Trump Is Becoming More Erratic and Working Less: A Closer Look

-Every day, Donald Trump
continues to prove that he’s an increasingly
erratic President who’s unfit for his job. And now he’s apparently
working even fewer hours and neglecting urgent issues. For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ] Since the publication
of “Fire and Fury,” the explosive book about his
first year in the White House, President Trump has been
battling the growing impression that even his closest aides believe him to be dangerously
unfit for office. And they obviously
have a very strong case since Trump knows virtually
nothing about the job. But you would think that a man
who ran on a platform of pure patriotism and who spent
months lecturing athletes about respecting
the national anthem would, at the very least,
know the words to the anthem. [ Laughter ] And yet Trump seemed lost as he tried to sing along
to the anthem before last night’s National
College Football Championship. -♪ Oh, say, can you see ♪ ♪ By the dawn’s early light ♪ [ Laughter ] ♪ What so proudly we hailed ♪ ♪ As the twilight’s
last gleaming ♪ ♪ Whose broad stripes
and bright stars ♪ ♪ Through the perilous fight ♪ [ Laughter ] -Oh, my God.
Trump sings the national anthem the way the rest of us
sing “Despacito.” [ Laughter ] ♪ Despacito ♪ ♪ Muh, na-na-na-na-na, muh-ito ♪ [ Laughter ] Seriously,
how can you be President and not know the words
to the national anthem. That’s like Peyton Manning
not knowing the words to the Nationwide jingle. ♪ Nationwide
is somethin’ somethin’ ♪ [ Laughter ] Now just two weeks
into the new year, Trump faces a series
of urgent tasks that deserve every ounce
of his attention, from keeping the government open
to protecting DACA recipients to fully funding the Children’s
Health Insurance Program to providing electricity
to millions of Puerto Ricans who are still without it. And yet he’s apparently
spending even less time working than he did before. The website Axios obtained
Trump’s private schedule, not the public ones that
his staff puts out, and found… [ Laughter, cheers, applause ] I’m sorry. He starts his day at 11:00 a.m.? [ Laughter ] Is he the president or
a lunch waiter at Olive Garden? [ Laughter ] All I do is make fun of him, and I still
have to be here at 9:00 a.m. [ Laughter ] Just take Trump’s
private schedule from this week as an example
of how little he works. Oh, my God. Trump might be
our first President who works so little, he technically qualifies
for unemployment. [ Laughter, cheers, applause ] It’s like Trump
isn’t even the president. He’s more like Mike Pence’s
out-of-work friend who has to crash with him
for a while till he gets back on his feet. He’s the Dupree
of the white House. [ Laughter ] Deep cut.
That’s a deep cut. Trump, of course, not only
defers all major policymaking to his staff
and Republicans in Congress, he’s also so fragile and erratic
that he needs those same people to go on TV
and lavish praise on him, as Senior Policy Adviser
Stephen Miller did on Sunday in this now infamous interview
with CNN anchor Jake Tapper. -The reality is, the President
is a political genius who won against a field of
17 incredibly talented people, who took down the Bush dynasty, who took down
the Clinton dynasty. All these so-called political
geniuses in Washington, whether it be
the big lobbying firms or — -The only person
who has called himself a genius in the last week
is the President. -Which happens
to be a true statement. A self-made billionaire
who revolutionized reality TV. -And I’m sure he’s watching and
he’s happy that you said that. -I would be with the President
on a campaign plane with a rally in 20 minutes,
and he would be able — -You’ve already
made this point, Stephen. -He would be able
to come up with material in the blink of an eye. -You’ve already said that. -A self-made billionaire,
revolutionized reality TV, and tapped
into something magical that’s happening
in the hearts of this country. -Ugh.
[ Laughter ] I’d say Stephen Miller has
a boner, but he already is one. [ Laughter, cheers, applause ] Seriously,
he looks like someone slapped a couple of
googly eyes on a penis. [ Laughter ] Seriously, is there anyone
creepier than Stephen Miller? He wasn’t born.
He just appeared after someone read an Edgar Allen Poe story
into a cracked mirror. [ Laughter and applause ] Also, can we go back to the first part of that clip
for a second? -The President
is a political genius, who won against a field of
17 incredibly talented people, who took down the Bush dynasty, who took down
the Clinton dynasty. -There’s nothing worse than someone
who pronounces it “din-iss-tee.” [ Laughter and applause ] Miller claims — Miller claims he’s in touch
with the working class, but he pronounces words
like a British dandy. What’s next?
You gonna tell us Trump checks his “mo-bile”
for this “shed-yule” so he can have some “privicy”
during his “le-zure” time? [ Laughter ] To borrow a phrase
Stephen Miller might use, Stephen Miller is a wanker. [ Laughter ] With googly eyes.
[ Cheers and applause ] Obviously, with googly eyes. Also, can I just say,
I’m tired of this talking point Trump and his toadies
keep repeating, that he beat a field of 17
incredibly talented people? He did not. Let’s not forget
the field he ran against included a narcoleptic,
a malfunctioning robot, a sentient butter sculpture, and a guy who was almost
suffocated by his own hoodie. [ Laughter ] And when Trump sycophants
aren’t available to go on TV and stroke his ego,
Trump does it himself. Yesterday, he flew to Tennessee
to sign an executive order and speak
to the American Farm Bureau. And at one point, he needlessly
lashed out at the media and told the crowd
to look up his Twitter account. -I will sign two presidential
orders to provide broader and faster
and better Internet coverage. Make sure you look up
@RealDonaldTrump, right? -I’m sorry, but it just
strikes me as unpresidential to plug your
social-media accounts. He sounds like the end
of a YouTube video. “If you thought
this speech was dope, please like and subscribe
for more sick content.” [ Cheers and applause ] One of the details Trump’s aides
have repeated about him to show that he’s mentally unfit
for his job is his penchant for repeating the same handful
of stories over and over, and yet again yesterday,
he rambled on about his 2016 election victory
and reminded the crowd of his position on guns. -We’re restoring the rule of law and protecting
our cherished 2nd Amendment. [ Laughter ] -Why are you
making the hand motion? They know
what you’re talking about. The way Trump abuses
the 1st Amendment makes me want to take advantage
of the 21st Amendment. [ Laughter, cheers, applause ] Trump is like a guy
playing charades who doesn’t realize
he’s not allowed to speak. “Movie, two words —
Star, Wars. Boom! We did it!
That was so fast! [ Laughter ] But it isn’t just that Trump
is growing increasingly erratic. He’s also becoming more lawless. After repeatedly hectoring
his Justice Department to investigate Hillary Clinton,
it seems the DOJ is now doing exactly that. And on top of that, yesterday,
the Trump administration announced that it was cruelly
ending the humanitarian program that allowed 200,000 people
from El Salvador to live here for more than a decade. He’s working fewer hours and neglecting the basic
responsibilities of his job, and yet he’s still
desperate for praise. In his speech yesterday,
he railed on about the election and his
administration’s attempts to roll back regulations and insisted to the audience
that they were happy he won. -We’re streamlining regulations
that have blocked cutting-edge biotechnology, setting free our farmers to
innovate, thrive, and to grow. Oh, are you happy
you voted for me. You are so lucky
that I gave you that privilege. -Ugh.
[ Audience groans ] He’s so —
He’s so gross. I never thought I’d say this,
but bring back Stephen Miller. [ Laughter ] This has been “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ]

  • dude. i was thinking, "this is bad, how much mor can we tak?" then i looked at the date, this is 6 months old. millers been out for a little bit right? i try not to watch anymore

  • TheRealEvilkitten3 says:

    "you are so lucky i gave you that privilege" guess scaramucci was right – people really do try to suck their own cocks.

  • There is no excuse for not knowing the National Anthem. I am Canadian and our stupid national anthem was changed three times I think. Twice for the French, once for the feminists and who knows what else. I just sing the original version. But I also know the English National Anthem, Yours. Yes! Yours!! And your own President can't sing it. What a shame! What an embarrassment. If I was an American, I would demand that Trump step down, just for that. And then I hear he is working even less? Fire him! But he does not do anything and everyone knows it and then his followers? These people are like Amway sales people. Does no onr see it?

  • Tyrannohamstersaurus says:

    "Self-made" millionaire? What happened to his parents fortune? He was born with a silver spoon up his ass.

  • Technically qualifies for unemployment….. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • I love how the same 2.5K Trump supporters keep clicking on these videos (and Colbert and Oliver) and clicking the "Thumbs Down" button. Seriously, nothing better to do with your time?

  • This is why you don't have a man in his 70's as President. It is absolutely ridiculous, that two elderly people in their 70's were the only real choices. The Democrats were equally foolish. I'm not surprised that he starts his days around 11am (with lunch at 12pm or 1pm). Before he was even voted in as president, David Cay Johnston (a Pulitzer Prise winner who has studied Trump for over 30 years) actually said that he barely works, and that his work day would be a five hour day, including a two hour lunch. Basically, Grampa watches TV and bitches on twitter, while the people around him take care of policy. And that Stephen Miller is creepy and evil. It's unbelievable, that among the other Republicans he beat out, Trump was the best choice. I actually understand that one of the other ones wanted a wall between Canada and the US. For what? To stop all the Americans from running over to Canada (and there's been a lot)?? If you think Canada would pay for that, you're fucking nuts (although any Americans who ACTUALLY believed that Mexico would pay for the wall between the US and Mexico ARE nuts – it shows how incredibly out of touch Americans actually are; they ACTUALLY believe that they rule the world – of course, only Americans say that). Congrats U.S. you have a shockingly arrogant president who embodies every negative aspect that Americans have been known for, and he doesn't know the words to the national anthem, nor does he know how to even colour in his own flag (he ACTUALLY coloured in a blue strip – SMH). And the absolute narcissistic arrogance to say, "You are so lucky I gave you the privilege [of voting for him]." Wow, I get disgusted every time I see this person. And the Americans who still back him, and ACTUALLY believes this idiot is intelligent???? Wow – that is what happens when you have a country that is so uneducated. So what do they do? Let's cut education even more, than bring in a voucher system, that will give public schools only about 1/3 of the money they have been getting. Wow! Let's hope the Democrats take over Congress and as much of the Senate as they can.

  • And he calls himself a true patriot. Trump doesn't even know the words to the Star Spangled Banner or even God Bless America he just swings his body around like a bored and spoiled nine years old child who just wants cause some with his other wealthy friends.

  • Frederick Green says:

    Oh you poor poor liberals you can dish it out and you do but you can't take it you're like a spoiled brat unbelievable no I believe it Trump is winning and we're not getting tired of it yet so just sit back relax and see how someone who knows what they're doing can benefit this country and make it so much better you remember Obama and how our new reality was everything is going to be bad and there was nothing we could do about and we were just going to have to accept it well that's if Hillary would have won she would have continued but STOP , TRUMP WON and he's kicking ass and the Republicans are going to kick ass in November and Trump will be reelected in 2020 another 4 years another possible Supreme Court appointee then Pence will run and then a he'll be in there for eight more years with maybe one or two more Supreme Court Justice appointees need a tissue?

  • RictusJervis M86 says:

    I'm handing out an initiative plan. It says right on it, "Get your own initiative." Only Captains allowed. This army had better run itself! You're going to find out where initiative plans lead…we don't destroy the Captain. We cancel the initiative plan. These are Captain feeders. What the hell are these Peter Pans on the Captain? Do think your passing the resolve test? This is called "the trail of manuals.'. Let's find out where orders versus initiative leads…you dirty vamps.

  • It seems to me that the Democrats just have no sense of humor at all and they're losing a lot of more intelligent people because of their stupidity and their name calling and acting like little children. But their humor is so pathetic. I am hearing this from Democrats by the way something needs to be done for this party to survive it's getting weaker everyday.

  • "You are so lucky that I gave you the privilege". I have watched a lot of tRump videos, but this is the first time I have actually groaned out loud in disgust at his egomania.

  • I'm Irish living in Ireland and thanking God. Trump couldn't bestow the privilege upon me to vote for him. Gag. I feel sorry for America for enduring this gobshite

  • You Americans are sooooooo lucky he gave you the opportunity to vote for him- can't ya just FEEL it? Go on, tell us how lucky you feel folks…

  • So funny Seth, gawd I hate Trump. That's the problem Trump most Americans didn't vote for you, every time you open your mouth you show why we didn't vote for you.

  • Omg! Can Johnnie not read?!

    That would explain so much! Inanka and Jerod et al. are his crutches! The TV watching, how he can only manage very short phrases etc.! Holy crap!

  • Is it any wonder miller's family stomachs him no better than a steady diet of food poisoning. He's a one man storm surge of social pestilence.

  • If we decide to draw and quarter them, we can raffle chances for the winners getting to tie each of trump and miller's limbs to the four (4) horse's. A 5th winner gets to crack the whip sending them to the 4 winds.

  • Trump has no respect for OURrepresentitives in Washington but demands thatour foot ball players  ignore thei responsibility toprotesrt the murder of pedestrians and children and salute a song about bombs bursting in air.

  • Steven Miller gives Millers a bad name, the same way Trump gives us Geminis a bad name. & Sarah Sanders gives WOMEN a bad name.

  • know what I don't get..?.. theres ppl that voted for him JUST cuz hes rich & they thought him being rich made America rich. but if America has all these billions of dollars, in all these pots of money all over the place, I don't think that's considered to be a poor country. sounds like we WERE doing just fine… til HE came along that is 😛

  • Don't get me wrong, Seth. I love the show, and I think you're awesome. But you used to deliver the catch phrase "for more on this, it's time for a closer look" with so much more spirit.
    I still think you're awesome. Just lacking a little of the spirit you had in the beginning.

    Understandable, you work hard.

  • Aperson Thatsnice says:

    Omg your so lucky I gave you that privilege…. sounds like anyone’s last x husband! Ok boys a girls let’s say it together..,,Can we say N•A•R•C•I•S•S•I•S•T!!!

  • Marlene Mounce says:

    Trump has likely spent more than he has earned in his life and was desperate to get out of financial and legal difficulties. His immunity won’t last and he WILL go down.

  • I have to admit I’m starting to feel a bit awkward watching him being made a fool. But hey, like it or not, he signed up for this.
    Can’t wait to see him in his orange jumpsuit 😈

  • And let me add, The only saving grace to the degree of anger Trump instills in me is the depression I feel after listening to him which counters it.

  • Wow he's the worste President in US history I've never seen a president this damn stupid he makes Bush sound like a rocket scientist I never thought that was possible 🤣 Hey Trump If I wanted to hear from an asshole id fart or call Jr or Eric 😂

  • Marlene Mounce says:

    He figures since he’s not getting paid since he opened big mouth about giving his checks away. He thinks the world owes him a living but not the poorest of the poor. They can’t even have a crumb.

  • Why is it that, " A Special Kind of Stupid " is so evident in 30% of Americans still supporting the Bufoon-In-Chief ?

  • Shaheda Begum says:

    OMG, just before Ramadan I nearly ripped my belly LAUGHING 😝 off ohh shyte. Trump could be coming with guns lol 😂.

  • He works less than a disabled person. No offense to disabled people.  This feeble mind physical inadequate body, is so soft lazy out of shape over fed under nourished. I would not be surprised if he doesn't have nap time story time snack time with 15 minute breaks every hour upon the hour most likely pays out for somebody to scratch his back before he goes to sleep.  Unfortunately he is on the same schedule basically as most of the Republicans that have ever been or ever will be.

  • Neems Crassidy says:

    Not knowing the National Anthem is one thing…I'll eat my left hand if this monstrosity can answer more than one question on the CITIZENSHIP TEST correctly. Same goes for his entire family, his porn actress Russian gift bride included. SHAME!

  • what is really sad is that this egotistical megalomaniac who is undoubtedly a paranoid, pathological liar yet a patriot….. and so you choose him as your leader.
    sums up the American psyche !
    thanks….. so tremendous,

  • "Make sure you look up @RealDonaldTrump, right?"
    I laughed so hard. "Political genius" I don't think so but comic genius for sure.
