( cheers and applause ) it's not all bad news out there. some of it is absolutely fantastic. for instance, it's getting warmer. spring training right now upon down in florida. i just saw this heartwarming story of a baseball bat flying at a child's head. ( laughter ) did you guys see this today? danny ortiz of the pittsburg pirates is up to bat, takes a
11:37 pm
chop at it, the bat flies out of his hands-- apparently they have not gotten to the part of spring training where they are trained to hold on to the bat-- and it goes straight for the skull of an eight-year-old boy in the stands. and check out how his father protected him with his forarm. look at that! ( applause ) that dad-- that dad-- there's your season m.v.p., and the season hasn't even started. the dad's name is sean cunningham. his eight-year-old son is landon. and this photo is all over social media, and believe it or not, some jerks have criticized the boy for not paying attention because he's looking at his phone and the photo. which is totally unfair. it's not the boy's fault that baseball is so boring. i'm not sure the phone is on. he's just looking--
11:38 pm
and here's the thing. i am feeling a little inadequate as a father right now. and i think a lot of fathers are. not just because of what the dad did. check out his forarm. it's like seeing the bat next to the tree it was made from. i can't compete with that. hold on. let's trade, let's trade. okay.

a new study says binge-watching tv can cause depression. which explains the new phrase, "netflix and weep into a pint of ice cream." >> tonight, stephen welcomes helen mirren. j.j. abrams. and a musical performance by d.m.a.'s. featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now it's time for "the late show with stephen colbert"! ( cheers and applause )
11:41 pm
>> stephen: here you go! mmm! mmm! i'll tell you one of the things, one of the reasons that story of the kid almost getting hit in the head with the bat really resonates with me, when i was a kid, i really liked to throw the bat after i hit the ball. possibly-- i'm not sure where i learned it, but possibly because i had seven brothers, and i was the youngest, and i learned how to bat from them, and they were always showing off in the backyard. so if they hit the ball in our backyard, they would hit and just kind of let it fly, like a gladiator throwing away his sword after he decapitated his opponent. so as a kid i used to always hit the ball and let the ball fly-- let the bat fly. it would just go off look a helicopter of death towards the stand. and my coach would always say, "don't do that!
11:42 pm
don't throw the bat!" and one day i was playing sandlot baseball at my school in james island, south carolina. ( cheers and applause ) serious, james island, south carolina, fans? all right, there are some good people out there from james island. and they know it's all just sand out there if you dig down more than an inch because it's just an old beach with trees on it. and i qot a nice hit, i got a nice hit, and i let the bat go and it starts flying away and i almost take the first base and then i remember, "oh, yeah, coach says, don't throw the bat." and i turned around in time to see the bat, still in air, still just whipping around, and make perfect contact with a kid my age, like fourth grade, right there, sweet spot, right to sweet spot. and to my dying day, i will never forget the image of the kid just going bop, like a starfish and falling over backwards like a duck at an
11:43 pm
amusement park shooting gallery. and i didn't know what to do until, of course, the crowd started yelling, "run! take your base!" and by the time i got on to second, and by the time i got back to home, i think they had dragged him off by his ankles. i'm sure he was fine. i'd like to say i'm sorry to whoever that was, if you ever recovered. ( laughter ) hey, i'd like to do a quick check-in with the audience right now. i do this every so often. it's a quick poll about presidential candidates. is anybody here feeling the bern? ( cheers and applause ) thank you, thank you, that's fine. thank you. i have my sample size. thank you very much. well, brace yourself. i've got some shocking news because yesterday during a rally in michigan, senator sanders dropped a bomb shell about burning down. >> i've done marijuana twice in my life when i was very young
11:44 pm
( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: woooh! woooh! woooh! why are we cheering? because he smoked pot? he only smoked twice! i don't think this is admission is on brand for bernie. senator, do you know who your supporters are? i will tell you this much, they've smoked marijuana twice... smoked marijuana twice since i started this sentence. i for one am shocked by bernie's admission. remember when he dropped this track on us? ♪ as i went walking that ribbon of highway ♪ i saw above me that endless skyway ♪ i saw below me >> stephen: he recorded a
11:45 pm
reggae cover of a socialively anthem and expects us to believe he only smoked pospottwice? was one of those times for 10 years, senator. the only reason i can think of that the senator from the people's republic of vermont has only sparked up twice is that maybe bernie thought it clashed with his political beliefs. "if we pass the dutchie on the left hand side, the bottom 10% of people to the right are getting 80% less dutchie than the elite 1% on dee left hand side. i promise in my administration there will be equal redistribution of dee dutchie." ( cheers and applause ) is what i imagine he would say. ( laughter ) of course, these days, you can get medical marijuana if you suffer from things like anxiety, nausea, and depression. and you know who could use a prescription? every voter in america, because this campaign season has been brutal. as the candidates fight and then
11:46 pm
the candidates fall, everybody just thirsts for their blood. it's terrible. it's like "the hunger games." no, it's worse than that. it's "the hungry for power games." ( cheers and applause ) welcome! welcome to "the hungry for power games"! tributes, assemble! oh, so few remain. you can barely count them on one of trump's teensy little doll hands. ( laughter ) and last week, yet another tribute fell, as retired neurosurgeon and ambien-american ben carson announced he was leaving the race. >> now that i am leaving the campaign trail-- >> no! >> you know, there are a lot of people who love me. they just won't vote for me.
11:47 pm
>> stephen: oh, well, oh, well. you know the old saying, "love means never having to say you're sorry you voted for ben carson." but his fall was not unexpected. he failed to win a single state on super tuesday-- or on average wednesday-- and carson told supporters he sees "no path forward." doctor, with your eyes closed, you can't see anything forward. ( cheers and applause ) oh, oevment! my champagne is going flat! where's my voiceless eunuch! this is andro. this is andro, my voiceless man-boy. andro, make happy bubble now. ( cheers and applause )

more! more! good. shhh! shhhh! shhh! no need to thank me. no need to thank me. back in the pit. back in the pit, andro. ( cheers and applause ) ah, yes. yes. now that has all the sparkle that ben carson lacked. where was i? where was i? yes, yes, yes, yes! oh, yes! when the brave doctor announced his campaign, he set the tone with a rousing battle cry: >> i'm not a politician. i don't want to be a politician. >> stephen: wish granted! ( cheers and applause ) mmm! some in capitol city were surprised he didn't put up more of a fight, given this inspiring
11:49 pm
story of a childhood knife fight. >> i had a large camping knife, and i tried to stab him in the abdomen, and fortunately he had on a large metal belt buckle on under his clothing, and the knife blade struck with such force that it broke, and he fled in terror. ( laughter ) >> stephen: sadly, voters just don't trust someone who is bad at murder. so let us bid farewell to the fallen. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: good night, sweet prince, good night. that is, assuming you were ever awake. we'll be right back with helen mirren. this is a chick car.

that's that's got to be something. you're faims for putting conund ra, different puzzles in your work. >> it's not about puzzles. it's the fun of something-- when people go to see a movie, you don't want to have seen everything in the trailer. when you're watching the film you want the audience to be asking questions. you want people to need to know more. it's not about playing with them. it'sing about btelling a story that's drawing you deeper into it. it's not like an approach. it's what a good story does. >> stephen: i like that. ( cheers and applause ) that should be carved into stone and put on the top of mount hollywood someplace. speaking of mount hollywood, you're absolutely standing on the top right now. i want to say, we haven't talked publicly, since your great success, congratulations on "star wars." >> thank you.
