vote by text. now, i just want to be clear to everybody watching-- you cannot do that for the presidential election but it does explain why hillary clinton just won "america's got talent." her talent by the way? her talent? >> jon: yes, big time. >> stephen: hillary's talent by the way-- blowing huge leads. now, no one is saying the trump campaign is out to stop people from voting, except for the trump campaign. because last week, an unnamed adviser said that the campaign was having three major voter suppression operations under way," targeting liberals, young women, and african americans. wow, they really don't want alicia keys to vote. ( laughter ) of course, people are angry about the election, but they are angry about everything these days. for instance you north carolina
for everybody to get mad about starbucks' holiday cup. now, starbucks hasn't unveiled their official holiday cup yet, but the new pre-holiday cup is out. here it is. you can get a shot of that jimmy? it's green and has a picture of people drawn with one continuous line, okay, because what says starbucks more than a line that goes on forever ( cheers and applause ) just know your order when you just know your order! it's meant to symbolize unity but people on twitter have written furious responses to this cup, like this one, "starbucks... green cups!? war on christmas. last days." ( laughter ) and perhaps the hottest take of them all: yes!
symbolize this team of peace and love where i will gouge out your eyes with a cinnamon chip scone! people are more divided than ever by this unity cup, so i figured we should check in with someone who's an expert on christmas and, like starbucks, is literally everywhere-- god. let's do that now. are you there, lord? it's me, stephen. >> yes, y how you doing there? i'm here. >> stephen: it's the lord, everybody, say hi! >> hey, everybody, hey, everybody. >> stephen: how you doing, lord? >> well, i'm a little tired from watching the world series the other night. did you like how i made it rain.

( applause ) >> i'd like to say it was fun. >> stephen: one of the greatest movies ever made. do people still kind of yell, "hey, look, it's aragon." is that how they mostly know you? do they think of you as that? >> i sometimes yell that, i'm aragone. i have gotten a lot of mileage out of that. >> stephen: we have your sword. could we have a shot jim? we have your sword. just to make me happy. >> good luck. >> stephen: thanks very much. thanks very much. i don't actually think of you as aragone anymore. >> that's good luck. >> stephen: i'm getting a vibe off of that. i don't think of you just as aragorn, i think of you as thoh, rogorn. i think of you one as one of the descend apts of the brother of

tool. ( laughter ) this is a motorola flip phone from, like, 1997. >> yeah, you don't have to-- you can walk around with it. >> stephen: it's magic, my friend. you have to plug it in. you have to plug it in eventually. >> do you? >> stephen: yes. >> oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. but you can walk around on the street. you don't have to use it just in your house. ( laughter ). >> stephen: that's true. it's one of those new cordless phones that they have. >> i recommend it. i recommend it. >> stephen: when you were-- when you were getting ready to play the dad >> and i'll turn it off because i should have done that. i'm sorry. well, vinny, sorry. yeah. >> stephen: yeah, you really should have. >> yeah. >> stephen: that was very rude of you. >> unprofessional. >> stephen: yeah, it is. >> even. i'm sorry. >> stephen: but you're a consummate professional. you throw yourself into your roles with complete abandon. >> i do. >> stephen: like in this one, you play the father of all these six kids out in the wilderness. >> yeah. >> stephen: again, totally off grid, living in-- what are you
>> a tee tee. >> stephen: do you think this would be a good way to teach children, a good way to raise them? >> honestly it, doesn't matter. you don't have to win out in the woods woodz. but i think the idea, honestly, to be truthful, at all timeses not matter how young the kid is, no matter what the subject, whether it's death, sex, anything, just tell them the the truth, no matter what age they are. i think that's good. and have open discourse and, you know, encourage them to think for themselves and to be able to i think that's all good. >> stephen: well we have a little clip here of-- ( applause ) we have a clip of-- it's you on the family bus talking to the kids about what you're going to have to do as a family or how you might have to conform, because mom is actually back in the city because she has some-- >> problems. >> stephen: some problems that have to be dealt with in the
back into society and this is you telling them how life is. >> yeah. >> stephen: another jim? >> powerful, controlled the lives of the powerless. and that's the way the world works. it's unjust, and it's unfair. but that's just too damn bad. we have to shut up and accept it. ( bleep ) that. ( applause ) that was-- you know, i mean, it's also a road trip. the kids insist on going to see the mom, even though i've been told by my in-laws, who are quite a bit different. they're very conservative, sort
and we've been-- i've been forbidden to come anywhere near their daughter. and the kids insist on going on this road trip, and that's when everything starts to go haywire. >> stephen: how much of that is what you're like? could you give that speech and end it with ( bleep ) that? is that how you live your life? because you know you're not-- >> like to my son, could i say that? >> stephen: do anybody. not just raising a child, but is that how you feel, like you have to-- do you yourself spread because i know you're not choosing between trump and clinton in this election. >> no, i'm not. i'm voting for jill stein for the same reason i supported bernie sanders, you know, because she's talking in a meaningful way about many things that aren't discussed in the debates. >> stephen: like what? >> they're not really going into climate change in a big way. they're summer not talking about overspending in the military. they're not talking about--
i mean trump and clinton are trying to outdo each other saying, "i'm going to kick ass here. i'm going to kick ass there." she has proven to us she likes to do that and not always the best idea when she does that at times, and she's bellicose. trump, who know what he will do. as far as foreign policy, i would say they trust her about as far as i could throw trump. >> stephen: so to you, there's no difference between the two essentially? it's like curse on both their houses. >> i do honestly think it's one of the-- one of the poorest-- maybe the poorest choice we've had in an election in my lifetime. and it's unfortunate. and i've had a lot of people-- and i understand their point of view, you know, friends and strangers, publicly and private, go after mea&say, "how could you do that? you're naive. you're stupid. you're elitist. you're a patsy for trump." i just don't want to get to the
ever when it didn't matter. and you can make an excuse every year for not voting for a third party. i don't know. i want to vote my conscience and feel right about it. >> stephen: do you live in the united states? >> yes, i do. i won't be for long? is that what you're saying? >> stephen: i have some evidence here that you actually are a nonconformist and you spread the spirit of nonconformity, because this is you and all the children in movie. and this is you on the red carpet at the cannes film festival. it's true? >> yes, it is. >> stephen: can you explain how this came about? ( laughter ). >> i think our middle fingers have been blurred out. >> stephen: they have been blurred out because you're on cbs. >> ah! they're great kids. i mean they're so on, beadient. ( laughter ) they're so on, beadient. no, we had a really wonderful
back. >> stephen: you will live in the tee pea again. >> that's right. >> stephen: thanks for being here. listen on, the off chance jill stein is not elected president on tuesday, will you come back and talk to us again about whoever you're going to vote for the next time? >> you're not running this time. i know you ran -- >> you could write me in if you want to. >> if trump wins, would you consider be secretary of state? i mean -- >> if trump wins, i'm moving to wherever you're going. ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> stephen: "captain fantastic" is now out on dvd and on demand. we'll be right back with patton oswalt. stick around. simulation initiated. ?
laxy with a car that could stop for you. simulation complete. the new nissan rogue. rogue one: a star wars story. in theaters december 16th. (cheering on tv) you may write me down in history, with your bitter, twisted lies. you may trod me in the very dirt, but still like dust, i rise. you can shoot me with your words... you can cut me with your lies... ill, like air... we rise. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters, okay? and you can tell
them to go f**? themselves. you know you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes,
he's going like 'i don't remember.' ? this is the story of fall's biggest fan. autumn was born on the
first day of fall. and from an early age she learned to love the season. leaf piles and pumpkin pies. hot apple cider and cozy sweaters. which brings us to the very moment she fell for fall all over again.
welcome back, folks. my next guest tonight is a very funny guy who recently won an emmy award for his standup special, "talking for clapping." he performed last night at the new york comedy festival. ladies and gentlemen, please welcome patton oswalt! ? ? ? ( applause ) >> oh, hi. >> stephen: thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> stephen: how are you doing? >> aaahh... i'm okay. you know, it's-- it's it's weird. doing-- like, me sitting here now talking to you, this part very easy. and then, also, staying home curled up in the fetal position and not leaving for days, super easy. ( laughter ). >> stephen: there might be a
months ago you lost your wife michelle. >> yes, yes. >> stephen: for the people who don't know that, now you are-- you've been very public about it, about your grief, in ways that i think has been very appreciated by people who have experienced grief because there are a lot of times people don't talk about it, and they don't want to hear it sometimes because they feel almost like it's contagious. it's so terrible for people to contemplate, but you sharing with other people i think has been a beautiful gift for so other people are not alone. so thank you for that. >> i mean, it's a-- ( applause ) thank you. i think-- i think it's a way for me to-- when you said, "it feels contagious. it feels like you've summoned this virus and you've become this avatar of loss, to kind of desummon it, the more you talk openly about what it is and put
okay, that is horrible, but there's life on either side of it, and it's somehow manageable." i've heard from people that have gone through unbelievable-- like loss that i can't even wrap my head around in the depths of my loss. but you can-- and there are these really long messages that i'll get. and you realize the length of the message is them beginning to talk about it and write about it, and then it just comes pouring out. don't talk about it, then grief really gets to set up and fortify its positions inside of you and begin to immobilize you. but the more you talk, the more you expose it to the air and to the light then, you know, grief doesn't get a chance to organize itself, and then you can maybe move on a little better and a little easier. that's been my experience in these six months. >> stephen: well, how is-- you know, have been away from
>> yeah. >> stephen: how has that been? i must imagine when you first considered coming to do comedy, that's must have been a weird feeling to do. >> it was really-- it was really weird, the process of getting to do the show. again, once i get on stage and start talking, it weirdly becomes okay because the stage was always a safe place for me. it was a safe place that i was used to. but it's the getting in the car and driving and thinking about people are coming into aoo and i'm going to talk-- how dare i talk about this thing. but then in a really weird way, it takes you out of your own head and your own ego to go, well, wait a minute. everyone in that room, each individual person, you're all meeting at this moment of-- you don't know what they've been through that day or in their lives or what they have going on. so if you all meet together at that one-- where you're all denying whatever is bad for just an hour, up in the light of
ridiculous, there's something-- it's weird how both me and the audiences that i've been performing for, we all just kind of rise to the occasion. it's a-- it's a way to make the darkness feel uncomfortable with itself for a little bit. you know? ( applause ) >> stephen: i do know. i do know. >> yeah. >> stephen: yeah. grief cannot be fixed. it can only be experienced. >> no. >> stephen: unless you allow yourself to experience it, it will stay. >> and it can't be and it's the endurance, weirdly enough, that becomes the remedy. does that make a little -- >> i do. >> like a -- >> no, it's the acknowledgment of it. it's like a demon that must be named and then it can go. >> yeah, if you can name it, you can manage it. you can mock it, you can manage it. i'm quoting todd glass right there. but if you can mock it you can manage it. it robs it of its power.
>> oh, yeah. not too crazy about-- if you're being entertained or laughing at what is supposed to be terrifying you, it just takes all of its strength away. >> stephen: you can't laugh and be afraid at the same time is what i like to say. >> yes, exactly. >> stephen: you're not doing this alone. >> unless you're on bath salt s. >> stephen: that is true. >> then you can do both. >> stephen: then your laughter is actually terrifying. >> yes. whoa! should i take bath salts? sorry. >> stephen: or take a bath. one of those two. >> that will be >> stephen: you and your wife michelle have a daughter, alice, who you are raising. >> yes. >> stephen: anda what is that experience like for you? is she helping you? >> oh, she's-- my daughter is helping me immeasurably with this, with the way that we-- when you see someone who in your mind, "oh, she's only seven. i'm the-- i'm the 47-year-old here. i'm the wise one." but you realize when you're-- when they're younger they have so much more resilience than you
and because they're kind of creating the world as they go along, that grief-- let's like grief has been introduced to them in a world that they haven't yet completed. so it's way easier for them to go, "i'm just going to place grief over here because i have all this other cool stuff that i'm still constructing and reforming." to get to see that is a reminder, again, to me, to get out of your own head. kind of reverse your valences and put grief where you want it to be, not where be. and my seven-year-old is showing me how to do that it's pretty incredible. >> stephen: yeah that's a great gift. that's a great gift. >> it is. >> stephen: how do you explain to her who donald trump is? ( laughter ) >> i show her the cantina scene in "star wars." ( laughter ) and then i go, "imagine a creature they had to kick out,
belligerent and too, you know-- he was being-- ( applause ) he was saying-- he was saying-- he was saying racist stuff about gun darks, and they're saying 'we're just trying to have a drink here. please." weirdly, and this is going to sound a little cheesy, you know what's been helping raise my daughter is having hillary to point at on tv, and go, look, there's this person and-- because i know that you're getting-- i can tell her, i know you know, feelings and stuff in your head be, but she's-- not only has she been getting hit with this stuff since he was a teenager, a teenager, she's had people coming after her. but it's all televised and recorded and now, she has to-- she has to prove herself to this person that is-- it isn't even that he's awful. it's that he is-- he is the argument against himself.
( applause ) you know what i'm saying? what's weird is, people that support trump, some of the things they like about trump kind of make sense. but then he negates it. like the thing that they-- like they'll go, "you know what's great about trump? he's anti-p.c., and he just says-- and nothing gets to him." and you've got to go, "stop, look. i understand that that could be a good thing. he is the most p.c. human being on the planet except it's not political correctness. p.c. for him stands for personal comfort. it's all his feelings. if you piss off somebody on the internet or twitter, they'll start a hashtag against you or write an angry essay. he will go, "i will see you in court for saying that thing about my hair! i want money!" his brain, it's-- his brain is-- it's just a desert where things are-- ( laughter ) barely alive. and then there's this giant dark tower, and in neon are the
those words light up, everything in the desert dies, and we have to start over again. that is how his brain works. ( cheers and applause ) literally how his brain work s. >> stephen: four days, four days. >> god, please. >> stephen: patton thank you so much for being here. thank you for sharing your story with us. people need to hear it. patton oswalt will be performing in minnesota on november 11, and in north carolina on december 3. patton oswalt, everybody! we'll be right back with maz jobrani. ? ? ?

( laughter ) yeah, that's the last year we had a good remember that? 1516, we were in the super bowl. but we didn't win. we didn't win. yeah. it's crazy because they've been kicking middle eastern people off of airplanes left and right for doing nothing. did you guys hear about this guy? there was a middle eastern guy on an airplane, he was watching something on his phone, there was gun violence on the phone. the passenger sitting next to him, saw him, saw he was a middle eastern guy, got him kicked off the plane. you have heard of this. it was spirit airlines.
airlines. if you have heard of spirit airlines, work harder so you no longer have to hear about spirit airlines. this poor guy was watching on the phone, there was gun violence. they investigated. it turns out it was a middle eastern guy watching the news. that's why he got kicked-- no one is thinking anything. what did the lady sitting next to the guy think? it was isis looking at last-minute instructional ideas. i'm going to go like this, then i go like that. hold on, don't fly. i'm still skews me, i can borrow your phone. i'm starting to hijack the plane, i cannot see how-- it's craziness. it's a fear of immigrants, right. there's a lot of fear of immigrant. if you watch fox news, you, too, will be afraid of immigrant. i watched a half hour of fox news and i was afraid of immigrant. you watch fox news and you'll say, "oh, my god, the mexicans are going to take our jobs, the muslims will kill us, and i'm going to get eaten by a shark.
