tv   Late Night With Seth Meyers  NBC  February 21, 2017 12:37am-1:38am PST

12:37 am
>> i met president obama when he was running for senator. he came to my studio, to wonderland studios with steve -- my good friend steve makiva. and we talked about me doing a a benefit for him for senator. and i went to chicago and did that. but i remember the night -- the last part of the night i said, "you know what? i know that you want to be senator, but let's pray that you become president of the united states. [ cheers and applause ] and you know, prayers do come true. and that was a magical moment. because i really believed from the very beginning, even before he was senator that he was going to be president. he had the right kind of spirit. and he was connected with not just, you know, those our age but millennials and people, period, of all ethnicities. and then to have a wonderful queen as his wife. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: you know, that's the story, that they first -- you
12:38 am
guys first got together because you liked stevie wonder. he was playing -- >> that was a prerequisite. he had to be able to play ball and he had to like stevie wonder. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: you're the whole reason this happened. you're the whole reason this happened. yes, stevie wonder. >> and i'm not mad about that. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i want to thank you so much for being here tonight. thank you guys for being here tonight. and of course, i want to thank the first lady michelle obama for being part of everything. [ cheers and applause ] thank the audience for being here today. you guys were fantastic. [ cheers and applause ] jerry seinfeld, dave chappelle. the roots, right there, from philadelphia, pennsylvania. [ cheers and applause ] stay tuned for "late night with seth meyers." thank you so much for watching. have a great night. i hope to see you tomorrow. bye, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪
12:39 am
♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> fred: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york. it's "late night" with seth meyers. tonight, anna kendrick. writer and director of "get out," jordan peele. music from old 97's. featuring the 8g band with andres forero. ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening. i'm seth meyers, and this is "late night." how's everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] yeah. it's great to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. today is president's day. and you just know trump was up at the crack of dawn, ready to open presents. [ laughter ]
12:40 am
"well, then they shouldn't call it that, because that's very confusing." [ light laughter ] the president took office one month ago today, and just look at how the job has already aged him. [ laughter ] that's right. [ applause ] that's right. president trump took office one month ago today. wow. it's hard to believe the past few years has only been a month. [ laughter ] a former swedish prime minister questioned president trump's false claims this weekend that there had been a terror attack in sweden, asking, quote, "what has he been smoking?" well, looking at him, i'd say, "ham?" [ laughter ] at a recent dinner, while president trump invited other attendees to order whatever they wanted, trump demanded chris christie have the white house meat loaf.
12:41 am
coincidently, white house meat loaf is also the position trump is considering him for. [ light laughter ] [ applause ] you need a meat loaf. senator john mccain criticized president trump's attack on the media yesterday and said that stifling the press is how dictators get started. said trump, "cool, and then, what do they do next?" [ laughter ] at a rally this weekend, president trump compared himself to abraham lincoln, who he claimed fought with the media and called them out. yep, that's who abraham lincoln was most famous for warring with, the media. [ laughter ] the north versus the media. [ applause ] a canadian teacher was suspended last week after giving her students instructions for making and injecting crystal meth. i'm sorry, suspended? [ laughter ]
12:42 am
what do you have to do to get fired in canada? [ light laughter ] buy it for them? "aye, we're going to have to give you the day off on account of the meth. and i hate to say it but you're officially on thin ice. [ laughter ] this is your ninth and next to last warning." [ light laughter ] according to a new study, the tray table is the dirtiest place on the airplane, and the place that sounds the dirtiest is still the cockpit. [ laughter ] yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. you're right and i'm wrong. [ laughter ] the cockpit. we were looking for the cockpit. and finally, a colorado man recently survived a 40-foot fall down a chimney while he was trying to make a parkour video with friends. it's the first known case of a person doing parkour and also having friends. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen we've got a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] she is one of our favorites here
12:43 am
at "late night." she's the star of the very funny "table 19," anna kendrick is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] our friend, anna kendrick. also, he is the director and writer of an incredible new movie, "get out." he is a very old friend of mine and i'm so happy to have him back on the show. jordan peele is here everybody. [ cheers and applause ] and we will have music from an alt country icon of a band. i have loved them for a very long time as well. old 97's are here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] so you guys, needless to say, you guys are here on a wonderful night. before we get to all of the that. with all of the chaos we've seen in the trump administration, you'd think trump would have spent the weekend at the white house, fixing his dysfunctional government. instead, he was in florida hitting the campaign trail. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] keeping tabs on trump can be very disorienting. on one hand, you've got the genuinely ominous things he's done from declaring the free
12:44 am
press enemy of the american people, to preemptively blaming a judge for future terror attacks. and then you've got the every day weirdness of life in the trump era. like this story about new jersey governor chris christie's visit to the white house last week. >> governor christie says president trump forced him to eat meatloaf when they dined together at the white house. >> this is what it's like to be with trump, okay. he says, "there's the menu, you guys order whatever you want." and then he says, "chris, you and i are going to have meatloaf." >> he tells you what you're eating. >> yeah, and i said, "well, we're going to have the meatloaf?" and he said, "i'm telling you, the meatloaf is fabulous." >> did you have the meat loaf? >> i did. >> it's emasculating. >> no it's not. >> another man tells you what you're eating and you eat it? unacceptable. i don't care who he is. >> it is the president. >> by the way, it is the president, a. >> and the president said you're eating the meat loaf. wouldn't you be like, "i'm an adult, i'll get what i want, thank you." >> i would go along with his recommendation. >> you would get the meatloaf? >> yeah. i mean, the guy eats there all the time, you would think -- and the meat loaf was good. >> seth: of course, the meatloaf was actually a second course for christie after trump made him swallow his pride. [ laughter and applause ]
12:45 am
also, also, that whole conversation sounded like mafia slang. you're not going to have to worry about chris christie anymore. let's just say, donnie made him eat the meatloaf. [ laughter ] so that's the weird stuff, but trump is also making major changes to foreign policy. for example, last week trump dropped the u.s. commitment to a two-state solution in the israeli/palestinian conflict, which is a huge deal. and certainly not something you want to do without consulting your foreign policy team first. but apparently, trump made the move without reviewing the specifics of a new strategy, with secretary of state, rex tillerson. tillerson himself was in the air when trump announced the change. even just getting in an airplane now is a suspenseful experience under trump. pilots are going to start giving updates on the state of the nation before they land. "it's a sunny 65 degrees in los angeles, and also, donald trump has deported all afghan hounds because he believes them to be the isis of dogs.
12:46 am
[ laughter ] and if you look out to the right, you will see that everything is on fire." [ laughter ] the trump white house has even stumbled when it comes to posting what should otherwise be noncontroversial content to social media. like this photo posted to the official president of the united states twitter account with the #makeamericagreatagain. look how white that photo is. if you print that photo out, you can use it again as a blank piece of paper. [ laughter ] [ applause ] it's like that old joke. what has 26 thumbs and no black friends? these guys. [ laughter ] even republicans in congress are apparently starting to get frustrated with the constant chaos in the trump administration. south dakota senator, john thune said there are things we want to get done here and this constant disruption and drumbeat is a distraction adding that he wanted the white house to get passed the launch stage. buddy, we are way passed the launch stage. the rocket exploded shortly
12:47 am
after take off and the emergency raft is currently floating somewhere in the pacific. [ laughter ] he posed for it. and the dysfunction that the trump administration also seems to be scaring off some people from working at the white house. after trumps national security advisor, michael flynn, resigned last week, trump offered the position to retired admiral robert harward. who is widely respected by officials in both parties. but harward rejected the offer. as cnn's jake tapper reported, a friend of harward's said he was reluctant to take the national security advisor job because the white house seemed so chaotic. said harward, "called the offer a [ bleep ] sandwich." [ light laughter ] "we have [ bleep ] sandwiches then why did we let chris christie have meatloaf? [ laughter and applause ] what's the point?" [ applause ] now, harward was asked by the white house to reconsider, which he did, but according to msnbc he said no a second time after watching the presidents' press conference on thursday. huh, what about that press
12:48 am
conference would make him not want to work for donald trump. >> you know what uranium is right? this thing called nuclear weapons and other things, like lots of things are done with uranium, including some bad things. [ laughter ] >> seth: can you imagine having to brief that guy on national security? [ light laughter ] "mr. president, iran is increasing its stockpiles of uranium." "whoa, whoa, whoa, slow down. what's iran?" [ laughter ] now today, lieutenant getneral, h.r. mcmaster, who has been widely praised, did accept the job of national security advisor. still, trump's press conference earned nearly universal criticism from the media. and trump responded to that criticism with this ominous tweet. "the fake news media failing new york times, nbc news, abc, cbs, cnn, is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the american people." referring to the press is the enemy of the people is the kind of thing you would expect to hear from an authoritarian ruler. but here's the thing, even when trump wants to come off as an authoritarian strong man, it turns out he's still a buffoon, because that tweet was actually a second draft.
12:49 am
the president originally tweeted and then deleted his first draft, "the fake news media failing new york times, cnn, nbc news and many more, is not my enemy, it's the enemy of the american people, sick." [ laughter ] so his big change was adding a few more news outlets and deleting the word sick. [ light laughter ] you know, when you have to double clutch on your authoritarian declarations, you sound less like a terrifying dictator and more like the guy at the bonfire who can almost play guitar? ♪ there's a lady who short ♪ no i'm sorry, i can do this better. ah, it's the [ bleep ] pick. [ laughter ] to press his case against the media, trump held a rally on saturday in florida, which his own white house called a campaign event. and it was clear the rally had one main goal, to continue trump's bashing of the free press and convinces his audience that he was the only one who can be relied on to tell them the truth. >> i also want to speak to you without the filter of the fake news. they have their own agenda, and their agenda is not your agenda.
12:50 am
we are not going to let the fake news tell us what to do, how to live or what to believe. in fact, thomas jefferson said, "nothing can be believed which is seen in a newspaper. truth itself," he said, "becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle." that was june 14th -- my birthday. [ laughter ] >> seth: my birthday. even when he's quoting a former president, he can't help but make it about himself. my birthday. as abraham lincoln said, "four score and seven years ago, which reminds me, seven years ago, i had four scores in one day, it was tremendous." and yet, as he does so often, trump transitions seamlessly from claiming that the media makes up fake stories to making up his own fake stories. for example, in defending his executive order banning refugees, he made this mysterious claim about an
12:51 am
incident that supposedly occurred on friday night in sweden. >> you look at what's happening in germany. you look at what's happening last night in sweden. sweden! who would believe this? sweden. >> seth: who would believe this? the answer is no one, because as fact checkers pointed out, no incident occurred in sweden on friday night. [ applause ] it turns out, what trump was referring to was not a terror attack in sweden, but a segment he saw on the night before on fox news about refugees in sweden. so trump literally saw something on fox news and confused it for reality. next thing you know, he's going to lament the terrible treatment of people with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. [ light laughter ] also it should be noted the swedish police officers interviewed for that documentary said their answers were misleadingly edited. and they did not stand behind it. in fact, trump's mysterious comments about sweden have also apparently baffled the swedish government, which requested a clarification and left the swedish people very confused.
12:52 am
>> now, those words about sweden sparked a quick backlash from officials in that country who wanted to know what he was talking about. >> this was front page news here on monday. it's also been the subject of a significant amount of ridicule online and just people you talk to here is making jokes. you know, what was donald trump referring to? >> seth: that's how bad things have gotten under trump. we're getting roasted by swedes now. [ laughter ] the swedish chef is like, "dude, even i don't understand a word you're saying." [ laughter and applause ] like, i can't believe they elected this smorgedy borg over there. [ laughter ] so between trump's press conference and his event in florida, trump has made a series of wild and unhinged public appearances over the last few days. but there has been at least on common theme. >> i want to find a friendly reporter. are you a friendly reporter? i'm here because i want to be among my friends.
12:53 am
>> seth: the president of the united states just wants a friend. you know, someone he can force to eat meatloaf. [ light laughter ] and at his rally on saturday, he seemed to finally find one when he spotted a supporter in the audience who he seen on tv complimenting him and called him up on stage. >> i saw this man on television just now. you. i just saw him on television. he said, "i love trump. let trump do what i has to do." that's my guy right there. that's okay. let him up. let him up. i'm not worried about him. i'm only worried he's going to give me a kiss. hop over the fence. come on. he can do it. this guy's in good shape. look at him. [ cheers and applause ] a star is born. a star is born. >> seth: buddy, if you'd just been a little quicker, you could have been our new national security advisor. [ laughter and applause ] this has been "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with anna kendrick, everybody.

1:03 am
something nice off the registry. >> seth: right. >> so, like that clip is -- i love that clip because it's that moment where you know you're losing an argument when you go to that place of, "you're not crazy." or "i'm not crazy, you're crazy." >> seth: yeah. >> and it's -- in that moment, she's like, "i'm not pathetic, you're pathetic. everybody's pathetic." and, you know, she's losing that argument. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: do you -- are you somebody who -- i assume you're not usually at the lousy table when you go to weddings. do you like weddings? >> oh, i try not to get invited to weddings. >> seth: okay.
