cheesy bread. >> there's danger. >> come on! come on. gotta love it. >> suspense. intrigue. >> oooh, yeah, that's good. >> right now they gotta do-- >> oh, goonies. no, i can't do it again, can't do it again. >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, the democrats trump, trump. >> plus stephen welcomes norman reedus. sean astin. and comedian pat mcgann. 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: thank you very much. tack, tack, tack, tack particular thanks so much. ladies and gentlemen, welcome to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. ( cheers and applause ) well, folks, one year ago today, donald trump was elected president. give him a chance. ( laughter ) yesterday, democrats commemorated this anniversary, by kicking trump's ass, using his arch enemy: the popular vote. ( cheers and applause ) okay, let's go around the horn. let's see the results. let's start in helena, montana, where wilmot collins became the first black mayor in montana's history. ( cheers and applause )
wyoming is the 21st one out there. and in new jersey, democrat phil murphy was elected governor ( cheers and applause ) a sad day for chris christie. so, a day for chris christie. and in his acceptance speech, governor-elect murphy expressed the way a lot of democrats were feeling last night. ( laughter ) let me try that. hold on. ( laughter ) ( applause ) ( cheers )
upset-- ( cheers and applause ) yeah. 15 seats in an upset that stunned members of both parties. both parties? so, even the democrats didn't democrats would win. "what? no, people hate us. i demand a recount!" ( laughter ) virginia also elected its first transgender state lawmaker ( cheers and applause ) danica roem. and in a moment of, i think, sweet irony, the man she beat was bob marshall, the republican who introduced virginia's "bathroom bill." ( cheers and applause ) so, soon there'll be one bathroom bob marshall can't use: the one in his office. ( laughter ) of course, the big race in virginia last night was for governor, where democrat ralph northam stomped republican ed gillespie 54 to 45
saying "virginia is for lovers of everyone but ed gillespie." one person who said he loved gillespie was donald trump, but the second gillespie lost, trump threw him under the tweet bus: "ed gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what i stand for." clearly, if he worked hard, also-- >> jon: oooh! i get it, i get it. >> stephen: he doesn't. also, you're lying. because gillespie copied your whole playbook, "portraying northam as enabling latino gangs, hitting n.f.l. players for kneeling during the national anthem, and promising to keep confederate monuments up." he even copied the part where you lost the state of virginia ( laughter ) well, you know what they say, "imitation is the sincerest form of you lost the state of virginia." mr. trump, all of these elections were about you. significant numbers of voters in each state said trump was a reason for their vote, with
far more voting to oppose you than support you. that's the problem with making everything about you, sir. it means everything, even losing, is about you. that's the downside of narcissism, along-- ( applause ) yeah. yeah. along with no one really loving you. ( laughter ) but tomorrow is another day, and trump is already there, because he's in asia. yesterday, tomorrow, today, he gave a big speech to south korea's national assembly and praised the resiliency of the south korean people.
like korea, and since my election exactly one year ago today, i celebrate with you. >> stephen: urrrr! that is a hard turn from korean life expectancy to "i won the election." ( laughter ) do not have this man give the toast at your wedding: "congratulations to the bride and groom. i hope they have a long and happy marriage, as happy as i was when i hosted the highly-rated 'celebrity apprentice.' top reality show of all time, tremendous. i may now kiss the bride." ( cheers and applause ) ♪ ♪
about himself. >> the united states is going through something of a miracle itself. >> stephen: it's true. ever since you were elected, all my water turned to wine-- technically bourbon, but i'm drinking a lot of it. ( cheers and applause ) then-- ♪ ♪ then the president addressed the most important issue facing south korea: golf. >> korean golfers are some of the best on earth. in fact-- and you know what i'm going to say. >> stephen: yes, so please don't. >> the women's u.s. open was held this year at trump national golf club in bedminster, new jersey. >> stephen: now, it may sound crass, but a lot of presidents use foreign trips to hawk their personal products.
but he was just there to promote dick nixon's salad fixin's. "i am not a crouton!" ( laughter ) but the big question going into trump's trip to south korea was how he'd deal with the threat from north korea. now, past presidents have made a point to visit the demilitarized zone zones between the two countries, or the d.m.z., between north and south. but last week, before he left, the president was playing coy about a d.m.z. visit.
sometimes i enjoy the jokes too much. ( laughter ) then, this morning, press secretary harrah-- i almost said "harrah suckabee sanders. sarah huckabee sanders-- it's going to be a long night. gathered reporters-- ( cheers and applause ) over! it's over! we had a good run, two years, two months. anyway, sarah huckabee sanders gathered reporters who were traveling with the president and made a big announcement... sort of. because it was such a big secret "that she had been instructed not even to utter the location aloud" and said, "this is where we're going" while holding up a piece of notebook paper on which she had scrawled the letters 'd.m.z.'" ( cheers and applause )
which, of course, stands for "where's the fjord?" in case they're going to norway. it was all going according to plan, until the visit to the d.m.z. was called off due to fog. that's right, north korea! watch out kim jong-un! do not test donald trump, because if you do, he will rain down fire and fury the likes you've never seen-- unless it's misty. in which case, seoul is all yours! we've got a great show for you tonight. norman reedus is here. but when we return, trump visits china, and i'm visited by a friendly hobo. he's very nice. stick around. ♪
your... >> ...pudding. pudding. he can finish your pudding. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: jon stewart, everybody! jon-- i don't know if i am. ( cheers and applause ) all right, jon, i gotta ask-- please. he's here all the time. sit down! ladies and gentlemen, jon stewart, obviously. jon, what are you doing under my desk.
