president trump yesterday released a video thanking first responders of hurricane orence,. >> this is a tough hurricane. one of the wettest we've ever seen from the standpoint of water. [ laughter ] >> seth: oh, my god, i mean -- [ light laughter ] talking about the weather is what people do when they know they're bad at talking and don't want to embarrass themselves. and you still screwed it up. [ laughter ] so how about this weather we're ham sandwich? damn it. [ light laughter ] while touring hurricane damage in north carolina today, president trump reportedly congratulated a resident on having a stranger's boat wash up in his yard. saying, "at least you got a nice boat out of the deal." [ audience groans ] dude, you don't get to just keep things that wash up on shore. [ laughter ] even though, i'm assuming that's probably how you got steve bannon. [ laughter ]

[ cheers and applause ] and we will have music from the fantastic lady antebellum tonight. so you're here on a wonderful evening. [ cheers and applause ] before we get to that, republicans are making clear that they have no interest in hearing the truth about supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ]
12:43 am
>> seth: as the president faced a growing crisis over the sexual assault allegations against his supreme court nominee, he flew to north carolina to survey damage from hurricane florence. and as usual, he was super weird about it. at one point, according to reporters, trump crossed the street to a small brick house where he stopped to greet an older man in a t-shirt. behind the house, a large yacht had washed ashore, and was shipwrecked against the wooden deck. trump gazed at the yacht, saying "is this your boat?" the owner said no. trump turned and replied with a smile, "at least you got a nice boat out of the deal." [ light laughter ] oh my god, i swear trump could see a guy jump off a building, and think, "oh cool, free shoes." [ laughter ] and in case you think trump was just kidding, he later told reporters, "i think it's incredible what we're seeing. this boat just came here. they don't know whose boat that is. [ laughter ] what's the law? maybe it becomes theirs. [ laughter ] ah yes, who could forget the famous supreme court case of
12:44 am
finders v. keepers. this is the guy. [ applause ] that right there is the guy who gets to pick our next supreme court justice, a man who thinks that legally speaking, if a boat shows up on your lawn, you get to keep it. [ laughter ] and yet, it's very much the case that republicans are hoping trump will be able to reshape the supreme court for a generation by rushing to get his nominee brett kavanaugh confirmed, despite the credible sexual assault allegations against him. republicans have been engaged in a 40 year project to install a conservative majority on the court, and kavanaugh's nomination was supposed to be the crowning achievement in that project. and trump was very proud of his choice. although, he mainly seemed concerned with whether kavanaugh looked the part. >> hopefully everything goes very well with judge kavanaugh. he's central casting.supre cour judge. justice kavanaugh is doing great. looks like -- i don't know, very
12:45 am
tough. central casting. >> seth: i don't know. if he really came from central casting, they wouldn't make him a supreme court justice, they'd make him the manager on "superstore." [ laughter ] and if you think kavanaugh would never lie, here he is in his first remarks as a supreme court nominee in order to shamelessly suck up to trump. >> mr. president, thank you. throughout this process i've witnessed firsthand your appreciation for the vital role of the american judiciary. no president has ever consulted more widely, or talked with more people for from more backgrounds to seek input about a supreme court nomination. >> seth: there's absolutely no way that is true. [ laughter ] he might as well have said no president has ever looked better in a white polo. [ laughter ] [ applause ]
12:46 am
but kavanaugh, kavanaugh was willing to lie to please his boss because he's been a loyal partisan republican for most of his career. someone conservatives know they'll be able to depend on to implement their agenda. trump himself even claimed he'd heard kavanaugh's name mentioned as a possible supreme court justice for years. >> he's an outstanding intellect. he's an outstanding judge. he was born for the position. i heard as long as ten years ago, people were saying he should be a supreme court judge. i didn't know him at the time, but i was hearing from a lot of people, friends of mine from washington and other places saying that brett kavanaugh should be a supreme court judge someday. >> seth: no. [ laughter ] you did not hear people saying brett kavanaugh should be a supreme court justice ten years ago. ten years ago you were yelling at gary busey for stealing meat loaf's art supplies. [ laughter and applause ] kavanaugh's nomination was the culmination of a decade's long ideally project to reshape the
12:47 am
court. and republicans are making it clear that they want to see that project through, even if it means ignoring a credible allegation of sexual assault. trump was asked about the allegations against kavanaugh made by dr. christine blasey ford. trump said he wanted the process to play out while making clear he was firmly behind kavanaugh. >> we are looking to get this done as quickly as possible. he is a truly outstanding person, as you know. he's an incredible man. he's an incredible intellect. he will make an incredible supreme court justice, but we feel that we want to go through a process. we want to hear both sides. he can handle himself better than anybody. he's a very outstanding man. thank you. thank you. >> so you still support him. he knows you support him though. >> oh, i'm totally supportive, yes. i'm very suppoe. >> seth: you can't say you want a fair and open process, but also that you're supportive of one side. he's like a ref at the super bowl saying let's have a good, clean game so we can get that handsome tom brady another trophy. [ laughter ] the white house is trying to have it both ways. they're trying to insulate trump
12:48 am
from the political fallout if kavanaugh's nomination blows up, while also standing firmly behind their supreme court nominee. in fact on monday, kavanaugh was at the white house for nine hours of meetings. but white house staff made sure to keep trump away from him. >> inside the white house they were hunkered down closely monitoring everything. but keeping the judge away from meeting with president trump who was nearby in the oval office meeting with officials as well. >> why? >> they don't meet chris, based on my reporting, because they want to protect the president. >> seth: so kavanaugh was in the building all day, and they had to keep trump away from him. that means that for nine hours it was someone's job inside the white house to keep trump distracted. [ light laughter ] "okay, guys, it's going to be a d cheeseburger on a string." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] "damn you cheeseburger. the cheeseburger won't stand still." [ applause ] the republicans' gambit here is to make it seem like they want a fair, and open process. but in reality they want it to look like a he said, she said so
12:49 am
they can just ignore it, and move on. they won't even interview witnesses, or let the fbi investigate. they made it clear that they either don't believe ford's story, or don't care. in fact, gop senators are already insisting that ford must have gotten her story wrong. or that she might be doing this for political purposes. >> if ms. ford really did not want to come forward, never intended to come forward, never planned to come forward, why did she pay for a polygraph in august? and why did she hire a lawyer in august if she never intended to do what she's doing? >> senator cornyn this morning saying there are gaps in her story, appear to be gaps in her story. >> do you think that this in any way is going to derail his nomination? >> no. he's a straight-shooting honest guy. i think when people listen to him, they'll know -- they'll know that he's all right. >> and do you think that any of these claims are legitimate. >> no, i don't. i think -- i think this woman, whoever she is, is mixed up. >> seth: i love these old ass senators claiming other people are mixed up.
12:50 am
[ light laughter ] just to give you some perspective, here's that same senator, orrin hatch, asking mark zuckerberg a question about facebook at a hearing earlier this year. >> how do you sustain a business model in which users don't pay for your service? [ light laughter ] >> senator, we run ads. >> i see. [ laughter ] >> seth: "okay, okay, but how do you get all the faces inside the book? [ laughter ] where do you print this book? can i get the book at barnes and noble. how many pages is the book? [ light laughter ] how much does the book cost? is the book available on kindle, and a follow-up question, what's a kindle?" [ laughter ] republicans are making it as clear as possible they don't actually have an interest in hearing the truth of what happened. they're rushing to get a man accused of sexual assault on the supreme court because it's the culmination of a 40-year project to solidify their conservative majority for a generation.

[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: long brand. can we have a little? >> please. >> seth: did you name it? did you come up with the name, long branch? >> long branch is a name i came up with. it's a moniker for, you know, friends outside of our immediate blood family that we sort of take in and become family. it's an extension of a hand, the extension of a branch. the russell family, wild turkey, took me in that way. and that's where the name comes from. >> seth: do you put ice or do you drink it straight up? how should we drink it? >> it's great either way. >> seth: okay. >> let's do a couple rocks since it's our first one of the night. >> seth: okay, perfect. i like your style. i like your style and thank you so much for sharing it with me.
12:57 am
>> my pleasure. eddie russell and i, master distiller at wild turkey, worked on this for two years. and i had the very hard job of tasting. he'd sent me like, four testers a week -- on friday night [ light laughter ] >> seth: so that was basically what you would do. >> i would do my homework around midnight. [ laughter ] really laborious. >> seth: here you go. cheers. i poured yours very light, i apologize. i don't know why i did that. >> we got a bottle.

[ laughter ] >> and he'd be like, "what?" but then he started to get it. >> seth: you were very clearly born for this. [ laughter ] >> "what do you mean?" "a little less treble, a little more bass." and all of a sudden he was like, "oh, i think i'm understanding mcconaughey's lingo." >> seth: well, it's paid off. congratulations. >> thank you. >> seth: this film is very exciting. on arue story. 's ry. detroit. >> early '80s, southeast e -- [ laughter ] it's an after school special. it is a family story. >> seth: but tell us about who white boy rick is?
12:59 am
>> so, rick wershe jr., aka white boy rick, the young boy who plays my son -- early '80s, southeast detroit. starts dealing on the streets. the fbi comes to him. says, "we want you to be an informant." he comes an informant for the fbi. now, the state of michigan at that time passed the 650 grams law which means if you were caught with more than 650 grams of any kind of drug, you went to life in prison. rick wershe jr., 17 years old on the street, gets busted with more than 650. went away for life in prison. just got his first parole after 27 years about five months ago. the fbi would neither confirm nor deny that he was an informant.w thbase of it -- yes, the heart line is about holding the family together. and i play a father who's trying to hold the family together, but not doing a great job of it. >> seth: the actor you got to play white boy rick, this is his first film. >> yes. >> seth: and a pretty unique story as far as how you guys went out and found him. >> richie merritt is this young man from baltimore.
1:00 am
for two years the director looked for the right person to play this role. and they found him in the principle's office in a baltimore high school. they pitched -- hey, they're going around all these schools. and they pitched the part to the princil. that's the little -- you ought to talk to right here. [ laughter ] >> seth: your mom -- i know she's a big fan of your work. she still comes on set? still visits you? >> still comes to set. she still -- her dream was to be on "golden girls." >> seth: oh wow. [ light laughter ] >> somehow. >> seth: that's a very noble dream. [ light laughter ] >> hey, with a capital "n." and so she -- i guess when she got around 70, she decided, "you know what, maybe i'm not as limber as i need to be after are "golden girls" anymore. i'm gonna start -- when i get to matthew's sets, i'm going to make sure tha find -- she always comes and goes, "who's the one with the money? who's the one that can get things done?" and i'm like, "that guy over there or that woman over there." [ laughter ] and she'll go corner them. and for about 12 years she had a pitch to so said money-man
1:01 am
producer. she had this great idea. listen to this, brilliant. [ light laughter ] we need to remake "the "i'll play the anne bancroft role. matthew will be the dustin hoffman role." [ laughter ] so what's the first reaction? it's like, "but don't you --" and mom says, "oh, it's not that big of a deal. i've seen it before." [ laughter ] >> seth: still unmade. it's one of the unmade classics. >> unmade. and i mean, there was a couple times people were like, "that could make -- that could make some money." [ laughter ] so she stopped doing that at 82. [ light laughter ] [ audience ohs ] she's now 86, she hasn't pitched to any of the producers. i don't know what she has on her mind now. >> seth: yeah. well, maybe this "golden girls" thing will come back around. you never know. you're -- i wanna know if this is a true story. your father had a cockatiel? >> yeah. >> seth: am i saying that right? >> yeah, cockatiel. >> seth: and there was a story about a very harrowing evening with the cockatiel. >> yeah. this was at summer where i was living with my dad. mom was not around. i thought she was on an extended vacation in florida. now i understand they were in
1:02 am
the middle of their second divorce. >> seth: your parents got divorced twice. >> divorced twice, married three times. >> seth: oh wow. [ light laughter ] >> so that was just a long summer where i thought mom was on vacation. so i'm living with my dad. and we had this cockatiel. and i would let it fly freely. well, he came home from work one day and then i came in. so he was looking for his cockatiel. where is it? where is it? where is it? it's not in the cage. it's not anywhere to be found. go in the bathroom and it was circling in the bottom of the toilet. not moving. done. >> seth: how does that even happen? >> i guess it flew in and got under the rim. >> seth: okay, yeah. >> couldn't see, couldn't get out, over and over and over. laid in the water, got soaking wet. i guess. >> seth: yeah. >> you know? being a cockatiel detective expert.
