12:46 am
that one was called "obama-nate your abs." [ laughter ] i mean, remember you could just do normal stuff without your phone buzzing constantly, because the president said something racist and insane it used to be when you were in the grocery store and heard someone say "son of a bitch," it was because they were out of paper towels now it's because they looked down at their phone and saw the president scream tweet something in all caps like "the bust of abraham lincoln is spying on me, not nice."

12:47 am
day searching for ways to blame or attack enemies, for literally anything no matter what it is. for example, on friday he was asked if he was planning an exter ed stay at his bedminste resort in new jersey and in his response he found a way to take a truly insane swipe air-conditioning in the white house. >> so i go to bedminster which is a beautiful place, but it's never a vacation it's working mostly. >> are you plaing a trip to bedminster over an extended period of time >> i hope not, because i like working. i'd rather be right here, but probably over a short period of time a lot of times you go, and they do a lot of work in the white house. for instance, the obama administration worked out a brand-new air-conditioning system for the west wing and it was so od before they d the system now that they did the system, it's freezing or hot in here [ light laughter ] >> seth: well, maybe it's hot, because you're president, and this is hell and maybe it's freezing, because when you were elected, hell
12:48 am
froze over [ cheers and applause trump has been losing his mind in part over the various congressional investigations of his corruption, because he's a fundamentally lawless president. and one of the democrats charged with investigating trump in ry congress is mand congressman elijah cummings. he's the chair of the house oversight committee, so it's literally his job to conductsi overt of the administration. for example, cummings has criticized and held hearings on the cruel and inhumane conditions in border detention centers, which even trump's own department of homeland securitye called danus in a report released earlier this month. and cummings has also been investigating the use of private accounts to conduct official business by some of trump's closest aides and advisers cummings is doing his job by investigating trump and trying to hold this administration accountable. so naturally, trump responded the onlyay he's capable of, with a vile, racist tirade >> president trump picked another twitter fight with an african-amican lawmaker, calling representative elijah cummings a brutal bully for shouting and screaming at
12:49 am
trump officialtestifying before congress. "the border is clean, efficient, and well-run, just very crowded," mr. trump tweeted. before disparaging cummings' west baltimore district as a rodent-infested mess >> seth: so once again, he attacked a congress member of color byfesing the word, ined, just as he did two weeks ago when he told four democratic congresswomen of color, three of whom were born here and all of whom are americans to go back to the crime-infested places from which they came. hey man, the only thing that's infested here is your brai you know, that one there yeah laughter and applause i mean, i'd ask -- i'd ask you toerpologize to these lawmak for your racist tirades, but you can't even say the word, lawmakers. >> he's worked in both houses of s.ngress, advising lawmark >> seth: that's right. [ laughter ] lawmarrs as in, i think trump has been sniffing lawmarkers [ light laughter ]
12:50 am
he keeps coming back to this racist trope, because he's racist it's the core of his ideology. on fox news sunday, trump's acting chief of staff mick mulvaney tried to defend the tweets, absurdly claiming they had nothing to do with race but host, chris wallace, wasn't having it. >> there is a clear pattern here, mick the fact is that before his inau -- that before inauguraon, the president tweeted about john lewis, a black congressman, that he - this is before his inauguration, he should spend time in s crime-infested district. g then two weeks ago, s after these four members of the squad, all women of color, andhe says tshould go back to the crime-infested countries from which they come.t then he talks abouel ijah cummings, and he says his district is rat and rodent infested infested it sounds like vermin.ou it ss subhuman that there -- and these are all six members -- members of congress who are people of colo >> i think you're spending way too much time reading between the lines. does anybody -
12:51 am
>> i'm not reading between the lines. i'm reading the lines. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter and applause he's just reading the lines. it's obvious it's not like you need to play clips of him backwards like a beatles record to hear some sort of secret meage admitting he's a racist although, i wonder if we tried it >> i am not racist [ laughter ] >> seth: the only remedy for a corrupt, racist, president is impeachment. congress needs to use their constitutional power to tell a coherent story about this president's racism, his corruption and his self-dealing. congress needs to their jobas - >> lawmarkers.

the conservati party have decided that he's the best answer the question, "how do you un[ bleep ] this situation?" [ laughter ] yeah >> seth: you've -- obviously a lot of people have drawn the parallel between trump and johnson. and yet -- >> sure. >> seth: you've pointed out that the difference is that -- that boris is only pretending to be dumb yes [ laughter ] yeah it's - yeahwe the difference b -- there are superficial similarities between trump and johnson, obviously. but there is -- it is very tactical you know, there was -- you never think that trump is playing chess mentally [ laught ] or that he knows how to play chess. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> i have no doubt that he's been to the chessboard and moved the pieces and said "checkmate" -- [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> -- with the kind of confidence that makes you wonder whether he knows the rules better than you do but -- [ light laughter ] no, no, johnson, like, throughout his whole life has been very, very good at kind of charming his way out of diffult situations and it's not going to work this timeis but ther- basically
12:58 am
because he has for the first time a problem that where his charm will not apply getting through brexit i 100 days or just getting past, you know, the deadline for the withdrawal agreement is going to be incredibly hard so he's -- it's so risky you know, if the election ofs trump erica shooting itself in the foot, the election of boris johnson is kind of britain watching that happen, thinking about the ramifications of it and then shooting themselves in the [ bleep ]. that's basically - [ laughter ] -- in a nutshell, that's what happened [ applause ] >> seth: isn't it terrifying because i feel like the brexit vote happened. and everybody said, "this willng be a warnio america before their election." >> yes >> seth: and then instead they elected trump. and then you feel like everybody in britain was like -- >> that's right. >> seth: -- "the election of trump will be a warning to us. >> yes >> seth: and then everybody keeps doubling down and like - >> it's right. >> seth: "you're wrong wee in." >> yeah. >> seth: "we're all in." >> it's escalating "hold my beer" situations [ laughter ] everyone pushing the chips and go, "no, we can be way more self-destructive than that."

12:59 am
yeah, it needs to stop being a contest. >> seth: you pointed out one of the great things about the relationship with the prime minister and the queen is they have tea once a week. >> well, they do so that's the thing, like, she had to ask him to form a government >> seth: ies there hes. >> there they are. >> seth: uh-huh. >> what a wonderful image that is >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ]t >> at leasey're both uncomfortable. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> but, yeah that is the old, arcane tradition is that he must -- must go and have tea with her every single week as everyt prime minister m, whatever is happening in the country. whether you're having a really difficult, important day, you have to at some point say, "i need to go and have tea with the queen w. [ laughter ] so i'm sure that was kind of an amazing experience for him but at some point, it's ing to become a chore i don't know how many times -- how many times meeting the queen it is. it's probably around double figures you blink, "oh, [ p ]. >> seth: yeah.

[ laughter ] though it seems like at this point, like, she's aggressively trying not to meet you i think it's -- her instinct is absolutely accurate. [ laughter ] i think it's probably for the best that we - >> seth: yeah. >> -- we live parallel lives >> seth: right, and imagine -- >> myself and beyonce. >> seth: and imagine meeting with her is probably better -- well, also i'd like to point out that you still could at least aspire to meeting her. and i feel like -- >> that's true >> seth: --for tha people who met her, the rest of your life is sort of --

1:04 am
if i'm going to be typecast, that's me. [ laughter ] yeah medid stand-up before i ca here >> seth: and how did it go >> i mean, not amazing ththing with stand-up in britain is there's a period of time -- i mean, it's the same here, like, physically - there's a period of time before audience can see you, but you don't have the ability to start speaking yet and in britain, they're kind of just sizing up your physical weaknesses - [ laughter ] -- to then use against you so i had round glasses at the and it was the time th harry potter was a big deal.
