tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  May 1, 2018 11:35pm-12:37am PDT

11:35 pm
tomorrow morning at 4-30. d kenny choi late show with stephen colbert is next. our next newscast is tomorrow morning at 4:30. have a great night. >> israel prime minister netanyahu documenting iran's past nuclear program, and claiming iran remains a nuclear threat, and to go it in english for an audience of one-- president trump. >> well, tonight i'm here to tell you iran lied. big time. let me further break this down for any american president watching. lying equals bad. now, i've been talking for nine seconds. let's stay focused. watch this porn woman on this golf course eating a taco bowl. ( band playing )
11:36 pm
kevin smith and musical guest paramore 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: wooo! hey, how are you? >> stephen: lovely! hey, how are you! wow! oh, my gosh. thank you, thank you for chanting my name. you know what i wanted for my birthday. thank you so much. welcome to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. folks, i don't know about you, but i've got a lot of things i'd ask donald trump, and now i know
11:37 pm
robert mueller does, too. because the succeedin' "new york times" got their hands on all the questions that robert mueller wants to ask president trump. oh, come on! don't print them. if trump sees the questions in advance, he'll cheat! "did i collude with the russians? well, obviously, i... did not." ( laughter ) is that what we're looking for?" apparently, in the beginning of march, mueller's team called trump's lawyers to give them a preview of the questions. the lawyers took notes, and then somehow those notes wound up at "the new york times." trump wants to pin the blame on mueller, but mueller's former assistant says grammatical errors in the document prove that the leaked questions came from the trump white house. the yeah, they weren't quite right. >> jon: they can't spell. ( applause ). >> stephen: there's something-- something about the way-- something about the way the questions were written that seems suspicious. one hint was question five, which said, "is trump be colluder?
11:38 pm
also this melania, please help!" ( laughter ) but trump is furious about this leak. this morning, he tweeted, "so disgraceful that the questions concerning the russian witch hunt were leaked to the media. no questions on collusion. oh, i see... you have a made-up, phony crime-- collusion-- that never existed, and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information. nice!" ( laughter ) did the president just use the word "nice" sarcastically? smart. ( laughter ) but he didn't stop there. he tweeted: yes, sir, it would seem hard, but you make it look easy. ( cheers and applause ) now, i've read the 49 questions
11:39 pm
that mueller has for trump, and they barely scratch the surface of what i want to know. so i'd like to submit some additional questions for mueller to ask the president. ( cheers and applause ) question 50: did you do it? ( laughter ) question 51: but, really, though, did you? question 52: would you rather fight one robert mueller-sized horse or 100 duck-sized robert muellers? and question 53: michael has 130,000 apples, and stormy has zero apples. if michael gives stormy 130,000 apples, why would he do that if you hadn't had sex with her? ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) another guy i'm guessing mueller
11:40 pm
has questions for is trump's personal attorney and man with resting-indicted-face, michael cohen. given everything cohen knows about trump, it's no surprise that the president's supporters are worried he's going to flip. so i was shocked to see this week's front page of the trump-supporting "national enquirer": "trump fixer's secrets and lies!" what? are you telling me someone who works for donald trump lies? that is the most shocking "enquirer" headline since "bear craps in woods, pays taxes, then dies." here's the thing. here's the thing: the "enquirer" is owned by trump supporter and man whose mustache matches the drapes, david pecker. and sources say that pecker would not have allowed the publication of the story without the president's blessing. yes, the "national enquirer" is now an arm of the trump administration. but this isn't the first time a president has used a tabloid to get out of trouble. we all remember the famous weekly world news headline:
11:41 pm
"batboy breaks into watergate hotel. nixon proven innocent." ( laughter ) of course the other big news today is about iran. it's 11 days until trump has to decide if he's pulling out of the nuclear arms deal. so far, trump has been coy about what he's going to do. >> we'll see what happens. i'm not telling you what i'm doing, but a lot of people think they know. >> stephen: "but i'm not one of those people. ( laughter ) because i have no idea what i'm doing. no spoilers, please. don't tell me how the world ends. wait, do i turn out to be thanos?" people-- it's a very popular movie. people on both sides of the issue are trying to sway the president. and yesterday, we heard from israeli prime minister and guy at the home definitely sleeping with your grandma, benjamin netanyahu. netanyahu went on israeli tv--
11:42 pm
yesterday? yesterday. went on israeli tv to talk directly to donald trump and said that iran lied about their nuclear program and israel has proof. >> a few weeks ago, in a great intelligence achievement, israel obtained half a ton of the material inside these vaults. and here's what we got: 55,000 pages, another 55,000 files on 183 cds. >> stephen: that is the worst showcase showdown ever. ( laughter ) come on, bibi, throw in a jet ski or something! but here's the thing: none of this is new information. "most of what netanyahu said was already well known. the nuclear weapons research program he was discussing ended about 15 years ago." oh, so he did a big blockbuster reveal of information from 2003.
11:43 pm
i assume he also blew the lid off of "finding nemo," and the shocking report that "limp bizkit rulez." ( laughter ) -- there are three limp bizkit fans here tonight. and the administration doesn't deny that this is old news, according to white house press secretary and "wonderful woman, is that okay, maggie haberman?" sarah huckabee sanders. yesterday, she said, "these facts are consistent with what the united states has long known: iran has a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program." holy cow! iran has a nuclear weapons program! well, then, definitely get out of the deal. as soon as-- wait, i'm told that the white house has changed the word "has" to "had." oh, that's kind of different, like the difference between "has" chlamydia and "had" chlamydia. ( laughter )
11:44 pm
( applause ) something-- yes. a big difference. something to be careful about when you're typing up your tinder profile. the media has been unearthing a lot of stories that paint a bleak picture of the white house. but trump wants everybody to know that everything in the white house is going just fine. "the white house is running very smoothly, despite phony witch hunts, et cetera. there is great energy and unending stamina, both necessary to get things done." coincidentally, "great energy" and "unending stamina" are the names of the pills dr. ronny was passing out. ( laughter ) code names! allegedly. allegedly. >> jon: watch it, ronnie. >> stephen: and trump has unending stamina. just look at his schedule today. at 11:00 a.m., he had his intelligence briefing. 12:00 p.m., he's giving a trophy
11:45 pm
to a military academy football team. at 1:45 p.m., he's greeting the folks from the southwest airlines flight that had an emergency landing. and he's done around 2:00. it's like dolly parton says: ♪ workin' 11:00 to 2:00 what a way to run a nation ♪ just three things to do then it's basically vacation ♪ write a tweet or two just to add to the confusion ♪ and pray that they don't convict you of collusion ♪ ( cheers and applause ) we've got a great show for you tonight. helen hunt is here. but when we return, another trump doctor bites the dust. stick around.

11:50 pm
( band playing ) ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey, everybody! give it up for jon batiste and stay human, everybody. that's the band! ( cheers and applause ) jon. >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: you know i'm pretted excited about tonight's guest. we have helen hunt, who i'm a huge fan of. >> jon: i'm looking forward to that. good conversation. >> stephen: i'm also excited tomorrow-- is this tomorrow night-- we have stormy daniels' lawyer, michael avenatti is going to be here. yeah. stormy is here tonight. one person clapping. and he's tenacious. he's tenacious. >> jon: yeah, yeah. >> stephen: he's never going to stop. he's never going to stop at all. >> jon: you ready for him? you read ready for him? >> stephen: i'm ready. i have no skill tons in my closet. are you ready for him, jon? >> jon: oh, i'm clean as the board of health, baby ( applause ).
11:51 pm
>> stephen: good, i believe you. i absolutely believe you. >> jon:, you know,. >> stephen: you're a good man. >> jon: that's right. >> stephen: foiks, let's go on with the show. over the last week, we've talked a lot about trump's former nominee to head the v.a., dr. ronny jackson. after allegations that dr. johnson or jackson-- is it johnson or jackson? jackson? he's laeg soon. it doesn't matter how i pronounce his name. dr. jackson-- it's short for johnson-- was passing out bills at the white house, he withdrew from the nomination, and he won't return to his old job as trump's physician. he wants to spend more time with his family, lying about how much they weigh. but there's an obvious candidate ready to step in. trump's long-time personal physician-- hello! and stolen stereo equipment dealer, harold bornstein. bornstein-- bornstein!
11:52 pm
became famous after he wrote a one-page letter vouching for trump's fitness that stated, "if elected, mr. trump, i can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency." i don't think donald trump is even the healthiest individual named donald trump! ( laughter ) after that, bornstein told "the new york times" that trump takes propecia, a drug often prescribed to stimulate hair growth in men. now, taking hair-growth drugs is not something trump should be embarrassed about. he should be angry that they do not work. ( laughter ) ( applause ) now, we all-- we all had fun with the story, and we assumed that trump did, too, until today, when bornstein announced that two days after he talked about the propecia, trump's bodyguard and lawyer raided his office and took the president's medical files. wait-- they muscled their way into trump's doctor's office to steal evidence that donald trump
11:53 pm
is going bald? they know we can see, right? ( laughter ) are they also going to take away wind? ( laughter ) goons took everything, including the original and only copy of trump's charts, including lab reports under trump's name, as well as under the pseudonyms his office used for trump. yes they got the files under all pseudonyms: john barron. david dennison. horny daniels. and bornstein told reporters he didn't understand why trump did it. >> they must have been here for 25 or 30 minutes. it created a lot of chaos. i couldn't believe anybody was making a big deal about a drug that's to grow-- to grow his hair, which seemed to be so important. and it certainly is not a breach of medical trust to tell
11:54 pm
somebody they take propecia to grow their hair. what's the matter with that? >> stephen: "yeah, what's the big deal about revealing somebody's personal medical data? you would think he'd be much more chill, what with all the xanax he's been popping." but perhaps the saddest detail of this story is when trump's thugs saw this photo of bornstein and trump in the waiting room, and they asked him to take it off the wall. damn-- when trump breaks up with a friend, he goes full middle school girl! "i'm taking back that picture of us at six flags. i don't want britney seeing it and thinking i'm a loser like you, okay. we call you pizza face." at her press conference today, sarah huck-a-sanders insisted this wasn't a big deal. but "bornstein said he was not given a form authorizing the release of the records and signed by the president, which is a violation of patient privacy law." telling another reporter: "sweetheart, this is watergate. goodbye!" watergate?
11:55 pm

>> i can't speak to the rest of the world but i know there's one happy person watching the show tonight. my mother texted me and said, "where are you tiger." i said, "i'm about to be on "the colbert' show. and she said make sure they say your name right. it's very easy, because it's kevin smith. a the lot of people call me kevin james. i have fans come up, "kevin james!" >> stephen: that's a compliment. he's "the king of queens." >> did i tell you i had a heart attack. i had a heart attack. >> stephen: i was going to say you're looking fit and trim. but that's because you had a heart attack. don't applaud the heart attack, please. >> you can applaud the heart attack. it was the greatest thing that happened to me. >> stephen: it was in the middle of a stand-up set. >> we were shooting two shows -- >> stephen: and it's called by
12:15 am
the way "silent but deadly." >> which was the name of the show before the heart attack. but after the heart attack i was like, "we gotta keep it now." and "kevin can wait" was taken by the other guy. so i did the show. it was supposed to be an hour, wound up being two hours. and after the show i started feeling unwell, and i chased people out of my dressing room. jason's wife runs our company, and i chased her out. and emily, wait for it, who does my hair, was there as well. >> stephen: she does that. >> you can believe it? she does this part. i was like, "hey, man, can you guys get out? i don't feel that well." when i'm sick i i want to go out into the woods like an animal and die. i laid down on the floor. won't up throwing up. i like to tell the story not because it's juicy but because i didn't know what a heart attack symptom was. i was a child of the 70sand grew up on "sanford and son." i had the sweats, and breathing
12:16 am
heavy -- >> stephen: did you get the classic pain down the arm? >> none of that. none of the things you look for. that's why i like to tell the story. everybody looks for the arm going out. essentially, i sweated more. i sweat when i breathe so that didn't seem like a symptom. at one point, they kept asking me to cancel the next show, and i said, "i just need to lay down." and i felt worse and i said, "maybe we should cancel the show." and they said, we did the." and i said, "don't cancel the show. it will make me look weak." and they said, "you are weak. we called the ambulance." six brawny firemen come in, and four of them were young, so they were look at me like, "is that "silent bob?" and i was sitting there holding up my hands because i thought that would help. i couldn't breathe. they were like, "is silent bob scoring a goal?" and the paramedics came in, they're cute, the bobbsey twins a guy and a girl.
12:17 am
they said, "we're going to take your blood pressure." and the woman with the fishing tackle box said we're gog put these wires on you. and i was sitting in the chair like this, this was 32 pounds ago. i don't like sitting up because if this shirt came off all the rolls come out. and she said, "i have to put the leads on you." and i said, okay. and all of a sudden she yanks up my shirt and i said "whoa!" there are a lot of people in this room including my best friend's wife, and she's never seen my breasts. she said i have to get these wires on. i said i'll reach under it and you can use my nipples as a guide post. and the guy said we're going to take you to the hospital. just to be sure. it's so close. and he said, "you have ever been to the hospital before?" i had visited people. and i said, "to be honest, no." and he said, "you're going to have a good time." he started selling is it. and i got excited.
12:18 am
they have these chairs in ambulances-- i have never been in one. they turn into a bed. it's i transformer. he said we want to you get in this chair. six brawny firemen came and picked me up and they put me in the chair. and it was the most fun i've had in yiers. ( laughter ) because, like, i'm a big person. nobody tries to pick me up. but when you get picked up, it's fun, man. so when they got me in the chair, i was like, "one more time!" but they had no time. so they brought me to the hospital and wheel me into the emergency room. the whole time i'm chill. the guy said, the medic, the paramedic, said, "you're being real calm." that will get you through is w.e your life." and i was like what does that mine. and we got to the e.r., and the dude saves my life. -- i hadn't met him until that point and now i want to marry him. he was like, "how are you?" i said, "i can't catch my breath." and he says, "that's because you're having a massive heart

attack." and i said no. doc, honestly, i just smoked too much weed this morning. that's what this is. >> stephen: did you really think you were too high? >> i honestly thought i was too high. i smoked a bunch of weed and smoked a joint right before the show and got off the stage and i had a heart attack. and i asked my doctor, i hate to ask this question, "i did have a heart attack because of the weed because i smoked a joint before the show." he said, "no, qiept the opposite. that weed saved your life." "do tell, man. what do you mean?" ( cheers and applause ) he goes-- he goes, "that joint--" he said, "you kept calm. they told you you were having a massive heart attack and you remained calm the whole time. so that joint saved your life." and i was like, ei'm putting that on a t-shirt. i'm in the emergency room. and they said, "we're going to send you upstairs to the o.r., because we have to go up through the groin to look at your femoral artery. >> stephen: right away. >> right away.
12:20 am
"i can't take any chances." i was chatting. and he said, "you're very chatty." this dude comes in with a bucket and it has a schaeffer in it and stuff. and he said the doctor needs to go to work and we have to take you to the o.r., and i have to shave your groin. i took my jorts off and left my underwear on. my number one fear, i was terrified of dying, like everybody, that's my number one fear. my second fear right behind that one is people seeing my (bleep). at that point, when you're in the hospital, exponentially increases the chances of both of those things glaepg sure, maybe at the same time. >> exactly! so the guy goes-- he looks at me and goes, "you have to take your underwear off." i said i'm not taking my underwear off. and he said, "i have to shave your groin." i said, "what is the groin to you?" he said it's there. and i said, "i'll pull the underwear over and give you a landing stp and you can get to
12:21 am
work." he said, "i don't have time for this." i said, "they just toild me i am having a heart attack and you make me take my underwear off in front of these people i'll have a second one." the doctor said, "why is he in his underwear." and the guy who just saifd me said, "he won't take them off." i said, "i have body shame issues and my junk is small." he said, "we don't have time for this." and he takes my underwear off of me like we're in a 70s porno. and i said, "you have your will of me." >> stephen: did the music start playing? >> totally. it was hot. i was wearing my jersey, like a hockey jersey, as always. even though they were pumping me full of drugs, i had the presence of mind to tell them a lie. i didn't want to lose all my clothes. i was afraid of being naked. the last time i was fully naked was when i was in an emergency room. he said, "take that shirt off." and i said, you can't, doc. this is my lucky hockey jirsy."
12:22 am
and somebody should have pointed out, "you had a heart attack in this lurky jersey." and he said, "cut it off of him." the man update me-- which sounded dirtier than i meant it. he said you're 100% blocked. 100% occluded. let me tell you, something, you're a comic book guy. i said, year, i like comics. this is while i was on the table. the artery that's blowngd, the l.a.d., they call it a widow maker. in 8% of the cases of 100% blockage, people die. but you're going to be in the 20% because i'm good at what i do. and then he disappeared into my crotch, and he saved my life, man! so-- ( cheers and applause ) thank you. so i just honestly, like, i give him all the credit. , but like, there was a little fight in me because i was at peace. i was actually, like, if this is the end. this is the end.
12:23 am
i had a great life. i wasn't trying to bargain with god or something like that. i'm sure god would be like, "you made dogma. go to hell." for me i laid there and thought about what a great life i had and stuff. the only-- i'll be honest with you it's only reason i struggled, the reason i sat there on the table and did everything he said and willed myself back to life was because i was like, "i have to be on 'colbert' in two months, man." and here i am today. >> stephen: we could not be happier. i'm sorry i didn't have time to get to a question. >> no worry s. >> stephen: but please come again, and i will ask you something. >> stephen: "silent but deadly" premieres may 11 on showtime. kevin smith, everybody! we'll be right back with a performance by paramore. ♪you've got a friend in me
