paul giamatti plays you in a movie.
[ laughter and applause ] so whoever you are, where ever you are, go get it. i felt a lot of emotions last night and into today. some sadness. some anger. some fear. but i'm also aware that those are the same emotions a lot of trump supporters felt emotions that led them to make their choice and it would be wrong for me to think my emotions are somehow more authentic than their emotions. we're always better as a society when we have empathy for one another so i would just say -- i would like to say to those trump voters congratulations. i sincerely hope he addresses your concerns. i sincerely hope that if you felt forgotten he won't forget you now. as a white man i also know that any emotions i'm feeling are likely a fraction of those being felt by the lgbtq community, african-americans, hispanic-americans, muslim-americans, any number of the immigrant communities so vital to our country so hopefully the trump administration and trump
supporters will be compassionate to them. because they need your compassion and in general i am hopeful for president trump because hope is always the best possible path to take and one thing that makes me hopeful is we know from interviews he has given over the years that he has, at any given point, held every position on every issue. [ light laughter ] he has been pro-choice, pro-life, for the iraq war, against the iraq war. pretty much his only consistent position has been anti-rosie o'donnell. [ laughter ] so i'm hopeful that he is not actually a racist and that he just used racist rhetoric to court voters because when you're courting someone you're always willing to pretend you're something you're not. for example, when you first start dating someone you'll agree to go apple picking. you'll take cute pictures and maybe when you get home you'll bake a pie together but once you're officially a couple, you're not going apple picking anymore. and when they ask you why, you say because, "i hate apple picking.
i was just pretending i liked it to trick you." and let me make it clear i am in no way trying to say that racism is as bad as apple picking. [ light laughter ] [ applause ] but again i can't stress how wrong i've been about the trump campaign just to give you a sense of how wrong, this past june when trump was behind in the polls we made him an offer that if he dropped out nbc would give him a 13-episode show where he could play a fictional president. now, because the show is on nbc, it would have to be called "chicago president." [ light laughter ] and we thought he would jump at the opportunity because we thought he might not actually want to be president. well after last night's results, i just want to say to donald trump, our offer still stands. [ laughter ] come on. [ cheers and applause ] you didn't think -- you didn't think you were going to win this thing either and i'm guessing that right now you are spinning out. you're probably looking at a map
of the united states and thinking, "wait, how long does this wall have to be?" and i can't imagine the people you had to call this morning to say, "hey, i guess trump tv is on hold for now." "why? because i have to be the president." not to mention the fact that you're going to have to give rudy guilliani a job and then hang out with him and i don't have to tell you this, he is bat-[ bleep ] crazy. [ laughter and applause ] you'll come up with something. just tell people you have health issues and can't do the job because for the last year we have only seen you eating out of bowls and buckets. we will believe that. so we are upping our offer to a 22 episode order and we're giving you the coveted 10:00 p.m. monday slot which means you'll be on right after "the voice." and this offer stands until inauguration day. think about it. [ cheers and applause ] now, if your a hillary supporter last night was rough but there are a few good pieces of news. tammy duckworth, an asian-american war hero was elected to the senate in illinois.
[ cheers and applause ] in minnesota, former refugee, ilhan omar became the first somali-american lawmaker in history. and in california -- [ scattered applause ] yeah. and in california, they legalized recreational weed and not a minute too soon. [ cheers and applause ] plus, legalizing recreational weed in california immediately cured everyone in the state of their glaucoma. [ laughter ] demackracy -- excuse me, democracy is a fantastic thing even when it doesn't go your way. it gives everyone in america a voice and last night those voices spoke so i want to say to president-elect trump. congratulations to melania and the new first family. congratulations. and to vladimir putin and everyone in russia -- [ speaking russian ] [ laughter and applause ] in closing, donald trump made a lot of promises as to what he's going to do in the next four years and now we get to see if he will. if he can fulfill them and so i
would just like to make one promise to him, we here at late night will be watching you. we'll be right back.

all right. that's good to hear. in that case let's get to the news. well, it looks like america has finally answered jeff foxworthy's question. [ laughter ] donald trump won the presidential election last night, and then out of habit, kellyanne conway said "no he didn't. no he didn't, anderson." after her stunning loss to donald trump, hillary clinton this morning delivered her concession speech. no, not that kind of concessions. get out of here! [ laughter ] president obama congratulated donald trump in a speech today, and reminded the country that we are all on the same team. it's just that now, half of us are on defense. [ laughter ] [ applause ] president obama has invited donald trump to the white house on thursday, to discuss transition plans and trump is pretty nervous. he's never been to a black man's
house before. [ laughter ] [ audience oohs ] "yo' house is very nice. that's how you say it, right? yo' house?" [ laughter ] donald trump will reportedly name his chief of staff in the next two weeks. he is looking for someone who can really "putin" the hours. [ laughter and applause ] apple began selling refurbished iphones in it's online store yesterday. which is good news, for the 40 million people who smashed their screens last night. [ laughter ] voters -- [ applause ] voters in arizona, colorado, maine and washington, approved increases to minimum wage rates to at least $12 an hour by 2020. which is good news for all those pollsters who will now be working at burger king. [ laughter ] [ scattered applause ] a chef in california recently started a catering business that
serves dishes infused with marijuana. the chef said the company started as a joke, then got really scary, but then turned back to a joke again. [ laughter and applause ] and finally a "game of thrones" author george r.r. martin posted a letter responding to last night's election, and ended it by writing "winter is coming, i told you so." [ laughter ] said his fans, "oh, so you have time to write a letter." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight. i am so very happy. i feel like we have the perfect two guests for the kind of show we need to have this evening. first from the "wendy williams show", wendy williams is here. [ cheers and applause ] and that's going to be straight up no election talk. if you are done with the election, you will enjoy me and wendy williams. she's going to catch me up on pop culture. it's going to be great. cause' i have not been paying attention to that. [ light laughter ] then we've got emmy winning host of msnbc's "all in with chris hayes." he's back on the show.

[ cheers and applause ] and all we're going to do is talk about the election, so were getting right back into it. and then we'll have music from an incredible danish band, lukas graham is here. [ cheers and applause ] we're very happy, about that. so let's get started. our first guest tonight is a "new york times" best selling author and host of the popular daytime talk show "the wendy williams show" which airs weekdays in syndication. please welcome back to the show our friend, wendy williams, everybody. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: wendy. >> oh, seth! >> seth: oh, i'm so happy to have your light, here in our studio tonight. >> oh, thank you. >> seth: it's great to have you. and you're such a busy person, and yet you made time for us. >> well, seth, thank you for the

>> seth: so, you know -- you know, here we are. do you -- this is not -- >> we're not talking about the cubs anymore? >> seth: no we've moved on. >> oh, okay, okay. >> seth: so this -- do you have a theory as to what happened? because obviously this is not what people predicted going into the night. i mean, they predicted -- >> yeah. >> seth: something close but maybe not obviously this result. so what is your theory as to what happened? >> you know, i think, look it is over determined in certain ways. >> seth: sure. >> there's a million things happen to bring about this moment. the most succinct explanation is that several million voters mostly white working class voters from pennsylvania up through ohio, michigan and wisconsin who had voted for barack obama, voted for donald trump. i mean, that's what happened. >> seth: yeah. >> in a narrow political analysis sense. in a broader sense, we have seen this roiling crisis of authority in the country. we have seen elites fail. we have seen people that were supposed to know what they were
talking about not know what they were talking about time and time and time again and it has created this chasm of distrust into which has entered donald trump. >> seth: and you actually wrote a book called "twilight of the elites" which talked about a lot of this. that strangely predicted a lot of this and you just mentioned distrust and there is a core distrust of the media, of our leaders, of even military leaders. like there's in -- what -- does that trust ever come back or is it lost? >> that's in some ways the project, right? i mean, the project has to be building back up some of that very necessary trust. now a healthy distrust is good. right? >> seth: mhmm. >> and i think a lot of people learn that with the war in the iraq or the financial crisis, right? i mean there was a lot of really smart authoritative people saying we've got these models about housing derivatives and believe us this is going to work. they're wrong. but when you, sort of, weaponize that distrust. when you spread it everywhere, you actually lose the ability to form knowledge. and i mean this in a really literal sense. like, the things that you
seth meyers know are actually just things that you read or heard from a trusted source. >> seth: mhmm. >> you know, like you haven't conducted the experiments, right? >> seth: no. no field work. >> you have not done the field work. you know it because of trust and when that gets severed you end up in a situation in which the entire public discourse goes completely, completely haywire. >> seth: you know, you mentioned the financial crisis and the housing crisis and that swath of this country that you just mentioned that went from obama to trump, do you think that's one of the core reasons that just not enough was done for those people? >> yeah, i think that's it. i think it's also you can't talk about the race without talking race. >> seth: mhmm. >> i mean, trump ran on an explicitly nationalist sort of white identity politics run and that had a lot to do it with too. so you can't divorce these two. there's huge fights happening
now with people. >> seth: of course. >> about which of these two it was. i think both of them together particularly in that region of the country was a lot of what did it. >> seth: trump himself has been calling himself mr. brexit which is a very catchy nickname. >> yes. [ light laughter ] >> seth: how much because it seems like such a direct parallel. >> it is striking. i mean, the biggest parallel are these, you have both in brexit and in trump here a sort of popular front across these different strains of society. newspaper editorials. fortune 500 ceos, leaders of major parties saying "do not. no. absolutely not. this is nuts. this is nuts." and the voters saying "no. no, we want this." now one little thing we should say is that hillary clinton is going to end up with more votes than donald trump. >> seth: mhmm. >> and it's a little weird to analyze the race as producing some huge mandate when like more people will have voted for hillary clinton than will have voted for donald trump. >> seth: sure. >> but in both cases you had this kind of all of the gate keepers saying to voters,
"believe me you want to do this." and voters saying "yeah." >> seth: well they effectively did that i think. >> i mean, yeah. >> seth: the other thing, i guess now, is you look at obama's legacy what of his accomplishments is now most at risk? do we see the end of obamacare? >> yeah. i mean, we're gonna see -- they will move very quickly to repeal obamacare there's a question about whether they'll do it through reconciliation which is a process that allows them to kind of move around the filibuster. you know, one of the things i think to think about is what happens after every election, i remember in 2004 it was republicans were going to rule forever and two years later they lost the house in a landslide. >> seth: mhmm. >> in 2008 it was democrats have all three branches of government. republicans are an extinct species and six months later the tea party, right? if they kick 20 million people off of healthcare there will be a political reaction to that. the way this country works divided as we are as polarized as we are every action produces an opposite reaction and so there's a lot on the chopping block.
they're gonna go after financial reforms, obamacare, the iran deal, the executive orders that keep people in this country who are brought here as children, the climate accords. all of that is going to go, boom boom boom boom boom. but also all of that will be met with political resistance. >> seth: i want to shift to -- away from this just so we can end on anything else. [ laughter ] >> was i that bad? >> seth: just anything else. no! [ cheers and applause ] look this is -- this is not your fault. but, you know, i do want to talk about real quick, because we mentioned races and the dividing of it. and obviously trump ran a campaign that had a lot of racist rhetoric. how do we frame all the people that voted for trump? because a lot of those people are not racist. >> yeah, i think -- i don't think talking about the people that voted for trump as racist or not is useful. >> seth: i agree. >> i think politics is addition and not subtraction. so if you're not on the side of trump, i think stigma or sort of
calling people racist is probably not productive. also though people shouldn't get it twisted. about calling what he represented and what he called for what it was. >> seth: yeah. >> he wanted to ban a million muslims from the country. if you get up and you say "i want to ban all the jews from coming into the country." people know what that means. that doesn't go away. that doesn't get erased. it got taken off his website today. no one has to be shy about calling that what it is. >> seth: yeah. >> people vote for candidates for all kinds of reasons. the voters are our fellow citizens. >> seth: yeah. >> and, you know, people are adults. they have to be held to account and responsible for the vote they cast and what they do as citizens but also. i think folks should focus their analysis, their frustration, their anger, their political motivation at the folks with power because there are a lot of them to focus on now. >> seth: so moving on so you in high school. >> yes. >> seth: you went to high school with lin-manuel miranda. >> yeah! have you heard of him? >> seth: i have, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> that's so weird you know
about him. >> seth: i just heard about him. he's in "falsettos" right? >> yes. yeah. >> seth: you -- but you directed him in high school? >> i directed -- i directed the first ever lin-manuel miranda musical. >> seth: what was his first ever musical about? >> it was called "nightmare in d major." >> seth: okay. >> it was the protagonist who had a nightmare that involved a love he had lost and the villain was the small fetal pig that you dissect in biology class in high school. >> seth: yeah. >> and he wrote it for -- in high school we were very good friends. we did high school theater together and he wrote it for our sort of student produced theater group and it's the first musical he ever wrote and i directed it. >> seth: that sounds better than "hamilton." well that is an incredible check in your legacy. so look we have -- you have that -- >> it's the most important thing i've ever done. >> seth: you have that. that was great. >> yeah. >> seth: you have the cubs that was great. >> yes. >> seth: two out of three. >> yeah, exactly. >> seth: two out of three, chris. chris hayes, everybody.
