(cheers and applause) we're making the turn into the general election right now and the first debates are just a few
monday, september 26. trump vs. clinton. this time it's presidential. (laughter) and i'm proud to say the "late show" will be broadcasting live right after the debate. this fall. (cheers and applause) >> every night. >> stephen: every night. we'll be there. you will want to tune in-- anything can happen. because, during the debate, i'm going play this game where i drink the whole time. (laughter) ? anytime they talk. anytime they talk. (applause) now, this is interesting. you know how, when the candidates are preparing for the debate, they get a sparring partner? someone to play against so they could figure out what their opponent is going to be like? the party acts like their opponent so they're ready for that. but trump is so unpredictable,
i don't see what the problem is. just put a jack o' lantern on a drunk bear. you're done! (cheers and applause) ? ? meanwhile, last week we found out that former fox news c.e.o., roger ailes, is advising donald trump for the debates. sexual harassment. so don't miss this truly historic debate when america's first female presidential candidate gets called "sugarcakes." (laughter) (applause) >> what! it's a compliment! it's a compliment! >> stephen: yeah. trump was in jackson mississippi yesterday, where he was joined on stage by nigel farage, one of
e.u. i don't know what the folks of the deep south have in common with angry white people who want to leave a union. but evidently, they liked him. (cheers and applause) and when trump addressed the crowd, he went right after hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton is a bigot. >> stephen: wh whoo! now tell us if that's good or bad? whoo! don't know. might be a compliment. (laughter) you're a bigot, sugar cakes! (laughter) i know it's hard to look away from trump, but lets play that clip again, and i ask you to focus on the woman behind him.
(laughter) >> stephen: that woman looks like she'd been goosed with an ice pick. she looks like she just woke up from a coma to discover she's a trump supporter. (laughr) was i bad? (laughter) with everything donald trump's been up to lately, it can be easy to forget that one of the things he's doing is running for president. tonight, he was supposed to give a speech laying out his new immigration policy, but instead he's at a fundraiser in aspen. to be fair, a lot of people visiting colorado immediately forgot what they were supposed. to do.
11 million undocumented immigrants. and if you disagree with him on that, well, now he does, too. >> you seem to, in the last week, be revisiting the issue of sending everybody back that is here illegally. >> there certainly could be a softening. >> stephen: this is crazy. the one thing we thought we knew about donald trump was how he felt about immigrants. whenever he spoke on the subject, he was practicall this is totally against his brand! it's like smokey the bear saying "i'm softening my position on forest fires. matches are cool!" but now, trump says he hasn't made up his mind on immigration. in fact, last night, he asked his supporters what they thought he should think. (applause) >> now, can we be, and i'll ask the audience, you have somebody who's terrific, who's been here-- >> 20 years--
long court proceeding, long. everything, okay, in other words to get them out. can we go through a process or do you think they have to get out? tell me. i don't know, you tell me. >> well-- let's do a poll. how many think they should go through a process that maybe give them a chance? clap-- we've got to hear you. >> how many people? (applause) >> how many think they should go? ( applause ) >> stephen: what? what's happening? not entirely sure what we learned right the. dana freeling. >> what's happening?! >> stephen: thank you, dana. (applause) she speaks for many americans. i look forward to trump's state of the union address. ( as trump ) "my fellow americans, the state of the union is... quick poll. strong? weak? damp? yell it out." anything you want. (laughter)
the people. he asked them a lot of tough questions, all at the same time. >> look, let me ask you the process. you have somebody that's been in the country for 20 years, has done a great job, has a job,everything else, okay, do we take him and the family, her or him or whatever and send them out? and they are gone? do we tell these people to get out, number one, or do we work with them and let them stay in some form? (applause) wait, wait, so the bad ones, the gang members, all them, what do you think? (applause) so now we have the person 20 years, been an upstanding person, the family's great, everyone's great. do we throw them out, or do we work with them and try? (audience reacts) >> w-whoa. how many say work with them? >> number one, number one, we'll say throw out. number two, we work with them. ready? number one? ( cheers ) number two.
>> stephen: i think it's fair to say, that was a pile of number two. (cheers and applause) but let's ask the american people. listen to me right here, okay? (laughter) guys, if you think trump should not have asked two or more questions at a time, shout out: "option one." if you think it should've been one question-- that's number two-- start clapping. and if you disagree, stomp your feet and yell. go. ( audience reacts ) perfect. thank you. all right? >> jon: yeah! >> stephen: somebody write those results down. in all the chaos at trump's town hall, one voice rose above the crowd. >> look, this is like a poll. there's thousands of people in this room. who wants those people thrown out?
(audience reacts) >> who wants them? who wants them? who's the guy that wants them thrown out? >> the guy that wants them thrown out, stand up. >> stephen: well, of course that guy agrees with trump. i'm pretty sure it's mike pence! (cheers and applause) >> jon: just like him. now based on that town hall, i think i know what his decision will be: letting the american people decide which immigrants are allowed to stay, in a reality show called "so you think you're one of the good ones!" (laughter) let's play right now. starting with our first undocumented contestant, juan martinez!
he has had a steady job, no criminal record, he is an active member of his church, but, on the other hand, he does smack his gum real loud and still has his christmas lights up. so, let's ask the mob, is juan "one of the good ones"? if you think he is, shout "one". if he's won a green card, shout "won", and if he should be deported, shout "juan". go! ( just as accurate. stick around. we've got the democratic nominee for vice president, senator tim kaine. seems like o nice guy! (cheers and applause) ? [ tires screech ]

>> stephen: welcome to the show. have you been on a talk show like this before? >> i never v. never dreamed i would. >> stephen: you will be doing a lot more of it over the next few months. >> we'll see how tonight goes. >> stephen: so far, so (laughter) how long did you know that you were the vice presidential pick before the rest of us knew? >> about 12 minutes. >> stephen: seriously. yeah, hillary clinton called me about 7:32 friday, july 22, not that it was a memorable moment, and we talked and she said you're about to get kidnapped and i have a team about a mile away to get you. i said how much time do i have
she said, about 15 minutes. so i had to race, tell my wife and kids and call my parents. >> stephen: how did she take it? (laughter) >> we had talked about it before. >> stephen: okay. o she was, you know -- both of us were overcome with emotion, we really very were, and i'm so proud to be a running mate with such a great person. (cheers and applause) >> stephen: well, when you say it's like being >> you know the scene at the end of e.t. where they go up into a big spaceship. >> yeah. there is just a huge operation, a presidential campaign that's been going for 20 months is just massive. so 33 days, i think i have been in 24 states, done all kind of events and the next stretch from here to november 8 will be super intense, but if you have to be on a presidential campaign, just
get to skip all the really hard work. i look at hillary clinton and what she's had to do for the length of these months and days, it's really hard work. >> stephen: let me ask you an important question, how is her health? is she okay? can she sit up under her own power? (laughter) >> i think she could beat me in the new york marathon. but we can't do that because there's a campaign to run. >> stephen: before you accept the position, did anything? joe biden said i want lunch with the president every week. >> when hillary asked me, i started to say yes and she said, i want to tell you why first. she didn't let me answer. what we ended up talking about is she said the test of what we do is not bill signing, it's does it make it better for kids and the people, the workers. i have been a mayor, governor,
the federal level, i think you can help me govern. so we got into the governing stuff. >> stephen: you've had a lot of roles. city council, mayor, governor, lieutenant governor, senator . is there one thing that applies to all the jobs and the seal on your door gets prettier? >> i would say, i was a missionary in honduras 35 years ago, a civil rights lawyers 17 years, bridge builder, i'm about reconciliation and bringing people together. (applause) >> stephen: you were a jesuit missionary. >> yes. >> stephen: do you have a favorite part of the bible, a favorite quote from the new testament? >> from the new testament? >> stephen: that's the jesus portions. >> yeah, that's the jesus portions. i would say paul's letter to the philippians. >> stephen: really? do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit but with hue
yourself. (cheers and applause) >> stephen: i'm a big fan of philippians -- whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are just, righteous, set your mind on these things. >> i don't have a third philippians to to you, so -- >> stephen: okay. hillary clinton said -- i'm going to test you here, she saide that wanted to disagree with her. >> yes. >> stephen: so please your new boss and say something you disagree with hillary clinton on. >> you think i'm new at this? (laughter) i was a lot governo -- i was a lt. governor and my deal was the same with hillary clinton, which
from me. you won't hear about it from the press or see it on tv. the relationship works if you play a supportive role if you are extremely candid in person and can't surprise folks. >> stephen: want to just whisper in my ear? (laughter) what about the the trans-pacific trade pac? this is something people didn't like. mrs. clinton helped with it, you supported it now you're both against it. >> what i was for was the president having the tools to negotiate the best deal possible. so i voted for something called the t.p.a., fast track authority. let the president negotiate the best deal. >> stephen: and he did. and he did. and the deal was on the table and i've got a real problem with it because i don't think the portions i really like, labor, standards and environmental standards, i don't think they can be enforced under this deal and that's why i'm opposing it. hillary clinton said let's do
jobs, increase wages and are good for national security. but if you get there you have to be a bill that can be enforced. there are concerns but that's the major one with me. >> stephen: are you familiar with your role as america's step-dad? a lot has been written about how you look like a dad or step-dad. america, meet tim kaine, your new step-dad. tim kaine is making earnest dads everywhere proud. and from the prom, mister. (laughter) and tim kaine is that soccer dad who can sing around to any rap song but hums the cuss words. (laughter) (cheers and applause) are you okay with not being cool? >> i have been prepared for that for 26 years because i have three children who have been
born. >> stephen: what did you think of trump softening his position on immigration? first of all, a vice president is supposed to be an attack dog as the vice presidential candidate. he called your friend hillary clinton a bigot. do you have -- you know, i'll take you off the chain right now. go ahead after him. >> when hillary clinton got out of law school, she was working to help advance racial justice in the juvenile justice system segregation in alabama. i got out of law school and was battling housing discrimination in virginia. donald trump was a real estate guy who got sued by the justice department for discriminating people in housing writing the letter c on applications if they were minority. hillary clinton has a track record all the way back to being a middle schooler in a methodist
over a million ears of corn are picked a day here in olathe, colorado. and i'm glad we have a senator who uses his ears to listen to what's most important to colorado farmers. michael bennet asked what he could do to help, and then worked with republicans to make a
farm bill that's making a difference to all farmers in colorado. the thing that impresses me most about michael bennet: we don't always agree, but he values our input. and i do trust michael bennet
and i approve this message. (cheers
and applause) ? >> stephen: welcome back, everybody! we're back with vice presidential candidate senator tim kaine. i didn't give you a chance to answer the question i asked you before the break which is what do you make of trump softening his stance on immigration. what do you have to say about that? >> i don't buy it because -- (speaking spanish)
>> stephen: i don't speak spanish. what is the spanish word for "pander"? >> i don't think that word exists in the spanish language. it's unique to the american political tradition. >> stephen: damn it. all right. (laughter) now, you're super busy right now. i think you're doing, like, 12 states in eight days. >> did 12 in 8 and back out on the road starting today. >> stephen: well, before -- you know, earlier in the summary when it was first announced you were going to be the vice presidential candidate, we remarkable simila similarity. you look a lot like my post production manager mark mark sp. we offered him to step in when
but of course if you do step in, i'll need you to be my post-production supervisor >> we'll need to transcode that clip to dnx145 for the avid, then i'll have jason export and send it down to control for rehearsal. >> stephen: that makes just as much sense to me as when mark says it. so what do you think? do you buy him as your double? >> stephen: well, let's find ou who does. jim? >> hey, how aria? you -- hey, how are ya? are you following the election? the political season. >> yes. >> stephen: would you like to meet senator tim kaine?
hello, nice to meet you. police don't forget to vote in november. >> stephen: does he look exactly how you thought he would look? >> i guess. i'm picturing a white guy. >> stephen: they don't get much whiter. ? i got tim kaine ? ? who wants to meet the man ? ? he's running for vice president ? ? it's really him ? who are you supporting trump or clinton? running mate. >> tim kaine. >> stephen: from? virginia. >> stephen: can you pick him out of the crowd? >> no. >> stephen: look over there. is that him? >> stephen: come here. senator. >> hello. >> stephen: senator kaine. hello. >> stephen: anything you want to ask tim kaine. >> what was the best part about

i had my wife there. >> stephen: really? yeah. (cheers and applause) she was a makeup artist on "saturday night live" at the time. >> stephen: did you enjoy doing that meltdown as gary? >> i did. thank you for asking. good question, stephen. (laughter) >> stephen: is that a long time coming. >> yes. >> stephen: your character and couple you played seem like on the verge of a breakdown all the time. >> and i do that really well. (laughter) but, yeah, because my character is so beaten down, and he also worships the ground selena meyer walks on and you watch the people around her make mistake after mistake. in my character's eyes, i don't understand why they're not hand herring the presidency, she's the obvious choice. he sees people make mistake
lost it. >> stephen: some of the show is improvised, right? >> yeah. very rare in television, they give us, like, two weeks before we shoot to rehearse and we get five scripts and we play around and the writers work incredibly hard on the scripps and they give us time to play. but on the set when it's locked, it's physical, if you drop your purse, i'll catch it here, so we can still play what we have. >> stephen: do you ev the initiations or the impulses you have for something the character says when you're in the development period of the script so people don't know which party she's in? because you can't tell whether she's a democrat or republican by watching the show. >> yeah, because they wanted to keep it to where you wouldn't know, but we've got a lot of people on set, not a lot, but they've got a lot of political consultants that help us, yeah, if you go that direction, it
