[ applause ] moving on, everybody, republicans are applauding president trump's summit with l north koreder kim jong-un, as trump faces a mountain of new legal problems. for more on thisa it's time for oser look. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: in the span of just a few days, trump mana throw a tantrum over a summit with our allies at the g7, called for
12:42 am
russia to be admitted back into the group, and lavished praise on brutal dictator kg-un. every day, he acts more and more like an nba player who is trying to get traded to a rival team. [ light laughter ] and yesterday he returned to a familiar target, the media. >> the president is on the proverbial war path. another tweet from this morning. quote, "so funny to watch the fake new cnn.ecially nbc and they're fighting hard to downplay the deal with north kore 500 days ago they would have begged for this deal. looked like war would break out. our country's biggt enemy is the fake news so easily promulgated by fools." >> seth: oooh, promulgated. [ laughter ] a itays great when he tweets a word you know he'd never take a swing at in al life. [ light laughter ] it's like if your pizzowdelivery guy up wearing a monologue, get out of here with that [ bleep ]. not a monologue, a monocle. i tell a monologue. [ laughter ] and -- [ cheers and applause ]
12:43 am
the problem is, at happened is, even though i'm doing "a closer look," in my head i'm d thinking i [ bleep ] kile monologue tonight. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] sonything -- even close. [ light laughter ] so trump has once again declared the media america's biggest enemy. eathing who's really a sigh of relief right now? isis. those guys are like, "i know crazy, but i think we're in the clear." [ laughter ] of course, trump's media comment came and went without a peep from elected replican leaders. now, if it seems to you like the gop is cultishly loyal to trp, you're not alone. tennessee senator bob corkermu admitted a yesterday. >> we're in a strange place. i mean, it's almost -- you know, been a -- it's becoming a cultish thing, isn't it? and it's not a good place for any party to end up with a cult-like situation as it
12:44 am
relates to -- to a president at appens to be of purportedly of the same parties. >> seth: oh, come on, it's not a cult. in a cult you ve to abandon all your beliefs and have weird sex with a bunch of people, and -- okay, maybe it's a cul [ light laughter ] north korean leader kim ng-un. now remember, republicans in fox news lost their minds when president obama bowed to saudi arabia's king and shook hands with venezuelan president hugo chavez. and yet, they were silent today when koran state treleased this previously unseen footage of trump saluting a north koreaf militaryer. ♪ >> seth: okay, wow, not only did trump salute a military officer from a brutal dictatorship, but the guy gave trump a down low, too slow. [ laughter and applause ] look at that. [ cheers and applause ]
12:45 am
sorry, dog. by the way, check out kim jong-un's face after trumpfi salutes the r. [ laughter ] he's smiling but he's definitely thinking, "oh man, t you got that on tape." , laughter ] again, to be cle cannot stress this enough. plomacy is good. talking is infinitely better than threats of war. but it doesn't require gushing over a brutal dictator or manufacturing preposterous lies, which trump did again just last night. for example, he and kim struck a deal to return the remains of s u.s. soldio died in the korean war. now, u.s. involvement in the korean war ended in 1953. so if we're being generous, the parents of those soldiers would be at least 100 years old. which makes this claim trump made last night on fox news very hard to believe. >> one of the things tally i'm happy is that the soldiers that died in kor, their remains are going to be coming back home. and we have thousands of peoplet ave asked for that.
12:46 am
thousands and thousands of people. so many people asked when i was on the campaign, i'd say, wait a minute. hii don't have any relatio but they said when you can, president, we'd love our son to be brought back home. you know, the remains. >> seth: there is no way that story is it accurate. [ laughter ]es why rump always have to make up a little one act play where someone begged him for me ing and he got it done? [ light laughter ] if he signed a bill making june , 14th, national cupcake d would say, "oh a little old lady came up to me. she said please mr. trump, my in son's wish was that june 14th would be cupcake day. please sir, is there anything you can do? and i said i would, but the democrats won't let me. [ light ughter ] but then, i did it because i'm strong and i absolutely don't have dementia." [ laughter and applause ] it's never been clear. it's never been clearer that the republican party is tr party. and the gop's silence enables trump as he contends with one scandal after anothe in fact, every day seems to bring fresh new legal trouble r trump.
12:47 am
before trump even started his presidency, he settled a fraud lawsuit against trump university.an now he's eed in multiple criminal probes. and today, he got yet another lawsuit to worry about. this time, over his scandal plagued charity, the trump undation. er>> new york's attorney g is now suing president trump and three of his children, ivanka, eric, and don jr., regarding president's personal charity. the suit alleges persistentlt illegal condaiming the president repeatedly misused the nonprofit's funds, paying off business debts, golf club decorations, and multi million t dollarays at his campaign events in 2016.s >> seth: thaght, trump used money from des charity to rate his golf club. when he should have used it to spruce up his golf look.la hter ] look at him, he looks like droopy's deadbeat dad. [ laughter and applause ] and on top of all that, trump is also dealing with the fact that his personal attorney and fixer michael cohen is under federal criminal investigation. cohen set up a secret shell
12:48 am
company to pay off stormy daniels and took in millions from major companies and a russian oligarch. and now, even cohen seems to be expeing an indictment. >> trump allies reportedly view the legal cloud hanging over trump's former attorney michael cohen at -- as at least as omino investigation.ller's michael cohen has told friends that he expects to be arrested any day now, according to a source close to cohen. >> seth: in fairness, he's probably been expecting to be arrested for years. [ light laughter ]ab cohen pr rsvp's to weddings "yes, unless indicted." [ laughter and applause ] trump and his inner circle are clearly very nervous about cohen. therobably no one closer to trump and his personal finances. and trump's confidants admit that if cohen were to turn on tralp, he could cause trump damage. one former white house officialf told "vanir," "trump should be super worried about michael cohen. if any one can blow up trump, it's him." i'm sorry, but donald trump has already blown up. [ light laughter ] he's blown himself up 1,000 times walking away.keeps
12:49 am
he's president wile e coyo. [ laughter ] and like wile e coyote, trump has been obsessed with trying to catch his roadrunner, special counsel robert mueller. mueller's the one who referred the cohen case to prosecutors in new york. and trumhas attacked him relentlessly, calling mueller's investigation rigged and unconstitutional. and yet, both mueller's probe and the cohen investigation have escalated rapiy. in fact cohen himself might even be helping them. ou >> the white is closely watching what happens with the president's former personal attorney and f who is seeking new legal council. the question looming large here, could cohen be ready to flip on bcs former boss? >> sources tellingews cohen is likely to cooperate with federal prosecutors. >> seth: wow, so the president's personal fixer is going to cooperate with federal prosecutors. robert mueller, any comment? >> meemeep. [ laughter ] s h: of course, trump's other big target has been ex-fbi director james comey trump has claimed comey was
12:50 am
biased against him. today, the justice department inspector general finally released a report on comey's actions during the 2016 campaign. and if anything, this report makes it clear that comey helped trump by reopening the investigation into hillary clinton's emait days before the election. and on top of that, the report includes this infuriating detaio abouy's own email use. >> there's a portion of the report that says james comey used a personal email account, a ail account, to conduct fbi business. >> seth: that's right. james comey was using a private email account while he was investigating hillary cl for using a private email account. [ light laughter ] the issue that the entire rection revolved around, and one of the biggesons donald trump was elected president. so if you'll excuse me for just one second, i'm going to put my head on the desk and mutter mother [ bleep ]. [ laughter ] mother [ bleep ]! [ cheers and appuse ] this has been "a closer look."
