-Well, it was
another super-chill weekend with the President
of the United States retweeting a deranged
conspiracy theory accusing a previous president
of murder. For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ] Donald Trump has changed many
things in his life, but there are a few constants. He’s always been a racist,
he’s always been a con artist, and he’s always been
a conspiracy theorist. Trump has paranoid fantasies
about everything from climate change
to government surveillance to the food he eats. According to the book
“Fire and Fury,” he had a long-time fear
of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat
at McDonald’s. Nobody knew he was coming,
and the food was safely premade. Okay, first of all,
at this point, I think they know you’re coming. You are the norm of McDonald’s. If you want to catch
a restaurant off guard, walk into a Just Salad. Also really hammers home how
anti-science our president is that he eats fast food
toavoidbeing poisoned. [ As Trump ]
“My body is a temple. Two Filet-o-Fish, please.” [ Normal voice ]
During a 2016 town hall on CNN, Trump basically admitted it
to Anderson Cooper. -I’m a person
that I like cleanliness, I like clean, and the one thing
about the big franchises — You have to have a certain — You know,
because of the importance — One bad hamburger,
you could destroy a McDonald’s. One bad hamburger,
you take Wendy’s and all these other places,
and they’re out of business. You can’t do it. So, I’m a very clean person.
I like cleanliness. And I think you’re better off
going there than maybe some place
that you have no idea where the food’s coming from. -First of all, I would not call
you a very clean person. The only clean thing about you
is your desk, and that’s because
you don’t do anything. [ Cheers and applause ] Look at that. That looks like a Hollywood tour where they let you take a photo
on the set of “The West Wing.” [ Laughter ] There’s not a single piece
of paper on that desk. When the next president
moves in, all they’re gonna find are the water rings left
by his Diet Cokes. Also, you only think
McDonald’s are clean because you send other people
to pick up the food. You based your opinion of
McDonald’s on the commercials. [ As Trump ] “Here’s the money. And remember — Only take food
directly from the clown. He’s the only one I trust.” [ Normal voice ]
Of course, Trump launched his political career
by fabricating a racist conspiracy theory about
President Obama’s birthplace, and it wasn’t just that Trump
accused Obama of being born in Kenya. He also invented
an insane fantasy where Obama had faked documents,
and at one point, he even claimed his own
investigators were discovering evidence that proved
Obama was hiding the truth. -Three weeks ago,
when I started, I thought he was probably born
in this country, and now I really have a much
bigger doubt than I did before. -He doesn’t have
a birth certificate, or he hasn’t shown it. He has what’s called
a certificate of live birth. That is something
that’s easy to get. When you want
a birth certificate, it’s very hard to get. -But it’s considered the
equivalent in the state — -Excuse me.
It’s not the equivalent. -In the state of Hawaii, they said they have seen
his document. -I saw his.
I read it very carefully. Doesn’t have a serial number.
Doesn’t have a signature. There’s not even a signature. -The biggest lie in that
interview was Trump saying Obama didn’t have
a birth certificate. The second biggest lie
was Trump saying he read something carefully.
[ Laughter ] I’d be shocked if he could make
it through something as long as a birth certificate. To help him fall asleep
at night, he probably reads
a business card. [ As Trump ]
“Oh, they also have fax!” [ Normal voice ] Anyway,
continue with your bull[bleep]. -I have people that have
actually been studying it, and they cannot believe
what they’re finding. -You have people now down there
searching in Hawaii? -Absolutely. And they cannot
believe what they’re finding. -He said that eight years ago,
and he’s never once explained what they were finding,
and the reason is because there were
no investigators searching for documents
in Hawaii. If he did send
anyone down there, it was probably
his two weird sons. “You can’t believe
what we’re finding, Dad! Their rocks have juice in them!” [ Laughter ] “Did you tell him
about the juice rocks?!” “I’m telling him right now!” [ Cheers and applause ] Trump even went so far
as to claim that the contemporaneous
newspaper accounts of Obama’s birth
in local Hawaiian newspapers had to have been faked. -There were two announcements
the week he was born in both Honolulu newspapers
saying that he was born, okay? That is impossible
to make happen if he had not been born
in the hospital. So, I just dismissed it, but
you made a big deal out of it. -Bill, I grew up
with Wall Street geniuses. What they do in terms of fraud
and how they change documents — And I’ll tell you something. If you notice, those dates were
three days later, and here’s what I ask people. Who puts announcements? Here are two poor people, a man
and a woman with no money. They have a baby. There’s
announcements in the newspaper? -The grandparents did it.
-The grandparents. Nelson Rockefeller doesn’t put
announcements — -Sure, there are birth
announcements all the time. -I’ve never seen one.
-Really?! -No, I’ve never seen one.
-No, they’re common. -I’ve never seen one.
-Maybe you’ve never seen one because your parents
never did one for you. If anything, they probably took
out an add that said, “Donald Trump was born.
We’re sorry.” Then, of course, there’s
the racist conspiracy theory that Trump has repeated since
he was elected that millions
of undocumented immigrants are voting illegally
in states like California. In fact, he just repeated
it last month in a speech to a group
of young conservatives, and it barely registered
as a blip on the news because we’re so numb to it now. -And then those illegals get out and vote
because they vote anyway. Don’t kid yourself. Those numbers in California
and numerous other states, they’re rigged. You got people voting
that shouldn’t be voting. [ Cheers and applause ] They vote many times,
not just twice, not just three times,
they vote — it’s like a circle. They come back,
they put a new hat on. They come back,
they put a new shirt on. And in many cases,
they don’t even do that. You know what’s going on. -I love the moment he’s like, [as Trump] “Oh, [bleep]
what’s the word for this? Uh, I know there’s a —
I’m gonna fall back on circle!” [ Normal voice ]
Trump has always been an unhinged conspiracy theorist, and we saw that on display
yet again this weekend when he retweeted
an insane conspiracy theory tying the Clintons to the death
of convicted pedophile and accused sex trafficker
Jeffrey Epstein. -We begin this morning
with a retweet from the President
of the United States. Not a message about healing
or uniting the country one week after
two horrifying massacres, not about the victims
of those tragedies. Instead, President Trump, using
his massive Twitter platform, 63 million followers, to spread
a deranged conspiracy theory tying the death of pedophile
Jeffrey Epstein in prison to the President’s former
political rivals, the Clintons. I’m not gonna show you
the tweet. -Think about that. The President’s tweets are
so insane, the news can’t even
show them now. It’s getting to the point where
when he talks to reporters, they’re gonna have to blur out
his entire face. They’re gonna have to treat him
like accidental nudity. We elected President Nip Slip. [ Laughter ] Trump’s penchant for peddling
insane conspiracy theories isn’t just
a weird personality quirk. It has real consequences
for real people. For example, he’s repeatedly
given voice to the racist and anti-Semitic
conspiracy theory that Democrats and the Jewish
philanthropist George Soros are somehow funding a plot
to have refugees invade the United States by organizing
caravans of migrants. -The Democrats want caravans. They like the caravans. A lot of people say, “I wonder
who started that caravan.” You know how
the caravan started? Does everybody know
what this means? I think the Democrats had
something to do with it. -Do you think somebody’s
funding the caravan? Do you think anyone’s
paying for the caravan? -I wouldn’t be surprised.
Yeah, I wouldn’t be surprised. -George Soros? -I don’t know who,
but I wouldn’t be surprised. A lot of people say yes. -“I don’t know who,
but a lot of people say yes.” He always tries to do this move
where he pretends he doesn’t know anything, but
a lot of people are saying it. I’m starting to think
these people are just other
Trump personalities. Golf Trump says
it’s the Democrats, Sweaty Trump says it’s Soros, and Empty Desk Trump says,
“Cheese!” Of course, Trump’s not alone in
peddling this racist paranoia. The right-wing media outlets
he loves and echos constantly repeat
deranged theories about invading refugees, the same language used
by white supremacists. In fact, multiple Fox hosts have
defended the President’s use of the word “invasion”
to describe desperate refugees seeking asylum, including
Fox host Jeanine Pirro, who used a very bizarre analogy
on her show Saturday night. -Stop blaming the President
for this stuff. Even the guy said
before President Trump, “I didn’t like the people
coming in,” so let’s stop blaming Trump.
-He used that rhetoric. That’s what makes it dangerous.
-Oh, come on. -Hey, we all use
the same language! We speak English!
So what?! -I don’t call illegal immigrants
“invaders.” -Yeah, well, a lot of people do. You know, I watch cartoons,
they have invaders, too, you know, from Mars. Stop with this craziness! -You can’t say,
“Stop with the craziness” right after you say,
“I watch cartoons, and they have invaders
from Mars.” [ Laughter ]
That is as jarring as hearing a dog scream, “No pets allowed.” -By the way,
the same weekend Trump retweeted his deranged Epstein theory,
he was in the Hamptons for a series of fundraisers
where tickets ran as high as $250,000, which sums up so much of our politics
right now — a paranoid president spreading
unhinged racist conspiracies while raking in millions from
a crowd of mega-rich supporters who don’t care as long as
they can line their own pockets. Meanwhile, most sane people
are saying… -Stop with this craziness! -This has been “A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ]

  1. We are all under a conspiracy, thinking our votes matter when it's the electoral college that chooses for us! Ugh I call it "The Robin Hood Theory"! A bunch of phony Kings are in charge!! Ugh #RutherfordBHayes #HistoryRepeats #NCLBA

  2. I'm constantly entertained by this guy. I can't even blame the cheap lies on him he was caught on; no time for yesterdays topics as he is always throwing out twitter posts. Of course he is not a good politican, on the other hand I barely can't remember a good politic at all. Just look at our Merkel, you can't listen to her in german language as her dead tone and repeating words only put you to sleep. Trump only knows a few words more and is a hell lot more entertaining. I really enjoy this more than Netflix today – and since Sanders was out this is all I can care for. #noconspiracy

  3. McDonald’s workers around the world……..spit in every burger you make, we need to play the odds👌. On behalf of rational society’s…….thx guys✌️

  4. the more I watch Trump or listen to him-the uglier he gets. He is a horrible and insane human (?) being indeed.

  5. Where is a good assassin when you need one. I can't take him anymore. I fear we are going to have to deal with the idiot four more or more years because he is a DICKtator.

  6. The whole global community of people who have that rare condition where your bladder leaks into your braincase admire Donald Trump. People whose brain is floating in piss seldom rise to being elected to anything.

  7. Who honest to God still supports him? They must be a nutty as he is. Trump has 63 million followers but 62.9 are laughing at him.

  8. Trump’s petty moves on migrant workers look immature when you consider the thousands of acres of unpicked fruits and vegetables going to “rot” in the fields. I guess Trump’s newly found American prosperity don’t mind the Billions of Dollars needed to prop up the farmers because of their inability to find field workers…

  9. Piro is one seriously scary lady thing. Needs a change of wardrobe, maybe a new flower printed straightjacket. At least take her off the streets.

  10. First of all buddy. Shut up.. second of all,, it's funny how you complain about crime and all that nonsense and how foreign people are in your country u. s.a. make and doing crime, but when one man says hey let us make a boader around the country to prevent crime and keep the foreign people coming into your country that Rob everyone,, you have something to say about just so you can say you are not racist, but you also don't want foreign people in your making nonsense do you. But you not doing a dam thing to keep foreign people from killing raping and stealing are you.. so shut up.. some one is trying.. You sit in your choosy little place and don't feel with every dat stuff,, no the real people Do.. so shut up you hypocrite.. least someone is trying like Donald trump.. You just sit and complain and never do a dam thing. Because you are scared. It's not racisim it's realazim.. You can't tell a person they are rong because they black, sorry but that is sacisim. You can't tell someone they rong because they black, are you stupid . If a person is rong, they are rong no matter there skin colour you stop kiss ass.. that is what you are.. A KISS ASS..

  11. Trump retweeted a ''DERANGED CONSPIRACY THEORY'' also everyone in the comments TRUMP KILLED EPSTEIN

    Lol, get over your hypocrisy

  12. lol… i made the mistake of going to one mac in USA ( Boston ) and it looked like a pigsty compared to the ones in europe…even a rodent i saw on Cheers…if it were here , it would be closed in a blink…

  13. I think the FBI has Epstein alive and well in protective custody to keep him from getting killed as he has a long list of wealthy and powerful people he could bring down

  14. You sond like Trevor nohor. He dose not know if he is black or white. Because when he was 16 to 23 he was white or wanted to be white,, but now everything has charged, now he wants to be black. Wow,,, can he choose a colour and get over with it now.. You people are stupid.. but hey you just a actor. You just go with flow but never know what's right..as long you get played,, hey Trevor. It's funny how he is so for is county but he is in a nother county running he county down.. wow I hate him.. a two faced b.s….

  15. Why are you promoting this waste of space racist? It is sufficient to the day to speak about his racist tweets and tv inteviews – only.

  16. No way someone bothered to murder him because obviously nobody cares about the sexual predators who have already been accused in the Whitehouse.

  17. "You've got people voting who shouldn't be voting" is exactly why Donald Trump is the President, so what is he complaining about?

  18. The Pittsburgh Tree of Life shooter believed in the "George Soros funds the caravans" conspiracy spouted by our president. Trump is inciting violence.

  19. It's telling how much of a psychologically fucked up a person is when Bill O'Reilly is the voice of reason in the room.

  20. Yet, the only case of voter fraud recently was a trump voter who went to two different polling places to vote and got caught. I have NEVER seen someone try to vote more than once because there are people there to keep track of you voting. How stupid can he be? Never mind…dumber than rocks and the people who believe him are crazy.

  21. the most guilty accuses someone else= I learned that in grade school.
    Trump & Barr are the most guilty and I would bet you they are trying to get Epstein's money and his island.
    Trump's lying during that interview on his birther conspiracy make you sick.
    to think this IS his mental illness logic.
    time for a mental back ground check on this vile insidious pedophile who stole the
    Presidency of the United States.
    p.s. REALLY JUDGE JEANNE – YOU SHOULD STOP! YOUR FACE LIFT IS SHOWING.

  22. We know you like "cleanliness" that's why you were the only one walking around with S#!+ paper on your shoe entering AF1!

  23. Those newspaper birth announcements are how I did a lot of my genealogy reports. It was very very common back then to announce in the newspapers someone having a kid. He is so out of touch with reality in general, it's so sad

  24. I wish somebody would give him a bad hamburger, food poisoning and death laced please. The illegals go out to vote- like the Russians did?

  25. Please blur trumps face out and change his voice if you must report anything about this moron in the future. I found it just a little more tolerable when his face was blurred. Thank you so much for your kindness! It could be a small step towards healing our over stimulated minds🤔

  26. All of Trump's clips were replete of stupidity and I feel much stupider for having heard his stupid words. Goddamn it.

  27. Who are all these "people"…..he obviously does not have the brain power to say FBI, CIA or DHS…..they are just all "his people" the man is unhinged…god help the USA

  28. While specifically and exclusively implicating Bill Clinton is probably silly and fairly ridiculous, the idea that certain politically and socially powerful people (on both sides of the political spectrum) may have resorted to ensuring Mr. Epstein's death is not so implausible. By the very nature of being wealthy, powerful, well-connected, and at least potentially corrupt, multiple people may have easily had the means as well as the motive to quietly cancel Jeffrey Epstein before attempting to convince the public that the murder was instead a suicide. The possibility (please note that I am calling this a "possibility" and not a "certainty", as ruling out either seems to me very shortsighted) that Epstein was assassinated and that event was then covered to appear as a suicide to people on the outside is indeed a conspiracy theory (as, by definition, this kind of an occurrence would necessarily involve certain people planning, or conspiring, to commit a criminal act and then deceive most everyone else), but not all conspiracy theories are ridiculous–it all depends on the situation, facts, and evidence involved.

    For more on why Epstein's cause of death may not be as certain as many prominent talk show hosts and newscasters seem to indicate, please see the following Secular Talk channel YouTube videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NU2IPT9r3M, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lFnYcpl998&t=1s. Kulinski's viewpoint is by no means unbiased in these clips, but I refer to them as counterpoints to the unstated bias that more established talk show and news media have demonstrated in refusing to question the most prominent narrative regarding how Jeffrey Epstein died. Kulinski's points and the evidence cited in the Secular Talk videos above are worth considering completely on their own merit, regardless of who said them or the potentially massive bias of such a person/group.

  29. I'm confused as to how The Criminal in Chief can spout conspiracy theories that Dems had Epstein silenced, when one of the most likely suspects to be implicated by him is probably Trump himself. No smoke without fire and his attempts at mis-direction defy all sense!!?

  30. Trump probably payed someone (Barr) to convince Epstein to hang himself
    and now he's trying to put the attention and blame on Bill Clinton.

  31. What else do you think would this fat fool state and it would originate from the traitors from the republicans and the ungodly evangelical nuts. This man lives in a world of far fetched ideas he creates or the republicans and the racists. Fact no brag

  32. Look up the word invasion before trying to use it to describe people who are seeking help. Well if we are doing that. Christopher Columbus invaded the Americas so we all should leave besides the so called American Indian. Correct?

  33. Trump knows all about circles. It's called the "Monks Circle" where every billionaire in his cabinet sits down and takes the guy behind up the bum.. Even Betsy De Vos wears a stap-on dick so she can take part.

  34. There's no paper on Trumps desk because his aides ate it all so he didn't see anything. Also, is paper a carb or veggie? And the ink on the paper has to be carb for sure right?

  35. Trump is clearly getting into Hitler-Bunker-mode by now: nothing is as it seems and his weird imaginations is the truth. I wouldn't be unhappy if someone put him out of his misery, such as put him out of office: because that would make EVERYONE HAPPY! I kind of like a happy ending and I'd loath to see the entirety of the US to get into their own bunker-mode of denial of their political reality. The US is in a sad state as it is. It's now one of the worlds most pitied countries in the world. It's hard to fall that hard. And the only antidote is for normal Americans to take back the political reins, hopefully not through revolution or a coup, but just managing to oust this man from power and put him into jail – where he belongs with his cronies.

  36. Epstein was probably murdered, that’s obvious. So many well connected and vulnerable elites needed him silenced. Mission accomplished.

  37. Fox and friends: "Obama is the worst, Obama is Muslim"
    Late Night and Co: "Trump is the worst, Trump is racist"
    Your lack of perspective makes me sick. The audience can't possibly be THAT STUPID?!

  38. Wasnt Obama 'the father of Isis' though?😂 No surprises if the Clintoms snuck into a federal prison building Mission Impossible style, murdered Epstein in his cell and then meep meeped outta there.

  39. Trump always said any thing without evident to back up..next time people will not be surprise if he say : KING KONG COME TO USA. If any one want to win trump mouth just don’t let him talk over you or he never let you finish what you want to say..if you can shut his mouth within 20 seconds he will lose..i bet you

  40. LOL fear of poisoning is such a lame excuse for eating junk food 😂 We can all tell you're lying, fatass pig is just embarrassed to admit he has the immature palate of a child! Unbelievable how literally everything about him is so unsophisticated, literally inside and out. You are what you eat afterall: junk!

  41. so why won't the Dems accuse Trump (you know, the president & obvious culprit) of the murder?
    it didn't even dawn on Seth to point it out

    answer: because the Dems are too spineless too pathetic & too stupid to do so. face it Repubs are orders of magnitude smarter than Dems, and devilishly so
    that's why the Dems are poised to lose the presidentials (again). PC LOSERS
