tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  November 2, 2016 11:35pm-12:38am PDT

11:35 pm
late show with stephen colbert next. >> tune in at 4:30 tomorrow morning. we'll have all the news you need to start your day. >> the late show was taped earlier so we don't know who won the world series. for that reason we have two messages. is there congratulations, cleveland. you played great ball. your city should be proud. this is the kind of triumphant win that makes us briefly forget your mascot. i also want to say congratulations to this goat. as you know in the owner cursed the chicago cubs because they kicked his goat out of gaiment. apparently the curse worked really well. goat, your power is undeniable, and we stand in awe of your black magic. all hail evil goat! wooo!
11:36 pm
way to go cubs. 108 years and the curse is broken. i'm so proud of you guys. tell you what, could i get some more mint jelly? this hoof's a little dry. >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, stephen welcomes michael strahan. nick kroll. and musical guest aaron lewis. featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! captioning sponsored by cbs ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: what's going on? hey, buddy. >> stephen!
11:37 pm
stephen! stephen! stephen! stephen. >> stephen: hi, chris. hi, paul. what's going on, matt? what's up, mark? ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: that's nice. welcome to "the late show," everybody. so nice to have you guys here. i'm your host stephen colbert. with just six days left before the election, this race-- this race is now tighter than your spinning teres are. tighten up. a little nervous. they're clenching a little tight right now. you could throw a kingston brick head up there and pop out something like for an engagement ring? ( laughter ) notice, a lot of democrats are blaming f.b.i. director james comey's bombshell announcement last week that huma abedin also uses e-mail. we didn't know. nobody knew. nobody knew. it was a shocker.
11:38 pm
now, it looks like the f.b.i. is trying to hurt hillary's campaign, which has a lot of people upset. mostly russia. that's their gig. and now, the f.b.i. just released documents from their 2001 probe into bill clinton's pardon of shady billionaire marc rich. yeah, all o of the documents. once again, bill clinton's in trouble after getting the full release. ( cheers and applause ) this. ( cheers and applause ) this is a clear breach of protocol. if the f.b.i. is going to release documents from 2001, you do it on throwback thursday. all right? ( laughter ) read your manual. read your manual. now, the f.b.i. says that the timing of this release wasn't intentional. asked for comment, f.b.i. director comey pointed to
11:39 pm
his hat. this race-- this race is now so close that the candidates are fighting for every single vote they can get, even the ones that have already been cast. >> this is a message for any democratic voter who have already cast their ballots for hillary clinton and who are having a bad case of buyer's remorse. wisconsin is one of several states where you can change your early ballot if you think you've made a mistake, so if you live here, or in michigan, or pennsylvania, or minnesota-- those four places-- you can change your vote to donald trump. we'll make america great again, okay? >> stephen: hey, hey ( bleep ). ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause )
11:40 pm
i don't know what you learned as a kid, but no fair changeys. no backsies. you vote, you're stuck with it. it's like a tattoo. and, yes, i regret my al gore tramp stamp. and to reach these voters, trump has come up with a new way to encourage people to donate to his campaign. >> i want to show you something very special. i am dedicating this wall right here in trump tower to a select group of donors and supporters from my campaign, and i want to add your name to this wall. contribute today, like the great americans here, and you'll get your name officially on the trump donor board. >> stephen: that's right. donald trump is building a wall and making his donors pay for it. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) the best part is it only costs
11:41 pm
$49 to be immortalized on donald trump's donor wall. or for just $6, you can buy a can of spray paint and be immortalized on trump tower. ( cheers and applause ) now, i've met a lot of trump supporters and i mean, when you meet them, they seem like fine folks who occasionally call for the jailing of their political opponents. but sometimes one bad apple makes all the apples seem racist. i may have seen-- it's not their fault. one guys did does it and it makes it seem like everybody with the guy at the rally and they were. you may have seen this clip i'm about to show of one rally-goer chanting at a group of journalists last week. a word of warning-- if your children are in the room, you might want to regret having brought them into this world ( laughter ) jim?
11:42 pm
>> stephen: it is absolutely horrifying to hear that kind of anti-semitic language. usually you read it in yahoo! comments. but a newspaper tracked the guy down. his name's george lindell, and it turns out we had it all wrong. he wasn't chanting "jew s a." to target jewish people, but "to show solidarity with mexicans" at the rally. you know, all the mexicans who go to trump rallies. here's the deal. lindell said that a group of mexicans at the rally-- again, that huge group of mexicans that goes to trump rallies-- had stopped chanting "u.s.a!" because, "it came out sounding like "joo s.a.," and "they felt the wouldn't fit in because of their accent." see? it was innocent. it was so innocent. he was just it's poor man was
11:43 pm
just trying to make the mexicans feel welcome so they would have fond memories of america after trump loaded them on to the cat catapults. i'm going to call this the worst excuse of all time. it's the worst possible-- i think it's even worse than the close second. this is the second-worst excuse exciews of all time-- "we weren't burning that cross on the lawn to scare you. we just wanted you to see our cool ghost costumes." ( cheers and applause ) and it's reasonable-- ( applause ) when asked about what he said at the end of his chant, lindell said he muttered, "the jews run the country anyway." a statement he said was "just horsing around." he was just horsing around.
11:44 pm
adding, "you know who's to blame? the jewish horses." so this election has now officially ruined everything-- horses, taco bowls, billy bush's career. and now, brace yourselves, it's ruined yogurt because chobani yogurt founder hamdi ulukaya is getting threats for helping immigrants. look, everyone knows that yogurt is supposed to help jamie lee curtis poop, and that's it. good luck, jamie. see, it turns out-- that's what the commercial says. see-- i believe it. see, it turns out that the owner ulukaya employs syrian refugees in his factories and started a foundation to help migrants.
11:45 pm
and now there are calls to boycott chobani, and the company has been taunted with racist epithets on twitter and facebook. it's no surprise that online trolls are in a race to the bottom. that's where all the fruit is. that's where all the fruit is. but you know what? we here at the "late show" like to be helpful. which is why we're introducing a new yogurt for people who want to boycott chobani. introducing xenogurt: if you love yogurt but hate the people who make it. instead of active cultures, xenogurt has one monolithic culture that never changes. ( laughter ) ( applause ) enjoy. ( cheers and applause ) mmm. mmm. mmm. that is just a prop. ( laughter ) i'm not sure what i just put in my mouth. thank you very much. ( laughter ) ( applause ) but it ain't yogurt. ( cheers and applause ) that's fun.
11:46 pm
that's fun. nice surprise. but as ugly as the campaign has been, this has been a historic year for women. any women here? ( cheers and applause ) there it is. we might have the first female president, women on the u.s. ( cheers and applause ) women on the u.s. olympic team won more medals than the men, and perhaps most excitingly, bono has been named the first man on "glamour's" "women of the year" list. you did it, ladies! congratulations. women have come so far, now you're men. i assume for bono to be on this list, every other woman has already gotten one of these. according to "glamour's" editor in chief, they included a man because "there are so many men who really are doing wonderful things for women these days." some men get it, and bono is one of those guys. it's like that old saying: in front of every great woman stands a guy who really gets it. ( laughter ) ( applause ) , of course,, of course,-- i
11:47 pm
mean to be fair, bono wasn't the only woman of the year. "glamour" also honored such actual women as the founders of black lives matter, gymnastics phenom simone biles, and head of the i.m.f. christine legarde. their prize: getting to meet bono. ( laughter ) ( applause ) we've got a great show for you tonight. michael strahan is here. so stick around, everybody. the band is going to play and i'm going to sit over there. when cold and flu hold you back try theraflu expressmax, now in new caplets. it's the only cold & flu caplet that has a maximum strength formula with a unique warming sensation you instantly feel. theraflu. for a powerful comeback. new expressmax caplets. an oven-baked digiorno? or waiting for delivery? did you have that beard when we ordered?

amazing because it's a story that a lot of people don't actually know about. it's not taught in the schools as part of, like, civil rights history. and it's monumentally important. and it's still important, obviously, with what's happening in the country right now. i mean, obviously, i'm voting for trump because i think he's the right man to lead america into the apocalypse. ( laughter ) but -- >> you know what got me about the case? if you wrote this movie and it didn't actually happen in reality and you called it "loving versus vig." you would say you can't call it "loving." the last name can't be loving. it's too perfect. >> what's amazing about the story, joel edgerton, and jeff nichols directed it, and it's a beautifully realized film. they're a very quiet, simple, country people who were not political people. they just wanted to be married. they couldn't understand why they shouldn't be able to be. >> stephen: and you played the a.c.l.u. lawyer. >> yes, i got the script.
12:20 am
jeff nickels who directed "mud "and "midnight special," he was interested in me for the role. and i was like, "what's the character?" and they said, "his name is bernie cohen." and i said, "all right, i get why i'm going to be in this movie." ( laughter ) speaking of that, mel gibson was amazing last night. i found it fascinating. >> stephen: yeah, it was interesting. >> and i was told the f.c.c. forced to you have me on the show to jew up the show a little bit. >> stephen: we had to. for the license. yeah, he's a sweet guy. and you played the lawyer and your-- you're too young to-- you're not even allowed to go to the supreme court because you're too young to actually try the case. >> right. so bernie cohen and his-- the gentleman who came on, phil herschof, they were so young and inexperienced they were faking it until they made it and bernie had to introduce phil because phil had only been out of law school for three years and these
12:21 am
two gentlemen brought the case from the a.c.l.u., and brought it to the supreme court and really changed the country. and richard and mildred really changed the country. >> stephen: we have a clip here of you talking to the couple about how you're going to have their back. jim. >> we wanted you to know that with all this travel back and forth from virginia, you have my number, and if anybody arrests you, you have them get in touch with us. we're not going to let you spend one minute longer in jail than this takes us to get down there and get you out, okay? >> okay. >> good luck to you. >> you did a good job today. >> we sure appreciate what you're all doing. >> okay, we'll see you soon. >> bye. >> thank you, gentlemen. >> you know they aren't going back to washington. and there's no guarantee we can get them out if they get arrested again. >> uh-huh.

( laughter ). >> stephen: i understand. and i don't-- i don't want to do funny things anymore. >> stephen: all right. do you want-- do you want to give a shot at it right now? >> i'd love to do-- i don't want to be funny in panel interviews. i want to have a dramatic interview with you. ( laughter ). >> stephen: all right, let's get our fingers underneath this. let's try this again. i want to ask you-- jimmy, can we get this a little more dramatic, please? is it possible. ♪ ♪ >> stephen: mr. kroll-- >> stevie.

it's like i've. tried. everything! my chronic constipation keeps coming back. i know that. tell me something i don't know. (vo) linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation, or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children under 6 and it should not be given to children 6 to 17. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. talk to your doctor about managing your symptoms proactively with linzess.
