captioning sponsored by cbs >> president trump and michael bloomberg both plan to spend $10 million each for commercials during the big game. ♪ ♪ >> hello? >> wazzzup! >> wazzup! >> wazzup! >> uh. >> wazzzup! >> wazzup! >> uh. >> wazzzup! >> wazzup! >> so long, thanks. the call was a perfect call. >> announcer: it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight: world war free!
11:36 pm
larry david. and comedian pedro gonzalez. hun.batie std anay and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert!( ch) >> stephen: woo! hello! ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: how are you? hello, everybody. please... have a seat. ladies and gentlemen, welcome one and all to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. and i am so happy-- ( cheers and applause ) you know what? i can tell you're happy. i'm happy to be here tonight. i'm happy here is here tonight, because it was a little dicey the last 24 hours. because remember when trump
11:37 pm
killed the top iranian general, was , "wnihi, s erd waevrd ybod yiii?" well, i'm happy to announce, it's not worldarii w! it's not! ( cheers and applause ) isn't that nice? we had to-- >> jon: not world war iii. >> stephen: i don't know if you can tell, but we made most of this graphic when we were a little more nervous. ( laughter ) but here's the thing. it's not world war iii, and that's wonderful. but it's not like nothing happened. last night, iran fired 22 missiles at two military bases in iraq where american troops are stationed. the attack happened at 5:30, and then at 9:45 p.m. eastern time, our commander in chief tweeted at a worried nation, "all is well! missiles launched from iran at two military bases located in iraq. assessment of casualties and damages taking place now. so far, so good!
11:38 pm
we have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! i will be making a statement tomorrow morning." well, there it is. there it is. now you know. >> jon: that's what he's saying. right there. >> stephen: so important, so important. right there in black and white: reassurance from the commander in chief that there is absolutely nothing to-- ( sirens ) >> all is well! all is well! >> stephen: oh, no! oh, no, it's "the late show's all is well" alarm! jon, quick! get the happiness football! quick! all right, do you have your key, jon? do you have your key? >> jon: yes, yes! >> stephen: insert your key. insert your key, okay, and on my mark... ..3. onooarm stops )good j man! >> stephen: thank you, jon, good work. ( plap se) it's okay. we've achieved "defcon fine."
11:39 pm
( laughter ) now... you'll remember, after the soleimani strike, trump tweeted a low-res image of an american flag. and i guess to drive home the point that this was retaliation for what trump did, an iranian official tweeted this: ah-ha! they're fighting with clip art now... it's meme-- it's meme warfare. trump will have no choice but to hit back with, "ehrmagerd, we're at wehr!" ( laughter ) then... >> jon: ♪ ehrmagerd >> stephen: then-- nope! nope! nope! don't spoil me. ( cheers and applause ) then, as promised, this morning, trump emerged to address a worried world from what looked like a live nuclear reactor. ( lahter) >> jon: oh my goodness. >> stephen: the president started his statement with a weirdly abrupt greeting. >> as long as i am president of
11:40 pm
the united states, iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon. good morning. ( laughter ) >> stephen: that's strange. that's a very strange hello. "as long as i'm your dentist, your fillings will never be composed of mashed-up, other people's teeth. hello, i'm dr. ditworth." >> jon: oh, my gosh. >> stephen: trump was quick to claim victory. >> iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned, and a very good thing for the world. >> stephen: ( as trump ) "iran appears to be standing down. and thanks to an elaborate system of ropes, pulleys, and mirrors, i appear to be standing up. ( laughter ) pretty good. ( applause ) old reference. old reference.
11:41 pm
of course, it wouldn't be a trump speech without some miss- speeching. >> the civilized world must send a clear and unified message to the iranian regime: your campaign of terror, murder, mayhem will not be tahla-rided any longer. america's achieved energy independence. these historic accomplaments... shades our strategic priorities. >> stephen: rest easy, america. that is the man deciding who ligs and who dibes. ( laughter ) so, bottom line-- and it's a very nice bottom line-- we're not at war. we're so not at war, that there's big news about the british royal family. brace yourself, ladies and gentlemen: prince harry and meghan markle, the duke and duchess of sussex, have released a statement saying, "we intend to step back as 'senior' members of the royal family." that's right, harry and meghan are stepping down as senior members of the royal family.
11:42 pm
do you have any idea what that means? because i have no idea what that means. i have-- there are senior levels of royal? >> jon: they have levels to this, man. >> stephen: i thought it just went like, king, queen, prince and princess, jack of spades, boy wizard, dukes of hazzard, and then cartoon mouse that sews cinderella's dress. ( laughter ) according to the couple's statement, they're withdrawing from some of their official duties and now plan to balance their time between the united kingdom and north america. i say, "welcome, meghan and harry. on behalf of all former rebels against the british crown, you're going to love declaring independence. it comes with free speech and unlimited breadsticks." now-- ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: how 'bout that? >> stephen: what's not to like? >> jon: you've got to love it. >> stephen: decrowning
11:43 pm
themselves will bring some big life changes, because it will allow harry and meghan to work for money, something they currently can't do. this is great. she's an actress. this means meghan markle can go back to "suits!" and harry can sell them at men's wearhouse! ( laughter ) this came-- this came as-- i'd buy a suit from him, sure! this came as a shock to everyone. one bbc journalist reports, "no other member of the royal family was consulted before harry and meghan issued their personal statement tonight. the palace is understood to be 'disappointed'." oh, disappointed. translation: that means her majesty is queen eliza-pissed! with any luck, with any luck, harry and megan will be back across the pond here in time to vote in the 2020 election. and the democrats-- ( cheers and applause ) the democrats still have a ton of choices out there. but last-- hello. still don't know who that is.
11:44 pm
i still don't know who that is. last week, they went down to a ton minus one, because former housing and urban development secretary julian castro an was ending his campaign.hed so it unis time to say goodbye o secretary castro. okay. wait a second! is that his twin, joaquin castro? you guys can't "parent trap" us! get out of here! of course, as some folks leave the race, others jump right in. the most recent to join was former new york mayor and man with monogrammed seatbelt bowtie, in case his neck is in an accident, michael bloomberg.e heard of him, because bloomberg has spent a staggering $100 million on campaign ads in one month. he's hoping he can get elected just by being recognized from tv ads, which is why the frontrunner for his v.p. slot is the mucinex mucus blob.
11:45 pm
( laughter ) >> jon: mmm. mmm. >> stephen: he just announced his biggest ad buy of all. bloomberg's campaign has purchased a 60-second ad during next month's super bowl. we don't know what the commercial is going to look like yet. so far, all we know is that, "the biggest point is getting under trump's skin." good luck. ( cheers and applause ) sure. nice goal. ( applause ) a nice goal, but that stuff is tougher than the rind on a butternut squash. but just hours after bloomberg's campaign announced their ad buy, trump announced he was also dropping $10 million on a super bowl ad. well, i have something to say to politicians of all parties: get out of my super bowl commercials! i don't want to see politicians. ( cheers and applause ) that's not what the day is for. i don't want to see candidates
11:46 pm
for political office. i only want to see friendships between horses and puppies. ( cheers ) and inter-racial couples enjoying cereal. i want to cry because of a truck! the man loves that truck so much, and he's in the truck with another man who loves the truck. and the other man is his father. and they both... and they both love the truck so much. ( laughter ) ( laughter ) >> audience: awww! >> stephen: i love you, truck. >> audience member: it's okay! >> stephen: in other democrat news, last night, elizabeth warren held a big rally in brooklyn, and from the looks of it, she had a great time. check out her moves: ♪ just a little bit hey, baby ♪ just a little bit just a little bit ♪ respect just a little bit ♪ >> stephen: wow, she is really rocking a "every chaperone at the eighth grade dance" vibe. ( laughter ) ♪ ♪
11:47 pm
warren-- warren was also featured in "vogue" recently, where they asked about her signature look: black pants, black shirt, and solid-colored sweaters and blazers. or, as "vogue" for some reason put it, "warren's closets, kept in spectral order, look like mr. rogers's stretched across a color wheel." sounds like an odd metaphor, but-- spoiler alert-- it's actually the shocking ending of "a beautiful day in the neighborhood." ( laughter ) we also-- >> jon: whoa, now. >> stephen: it's king friday. that's king friday's dungeon. the idea is-- ♪ ♪ thank you! we also got the fourth-quarter fundraising numbers this week, and they're good for the democratic party, because in 2019, if you combine all of them, democratic candidates doubled trump's numbers. so clearly-- ( cheers and applause ) yeah, put them together! he just put them together. clearly, in 2020, trump stands
11:48 pm
no chance against democrazoid! ( laughter ) much of that fundraising came from mr. bernie sanders, who, in the fourth quarter alone, raised $34.5 million. ( cheers and applause ) yeah, that's some long ducats, man. and bernie has plans to use it. while other democratic candidates are stuck in d.c. for the senate's impeachment trial, bernie plans on attending rallies after hours by hopping on private jets. now, as someone who has flown on a private jet, let me assure you, those things will knock the socialism right out of you. ( laughter ) ( as bernie ) "equality for all! for too long, the billionaire class has... wait, we get to drive up straight to the plane, and i can keep my shoes on? the bottom 99% can redistribute 100% of their lips to my butt! i am balling out on the g6! shake it up, ladies, i got a lot of money! i'm raining honey roast peanuts back here." we've got a great show for you

11:55 pm
ads for bernie sanders' "one weird trick to lose belly fat." ( laughter and applause ) he looks good. he looks good. >> jon: mmm! cut. >> stephen: now, despite facebook doing jack-all about being a tool to help trump, and bosworth saying he wants trump to lose, bosworth doesn't want to do anything rash, such as anything, writing, "facebook has a moral duty not to tilt the scales against trump as he seeks re-election." adding, he "found himself wanting to use the social network's powerful platform against trump," but that when he feels tempted to do so, "i find myself thinking of 'the lord of the rings' at this moment. specifically, when frodo offers the ring to galadrial, and she imagines using the power righteously at first, but knows it will eventually corrupt her." okay. ( laughter ) look... i get what you're trying to say here. you don't want to use evil to defeat evil, but... galadri- "al"?
11:56 pm
come on, man! it's galadri- el, lady of the woods, lady of lorien, lothlórien, laurenindorinan, the valley of the singing gold, the bearer of nenya, one of the three elven rings of power. galadriel. galadri- "al" sounds like the elf that runs the radiator repair shop in rivendell: "no way i can get it to you before tuesday. sorry about that." now, before we go on, and by "we," i mean me. i want you to know, and remind you that you brought this fight to me, okay, duckworth? you're on my turf, defending the president of the united states, a man we can best describe as morgoth's left nard. oh, you don't know who morgoth is? perhaps you know him by his valar name, melkor? brother of manwe. no? then buckle up, mellon, because i'm about to school the shire out of you. facebook-- facebook-- ( cheers and applause ) ♪ ♪ ( cheers and applause ) no!s anow

12:32 am
nobody replies because my name is pedro. and the first thing that women post online is they won't even go on a date with you if you're below six feet. and it's like, have you ladies not read about the online dating killer that was in the news last week-- six foot, super jacked. it's so dangerous to go out with a guy like that. i started using that to my advantage and posting my height and weight-- 5'8", 145 pounds, and too weak to strangle anyone.

( laughter ) ( applause ) last month, i was at the miami airport. i was trying to catch a connection to go home, and i was late. so i got into one of the moving walkways and i starting tapping people saying, please, let me through." i tapped this big guy and he didn't like it and he turned around and said, "i'm not going to move." i said, "it's crowded." he said, "it's crowded because of people like you, go back to
12:34 am
your country." and i said, "that's what i'm trying to do, but you're blocking me." and he said, "i'll help you get up there." he picked up my suitcase, walked me to the gate and waved goodbye and that's why i love this country. because everyone is so nice! my name is pedro gonzalez. thank you so much! >> stephen: tour dates are posted on his website pedro gonzalez, everybody! we'll be right back.
