12:38 am
that ever gone wrong for nbc? [ laughter ] that's right. it's election night and "late night" can now project that bourbon has defeated xanax. teuz h beat democratic candidate beto o'rourke. do you know what that means? no, no, don't smile! no! [ applause ]e according to "new york times," president trump hosted a small reception with his friends tonight to watch the election results. fr 2016. remember that night? what a great night. they said i coun't do it and i -- according to reports, voters in georgia had to wait hours in line to ct their ballots after it was discovered
12:39 am
the power cords were not provided for voting machines. in a primarily african-american neighbhood. wow, i knew brian kemp would try bto stripck people of the power to vote but i didn't know he would literally take away their power to vote. ivanka trump tweeted a video today encouraging people to vote saying, don't let the rain stop you. and democratic voters responded -- ♪ "people" magazine has named idris elba as the sexiest man alive. i'm happy to annoue that i was voted also alive. [ cheers and applause ] no small thing.
12:40 am
finally, democrats won bac control of the house of representatives tonight for the first time in eight years, putting president trump's agenda -- [ cheers and applause ] putting president trump's agenda in serus danger. for more on this, it is time for "a closer look." well, cable news was unanimous. it was a blue wave. when you look at what's going h one tonight, this is not a blue wave. >> so we haven't seen the blue wave? >> there is not a blue wave forming. >> this is not a blue wave. >> it is n blue wave. >> so cable news was not sure if it was alue wave. but we hear can confidently say it was at least a blue ripple. but hey! if you've been in the desert for two ye a little splash of water feels like a damn tsunami. so come on democrats! give me some good news or i'll
12:41 am
have to drink this eire bottle of whiskey. >> nbc news is predicting the democrats will control the house ofs.representati >> seth: yeah, i did it anyway! because that's thebo thing alcohol. it works for good or bad news. that's right. the democrats are projectedtao control of the house for the first time in eight years even though they lost the senate. that's because the house and senate maps were vernt diffe as cbs explained. >> it looks like we have races two planets. planet senate and planet >> seth: that's right. the senate is a different plan chet explains why ted cruz looks like he burst out of someone's chest. tonight was a crazy frenetic night. things were so crazy, steve kornacki was wearing three different mike packs all at once. i knew he was busy but i didn't
12:42 am
know he was on three different networks at th tsame time. results were all over the place. to give you an idea how crazy it was, beto o'roarke lost in texas while heidi height kamp los in north dakota. and in colorado we sawhe first openly gay man to be elected governor. and kim davis, the kentucky clerk whoue refused to i marriage licenses lost her re-election bid. and fun fact,oi her was a gay wedding cake. now here' the thing. democrats winning back control f the house was a huge development for a number of reasons. it will stop republicans from repealing obamacare, and it will allow democrats to protect the russia investigation and put democrats in charge of house committees which gives them a huge new power. >> if democrats do take house, president trump will wake up weesday morning to a very
12:43 am
different political scenario. here on the hill, they are going to investigate this president and his administration thoroughly, putting it und intense microscope. likely investigating everything from his. at a returns to could thnflict interest to collion. >> even when a house has only one house in congress, that can have a big impact. once they're controlling the house in congress, they get to nduct oversight. they have subpoena power to help them do that. >> seth:gh that's democrats now have subpoena power. if you don't believe me, trump was jus photographed trying to sneak 20 years of tax returns out of the white house. right now he is at an office max in washington, d.c. do you have a shredder? i just want to borrow it. i can't afford to buy it. democrats are vindicate in their predictions that they would win back the house. the two opposing messages couldn't be more different. democrats' closing message was
12:44 am
primarily about healtcare. trump on the other hand tried scare people with racist conspiracy their business the migrant caravan headed toward the southern border. the message was basically this. >> you are gng to die. advisers rump's pleaded with him about something else. he admitted he found t subject boring. >> what job numbers we had today. did you hear? did yohear? we'll go into that. they all say, speak with they. econ speak about the economy. well, we have the greatest economy in the history of our country. but sometimes it's not as exciting to talk about the economy, right? seth: did you hear? if not too, bad, because i'm not going to tell you. that's the president sayinghe economy is boring. dude, thes economy your number one job. like getting in an uber and say sometit's not exciting to
12:45 am
keep your eyes on the road. though he's right. talking about the economy isn't as exciting. edo you know who could h told you that? barack obama. he rescued us from one of the worst financial collapses in history and every time he tried to talk about it, it was such a snooze fest, some heckler in the ngck would say this is bo show us your birth certificate. trump tried a different tactic. campaigning with fox news hosts. head of his final rally in missouri lastnight, he announced that sean hannity would be joing him on stage which is weird since fox continues to insist that it is not an arm. he said to be clear,t i will be on stage campaigning with the president. got it. >> seth: se-- >> sean hannity, come on up. sean hannity.
12:46 am
>> by the way,ll those people in the back are fake news. mr. president, did i an opening monologue today and noticed idea would you invite me up here. >> seth: no idea? you ran up on stage like a contestant on "the price is right." you had no idea. no idea. [ applause ] >> seth: you just flew all the way to missouri on a rk. 's like a guy who gets a call from his crush and anxiouses on the first ring. no. i was just sitting here. trump bought up ivanka trump to kellyanne conway to sarah
12:47 am
huckabeesanders. look at them. all th're missing is magneto hovering over them. trump obviously loomedver t mid-terms and exit polls today, 56% said the country was on the wrong track and 55% disapproved of trump. when tmp tried to campaign for other republicans, the crowds made it all about him. as you can tell from the chants in his rally last night. if you listen, i'm not sure the chants made a lot of sense. elected ent trump got because of the missourians. and we're going to re-elect him. >> that's right. >> seth: that's right. four more year they want him to get reelected, serve half his second term and that's it. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: trump also tried to scare beam democrats health care plans by telling them democrats
12:48 am
pushed for universal health care would destroymedicare. health care was clear lay huge issue fors vot and four in ten said it was their top priority. trump tried to use that against democrats but he clearly got hii talkings messed up. watch him mess up and then try cover. >> if democrats gained power on tuesday, one of the very first projects will be a socialist takeover of american health care. you know what's happening. and your taxes will triple, maybe quadruple. you won't be happy. i know you well. the democrat plan would obliterate obamitare. will also, which is good, but leave the bad par hind. it will destroy medicare. >> seth: nice save, dude.! wh he got so confused by his own bs, he told his own supporters to vote democrat. the democrat plan is bad becau would it obliterate obamacare --
12:49 am
which is good, we're against obamacare, which is bad,o if you want to get rid of obamacare vote democrat? so in the home stretch of the , campairump somehow managed to lie even more than he usually does. it didn't steam bother his supporters. they either believe every word he says or openly brag they don't care. one person saidhe was not interested in whether or how many times trump might lie that evening. i don't care if he sprouts a third -- wait, a third? oh, my god,s trum lying has gotten so out of control, he's been telling his supporters he already has two. and they believed him. trump might be happy about the results in the senate but the results in the house are huge. democrats will be able to trump his power and investigate him. they'll ask for his tax returns right away.
12:50 am
be if they get him they' running around d.c. saying -- >> did you hear? >> seth: this has been a closer look. we have got a great show tonight. the wonderful, the always fantastic, billy eichner is here, everybody. we arene also j by soledad o'brien. i can't wait to talk to her. we will be right back with amber says what, stick around, everybody. ♪

1:28 am
>> it's amazing. it's full of sugar. this has about 800 calories. and it is amazing because it is warm. it makes you feel good. >> seth: all right. here wgo. yeah. that's fatherly >> do i election night with a big glass of fire ball, taking notes, because i like to track everything. this is the first night d in't want it on television. >> seth: so that's interesting. you were on those panels. re you happy not to be on one of those panels? >> there are like eastbou panel so you can say, yeah, i think so. i think viewers hate the panels. the panels especially on election night,hey're just filling time. the polls haven't even closed. it is so painful, right? so painful. so this year, i put the profit
1:29 am
. that's a good show. and then i just followed twitter and all the polling online. >> seth: so the house has flipped, for democrats, one of the great disappointments is that three of the most charismati star stacey abrams and bo o'rourke in texas. they ran good campaigns but failed to cross the finish line. ,>> ye democratic twitter is so sad. they've lost sight of the fact they won the house. , beto! i think they will have people talk about them as contenders for 2020. i think they've really shown that they could organize and ran great campaigns and of course, we talked a lot about voter suppression. crazy things. four and a half hour waits to vote.vo ng. polling stations where they weren't plugged in. they had no electricity.
1:30 am
there are so many issues oho people votes were suppressed, it calls for morio investig and people were really talking about that seriously. plus the race pitch we saw in this, the race pitch we saw. disappointing, does it get lost how close a black woman came to almost being govern? >> and beto. if you look at the early looks at him. if h stays within 10 points, that will be good enough. he was so close so i think that is really, really important to see that the win was how close they actually goter in a red state for beto, against an incumbennd >> seth: you know it will be called sour grapes every time youomplain about something like that. do you see any future where it is better? consering that one of the
1:31 am
things that's happened under the radar was a lot of the secretary of state races, replicans wo what you saw in georgia was brian kemp being secretary of state did not seem very concerned. >> the referee was in theme that doesn't seem legal at all. i thinkurse, states are the ones who oversee that so i don't know ifhey'll see it change any time soon. what i thought was interesting was turnout. when you see people deciding, they'll go through hell and high water, mid-term elections are notoriously terrible for people actually showing up.d you look at young people. 2014, i think 20% of 18 to 29 voted. that number is so much higher. so there is goodews even in the bad news. and i don't know that you'll set seies of state who are republicans decide they care about voter suppression and will do their all to stamp it out.
1:32 am
>> what about all the firsts? do you think that will be one of the things of historic record? >> and women. 92 women in the house. you have ten women in the senate. ne women will go to governorships. and of those 92 we will in the house, roughly hf are women of colond it is anation of the changing nature of america. so i think it is reallyoing to mean down the road. even though elections today, you say results are what matter. as're looking down the road well at the electorate and what some of the young new faces ink congress l like. it is really exciting. >> seth: it will be really exting when we see them sworn in. you've spent time on your show talking about the voters who haven't been asked the questions as far as where they sta on things. what have you found on doing your show? >> weon't d our show because
1:33 am
we're taped, we get to let the e news h and then we get to analyze night thoughtful way. so we do a lost of context which is missing now. we don't treat it lik a game, football, everybody is throwing out things. we try to make sure thateople understand the story. all the people who moved out of san diego and whoave gone across the bored entire mexico because they can't afford housing in san diego. so there are americans living in mexico who commute in every day to their jobs because of -- the housing crisis. wery to do stories like that that look at people and how politics affects them. versus there's the left, the right, and there ishis game between them. >> seth: you spent time at the border wall. how baltimore? very few people who have talked about it, i don't know if you've
1:34 am
heard there is no wall there. >> there is a littleall in some parts. a low wall. >> seth: whaters the ence when you spend time at the physical place that we're charing so f from people? >>nyone who lives along the border will say mexico is a ne pa could donald trump please stop insulting these people we're in rship with? the mayor of mccallen, texas, says it is so awkward when the presthent does . we have to deal with them every day. 8,000 people cross the border to shop every single day. sohhey're dealing w immigration. we don't have a great immigration poly in this country. it is clearly problematic. but i think the whole sto of tharavan and how the media covered the caravan w so ridiculous. it is sometimes very frustrating and >> seth: do you think a lot of people have said and predicted
1:35 am
that once the miderm is over, that we will not hear about it anymore? do you think that's a fair prediction? >> well, i think there will be a lot of investigations and some of those investigations will fall under the auspices of say, ways and means or oversight. oversight will look at how the military isseul are there e-mails between the white house? et cetera, et cetera. so t nexthase of what you'll see is like investigation central. you're going to have the house intelligence committee, ways and means and oversight. which means taxes, national security, russia, ruia, russia, and you will see every single member of thest admition who you've been hearing about, 17 investigations good. the democrats are n inharge of that. >> seth: that will be interesting to see. soledad, everybody! check your local listings. we'll right back.
