Rudy Giuliani Butt-Dials Reporter; Trump Booed at World Series: A Closer Look

-The president got booed
at the World Series a few days after we found out that his lawyer had butt-dialed
a reporter. For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ Obviously those things
are not related. It is a sign of how crazy
everything is right now. On Friday we found out that President Trump’s
personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani had accidentally butt-dialed
a reporter twice leaving voicemails about Ukraine
and Rudy’s need for cash, which means we are officially
at the point where these guys are confessing out of their
mouths and out of their asses. [ Laughter ] The next time they talk about
leaks, remember, they mean Rudy’s ass. And then less than two days
later, everyone had to shift from
Butt-dialgate to the news that the leader of ISIS
had been killed after the president cryptically
tweeted, “Something very big
has just happened.” He tweets about a huge
intelligence and military victory
for the United States like a stepdad who just scored
backstage passes to Hootie & the Blowfish. [ Gruff voice ] Kevin, I know
you’re not my biological son, but you are about to wish you
were because something very big has just happened. And yet another sign of just how
much of a roller coaster Trump’s presidency has been,
in that two-day span, he went from the low of his personal lawyer
butt-dialing a reporter to the high of killing the
world’s most wanted terrorist, and then that same day, back to the low of getting booed
at the World Series. -President Trump greeted by boos
by many at game five of the World Series between the Astros
and the Nationals. -The President and First Lady
of the United States. [ Crowd booing ] -Now, you may think that I have
two beers right now to celebrate Donald Trump
getting booed, but I’m actually holding two
beers to celebrate this guy who took a ball in the chest
last night rather than drop his. That guy had a better night than the president
of the United States. That guy right there. That guy took a ball
to his chest rather than drop his beers
and jumped ahead of Joe Biden in the primary. [ Laughter ] But really, the best part was
just watching the joy drain out of Trump’s face as he
realized he was getting booed. I mean, look at that. He’s like kid on Christmas who
sees a giant present and then opens it and it’s just
a box full of packing peanuts and a Yankee candle. What scent is this?
Damn it! Now, again, this raid
was a major military and intelligence victory
for the United States, and yet, even in announcing
such a huge achievement, Trump couldn’t help but do
what he always does — make it super weird. -Today President Trump announced
that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed
in a raid by U.S. special forces in Northwest Syria overnight. -I got to watch it
in the situation room. And we watched it, uh… so clearly. We had absolutely perfect — As though you were watching
a movie. It was — The technology there
alone is really great. [ Laughter ] -Honestly I would not be
surprised if to keep him busy while they
carried out the mission, they made him watch
an actual movie. [ Laughter ] [ As Trump ] It was ama–
Tom Cruise was there. He put on his flight suit,
jumped out of the plane. And, you know,
just let me assure you, the whole mission strictly
followed what they in the military call
“ghost protocol.” [ Laughter ] -There were times when Trump
seemed much less specific about basic facts
of what had happened and how it was carried out. -Which special operations teams
were involved? -Uh, many of them. And at the
top level. -That’s the face of a man who does not know the names
of the teams. That is the face of a man who is
still 50/50 on whether Navy SEALs
are actual seals. [ Laughter ]
He’s not sure, but he knows — He knows the window has closed and it is too late for him
to ask. [ As Trump ] So, General, to
congratulate the Navy SEALs. what do you think, like,
a bottle of Scotch, or maybe like a bucket of fish?
Whatever. The scotch? Yeah, yeah.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. [ Laughter ] -Now there might be some people
out there thinking to themselves maybe
Trump deserves less credit for this than the actual
military and the intelligence officials
who carried out the mission. And by some people,
I’m referring to specifically to 2012 Donald Trump who tweeted “Obama deserves much less credit
for the killing of Bin Laden. The praise goes to
our brave military and intelligence officers and stop congratulating Obama
for killing Bin Laden. The Navy SEALs
killed Bin Laden. What amazing to me is not only
the fact that there’s an old Trump tweet
for everything, but also how many there are. All of his tweets should have
come with an automatic disclaimer at the
bottom that said, “Unless I’m president, ha-ha, in which case, I believe
the exact opposite.” [ Cheers and applause ] In fact, in a 2011 TV interview, Trump even went out of his way
to insist repeatedly that Obama should not get credit
for killing Bin Laden because it was an easy decision. -He killed Bin Laden. -He didn’t kill Bin Laden. You know, he gets
so much credit for that. Okay. Excuse me. Excuse me.
-He authorized it. He had the guts
to make that decision. -The military and the genius —
Excuse me. Guts? I don’t know why Obama
gets credit for the whole Bin Laden thing. He’s sitting there.
He’s got three choices — Leave him alone,
which nobody would do. Take him out with a missile, or take him out
with the military. So he said take him out
with the military. Okay. Congratulations. I keep hearing about,
“Oh, Bin Laden.” The military did
an incredible job and they called him
and they said, “We have him.” And he said, “Go get him.” What’s he gonna say,
“Don’t get him”? And he gets all this credit.
It’s a lot of crap. -You know, if cable news wanted a dissenting voice
to come on and criticize 2019 Donald Trump, all they would have to do
is hire 2011 Donald Trump. I mean, it would be
a lot of fun to watch. -It is a tribute to the courage
of our armed forces and to the decisiveness
of our commander in chief, the president
of the United States. -The military did
an incredible job. and they called him
and they said, “We have him.” And he said, “Go get him.” What’s he gonna say,
“Don’t get him”? And he gets all this credit.
It’s a lot of crap. [ Laughter ] [ Cheers and applause ] -Trump then went on to tell
a completely fabricated story about how he was the first
person to warn of the threat posed by Bin Laden
before anyone else even knew who Bin Laden was, a claim
that has no basis in reality. -You know, if you read my book,
there was a book just before the World Trade Center
came down. And I don’t get any credit
for this, but that’s okay. I never do. I said, “There is somebody
named Osama Bin Laden. You’d better kill him
or take him out.” Something to that effect.
“He’s big trouble.” -He doesn’t even have the energy
to lie convincingly. You know someone is lying when even they say something
to that effect. It’s like if your wife
confronted you about where you’ve been all night,
and you said, “Honey, I was at the office,
or something to that effect.” [ Laughter ] Trump also —
[ Cheers and applause ] Trump also kept up his ongoing
war with Democrats in Congress when he told reporters he had
chosen not to notify House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
about the raid because he didn’t want
the operation to leak. -And have you notified the
congressional leaders about
this, Pelosi? -We’ve notified some. Others are being notified now
as I speak. We were going to notify them
last night, but we decided not to do that
because Washington leaks like I’ve never seen before. -Did you inform Speaker Pelosi
ahead of time? -No, I didn’t. I didn’t do it.
I didn’t do that. I wanted to make sure
this was kept secret. -I’m sorry, but it seems weird
to criticize Pelosi for leaks considering every time your
lawyer farts, he FaceTimes CNN. [ Laughter ] [ As Giuliani ]
Anderson! What do you want?! [ Normal voice ]
You called us. [ As Giuliani ] Oh, Rudy!
This is why you can’t eat chili! [ Laughter ] Now the timing
of Rudy’s butt-dial is not ideal for Trump. Because today Democrats
announced they will hold a vote on an impeachment resolution
on Thursday. So as the impeachment inquiry
ramps up, this is who Democrats
are dealing with. -Rudolph Giuliani, there is
no elegant way to put this, but he butt-dialed
an NBC News reporter last week inadvertently leaving
a voicemail message that no one
was supposed to hear. -Do you know how hard you have
to sit down on a cellphone to unlock it
and then call someone? I mean,
what was Rudy doing anyway? [ Laughter ] “What are you doing, Rudy?” “Oh, I’m just returning
some calls.” And Rudy butt-dialed the
reporter not once, but twice. And on one of those voicemails, he can be heard discussing
a mysterious plan involving Bahrain and a need for hundreds of thousands
of dollars in cash. -Tomorrow I got to get you
to get on Bahrain. You gotta call. -Yeah. Hold on. -Got to call Robert again
tomorrow. Is Robert around? -Rob? He’s in Turkey. -The problem is we need some
money. We need a few hundred thousand. -It used to be that if you
were in law enforcement and you wanted to catch someone
talking about a mysterious plan involving Bahrain and hundreds
of thousands of dollars, you need an undercover cop
and a surveillance van. Now all you need to do
is sit around and wait for Rudy Giuliani’s
phone to slide down between his chair
and his butt crack. [ Laughter ] “He’s talking about the cash,
and now he’s making a hand-off, and, uh, what’s — I’m sorry.
There’s a sound. It’s, um —
I think it’s someone letting the air
out of a balloon? [ Laughter ] -As Democrats intensify
their impeachment inquiry and prepare for a Thursday vote, this is who they’re up against. So if you’re a member
of Congress who gets a call from Rudy Giuliani,
just remember, you might hear
a lot of evidence, but you also might hear…
-A lot of crap. -This has been “A Closer Look.”. [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪

  1. ?Take him out of the office, drag him out if you must. Go back to trump steaks and lousy hotels, please take eric and junior as well. We all route route route for impeachment. If Trumps not removed its insaine. For one term is more then enough your a shame, shame, shame.?

    From the late show

  2. Trump cant for the life of him tell anyone that he doesnt know the answer? tho he would seem like he has dementia if he would tell the truth all the time ?

  3. I like Trump, the welfare turds hate him. Until you get off government assistance you can call me Daddy since I help pay your way, BOY !

  4. There's a whole half of the population that listen to Kirby vacuum cleaner salesman Trump and still believe he sucked that cloth full of dirt out of their couch!

  5. Trump, thought he would go to the DC game and be greeted with ejaculating chants of U-S-A. I think they declared Al-Baghdadi dead 5 years ago and we haven't any audio or video (including this alleged footage we are seeing) in that time, I think that has been a safe assumption, and the timing Trump closes out Enduring Freedom in these war zones with the new founding fathers annual purge in Kurdistan AND the debacle of Republican's 'Storming' a legal proceeding, Oh America I hope you see through this crap.

  6. I wish you showed the part when the crowd chanted, "Lock him up!" Every time I watch old videos of Trump talking, when he didn't slur his words, and spoke a little faster, I can't help but wonder how much more he will decline mentally, if we had to put up with 4 more years of him. The d*ck envy he has for Obama is real. Try as he might, to unravel Obama's legacy, all he's doing, is coming unglued. Trump is too incensed with jealousy toward Obama to focus on his job, and too secretive and spiteful toward the Dems to work with them to repair our government. He's damaged goods, with a chip on his shoulder, the size of Russia and China combined. Nothing he says or does makes sense.

  7. Aah, just love watching the communists on here going through their losing rituals. They really must hate the fact that this great President has got the economy the best ever in the last 50 years. The best ever African American employment ever, Stock Market hovering at record heights, not having a Nth Korean missile shot in anger, wonderful trade deals with China and the list goes on. Just loving the fact that these communist, corrupt media and their left/wing dead and decaying democrats lost the plot the moment that this great Commander-In-Chief took the Oath of Office.

  8. If you read the newspapers and look at all the pics trump was on the golf course when the raid was happening, that photo of him and military officers was taken hours later!! If everyone remembers trump dodged the draft five times. He knows nothing about the military and knows even less about this terrorist being killed, people who know exactly what happened because they watched it wouldn't talk the way our UNEDUCATED moron in the white house talks!! DON'T BELIEVE HIM EVER, ABOUT ANYTHING!!!!

  9. He lied about watching the raid. How outrageous? If u can’t be avail without for this, and a golf at the time and lie about it and take a fake photo of being in a situation room…can’t he be court marshaled for lying about his job as a commander in chief?

    There is one of being elevated to be a president of a country in-spite of his criminal past and present… can’t he respect the office of the president and just do his job of at least being present.

  10. And now for a little reality check, an actual stadium filled with a cross section of America, we all saw and heard their reaction to the Great Buffoon. It must be a hard come-down to the President that only heard cheers from much smaller crowds in staged rallies held in "safe" states. Let's move on to his impeachment in the House of Reps. Then to a Senate trial where even the republicans will be overwhelmed by Trump's guilt. The United States of America can ever allow anyone so craven to occupy the office of the Presidency for a day longer than the day of that vote in the Senate.

  11. Booing is what Liberals called hate speech..if it is against Trump it is a pride. With Liberals, America need no other enemies.

  12. I can’t wait till we go back to not knowing what the president is doing..for the last couple of days, a week- could you imagine having no idea what the president has done for the last month?!

  13. I nearly puke every time I hear Pence mention Trump with all of the feigned respect and loyalty that only Pence can dish out.In this clip we saw Pence refer to Trump as "our commander-in-chief", I was unaware that Pence was active military, because the term commander-in-chief specifically applies only to the military! The president has ultimate control of the various branches of the Armed Services, once you are no longer an active member, he ceases to be YOUR commander-in-chief. As citizens, the people of the United States are free to form their own opinions, they owe no allegiance to Majors, Generals or Presidents on matters in which they disagree. The Fox-News patriots are guilty of continually conflating this misconception, he is routinely referred to as "OUR commander-in-chief" and as we all know, everyone at Fox News was just as cowardly as Trump in avoiding any military service.

  14. Putin couldn't get away with this destruction of American and European democracies without the complicity of conservatives who have become the opposite of their proclaimed platform.

  15. The ignorant hypocritical Dumbass was on the golf course at the time of raid. Trump is the biggest loser in the world. Go to Hell Fraud.

  16. Trump used to be easy more coherent! His mental decline really shows against that old clip in my opinion. Terrifying.

  17. So many BRAINLESS DEmon Rat snowflakes on here, starting to look like a BLIZZARD!!! TRUMP 2020,, in a RED TSUNAMI!!!!o

  18. Just so we're all on the same page here, Trump never saw the raid live. He was golfing when it happened and saw the tape about 2 hours after it was all over. The "Live Situation Room Photo" was staged. I bet they told him AFTER it was over not before. He's a known security risk. Anyhow, they probably told him it was live when they showed him, too. Just to make him real happy and excited. Like a toddler watching a movie everyone has already seen.

  19. 1:22 The king in a fog and his mute queen. Reminiscent of the people's revolt against The Romanovs for being out of touch and scandalous.

  20. This president is low IQ man child.. he is a total embarrassment to this country which says alot about his supporters

  21. "Like watching a movie." Think about that for a second. Our President, while watching a raid where there was a good chance one of our soldiers could have died at any moment. Like watching a movie…

  22. I'm confused. I looked up the definition of "butt dial" . and it said an accidental call made when a phone is dialed from a rear pocket. This was an intentional call and there was someone on the other end. Please help me to understand

  23. The irony of it is that Obama didn't even take all the credit for the killing of Osama Bin Laden, since he was modest, and now Trump literally says, "I'm the one that did the capturing," although it's very clear that the army killed the leader of ISIS, not the President.

  24. It's funny how Trump lovers always sub comment. They don't defend him openly but if someone commends Obama they crawl out like roaches. Highly entertaining!

  25. After the Bin Laden raid I remember people gathering in front of the WH cheering USA, USA. We're there any Trumptards after the Bagdadi raid there? So much about this being the "greatest and most important". What an idiot..

  26. Trump beefs with Barack like he was in love with Michelle & Barack came out of nowhere & she married & Trump thinks he's the better caught when he really ain't ???‍♀️

  27. At the 5:04 mark, the contrast between the 2011 Trump (WHO REFUSED TO GIVE OBAMA CREDIT FOR TAKING OUT OSAMA BIN LADEN), and the 2019 Trump (WHO CLAIMS ALL THE CREDIT FOR KILING BAGDATI AND ISIS (I DID IT! ME! ME! ME!) is amazing!!!

  28. "All The Best People" just has a different meaning in the "Alternative Universe". Nothing to see here. Just move along please…..

  29. I wonder if Rudy is secretly trying to get out, and deliberately sent these messages. 99% sure he is just a dumbass but imagine if it was true? Minds would be blown. Hahaha

  30. breaking news..but dial?

    vs hillary&bush sold USA out to china&European unions …goodbye USA haaa funny propaganda news told me 3yrs lies about how trump was a Russian puppett..funny I believed him

  31. I was gonna say! When I saw the interview with the idiot in chief taking so much credit for killing Al- Baghdadi I was thinking, “wasn’t he the one who criticized Obama for saying ‘we killed Osama Bin Laden’ and he has the nerve to beg for credit in his part now?” What a load of bs.

  32. That shows you just how retarded Trump really is. Intelligence didn’t know if they had Bin Laden or not. He’s such a fucking idiot.

  33. I watch Seth on youtube daily. What's knocking me out is that he reports current news in a competent and very entertaining way. There is no nonsense except for that which he is reporting. Thanks Seth: I think you are at the top end of letting we the people find out what is going on.

  34. Obama had been very rude to Trump before Trump was elected. I like a guy who stands up for himself and says you're full of crap.

  35. At 2:12, the guy at the left end (white shirt) clearly shows a lot of nervousness on his face upon hearing the boos. It's almost sad to watch.

  36. Booing…. ????? Alternative cheering… HAHAHAHAHA! Like a garbage man is now called a Sanitation Engineer. OH OKAY!
