tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC October 13, 2016 11:37pm-12:37am CDT
[ cheers and applause ] ?? >> announcer: from the warner theater in washington d.c., it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- kevin hart. secretary of defense, ash carter. senator from minnesota, al franken. featuring the 8g band with thaddeus dixon, corey glover, and veron reid. ?? [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. >> seth: good evening i'm seth meyers, this is "late night" from washington, d.c. how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] we cannot thank you enough for your hospitality this week. we've absolutely had the best time. but without any further ado, let's get to the news. donald trump spoke at a campaign
once again said hillary clinton should be locked up. well, donald, if it's any consolation, it looks like the election is locked up. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] five women have now come forward to accuse donald trump of inappropriately touching or kissing them as recently as 2005. said trump, "i would never do that and anyone who says i would is me on tape on a bus with billy bush." [ laughter and applause ] experts are saying that if donald trump sues the "new york times" for libel over reports that he behaved inappropriately with women, it could backfire by revealing trump's entire sexual history. said trump, "all of it?" [ laughter and applause ] during a rally in florida yesterday donald trump boasted about his plans for isis and said he will quote, "be their
for president of isis? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] oh, really? both at the same time? president obama has only 100 days left in office. said obama, "i just can't wait to get home to kenya -- believe it's october already?" [ laughter ] gotcha. [ laughter ] bob dylan was awarded the nobel [ cheers and applause ] yeah, give it up for bob dylan. said dylan, "this is the greatest honor i've ever received." or he might have said, "misses gravy's on her ivory steed." it's impossible to tell. [ laughter ] and finally a new business here if washington, d.c. opened recently allowing customers to pay $15 to take a 20-minute nap, they're calling the new service, c-span. [ laughter ]
ladies and gentlemen, we have an outstanding show for you tonight. he has got a new stand-up special, "what now" in theaters everywhere, october 14th. he's one of the funniest men in america, kevin hart is here tonight, you guys. [ cheers and applause ] he is our secretary of defense, ash carter, who was kind enough to have me at the pentagon. we're gonna have him stop by the show, too. and he is the senator from minnesota, al franken will be in so you're here on a fantastic night. before we get to all of our fabulous guests, new bombshell allegations about donald trump's predatory behavior toward women have surfaced after a week in which trump supporters repeatedly tried to make excuses for his comments bragging about sexual assault. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ?? [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: even before these latest allegations, the access
in fact he's been doing so badly that his campaign has been reduced to arguing that they should actually be losing to hillary clinton by more. as trump campaign manager kellyanne conway tried to argue tuesday on cnn. >> why is this woman at 46%? she is like the magic 46. she 46% in new nbc news wall street journal poll. she's 46% in a lot of these swing states. >> she's ahead of your candidate though. >> and try -- pardon me. well anderson, she is running as the first female president who has a sitting president and first lady much more popular than she'll ever be. >> but your candidate is below 40%. [ laughter ] >> is that a question? >> seth: no. [ laughter ] but this is a question. what are you talking about? [ laughter ] you think hillary should be further ahead because she is running as first female president? if running as the first female president was an advantage it probably would have happened before 2016.
but the trump camp continues to spin every negative as a positive. i'm pretty sure no matter how badly trump does on election day he's still going to give a victory speech. "people said an outsider couldn't win in this country. well, tell that to mississippi." [ laughter and applause ] so clearly, the trump campaign was already desperate and now in response to these latest allegations trump is lashing out like a wounded badger at the end of a three-day coke binge. [ laughter ] he's launched a series of paranoid unhinged attacks on virtually every aspect of our political system. again today he claimed that despite a thorough investigation by the fbi hillary clinton should be locked up. which may come as a surprise to his running mate, mike pence, who keeps trying to dismiss trump's comments as a joke. >> hillary clinton made a swipe at donald trump about being glad he wasn't in charge of the law. and he said well, if you would, then you'd be in jail. it was obviously -- it was
quip during the course of that debate. >> seth: yeah. and take it from the expert on quips, mike pence. [ laughter ] i don't know he just doesn't seem like a jokester to me. i get the feeling that if you went up to mike pence and said, pull my finger, he'd rip it off your hand and beat you to death with it. [ laughter and applause ] and in addition to trying to discredit our democratic institution trump has also been running new ads stoking fears about terrorism with ominous text, quote, "donald trump will protect you. he is the only one who can." [ light laughter ] "i can protect you. i'm the only one who can," sounds like a line from a lifetime movie about a lunatic stalking his ex-wife. [ laughter ] and here's that poster. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] now all of this -- all of this has republicans scrambling to decide where they stand on trump. house speaker paul ryan recently
trump and senator john mccain withdraw his endorsement of trump completely. and on tuesday night trump lashed out at both of them. >> he was begging for my endorsement. >> i know -- >> people are calling. his friends are calling. and then -- >> be the better man. >> the first sign of a little bit of difficulty and he un-endorses. i wouldn't want to be in a fox hole with a lot of these people. >> seth: well guess what? no one would want to be in a fox hole with you either. especially because it would be the easiest fox hole for the enemy to find. [ laughter a and then there are those courageous republicans who endorsed trump, then unendorsed him when they saw the access hollywood tape, and then re-endorsed him again just a few days later. like senators john thune and deb fischer. but i mean, that's got to be the last time they'll flip-flop, right? surely there are no more bomb shell revelations about trump that will come to light right after they change their minds. >> damning new accusations in donald trump's presidential campaign is reeling. several women coming forward.
physical advances on them. >> this headline from the new york times, the latest in a flurry of accusations from women about donald trump. >> one told the "new york times" that trump groped and kissed her on an airplane back in the '80s. another says that he kissed her when they were waiting for an elevator together. >> also breaking overnight, a former "people" magazine reporter has now accused donald trump of assaulting her in 2005. >> seth: now trump denied the allegations calling them ludicrous at a rally today. but here is the problem for trump. there is very good reason to be why? because an irrefutable inside source told us so, donald trump. >> you know i'm automatically attracted to beautiful. i just start kissing them. it's like a magnet. it just is. and when you're a star, they let you do it. you can you do anything. >> seth: donald trump is his own deep throat. [ laughter ] he's creep throat. [ cheers and applause ] so trump literally explained in
assault these women are now describing which may explain why trump supporters have gone to absurd lengths this week to try to excuse or dismiss the comments on that tape. like ben carson who dismissed the comments as mere bragging, and tried to argue to a stunned cnn anchor that the real problem was that she hadn't heard more of that kind of talk. >> as i was growing up people were always trying to talk about their sexual conquests and trying to make themselves appear, you know, like the, don, you know, casanova. i'm surprised you haven't heard that, i really am. >> i haven't heard it and i know a lot of people who have not heard it. and i think they were shocked. >> maybe that's the problem. maybe that's the problem. [ laughter ] >> the problem is that i haven't -- [ laughter ] >> maybe that's the problem.
that is -- [ cheers ] that is very clearly the face of someone thinking, "are you a brain surgeon or a brain donor?" [ laughter ] one thing's for sure, you're no don casanova. but it gets crazier, because then there was trump surrogate and former new york lieutenant governor betsy mccaughey who compared trump's comments on the bus to beyonce lyrics. >> hillary clinton expresses that she finds the language on that bus horrific. but in fact she likes language like this, quote, "i came to slay bitch, when he 'f' me good i take his ass to red lobster." [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: oof. oof! [ laughter ] betsy mccaughey got thousand island dressing in her bag swag. [ laughter and applause ] and i mean this sincerely. it should be illegal for someone to do that to a beyonce song. [ laughter and applause ] and then, then there was former
mike huckabee, who explained what's really motivating trump supporters. they will excuse any of trump's horrific behavior and rationalize it to themselves by saying, "at least he's not hillary." huckabee made that argument with a movie analogy that didn't quite add up. >> like captain quint in the original movie "jaws." he's vulgar. he's salty. he's the guy who's gonna save your butt and save your family. and so at the end of the day when he kills the shark you're happy about it. now, hillary is the shark. and so the choice is, do you vote for captain quint who's gonna save your family or do you vote for the shark? >> seth: he's right, trump is quint and hillary is the shark. wait, how did that movie end again? [ screaming ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: actually though, actually there is one way trump is like the shark. he sucks in air like he's about
[ sniffing ] [ laughter ] >> seth: in the end, this week of revelations about trump's predatory behavior has pulled the curtain back on the moral cowardice of many in the republican party. trump supporters and his enablers in the gop will go to virtually any lengths to dismiss or excuse his worst behavior. and now in the wake of these latest allegations trump supporters and even some of the media have tried to focus not on the substance of the allegations but on the timing. campaign thus far, other than, "we're gonna sue this is all a lie," is, "why now? why did they wait so long to come forward?" >> it happens to appear 26 days before our very important election. isn't a that amazing? >> i think it's fair to question why is this coming out now? it does sort of raise questions about the timing. >> i'm just very skeptical of these allegations. and i'll tell you why. i mean look he's a well known billionaire. if he had groped so many women
don't you think that they would have sued him instantaneously? that didn't happen. >> seth: when people ask why women wait to report sexual assault, that's why. because instead of believing them you question their motives. stop pretending there is an optimal time -- [ cheers and applause ] stop pretending there is an optimal time for women to go public with these kind of allegations. it's not like if you do it within the first 24 hours you get a parade and itunes gift card. these new bombshells could very well bury trump for good. which means at the very least we probably already know what the third debate between trump and hillary will look like. [ screaming ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ?? [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: we'll be right back with more from washington, d.c., everybody. [ cheers and applause ]
only a few... truly move us. ? electrifying the road forward for over a decade with over one million on the road, lexus hybrids are always charged and always ready. ? you're acting so funny, what's wrong, billy? my doctor says i have skittles pox. are they contagious? i don't think so. contract the rainbow! taste the rainbow! we're going to prove just how wet and sticky your current gel antiperspirant is. now, we're going to show you how degree dry spray is different. degree dry spray.

[ laughter ] i'm not here for product placement. i just want to give you some cool headphones. >> seth: well, thank you, you're so kind. you're so generous. >> it's just a smart headphone that's not out. it's something i invested in and i have ownership in and you should have. [ laughter ] >> seth: that's good, i'm so glad. because you need something to go right for you because your career has been -- [ laughter ] is in the dumps so i'm glad you're branching out to
guy. i can't believe you found time for us, thank you so much. >> i -- i don't have time. >> seth: okay, good. >> i shouldn't be here. >> seth: season 5 of "real husbands of hollywood," congratulations. >> yes, yes, yes, just started. thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: and you also new show on comedy central, "hart of the city." >> "hart of the city," i'm producing a show giving young comedians a chance. the thing about kevin hart, third person, the thing about me -- [ laughter ] is i love to create opportunities for others. i'm a good guy, man. [ laughter ] >> seth: uh-huh, yeah. >> that's what-- >> -- this stuff is about i love to love. i love to live. and i love to laugh. live, love, laugh. that's what i'm about. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i -- this is your fourth stand-up special, yeah? >> this is -- this is number five. >> seth: number five. >> number five! >> seth: it is called "what now." why? >> let me tell you why, seth. you got a second? >> seth: i do. [ laughter ] >> here eat thing, okay. everything goes together. my first special was called "grown little man" because that's how i felt about myself.
>> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> my special after that was called "seriously funny." you know why i called it that? because i felt it was time to tell people, serious, guys, i'm funny, this isn't a joke, i'm serious. [ laughter ] after that, my next special was called, "laugh at my pain." i wanted people to realize that there was a deeper version of kevin that hasn't been talked about so i want to you laugh at my pain. [ laughter ] after that, i did another special about "let me explain." that's when weird stuff happened, like a dui. got a divorce. i felt people were judging me so i said, d let me explain." [ laughter ] now, after that, after that, i made history. i performed at madison square garden when i did "let me explain." i thought that was it. i got on stage and as soon as i thought i made history, the first question that came to me was, "what now?" >> seth: sure. >> nobody was satisfied with what happened, they were like "what're you going to do now? what now? what now?" and i thought about it and i said that's a question that should always come up and that you should always have an answer for, hence the title, "what now?" [ laughter ] this is seen genius, guys, if you think about it.
>> it's genius! [ applause ] >> seth: and, you mentioned madison square garden which is an incredible venue to perform comedy in because it's so big but then for this show, you performed at "lincoln financial field" in philadelphia, 53,000 seats. >> 53,000 people, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: the first time -- is it the first time anyone's even attempted to do a comedy show like that in a football stadium? >> it is the first time a comedian has ever performed in a football stadium and sold it out. uh -- we went and the idea came up and people thought i was crazy becaus it's too big." and i love a challenge. i love to break new ground. i love to raise the bar for myself. so i went and did it. we sold it out in two weeks. we did the show. i said, "you know what i'm going to do? i'm going to tell basically an hour of material but i'm going to do it through my visual pov." so when i fold jokes, my background basically it integrated into what i was talking about. >> seth: yeah. so you talked about a drive way you see a drive way. >> you see the drive way. >> seth: it is really cool.
the audience was engaged, i had big monitors up on each side of the stage and you know, it killed. here's the thing about the show, seth. [ laughter ] the beauty of what i did is i made history but i did it in my city. i wanted to bring attention to philadelphia. >> seth: right. >> and now philadelphia has so much to stand on including a guy who loves his city because his city made him who he is today. in return, i show my city i love them and i say, let's make more history. that's why my movie is coming out in theaters. why? because i own it, i put it out myself. because i believe in me. when you believe in you, you do what people don't expect to you do. the moral of the story is tie your shoes, when i get to -- [ laughter ] >> seth: well, all right, you mentioned shoes. and for all your accomplishments you did something that i've never been more jealous of. you appeared on a magazine that that's my dream magazine. you were on the cover of "runners world." >> oh, yeah, yeah. >> seth: and you're an actual runner. >> yes i am. >> seth: you're a real deal runner. >> i'm a real deal runner.
good shape, and yet this is the greatest you -- because it's their anniversary, it's their 50th anniversary. so you took three covers and you started with a 70s cover. >> yeah. that's the one i went. >> seth: and there you go, fantastic. >> yep. [ laughter ] and i thought, nothing beats 70s but then your 80s is pretty -- >> there you go. you gotta make sure you show -- [ laughter ] >> seth: then we have the official one right there. >> right there. >> seth: which is really good. congratulations. [ cheers and applause ] >> you know i just wanted to -- thank you, thank you, and major thank you to "runner's world." [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i want to ask this because you know especially speaking of going back to your roots in philadelphia and you know, this is obviously a much bigger theater than we're used to, you played 53,000 in lincoln financial, what were some of the worst rooms you early in your career? >> the worst rooms? i performed in a male strip club. [ laughter ] that was tough. >> seth: between acts or? >> i guess like the halftime, of dicks? i don't know what it was, man. [ laughter ] you know, i came in and i was
[ laughter ] you know, i came here to tell jokes. but it was like a bunch of women, it was -- at the time like 50 women there and they stopped the show and they were like, "all right, ladies, let's get ready for comedy." and they bring me out first and it wasn't even like an intro, they were like, "all right, let's get ready for comedy, lil' kev the bastard." that was my name at the time. [ laughter ] and it wasn't even a stage, like i was standing in the middle of the floor like i was on the same level as the crowd, which isn't safe. [ laughter ] >> seth: no, no. >> you should never be in arm's out of nowhere this guy stands up and throws a buffalo wing at me, true story. i don't know what pissed me off more, it was either the fact that he threw it or that he connected because he was far back there and it hit me in the cheek and i was like, "who is that accurate with a buffalo wing?" [ laughter ] a buffalo wing should take all different types of different directions, he was able to throw a straight buffalo wing, hit me in the cheek, little bit of the
and i tried to stand up for myself. i was like, "who threw it?" he was like, "i did." and i was like, he's serious about his [ bleep ] feeling right now so i need to just get up out of here. [ laughter ] >> seth: thank you so much for being here. >> thank you, man. >> seth: such a fan. [ cheers and applause ] always good to see you. kevin hart, everybody!

[ laughter ] >> seth: as you were. [ applause ] [ laughter ] ??
[ laughter ] >> seth: as you were. [ laughter ] okay, so i know everyone's respective branch of the military is their favorite but on the count of three i want everyone to tell me their least favorite. 1, 2, 3. >> all: coast guard. [ laughter and applause ] >> sir, definitely coast guard. >> seth: fair, fair. [ phone rings ] >> sir, secretary carter will see you now. s doing this. >> seth, thanks for coming to the pentagon. >> seth: my pleasure. >> want to see my office? >> seth: yeah. >> come on in. this table right here is from the civil war. every morning i sit with the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff we go through thing for the day. this desk, that's my desk right there. it belonged to general jack pershing of world war i fame. and you want to see something really cool? >> seth: yeah. so this is a direct line to president obama. >> seth: no way. >> yeah. want to prank him?
>> seth: hey, president obama, it's seth and i'm here with ash and we're wondering if you want to annex switzerland? so, anyway, call us if you think that's a good idea. if you don't call we're going to probably just go ahead with it? okay, bye. [ laughter ] [ russian accent ] president barack obama this is vladimir putin. we have your secretary ash carter and we will not be giving him back. >> you'll never hold me. >> seth: no, he's getting away! please, don't let him jump on my horse! oh, no this is very bad! [ laughter ] i have a theory that at the pentagon, anything is dramatic if you deliver it in a file. no matter what that thing is. let's try. ?? >> seth: mr. secretary, we're ordering lunch and we need to you pick a menu. [ laughter ] ?? >> gyro's from pita pocket. >> seth: are you sure? >> never been more sure about anything. ??
>> seth: can you pass the tzatziki sauce. >> huh? >> seth: can you pass the tzatziki sauce? >> yeah. [ laughter ] the big room. it's where we meet with foreign leaders. >> seth: do you want to pretend i'm a north korean leader? >> all right. mr. ambassador, i want you to stop your provocations and if you do you'll become a valued member of the international community. >> seth: no. [ laughter ] can i try to guess the nuclear codes? >> sure. >> seth: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. >> no. -- we're going to need to change the nuclear codes. [ laughter and applause ] so this is the hall where we
right back to the very beginning. >> seth: wow. >> up here, this guy is louis johnson. he was secretary of defense for a while after world war ii. >> seth: all right. >> next, george marshall. general, hero of world war ii. later as civilian he became secretary of defense. >> seth: great. >> great man. up here, my portrait. >> seth: oh, great. >> come on. take a look. >> seth: you posed for that one? >> sure. [ laughter ] >> seth: all right. >> hey look, i got a few things to do. i'll see you later. >> seth: do you mind if i just sort of look around? >> no, no, no, take a look around. >> seth: okay, great. ?? [ laughter ] >> seth: one of the great things about the pentagon are all of the interesting items they have on display. for example, this right here is saddam hussein's gold plated ak-47. true story, this was discovered
not the only artifact that you would find in the pentagon. for example right here, incredible to actually see it in person, hitler's mustache discovered by private bill mulvaney. also, interesting fact. you know how many centimeters long, hitler's mustache is? "nein." [ laughter ] so vladimir putin, often in the news, often seen without a shirt, why? it's right here at the pentagon. [ laughter ] and it's a henley. military history was of course the raid on osama bin laden's compound in abbottabad and one of the most surprising things they found upon breaching the compound walls was osama bin laden's pog collection. [ laughter ] it turns out that osama bin laden had one of the world's most comprehensive pog collections known to man. according to one of his wives, osama bin laden's last words upon hearing seal team 6 breach the compound were "oh, man. i hope they're not here for my
there are 284 bathrooms in the pentagon. we're going to do our best to see them all. ?? ?? ?? [ flushing ] [ laughter ] ?? [ laughter ] >> hey, how did it go? >> seth: great. so many bathrooms. >> awesome. hey, want to see something nobody's ever seen before? >> seth: yeah. >> the sixth side of the pentagon. want to? >> seth: yeah. >> come on. >> seth: whoa!
wow. so tell me, and be honest, what's your least favorite country? >> least favorite country, well, i guess i'd have to say -- >> secretary carter, the president would like to see you. >> tell him i'm busy with pentagon stuff. [ laughter ] >> seth: yea [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: we're here with the secretary of defense, ash carter, everybody. and i had such a wonderful time with you. such a wonderful time with your staff. but i wanted you to come out here because, you know, we were so excited that you allowed us to come visit you. my question is, why did you say yes? [ laughter ]
>> seth: okay. >> we got 18-24, very important watchers of yours and we have, there's some of them in the audience. >> seth: we have some of the many service men and women here with us tonight. >> fighting for us. [ cheers and applause ] so look at them. that is the finest fighting force the world has ever known. and in addition to using it -- clap for them. [ cheers and applause ] they're used in the wisest possible way. today, i got to make sure that tomorrow's force is fine as this one. and i can't take that for granted. what makes our military great is people. and so i want to -- i'm hoping somebody out there will watch and will realize that, you know, military service involves all of the things that people say. sacrifice, sometimes danger and all that.
satisfaction also with being part of something bigger than yourself, with, look at this -- this is culture, it's comedy, it's all of the wonders of life. people get to wake up in the morning, take their kids to school, live their lives, dream their dreams. and safety makes that possible. so that's our job. and if you get to be part of that, that's tremendously satisfying.
