Republicans, Losing Impeachment Fight, Call Democrats “Dumb”: A Closer Look


-Republicans are standing
by President Trump, even after major election losses and bombshell testimony and, now, they’re
calling Democrats dumb. For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look.” [ Suspenseful theme plays ]
[ Cheering and applause ] Donald Trump is nothing, if not a pioneer
of the English language. You might think
he’s just making up words or doesn’t know how to read,
but that is not the case. You see,
Trump doesn’t make errors. He makes discoveries. He’s like a scholar. [ Laughter ]
Spends all night scouring obscure, 15th-century
medieval texts, looking for previously
unknown words. [as Trump] Eureka!
I found it! Lawmakers used to be called… -Lawmarkers. [ Laughter ]
-And, recently, recently, Dr. Trump has made yet another [ Laughter ]
profound linguistic discovery. He’s invented a new,
powerful word that he loves so much,
he’s now used it twice at two different rallies
in the span of one week. -First, they engineered
the Russia hoax. That was a total hoax. The single greatest lies ever foistered [ Laughter ]
upon the American people. Then, it was Mueller. Remember Mueller,
with that hoax? [ Crowd booing ] The biggest lie ever foistered [ Laughter ]
upon the American people. -That’s right, foistered. [ Laughter ]
He sounds like Daffy Duck trying to say “faster.” [as Daffy] Foister, foister! [ Laughter ]
The Democrats are after us! [ Cheering and applause ]
Trump is surrounded, surrounded by so many sycophants
that no one was willing to tell him
foistered is not a word, [ Laughter ]
so he used it twice. Soon, his underlings are
gonna to start using it, too. [as official]
This administration is moving foister and foister
[ Laughter ] than any administration
in history, but we’re being stonewalled
by Democratic lawmarkers! [ Laughter ] Trump’s not the only linguistic
genius in the GOP this week. GOP Senator Lindsey Graham
went on Fox News twice to talk about the
impeachment inquiry. Now, Graham was asked
about testimony from one of Trump’s
handpicked ambassadors, a guy named Gordon Sondland, who donated $1 million
to Trump’s inaugural committee. This week, Sondland admitted
that there was a quid pro quo to get Ukraine
to investigate the company that employed Joe Biden’s son
Hunter Biden. That company was called Burisma, and, yet,
Graham couldn’t pronounce either the name Burisma
or the name Sondland. -There was concern that
the prosecutor was getting too close to Hunter Biden, that people from Bearmoosa,
whatever the name [ Laughter ]
of the company, a conversation with Sunderland. Now, here’s a question: Why did Sunderland
change his testimony? Was there a connection
between Sunderland and Democratic operatives
on the committee? It makes me incredil–
incredibly suspicious. Why did Sunderland
change his mind? -You think he’s in cahoots
with the Democrats? You’re not even in cahoots
with your own mouth. [ Laughter ]
Trump and Graham sound like two guys leavin’ a bar
at 4:00 am, arguing who should dive home. [as Trump]
Give me the keys. You’re too foistered to drive. [as Graham] No. Why? No. Why? We need a r–
I’ll call Sunderland. [ Laughter and applause ]
He’ll pick us up in his Chevy Buhroozmuh. [ Laughter ] Also, verbal slipups aside, you think one of Trump’s
handpicked ambassadors, a guy who, again, gave him
$1 million to his campaign, is in cahoots
with the Democrats? These guys are such
paranoid freaks, they’re gonna start accusing
everyone of bein’ against them. [as Trump]
Who’s the whistleblower? Is it you, Rudy? What’s that around your neck? [as Giuliani]
Oh, no! Oh, no! I thought this was
my lucky necklace! [ Laughter ] And, yet, despite the fact
that these guys can barely get two-syllable words
out of their own mouths, they’re actually accusing
Democrats of being stupid. Last night, during Trump’s
rally in Louisiana, Senator John Kennedy brought up the impeachment
inquiry and said this… -And you know what our Democrats
friends have done for him?! [ Crowd shouting ] Speaker Nancy Pelosi
is trying to impeach him! [ Booing ] I don’t mean any disrespect, but it must suck
to be that dumb! [ Laughter ]
-I think you did mean some disrespect. I’m sorry, she’s dumb? You don’t get
to call anyone dumb when you sound like a cross between Gomer Pyle
and Foghorn Leghorn. [ Laughter and applause ]
[ Scat sings as Kennedy ] [ Cheering and applause ]
[ Continues scat singing ] [ Cheering ]
I mean, again, I don’t how can you be
so judgmental. The dude you’re standing next to
thinks foistered is a real word [ Laughter ]
and can’t even spell his own name.
That’s real. [ Laughter ] That is from a tweet
Trump wrote himself. You know how you get points
on your SATs just for writing down your name? Trump would be
the first student in history to get a score back that said,
“Maybe college isn’t for you.” [ Laughter ]
That same Kennedy’s also defended Trump
during the impeachment inquiry by saying that, even if there
was a quid pro quo with Ukraine, Trump didn’t intend
to break any laws. Kennedy said in an interview,
“To me, it all turns on intent motive. Did the president have
a culpable state of mind? Based on the evidence
that I see, that I’ve been allowed to see,
the president does not have a culpable state of mind.”
[ Laughter ] That’s because he doesn’t
have any state of mind. [ Laughter ]
His mind is empty. If Trump took a meditation class
and the instructor said, “First, begin
by clearing your mind,” Trump would immediately shout… [as Trump] Done.
I did it. Mind cleared. [ Laughter ]
Empty head cavern. So these guys think
there’s a shadowy conspiracy against them and they
think Democrats are dumb for pursuing impeachment, despite the fact that a majority
of Americans support it. In fact, these guys are so
out of touch with reality that, when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi first announced the impeachment
inquiry in November, Trump himself argued that it
would actually be good for him. -I just heard
that she’d like to impeach and, I mean, if she does that, they all say that’s a positive
for me, from the election. -Oh, do they all say that? [ Laughter ]
When you say they, do you mean your other personalities?
[ Fresh laughter ] [as Trump] Scared Trump
says it’s bad. Sassy Trump says it’s good and Nerdy Trump says bazinga. [ Laughter ] So Trump said impeachment
would actually be good for him politically
and, yet, on Tuesday, Republicans saw major losses
in Virginia; and Kentucky, where a Democrat
won the governor’s race in a state Trump won
by 30 points. Now, to be clear, Kentucky’s
incumbent Republican governor, Matt Bevin, was one of the most unpopular governors
in the country. He fought with teachers
and tried to gut Medicaid. Overturned an executive order
restoring felon voting rights and he tried to implement
work requirements for Medicaid recipients. And I would just like to say,
if we’re gonna start instituting work requirements
for federal programs, maybe we should start
with the presidency. I mean, Trump is always golfing.
[ Laughter ] He never works. He’s like
that friend everyone has who’s always posting photos
from exotic locations, but when you ask him what he
does for a living, he’s like, “Uh, well, I’m workin’ on an app
that tells you which Starbucks
has the best bathrooms. [ Laughter ]
Yeah, it’s called — it’s called Starbutts. [ Laughter and applause ] So Bevin’s defeat —
[ Applause ] Bevin’s defeat was a rejection,
not just of Trump, but of the GOP agenda on issues
like healthcare and education. But the race was also
very much about impeachment. In fact, a source close
to Trump even admitted the GOP losses on Tuesday
were a bad sign, both for Trump’s
reelection campaign and the impeachment inquiry. -A source close
to the White House told CNN the results were totally bad. Kentucky and Virginia
signaled to the GOP they are underestimating
voter intensity against Trump and it could be terrible
for them next year. Bad omen for impeachment. -You guys really needed an omen to tell you things
were not looking good? [ Laughter ]
Republicans are like
Ancient Egyptians trying to predict the seasons. “The air is cooling.
What could it mean? We must look to the stars
for a sign.” [ Laughter, cheering,
and applause ] Ammit. And, what’s worse —
[ Applause ] what’s worse for Republicans is they have
no credible defense. They’re flailing.
In fact, yesterday, an MSNBC reporter caught up to Republican
Congressman Mark Meadows, a staunch Trump ally. Meadows was desperate to prove
that Republicans were not losing
the impeachment fight. -Hold on.
We have Mark Meadows right here. Congressman Meadows,
can we talk live? So he’s walking by right now,
but Republicans are really struggling
to defend -I’ll talk to you.
-the president — Okay. Great. -We’re not struggling
on anything. -Okay, so Congressman —
-So, the Republicans are not struggling on anything. [ Laughter ]
-He’s like a guy who’s too proud to admit he doesn’t
know how to swim. [as Meadows]
I’m not drownin’. Do not throw me
a life preserver. I love the taste of salt water. I think I can see
my grandmother. [ Laughter ] Also, can we hear that clip
again, with the tire screeching? -Congressman Meadows,
can we talk live? So he’s walking by right now,
but Republicans are really struggling to defend
[ Tire screeches ] [ Laughter ]
the president — Okay. Great. -Struggling on anything.
-Okay. -And, now,
[ Applause ] [ Cheering ]
even Trump’s own appointees — [ Applause ] Trump’s own appointees
are admitting there was a quid pro quo
with Ukraine, so Republicans are changing
their argument again. Yesterday, Lindsey Graham,
the guy who couldn’t even pronounce the name
of one of the key witnesses, said Trump couldn’t
have orchestrated a quid pro quo with Ukraine
because he is too incompetent. -What I can tell you about the
Trump policy toward the Ukraine: It was incoherent. It depends on who you talk to. They seem to be incapable
of forming a quid pro quo. -So they can’t be criminals
because they’re stupid. [ Laughter ]
It is not good when your defense is also a confession. No version of that is good. Either they broke the law
or they’re morons. It’s like if a cop
pulled you over and said, “Do you know the speed limit?” And you responded,
“Of course not. I’m too drunk to read the sign.” [ Laughter ] So I guess what Graham
is saying is they would have committed
the crime, but they were too… -Dumb! [ Laughter ]
-This week should put to rest any speculation that impeachment
should somehow help trump. It should also reminds us
that the GOP agenda, on issues like healthcare,
education, and voting rights, is deeply unpopular. I don’t know what
will happen in 2020, but, so far,
Trump’s plans have been… -Foistered. [ Laughter ]
-This has been “A Closer Look.” ♪♪
[ Cheering and applause ]

    Look man, public speaking is difficult and I know you biased satirists just love to pick on every strange sounding word he says but at least google the word before claiming its not a word that he only said twice. Also I think its really sad that the political parties fight against each other. If they are busy fighting each other there is simply no way the government can do its job.

  2. I can't believe EVERY Democrat, independently, read that transcript and came up with the same conclusion. Replace the name Trump, with Obama, in this situation, and see if you come up with the same result. Political hit job and supported by the left leaning media.
    This is a farce with an appropriate out come.

  3. You know what scares me? Back in 2016 the press. Late night talk shows and SNL made fun of trump yet he still won.

  4. Actually if we don't see any new better candidates entering the 2020 race Trump will win for sure, none of the current runners can beat Trump! Too sad…

  5. Every time I uncover my eyes to see what's going on in Politics, I immediately regret it… Wake me when the nightmare's over.

  6. Fake News all Scripted & Fabricated Globalist funded Propaganda MSM all parroted to you by their paid for Ventriloquist Dummies like Seth.

  7. culpable state of mind – if you don't have one you can never be convicted of a crime no matter what you do………………. Dumb dose not even begin to describe this XD

  8. MIGHTY TRUMP Has done MORE than ALL the other SPINELESS USA PRESIDENT at MAGA He will WIN in 2020 EASY there's no OPPOSITION They are a JOKE

  9. Why is youtube throwing this in my face? THIS SUCKS. Not funny, tin can laughter (no live audience).
    And the same BULLSHIT about impeachment. Talk about the REAL crimes of Trump, such as staging a COUP in Bolivia.
    Fukc off americans, we've had enough of you.

  10. Wait, what happened to all the Russian collusion Evidence, the Mueller report, etc?? You only spent 2 1/2 years accusing him of treason, then moved on to a phone call? hahahahahahaha Delusional snow flakes melting. Impeachment with election coming!? hahahahaha This is entertaining!!

  11. I am not even a Trump supporter, but do Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert have ANY original jokes? You know, jokes that are NOT about the low-hanging fruit that is Trump…..To be fair, though, both of these hacks work for networks owned and operated by the military industrial complex….so they HAVE TO be sell-out company men.

  12. Still your President until 2020.
    Possibly again until 2025.

    Have a nice cry, Hillary supporters. Hell, you piss and moan about everything else.

    Why don't you go out there and hit the pace car while you're at it?

  13. Jeffrey Epstein never killed himself and that is why the Democrats rushed into impeachment proceedings based on 2nd and 3rd hand rumours.

  14. These GOP sycophants, including Mark Randall Meadows (born July 28, 1959) is an American politician serving as the U.S. representative for North Carolina's 11th congressional district since 2013. A member of the Republican Party, he chaired the Freedom Caucus from 2017 to 2019.  Get with the program Carolinians, get this POS and Lindsey out of the office and join the 20th century, since the 21st century might be too big of a leap.

  15. God those gullible people believing anything he says at this point. No excuse except for being low IQ or special needs and not able to reason. Imagine this crowd drives cars, raise children. It’s scary.

  16. The bird sounding guy would be the last man I allow to speak for me. No beta male will ever have my glory. Sit your peacock ass down.

  17. It is getting too easy to make fun of 44.5 and I wonder how that makes his voters feel and I don't mean the real deplorables, but the republican voters, who voted for him out if principal Orr bc they actually believed him. Now does 44.5 make it easy to make fun of, but a bit unfair. Calling him illiterate, bc he tweeted his name wrong, that's a typo, not illiteracy. I dont know the right way to talk to his supporters, they're so happy in their rightious indignation, as if we started this fight. Trump started by attacking immigrants and that a as just his announcement speech, from then on he attacked and we didn't take it anymore. The times of going high is over (Michele Obama). Getting high feels better, lol, resisting, fighting, speaking up, protest, March, get educated in our political system, why are we where we are today, is it Obama's fault, or did the Repugs, screw things up, with Iraq, again with Iraq 🇮🇶 and yes, Obama made things worse in that part if the world, but war is dirty and 1 president doesnt make or break that. He was sending drones to kill the enemy, costing civilian lives also, but Trump already send more drones, than Obama did in his whole tenure and didn't he promise to make an end to these wasteful wars? Yet, he gave trillions to the military complex and he has bombed more civilians than Obama ever did, what a tyrant, lawless excuse of a President. I'm not laughing as much as I used to, it duesnt erase the deaths of these caged children and those who get there, are scared for life, unless they get the tufgt help, which is impossible to check, these kids can be anywhere by now, hopefully with family, but sometimes there is none. Yeah Seth Meyer, keep cracking jokes, I'm not not laughing, but it's a moment, till I see or hear something else this man has said or done. I hope 2020 will bring us forward and change how Washington is run, that's why I love Bernie and Tulsi a lot, she endorsed him last time, Hillary hasn't forgotten, she got spunk, a woman of color, a veteran, first congresswoman from a Hawaiian tribe, forgot the name and she's pro Medicare, against these regime changes and wasteful wars. I know Bernie probebly already has a VP in mind, otherwise I would live it to be her, the only candidate, who appeals to the left and in dependants and even some conservatives, the never Trumpers. According to a study, the ppl who vote for her, have Bernie as second choice, he dies well in the pills🤔weird how msm is ignoring that fact. On every issue, he polls highest, he has the most change of bearing Trump, but the msm is corporate media, who still thinks the country needs a moderate to win, haven't they learned from. Last time why did we get Trump, coz Washington duesnt work for us and Bernie wants our help in changing that and not just by voting, but by joining his movement and get personally involved on the issue that you feel is most important, or all of them, but we need to be heard in Washington and that won't work, by just sitting behind a computer screen, like I do now. You really have to get in the game and make your representatives hear what you constituents want from them, coz it's you they work for, not some corporate interest. But I'm going on and on, AAGGH, TRUMP DRIVES ME CRAZY 🤪

  18. So if has been found out that ghd whistleblower has set up a GoFundMe account while still employed by the cia and has raised over a quarter of million dollars so far from anonymous sources. Democrats are dumb for giving their money to an obvious hoax. Lmfao.

  19. I dont wanna say much but if theres a fight between a republican and democrats the democrats always start to shout and get angry

  20. I feel like I’m watching Jeepers Creepers, where the characters were so stupid and inept I ended up rooting for the monster. Except here there is no monster, just the Constitution.

  21. I can see this page is full of people that want democrats as presidents so we can lose our freedom lose all of our guns and be slaves What a bunch of idiots but then again what should you expect America's become a puss I whipped version of itself with people who have dicks between their legs but still don't know whether there a guy or a girl this world is becoming ridiculous Give it another few years and all you Idiots Will be calling the cops on somebody because they sneezed next to you with out permission…wellthat's all I got to say is if the democrats win the presidency don't come crying to us republicans when you lose all your freedom and become slaves along with the rest of us

  22. Another brain impaired late night talk show host. Have you seen the ratings numbers for these clowns? They've sunk even lower than Trump's approval ratings.

  23. Foister is a word… It means to falsify or impose. For something to be foisted (not foistered, perhaps a grammatical error, but not much of one considering the verb to foister) unto the American people, that means it has been falsified into belief.

  24. His paternal grandfather was an Ashkenazi Jewish emigrant, from Kalvarija near Marijampolė in modern-day Lithuania.[5][6][7] Despite this ancestral connection, Meyers does not consider himself Jewish.[

  25. Sondland was born in Seattle, Washington, the son of Frieda (Piepsch) and Gunther Sondland.[57] He is married to Katherine Durant, who is the founder and managing partner of Atlas/RTG, a holding company with a portfolio of shopping centers throughout Oregon.[citation needed] Sondland is Jewish.[16][18]

  26. When the only thing you got on thies guys are verbal slip ups.🤣 Trump is doing an amazing job and theres nothing you can say that proves that wrong. I will admit Trump is not the most powerful speaker, but he dose a damn good job at running this country.

  27. He is saying hoister, which means manipulator, or someone behind a control board, Operator, this is a term use in construction sites.

  28. Seth, you are a hack. If the best you can do is spend all your nights attacking the president, you have lost your talent. I remember when you used to actually be a funny guy; now you are just a lesser Bill Maher.

  29. Impeachment my arse. I am willing to bet that he will not be impeached. Laws are for poor and middle class. Billionaires get to do whatever they want with impunity. The tragedy here is that much like a "useful idiot" our public continue to vote for them. It is the classic definition of insanity.

  30. I hate trump. But the word FOISTER is actually a real word. He may not have used it exactly correct, but he was pretty close.

  31. It's no conspiracy it's really simple Sonderland DIDN'T WANT TO GO TO JAIL FOR LYING for that old RACIST LUNATIC CON MAN in the WH…that's why you old racist dumb-ass!

  32. I love how history respect itself. Everyone do know if the Democrat lose the impeachment process the power will be transfer to the Republican. Look at the impeachment process during the President Clinton year and you will understand because I remember during that year how that happen.

  33. Mr Seth Meyers…I'm not a dem..
    I'm pro trump… But the reason I watch your show is because although you make alot of fun out of these guys you actually don't look like you have a hatred for them. The others talk show hosts it's clear it's all very personal to them and One can see their hatred.. Now it is written that a man that hates cannot right govern. You in fact would make a better politician than the entire democratic party.. because it's very clear that hatred is driving them.. you on the other hand seem not to have that hate. That's why I watch your program and really couldn't stop laughing at the tire screeching clip.

  34. Yes, yes impeachment would help trump. And jail would elevate him to glorious leader. Good news Lindsey has dementia n the mothership is returning for steven

  35. This is a coup by criminals in our government.They will not lose total control of you.But they will lose in the Senate.Trump has not done one thing illegal is why they are totally loading the deck.The Democrats are the most corrupt politicians in our history,they have done absolutely nothing for the country in three years but try to pad their pockets.

  36. "Losing Impeachment Fight" ? Buhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha ! Any odds any amount of money that Trump will never be impeached as if impeachment is anything in itself. First evidence then investigate. At least the 2nd assumption of a crime going into an investigation of wrong doing. Never before has this happened to anyone yet to a POTUS. Fk the insane leftards of Leftardia !

  37. Words are not violence and anyone that thinks they are are fktards of the worst degree of crap stains. The right does not try and stop the left from speaking. Only a POS tries to violate the rights of others in the arena of politics. Politics are of ideas ONLY and never violent. Bullies are violent just like the current Cult of Leftardia.If stopping hate speech and history is the excuse than the right is justified in bringing tanks to protests. Left leaning governments were the number one murdering entity in the 20th century. The Soviet Union, Cuba, China, Cambodia, Venezuela today, Nazi Germany. All leftist governments that murdered their own disarmed citizens that conveniently had no 2nd Amendment and few guns.
