    I think the thing that bothered me most…..was the fact that…*sighs* there were black people supporting trump.
    That…or the fact that I'm not even 18…..and I KNOW MORE about the world than him…

    20 questions on all this Russia business

    AmericanThinker: R. Stephen Bowden 6 April 2017

    1. During her presidential campaign, did Hillary Clinton have top-secret
    clearance and access to Obama’s Presidential Daily Report (PDR) – a
    level of security not available to Donald Trump at the time – and if so,
    might intel on the Trump campaign have had political cash value for
    2. During the presidential campaign, did Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin
    also have access to Obama’s PDRs by virtue of their affiliation with
    Hillary Clinton – or as a result of having their security clearances
    extended – and if so, might this information have been of value to the
    Clinton campaign?
    3. If millions of global communications are swept up daily by our
    intelligence community, and then national security queries are made into
    the data in preparation for the daily PDR, what are the numerical odds
    that Donald Trump or people affiliated with him will continually pop up
    if he or they are not part of the search query?
    4. If our intelligence community can leave fingerprints on a hacking
    job to make it look as though another government did the hacking, what
    evidence can they provide to distinguish between the two?
    5. Beyond CrowdStrike’s claim about Russian attempts to interfere in
    last year’s presidential race, which they have since walked back, what
    independent evidence can our intelligence community offer to show
    successful Russian manipulation of the election – something with a
    degree of certainty at least as reliable as a weekend weather forecast
    or a mere harrumph, harrumph?
    6. Wasn’t it Barack and Hillary who offered a “reset button” to Russia
    back in 2009?
    7. Other than an alleged ax to grind with Hillary Clinton over her
    interference in Russian elections, what motive would Putin have to
    undermine Clinton instead of Trump, other than likeability,
    trustworthiness, and integrity, or the lack thereof?
    8. Does the Russian uranium deal and the millions in contributions to
    the Clinton Foundation from Russian financial sources make one think
    Trump would fit Russia’s interests better than Clinton?
    9. If Trump does fit Russia's interests better, despite the waste of
    money on Clinton, why is that a bad thing?
    10. Did the Obama administration get caught with its pants down –
    Hillary was a lock to win the election – and now has to cover up for
    treasonous, seditious, or otherwise illegal surveillance of American
    citizens for political purposes?
    11. Why is Barack Obama out of the country for such a long time,
    from the public eye and unavailable for reporters' questions – and where
    are Michelle and Valerie these days?
    12. Where did those three Awan brothers go, and why isn't anyone asking?
    13. Why would Assad use chemical weapons against fellow citizens – as it
    alleged he did this week – when such an act was absolutely unnecessary
    and only would cause more problems for the stability of his regime and
    his economy?
    14. Why would the Russian government want guilt by association with
    after they spent their own blood and treasure to oppose ISIS to
    stabilize Syria and the Assad government?
    15. Does the Assad used chemical weapons again meme have anything to do
    with trying to get our attention off the surveillance questions being
    asked – as in Hey!  Look!  A shiny object!?
    16. Given Susan Rice's admirable pedigree and undeniable penchant for
    water – with Benghazi, Bergdahl, and now the unmasking of Trump and
    associates – is it fair to ask if she's a closet masochist?
    17. Is Hillary and Bill, Inc. responsible for creating the Russia meme,
    the ongoing effort to destroy Donald Trump, the scapegoating of Susan
    Rice, the redirect to Syria,
    and the fact that I'm asking five questions instead of one?
    18. Why aren't investigative journalists drilling down on these issues?
    19. Does that last question make me a masochist?

    20. Should I ask Susan Rice?

    #Vault7 just dropped this morning. Turns out those "Russian hackers" were actually Americans.

  15. Mo Fo September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Now we know it was Obama all along lying and spying on Trump and wiretapping Trump Tower.Obama must serve prison time…

  16. Pavel K September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am


  17. Paul Miller September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Seth you said Trump is obsessed with his twitter look at yourself all your stupid little show talk's about is Trump sometimes I wonder if you actually secretly like Trump.

  18. Danielle Scribbins September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    I like the fact that Trump send tweets like that, it shows that he's not disconnected from the American heart beat. Make no mistake, those that don't like Trump are in the minority now, the most recent polls even though they lean toward the left show approval ratings on the way to 70 percent. Also, no proof Russia had anything to do with DNC hacks. In fact it's looking like it was people that worked for IT security for the Obama administration.

    OMG GUYS this is what would happen if Rahul Gandhi became the prime minister of India.
    for my Americans friends Rahul Gandhi is a younger and equally or more stupid Indian Version of Trump

  22. Texas Arcane September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    NBC has hit rock bottom with this loser. He wasn't funny on Saturday Night Live. I have never laughed at this idiot during his entire career. He just isn't funny, insightful or even interesting. Ratings reflect this.

    Still on about this Russian gibberish. They might as well accuse Trump of colluding with Bigfoot.

  23. Natalie Maire Smith September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    I am a HARD CORE Trump supporter, But I can still laugh at him like the joke at miss america that was hilarious. Seth is the only guy that keeps it light and dosen't take it to far.

  24. DONDIVA1969 September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Barron Trump hacked the DNC

  25. Bronx Bully September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    If Trump pardons Julian Assange, that will tell us a lot.

  26. Projected Reality September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Anyone else feel like Seth picks up the slack since Jon Stewart went off the air?

    Thank you, Seth and Late Night. Someone needed to.

  27. Olek_Gannon September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    just get rid of cnn trump it's only lies and anti-white propaganda.

  28. M Z September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    The neo-McCarthyism that's popped up in the U.S. worries me greatly. Why do Americans now seem to be so aggressive against Russia? What concerns me more is that this time it's coming from the Democrats who I'd imagine are a little more sane on foreign policy. This is very much the lead up to the many wars post-9/11, the mainstream media headlines are nothing short of sensationalist. Anything to excuse Hillary Clinton's shock loss and Obama's utter humiliation in Syria though I guess.

  29. Edi2003 September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    😂😂😂 I like the WIKILEAKS impression. Nice one Seth.

  30. box doodles September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Anyone who says "I'm moving to Canada" doesn't deserve to live in a country like the states. Take a look at Lincoln and JFK. If you don't like trump, take matters in your own hands. Arm yourselves and take the streets of D.C. Do what you will. Join us.

  31. Cil September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Seems the Trump supporters should have read the fine lines on the 'Make America Great Again' hats. Take a magnifying glass to it and you'll probably see Disclaimer: Make America Great does not apply to poor, or middle class people, and only the rich that are in my pocket.

  32. Raven Marine September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    i do hope trump knows that smart phone is also a computer

  33. Axios .king September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    how is this guy funny?

  34. Kyle Mercado September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    output sport entirely necessary wherever through cause house roll hi.

  35. J D Gorton September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Kellyanne sounds like she could use some education. She uses the same lines over and over. Trump is alienating the press so he can do what ever he wants in secret. If he calls them all fakes he doesn't have to talk to them.

  36. Shalu Nah September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    this is so wrong! 😫😫😫, for our leader to act this way.

  37. Thomas O'Brien September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Trump does not know the difference between "opinion" and "fake news", apparently. Ignorant!

  38. Greg Graffin September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Putin got that foolish by the balls, he jeopardize U.S. foreign policy on russian roulette with playful FSB golden squirt cuff around his neck while confronting deep dark covert british mechanic and likely to face subpoena in state espionage. Lindsey was right, he is learning politics from cartoon.

  39. What-If Machine September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    FAKE! The title of this clip is a lie! Everyone knows Trump has no ethics.

  40. Genevieve Ring September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Your video does not have cc for the deaf and heard of hearing. They would like to enjoy your show. Please add closed captioning. Thank you.

  41. Jose Fernandez September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    I will never watch this ridiculous tv show.

  42. chris pearson September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    So maybe the Russians really have influenced the election – or maybe it's a put-up job. But the damage is done. Americans don't trust their politicians anymore, feel talked down to and unrelated to. If the slide into tit for tat and hate-speech continues, America can look forward to decades of disunity – to say little of growing skepticism over foreign policy.

  43. Based Gringo September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Mr. Obama, does Mitt Romney still need to call the 80's to get his foreign policy back?

  44. 1111Pel September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Kellyanne Con-artist, when showed his phone, looks like she just pooped in her pants and knows the stench is coming in seconds.

  45. 1111Pel September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am

    Dave Putin…. to funny.

  46. Boitumelo Monare September 30, 2017 at 8:13 am
