Watch Late Night Take A Closer Look At Donald Trump's Doubts About Russian Hacking

Recommended Posts


Now that the Vulture behind-the-scenes piece on A Closer Look mentioned that Seth hates "clapture" (people clapping instead of laughing), I'm attuned to him trying to talk over it. I noticed that a few times in this one he talked over them, but at one point I noticed him putting his hands up slightly as if to say "stop; calm down".

Thank you for mentioning the Vulture article as I hadn't seen it. I am so grateful for these segments.
"We're all f***ing tuned!" Indeed.

I think the problem with the "clapture" is, I struggle to laugh at most of Seth's jokes, because underlying even the awesomely pointed mocking of Trump is yet another reveal of how awful and suspect Trump's behavior is. So I find myself sitting there, shaking my head in frustration, because when you get right down to it, what Trump is doing is very much not funny and I can't believe we have four fucking years of this ahead of us.

So when Seth zings Trump in a brilliant way, I'd rather applaud than laugh (or applaud AND laugh).
