tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  July 10, 2018 11:35pm-12:36am PDT

11:35 pm
calrissian is, except for me apparently. [ laughter ] captioning sponsored by cbs >> welcome back to the evening news. on the day president trump embarked on his trip to europe for the n.a.t.o. summit, london mayor sadik khan allowed an unflattering depiction of president trump and here with his opinion, nigel farag. >> as far as this blimp of trump, this has all come from sadiq khan's department. sadiq clearly does not like the u.s. president. i cannot imagine any city in the world would treat a visiting president with this amount of disrespect. the whole thing is a disgrace. >> i couldn't agree more. the american president landed in brussels today where he will meet with n.a.t.o. secretary -- hold on, what? could this be happening again?
11:36 pm
look at this. brussels has also allowed an offensive trump balloon. so disrespectful. a grotesque caricature, an outrage. look at this infantile pink-hued abomination. to treat an american president this way, twice! misshapen mouth form, bubbling about, disgusting depiction, bloated, obscene, absolutely -- what? it can't be. that's human? ( laughter ) he looks good. and now on to sports. >> announcer: it's "the late show" with stephen c cin disast. plus stephen welcomes will d now, live on tapeor and marcus
11:37 pm
city, it's teefn -- stephen colbert! ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: hey! >> jon: hey! >> stephen: hey, everybody! ( piano riff ) thank you so much! have a seat, everybody! welcome to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. ( cheers and applause ) i don't know about you, but i'm still recovering from watching "america's next top justice" last night. ( laughter ) did you watch the announcements? ever watch the announcement last night at 9:00? i had a little drinking game: i'd pour myself a drink every time my glass was empty. ( laughter ) i won! ( laughter ) the winner was federal appeals court judge and cover model for
11:38 pm
"generic dads monthly," brett kavanaugh. which means i have trump nomination bingo! as you can see, all the squares say, "white guy." ( laughter ) ( applause ) ( piano riff ) ( cheering ) i won, i think, and lost. that's great. it's not a hard game to play. ( laughter ) i don't know much about kavanaugh. but i'm skeptical because his name is brett. ( laughter ) that sounds less like a supreme court justice and more like a waiter at ruby tuesday's: "hi, i'm brett, i'll be your supreme court justice tonight. before you sit down, let me just clear away these rights away for you." ( laughter ) ( piano riff ) ( applause ) ( cheering ) of course, his full name is brett michael kavanaugh.
11:39 pm
so it's possible trump thought he was nominating singer and winner of "celebrity apprentice," bret michaels. ( applause ) at least we'll know his stance on the landmark case of "nothing v a good time." ( laughter ) plus, kavanaugh's 53, that's one year younger than i am! i don't want some kid making constitutional decisions. ( laughter ) i'm 54, and i still can't decide whether i'm team edward or team jacob. ( laughter ) kavanaugh grew up in washington and went to school at georgetown prep. the same school attended by trump's last nominee, neil gorsuch. which explains why kavanaugh was voted "second most likely to repeal roe v wade." ( laughter ) and that's one of the big questions here-- some fear that kavanaugh would overturn roe. while others hope kavanaugh would overtu. >> my mom was a
11:40 pm
the majority of my law clerks have been women. i have two spirited daughters. for the past seven years, i have coached my daughters' basketball teams. >> stephen: "i own three indigo girls' albums. the good ones. my favorite boat is named after a woman. i have my own pair of traveling pants. i eat jamie lee curtis' poop yogurt." ( laughter ) it makes you poop. it's not made of poop. okay. ( laughter ) of couruave pi tay different issu because in 2009, kavanauro that congress should pass a law "exempting a president-- while in office-- from criminal prosecution and investigation, including from questioning by criminal prosecutors or defense counsel." hmm! hmm! hmm! little late, but hmm! ( laughter ) so trump picked the guy who
11:41 pm
thinks presidents shouldn't be prosecuted! that's like steph curry picking the ref. and the ref has previously ruled, "warriors number one!" whoo! ( laughter ) now, "leave the president alone" might seem to be an odd position from a guy who worked for ken starr's investigation of clinton. but that was before kavanaugh worked for george w. bush. he explains, "my chief takeaway from working in the white house for five-and-a-half years... is that the job of president is far more difficult than any other civilian position in government." so he thinks the president should be above the law because his job is hard? ( laughter ) in that case, i say moms of three or more kids ought to be able to murder at will. ( cheers and applause ) just -- ( piano riff ) >> stephen: it's all in the new movie "the purge: mother's day."
11:42 pm
wake up,alig supporter of the second amendment. in 2011, he found that the constitution protects ownership of semiautomatic rifles because, "semi-automatic rifles, like semi-automatic handguns, have not traditionally been banned and are in common use by law-abiding citizens." just because something's in common use doesn't mean it's okay! for a while, lawn darts were in common use by law-abiding citizens, but then we banned them because kids came down with a bad case of spike head. ( laughter ) prior to becoming a judge, kavanaugh was involved in some of the biggest partisan fights of the last 20 years. for instance, he represented elian gonzalez, the boy who was taken by immigration back to cuba. it's day 6, remember when the republicans got upset when we tried to take one hispanic child away from his lawyers representing bush in bush v gore, and wrote much of
11:43 pm
the starr report. in fact, kavanaugh's been so ubiquitous in the republican legal establishment that he's been called, the "forrest gump" of republican politics. ( laughter ) yeah. which explains this recent interview he gave to politico. "my momma always said, 'life was like a box of chocolates. it begins at conception!'" ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) ( piano riff ) y'know, in tough times like this, it's nice to get good news every now and again. so i'm happy to report that "all twelve thai boys and their coach have been rescued from the cave they've been trapped in for more than two weeks." ( cheers and applause )
11:44 pm
that feels good. >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: it's a great story that gives everyone hope, and reminds us of the importance of permission slips for field trips to flooded caves. ( laughter ) everybody loves this story. are you listening, mr. president? freeing children makes people like you. ( cheers and applause ) meanwhile, america is still imprisoning thousands of migrant children that were taken from their parents. in a court ruling last month, the judge gave trump until today to reunite all of the kids aged five and under with their parents. but the good guys over at ice say that "of 102 such children now in custody, authorities have been able to identify and locate the parents of only 54." because when they separated the families, there was no
11:45 pm
reunification plan in place. so there are 48 toddlers still in cages. these kids would have a better chance of being reunited with their parents if they went spelunking with a thai soccer coach. ( laughter ) even the plan for the kids who are being returned to their parents is unsettling. according to reports, in an effort to avoid media and protestors, staff at child detention centers have been instructed that they are to put the children in vans and take them to locations that are as yet unknown to them. so we're at the point where the good news is that the government is throwing kids into unmarked vans. next, we'll be cheering on america's heroic sewer clowns. ( laughter ) but every detainee gets to go in front of a immigration court. including recently in phoenix, when a one year old had an appearance in front of an immigration judge, who said, "i'm embarrassed to ask it, i don't know who you would explain it to, unless you think that a one-year-old could learn immigration law."
11:46 pm
they better hope not. ( laughter ) "your honor, i may be a simple ( )try baby. but even i can tell that the rank smell of oppression is in the air-- possibly, because i made boom-boom in my didy. ( laughter ) ( applause ) ( cheers and applause ) your honor, permission to approach the bench for a fresh pair of pampers, perhaps a a handful of cheerios to work on my fine motor skills? where is justice? where is justice, i say? because it rolled under the couch and i lack object permanence." ( laughter ) ( piano riff ) we've got a great show for you tonight. ( cheers and applause ) will arnett is here. but when we return, breasts! stick around! ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing )

11:51 pm
( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: hey, everybody! ( cheers and applause ) welcome back to the show, everybody! ladies and gentlemen, i have important news for anyone who is now or has ever been a baby. ( laughter ) at a meeting of the world health assembly back in may, "u.s. delegates opposed an international resolution that supported breastfeeding." of course, this is the trump administration, so i assume they wanted to replace the word "breast" with something more tasteful, like, "funbags." ( laughter ) the proposal encouraged w.h.o. nations to "protect, promote,
11:52 pm
and support breastfeeding," but american officials sought to water down the resolution. important warning: never water down your breast milk resolution. it could lead to weight loss and lowered immunity. that's part joke, part real tip. ( laughter ) yeah ( applause ) we aim to educate. ( laughter ) the resolution was going to be introduced by ecuador, but they dropped their support after the u.s. threatened to, "unleash punishing trade measures and withdraw crucial military aid." over a breastfeeding resolution? that's like saying, "i'll have the coke. what's that? you only serve pepsi? okay, then i will burn down this fuddruckers." ( laughter ) i will. i will. mothers breastfeeding their babies should be a slam dunk. the resolution was just trying to "limit the misleading marketing of breast milk substitutes." and there's been a lot of those.
11:53 pm
just look at this similac baby formula ad promising to burn belly fat and increase libido. ( laughter ) the baby is jacked. i've got to try some similac. ( laughter ) but instead, "the united states delegation is embracing the interests of infant formula manufacturers." okay, look, i have no problem with formula. for some families, it's the best option. but if you don't want your product to sound sinister, maybe don't call it "the formula." what? what's that, darling? our sweet little baby is hungry? give her... "the formula." ( laughter ) then put her down for a nap in "the laboratory." ( laughter ) if she's still fussy afterwards we'll hear it on... "the
11:54 pm
monitor." ( laughter ) and calm her with more... "formula." ( laughter ) we'll be right back with will arnett. ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) who says summer gets all the fun? not us. because southwest has $69 one-way sale fares for travel throughout september and october. so you can fill the rest of your year with amazing trips. from football games to reunions, or just a break from the office. these $69 one-way sale fares are ready to make your september and october a whole lot better. book now at low fares. no hidden fees. that's transfarency.

( laughter ) >> stephen: did you get in an accident recently? >> i did. >> stephen: someone here was saying you were in an accident
12:01 am
and left the cab to save yourself. who was that? >> first of all, i want to clear that up, that was jason bateman. >> stephen: yes. we said why aren't stars like you in a town car, a hovercraft? >> get yourself a town car. >> stephen: exactly, or whatever. >> yeah, my former friend jason bateman, we were in a cab and he was in the front seat, and we hit another car, we actually hit an undercover cop, is a true story. >> stephen: wow. not on purpose. ( laughter ) and then the cab, like, filled with smoke. >> stephen: and you were every man for himself. he said you left him there to die. >> here's the truth -- if i wanted bateman dead, don't think i'm going to do it like that. >> stephen: all right. but the truth is the cab started to fill with smoke and i was in the back with a friend of
12:02 am
ours and jason's wife, and jason was in the passenger seat. it started to fill with smoke and i said to the driver, unlock the back doors. he was stunned. it was a minivan, and i slid the door. jason was sitting in his seat, and he wasn't doing anything, and it was filling with smoke. i opened his door, and i said, get out! and i saved his life. >> stephen: wow. ( cheers and applause ) you're a hero. ( piano riff ) >> thank you. >> stephen: wow. okay, well, how's your summer going so far? other than that. >> my summer is going really, really well, topnotch. >> stephen: what's your standard for a summer? because i have my own metric for what is a good summer. what is a good summer for you? >> well, what i like to do is, at the start of a summer, i buy myself one size less than i know fits me speedo. ( laughter ) then by the end of the summer, i'm trying to get down so all my
12:03 am
stuff isn't hanging over the sides and stuff, you know what i mean? >> stephen: oh. and if i have a real nice speedo going, then i've had a good summer. >> stephen: do you wear the speedo in public? >> yeah. i mean, to the pool and stuff, public pools. >> stephen: trying to bring the euro feel. >> yeah. >> stephen: i'm quite the opposite. if by the end of the summer my belly's not hanging out over the top of it, then i haven't had enough ice cream or sweet corn or tomato sandwiches or shrimp. >> yeah. >> stephen: you starve yourself in the summer in order to get -- >> yeah. >> stephen: no! this is bumper crop time! ( laughter ) >> to circle back. >> stephen: go ahead. tomato sandwiches is just tomatoes between bread. ( laughter ) sorry, is that what we're talking about? >> stephen: we're talking good tomatoes, not the grey things eyei'ma about isnd,
12:04 am
soh carolina fat, juicy, sexy beef steak tomatoes, tomatoes you just want to do something unspeakable with. thick slices of tomato, a little mayonnaise, a lot of salt and pepper on the pep praj farm thin bread. so mostly tomato. >> i don't want to spend too much time, but toasted? >> stephen: no! what? this is insanity! ( laughter ) >> stephen: you have kids, right? >> two. >> stephen: how old? almost eight and almost ten. >> stephen: so summertime is kid time. how do you control them in the summertime because during the year, it's go to school. >> school is the great equalizer. summertime is about trying to keep your kids off the screens. i think a lot of people would agree with me, the kids go nuts, right? ( applause ) >> stephen: i don't agree. you don't agree with me. >> stephen: no.
12:05 am

12:15 am
see him and he says, what did you have in your salad? feta cheese. what else? tomatoes. what else? salmon. how did you have the salmon? it's, like, the weirdest thing. he's obsessed with other people's food, it's like porn for him. every two hours, someone walks out with a little tin this big with pieces of meat in it or whatever he's allowed to eat in that two-hour period. he's like a machine. he's just jealous. so all he wants to know is what people eat. >> stephen: i'm going to eat a hot fudge sunday in front of him tomorrow. >> exactly! >> stephen: this is a semiserious question, you trained seriously in ballet. >> i did, yes. >> stephen: you performed for many years. did having the ballet chops help you with the karate chops? >> yeah, i had good karate chops there, didn't i? >> stephen: you did. i always wanted to do an action movie because i like a
12:16 am
physical challenge. as dancer you're learning choreography all the time. when i got to vancouver, i got to meet the stunt people and they taught nee corp choreograpd i loved it? did you kick ass before? >> in ( scream )"scream" but not to ts level. i threw a man over my shoulder. >> stephen: was that all you? that was all me. >> stephen: i've never done that. ( laughter ) ( applause ) you were in all the movies. ten years ago, you were on the cover of rolling stone, hosted "saturday night live," and you left. >> yes. >> stephen: you went to london. >> yes. >> stephen: why did you leave america? >> you know, i needed a minute. i needed a minute. >> stephen: that was ten years. >> it was a long minute. >> stephen: seriously, why did you bug out? >> um, you know, in my 20s, it all hit, you know, so fast and
12:17 am
so big. >> stephen: mm-hmm. that it was a little overwhelming. wonderful, obviously, and i'm very grateful for it, but, you know, it got to a level that the kinds of things i was being offered were not the things i wanted to do. i was constantly offered horror films or bad romantic comedies and that kind of thing and i wasn't interested in the scripts and i was feeling a bit -- well, just unhappy with the things that were coming to me, and i was feeling a little bored of the whole thing and i wanted a change, so i moved to london. >> stephen: could you be anonymous there? >> i was completely anonymous there. >> stephen: they don't have parties of five? england? ( laughter ) how could you go anywhere ath >> i was able to, it's just very different there. i literally did not get bothered once. people asked me what i did for a living and i said, i act. they said, oh, okay. it was lovely. ( laughter ) >> stephen: you were
12:18 am
successful at a very young age. >> yeah. >> stephen: that must be daunting on a certain level, because you have to play industry catch-up very quickly. did people teach you what you needed to know to be a star? >> i was a dancer and i was training from 8:30 in the morning till 6:30 in the evening, so it's a one-track mind, and i just didn't know american pop culture at all. suddenly, i became an actor and these things were happening to me. i had moments like "snl," i was going to do "snl," hadn't seen it that often, wasn't that familiar with it, was terrified. then i found out my musician was david bowie. my friend was, my god! i was, like, who's david bowie? that experiments was so wasted on me. i was clueless.
12:19 am
>> stephen: you didn't say that to david bowie, did you? >> no, didn't. i said, you're amazing. you're fantastic. my friend gave me some of his c.d.s before. ( laughter ) >> stephen: did you work with somebody where you were, like, i should know who you are but i don't? >> i was going to do a read through with francis ford copela, and i didn't know who he was either, and my agents couldn't believe that and were disheartened with me. at christmas, they september me abiotics of the 50 biggest most classic american films, which is one of the nicest presents i've received, because i suddenly watched the god phat around all the wonderful classics. >> stephen: have you finished them yet? >> yes. >> stephen: you have a son named caspian. >> i do. >> stephen: is it named after >> caspian sea.e ieme
12:20 am
