tv The Late Show With Stephen Colbert CBS November 18, 2016 11:35pm-12:38am EST
captioning sponsored by cbs >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, stephen welcomes william h. macy colin quinn and musical guest drive-by truckers. 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: wooo! hey!
>> stephen: hey! welcome to" late show." i'm stephen colbert. well, ladies and gentlemen, happy friday, we made it. safe. hope you all have fun plans for the weekend. any plans? >> jon: yes, indeed, i'm going to go home and nap. >> stephen: oh, yeah. that sounds good. my plans-- i'm going to spend the whole weekend in my closet banging on the back wall to try to find the way to narnia. if that fails, i know there's a bottle of bourbon in there. >> jon: probably so, you're right. >> stephen: narnia or bust. all week, all week, pundits and politicians have been asking themselves, "how did we get here?" ( laughter ) what is the moral g.p.s. that
led us to this cliff? highway did trump win? was this the revenge of the white, working class voters? was hillary clinton complacent on the campaign trail. did we anger the volcano god? i said we should have thrown taylor swift in there. would have missed her. would have missed her. it turns out tmay be none of the above. a lot of people are blaming all the facebook fake news that was pro-trump and anti-hillary. in fact, more fake news was shared on facebook than real news. so where did it come from? turns out a lot of it came from facebook fake news writer and mindfreak wannabe, paul horner, who says, "i think donald trump is in the white house because of me." okay! did you hear that, future time travellers? now you know who to hunt last year. ( cheers and applause )
aaah! although, i gotta say, pretty rude of him not to give at least partial credit to james comey. credit where credit is due. horner credits himself for such influential fake news items as, "the amish in america commit their vote to donald trump, mathematically guaranteeing him a presidential victory." "obama signs executive order banning the national anthem at all sporting events nationwide," and "gay wedding mobile vans cashing in on the legalization of gay marriage." because, you know, you think gay people you think one thing-- vans. >> jon: that's right. >> stephen: and horner knows who he can thank for his success, saying: "honestly, people are definitely dumber. they just keep passing stuff around. nobody fact-checks anything anymore. i mean, that's how trump got elected." oh, i don't know about everybody, but certain people
definitely don't seem smart. for instance, did you hear about the fake news writer who bragged about electing a reality show about electing trump to the country he has it to live in. of course, this isn't horner's first brush with fame. look at these headlines. "paul horner trampled by alpaca at beastiality club. nation rejoices." "dewey defeats truman and then feasts on the flesh of paul horner." but actually, we made those up, full discloser. and i kind of wish more news was fake right now. >> jon: oh, yeah. >> stephen: yeah. i don't like some of the real headlines i'm seeing, like this one, "more than 400 incidents of hateful harassment and intimidation since the election. for instance, indiana, where an episcopal church was vandalized with a swastika and the words 'heil trump'." i cannot believe this. i mean, it's 2016. can we please wait a little
longer before putting up the 2020 campaign signs ( cheers and applause ) it's even infecting fashion, because this week a neo-nazi blogger declared new balance the "official shoes of white people." utill now, they were the unofficial shoes of white people. the "fascist-nista" went on to write: "this will be fantastic. we will be able to recognize one another by our sportswear." finally, a way for nazis to recognize each other, because the swastika neck tattoo was a little subtle. this all started-- yay! neck tattoo. this all started after new balance supported the election of donald trump, statementing, "the obama administration turned a deaf ear to us and, frankly,
with president-elect trump, we feel things are going to move in the right direction." people got so mad at new balance for supporting trump like this, they filmed themselves setting their shoes on fire. it's the most moving act of shoe-related civil disobedience since dr. martin luther scholls' "letter from a birmingham foot locker." he made up it the mountaintop very fast. he ran up the thing. he was gelling. now, i know our nation is divided right now, but do we have to drag footwear into it? i'm a white male of a certain age who enjoys khakis. don't take my new balance from me. ( laughter ) what else am i going to wear when i'm waiting for my wife outside the talbot's? speaking of being married. people married? people married. ( applause ) guys who wear wedding rings, if you're shopping for one, sorry
to put you on the spot, guys, if you're buying a ring, be sure to read all the safety instructions, because this week doctors removed a wedding ring from a man's penis. first of all, if you can actually fit a wedding ring around your penis, congratulations on getting someone to marry you. ( laughter ) ( applause ) the man in this story apparently put the bling on the thing for "erotic reasons." wekkm like beyonce said, "if you like it, you better put a ring on it." >> jon: yay! >> stephen: thank you very much. it's true. ♪ ♪ as for the man's treatment options, doctors said, "no proper guidelines exist for the treatment of this condition, so the best method is the one
with a successful outcome." yes, hopefully he'll have a successful outcome. what he wanted was a happy ending. now, if there weren't enough troubling news already this week, it was just revealed that after 11 seasons and declining viewership "duck dynasty" is saying good-bye. ( cheers and applause ) yes. i'm sad, too. ( laughter ) turns out the guys wanted to spend more time exploring their true passion-- challenging squirrels to staring contests. no word yet on what the guys plan to do next, but my money's on phil robertson being chosen the next supreme court justice. ( applause ) now, united airlines just announced they're offering a cheaper ticket option called "basic economy," not to be confused with the name of the book donald trump is frantically reading right now. ( laughter ) ( applause ) yay! yay!
yay! yay, the future is a coin toss! in united's basic economy, passengers "won't be able to choose their seats, will be last to board the plane, and won't be able to carry on more than one personal item that will fit under the seat in front of them." also, you can't have legs, and all the babies on the plane will cry into tubes that go directly into your ears. ( laughter ) speaking of a living nightmare-- north korea has long been ruled by supreme leader and biewr supreme, kim jong-un. and recently, north korean officials lodged a formal request with china to prohibit names disparaging kim jong-un, specifically, the nickname kim fatty iii" that's just mean. why are you fat shaming this guy which you could be
human-rights shaming this guy? plus, if you're going to make fun of him-- kim's a girl's name. now, this is a serious problem for north korea, as the country's government officials are terrified about the insult and looking for somebody to blame. if he's looking to place blame on someone about his weight, may i suggest his mouth. i want to take a bold stance against cyberbullying, which is why i'm going to record an important public service announcement over in camera one. ( laughter ) hi, i'm stephen colbert. sticks and stones may break their bones, but words can really hurt them. hi, i'm still steve colbert. i'd like to take a moment to speak out against the epidemic of world-leader bullying. it may not seem like it, but as we speak, heads of state are being viciously mocked in every country in the world, except canada. that guy's just hot. y( cheers and applause )
you may have even bullied world leaders yourself with nicknames like "anthrax q. rabbitmouth," "secret agent horse fondler," and "lady paul mccartney." ( laughter ) no matter how accurate it is, it is cruel. so the next time you think of calling kim jong-un "kim fatty iii," or "the cabbage patch dictator," or "man who ate both kidd and play," just remember-- he has feelings, too. and a nuclear weapon. so shut the (bleep) up. we've got a great show for you tonight. william h. macy is here. but when we return, i'm going to sit america down and give it a little fatherly advice. stick around! hashtag stuffy nose. hashtag no sleep.
hashtag mouthbreather. just put on a breathe right strip. it instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than cold medicine alone. shut your mouth and say goodnight mouthbreathers. breathe right. it's time to get ready for the holidays so deck the halls dress to impress for the school concert then hurry home to cozy up for a family movie night. at kohl's, friends and family save a little more with an extra 20% off so you can give a little more this holiday. kohl's. the itsy bitsy spider went up the waterspout.

others calling me their dad. none of those people, by the way, my children. even katy perry posted this snapchat with me and captioned it "my dad." i'm not surprised to find out i'm a role model to katy because i once kissed a girl. and i liked it, too. ( laughter ) that's how i ended up with kids. well, i know how important quality time with a parent can be, so i think it's time to sit down and have a little talk. that's right, america. dad's calling a family meeting. get in here!

( laughter ) businessmen, okay. >> and, listen, it's dangerous to play with fireworks on the fourth of july. and it's just plain weird to do it on thanksgiving. >> don't you roll your eyes at me, mister! we're talking to you. no fireworks this year. you weren't the one who had to scrape the stuffing off your grandmother last year. >> that reminds me of something your grandmother used to say. >> stephen: this is great. >> when life gives you sweet potatoes, where's jimmy? she had started to lose her mind by that time, but we know what she meant-- stay positive. and find jimmy. >> stephen: obviously. >> we think she was a soldier she dated during the war. >> we don't know. yeah. listen up here. when your mother and i tell you to be home at 9 p.m. on sundays, we mean 9:00 p.m. >> that's right. >> stephen: okay? who else is going to explain "westworld" to us.
>> yeah. are they all robots? you better not tell me they're all going to wind up being robots. >> stephen: they're robots. >> don't tell me that. >> stephen: oh, i'm sorry. ( laughter ) oh, and by the way, you are in hot water, chief. the lab results came back report from vet, and it turns out the neighbor's cat did not shave itself. ( laughter ) >> and, also, i found this nudie magazine under your bed. i'm not angry. i'm just confused. you know you have a computer, right? ( laughter ) >> stephen: what's the deal? i don't understand. i don't understand what's happening. did you forget the wifi password. it's 123porn, okay? ( laughter ) so i don't know. i guess it's time we finally had the talk, okay, and you learned where babies come from. bill, you're the expert. >> well, in your case, your mother and i got pretty far into our second bottle of savignon blanc, and we were about a half
mile out on the pontoon boat, and let's just we kicked up some pretty big waves. ( laughter ) i'm saying we tested the buoyancy... your mom and i had sex. ( laughter ). >> stephen: listen, sport, if you take one thing away from this family meeting, always have self-respect. if your friend is saying mean things about you, he may thought really be your friend. he might really be your next president. ( cheers and applause ) >> and remember, no matter what, i'm proud of you. >> stephen: yeah, no matter what, he's proud of you. >> stephen: good talk, kiddieo. >> it was a great talk. >> stephen:we'll be right back with william h. macy! ♪ ♪ ( applause ) yea, it's nespresso.

'cuz they like, "you care. you notice. you remembered." they like, "oh my god, thank you, you've literally made my day." top this off with some of this delicious whipped cream. ♪ i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke.
while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto.

right. so let's start about the dutch. the dutch founded new york. how did they-- >> here's the beauty of the dutch for my show, because when i was doing the show i didn't find this out until i googled it. that's how i research, google. the word (bleep) is a dutch word. how perfect was that for the founding of new york city. ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: they brought that here? >> they brought the word (bleep). >> stephen: wow. >> that's a dutch word. >> stephen: thank you, thank you so much. >> i do the whole thing, like the germans came and how they were rude-polite. you know how people in new york, other places, "excuse me? where is the museum? excuse me, where's the subway?" people in new york accuse you of the information. "where do you get the ice cream? where do you get the coffee?" and when you tell them, "over there." "is it good?" you have to give them a review. and it just goes from there. i can't do the whole show. i could -- >> then they won't pay for it. >> that's right. >> stephen: this is aprapoe of
nothing. >> i like that expression. >> stephen: that's the way i do segues -- connected to nothing. i found out shortly before the show were you in "crocodile dundee 2?" >> yes, i was. >> stephen: i only ask-- i do not remember you from "crocodile dundee." >> i was a young upstart comedian, a little full of myself, as you'll know from this story. they gave me the script. i think i had one line in another movie. i read it -- >> it takes place here in new york. >> i read the script and go, "this is not new york." i rewrote the whole script, one line, just basically an extra, with me as the sidekick leading poll hogan around new york. i made myself the costar, and handed it in to them. ( laughter ) and i wasn't, like, 11. i was, like, 26 at the time. >> stephen: you don't have to-- look, you don't have to thank me. just, there you go. that was it, really? >> yes. and my name was kevin. i was like an irish guy.
kevin colin-- and i led him around and just handed it in. >> stephen: you ended up being in the movie. >> di. they didn't fire me as they should have. >> stephen: it might take a while but we're going to play every scene you're in, okay? jim. >> i'm in. i'm in. what are we doing? ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) >> imagine the mental illness. >> stephen: oh, my god. the huevos on you. >> just the audacity. if somebody did, that i'd say, "get him out of here. he's a psycho." >> stephen: good for you. good for you. >> yeah, and charles dutton, who was the costar, probably would have beat me-- he was an exboxer, too, he probably would have beat me senseless. i was basically kicking his part out and me as the costar. >> stephen: did you ever fight? >> no. >> stephen: you seem like a street tough-- >> i got beatings but i thought you meant professional fighting. >> stephen: no, i meant--
>> i'll show you a picture. i know this wasn't planned. but if you guys can get this one. this is me and someone photoshopped-- this is my body, but they photoshopped the tattoo on me. that's what i call a man's man, ladies. >> stephen: can you get a shot of that? i want to point something out. you did not know i was going to ask you about fighting. >> no i didn't. >> stephen: we did not plan this in any way. and it took you exactly one button to get a photo of you. >> ow! oh! >> stephen: don't get up. don't get up. that's on there all the time! that's literally-- you were staring at it before you walked on stage. >> it's my twitter page. it's my twitter -- >> you're in an overstuffed chair just stroking yourself gently looking at a photo of yourself before you came out here to take the pain away from your ankle. >> i swear to god, we didn't plan this. he's 100% right, folks. >> stephen: oh, my god. >> you have to have an ego to be in this business they say. >> stephen: exactly. >> that's my twitter pic.
>> stephen: if i follow you on twitter, that's the photo? >> it looks like i have no teeth in the phot but i do. >> stephen: people have said, "oh, trump ran the politically incorrect campaign and that's great." and people complain a lot about-- some comedians complain about political correctness on campus and stuff like that. do you have a problem with political correctness and have to pull your punches in some places when you're doing jokes? >> you can't. people nowadays, if they mention an ethnicity, anywhere, on campus or comedy. they do a preamble. "i'm going to say something right now. i want you understand this is not coming from a place of paternal itistic, patriarchal--" and then you can say whatever you want but you have to say that first. >> stephen: this is not coming from a place of hate, from a place of love. why did the chicken cross the road? >> yes, yes. >> stephen: yeah, yeah, to give the racist across the street a piece of his mind. that's why the chicken did that. >> and they applaud politely,
exactly. >> stephen: well, colin, listen, man, ice that anklele. >> yes, i'm going to. >> stephen: and send me that photo. good to see you. >> thanks a lot, steve. >> stephen: "the new york story" is now streaming on netflix. colin quinn, everybody. we'll be right back with a performance by drive-by truckers. ♪ ♪ ( applause )
