>> something about a guest who isn't going to say what it says. >> say it! >> stephen: it says you're uncool. >> this is a vintage sweater. i challenge you to settle this like gentlemen! ? ? ( shouting ) (two months later) >> stephen: elijah, great to have you on the show. >> i've been here a couple times, stephen. >> stephen: are you sure? >> remember i was on that one time, and then i came on again and we argued about you not remembering the first time? >> stephen: no, sorry. >> and then we jousted? >> stephen: uhhhh... no.
>> stephen: that's always been there. >> announcer: it's "the late show" with stephen colbert! tonight stephen welcomes tiger woods, elijah wood and jorge ramos, 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! thank you, everybody! ( cheers and applause ) ? >> stephen: jon batiste,
welcome to "the late show"! thank you so much! good to see you! ( piano riff ) hi, everybody! thank you so much! awfully nice. awfully nice. ( cheers and applause ) thank you so much. welcome to "the late show." i'm stephen colbert. everybody feeling all right? ( cheering ) >> stephen: thank you so much for your energy. we have a trump hangover. we are all still recovering from last night's third and final debate, if there is a god. now, everybody's wondering who won. well, cnn named the winner hours before the debate began. they say it was excedrin, for their tweet, "the possibility of
cute. of course, after watching the debate, we know the real winner was: "nyquil-- sweet darkness of sleep, it's your only escape." the polls say clinton won, but trump is no longer accepting the polls or really anything else because this is what he said. last night, when chris wallace asked him if he would accept the election results. tell you at the time. i'll keep you in suspense. >> stephen: yes, suspense. that's presidential. it reminds me of fdr's first inaugaral -- >> the only thing we have to fear is... stay tuned to find out! ( dramatic music ) >> stephen: yeah! yeah!
didn't know. spoiler alert. it was nazis. ( laughter ) now, a lot of people say not promising to accept the results disqualifies trump from the presidency. so, today, trump assured voters that he believes in the peaceful transfer of power. >> ladies and gentlemen, i want to make a major announcement today. i would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the united states that i will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election.
>> stephen: ha-ha! oh, come on! you got to give it to him! you know, you really got me for a second there! i actually believed you had a shred of integrity. what an amazing psych-out. it's like that classic joke where you offer to shake somebody's hand, but when they go to shake it, you undermine our system of government. ( laughter ) so, how did we get to the point where the fate of the american experiment rests in donald trump's tiny, whining, loser hands? ( cheers and applause ) truly. truly, the (bleep) has grabbed us.
( cheers and applause ) watch it. and undermining 250 years of representative democracy to protect his ego wasn't trump's only contribution to the debate. listen to what he said about mexican immigrants. >> we're going to get them out and secure the border and, once the border is secured, at a later date, we'll make a determination as to the rest. but we have some bad hombres here, and we're gonna get them out. >> stephen: yeah, bad hombres. i think he thinks he's running for sheriff. we got hombres, mu chachos, compadres, quesadillas. ( laughter ) i am actually kind of surprised that trump didn't do better because he prepared. trump held practice debates with chris christie playing the role of hillary clinton. so trump was ready, if hillary started weeping quietly while she handed him his mcdonald's
of course, hillary also had her moments. here's what she said about her tax plans -- >> we are going to go where the money is. >> stephen: and she knows where the money is. it's where she gives her speeches. now, say hello to jon batiste and stay human, everybody. ? ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: yeah! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: oh, well, it's been an upsetting campaign, hasn't it, jon? >> we have to deal with it, but it's only four years. >> stephen: we're just a few weeks from election day which means it's time for every
duty, threatening to move to canada if their candidate doesn't win. this happens every four years. canada is like america's safety school. i thought, what would it take if you wanted to move to canada. jim? i met with toronto-based canadian immigration lawyer, andrew cumming, to find out how to turn over a new maple leaf. thanks so much for talking to me today. >> pleasure to meet you. >> stephen: so what do we got here? ask away, on behalf of my audience. >> so, your name, exactly as it appears on your passport. >> stephen: it's stephen colbert. c-o-l-b-e-r-t. >> stephen, do you have any nicknames? >> stephen: oh, let's see: steve, steve-a-rino, eightball, hambone, brangelina. >> stephen, how old are you? >> stephen: how old do you think

the octagon? the canadian octagon? >> no. >> stephen: two men enter, one man apologizes? >> no! ( laughs ) >> stephen: no? sorry. >> let's move on. let's try this one. name two canadian symbols. >> stephen: the maple leaf, and the barenaked lady. >> ( breaths in ) i am going to give you half a check for that. >> stephen: okay, great, all right. things are turning around now. >> ahhh- what are the three branches of government? >> what are the three branches of government? >> stephen: umm, the n.h.l., tim hortons and alan thicke. >> i will have to give x, x and x to that. >> stephen, what are the three responsibilities of citizenship? >> stephen: to defend the queen, for some reason. um, protecting children from wandering polar bears; adding unnecessary "u"s to words like flavor and color; and you must

heartbreaking, how come people don't sing more gord? come on, i am a canadian! i bet justin trudeau couldn't name that many gordon lightfoot songs-- i can sing them, baby! >> that was very, very impressive. >> stephen: thank you, thank you very much. so, am i a citizen now? >> not quite a citizen. in fact, not even a permanent resident. but we would love to have you. >> stephen: well, andrew, i would love to be had. thank you so much. canada, here i come! we'll see what happens on november 8. >> good luck! >> stephen: thank you, canada! we'll be right back with tiger woods!

( laughter ) you've done ll you've got nothing left to prove. >> i love competing. i love playing. >> stephen: reel lie? i love trying to beat these boys, it's fun. >> stephen: and they are kind of boys compared to you because it will be 20 years since you absolutely destroyed everybody at the masters. >> i was giving jordan pretty good grief at the ryder cup because when i won the masters, he was still in diapers. >> stephen: not a metaphor. no. i have been doing this for a
there and competing, i love trying to win golf tournaments and competing at the highest level. >> stephen: are you ever tempted to retire to you can do what retirees do and play golf? ( laughter ) because that's win-win, tiger woods. >> well, here's the deal, golf, when we want to relax to go fishing, what do fishermen do to relax? >> stephen: stop fishing. top fishing. >> stephen: so how long has it been since you played in a pga tournament? >> it's been august, over a year. >> stephen: so anything about your time off, has it been humbling to you about your time not playing? >> yeah, i've had two back surgeries since then and, you know, i like to practice and compete all day. that's one of my things. i like to dpriend it out, but the thing is i wasn't able to do that on the golf course. so i applied my same intensity
duty. ( laughter ) don't laugh. ( applause ) ly spend eight -- i will spend eight hours a day, get a 30 minute lunch break, be in my reclining grandpa chair playing. i thought i was good because i got through the campaigns, no big deal, and went online. when 7-year-olds are beating you from around the world, humbling. >> stephen: time to stop. >> talk about three -- took about three and a half months to grow. >> stephen: really? you look like tiger woods' evil twin right now. you can psych out your opponent with that. >> i'm half asian, so it doesn't quite fill in through here. but i can get this thing going. >> stephen: okay. something like that. >> get a little twirl to it, yeah. >> stephen: i have to ask you one question about your ex-wife. you told "time magazine," less than a year ago, that she is one
how is that possible? keeping your ex-wife your best friend, given how that ended, my trend -- >> right. >> stephen: -- that's more impressive than being 11 time pga player of the year. ( applause ) ( laughter ) ? >> stephen: honest to god, how did you guys work it out? >> you know, it becomes two simple things, okay, is that we and we love them so much, we're going to do whatever it takes to make that work. ( applause ) >that's how it happened, and she's been one of my best friends. i've talked to her about so many different things and she does a does same thing with me, we go back and forth. we communicate so much better now, it's incredible. i wish we had done that earlier on, but it's been incredible to have a best friend like that.
mom's got this cold. hashtag stuffy nose. hashtag no sleep. hashtag mouthbreather. just put on a breathe right strip. it instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than cold medicine alone. shut your mouth and say goodnight mouthbreathers. breathe right. ? every time i travel, it's the moments that are most rewarding. ever forget them. the new marriott portfolio of hotels now has 30 brands in over 110 countries. so no matter where you go, you are here.
look - i supported joe arpaio for a lot of years... but lately, he spends so much time on tv or in court defending himself that he's not doing his job. he failed to serve warrants for violent crimes. he didn't even investigate when children were molested. and lawsuits against him have cost taxpayers we need a new sheriff whose top priority is keeping our community safe. that's why this year,
? ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: we're back with tiger woods. tiger, you're one of the great great popularizer of golf. another man who is known for that is, of course, arnold palmer. here's a photo of you and arnold together ( applause ) arnold palmer just passed away. was he an important figure for you? did you learn much from him? >> he was one of my heros. we became great friends.
as i come off the green, have him give me a great bear hug is something that will always be special to see that photo on the green of us chitchatting. we were always needing each other pretty hard, which is a lot of fun. >> stephen: i understand when you were an amateur, he actually took you to lunch once. >> when i was at stanford he invited me to come to the silverado which is where the i go and i pick his brain a little and i leave. my coach finds out, says did you pick up the tab if it's arnold palmer. i'm a college student. it's arnold palmer. so he says, well, i don't know about this. so he calls nc two as, three
i had to write a check to arnold palmer for $25. i was at el paso for the all american. he had to cash the check, send in a copy and i was eligible to compete in the all american. >> stephen: wow. it's not that strict anymore, right snmpleght it changed a little bit. >> stephen: 20th anniversary of the tiger woods foundation. >> yes. >> stephen: how has it grown snow. >> the emphasis was to get more participation in golf. we did that with junior golf clinics around the country. when 9/11 happened and i drove home on the 13th from st. louis, if i died if that tragic day, what would the foundation look like? well, we wouldn't have anything because we didn't have any
traveling circus of junior golf clinics. i went to my dad and said we need to change this. he said what do you have in mind? i said we need to create something tangible, something kids can call their own. a week later, i said why don't we come up with a learning center. i said okay. i gave my dad the directive. he comes back ten days later and says why don't we create a learning center where i played high school golf at and we create a learning center of 50,000 square feet, and my dad got a chance to actually see it, be a part of it and feel it while there were kids in it -- well, kids with respect in it and then in it. i was wheelchairing them around. he passes about a year later. then i, about two months ago, i bring my son charlie to it. so to have that type of family atmosphere, to have my dad there
incredible. >> stephen: i know that your father was an enormous mentor and influence for you and, you know, when fathers pass, we lose their voice. have you been able to re-create that voice interimly for yourself to have that guidance even though he's gone? >> i do. he says get out of it what you put into it. if you work hard, you get results. if you don't, you won't get them, but more importantly, you don't deserve it because you don't earn each and every day, i think about my old man. ( applause ) >> stephen: well, you've had the great privilege of golfing with quite a few presidents. can i do rapid fire here? i'll name presidents you played with and you give me your impression as a golfer. george h.w. bush. >> fast. >> stephen: fast? fast golfer? good golfer.
>> stephen: clinton? lots of cuts. >> stephen: lot of cuts at the ball or cutting corners? ( laughter ) >> cuts. >> stephen: cuts. all right. i'll get you a lawyer present before you answer that again. w.w. bush? >> no. >> stephen: obama? traight. >> stephen: straight? very competitive, right? >> extremely competitive, hits it straight. >> stephen: hard, long? hard, hit it crooked, not longish. >> stephen: what about trump? you said presidents. >> stephen: the tiger woods foundation celebrating its 20th anniversary! back, everybody with elijah wood! ( cheers and applause )
where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, b. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, control is possible. you're acting so funny, what's wrong, billy?
are they contagious? i don't think so. contract the rainbow! taste the rainbow! this is the story of how mr. bonejangles met his match. mr. bonejangles was always looking for something. but he never found it. until one day... seven in dog time... exactly what he didn't know he was looking for fell right in his lap. was he expecting the perfect toy at an amazing price? no, of course not, he's a dog. but that's the beauty of a store full of surprises. you never know what you're gonna find, but you know you're gonna love it. marshalls. your surprise is waiting. ?i will follow you,? ?ever since you touched my hand i knew? ?i love you, i love you, i love you.? ?where you go i'll follow, i'll follow, i'll follow.?
sexual assault and rape. out-of-control corrections officers arrested. but not one served a day of time. because, with county attorney bill montgomery, some people
are above the law, making us all less safe. there's a better choice -- diego rodriguez, a career prosecutor who believes in tough sentences for violent crime and equal justice under the law. vote for diego rodriguez.
( cheers and applause ) ? >> stephen: hey, folks! welcome back! welcome to tonight's broadcast not live. ( laughter ) my next guest is a great actor, who's been in some of my favorite movies. please welcome elijah wood! ( cheers and applause ) ? >> what a band! >> stephen: amazing, aren't they? >> you're from new orleans, aren't you? >> that's right. i was there two weeks ago. >> stephen: you guys just chat. fine with me. like a vacation. ( laughter ) you're in "dirk gently's
did hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy on hbo america. >> yes. >> stephen: you came back from fantastic fest. >> yes. >> stephen: what is that? a genre film festival that happens in austin, texas. >> stephen: meaning. anything from horror films, sci-fi, action films. this year i think the spotlight was on indian cinemas. they had a lot of hollywood films there so anything encapsulated by genre. >> stephen: can you walk around that or do you get mobbed by everybody because these are ( laughter ) you're not only a fan of it but you're also a darling. you're in these movies. >> this is true. it happens to be one of these fast valse that doesn't separate the fan from the filmmakers and the actors in them and there is a lot of respect for that. everybody intermeng also and they're all there for the same reason, which is to watch the movies and celebrate cinema. >> stephen: i understand people give out free tattoos there? >> yes, four years ago they started giving out free tattoos
i missed that year but every year, consequently, i've gotten the tattoo. >> stephen: you get the freeta too. >> i have a tattoo band around my arm. would you like to see? >> stephen: sure. thank you, sir. stephen: wow. oh, thank you. so that's four years ago. uh got a fire crack, g rubber chicken, and that's a kiju. can we see that clearly? >> stephen: can you make the kiju dance? >> a little flex to hav of the . >> stephen: look at the guns on elijah wood, man! ( cheers and applause ) there you go, sir. >> thank you so, yeah, i have -- >> stephen: well, that's very brave of you to go for the free tattoo, because when i hear
"hepatitis." ( laughter ) you also deejay. >> yeah. >> stephen: do you do it, like, professionally? >> yeah, i mean, semiprofessionally. it's a hobby. i mean, i play in music venues. in november i'm actually going to europe with my friend zach. >> stephen: you are wooden wisdom. >> yeah. >> stephen: what are your deejay -- do you have deejay moves or anything like that? are you one of these or you hit the ipod and sit back? >> it's all final, so anything can happen and go wrong. >> stephen: dance? yeah. put on a song and cross it over and then we'll dance. since there is two of us, it gives us more license. if i was just standing behind the thing by myself, it would feel weird to dance. but since there are two of us, we have that interplay. so it's a lot of fun. >> stephen: no doubt. eeing an audience responding
>> stephen: very similar. you get a response. >> stephen: i'm a joke deejay. so the show is called "dirk gently's holistic detective agency." >> correct. >> stephen: again, written by douglas adams who did hitchhiker's guide. and you play a rock guy, right? who's your character? >> his name is todd bratsman. he used to have a punk band called mexican funeral. he plays guitar. >> stephen: and dirk wants your help to solve -- >> so dirk gently, if any of you are familiar, dirk is a detective but he's not a detective that uses anything traditional in regards to how detectives solve cases. so he doesn't look for clues, no fingerprint evidence, no witnesses. it's all intuition and a feeling
direction. he comes into todd's life by breaking into his apartment and saying todd is his assistant, never having met him. he ultimately gets thrust into this seriously mad case. >> stephen: you were kind enough to bring a clip. jim. >> hi! what are you still doing here? >> what are you doing here? live here. right, but where are you didn't you say you lost your job. >> no, i didn't say that actually. >> i'm on a detective. a case. you worked at the hotel where the murders took place. it's all over the news for people who still watch it, old people maned occasionally. >> was i on tv? ould bit bad for you if you were. >> maybe it isn't. where are you going? none of your business. maybe i'm a cab driver. you said you were on a case.
( applause ) >> stephen: it's a part of a mystery. he's not entirely sure what he's doing. >> not at all. >> stephen: the model of the book is everything is connected. >> yeah. >> stephen: do you think everything is connected? do you think that's true? >> i do. but i think there are so many different ways you can go about believing that. there is a lot of people who believe in the notion of fate. i think i believe in fate with will power, with the ability to change your own life. >> stephen: that's not fate then. because will, like will to power, will in the world is different than fate. >> it eradicates fate. >> stephen: yeah. i believe things happen for a reason. i believe we meet people we're meant to meet. to a certain degree i feel a sense of a path but also agree in free will. >> stephen: i totally believe things happen for a reason. as a matter of fact, two years ago, at the closing party for the colbert report, i actually
who's a big fan of the lord of the rings, i said to him at the party, i'm glad you're here with me, matt, here at the end of all things. >> yeah. >> stephen: and i turned around and you were right there! ( laughter ) things happen for a reason! >> they do indeed! >> stephen: "dirk gently's holistic detective agency" premieres this saturday 9:00 p.m. on bbw america. premieres this saturday 9:00 p.m. on bbw america. elijah wood, everybody! back with jorge ramos! ? ? ? hi, how can i help?
allegations against pinal county sheriff paul ba eu exposed in a damning home video. accusations of widespread abuse at a massachusetts private school. she is sick of hearing sheriff paul babeu lie. allegations of abuse of power. another headache, the fbi has subpoenaed records. lawsuits regarding abuse and neglect. questions of babeu's integrity. new page of controversy. a question of judgment. ultimately voters are going to have to decide if he's the type of candidate they want in congress.
( cheers and applause ) ? i was out here smoking instead of being there for my son's winning shot. that was it for me. that's why i'm quitting with nicorette. only nicorette mini has a patented fast dissolving formula. it starts to relieve sudden cravings fast. every great why needs a great how. how tall are you? how do we measure greatness in america? it's measured by what we do for our children. it's why as president i'll invest in our schools.
i learned as a police officer and a businessman you should never abuse people's trust. unfortunately, today too many politicians either serve their party or themselves, and arizona families suffer. the arizona republic called paul babeu a disgrace. babeu spent $28,000 of taxpayer money at a five-star resort and was questioned by the fbi for using public money to promote himself.
i do my newscast completely by myself. this is fantastic. >> stephen: they really cheer. we could do late show latino ( speaking spanish ) >> stephen: yes. don't say bad hombre, please. >> stephen: don't say bad hombre? ( cheers and applause ) let me ask you about that. people were surprise head said bad hombre. >> it's a stereotype. >> stephen: just means bad man. >> the community is full of buenos hombres, not bad hombres. ( applause ) >> stephen: we have a local hombre running for president. >> you said it. >> stephen: you can say stuff like that because you're a journalist. >> but i can confront trump. >> stephen: you did confront trump august 15 last year.
what happened? what did you do? >> i sent him a half-written note with my cell phone number asking for an interview, then i learned my first lesson which is you should never ever give your cell phone number to donald trump. >> stephen: did he announce it? >> he published it on the internet. so i said, okay, mr. trump, give me a moment. so two months later he had a press conference and we had all these questions to ask him. i raised my hand, i asked a question, he didn't like it. he moved his mouth in a strange way -- ( laughter ) >> stephen: yes. he called his body guard and ejected me from the press conference. the only other person who prevented me from asking a question with a body guard was fidel castro a few years before. >> stephen: do you see any similarities between the two of them? >> can yes, of course. well, they don't like the press.
throw you out of places. >> stephen: any relief, like, i got to leave the press conference? >> no because after that he realized he made a mistake and allowed me to go back. he wie had a back and forth on what he wants to do. he wants to deport 11 million people. that's a horror. can you imagine? that's deporting 11 million in two years. that's deporting 15,000 people 30 747s in 24 hours. he could start a new airline with that. >> stephen: he started that. trump airlines, we'll send you back. ( laughter ) >> stephen: do you think trump is an anomaly with what many are calling racist language or do you think he's expressing something that's already existing.
