11:35 pm
championship. love seeing that. good sportsmanship. >> great one. see you all tomorrow at the parade. captioning sponsored by cbs >> today is the main event when president trump faces off with kim jong un. ♪ >> ladies and gentlemen, tonight, the most historic summit of our lifetime! the dig tore versus the unfaithful hubby. 5-foot 3, the possible world ending, crowd thrilling, uncle killing villain, put your hands together for the un shaped like a balloon, kim jong un! ( cheers and applause ) and in this corner, weighing in at 239 -- the opponent, the
11:36 pm
popular bonus, the cheeshz loving, immigrant loving, finger on the button, the tweeter who's a cheater, the comey firing son-in-law hiring, accusing obama of tapping the wiring, he's the media hater, possible traitor, with fists the side of taters, please welcome the colluder in chief, president donald trump! ( cheers and applause ) and -- he just declared war on canada. >> announcer: it's "the late show" with stephen colbert! tonight, sic singapore. stephen welcomes chris matthews, alicia silverstone, and musical guest eels, featuring jon batiste and "stay human." live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york
11:37 pm
city, it's stephen colbert! ( cheers and applause ) ( theme song playing ) >> stephen: thank you very much! double dipping! welcome one and all! wwelcome one and all to "the lae show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. folks, it is an historic evening because, as we speak, president trump is meeting with north korean dictator kim jong un, a scenario that, just a few years ago, would have been unthinkable because it includes the phrase "president trump." ( laughter ) now, the summit actually started at 9:00 a.m. tuesday morning, singapore time, which is 9:00 p.m. new york time. so they're actually meeting in
11:38 pm
the future, which finally explains both their haircuts. ( laughter ) so -- i don't know what technology is involved there, but it's not human. so tensions are high. the united states is on the precipice of unthinkable international conflict, and that's with canada. ( laughter ) our relations have not been this bad with canada since they stole the word "bacon." canadian bacon is just round ham, you monsters. ( laughter ) now, you -- if you're one of those nerds who values the western alliance that has safeguarded democracy for 70 years, it was a tough weekend for you. becauscanada hosted 7, and it did not go "the good." keep in mind, the g-7 are our trading partners, and right before he attended, donald trump declared protectionist trade tariffs against all of them. it's like showing up to an a.a.
11:39 pm
meeting with captain morgan. the spirit of the entire summit , the tension of the entire weekend can be summed up by this picture. i believe it's entitled: "still life with douchebag." ( laughter ) ( piano riff ) ( cheers and applause ) it's like a toddler who put a gon mouth and they're, like, spit it up! ( laughter ) now, this things always end with a joint communique, an agreement between the nations. trump agreed to sign it, but after he left, justin trudeau said this about imposing tariffs on the u.s.:
11:40 pm
>> i have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something we absolutely will do. because, canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around." >> stephen: i believe him. these are people whose idea of fun is strapping on foot blades and punching each other in the face on a frozen lake. ( laughter ) still, pretty mild. but trump wasn't amused. he unsigned the communique, basically breaking up with nato via tweet. angela merkel called his action "sobering and somewhat depressing." well, i'll join you with depressing, but while trump is president, you're on your own with sober. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) yeah, it's real.
11:41 pm
don't go far with that. ( laughter ) then trump tweeted, "p.m. justin trudeau of canada acted so meek and mild during our at-g-7 meetings only to give a news conference after i left saying that, 'us tariffs were kind of insulting' and he 'will not be pushed around.' very dishonest and weak." wow. he's mad. it's like trudeau stole his girlfriend. oh, wait, he kinda did. ( laughter ) ( audience reacts ) ( piano riff ) ( applause ) now, demolishing our relationship with our closest ally might seem like a bad idea, but trump's top advisers think otherwise. like trump trade adviser and dehydrated tommy lee jones, peter navarro: >> there's a special place in
11:42 pm
hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with president donald j. trump. >> stephen: yes, canadian hell. where bud light is on tap, they never play gordon lightfoot, and you have to choose between ryan reynolds and ryan gosling. torture. ( laughter ) who would i choose? huh? oh! they know which one i'd choose. ( laughter ) so, canada's our enemy now. in fact, according to "the washington post," no u.s. officials have ever spoken this way about any u.s. ally, ever. these are the kind of words that normally precede military action. we're going to war with canada? oh, my god, we're going to have to put alex trebek in a detention center. bet you don't have an answer for that one, do you, you smug bastard! ( laughter ) ( applause ) and what makes this even crazier
11:43 pm
is that while he's slapping around our allies, he's stroking our enemies: >> this used to be the g-8, not the g-7, and something happened awhile ago, where russia is no longer in. i think it would be an asset to have russia back in. >> stephen: something happened? you mean the invasion of crimea, eastern ukraine, and the shooting down of a passenger jet? did you just yada yada over war crimes? can you do that with any atrocity? "who knows how world war i happened? a web of entangling european alliances engineered by otto von bismarck yada, yada, yada-- 'war horse' wins the tony." "it's a happy ending." ( laughter ) and that wasn't the only time he shilled for his kremlin crew: >> they threw russia out, they should let russia come back in because we should have russia at the negotiating table. >> stephen: i understand you want russia at the negotiating table, but don, jr. already
11:44 pm
tried that and got caught. ( laughter ) mr. president, this really looks like russia has something on you. what is it? please tell me it's something more than the pee-pee tape. ( laughter ) because this is western democracy we're talking about. this is the way the world ends: not with a bang, but with a trickle. ( laughter ) ( applause ) allegedly. noet's lea oldld order behind and return to the trump-kim summit, already in progress. it's taking place on singapore's island resort of sentosa, which is home to universal studios singapore. the negotiations are closed to the press, but they have re okay, they're having a good time. we're on the brink of world war wee!
11:45 pm
before they got down to business, trump, had an early birthday celebration with singapore's prime minister. here he is trying to blow the fruit off his cake. ( laughter ) "i don't trust fruit" and "they're a gateway to vegetables." ( laughter ) again, we're taping this before the summit happens. supposedly, they're going to meet one-on-one, or one-on-un ( laughter ) for about 45 minutes, trump doesn't even need that much time to tell if kim is serious about denuclearization. >> how long will it take? i think in the first minute, i'll know. >> how? >> just my touch, my feel, that's what i do. >> stephen: oh, we know that's what you do. ( laughter ) >> jon: oh, my! >> stephen: when you're a star, they let you do it. ( applause ) my touch, my feel --
11:46 pm
of course, kim is playing his cards very close to the chest. in fact, and i'm being told this is true, he's taking the extra pron of br his operson toilet to "deny determined sewer divers insights into the supreme leader's stools." that's right! kim jong-un will literally not give a crap. ( laughter ) so, what the hell is going on trump's foreign policy? well, the atlantic's jeffrey goldberg has been interviewing administration officials to see if they can describe a "trump doctrine." and one senior staffer summed it up as "no friends, no enemies." good news, we're halfway there! ( laughter ) and trump doesn't believe that the u.s. should be part of any alliance at all, and that even though allies "expect a level of loyalty from us, he doesn't believe that this should factor nyay to aiance.n." particularly if he just met a younger, hotter alliance and the old alliance just had a baby.
11:47 pm
( audience reacts ) >> jon: oh, that's cold. >> stephen: that joke, i remind you, is based on a true story. ( laughter ) but perhaps the most succinct summation came from one trump official who said, "the trump doctrine is, 'we're america, bitch.'" ( laughter ) huh, that's weird because it really looks like "we're russia's bitch." ( audience reacts ) we've got a great show for you tonight. chris matthews is here, stick around! ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing )

11:52 pm
>> stephen: jon batiste and "stay human," everybody, right over there, the band! ( cheers and applause ) folks, welcome back. my first guest has been covering politics for over 30 years. let's see if today's news has given him anything to shout about. please welcome, the host of "hardball," chris matthews! ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) >> stephen: good to see you again. >> hi, steve. >> stephen: how are you? as well as anybody is. ( laughter ) >> stephen: what the hell is going on, chris matthews? the g7, the g8, whatever the
11:53 pm
number is, has been going on years. have you ever seen anything like this where the president is adversarial the entire time? >> this is the softball game of the year. you go up and hang around with canada. we don't even have a border with canada. canada is easy, it's a nice country, lake they like us and they have a really pretty prime minister, you know? >> stephen: maybe that's what makes trump suspicious. >> i think he might be the wicked witch and he's snow white and he says, who's the fairest of them all? maybe that guy is. it's strange. canada has always been okay with us. i know they care about their cedar shingles and shakes and lumber and all those issues are likely important with them, but we've always known that, they're tricky about the trade issues and take them seriously. trump should have been told
11:54 pm
that, instead of getting mad at them. the weird thing, is he was elected leader of the free world, and now he's disbanding it. i mean, of all those countries up there, they are the free world. it's the french, the brits, the italians, japanese, canadians, all our friends. we all are democracies, we have regular elections, we pick our leaders, we get rid of them if we don't like them, we have free speech. they're all the good countries of the world, and he's telling them to go to hell, literally! >> stephen: what's the argument, the upside for the united states? >> there isn't any. he wants to make friends with the countries where leaders kill people. the little guy in north korea, the guy who was supposed to be in charge of him, his uncle, he killed them. and then he killed his half brother. remember the airport in malaysia, they painted the poison on him? the guy has killed about 300 people around they know about. look at putin, he kills
11:55 pm
journalists. these are awful people, and he wants to become best friends with them. >> stephen: i can kind of understand north korea, because you butter up some of them to get them to the negotiating table, and if he succeeds, god bless him. if he succeeds in reducing the nuclear threat in north korea -- ( laughter ) no, but you have to think the best and hope the president succeeds in that condition. >> this is not a date. it's not lunch. it's not going to work. >> stephen: maybe he'll take him furniture shopping. >> that's what they do at the fundraisers, they take them up to new hope and look at old furniture. we think about a million things in the united states and a lot of it is important stuff. we are the best country in the world and everybody in the world knows it. when east germany fell, when the berlin wall came down, you know what i found out afterward? i was over there. the last dictator, and he's a bad guy, head of east germany, his number one goal in life was
11:56 pm
to be invited to the white house. even the bad countries in the world know we're the greatest country. the bad guys know. this that's something we have to understand. they all want to be invited to sit down with us because they know we're the greatest country ever and it's a fact, it's a hard thing for cynics to buy, but you don't have to be a good person to recognize this is a great country. and this little guy wants to meet with our guy and sit down together and look like equals. >> stephen: what does the united states get out of this? donald trump goes over there. the objective is denuclearization, with which is a worthy goal, if he can get it, god bless him, just make the world safer. but experts are saying the chance they will give up their nukes are very slim. >> that's all they've got. >> stephen: and yet, kim gets what he wants, which is equal footing with the most powerful man in the world. >> he wants us to get our troops out and he wants the border open for him to do what he wants to do. he wants us to no longer protect japan or south korea and he has
11:57 pm
nuclear weapons. that's the scary thing about. this i'm worried about trump being fold and he comes out and says, let's have end of hostilities between north and south, let's have an official treaty, and trump will say, great headline tomorrow. that give away the justification of having our troops and i think that's what kim jong un wants. >> stephen: if we declare peace --. >> no reason for our troops. >> stephen: we still have troops in germany. >> because they want them there. i don't think south korea wants us there if they due to a deal. i think kim wants a deal that separates us from south korea. that's my prediction. >> stephen: let's talk about russia for a second. >> not a happy scenario. >> stephen: no. but i'm with you, stephen. if it makes the world safer, let's all applaud and move on. i hope we do make the world safer. if they agree to restrain their testing of nuclear weapons, if they agree to restrict their testing of missiles, i mean,
11:58 pm
that would be good. >> stephen: trump wants russia back in the g8. he goes, something happened -- he just glosses over atrocities and he goes let's get them back in there. what is the possible justification for that especially when the head of the intelligence services are saying the russians are still trying to game the 2018 election now. how can that be defended? do you talk to anybody on trump side saying the reason he wants this is x, y, and z? because we don't see the rationale. >> we know russia wants to take away our moral superiority because we have clean elections and a democracy going back to 1879. no other country can match that. the french have had five republics, we have the one we started. with this country is a great role model for democracy. russia wants to take the moral advantage away from us. that's what they wanted to do in 2016, let the whole world see we have a problem with our
11:59 pm
elections and they have that done. now we reward them by putting them back in the g7 and make it the g8 again. trump never says a word against the russian force what they did to our elections. >> stephen: neither to the republicans. >> true. >> stephen: you talk to these people more than i do. what do the people in washington say who defend the president say -- >> they're scared to deaths of him. 86% of republicans support trump. republicans act personally a lot like mike pence. ( laughter ) >> stephen: oh, we have a fantastic clip. >> by the way, i wanted to say -- >> stephen: in case you haven't seen this -- >> i know you like the movie "man for all seasons" about henry ii and the great thomas moore who died for his religion and when henry viii played by robert shaw gets out of his boat, watch how everybody behaves. >> stephen: we pulled this clip. imagine shaw is trump.
12:00 am
( laughter ) >> that's them. >> stephen: yes. that's the republican party. >> stephen: he was a monster. that's them! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: he's described as a monster who none dared gain say. >> these are all like mike pence, that's what he does. >> stephen: trump, pence. bottle down for no reason and right with you, sir. ( laughter ) ( applause ) what does it mean? what does it mean? >> it means we always say
12:01 am
democrats fall in love, republicans fall in line. i get in trouble for this, but republicans are stereotypical. they all play golf and they all read the "wall street journal" and they vote republican. they show up at the movies on time. republicans are a very regimented people. >> stephen: they show up to the movies on time? >> oh, you just know they do. >> stephen: democrats show up late? >> they're the ones that come in with the big cokes and the popcorn. what time did this movie start anyway? pushing their way past you. republicans are on time. one thing i'll say for them. >> stephen: i'm going to need some sociological study to back that up. >> i have the data. >> stephen: tough data on that one? ( laughter ) okay. >> but i think it's sad because -- they're all leaving now, trey gowdy, corker, flake is leaving, and every time they're leaving, they start talking honestly. isn't that weird?
12:02 am
what's the name, speaker ryan is now talking the truth. >> stephen: they recover from the moral amnesia. >> the minute they're leaving, they tell the truth. this is the sad thing about the republican party that is now lacking any guts to say anything against this guy, and i think that they're going to pay for this morally some day because i think john paul sergeant said we don't always do what we want but we're responsible for who we are and they will be held historically responsible for following this guy, and it's a real problem. ( applause ) >> stephen: well, you know, getting back -- getting back to" a man for all seasons ," there's a moment where moore is in jail for not violating his own conscience, because it's a play viabouthe self and what can you bring yourself to do and not to do, and his daughter says oh, just take an oath and don't mean it. these people who stand up for
12:03 am
trump have taken an oath to defend the constitution and moore says when a man takes an oath he will not find himself again if he doesn't finish the oath and that's what i think about the people who follow trump. ( applause ) >> we have to be just as tough on the opposition these days because what nero did the other night -- you have to be careful about this because i think the cultural world, your world, to some extent the democrats, certainly the media, have to uphold what nobility is in this country through these years. >> stephen: and what is that? they have to remind people about what they're not having, a sense of nobility on the planet and a sense of moral goodness. i think trump is lowering us to a standard. it's said in war you end up imitating your enemy in war. you become as ba barbarous as ty are.
12:04 am
the criticism is it's going down to the level of trump. people are starting to talk like him. >> stephen: that's a dangerous path, i agree with you, and i can be guilty of that myself -- ( laughter ) -- i don't know what they're laughing at -- but ultimately, in all your criticism of the man, you have to wish the best for the presidency and that, in instance for this case, h he finds peace. keep your eye on what the prize should be and criticize the man as much as you want. >> we have to remind ourselves we're americans. >> stephen: god bless america, chris matthews. >> thank you. >> stephen: "hardball with chris matthews" airs week nights on msnbc. chris matthews, everybody. when we come back i'll tell you the latest proclamations from a big furry hat. stick around!

well, you're a vegan. >> yeah. >> stephen: true story. this time last year, i became a vegan. >> what?! >> stephen: yeah. that's amazing! >> stephen: well, wait till the end to have the story. >> okay. but you're trying. >> stephen: i did seven months pretty strict. but then at a certain point, there's only so much roasted cauliflower one man can eat and i've fallen off the wagon slightly. how long have you been a vegan? >> i have been doing it -- the first time i became vegetarian is when my brother was on the plane with me making the sounds of the animal i was eating. >> stephen: how old were you? i was 8. >> stephen: what were you eating? >> lamb. on an airplane. >> stephen: which flight? pan am, probably, my mom was a flight attendant. >> stephen: your brother was baa-ing? >> yes. it occurred to me that's what i was eating, then became vegetarian.

12:20 am
donald trump? >> yes. >> stephen: how? ( laughter ) and how long? >> the date, i'm not sure. >> stephen: you went on a date with donald trump? ( laughter ) well, a date to talk about solar panels. >> stephen: okay. but the date it occurred on, i believe, was about 10 years ago or so. >> stephen: okay. his name and number is in my phone still. >> stephen: do you have it? i brought it out. we should call. >> stephen: yes. i'm very tempted to know if the number still works. >> stephen: i bet it does. mine still works. he can reach out if he needs to address this. ( laughter ) but what had happened was i was on one of the other talk shows in the daytime talking about solar panels and silk milk and they were doing this great thing, and he said he was really interested, and we exchanged numbers so that we could continue this conversation about solar panels. so i met with him in -- ( laughter ) right? i know.
