tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  September 27, 2017 11:35pm-12:36am PDT

11:35 pm
stephen colbert is next. >> our next newscast is 4:30 tomorrow morning. >> we'll see you then. have a good night. captioning sponsored by cb >> in alabama last week, president trump said the new wall will be done in six to seven months. few people agree with that. >> so you need to have a great wall but it has to be-- has to be see-through. and we're looking at different samp of see-through walls.reyad and i think also, tos blee hont with you, a see-through wall would look better. >>e emperor's new wall." once upon a time there was an emperor who loved walls. one day, two fellows claiming to be contractors came to the emperor and told him they could build him the biggest, most beautiful border wall using special bricks that only the smartest people could see. >> was the emperor smart? >> eh... ( laughter ) and when the see-through border wall was complete, the emperor
11:36 pm
said he loved it, even though he couldn't see it. until a young boy stepped forward and said, "but, emperor, there's no wall there at all." >> andhe y's honesty? >> no. he called him a loser and immediately had him deported. ( laughter ) the end. >> announcer: it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, stephen welcomes trump's alabama bus. plus stephen welcomes: nick kroll. former new york city mayor michael bloomberg. and now live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! ♪ ♪
11:37 pm
( applause ) >> stephen: thank you. well, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. today was a huge day for president trump. in an attempt to get everybody to forget about his recent big failures, he unveiled his next big failure: tax reform. one. and in his kickoff speech, he gave a shoutout to his favorite people: the forgotten ones. >> first, we will cut taxes for the everyday, hard-working americans, the people that work so long, so hard. and they have been forgotten. but they are not forgotten anymore. i think we proved that on november 8. >> stephen: true, we proved a lot on november 8. ( laughter ) i proved that one man can drink an entire bottle of bourbon and still remember everything. ( laughter )
11:38 pm
( applause ) now-- everything! ( cheers and applause ) now, for those of you who think trump's new tax plan is full of cuts for the wealthy and big corporations, well, yes. ( laughter ) but, like any good reality tv star, trp in'sums r heme,stere h believe me. >> stephen: "it's not good for me. i mean, it's about taxes. i never pay those. nothing to do with me. it's not my bag. i don't do it." a. he don't do it♪ he don't do >> stephen: but trump could really use a win right now because things have not been going his way by any measure. the latest is the alabama g.o.p. senate primary. president, fight the
11:39 pm
establishment-backed senator and shaved hodor, luther strange. ( laughter ) trump tweeted his support for strange. he did robocalls, held a rally for him. he went all in! well, remember how trump predicted we'd get tired of winning? well, i think he's already there because he lost, badly. a spanking, really. and to make it sting all the more, they lost to steve bannon's candidate, former judge and "westworld" robot no one wants to have sex with, roy moore. white house aides say the presidenpresident is embarrassed pissed. which coincidentally is replacing "in god we trust" on all u.s. currency. ( applause ) sure, why not. and the proof that he's embarrassed is that trump has deleted his tweets supporting luther strange.
11:40 pm
apparently, apparently, donald trump thinks if you delete something from the internet, it is gone. it's also what he thinks happens to john kelly when they play peek-a-boo. look, mr. president, don't be ashamed that your candidate turned out to be a loser. your supporters seem to deal with it pretty well. nominate a statue of a confederate flag, it looks like roy moore is the next senator from alabama. so, let's get to know mr. moore in tonight's "the roy you know." roy-- there he is. roy moore has waged a decades-long fight against l.g.b.t. rights in alabama, calling homosexuality "an act so heinous that it defies one's ability to describe it." but i'd love to hear you try. "well, i heard the two fellas rub their junk together until a gay baby comes out." ( laughter )
11:41 pm
and-- that's what he heard. that's what he heard. that's what he thinks happens. even-- it's like starting a fire! ( applause ) ♪ ♪ i see smoke! i see smoke! get some tinder! blow on it! this is, obviously, a stick. this is a stick! ( laughter ) and even years of "will & grace" reruns have not softened moore's position, because, earlier just this year, he suggested 9/11 might have been a punishment for the u.s. turning away from god, saying that the almighty was upset at the u.s. because "we legitimize sodomy". you got to give him this one, gay people. we do legitimize it. that's why every time anyone engages in sodomy, they get this cool certificate of sodomy from the franklin mint. ( cheers and applause )ui for f.
11:42 pm
exactly. ( laughter ) here's how roy moore describes our nation's racial divide: >> now we have blacks and whites fighting, reds and yellows fighting." >> stephen: blacks, whites, reds, and yellows? i hope he's talking about the power rangers. ( laughter ) uh-huh. or jellybeans. even if you look past the racist language of calling ethnic groups "reds" and "yellows"-- and you shouldn't-- where does he live where he's constantly seeing native americans and asians fighting each other? ( laughter ) because if that's true-- i got to say, the 2017 reboot of "west side story" sounds pretty awesome. ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: yes! >>applause )
11:43 pm
se sems liteke a tnoroglodyte, e has the soul of a poet. in fact, he wrote this poem: quick fact check: no one wanders aimlessly on cocaine. ( laughter ) they have very specific, unattainable goals, okay? ( cheers and applause ) "you're my best friend. i love you! let's start a business. i want to dance! a dancing business! woo! but first, let's clean the fireplace with a toothbrush!" ( laughter )
11:44 pm
( laughter ) and getting the alabama shakes is not the only thing putting trump in a bad mood. apparently, after his rally to support strange on friday, the president was "griping about the size of the crowd and wondering how his pink tie played with his audience." "look, look, guys. e goto b hnest,eom ca little self-reflection here, okay. something's wrong. i'm achieved nothing. i'm the most unpopular president in modern history. i've deepened america's racialkf thermonuclear conflict. it's got to be the pinkie, right? should giwith-- is it the stripes? are the stripes too much? i don't know. somebody call the pentagon and brooks brothers. i want both of these guys in here." and trump's not giving up on
11:45 pm
repeal and replace just yet. the senate has a friday deadline to pass it with 50 votes, and even though they do not have the votes, trump insists they have the votes. >> i just wanted to say, though, on health care, we have the votes for health care. we have the votes. we have the votes. w, kno y wha you know, we're only one off, maybe two. ( laughter ) >> stephen: then you don't have the votes! that's like a baseball manager saying, "you know, we have the home run. we're just one, maybe two bases short." but just hit the ball." ( cheers and applause ) so they have the votes, but they're not going to have a vote, and there's a simple explanation: >> we have the votes.
11:46 pm
we can't do it now because we have somebody in a hospital. and we have great respect for that gentleman, by the way. he's a fantastic man. we are going to-- yes, that's why. >> why does it matter? >> because he has to come here and vote. >> reporter: sir, who is in the hospital? what senator are you referring to? >> in other words, he can't come here and vote because he's in the hospital. >> stephen: you don't even know his name. there's no one in the hospital. by the way, there is no one in the hospital! we checked. there's no one in the hospital. "i totally have a canadian girlfriend. i don't remember her name. she's in the hospital because we totally had sex. believe me." in fact, "it's unclear which senator in the hospital trump is referring to." well, whoever it is, i just pray they're not on trumpcare. we have a great show for you tonight. nick kroll is here. and when we return, the two of us have some advice for america's teens.ar

♪ and i'm an arborist with i'pg&e in the sierras. the drought in california has killed trees on a massive scale. any of those trees that fail into power lines could cause a wildfire or a power outage. public safety is the main goal of our program. that's why we're out removing these hundreds of thousands of hazard trees. having tools and technology gives us a huge edge to identify hazard trees. my hope is that the work we're performing allows that these forests can be sustained and enjoyed by the community in the future. together, we're building better california.

( band playing ) ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: welcome back, everybody. jon batiste and stay human right there. ladies and gentlemen, i'm pretted knighted because in a little while i'm going to be talking to nick kroll. he's gone to be right over here. he's got a new cartoon on netflix about the horrors of going through puberty. it's called "big mouth." i for one did not realize "mouth biggenning" was something today's kids had to deal with. and it occurred to me that puberty is an issue i haven't really dealt with on my show. and that's unfortunate, because i know that many of you consider me sort of your "tv dad."
11:52 pm

( cheers and applause ) hey, champ. why don't you pop a squat there. let's chat. how old are you now? 13? 14? 35? god, they grow up so fast. now, i know it might be a bit weird for you to hear about puberty with your dad, so i brought someone you can relate >> heeey! ha-ha! what's up li'l cousin bro! i'm also intoon social media! >> stephen: okay, sport, i know okay, sport, i know it's tough

( laughter ) >> stephen: now, slugger-- ( laughter ) i'm glad you're here. >> good to be here. >> stephen: so glad you're here. >> i love you, uncle steve! i love you, uncle steve! ( laughter ) >> stephen: now, slugger, you might soon start to experience body odor. where you used to smell fresh as a daisy, now you're going to smell like an old baseball glove covered in yogurt.
11:54 pm
>> cover that up with some sick body spray. i use one that smells like energy drinks and d.j. equipment! scritchy-scratch! ( laughter ) >> stephen: do not-- do not huff that. just remember, it's perfectly natural-- squirt it right in your eyes ui understand. >> yeeeah! now, champ, it's perfectly natural to be ashamed of your body, okay, because whether you want it or not, your private parts may do things, even while you're asleep. >> that's right-- nocturnal "e-mission possible"! you might dream about a smoking hot babe, your mom with a lioness' head. bottom line is, whatever turns you on, you're going to wake up sticky and relaxed. ( laughter ) you know what i'm talking about, uncle steve? >> stephen: i don't know what you're talking about.

( applause ) >> stephen: and i don't want you to think real sex between real people is anything like what y see on the internet. >> good point. it takes a lot less time, and the lighting is much worse! ( laughter ) >> stephen: and, of course, if you're going to do it, you need to have protection. so here's a little rhyme i came h y upse weltoitu p hyo wrap your penis in latex. ( cheers and applause ). >> yeah, it's true, it's true. no doubt. no doubt, uncle steve. or you can save $10 and just put a tooth whitening strip on your peener. works great!

( laughter ) >> stephen: is pube dee different for further billionaires or is it just as rough? >> it's been a long time. >> stephen: now, we'll skip over that, then. the 2016 election, there was a lot of talk, a lot of rumors
12:16 am
that you were thinking about running. were you seriously considering? >> yeah, sure. >> stephen: okay, you evidently did not see a path to victory. >> well, my advisers told me that a new york billionaire who's changed parties a number of times couldn't be elected.

12:17 am
and what is it? where is the hope? >> well, the hope is here. we can make a difference. it's something we really should worry about. >> stephen: you mean climate change. >> climate change, and whether or not it happens, nobody knows, but you should attack an insurance policy out. and if it looks like it might do damage, now is the teem to take steps and attack a look. the oceans are warming and rising, and you see these term storms that have keld's number of people and done's lot of damage in florida and texas and puerto rico and the crebbian. and with warmer oceans, you're going to get more of those. >> stephen: nowing, many of the people who deny global warming say that it's some sort of hoax or a money-making scheme scheme. from a businessman's point of view, why should a businessman believe in global warming? >> well, it doesn't matter. there's a resk, and a business person would take appropriate protections. you don't think you're going it die, but you still buy a life insurance policy. and businesses have to worry about if they got flooded out,
12:18 am
how they would continue ther business. how ther employees would get to work or get home or worry about their families and that sort of thing. so it's a very serious thing. and the science says things are getting warmer, and they will continue to get warmer unless we reduce the amount of greenhouse gases. and so the federal government has decided to do nothing, the citizens, whether they areub come oft companies or individuas or local governments have saed, okay, we're going to attack it into our own hands and we're going to cut our greenhouse gases. and america has actually been leading the way. we have closed half of our coal-feared power plants. the sierra club went out and pected andquenced people-- power plants to convert to natural gats, which is much-- or renewables. and we are going to meet our goals that we agreed to in percent, even without the federal government. and we only have to. ( cheers and applause )
12:19 am
