[ cheers and applause ] in that case let's get to the news. a controversial french politician marine le pen who's been compared to president trump has advanced to the final round of her country's presidential election. oh, interesting, we have a female trump running our country too.
in a new interview, president trump says he's mostly there on fulfilling the promises of his first 100 days. said trump "look, at this point i've already accomplished 95 days. [ light laughter ] that's almost 80%." [ light laughter ] this week is national volunteer week, said president trump. so anybody want to be president?

[ cheers and applause ] this is very exciting. we have a comedy legend with us tonight. she's -- one of the stars of nbc's great news, andrea martin is in the building. [ cheers and applause ] can't wait to talk to her. and this is very exciting for us. he is the host of his own late night show in germany -- neo magizin royale. that's the name of the show and now i'm going to say his name and i'm gonna nail it. jan bohmermann is here tonight and -- [ cheers and applause ] very excited to have our first german talk show host.
but before we get to all that, president trump has been scrambling for literally any kind of positive achievement as he nears the end of his first 100 days in office. meanwhile, he and congress are facing down an imminent deadline to avoid a government shutdown. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: trump is nearing the 100 day milestone with record low approval ratings and a white house in constant chaos which means today was the perfect day for a jovial, well rested former president obama to show up in chicago for his first public appearance after leaving office and say this. >> so what's been going on while i've been gone? [ laughter ] >> seth: ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. everything! [ light laughter ] everything has been going on. of course after that comment obama threw on some shades, kite surfed out of the auditorium and yelled, "somebody get me a mai
[ light laughter ] but obama's first post-election public appearance was especially well timed because saturday will mark the 100th day of trump's presidency. which is traditionally when presidents get their first big report card on their performance so far. and this will shock you. most people think he's not doing great. >> we have our brand new nbc news wall street journal poll to tell us just how americans think the president is doing as we approach day 100. in short, not well. >> the worst approval ratings around the 100 day mark for any president in modern times. he laid out a very detailed 100 day contract he called it. obamacare, tax reform, border wall funding, infrastructure spending, new trade tariffs, labeling china a currency manipulator, ending the common core education standards. 100 days in or one week from 100 days anyway, incomplete at best. none of this, none of this has been done. >> seth: none of this has been done. if this were a movie, it would be called 100 days and confused. now, the polls did have one bit of good news for trump which if a neec
trump would win over clinton 43% to 40%. and of course trump could not help but brag about those numbers. tweeting yesterday new polls out today are very good. considering that much of the media is fake and almost always negative would still beat hillary in popular votes. still? does he think he won the popular vote the first time? [ light laughter ] because i got news for you, buddy. you can't still do something you've never done before. that's like me saying "it's been 100 days, but rihanna would still go out with me. [ laughter and applause ] thank you for sticking with me. nonetheless, the 100 day report card is on the way. and like every terrible student trump is trying to turn an 'f' into an 'a' tweeting last week, "no matter how much i accomplish with the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, and it has been a lot, including supreme court, media will kill." yeah, the 100 day report card is an arbitrary, meaningless political milestone that most people care about.
donald trump. >> i propose a contract with the american voter. it's a set of promises for what i'll do in my first 100 days. what follows is my 100 day action plan to make america great again. just think about what we can accomplish in the first 100 days of a trump administration. >> seth: "and then after you thought about it, tell me what you came up with because i've got nothing." [ light laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] so as the 100 day milestone nears, trump has failed to deliver on almost everyone of his legislative promises. now there are many reasons for this including trumps ignorance about the basic political realities of governing. in fact trump is so ignorant, he's ignorant of his own ignorance. for example, he apparently just learned that there were different factions on the republican party and talked about as if it was a brilliant insight telling the ap in an interview, "the republican party
has various groups, all great people. they're great people. but some are moderate, some are very conservative, and i think it's fine." [ laughter ] trump is like an annoying 8-year-old kid that just got home from school. "did you know fish can breathe underwater by using their gills?" "yes timmy, i did know that. everybody knows that now go suck-on your juice box." in fact, trump even seems to have trouble remembering the names of congressional leaders as we discover last week when he kept referring to house speaker paul ryan as ron before catching himself and trying to save it. >> my thanks goes to speaker ryan who's represented the city for nearly two decades in congress. and you know where he is? he's with nato, and -- so he has a good excuse i said, "ron, make sure these countries start paying their bills a little bit more. you know, they're way, way behind ron -- i'm gonna talk to you about that ron. but, paul, you're over with
bills. >> seth: "i said ron, mean i'm talking to you ron. names not ron? i meant don. i was talking to myself. don, you've got to get them to pay their bills. good idea, don. thank you, don." [ light laughter ] so with less than a week -- less than a week until the 100 day deadline, to trump himself champion, the president has failed to deliver on nearly every one of his major legislative promises. how could things get any worse? >> shutdown showdown. >> the white house is racing to avoid marking the president's first 100 days in office with a government shutdown. >> if congress doesn't send president trump a the government funding bill midnight on friday the government will run out of money and a shutdown would begin. >> a sticking point as you may know is money for the wall along our border with mexico. >> he could be the first president in history to face a government shutdown in his first 100 days. >> seth: okay, but are we sure the government wasn't shutdown already? because it was reported recently that president trump as appointed few than three dozen
of the top 1000 officials he needs to run the federal government. under trump our federal government is staffed as well as duane reade on a sunday morning. [ light laughter ] "hello? hello, i need my heart pills. duane? reade?" so the white house is requesting money for the border wall and the bill that funds the government. but the crucial question is will the president veto any bill that does not include money for the wall? the government staying open hangs on this question. so when the ap asked trump that question point-blank, this is what he said and this is his full unedited answer. "i don't know yet. people want the border wall. my base definitely wants the border wall. my base really wants it. you've been to many of the rallies. okay? the think they want more than anything is the wall. my base, which is a big base, i think my base is 45%. lhlh you know, it's funny, the democrats have a big advantage in the electoral college, big,
big, big advantage. i've always said the popular vote would be a lot easier than the electoral college. the electoral college, but it's a whole different campaign, unintelligible." as opposed to everything up to that point which had been super [ bleep ] telligble. [ laughter and applause ] let's get back to his answer about the wall. "the electoral college is very difficult for a republican to win. and i will tell you, the people want to see it. they want to see the wall." i'll tell you one thing, that answer would have definitely made a much tougher chant at trump rallies. "who's going to pay for the wall?" "we don't know yet. people want the border wall. your base definitely wants to border wall. you're base really wants it. we've been to many of the rallies. unintelligible." [ applause ] now, trump's answer on the wall might be confusing to you for many reasons including the fact as you may recall, trump
will pay for the wall. and on sunday he took to twitter to settle the discrepancy with his signature bravado declaring unequivocally that without any hesitation that eventually, but at a later date so he can get started early, mexico will be paying in some form for the badly needed border wall. trump's tweets are starting to sound like the fine print on a contest to win a free cruise. [ light laughter ] cruise will be awarded eventually but at a later date in some form. the cruise will not necessarily be on a boat but may in fact be on a raft or a piece of driftwood. while the cruise is free, each passenger must pay a $10,000 floating fee. [ cheers and applause ] trump was also asked how much the wall would cost? but again this is his real answer. "i think $10 billion or less. and if i do a super, duper higher better, better security, everything else, maybe it goes a little bit more." man even the biggest sucker at the used car lot knows to walk away when the salesman says super-duper. [ light laughter ] "and i'lll
i'm gonna throw any undercoating for free. i just have to talk to my manager, super-duper." now publicly republicans and the trump administration have downplayed the risks of a government shutdown over border wall funding. but privately they seem excited. one unnamed top white house official told the new yorker, "next week it's going to have quite high drama. it's gonna be action packed. trust me, it's gonna be the battle of the titans." and the great irony here is that the call for government shutdown will come on, guess what, the 100th day. if you pitch this in a studio they would say, "get out here, it's too ridiculous. this is gonna be a big one." we've all been saying, "get outta here it's too ridiculous," for two years. yet, here he is. get out of here! so trump -- [ cheers and applause ] so trump obviously has very few concrete achievements to celebrate his first 100 days. which of course has left trump brag about the thing he loves to brag about the most, ratings. in fact trump is so enamored by ratings he's even basing major personnel decisions on them. "the whi
yesterday that when the prospect of firing sean spicer came up in a recent meeting, trump replied, "i'm not firing sean spicer. the guy gets great ratings. everyone tunes in." yeah, everyone gets great ratings. everyone tunes in. yeah, everyone tunes in to watch sean spicer for the same reason this video has 31 million views. [ grunting ] [ audience oohs ] >> seth: incidentally trump just made that guy secretary of pools. [ light laughter ] so trump is facing a 100 day milestone with virtually no successes to brag about which may be why when asked by reporters last week about the sudden flurry of activity and how his administration was doing as it neared the 100 day deadline, he resorted to the most meaningless platitudes possible. >> can you speak to us briefly about all the legislative action that you are planning next week? how are you going to accomplish all that? >> it's going to be great. it'll happen. >> you're gonna do healthcare and tax reform? >> we'll see what happens. no particular rush, but we'll see with happens. but healthcare is coming along well.
government is coming along really well. >> seth: that's the president on the united states saying government is coming along really well. it's like going home to our wife and saying, "hello, wife, our marriage is coming along really well." this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with jason sudeikis everybody. m♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

[ light laughter ] or even like, "oh i gotta see that. i gotta leave home." >> seth: so wait, what she does shows up on an ipad? >> fantastic. >> seth: yeah, i can't. >> 12 dollars, i have to find parking. nine dollars for a popcorn, yeah man, let's get into it. >> seth: i saw it in the theater. >> i know i -- >> seth: it's very exciting. >> cause you get free [ bleep ] on this show. seth: i do. >> i know that. you get to see -- you miss part of the gig. >> seth: i could've just watched it on a laptop and just been with it. >> i'm so flattered when people go to theaters. i mean i believe in it completely. every time we do like a screening, or like a q and a, the thing i always say at the end is like, "thank you for leaving your homes." >> seth: yeah. >> because we all have access to like, you know, like hundred dollar like led screens and whatever. you can find whateveyo
>> seth: but the nice thing too about going to the theaters then you can't do other stuff while you're watching it. >> yeah. >> seth: and i just had a sense, because, and i want you to explain the movie a little bit more. i knew this was a movie that i couldn't just take time off during. >> yep. >> seth: there's a lot of movies where you just enjoy it, but you als know, "i know what these super-heroes are gonna for the next 15 minutes." >> absolutely, yeah. >> seth: cause when they're gonna have a meeting, and i'm gonna do my emails. >> right, exactly yeah. a hundred percent. no, this one, yeah, this one you gotta you gotta stay connected to it. >> seth: so tell us a bit about "colossal." >> well again, it's tough to -- it's tough to sort of explain. >> seth: alright, cause there's twists. >> there's twists and stuff like that, but also you know i found myself before doing it and people ask, you know, us you know, "what are you doing now"? i mean you're lucky. they know what you're doing. >> seth: yeah. >> like for like olivia and i, it's always like, "what's next?" it's like, "well, just you know, gonna go home after this." they always wanna know like what's next. so for a while there's, "oh, i'm doing this movie um", and i'd take five minutes to describe it, and they would just lose people. and then i asked the writer/director, this spanish fellow named nacho vigalondo, the movie," he
tell people there's a movie about a woman who goes back to their home and every time she drinks, a monster attacks seoul." i was like, "okay, i'll do that." so i started doing that and people would still be like, "okay." [ laughter ] and then i'd be like, "and the girl is played by anne hathaway." and they're like, "oh, okay, alright. you're still a legitimate actor. [ laughter ] okay, good yeah. you're not doing just like monster porn or something i don't know like --" >> seth: do you think she got the same response when she said sudeikis is in it. >> no, yeah, i hope not. god i hope not. god i hope not. i think maybe she'd have to break out her phone and show people a picture of me and they'd be like, "oh, he's from 'the hangover.'" and it's like, "no, different guy. different guy." >> seth: but it is great, and i highly recommend it. i thought this year, there was the film, "get out," that our friend, jordan peel did. >> of course, yeah. >> seth: which was a horror movie, that was like unlike any horror movie. and i feel like this is a sci-fi movie that ends up being a lot more about what's going on in the world in a very real way. >> yeah. >> seth: and i thought that was really cool. >> yeah, i mean nacho haes
things sniffed out on which you, you know way back when we did almost two years ago. but yeah, how much more relevant it all becomes. >> seth: you did it, you shot it in canada. >> vancouver. >> seth: vancouver. >> yeah. hollywood north. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: way more, a scary amount of people from vancouver. [ laughter ] >> yeah. because they're like, "oh i want to buy weed illegally." so that when they come to the states -- they go all the way across. >> seth: well for the thrill of it. >> for the thrill. you -- just the high. the natural high of the unnatural high. um, so we were in vancouver and it was great. i mean it's lovely. i never spent much time up there. but it's very family friendly and you know, a lot of pinball would be played in pubs around the town, which is great. good to know. also other things are there that are legal that i'm into, so that's fun. um, you know, taking rights on red, stuff like that. [ laughter ] >> seth: that was always your thing. >> always my thing. it just, it makes sense. [ light laughter ] new york, they don't get that, they don't get that. come on de blasio. enough with the freeoo
>> no, enough with the free school for children. rights on red. [ laughter ] alright, it's alright. but, yeah it was during the world series. and i'm from kansas city. >> seth: two years ago? >> two years ago, two years ago from kansas city, so i was there for the alcs, and not realizing, being a kansas city guy, showing up you know to a bar. a little wings place with my kansas city hat on, that i forgot that the blue jays are now more or less the national team for canada. so i walk into this bar, thinking, "oh, it'll just be me and maybe a couple like blue jay fans." no, everybody was a blue jay fan. and then me and then our pal rob riggle, who happened to be working in town too, also from kansas city. he's bigger than me, and a former, you know, marine, so i hid behind him the whole time, ready for, you know, some squabbling. but not the case when you get two midwesterners and then a room full of canadians. [ light laughter ] no trash talking, just everyone's in good spirits and just, "oh, heck of pitch there." you know.
yeah, yeah. high-fiving each other. well-played, well-played. i remember wearing my kansas city hat actually when i went up to toronto to see the all-star game -- the nba all-star game. and i was in an elevator, with batista. who is not well-liked outside of wherever he's playing. >> seth: yeah, he's very specific to his group of fans. >> yeah, and i was wearing a kansas-city hat and i had just played in the basketball game the night before. he goes, "hey, you played a good game." i'm doing all of these bad spanish accents. or like, you know ethnic accents. anyway he's like "hey you played a good game." i go, "oh, thank you." he goes, "i hate your hat." i go, "oh, i know you do." [ laughter ] i know buddy, i know. and then he got off the elevator and i went to my room and he probably went somewhere cooler. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: you mentioned you got two kids now. >> two, yeah. >> seth: birthdays, did you just have one? did otis just have one. >> otis just had his, yeah. >> seth: uh what was, so otis turned three, what's a three year old's birthday party like.
but you know, we had beers, we had wine for the adults. we had juice boxes for the kids. both have the same effect, i find. [ light laughter ] but the funny thing was it was the third birthday so we got everybody chance the rapper hats. as the party gifts because it has a big old three on there. so thank you chance, a pat for sending those our way. cause the parents and the kids loved them. but that morning, when i woke up, i took a shower, i get out of the shower, and our friend charlene who was helping us set up the party, just comes upstairs, knocks on the bedroom door and says, "jason, there's a leak. there's a leak in the basement. there's water all over the place." i'm like, "what are you talking about?" and i've got like pinball machines down there and, like you know, just priceless works of art of my own. [ laughter ] because they're horrible and no one should pay for them. priceless. and so i immediately got some clothes on, ran down there. and i brought a video of what it looked like in my basement. >> seth: this is, if it was blood, it'd be the scariest ho
>> seth: it's coming out of places you don't expect to see water. >> yeah, yeah. [ water running ] yeah, can they hear me right now? it's coming out of light socket and it's coming out of a carbon monoxide -- like the speaker. i literally, i was like, "i have no idea what the hell to do." my dad doesn't know stuff how to work around the house. so i by proxy have no idea. so i'm just like texting our neighbor, claire, going, "do you have a plumber. do i call 311?" it was coming out of the speakers, so i was like, "do i call an exorcist?" [ laughter ] what is going on? and the party was in three hours. >> seth: yeah. >> so a gentleman name wally shows up. just a heck of a guy. a little angel with a wrench shows up. [ light laughter ] and at this point we had already dug into the wall and couldn't find what was going on. i shut off the power. i cracked that code, figured that out through the help of a handyman through face-time. modern technology, you know, fantastic. thank you tim cook. and next think you know, right as wally gets there.
willy wonka. willy gets there and he says, and it stopped. just like you bring the car into the thing and it stops making the noise. and i'm like, "aw hell." so then he leaves. right after he leaves, it starts gushing down again. and i'm like okay, so then he comes in, he fixes it. we have to turn it off. now the party started. now it's 4:00. we have 25 adults, 25 kids, no one can use the toilet. [ audience oohs ] so now i'm like okay this is either a good or bad thing. kids, the majority of them have diapers. a lot of parents i assume don't, you know. [ laughter ] because they're on the younger side. and so we had to send them to like our neighbor's house. and i had couple of real blunt conversations with some of the parents. like what's going with the bathroom? i go, "do you have to go?" he goes, "yeah." i go, "one or two." and he's like, he looked at me like -- i'm an adult man, i have to take a piss. i'm like, "go ahead, just don't flush. don't flush, go ahead." so he did it. but then, you know, willy took care of it and we were able to flan
>> seth: yeah, i mean, and also, for a kid, best thing that could ever happen at a birthday party, just water everywhere. >> water everywhere. yeah, i should have brought them down and just held them in the -- it was clean water. it wasn't sewer water. and then later that night as i'm reading to otis, the carbon monoxide -- like -- [ beep ] starts going off. and then the phone rings because it's like connected to like a security system. they're like, they're like, "you teed to leave the house. we have an alarm going off in the basement." and like in my head i'm like, i don't say this out loud, i'm like, "oh, the one that had water streaming through it." it's okay. so i hang up. next thing you know two fire trucks, you know nyfpd, they show up. it was amazing. like i just was reading with otis, and they show up like nine firemen dressed in full regalia, two blaring sirens with all the cherries going. everybody's looking out the neighborhood, going, "what the hell is going on now?" i wish it would have happened during the party. we would have had the best party ever. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: yeah. but no, it happens at bedtime. oh, well. >> seth: jason sudeikis
