city, second banna, the debate coverage. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey! thank you very much! wow! >> jon: how you doing? >> stephen: hey! >> stephen! stephen! stephen! stephen! stephen! >> stephen: that's nice. that's nice, thank you very much. that's a live crowd. thank you very much. thanks, everybody. woooo! thank you very much. that's awfully nice. that's awfully nice. ( cheers ) yeah. all right. hey! please! thanks, everybody! welcome to the "late show." i'm stephen colbert.
11:38 pm
we are live from the ed sullivan theater. ( cheers and applause ) beautiful new york, new york, after the vice presidential debate. man, was that vice-exciting! ( laughter ) did you guys watch the debate? you watch the debate? everybody here? ( cheers and applause ) good. that's good. for those of you who missed the debate, i'll boil it down for you: once upon a time there ybs a man who didn't release his taxes and a woman who didn't release her emails-- and fight. ( laughter ) coming into tonight, we knew almost nothing about either mike pence or tim kaine. in fact, "more than 40% of americans cannot name the vice presidential candidates." so these guys are really running for commander in "heyy... chief." what's up, buddy? so the question is, who are these guys?
11:39 pm
tim kaine has been a mayor, lieutenant governor, governor and now senator. he also plays harmonica in a band that is actually called-- i'm not kidding-- the jugbusters. ( laughter ) e applause ) i'm not sure i can say that on as. >> jon: i don't know. this is live, too. >> stephen: i assume junk jiglers was not available. when asked about kaine's preparations, one preparations, one of his aides said, "he doesn't have a pair of lucky debate socks or anything crazy." oh, no! tim kaine gave up his crazy debate socks back in his wild college days. he'd hang one on the doorknob to let his roommate know he was debating. ( laughter ) ( applause ) meanwhile-- big debating fans here tonight. meanwhile, mike pence is the governor of indiana, who worked as a local talk radio host and described himself as "rush limbaugh on decaf." ( laughter ) that's interesting.
11:40 pm
i didn't realize caffeine was the active ingredient in oxycontin. ( cheers and applause ) i didn't know. i didn't know. >> jon: oh! >> stephen: safer than i thought. i gotta get some. as governor, pence's record was marked by his religious freedom bill that allows businesses to refuse service to gay customers on religious grounds. because because as jesus himself said "get out of my pizza parlor, you queers." i'm paraphrasing. obviously, we're paraphrasing. that's a roughly translation. much niecer in the original americaic. they say these vice presidential debates don't matter, and hillary clinton better hope because it was like watching white bread
11:41 pm
get pistol whipped by a jar of mayonnaise: not a lot of flavor, but there was a clear winner. early on, moderator elaine quijano set the rules. >> i would remind you that there is to be no cheering, no booing, re noise of any kind as the debate gets underway. >> stephen: please muffle your yawns, silence your blinks, and apply the breathe-right strips before you fall asleep in your seat. and she was not afraid to ask the tough questions! >> governor pence, let me ask you, you have said donald trump is, "thoughtful, compassionate, and steady." >> stephen: "my question is, governor, have you met donald shump?" ( cheers and applause ) that doesn't sound-- that doesn't sound like it. ( applause ) there was one exciting moment when jose bautista crushed that fastball over the left field wall for a home run. full disclosure: i may have switched over to the playoffs just a little bit.
11:42 pm
one of the things i noticed was how much the candidates were writing while the other was speaking. i believe we have a close-up of what tim kaine was writing. that makes sens. and mike pence-- another good, he did. mission accomplished. mission accomplished. at one point and this surprised me a little bit-- tim kaine used some pretty salty sslk. >> he's trying to sum up what donald trump said. >> stephen: what the fuzz? watch the language, you motherfuzzer. you jugbuster. ( cheers and applause ) thank you. big jugbuster fans here tonight. ( laughter ) kaine also had some colorful attacks on trump: >> he's got kind of a
11:43 pm
personal mount rushmore. vladimir putin, kim jong-un moammar qadafi, and sadam hussein. >> come on. >> stephen: that is untrue, senator. i have seen trump's personal mount rushmore. it's three trump heads and one grimace. mao, pence was pretty passionate. like he was from disney's hall of vice presidents. >> the trump foundation is a private family foundation. they give virtually every cent in the trump foundation to charitable causes. >> stephen: it's true, they give virtually every cent to charities. the dollars, however, all go to donald trump. but pennies-- but the pennies-- here you go. here gu. here are the pennies. dance! hnce! ance. it would be fun to see them do
11:44 pm
that. i gotta say, pence had a pretty good night. there were some surprising admissions from this cultural conservative. >> i try and spend a little time on my knees every day. ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> stephen: apparently, mike pence is also very close with vladimir putin. rew fair warning, fair warning, mike-- indiana businesses can now refuse to serve you. ( cheers and applause ) and it's your law. it's your law. and when kaine mentioned trump's insults of mexicans, for the fourth time, pence had the perfect comeback. >> senator, you-- you-- you whipped out that mexican thing again. ( laughter )
11:45 pm
( applause ) >> stephen: "that mexican thing? that mexican thing?" it has a name, governor. i call it pedro. and it taught me spanish! ( applause ) so onso on, lay. let's say pence's strong performance bodes well for trump since everyone knows the team with the best backup quarterback always wins the super bowl. anyway, i don't know about you, but i am fuzzing happy that that thing is over and that we have a ereat show for you tonight. leguizamo is here. and when we futurn, i'll be over there, talking about the dramatic endorsement donald trump has just received from a major newspaper. stick around, everybody. ♪ ♪ ( applause ) just received from a major newspaper.

( laughter ) now, for the first time ever, -- this is-- this is somewhat surprising-- the "usatoday" has weighed in on a presidential race, calling donald trump "unfit for the presidency." that's right, if donald trump wins, "usa today" believes, there's-- there's-- ( laughter ) ( applause ) melissa, melissa, i want to thank you for being here for my last show. >> my pleasure.
11:52 pm
>> stephen: that's right. i'll try this joke again. ( laughter ) if trump wins, "usatoday" believes there's no "usa tomorrow." ( laughter ) ( applause ) this could have-- wait. do you understand? this could have a huge influence on hotel hallway floors. ( laughter ) this is a huge deal. the "usatoday" has never endorsed a candidate, and they still haven't because while they're against trump, they're still not for hillary, writing "the editorial board does not have a consensus for a clinton endorsement. our bottom-line advice for voters is stay true to your convictions. that might mean a vote for clinton, or it might mean a third-party candidate, or a write-in." ( laughter ) or a plastic bag and rubber band that can fit around your neck. the point is, you have options. now, while the "usatoday" didn't endorse hillary, republican newspapers like the "arizona republic" and "cincinatti enquirer," have.
