12:39 am
calls, trump tweeted, quote, "i rarely use a cell phone, and go when i do, it'rnment authorized." which i guess explains why the v governmenthim this phone.

12:41 am
prominent ats and cnn yesterday, president trump flew to wisconsin to campaign for gop senate candidate leah vukmir. you could tell trump was trying to restrain himself. in fact, throughout lly he kept bragging to the crowd about how nice he was being. >> the democrats are for higher taxes, more regulation, and more top-down government control. [ booing ] and by the way, do you see how nice i'm behaving tonight? this is, like, have you ever seen this? we're all behaving very well. and hopefully, we can keep it .hat w right? [ cheers ] we're going to keep it that way. leah's radical far-left opponeny is taldwin. [ booing ] who wants a socialist takeover of health care. [ booing ] you know, i'm ying to say that very nicely.
12:42 am
i'm trying -- see normally i'd seam, they want a socialist takeover. now i say, wants a socialist takeover. [ laughter ] i'm trying to be nice. >> seth: man. low-energy trump is so weird. [ laughter ] it's like -- [ applse ] it's like seeing that neighborhood dog who's always digging through everyone's trash suddenly moping around with a cone on his head. [ laughter ] hey, maybe don't make it clear that being nice wasn't your first choice. wyou're like a cannibal wts credit for just licking people's faces. [ laughter ]"i 't it great that i haven't taken a bite?" [ laughter ] you're an adult, you don't get credit for doing something adults are supsed to do. someone sent bombs to several major political figures and trump's acting like a ose parents forced him to wear a suit for the family christmas photo. [ light laughter ] i'm surprised he didn't end the rally by turning to mike pence g and sa"i was nice, can i have my ice cream now?"li
12:43 am
t laughter ] also listen to trump -- [ applause ] listen to trump's impression of himself. it's almost like he knows how crazy he is. >> normally i'd scream, they want ta a socialisover. now i say, wants a socialist takeover. >> seth: i've said it before, i'll say it again, donald trump has the best donald trump imession. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] "have you guys -- have you guys ever noticed that thing where i'm all, like, crazy?" [ light laughter ] this rally was just the latest in a series trump has been doing to campaign for republicans in closing days before the midterms. now, if there's one refrain you hear more than any other at th e rallies, it's his false claim that he's accomplished more than any president in history. but tellingly, republicans are not actually talking about any of those supposed sh accompnts. just take their signature piece of legislation, the massive tax cut they gave to corporations and the wealthy. that tax cut is so unpopular that rather than campaign on it, trump is just making up a ly compleew tax cut
12:44 am
specifically for the middle class that he claims republicans are about to pass. >> we are looking at putting in a very major tax cut for middle-income people.t, and if we do tt will be some time just prior, i would say, to november. we are going to be putting in, and are studying very deeply right now round the clock a fo major tax cumiddle-income people. >> what was the timeframe for that? >> i would s some time around the 1st of november, maybe a little before that. >> seth: i'll give trump credit, for one things he doesn't overwhelm you with the details. [ laughter ] "we're gonna maybe do a tax cut pretty soon. maybe novemberuary -- [ laughter ] ish." but trump says republicans are going to introduce a major middle-class taxveut prior to er. which sounds great, except for the fact that congress is out of r the novemberaf 6th midterm election. [ laughter ] so there are two possibilities here.ei er trump is lying, or he doesn't know how congress works. and honestly, it's probably
12:45 am
both. [ laughter ] if you're ever -- [ cheers and applause ] if you're ever askg yourself, is trump lying or is he stupid? the answer is most likely, "c," all of the [ er ] and yet trump keeps repeating this obvious fabrication, hoping voters will hear it and think re blicans are actually goi to cut their taxes. in fact, here's an exchange trump had with reportershis week where they tried to explain to him that what he was saying made no sense. i'm going to read the transcript for you. here it is. .you said that you wanted tax cuts by november 1 congress isn't even in session. how is that possible? no, we're going to be passing. no, no, we're putting in a resolution some time in the next week or week and a half.o eks. a resolution where? we're going to put in.e weving a middle income tax reduction of about 10%. are you signing an executive order for that? no, no, no, i'm going through congress. i but congre't in session, though. [ laughter ] we won't have time to do the vo. we'll do the vote later. congress is out.
12:46 am
we'll do the vote after the election."it like an abbott and costello routine where trump is abbott nd and costellohe theater has a gas leak. [ applause ] that transcript is like listening to your grandpa talk to the cable guy. [ light laughter ] "i'm trying to change the channel." "sir, your tv's not on." "yes, it is." "what channel are you watching?" "the snowy channel."li t laughter ] trump then repeated the same lie at a rally in texas later that day. as he was talking about it he tried to ask the congressman in n arge of tax policy, kevin brady, whos the crowd if what he was saying was accurate. >> we're going be putt a 10% tax cut for middle-income families. it's going to be put in next year. you talk about help with taxes, and so, kevin, we're putting in next week the 10% reduction in middle-income taxes, right?
12:47 am
next week. >> seth: "we're putting in next week, right? no? why? oh, because congress is out of sessio but why? oh, they're complaining. for what oh, congress. [ light laughter ] what's that?" but trump -- [ applause ] trump isn't just lying. trump isn't just lying about stuff he hasn't done. he's also lying about stuff he has done, like his attempts to repeal obamacare which protects people with pre-existing conditions. remember, this has been the defining fight of the last li decade of cs. republicans have spent ten year promising en trying to repeal obamacare. and yet, and perhaps the most brazen lie of the president say, ump tweeted yesterday and repeated again today the false claim that republicans will protect pre-existing conditions. >> quote, "republicans will totally protect people with pre-existing conditions. democrats will not. vote republican." >> we will always protect wi american pre-existing
12:48 am
conditions. always. >> seth: dude, you just spent two years trying to repeal the damn thing. we saw you. you held a party in the rose garden to celebrate. do you remember? it was you and the cast of "cocoon." [ laughter ] i mean, look at how many old white dudes are there. [ applause ] all they need is an acoustic t guitar and tess conference could have doubled as a viagra commercial. [ laughter ] and not only did t gop try repeatedly to repeal obamacare, the administration is currently backing a lawsuit that seeks to overturn obamacare and protections with people with pre-existing conditions. and yet, in spite of this, trump and gop candidates across the countrhave been lying through their teeth claiming that they will maintain those protections. >> we can prote-existing conditions and you need to understand, everyone agrees we're going torotect pre-existing conditions. >> we can protect people with pre-existing conditions in the state without protecting the failure that is obam >> i am passionate about protecting people with pre-existing conditions and
12:49 am
forcing insurance companies to provide them health insuranc >> i support forcing insurance companies to cover all pre-existing conditions. >> we support taking care of people with pre-existing conditions. i've said it before, i'll say ia again, i'l in front of a truck before i let people go without verage for pre-existing conditions. >> seth: oh, well lucky for youn fallinront of a truck is covered under obamacare. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] there's that. so, in the closing days of the campaign, trump and the gop are lying brazenly about health care ma atalla p hat.t -ufacuils,x fallback plan is to scare the crap out of people by lying about immigration. in fact, we're seeing that all ov y.icanarar mge er ts countr about immigration, appealing to racial paranoia and in some casts, running explicitly ra campaigns against their democratic opponents. which is why it was so cathart to watch this amazing exchange yesterday from florida's gubernatorial debate between democrat andrew gillum and republican ron desantis.
12:50 am
>> mr. desantis has spoken. hey, first of all, he's goneo nazis helping him out at the state. he's spoken at racist conferences. he's accepted a contribution and would not return it from someone whrred to the former president of the united states as a muslim n-----. when asked to return that money, he said, no. he's using that money to now fund negative ads. now, i'm not calling mr desantis a racist. i'm simply saying the racists believe he's a racist. [ laughter ] >> seth: if i may appropriate some black culture for just a moment. oh, ap. [ laughter ] i really -- [ applause ] i really hope republicans ar right about health care, because after a hit like that, that dude's gonna have a pre-existing condition. [ laughter ] that debate should have gone by "mortal kombat" rules. >> i'm simply saying the racists believe he's a racist. >> finish him. [ laughter ] >> seth: seriously.lo at that guy's face.
12:51 am
[ cheers ] any time someone makes that face, it should be accompanied by this sound. [ pac-man dying ] think about what it says that after two years in power, all republicans can do is lie about health care, make up a fictional tax cut, and try to te people about a group of vulnerable migrants slowly walking toward the border. they've had two years to governs and nothing w for it. i'd say a lot worse than that but -- >> i'm trying to b[ nice. ght laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ]>> eth: we'll be right back with gerard butler, everybody!

12:57 am
i was a sailor on a ship saying, "torpedo's burying range, 6,000." and while i'm filming, the quarter master said he wouldn't say that. so it all got taken rom me. >> seth: oh, he took away your lines. >> he took away my lines. and i was left with, "we're down by the stern, sir."ht [ light la ] so from that day, i said, "i am making a submarine movie. p i'm going duce it and nobody is going to take my lines away." >> seth: there you go. you play a captae. in this mo there's a coup in russia. and you're sort of a world normal stuff for gerard butler. >> normal stf. yeah. >> seth: a regular day at the office. this is interesting. the pentagon, the navy asked you to actually give a press confer film. talk about the and this is a real thing. you went and gave a press conferen at the pentagon. and i should point out -- [ cheers and applause ] yeah. like, you're -- so this -- i want to make sure everybody knows. a you'ren actor talking about a movie. but these are real reporters. right? >> yes. >> seth: how was it? >> unfortunately they put in real reporters, not fake ones.

[ laughter ] >> yeah, we did eat that popcorn.we yeahried it out in the microwave and then we had it. [ light laughter ] and then the captain also lit up a cigar before we went out. he was like, "okay, this is what we're going to do." so wlit up a cigar. i'm thinking, "this is insane." i'm on top of a hunter killer submarine and feeling a bi queasy, though, and all i hear is -- [ grunting ] and i turnround and i'm looking at the captain, like, "is that donovan?" over the back throwing up. >> seth: that's your director. >> our director, donovan, is throwing up on the edge -- gone was that hope that we could

[ light laughter ] but the idea was, you know, that terror united the world's ntleaders and it was imporo them. this was a summit where bono was there trying to draw attention to global poverty. and it was important to tony blair and george w. bush to speak out at this moment of terror you look at what happened yesterday. the american president on the day of an attempted domestic terror attack against his political opponents and enemies patted himself on the back for behaving and not screaming about socialists, but saying it in a soft voice. >> seth: yeah. and you -- i want to point out that you obviously had to be with the president in difficult times. there were other crises that were, is it safe tsay, a little bit more comic? you were working with the president when he choked on a pretzel and fell down. [ laughter ]
1:14 am
>> yeah. well, so i -- yeah. [ light laughter ] he did. he did. [ light laughter ] so this was the story. >> seth: okay. >> and i never said this out for myself.e becae times were different. i wasn't a reporter then. >> seth: right. >> so he was so fit from all his running that his blood pressure was so low that choking for a minute oa pretzel laid him out. >> seth: uh-huh. >> but even in all moments like that, we never talked about the 25th amendment. anh i first read about the 2 amendment when the book "fire and fury" came out and steve bannon said, "oh, you had to protect him from the 25th --" i googled it. i didn't know what the 25th amendment was. so you have a white house now where all the people around him about the 25th amendm it's a remarkable commentary. on what the people closest to him actually see. 'cause if something looks chaotic on the outside, it's million times worse on the inside. >> seth: you referred to yourself as a non-practicing republican right now because the republican -- [ laughter ] because the republican party has drifted away from what i believe were the values that drew you to
1:15 am
it. and these were the isms such as nationalism. >> yeah. >> sh: is this something tha you saw coming at any point?me , is there something that happened with donald trump or is it something that was trending d this waye took advantage of? >> you know, it was something that the people i worked for tried to push against. it was something that sarah palin dabbled in. she talked about president obama palling around with terrorists. i mean, she started the grievance -- >> seth: and you were working with john mccain at the time, so you're very close to that. >> and i saw it. and i saw that her crowds are big and louder and more animated by her speaking to their grievances. speaking to their nativisms. speaking to their feeling of beinangry about immigration and other issues. but john mccain didn't embrace any of that's probably why ultimately the two of them ended up not on the same page.o >> seth: dueis non-practicing and the current state of the republican party, do you feel as though a time will come again where you will c ce republicanism? >> no. >> seth: do you hope that -- [ laughter ] >> no. look, i think that the time when
1:16 am
republicans and democrats went on t.v. and fought about taxes is dead. i don't think that will happen again. and i think more often than not, people that have seen american presidents up close and know what the conduct is supposed to be like will ultimately decide that a check on this administration is urgent. i think it's really imrtant that democrats take over the house and/or the senate. i think th any white house is improved by having a check and a balance. this white house more than any other.
