11:35 pm
the spacex falcon heavy has lifted off. captioning sponsored by cbs >> and now "the late show" exclusive, stephen colbert's interview of chuck todd's interview of president trump. ( laughter ) >> stephen: mr. president, thank you for sitting down with me. >> thank you. >> stephen: how are you feeling today. >> stone cold crazy. >> stephen: so par for the course. okay, sir, let's get right to it. are we going to war with iran? >> yes. >> stephen: really? no. >> stephen: what you just said we were, so are we going to war or not? >> oh, i don't know. >> stephen: okay, let me ask this, how are you making this decision? ( laughter ) okay, that makes sense. now, sir, you've claimed multiple times that you're a genius. let's test that idea. you were traveling 60 miles on a train. is it fast tore take a train that travels 50 miles per hour
11:36 pm
but makes two stops for ten minutes, or a train that travels 40 miles per hour and makes one stop for five minutes? >> i'd go on an airplane. >> stephen: no. let's make it simple. what's going on in this picture is this. >> she was not sleeping. >> stephen: close enough. mr. president, don't move. there's a squirrel on your shoulder! >> they have really taken advantage of us. >> stephen: i can see that. how do you plan to get rid of the squirrels? >> a nuclear weapon. >> stephen: that seems a little extreme. >> o whetheobliteration like yoe never seen before. >> stephen: let's forget the squirrels for a second. shoo! shoo! okay, sir. final question. when it comes to american democracy, what do you think your legacy will be? >> i was the one that ended it. >> announcer: it's "the late show" with stephen colbert. tonight's donald duck. plus stephen welcomes tom
11:37 pm
holland, democratic presidential candidate andrew yang, and musical guest jenny 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! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey! whoo! welcome! welcome one -- good to see you. welcome one and all. ( cheers and applause ) ladies, welcome to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. ( cheers and applause ) did you have a good weekend? ( cheers and applause ) i had a fantastic one. you know why? i did not read the news because
11:38 pm
it has been a little dark. ( laughter ) thursday night, we almost went to war with iran, and that was the story from the smile file. ( laughter ) i'll tell you all about that in part two of our already-too-long-running series: -- ( drum beat ) >> america at whaaa? ( laughter ) >> stephen: last wednesday night, iran shot down an unmanned u.s. drone, and nobody knew what president trump was going to do, including president trump because, according to officials, on thursday night, the president approved a strike on iran. as late as 7:00 p.m., planes were in the air and ships were in position, but no missiles had been fired when word came to stand down. so we were poised to start a war
11:39 pm
with iran, but donald trump did the right thi--(gags). ( laughter ) ( applause ) i'm sorry. i'm not used to saying that sort of thing. trump made the correct moral (gags). ( laughter ) point is, this is the first thing that trump has ever ordered that he didn't finish. ( laughter ) >> jon: wow. >> stephen: friday morning trump explained, "we were cocked and loaded to retaliate last night on three different sights (misspelled) when i asked, how many will die. '150 people, sir,' was the answer from a general.
11:40 pm
10 minutes before the strike, i stopped it." okay, i appreciate the sentiment. he doesn't want casualties, but isn't that something you should check before you've ordered the strike? (as trump) "okay, i have this gun, it's full of bullets, the hammer's pulled back, and-- what does this thing do when i pull the trigger? do fruit roll ups come out?" what happened? also, i just want to say "cocked and loaded"? the expression is "locked and loaded." ( cheers and applause ) (as trump) "we were cocked and loaded, we were at defcock 5, about to rain down a little cock and awe.
11:41 pm
it was just a tiny little mushroom cloud ." ( cheers and applause ) what? what? a tactical nuclear weapon. >> jon: i ain't touching that. >> stephen: trump explained himself further in an interview with host of "meet the press," chuck todd, seen here fist bumping his biggest fan. ( laughter ) trump said he gave iran a pass this time, but things might be different in the future. >> i'm not looking for war and, if there is, it'll be obliteration like you've never seen before. but i'm not looking to do that. >> stephen: he doesn't want to, but you might trigger a massive response. he's like bruce banner. (as trump) "you wouldn't like me when i'm angry. or when i'm happy or when i'm eating." ( laughter ) "not a pretty sight." trump was proud of himself. according to one source, he liked the command of approving the strike, but also the "decisiveness" of calling it off.
11:42 pm
it's simple. donald trump likes the decisiveness of calling off the terrible command donald trump just gave. ( laughter ) then today, trump announced new sanctions on iran, and at the signing ceremony, he explained one of the reasons he called off the strike. >> obviously, the people of iran are great people. you know, i know many of them. i lived in new york. i haven't been there very much the last two and a half years, but i know many iranians living in new york and they're fantastic people. i have many friends that are iranian. >> stephen: (as trump) "i didn't bomb them this time, but if i change my mind, you should all know that i'd be obliterating some fantastic people. really great. they will be missed." ( laughter ) iran's not the only thing trump changed his mind about this weekend. on sunday, ice planned to conduct a major operation in multiple cities to round up and deport undocumented families. even undocumented parents who
11:43 pm
have children who are u.s. citizens, so "it is possible parents could be deported while their children are left behind." ( audience booing ) how did that brainstorming meeting go? "all right, guys. come on, i need some new ideas. taking kids from their parents was a disaster. come on, toss out some new ideas!" uh... ( laughter ) well... ( laughter ) what if... we took... the parents... away from the children? ( laughter ) "i love it!" ( laughter ) thankfully, on saturday trump announced he'll delay the deportation operation. what changed his mind? apparently, his buddy nancy pelosi called him friday night, and today she revealed what she said to him:
11:44 pm
>> you're scaring the children of america. >> stephen: and the adults aren't doing too well either! ( cheers and applause ) ( cross talk between jon and steve ) trump explained on twitter: "at the request of democrats, i have delayed the illegal immigration removal process (deportation) for two weeks to see if the democrats and republicans can get together and work out a solution to the asylum and loophole problems at the southern border. if not, deportations start! so his shred of human decency has an expiration date. ( laughter ) it's like if scrooge had gotten up on christmas morning, and said: (as scrooge) "you there, boy, here's a shiny shilling. get me the prize turkey in the window. and make it quick, because in 12 hours i'm going to turn back into a complete jerk
11:45 pm
( laughter ) i'm going to kick tiny tim's crutch! oooh! ( cheers and applause ) but trump is hopeful that the border is an easy fix, as he said yesterday during his appearance on chuck the todd. >> you know what? if they change those, i say, i used to say 45 minutes. it's 15 minutes. if they changed asylum and if they changed loopholes, everything on the border would be perfect. >> stephen: yes, despite years of disagreement on our immigration laws, trump is promising to fix the border quicker than domino's can deliver a pizza. (as trump) "you know my guarantee: we're done in 15 minutes or i completely lose interest. what were we talking about again? hey, how did the bombing of iran go? what! why?" ( laughter ) here's something you do not see
11:46 pm
discussed on tv a lot this weekend, the president of the united states was accused of sexual assault -- again. ( audience reacts ) trump really is repeating his 2016 strategy. ( laughter ) in an article in "new york magazine" on friday, columnist e. jean carroll accuses trump of sexually assaulting her in a bergdorf goodman dressing room 23 years ago. these accusations are specific, credible, and terrible and make carroll the 22nd woman to step forward. 22 women! that should raise alarms. let me put it this way: if one person in your life accused you of pooping in their kitchen sink, i could be persuaded to believe it's a lie. but if over the course of your 73 years of life, 22 separate people came forward with detailed accounts of times you had pooped in their kitchen sinks, i'm starting to think you're a sink pooper. ( laughter )
11:47 pm
( applause ) there's no difference here. ( piano riff ) ( cheers and applause ) trump denied the charge and said the press needed to step lightly in saturday's chopper talk: >> people have to be careful because they're playing with very dangerous territory. when you look at what happened to justice kavanaugh and you look at what's happening to others, you can't do that for the sake of publicity. >> stephen: to which brett kavanaugh replied, "stop helping!" (as trump) "no brett, you and i are exactly the same. besides, i couldn't have been in that bergdorf goodman dressing room. i was at beach week, boofing with p.j. and squi." ( laughter ) we've got a great show for you tonight. tom holland is here. there you go. but when we return, puppies! stick around!

11:53 pm
me late two nights this week? >> jon: oh, yeah! let's do it! >> stephen: it's going to be great. >> jon: going to be great. >> stephen: i don't care how many sponsors i'm going to lose for saying this, but i like puppies. ( cheers and applause ) i'm sorry, i. do take me away. that's why i love doing my segment rescue dog rescue, where a celebrity joins me to tell flattering lies about puppies in order to convince viewers to adopt them. we've done this segment a few times now, and i'm proud to say we have a perfect 100% adoption rate. ( cheers and applause ) okay? 100%. take that, john oliver! you might have a fine program, but how many dogs have you left homeless? ( laughter ) and while it's usually pretty easy to get people excited about puppies, there's something else everyone is even more excited
11:54 pm
about right now: superhero movies. "avengers: endgame" is shattering box office records and next week is the release of "spider-man: far from home." ( cheers and applause ) very excited about it, too. in this one, spider-man goes on a school trip to europe and returns with a fake british accent.

( laughter ) now if only there was a celebrity willing to use their powers to get these dogs adopted.

( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: what? good to see you! ( cheers and applause ) tom holland! ( cheers and applause ) good to have you! >> thank you, guys. say no more, stephen, i will rescue these dogs. >> stephen: spider-man himself, tom holland! >> that's right, stephen. always remember, celebrities are the real super hereos. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: that's true tom. and that is the fake accent i was talking about. thank you. >> all right, sorry, sorry. excuse me. >> stephen: before we get started tonight, folks, a quick reminder: all the puppies we have here tonight are actual adoptable dogs from north shore animal league america. they're all fantastic. ( cheers and applause )
11:56 pm
but to make them even more appealing, we are about to tell flattering lies about them. >> i'm ready. >> stephen: i'll go first. ( audience reacts ) this is spider-pup. ( laughter ) there you go. like spider-man, spider-pup has a spidey sense, but instead of danger, he senses thunder, and instead of sensing it before the thunder happens, he senses it right after, and instead of responding bravely to the thunder, he gets super scared and needs to be cuddled. ( audience reacts ) >> jon: well done, well done! come here, matey! here we go! ( audience reacts ) ( laughter ) >> this is my friend j. bone-ah jamison, a veteran journalist and a real old-fashioned newshound. he can sniff out any story, as long as that story is located in another dog's butt. ( laughter )
11:57 pm
( applause ) >> stephen: oh, this little fellow here, this is black widdle. she's not just adorable, she's the world's deadliest assassin ( laughter ) just kidding. ( laughter ) >> hey, buddy! hello, hello! ( audience reacts ) i know, i know, it's killing me. this is peter barker. he may look like an ordinary dachshund, but he actually gained super powers after being biten by a genetically-modified schnauzer. that's right, he's a dog that has gained the abilities of a different kind of dog. that's why his super hero name is "dog-dog." ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) here you go, buddy! oh, no!
11:58 pm
>> stephen: this little soldier is captain americuddles. ( audience reacts ) cap here was part of a super-secret mission in the '40s to pee on hitler's leg. ( cheers and applause ) >> come here, mate! wow. ( laughter ) i think you can guess who this is. this is nick furry. he may be grizzled, but underneath it all, he has a caring soul. plus, right when you think your walk with nick is over, he surprises you with a fun post-walk scene where he tells you he's putting together a special team. that special team's mission? go on another walk. thank you, mate. >> stephen: that does it for "rescue dog rescue -- super hero edition."
