tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  March 6, 2018 11:35pm-12:37am EST

11:35 pm
>> after an historic meeting, south korea says north korean dictator kim jong-un says the north would be willing to give up its nuclear weapons if certain conditions are guaranteed. he also agreed to halt nuclear missile tests if the u.s. holds talks with his regime.
11:36 pm
>> the more i hung out with you, the more i felt like i was losing the possibility of maybe reconciling things with lauren. >> are you (bleep) kidding me? >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight kim jong unbelievable.
11:37 pm
plus, stephen welcomes oprah winfrey and justin hartley featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! captioning sponsored by cbs ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey! how are you? lovely! please sit down! thank you very much! welcome to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. it is good-- ( cheers and applause ) it's good to be alive and to stay that way because we just found out that north korea is willing to talk to the u.s. about giving up their nuclear weapons. and not the usual way they talk about giving up their nuclear
11:38 pm
weapons-- by dropping them on seattle. according to south korea, kim jong-un has agreed to sit down and engage in an open-ended dialogue to discuss the issue of denuclearization and to normalize u.s. relations with north korea. yes, normalize relations. i can't even say it, it's so unusual. ( laughter ) if you normalize, then kim jong-un and trump can sit down and talk about the things they have in common, like military parades and ridiculous haircuts. ( laughter ) when trump found out he tweeted: "possible progress being made in talks with north korea. for the first time in many years, a serious effort is being made by all parties concerned. the world is watching and waiting! may be false hope, but the u.s. is ready to go hard in either direction!" ( applause ) either way?
11:39 pm
wait, "go hard in either direction?" that's leadership. "who's with me? and where am i?" ( laughter ) besides, how do you go hard on peace? "we are going to peace you back to the stone age. (bleep). we're going to rain reconciliation down on you, obliterate you with friendship. you will never recover from the relentless bombardment of hugs! heed my words: your children will sleep at night!" ( laughter ) now, last night, i told you about the epic on-air meltdowns of former trump campaign aide and guy at the bachelor party nobody knows, sam nunberg. ( laughter ) yesterday, nunberg shocked washington with the announcement that he was not going to comply with a subpoena from robert mueller. and he did it everywhere: two shows on msnbc, three shows on
11:40 pm
cnn, "new york" magazine, the associated press, vox, yahoo! news, bloomberg news, and even new york one, a station only available if you live in new york and have spectrum cable. ( laughter ) then i assume he went on gas station tvs, a youtube makeup tutorial. and a return of "my little pony friendship is magic. >> talking to you, i smelled alcohol on your breath. >> i don't know what is more disturb ago him being drunk or me having to watch the news sober. he says-- he says-- ( applause ) he says he wasn't drinking, but drunk or sober, nun berg had one consistent message: >> i'm not cooperating. i can tell you, i'm not going in. it's ridiculous. i'm not cooperating. arrest me. you know what?
11:41 pm
mr. mueller, if he wants to send me to jail, he can send me to jail, and then i'll laugh. >> stephen: ha-ha. it's funny, because you're screwed? you see that, robert mueller, you'll never crack sam nunberg. who then told the a.p., "i'm going to end up cooperating with them. that was really quick. i think we have footage of nunberg's spine. of course,, of course,-- that's the spine on the river quai, i think. of course, the big story continues to be trump's trade war. on thursday, he slapped a 10% tariff on aluminum and 25% on steel. it could spark a trade war, especially after trump's trade advisor said there will be no exceptions made for allies. mr. president, please, we can't lose any more allies. at this point, it's israel, the u.k., and whatever country your wives are from.
11:42 pm
it's wife-sylvania, i think. and now, the e.u. has threatened to retaliate with tariffs on harley-davidson motorcycles, bourbon, and blue jeans. wow, that is a real blow to america's midlife-crisis industry. ( laughter ) all that's left is electric guitars and 25-year-old yoga teachers named dawn. ( laughter ) she's an old soul. ( laughter ) but a very young body. ( laughter ) but trump's not afraid of no trade war, mister. he tweeted on friday, "when a country-- usa-- is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country it does business with, trade wars are good, and easy to win." "yeah, wars are easy to win. the war starts, you get your dad to get you five draft deferments, the war ends. so easy!" now, i just-- ( applause ) i-- i, like--"
11:43 pm
now, all this trade war talk has gotten certain people worried, like speaker of the house and dracula's nice cousin, paul ryan. ( laughter ) very nice. very nice guy. yeah. help you move. help you move. something like that. pick you up from the airport. ( laughter ) he thinks trump needs a more nuanced approach. >> there is clearly abuse occurring. clearly, there is over capacity, dumping and shipping of steel and aluminum by some countries, particularly china. i think the smarter way to go is to make it more surgical. the proper approach is a more surgical approach, more surgical. we just want to make sure it is done in a more prudent way that's more surgical. >> stephen: they can't make it more surgical. you took away everyone's health care! it's not covered. ( cheers and applause ) i mean, they can do it. it's just not covered anymore. now, it turns out, surgical is not the adjective trump would use. >> we're going to straighten it
11:44 pm
out, and we'll do it in a very loving way. it will be a loving, loving way. >> stephen: you know what they say, "if you love something, set it free. and if it doesn't come back to you, it's because there was a 25% tariff at the border." ( laughter ) what's a loving tariff? i don't understand who a "loving tariff" is. that's the sort of thing you say if you don't know what a tariff is. or what love is. ( laughter ) meanwhile, in panama, the trump organization has been locked in a legal battle with the majority owner of the panama trump hotel and tower. and yesterday, the majority owner of the hotel declared victory in his fight to oust the american president's family business. the majority won and trump lost! panama is a beautiful, bizarro-america where hillary is president, tide pods are for laundry, and "get out" won best picture! the ( cheers and applause ) back in-- or "lady bird." back in 2016, the hotel's developers sold a majority of
11:45 pm
the property to a new owner named mr. fintiklis. fintiklis-- also the sex move from that "shape of water" guy. the fintiklis. i haven't seen it. i haven't seen it. i don't know. i hear it's very good. i hear it's very good. the fabulous mr. fintiklis quickly determined that trump was mismanaging the hotel, saying "profits had plummeted and the property's condition had left it virtually empty." it's got trump's name on it, and it's worthless and vacant? so like don junior. ( applause ) now-- now-- a lot of don jr.'s friends came here tonight, i see. welcome! now, the trump organization insists the hotel is thriving, but they have declined to disclose the hotel's occupancy rates. but they swear it's full. just ask the head bellhop, sean.
11:46 pm
so trump's-- he's a good guy. so trump's brand is bad for business, and his name is all over this hotel. just at the bar alone, there's the trump mojito, the trump chardonnay, the tropical trump, and the trump breeze. come on! how do you not have a pina-colluda? ( laughter ) ( applause ) so-- ( cheers and applause ) it's delicious. i could go that. a virgin, a virgin pina-colluda. so the majority owners voted to remove the trump organization as managers of the hotel. but when fintiklis showed up to try to fire trump's staffers, trump employees refused to leave, and witnesses say the trump organization had posted guards at the building's control room to bar anyone from entering. did trump just launch a coup on his own hotel? how do you advertise that on trip advisor? "pet friendly, complimentary breakfast, currently under violent regime change, free wifi!"
11:47 pm
( applause ) well-- well-- four stars. four stars. well, yesterday, a panamanian court weighed in, ruling that the trump organization had to go. so, mr. fintiklis got to experience one of the most satisfying things i've ever seen: trump's name being removed from the building with a crowbar. oh, yeah! there's the "t." take it off. now the "r" now the "u." do the "u." use your hands, yeah. just get in there. yank it. twist it, twist it a little bit. yeah! now yank it! just get it-- just get it! oh! i am spent.
11:48 pm

11:55 pm
you had. >> thank you for doing that. thank you for doing that. >> stephen: it has been a year-- more than a year, since you have been on this show. in january of 2017 you said 2017 was going to be your year of... >> adventure. >> stephen: exactly. your year of adventure. >> i actually did do that. so sometimes you will set a goal, and then it doesn't happen, and you're like, "okay, that's okay." but this year, it actually happened. because for me the biggest adventure was new zealand. and i hear you've been there. >> stephen: oh, i love it. >> isn't it? isn't it. >> stephen: new zealand is amazing. >> i want everyone in the world to go. i wish i could say, "you go to new zealand. you go to zealand." i wish i could. >> stephen: i'm going to get to the movie in just a moment, but i want to talk about "60 minutes" here, first. >> what about it? >> stephen: you did something-- you've done two roundtables, right, so far. >> uh-huh. >> stephen: with pro and anti-trump voters in michigan. that sounds like the sort of thing you'd want to bring a helmut to, because people are so
11:56 pm
divided -- or a cup. people are so divided these days. >> the truth of the matter is that the first time it was a little awkward, and i could tell that there were people who actually didn't want me sitting next to them. so you know what i do when you don't want me sitting next to you? i lean in. i lean over, and then i lean in-- ( applause ). >> stephen: make them nervous or something? >> not nervous. i think-- they actually told me later that they thought that i would bring my own political stuff there and that they weren't that happy to see me. that's what they said to me afterwards. but now, i went back, like, six months later, and that group was still-- this is what happened. i wanted to go to "60 minutes" because i thought let's see what we can do to bridge the divide in the country. you can get both sides talking to each other? and that group of 14 people stayed in contact, even though they didn't know we were coming back. because we didn't know we were coming back. and they all started this whole facebook page called "america's hope," and they started they
11:57 pm
still-- not one person changed their mind, but they learned to listen to each other and disagree without being so disagreeable. that's what happened. >> stephen: wow, okay. so-- ( applause ). >> which means it can happen. >> stephen: that's hopeful. that's hopeful. as long as people keep talking, you can at least negotiate where the country is going. >> yeah. >> stephen: if you don't talk-- >> it means you can hear another person's point of view, at least. >> stephen: so how is that different? like, being on "60 minutes" and doing these kind of interviews, obviously, you had the talk show of talk shows for 20 years or something like that. >> 25! >> stephen: i apologize. ( laughter ) i apologize. >> that extra five years! ( applause ) wait until you're on 25. that extra five you're going to be counting it. you're going to be counting it, steve glen how is this different? you certainly had all that experience talking to people. >> what's different is everybody watched the "oprah show" they generally knew where my opinions were. and i tried really hard to not
11:58 pm
to be biased either way, just to be-- i literally say, "i'm going to go in. my only intention is to listen and to keep an open mind and to let other people be heard." rather than my own show i was a participant in that show, and i had my opinions and people knew where my values were. >> stephen: you're a good talker. >> i'm a good talker. so i try to be a better listener when i do "60 minutes." >> stephen: so you're not doing a talk show. you're doing a listening show. >> i do a listening show, kind of. >> stephen: you did have one very big fan who watched you. >> oh, yeah. >> stephen: on the second night that you did it. this is a young man named donald who lives in washington. yeah. ( laughter ) >> stephen: now, i would say, if there is one thing i associate with you, it's
11:59 pm
insecure. ( laughter ) you just don't seem like you're coming from a place of strength. >> i didn't understand that. i didn't understand that. but here's the deal. i take all criticism-- particularly over the years. i remember a long time ago a critic had said when i first started television, "she ate the furniture. she ate the question, shat she e the"-- i actually listened to that and became a better listener. when i heard the president had tweeted that i went back and looked at the tape to see what is he actually talking about? was i biased? were we not fair? and i didn't get it. i really-- but i did examine it. i called up the "60 minutes" producers. i said, "hey, let's-- is there any validity to this at all?" and we all looked tat and said no. ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: year, i would agree. i would agree. so here's-- here's another-- here's another adventure that you had this year. >> yeah. >> stephen: you didn't just go
12:00 am
to new zealand. you went to new zealand, and you became a blond superhero. >> i went to new zealand and i got a doll. >> stephen: you got a doll. >> did you read the book. >> stephen: yes, i read it. i had it read to me in third grade by mrs. kelley thank you, mrs. kelly. >> nobody forgets their third-grade teacher. >> stephen: when i was 10, a few years later, i read it. >> really. >> stephen: yeah. amazing. i can't wait to see the movie because i remember mrs. which and what's it and who. and then dad disappears. >> that's the whole point. >> stephen: and it, i was so frightened of it. >> did you know what it was? >> stephen: no, i didn't know what it was. >> it was the darkness! it is the darkness! >> stephen: you just went darth vader on me right there. what is the darkness again? the darkness is the darkness that's spreading so fast these days, the only thing faster than the light is the darkness. and the darkness is inside you. it's when evil takes over
12:01 am
inside. >> stephen: how do you keep that from happening because i don't want to be evil? >> you have to stay in the light. >> stephen: you have to stay in the light. >> and that's what mrs. which is, and mandy kaling, and reese witherspoon-- who i hear is going to be on this week. these angel, millennial women who help the girl, meg, played by the golden storm reid, played by her, who is searching for her father. and we help her find her father. "we shall find your father." >> stephen: i know. i know. it's an eternal struggle. >> come with me. yes, yes. >> stephen: did you read the books growing up? >> no, did not make my neighborhood, did not. >> stephen: no? >> i just didn't. i just didn't. i had other stuff. >> stephen: yeah. it's a little frightening. >> i think it is, and so i wouldn't advise it for, like six-year-olds. but you said third grade. >> stephen: eighth grade--
12:02 am
eight years old. >> around eight to 89 fran i would say is good. so take your kids. your daughters -- take your daughters-- take your sons, too. but i think young kids are going to love it, love it. >> stephen: and what's the darkness today these days, do you? what do you think the darkness is-- ( laughter ) i'm not leading. i promise you. >> you are not leading? >> stephen: i'm not. i'm listening. ( laughter ). >> okay. ( applause ) ♪ ♪ >> it's this pervasive feeling that one group of people is better than the other or one side is better than the other side. and so in times of darkness, we must all be warriors for the light, stephen. >> stephen: oh, i like that. >> yes. >> stephen: i like that. we have to take a little break right here. i want to talk to you about your upcoming presidential run which obviously-- ( cheers and applause ). >> i've said -- >> stephen: i know. i know you're not going to do it. >> yeah.
12:03 am

have ever been around. they don't stop. like in the morning in the trailer. they know every pop culture person, event, everything that's going on. they talk constantly. if you put the two of them together, you won't be able to get a word in. >> stephen: that's why we separated them. we had to. i heard something, that you actually have an odd phobia that i did not know about. gum chewing-- >> it's not a phobia! ( laughter ) i mean -- >> stephen: are you going to yell through this entire interview? ( laughter ). >> no, no. i know, i have this somestrong feel business it. >> stephen: i understand. you're eeght the set right now. okay. so it's not a phobia. you intensely dislike gum chewing. >> i intensely dislike it. and it comes from my childhood. >> stephen: okay. >> i grew up poor in mississippi, and grie my grandmother-- this is absolutely no i had perply. my grandmother would try to save the gum, so she would literally
12:09 am
it's country song about the gum on the bed post at night. she would put it on the bed post and cabinet and everywhere around. as a child i would bump into it, and it would rub up against me. and you know what it's like when you have taken it out of your mouth and it's been out for a couple of weeks? it's bad. so i was afraid of it. i was afraid of it. >> stephen: so what happens if, like, you're some place, and somebody walks in chewing gum, like-- >> it's not good. i had it barred-- it's barred at my offices. nobody is allowed. but when i go out into the world, i can't bar it. ( laughter ) i have no-- i have no powers there. >> stephen: how do you respond? does everybody you work with know this? >> everybody i work with knows this! >> stephen: wow. >> do not chew gum in front of me! >> stephen: i have-- i have done several things with you. no one warned me. i mean, thank god. ( laughter ) ( applause ). >> it's a thing. it's a thing.
12:10 am
it creeps me out. >> stephen: all right, no gum, no gum. spit it out, everybody. ( laughter ) >> this is what you realize, too. crews are chewing it all the time. so i just ignore it. i pretend i don't see it. i keep moving. >> stephen: gooding, that's healthy. >> actually, reese comes up to me on the set and says, "do you want a piece of gum?" and it's like that. and it's greem-- like, if it's colored, i just go crazy. >> stephen: did she know and was just pushing your buttons? >> she didn't know. and i said, "i have a problem." "what kind of problem?" and then, "oh, that's too bad." and she walked off. >> stephen: i will ask her about it tomorrow. >> ask her. >> stephen: one of the things i was saying before the break is there are a lot of people out there who would like to see you be president of the united states or at least run to be president of the united states. ( cheers and applause ). >> i feel humbled and honored by that. just isn't something-- i've said this before. i would know it.
12:11 am
i mean, it would be, you know, everybody saying it, i am very much in touch with my inner g.p.s. i'm in touch with god, the voice of god. >> stephen: in fact you said-- again in "people" magazine, fihave the quote right, "god, if you think i'm supposed to run, you gotta tell me, and it has to be so clear that even i can't miss it." >> that's right, that's right. >> stephen: so have you had any signs at all? >> not one. >> stephen: really? not even the people, like, tweeting or texting or people cheering, none of that is a sign? >> those are all people outside. you know what that is. if 1,000 people tell you to do something but you don't feel it inside yourself. or if 1,000 people say, "that looks good ow, girl," and you know it doesn't. or 10 people say it. you know, it doesn't. so, no, i haven't. >> stephen: well, i guess-- i guess that seths it? >> oprah! stephen! what's up?

( applause ) >> jon: be humble! >> stephen: so why did con step down? according to the white house there was no single factor behind the departure of mr. cohn. however, one factor might be large and orange. ( laughter ) now, here's the deal-- cohn is a proponent of free trade. and trump's new tariffs on aluminum and steel were the most immediate catalyst for mr. cohn's departure. well, that's just economics-- supply and demand. he saw his boss demand a dumb-ass steel tariff so he supplied himself an exit before (bleep) hit the fan.
