her directorial debut with "wine country," which is in select theaters now and available to stream beginning friday on netflix. amy poehler is here, everybody [ cheers and applause the one, the only. and we have a surplus of legends for you tonight. because our other guest is a world-renowned psychosexual therapist and the subject the new documentary, "ask dr. ruth," which is in select theaters now and available on hulu beginning june 1st dr. ruth westheimer is here. [ cheers and applause so my goodness, my goodness, you are here on a good one before we get to our guests, the president is lying about the mueller report as his son don, jr. is facing a congressional subpoena for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause >> seth: last night, president trump held a rally in florida where he once again lied about special counsel robert mueller's report, which established that trump's campaign had links to russia and
benefited from russian interference in the election, and that trump repeatedly tried to obstruct the investigation. remember i mean every time we talk about this story, i have to restate those basic facts, facts that would, in a sane world, dominate the political landscape for months if not years. because everyone keeps forgetting them. and i'm not blaming anyone it's just too much keeps happening. while we were talking about the mueller report, we found out that trump lost over a billion dollars in 10 years. this [ bleep ] is distracting. [ laughter ] it's like going to book club where everyone read a different book, they all talk at the same time, and instead of rose, people do uncut cocaine while skrillex plays [ laughter ] we can't focus [ applause ] but the report was incredibly damning for trump. for one thing -- for one thing, the report was 448 pages if you went to a parent-teacher conference and the teacher said, "let me get your son's file," and it was 448 pages, that kid's going to military school [ laughter ] but trump's been lying about it, and he did so again last night when he claimed the report
exonerated him and he also claimed that if he had investigated anyone in the crowd for two years, he could have found crimes in their backgrounds, too >> did you see what just happened, by the way no collusion [ cheers and applause no obstruction, no anything. two years on a witch hunt. i could have gotten anybody in this audience, i could have found something on you >> seth: wow, that is an interesting new political strategy [ laughter ] accusing your own supporters of being criminals. he should start calling people out like an insult comic "check out that lady you telling me you've never passed a bad check look at her. [ laughter ] big old fraud face." for obvious reasons, trump wants to move on from the mueller report as quickly as possible, which is why he's waging a war on congress to stop them from reading the full un-redacted report and all the underlying evidence trump is also refusing to hand over documents and telling
former aides to defy subpoenas he is fundamentally lawless, which is not surprising, because the guy has spent his whole life getting away with stuff. if you left work every friday early to go golfing with kid rock, your boss would be like, "you're fired. and also, "kid rock plays golf?" [ laughter ] seems like a bowling guy in fact, at his rally last night, trump referenced a tweet he had retweeted suggesting that he should get two more years added on to his presidency, and in the process of attacking the media, doubled down on the joke. >> they are a bunch of fakers. there's no question about it but you know, in six years, they are all going to be out of business, folks. [ cheers and applause they are all going to be out of business now, if we want to drive them crazy, i'll say "in 10 years," they'll go crazy see, he is a despot. he is a despot well, 10 or 14 let's see. whatever we like, right? watch. there will be headlines tomorrow
"donald trump wants to break constitution." >> seth: you don't get credit for predicting headlines that you created. [ laughter ] you can't rob a liquor store and then say, "watch the media tomorrow will say, 'oh, he robbed a liquor store! [ laughter ] he had a gun he was waving it around.'" [ applause ] the mueller report -- it just came out three weeks ago and trump already wants to cover it up and move on in fact, trump is now citing executive privilege to block the release of the full, un-redacted report and all the underlying evidence and yet, he also keeps claiming that the report he doesn't want anyone to see exonerates him and he did it again during an event at the white house this afternoon. >> the report comes back, it's perfect. it's beautiful there's no collusion nobody even talks about collusion. do you know i haven't heard the word "russia" in a long time there's no more talk about russia what happened to russia? the russian witch hunt they don't talk about it because it was so on collusion, which, by the way, is by far -- that's the big deal.
'cause it was all about russia so i haven't heard the word "russia. they don't use the word "russia" anymore. >> seth: just because you don't hear the word "russia," doesn't mean no one else uses it for one thing, all you watch is fox news where i'm pretty sure they pretend russia doesn't even exist. when they show a map of europe and asia, they replace russia with a graphic that says, "what about hillary's e-mails? [ laughter ] and yet no matter -- [ applause ] no matter how much trump would like to move on, the investigation is very much not over in fact, we just found out yesterday that the senate intelligence committee, whose chairman is a republican, had subpoenaed donald trump, jr. to come back in and testify again about some of the details in the mueller report and speaking to reporters today, trump made clear he was not happy about that >> i was very surprised to see my son -- my son is a very good person, works very hard. the last thing he needs is washington, d.c. i think he'd rather not ever be involved i remember he said to me a long time ago when i was thinking about running, "dad, if i can
help, let me know. it's not my expertise. >> seth: here's my question. what is his expertise? [ light laughter ] because it's definitely not business, politics, speaking, spelling, writing or standing. i mean, look at this [ laughter ] why -- [ applause ] why does this whole family stand like a bunch of weirdos? don, jr. looks likes he's recording you with a secret mic strapped to his chest. [ laughter ] "could you say that a little louder and closer to my nipples [ laughter ] so the meeting did take place? [ laughter ] so trump and his son are both mad about the subpoena in fact, cnn reported that one option trump, jr. is considering in response to the subpoena is to invoke his fifth amendment rights and another is just not to appear at all and if that happens, one democratic senator said they should enforce the subpoena by any means necessary. >> if donald trump, jr. defies
the subpoena, he ought to be jailed >> seth: wow, i do not think don, jr. would fare well in jail i mean for one thing, can you imagine his hair with only prison shampoo [ laughter ] so we just got the mueller report three weeks ago and we're still waiting for the full un-redacted version as well as all the underlying evidence now is when the congressional response should start, not stop. and yet, republicans want to declare the whole thing over and move on as quickly as possible >> robert mueller's witch hunt found nothing. and they were trying mueller is done. it's over. >> it's not even worth talking about anymore. i'm done with it >> i'm not going to do anymore enough already it's over. >> the special counsel's finding is clear case closed. case closed. [ laughter ] >> seth: it's really funny when the least interesting man in the world takes that long a dramatic pause. [ laughter ] he sounds like a ghost drifting away in a graveyard.
"hi -- ho." [ laughter ] mcconnell also said in his speech that he wanted to finally end discussion of the russia investigation once and for all >> that's what i want to discuss this morning -- russia's interference in american elections, the work of the special counsel and the attorney general, and how we can finally end this groundhog day spectacle. >> seth: this isn't groundhog day. every week we find out something new. if anything, we have too much information. following the latest developments in the russia investigation is like trying to piece together the plot lines of the last 20 marvel movies. "okay, so that guy told that guy to fire that guy but he said no and told that other guy he was going to quit so he wouldn't go to jail, like that other guy who shared polling data with that guy or that one lawyer who was lying about that other lawyer's deal
with that other guy. and despite all this, you're telling me paul rudd hasn't aged a day this whole time? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause the evidence is plain as day it's right in front of us. in fact, this week hundreds of former prosecutors signed a letter saying trump would have been indicted if he weren't the president. the letter is a nuanced, in-depth legal argument, but it can basically be summed up in two words -- >> case closed case closed. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause we'll be right back with amy poehler, everybody [ cheers and applause ♪ >> announcer: for more of seth's "closer looks," be sure to subscribe to "late night" on youtube.

deny the holocaust, and i thought if they look at my story and go and see the film. and it happened and then there are people who have what is called "holocaust fatigue. they don't talk about it anymore. we talked about it enough. i don't deal in politics, not like you i just watched you [ light laughter ] however, these days i do stand up and i say how upset i am when i see children being separated from parents, because that was my story if my parents had not sent me to switzerland, i wouldn't be alive. i would be in auschwitz. so we now have an exhibit. i would like to invite you to come, at the museum of jewish heritage, a living memorial to the holocaust. it's called "auschwitz not far away --" uh, "not long ago." not "far away. so i certainly have to stand up
and say with all of the things that are happening now, it's not just anti-semitism, it's anti-muslims, it's anti-church it's a lot of things we have to stand up and be counted. even you comedians, i believe that you should entertain, but you also should stand up to be counted for serious things >> seth: well i -- [ cheers and applause -- can't tell you what a wonderful service -- >> i want to tell you something, in the jewish tradition, it says that, "a lesson taught with humor is a lesson retained." so you people are performing an important service, because by your laughing, by her talking about the cell phone that was in her bag -- >> amy: it was in my bag [ laughter ] >> i think that's a good point by saying, take some time out and laugh a little and listen to some music >> seth: all sounds good to me
