tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC June 6, 2018 1:03am-2:03am PDT
featuring the 8g band with carter mclean. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. >> seth: good evening, i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] that is fantastic to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. a source has told axios that president trump is triggered by the leaks about special counsel robert mueller's investigation, and his instinct is always to be on the offensive. so yeah, real good time to meet with the leader of north korea. [ laughter ] before he leaves, let's also give him a bunch of red bull and remind him hillary won the popular vote. [ laughter ] "ahh! let me negotiate." [ laughter ] president trump tweeted today quote "there was no collusion. it is a hoax, and there is no obstruction of justice. that is a setup and trap."
but it's not trump's fault he tweeted that, it's just what his iphone auto corrects to when he types "hello." [ laughter ] "you know me so well. [ laughter ] you learned me, phone." [ laughter ] white house special counsel ty cobb will reportedly be leaving president trump's legal team at the end of the month. which is weird, because to look at him, i would have thought he left 105 years ago. [ laughter ] president trump said yesterday he is seriously thinking of creating a sixth branch of the military called "the space force." the space force is also what he calls his greeting style. [ laughter and applause ] that's right. [ cheers and applause ] hmm, a lot of space force fans here tonight. that's right, president trump wants to create a sixth branth -- branch of the military called "the space force." they'll patrol the distant
reaches between him and melania. [ audience ohs ] [ laughter and applause ] "melania! can you hear me across the space force?" [ laughter ] a new jersey farm has come out with a ham-flavored ice cream. so if you like ham, and you like ice cream, you're still going to hate this. [ laughter ] after facing backlash for saying, "slavery was a choice," kanye west defended himself last night and tweeted a quote attributed to harriet tubman, that has been proven to be fake. but we already knew that. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] and finally, over the past several weeks kanye west has expressed controversial opinions about racism in america. this culminated yesterday in a visit to tmz during which kanye described slavery as a choice.
now, commenting on a black man's opinions about slavery is not something i'm comfortable doing. >> but i am! [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: this is -- this is one of our writers, amber ruffin. >> kanye, i'm sure you think what you're doing right now is fun. but your words are being used as fuel for the alt-right movement. and my biggest concern is your words will affect how black children see themselves. you're telling them that it is their fault that they are at a disadvantage. so now i have no choice but to counteract all the harm you've done. >> seth: how are you going to do that? >> by speaking directly to the hearts of young people. using the most powerful art form known to man. rap. hit it! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: amber! hey, amber, are you even good at rapping? >> no, i'm not. ♪
woo! ah come on ah come on please stop clapping. ♪ african american's history should be a great source of pride surviving the atrocity ♪ ♪ of slavery to thrive as part of a society is something black people should all be proud of ♪ huh! [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: um -- amber, when is the last time you heard a rap song? >> 1990. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] pretty sure they had rhymes in 1990. [ laughter ] >> seth, this is for the children! [ laughter ] uh-ha-ha. ♪ to imply that slaves had a choice minimizing slavery and undercuts the strength ♪ ♪ of the black community something that kanye used to be a part of ♪
huh! [ laughter ] >> seth: so -- ♪ amber, these are very important points, but i just don't know if this is the coolest way to get those points across. >> too late! [ laughter ] i've already committed! ♪ kanye's scary comments are a prime example of what happens when you have no black friends ♪ [ laughter ] ♪ you can't just repeat what your rich white friends say your music may be fresh ♪ ♪ but your views on race are garbage ♪ huh! [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: give it up for amber ruffin, everybody! [ cheers and applause ] we've got a great show for you tonight. she's the star of "quantico" on abc. priyanka chopra is joining us tonight! [ cheers and applause ]
he's a fantastic writer, a great s hilarious "a.p. bio."or of mike o'brien is on the show, back with us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] and music from a great rock band, lord huron, so you're here on a fantastic evening. [ cheers and applause ] before we get to all that, it seems like everyone who gets close to president trump eventually turns on him. and we're seeing that play out yet again this week, with everyone from his chief of staff to his former personal doctor. for more on this it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: trump is supposed to be focusing on a series of major foreign policy issues right now, but the constant swirl of chaos around him never seems to stop. yesterday, for example, we got a bizarre story about trump's former personal doctor, harold bornstein. remember this, guy? well, he's back in the news because yesterday this happened. >> donald trump's doctor for more than 35 years. tonight, harold bornstein, is telling nbc news details about the raid, as he describes it,
that abruptly ended that relationship. bornstein says two weeks after the inauguration, three men including mr. trump's long time personal bodyguard, keith schiller, then the head of oval office operations, and the top lawyer for the president's business, the trump organization, showed up unannounced at bornstein's manhattan office and took all the president's medical records. the incident happened two days after bornstein provided private medical information to "the new york times," revealing that for years he'd prescribed mr. trump propecia, a hair growth medication. [ laughter ] >> seth: imagine being so sensitive about your hair when this is your hair. [ laughter ] "i want people to think, nature did thiso me." [ laughter ] now the raid of bornstein's office wasn't just limited to trump's medical records. they even made him take down photos of the president that bornstein had in his office. >> keith schiller and another man showed up unannounced asking for the records, and even a photo of donald trump and dr. bornstein together that was hanging on the
wall in the waiting room. that was taken down. dr. bornstein says they asked him to take that picture down. >> seth: in fairness, that might have just been a business tip. [ laughter ] no one wants to go to their doctor's office and see a picture of their doctor with donald trump. [ laughter ] that's like going to your lawyer's office and seeing a picture of your lawyer with donald trump. [ laughter and applause ] so did the president of the united states really order the personal bodyguard to raid a doctor's office over some hair growth medication? bornstein seems to think so. yesterday he gave a rare interview to nbc news explaining what happened. >> what exactly were they looking for? >> well, his medical records, his pictures, anything they could find. they must have been here for 25 to 30 minutes. well, it created a lot of chaos. i couldn't believe anybody was making a big deal about a drug that's to grow his hair, which seemed to be so important. and it certainly is not a breach of medical trust to tell
somebody they take propecia to grow their hair. what's the matter with that? >> seth: "anyway -- i got to go do my puppet show." [ laughter ] you know, i might believe trump didn't use propecia if the doctor who allegedly gave it to him didn't have the exact same hair. [ laughter ] i'm sorry, is this guy really a doctor? look at him. he looks like a cross between bruce vilanch and diane keaton. [ laughter and applause ] if you're supposed to dress for the job you want, i think he wants to be a grateful dead roadie, or a manager at a guitar center. [ laughter ] he looks like donald trump if trump were in the witness protection program. [ laughter ] when robert mueller shows up with an arrest warrant, michael cohen's going to give bornstein a check for $130,000 and say, "you need to switch places with the donald." [ laughter ] two more. he looks like that guy at the
gym whose towel only goes three quarters around. [ laughter ] he looks like he blow dries his hair with an industrial space heater. [ laughter ] now you might remember bornstein as the doctor who famously declared during the 2016 campaign that, "if elected, mr. trump, i can say unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to presidency." well, during this new interview, bornstein was asked to explain how he could possibly justify such a grandiose assessment, and told nbc news, "i like that sentence, to be quite honest with you. and all the rest of them are either sick or dead." [ laughter ] did you forget obama? [ laughter ] though i have a feeling the last president bornstein remembers is l.b.j. [ light laughter ] "all i remember is we were protesting the vietnam war, i lit up joint, and then i was doing this interview." [ laughter ] but as it turns out, bornstein didn't actually write that letter about trump's health. last night he told cnn that trump himself dictated that whole letter. "i didn't write that letter." so how serious is all of this? well, when cbs contacted bornstein after the original nbc
story, he declined to do an interview, but compared this story to the scandal that brought down richard nixon. according to cbs, bornstein refused an interview but said, "that nbc piece was a pretty good story." he signed off with, "sweetheart, this is watergate, goodbye." [ light laughter ] but while this story is fun to joke about, it's also serious because we now know the only two people who told us trump was healthy are a guy who had to withdraw his nomination, and fraggle doc. [ laughter and applause ] and even -- even if we leave it to the nonmedical professionals, trump's mental capacity isn't exactly getting rave reviews. for example, it was reported this week that trumps chief of staff, john kelly, has privately insulted trump's intelligence and warned other national security officials that they needed to save trump from himself. >> we begin tonight with breaking news in what looks like it could be the beginning of the end for the president's chief of staff, john kelly. multiple current and former white house officials telling
nbc news that kelly has called the president an idiot multiple times. >> seth: now honestly, everybody calls their boss an idiot from time to time. except me, of course. i love you, papa! [ laughter and applause ] but with trump -- it seems to happen constantly. rex tillerson called him a moron, h.r. mcmaster called him a dope, betsy devos called him a hippopotamus, but only because that's how she thinks you say ignoramus. [ laughter ] it's like everybody who works for trump is fred sanford and he's lamont. >> you big dummy. [ laughter ] >> seth: and yesterday trump had yet another moment that might have earned him the lamont treatment. because during a ceremony presenting a trophy to the army football team, he repeated a bizarre idea he's floated before, that we should add a sixth branch of the military focused on space. >> you will be part of the five proud branches of the united states armed forces. army, navy, marines, air force,
and the coast guard. and we're actually thinking of a sixth -- and that would be the space force. does that make sense? [ laughter ] >> seth: no. that does not make sense. [ laughter ] even trump knows what he's saying is crazy. "does that make sense? am i -- am i saying words now? [ laughter ] when will this dream where i'm president come to an end?" and yet he continued to ramble on about this idea. >> the space force, general. you probably haven't even heard that, i'm just telling you now. this is perhaps -- because we're getting very big in space. [ laughter ] both militarily and for other reasons. and we are seriously thinking of the space force. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: what do you -- sorry -- what do you mean we're getting big in space? [ laughter ] trump talks about space like
he's lying about his band. "we're getting very big in japan." [ laughter ] seriously, dude, it's the army football team, just give them their trophy. why does everyone who comes to the white house for a photo op have to suffer through an incoherent off topic trump rant? [ light laughter ] "you know this is pee tape thing, it's a total scam. i was never in moscow with hookers. and even if i was, i would never let them pee on my bed, because i'm a germophobe. everyone knows i take regular showers. not the golden ones. i like water. [ light laughter ] not urine. anyway, what do you say, scouts? let's take this picture." [ laughter and applause ] you can't blame trump for focusing on space when earth has been an such an ass ache for him recently. and no earthling has been more problematic than the special counsel in the russia investigation, robert mueller. in fact, today it was reported that yet another member of trump's legal team, white house lawyer ty cobb is leaving his position, and would be replaced by a veteran washington lawyer who represented bill clinton during his impeachment.
and that news comes just a day after it was reported that mueller raised the possibility of a presidential subpoena. wow! to quote one of the great philosophers of our time, "sweetheart, this is watergate, goodbye." [ laughter ] so -- who knows. [ cheers and applause ] who knows where all these investigations will end up. but if by some chance they do lead to trump's down fall, it's worth checking on america's plan b, vice president mike pence. now you might be tempted to think, "hey, pence doesn't tweet insults. he doesn't scream at rallies. he must be better than trump, right?" in which case i would direct you to a pence appearance in arizona last night, where he was joined by a convicted criminal and notorious racist, ex-sheriff joe arpaio. arpaio racially profiled latinos and when a judge told him to stop he refused and was convicted of contempt of court. so what did pence have say when arpaio showed up at his event last night? >> i just found out when i was walking through the door that we were also going to be joined by another favorite.
a great friend of this president. a tireless champion of strong borders and the rule of law. he spent a lifetime in law enforcement. [ cheers and applause ] sheriff joe arpaio! i'm honored to have you here. >> seth: i swear to god, this guy's reading his bible upside down. [ laughter ] mike pence is a guy who leaves a football game when players take a knee during an anthem in an exercise of their first ammendment rights, but is honored to be in the presence of a man found guilty of criminal contempt of court. in the words of our president -- >> does that make sense? [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with priyanka chopra, everybody.

[ light laughter ] >> yeah, but it's ireland. >> seth: it is. >> and i think my mom just makes excuses to come and visit me when i'm in like, really interesting places in the world. so she just like uses me to actually visit this place. >> seth: yeah, but i mean, you still benefit. you get to hang out with your mom. >> yeah. and she's super cool. >> seth: and it seems like you've chosen to hang out with your mom a lot, because she is your producing partner. >> yeah, we're business partners. that's a lot of fun. >> seth: yeah.

[ laughter ] >> seth: oh, my god, $100. >> i need to use that. >> seth: how did this happen? >> it's like, "where did i get this money from? i'm rich." >> seth: you as a producer, you produce films all over the world, but you've done 50 movies in india. in bollywood. >> give or take. in india. [ cheers and applause ] and bollywood. >> seth: in bollywood. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so i want to ask about this, because obviously i -- and i'm guilty of this as well, i
believe bollywood to be a genre of films, but that's not the case. >> no. and that's what annoys me so much. i mean, i don't even think i realized that when i was in india working in hindi films that bollywood has been reduced to a genre, when it's not. it's actually an entire industry of movies which is action, drama. it's like hollywood. but we're not even -- bollywood's not even a place. >> seth: yeah. >> hollywood's a real place. >> seth: right. >> at trader joe's, i saw bollywood flavored popcorn. [ laughter ] how do you put a flavor to an entire industry? >> seth: yeah. >> what would hollywood's flavor be? like cheeseburger? >> seth: no, it would be gluten free. [ laughter ] >> gluten free. soy latte. >> seth: yeah, exactly. >> with no soy. >> seth: exactly. latte popcorn. >> yeah. so it's like -- what is annoying is that it gets reduced to such a stereotype, which it's really not. not every bollywood movie, though music is a very important part of our movies, but they're not all break out into random synchronized dancing.
every industry has it's own stereotype. every country has it's own stereotype. >> seth: so you work with, obviously, the indian film industry so much. what is the stereotype they have about american films? >> well i think like -- aliens only land in america. >> seth: yeah, that's true. [ laughter ] that's a really good point. [ applause ] >> i want an alien in india. >> seth: yeah. you know -- >> i want e.t. >> seth: well, that's the thing. you can't say you want an alien, cause very rarely are they e.t. but one out of every 100 times, there is somebody who just wants to get out of there. >> that is true. yeah, they're usually trying to eat your brains. but i'd like to see what, like, other parts of the world would do when that happens. >> seth: right. >> you know? >> seth: i'm just worried that you will panic, and then you will break out into song. >> hey, i'm alex parrish. [ laughter ] i'll break out into a song, and kick butt. >> seth: okay, well then -- >> how about that? >> seth: i will buy a ticket for that. thank you so much for being here. >> thanks seth. >> seth: it's always such a pleasure to see you. >> it's always so much fun.

[ laughter ]
and i had to kind of -- try to figure out at what point i should drop that there is another headline. [ laughter ] it's like also, i got hired at "snl," i'm moving in three days, but this is probably harder to do. [ laughter ] is it, though? i mean, i had to work really hard. >> seth: you had to work really hard. and now, you created this show "a.p. bio." you wrote the pilot yourself, and then, you were the show runner. so you have a writing staff, but you basically are in charge of the show. how has it been running a sitcom? >> well, first off, in that question, you left out that at some point, i was like, "seth, will you come? oh, please help, help, help, help, help." >> seth: yes, i'm very lucky to be a producer on the show, but you do all the work. >> very nice. running it was actually a blast. i had the best time. we had a wonderful writer's room and nbc is just the greatest network on earth.

[ laughter ] the minute we get a season two, i'm going to gossip my head off about them. but, yeah, yeah. it was -- it couldn't have been smoother. it was so fun. >> seth: how do you feel like you were as a boss, being in charge of a writer's room and everything else that goes with having a show? >> i think i was probably very chill and nice boss for everyone. i don't -- what i need to work on is the occasional jerk boss move and um -- >> seth: oh, you think you need it in your arsenal to be a jerk boss? >> i think so probably, yeah. >> seth: yeah. >> and this isn't one of the preset things. i don't have a joke to follow this. i just am sayiing -- >> seth: you're just realizing now, you need that. >> just thinking about it, i think the one thing is, i'm like, "is everyone happy, is everyone okay?" and sometimes, i think you have to -- well, you're kind of the boss of this show. you have to lay into people sometimes, right? >> seth: yeah, no, you have to hire a guy to do that. >> oh, got it. [ laughter ]
i'll just do that then. that sounds better. >> seth: you just need a guy right, and, like, he goes in and lays into everybody, and then after he is done, you walk in and you're like -- [ laughter ] >> i know, i know that the last time i was on this show, all i did was rip on betty white. and i don't want to use a lot of my time on it. but that is exactly what she does. betty white is this -- dumb older actress and hosted snl once. and she didn't like my sketch. and she had this like 95-year-old manager who is like, "you cannot do this!" [ laughter ] and she was like, "i think he's --" and i was like, "oh, you two just met betty?" [ laughter ] i swore, i wouldn't go down this road. [ laughter ] >> seth: it's so hard to see you and not have that come up. [ laughter ] >> i'm so mad still and yet, she lives on forever. >> seth: she does. [ laughter ] >> she's going to live forever. >> seth: yeah, yeah. she is definitely going to be at
your funeral. >> that's for sure. for sure. >> seth: so, i do want to ask about -- 'cause again, you made another -- we all know how you feel about betty white. you made a more subtle observation with another friend of ours who wrote on the show. i believe tim robinson is who you had this -- >> yes. >> seth: that -- and we won't name names, but there are a lot of british people who host "snl." at least somehow, they have an opinion about their american accents. >> yes. british people all think their american accents are the best. [ light laughter ] and so, you would get a british host of "snl" and you'd give the sketch and they're like, "well, i'm being british," and by the way, my british accent is bad. but at least i'm saying it. >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> and they're like, "oh well, i'm doing my british accent and all these other sketches. maybe i'm american in this one." and we're like, "sure, yeah. whatever helps. get it on. yeah, yeah." and one particular guy was like, "should i be tennessee, or, like eastern tennessee?" and we're like, "oh, wow." "you know that nuance?
yeah, i guess let's hear eastern tennessee. that sounds fine." [ laughter ] and he's like, "okay." [ imitating american accent ] and you're like, "that's nowhere on earth." [ laughter ] that's not east or west tennessee, but -- >> seth: i'm sorry about that. because that sketch probably didn't go that well once that happened. it got immediately, like the audience was like, "what is this supposed to be? where is he supposed to -- what planet is he supposed to be from?" and also, tim should have done it probably, because it was a very tim -- >> seth: yeah, tim sketch. you have a -- you had a comedy album, "tasty radio." >> yep, yep. >> seth: you read on george saunders book on tape, "lincoln in the bardo." >> yes. >> seth: you have a book on tape idea. >> yes. i love books on tape. i find like a.d.d. or whatever, it's easier to listen to books on tape, and i've been obsessed with the idea that i wonder what it would be like if the kamasutra did books on tape. [ laughter ] and i think it would go like
this, i think it'd be like -- "okey doke, first page, i'm looking at here, looks like an indian guy and his gal doing it. [ laughter ] best i can tell, it's not quite how i do it, it's a -- hter ] it's kind of doggy style, but one leg is straight. that's all i got on that page. next page, same guy, same gal. this time they're -- it's like someone tipped them over on their side like cow tipping. ah, next page." i've got like ten pages. [ laughter ] "ah, it's like he passed out maybe a few too many brewski's and she's hopping around like a frog over him. he wakes up in the middle of that, and they decide to do it." [ laughter ] >> seth: i would buy that. i would absolutely download that. so the show, the season finale. you have such an incredible cast. >> yes. >> seth: glenn howerton and patton oswalt. paula pell -- those kids are
