post, abc news cheesecake factory poll, voters favor donald trump over hillary clinton 46 to 44%. (audience reacts) but how do you feel about it? (laughter) okay. 4 to 44%. if you do the math, that only adds up to 90%. the final 10% just kept whispering "kill me." (laughter) (cheers and applause) >> stephen: and then bernie sanders burst out of their chest -- (laughter) that's not a real impression of bernie sanders. doesn't seem like him at all. polls also show that trump and clinton are the two most unpopular likely presidential nominees in the history of the poll. at this point, any third candidate would be more likeable than these two. we could be looking at president bedbug-with-a-manbun. (laughter)
11:39 pm
i should have gone for that. i should have gone for the man bun. i could have done that. that's a pretty good luck. so clinton and trump are already attacking each other, which is going to make things really awkward when she attends his next wedding. (laughter) this time, they're attacking each other over guns. on friday, trump was endorsed by the national rifle association, who said in a statement, "guns!" following this endorsement, trump gave a speech to the group, where he promised to do away with gun-free school zones. hillary clinton expressed her outrage, then trump expressed his outrage at her outrage on "fox and friends," clarifying his position once and for all. >> i don't want to have guns in classrooms, although, in some cases, teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly. >> stephen: so, no guns in
11:40 pm
classrooms unless guns in classrooms. settled! i think we just heard donald trump's education plan: kids will learn math by counting how many different positions he takes in one sentence. and the idea of arming teachers -- (applause) and the idea of arming teachers isn't new. a lot of people say teachers should have guns, or tasers, or some kind of weapon. basically, anything except a living wage. (cheers and applause) so trump doesn't think guns should be allowed in classrooms, but does think teachers should have guns. therefore, he thinks teachers should not be allowed in classrooms? it has to be what it means, you know. >> jon: something like that. >> stephen: come to think of
11:41 pm
it, we should have seen this coming. >> i love the poorly educated. >> stephen: ha! ha! he might be president. (laughter) in other unexplainable news, it was just announced that they're going to make a movie based on the video game tetris. that is true. if you're not familiar with tetris, imagine different shaped blocks, and that's it. and get this, the tetris film may be part of a trilogy, which is good news -- it'll give them a chance to deal with all those unanswered questions, like "why?" and "seriously, why?" but i've got to say i was curious how they would add drama to slowly-moving multi-colored blocks, so we here at "the late show" have secured an

this here and on other shows. man, i am worried about print media. seems like these days we lose one national publishing treasure after another. "gourmet" is gone. "details" is gone. rolling stone has gotten so shrunken and thin that it was mistaken for one of the rolling stones. (laughter) and now, the unthinkable has happened: victoria's secret has killed off its famous catalogue! what! what! (audience reacts) no! i was almost done browsing! they made the decision after they eliminated the catalog in two significant markets for a year and didn't see any meaningful change in sales. well, obviously, if the catalogue's not boosting sales, you get rid of it, right? come here! you idiots!
11:45 pm
don't you see! don't you see! it was never about sales! it was about... you know what it was about! these women did nothing to deserve this! they are angels! or maybe, sexualized geese? it's hard to tell sometimes. besides, eliminating the victoria's secret catalog is just plain un-american. this is true -- because porn is banned, every sailor on u.s. aircraft carriers receives a victoria's secret catalogue. and it ain't to buy a macrame crop top. what are they gonna look at now? the restoration hardware catalog? although, i've got to say, i like the figure on those vintage hourglasses.
11:46 pm
i doubt i'd last an hour. okay. doesn't mean anything. that means nothing. legally, i need to inform you that that joke meant nothing. (laughter) clearly, this is going to be tough on the sailors. and this wednesday marks the start of fleet week here in new york city. so i am going to show my support by leaving all my old victoria's secret catalogs outside the studio on 53rd street for any sailor to take for free. they'll be in a cardboard box that, years ago, i labeled "hannukah decorations."

highly educated think to themselves, "which side does the little tassely thing go?" universities everywhere are prepping for the big day: mowing the lawns, quadding the quads, and covering the confederate statues. so far, graduates have already heard commencement speeches from cheryl sandberg at berkeley, president obama at rutgers, and lin manuel miranda at the university of pennsylvania. unfortunately for the kids at penn, tickets to his speech are sold out until 2018. but there's one person the students haven't heard from yet. a pillar of quiet dignity and strength, who everyone admires -- tony stark. but tony's not real. so he asked me to do it. this is stephen colbert's "the late show's 2016 commencement speech." (cheers and applause)
11:48 pm
thank you. students, the band, distinguished members of my audience. i have the honor of addressing you today, to share those precious pearls of wisdom i have stolen from the sea of experience. as you go forward into your lives and careers, remember to be pro-active. don't wait for things to happen. make them happen. if you want a certain job, go out there and kidnap the person whose job you want and assume their identity. get their haircut. learn their family members' names. don't forget that you control your destiny. a full and satisfying life is made up of good choices. so choose to win the lottery. your future is unlimited. don't settle for less than the best.
11:49 pm
unless you're 26 and not married and don't have the career of your dreams yet. then just go with the first person you make eye contact with at the bar. it's not going to get any better -- and let's face it, you're such a great catch? come on. and take it from me: your health is your greatest asset. if you have an open face wound, do not stick your head in an aquarium because you will get an infection. i learned that one the hard way. also, the easy way. of course, none of this will mean anything without friends and family. no matter how busy life gets, always stay in touch with the people who matter to you. and also meticulously catalogue the people who have wronged you -- for they will pay. they will pay. (cheers and applause)
11:50 pm
let your spirit soar! dance like no one is watching because you never know when you'll get laid off and have to turn to adult dancing, and you don't want to work the pole self-consciously. it cuts down on the tips. get amazon prime. two-day shipping, movies, photo storage. you can't go wrong. remember that it is important to plan for the future. have your head cryogenically frozen when you're still young and attractive. don't be afraid to take risks. for example, i'm going to tear up my speech and just speak off the cuff. soup. floor.
11:51 pm
person. other part of floor. that reminds me, always bring a backup copy of your speech. and finally, if you ever get in a jam in your life and don't know how it's going to end remember you can always throw to commercials. we'll be right back with emilia clark. ♪ (cheers and applause) ♪usic: "sex machine" by james brown ♪ ♪

and now, starbucks has an app, where you can have the complete starbucks experience from your own phone: you can order ahead of time, pay ahead of time, and i assume, stare at racks of norah jones albums wondering, "who buys cds?" but this convenience comes at a price. according to the "wall street journal," customers using the app miss the old days of baristas misspelling their names. starbucks's greatest strength has always been being bad at names. this is the company that named their shortest drink "tall." one customer, named aaron rodriguez, told the journal that when he goes to starbucks, instead of aaron with two "a's" "i'm constantly getting 'erin' on the cup or 'aron... that's one little thing i do miss when i use the app." i hear ya, aaron. my name's stephen and every day my coffee cup has my assistant's name on it. what gives?
12:11 am
(laughter) not anything like my name. no, no... people are nostalgic for the artisinal, handmade, name-garbling of yore. as one customer said, "sometimes the barista would include a smiley face on the cup. it makes that trip to starbucks more personal." and when you visit your multinational coffee conglomerate, you want to feel like family! look, i understand it's fun. but to the "wall street journal" and any people who are upset about losing misspelled names, i have to break it to you-- this isn't really something to worry about. there are actual serious problems in the world. let me explain a real news story that you really should be concerned about in a way that might draw your interest. in the middle east, there's a terrorist group called "isis," who have been taking over syria, and recruiting more and more jihadists over social media like twitter.

12:14 am
if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. ♪usic: "sex machine" by james brown ♪
