Trump Attacks Biden; NRA Calls Trump: A Closer Look

-The President is already back to lashing out at his critics and taking his cues
from the NRA. For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ We are now once again going through the absurd
post tragedy ritual of watching the media speculate
over whether Donald Trump is capable of changing his tone. The media seems desperate
to believe that Trump has a bunch of different tones
and moves and strategies, but he doesn’t. He’s not a Swiss Army knife. He’s just a sharp stick. Yesterday, he insisted to
reporters that he had already changed his tone and he began
by stating the obvious. -What do you say to your critics
that believe that your rhetoric is emboldening
white nationalists and inciting them with anger? -So, my critics are political
people. They are trying to make points. -Yes. I agree. They are trying to make points. That’s not a defense. That’s just a literal
description of what’s happening. [ As Trump ]
So my critics are human beings who are forming sentences
with their mouths, and out of those mouths
are coming words that are in English. [ Normal voice ]
Sounds like an alien trying to explain
the rules of basketball. “They are tall beings who use
the orange orb to make points.” Trump can’t go a day —
he can’t even go a few hours without fighting with someone because that’s
his favorite thing to do. It might be the only thing
he likes doing. If he weren’t President,
he’d be a guy around the city waiting for someone to
accidentally bump into him. That’s why he always
walks around with his chest puffed out
like that. [ As Trump ] Hey [bleep]
Did you bump into me? You want to go?
Let’s go right now. [ Laughter ] [ Normal voice ] For example,
just hours after he lied and said he changed his tone, Trump found time to respond
to a speech by Joe Biden. -“Watching Sleepy Joe Biden
making a speech, so boring. The lame stream media
will die in the ratings and clicks with this guy. It will be over for them,
not to mention the fact that our country will do poorly
with him. It will be one big crash, but
at least China will be happy.” -Think about how much
of a narcissist you have to be to tweet about
how much better you are for TV ratings on a day
when you are supposed to be consoling victims of a tragedy. It’s like if you crashed
a car while drunk driving and your first thought was, “Oh, my God,
I’m going to be on ‘Cops’!” [ Laughter ] Yesterday, Biden was asked
if he wanted to respond to any of Trump’s attacks
on him. And he had a very curt response. -Do you want to respond to
the president responding to you? -He should get a life. [ Cheers and applause ]
-That’s the problem. That is the problem right there. Fighting with people online
is his life. That’s all he wants to do. If he were President in 1996
instead of 2019, Biden would have gotten
an AOL instant message from someone named “TheDonald69”
that said, “You suck, loser. Sad. See you at school tomorrow.” In fact,
Trump seemed to spend all day lashing out at people even if they didn’t actually
criticize him. For example, he picked
a totally bizarre fight with the mayor of Dayton,
Nan Whaley, and Ohio senator Sherrod Brown. According to CNN,
after Trump’s trip, Brown said Trump was received
well by the patients, was comforting,
and did the right things. Whaley said victims
were grateful to see Trump and that he was treated well
by the victims, for sure. Neither of the two Democrats alleged that Trump was badly
received at the hospital. Now, you might think,
“How could he possibly find a way to get mad
about that?” Well, if you’re thinking that,
congratulations. You don’t have Donald Trump’s
brain disease. Because despite saying
only nice things about his reception
at the hospital, Brown and Whaley
were both subjected to nasty tweets from Trump. -The president weighed in,
saying, “Just left Dayton, Ohio, where I met with the victims
and families, law enforcement, medical staff,
and first responders. It was a warm
and wonderful visit. Tremendous enthusiasm
and even love. Then I saw
failed presidential candidate, “Zero Percent” Sherrod Brown
and Mayor Whaley totally misrepresenting
what took place inside of the hospital. -Their news conference after
I left El Paso was a fraud. It bore no resemblance
to what took place with those incredible people
that I was so lucky to meet and spend time with.
They were all amazing. -First of all,
in case you missed it, he accidentally wrote
“amazing-o.” Which I guess is a knock-off
version of SpaghettiOs. “Dad, we want SpaghettiOs
for dinner!” [ As Trump ]
Here, have some Amazing-Os. They’re just as good.
I bought them at ShopWrong. [ Laughter ] [ Normal voice ] Second,
and I’m asking this sincerely, what the [bleep]
are you talking about? How did you manage to take what they said about you
and get mad about it? What chemical are you missing
from your brain that makes you like this? Is it the same chemical
responsible for telling you which direction to walk in
so you don’t amble around in circles
on the White House lawn like an old man who wandered
away from the group home? I mean, look at him,
just shuffling around like he’s looking for
a golf ball. [ As Trump ]
You guys seen a Titleist with a dollar sign on it? [ Normal voice ] Gonna have to
put a sign around his neck that says, “If found, return
to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.” [ Laughter, cheers,
and applause ] Then, after Trump’s
unhinged tweet barrage, we got to watch the mayor of
Dayton find out in real time that Trump
had tweeted about her, read the tweet,
and try to figure out what the hell
he was talking about. -“Just left Dayton, Ohio. You got two tweets.Doble.-“Totally misrepresenting.” [ Mumbling ] -What does the tweet say? -I don’t — I mean, like,
I’m really confused. We said he was treated, like,
very well, so… -I’d love to hear what his — -I don’t know what he’s
talking about misrepresenting. Oh, well. You know. He lives in his world
of Twitter. -You know, it’s such a relief
to see a politician have a normal, human reaction
to Trump’s tweets. You usually either get
Republicans making excuses or Democrats justifiably angrily
denouncing him. But it’s rare to see someone
in real time just be like, “What? I — I — What? Well, I mean, I guess somebody put something
in his Amazing-Os.” [ Laughter ] But in that press conference,
Whaley and Brown did offer some justified criticisms
of Trump that had nothing to do with
the hospital visits. Brown, for example,
said Trump would never act on gun violence because
he and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are, of course,
beholden to the NRA. -Republicans for years now
have dug in and done the bidding of the NRA. The National Rifle Association,
the gun lobby gives millions of dollars
to Republican candidates and spends millions and millions
against Democrats like me that get an “F” from the NRA,
that stood up to the NRA. We can’t get anything done
in the Senate because Mitch McConnell and the President
of the United States are in bed with the gun lobby. -That’s true, but the only quibble I have
is with the metaphor. I don’t think Trump
ever goes to bed. I think he spends all night wandering around
the White House lawn looking for reporters
to yell at. [ As Trump ]
Where are you, Jake Tapper?! Come out!
[ Laughter ] But it’s true, of course. Trump takes his marching orders
on gun policy from the NRA. In fact yesterday
during a Q&A with reporters on the White House lawn
amid a national crisis over gun violence
and white supremacy, Trump said that
there was no political will for a ban on assault weapons
and offered some vague, half-hearted comments about
background checks where even he seemed unclear on
what exactly he was proposing. -I have had plenty of talks
over the last two days, and I think something
is going to be come up with — We are going to come up
with something that’s going to be
really very good, beyond anything
that’s been done so far. I think we can bring up
background checks like we have never had before. I think both Republican
and Democrats are getting close to
a bill on — to doing something
on background checks. -They’re doing something
on background checks. This is a national emergency,
and he talks about it with all the specificity
of a dad who has no idea where his kids are. “I don’t know, I think they’re
upstairs doing something on the computer.
I also think I heard a bobcat.” But Trump reportedly got a call
from NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre warning him to back off. -What we are told
by the reporting of “The Washington Post”
is that there was a Tuesday phone call from
Wayne LaPierre with the president
and the message from the
National Rifle Association would be that
the Trump supporters in that powerful organization
would not support the president if he were to move forward
with background checks. The message from the NRA
to the president was, “Careful about doing that.” That goes against what
the president has been saying publicly. -Of course it does.
Because you can’t trust anything this President says publicly. First of all, he barely said
anything to begin with. I mean, listen
to how vague he was. -I think something is going to
be come up with — We’re going to come up
with something that’s going to be
really very good, beyond anything
that’s been done so far. -He is a master of using
a bunch of words to say absolutely nothing. He always sounds like
the guy in a movie whose job it is to distract
the security guard while his partner steals
a painting from the Louvre. [ As Trump ] They are going to
come up with something, something that’s
gonna be so good, very good, beyond anything — That’s right. Roll it up. [ Normal voice ] Trump
and the NRA are closely linked for many reasons,
one of which is something they both have in common — They are grifters
and scam artists. Take for example Trump’s visit
to El Paso yesterday. This isn’t the first time
he’s been there. In fact, he held a rally there
in February. And his campaign racked up more
than half a million dollars in expenses owed
to the city of El Paso, expenses they still
haven’t paid. -Donald Trump
is going to El Paso, while he still owes the city
of El Paso over half a million dollars
from his last visit to El Paso. The president has
an outstanding bill of $569,204.63 for police
and public safety services associated with a February
campaign rally in El Paso. -Man, going back to El Paso when you owe the city half a
million dollars is a bold move. They’re going to have to put
the boot on Air Force One. [ Laughter ] In fact, the bill… [ As Trump ]
Let’s get out of here. Oh, no! [Bleep] [ Laughter ] [ Normal voice ] In fact, the
bill has actually gotten bigger the longer it goes unpaid. Trump owed an initial fee
of about $470,000, but the city tacked on
a 21% one-time late fee in June. And of course Donald Trump
has incurred a late fee. That’s so him! I’m surprised his oval office
desk isn’t covered in unreturned Blockbuster DVDs. [ As Trump ]
You guys seen “Tango & Cash”? It’s really good. Lot of chemistry
between the two leads. [ Laughter ] I’m a Tango guy. [ Laughter ] Teri — [ Laughs ] [ Laughter ] Got a young Teri Hatcher in it. [ Laughter ] [ Laughter, cheers,
and applause ] By the way — by the way — [ Cheers and applause ] By the way, at the same time Trump is ignoring a half-million
dollar debt to El Paso, he also scheduled a headline
fundraiser in the Hamptons where tickets run as high
as $250,000. But this is something Trump
has in common with the NRA. They’re also huge grifters, as we learned from
a recent string of financial scandals that
have nearly crippled the NRA. In fact, just yesterday, “The
Washington Post” reported that LaPierre sought to have
the nonprofit organization buy him a luxury mansion, selecting
a French-country-style estate in a gated Dallas-area
golf club, a 10,000-square-foot estate with lakefront
and golf course views on the market
for about $6 million. A $6 million mansion in Texas. Meanwhile, in New York,
$6 million will get you a two-bedroom condo, and your
landlord is an actual rat. [ Laughter and applause ] This explains so much, so much
about politics right now. Donald Trump and his fellow
grifters on the right sell their base racism
and paranoia, and all the while, they and their wealthy patrons
are cashing in. We have seen corruption and
racism from presidents before. But what Trump is doing now
is… -Beyond anything
that’s been done so far. -This has been “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪

100 thoughts on “Trump Attacks Biden; NRA Calls Trump: A Closer Look

  1. Trump: My critics are political people that are trying to make points
    Me: yes, good job, you finally learned what a fact is

  2. So Joe Biden probably just secured the Democratic nomination with his "get a life" comeback… I never expected him to say anything so slick, ever.

  3. I'd love and hate being in a tiff with this guy. He'd either make me laugh too hard to make a point or volley the focus of the argument too fast to maintain a dialogue. That said, who could stay mad at that face? He's always right 😉

  4. It took a lot of gun powder to get Trump's bed on fire before anybody got in it with him.


  5. Stumps doesn’t understand “sentences” he has never had one.
    Fat pig stands like a penguin trying to not look like a blimp. It’s not working.

  6. Is it endearing or embarrassing when Seth loses it laughing at his own jokes? I dont mean whats on the prompter from his writers, but when he is riffing. I think I'm loke 60/40 endearing but I'm honestly not sure.

  7. Recess for the republican senators was like walking into a pit of vipers ,inaction on gun control will do it every time, but with the NRA and Trump it's a DEAD issue what's a few more shooting, Hunter's need their AK's for deer hunting !

  8. Trump still doesn't get it, he's not wanted in El Paso or Dayton Ohio ,they should put down some spike strips for Air Force one !

  9. Did you know that despite Trump's reputation, he is only the 12th biggest account on Twitter, preceded by Justin Timberlake and Ariana Grande amongst others… The leader? BARACK OBAMA. Still rocking it, with 107 million followers, 50% more than Trump… Suck on that Orange.

  10. Professor who predicted Trump's victory says impeachment is next

  11. Let’s all stand with the students until all NRA and all weapons manufacturer money is forever out of buying off our democracy (among other changes)! As long as our system allows our politicians to personally profit from every gun sold and every bomb sold or dropped, mass shootings, terrorism & wars & will be inevitable. #getALLmoneyOut

  12. Trump is not a Swiss army knife (unlike Donald's real estate endeavors, the return on those things has been astronomic for decades), but he is a deity of distractions. Just when something new is uncovered making him and his crooked administration look even dirtier, he turns our attention away from it all, he does/says something even more "mind-bogglingly" idiotic than before to distract our attention from it all. Take buying Greenland for example…
    Now tell me that didn't take your mind off of his self-centered, cold-hearted response to those previous mass shootings, and his clear, undisputed relations with Jeffrey Epstein.
    They don't cal him our "Con Man Dare In Thief" for nothing…

  13. Isn't that thumb at 8:10 the same thumb Donald proudly saluted with while wife #3 held the baby recently orphaned in El Paso, whose parents were both gunned down when a Trump-supporter marched into a Walmart with an assault rifle intent on killing as many Hispanics as possible?
    It should be dubbed his Executive Assault Thumb.

  14. Djackass Drumpf credit rating has to be in the toilet! We shouldn’t have anyone in the WH who has a poor credit score and it’s obvious, if I don’t pay my bills my scores tank and since the orange blob doesn’t pay his bills his scores should really suck just like him!

  15. You know who talks like this…every single person who has had to lie and doesn't have a story ready. He repeats the same nonsense 10 different ways with no details just vague references, "it's going to be the best ever" I've never gotten a straight answer from a Trump supporter for this question; Would you be okay with Trump as your boss at work acting the way he does? If you say yes, then you are lying to yourself

  16. Sick to teeth of this rat face rodent with no talent slagging of Trump , Meyers wouldn’t have a show without trump , he wouldn’t slag of Obama, Trump is the president and deserves some respect, sick of these rich celebrities hateful attitude towards trump , they don’t care about USA just themselves and there millions in the bank, ordinary people want jobs less tax and money and a good future for there kids and if trump can deliver this so what .stop the crap about trump he is doing a great job

  17. We don't want to give up our guns because of fools like Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and the majority black Louisville city council. A wealthy black kid was assassinated causing the discovery that black gangs figured out the mayor and city council in fear of stupid black kids possibly being killed in accidents while being chased by the police had order LMPD not to pursue vehicles. When black gangs figured out LMPD wouldn't pursue they began to simply drive to their victims' homes and assassinate them. After the family of the black family sued over LMPD failing to pursue the gangs members and allowing them to assassinate their target the scandal broke out. Mayor Greg Fischer the black majority city council still hesitated to change pursuit policies even after knowing about the first few assassinations! Of LMPD's Chief of Police response to the assassination scandal, he had lied to the press and the people stating the pursuit changes were simply for "Admin purposes"! @t

  18. I am so utterly sick to death of Dump’s “I am the greatest” babble. “The strongest, very tough, biggest & better than anything else, really very good, beyond anything that’s ever been done before blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.” Literally nauseating. Someone please give him a colouring book version of a thesaurus please.


  20. I heard him tell a bunch of his supporters at a rally that Democrats wanted to tax them at a rate of 95%

    And they BELIEVED him.

    I don't know if any of them ever go home and Google his claims, but logically surely you would have to say to yourself "that doesn't sound quite right".

    Of course it ISN'T right.

  21. TRUMP acts more stupid (if that's possible) more mentally disabled, looks like a moron, and has passed his test on lunacy, he should be put to rest in a mental institution, or prison, AND someone needs to change the load he's carrying around in his OLD man diaper, as we are all tired of his bullCRAP! AND those REPEATED EMPTY WORDS of "it's beyond anything done before" if he thinks those words will get him votes, think again OLD MAN people are on to you ~~

  22. Dump45 is a Traitor POS! He listens to the National Russian Association NRA!! They're Traitors and Criminals and Putin's puppet show!! Working with Russian Spy Butina to launder Putin's 30 million dollars to BUY the GOP!! Justice for the American people is coming soon!!🇺🇸🌊🇺🇸🌊🇺🇸🌊🇺🇸🌊🇺🇸

  23. @ 6:20
    I like what this guy is saying, but… Holy crap! He sounds like Tom Waits' dad when he talks! I'm halfway expecting him to start talking about drinkin' $30 booze in a $6 room, or something.

  24. What a nut case……C’mon America. This is serious… HE won’t pay his bills? He can’t talk Coherently? He knows nothing about economic ‘s .what mess. Lapierre is a grifter , well Suited, well Lodged and as creepy as Trump is.

  25. This is what the United States Presidency looks like from the outside world:

  26. Pro Life = Pro Gun . Protect the babes so that they can grow up and shoot other children = Pro Death 💀 and keep letting them do it = Insanity at its lowest 😢

  27. Trump puffs out his chest so he can squeak out a presidential fart without the fake media from reporting it.

  28. OMG I think the man needs a psychiatrist. I think if he goes over the edge he might start dropping bombs with his military.

  29. The criminal justice put el Chapo in prison because of drug dealing. What are they waiting to sack this criminal trump from the w.h. and put him in prison until the end of his life.

  30. Ya know….Wayne LaPiere doesn’t sound to Amercian to me….

    And the Blockbuster “VHS” tapes would have been better Seth…. (you give him too much credit with renting “CD’s)

  31. He doesn’t ever pay his bills, haven’t you seen all the people that worked for him throughout the years, he doesn’t pay & they can tack on whatever they want, however he’s the type of person who will go to a wedding uninvited & take all the importance from the youngsters and demand to have all cameras on him, while he climbs onto the groom & brides decorated table only to poop into the punch bowl & realize he got out of the elevator on the wrong wedding & wrong floor, then won’t excuse himself while he holds up his trousers with one hand while he pulls his girlfriends lace panties that he forgot to pull up, so right in front of the cameras he pulls something that he’s dragging at the bottom of his pant leg accidentally holds the white lace panties in his hand while saying that Joe Biden deliberately pulled that panty trick on him, because he wasn’t with a 18 YO porno star that his son brought back in a Potus jumbo jet for his pleasure while the others are scramming to quite or work for any job where the entire nation hates his dad

  32. On 10 May 1996,
    12 days after 35 people were shot dead by a gunman at Port Arthur, Tasmania,

    Australia's state and federal governments agreed to enact uniform gun control laws. ..

    . Tens of thousands of gun owners also voluntarily surrendered additional, non-prohibited firearms

  33. 12 days after 35 people were shot dead by a gunman at Port Arthur, Tasmania,
    On 10 May 1996,
    Australia's state and federal governments agreed to enact uniform gun control laws.
    12 DAYS LATER >>>>>>>>>
    Tens of thousands of gun owners also voluntarily surrendered additional, non-prohibited firearms

  34. Some folks are now calling Donnie 'the Nastydon' because he is a clumsy political dinosaur with delusions of grandeur, who believes that the only people who deserve to have any Rights in this world are white men. The Nastydon stomps through the world, destroying everything around him with his clumsiness and greed.

  35. trumps guilt knowing they were using children as political props to make him look good. There were no children hurt in the Dayton mass shooting. trump was misrepresenting not the Mayor.

  36. For "people" like trump to exist there has to be unprincipled and spineless people to be complicent. People just need to say no to trump, even if he threatens or offers to pay.

  37. I have, do, and will, VOTE. even though I believe that bush and Trump proves that the electoral college will always supersede the people's vote!
    I still vote.
    Even though, money has corrupted the electoral system, and it has allowed for a crony capitalists Republican War State PLUTOCRACY that will gladly sacrifice us to a CHRISTIAN-DOLLAR-GOD!!
    I still vote.
    even with Trump's pedophile fascist kakistocracy is looming over the people ready to destroy us, and consider us nothing more than FREE-RANGE SLAVES.
    I vote!

  38. TheRepublicans should stop calling Reagan a great president if they cannot reenact assault weapons restrictions. One was put in place after the assassination attempt on Reagan. It’s gone now. One would think it would honor Reagan to restore a sane gun policy.

  39. Trump figures saying he did okay is misrepresenting, and he's probably right. But here's my question: Is LaPear a family name based on the shape of their heads?

  40. Cracked me up how he accused lawmakers of being scared of the NRA right after he capitulated to the NRA and started parroting their "slippery slope" talking point.

    He always accuses others of doing what he is actively doing.

    Only his base falls for it.

  41. I am register Republican but I think we should disband our two political organizations. We are all human, we are all created by God so I now consider my self as American not Republican or Democrat. Let's stop running everyone down and let's see unity that is the only way this country will be straighten out. That will take time but if we don't get started now it will never get done

  42. "…fighting on line is his life…" What could be easier? The bucket of chicken is right there with him, the hamberders are within arm's reach, he doesn't have to get off the couch, and there's no one within earshot to critique his poor command of English.
