Trump Melts Down on Twitter, Defends Fox News Hosts: A Closer Look

-The president spent the weekend
on an unhinged Twitter rant after dismissing the rising
threat of white nationalism. For more on this, it’s time
for “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ Well, it’s another Monday, and that means once again the
president of the United States had a quiet, normal weekend
full of hard work and sober reflection,
and everyone slept well and woke up refreshed
and optimistic. And I’m just kidding —
His brain is silly putty, and we’re all doomed. -President Trump
spends his weekend lashing out on Twitter. He hit on everything
from the Mueller probe to “Saturday Night Live,”
the late Senator John McCain, and much more. He tweeted 50 times
this weekend, alone — 30 original tweets,
20 retweets, bashing Mueller and the Russia
investigation 14 times, also General Motors, Google, the United Auto Workers,
Hillary Clinton, and now today calling Joe Biden
another low-IQ individual. -I mean, Jesus.
His tweets would make more sense if they were scribbled on
the wall of a psych ward. [ Laughter ] The bottom of every Trump tweet should have, “like,” “retweet,”
or “send me a free Xanax.” This is insane. The president
of the United States tweeted over 50 times
in one weekend. He retweeted Fox News
a bunch of times, attacked John McCain,
General Motors, Google, Hillary, and China
all in one tweet, the Paris Climate Accord,
Obama, the FBI and CIA, Robert Mueller,
“Saturday Night Live,” Hillary again,
John McCain again, called on Fox News to bring back
a host he likes, retweeted Fox News,
attacked Fox News, the United Auto Workers,
General Motors again, retweeted multiple
conspiracy theorists, a bunch of random people, accused Democrats
of trying to steal the election, and in the middle of all that, he also found time to tweet
“Happy St. Patrick’s Day!” [ Laughter, cheers,
and applause ] Which is appropriate since he tweets like he’s
in the middle of a bar crawl. [ As Trump, slurring ]
Hey, man, I love you more than Hillary loves e-mails. [ Normal voice ] I’m sorry, but
you can’t tweet one sane thing in the middle of
50 insane things. It’s like if you walked by one
of those guys in Times Square yelling “The end is near!” and then he turned to you
and calmly said, “Do you know if there’s
a Panera Bread around here?” [ Laughter ] Could use a Panera Bread. I’m a little —
a little peckish. Trump’s behavior this weekend
was so unnerving that George Conway, the husband of white house counselor
Kellyanne Conway and longtime Republican lawyer
in Washington just tweeted, “His condition
is getting worse.” And, you know, it really says
a lot about the state of our politics that we all know
who he’s talking about. You don’t even need to say
Trump’s name anymore. Everyone will know who you’re
talking about if you just tweet, “He’s yelling at the TV again.” Trump’s Twitter tirade
was unhinged on its own, but it’s especially unnerving
that he chose to spend his time attacking everyone
from “Saturday Night Live” to John McCain just days
after the horrific shootings at two mosques in New Zealand. The gunman was a white
nationalist who targeted Muslims and was steeped in a culture
of online extremism. And, yet, when Trump
was asked on Friday about the rising threat
of white nationalism around the world,
he shrugged it off. -Do you see today
white nationalism as a rising threat
around the world? -I don’t really. I think it’s
a, uh, small group of people that have very, very
serious problems. -First of all,
a small group of people that have very serious problems isn’t an answer to the question,
“Is white nationalism a threat?” If anything, it’s answer
to the question, “Who still works
at the White House?” [ Laughter ] Second, of course you
don’t see it as a threat. You called on a ban for Muslims
coming to the U.S., and you’re trying to
build a wall to keep out Mexican asylum seekers. Asking Trump if he sees
white nationalism as a threat is like asking Joe Camel if
he sees tobacco as a threat. [ Gruff voice ] Well, only if
you’re threatened by bold flavor and satisfaction. [ Laughter ] In fact, instead of addressing the rising threat
of white nationalism, Trump spent part of his
deranged Twitter bender over the weekend defending
Fox News host Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson
who were under fire for making racist
and Islamophobic remarks. -Trump tweeting in defense
of his friend, “Bring back Judge Jeanine Pirro. The radical left Democrats working closely with
their beloved partner, the fake news media,
is using every trick in the book to silence a majority
of our country. They have all-out campaigns
against Fox News hosts who are doing too well.” -“The losers all want what you
have, don’t give it to them. Be strong and prosper.
Be weak and die. Stay true.” -“Keep fighting for Tucker and
fight hard for Judge Jeanine. Your competitors are jealous. They all want what you’ve got,
number one.” -The president
of the United States is an angry grandpa
who spends his time yelling at the TV to bring back
his favorite shows. God forbid they ever cancel
“Pawn Stars” or he’ll have a full-on
meltdown. [ As Trump ] Bring back Chumlee,
or I’ll launch a nuke! [ Laughter ] [ Normal voice ] Also,
what do you mean, “Be strong and prosper,
be weak and die”? You sound like you’re about
to ring in the 74th annual “Hunger Games.” [ Laughter ] Also, also… [ Applause ] Also… remember when Trump said
he didn’t have time to watch TV because he’s too busy reading? In case you forgot,
he told reporters, and this is a real quote, “I don’t get to watch
much television primarily because of documents.
I’m reading documents a lot.” [ Laughter ] First of all, you watch
plenty of television. You got mad at a rerun
of “SNL” this weekend — A rerun. You watch more “SNL”
than Lorne Michaels, and that’s not a joke. I have been next to Lorne
when a sketch starts bombing, and that man straight-up
leaves the room. Second,
let’s make something clear — no one who actually reads
documents ever says, “I’m too busy reading
documents.” That’s something a lawyer
in a porno says in the first 30 seconds
of a scene where you’re supposed to think, “Oh, maybe
they’re not going to do it. I hope I didn’t rent a porno
that’s just law stuff. Also, why did I rent a porno? Oh, right, to support
a local business. Don’t you quit, Frank. I know you’re going to
outlast the Internet.” [ Laughter ] Trump wants us all to think
he spends his free time in the study smoking a pipe,
poring over stacks of papers. “Mr. President, we need you to come to your bedroom
and watch TV.” [ As Trump ] Oh, not now, I pray
you leave me to my documents.” [ Laughter ] [ Normal voice ] So, the
president of the United States decided to spend his weekend
defending Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson — in fact,
Pirro was specifically criticized for making
Islamophobic remarks about Minnesota Congresswoman
Ilhan Omar earlier this month. The remarks were so heinous, even Fox News condemned them
and pulled her off the air. -Omar wears a hijab, which according to
the Qur’an 33:59, tells women to cover
so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to
this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence
to Sharia Law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States
Constitution? -The only thing worse than
saying something that offensive is saying it that loud. Why does she always talk like
she has a bad connection? “I said, ‘How are things
at college?'”! [ Laughter ] You know, when you say
something bigoted, you’re supposed to whisper it
in private, right? Jeanine Pirro style would say, [ Whispers ]
“You know who I don’t like? [ Loudly ] Muslims!” [ Laughter ] [ Applause ] Then there’s Tucker Carlson, the bad guy from every
John Hughes movie. It was reported that he made a
series of racist, misogynist, and homophobic comments
on a radio show in the 2000s hosted by a guy named
Bubba the Love Sponge. And let me just say,
I was so confused to hear that Tucker Carlson
went on a show hosted by someone named Bubba the Love Sponge
that I made the same face Tucker Carlson makes
every night on his show. [ Laughter ] Look at him. He always
looks like he’s 30 seconds into an allergic reaction. [ Laughter ] “Were there nuts
in this muffin?” He looks like he’s
three quarters of the way to Rudy Giuliani. [ Laughter ] Now, anyone who has paid
any attention to politics at all knows that Trump has spent years
as a businessman, candidate, and president openly spouting
anti-Muslim bigotry, yet Trump’s aides have been
trying to memory hole his long history of racism
and Islamophobia, like his acting Chief of Staff
Mick Mulvaney. Mulvaney said on Sunday
that he would like us all to ignore the things
that Trump says and focus instead
on what he does. -As a candidate, the president
called for a ban on all Muslims entering the United States.
He said Islam hates us. This kind of language in the
past leads to these questions of why isn’t the president now directly using that megaphone
to condemn it? -Take the — take the words
and put them one category and take the actions
and put them in another. -Oh, he’s the president,
but we have to separate the words from the actions
like we’re taking out the [bleep] recycling? Word. Action. Word. [ Cheers and applause ] Word, but it’s still got a lot
of spaghetti in it, so action.” And I’m sorry, but his
only actions are words. Other than Twitter,
what else does he do? You won’t let us watch him golf,
even though if you did, it would be higher rated
than the Super Bowl. I mean, I would watch. Because there’s so much
that I want to know. Is he actually good, or is he terrible, and everyone
pretends that he’s good? I know he cheats, but how? Is he good at it,
or is he super obvious? Does he make a weird noise
when he swings, and if so, is it the same noise, or does
it change based on the club? Seriously, televise
his next golf game, sell it on pay-per-view, and
build your wall with that money. [ Laughter, cheers,
and applause ] And I’m sorry. I’m sorry, but you don’t get
to put Trump’s words in a different category
unless that category is signs you might be having
a stroke. -Every single car out there, even the really
“expenses” ones… Controlled by large “derners”… 10,000 known or “suspested”
gang members. -Mulvaney then went on to
claim that despite Trump’s long established history
of anti-Muslim bigotry, Trump, himself,
was not Islamophobic. -I hear what folks say, “Oh, Donald Trump said this
during the campaign.” Look at what we’ve done
while we’ve been here. And I don’t think anybody
could say that the president’s
anti-Muslim. -Well, let me try —
The president is anti-Muslim. Yep, that was not hard at all. [ Cheers and applause ] It was easy to say. Certainly wasn’t as hard
as saying “suspested.” [ Laughter ] You know, you’re not very bright for someone who looks like
grown-up Sherman. [ Laughter ] Trump has spent his entire
political career trafficking anti-Muslim bigotry, and now he’s defending people
who’ve done the same. Of course, these guys
have to stick together because they are a —
-Small group of people that have very, very serious
problems. -This has been “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪

    The best President ever! Fake news, fake Late Night Talk Shows! The owners of these station hate President Trump! 98% of news is fake! They are propaganda stations! Do your research and see what liars they are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He has accomplished more in 2 years than the last 2 Presidents! What has he ever said that was racist? He has done more for the black communities than any other President! Kim Kardashian is the only one taking advantage of President Trump's prison release program! He gave back many millions of dollars to Black Colleges! Obama, reduced their funding! His achievements are to many to list! Look them up! I can not believe how many people believe the falsehood of propaganda TV???????

  • If it's so gross why is every network playing it over and over, people out there agree with this stuff and giving her clip air time constantly is also harmful, leave it at she is disgusting and fox news is as well, this sanction is light other networks she would be shamed and run out of town from death threats.

  • Higher approval rating then Obama at this point in his presidency. What happened to your conspiracy? Oh it like everything liberals say is bullshit

  • It is hard to believe the left still doesn t understand why a wall is needed: it is simply to direct people (whoever they are and whatever they are seeking in the desert away from onlooking eyes) towards the designated points of entry, so they can get 100% of the customer service and help available. First come first serv, It is pretty simple.

  • I just purposely scrolled down through 85 videos on here and counted how many childish comedians on here are trying so hard to demonize the president of the United States and its fucking pathetic. People look at how Hollywood is trying to brainwash people into voting the way they want. If you fall for the hate and lies well one day they will be standing on the back of your neck while molesting your children.

  • Seth Meyers is not funny. He can't even be original. It is so unfortunate to watch him fall into the trap just like everyone else around him. He follows the crowd. His time will come soon where his ratings will fall to the floor, and everyone will know exactly why he failed. Just Like Jesse Smollett, there's no difference between the two, one just got caught, and the other one thinks he's funny.

  • Hey Seth Meyers, you and Jesse Smollett have something in common, you both are liars. You twist the truth and only reveal what it is you choose to use to control the minds of your audience. Your knowledge is lacking, and your political agendas is contentious and divisive.

    A man is never more truthful than when he acknowledges himself a liar.
    Mark Twain. …

  • Poor guy is heading down the same path as Al Capone… so desperate a guy who is morbidly obese makes fun of someone who isn’t Also his sons are mentally challenged so attack Special Olympics

  • I love Closer Look – but I have to quit watching because I can't stand looking at or listening to trump. And knowing that there are still a lot of idiots with a vote who think he's wonderful.

  • The only thing that Trump reads is the headline of a story, that's how long his attention span last, not able to comprehend the meat and potatoes of the articles

  • Who scripted Pirro's remarks? "She wears a hijab" and Qur'an 33 colon 29 plus her pronunciation of Shariah law? If you're going to be that loud about something you know nothing about, at least get the syntax and pronunciation right.

  • William Taylor says:

    This didn't hold up well. Janine is back and better than ever, oh and by the way Trump is gonna be your president for another 5 years.

  • David McCarron says:

    Wow! I never realized how great you are,Mr.Meyers! Don't give Trump any ideas! If he wants a wall. Just lie down on his side,or better yet, build a wall around Trump himself. It may take a few billion dollars, but progress is always baby steps.

  • Patrick Boucher says:

    Reason being IMO, twitter did some house cleaning and reduced his account so he tweeted massively like the tweety bird he is, hoping to get some retweets thereby showing the company “See? I really am important!” Sad. So very sad.

  • GOD'S WARNING USE ! that's why we have a crazy president . I see how Christianity is being attacked . there's nothing wrong with GOD only the people , look what they did to Jesus . its a warning !.

    It is solo fun watching the dipshit trump stumbling and bumbling and wandering from wrong idea to irrelevant plans and stupid symbolic nonsense. I am really enjoying his madness becoming more obvious every day. Bye bye donnyboy.

    Trump is a madman.
    The fact that a maniacal threat to ALL of us is the President,and his party supports his actions.
    The Plan set in motion is working better than anybody could figure.

  • Ingeborg Gueldner says:

  • Just so you know, this administration banned travel from those countries the Obama Administration flagged as the 7 most dangerous countries in the world harboring terrorist. On top of which, their passport systems fell offline.

    But if you want, you're more than welcome to travel there. Have fun🤗

  • Why is Pirro such a racist, bigot ?? Her Lebanese ASS is Brown !! Someone should tell her !!
