11:36 pm
( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey! beautiful. >> stephen: hey, everybody! thai, ladies and gentlemen. welcome, welcome, one and all to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. it is-- ( cheers and applause ) you know, i feel the same way about being with you right now. and i don't want to be alone right now, because i got something to say. is listen, if you're on a low-carb diet, you're in luck, because i ain't no way to sugarcoat this. today, justice anthony kennedy
11:37 pm
announced he's retiring from the supreme court. >> audience: boo! >> stephen: i never thought i'd say this, but you're only 81! they say 81 is the new 79. and don't tell me your mind's going, because i read "bush v. gore" and "citizen's united." you never had one. ( laughter ) this is a seismic political event, because kennedy has been the decisive vote in many cases, and his retirement gives trump the opportunity to fundamentally change the course of the supreme court. and i would not trust trump to fundamentally change the dessert course. oh, we are supremely screwed. i look forward to wolf blitzer in 2021: "in the end, this supreme court case will be decided by the swing vote, justice meatloaf." ( laughter ) and this could have-- this could have huge repercussions. think about it: the court that just this week crippled unions, upheld trump's muslim ban, and
11:38 pm
race-based gerrymandering might turn conservative. ( laughter ) now, in a letter to president trump, justice kennedy wrote, "this letter is a respectful and formal notification of my decision, effective july 31 of this year, to end my regular active status as an associate justice of the supreme court." okay "effective july 31." so, enjoy your gay marriages now, because as of august 1, you're back to being roommates. ( laughter ) yeah. and this could happen fast. reportedly, the white house will push for a nomination and confirmation before the midterms. well, of course before the midterms! just like you want to eat all the weed before the cop walks up to the driver's side window. ( laughter ) "quick, get them in the cart! they're coming! get them in the cart!" ( applause ) now, why would he-- why would he want to do it before the midterms? that red wave is coming. trump spoke to reporters about
11:39 pm
it today, and he teased who might get the big job. >> we have, obviously, numerous people. we have a list. we have a very excellent list. i think the list is very outstanding. >> stephen: so, get ready for supreme court justice list. ( laughter ) then again-- then again, i could see trump appointing guiliani, just to keep him off television. ( laughter ) now, you may recall that the republicans got their 5-4 majority on the court because mitch mcconnell refused to let the senate vote on obama's nominee, merrick garland. yes. >> audience: boo! >> stephen: a little late, but yes, like that. that upset a lot of people, but mitch mcconnell is willing to take the high road and forget he ever did it, because here's what he said today: >> it's imperative that the president's nominee be considered fairly. >> stephen: oh, really? ( laughter ) that's like typhoid mary saying,
11:40 pm
"read the sign, guys. all employees must wash hands." ( laughter ) but there was some good legal news yesterday when a "federal judge ordered the trump administration to reunite separated migrant families." ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: yeah, i'll jump in there. yes! that's good. >> jon: as they should. >> stephen: that's good. i applaud this judge for this ruling, but it's a little sad that this is what counts as good news. good news used to be, "we got bin laden." now it's, "we got trump to release the kidnapped children. and there's a chance he might do it!" ( laughter ) the judge did not mince any words in his decision. he called the family separation crisis "a chaotic circumstance of the government's own making." which is also the very worst "lemony snicket" book. ( laughter ) the judge instructed that "nearly all children younger than five be returned to their parents within 14 days and that older children be returned
11:41 pm
within 30 days." yes, so important. five-year-olds have got to be with their parents as quickly as possible, but six-year-olds can take it. come osix-year-olds know how this game is plied. he kidnaps children. the democrats give him his border wall. he respects the playah. i believe that's the way he says it. there's one problem with the judge telling the trump administration to return the children. what? you took them away and you can't even track children? domino's can track my pizza ( cheers and applause ) let's have domino's do it! why not? that would work. here's what we'll do, here's what we'll do: we'll just order all of these kids a large meat lover's, and the parents can find them with their phones.
11:42 pm
i've got a perfect slogan: "you'll get your child back in 30 minutes, or you're free." ( cheers and applause ) meanwhile-- it seems fair! it seems fair. meanwhile, there was a huge upset in the democratic primary last night here in new york. longtime incumbent joe crowley, the fourth-ranking congressional democrat, suffered a stunning defeat at the hands of first-time candidate, democratic socialist alexandria ocasio-cortez ( applause ) who is only 28-years-old. ( cheers ) wow, 28-- jon, jon, how old are you? >> jon: 30. >> stephen: 30. >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: what's holding you back, man? >> jon: see -- >> stephen: you have achieved nothing with your life? >> jon: i know. >> stephen: she's only 28 years old. >> jon: did you see that? >> i just said that. she's 28. when i was 28, i got my first can opener. no one saw this coming. >> jon: i didn't see this. >> stephen: not even
11:43 pm
ocasio-cortez. look at her reaction when she found out that she won. that is the terrified look of eye woman who just found out she will be working in congress. "oh, my god! no! i'll be good!" this is a shocker because crowley, the guy she defeated, he's the chairman of the democratic caucus and was "once seen as a likely replacement for house minority leader nancy pelosi." but crowley was big about it. here he is at his rally, congratulating ocasio-cortez: >> this is for alexandria ocasio-cortez! ♪ in the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway ♪ american dream >> stephen: he saw the results and was like, "midlife crisis, activate!" ( cheers and applause ) he managed to turn his defeat into a viagra commercial.
11:44 pm
( laughter ) but one politician was not quite so gracious: donald trump. he tweeted, "wow! big trump hater congressman joe crowley, who many expected was going to take nancy pelosi's place, just lost his primary election. in other words, he is out! that is a big one that nobody saw happening. perhaps he should have been nicer, and more respectful, to his president!" yes-- no! >> stephen: boo! >> stephen: he's right. queens is big on politeness. that's why on every street corner you hear, "excuse me, sir, i am walking here. ( laughter ) but you may forget about it." and you may have gotten rid of crowley, but i doubt the democratic socialist latina from queens is a huge fan of yours. "i'm so happy that alien has been defeated.
11:45 pm
i look forward to working with congressman predator." ( laughter ) quick programming note: alexandria ocasio-cortez will be my guest tomorrow night. right over there. ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: i'm looking forward to that. >> stephen: i think she's going to bring it. i think she's going to bring it. and trump was in such a celebratory mood last night, he retweeted this cartoon. he's surfing a red wave titled "red wave." subtle. also, pretty weird that trump is celebrating "surfing the red wave," because i've been told by my writer ariel that it's slang for menstruation. isn't that right, ariel? >> yes, stephen. and the metaphor is fitting because i think we can all agree these are heavy days. ( cheers and applause ) and sometimes, sometimes you have to go with the flow.
11:46 pm
as americans, we must synch up! and shed the wall! shed the wall! shed the wall! >> audience: shed the wall! >> stephen: thank you, ariel. words to live by. ariel, everybody. perfect got me. touched me. touched me right here. the other big story coming out of last night's elections is that former massachusetts governor mitt romney won the g.o.p. primary in utah's senate race. that's right, mitt's back, baby! the thrilla who's vanilla! the salt lake beefcake! the stormin' mormon! ( laughter ) he-- he is set to replace-- ( applause ) he's set to replace orrin hatch who, at 84, is one of the oldest members of the senate. meanwhile, mitt romney's just 71, one year younger than donald trump. and from the looks of it, that was a pretty rough year. ( laughter )
11:47 pm
also, also, last night, oklahomans voted in favor of legalizing medical marijuana. ( applause ) that's right. legal weed in oklahoma. well, at least we know now what kind of dust was in that bowl. ( laughter ) now, i believe this is heartening this this divisive time, because oklahoma is a republican stronghold. no it proves once again there is no a red america or a blue america. there's only a green america with a towel under the door. and on the other side of that door? jeff sessions is calling the cops. but if the rest of us can harness this pot-induced political harmony, we can get through anything, even a 20-minute phish guitar solo. so that's why tonight, we salute you, oklahoma.

( laughter ) and then once i quit my job, my strict traditional korean dad was very, very pissed. he always wanted me to be a doctor his whole life, and when i made the decision to quit he was like, "you bring shame to jeong family!" and then after "the hangover," "we are so proud." ( applause ) "of your tiny ding dong." ( laughter ) so when you get "hangover" famous, it kind of changes the asian father from father to freeloader real quick, you know. when i was a kid he was like, "you better get me good grades."
