11:36 pm
f.b.i. and the president is a tool. seriously. it's less secret society and more society. you don't have to hide me. ebbed knows he's a tool. my name gary farbla. alive at 34 sandalwood lane in arlington, i work with the f.b.i. here are my credentials. i like mold planes, golf. >> you are the president of the smash mouth fan club ( voice distorted ) >> no comment. >> announcer: it's "the late show" with stephen colbert, tonight, trump makes doubles straight again. plus stephen welcomes gi get gwh paltrow, ben mckenzie, and musical guest thirty seconds to mars, featuring jon batiste and "stay human." now live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert!
11:37 pm
( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: hey, everybody! thank you very much! very kind ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the "late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. ( cheers and applause ) well, it's day two of trump's trip to davos conference in the swiss alps. it's loaded with celebrities. is there, cate blanchett is there. obviously, the swiss miss is there. that ricola guy. and now, donald trump. today, he sat down with british prime minister theresa may, which could have been awkward because they've had some sharp words for each other. but today, in davos, trump
11:38 pm
defended their relationship: >> the prime minister and myself have had a really great relationship, although some people don't necessarily believe that. but i can tell you, i have a tremendous respect for the prime minister and the job she's doing, and i think the feeling is mutual, from the standpoint of liking each other a lot. ( laughter ) >> stephen: are you allowed just to say how the other person feels about you without them saying a word? i'm not sure the feeling is mutual. jim, can we see her close up? yeah, she likes him. ( laughter ) that's what british people look like when they're happy. she's got that classic stiff upper face. ( laughter ) trump continued: >> and-- so, there was a little bit of a false rumor out there. just wanted to correct it,
11:39 pm
frankly, because we have great respect for everything you're doing, and we love your country because it's really great. >> stephen: "yeah, she's doing such a good job, they're already calling this place great britain." all right? ( laughter ) after make america great, this one is already there. it's a great job. ( laughter ) trump also met with israeli prime minister and guy at the seniors mixer eyeing your mom, benjamin netanyahu. it was their first meeting since trump announced he's moving the u.s. embassy to jerusalem, and trump defended the action. >> there were never any deals that came close because jerusalem -- you could never get past jerusalem. so when people said i set it back-- i didn't set it back. i helped them. because by taking it off the table, that was the toughest issue. >> stephen: yes, he helped the negotiations, by ending the negotiations. just like king solomon. "okay, both of you gals want this baby. tell you what. i'm going to cut it in half and give both sides to her.
11:40 pm
now, you can fight over the knife. ready, negotiate!" trump also threatened to withhold u.s. funds for the palestinians because they dissed mike pence. >> we give, you know, hundreds of millions of dollars. when they disrespected us a week ago by not allowing our great vice president to see them and we give them hundreds of millions of dollars in aid and support, tremendous numbers, numbers that nobody understands. ( laughter ) >> stephen: no, somebody understands them. i don't know if you understand them. ( laughter ) numbers are like letters that don't spell words. and the numbers you're taking away, feed children. but trump had one recurrent theme. listen carefully, and you might spot it. >> we took jerusalem off the table. so we don't talk about it anymore.
11:41 pm
they never got past jerusalem. we took it off the table. by taking it off the table -- that money is on the table and that money is not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace. the money is on the table. the money was never on the table. >> stephen: so the money's on the table, it's off the table. it's on the table, never on the table. that is confusing. he could have solved all of this by sticking to what he normally does: leave the money on the dresser! ( audience reacts ) ( piano riff ) ( applause ) >> jon: whoa! ha ha! >> stephen: allegedly. >> jon: oh, oh, allegedly... >> stephen: before trump left for davos, he surprised reporters waiting by john kelly's office with an unplanned press conference. there were no cameras there, but we did get to hear the president make a stunning promise about the russia investigation. >> are you going to talk to mueller?
11:42 pm
>> i'm looking forward to it, actually. >> would you do it under oath, mr. president? >> oh, i would do it under oath. yeah, absolutely. no, i would do it. >> stephen: incidentally, "doing it under oath" is my favorite stormy daniels movie. ( laughter ) >> jon: whoa, whoa! whoa! ( laughter ) ( piano riff ) ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: raise your right hand -- you don't want to know where i'm putting the left one. ( laughter ) the president also weighed in on the report since verified by other members of the staff. asked then-acting f.b.i. director andrew mccabe who he voted for. >> did you ask mccabe who he voted for? did you ask him that? >> i don't think so. no, i don't think i did. >> you did not? >> i don't know what's the big deal with that, because i would ask you. who did you vote for? >> stephen: ah, yes, the four stages of trump denial.
11:43 pm
i didn't do. i don't remember it. it wasn't a big deal. who did you vote for? ( laughter ) ( piano riff ) so that's all his legal problems cleared up. then he moved on to riffing some solutions to immigration. in that same presidential hallway address, for the first time ever, trump indicated that he is open to a path to citizenship for dreamers. finally, a way for immigrants to become citizens without having to marry donald trump. ( laughter ) ( audience reacts ) of course, allegedly. allegedly! we fact checked that one. ( cheers and applause ) of course, the big story in washington continues to be robert mueller's russia investigation, and a lot of republicans think it's compromised because of one f.b.i. agent who was on mueller's team: peter strzok. suspicious. who paid that z to be silent?
11:44 pm
( laughter ) last year, it came out that strzok and his girlfriend, another f.b.i. official named lisa page, had exchanged texts during the election that described donald trump as awful, an idiot, and an enormous douche. ( laughter ) okay. that -- that is wrong. he's only 239 pounds. ( laughter ) and everyone's buzzing about a text uncovered just this week. apparently, the day after the election, strzok's girlfriend texted, "are you even going to give out your calendars? seems kind of depressing. maybe it should just be the first meeting of the secret society." gotcha! ( laughter ) because when you're in a secret society, you always make sure to call it "the secret society." and you meet in a place with a big sign that says "secret society meeting," and have a secret handshake where we shake hands and whisper the word "secret." ( laughter ) now, abc news got a hold of this text and confirmed it was
11:45 pm
stand-alone, one-off joke. but what did they mean by "are you even going to give out your calendars? seems kind of depressing"? what calendars were they speaking of? was it some elaborate f.b.i. plan that unfolded over months? close. they were talking about "vladimir putin-themed calendars for those working on the early stage of the russia investigation." it was a gag gift. the gifting was the calendar, the gagging was when trump won. ( laughter ) but there's one person who took these texts very seriously, and that's wisconsin senator and the nation's highest ranking white walker, ron johnson. ( laughter ) johnson. a senator! he went on fox news to argue about the existence of this secret society with the fervor of a man who knows people are doing stuff without him. >> corruption at the highest levels of the f.b.i. now. secret society?
11:46 pm
we have an informant talking about a group that we are holding secret meetings off-site. there's so much smoke and suspicion-- >> let's stop there. a secret society? secret meetings off-site of the justice department? >> correct. >> stephen: really? correct? informant? those aren't the words i'd use when a sitting senator goes on tv to willfully misinterpret a joke text to panic the public that the f.b.i. is involved in a deep state conspiracy to overthrow the president. what's the word for someone who'd do that? oh, yeah. enormous douche. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) thank you for your service, agent strzok. we've got a great show for you tonight. gwyneth paltrow's here. and when we return, covetton partners with goop. stick around! ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) friends, colleagues,

( laughter ) i am so infused with gratitude that goop has invited covetton to partner with them for your health summit this weekend. >> yes, but we're not partnering. we prefer the term "conscious
11:55 pm
coupling." >> stephen: of course. oh, where are my manners? yoni egg? >> i'm good. >> stephen: suit yourself. i've had five today. little hard to chew, but man, do they work. >> you're not supposed to eat those. >> stephen: that explains the heimlichs. so, your goopship, tell me about the summit. >> it's going to be amazing. we're featuring ayurvedic treatments, magnetic acupressure, and facial fitness exercises. >> stephen: oh, my god, my face hasn't worked out in months. >> tell me about it. my face's ass is totally sagging. >> stephen: i wasn't going to say anything. hydrate? mm-mm-mm, so good. mine's bee pollen, kale, and two pumps of horsey sauce.

( laughter ) let's move on to the one thing our lifestyle brands are really about: branded merchandise. >> happiness. >> stephen: yes. happiness. ( laughter ) will there be any new goop products available at the summit? something new we haven't seen before? >> absolutely. i'm very excited about our new line of bath soaks-- salts, botanicals, and oils to nourish the body and the spirit, and they're only $35. >> stephen: that sounds great. but i can get you primo bath

12:06 am
way to share information and i didn't wants pate it becoming as real of a business as it is. >> stephen: what did you think it was going to be? >> i don't really know. it was just -- it was a way to be creative and i think i just loved taking that little step towards brave ri. like can i do this? i have no authority in this. but maybe i could and maybe i could some day be something, an it's great, because now we have 150 mostly women working at the company and we're doing really well.

( piano riff ) okay. all right. these come out how often? >> they're quarterly. >> stephen: quarterly. why so few? >> well, that's enough, i think. don't you think? this is the first one. this is the image on the first one right there. >> yeah. >> stephen: did it take a whole quarter just to wash that off? is that why? >> yeah. >> stephen: did this feel good? looks like it feels fantastic. >> it felt pretty good. >> stephen: did you do it yourself, or did a team come in to do that for you? >> i had some mud wranglers. >> stephen: wow. as one does. >> stephen: i didn't realize that was a career opportunity.
12:11 am
( laughter ) no one offered me that at school career day when i was in high school. now, this is the sex and love issue. >> yes. >> stephen: and you have kind of a wonderful relationship with your ex-husband, chris martin. >> i do. >> stephen: it's very open and you still state of very connected. as a matter of fact, this is your fianceé with your ex-husbad right there. it didn't end your relationship. you guys still like to see each other and do things, right? >> very much so. he's really like my brother. we're very familial. it's nice. it's great. >> stephen: yeah -- ( laughter ) >> no? >> stephen: well, it's just hard to describe someone you had children with as your brother. ( laughter ) >> which would explain the divorce. >> stephen: toucheé! i'm embarrassed. okay. do you think that could work for everyone? you did this exceptional thing
12:12 am
where you're consciously uncoupling. it's a phrase everybody loves, maybe we could do that. it became a part of the lexicon, are you guys more evolved than the rest of us? >> definitely not. >> stephen: really? no, but i think we just had -- you know, divorce was terrible. it was very painful. it was really hard and i think we genuinely wanted our kids to be as unscathed as possible and we thought if we could really maintain the family we would, so that was the goal and that's what we tried to do. >> stephen: you're a very nice person. he's nice, too. ( applause ) we had chris and the band on here. he gave me a book, a present. he gave me a book of roomy love poems. >> see? >> stephen: getting pretty serious.

i look like most people. but on the inside, i feel chronic, widespread pain. fibromyalgia may be invisible to others, but my pain is real. fibromyalgia is thought to be caused by overactive nerves. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. i'm glad my doctor prescribed lyrica. for some, lyrica delivers effective relief for moderate to even severe fibromyalgia pain. and improves function. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions, suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worse depression, unusual changes in mood or behavior, swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects: dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain, swelling of hands, legs and feet.

don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who've had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. with less pain, i can do more with my family. talk to your doctor today. see if lyrica can help.
