>> seth: trump wandered onto the white house lawn on friday for an impromptu interview with "fox & friends" where he rambled about everything from china toso trade and fo reason decided to lavish praise on his supporters. >> i have ppe greatest ters in the world. by the way, they're the smartest, they're the hardest working, they pay taxes, they're incredible, they're loyal. i have the bikers, i have th construction workers, i have them all. >> seth: trump is such a phony, the only jobs he can name are ville people. [ laughter and applause ] i have the bikers, the ti constr workers. i've got the cops, the sailors, the leher men. trump right now is dealing with a series of massive scandals. his campaign chairman was just thrown in jail. and his administration is tearing children away from their parents at the border. so, naturally "fox & friends" asked the hard hitting questions. >> yesterday a big day, not only did the ag report come out, but it was yr birthday. >> that's right. >> get any good presents?
>> iot a lot of good kisses. i got a lot of phone calls from people that i would never have gotten phone calls from. i got phone calls from- who'd you get the kisses from? >> from my beautiful wife. >> seth: is it me? or does steve doocy sound a little jealous? [ laughter ] who'd yoget the kisses from? [ laughter ] is she prettier than me? does she also kiss you on your beautiful ass? trump was also asked about reports that several of his s closest aie heading for the exits including press secretary sarah huckabee sanders. and said thi >> sarah huckabee sanders, your press secretary. >> yeah. f >> she -- she took a lotat yesterday from the people behind you. there were some suggestion that e'd be leaving the white house. >> i don't think so. you know, look, at a certain point everyone sort of leaves. you have to leave. i'm sort of just staying like a ship, just keep going, bing bing. [ laughter ] >> seth: that analogy doesn't mean what you think it means.
if people are jumping off a ship, that means the ship is sinking. you're thinking of a bus. "i'm like a ship and everyone is jumping off the side of the ship which is a shame because this ship is headed for the most beautiful place, ice mountain." now, yesterday was father's day. and on father's day trump did what all dads do ofather's y. he got up bright and early to tweet unhinged things about the ongoing crimin investigation of his presidential campaign. >> the president sunday on the attack tweeting, "witch hunt! there was no russian collusion. oh, i see there wano russian collusion, so now they look for obstruction on the no russian collusio the phony russian collusion was a made up hoax. too bad they didn't look at crooked hillary like this. double standard!" >> seth: why does trump write his tweets like a thought occurred to him in the middle of it?[ ughter ] we're like a week away from s ump tweeting every single thought that occ him.
"there was no russian collusion. oh, i see, there was no russian collusion, so now they look for obstruction. send tweet. oh, i'm so hungry. i want a cheeseburger so bly, but i can't have one because of the democrats' witch hunt. ooh, tummy rumbling, hungry, i hate this job so much. i am so bad at it. someone get me a cheeseburger, golf. cheeseburger, golf. cheeseburger, have no more thoughts brain empty. must watch fox news anll." [ cheers and applause ] trump's outburst came amid a major development in the russia investigation. his former campaign chairman paul manafort who is awaitinff trial on 23 ent counts was sent to jail on friday for allegedly attempting to interfere in the investigation by contacting witnses. >> paul manafort is going to jail. the judge, amy berman jackson, said that manafort's repeated attempts to contact tnesses constituted a danger to the integrity of t court. >> manafort called person d1.n on per's cellular phone. person d1 sought to avoid manafort. so person d1 ended the call.
manafort also sent person d1 a text message on an encpted application stating, "this is paul." [ laughter ] >> seth: paul manafort tried to contact witnesses, which is a crime, to lie about his other . alleged crim and he literally wrote in a texs message, "s paul." [ laughter ] even your weed dear knows enough not to text the word, "weed." al, did you think robert mueller wouldn't be watching? look at him. the man doesn't even blink. he won a staring contest with the lincoln memorial.[ ughter ] in a tweet, trump says sending manafort to jail was a tough sentencend called it very unfair. so trump has sympathy for his former campaign chairman accused of conspiracy against the united states and sent to jail for al ged witness tampering. but, what about children fleeing violence and sking asylum with their parents? this will shock you. trump has much less sympathy for them. >> your numbers toda department of homeland security show the impact of the administration's new crackdown egal immigration at the border.
over a six-week period nearly 2,000 kids, 1,995 ch, werepa ted from nearly as many adults. >> seth: now, if this policy strikes you as monstrous, an inhumane, and cruel then, you're a decent person. in other words, you are not attorney general jeff sessions. last week sessions defended the policy by citing the bible. >>edllegal entry into the un states is a crime. it should be and must be if u're going to have a legal system and have any limits whatsoever. persons who violate the law of our nation are subject to prosecution. if you violate the law, you subject yourse to prosecution. i would cite you the apostle paul and his clear and wise companion romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because god has ordained the government for his purposes. >> seth: o face. at sessions' have you seen a creepier smile?b he cites tle like a guy
challenging someone else's word in scrabble. "wl, i'm sorry, but mr. dictionary doesn't see your word. it's just not in here." also, you know who's gotta be really pissed right now? the apostle paul. you never hear anything about that dude, and then all of a sudd he gets blamed for this i know he is an apostle so he doesn't swear, but seriously. it's hard not to believe he's up there right now saying, "dude, v me the [ bleep ] out of this, i don't --" [ light laughter ] white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders was asked how the white house could possibly defend that comment and she immediately doteled down in e exchange with a reporter. >> i'm not aware of the attorney general's comments or what he ef would beencing. i can say that it is very biblical to enforce the law. >> seth: i should note, it's also very biblical to stone people to death, to sleep with 600 concubines, to have conversations with flaming bushes and to believe a 500 yeard old man ilt a giant boat and put giraffes on it. [ laughter ]
and it got even worse from there. >> that is actually repeated a o numbtimes throughout the bible. however -- [ inaudible ] hold on, jim. y 'll let me finish. again, i'm not going to comment on the attorney's specific comments that i haven't seen. >> you just said it's in the bible to follow the law. >> that's not what i said. and i know it'hard for you to understand even short sentences, i guess. [ audience ohs ] >> seth: he can't understand short sentences? trump's own aides say they have to fill his briefings with le pictures and bpoints. i'm pretty sure his briefing for the north korea summit looked like this. [ laughter and applause ]w, o be clear, this is not a law. it's a policy announced by choice by the trump administration. you just heard sessions and sanders defend it. and they're not the only ones. the "new york time reported over the weekend that one of the central figures in the trump administration pushing for the family separation policy was nonether than senior policy advisor stephen miller. [ lighing cracks ] [ laughter ]
over the weekend, miller briefly took human form to take credit for the policy, telling the sitimes it was a simple de by the administration to have a zero tolerance policy for illegal entry period. the message is that no one is exempt from immigration law. wow, you know you're evil when you want credit for a policy this cruel. miller is like a serial killer who leaves clues for the police. in fact he didn't even give that quote to the times he just cut ant letters from a magazin slipped it under a reporter's door. [ laughter and applause ] so again, to be absolutely clear. this is not a law. it's a choice by the administration and they can end it right now. and yet, trump is trying to gaslight the country into thinking it's actually the au democrats' that this policy exists. watch as he just keeps repeating the lie over and over asrt res explain to him that he's wrong. >> do you agree with childawn being take from their -- at the border? >> no, i hate it. i hate the children being taken away.s the democrve to change their law. that's their law. >> so, why has jeff sessions nounced a zero tolerance policy at the border on may 7th.
is that not a republican -- >> because, he's followinghe law. >> is that not a republican policy? >> no, he's following laws -- he's following a law -- >> so that was a direct order to -- >> can i answer your question, >> yes. >> you're just asking me the same question over and over. he following laws, very simply, that were given to us, enforced upon us by the democrats. >> but there's no law that says that families have to be e parated at the border. >> the democrats g the laws. >> seth: he just repeats the same lie over and over. and, i'm sorry, but that lie is even less convincing than this one. >> i got a lot of good kisses. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: here's what's really going on. trump is doing this as a bargaining chip. he's holding these children hostage so that he can get his border wall. told the use offici "washington post" last week the thinking in the building is to force people to the table. and trump himself has said as much in his tweets and in his comments to reporters. >> the president tweeted quoting here "the democrats are forcing the breakup of families at the
border with their horrible and cruel legislative agenda. any immigration bill must have i full f for the wall and catch and release, visa lottery and chd go to merit based immigration. go for it, win." >> we need a wall, we need border security. we've gotta get rid of catch and release. >> well there's another way to go about it, mr. president. >> the democrats gave us the laws. now, i want the laws to be beautiful, humane but strong.ul >> seth: beauthumane and strong. trump's lies are starting to sound like the tinder profile of a russian scammer trying to catfish you. "my name is kelsey, i am 21, beautiful, humane strong. you send bank routing number, now please?" this policy -- this policy is monstrous and morally repugnant and it is ing done in our name. any elected official who doesn't call for an immediate end to it is complicit. and anyone associated with it eyould resign in disgrace or as trump would put hould go -- >> bing, bing.
