( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey! how area you? ( cheers and applause ). >> jon: i like that! >> stephen: what's going on? please, have a seat, everybody. you're too kind. thanks. welcome. welcome to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. ( cheers and applause ) first of all, obviously, happy tuesday, everybody. ( cheers and applause ) tuesday crowd. tuesday crowd. >> jon: taco tuesday. >> stephen: it's the second dave spring? today is the second day of spring. you know who has a bad case of the mondays this tuesday? the trump administration. because, apparently, paranoia
11:37 pm
has seized the trump white house. i'm surprised. i thought russia was going to seize it. trump staffers, evidently, are so paranoid about the media, "they're staying mum in meetings out of concern that their comments could be leaked to the press by foes." i have some bad news. it didn't work, because your foes have leaked your mum-staying. and it's not just the press. not just the press they're paranoid about. white house staff are also afraid that "a 'deep state' of career military and intelligence officials is out to destroy them." now, what is a deep state? i thought it was what you achieved after doing three bong hits and watching "planet earth." very deep, very deep. those lizards are going to get caught by those snakes. snakes are talking to each other. in fact, it's a permanent
11:38 pm
pulling the strings behind the scenes. one white house staffer is so fearful about the deep state spying on him that "once he gets home in the evening, he turns off his work phone and stores it in a drawer because he believes it could be used to listen to him, even when it's off." you fool. now the c.i.a. will have intel on your collection of loose batteries and takeout menus. and when he needs to make a call from home, this staefers, "uses a separate, personal phone in an adjoining room, where stowed work device wouldn't be able to pick up his voice as clearly." smart. because even if there's a vast government conspiracy out to get you, they'd never bug two phones. not going to happen. ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: they aren't going to bug two phones. >> stephen: a lot of paranoia fans here tonight. i think this paranoia is just e
11:39 pm
washington, d.c. it happens every time, you know. you went washington. you went to work for trump because you wanted to tear down the government. now you have to deal with it. now you are the government. it's like a dog who spent his whole life chasing the car. now he has to drive the car. we're not happy about it, either, by the way. remember, we're in the back seat of a car being driven by a dog now. all right. ( cheers and applause ) this dog knows how to drive stick in this metaphor. does anyone here-- this is a kind of private and personal question. mind if i ask you one, a personal question? ( applause ). >> stephen: dozen anyone here dabble in the marijuana? shh! don't tell our attorney general and forest gnome whose riddles are kind of racist, jeff sessions. last
11:40 pm
against the trend of legalized marijuana, saying "i am astonished to hear people suggest that we can solve our heroin crisis by legalizing marijuana, so people can trade one life-wrecking dependency for another that's only slightly less awful." sure, marijuana is only slightly less awful than heroin-- like how burning your tongue on hot cocoa is only slightly less awful than being set on fire. ( laughter ) ( applause ) just a little-- just a little... sessions really is uptight. if only there was some way to mellow him out. something that's legal in half of america at this point. if jeff sessions decides to partake in the sticky-icky, might i suggest he take a trip to the goodwill? because, recently, a cooler full of marijuana was donated to a goodwill location in monroe, washington. and you were mad when your mom donated your comic book collection.
11:41 pm
"mom, have you seen my cooler? i'm going... camping. and i really need my cooler! because, mom, i owe the bears a lot of money, mom. they really want their camping equipment." apparently, employees at this goodwill opened a cooler that had been donated to thrift store and found that it contained 3.75 pounds of pot, with an estimated street value of $24,000. or, as willie nelson calls it, "running low." he's a good guy. willy is a good guy. so as i was saying before, it's tuesday, march 21, the birthday of one of america's finest actors, matthew broderick. and so, i... >> hold it! stop it! stop it! ( cheers and applause ) stop it! ( cheers and applause ) hold on!
11:42 pm
this is madness! >> stephen: what? >> this is madness! no, no, see this man right here is a liar. >> stephen: ryan reynolds, everybody! ( cheers and applause ) ryan, it's good to see you, but i'm kind of in the middle of my monologue here. >> you shut your gorgeous mouth! i cannot stand here and let you lie to this audience. >> stephen: wait, you don't think matthew broderick is one of america's finest actors? >> of course i do, stephen. he's a national treasure! but i've been sitting back there listening to you deceive these people. today is not tuesday. ( laughter ) >> stephen: what? what? ( cheers and applause ) i'm pretty sure it's tuesday. >> it's thursday! thursday? >> you pre-taped this entire show! >> stephen: how dare you, ryan-- what's your middle name? >> rodney. >> stephen: ryan rodney reynolds, if that

( laughter ) here, i'll prove it again. this is the greatest audience in the world. is it tuesday? ( cheers and applause ) what are you going to do now, ryan rodney reynolds, cal
11:45 pm
>> oh, that is just sick. you just stole five days of these peoples' lives! >> stephen: you need to calm down. >> no, you do. you're losing it, colbert. take a good look in the mirror! >> stephen: i don't need to because when i look at you, it's like looking in the mirror. ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> okay, okay. oh! oh! okay. oh! >> stephen: look, man, i'm sorry. >> i'm sorry, i just came in a little too heated-- god you smell great. >> stephen: i don't know what came over here. let's agree that we can't agree. >> stephen: yeah, there's no need for us to fight. why don't yo

12:04 am
i wrapped it up and helped it. it's an amazing special place. i know it's changing. >> stephen: not too much. it was pretty much built out in the 1930s, so it's not like a resort, but the school is a lot bigger. >> we rifd when we rented out during the summer and had no heat. we only rented it in the winter because we had no money. we would get it for nine months a year, move out in the summer and people would spend a lot of money to stay there for a week or two weeks, like air bnbat the time. >> stephen: you lived a lot of different placesaise kid, 30 different places, something like that. why did you move so much? >> my parents were very active, particularly in protesting at that point nuclear proliferation. they felt this country was spending too much time and energy building bombs and weapons as opposed to education and health care.

12:06 am
her on her feet and almost sent her into birth because of the bases there. sheeshe immediately freaked out, called the base, called the military base, and they said there was no aircraft there at all but it literally knocked her to the ground. >> stephen: did people know your parents were there protesting nuclear weapons? >> i'm sure they did it on purpose. >> stephen: wow, you should get a senate subcommittee to investigate that for you. it's never too late and you don't need any evidence at all. just say, "you're going to call my mom a liar? i'll take you to court." how come you don't have a southern accent. >> like you i had it beantown out of me. >> stephen: i went to act expool they said, "no more of that." >> i had the real, charleston accent -- >> stephen: you were born in little rock. >> fayetteville. >> stephen: my apologize. >> but i did, i had it. i had a real southern accent, and my mother was from new york. >> stephen: when does it come back? >> let's get drunk, man. >> stephen: i'm fine, but when

very religious parents. and one day, one of her kids came home homeand talked about how he had to say the lord's prayer at school-- he went to public school. >> stephen: it was in the 60s. >> and she said, "no, you don't." and he said, "well, mom, they said i do. she dragged him into the school and said,"my son does not have to pray." and the woman said, "yes he does." she said, no, he doesn't. sue us." she took it all wait to the supreme court-- i think the amaze thing about the story for everyone to consider, this woman had no money, no political power whatsoever, but she took this mission so far as to go to the supreme court and have the constitution, the laws -- well, the constitution may be honored, it depends on how you look at it. but have the laws of this country change. and it's an amazing thing that she did. and in the process she became, you know, a real true pariah to much of america. they felt like she had taken away this, you know, beautiful thing that happened at the beginning of the school day. >> stephen: right, the idea that there was sort of-- again, there's a perennial sort of football which is prayer in schools. >> exactly. >> stephen: she's theso
12:10 am
happening. >> she stopped it exactly. and her whole point was you can pray but you don't have to pray the lord's prayer. she said should be able to do a prayer from the koran if you want. you should be able to do what you want. it should be your private moment. it became something that was battled over. riots. she had death threats and she createdly the american atheist society, and took it and would literally go to a theater like this with a catholic priest and they would have these dispbz she would rip up the bible in front of everyone and yell and scream. >> stephen: did not make a lot of friends. >> she loved -- >> stephen: and i'm not giving it away-- it did not end well for her. >> it did not end well, which is what i play. i play the guy who she helped-- she was a-- someone who believed in helping others, without a doubt. so she took this guy who was in prison and he worked for her and in the process, she started showing him how she was basically taking the money that people were sending her for the work that she
12:11 am
embezzling it and putting it in offshore accounts. so he realized that. when they had that battle that you see in that scene, she embarrasses him and he decides to retaliate by taking her-- kidnapping her and her son and her granddaughter. and it does not go well. >> stephen: does not gl gwell. and the police didn't even want to look because she was-- >> she disappeared for five years and nobody investigated, the police or f.b.i., because they were so happy she was missing. >> stephen: would. well, happy that you're here. >> grateful to be here. >> stephen: please come back to sullivan's island. you'll still like it.
