[ laughter ] president trump showed north korean leader kim jong-un a four minute video on an ipad during their meeting. said trump when it was over, "yeah, that stormy daniels." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i mean --
following a summit with leader kim jong-un, president trump said that felt foolish, using inflammatory language about ourth korea, but said he had to do it to bring theries together. added trump, and now that that's behind us, me and little rocket fat ass can get down to business. [ laughter and applause senate majority leader mitch mcconnell today became the longest serving republican leader in senate history, serving eleven years, five months, and ten days, and it's really taken a tol'son him. hehat he looked like the day he was sworn in.

[ cheers and applause ] he's one of the best at what he does. i'm so excited to talk to him. president trump, and kim jong-un met in singapore tuesday for the fit ever summit between an american president, and a north korean leader. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] seth: no matter your feelings on donald trump, he is currently attempting diplomacy over war which is undeniably the beer option. that said, i do have some
concerns based on some things id donald trumpnd said yesterday, and also based on the fact that he's donald trump. [ light laughter ] for example, trump has managed this summit very much like a made for tv spectacle, fueling speculation about whether it would even happen or tenting commemorative coins, writing dramatic l, and staging photo ops with gameshow sized envelopes. [ light laughter ] look at that, it looks like trump is auditioning to be the next mascot for gmail. [ laughter ] and the media has responded in kind.ex yesterday fople, they spent the day obsessively tracking kim jong-un's whereabouts in singapore as he made his way aut the town. >> kim jong-un, someone who rarely leaves his own country. this is the furthest he's ever traveled -- a is o about on the town in singapore. >> kim jong-un to be out strolling the streets of singore. >> now you see him walking around the streets of singapore. he has crowds of people, i can o see the road, lots of people taking photos of him, waving at him. >> we don't know whether te's going bathe st. regis hotel, or for another stop, but clearly you know the night is young for kim jong-un.
[ light laughter ] >> a walking into the marina bay sands, a very popular hotel and casino -- has a casino inside of it. a>> kim jong-un hanging oa nightclub in singapore. [ light laughter ] >> seth: good lord, why not just make an old-timey news reel. ah, singapore, the jewelf the orient folks here are all a flutter about the upcoming summit. why who's this? it's none other than north korean dictator kim jong-un. taking a break from torturing his own people to pose for a few snaps with american businessman don trump. shake it away, boys. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] imagine being in that nightclub. [ light laughter ] is that kim jong-un? [ laughter ] now, in the run up to this meeting, trump admitted that he wasn't doing much to prepare. later he tried to ck away from
that comment, and as usual rambled his way into talking about the 2016 election and hillary clinton. >> i didn't say that. i said i've be preparing all life. i always believe in preparation, but i've been preparing all my life. you know these one week preparations, they don't work. just ask to her in the debates. >> seth: oh, so trump prepared for this summit the same fay he prepar the debates. [ light laughter ] what was that meeting like, just three hours of trump stalking kim jong-un around a room? [ laughter and applause ] what happens when the world's slowest pursuer chases the world's slowest ey? tonight on "planet earth: sloth versus slug." [ light laughter ] so, trump admitted he didn't pr the key question going into the meeting was this. how would he know if it wa s a success? what does success even entail? and was asked that question over the weekend at the g7 in canada, and his answer did not inspire confidence.
>> how long do you think it will take you to figure out wheth a he's seriout giving -- question, how long will it take? i think within the first minute, i'll know. >> how? >> just my touch, my feel, that's what i do. [ laughter ] >> seth: touch and feel is not how you deteine the success of a summit. [ laughter ] touch and feel is how you determine whether a blouse is made of cotton. ♪ t ♪ touch the feel of cotton the fabric of my life ♪ >> seth: so trump said he'd know if kim was serious from his touch and feel, and yesterday we got to see that touch and feel with their first handshake. [ light laughter ] the first handshake and photo op in history with the north korean leader and an american president. and i'm sorry, but why can't thtse guys find a suit that them? [ laughter and applause ] look at that. [ applause ] i mean, they look like they shop at a store called business pajamas.
[ laughter ] looks like a promo picture for a movie called "honey i shrunk the dictators." [ laughter ] trump and kim then sat down for a one meeting, and look at kim's face. t just me, or is even he confused at how he got here? [ light laughter ] looks like they set up on a blind date by their weirdest friend. oh what, they were? [ laughter and applause ] in fact, just when you thought it couldn't get any crazier, dennis rodman was there in singapore for the summit. and he was interviewed on cnn wearing a maga hat and a shirt for something called pot coin. [ laughter ] i'm pretty sure pot coins are what you have to eat to hallucinate that interview. [ light laughter ] especially when, for some reason, rodman thanked his agent, former bulls coach, phil jackson, and pearl jam front man, eddieedder. >> can i thank some people though while i'm here. can i thank some people? all the good people that stood by me, darren prince, vo, all the guys that went with me,
north korea, you know i'm thanking chuck daly. i'm thanking phil jackson.ni i'm thanking jbuss. i'm thanking pete ginopolis. i'm thanking eddie vedder. th everybody that's supported me all through all these things. >> seth: good there until his eyebrows shoot up to his hairline. [ laughter ] n man, ts these days really feels like a madlib from 1999. dennis rman was in singapore promoting pot coin, where he thanked eddie vedder at a summit th korea, and president donald trump. [ cheers and applause ] tu fact, after watching the summit, you might ly think you od'd on pop coins from how often trump, a man who has fought with everyone from allies to war heroes, complimented brutal dictator kim jong-un. >> it's my honor, and we will hai a terrific relationship have no doubt. very good. ry, very good. excellent relationship. thank you. he's got a great personality. he's a, you know, funny guy. 's a very smart guy. he's a great negotiator. great personality and very
smart. a very wthy, very smart gotiator, absolutely, and we had a terrific day. >> what did you learn about him, sir? >> i learned he's a very talented man. well he is very talented. anybody that takes over a situation likee did at 26 years of age, and is able to run it, and run it tough. >> seth: what are you talking about?ug [ er ] this is a guy who starves his own citizens, and assassinates people with anti-aircraft guns you're talking about him like he started apple in his garage.er [ laug but i guess it shouldn't surprise me that trump's idea of talent is getting rich by taking over your dad's business. trump was born on third base, whereas kim was bornird base and then shot the third baseman. [ light laughter ] in fact, trump seemed as interested in looking forward at potential business opportunities in nor getting kim to give up his nuclear weapons. >> as an example, they have great beaches. [ light laught ] you see that whenever they are exploding their cannons into the ocean.
[ laughter ] i say, boy look at that beach. wouldn't that make a great condo here, and i explained. i said, you know, instead of doing that, you could have the best hotels in the world right there. a think of it freal estate perspective.ci >> seth: he ntally told a great [ bleep ] joke. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i mean, "they have great beaches. you can see it when e exploding their cannons into th oceans," ieat [ bleep ] joke. that would be like me coming ton work todaysaying i accidentally signed a treaty. [ light laughter ] even when he's in the mi ole of a summr nuclear weapons, he's still trying to sell his [ bleep ] hotel time share. if you give up your nuclear weapons now you can stay one night free at my new hotel pyongyang.nd [ laughterpplause ] but again, diplomacy with north korea is undeniably -- it's a good thing. it is a very good thing. it's vastly preferable to fiery rhetoric, or threats of nuclear
war. the problem isn't that trump is engaging in diplomacy. the problem is that he doesn't know what he's doing, and only cares about optics. for example, at their working nch yesterday, trump ask photographers to make sure he and kim looked good, but watch kim's face after trump's comment. >> very nice. getting a good picture everybody, so we look nice, and handsome, and thin. >> beautiful. [ speaking foreign language ] [ laughter ] >> seth: okay. so now here i can, if you are wondering, i can -- there is an explanation here. you see, he's a ruthless dictator. [ light laughter ] that was the first time he's ever heard that he's not thin. [ laughter ] l you'king at a ten time people's republic sexiest man in the world. [ light laughter ] in fact, trump is apparently so obsessed with the optics of this summit that his white house made an action movie trailer for the meeting, and played it for reporters before his press conference. trump even said he showed the
trailer to kim jong-un on an ipad. again, this is a real video made by our white house. ♪ >> 7 billion people inhabit planet earth. of those alive today, only a small number will leave a lastg impact. destiny pictures, presents a story of opportunity. a new story. a new begiing. one of peace. two men, two leaders, one destiny. featuring president donald trump and chairman kim jong-un in a meeting to remake history. >> seth: is that an official white house video, or a direct to dvd movie starrin steven seaga [ laughter ] the white house is under siege, and only one president turned karate mastecan stop them. steven seagal stars as presidena trump inwondonald." [ laughter ]
of course, when president obama said he would meet with h norea without pre-conditions, republicans mocked him as naïve and incompetent, but today trump ho supporters arering him with praise, in fact trump even seemed to make a major concession in north korea, apparently without running it by military officials, or south korea first. he promised to stop joint military exercises in the region. trump explained his decision this way. >> we call them war games. and i call them war game and they're tremendously expensive. the amount of money that we spd on that is incredible. we fly in bombers from guam. i said it when i first started i said, where do the bombers come from? guam, nearby. i said, oh great, nearby. where is nearby? 6.5 hours. 6.5 hours, that's a long time for these big massive planes to be flying to south korea to th practice, an drop bombs all over the place, and then go back to guam. a i knot about airplanes. [ laughter ]>> eth: you know a lot about airplanes? because people who know a lot
about airplanes don't have to say "i know a lot about airplanes." [ laughter ] if you got on a flight you would be worried if you heard your g pilot say, "we're expectme light turbulence on our way to sunny florida. lt should take about 3.5 hours. thanks for flying i know a lot about airplanes." [ laughter ] again, diplomacy, so much better than threats of war, athis summit ratchets down the tension, then that's a good thing. we just have to hope trump doesn't mess it up, because when it comes to messing things up. >> that's what i do.
