tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC May 5, 2018 12:37am-1:38am PDT
♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- chris evans, comedy duo, desus & mero, music from lily allen, featuring the 8g band with sarah tomek. ♪ ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening, everybody. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how are we all doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] that is fantastic to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. french president emanuel macron traveled to the white house today for president trump's first ever state visit. unfortunately, trump thinks a state visit is when someone
visits you and you show them all the states you won. [ laughter ] ohio, no one expected ohio. president trump welcomed french president emanuel macron to the white house at 5:15 this evening. and they are still shaking hands. [ laughter ] that's not a gif. that's how long that took. according to cnn, president trump and first lady melania will gift french president macron and his wife a photo album upon their departure. said melania, hey, i'm just happy to get rid of it. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] do whatever you want with it. sources recently told axios that during a phone call last year president trump asked israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu if he actually cares about peace, followed by, yeah, totally, me
too, i was just checking. [ laughter ] duchess of cambridge kate middleton gave birth to a baby boy today. he was -- yeah, give it up. [ cheers and applause ] he was born eight pounds, which works out to $11.15. [ laughter ] that's a dumb -- that's a dumb joke about the miracle of life. [ light laughter ] white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders said today that president trump has no intention of firing special counsel robert mueller. instead, trump's plan is to be so guilty of so many things that mueller just works himself to death. [ laughter ] two republican colorado lawmakers have introduced a bill that would punish teachers with jail time if they go on strike. hey, these are public schoolteachers. you can't scare them with jail. [ laughter ] so wait, no kids and there's a place to lie down?
sign me up. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] it's a deal. compared to what they're usually doing, it's a deal. after being bitten by a shark last week, a colorado man achieved a rare distinction of being attacked by a shark, bear, and rattlesnake all within the last four years. or as it was reported to the man, you're not allowed back at the zoo. [ laughter ] and finally, thanks to newly developed technology, we here at "late night" now have -- this is very exciting. we now have the ability to record the tiny voice that is inside donald trump's head. and you might be surprised to know that like everyone's inner voice, donald trump's is filled with paralyzing fear and self-doubt. so here it is, the tiny voice in the back of donald trump's head. ♪ >> thank you. >> hey, donald, it's the tiny voice in your head again.
and, are you thinking what i'm thinking? because it really seems like your wife doesn't love you. you know why i think that? because people who are in love do not scowl for all 24 hours of the day. these people taking pictures are going to crack their iphone screens with how angry she looks all the time. hey, what was the last real conversation you two had anyway? because the last thing i remember is election night when she turned to you and said, are you happy now? >> and that's why i'm here today. >> hey, by the way, who is this guy talking right now? >> testament -- >> and who is this woman who is standing next to your wife? what is going on? >> presidency -- >> you have no idea where you are right now, do you? no idea at all. oh boy. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: we have a fantastic show for you tonight. he's the star of the upcoming "avengers: infinity war" as well as "lobby hero" on broadway. chris evans is joining us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] they are the hosts of their very
funny self-titled show on viceland, "desus and mero" are back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] and we're going to have music from the fantastic lily allen. so you're here on a great night. [ cheers and applause ] before we get to all that, president trump has once again been freaking out on twitter as the scandals around him pile up from his personal attorney michael cohen to his epa administrator scott pruitt. for more on this it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: as trump's white house contends with mounting criminal and ethics investigations, it's worth asking who is actually benefitting from this presidency? and so far there's at least one very clear winner, wall street. now if you remember, during the campaign trump cast himself as a populist who would stand up to the big banks in contrast to hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton represents insiders. she represents the donors, the politicians, the big banks. when you're like the clintons getting 60 -- think of this one.
getting $69 million in political contributions from wall street and big banks. politicians meet in secret with the big banks, collect massive sums of money, then betray the american worker, which is you and me and sort of all of us. we're all workers. >> seth: no, no. [ laughter ] you are -- you're many things. you are not a worker. [ laughter ] no one would call you a worker. taking three strokes to get out of a sand trap doesn't count as work. the closest you ever come to work is asking how do you work this when your iphone auto locks. [ laughter ] "where is it?" that was obviously absurd at the time that trump claimed he wouldn't be a friend to big banks. but on friday we got a clearer picture of just how much of a gift his presidency has been to wall street when it was reported for the first time how much money the nation's largest banks have made from trump's corporate tax cuts. >> it was a good first quarter for the six biggest wall street
banks. they posted record profits, thanks to president trump's tax overhaul. all told, they saved an estimated $3.5 billion in taxes the first three months of this year. >> seth: 3.5 billion in three months. trump made the banks so much money, they let him ride the bull. [ laughter ] "i stayed on for the whole eight seconds, which they say has never happened before. so that's really -- [ cheers and applause ] that's really something, because he was bucking and bronking." and wall street isn't the only beneficiary of trump's presidency. there's also the fossil fuel industry which is getting everything it wants out of trump's head of the environmental protection agency, scott pruitt. pruitt has been plagued by a series of scandals involving the abuse of taxpayer funds. the "new york times" reported that on top of everything else, pruitt is now under investigation for using an epa security detail for personal trips to the rose bowl, disneyland, and basketball games, bringing the number of investigations into pruitt's use of taxpayer money and possible ethics violations to ten.
he's under ten different investigations. pruitt's under so many investigations, he gets a six-inch sub free of charge. [ laughter ] and over the weekend, the "new york times" uncovered even more potential corruption. 2003, pruitt bought a house near the oklahoma state capital from a lobbyist using a shell company. the shell company was registered to a business partner and law school friend who now holds a top political job at the epa. and the mortgage was issued by a local bank that was led by another business associate of pruitt's, who is now one of pruitt's top aids at the epa. the only funny thing is if pruitt wanted to work at the epa, and he rewarded others with jobs at the epa, he must have thought the epa was a different thing. was he like, "gentlemen, welcome to the epa. we fly first class, pay no rent, and no one pays any attention." and then like a day later the government says, you're under ten investigations, ass[ bleep ]. now all of trump's various scandals are obviously weighing on a republican party that is
now facing a potential wave election in november. and they're causing tensions within the party too. take outgoing tennessee senator bob corker, a frequent trump critic who has praised the democratic candidate to replace him in the senate, governor phil bredesen. last week trump tweeted in support of the republican candidate in the race, marsha blackburn. but on sunday, when corker was asked about that race, he could barely muster a kind word about blackburn. his own party's nominee in a very awkward interview. >> they were asking me about governor bredesen. he is my friend. i'm not going to campaign against him, but i am supporting our nominee. >> can you tell me why republican marsha blackburn is better to represent your state in tennessee and take your seat than phil bredesen? >> well i think most people in our state -- it is a red state -- will focus on the first vote she makes. and that's the vote to elect the majority leader. >> senator, that's not a ringing endorsement of marsha blackburn to say that she should be elected just because she's going
to vote for mitch mcconnell. >> well, um -- you know, i'm supporting the nominee. >> seth: wow. i -- [ light laughter ] i would not want bob corker to write my letter of recommendation. "if you hire seth meyers, i can promise that he will be one of your employees." [ laughter and applause ] and corker -- corker isn't the only republican who seems to be distancing himself from trump. this weekend cnn asked white house councilor kellyanne conway about her husband, george conway, a respected lawyer who's been tweeting critical things about trump for months. and the interview quickly went off the rails. >> what is up with your husband's tweets? your husband is a very well respected lawyer and he has been sending some tweets that have been critical of the administration. >> it's fascinating to me that cnn would go there, but it's very good for the whole world to have just witnessed that it's now -- >> i would -- >> excuse me -- that it's now
fair game what people's -- how people's spouses and significant others may differ. >> my point is that we don't often see -- in fact, i don't remember the last time we saw somebody working for the president in a high profile position when their spouse is saying critical things about them. that is all. that is all. >> that, a, is not true. there are other family members of people who work at the white house who certainly don't support the president privately and publicly. [ laughter ] >> seth: first of all, we know. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] second of all, think about how dumb that argument is. so what if my husband hates trump? lots of people do! [ laughter ] it's no wonder some republicans are running for the exits and distancing themselves from the president as trump threatens to drag them down in november. statistically speaking, anyone who gets too close to trump, has a good chance of being raided by the fbi. first the fbi raided trump's former campaign chairman,
paul manafort. then the fbi raided his personal attorney michael cohen. at this point, even the kid who mowed the white house lawn is worried the fbi is going to kick his door in. "don't worry, i'll pardon you." [ laughter ] of course cohen is the one who orchestrated trump's hush payment to stormy daniels through a shell company and is now being investigated for bank fraud, wire fraud, and federal campaign finance violations. now, with the cohen investigation intensifying, trump and his allies are out in public doing what any innocent person would do, freaking out about whether cohen is going to flip. >> will the fixer flip? >> president getting a blunt warning from one of his long time lawyers who says michael cohen might flip on him. >> president trump's lawyers -- his former lawyers are concerned that michael cohen could flip, even though this is a guy who said he would take a bullet for president trump. >> cohen has said he'd take a bullet for trump, well but would he do 15 years for him. >> i spent some time with michael today. michael's words to me, he's loyal. he says i'd rather jump out of a building than turn on donald trump.
>> seth: think about how crazy this is. michael cohen isn't saying trump is innocent. he's saying, i would never rat him out. [ light laughter ] it's just taken for granted that trump did something illegal. like if your wife asked your best friend about your guys weekend at vegas and he said, hey. bros before hoes. [ laughter ] but trump's closest allies apparently aren't so sure cohen will stand by trump. trump's longtime attorney and personal friend jay goldberg publicly warned last week that cohen would turn on trump. goldberg to the "wall street journal" that he spoke to trump by phone and told him, mike will never stand up for you. goldberg added that even hardened organized crime figures flip under pressure from the government. quote, "the mob was broken by sammy the bull gravano caving in out of the prospect of a jail sentence. and if sammy the bull flipped, you know michael the bull [ bleep ] definitely will. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] after -- after the "new york times" published an article this weekend filled with former trump associates similarly expressing concern that cohen would turn on
the president because of how badly trump has treated him, trump himself jumped into the fray. and again rather than proclaim his own innocence, he insisted that cohen would never betray him. >> the president writes this. the "new york times" and a third rate reporter named maggie haberman, known as a crooked h flunky, who i don't speak to and have nothing to do with are going out of their way to destroy michael cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will flip. they use nonexistent sources and a drunk drugged up loser who hates michael, a fine person with a wonderful family. michael is a businessman for his own account/lawyer who i've always liked and respected. most people will flip if the government lets them out of trouble, even if it means lying or making up stories. >> seth: of course, trump assumes most people would lie to get out of trouble because he's always lying to get out of trouble. [ light laughter ] if the feds put pressure on him, there's a good chance he'll flip on himself. [ laughter ] "i'm not the real donald trump, but i'll tell you where you can find him. he's on the lawn pushing a mower.
he's about yay high. oh, he'll say he's a kid, but he's a liar."

>> seth: welcome back. >> thanks, man. >> seth: congratulations on your broadway debut. >> thanks, man. >> seth: this is -- this would not be that surprising for people you've known your whole life. you were -- you did a lot of theater growing up. >> yeah, yeah, big, big theater kid. >> seth: did you do any of the big plays? >> name one. i probably did it, yeah. >> seth: "west side story?" >> i was action. >> seth: wow. so this is not -- and how do you feel? how's the work of doing a play compared to doing a movie? >> compared to doing a movie, i mean, well -- you know, a lot of movies, you don't always get rehearsal time. sometimes you -- you, you know, shake an actor's hand and you're doing a scene with him. so with a play there's a lot more rehearsal time, a lot more prep. it's -- i don't know. it's a lot nicer. that's why i wanted to do it. just to kind of feel a different way in to what i do. >> seth: is it exhausting? >> it is. i mean, everyone that i talked to, a lot of my actor buddies were like, "ah you got your whole days free, it's only two hours at the theater." but it's two hours. it's such a focused two hours. you leave the theater and you're spent. you just want to go back to bed. >> seth: i want to ask about
your mustache. [ laughter ] >> i'm surprised you got a couple of questions. >> seth: i know. why do i make you think it's the only reason i wanted you here? >> i have a mustache. let's just get it out there. >> seth: we wanted -- we tried to book your mustache. [ light laughter ] they said the only way it could come was with you. >> very choosey, yeah. >> seth: but i noticed as i was home with the playbook, you didn't have it here. was this a late decision? >> no. maybe i shouldn't be saying this. so when i was filming, we were filming "avengers" in atlanta last year. and they said, "well, they want to come and do a photo shoot for the play." and i said, "well, i'm not going to look the way i want to look." and they said, "ah, it doesn't matter." it's not like -- i don't know. i guess that's the way it is. it's okay if the photos look different from how you look. and i said, i'm going to look very different. i know it's just a mustache but it changes my whole face. [ light laughter ] >> seth: we were talking backstage. it does change your whole face, which might be helpful for being recognized. has it been easier to walk around with it? >> oh yeah. i can look people dead in their eyes. [ laughter ] not only do they not recognize me, you get some strange -- you get a little like, you got like mustache profile.
>> seth: this mustache and this haircut, i feel like, gives us a lot of back story about who you are. [ light laughter ] >> now what would i be? it's either a cop or? what else would i be? >> seth: a guy who tried to be a cop and failed the test and is super mad about it. [ laughter ] like, you're hoping for cop. >> see, i was going to say something along the lines of porn. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: yeah. >> and i always thinks so -- but it's so strange. that's the typical response. >> seth: the funny thing -- and it's strange those two things live on the same street. [ light laughter ] how is it, like cop, porn actor? >> seth: yeah. >> like those are -- >> seth: and then, and when a cop shows up in a porno it's like a perfect -- that's when it's like, yeah. >> nailed it. [ light laughter ] >> seth: the weird thing is steve rogers, captain america, of course, like this looks way more like most steve rogers, i think. [ laughter ] like most guys named steve rogers look like this. >> look like this guy. [ laughter ] >> seth: i want to show -- i know it's hard for all of you guys who are in these big movies. you can't tell me anything about it. this is spoiler city. >> oh yeah. i got nothing. >> seth: 64 characters in this film. >> yeah. >> seth: let's show a clip and see if i can get any
information. >> give it a shot. >> when you said we were going to open wakanda to the rest of the world, this is not what i imagined. >> and what did you imagine? >> the olympics. even a starbucks. ♪ [ jet engine ] >> should we bow? >> yeah. he's a king. >> seems like i'm always thanking you for something. >> what are you doing? >> we don't do that here. [ laughter ] >> seth: all right. i don't know much about it. [ cheers and applause ] >> i have one line in the clip. [ laughter ] like this is me when you come to a thing like this, you bring something to showcase, whatever. >> seth: yeah. >> but they sent me the clip. and i was like, "is this what i'm bringing to seth meyers?" 'cause everything i'm in -- >> seth: yeah. >> you know, it's some form of a
spoiler. >> seth: it gives something away. so you have one. and every talk show you're like, "keep an eye on the way i walk off the plane. [ light laughter ] i made a very interesting choice in my de-planeing. >> a lot of preparation. >> seth: you -- obviously, you play captain america. you get a lot of action figures. this one -- they sent us a bunch. this one's my favorite. [ laughter and applause ] >> god. >> seth: because of this. ready? have you seen this yet? >> no. >> seth: sorry. hold on. [ light laughter ] wait. it changed expressions. [ laughter ] oh, it's like the -- >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: happy. >> yeah. >> seth: medium. >> wait. what was the middle expression? >> seth: wait, i want to -- i've got a plan here. [ light laughter ] >> okay. he's defacing my character. >> seth: well, let's see you feel -- all right, there we go. how would you describe it? this is angry. right? >> yeah, angry. >> seth: okay, there we go. that's happy. >> right. >> seth: that's mustache. [ laughter ] that's porn star guy. [ light laughter ] >> oh, he looks -- >> seth: this guy, he's very ready to go.
and how did it go afterwards? he's always angry. [ light laughter ] it didn't go well. oh, now he's better. >> right. >> seth: hey, your brother is here. >> yeah, he is. >> seth: when we come back, he's going to join us. and i'm very excited to talk to the evans brothers at the same time. so stick around.
