tv The Late Show With Stephen Colbert CBS November 23, 2016 11:35pm-12:38am EST
colbert is headed captioning sponsored by cbs >> and now a "late show" thanksgiving message. >> hi, i'm a thanksgiving turkey here with a special holiday message. but first, i'd like to get something off my breast. would you please stop using your hand to draw me? it's a highly inaccurate depictionave turkey. i mean, look at me. i'm an abomination, a freak of nature, four stubby feathers. and where where's my waddle, my sole means of attracting a mate. without it i'll die alone and never know the sensuous touch of a hand. by the way, why do you even draw turkeys on thanksgiving. you kill us and stuff bread and
onions in our anal cavities and eat us. you soulless monsters. all right, cbs, i'm getting to it. happy thanksgiving, gobble, gobble, see you in hell. >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, stephen welcomes danny devito, max greenfield, and musical guest okay go. featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey! hey, nice to see you. ( cheers and applause )
>> stephen: what's going on, chris? what's going on, mark ?rk hey, everybody. welcome to "the late show"" everybody. i'm your host, stephen colbert. happy thanksgiving eve! i have a lot to be thankful for. i have my friends i work with. we live in the greatest country in the world, that's for sure. and you know who has a lot to be thankful for? donald trump. not only is he going to be the president, but he has the most amazing family. yesterday he told staffers at "the new york times" that his son-in-law jared kushner could help broker peace in the middle east. and after that, maybe he could broker peace between america and the other half of america. ( laughter ) ( applause ) just like-- please. plus, donald trump is the richest president ever.
sure, lincoln made a fortune on those logs, but then he lost it all on his giant hat addiction. ( laughter ) very sad. and with all of trump's businesses, there are bound to be conflicts of interest. for instance, last week "about 100 foreign diplomats from brazil to turkey, gathered at the trump international hotel in washington d.c. to sip trump-branded champagne, dine on sliders, and hear a sales pitch about the u.s. president-elect's newest hotel." well, of course, trump hotels serve sliders. i mean, those mini-burgers make tiny hands look huge. ( cheers and applause ) but i'm not sure the sales pitch was even necessary. one diplomat said: "why wouldn't i stay at his hotel blocks from the white house, so i can tell the new president, 'i love your new hotel!' isn't it rude to come to his
city and say, 'i am staying at your competitor?'" yeah, it would be rude for a foreign diplomat to meet president trump and not stay at a trump hotel, same way it would be rude to come to america to meet president kennedy and not fly into j.f.k. and last week, trump also met with some of his indian business partners who are building a trump-branded luxury apartment complex south of mumbai, seen here on twitter, giving trump the thumbs up and ethics the middle finger. ( laughter ) , of course, now that he is going to be the president, business cannot occupy all of donald trump's attention. he's got to save that for twitter, like his recent tweets about "saturday night live." "i watched parts of @nbcsnl "saturday night live" last night. it is a totally one-sided biased show, nothing funny at all. equal time for us?" ( laughter ) ( applause ) "equal time for us?" ( cheers and applause ) equal-- i don't understand. what does that mean, "equal time for us?" that's not how it works, buddy.
you're going to be the president. that's the guy who gets made fun of. if you wanted to be someone everyone loves, you should have run for ice cream man. and it's the perfect job for someone who can dish it out but can't take it. ( cheers and applause ) and on monday, trump popped over to the youtube to address to the nation. >> today, i would like to provide the american people with an update on the white house transition and our policy plans for the first 100 days. on regulation, i will formulate a rule which says that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated. >> stephen: that's right. for every new rule, we lose two old ones. "hmm, okay, so we just set new standards for carbon emissions, so arson and murder are legal now." enjoy.
of course, the presidency wasn't the only thing people voted on a couple weeks back. there were also a lot of state ballot intiatives. fun fact: a few of them weren't about legalizing pot. there's a weird one in colorado. the state's constitution has some old language in it that still allowed slavery as a punishment for crimes. the ballot initiative would abolish that kind of slavery, and on november 8, it lost. see? you don't have to be depressed about the presidential election. you can be depressed about this instead. here's the deal. there was no organized effort in colorado to keep slavery. so why is it still in there? some people are saying it's because the question on the ballot was confusing. it said, "shall there be an amendment to the colorado constitution concerning the removal of the exception to the prohibition of slavery and involuntary servitude when used as a punishment for persons duly convicted of a crime?" uhhh...
my final answer... what is lincoln, nebraska? ( buzzer ) who is louie pastiewr? ( buzzer ) dammit! why did it have to be so complicated? just write, "should we have slavery?" a) yes. b) no. c) now, look, i'm not racist, but..." ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> jon: hey, hey! i like that one! >> stephen: you like that one? you like that one? you shouldn't like that one. you really shouldn't like that one. i'm here to tell you. of course, some of us are happy with the outcome of the presidential election, while others are surviving on cupcakes and bourbon. and after all this tension, it'd be great to take a break from talking politics, except that tomorrow is thanksgiving, that time of year when families come together to be thankful our elections happen only once every four years. i love thanksgiving, 75% of the time, but this is the 25% that is going to suck.
but can we get through this? i believe we can. as long as we remember that blood is thicker than water, and that blood doesn't come out of the linen tablecloth. put the knife down. so this year, you have a family duty to treat your political opinion just like grandma's jello mold-- choke it down, and keep it down until the guests leave. ( applause ) good old grandma. good old grandma. and i'm going to help you tonight. this is "the late show's post-election thanksgiving survival tips," brought to you, as always, by cranberry sauce out of the can. cranberry sauce the jiggling means we made it with hoof ♪ these are a few guaranteed ways we made it out of hoof. tip number one: the tryptofan
in turkey has a naturally calming effect, so remember to eat a lot of it while driving to dinner. tip 2: change up recipes. this year instead of ground nutmeg on the pumpkin pie, how about a little shaved xanax? ( laughter ) ( applause ) tip 3: just because dinner's not ready yet doesn't mean you shouldn't be eating. remember, an idle jaw is the devil's playpen. ( laughter ) tip 4: cook a second turkey. not to carve. for everyone to stab. ( laughter ) tip 5: the traditional touch football game is a great way to get out aggression without ruining dinner. so this year, make it tackle to the death. tip 6: create new things to talk about by changing up tradition. for instance, this year, deep fry the turkey. you can't talk about politics when you're busy battling the garage fire. ( laughter ) tip 7: definitely prepare a vegan option for your niece home from college. that way, everyone can gang up
on her. ( laughter ) tip 8: remember, these are your relatives, so try not to see them as political opponents but rather as potential kidney donors. stay on their good side. ( laughter ) ( applause ) do all these things-- you never know. do all these things, and i guarantee a wonderful thanksgiving. and that's important because you can pick your friends but you can't pick your relatives-- or, evidently, pick your president, thanks to the electoral college. we've got a great show for you tonight. danny devito is here. but first, when we return, i'm going to help some more americans cook their thanksgiving turkey. stick around, everybody! ♪ ♪ ( applause )

( laughter ) a little bit. i mean, i can't win. the problem is i can't win in this situation because any call i make one side goes nuts. and you should see, some of these kids, they say some very-- and their parents, too-- they say some very mean things to me, very mean things. >> stephen: and you can't say anything back opinion the referee has to stay above all that. you have to stay above all that stuff. >> i know i should not say anything back. i should not respond. but i can't help-- i can't help myself. ( laughter ). >> stephen: well, what do you do? >> i thought i'll take it home with me. and sometimes i'll just wake up at 3:00 in the morning... ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> stephen: you don't. you don't. ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: you tweet at the little girls? >> and people keep telling me, "that's not what a referee is
supposed to do." >> stephen: well, listen, have you talked to the previous referee? >> well, it was interesting because from the sideline last year, i was very critical of him. ( laughter ) i said some tough, tough things. and it turns out, after sitting down with him, he's a great guy. ( laughter ) and i underestimated his job and how complicated it is. look, the middle eastern section of the field alone is a nightmare. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: wow. well, congratulations. >> thank you. >> stephen: congratulations. what an achievement. what an achievement. >> yeah. >> stephen: so do yo do you havy thoughts on the election? >> well, you know, i've actually learned a few things. >> stephen: yeah? >> from this whole experience. >> stephen: yeah, yeah? >> one, nobody wants to see me do a better job than me. really. that's true. ( laughter ) and if by some chance i do, do that-- look, if i'm even a decent referee, i tell you, i
will immediately declare myself the greatest referee of all time and you will never hear the end of it. and i am so hoping that that's what happens. >> stephen: well, good luck. >> well, thank you. and i also think, you know, maybe, if we were a little bit nicer to our referees, just a little bit, then more qualified people would want to be the referee. ( applause ) and, perhaps, we would-- and perhaps, we would be able to explain to our six- and seven-year-old children why all the most important calls on the field are being made by schmidt from "new girl"." >> stephen: you can see max on "new girl," which airs tuesdays on fox and on a soccer field most weekends. max greenfield, everybody. we'll be right back with a performance by ok go. ♪ ♪ ( applause )
