Mike Lindell is about the only Republican who actually believes the election was stolen. He's like the kid in school who never gets the joke.
Guess the January insurrection were just the slow kids who all got lost looking for the bathroom.
@Patricia Ackerman and the total LACK of evidence that it was stolen doesn't seem to make any difference to his base. Somebody show us your evidence. Lindell talks about it but has never produced any evidence.
Well thats so far from the truth. There is so much proof that it was stolen. Just because you refuse to see it makes it no less true
Nothing delights me more than Seth losing the back half of a word to a giggle. It's such a joy to laugh along with someone who not only allows himself to have fun, but also allows us to see it.
Sometimes the comment-stealing bots will only use a portion of the comment they're stealing.
Maybe it's to make it less obvious that they're a bot, since there aren't two exact same posts?
@90s kid *Verbatim* with unique syntax, not “highly similar”. And I sort the comments in chronological order. So, no, there was no algorithmic interference.
Clip-Share's algorithm is designed to display similar comments together, which is why you often see what seems to be highly similar comments juxtaposed within a short distance of each other
@latenightist we wee hour wordsmiths deserve credit where due ✌️
@WhatIfSchrödinger’sBoxWasACoffin? thank you, that’s so kind! I was confused last night bc I couldn’t find the comment but I saw it this morning (and ended up more confused lol). I appreciate that you flagged it for me!
Seth making Seth laugh is pretty much the best thing out there.
@Mary Rose Kent not at all.
@Black Wind Fire And Steel (Thrash)
So…you’re being forced to watch this?
Someone has to.
Closer looks are by far my favorite segments that Seth does.
It was mine too until the creation of Corrections.
It’s absolutely shocking that Trump ever held any type of political office, let alone being the President of the United States. Totally humiliating and embarrassing.
@Anti Hypocrisy - You are that bail bond guy aren’t you…
American intellect, baby.
"Look at that baby boy"
For real, Seth, I cannot say enough just how impressive it is how your show has evolved since you took over at Late Night. There's a lot of people out there saying that late night talk shows are bad now, but you are a true exception.
@Lance Ash tears streaming down his face
@Still Here Lots of people are saying it. Big strong men with tears in their eyes are coming up to me and saying it.
For comedy they're bad, but they're better at reporting the news than CNN or Fox.
Many people say…
Praying DeSantis gets the nomination. Only guarantees Trump would run third party and burn the party to the ground without giving it a second thought.
If wishes could come true.🙏
@CDAWG 22 with that profile picture anything you say is just disregarded lmao
@Johan Vajse you clearly dont understand how voting works lmaooo
Every time Trump says "that's okay" softly, he means, "That's unacceptable and I will get my revenge if it's the last thing I do."
and he typically does lol
@Rick Bean it's what he thinks being "a businessman" actually means
@bennyg That is a very well thought out and written analysis of one of Trumps many 'skills'. He is actually a master at one thing, and that is manipulation.
Make American great again put Trump in jail.
nicely put ☝️
If Mike Lindell is still considered a "leader" in the Republican Party, that's not a good sign.
In the Republikkan party, your leadership potential is measured by how much money you have, not actual leadership ability.
This is so depressing... who's going to go for it and finally give him what he deserves? This segment made me remember how hard I cried that day in November 2016. I wasn't wrong then and I hope I don't have to do that again.
Me too. I was so sad and angry. Honestly was for 4 years. I felt like I was on constant alert, even if I didn’t know what for. I hope that makes sense.
It was a day that will live in infamy. I didn't cry. I was furious. I remember going out . The city was silent. People I saw were in shock. I had a knot in my stomach that lasted 4 years. I don't ever want to feel that way again.
Me too! I couldn't watch the news for weeks after that depressing day.
I never tire of Seth Meyers jokes about Republicans
@Winston Smith Democrats have never played the game hard core and cutthroat the way the GQP have. I worry about the same types of things as you, but do we really want politicians that are crass and ruthless like that. In winning that war we would lose what we were fighting for. I would be happy if Seth were aware of the implications of the timing and took considerations to prevent unnecessary harm.
@CDAWG 22 If Seth makes jokes about Biden, he might not run again. Seth should do everything in his power to defend Biden and make fun of Republicans.
@Winston Smith Yeah, basically lost because of New York electorate.
@Play Disc Golf I love political humor. But I think the dems should be off limits from criticism.
@Chris Pittman My only wish is that Seth would have told even more jokes about Republicans. If he did, maybe the Dems wouldn't have lost the House
I will never get tired of Seth's Mike Lindell impression
His best impression by far!! I could laugh at it all day
Biden "Please search and find them all."
Pence "Oh Lord, did I do that?"
Trump " Mine, all mine! I declassified them with my mind! My precious! MINE!!!!"
@Kehath He’s done OK
@Dan McKee I see what you did there
Seeing Chris Christie criticizing Donald Trump is like seeing Stalin calling out Hitler for "being too violent."
@Angiebear thanks for the sympathy. But like I said it wasn’t bad. We now live back in Texas. Near the land the Tonkawa were removed. I was raised thinking I was Cherokee. But after years of not knowing my dad. My sister found him. He says we were never Cherokee. That he is Pawnee. I speak Cherokee. Because that was what I raised thinking we were. But the camp at Tonkawa. Had no DNA, or birth certificates. So many tribes got lumped in and mixed up at Tonkawa. By dad was adopted by a British woman. Who had a Christian last name. That my dad had to go by. But really we have no clue what his real name was. Or his parents were. The orphanages, and Christian boarding schools, were selling native kids, well into the 1960s!
@Angiebear it wasn’t bad at Tonkawa at all. Like I said I didn’t even know it was a P.o.w. Camp until I was in 6th grade. And went from a farm school house off Hubbard Road. To enter middle school in nearest town of Blackwell Oklahoma.
@Melting Pot I’m so sad that that happened to you but happy you at least have some cherished memories of your time. My great grandmother was taken from her tribe in Canada as a child. Kidnapped really. She was MicMac. Was forced to become catholic and wasn’t allowed to speak her language. Even had to change her name. I knew her as a child. She didn’t like to speak about it except meeting my great grandfather at mass. Honestly had no idea these things were going on in America as late as the 80s. Ty for enlightening me. Got some reading to do.
@Angiebear I lived in one internment camps. The Tonkawa p.o.w. Camp in Oklahoma, until 1980. It interned Tonkawa Comanche, and Cherokee, Pawnee, Shawnee, that got mixed up. But the Tonkawa p.o.w. Camp also interned Germans during world war 2. When I was a kid, at 7 years of age. I thought the p.o.w. was a nod to “pow wows”. Didn’t know what a prisoner of war p.o.w. meant.
I had my first kiss there, and first swimming lesson in the pond there.
@Melting Potnot to mention the camps we put Japanese Americans into DURING WW2.
I love Seth's impression of Lindell 😂
@Becca_SoCal LoL it really is, but he nails it every time!
It’s so loud though!! I always have to adjust the volume when he does that impression! 😅😅😅
In mere seconds, Seth invoked the power of Drunk Uncle AND Stefon, I swear I will never tire of this show
LMAO!!!! I was thinking the very same thing about Stefon when Seth covered his mouth with his fingers trying not to laugh. You know, they were very close on SNL. 😉
During a Republican debate in 2016 , Jeb Bush said to Trump : " you're not going to insult your way to the presidency ". GOD how I wish he was correct .
@Tony Monte hehehe you and Cameron can go to the head of the class. I did, in fact, borrow that one from the happiest man on earth, Stephen Colbert.
Aint jeb bush the guy that said "please clap" how can anyone take him seriously?
Knock it off. Jed was Good governor and btw ,he knows what the nuclear triad is .
@Cameron Sitton Yes, it does!
The problem is that justice delayed doesn't feel like justice
I hope these vile and evil people never get real power back. It's bad enough that they STILL have ANY power over anything!
It's such a joy to laugh along with someone who not only allows himself to have fun, but also allows us to see it.
bro why the copy-paste?
bro why the copy-paste
Your whole comment is half of someone else’s comment. Verbatim. 😳
We all looked 12 years younger back in 2016. Even Seth.
It ravaged the health of the nation. The stress weakened us, and covid marched right in.
@EH it was absolutely hell. . Every SINGLE . . DAY!
Right? No way I wanna live through the last few years again 😱
DeSantis in those boots just kills me every time 😂
akathleenlackman Sadly he is going to walk his way to the Whitehouse with those boots. Let's pray to God that he does not or its going to be worst than Trump.
Those are shrimp boots and are common on the coast down south. He just looks idiotic in them, though!
His PR people must really hate him 🤭🤭
Thank God for Seth getting us through these bizarre times! 👍 & Mike Pillow.. 🤣 😜
That was hilarious. Great job as always, Seth!
DeSantis stole those white boots from the green M&M.
DeSantis *is* the green m&m!
actually , she borrowed them them from the poofter !!
Your Lindell and Tucker Carlson are absolute magic.
Agree, but I love the Lindsey Graham bits where he's yelling at Mee-maw
@Sven Elven No-one needs more Lindsay Graham.
I need more Lindsey Graham though!
Correction: while no one at the Federal level is seemingly pursuing charges, the state of Georgia is going after him for his other "perfect phone call"
I hope several of them are found guilty!!
And hopefully go through! and! (hopefuflly) we'll _finally_ get to karma with a found guilty. Knowing Drumpf's luck? somehow it'll fall of the rails.
I think Seth hit it on the head when he said that prosecutors and everyone are sitting on their hands waiting for someone else to stop him
Seth is an extremely funny person.
plus his writing team is the best in the business
Absolutely! My favorite late night host, no contest. :)
Seth , your becoming more and more entertaining, thank you.
Although Mark Twain said, "If (he) was drowning, I'd throw him an anvil", and James Carville said "When your opponent is drowning, throw him an anvil.", no one but Terry Sullivan ever said "Throw him a brick." Trust a Republican get it wrong.
Sounds like the philosophy of Road Runner to Wile E. Coyote!!!
We need more anvils!
Anvils for freedom!
I love how seth can keep from breaking during a joke, then immediately cracks himself up after. shows how much he believes in the quality of the jokes.
Seth calling 2016-Seth a beautiful baby boy is so heartwarming
"Insanity is repeating the same thing over and over again while expecting different results."
Seth's Lindell is absolute gold 🤌
😂🤣yes I just start screaming laughing everytime😂🤣
i want one of Lindell auditioning to be in Fargo.
Need to add more of Minnesota accent 😂
Seth ought to get an Emmy for the "Bing, Bing, Boop" joke. I laughed so hard!!
Nah, Ron stole those boots from the sexy green M&M. 😂
It's referred to as the "Bystander Effect" when everyone sits on their hands waiting for someone else to intervene during an emergency.
Seth and his impressions are the schtick!!!
Da Shtick!!!! XooX
Lindell wanted to win but his hopes were smothered.
Seth, I love that you no longer ware a Jacket and Tie - makes it feel more like just a bunch of friends hanging out. Keep breaking down and building back up late night TV Talk shows. PS Jokes Seth can't Tell, and Corrections are so Wonderful, I LMAO.
Seth's impression of Mike Lindell is his best - it blows me away every time!
Happy Monday Everyone!!!!!!!!!! It's Time For A Closer Look!!!!!!!!!! 👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀👀😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice comment 👍 thanks!
As always, great show, thanks
Casual shirt Seth rules. I laughed so hard at this Closer Look. Never go back to the suits!
Love the closer look! Never ceases to make me laugh!
No Seth, it was only the DEEP State. That bunch is so goofy. Thanks for posting & laughs; helps elevate my mood.
Seth's impression of Lindell makes me lol every time!!
Mike's just itching to be lumped in with the rest of the GOP when they get thrown behind... Da Bars!
The GOP: "I wanna work closer with Mike but not so close that I get sued into bankruptcy over the voices in his head that tell him to slander multibillion dollar companies"
The Mike Lindell impersonations are so on point 😂
Lindell being head of the RNC would have been glorious.
Seth's impersonation of Mike Lindell is EVERYTHING
Seth’s talent is boundless😂❤
This episode got two legit laughs out of me. Good job!
this was a really great closer look! genuinely insightful commentary AND funny as hell!
Thank you Seth.
8:40 "Hope isn't a winning strategy." - 2008 Obama has entered the chat.
The Lindell impression is just so good
I remember back in 2016 when we all said it was a parallel to 1933. Someone had better put a stop to this before we parallel 1939 or worse!
It is almost a requirement to break, be accused of breaking, cover up the breaking of, or be willing to break some laws and ethical guidelines.
I'm glad Lindell is part of the RNC leadership, and I'm very excited for the next elections! I hope they win as much as they have thus far.
I've always LOVED "A Closer Look" but this one was Extra Good !! 🤣🤣
The time loop thing slayed me.
All of these are great. But this one is one of the best. The wake up bit was hysterical. This one is brilliant from top to bottom.
Oh sweet baby Hey-seus! The Mike Lindell voice just doesn't get old!!!!!
It's Da Best!
Seth, you do the best impressions!
Someone Photoshop a big slouchy hat on Desantis and he'll look like a Smurf with those boots LMAO
I'm here for the Mike Lindell impression, and I'm not leaving disappointed! 🤣🤣🤣
Correction: Fat makes people more buoyant so it wouldn't only take a pebble to sink him like you said, he would be considerably harder to sink than the average person.
@Mary White worth a try
Keep the Mike Lindell impressions coming!
My absolute, absolute favorite impersonation is Seth’s Mike Lindell.
Makes me laugh every time.
…the tortoise and DA HARE!!!
Yes! Bill Swerski was wonderful
for me is the eric Trimp impersonations going back YEARs . . .
RNC elections are like rewatching your high school’s Enchantment Under the Sea Prom’s crowning of the King and Queen.
Correction: if this was a time loop it would be 2015, not 2016
@WishIWasCatLadyVivian That's not true. We get it but we still pull it apart.
@Busy Lawyer Bee Corrections ONLY exists because the "jackyls" don't get the joke.
@Thomas K 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 God, yes!!!! Ever since this show got the idea of doing Corrections (because of the random factual errors that people would point out) it's become worse because people find the most inane thing to "correct". It's comedy and stretching the truth a bit to fit the joke is expected. If they don't get that, then comedy is not their thing. To me, I think they do it because their correction might be one the show chooses to be on air. What a life to live!!!!!
@Thomas K So there's this internet exclusive segment on Fridays called 'Corrections'. You should tune in so you can learn what a joke is.
Tommy, Corrections is the joke!
Please someone splice Lindell's "wake up" into a clip of Chop Suey! 😆
Wait, Seth, you did BOTH those voices?
I mean, maybe the moon IS just a projection! If Seth can do BOTH those voices!? Anything is possible.
PS: It seems kind of like cheating to just mouth the words while you pretended to do Biden, though. I mean, that one OBVIOUSLY wasn't you. We're no fools!
We really are doomed to repeat history, even those of us that learned from it.
it's down to the (poor) state of education in the usa.
Thank you for calling out the former governor of NJ.
RNC: "We called you so many times Mr. Pillow. We want to work you but the guy who answered your phone kept saying, "Chris Wray FBI. How can I help you?"
You know who really has the power to stop Trump? Voters.
Yep 1st vote then comment
Otherwise hold the comment
for after your so called non-counted vote.........
Put that in your USA 1ST PIPE!....
Don't forget the electoral college.
Yes but they don’t believe the voters😢
This is the best late show on TV right now, by far.
@Rodolfo P. Teixeira The network would probably have his shows producers turn him into what everybody else has become. The same jokes about the same people. Over and over.
@FOHguy I agree. CBS should bring Craig Ferguson back!
Unfortunately, that's not saying much
Seth has quietly become one of America's top 10 or even top 5 impressionist comics! Who would have guessed when he was just doing the fake news on SNL?
Strong Tom Carvel energy with that Lindell impression 😁
Lindell, He's a punch line! 😁
Claire’s, Hardees, White Dallas Cowboy boots… hilarious set, A Closer Look, team, knocked this one out the park. I was lol the entire time!
I can't believe people still aren't calling him "Mike Pillow" I mean *come on*
I was sure Johnny Bananas would have won the RNC vote 🤣
damn i forgot about him!
Mitch McConnell (and others) were hoping the Democrats would get rid of Trump for them, but it looks like they overestimated the Democrats.
@Chris Lauderdale Sure, except for kicking Trump out of office, passing massive relief and infrastructure packages, codifying marriage equality, defending Medicare and Medicaid, hell, let's go back to passing civil rights...
Expecting the Democratic party to do anything at all is overestimating the Democratic party.
If someone makes a time loop and brings us back to 2016 I´m going to sue them!
I should know better than to take a drink of water during Seth's Lindell. As soon as he said "DA HARE!" I spit water everywhere
Yeah that's how I feel when I hear 2016, horrible, like I was dying inside, like the world just went to Hell in a hand basket, like Twilight Zone was all of our destinations. It was all those things and much much worse.
All of them are insane.
@Lawrence D’Oliveiro Not your island, Lawrence. A deserted atoll would be sufficient.
@Bw Bacon Hey, as somebody out in the middle of the Pacific, we’d appreciate it if you kept him to yourselves, thanks.
Fact. And we have to live with them in OUR world. I wish they'd just find an island somewhere in the middle of the Pacific.
I love your impression of Lindell.
It's funny that you make him sound like he's from Chicago but isn't he actually from Minnesoootaa?
Seth is still killing it on A Closer Look... bing bing bong bong 😹😹
Seth Myers makes me laugh. Him, Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel...basically all of the late night talk show hosts I guess. 😅
Mike Lindell's voice frightens the cat.
it also frightens the mirror !!
Perhaps, but the cockroaches come arunning.
No better segment on late night shows
*BEHIND EVERY ACCUSATION, THERE'S A CONFESSION. CLASSIC MAGA CIRCUS TACTICS*
@GamePapa What do you mean new motto they've been all about cruelty and hypocrisy since well before Nixon
We plead the fifth! 😧😧
"Bing bing bong boom" - Donald Trump
@Jef Olson They've had it for more than two years, why don't they show us what is on it?
Two impressions in the same sentence. Seth is the New Hader. Suck it Bill!
ahh how I've missed da Lindell impressions.
I can't believe it's been 6 years. Time flies.
