"Late Night" host Seth Meyers took a "Closer Look" at Donald Trump's recent rebranding strategy, led by controversial lobbyist Paul Manafort.

Last week, however, a leaked audio recording of a meeting between Manafort and RNC officials revealed that Trump might be "playing a part," saying what the voters want to hear and cutting it with his trademark bombast.
