12:43 am
for a former top aide who lied to the fbi. making clear once again what trump really means when he says he's "tough on crime." for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: during the campaign, trump repeatedly cast himself as the candidate who would be "tough on crime," using one nixonian phrase in particular. >> we need law and order in our country. i am the law and order candidate. i will restore law and order. law and order. law and order. we have to bring back law and order. >> seth: that would have been a great campaign promise if he meant the tv show. "we're gonna bring back 'law and order' and also look for all-new episodes of 'freaks and geeks."" [ laughter ] although, in a way, trump was right. 10 months into his presidency, and his administration is already being investigated by sam waterston. [ laughter ]
12:44 am
trump of course has routinely lied about rising crime levels and promised that only he could restore law and order. but not only has he lied about the crime stats, he's also been very specific about who he claims is responsible for those "crimes." >> they want to have illegal immigrants pouring into our country, bringing with them crime. tremendous amounts of crime. we don't want to have that. we want to have a great, beautiful, crime free country. when i talk immigration and when i talk about illegal immigration and all the problems with crime. illegal immigration also brings with it massive crime. we want strong borders. we don't want drugs coming in. we don't want crime coming in. end illegal immigration. stop the massive inflow of refugees. reduce surging crime. so when i said we have to have a moratorium, we have to have a ban until we find out what's going on. i took a tremendous amount of heat. and now everyone's sort of saying, "trump is right."
12:45 am
is right." [ laughter ] the only time anyone's ever said -- [ cheers and applause ] the only time anyone's ever said "trump is right" is on the golf course. [ light laughter ] "where did the president's ball go?" "oh, trump is right -- over in the trees. you can't see him because his hair blends in with the rough." [ laughter ] of course, it didn't seem to matter to trump that immigrants actually commit fewer crimes than native-born americans, or that refugees are carefully vetted. nor did it matter to trump that he was wrong when he retweeted a racist infographic falsely claiming that 81% of whites are killed by african- americans, a stat that was completely false. and rather than admit that it was wrong, trump adamantly defended himself. >> you tweeted out that whites killed by blacks, these are statistics you picked up from somewhere, at a rate of 81% and that's totally wrong. whites killed by black is 15%, yet you tweeted it's 81%. --
12:46 am
>> bill i didn't tweet, i re-tweeted somebody that was supposedly an expert and it was also a radio show. >> yeah, but why do you want to be in that zone? >> hey bill, bill, am i gonna check every statistic? i've got millions and millions of people. >> you got to, you're a presidential contender, you've got to check it. >> i've got millions of people. you know what? fine. but this came out of radio shows and everything else. >> oh come on, radio shows? >> all it was was a re-tweet. excuse me, all it was is a re-tweet, it wasn't from me, and it did, it came out from a radio show and other places. >> wouldn't it be better -- >> seth: you know you're in a bad place when bill o'reilly is telling you you have to do better. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] that's like steve bannon telling you to go clean yourself up. [ laughter ] so trump has made clear repeatedly who he's really talking about when he talks about crime. which might explain why, when his former national security adviser michael flynn actually pleaded guilty to a very serious crime, lying to the fbi. trump, the law and order candidate, suddenly found a soft spot in his heart for criminals,
12:47 am
hillary had also lied to the fbi. >> well i feel badly for general flynn, i feel very badly. he's led a -- very strong life and i feel very badly, john. i will say this, hillary clinton lied many times to the fbi, and nothing happened to her. flynn lied, and they destroyed his life. >> seth: hillary did not lie to the fbi. she was interviewed by the fbi, and they found no wrongdoing. that's like getting caught robbing a bank and telling the cops, "what about all those people taking money from the atm?" [ light laughter ] and that -- [ applause ] that came after an unhinged twitter rant from trump, the guy who based his entire campaign on law and order, defending a confessed criminal and attacking the fbi for its investigation of a potential conspiracy to undermine an election. first trump tweeted, "so general flynn lies to the fbi and his life is destroyed, while crooked hillary clinton, on that now famous fbi holiday interrogation with no swearing in and no recording, lies many times and nothing happens to her. rigged system, or just a double
12:48 am
man, the new 280 character limit on twitter is turning trump into a beat poet. [ laughter ] "so she lies many times and nothing happens to her? rigged system? [ drumming ] or just a double standard? [ cheers and applause ] man." trump then attacked the fbi more directly after a report that one of the agents involved in the clinton investigation had sent some anti-trump text messages. trump tweeted, "tainted. no, very dishonest? fbi agent's role in clinton probe under review." what's with the parenthetical? [ light laughter ] he's starting to disagree with himself in his own tweets. he sounds like a tortured writer dictating a letter to an assistant. "tainted? no. very dishonest reporting from lying media. scratch that, fake news. let me see that. oh, this is good. send this one out." [ laughter and applause ]
12:49 am
so trump says he's tough on crime when he thinks those crimes have been committed by immigrants, refugees, african-americans, or his political opponents, but not when they've been committed by the people closest to him, like flynn or paul manafort or sheriff joe arpaio. or alabama senate candidate roy moore, who has been accused by at least nine women of sexual harassment and assault, including several who were underage at the time. after the news broke about moore, it didn't take long for trump to give him the benefit of the doubt. >> he totally denies it. he says it didn't happen. and you know, you have to listen to him also. you're talking about -- he said 40 years ago this did not happen. and i do have to say, 40 years is a long time. he has run eight races and this has never come up. so 40 years is a long time. the women are trump voters. most of them are trump voters. all you can do is you have to do what you have to do. >> seth: all you can do is you have to do what you have to do? sounds like a fortune cookie written by someone who was completely out of ideas. "
12:50 am
to do what you have to do. lottery numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5?" [ laughter ] and after trump's endorsement of moore, republicans quickly began to fall in line. just weeks ago the republican national committee cut ties with moore, but after trump's endorsement the rnc is getting back into the alabama senate race and will transfer funds to the alabama republican party. and senate majority leader mitch mcconnell, who just weeks ago said he believed the women and called on moore to step aside, softened his position so much, he couldn't even bring himself to say moore's name. >> if he wins will you insist on referring his case to the senate ethics committee? >> well i think we're going to let the people of alabama decide a week from tuesday who they want to send to the senate and then we'll address the matter appropriately. >> do you believe that judge moore should be in the senate? >> i'm gonna let the people of alabama make the call. >> but you are prepared to take action if he is indeed elected?
12:51 am
have to consider the matters that have been litigated in the campaign should that particular candidate win. >> seth: that particular candidate? did you forget his name? because here's a phrase to help you remember it. "he likes to wear cordu-roy, and he can't go to the mall any moore." [ laughter and applause ] of course, as if it needs to be said again, the allegations against moore are credible, corroborated by dozens of sources and supporting evidence. and yet, presented with this evidence, all the moore campaign can do is call the accusers liars, as a spokeswoman for the moore campaign did on cnn on tuesday, during a truly mind-bending interview in which she also tried to point out that there are still women in alabama who have not accused moore of sexual assault. [ light laughter ] >> one of the jobs of journalists is to not just take -- an academy award performance at face value. you need to dig into the facts, and one of the facts in the case. >> 30 people corroborated her story who knew roy moore between 1977 and 1992. >> actually, actually they did not -- >> they did, according to the recordings of "the post."
12:52 am
>> poppy, we need to make it clear that there's a group of non-accusers, that have not accused the judge of any sexual misconduct or anything illegal. >> seth: that's literally their best argument. [ laughter ] i can't wait to see their ads. "did you know there are over two and half million women in alabama, and just under two and a half million have never been sexually assaulted by roy moore." [ cheers and applause ] but the most revealing comments trump has made about this race are about moore's opponent, doug jones, a lifelong prosecutor who convicted the kkk members responsible for the birmingham church bombing that killed four little girls. trump has repeatedly claimed that alabamians should vote for moore, rather than jones, because of their positions on crime. >> jones, i've looked at his record. it's terrible on crime. i can tell you for a fact we do not need somebody that's going to be bad on crime. but i can tell you, you don't need somebody who is soft on crime like jones. we don't want to have a liberal democrat in alabama, believe me.
12:53 am
stopping crime. >> seth: "we want stopping crime?" it's official, we elected sheriff tarzan. [ laughter ] but think about that, trump says he wants to stop crime, but he's backing an accused child molester over a prosecutor who convicted the kkk. which tells you that when he uses the word crime, that's not what he really means. he doesn't want to stop crime, he wants to stop immigrants, refugees, or his political opponents. for years we've heard republicans call themselves the party of law and order, and now trump has revealed what they really mean. trump talks tough when it comes to mexicans, muslims, african-americans, and women. but if you're a white man who happens to be close to trump or support his agenda, the strongest thing he can say is this. >> all you can do is you have to do what you have to do. >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with dax shepard everybody.

[ laughter ] they all know. you don't know? they all get it. it's so obvious. >> seth: so you -- i want to say you play a police officer in this film. >> yeah. >> seth: based on the clip, you do not possess great intelligence. [ laughter ] >> no. i -- my niche is an actor is to play very stupid people. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. i'll take it. >> seth: does this -- now there are two kinds of stupid, there's stupid with awareness that they're stupid and then stupid without.
1:00 am
>> i specialize in without. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, that's too stupid to even know they're stupid. >> yeah, like you mentioned "baby mama." >> seth: yeah. >> so the difference between this character and "baby mama" is i have a mustache in this. >> seth: that's it. [ laughter ] >> yeah and a different shirt. like i wore a lot of flannel shirts in "baby mama" and here i'm obviously in some kind of municipality. i don't know what that is but, yeah. >> seth: you -- one of your -- >> are you impressed with that mustache? >> seth: it is a good mustache. is it your own? >> it is my own. >> seth: yeah. >> and i got to say, i was nervous while growing it that it would be less than powerful. and then when i saw the movie for the first time a couple weeks ago -- >> seth: it's great. >> it's a very powerful mustache. [ laughter ] >> seth: is that -- in your illustrious career, is that the first time you've grown your own mustache for a role? >> it is. >> seth: wow. >> and i very much wanted -- i've been looking forward, hoping, certain dreams have gone away. >> seth: yeah. >> i'm not going to get hired to play a super hero. >> seth: you think that window is closed? >> i had always secretly thought, "oh god, i hope i get hired to play a super hero. i can do steroids." >> seth: yeah. >> you know? [ laughter
1:01 am
>> i'd like to try it as a man. >> seth: yeah. >> but have an excuse. i'm a father of two. i can't just do steroids for fun. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> but for several million dollars. >> seth: yeah, you would do steroids. >> i can do it. yeah, yeah. >> seth: so -- >> or like a coke addict. [ laughter ] >> seth: you want to play a coke addict? >> yeah, i mean, i've been sober for 13 years. but i feel like if scorsese calls and says, "i got this great role for you. you just got to huff a lot cocaine." >> seth: yeah. >> i'd have to do it. [ laughter ] >> seth: i bet they use prop cocaine. i feel like -- >> not scorsese. >> seth: that's true. [ laughter ] >> no, come on. maybe spielberg but not scorsese -- >> seth: but so then you got to do the mustache. i -- did you have enough time? like when you got offered the part to when you started shooting, were you worried it was too small a window? >> i was. in fact, it's a little, how do we say, inconsistent because it was growing as we were filming. >> seth: ah. >> so there are some scenes where it's a proper womb broom. [ laughter ] and then there are others where it's more just like a pre-teen.
1:02 am
but funny enough, the whole reason i'm in the movie is that vincent d'onofrio who's also in the movie, much better actor than me. >> seth: fantastic actor. i would say even. but he's a fantastic actor. >> yeah, one of the best. >> seth: yes. >> one of the greats. gets to play smart people all the time -- they always hire him for that. he text me, "hey, we're starting a movie in two weeks," because he read the script. he said, "this guy's dumb, got to get dax." [ audience ohs ] >> seth: yeah. >> he told the director. he said, "yeah, he's as dumb as it gets." [ laughter ] and it was, you know, so it just happened. like d'onofrio actually cast me in this movie. >> seth: that's great. >> and then he said, "i'm growing a mustache for it." and i said, "well then i'm going to too." and just to kind of mess with him and, you know, here we have it. >> seth: that's fantastic. >> yeah. the movie's called "mustache christmas" -- [ laughter ] please check it out december 8th on netflix. >> seth: and its -- you play two police officers but your mustaches solve the crime. you're just like there. >> that's right. that's right. that's right. >> seth: i want to talk -- >> like the tea leaves. i put dust in them. and then i start connecting the dots. genius mustache --
1:03 am
>> seth: at one point there's yarn. your mustache has yarn connecting different -- >> connected to other parts. >> seth: yeah. >> and someone goes, "oh, my gosh. that's a map of el camino." >> seth: yeah. >> yeah. >> seth: and that's how you solve it. >> that's right. >> seth: well, we've given away the film now. >> yeah. you know, you can skip it. but you are having -- you're having another kid? >> seth: i've having another kid. you have got two now. >> i do have two. >> seth: i got my second on the way. what is -- how would you describe the difference between one and two? >> well as you know because you're already a parent, all these clichés you hear, they are painfully true. >> seth: yeah. >> and the one we had been warned about which proved to be true, is it's not twice as hard with a second kid. it's like 75 times harder. [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> it's impossibly hard. >> seth: yeah. >> and we're not super young, you know? i mean -- >> seth: no we're -- i think we are about the same. >> i think we are the same age. >> seth: yeah. >> very old. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> seth: old for young kids. >> very old for young kids. i'm grateful that i have the patience that i have that i would never had in my 20s. >> seth: i agree with that. >> but the bending over -- >> seth: yeah. >> and waking up early and, you know, all that caring for them. it's exhausting.
1:04 am
>> seth: it is exhausting. and i imagine when you have the second one, the first one doesn't have an appreciation for how much harder it got. they're just still a kid. >> they're a kid. they could care less. yeah, yeah. >> seth: your 2-year-old -- you just had an incident. is it safe to call it an incident? >> it is safe to call it -- i'm going to -- a lot of people come on these shows and they brag about what great parents they are. and i'm about to tell you something very dark. >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> okay? first of all, let me just say our 4-year-old is perfect. and we thought we were crushing it as parents. >> seth: right. >> oh, my god. we should write a book. now we have this 2-year-old. she's just an animal. >> seth: yeah. >> right? i mean truth be told the first one's kristen. the second one's me. so, the other night she just would not stay in her bed, refused to do it. not an option for her. and we had friends coming over so i'm like, "you got to get in bed." finally by the 12th time, i lose it. i lose my temper. i pick her up and take her into our bathroom. her favorite thing in the whole world is paw patrol toys, right? she's got a dozen of them or so. they're her life. ck

[ laughter ] >> nothing i can do. >> seth: yeah, she called your bluff. >> yes. >> i called my mom the next day. i said, "this is what happened. what should i do?" she said, "that's exactly what you did." i said, "well, what did you do"" so goes, "i gave up." [ laughter ] at three years old, i'm like, "you win. do whatever you want." she goes, "well look, you have health insurance and a career, they'll be fine." >> seth: well, there you go. >> fingers crossed. >> seth: the s
