manhattan? all right, i'd like to apologize. it's late. my emotion emotions are frayed s hard on all of us. let's do this thing. let me show you how to do it ♪ i have a pen y have pineapple ♪ pineapple pen ape pen ♪ >> just mime it, just mime it, i-- just mime it. >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, stephen welcomes samantha bee. abby elliott. abd asa butterfield. featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now, from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! >> stephen: hey, everybody!
, yeah thank you very much, everybody. thank you, chris! what's on, jon? two, two, two strips of bacon. wow, nice. thank you, everybody. welcome to "the late show." i'm stephen colbert. happy friday, everybody. ready for the weekend? ( cheers and applause ) me, too. i didn't get a chance to talk about this last night but big news just out. it looks like donald trump may have broken the law. you shn be that shocked. "newsweek" has discovered that back in 1998, trump's company violated the embargo against cuba, illegally spending $68,000 on a business trip for representatives of trump hotels and casino resorts. no word yet on whether they were in cuba to scout real estate or find a fresh supply of beauty contestants to fat-shame.
( laughter ) you run out after a while. you run ow after a while. to skirt the embargo-- this is what they found out-- trump's company didn't spend the money directly. instead, they illegally funneled it through a consulting firm who advised them "how to make it appear legal by linking it after the fact to a charitable effort." that's how they got caught. because no one would ever believe trump made a charitable effort. ( laughter ) still, this story shouldn't be a big problem for trump, unless there was some sort of swing state with a huge cuban population who hates anyone who would do business with castro. bu that shouldn't be a problem, unless there's video of him saying he would never invest in cuba from the same year he actually did. oh, there is? and we have it? and i'm pretending to talk to somebody off camera for dramatic effect right now?
then just play it then. >> as you know-- and the people in this room know better than anyone-- putting money and investing money in cuba right now doesn't go to the people of cuba. it goes into the pockets of fidel castro. (applause) he's a murderer. he's a killer, he's a bad guy in every respect. >> stephen: he's a man i'm proud to call my business partner. ( laughter ) i love you, fidel. mwah! this is a damning, corroborated scandal for trump with only one possible result: he goes up in the polls. but we shall see. speaking of donald trump, are you guys familiar with a meme called pepe the frog? for those who don't, here's a picture. here's pepe the frog. and pepe was just designated a
hate symbol by the anti-defination league because people have been abusing the image of a cartoon character to harass and spread hatred on social media," which is shocking, because i didn't know people needed any help spreading hatred on social media. but pepe didn't start as a symbol of hate. he was originally a character in an indie comic about a group of fun-loving stoners called "boys club." it's so hard for women to break into the world of cartoon stoners. here's what happened. then the internet discovered pepe and turned him into a meme, using him to convey emotions like sad, angry, smug-- and those are the only three emotions allowed on the internet these caiz. ( laughter ) soon, pepe became so big that celebrities like nicki minaj and katy perry were posting pictures of him. that's with he ran into the number one rule on the internet: when people online love a thing, people online hate that thing
because some-- let's say people on the internet-- decided pepe had gone too mainstream, so they decided to ruin him for everyone. as one self-described white nationalist put it, as part of a "campaign to reclaim pepe, we basically mixed him in with nazi propaganda"-- you know, like how when the hot tub gets too crowded, you reclaim it by taking a dump in it. ( laughter ) mmmm. mmmm. mmmm. more for me! mao here's the thing: this anti-defamation ban has got to be embarrassing to donald trump because both he and donald jr. have posted images of pepe dressed as trump. and using pepe just reinforces the continuing accusations that trump has courted the white supremacist vote, can which isn't fair. he did not court it. he just said everything they wanted to hear. speaking of scary, halloween is just around the corner.
it is my favorite holiday. it's the one time of year i can eat an entire bag of fun-size snickers, and it's not depressing. it's festive! and everywhere you look, people are hawking spooky halloween swag. but one piece of merchandise has gotten complaints for being a little too spooky. it's the scary peeper creeper, "the suction-cup-equipped halloween decoration that mounts outside your window, simulating a man peering inside." and the website says it's a "scary, fun halloween decoration with realistic details." ( laughter ) i don't know. if it's such a realistic portrayal of a peeping tom, how come you can see both of his hands? >> jon: oh, man! oh, man! ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: oh, man! ( laughter ) no! >> stephen: now, you've got to act fast if you want to get your hands on the creeper, because home depot has already pulled
the item from their shelves in canada. so sad. now the peeper creepers are outside the store sadly looking in. ( laughter ) speaking of creepy, an australian man, after sitting down on a portable toilet, has been bitten by a venomous spider on the penis, for a second time. >> jon: that's nastiy! >> stephen: wow. >> jon: i don't know what he doing wrong, what he doing wrong? wha>> stephen: what are the odd? that must be like being struck by lightning twice-- on the penis. he was taken to the same hospital where they treated his first bite, and the man said "they got worried the first time. this time, they were making jokes." which proves the old saying: "spider bites you on the penis once, shame on you. spider bites you on the penis twice, that's hilarious." ( laughter ) remind me to never go to australia, by the way. >> jon: you better watch that.
>> stephen: but the victim doesn't agree saying: "i'm the most unlucky guy in the country at the moment" unlucky, sir, unlucky? you have been bitten twice in the penis by a spider. that's not a tragic tale. that is a superhero origin story. ♪ spider wang! spider wang! ♪ does whatever a spider can spins a web any size ♪ catches thieves with an open fly ♪ look out! here comes here comes the spider waaaang!♪ ( cheers and applause ) say hi to jon batiste and stay human, everybody. ♪ ♪ ( applause ) >> stephen: as you know, folks, i am a devout the catholic.
but ever since i started this show, i often miss church because i'm so busy not going. ( laughter ) gets in the way. and what i miss most about church, of course, is going to confession. so, i was wondering if i could get some things off my chest with you, the audience. you won't tell anybody, right? >> audience: of course not! >> stephen: you were pretty hesitant there. ( laughter ) this is "stephen colbert's midnight confessions." ♪ ♪ ( cheers and applause ) ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> stephen: standard disclaimer: these might not all be sins, but i do still feel guilty about them. okay, i'll be right back.

ran a marathon just to get a free cup of gatorade. laugh sometimes i worry that when i get to heaven, i won't have anything to talk about with george washington. "so, george, did god let you grow your real bath back, or what?" ( laughter ) i have never cleaned my oven. ( laughter ) i just move every few years.

i tell people i don't believe in casual sex, but the truth is, sometimes i don't wear a tie. ( laughter ) ( applause ) ( cheers ) ( laughter ) ( laughter ) ( coughs ) that second hand full was a mistake. ( laughter ) i like to impress people by saying i have a self-driving car. and they are impressed until they see brick on the accelerator. ( laughter ) during parent-teacher conferences, i stop paying attentions. ( laughter )
i just said the word "attentions" when i meant to say "attention." i'm going to start this joke over again. ( laughter ) during parent-teacher conferences, i stop paying attention. and the parents start to suspect i'm not really a teacher. ( laughter ) the first time i heard the word "brangelina," i thought it was a high-fiber cereal.
