tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC July 28, 2016 12:37am-1:38am PDT
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- amy sedaris, from "star trek beyond," john cho, music from bleached, featuring the 8g band with matt cameron. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. >> seth: good evening. i'm seth meyers, this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] good. that is good to hear. let's get to the news. hillary clinton last night officially became the democratic nominee for president, and i think it shows how far we've come as a nation, that a woman
can be tied in the polls with a spray tanned mentally ill business failure. [ laughter ] [ applause ] donald trump this morning called russia's alleged hacking of democratic e-mail servers an act of total disrespect toward our country. and then he winked so hard the back of his wig unsnapped. [ laughter ] donald trump this afternoon called on russia to hack into hillary clinton's e- mail account to find the 30,000 messages she deleted from her time as secretary of state. donald, i think you misunderstood something. your party wants you to appeal to the red states, not the red state. [ laughter ] bill clinton -- [ cheers and applause ] bill clinton, last night, at the democratic convention, opened his speech with the line, "in the spring of 1971, i met a girl." and the whole audience immediately thought, "oh, god, i hope he's talking about hillary." [ laughter and applause ] please.
please. now is not the time. [ laughter ] bill clinton gave a speech last night about his relationship with hillary clinton, and told the audience that it took him three tries before hillary agreed to marry him. so two less tries than it took hillary to get on the subway. [ laughter ] she's just not great at getting on the subway, that's all. following michelle obama's address at the democratic convention on monday, donald trump told interviewers that he liked her speech. said trump, "it's gonna sound even better in a slovenian accent." [ laughter ] [ as trump ] "we're saving it. [ applause ] there are parts of it that we're gonna save." during a recent trip to paris for her world tour, beyonce reportedly stayed in a hotel suite that cost $19,000 a night. and that didn't even include the pull out cot for jay z. [ laughter ]
a number of athletes are complaining there are no pokémon go characters to catch in the olympic village at rio's summer games, which is surprising because that place is just crawling with zikachus. [ laughter and applause ] yeah. you maybe don't gotta catch them? though, frankly, if you're in the olympic village and you're upset there aren't any pokémon to catch, something tells me you're not bringing home the gold. [ laughter ] officials at the rio olympics are saying that sewage seeping into the sailing and swimming venues has gotten so bad that it has spawned drug resisted super bacteria, which is really unfair to all the regular bacteria who have worked so hard to get there. [ laughter ] an indiana rapper recently shot himself in the mouth while filming a music video, and then claimed on facebook that he swallowed the bullet. this story seems a little
far-fetched. an indiana rapper? [ laughter ] since when? and finally, former congressman anthony weiner has started threatening to enter the new york's mayoral race if donald trump, jr. decides to run. "good," said every comedian in the world. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we've got a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] she is one of our favorites. she's one of the voices on netflix's "bojack horseman," amy sedaris joins us back on the show tonight. [ cheers and applause ] he is in the new film "star trek beyond," my very old friend, the wonderful john cho is joining us. [ cheers and applause ] and we have music for you tonight from a great los angeles punk band, bleached. they're fantastic. [ cheers and applause ] you're gonna enjoy that. tomorrow night, very excited. we did it last thursday for the republican convention. we're doing it tomorrow for the democratic convention. we're gonna do a live show
tomorrow after everything wraps up with that. our guests are going to be colin jost and michael che, "weekend update" anchors, and they have both been in cleveland and philadelphia covering those conventions, so i'm looking forward to talking to them. so anyways, we're gonna be on after "the tonight show," but we are going to be live and we are looking forward to it, so please tune in. now, moving on, hillary clinton, as we mentioned, was officially nominated to be the democratic candidate for president yesterday, as protests from bernie sanders diehards continued outside. and donald trump still managed to find his way into the news by saying some wildly dangerous things about russia. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: as bernie himself helped nominate hillary inside the convention hall, outside protests by some of his supporters continued, with hundreds marching in protest at the dnc as they've done all week. including one protest in which bernie supporters carried a 51-foot joint through the streets of philadelphia. [ light laughter ] incidentally, if you're a bernie
supporter, that's the size joint you'd need to smoke to think voting for trump over hillary is a good idea. [ cheers and applause ] also -- [ applause ] also everyone knows if you have that much weed you don't roll a joint, you make brownies. [ laughter ] but bernie, who has repeatedly reiterated his support for hillary, has tried to tamp down the protests from his supporters. >> bernie sanders himself has sent e-mails and text messages to supporters to try to calm them down. >> bernie sanders sent a text message directly to his own supporters. >> "i ask you as a personal courtesy to me to not engage in any kind of protest on the floor. it's of utmost importance you explain this to your delegation. signed, bernie." >> seth: that's how badly bernie wants party unity. he's texting. [ light laughter ] and that's not easy to do on a rotary phone. [ laughter ] so you know, you know it's serious. remember, this is a man who keeps all of his speeches on paper, and even then he has some trouble, as was the case on monday when he dropped his papers into the seats below him and had to ask the people in
front of him for help. [ laughter ] he looks like an over worked public defender from an old episode "law and order." [ as bernie ] "don't say another word, jamal! and shame on you detectives for speaking to my client without counsel present!" [ light laughter ] now, donald trump, of course, has tried to capitalize on the apparent division within the democratic party, tweeting, "sad to watch, bernie sanders abandon his revolution. we welcome all voters who want to fix our rigged system and bring back our jobs." first of all, donald trump thinking he'll get bernie supporters is like "wwe raw" thinking they'll get a bunch of new viewers now that "downton abbey" is off the air. [ light laughter ] they're different shows, dude. also, the same night he tweeted that, trump mocked a bernie supporter interrupting one of his rallies. >> that's okay, don't worry about it. that's the bernie people. that's the dying remnant of a bernie person. that's the last of them. that's the last. no, we're gonna get bernie people coming here. we're gonna get bernie people coming here. yeah, you can get him out.
go ahead. that's okay. [ as trump ] >> seth: "we're gonna win bernie supporters. now forcibly remove that bernie supporter from my rally. [ light laughter ] that's the last of them. there's none left. and they're voting for me." [ laughter ] at the democratic convention monday belonged to the newer faces of the democratic party, from cory booker to elizabeth warren, whereas last night was the greatest hits album with a track from 2004 you may all remember called howard dean. dean harkened back to the so-called "dean scream" that basically ended his own presidential campaign. >> this race is going to be won on the ground. and it's going to be won in colorado, and in iowa, and north carolina, and michigan, and florida, and pennsylvania, and then we're going to the white house! [ cheers ] [ laughter ] >> seth: that was fantastic. but you know what, he didn't give us the actual scream. you remember, this one. [ dean scream ] [ laughter ]
that is not that long ago. do you remember when acting crazy on tv was a liability? instead of, you know, a platform. [ laughter ] every time howard dean watches trump speak, he must think, "i yelled one time. [ laughter ] i yelled one time and everybody thought i was crazy?" [ laughter ] although maybe howard dean didn't give us the scream last night because he was just saving it for meryl streep. [ streep scream ] [ laughter ] >> seth: ooh! look for meryl starring in "the howard dean story." [ laughter and applause ] there is no part she cannot play. of course the biggest speaker of the night was bill clinton, who sought to humanize hillary. and for anyone who thought bill would give a short speech, don't worry, he mentioned all the years. >> 1971. 1972.
1974. 1975. 1979. [ cheers ] 1980. 1982. 1983. 1995. 1997. 1999. [ cheers ] 2003. 2008. 2016. [ cheers ] [ laughter ] >> seth: you know, it is really nice and sweet that bill and hillary have known each other so long, but as it dragged on, you saw the benefits of a speech from recent spouse. "donald and i are still getting to know one another, so i'm going to keep this relatively brief." but the big moment came at the end when hillary clinton followed a performance by alicia keys and appeared on the giant screen via satellite. although, while the music continued to play as she talked, panic swept through the hall, as many thought she might be attempting to bust some rhymes. ♪ >> hello, philadelphia. [ laughter ] ♪ i am so happy. it's been a great day and night. what an incredible honor that you have given me. >> seth: no one wants to hear hillary clinton rap. if she rapped, she would make
everyone's mom look like kendrick lamar. [ laughter ] because you 100% know she would start, "my name is hillary, and i'm here to say." [ laughter ] so, of course, the biggest question hanging over the dnc has been "what has donald trump been doing while the democrats hold their convention?" well, he's been keeping it low key. just relaxing, catching up on some sleep, and of course, asking russia to hack hillary's private e-mail server. >> russia, if you're listening, i hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing. i think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. >> seth: not sure why trump would openly ask russia to spy on americans, but i'm sure he has his treasons. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] now, there's even been some speculation that trump might actively be colluding with russia, but the only thing that makes me think he isn't a secret russian spy is how obvious he is about it. he's like a guy interviewing for
a job at a bank who says, "you have a lot of money, and i want to steal it. and it would just be easier if i worked here." [ laughter ] seriously, just when you think this election can't get any crazier, trump goes onstage and tells russia to illegally hack into his opponent's e-mail server. you know what bernie supporters, i think you guys were right all along. bring that thing over here. there you go. [ laughter ] this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be back with more "late night," everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪

[ cheers and applause ] >> thank you, seth. appreciate it. >> seth: you know, being a host at "late night" is a demanding job, also father of a newborn now, and i haven't had a lot of time recently to spend with a good friend of mine, seth meyers. and even though i'm a positive person, i like to continue to work on myself, so one of the writers suggest that i say
positive affirmations in front of the mirror. now, what are affirmations, you might ask? they are positive things you say to yourself to provide emotional support and encouragement. my writers were kind enough to offer to write some for me. some of them are right over there. [ light laughter ] now, we've done this before, and i'm confident that this time, they will write affirmations that will make me feel really great about myself, as opposed to ones that make me feel really bad. [ laughter ] i have never seen these before. the first time i read these will be right here in front of you tonight. again, this is the first time i will read these positive affirmations that my writers have for me right here, right now.

people, and at least four of them are actually awake. [ laughter ] i grow more comfortable in my skin as i get older. maybe because i use all those lady creams on my face.

[ laughter ] ♪ i may not be the funniest person on tv, or the most handsome, or the most famous -- [ laughter ] it said, "flip over card."
i am love. i am light. i waited so long to have a child, his first word will be "grandpa." [ laughter ] i'm a young 42. you don't need money. you don't need fame. don't need no credit card to ride this train. [ laughter ] it's strong, and it's sudden, and it's cruel sometimes, but it might just save your life. that's the power of love. okay marty, now it's time to go back to the future. [ laughter ] stupid. [ laughter ] that was stupid. opportunity is around every corner. at least that's what fred armisen told me before he walked out of the studio three months ago. [ laughter ] ♪ i'm confident that no matter how hard my jokes bomb, at the end of the day, i get to go home to my baby son, and then kick his
ass at basketball. [ laughter ] i value criticism. i read everything written about me, and i want to tell all the internet commentators out there that you are right, i do look like ellen degeneres' older sister. [ laughter and applause ] ♪ i never give up. like when i can't find my penis in the shower. [ laughter ] i know it's time for "a closer look." [ laughter ] ♪ that was the last one.

[ laughter ] >> seth: that's wonderful. >> always thinking, seth. >> seth: way to make lemonade. so, this is -- because you also -- tina's not the only thick destroying things in your house, you have a moth problem. >> i have a bit of a moth problem. >> seth: okay. >> tiny moths, and i lifted under my mattress, and i saw these sacks underneath my bed where they have the babies that hatch. i know. i live alone. [ laughter ] and all of these moths. but i've been staying on top of it. i've been vacuuming. and i feel like i've been nipping it. and i hand -- last night, i was watching the democratic
convention thing, and a moth, like, a killer moth, like a large one flew right by my mouth. and i was like, "oh, my god. what is going on?" but do you have the picture of the taxidermy? >> seth: yeah. well, so, first of all, you had a taxidermied chipmunk in your house. >> yes, waffles. i named him, waffles. [ laughter ] >> seth: okay. >> a taxidermied chipmunk, a taxidermied squirrel named, winks. and a little bird name kensington. >> seth: oaky. >> and the moths ate all three of them. >> seth: okay. [ audience aws ] now, i will say because a taxidermy chipmunk without any moths is already a little scary. [ laughter ] but, what the moths did to this -- this is the most terrifying thing. [ laughter ] >> they're terrible. but here's the sad thing -- >> seth: there's the sad thing? >> this is the sad thing. i had my taxidermy displayed where i could enjoy it. and i swear, i looked at it every single day. and then i went to bed, and i woke up, and then it was in that condition. it's almost like they planned -- >> seth: they did it in one night? >> they did it in one night. >> seth: oh, my god. >> and i looked up, and i had a friend who borrowed some money, and he owed me a favor. so that was his first project to animal removal to get rid of that thing. >> seth: i feel like -- it feels
like the moths might work for the mob and are, like, trying to get you out of the house. >> may -- well, there is a thing you can buy, it comes in a can. my brother david, who lives in london, always is asking me to smuggle this over when i visit him. >> seth: uh-huh. >> because it's illegal in london 'cause it can cause cancer in moths. [ laughter ] and i don't want my house to -- i don't wanna smell like a mothball. >> seth: gotcha. oh, so, you won't do the can because -- >> i'm not, i mean, you know, i'm too young to smell like mothball. [ laughter ] i don't know what i'm gonna do. i don't know what i'm gonna do. >> seth: okay. but i really thought i nipped it. and then i saw that big -- that big one. >> seth: you'd have a perfect solution if you could just train tina to eat moths instead of chairs. >> no. i check her, too. they're not eating tina. >> seth: they want no interest in tina. >> yeah. but they like fur and feathers. i do have a duck named, randy. and they haven't gone near the duck. and i think 'cause it's older taxidermy. >> seth: oh, gotcha. >> i don't have a lot of taxidermy, well, i don't have any now. [ laughter ] i have a duck. >> seth: you have a duck. >> and that's it. yeah. >> seth: it's the summer. you are -- >> they say life is endless.
i mean, my god, life is endless. it's endless. [ laughter ] >> seth: it's endless? >> yeah. >> seth: that's your take on summer? >> yeah, they always say, "life is too short." i'm like, "are you kidding me? it's endless." [ laughter ] i haven't done anything this summer. >> seth: you haven't done anything? >> you can hire me for anything. >> seth: you're available? >> i'm available. >> seth: are you going to north carolina? you're from north carolina, yeah? >> yes, that's where i'm originally from. >> seth: and, so, are you gonna go back there, to north carolina? >> i'm gonna go in august. there's a tanning competition my family has every year. >> seth: okay. >> and we have -- >> seth: the whole parents and kids, everybody? >> yeah, everybody who's alive goes. [ laughter ] and we have -- it's called, "the miss -- contest." >> seth: okay. >> and so whoever gets the darkest tan gets the sash. >> seth: okay. >> yeah. >> seth: and there's an actual physical sash? >> yeah, there's sash every year that has the date on it. and then, let's say you were running, you would have to get in your bathing suit and turnaround and bend over and do this position so we can see all the nicks and crannies where your tan. >> seth: gotcha. >> you know? and then you talk about tanning and why you think you should wear the sash. >> seth: okay. and is it just about how dark you are? >> yeah. >> seth: or is it about coverage? like if you put on lotion bad and you got a spot that's red. does that matter?
>> no, no. you just have to be the darkest. >> seth: the darkest. have you ever won? >> no. and one year i even went to greece before it. and i still didn't win. my sister, gretchen, wins every year. >> seth: okay. she gets the darkest. >> seth: okay. >> she tans the best. >> seth: all right. there you go. >> but it's fun. >> seth: that does sound like -- >> i mean, i'm not going to win this year. i could have won last year. >> seth: really? what happened? what went wrong? >> i didn't go to the beach. i didn't end up going in august. it's so hot in august. >> seth: that's true. i also heard that you are looking -- a beach is a good place to for you to go. you're looking for sand? >> oh, yeah. well, this doctor told me if you fill a bag with sand, 10 pounds of sand, you lay it on your stomach, then it just kind of relaxes all of your muscles. >> seth: okay. >> you know. so i thought, "i'm going to do that." but i've been looking -- my summer is ridiculous. i've been looking everywhere to buy sand, and i have been everywhere. i even went to an aquarium shop, and they have, like, sand for, like -- what do you call those crabs? hermit crabs. >> seth: uh-huh. >> and things like that or, like, and reptiles or boas. but the way it's described on the bag, it seems like it's going to change, like, if you get the sand out, it's going to get heated or something, i don't know. >> seth: okay. >> it's so confusing. >> seth: you don't want lizard sand. >> i don't want lizard sand. >> seth: yeah. >> i went to the flower
district, couldn't find it. the hardware will only sell 50 pounds of sand. >> seth: okay. >> so then i went on ebay, thinking i could buy sand, but then i'm like, if i get beach sand is it gonna be full of crab eggs or something? >> seth: uh-huh. >> you know, like dirty. [ laughter ] where am i going to get sand? >> seth: why don't you buy the 50 pound bag of sand and just take out 10 pounds and put it in a different bag? >> i live in this tiny apartment. i'm not going to bring 50 pounds of sand in my apartment. [ laughter ] >> seth: you brought if a seven pound rabbit. >> oh, that's different. [ laughter ] i could, i thought i could stick a knife in the bag, and then, you know, if just cheated and went and stuck it in there and put a, you know, a little hefty bag underneath there. and you know, like -- >> seth: yeah. >> and stole it. >> seth: wait, you thought about stealing the sand? >> yeah, i did. [ laughter ] >> seth: don't take this the wrong way, i bet they'd catch you. >> you think so? >> seth: yeah. >> i think i can be pretty crafty. >> seth: really? >> i think so. >> seth: you have a god son? >> yes. and you have a child who is three months? >> seth: four months. >> oh, four months. >> seth: yeah. four months. yeah. >> okay, wow. >> seth: yeah, he's old now. >> he's tiny! >> seth: but he's a real little guy, yeah. >> wow. congratulations. >> seth: he's basically a ten pound bag of sand. i'll bring him over and lie him on your belly. [ laughter ] >> and his name is ashe? >> seth: ashe. yeah.
