♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers. tonight -- andy samberg star of "the power of the dog," actor jesse plemons. an all new "closer look. featuring the 8g band with jon epcar. ♪ [ cheers and applause and now, seth meyers >> seth: good evening. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night. we're so happy to have you all with us tonight. and now let's get to the news. president biden spoke from the white house yesterday about the economy and rising prices, and you can kind of tell things
aren't going great [ laughter ] top democrats have reportedly been pushing the white house to have president biden speak to the press more often and so are top republicans [ laughter ] white house press secretary jen psaki said on monday that president biden intends to run for re-election in 2024. okay, if the next election is between this guy - [ laughter ] and this guy - ♪ [ laughter ] we have to stop calling it "running" for president. [ laughter ] call it like carefully shuffling. [ laughter ] former president obama was nominated for a grammy yesterday. and this is for crazy, it was for best latin jazz album. [ laughter ] is there anything that guy can't do [ light laughter ] republican congressman jim jordan revealed in a new interview that he had the coronavirus over the summer, and refused to say whether he's received the vaccine well, refused to say is pretty big clue
nobody refuses to say when they do the right thing "did you pull all of those children out that burning building, sir? "i'd rather not say. [ laughter ] rescuing children is a personal decision." [ laughter ] iowa senator chuck grassley tweeted out a picture yesterday of his vacuum cleaner. he didn't mean to, he was just trying to call his daughter. [ laughter ] according to the latest numbers, the average cost for a ten-person thanksgiving dinner is $53, not including bail money. [ laughter ] finally, the hershey company offered a giant nine-inch, three pound reese's peanut butter cup this year that is meant to serve as a pie on thanksgiving perfect for anyone that wants to show their family they cared enough to stop at a 7-11 on the way. [ laughter ] and that was the monologue, everybody. oh, man, oh, man, we've got a great show for you tonight [ cheers and applause he is one of my nearest and dearest friends, even though he
is intensely cruel to my dog, frisbee. andy samberg will be here tonight. [ cheers and applause he's got a new show coming to peacock. it's called "baking it." also we have an incredible actor. you know him from "friday night lights," "fargo," and "breaking bad. what a triumvirate, what a hat trick of tv shows. his new film is called "the power of the dog." our friend jesse plemons will be joining me here in studio. [ cheers and applause before we get to all that, the committee investigating the january 6th insurrection has subpoenaed another round of trump allies as multiple investigations of trump and his inner circle intensify and attempt to take control of our for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause >> seth: guys, tomorrow is a big day. no it's not just thanksgiving. it's the deadline my pillow ceo mike lindell set for himself to file his supposedly blockbuster supreme court case proving definitively that there was fraud in the 2020 election
>> i cannot wait to drop this supreme court case the tuesday at 9:00 a.m. before thanksgiving, and the whole world's going to be watching all of this unfold over thanksgiving >> you are saying that on the tuesday before thanksgiving, which i think is four weeks away, you're going to drop a lawsuit -- so you can go back and have fistfights to family squabbles. lindell, you're a genius only you could have thought of this >> steve - >> the country's going to go back at -- your holidays are ruined again, okay >> and when i say "before thanksgiving," we are bringing the case to them before thanksgiving, everybody. getting all these states on board. we've got, right now, upwards of nine i want to get at least 25 on board. [ light laughter ] >> seth: upwards of nine already sounds like a problematically vague wording for a supreme court case "and how many states are on board, mr. lindell?" "upwards of nine." [ laughter ] "so ten? "there's about ten, for sure
that ballpark, yeah. "why won't you tell us the exact number?" "it's not important. just please make my friend president again. [ laughter ] and i'm sorry, steve bannon thinks americans need a lawsuit from mike lindell to have a reason to fight at thanksgiving? my uncle ron needs two drinks, and he turns into mike lindell [ laughter ] one minute he's telling aunt debbie she's his light, and the next minute he's screaming, "you pretend to be a loyal wife, but i know about the affairs." [ laughter ] and, again, i know lindell is from minnesota, and not chicago, but, uhh -- i don't care [ laughter ] still, good news for families trying to avoid conflict lindell has failed to file his lawsuit, as promised and he's blaming it on the republican national committee. lindell accused the rnc of calling state attorneys general and pressuring them not to sign the complaint. he also said he was flying to five different states to get attorneys general to sign the document holiday travel is stressful enough as it is. imagine being in a boarding area with this guy, who is definitely
going to stand up when group one is called no matter what group he's sitting in. [ laughter ] plus, you know he carries his ticket in some weird ziploc travel pouch he forgot how to open "it's tricky because you got to pull it while you squeeze it." [ laughter ] there are two things happening on parallel tracks right now in american politics. on the one hand, republicans like lindell are still spreading the big lie that the election was stolen, and making it easier to overturn future results they don't like and on the other hand, several major investigations of key trump allies who tried to steal the last election are getting more serious for example, the congressional committee investigating the january 6th insurrection has subpoenaed five more trump allies, including disgraced right wing conspiracy theorist alex jones, who always looks like he's trying to hulk out even though he wasn't exposed to gamma rays [ laughter ] and roger stone, the guy who famously showed up to trump's inauguration looking like an 18th century oil barron that makes his own meth at home [ laughter ] quick aside, we used that photo so many times over the years, i honestly can't remember which jokes we've made about it, and which ones we haven't. here's a bunch anyway.
this guy looks like willy wonka's mortician. [ laughter ] is quentin tarantino remaking "lincoln"? [ laughter ] uh, he looks like a fella who just made his first million in the zeppelin business. [ laughter ] dude looks likes he's trying to sneak into the met gala to sell cocaine. "hey, chalamet [ laughter ] chalamet care to partake in the devil's dandruff?" [ laughter ] now, you might remember that stone was already convicted as part of the russia investigation. but his sentence was commuted by trump, and he ended up right back in the middle of trump's inner circle, helping hatch their next scheme. >> stone was convicted of seven felony counts stemming from the russia investigation including obstruction of the investigation, lying to investigators, and witness tampering. that, then, only resulted in president trump commuting his sentence in july, 2020 just in time for stone to help plan the january 6th
insurrection stone appeared at multiple "stop the steal" events in the days leading up to the attack >> stone is part of this constellation of far right media personalities. perhaps more than anybody else, roger stone is fluent in trump, and he knows how to produce slogans and commentary that fit into his vernacular. >> seth: what does it mean to be fluent in trump? [ light laughter ] you only use words with one syllable you talk like a cab driver from queens or you know how to stretch a single sentence into a rambling hour-long monologue? could you imagine one of those french to english travel dictionaries, except it was trump to english [ laughter ] all right, let me translate. so trump said, "a man came up to me, tears in his eyes. he said, 'sir, you're bringing back america, sir. we're living in the golden age of america, sir. just like the golden age of television.' lucille ball, i love lucy, you love lucy, we all love lucy, don't we folks she ate all that chocolate, and got paid for it. what a deal. i said to my team, 'we need more chocolate eating jobs. and that's what we did we opened more chocolate factories under my administration than any previous administration in history. witch hunt." okay [ laughter ]
and that translates to, "i am sad inside." [ laughter ] so investigators are closing in on more trump allies the investigation hyas already subpoenaed former new york police commissioner, bernard kerik, a close ally of rudy guiliani who was part of a so called "command center" set up by trump cronies like steve bannon ahead of the january 6th insurrection where they hatched plans to steal the election from biden. >> the headquarters for some key figures in trump's effort to overturn the 2020 elction. rudy guiliani, steve bannon, former new york city police commissioner bernard kerik, and conservative lawyer john eastman holed up in washington's willard hotel. walking distance from the white house, in a suite of rooms they called the command center. >> seth: it's just fun to imagine rudy guiliani running a command center in a hotel room "let's get started bernie, you split up the free toiletries i call the tiny shampoo. steve, order me a cobb salad, but six rows of eggs they know how to do it." [ laughter ]
it's also important to remember these people only hang out with each other because there is no one else who will hang out with them [ laughter ] if bernie kerik had other options do you think he would still roll with rudy guiliani, who publicly implied a few months ago that they all partied with disgraced royal prince andrew? >> i told this to the queen of england. she said, "you did -- you did a wonderful job on september 11th, and therefore, i'm making you an honorary knight commander of the royal --" something or other i turned down a knighthood because if you took a knighthood, you had to lose your citizenship. i know prince andrew is very questionable now i never went out with him. ever never -- never had a drink with him. never was with a woman, or a young girl with him. ever, ever, ever one time i met him in my office, and one time when we had the party -- right, bernie? you were there
you weren't there? oh, [ bleep ]. [ laughter ] >> seth: "you weren't there, oh, now i remember bernie, you said, 'if anyone ever asked, i wasn't here. [ laughter ] and then you said, 'wink wink.'" [ light laughter ] also, say what you will about my impressions, but they're way better than rudy's [ laughter ] i mean is that -- is that what he thinks the queen sounds like? who does he think played her in "the crown"? al pacino? "oh, nothing makes me smile like a corgi running across a well manicured lawn low to the ground and fast like a rocket ship. let's get a round of crumpets out here [ laughter ] it is always crumpet o'clock at buckingham palace. [ laughter ] and, of couse, rudy's already facing his own criminal investigation for trying to cheat in the 2020 election before the results came in investigators are focusing on his attempts to dig up dirt on
joe biden and ukraine. and as you might recall, his home and office were raided by the feds earlier this year last night he was on newsmax and claimed that only trump cronies are targeted by the feds >> i have to get your reaction to the breaking news, these five new subpoenas from the quote unquote, january 6th committee of nancy pelosi. the idea that we've had roger stone subpoenaed, alex jones, three other individuals, add to that mark meadows and steve bannon. are we seeing the collapse of the rule of law at the highest levels in the united states, mr. mayor? >> yes, sebastian. we watched that all through the trump presidency i mean, the democrats handled themselves like fascists there were no constitutional rules. why is it that the only lawyers whose law offices get broken into are donald trump's lawyers? remember, they went and got my icloud account i'm a lawyer >> seth: all right, but not really [ laughter ] i mean, your law license was
suspended, and you lost every case you brought after the election the only thing you succeeded at doing was drumming up publicity for a landscaping company. [ laughter ] i mean, looks like he's shooting a local commercial for them. "come on down to four seasons total landscaping. our prices are so crazy you'll be screaming, 'why, god? [ laughter ] why?'" but, hey, at least he's not the kind of guy who puts his thumb on the front facing camera [ laughter ] more importantly, let's go back to this penetrating question >> why is it that the only lawyers whose law offices get broken into are donald trump's lawyer >> seth: hmm, yeah, why is it such a mystery [ light laughter ] it's like asking why the only rats who go viral are pizza rats [ laughter ] "what about all the other everyday working class rats? when is their time in the sun? [ laughter ] the command center, the lawsuits, the ukrainian scheme, all of it was part of the trump's team attempt to cheat in, or steal the election. and as part of that effort they produced memo after memo laying out a detailed plan for vice
president mike pence to reject the electoral college count. there were a bunch of memos from several trump lackeys. in fact, former trump national security advisor, michael flynn, even tried to get the pentagon involved in their attempted coup it wasn't just an impulse, or trump randomly lashing out they had a detailed plan, and a command center to pull it off. and believe me, i'm as shocked as you are that these misshapen potato chips had a plan. [ light laughter ] it's much easier to think of them as a bunch of easily distracted doofuses who get caught trying to steal a pen from a bank without realizing it's chained to the desk [ laughter ] but they did have a plan, and they came close to pulling it off. which means they're almost certainly going to try it again. except this time, they're trying to do it by changing the laws to make it easier and they have republican officials in states across the country helping them they've already started passing new voting laws in at least 17 states. and now they've landed on their next target, wisconsin >> in a stunning new piece of reporting in the "new york times," ron johnson and other republicans in wisconsin have now launched an all-out assault on their state's election system to ensure republicans have full control over its voting process. from that reporting, quote, "the
republican effort, broader and more forceful than that in any other state where allies of former president donald j. trump are trying to overhaul elections, takes direct aim at the bipartisan wisconsin elections commission." last month a report ordered by republican state legislators and performed by wisconsin's non-partisan legislative audit bureau found -- big surprise here -- no widespread fraud in the 2020 election. but the report did make dozens of recommendations for the election commission. and republicans pounced. >> seth: think about how insane that is. they conducted an audit that found no evidence of fraud, but made a bunch of recommendations anyway it's like if you went to the doctor for a physical, and he said, "all right, everything looks perfect. we'll take the leg off on monday." [ laughter ] not sure how many bones are in there, but it's got to be -- >> upwards of nine [ laughter ] >> seth: the callback. this is the single greatest existential threat to our democracy right now, and it's hanging over every aspect of our politics one party wants to take control so they can never lose power again.
from steve bannon to roger stone and rudy guiliani, it seems like everyone around trump was involved in the attempted coup and now that they're getting subpoenaed, they're saying - >> "oh [ bleep ]." [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause we'll be right back with andy samberg, everybody.

i'm sorry! she was like, "shut up, i made you! i made you!" and i was like, "okay, i'll do it, i'll do it, i'll do it." you know how amy is. >> seth: yeah, i mean, i would say if she has a catchphrase, it's "i made you." >> yeah, "i made you." [ laughter ] >> seth: you -- so the first episode is hanukkah themed was that your idea >> no. it was actually the show's idea and, you know, they came to me -- i think it was maybe amy's way of smoothing things over with me for yelling at me. >> seth: yeah, yeah. >> but it was interesting because she was like, "hey, you know, one of the first bakes we're going to have in the competition is going to be hanukkah themed. and i remember my response, i said, "your funeral! [ laughter ] you know, so - i mean, i immediately assumed they were -- everyone was just going to make cakes in the shape of the socks they were given for hanukkah >> seth: was that -- was that a big hanukkah gift for you? socks? >> oh yeah, i'd be like, "socks?" and they'd be like, "no, but these are special because they're fleece socks."
[ laughter ] and i'd be like, "great. >> seth: were you excited as a young man when you got fleece socks? >> i was stoked. i was like, "now i have something to wear with my tevas. >> seth: right [ laughter ] >> and you know? i have to say, seth -- >> seth: uh-huh. >> i wore tevas and fleece socks often in high school and a little in college. and a little out of college -- [ laughter ] and i got reamed for it, you know i got bagged on, dunked on, the gamut. then a couple years ago, all of a sudden it's like ironically cool to wear fleece socks with tevas. i see my man jonah strolling down the promenade being called a fashion icon for it. i don't know, i just fell like either i'm old, or i'm super old. [ laughter ] >> seth: now, it was lovely to see you with all those grannies. four grannies. are the four grannies always the judges >> they are, yeah. it's one of the main things i love about the show.
it's very warm and cozy. the grannies are the judges. even when they're being critical, they're very supportive it's for the holidays. it's a nice cozy, you know, warm blanket of a show and it's really, like, a family show, you know >> seth: yeah, and it's nice, so it's on peacock -- >> it's nice it's a family show, but it's on peacock, which i believe the title of the streamer, peacock, is actually tv-ma. [ laughter ] >> seth: how so? >> well, just, you know, because the word "peacock. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, but it's -- it's the bird >> like the bird >> seth: no. [ laughter ] >> not the bird. not the bird >> seth: no. do you think they should have chosen something else other than peacock? >> i mean, i heard it was between that and comcast nards [ laughter ] >> seth: they were going to call it comcast nards >> yeah, but i mean -- it was keeping in the tradition, because you probably don't know
this, but nbc actually stands for -- nards -- [ light laughter ] boobs -- and - crack, but not the drug. butt crack [ laughter ] >> seth: i fell like you maybe forgot halfway through with all those things >> it's possible >> seth: you said it real slow, like you were remembering. >> yeah, seth, it's hard fro me to tell. am i killing in the studio [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause is the timing right? >> seth: i think -- i have one issue. i feel like you made that up and can i tell you why i think you made that up >> please do >> seth: you're the only human being i met in the last 20 years who uses "nards. [ laughter ] >> right, right. [ laughter ] that's fair. >> seth: do you think nards is going to come back like fleece socks and tevas? >> with tevas? [ laughter ] >> seth: nards is going to be like what's cool kids call a guy

[ laughter ] >> but ultimately, cooler heads prevailed. [ laughter ] >> seth: you've always - >> i didn't say what i was doing in the bathroom. maybe i was checking my phone in the shower >> seth: you hate being alone in the bathroom, it should be noted. so i would imagine - >> true. >> seth: i'm not surprised you brought your phone >> well, thus "want to come with?" the most classic sketch ever to be on your show. >> seth: it was weird that you said "want to come with" and that there wasn't just an explosion of applause. [ laugher you want to explain real quick the sketch you wrote for "snl" called "want to come with? >> yeah, it was based on something i would do while we worked at "snl" on the writing floor -- on writers' night it was a long walk to the bathroom so i would ask people "want to come with? [ laughter ] so that i wasn't lonely on the walk
and subsequent whatever i did in there, you know. >> seth: my favorite -- the time it happened to me, which is the story i love telling, is you would come in to my office at like 3:00 in the morning and you'd say, "hey, i'm going to the bathroom, want to come with?" and i would say, "i don't want to come with." and you would close the door, and i had a frosted glass door so you could see the silhouette of the person outside it and you would be like "all right. and you's close the door and you would just stay there. [ laughter ] >> and then you'd eventually go "i can see you." and i'd go "want to come with? [ laughter ] >> seth: "you want to come with?" this was also -- talk about hit characters you've done you came on our show and you've left this as a - >> right >> seth: this was a story about -- there was a story, a true story about mummies some mummies were disturbed. you came on the show as a mummy who was upset they got disturbed because in -- it the disturbing, in the act of being disturbed -- >> yeah. >> seth: that happened >> yeah. okay well, i can see where you're going with this. and it's click bait, but fine.
okay just -- we can cut to a close. i'll do it [ laughter ] i'll do it "my doink fell off!" [ laughter ] right? that's what everyone wanted, the catchphrase. >> seth: yeah. they want it you gave them the catchphrase. we haven't -- i do -- whenever you're on, i do want to give you the opportunity to maybe walk back some of the crueler things you've said about my dog frisbee. you know, i feel like as - you know, again, because you are a parent now i feel like you're a more empathetic person. you probably know how hurtful it's been that you said those things >> right, no but i will say - [ laughter ] i do have a little hot goss to share. >> seth: hot goss? >> yeah, and it's -- you're not going to like it [ light laughter ] but i do feel like your show is a good place to spill it >> seth: okay. >> the proverbial tea. so, it's funny you bring up frisbee. because, this past week, frisbee was actually spotted canoodling with the mummy whose doink fell off. [ laughter ]
yeah it's pretty crazy. they're instagram official that's them sharing a milkshake. i assume post coital [ laughter ] probably just banging into each other. i think there's some more -- yeah, there's another one in the park they were having a picnic. probably just had sex together probably just slamming into each other. there on the couch, post coital. frisbee probably just got reamed i mean, i guess his doink fell back on? [ light laughter ] this is probably right after some oral. [ laughter ] the doink probably fell back on. or they might be pegging, seth i don't know they might be pegging. [ laughter ] it could be anything the point is, frisbee is being sexually satisfied, finally. no thanks to you and -- [ laughter ] and the thing that i got to say seth - the thing i love the most about it all is, if you look at your desk, stefon was right there he was right there and frisbee chose correctly. frisbee chose the correct choice, okay
further proving my point that the mummy whose doink fell off is a better and more enduring character than stefon. i've always said that, and you know that. >> seth: i do know this. i've never met anyone who, the way you burned me, was playing out a scenario where you had a lot of sex with my dog [ laughter ] >> look. i assume this is crushing. and it's great television, you know >> seth: last time i saw you was -- was emotional to some degree it's always nice to see you but we were here with the whole "brooklyn nine-nine" cast. it was the night the finale ended. i certainly enjoyed having you guys all here. i hope you enjoyed it as well. >> it was great. it was so much fun and you know, it's been weird not shooting the show anymore. i've had a lot more free time. >> seth: uh-huh. >> and i would say i spend most of my time now working on development. >> seth: uh-huh. that's a big l.a. thing. >> developing a lot of projects. >> seth: yeah. >> i like to say i haven't developed as much since my sophomore year of high school.
[ laughter ] when my neck grew three feet and the rest of my body stayed the same size. and i looked like david spade's character from "emperor's new groove," turning into a llama. [ laughter ] everybody remembers that, right? >> seth: an "emperor's new groove" ref. >> but yeah, i mean, it's -- this is the time to talk about it >> seth: it is >> but i will say i've been developing some stuff. not just like movies and tv and stuff. i developed a couple ideas for your show. >> seth: you did >> yeah. and i thought maybe i could try them out if you don't mind >> seth: of course >> okay, like, you know how you do "a closer look" >> seth: i do. >> yeah. so i was thinking that, um -- i could do one it'd be -- you kind of do like a deep dive in politics. but i would do more of like a macro view of it >> seth: okay. >> in a new segment that i like to call "a further look. ♪ >> okay. [ laughter ] okay, so people in politics are
