12:43 am
we're looking at putting in a very major tax cut for middle income people, and if we do that, it will be some time just prior, i would say, to november. >> major what again? >> a major tax cut. we are going to be putting in -- hed are studying very deeply right now, roundlock, a major tax cut.>> eth: no. [ laughter ] e don't believe you're studying anything around ock. i mean, you're eye bags say all-nighter. but your grasp of policies says -- "in bed by 7:00." but the real heart of the gop's closing argument is its racist fearmongering over the caravan of migrants headed towards the southern border. in reality, the caravan is a few thousand vulnerable people fleeing poverty and violence, but trump keeps insisting it's a gang full of criminals. trump's campaign also produced an ad calling the caravan an invasion. the ad was obviously and explicitly racist. but before you get mad at trump, just know this is the first he's hearing about it.
12:44 am
>> mr. president, several of the networks have declined to run your immigration ad that you produced. t sayit it was racist. do you have a response for that? >> i don't know about it. i mean, you're telling me something i don't know about. >> seth: see, there you . he didn't know anything about it. the only problem is, this was the last part of that ad. >> i'm donald trump, and i approve this message. [ laughter ] >> seth: "i'm donald trump, and i approve this message. in fact, i've been working on it around the clock." [ laughter he's like a guy who denies robbing a bank, but forgets that he waved at the security camera. [ laughter ] now this ad was so racist that cnn refused to air it. and today nbc and fox news said they would stop airing it. any network should have seen it it was, and turned it down right away, but unfortunately, not everyone did. >> the president has bee criticized for a campaign ad that is not only factually incorrect, it comes across to many as simply racist. cnn has refuseto run the ad, but nbc did air a shorter version of the ad last night during the green bay new england football game.
12:45 am
>> seth: you couldn't find anything else to fill 30 seconds of ad time during a game betweet the patriots a packers? i mean, hell, just give us a live stream of tom brady on the sidelines in that giant coat. [ laught ] in fact, you could tell the ad was racist because even the ad after it was shocked. >> i'm donald trump, and i approve this msage. >> dude, that's [ bleep ] up. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: and then, of course, there's also trump's racist th stunt over bght citizenship. now automatic citizenship for anyone borin this country is a right enshrined in the 14th amendment. and yet trump has been insisting he can just unilaterally repeal it through executive order. something he obviously cannot do. >> just so you understand, a person comes in, was never in our country before, has a baby, and now all of a sudden the baby is a united states citizen.
12:46 am
and through chain migration and baher things, many other people come in through th. hundreds of thousas of ildren born to illegal immigrants are made automatic citizens of the united states every year because of this crazy, lunatic policy. >>keeth: why does he scream that? [ light laughter ] sounds like he's doing an impression of inrry lewis sion his own balls. [ laughter ] "automatic citizens of the united states!" also -- [ cheers and applause ] why?es why is he so od with babies? trump has been all over the map almost every issue throughout his life, but one thing he's been very clear abouli he does no babies. >> our companies have been just taken like we're a bunch of babies. we have a bunch of babies running our country, folks.h we have a bu losers. they're losers.
12:47 am
they're babies. thst for those babies out e that keep talking about tariffs. oh, please. please, don't be a baby. okay? i know a lot of these things. i mean'm not a baby. i know all these things. >> i know. but why do you -- >> i'm not a baby. >> seth: nothing makes you sound more like a baby than saying, 'm not a baby." [ laughter ] if you're not a baby, you don't have to clarify. there's never a situation where you're looking at someone, and you're like -- [ laughter ] is that a baby? [ laughter ] 're wrong.ns out y this whole birthright citizenship thing is obviously just a racist stunt designed to motivate the gop base. trump himself can't even exactly explain how it would work. listen to him talk to reporters, and try to argue that he doesn't need a constitutional amendment to change the constitution. >> birthright citizenship is a very, very impornt subject. in my opinion, it's much less complex than people think. i think it says it very loud and clear in the constitution that you don't have to go through the
12:48 am
process of whatever abey're talkint. >> seth: oh, yes. [ laughter ] sure, sure, sure, sure, sure, sure, sure, sure -- the process of whatever they're talking about. that's exactly how theers laid it out in the constitution. [ laughter ] >> the congress or whatever it's called, with the consent of whoever, shall have the power to do something to the thing. you ow, the big piece of pap with all the laws on it. what's it called? actually, never mindrg i what i was trying to say. >> seth: n only is this racist, it's also infuriating, coming from a party that has spent years lecturing everyone else about the constitution. for years, republicans have paid lip service to the constitution, including trump who repeated those talking points as a candidate, and as president. >> we defend our constitution, and we believe in the wisdom of our founders. i feel very strongly aboti the consti and ruling through the constitution. i'm proud of it.
12:49 am
i love it, and i want to go through the constitution. that's what we want to do. i mean, we want to bring the constitution back. >> seth: bring the constitution back? it didn't go anywhere. [ laughter ] it's the founding document of r nation, not the mcrib. [ laughter ] and lying -- [ cheers and applause ] and lying about the caravan isn't trump's only racist scare tactic. in his desperation to fe off a blue wave, he's also back to implying that former president obama is not american. trump was in indiana campaigning against democratic senator joe donnelly, and said this. >> it's no surprise that joe donnelly is holding a rally this weekend with barack h. obama. [ booing ] >>eth: nah, go eff yoursel [ cheers and applause ] no one -- no, no, no. [ cheers and applause ] no one wants to see your racisth
12:50 am
ades. although, you know trump is the guy when he plays ch who just answers during the question. "movie, one word [ laughter ] trump is running a campaign of racist incitement. and that's because he and his allies know that keeping people angry and afraid is one way they can stay in power. inact, that's a point obam made at a rally in florida on friday. >> why is it that the folks that won the last election are so mad all the time? [ cheers ] it's an interesting question. i mean, like, when i won the presidency, at least my side felt pretty good. >> seth: i love that trump is out there losing his mind, throng out one insane conspiracy theory after another, and obama's just like, "you mad, bro?" [ laughter ] also, man -- [ applause ] i am -- i am so, so happy funny obama back, and he's got new material. i guess that netflix deal he
12:51 am
signed is really working out. [ laughter ] "you -- you hear about this caravan? the only van trump should be thinking about is a moving van. and he looks like he'seady to move you see those bags under his eyes? those bags are packed." [ laughter ] "what else?" this election -- [ applause ] "hey, melania, help me get these bags into the overhead." [ laughter ] "but melania, she's not on the plane. he's going up one stairs. she's going down the other. what ee?" [ light laughter ]n this elects made clear what the modern gop has become, a party that traffics in open racism, and sells its voters culture war rhetoric while
12:52 am
enriching themselves at taxpayers' expense. they're hoping racist fearmongering will distract you while they rob you, and they're hoping you won't care if the president is a -- >> crazy lunatic. >> seth: this has been "a closer look."
