Bernie Wins New Hampshire, Trump and Barr Protect Roger Stone: A Closer Look

Bernie Wins New Hampshire, Trump and Barr Protect Roger Stone: A Closer Look

-Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary,
making him the clear front-runner
for the Democratic nomination, as President Trump bullied
the Justice Department into going easy on one
of his convicted henchmen. For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look.” [ Suspenseful theme plays ]
[ Cheering and applause ] There were two huge developments
happening simultaneously on split screens last night:
On the one hand, a crisis in the
Justice Department created by President Trump;
and, on the other, the Democratic primary
in New Hampshire; and we all had to do our best
to follow both at the same time, which is just how
our lives are now. We’re like bank security guards watching five different
screens at once. [ Laughter ]
On one screen, there’s a bunch
of customers waiting patiently in line to complain about how
they’re bein’ ripped off and, on the other four,
there are dudes staring directly into the camera, smiling
and holding giant bags of cash. [ Laughter and applause ] First, Democrats held
their second contest of the primary season
in New Hampshire last night and, whatever else
you could say about it, it was honestly
just a relief to move on from the mess in Iowa,
where the final results were screwed up by mathematical
errors and an app that crashed that was made by a company
called Shadow. [ Laughter ]
In fact, the final results are still not confirmed. A hundred years from now,
after hordes of zombies supercharged by climate change
have ravaged the country, [ Laughter ]
a lone survivor will wander
into an abandoned barn in Iowa and find a note carved
into the wall that says, “Still too close to call.” [ Laughter and applause ] Honestly, it was just a relief
to finally see people voting in actual polling stations,
as opposed to whatever the hell was goin’ on in Iowa.
[ Laughter ] I’m sorry, but this is
not an election. These people look like
the burnout kids who had to sit out of volleyball because they purposely
forgot their gym clothes. [ Laughter and applause ]
“Sorry, Coach. We’re so bummed we can’t learn
how to bump, set, and spike! [ Laughter and applause ]
The only thing we spike is heroin, Coach! [ Laughter and applause ] [laughing] I’m sorry
I yelled at you, Coach.” [ Laughter ] [laughing] Basically,
what we know about Iowa is that Bernie Sanders
won the popular vote; Pete Buttigieg slightly
edged him out in the delegates, thanks to obscure rules; and Elizabeth Warren
came in third. And the Iowa Democratic Party
is having trouble keeping things together. In some cases,
together literally. The chair of the Iowa Party held
a press conference on Monday to update the media on the
results, and this happened. -The sheets are signed,
not only by the precinct chair and the precinct secretary — [ Clattering ]
[ Laughter ] Uh.
-Oh, man. Did you use an app
for your podium, as well? [ Laughter ] Was the app called Metaphor? [ Laughter ] You can tell. [ Cheering and applause ] You can tell that we had moved on from Iowa
to New Hampshire because it seemed like
virtually every candidate showed up to greet
their supporters with the local delicacy boxes
of Dunkin’ Donuts, [ Laughter ]
and that includes
Senator Amy Klobuchar, who repeatedly bragged about how many Dunkin’
locations she’d been to. -What are you gonna do
to solidify your place in the top three? -Well, Joy, we’re doing it
right now. I go everywhere. I’ve been in Dunkin’ Donuts. I’ve gone
to Dunkin’ Donuts. And it feels like, for me,
that it’s a fresh start here. I got to go to every
Dunkin’ Donut I could find. [ Laughter ]
-That’s no small feat. I’m from New Hampshire
and, as I recall, every third building
is legally required to contain a Dunkin’ Donuts. [ Laughter ]
-Although, I have to say, when your big highlight
about visiting New Hampshire is that you got to go
to every Dunkin’ Donut, you definitely sound like
an out-of-towner. That’s like goin’
to New York and saying, “We really got
to experience the culture. We went to all
the Duane Reeds!” [ Laughter and applause ] [ Fresh laughter ] But, hey, the strategy clearly worked
for Klobuchar because she finished in a strong
third, with 20% of the vote. And, while Andrew Yang
dropping out means the remaining Democratic
field is all-white, it’s pretty amazing that the top
three finishers in New Hampshire were a Jewish
Democratic socialist, a gay veteran,
and a woman from Minnesota whose next coffee
is probably free. [ Laughter and applause ] But the big takeaway — [ Applause ] The big takeaway, of course,
was that Bernie Sanders is now the clear front-runner
for the Democratic nomination with his win in New Hampshire and his current lead
in many national polls. And you can tell that he senses
his place as a front-runner because, in New Hampshire,
he started to aiming his fire squarely at Donald Trump. -We are going to defeat
the most dangerous president in the modern history
of America: Donald Trump. [ Cheering ]
The American people, no matter what their
political views may be, are sick and tired of a president who is
a pathological liar. [ Cheering and applause ] Who is running
a corrupt administration. [ Cheering and applause ] Who is a bully
and a vindictive person. [ Cheering and applause ] Who is a racist, a sexist, a xenophobe, a homophobe, and a religious bigot. [ Cheering and applause
intensifies ] And those are
his nice qualities. [ Laughter ] -Damn! [ Applause ]
I mean, I gotta say. [ Cheering and applause ] I was always a fan
of Gruff Bernie, but I like Insult Comic Bernie
even more. [ Laughter and applause ]
You can catch that and more on his new Netflix special,
“Ya Burnt!” [ Laughter and applause ] And Trump’s actions
this week have shown that the stakes
of the Democratic race could not be higher. Now, the Republicans, with the
exception of Mitt Romney, have acquitted Trump
in the impeachment trial, the 2020 election is really
the last chance we have to stop our system
from fully sliding into a corrupt banana republic. Republicans have given Trump
the green light to subvert our democracy
and the rule of law without consequences and, now,
he’s pushing full steam ahead. He’s literally bullying the
Justice Department, via tweet, to dole out lenient sentences to the cronies who committed
crimes on his behalf. Every time I think Trump has done the worst thing
he could possibly do, he finds a way
to one-up himself. He’s like the exact opposite
of Simone Biles. [ Laughter ]
Like every time you think she
can’t stun you of a new routine, she posts a video of herself
doin’ something like this. -Whoo! -Up! Yeah. [ Audience oohs ]
-I mean, it’s fun to imagine Trump attempting
even one part of that routine. [ Laughter ] You know, I imagine
it would look like this… -Witch hunt. [ Explosion ]
[ Laughter and applause ] [ Applause and cheering ] -We had like 15 people
workin’ all day on that. [ Laughter ] [ Laughs ] [ Fresh laughter ] 100% first time I’ve seen it. [ Laughter and applause ] Republican Senators tried
to tell us that impeachment would be a teachable
moment for Trump, but Trump made it clear
that wasn’t the case. He was basically an inmate
at a parole hearing and, when they asked him,
“So, what are your plans when you get out?”
He said… [as Trump] Uh,
I’d like to kill again. [ Laughter ]
Last night, we saw how little
Trump has changed with the case of one
of his long-time confidants, convicted criminal Roger Stone, seen here in his very real
outfit from the inauguration. [ Laughter ]
I mean, look at him. Is he attending the inauguration or Mr. Peanut’s funeral? [ Laughter ] He’s dressed like
Punxsutawney Phil’s coke dealer. “Good news, Phil, baby. Six more weeks of winter
and it’s the good snow, baby.” [ Laughter and applause ] [laughing] Stone — [ Applause ]
-Whoo! -Stone was convicted
of lying to Congress and witness tampering, both
actions intended to help Trump during Robert Mueller’s
Russia investigation. You might remember that Stone even tried to intimidate
one witness by threatening to steal
that witness’ therapy dog. Stone wrote in an email,
“You are a rat. A stoolie. You backstab your friends–
run your mouth my lawyers are dying
to Rip you to shreds.” Stone also said he would
“take that dog away from you.” [ Laughter ]
That’s right. He threatened
to take someone’s therapy dog. Even Spirit Airlines
doesn’t do that. [ Laughter ]
And they don’t even
have cushions. [ Laughter ] So, on Monday,
prosecutors recommended up to nine years
in jail for Stone and then,
in the middle of the night, Trump lashed out at that
sentence on Twitter, writing, “This is a horrible
and very unfair situation. The real crimes are
on the other side, as nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this
miscarriage of justice.” He lied to Congress,
tampered with witnesses, and threatened
to steal someone’s dog. Dognapping, alone,
should get you jail time and you should have to serve
those years in a dog pound. [ Laughter and applause ]
And then, outta nowhere, in a shocking move,
the Justice Department, led by Trump’s co-conspirator,
Attorney General Bill Barr, announced on Tuesday
they were changing the sentencing recommendation,
after Trump’s tweet, prompting all four prosecutors
working on the case to withdraw in protest. Barr is turning
the Justice Department into a political weapon
for Trump and, when Trump was asked
about the move yesterday, he insisted both that he hadn’t
directed the Justice Department to go easy on Stone and also, that he had the absolute right
to do it, if he had wanted to. -You seemed,
from your tweet today, that were upset about the
Roger Stone sentencing. -Yeah.
I thought it was ridiculous. -Did you ask the Justice —
-No, I didn’t speak to the Justice — I’d be able
to do it, if I wanted. I have the absolute right
to do it. I stay out of things, to a degree that people
wouldn’t believe. [ Laughter ]
-No. We wouldn’t. We wouldn’t believe it. You don’t stay out of anything. You couldn’t even stay
out of Robert Pattinson’s and Kristen Stewart’s
relationship. [ Laughter and applause ] You’re like the guy at a party
who walks up to a couple that are clearly fighting
and says… [as Trump]
So, who cheated on who? [ Laughter ] Karen! I didn’t know
you had it in ya. [ Laughter ]
Also, this is not the first time Trump has insisted
he has the absolute right to direct
the Justice Department to do his political bidding
or, the absolute right to do a buncha other obviously
unconstitutional stuff. -He tweeted, “As the President
of the United States, I have an absolute right,
perhaps even a duty, to investigate, or have
investigated, CORRUPTION, and that would include
asking or suggesting other Countries to help us out!” -“I never offered Pardons
to Homeland Security Officials, never ordered anyone
to close our Southern border (although I have
the absolute right to do so).” -The president tweeting that
sharing intelligence with Russia is something he has
“the absolute right to do.” -He told The New York Times
tonight, “I have the absolute right
to do what I want to do with the Justice Department.” -No, you don’t.
You don’t have the absolute right
to do any of that stuff. Also, anytime you use the phrase
“I have the absolute right,” you’re not the good guy
in that situation. Trump sounds like an angry
customer yelling at a Dunkin’s because they wouldn’t
let him use the bathroom. [as Trump] I have the absolute
right to use the bathroom! You gotta buy somethin’
or get out. Besides, Amy Klobuchar’s
still in there, canvassing for votes. [ Laughter and applause ]
“Somebody’s in here!” “Somebody undecided?!” [ Laughter and applause ] So, in the last 24 hours,
we’ve learned that Bernie sanders
is now the front-runner for the Democratic nomination, promising to fundamentally
transform the corrupt system that created Trump
and from which Trump benefits. Meanwhile, Trump is stoking
a constitutional crisis at the Justice Department by interfering
in criminal cases, protecting his cronies,
retaliating against his enemies, using the government
as a political weapon, talking like a thug
and a dictator… -And those are
his nice qualities. [ Laughter ]
-This has been “A Closer Look.” ♪♪
[ Cheering and applause ]

  1. DEMOCRATS GET WITH IT. The USA doesn't need Keystone cops acting like they need to pulverize one another, and give some Loser like Trump Ammo to put across to low grade idiot supporters who sadly can actually vote!

  2. Scam of the century was the nauseating public confirmation of the annexation of USA by ISRAEL. Smirking Netanyahu showing the world who owns the USA in a room crammed with zionist millionaires and billionaires. Chabad Lubavitch Kushner's "plan" is for the annihilation and erasure of Palestine. The billionaires like Seth Klarman want tool Buttgig in place to do their bidding just in case somehow Trump does not manage to whitewash his crimes and get the ballots properly rigged.

  3. This butthead of a president keeps screaming, "Read article 2. You'll see. It says that I can do anything I want and nobody can do anything to me. Anything! Nothing! That's what it says!" And the Republicans reply, "That's right, Mister Buttthe…. …errr… …President. That is what it says there. Anything you say, sir."

  4. I’m sorry but Seth only talks about trump and never mentions anything good that’s he actually done. Can’t wait for the election, and his dumbass reaction when trump wins. This guy is pathetic and a typical democrat.

  5. If u dont elect bern now you are fucked iam sorry 2 say this but bern is your last chance 2 really change something bcs if u dont there will bee 100 milion homeless in the next 4 years. America once the proud country off the brave and free is now only porr and broke while they spend 11 trillion on wars u have 20 milion homeless thats sad really.

  6. I love Bernie and agree with most of his policies. If you don’t but still hate trump. Wouldn’t it be worth it to see Bernie on the stage insulting trump to his face. Trumps head would explode and it would be hilarious. Trump won’t be able to handle it. The other nominees will parse words and be too soft.

  7. Nice job, but you forgot to mention "Deep State" Pete's donations to Shadow, Inc., or Pete's, HRC's & Obama's connections to Shadow Inc., and its parent company ACRONYM. There's too much corruption in the DNC.

  8. I'll believe that Berine Sanders is really a man that wants deep and complete change when, if he becomes president, makes the US government officially recognize the Armenian Genocide. Meaning that he cares more about the rights of people than of political alliances with dictators because they are more convenient.

  9. Rodger stone is the biggest criminal ever been born in this country are ever existed in this country he need to get 90 years and take Trump and Barr with him

  10. Donald Trump been impeached the Senate no longer is a part of the Constitution of the United States they are they own little party. we need a whole new constitution where it's the law of the land not any party

  11. I love how Seth Meyers doesn’t take a jab at Bernie whenever he mentions him.

    Other late night hosts just make fun of his age. People say that they are just jokes, but the old age jokes get old. They have stoped being funny. And it’s obvious that they don’t like Bernie so they make those cruel jokes.

    Seth Meyer’s jokes about Bernie aren’t all about his age. They are funny and not filled with attacks towards him.

  12. God I miss dunkin donuts. Went back to ohio briefly and ate there every morning. Boise Idaho likes krispy kreme 🤢 and doesnt have Dunkin Donuts 😭

  13. Can anyone help me find the isolated clip they show of Sanders speaking in New Hampshire that is shown here? The sound bite would also work. I'm struggling finding it elsewhere so that I can share on other social media.

  14. Okay, look. I want Drumpf out, but someone has got to make this joke: "Screwing up the Iowa Caucus. There's an app for that"

  15. Press: "Did you commit a crime Mr. President?"
    Trump: "No, absolutely not. Although I have the absolute right to. But I don't commit crimes, to a degree, that most people wouldn't believe."

  16. Buttigieg helped fund the app that flopped in Iowa, and he declared victory before results were in. It's so obvious the DNC is rigging this.

  17. Bernie wins but Buttigieg gets the delegates… Yep. Looks like they're planning to fuckover Sanders again. Here comes 4 more years for Donny "Mini-Mittens" Drumpf.

  18. Check out the expressions of the 2 women at the 09:04 mark as he says "I stay out of things to a degree that people wouldn't believe."

  19. Bernie, you just started the list.
    Honestly, I can't even think of one single good quality of Trump.
    And I'm not a mean hearted person.

  20. Yeah, Iowa’s caucus vote/delegate tally if still effed, but can we talk about winning delegates from towns with 5-15 residents of voting age in NH?

  21. So first offender gets 7-9 but Hillary goes free ?
    Trump out because Dems can’t win.
    Barr out because Dems will go to jail.
    Lollllllllll Pathetic Democrat Party.

  22. Sigh. We can’t afford Bernie. It would be nice but we just can’t afford him. And if he thought Trump was so dangerous, he should have gotten behind Hillary to ensure this monster wouldn’t be elected president. But he wouldn’t do it.

  23. This is not the time to stay out of "politics" this is the end game man.

    Either we change or allow the fascist theocracy that is the GOP to take over completely.

    Keep it coming Seth Myers

  24. Oh the hilarity. Watch the Fox and Friends interview from this morning where Judge Nap cites that Roger Stone threatened a cat. Fox didn't even take the time to look at what he was indicted for nor the specifics of the Service Dog he threatened. Show's how blind the network is to Donnie.

  25. Imagine being caught stealing, and at the trial your actual argument is, "It's not fair that I get jail time! I don't see anybody arresting the cops that bagged me!"

  26. Constructive criticism from someone in the arts: There's no way that your budget is so low that you can't hire better graphics people. These particular motion graphics were so bad that they were funny, but even a lot of your photoshop is bad. Yes, it has gotten better, but it is still below par. Have you seen Jimmy Kimmel's graphics team? Making Brett Kavanaugh drink a beer while testifying? Trump's State of the Union Lie Detector? The animation on Colbert's Don and the Giant Impeach or even the Fury Road to the Whitehouse? Anybody doing graphics professionally for more than a year should be able to top what your team is doing.

  27. For those of you who don't currently support Bernie, and particularly if you are undecided, please watch videos of his rallies. Bernie's policies are not extreme. They are all about creating a FAIR society. Kindness and compassion wins #NotMeUs

  28. Seriously don't you want to see a Bernie Trump debate! Everyone's favorite grandpa vs everyone's family shame. Bernie would make him look like the slimy con man he is.

  29. Trump religious? Has he even himself claimed so? Of course, over there any president has to claim to be religious and "god bless America", but I don't think he believes in much anything than himself. I think he's actually a tough bite to swallow for the republicans who truly are religious, like we saw with Mitt Romney. and a bigot he is, just don't know if he is religious. Unless Bernie meant his Islamophobia..

  30. After seeing Bernie speaking about the Trump, I love Bernie all the more! He is absolutely my number one choice to be our next president. Buttigieg is my second… Bloomberg – No Way!

  31. Hey YouTube, dont force feed me this shill corporate junk show. I've never watched it and never intend to. If I wanna watch 💩 talk nonsense, I'll watch pro wrestling
