12:43 am
n, trump has a lot going o which means, of course, that he decided to take time out of his schedule to call into a fox morning show and once again spent so much time on the phone that at the end of the interview, the host, maria rtiromo, repeatedly tried to get him to hang up. [ laughter ] ts >> everybody waneople to go out and find out what the hell happened.wh e did all of this corruption start? when you have strzok and page. >> and certainly our viewers want to >> the lov we call them. >> yeah. our viewers want to know that. >> said we wanted insurance policies. >> mr. president, thank you so much. >> hillary clinton loses. [ laughter ] a "we wantinsurance policy where we can get trump out." well, it didn't work so well. but i tell you what. >> yeah.ur >> it really hour country and it hurts our country. [ light laughter ] these people are corrupt. >> yeah. >> and then you look at a guy like brennan with his big mouth. but it's a everyoants to know, maria, and you might be number one on the list -- i watch your show. you're incredible. you may be number one on the list. >> thank you. >> everybody wants to know how did it start, why did it start.t what ahe dossier.
12:44 am
>> well, we want to know. [ laughter ] >> how much did hillary clinton pay for the dossier? you know she paid for it. you know. >> yeah. >> everybody wants to know about it and that's really -- hopefully they'll be going there. >> seth: my god, that was like watching your grandpa try to ge off thone with his grandpa. [ laughter and applause ] she ran out of minutesn her plan. he's like one of those guy who is calls a restaurant to place r an order felivery and then tries to have a conversation with the staff. [ laughter ] "yeah, i'll take a large pepperoni and, hey, what's your name? you always been interested in pizza?" [ laughter ] erknow it's hard to rememb this sometimes, but that guy is the most powerful man in the world. he should be, like, dostuff. and maria knows. i mean, look at her face. [ laughter ] that -- that's the face you make when your friend says, "i want to set you up with a guy. he's a count." hed then halfway through t dinner you realize she meant he can count. [ laughter ] "oh, i know them all. one, two, three.
12:45 am
can't liveithout that number." [ laughter ] but aside from rambling incoherently about whatever he was rambling about, trump also t repe the dangerous line he's been using lately about the investigation of him and his campaign. that it was an attempted coup erd the people behind it w traitors. he used it in the interview with bartiromo and repeated it in speeches in interviews over the last few wks. >> this was an attempted coup. this was an attempted takedown of a president and they got caught. and what they did was treason. this was really a coup attempt. >> it's all quite extraordinary, mr. presidendn >> it di work. we caught them. >> yeah. >> they tried for a coup. didn't work out so well. this was coup. this was an attempted overthrow of the united states government. >> seth: so there you go. that's what the president said. "this was a coup and the people who orchestrated it were traitors." and if there's anything trump thates, it's traitors who to overthrow the united states government. >> some said there were very fine people on both sides of this -- i've answered that question. if you look at what i said, you will see that question was answered perfectly.
12:46 am
and i was talking about people that went, because they felt very strongly about the monument to robert e. lee a great general. whether you like it or not, he was one of the great generals. >> seth: first of all, no, he wasn't. [ laughter ] he led an armed rebellion to bring down the united states govement and he lost. in other words -- >> they tried for a coup. didn't work out so well. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth:nd on top of that -- on top of that. i can't believe we have to keep saying this, but your response c toharlottesville was not perfect. there were very fine people on both sides. they were literal white supremacists showing, "jews will not replace us." and they were caying tiki torches, which is something we'll never forget. because now when you buy a tiki torch, you have to go out of y, your way to sawe're having a barbecue! stlaughter ] it's for barbecue f." but of course, trump couldn't just stop at heaping praise on a traitorous general who defendedv sly and tried to bring down the united states government. he also had to heap some praise on himself. >> how old is too old to be
12:47 am
president? >> well, i think that -- i just feel like a young man. i'm so young! [ lighlaughter ] i can't believe it. i'm the youngest person. i am a young, vibrant man. [ laughter ] [ audience ohs ] >> seth: i can't believe i have to say this, but we can see you] [ laught [ applause ] i mean, what are we even supposed to do with that information? that's a 72-year-old president of the united states, a man who spend most of his time watching cable tv and riding around in a golf cart. and stands like he's in "weekend at bernie's." [ laughter ] i mean, here he is at his golf club recently with fellow lumpy grandpa rush limbaugh. [ laughter ]ok and lot that. it's like an episode of "star trek" where a transporter malfunction creates a second trump. nglaughter ] and a case defendi robert e. lee or calling him a young, vibrant man wasn't enough, trump also made a bunch of public appearances where, as usual, sounds came out of his mouth that sounded vaguely like
12:48 am
human words. >> look, it's a rigged system, okay? if i told you how crazy it is, the web -- it's a web. you need 193 iq to even understand. this web of geniuses, they put this thing to lower drug price. it has 19 effects here and 27 -- we got it down and we're going to get idown further. we have the smartest people, the best people in the world working on it. this treaty threatened your bj suate. [ laughter ] and you know exactly what's going on here. your rights. i always say this, because as good as that equipment is -- and it's genius, the greatest equipment in the world is a dog. [ laughter ] dogs, a certain type of german shepherd in particular. dogs do a better job tn $400 million worth of -- equipment. >> seth: i mean, good lord, it's like getting cnered at a party by a guy who's almost run out of
12:49 am
cocaine. [ laughter ] [ sniffs ] t "i use a dogugh, that's what i use." [ laughter ] the only thing that's impressive about trump is that the range of subjects he rambles about gets e wiand wider every day. most of the time, he'll say the same stuff over and over about building a wall or crooked hillary or fake news.a but once in ile, he'll mix in something totally bat [ bleep ] crazy like smart dogs with high iqs. [ light laughter ] or whatever the hell he was talking about. honestly, there's a good chance someone switched his fox news to an episode of "wishbone" and he thought it was real. [ laughter ] "you have to see this dog, so smart. [ light laughter ] so it's solving mysteries." [ laughter ] also -- also -- [ cheers and applause ] can we - can we hear the crowd reaction to that line? >> the greatest equipmt in the world is a dog. dogs. [ applause ] a certain type of ph german sheerd in particular. >> seth: the weirdest thing about being at a trump speech is those moments you have to hesitantly clap for stuff yo know you don't understand. [ laughter ]
12:50 am
"yeah, dogs. [ laughter ] yeah, the best equipment's a dog, right? [ light laughter ] we didn't elect a [ bleep ] maniac, right? [ laughter ] yeah. e yeah. yeah." [ laughter ] because all this dumb stuff keeps happening, it's impossible to remember that special counsel robert mueller's final report th came out less two weeks ago. and it confirmed much of what we already suspected about trump, including the fact that he and his team openly welcomed the help of russians seeking to interfere in the election and repeatedly lied about it and tried to interfere in the investigation of we've basically known that for two years, but now we have a 400-page report to prove it. i mean, even the page count looks bad for trump. if youired a private detective to find out if your wife is cheating and he sent you 400 pages -- [ laughter ] you wouldn't even read them. you'd go straight to your lawyer's office. [ laughter ] you're like, "chad has his own section?" [ laughter ] and let's remember, the report specifically listed ten times
12:51 am
trump may have obstructed justice. and mueller's te even went out of their way to say explicitly that they could not exonerate them. instead, mueller specifically turned it over to congress. >> while mueller stopped short ta ng a position on obstruction, his words suggest congress now has a role to play. he writes, quote, "we concluded that congress has authority to prohibit a president's corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice." >> this is from the mueller report. "the conclusion that congress may apply the obstruction laws t president's corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law." >> seth: it's amazing trump and his suppts are celebrating this as an exoneration when mueller keeps hinting that congress could take actions that were unavailable to mueller. for example, in footnote 574, appendix b, subsection 48c, mueller writes -- mpeachment." [ laughter ] the facts couldn't have been any clearer in mueller's report.
12:52 am
tngress has the authority investigate trump for obstruction of justice and hold him accountable for it. to rein in a lawless president. you have all the evidence you need, but if you still want to find more evidence, just remember -- >> the gatest equipment in the world is a dog. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with our friend glenn howerton, everybody.
