>> i like that. >> announcer: it's "the late show" with stephen colbert! , tonight, stephen welcomes jake tapper, michael peña and musical guest dua lipa, featuring jon batiste and "stay human." and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! ( cheers and applause ) ( theme song playing ) >> stephen: hey! oh! oh! hey! thank you. please v a seat! please, sit down, everybody!
thank you so much! welcome one and all to "the late show." i'm your host stephen colbert. how's everybody doing? ( cheers and applause ) you doing all right? you all seem pretty happy tonight. that neaps you tonight own stock in facebook because today was a rough day for everyone's favorite social network/democracy destabilizer. facebook's stock dropped 19%, losing $120 billion in value that's a lot of money. when asked about the drop, a spokesman for facebook, responded, "a million dollars isn't cool, you know what's cool? >> losing $120 billion dollars yeah, yeah, it's catchy. it all happened because of an earnings report that showed slower than expected growth in user numbers. are you happy, guys? this is what happens when we all respond "maybe," and no one shows up to janet's 40th birthday party.
( laughter ) you destroy the economy. >> jon: ruin the nation. >> stephen: is this true? it's apparently the largest one-day loss in market value by any company in u.s. stock market history. >> jon: wow! >> stephen: that includes -- that includes the great depression. "great depression" also describes how i feel after two minutes on facebook. ( laughter ) ( piano riff ) everyone else seems so happy. ( cheers and applause ) everyone else seems so thin. >> jon: you and me both. >> stephen: one industry insider fretted, "what's to say that, ten years from now, facebook isn't the next myspace?" ( audience reacts ) nothing. but wait -- people might start coming back to my myspace page? it's great. it autoplays smashmouth. and check out my review of "batman begins!" ( laughter ) i think it's going places. speaking of the internet destroying everything, donald trump. ( laughter )
the president is touring the midwest today, where he's attempting to reassure factory workers that his trade war isn't actually hurting them. (as trump) "don't believe what you see on tv, or hear on the news, or read on your pink slip." ( laughter ) first, he went to a factory in iowa, where he marveled at a miniature white house. (as trump) "oh, no, what have you done to my house? ( laughter ) mike? mike pence, are you still in there?" mike? you animals. ( piano riff ) later he gave a speech in illinois, at a plant called "hot strip mill." and impressively, he stuck around after he realized it wasn't a topless bar. ( laughter ) in the speech, the president fixated on the media's fixation on him. >> look at all of those cameras. all those cameras. every stop.
>> stephen: yes! yeah, yeah! obama was never photographed, that's why now he exists only in myth and legend. "gather round children and i will tell you the tale of a president who wasn't a humiliating moron." ( laughter ) yes. ( cheers and applause ) obama was photographed once. we have afired the only known photograph of barack obama! ( cheers and applause ) it's blurry. some people say it's a hoax, but i say obama was real. >> jon: it's him! >> stephen: and trump knows whose really to blame over the controversy of his meeting with putin in helsinki. it's the media. >> they're dying to see us make a little bit of a mistake.
>> stephen: you're right. we're dying to see you make a little bit of a mistake. because we're getting tired of the huge, democracy-threatening ones. just a little one one good! ( cheers and applause ) they're dyin', they're dyin'! he went on. >> they analyze every word. they say, "did he say that?" (laughter) could it have been? did he say something positive about russia? i think that he loves russia." >> stephen: oh, you've been watching the show. thank you. "thank you, thank you! aaahhh! " ( laughter ) but no trump speech would be complete without revisiting his favorite topic: that time a couple years back when he won an election. >> i did win that women's vote, didn't i?
remember that they said why would women vote for trump? well i don't know, but i got more than she did. >> stephen: no, you didn't. ( laughter ) no, you didn't. not even close. not even close! ( cheers and applause ) you, sir, only got 41% of women to hillary's 54%. you did win the majority among white women -- or as you call them,
united states. >> stephen: i think we just learned his 2020 slogan: "make america big, fat and sloppy again." meanwhile, the russia investigation grinds on. and we just learned that robert mueller has been examining trump's tweets. some of us do that every day, sir. and before you open up his feed, i recommend putting on goggles and freebasing some dramamine. ( laughter ) mueller's building a case for obstruction of justice, and trump's tweets could be a big part of that. especially his attacks on attorney general jeff sessions and james comey. and if mueller ever gets his interview with trump, he wants to question the president about the tweets. so do i. ( laughter ) i have so many questions. like, "what's with all the dot dots?" "how do you decide what to capitalize?" and "do you tweet after or instead of flushing?" here's something different: trump made an agreement with a
non-dictator. president of the european commission, jeanclaude juncker, seen here meeting trump for the first time. ( laughter ) "ump going to throw pennies in your house. hold still ." trump and juncker met at the white house yesterday and juncked an agreement out of their butts to de-escalate our trade war with the e.u. europe kind of agreed to buy more soybeans and maybe some liquified natural gas, and in return, trump agreed not to impose hefty tariffs on european cars. and he was thinking about it because associates say, "trump is enraged by all the bmws and mercedes-benzes he sees in the u.s." yeah, they're everywhere. i hear one even managed to sneak under the president's butt. ( laughter ) we have a great show for you tonight! jake tapper is here! ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing )

( cheers and applause ) give it up for band! ladies and gentlemen, my first guest tonight is the host of "the lead" and "state of the union" on cnn. please welcome the very busy jake tapper! ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing )
>> jake, good to see ya! all right! >> stephen: i'm looking forward to solving the problems of the universe here with you tonight. but first, congratulations observe your emmy noms. >> thank you! ( cheers and applause ) >> the news came out today, the nominations. you will appreciate it. this one of them is for most outstanding live interview, the interview i tid with kellyanne conway in february of 2017 which i know you took note of enand enjoyed. >> stephen: we used it a lot. it was fun. does that mean if you're nominated with kellyanne conway, does that mean you have to split it with her? >> when i told you back stage i would split it with her, i meant to say "wouldn't" split it with her. ( laughter )
( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: got it. let's talk about the trump white house today and what has happened in the last 24 hours with cnn and the trump white house. caitlin collins, white house correspondents for cnn, tell the people what happened. >> she is what's called the pool, when there's an event and they don't want the whole press corps in, they have one magazine, one news, one radio person, called the pool, and they report back to everyone else in the group. >> stephen: she's responsible for asking the questions everybody would want. >> yes. that morning, president trump had been tweeting nasty things as is his want, specifically about michael cohen. >> stephen: because the tape had come out. >> yes, the night before. and caitlin asked the question everybody would want to ask which is to provoke him to say something about michael cohen, did michael cohen betray you? she didn't answer. then there was another question about michael cohen. she asked about the summit with
putin, part 2, and has he not accepted the invitation or whatever. >> stephen: yeah. apparently offended, the trump administration offended by the impertinence of her questions, they told her later that she could not attendant another event in the rose garden where she was supposed to be the pool. >> stephen: even though she's just not there representing cnn, she's representing everyone? >> cbs, ncb news, abc, fox, everybody. >> stephen: and you can't come? >> you can't come because we didn't like your questions, they were rude. first, contemplate the notion that anybody associated with president trump thinking a reporter is rude. just the idea that there is a delicate decorum, that's not how we conduct ourselves in this white house -- ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: but when trump called somebody a live slime
ball, he keeps his pinky out. >> and a little dish after washing it in a little dish. >> stephen: what's the upshot? how long was she banned? >> just for that one event. but the good news is that the white house press corps including brett bare of fox news and others -- >> stephen: said he stand with you. >> and fox news put out a statement, i guess, you know, speaking for the part of the news division that doesn't spend their entire time trying to attack the rest of us, the part of the news division who is actually trying to do journalism, and said we stand for, you know, press access, we stand with caitlin collins, and other people did that, too. it was good to see. >> stephen: 45 minutes later, lou dobbs said cnn, who the hell do you think you are? it's about time you got called on the carpet. >> well, because that's the other half of fox news that says that sort of thing and, you kno-
>> stephen: did you attack him? >> did i attack him on twitter? no, i quoted something eh said when a conservative reporter asked tough questions of president obama in, like, 2012, and lou dobbs -- it might surprise you to find out, had a very different take on the situation. ( laughter ) and thought that obama was being rude by not answering the questions. >> stephen: wow. yeah. >> stephen: wow. ometimes i find some people in this environment, you will be interested to know, say the exact opposite thing about president trump than they did about president obama. >> stephen: mm-hmm. i'm serious. >> stephen: no, i'm look into that. >> it happens. >> stephen: i'm going to fact check that. because you're fake news. ( laughter ) >> you may want to look into it because you may get good bits.
>> stephen: no, i don't think people want to hear about politics on a comedy show. >> you also do carter page. >> stephen: i did. this is for the state of the union. >> sunday morning. they'd just released the f.i.s.a. warrant, the warrant f.b.i. brought to the special f.i.s.a. judge. >> stephen: there had been a freedom of information act request. >> yes? >> stephen: and the government released it. >> the government released it to show why they were conducting surveillance on carter page. it was surveillance application and three renewals, approved by four judges, all appointed by republicans, and the paperwork had been filed by thethp adminid obama administrationy the on f.i.s.a. warrant happe stephf you is you asking him about his ties to russia.
>> were you ever an agent of a foreign power? tid you ever advise the kremlin or work with the kremlin on anything? >> look, jake, i -- no, i've never been an agent of the foreign pol -- power by any stretch of the nation. -- imagination, to call me an advisor is over the top. >> except in the letter you wrote, over the past year i've had pleasure to serve as an advisor to the staff of the kremlin. >> informing, having conversations with people. this is really nothing. >> stephen: okay. you already knewifd himself as an advisor to the kremlin. why ask the question if you already know the answer? is that one of them gotcha questions people are always complaining about there? >> no, i wanted to know what his approach was when it came to this f.i.s.a. warrant. carter page has a long established history, living in
russia, working on energy issues in russia. it's not insane for anyone to think that maybe the russians would have tried to recruit him. i mean, that's kind of what the russians do. and here's this guy, and he's there, but carter page had this attitude that it was, like, why would anybody even think this, it's so crazy. >> stephen: and you pushed it a little bit further. jim? >> nd you have relationships with russian government officials, true? >> let's see what they're talking about. >> i'm just asking you a straight question. do you have relationships with russian government officials? i can tell you that i don't. >> stephen: ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: no one asked, jake, no one asked. i'm just saying, that sounds strangely defensive th iany relationships withitr, if that's what you're driving at. >> stephen: oh, really? well i have a letter here, but it's in chinese and i can't read
it. ( laughter ) we're going to take a little break. back with more jake tapper and we'll talk about putin! stick around!

( cheers and applause ) ( band playin ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: welcome back to "the late show." we're here with jake tapper. today jim jordan and some other guy -- >> mark meadows. >> stephen: of course, mark meadows, fascinating guy. the same mark meadows i've never heard of. mark meadows and -- >> from your neck of the woods. >> stephen: where? carolina,. >> stephen: which one? one of 'em. ( laughter ) >> stephen: where are you from? >> i'm from philadelphia. >> stephen: philadelphia? he's from philadelphia, pittsburgh, it's one of 'em! ( laughter ) he's from north carolina? >> it originally was one giant carolina, wasn't it? >> stephen: you shut up.
( laughter ) i can't even remember what i was going to ask you now, i'm so angry. >> about impeaching rosenstein. >> stephen: right, rosenstein who's the deputy attorney general and the guy who can, you know, fire mueller, and the guy who's kind of defending mueller right now and not giving congress documents they've asked for that would kind of give away the investigation, really because they would probably just give it to the trump administration, just speaking two guys. >> just us. >> stephen: cameras are off. ( laughter ) they introduce articles of impeachment tonight. >> yeah. >> stephen: is there any rationale for them to do this? >> not if you ask people like trey gowdy or paul ryan or republicans who are allies of president trump. >> stephen: then why would they do it? what's the point. >> well, some people say they're trying to force the hand of rosenstein to turn over more documents, but if i could say a larger point, not necessarily about meadows and jordan and this move, but there's obviously
a big move to undermine the mueller investigation, and we see it all the time with all -- >> stephen: the witch hunt. the witch hunt. >> stephen: a hoax. big hoax. >> stephen: all a hoax, yeah. there's obviously a -- you know, you get wrapped up in the politics of it all, but here's the bottom line, the united states was attacked by russia. now, it wasn't like pearl harbor, it was a cyber attack. it was a disinformation campaign but we were attacked, and there was this investigation to find out what happened. now, part of the investigation has to do with donald trump and whether anybody in his orbit cooperated but there was a larger investigation about what happened and how can we prevent frit happening again. a whole bunch of people in washington were trying to prevent the investigation from going forward. imagine how somebody tried to prevent the investigation in pearl harbor from going forward, you would say that person was not patriotic. >> stephen: i don't know how the mueller investigation turn out or how history will
prove about who knew what in the trump administration or anywhere in the united states or who collaborated, but how do you think history is going to judge the people who didn't want to find out? >> not very well. you know, it's obvious people are doing things to protect president trump and to protect the politics of this all, but this is beyond the politics of it all. it has to do with a sovereign nation being attacked by russia. we know this to be the case because the trump administration says the deputy attorney general, f.b.i., 12 russian military officials were indicted. the idea there is now this -- people do this and there's almost no blowback, the idea that there are people in washington trying to undermine it, trying to stop it, they don't want the truth to come out about this, about an attack on the united states, just blows my mind every time i think about it because we all get wrapped up and they're doing this, trying this, this group says this and filed this, at the end of the day, the american people were
attacked, and tha -- and that cn happen again, and the idea there are members of congress and others trying to stop an investigation from going forward so we can make sure it doesn't happen again. >> stephen: it's weird. it's unpatriotic. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: which is weird. here's the thing is that i've got this increasing feeling that, you know, you know how we said, people said we can't let trump's behavior be normalized or that facts don't matter be normalized. >> right. >> stephen: i'm not sure it's normalized, but i think weirdness in general has become normalized. >> i agree. >> stephen: as i was looking at the news tonight, we were rehearsing the show, i said what is this feeling i have, it's so weird that everything seems weird. things that should be normal like investigating, being
thwarted, that feels weird, and the weird nice reaches into all the news, the feeling of weirdness, and after a while i'm not sure what's real and my feelings of pervasive weirdness. it clouds your head and emotions with a sense of confusion and it's a very dark feeling. >> well, and how could it not be, especially after helsinki when we saw the president of the united states standing next to the guy who led the attack on us in 2016, siding with him over u.s. intelligence, over the american people who were the victims of this attack, then the next day pretending it all had to do with the fact he said would instead wouldn't, then even in that statement itself, oh, i take the word to have the intelligence community it was the russians, although it could have been somebody else, lot of people out there -- he said that, by the way, there are a lot of people out there, fact checked true, by the way.
>> stephen: billions. billions of people. >> stephen: we just have to figure out, we have to bring in for questioning russians, other people -- >> hillary. >> stephen: -- and then everyone else. >> we know it was the russians. it's the consensus of the intelligence community, even the house intelligence community. >> stephen: just today or yesterday the trump administration put out an official statement about not inviting putin, rescinding the offer, until the "witch hunt" is over. >> which is incredible because the guy who put out that statement, ambassador john bolton the national security advisor is one of the strongest anti-russia hawks in the country, and before he was the national security advisor had incredibly strong things to say about the fact that the russians attacked the united states. >> stephen: you know what that is, jake? that's weird. >> that's what i'm saying. >> stephen: it's hard to tell what's motivating people. >> the only thing i could guess is being deferential to
president trump, but it is odd, and it also puts people at odds to say this is the fact, this is the truth, this is actually what happened, and then you have people who don't want to accept it because it doesn't fit -- did you ever see the twilight episode with the little kid jimmy or billy who does horrible things -- >> stephen: wishes people into corn fields. >> wishes people into corn fields. and it's, like, yeah, everybody is acting to appease this one person. >> stephen: because they say scoocscaramucci whisked into thn field. ( laughter ) >> president trump at the very least is not going to be president from january 2025 on. he's going to go -- ( laughter ) i mean, a lot of these people are going to want to continue to have careers and lives, and ewe spend years -- when you spend
years undermining your reputation and dignity and the fact you don't care about the truth, i don't understand the end game for these people. how can you call an investigation into a russian attack on the united states a witch hunt and think people will take you seriously? it doesn't make sense. it's weird as you point out, it's odd. ( laughter ) >> stephen: how about a section of one of your shows, all right, it's time for "don't be weird." keep in mind, your answer can't be weird. ( laughter ) >> a friend of mine in the army came up with an idea for one. he is not a particularly liberal guy, but he wants a segment called d-a-f-u-q, where i could just give the news and he would go ( bleep ). ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: i like it.
of course, you've got to book, it's burning up the charts here, "the he fire club." >> yeah, we were on the best seller list for a while is that and tonight you're back. ( cheers and applause ) ( piano riff ) jake, good to see you again. "the lead" airs weekdays on cnn and "the hellfire club" is available now. jake tapper, everybody! we'll be right back with michael pena ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) there's a lot of volkswagen in every volkswagen. during volkswagen smile and drive days, you can lease a value packed 2018 tiguan s for just $189 a month or get a $1000 bonus.
to most ...most people.like... but on the inside, i feel chronic, widespread pain. fibromyalgia may be invisible to others, but myn 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 from 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. ask your doctor about lyrica. if you're elligble, you could pay as little as $25 a month. bundle and save big, but now it's time to find my dream abode. -right away, i could tell his priorities were a little unorthodox. -keep going. stop. a little bit down. stop. back up again. is this adequate sunlight for a komodo dragon? -yeah. -sure, i want that discount on car insurance
just for owning a home, but i'm not compromising. -you're taking a shower? -water pressure's crucial, scott! it's like they say -- location, location, koi pond. -they don't say that. it's like they say -- location, location, koi pond. when i walked through a snowthat's when i knewtte, i had to quit. for real this time. that's why i'm using nicorette. only nicorette gum has patented dual-coated technology for great taste plus intense craving relief. every great why needs a great how.

( audience reacts ) i literally was like -- mmm -- are we gonna land? it's almost like waiting for the elevator where every second is an hour. i'm, like, they're doing this on purpose now! >> stephen: did you perform in chicago? did you do acting there? >> no, no -- well, yeah, i did.

( laughter ) when did you go to l.a.? >> i went to l.a., like, a week and a half after i -- because i
