tv The Late Show With Stephen Colbert CBS November 30, 2016 11:35pm-12:38am EST
captioning sponsored by cbs >> hi, stephen. >> oh, hi lauren cohan from "the walking dead." thanks for being on the show tonight. >> my pleasure. you look really down is there it's just-- look, can i ask you a question? >> of course,. >> stephen: i've been fighting this one zombie pretty seriously for months and he has never once tried to eat my brain or rip out my guts. i guess what i'm asking is how do you know when a zombie is into you? >> stephen, what zombie wouldn't want to eat your flesh? >> stephen: i am well marbled-- >> besides, if this zombie doesn't want to tear off your face, you know what? there are plenty of zombies in the sea. >> stephen: really, they're in the sea, too? >> yeah.
they don't have to breath. >> stephen: but what about my zombie? maybe my brain is not juicy enough for him. >> hey, if this zombie is too dim to realize the delicious head meat that is right in front of him, then you don't need him >> stephen: you think so? >> i know so. and believe it our not, one day you're going to find that special zombie who does want to ingest your organs. >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, stephen welcomes. tim daly. lauren cohan. and musical guest, sleigh bells. 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! what's going on? hey, everybody! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey! what's going on? >> jon: i had to get it. i had to get it! >> stephen, stephen, stephen stephen! >> stephen: what's going on? what's up? >> stephen! stephen! stephen! ♪ ♪ ( cheers ) >> stephen: that's awfully nice. thanks, everybody. that's lovely. wooo! ( cheers ) >> stephen: please, everybody, thank you so much. wow. hey, everybody.
welcome to "the late show." so glad you're here. i'm your host, stephen colbert. it's lovely to be back. we haven't seen you guys for a week. i hope you guys-- everybody have a good thanksgiving? ( cheers and applause ) i did, too. i had a fantastic-- jon, you were there. >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: here's something i discovered this thanksgiving. i discovered if you bury your face in the pecan pie, it absorbs your screams. ( laughter ) and best part is, after you-- it's true-- after you put your face in it, you get to have the whole pie. you just keep shovel it in there, and if you keep the pie in your mouth, you don't have time to yell at rick. >> jon: i remember that. >> stephen: so, anyway, what's happening, guys? seriously, what the hell is going on? ( laughter ) i haven't been watching the news much, the last week, and i just kind of dipped my
wick back in it last night, and i still don't know what to make of our president-elect. yeah, it's hard to know what he's doing. and here's one of the reasons. the last time donald trump held a news conference was july 27. remember those days? the conventions were in full swing, rihanna was dancing with drake and into our hearts. mike and dave had not yet found wedding dates. but here's the thing-- donald trump, even though he is now the president-elect, is still not letting reporters follow him. trump is ditching the white house press corps like they're paparazzi. journalists have to trick their way into reporting on the man who's going to have the nuclear launch codes. >> right now, in a new york restaurant-- not far from here, in fact-- president-elect trump is having dinner with mitt romney. how did you get into the restaurant? >> we had gotten a tip, anderson, before this dinner that it was possible they could be here. so like any enterprising reporter, we decided to go ahead
and make a reservation. ( laughter ) >> stephen: yes, it's all about reservations. and i have alot of them. ( laughter ) trump and romney last night were dining at a four-star french restaurant called jean-georges. sounds fancy, but jean-georges could be french for "waffle house." and they were joined by reince priebus, who is trump's chief of staff and not, as you may think, an item on the menu. "would you care to start with some priebus? it has been lightly reince'd." ( laughter ) the billionaire of the people ordered young garlic soup with thyme and sauteéed frogs legs. i thought he said he was going to drain the swamp, not eat its contents. ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: easy being green, baby. >> stephen: sound good,
though, sounds good. >> jon: that's right. >> stephen: here's the thing-- mitt romney at dinner with trump. no. i know mitt is up for secretary of state, but i also know what mitt said during the campaign. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. his promises are as worthless as a degree from trump university. he's playing the members of the american public for suckers. he gets a free ride to the white house, and all we get is a lousy hat. >> stephen: yes, all we get is a lousy hat, and the young garlic soup and the frogs legs. i bet those frogs legs taste a little bit like trump's (bleep). >> jon: whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: now, did. ( cheers and applause ) did trump enjoy this public display of his most prominent republican critic bending the knee? i don't know. let's just check out a photo of trump at the dinner.
yeah, i think he did. i'm glad they shot that from the waist up. because he seems very happy. now, some people think in this photo trump looks like the devil here. i think he looks like the guy who fired the devil one week before christmas. "you can't fire me one week before the holidays. you're a monster. what about my son damien? you know he has asthma. he was counting on that trip to harpy potter world." that's my devil. so trump looks like he's feasting on baby souls in that photo, but what about romney? let's take a look. oh! oh mitt! oh, mitt! i know he ordered the frog, but it looks like he's eating crow. ( laughter ) ( applause )
i know, this is how-- this is kind of how i feel all the time. that face-- i find myself making that face a lot since the election. ( laughter ) what's happening? what's happening? what's happening? i don't know what's happening. ( laughter ) i don't know how much we're going to keep on this for broadcast, but most of-- i think we're off the air at this point, aren't we? all right. you know what i don't necessarily understand. have you heard about the recount going on in wisconsin. for those of you who haven't heard, jill stein, the green party's presidential candidate and grandma's new roommate, is seeking a recount in wisconsin, michigan, and pennsylvania. but she's not looking to change the results. stein explicitly says on her website: "our effort to recount votes is not intended to help hillary clinton."
>> it's all summed up in her campaign slogan-- jill stein:i'm not helping. you know what else isn't helping, donald trump's tweets. he's gotten his phone back, evidently, and he apparently has a lot of free time. what's going tow happen now? is this how we learn about things from the president? are we just going to have a tweet of the union? #strong. trump tweeted plenty oh, the cray-cray this past week. but the craziest was this gentlemen: now, when asked for proof that there were millions of illegal votes, trump said he couldn't provide it because his millions
of dogs ate it. and, yesterday, trump took more time off from setting up-- again, the government of the united states-- to tweet this: ok, first of all, those aren't equivalent things. loss of citizenship-year in jail. that's like your dad saying "johnny, you took the car out without permission. so you're either grounded or castrated." you choose. no, no. that's it, snip, snip. snip, snip. and it looked like trump brought up flag burning out of nowhere. until someone noticed that "'fox and friends'" did a segment on flag burning just before trump's tweet." so there's a chance the president-elect is just firing
off tweets about the last thing he saw on tv, which explains trump's other tweet, "british geckos are stealing insurance commercial jobs from american amphibians. #draintheswamp." ( cheers and applause ) oh, you know what? >> jon: i remember that. i saw that one, too. i saw that one, too. >> stephen: the thing is, no matter how you feel about flag burning-- and for the record i'm not a fan-- i agree that the american flag should not be disrespected. it is a sacred symbol that should be honored, whether it be on paper plates or napkins or banana hammocks. we've got a great show for you tonight. when we return, we'll have some "midnight confessions," so stick around. wooo! ♪ ♪ ( applause )

"what's up, mr. president. what's up, mr. vice president? are you scared?" i think i just got on a watch list or something like that. anyway, it was lovely to have you there. happy thanksgiving. >> jon: absolutely.
>> stephen: happy thanksgiving. as you know, i am a practicing catholic. unfortunately, i don't make it to church as often as i used to because i have this thing where i'm very sleepy in the morning. one of the things i miss-- i love the ritual. my favorite ritual is going to confession. so what i do every so often is cob fess my sins to you, the audience. you won't tell anybody, right? >> audience: of course not! >> stephen: great. this is "stephen colbert's midnight confessions." ( cheers and applause ) ( laughter ) standard disclaimer: these might not all technically be sins, but i do feel bad about them. okay, i'll be right back. ( organ music playing )
audience, audience, i-- i need your forgiveness. i legally changed my name to deb so it wouldn't be stealing when i eat her yogurt in the breakroom fridge.

( laughter ) lately, i've been thinking we should get a written guarantee that our country will last forever before we buy forever stamps. ( laughter ) i have no idea how the stock market works. and all my money is in it.
( laughter ) sometimes, sometimes, audience, sometimes i go to salad bars to feel healthy. then i fill a taco bowl with ranch dressing and bacon bits. ( laughter ) audience, people keep saying tow me, "as a comedian, aren't you just a little bit happy that trump won?" and i gotta say, that makes me want to stab those people in the eye with a fondue fork. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) i mail my own christmas cards because i like the way envelopes taste. ( applause ) mmmmm. hoof.
( laughter ) i greet all of my staff by saying "happy birthday," so i never have to learn if i'm right or not. ( laughter ) if you ever send me your screenplay, i will never read your screenplay. but i can tell you right now it has pacing problems and everyone knows the main character is you. just tell your parent you're gay. they'll love you anyway. ( laughter ) i know eating broccoli would probably add years to my life, but i don't want to spend those years eating broccoli. ( laughter ) sometimes, i wear a superhero costume under my clothes. but it's not a weird thing. it's a sex thing. ( laughter ) ( applause )
if they ever reveal trump's secret list of enemies, i'll be a little hurt if i'm not on it. ( laughter ) ( applause ) ( cheers ) ( laughter ) i like spicy food, but just so i can sweat without having to exercise. ( laughter ) i have a fake service animal. i got a certificate for my dog. i know it's wrong, but i just want her with me whenever i board a roller coaster.

in nick-- in high school, in high school, audience, my nickname was "dr. strange." not because i loved the marvel character, but because i wore a lab coat in gym class. ( laughter ) "i think christmas has become too commercialized" is what i tell people i forget to buy presents for. ( cheers and applause ) i only tip the food delivery guy $1 for every piece of clothing i'm wearing when i open the door. sometimes there's no tip at all.

( laughter ). >> stephen: how do you wear-- jeans last for years? why are you wearing out your jeans so fast, tim daly? >> i don't know. i'm brain washed, i think. i have a problem. >> stephen: do you like the season itself? do you get swept up in the pumpkin space gingerbread latteness of it. i love the music and i love being manipulated by merchandising every year. i do. i know it's christmas when i'm crying over songs i haven't heard in a year. >> no, i do. and, you know, i have a farm in vermont, so i tend to do things like go -- >> hold on, hold on, hold on. "i have a farm in vermont." so... you're just farm dropping over here. "i have a farm in vermont upon of." >> oh, oh,. >> stephen: is it, like, a working farm? sort of, yeah. >> stephen: could you have cows and stuff. >stuff. >> i have heifers-- okay, i have a farmer friend who grazes heifers on my pastures so i get the decorative qualities of the
cows but none of the work. >> stephen: you're not a farmer. you're an exterior designer. ( laughter ). >> no, and i have a big organic garden they grow and i have chickens and stuff like that. anyway, but giup there and cut down sometimes my own christmas tree and drag it through the woods and the kids have a snow ball fight until someone cries. it's great, i love it. >> stephen: memories for a lifetime. you are politically involved. you were supporting the hills. and-- you said last summer, you were like, "i could totally see trump winning." you said that. >> yeah. >> stephen: you said, "it's possible for this guy to win." >> yeah. >> stephen: now that he has do you-- how are you? ( laughter ) i'm just asking a lot of people that, how are you? >> well, you know, i'm not well. look, it was-- it was very difficult for me to take because i worked for hillary, and i believed in her a lot. but that said, i feel somewhat more energized now to kind of
get off my behind and get to work on some of the stuff that i think is really important. i'm the president of an arts advocacy organization called the creative coalition. >> stephen: i heard about this, but i don't know what it is. what is the creative coalition? >> well, our mission is to protect, defend, and promote the arts in the united states, particularly public arts education because it's. ( cheers and applause ) thank you. it's our belief that every child should be exposed to and participate in the arts. as a matter of fact, because of this election, i have-- i'm now proposing a 28th amendment to the constitution. and i want to bestow this upon you, which pretty much says it all. >> stephen: "the right to bear arts." that's nice. ( cheers and applause ) i like that. that's lovely. "an imaginative and expressive population being necessary to the security of a free state, the right to bear arts shall not be infringed."
that's nice. ( cheers and applause ). >> that's right. >> stephen: now, i agree, i agree. it's difficult, though, it's difficult sometimes to quantify what-- like what the value of arts is to-- to-- to the country or to kids. >> it's really hard, you know. and i had this sort of epiphany about a year and a half ago. i was invited to do this podcast called "the infinite monkey cage." >> stephen: i know that. it's a british podcast. >> and this guy named bryan cox a former rock star and astrophysicist, jenna lavin, bill nye, the science guy, and he were guests on this panel. >> stephen: wow. >> and these people were talking about string theory and time travel and black holes and all this stuff. and i'm sitting there thinking, "what am i doing here on this panel with these people, this artist," right. and i noticed something was projected over us on the stage. it was here in new york and it was a huge theater, pack filled. and by the way, projecting on the stage in a radio podcast is
not a good plan, by the way. but it said-- it was a quote from carl sagan and it said, "for small creatures such as us, the vastness is only bearable through love." and i thought, now i know why i'm here. because what carl sagan understood was all the science and engineer and math and the quest for knowledge isn't worth anything to human beings unless it's in emotional context, and that's where artists come in. because we make it something that communicates to people that they can identify with, because arts are the common elect of our humanity. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: i like that. >> just saying. >> stephen: love alone endures, too. yeah, yeah. okay, let me ask you something about "madam secretary" here. okay. people used to say, "hey, madam secretary, loose thiek imitating reality. you got a secretary of state as a woman. and she might become president."
well, now that that didn't happen, how does it feel to be on the show? because for a while there, it really seemed like you were parallelling the real world. >> it turns out i'm on a science fiction show. ( laughter ) i didn't even know. i thought it was kind of based in reality. you know, it's odd. i mean, the thing is that if nothing else, the-- what's happening in our current political situation has been rivettinrivetting and entertaind you worry that, you know, the political situation on the show is going to pale in comparison. but i think that it's actually really a great show for people because it gives this-- this world where it's actually working, which is sort of science fiction. >> stephen: yeah. i'm looking forward to politics that are lesentertaining than our tv dramas. >> that's exactly right. it's like banking. remember when banking usinged to be boring? not anymore. >> stephen: no. now it's a horror show. ( laughter ) well, tim, thank you so much for being here.

( laughter ) but it sounds better in latin. and they give you a book when you arrive there called, "to manners born, to manners bred." this is an actual book you get as a freshman. did he tell you any of the things they taught us there? like, there was a chapter
called, "women and how to treat them." >> yeah, yeah. that's how he treats women. >> stephen: yes never sit while a woman stands, even on a public conveyance. ( laughter ) >> just kidding! ( laughter ) but you have all kinds of secrecy dres codes and -- >> oh, my god, yes. it says in here, avoid colored dinner jackets like the playing. >> what counts as color. >> stephen: anything but blark baby. white dinner jackets look best in the tropics and on humphrey bogart. stick to black. yes. >> i want to write a mock-up for the ladies' guide to this. >> stephen: you're english. do you think that the english are more polite or americans are more polite? >> i'm half glrk half american. but i'm half polite. >> stephen: does either side accept you? >> yes, maybe both, maybe both. >> stephen: to me you sound english. to english people do you sound american? >> every time i go home i'm american and whenever i'm here i'm english with my voice being

( laughter ) and yet are you an american at the same time. like, do you-- do you celebrate thanksgiving when you're in england? >> i remember thanksgiving, and i celebrate thanksgiving in the way that we all do by eating. yeah. yeah. >> stephen: do you eat a lot at thanksgiving. >> i eat pilgrims, i eat -- >> you eat pilgrims. you're on the cover of-- this is not the sort of thing you like

"sheppard's pie?" >> they put sheppards in pie.
>> stephen: delicious. >> if those sheppards are passed, then they can be in the pie. that's the rule. >> stephen: you don't want any pie? no more pie? >> no more pie. >> stephen: no more pie? >> no more pie. >> stephen: really? are you sure? >> oh, no! >> stephen: no more pie?
