>> thanks so much for watching, oh, come on. all right, come on. oh, jeez. oh. my hand is stuck. >> it's a lost cause. >> it is not a lost cause. (cheers and applause). >> stephen: what are you doing here? >> well, i don't take money from billionaires but i do check every vending machine change slot. >> stephen: come on. $27. >> nothing. >> stephen: hey, wait, aren't you going to. >> tell you about the west virginia primary tomorrow? >> stephen: ah, sure? >> well, i think we got a shot to win.
11:36 pm
and i'll tell you why. it's because in west virginia like every place else in this country too many people are working longer hours for low wages and they want change, stephen. >> stephen: okay, but even if you do well tomorrow, the delegate math is against you. so isn't this win really only a win. it's not really a win. >> not really. >> stephen: maybe both. i don't know. >> here's the story. it's a narrow shot but we still have a chance to win a majority of the pledged delegates. we're going to fight for every last vote and at the end of the day i hope and believe that we are going to win this. >> stephen: but at a certain point don't you have to say i'm not going to get the thing that i want. look at me, i'm never going to get my candy. >> you've got to believe, stephen. >> stephen: thank you. >> you can't give up on that contested con feks. you've got to rock the system. >> stephen: got it. >> great. we came together. we did it.
11:37 pm
now how about we share that hundred grand bar. >> stephen: i knew it! >> tonight, stephen welcomes kaley cuoco, dan savage and a musical performance by the nationals. featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now it's time for the late show with stephen colbert! captioning sponsored by cbs ( band playing "late show" theme ) hey, everybody! welcome to the late show, everybody.
11:38 pm
hey! hey, man. (cheers and applause). >> stephen: hey! welcome to the late show. thanks so much, everybody. thank you so much. welcome to the late show. i'm stephen colbert. everybody have a nice weekend? lovely mother's day was this weekend. anybody see "captain america: civil war"? anybody see that? (cheers and applause). >> stephen: yeah, whooo! it is also what i will say when i see it cuz here's the thing, it was also mother's day this weekend, like i said. and despite my best efforts to convince my wife that twizzlers and junior mints count as mother's day brunch, she was not buying it. "captain america: civil war" might be a little hard to follow for those of who haven't seen the 12 other marvel movies, but all you need to know going in is that half of the guys are fighting the other half of the
11:39 pm
guys because of reasons. (laughter) speaking of civil war, north carolina is in the news. (laughter) true, true. a tow truck driver, a tow truck driver in asheville, north carolina, who supports donald trump evidently stranded a disabled woman on the side of the road after he saw a bernie sanders bumper sticker on her car. >> boo! >> stephen: hard to tell what side you are on. telling the woman that she was obviously a socialist and that she should call the government for help. he then drove away on a road, i assume he paveed himself. he says-- (cheers and applause). >> stephen: the guy says whenever he deals with bernie supporters they don't pay him, as opposed to the trump supporters who make mexico pay
11:40 pm
him. (laughter) this guy did it for the best possible reasons. he said i think the lord came to me. and he just said get in the truck and leave. and when i got in the truck, you know, i was so proud. that does sound like something jesus would say. (laughter) it's like the story of the good samaritan where he sees an injured man stranded bid side of the road and is about to help him. but then realizes he's got a canaanite bumper sticker and he peels out in his chariot yelling make samaria great again. meanwhile-- (cheers and applause). >> stephen: i don't think i can-- that's going to be blurred. meanwhile, in international news, the government of china has announced that they are banning live streams of women is he duckively eating bananas. did you hear about this. >> yeah, i heard about it. >> stephen: quite disturbing. this is terrible news. now chinese teenage boys have to resort to the sports illustrated produce issue. officials say-- because the
11:41 pm
produce issue would have people with fruit, doing sexual things with vegetables. okay, officials say,-- there are footnotes on that joke. officials say the videos are porn graphic and that they encourage viewers to break laws and harm social morality. so true. rarely do these videos end in a stable long-term relationship with the banana. but not everybody sees this as pornography. here to talk about this controversy is someone who has participated in a number of these live streams, please welcome the banana, ladies and gentlemen. (applause) thank you, thank you for coming, mr. banana. >> hey, that is my most popular film. >> stephen: all right, all right. mr. banana, mr. banana, how do
11:42 pm
you feel about this chinese censorship? >> it's wrong to call it porn. it's art, baby. it tells the story of a lonely woman who needs potassium and a brave hero who rises to the occasion. it's basically "the english patient." >> stephen: i don't know about that. it looks more like porn than art. >> hey, potatoe potahto, by the way, if you want to see porn, you ought to see a woman eat a potatoe. uh-huh, fully loaded, it's nice. >> stephen: thank you, mr. banana. >> here's a freebie for you right now. oh yeah, mr. banana. >> stephen: thank you, thank you, thank you, mr. banana. thank you, mr. banana, everyone. (applause) i don't know about you but i would like to follow up that with a power cleanser. say i had to jon batiste and stay human, everybody. >> yeah! hello!
11:43 pm
♪ (cheers and applause). >> stephen: i can go for a banana right now. the 2016 election is fast approaching. and november will be here any day now. probably sometime after halloween. this is the road to the white house. >> get ready because you're going to be working your asses off. >> stephen: now that donald trump is the presumptive gop nominee, tomorrow's west virginia primary is not exactly crucial. but that did not stop him from holding a rally there on thursday to remind everyone of their important role in the democratic process.
11:44 pm
>> you know, you don't have to vote any more. save your vote for the general election, okay. forget this one. the primary is gone. >> stephen: yes. it is an inspiring meses age it reminded me of patrick henry's immore tal battle cry, give me liberty or don't, forget this one, i don't give a crap. (applause) it doesn't matter. doesn't matter. but trump wasn't just in west virginia to make calls to inaction, he was also there to accept the endorsement of the west virginia coal association which, like all endorsements, comes with a free hat. >> i will put it on. (cheers and applause). >> stephen: wow! wow, he really looks like a miener, right down to that orange soot on his face from years in the dorito mines.
11:45 pm
and i'm sure-- i'm sure-- (applause) i'm sure all the coal minute errs there related to-- miners related to this motion. when they go out after work and play lacrosse. (laughter) 16 pounds, what do you got. and gone. that wasn't trump's only attempt at mime in this speech. he also pretended to drive a car, write a letter, answer a phone and conduct an orchestra. (laughter) so even if he doesn't end up leaving the country, he could definitely lead an improv class. but trump showed he understanded number one health risk associated with coal mining, hat hair. >> does my hair look okay. got a little spray. give me a little spray.
11:46 pm
you know, you're not allowed to use hairspray any more because it affects the o zone you know that right. in the old days you put the ozone on it was good. today you put the hair strai on, it's good for 12 minutes, right. but you know they say that you can't-- i said wait a minute, so if i take hairspray and if i spray it in my apartment which is all sealed and, you're telling me that affects the ozone layer? yes. i say no way, folks. no way. (laughter). >> stephen: truly, truly spoken like a man who spent years inhaling aerosol in a poorly vent lated room. (cheers and applause) no way. no. i was surprised to sew trump so hung up on the current state of hairspray. because i looked it up and the hairspray that destroyed the
11:47 pm
ozone was banned in 1978. so trump has been mad about hairspray for 38 years. to put that in perspective, a woman born in 1978 would have been married and divorced from donald trump by now. i can't wait, i can't wait to see the rest of his 1978 platform. why doesn't tab taste as good. so what if saccharin gives rats cancered. we're worried about rats now, it's ridiculous. i miss flammable pajamas. it made smoking in bed much more exciting. why do we have to wear those seatbelts with the stupid shoulder straps. lap belts work fine. i like my head to slam into the dash board. let me-- let me shake out a-- (applause) i need a moment to shake out of my impression. that's how deep it is.
11:48 pm
but i am interested to see how this speech went over with voters in west virginia. so joining me now, live via satellite from west virginia is coal miner earl van zandt. good evening, mr. van zandt. >> hi there, stephen. how are you doing, everybody? how are you doing there, stephen? >> stephen: mr. van zandt, did you happen to see donald trump's speech in west virginia why. >> sure did,i love trump. i was even going to vote for him till he told me not to. >> stephen: so you related to the speech. >> damn right. i used to think trump was just an out of touch billionaire but then he put on that hat and i realized he's just a regular hat wearing guy with a head that can hold a hat. pretty impressive. >> stephen: okay, i can understand that. but did it surprise you at all when he spent a significant part of his speech talking about hairspray. >> hell no! trump's the only candidate that understands that when you are a coal miner miles underground
11:49 pm
your number one concern is lasting hold. but you know, not too stiff. as a coal miner i still want touchable hair. see? cheesier plaws-- (cheers and applause) >> beautiful, luxurious hair. >> stephen: yeah, lovely, your hair, your hair seems to be holding together nicely. >> yeah, that's cuz of this here can of aqua net from 1954. there handed down from my grandpappy. >> stephen: wow, make sure you get some ventlation in there. >> that's right. >> stephen: clearly trump knows more about coal miners than i thought. >> sure does, well, back to work.

12:08 am
with the word "ordered" that we were actually ordered. not disordered, so on. >> stephen: you are saying nearly. you say nearly full equality. what is the next fight in your opinion? >> well there are several fights for lgbt equality. ongoing it is still legal in half of the united states to fire someone for being lesbian, gay, bi or transor throw them out of apartments and there are movements in north carolina to legalize-- we have to pass civil right pros teks, employment rights protections and roll back tease anti-transand others bills. >> stephen: let's talk about lgbtq issues and i'm throwing the "quks" in there, that it if is a good union, what gus q stand for. >> it depends on who you ask. it can be qi, lfts. we're just going to sing the alphabet song pretty soon and be done with it. >> stephen: scweriously. >> lesbian, gay, bi, trans,

queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, leather fetish, too spirit, just like there are lots of people under our umbrella. >> stephen: maybe there should be one overarching word we could use like human or something like that. >> that would be nice. >> stephen: because it's confusing, because every person has got their own differences from another person. but it can be confusing for swin who even wants to understand, such as myself to keep up with the nom enclay ture. can you be sim pathetic to that. >> it is confusing to me. every once in a while i see the new iteration and i don't know what the letters stand for. >> stephen: you just set up the-- community. >> i will be accused of being-- phobic by the time the show is over. >> stephen: by the way, i think that is the sound they make when they make love,-- can i do that? >> yeah, if but you can't do it on chinese internet. >> stephen: how do you feel about that chinese banana ban. do you think they are on to something. >> first they came for the bananas. who knows where that ends. >> stephen: so here is what is happening in north carolina.

the justice department has said that the north carolina law stating that people must use a bathroom associated with the gender on their birth certificate has been called a violation of civil rights by the justice department. nofort carolina countersued and now the justice department this afternoon counter sued the countersuit. >> all over where people who have already been using bathrooms all over this country forever without incident can continue to use the bathroom. that this is all about an imaginary threat. this is the same stuff what they are saying about transpeople in north carolina and other stuff that they used to say about gay men. that gay men preyed on children, that we lurked in bathrooms, that we recruited and they couldn't tell these lies any more about gays and lesbians so they just started telling these lies now about transpeople. and they couldn't tell the lies about gays and lesbians, because really, neil patrick harris wouldn't do that. ellen wouldn't do that. once people got to know us and we were coming out, people didn't believe this, these lies any more. they are telling about transpeople, that people don't know yet. but because we now have

(cheers and applause) but. >> stephen: is he very popular. >> he's very popular with some
12:13 am
people, with the republican base he's popular. let's not extrapolate that to all the american people. >> stephen: no, no. >> but he has not really emphasized marriage equality or discriminating the lgbt people. he tully said that he opposed laws criminalizing transpeople using the bathrooms that are appropriate for them to use. and so it's kind of a mixed bag. although he has surrounded himself with homophobes like ben carson, like chis yis christie and promised to put people on the supreme courted that will force imaginer equal and-- i don't trust trump in the long-term but he has not-- . >> stephen: is there an uncomplicated relationship with the hillry clinton campaign? >> yeah, absolutely. >> stephen: is it cli kateed well whens hillary clinton is good on lgbt-- . >> stephen: she wasn't always. >> she wasn't always good on, like gay marriage. but neither was barack obama. when you go to somebody, you go to a politician and you say please change your mind. when they change their mind, you don't then spend the rest of their lives going [bleep] for not changing your mind sooner.
