( laughter )
11:38 pm
coming into the evening, joe biden had a big lead in all the polls, and to celebrate, his supporters handed out free ice cream they called joe cones. a joe cone is also what biden wears to make sure he respects personal space these days. just for safety. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) it's a response. >> jon: oh, my. >> stephen: but tonight the joe cone was met by the kamala harris flame thrower. ( cheering ) she-- oh, you watched it. yes. he had the joe cone, but she made joe scream, you scream, we all scream holy cow she might be president! ( cheers and applause ) as-- as a former prosecutharris found everyone else on that stage guilty of being less interesting and sentenced them of two hours of being her pasty
11:39 pm
background singers. ( laughter ) it all started out innocently enough for the vice president when he got a question about reassuring wall street that nothing would change, and he cranked the folksy knob up to 11. >> what i meant by that is, look, donald trump thinks wall street built america. ordinary middle class americans built america. my dad used to have an expression -- >> stephen: he used to say, son, the vikings are coming for all of us and will end this village. it was a long time ago. ( laughter ) take your mother and sister and get to the caves! kamala harris started by biting the head off this question-- >> do you think democrats have a responsibility to explain how they will pay for every proposal s?ey wilkehose >> let me tell you something, i hear that question, but where was that question when the republicans and donald trump passed a tax bill that benefits the top 1% and the biggest corporations in this country? ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: and where are the questions be when i break out the louisville slugger and the oval of pain because after i
11:40 pm
snap him like a bread stick there will be no more questions! next question. ( applause ) and-- i believe in global warming. tonight kamala harris was -- on fire! ( laughter ) look at bernie's face while giving that answer. he's literally licking his lips. "she just took the top 10% of the best 40% of what i was going to say. it's not fair!" ( laughter ) bernie also went after the president. >> the american people understand that trump is a phony, that trump is a pathological liar and a racist-- >> stephen: oh, they understand it, sir. that's the reason why some of them voted for him. ( laughter ) and he bernied on. >> that's how we beat trump, we expose him for the fraud that he is. >> stephen: not sure if we need to do that, senator. trump already has a long history of exposing himself.
11:41 pm
( laughter ) and-- ( applause ) senator michael bennett seemed surprised when a question was >> senator bennett-- ( applause ) --you have said, it is possible to write policy proposals that have no basis in reality, you might as well call them candy. were you referring to any candidate or proposal when you said that? >> was that directed at me? >> stephen: am i supposed to talk? am i on camera? because i was just looking for the salad bar. i'm sorry. this seems very nice. ( laughter ) and then he españoled again. ( speaking spanish ) >> stephen: wow! i knew buttigieg spoke norwegian but had no idea he spoke beto o'rourke! ( piano riff ) ( applause ) that's fantastic. muchas gracias. >> jon: muchas gracias.
11:42 pm
>> stephen: andrew yang is running on a proposal for universal basic income but i'm not sure if he knows that. >> mr. yang, your signature policy is to give every adult in the united states $1,000 a month, no questions asked. >> that's right. >> i think that's like $3.2 trillion a year. how would you do that? >> sorry? ( laughter ) >> stephen: uh, um... uh... with scratchers? with scratchers? ( laughter ) i'm sorry -- i was just trying to remember where i left my tie. i had one when i walked in here. ( laughter ) then congressman eric swalwell showed how tough he was by throwing a punch at an old man. >> i was six years old when a candidate came to the democratic convention and said it's time to pass the torch to a new
11:43 pm
generation of americans. you whippe you whipper snapper! come on! i'll give you the jack johnsons! you little shaver! ( laughter ) at one point, every candidate was talking over every other candidate about something i can't remember other than how kamala harris put an end to it-- ( crosstalk ) >> guys, america does not want to witness a food fight.
11:44 pm
they want to know how we're going to put food on their table. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: oh! oh! yeah, yeah. she had that line ready. yeah, she had that in some tupperware. ( laughter ) ( piano riff ) finally, self-help guru marianne williamson had her own prescription for beating trump. >> i'll tell you one thing, it's really nice we've got all these plans but if you think we're going to beat donald trump by just having all these plans, you have another thing coming, because he didn't win by saying he had a plan, he won simply by saying make america great again. we have to get deeper than these superficial fixes. >> stephen: we have to go deeper than the superficial carefully thought out political policies. has anyone tried fixing america with crystals d bee en, yoga? ( cheers and applause )
11:45 pm
>> jon: watch out! watch yourself there. >> stephen: john hickenlooper was asked a classic debate question. >> john hickenlooper, day one, if you are-- ( applause ) --day one at the white house, how do you respond with-- >> stephen: wh-wh-what the would i do on day one of the white house? well, i would congratulate whoever won the election because i should not be up here. ( piano riff ) but, just, uh-- ( applause ) once again, self-help guru marianne williamson had a more holistic approach to immigration. >> what president trump has done children, not only demonize these immigrants, he is attacking a basic principle of america's moral core. we open our hearts to the stranger. >> stephen: at least i hope so because no one knows who the hell i am. ( laughter )
11:46 pm
just-- ( applause ) mayor pete focused on his faith. >> we've got to talk about one other thing because the republican party likes to cloak itself in the language of religion. >> stephen: i don't know, mayor, it's less of a cloak nowadays and more of a sheet. ( audience reacts ) >> jon: mmm... >> stephen: halfway-- ( laughter ) halfway through, there was a personnel switch with rachel maddow playing the part of lester holt and chuck todd playing the part of a guy who really likes the sound of his own voice. when discussion turns to racism, a lot of the white folks on stage had opinions, but kamala harris had experience. >> we're going to get to you. hang on. >> on stage, i would like to speak on the issue of race. ( cheers and applause ) >> senator harris-- what i will
11:47 pm
say is-- we'll give you 30 seconds since we're going to come back to you on this again in a moment. go for 30 seconds. >> stephen: so for 30 seconds to sum up institutionalized racism that's been plaguing our country since its inception, go! >> i direct this to vice president biden. i do not believe you are a racist, and i agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground, but i also believe -- and it is personal, and i was actually -- it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two united states senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country, and it was not only that but you also worked with them to oppose busing. there was a little girl in california who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bussed to school every day, and
11:48 pm
that little girl was me. >> stephen: i believe harris on busing because she clearly just took biden to school. ( applause ) harris, a very emotional moment. >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: and harris did not let up. >> but, vice president biden, do you agree today -- do you agree today that you were wrong to oppose busing in america then? >> no. do you agree? >> i did not oppose busing in america. what i opposed was busing ordered by the department of education. that's what i opposed. >> well, there's a failure of states to integrate public schools in america. i was part of the second class to integrate berkeley, california public schools almost two decades after brown v board of education. >> because your city council made the decision. it was a local decision. >> and the federal government had to step in. >> stephen: i hope they took
11:49 pm
dental photographs of biden before the debate because they will need a reference to put his teeth back in. ( applause ) then harris turned her fire from biden to trump. >> the fact that we have a president of the united states who has embraced science fiction over science fact will be to our collective peril. >> stephen: well, of course, trump embraces science fiction-- i'm pretty sure his hair was shaved off of a wookiee's ass. ( cheers and applause ) and harris spoke of her personal experience with wildfires in california. >> i spoke with firefighters who were in the midst of fighting a fire while their own homes were burning. >> stephen: and they said to me, now is not a great time, senator, could we talk a little later? ( applause ) then, chuck todd tried desperately to take control of the debate. >> before we go, i'm going to go
11:50 pm
down the line here and i'm ouase two words only, all right? please. >> stephen: uh-- bite me, chuck? oh, sorry. that's three. i apologize. then they had another technical difficulty. >> we're going to continue the questioning now with lester in the audience. we are? we are, in a second, going to have a question from lester in the audience. ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> stephen: my apologies. chuck todd tried once again to do one of his never successful just one-word answer questions, but he got pretty upset when people tried to actually give a
11:51 pm
substantial answer. >> it's a perfect time for me to do another one of these down the line. what is the first relationship you like to reset as president? i'm going to go down the line -- i'm trying to get one or two words here. >> stephen: and please don't talk too much, okay? you're not chuck todd, i am! zip it! zip it! ( cheers and applause ) and when it came to closing statements, marianne williamson had the plan to heal the country. >> i'm going to harness love for political purposes. >> stephen: and anyone curious what she means by harnessing love, do not google love harness, it's something totally different. please, please do not. ( cheers and applause ) ( piano riff ) and kamala harris summed it all up with her closing statement >> thank you all. i just want to leave you with a couple of things.
11:52 pm
>> stephen: joe biden's balls. ( laughter ) we've got a great show for you tonight. chris christie is here! but when we come back, a late show exclusive, the candidate the democrats left out of this debate!
11:53 pm
11:54 pm
11:55 pm
11:56 pm
( cheers and ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: give it up for jon batiste and "stay human"! special guests tonight, the dap kings! in a moment we'll have a
11:57 pm
republican analysis of what happened. governor chris christie is going to be here in a moment. talking about from the opposition's point of view of what they thought happened at tonight's debate. looking forward to that. >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: first, folks, over the last two nights of debates we've heard from many potential candidates for president, also bill de blasio. ( laughter ) but there are also more democrats running that didn't qualify to be in these debates including substantial candidates, like the actual governor of montana, steve bullock, he's the sitting governor of a red state that went for trump in 2016 and he was not on stage tonight. don't worry. while nbc may have hosted the first debate with the other candidates, the late show is proud to host something even more historic-er, the first all- governor steve bullock debate. ( laughter ) ♪ ♪ >> the "late show"'s all
11:58 pm
governor steve bullock debate-- no bull, all bullock. and now our moderator stephen colbert. >> stephen: good evening. i'm not lester holt. a reminder, to qualify for tonight's debate, we looked at the candidates' poll numbers, fundraising and then whether or not they were governor steve bullock. tonight america finds out where governor bullock stands on key issues and also what he looks like. please welcome the sitting governor of montana and candidate for the democratic nomination, steve bullock. >> thank you, stephen. let me begin by saying that i-- >> stephen: just a moment. governor. this is a debate. let's meet your challengers. next up, governor of montana, steve bullock. >> i look forward to a spirited debate. >> stephen: also, governor steve bul-look? >> it's bullock. >> stephen: sorry. bullock. tied with all in the polls, seven more steve bullocks. governors bullock, thank you all for having here. >> thanks for having me.
11:59 pm
>> stephen: my first question is for governor bullock -- sorry, fourth bullock from the left, you there in the striped tie. you didn't qualify for the debates, weren't breaking through in the polls, how do you make the case voters should take you seriously. >> i'm on the only democrat running for president that won in a red state. we've been able to get big, bold progressive things done. if we want to beat donald trump, we need to win back some of the places that we lost in the past and also give people a reason to believe that both the political system and our democracy will work for them. i am that candidate. >> stephen: thank you, governor. bullock number 7, care to respond? >> i agree with everything that governor bullock just said. >> he just said my name, so i believe i have ten seconds to respond. >> stephen: in a moment, sir. but first, we have a comment from-- uh-- you in the middle the center bullock. >> did you just say sandra
12:00 am
bullock, is she here? >> stephen: sadly, again, this is only a steve bullock debate. final question. you made campaign finance reform a central part of your platform. how do you plan to address the so-called dark money? >> you know, fighting against the toxic influence of money in politics, it's been the fight of my career and i think it's the challenge of our time most folks might not care about money in politics, but they do care that tax laws are written for the wealthy when 44% of americans wouldn't have 400 bucks in their pocket. prescription drug companies spend in our elections, we pay more for drugs and healthcare than any other country in the world and we have nothing to show for it. we've kicked dark out of elections in montana and if we can do it in montana we can do it in washington, d.c. and every state across this country. >> stephen: thank you, sir. now, gentlemen, we're running out of time, so you will all have three seconds to issue your closing statements. starting now. ( talking at the same time )
12:01 am
well, we'll have to leave it there. thank you, governors bullock. we now return to our regularly scheduled coverage of pretty much everybody else. back to you, stephen. >> stephen: thanks, steve!

( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: hey, everybody! welcome back to the show! live! we're live! still live! we're live! folks, my first guest tonight is a two-term governor of new jersey, a former republican presidential candidate and author of the book "let me finish," please welcome governor chris christie!
12:06 am
>> stephen: welcome back to the show, governor. >> are we live? >> stephen: we are live right now so don't drop any of your famous f bombs, please. >> not allowed. >> stephen: oh, no, not allowed. >> big f.c.c. issues we would have? >> stephen: yes. if you're number one, can't you throw one or two in there. >> stephen: i'm sure. let's find out. >> let's see. >> stephen: you first. did you watch the debates? >> yes. >> stephen: party aside, if it's possible for you to take the republican hat off, who impressed you? who's got game? >> oh, harris proves she deserves to be on the stage tonight, for sure. >> stephen: i would say so, too. ( cheers and applause ) >> you know, first debates are about proving who belongs and who doesn't, especially in a field that big. it was the same way in our
12:07 am
debates, and harris tonight proved what i've known all along, prosecutors now how to do that. they know how to ask a question, deliver a punch, they know how to do it with a smile on their face, and they know how to look righteous when they're doing it, and she did all that tonight. >> stephen: the righteousness definitely, 100%. >> she definitely had that down. >> stephen: she was emotionally moving at times. >> she was talking from personal experience and all the different buttons you want to push in a small amount of time, she pushed. she made personal experiences part of her answer, she talked about what she had done in her professional career, and she went after the front-runner and she laid real punches on him. >> stephen: she absolutely tore into him a couple of times. >> she did. >> stephen: do you think that was the plan? >> oh, definitely. i think she felt like she had been losing momentum ever since she got in, had become an afterthought. i think what she wanted to accomplish tonight is don't forget about me, i'm real. the only the way to really prove that in a debate tonight is go
12:08 am
after biden. i think it was predictable she would. i was surprised biden wasn't more prepared for it, though i thought his best moments in the debate were when he was going back about the and forth with her because he was really himself. the rest of the time he was trying to remember answers people told him to give. he was stuttering and stammering, going this way and that, wouldn't finish a sentence. so i think it feels like a tough night for biden, but he has room to be able to have a tough night, so i think he's okay. >> stephen: front runner going in, me myself, i admire the vice president greatly, i think he would make a great president, certainly better than the guy we have now. you think you would be a better president than the president we have now. >> i've already said it on this show. >> stephen: we have it on record. hold on -- ( applause ) did biden come out of this the front-runner? because he has a huge lead. >> yeah. he has enough margin of error for himself that he can get red
12:09 am
ready for the next debate. but they're going to come after harris. you've put yourself in a position where everyone is going to be saying tonight, tomorrow, kamala harris killed it. now i'm going to make a name for myself and kick your butt. so she has to be ready to play defense. she had to play no defense tonight. she'll need to play offense. >> stephen: she had to play buddy-buddy to bernie's ideas. she raised her hand when he did. one of his, universal healthcare, only one of them she raised her hand so there was no room between the two of them, so if you had one option for biden, she's your option. >> but she's, like, patting him on the head. it's like, bern's ideas are nice but you know he can't do it. he's too old and he talks weird. and he's yelling all the time. why is he always yelling? revolution!
12:10 am
( laughter ) >> stephen: from your experience of doing this, because you were in seven or eight debates with 17 candidates, kind of a similar kind of situation. >> yeah. >> stephen: what are the ramifications of these debates? like, tonight, i mean, i'm glad that people are watching tonight, but who knows how many people actually watched the debate, it's the thursday before the fourth of july. >> it's not only that. but let's say you didn't watch the debate tonight but you're a big colbert fan. you're watching this and that's the news you get about the debate. maybe tonight you didn't watch but tomorrow you watch the morning shows. the spin that goes afterwards and how you're characterized in the news media in many ways as important as the debate. tonight say goodbye to marianne williams, right? i pray, right? ( applause ) >> stephen: no, but -- no! who gets on the bus with her? >> say goodbye andrew yang. t gg $1,000 and said the total amount
12:11 am
and he looked mortified like he'd never done the math. my god, that much? how about 500? say goodbye to him and eric swalwell. i mean, we're going to break up with russia and make up with nato. his mother is embarrassed by his performance tonight, right? and please, god, can we say goodbye to chuck todd? >> stephen: wow! wow! ( audience reacts ) >> the most pretentious know it all on network news. the guy is just a complete ass. ( audience reacts ) >> stephen: hold on one second. chuck, i think he did a great job. ( applause ) >> chuck, did you watch the monologue? he killed you. ( laughter and chuck's lucky all he did was put the beard on and not the hair because that would have been even a bigger problem. you were all thinking it! >> stephen: we have to go.
12:12 am
you see the chuck todd guy going, what's he doing that for? comb it back! >> stephen: it's a julius caesar! we have to go. when we come back, we'll ask the governor about trump's biggest weaknesses on the debate stage. >> okay. >> stephen: stick around.

12:18 am
done. at least that's what she looks like now. i still think biden, because to have the demographics of the election-- what i mean is trump only won the election by 77,000 votes in michigan, wisconsin and pennsylvania. most of those votes were white working class people who did that. >> stephen: those are joe's people. >> those are joe's folks. joe born and raised in scranton. i think demographically he's still concerned most about biden but-- >> stephen: and there's nostalgia. if we could get back to normal. >> right. >> stephen: going back one administration will kind of restore that with some people. >> and joe is a calming figure. harris has to be that, too. she showed she could be an attacker and prosecutor and that's good and establishes her credibility, but now she's also got to show she's not going to be a mirror of trump. i don't think that wins. >> stephen: i don't see a mirror. she had reasoned things to say, not just red meat. she had ideas.
12:19 am
you can't say he has ideas. >> a lot of people don't think her ideas are reasoned. most people on the stage don't agree with medicare for all. if those people on the stage don't agree, what do you think people in scranton will think? so she has work to do. but listen, if you were her, you came out of it tonight feeling fabulous, unlike last night with bill de blasio and beto o'rourke. beto looked like the kid who hadn't done his homework and got called on in class. what, me? i didn't do the reading. you know, he just looked awful. >> stephen: hi did his work for spanish class. >> right. >> stephen: for history class. that's right.

( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: well, thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me! >> stephen: for people who do not know, you with theskimm, with two m's-- >> yes. >> stephen: --reach over 7- million inboxes every morning. and i'm one of them. >> thank you. >> stephen: i have been skimming for about five years now. what's a sneak preview of what people will get in theskimm tomorrow morning? what is the moment of the debate you will definitely highlight in tomorrow's newsletter?
12:30 am
>> i think kamala killed it and it was past biden's bedtime. ( audience reacts ) >> stephen: wow! >> he had to prove he could thropunches and, two, that people wanted to see this genuine nature come out. i think kamala did both things. she's still got a way to go and i think the moment when that came out is when she was talking about busing and that moment was powerful to watch. >> i think marianne williamson, she was there, but was she there? ( laughter ) i think she was meditating. for a really long time. >> stephen: she was there and on a higher plain.ñi that was a nice place to be, maybe not on stage for a debate. >> but we differ with governor christie. we felt mayor pete got out millennials. we think eric swalwell had moments. >> he out-millennialed pete. >> stephen: really? he did.
12:31 am
that was a surprise that we're going to call. before going into this, no one knew who he was, we couldn't pronounce his name, and i think mayor pete had to check himself and say i'm the youngest guy on the stage and i think it was interesting he was the only one who was a vet and rachel maddow pointed it out. >> the torch comment was a defining moment early on in the debate and biden got bu6k1$8v the torch. >> stephen: well, you guys are very nonpartisan. i haven't the slightest idea what your political leanings are which is why we like theskimm. >> we get hate mail from all sides. >> stephen: congratulations. i know the feeling. ( laughter ) are there any topics in tonight's debate that will be important to the people who received your newsletter thats . our audience is female millennials, you're not our target.
12:32 am
breakdown? gñ so you're part of the 20%, soxds what we see the what we see the audience care about is security, education and healthcare. we saw all those things get addressed. one thing that didn't come up is around family leave and we saw senator gillibrand try to get that in. we think that will come up. it is important to the audience which is the largest part of the workforce and obviously a very key voting block. >> stephen: as i said, you have over 7-million subscribers that reach-- it's a bigger reach than any democratic has on twitter other than bernie who has 9- million followers. what kind of responsibility do you have with that big a microphone? what do you do in an election year particularly that addresses the challenges of the present state of american democracy? >> well, i think our answer to that is to vote. we launch our no excuses
12:33 am
campaign which is to motivate our audience and anyone they know to get out and vote. >> stephen: so you are encouraging people to vote, so you are democrat. ( laughter ) ( laughter ) >> i think we want to be good citizens, and i think everyone should vote. in 2016, we got over 110,000 women registered to vote. ( cheers and applause ) in 2018, we got over 200,000 people to the polls, and now, for 2020, we are part of a movement to get 20 million women to vote. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: how many now? >> 16 million under 17 million voted in 2016. there's an upwards trajectory but millennials who don't like to be stereotyped, we fall into how younger people tend to vote, which is not great. i've got to show up and get there. >> stephen: the good news is younger people tend not to vote, but the good news is that you are all getting older. >> is it good news?
12:34 am
>> stephen: it's very good news. do you mind if i ask how old you? >> oh, thanks. i'm 32. >> stephen: i'm in my very late 30's. ( laughter ) >> yes. >> stephen: you're going to love it. you're going to absolutely love it. you have a new lifestyle book called "how to skimm your life" available now. carly zakin and danielle weisberg, everybody! qca we'll be right back and thank you so much for being here!
