tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  August 17, 2017 11:35pm-12:37am PDT

11:35 pm
morning bright and early at 4:30 a.m. >> have a good night! >> good night. captioning sponsored by cbs >> so you can say what you want but that's the way it is. ( questions ) >> you said there was hatred and violence. >> i think there's blame, yes. i think there's blame on both sides. you rook at both sides, i think there's blame on both sides, and i have no doubt about it and you don't have any doubt about it either. >> wow, i did not expect that. i wonder if he understands what we do. >> announcer: it's "the late show" with stephen colbert! tonight, stephen welcomes john dickerson, michael rapaport and musical guest grizzly bear, featuring jon batiste and "stay human." and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert!
11:36 pm
( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: hey! thank you so much! have a seat, everybody! you're very kind. thank you so much. well, folks, welcome to the "late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. ( cheers and applause ) ( piano playing in background ) i'm excited about our first guest, john dickerson from "face the nation," will be here to talk about the news of the week. level-headed, fair. ( applause ) before we begin, i want to send out our thoughts to the people of barcelona, spain, who suffered a horrific attack today. a vehicle drove into a crowd,
11:37 pm
killing 12 people and injuring dozens more. this is a heart-breaking reminder that evil is real and the united states is not alone in fighting it. and this afternoon, president trump said the right thing, tweeting: "the united states condemns the terror attack in barcelona, spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help. be tough and strong, we love you!" thank you, sir. simple. dignified. presidential. ( applause ) that's what you want. that's what you hope for. that's all you can ask. he's right, we love you, spain. and i was sincerely happy to see that kind of moral leadership from our president... for about 45 minutes. ( laughter ) because then he tweeted: "study what general pershing of the united states did to terrorists when caught. there was no more radical
11:38 pm
islamic terror for 35 years! ( laughter ) who the -- huh? what? what's going on? well, there's a story about general pershing, a guy who fought muslim insurgents in the philippines about a century ago. and he likes telling this story about how pershing executed muslim prisoners of war. >> he took 50 bullets, and he dipped them in pigs' blood. and they shot 49 of those people, and the 50th person, he said, "you go back to your people, and you tell them what happened." and for 25 years, there wasn't a problem. >> stephen: that is a dark story. no wonder his kids turned out the way they did. ( laughter ) "and then the big bad wolf slaughtered two of the three little pigs, and told the third one, you go back to the sty and
11:39 pm
tell your little friends, no more brick houses. ( laughter ) huh-uh. no more. don't do it. >> don't do it. stay away. ( piano riff ) good night, eric." ( laughter ) any one of 'em. any one of 'em. trump's point is, we got to be tough, like we used to. but here's the problem, besides that that story is not true -- it's been called, "a poorly sourced yarn." poorly sourced yarn, also what ivanka uses for her clothing line. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: hey! >> stephen: you're very nice. one historian said, "this story is a fabrication and has long been discredited. i am amazed it is still making the rounds." if it wasn't for our president, a lot of things wouldn't be making the rounds.
11:40 pm
( laughter ) ( piano riff ) "okay, this is how general patton stopped the nazis at the battle of miami. okay? so, there at miami beach -- fabulous hotels -- he snuck into hitler's cabana, disguised as a babysitter. named brenda, i think. ( laughter ) they told him not to forget to put the turkey in the microwave. when they came home, the turkey was in the bassinet. eva braun freaks out. hitler shoots himself in the bunker." ( laughter ) true story. we check him out. is that a true story? we'll fact check that. ( laughter ) so this story is complete nonsense. however, one thing about general pershing that is true is this quote of his: "a competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while, on the contrary, an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops." did he say anything? ( cheers and applause ) ( piano riff )
11:41 pm
yay! yeah. huge. we always have a lot of general pershing fans in the audience. ( laughter ) and trump has had a lot of problems with history this week. mainly, how he'll be remembered by it, but also with defending the confederacy. and this morning, he doubled down, tweeting, "sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments. you, dot-dot-dot-dot-dot..., can't change history, but you can learn from it. robert e. lee, stonewall jackson-- who's next, washington, jefferson? so foolish! also, dot-dot-dot..., the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!" never to be replaced.
11:42 pm
>> jon: never. >> stephen: kind of like respect for the presidency. it's gone. ( cheers and applause ) ♪ oh ♪ oh ( piano riff ) >> stephen: but the president has a point -- a dumb point, but a point. we can't lose the beauty of things like this actual statue of confederate general and k.k.k. grand wizard nathan bedford forest! apparently, the klan was founded by a skirt-wearing, nutcrackers riding wet lizards. ( laughter ) and look where the general is pointing the gun. now we know why they lost. come on with me men! bang, bang, bang! bang, bang! who shot you? who shot you? damn you yankees! damn you! charge! ( cheers and applause )
11:43 pm
( laughter ) >> stephen: this show's like watching a ken burns documentary. ( laughter ) >> stephen: obviously trump is a fan of these statues because he's a civil war buff. he even has a plaque by a water hazard on one of his virginia golf courses with an inscription reading, "many great american soldiers, both of the north and south, died at this spot. the casualties were so great that the water would turn red and thus became known as 'the river of blood.'" by the way, the river of blood is also how steven bannon commutes to work. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) ( piano riff ) ( playing row, row, row your boat ) ( laughter )
11:44 pm
>> stephen: he gives the boatman the coins from his eyes first and then he takes him across. ( laughter ) but when asked about this famous battle, the executive director of the local historical preservation group said, "no. uh-uh. no way. nothing like that ever happened there." ( laughter ) not yet. ( laughter ) give trump some time. but it does prove that trump likes civil war monuments so much, he doesn't even care if they're real! "on this spot in 1860-whatever, abraham lincoln karate-chopped his way into fort sumter, where he was shot by ted cruz's dad. very sad. the point is, there was violence on many sides, many sides . ted cruz's dad was right, stand your ground, abe ."
11:45 pm
and comparing robert e. lee to george washington and thomas jefferson is just willful dummyness. no one is denying they had slaves. washington and jefferson have monuments because they fought the british, founded the country and wrote the declaration of independence. we have statues of robert e. lee because he chose to secede and fight for slavery. that's all you know about general lee. that and the fact that he had the "dukes of hazzard" car named after him. ( laughter ) or was he named after the car? ( laughter ) we may never know because we've erased our heritage. ( laughter ) >> jon: oh, wow, yeah. heritage all the way gone. ( cheers and applause ) ( piano riff ) >> stephen: so removing confederate statutes isn't about denying that slavery happened. it's about not celebrating the people who fought to keep it going. that's why we remember the "titanic," but we don't erect a
11:46 pm
monument to the iceberg. ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> jon: yeah! yeah! you don't need that! >> stephen: although, thanks to donald trump pulling out of the paris climate accords, soon all icebergs will need a memorial. ( laughter ) so to the detriment of his own agenda, trump is leaning in to his defense of white supremacists. why? well, according to one white house advisor, "trump would rather have people calling him racist than say he backed down the minute he was wrong." oh, then let me help. you're a racist. ( laughter ) i'm helping, jon! i'm trying to help! >> jon: give the man what he wants! tell him what he needs to know! >> stephen: support him! ( cheers and applause ) and you back down when you are wrong. ( laughter ) naturally, people are asking
11:47 pm
what happened to that new chief of staff that was going to keep him in line, four-star general and guy watching the interrogation from behind the mirror, john kelly. ( laughter ) some people think it's already over for kelly. according to one white house adviser, "the kelly era was a bright, shining interlude between failed attempts to right the trump presidency, and it has now come to a close after a short but glorious run." what? how can the john kelly era already be over? give me this, okay? the "time" magazine with his face on it is still on our office coffee table! ( laughter ) see? "trump's last best hope," dated august 21, 2017 -- ( applause ) ( piano riff ) that's four days from now! that's four days from now, and he's gone! ( cheers and applause ) ( piano riff ) kelly's time ended before it
11:48 pm
began. he's some sort of time traveler. ( laughter ) now he just needs to get back into his delorean and go back to a happier time for him, like when he was fighting in iraq. ( laughter ) so, let's take a fond look at the john kelly era. >> after weeks of turmoil, general kelly helps bring discipline to the west wing. >> anthony scaramucci is out. that white house is a real dump. >> trump hitting his lowest approval rating. >> taking to twitter to slam congress. >> the president begins his 17-day vacation. >> i think john kelly has made an impact. >> you can look at the number of tweets, they've dropped dramatically. >> any hopes that recent white house shakeups might tame president trump's use of twitter are false. >> president threatens north korea. >> fire and fury. donald trump's newest target
11:49 pm
is mitch mcconnell. >> playing vladimir putin. i want to thank him because we're trying to cut down on payroll. >> military solutions locked and loaded. >> many sides. i think the president needs to call it for what it is. evil. >> racism is evil. finally! there is blame on both sides. wow, that was something else. general kelly brought in as chief of staff to right the ship. how's that going so far? >> george washington was a slave owner. was george washington a slave owner? so will -- ♪ hello darkness my old friend ♪ ♪ ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: we've got a great show for you tonight. john dickerson is here! stick around! ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing )

( cheers and applause ) good for you. me, too, because my first guest tonight is cbs' chief washington correspondent and the anchor of "face the nation." please welcome john dickerson. ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: all right. hey! >> hi.
11:55 pm
>> stephen: nice to see you again. >> it's good to be back. >> stephen: what a sad and strange week this has been, hasn't it? >> yeah. >> stephen: truly unnerving at times. >> destabilizing. i mean, it was destabilizing in charlottesville saturday, then the more we learned on sunday, and now in reaction to the president's remarks, you've had more of that destabilization. >> stephen: let's talk about tuesday. the president's impromptu press conference in the lobby of trump tower was there to talk about infrastructure but it quickly fell into talking about equivocating between the resisters to the fascist elements and the people who were marching under the nazi flag. >> right. >> stephen: which was shocking for a lot of people. you've studied the president. you're a student of history, you've covered politics for a long time, have you ever seen anything like that before? >> no. normally, presidents come into these moments and lift the country up. they are the release valve for the pressure. they do a moral stacking. they take the disturbing events,
11:56 pm
explain to the country what's happened and give some comfort. in this case, the president was there and it's clear he wanted to fight out these issues. one is there were left-wing protesters, which there were. but that wasn't the key point. the key point is the protesters, the neo-nazi are antithetical to everything america stands for and he's the leader of america. so his fixation on the question of the left-wing protesters overshadowed that and that led to conflict and fights and people speaking out afterwards when his role really as president is to release that pressure, it created more. >> stephen: well, the reports are that he felt good after that press conference. he might be the only person other than david duke, other than his buddy david duke who actually felt good after that. ( laughter ) do you believe those reports? are those credible reports? >> well, i don't know. you don't ever want to try to get into somebody else's head, and i think there's a lot of that. but i think you can imagine
11:57 pm
because you know a couple of things, one, he doesn't like to think he's forced into doing something. he believes what he believes in and he doesn't want to be told to fulfill a certain role. >> stephen: so saturday when he emphasized many sides, many sides, and monday he came out and gave the rote statement which reports are it was prepared for him, that was arm twisting by the staff? >> i think he felt he did the work he needed to on saturday. he condemned the groups and he pointed out what he wanted to, the ad-lib of others were contributing to the violence. it was on his mind and he said that saturday. he called out the racists but the thrust of his remarks is he was passionate about making the point the left wing was still involved. >> stephen: more than saying the left wing was still involved, he also said there were good people protesting the night before, and when you look at those photos, it's people
11:58 pm
with torches, people with nazi insignia, and i think one of the things most shocking to everybody is that a president of the united states would say anyone who would march under a nazi banner, whatever your intersection once you get to the event and know it's organized by neo-nazi, why stay? >> good people don't march with nazis. they were also chanting jews will not -- ( applause ) >> stephen: by the way, good people do not march with nazis is the easiest clap line in the world. ( laughter ) why didn't trump use it? he loves people to applaud for him. >> this is one other extraordinary thing about saturday and tuesday, this is the easiest thing in the world for a president to do is to denounce -- >> stephen: it's a layup. there's not a sports metaphor to capture how easy this is ( laughter ) >> stephen: it's teeing off from inside the cup. ( applause )
11:59 pm
>> but this is important, obviously, because these ideas are directly in oppositiono the country he leads. secondly, he has difficulty. people associated him with those groups, david duke say they're marching into his name. he could have looked into the camera and said i not only denounce what you believe in but anyone who will vote for me because you think i believe in these things, i don't want your vote and you should go back to where you came from. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: didn't bob dole do that? >> yes, bob dole did it, george h.w. bush did it, ronald reagan did it. they said tease things in the hint of a chance somebody with these views would sign up. bob dole said here's the exit, i
12:00 am
don't want anything to do with you. they did this unprompted after an event like this when the nation turns to a president and seeks guidance particularly on this moral plane. as f.d.r. said, it's primarily a job of moral leadership. >> stephen: that's the job of the statesman president. that is the dignity that makes receiving a medal from this man or the honor of being with him is captured with that behavior, he has to manifest that. >> right, you have to know that this is part of your job and often what it requires is -- i mean, he clearly wanted to make an argument about his point of view. all the time as president, you have to subly mate yourself. >> stephen: that is not his strength. ( laughter ) >> l.b.j. said being president is like being a jackass in a hail storm, you have to sometimes just stand there and take it. it's like a marriage, if you want to argue this till the last
12:01 am
point, you may continue the argument and win, but there's a cost. sometimes you have to say i have this point of view and want to get it across but i'm not going to because i have a larger obligation and the larger obligation is what i have to pay attention to more than this point where i think i'm right. >> stephen: stick around, back with nor john dickerson. ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) andre is an air traffic controller. when it comes to planning the best routes, nobody does it better. he's also a championship-winning football coach. look at that formation. but when it comes to mortgages, he's less confident. fortunately for andre, there's rocket mortgage by quicken loans. it's simple, so he can understand the details and be sure he's getting the right mortgage. apply simply. understand fully.

12:06 am
>> we may have overstated the control thing in the first instance. this is a little bit of a problem in the way we cover white houses in particular, everything's changed because it's a new guy. the job of chief of staff is incredibly hard under any circumstance and under this president particularly hard, under this improvisational president ( laughter ) >> stephen: i like improvisational president. can i have a location i shouldn't go and i'll end the world. thank you. ( piano riff ) ( laughter ) >> presidents come in after winning the campaign and they've beaten the world, they're experts at getting elected, particularly with this president who has a gut connection with his supporters. and you come in and say, no, i know what i'm doing, and this president particularly faces et. it's a hard job under any circumstances and particularly hard to bring this white house back into line given everything
12:07 am
we've seen and seeing the fact people freelance. so he's got a tough job. >> stephen: speaking of tough jobs, i should have done this earlier, would you like a cocktail before going any further? >> yes is always -- >> stephen: i just poured myself one. >> i'm worried the questions are going to get that much harder. >> stephen: no. it's just this week, people are saying -- cheers. >> cheers. >> stephen: to america. to your health. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: people are saying that this week is something changed. many people are saying something changed in the presidency, maybe the public certainly the republican party's relationship with donald trump, like two roads diverged in a wood and he certainly took the oneless traveled by. >> right. >> stephen: he shouldn't have
12:08 am
taken. do you think this is an opportunity for a break point with the republican party and their president? >> thursday you saw bob corker, chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, he is not a hot head, and he said there are questions about the president's stability and he needed to do some deep introspection. this is not just about charlottesville. this is about his entire ability and capacity in the job. this is not somebody who makes outlandish comments as a matter of course. so he is raising the question that's always been raised about the president which is a question of temperament. the impulses have served him well in life and as a candidate, does he know how to fit them into apty which is a job that every president who goes through it is about constraining your impulses and knowing how to. and senator corker of tennessee rendered this verdict and that
12:09 am
feels very different in response to this moment we're in. that feels different. >> stephen: unstable or questioned his stability. >> questioned his stability. >> stephen: his stability, mental stability. he's questioning whether the man with the nuclear launch codes is necessarily stable. >> that's what senator corker said today, yeah. ( applause ) >> stephen: we've got to go here but before we go, as a student of history and somebody who's studied the presidents and as a southerner and someone from virginia and someone who went to u.v.a., what do you think of the comparison of washington and lee that the president is making? do you think so that is on any firm ground? >> well, they were both -- i mean, on the slavery, there is a comparison between the two, but
12:10 am
the difference is that general washington founded the country, he was and did everything as that first president because he knew everybody was watching him as he founded the country and laid the cornerstone for the country and what he did beforehand in fighting the revolution but also then the way he behaved in office. and, so, by contrast, general lee, who at west point they don't even call him general lee when he went there because he was a general of the confederacy, was in open rebellion of the thing washington built. for the purposes of keeping institution that's part of america's original sin. they're not comparable at all. that's the way i feel about that comparison. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: watch "face the nation" sundays on cbs. john dickerson, everybody! we'll be right back with michael rapaport. ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing )
