Trump Is Having an Impeachment Meltdown: A Closer Look

Trump Is Having an Impeachment Meltdown: A Closer Look

-President Trump wanted to dig
a trench on the Southern border and fill it with alligators
and snakes, and then, he lost his mind in a series of press conferences
about impeachment. For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ I don’t think it would surprise
you if I said that some very weird stuff
has been going on the past few weeks. I mean, weird stuff’s been going on for four years, ever since a famously stupid
game show host came down the escalator
and forced his way into our hearts like
a stubborn piece of bacon fat. But the last two weeks
in particular have felt like that scene from “Ghostbusters”
where the EPA guy opens up the containment system
and ghosts just start pouring out into the city. In fact, I’m pretty sure
I saw the zombie cab driver on TV defending the president
the other day. [ Laughter and applause ] Even putting aside… even putting aside all
the recent revelations about Trump colluding
with foreign governments, we keep learning new details
about just how corrupt, lawless, and out of his mind
he is. For example, a new book reports
that Trump wanted to inflict horrific violence on desperate
migrants seeking asylum, offered pardons to officials who broke the law
to build his border wall, and had some truly insane ideas
for how to fortify that wall. -“The New York Times”
is reporting new details about ideas President Trump has
for the Southern border. Privately, the president
had often talked about fortifying a border wall
with a water-filled trench stocked with snakes
or alligators, prompting aides to seek
a cost estimate. -That’s right. The president
of the United States wanted to dig
a water-filled trench and stock it with snakes
and alligators, you know, like some sort
of inbred medieval king. At night, he probably drinks
milkshakes from a goblet while Eric and Don Jr.
joust with golf clubs. [ Laughter ] I mean, seriously, think about
how insane this is. His aides actually had to go out and get a cost estimate
for this plan. How do you even do that? Walk over to the reptile section
at PetSmart with a map of the border
and be like, “I don’t know, uh…” [ Laughter and applause ] Snake’s like a foot long. The border’s 2,000 miles. Can I get a billion snakes? [ Laughter ] No, I don’t want you to worry that this snake-filled moat
thing is occupying too much of the president’s time because he has moved on
to other topics. For example, President Caligula
over here is also arguing that impeaching him would
cause a civil war, accusing Democrats of treason, claiming the Ukraine
whistle-blower spied on him, and calling impeachment, which is a procedure laid out by the framers in
the Constitution, a coup. -President Trump ramping up
his attacks on the impeachment inquiry
engulfing his presidency. Tweeting overnight, “As I learn
more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion
that what is taking place is not an impeachment.
It is a coup.” -All right, first of all,
the way you know that tweet is wrong
is because it starts with “As I learn more each day.” [ Laughter ] Trump forgets stuff every day. Today, he forgot there was
an “A” in “moat.” Second, it’s not a coup. It’s a process laid out
in the Constitution by the founding fathers. It’s not like if you
were removed from office, Democrats would take over and the military would
storm Trump tower and rename it the Hillary Hilton
or something. I mean, the worst thing
that would happen would be that Mike pence
would become president. And I assure you,
Democrats do not want a president Mike Pence either. For one thing, taxpayers would have to spend
millions every year replacing his batteries. [ Laughter ] Now, I know you’re all worried
about one thing. It’s the big question hanging
over all of this. And that is how is the president
handling all this emotionally? What’s his state of mind?
How’s he holding up? And the good news is
that judging from this very sane news conference he gave in the oval office
this afternoon with the president of Finland
sitting next to him, I’d say Trump seems to be
handling it all pretty well. -Adam Schiff, he’s a lowlife.
He should be forced to resign. The call was perfect. In fact, Lindsey Graham said, “I didn’t know you could be
so nice.” There’s needles and drugs all
over the street. He says, “Hey, hey,
tell Vlad I’ll talk to him after the election’s over.
I’ll talk to him.” She went crazy. She said “We can’t impeach him
of this conversation. That’s a great conversation.” President Trump started
screaming, ranting, and raving. Alligators and snakes. Skin-piercing spikes. I said, “Why are you asking
that stupid question?” Everything “The Washington Post”
does is fake. It’s a fake newspaper. I don’t even use fake anymore. I call the fake news now
corrupt news. What happened in 2016
is a disgrace to this country. -Well, that I agree with. I mean, some crazy guy… [ Cheers and applause ] Some crazy guy lost
the popular vote and fell ass-backwards into
the presidency, and now the news has to run
chirons with the words, and this is real, “Trump denies
wanting snakes, gators, spikes on border.”
[ Laughter ] I cannot express to you enough
just how deeply off the rails Trump’s performance was today.
I mean, just look at this. This is an actual photo taken of the president
of the United States during an official oval office
meeting this afternoon. Look at that.
He looks like a rabid groundhog who just popped out of his hole and predicted six more weeks
of word vomit. [ Laughter ] It looks like a Python
jutting out of the Amazon River. They should put him in a moat
on the Southern border. [ Laughter ] It’s not safe to cross! It’s not safe to cross. So let’s try taking these
one at a time. Trump slammed intelligence
committee chairman Adam Schiff. Trump has already called
for Schiff to be arrested for treason, and today,
he attacked Schiff for criticizing
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who was on the Ukraine call
himself and is now threatening
to obstruct the impeachment inquiry. -This guy was negative
on Mike Pompeo. He can’t — you know,
there’s an expression. He couldn’t carry
his blank strap. I won’t say it because they’ll
say it was so terrible to say. But that guy couldn’t carry
his blank strap. -Of all the insane stuff
you’ve said, why would you think
the word jockstrap would suddenly be over the line? This morning, you called
the impeachment inquiry bull[bleep] on Twitter. But jockstrap
is beyond the pale? Or maybe — maybe —
it’s probably possible, he just couldn’t remember
and he kept saying blank like he was a contestant
on “Password.” -The password is…jock. -That guy couldn’t carry
his blank strap. [ Laughter ] -Then, after that performance in the oval office, Trump moved locations
from one room to another where he held a press conference
with the president of Finland. And at one point, Trump
was asked about his repeated use of the word “treason”
to describe the whistle-blower and Democrats
who were investigating him. -Do you consider anyone
who opposes you treasonous? -No, no.
I consider when they lie. When they stand before
our great body in our great chamber
and they make up a story that’s fiction like Schiff did. He took that perfect
conversation I had with the Ukrainian President,
and he made it into a total lie. Believe it or not, I watch
my words very carefully. -I don’t believe it.
I don’t believe it at all. You ramble like a guy
who just got handed a speedball in the bathroom at studio 54. [ As Trump ] [ Inhales sharply ]
Whoo! Come on, baby! Let’s collude with
a foreign adversary and then dance our asses off
till sunrise, ha, ha, ha, ha! [ Laughter ] In fact, throughout today, Trump used the word “treason”
multiple times. And at one point,
he even said it as if he was quoting
someone else, a rhetorical tactic he used
not once, but twice. -Some people even say
it was treason. There are those that think
I’m a very stable genius. -Those people are you. You’re quoting yourself. I’d say he’s quoting
the voices in his head, but I’m pretty sure the only
things in his head are… -Alligators and snakes.
[ Laughter ] -Also, who would you be quoting? No one else has ever said the
words “stable genius” before. It’s like “beautiful wall.”
You’re the only one who says it. And then, when a reporter
tried to ask Trump a very simple question —
what was he trying to accomplish on the call with
the Ukrainian president if he wasn’t digging up dirt
on Joe Biden, Trump got very testy. -Ask a question please.
-Thank you, sir. -What about Mr. Biden? -What does he want about Biden? What did you want him
to look into on Biden? -Look, Biden and his son
are stone-cold crooked. And you know it. His son walks out with millions
of dollars. The kid knows nothing. You know it, and so do we.
Go ahead, ask a question. -The question, sir, was what did
you want President Zelensky to do about Vice President Biden
and his son Hunter? -Are you talking to me?
-Yeah. It was just a follow-up
of what I just asked you, sir. -Listen, listen. Are you ready? We have the president
of Finland. Ask him a question.
-I have one for him. I just wanted to follow up
on the one that I asked you. -Did you hear me?
-What did you want? -Did you hear me?
-Yes. -Ask him a question.
-I will. But — -I’ve given you a long answer.
Ask this gentleman a question. Don’t be rude. -Don’t drag him into this!
[ Laughter ] [ As Trump ] You should talk
to the president of Finland. He told me he wants to tell you
how innocent I am. In fact, he was on the call too.
It was all his idea.” [ Normal voice ] He sounds like
a dad scolding his children to say hello to a houseguest. [ As Trump ] Don’t be rude.
Say hello to Uncle Rudy. And this time,
don’t kick him in the balls. [ Laughter ] [ Normal voice ] All of this of
course just adds to the portrait we already have of a lawless,
delusional president who thinks he can do whatever he
wants without consequences. Over the last two weeks,
for example, we found out that Trump
orchestrated a vast scheme in which he subverted
American foreign policy almost entirely to serve his
own personal political goals. He dangled a quid pro quo
to get the president of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden. He told the Russians
in the oval office he didn’t care that they
interfered in the 2016 election. And he asked the Prime Minister
of Australia to help him prove his insane conspiracy theories about the origins
of the Russia investigation. At this point, Trump is just
cold-calling countries asking them if they want to
collude. [ As Trump ] Hello, Ecuador? Do you have any dirt
on Joe Biden? [ Laughter ] No, you [muttering] Do you have Bolivia’s number? [ Laughter ] Now, if you’re wondering
why Trump was asking the Prime Minister of Australia
of all countries to help him dig up dirt
on the Mueller probe, the short version
is Australia found out Russia was trying to interfere
in U.S. elections and they tried to do
the right thing by reporting it to the FBI. And as we know, doing the right
thing is not Trump’s style. -“The New York Times” reports
that Trump pushed the Australian
Prime Minister during another recent phone call
to help his Attorney General, Bill Barr, gather information
on the origins of the Mueller investigation
into him. Trump was, in effect, asking the Australian government
to investigate itself. FBI counterintelligence
investigators began examining any Trump ties to Russia’s
2016 election interference after Australian officials
told the bureau that Russian intermediaries had made overtures
to Trump advisers about releasing
politically damaging information about Hillary Clinton. -That’s right. Trump asked
the Australian Prime Minister to investigate his own
government for correctly reporting Russian
election meddling to the FBI. Or at least, whoever he thought
was the prime minister. [ Laughter ] [ As Trump ] Mr. Dundee,
thank you for meeting with me. Can I call you Crocodile? On that point, do you know
any other crocodiles who’d be willing to work
on the Southern border? [ Cheers and applause ] We have a beautiful moot. Beautiful moot for them
to swim in. [ Normal voice ] Now apparently,
Trump’s overtures to all these countries are part
of an elaborate plot fueled by wild conspiracy
theories to do two things — manufacture a false smear
against Joe Biden and somehow prove that
the Russia investigation was a deep state hoax
created by the Democrats. And he used the levers
of government and U.S. diplomacy to do it. For example, he involved the Attorney General
William Barr by repeatedly invoking
his name on the call with the president of Ukraine. And then last week,
he mysteriously sent Barr on a trip to Italy
amid the Ukraine firestorm with no explanation. ABC reported that
Attorney General Barr has been on official travel
in Italy for the past few days. It’s unclear why the trip
was only just revealed. Sorry, but since when
do government officials just get to go off to Italy
for secret unannounced trips without telling anyone? Normal people
don’t get to do that. You never walked into your job
at Chipotle and been like, “Where’s Brad?” “Oh, he decided to go
to Venice last night.” “Don’t worry,
it’s a business trip. He’s wrapping burritos
on a gondola.” [ Laughter ] And then, yesterday,
we found out what that trip was all about. Trump also asked Italy
to help him dig up dirt on the Mueller investigation, and he sent Barr to Italy
as part of that mission. -Attorney General William Barr
traveled overseas to personally investigate the origins
of the Russia investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign. NBC News confirms Barr met with senior Italian intelligence
officials last week in Italy, and the president followed
through on a request from Barr to call Australia’s Prime
Minister on his behalf. The investigation into
the origins of the Russia probe follows repeated
and unproven claims by the Trump administration
that President Trump was the target of a witch hunt. -Trump sent his Attorney General
to Italy to try to prove his insane conspiracy theory
that the Russia investigation was a deep state witch hunt
concocted by the Democrats. Trump watches so much TV now
he’s just getting his ideas from “The Da Vinci Code.” [ As Trump ] Go to the Vatican,
sneak into the basilica, and open the tomb
of Rudy Giuliani. [ Laughter ] And then shake him awake. Urgh! [ Normal voice ]
What’s happening is simple — An unhinged President
disconnected from reality is using his power to pursue
insane conspiracy theories and dig up dirt on his
opponents, and he and his aides
are obstructing an official impeachment inquiry. Proving once again that his
administration is full of… -Alligators and snakes. -This has been “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪

  1. This is how retards try and bring a man down who is trying to get America back on the right track again. He is trying to run a country after the people of America voted. Doesnt that say anything? The people voted!! And they will vote again!! So get over it. He is not politicaly correct or will ever be.. but he is not all that bad compared to the previous corrupted leaders.. well.. get over it.. he will win again.

  2. Ooph now Trump sounds like Trevor Noah’s impression of him. Dude lost whatever remaining marbles he has left 🤦🏽‍♀️

  3. I must say. I'm a "millineal". We're still fairly new to all this.
    As heartless as they say we are…. I feel bad for the man. They say we all have traits of narcissism. I think if he didn't have this inflated sense of self, and all that comes with the disorder… He'd be a danger to himself. That depression would run sooo deep. If he no longer lacked empathy tomorrow. His world would bee turned upside down.

  4. HAHAHA America!
    smdh @ you fucking stupid cunts.
    edited to add; as an Australian I can assure you that we are equally as spastic and incapable of electing decent people

  5. boots, boots alligator boots cheap 2 for one ,,,,,,,,,,, belts, any size belts three for one one size fits all, real snake skin, boots, boots any body

  6. American politics are doomed to fail, true liberty has been forgotten as the ideals of our founding fathers. If the scales between red and blue can't balance itself than we are truly lost, Americans to busy fighting each other whether it's calling each other snowflakes or extremists while the commies are a step ahead laughing at us and when we are vulnerable it'll be like wolves going in for a herd of sheep and we will still be blaming each other for it, division is one of our greatest weakness along with all talk politicians and gullible people and Trump is a huge part of all of this turmoil, our ex allies don't even trust us. This is what we've become america.. liberty prime.. offline.

  7. Google-asses keep pushing this crap site on to my "recommended" so I guess they feel my opinions are needed.
    Trump did nothing wrong. We know that. He'll not be impeached. He'll stomp libtard ass in 2020 and libtards will need bigger boxes of kleenex.
    Just #walk away.

  8. Let’s listen to the political professionals of late night lol pathetic pricks who have ratings because all they have is him

  9. I didn’t know that republicans were so unpatriotic until we witnessed how many could stand by with their mouths closed while this weirdo ruins the country.

  10. The world has never been as strange as it has been since 2016…U really couldn't make it up, it's almost beyond parody

  11. Gawd! This makes me nostalgic for Nixon / Watergate / Saturday-Night Massacre / Margaret Mitchell / Spiro Agnew…
    Even that neurotic, paranoid Nixon had more class than the Orange Idiot: Alligators, snakes and Trump! Oh, my!

  12. He will definitely be elected for a second term this impeachment garbage makes me want to vote now!! Also the people who voted him into office. Keep it up you dumb a** liberals.

  13. That Seth is a real funny guy. I'm gonna tune in on election night so I can watch this guy cry. That should be CLASSIC. and funny

  14. If nothing else, I hope this time shows us just how vulnerable this country is to propaganda. Trump gets away with murder because about 40% of the country believes everything he says and will vote their senators out of office if they disagree. Our judges are political, our news is political, our politicians are influenced by wealthy donors. We're probably fucked, but I do hope that the next president puts laws in place to control the power of a president, no matter how popular that president is with his/her base.

  15. Seth must be one of those deep state butt puppet. We are removing your overlords then we will come for you next. Exspect us. Gitmo awaits you swampers. Short drop quick stop.

  16. Funny how he's not with SNL gets a talk show to what talk to Hollywood then spends most of his time trying to pretend he's a news reporter to you all and what Super funny is that you all are buying this LMAO!

  17. Trump said into the microphone, "I'm a very stable genius". Geez-us, this moron gave us an oxymoron!! He is stupid & unstable!!!

  18. For the first minute of this video I couldn't tell what week this was from. Every gosh darn week starts with "You wouldn't believe….."

  19. Seth enough of you mocking trump i dont believe in those fake liers about him God put him in office and hes gonna become president again for a second time hes not perfect and no one is flawless and theres always been walls look at the great wall of China and other walls even God has a wall thats 120miles high and 120 miles long and no evil wicked people are not in

  20. Everything is fake news, even the videos his on it. So, what's real news? The dame fake news he's on it. Oh lord, help us.

  21. His fight is all for his brand, and his reputation in the history books. He's doing his "I know you are but what am I" routine, which, as we all know, is the strategy of children in a school yard. "I'm rubber, you're glue; whatever you say about me bounces off me and sticks to you" He will not go down gracefully from his lofty throne.

  22. "a new book reports" and then you reference MSNBC…? geezus… You may be able to convince retarded Americans with that but the rest of the world is laughing at you

  23. The reality is if we continue to use the electoral voting system rather than the popular vote this will happen again.

  24. You are all fools. Every one of you are incapable of thinking for yourself. You guys keep regurgitating the same spoon fed propaganda. He is succeeding where Obama completely failed. China, Boarder, Economy… Undeniable, but you worry about some comment about a moat.

  25. As much as I couldn't stand Bush JR, I could listen to him talk without cringing. Trump is the cringiest motherfucker I've ever heard talk.

  26. He is a mental case and in his case, its caused by mental dysfunction and personality disorders, which is a permanent condition. So even as his best self, he is working on the level of a highly dysfunctional person. that is not going to change. Trump was also a well-known criminal and outrageous racist sexist bigot that other progressive countries would never allow to run for their leadership position FOR THAT REASON. Why did the US allow a person with lost court cases in racism and fraud, and known ties to the Russian MOB, be allowed to run for that job?

  27. The meaning of Presidential   :Having a bearing or demeanor befitting a president; dignified and confident.
    "America wants a president who looks presidential"

  28. The meaning of conman: a man who cheats or tricks someone by gaining their trust and persuading them to believe something that is not true.

  29. Seth is such a beta cuck loser. I'll bet he transitions soon. Won't be long now. He needs to do something his ratings are terrible.

  30. Donald Trump has drained the swamp and created a cesspool and we all know what floats in the cesspool and he has the audacity to refer to others as corrupt?

  31. Trump is acting like a nut job. And thinks he actually looks smart. and his conspiracy theories are downright hilarious. Plus, act like Russia's best friend. Then act like he is being tough on Russia. It's like a comedy show about politics.

  32. Trump saying “Ask him a question” and avoiding the original question sounded exactly like the title agents I deal with every day. Entitled, rude, and unwilling to listen to people who aren’t saying what they want to here.

  33. I'd like to see, all those who have rebuttals against Trump and his campaign, to actually put themselves at the forefront of all his decision making and all his actions that hold ground to where he stands.. Please for once, I would enjoy dictation from both sides of the political spectrum, not just from those who have issues with his administration.

  34. The scary thing about trump is he actually believes the poop coming out of his mouth. Thank God I don't live in America anymore 😎

  35. Trump is by himself because the team is all in jail or on their way to jail. He is the last man standing. Next to go. We aren't going to miss him. Trump isn't living in reality.

  36. The amazing amount of stress or any one individual to have the power that he has would put absolutely any and everyone messed up state of mind without a doubt and I'm saying not just in the US but probably every country I would just like to see anyone do better there's not one person that could it's just too much stress and workload for any one individual p e r IOD

  37. Meyers you are a disgrace and you are not funny. So uninformed, but you will get away with your BS but for how long. You actually believe the narrative.
    Trump is infinitely smarter than you.People are waking up and nobody with half a brain believes this media crap.

  38. The reality really hit trumpo at game 5 of the World series at D.C wash.when cameras pointed at him an his people & the crowds booed & said lock him up, which was a reference to what trumpo said of Hilary .well he's realizing he's not in one of his rallys but what people think of him & they strongly suggested he not throw the 1st pitch as it would make him an easy target you know bang bang probably from one of those gang members he pissed off & talked bad about them boy talk about making enemies & his wife looked not so happy to be there either but not to worry he'll more likely get away with all he's done & he'll be re-elected in 2020
