( cheers and applause )
11:37 pm
>> stephen: hey! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: please! thank you! what a lovely crowd. welcome to "the late show," everybody. i'm your host, stephen colbert. america is still reeling from the troubling reminders that omarosa is still out there. ( laughter ) her new book-- do we have is here? "unhinged" dropped today. it's highly anticipated, it's filled with salacious behind-the-scenes details, and it's 30% off. day one. day one. ( laughter ) ( applause ) it's the literary equivalent of day-old sushi. of course, the bombshell everyone is talking about is
11:38 pm
that omarosa claims she heard the tape of donald trump on the set of "celebrity apprentice" saying the "n" word. >> audience: ooooh! >> stephen: i know,in, it's terrible. if this shocking allegation is true, it would undeniably make some of his fans happy. ( laughter ) others would go, "i don't like that he's a racist, but, you know, taxes." ( laughter ) >> jon: wow! >> stephen: last night, trump fired back with a character witness: "celebrity apprentice" producer and paddington human, mark burnett. last night, trump tweeted, "mark burnett called to say that there are no tapes of the 'apprentice' where i used such a terrible and disgusting word." well, that settles it. ( laughter ) a guy called him and told him it's not on tape. ( laughter ) you know what they say, "if a tree falls in the forest and there's no one there to hear it
11:39 pm
say the "n" word, is it racist? but to be fair, he goes on: "i don't have that word in my vocabulary, and never have." "yes, i've taken it out of my vocabulary and hidden it with my taxes. you'll never find it. it's a business expense. it's just--" ( laughter ) ( applause ) and this morning, he laid into omarosa, tweeting: "when you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the white house, i guess it just didn't work out. good work by general kelly for quickly firing that dog!" that is so weird. that is so weird that trump used "dog" as an insult. he should love dogs. you don't have to pay to watch them pee. ( laughter ) ( applause ) -- although, although--aogis kif
11:40 pm
a recurring theme in trump's tweets. he's used the phrase "fired like a dog" in tweets about david gregory, chuck todd, bill maher, and glenn beck. he's pretty excited about dogs getting fired for a man who's afraid of getting impooched. ( laughter ) so that's it. the president categorically denies saying the "n" word and says omarosa is a lying dog for implying he did. and this afternoon at the white house press briefing, sarah hucka-sands came down firmly on the side of... >> i can't guarantee anything. but i can tell you that the president addressed this question directly. i can tell you that i've never
11:41 pm
heard it. >> just to be clear, you can't guarantee it. >> look, i haven't been in every single room. >> stephen: is there a special room where he says it? ( laughter ) please, please, please tell me it's not the lincoln bedroom. but hucka-sands insisted that, despite the fact that the president has had a long string of insults for african americans, this has nothing to do with race. >> this has absolutely nothing to do with race and everything to do with the president calling out someone's lack of integrity. the fact is the president is a equal-opportunity... uhh... person that calls things like he sees it. >> stephen: yes, yes-- no, folks. it has nothing to do with race. he's an equal-opportunity insulter. ( laughter ) it's like martin luther king so famously said, "
11:42 pm
" ( cheers and applause ) people forget that part of the speech. >> jon: i forgot that part. >> stephen: people forget that part, jon. yeah. and omarosa continued her trumpapalooza world tour this ranch when she went on the msnbc to discuss details from her book. and she spilled some tea! >> there is a lot of corruption that went on both in the campaign and in the white house, and i'm going to blow the whistle on all of it. >> stephen: all of it? all of it? be careful, omarosa, you wouldn't want to damage your relationship with the president. he might not hire you four more times. and then she got to the good stuff. >> you were instructed, according to the book, to bring up the emails at every point you could at the end of the 2016 campaign, hillary clinton's emails. >> yes, that was our talker. >> did donald trump know about the emails before they came out? >> absolutely.
11:43 pm
>> he knew about them? >> yes. >> he knew what was coming out before wikileaks released them? >> yes. >> stephen: that is a massive revelation. the emails that russia hacked that wikileaks leaked, donald trump somehow knew before they were actually released. somewhere robert mueller is yelling, "um, how about a spoiler alert?" come on! ( cheers and applause ) but omarosa didn't just accuse the president of being a traitor to his country. she also accused him of being a bad friend. >> he talked about all of the people around him. if you were in the room with him, and you leave the room-- for instance, he would call betsy devos "ditsy devos." when general kelly left the office, he had a nickname for him. anybody that was in his world, because of his small ability to communicate, he would give them
11:44 pm
these derogatory nicknames. >> stephen: yes, he had derogatory nicknames for everybody. some of them were really cruel. i hear he called one guy donald trump jr. ( cheers and applause ) terrible. terrible. sad. you can't take that bad. you can't ever take that back. yesterday, the president told us one of the reasons he's so mad at omarosa, tweeting: "wacky omarosa already has a fully signed non-disclosure agreement!" trump makes everyone who works for him sign n.d.a.s, and and everybody who leaves sign them, too. omarosa says that in order to shut her up, the trump campaign offered her $15,000 a month. yeah, they work it like the lottery: you can m installments or have sex with him for the lump sum. >> stephen: oh! >> jon: oh, nelly! >> stephen: and i do mean "lump."
11:45 pm
( laughter ) and the white house-- the white house n.d.a.s don't just apply to trump. they also apply to "pence or any pence family member." so no one will ever find out about pence's secret shame: the time he lusted after dijonnaise. ( laughter ) now, n.d.a.s don't work at the white house. in fact, the white house lawyer who asks people to sign them makes it clear that the agreements are not ultimately enforceable and are meant only to placate trump. ( cheers and applause ) really? really? so you're telling me this whole time we've been dealing with a placated donald trump? what's un-placated trump? nuking the upper west side and naming surgeon general. filet-o-fish? veart woour sex robot?

( band playing ) ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: jon batiste and stay human, everybody. ( cheers and applause ) folks, i have devoted a surprising amount of time over the years to making fun of the tech world's efforts to develop sex robots. hey, here's a thought: how about scientists use those resources to end hunger, and then just put a wig on your dyson.
11:51 pm
>> it never loses suction. >> stephen: until then, i'll just keep updating you on the sex stuff in my increasingly upsetting segment... ( laughter ) thank you, thank you. that opening graphic has never been more appropriate, never been more appropriate. high-tech advances always happen when someone asks the questions no one has thought to ask, like, "what if the design i make is for something that doesn't work?" and sex machines are no different, because sex robots may soon be able to turn down sexual advances from humans. so you'll soon be able to purchase all the fun of a sexless marriage. "how's it going with my sex robot?" it's going pretty well. we don't have sex, but we do have arguments about what goes in the top rack of the dishwasher. if the bowl is small enough,
11:52 pm
what's the big deal? put the bowl on the top!" but these robots-- >> jon: somebody, somebody. >> stephen: that is the clapping of recognition over there. but these robots can do a lot more than not have sex with you. one prototype has two separate modes: sex mode and family mode, in which it can tell jokes or spout motivational quotes. yet, motivational quotes, because there's nothing hotter than doing it with a robot while she's saying, "you miss 100% of the shots you don't take!" ( laughter ) now, now, the inventor-- ( applause ) the inventor of this new sex robot that's not into sex, dr. sergi santos, wants you to know he's the real deal. maybe a little too badly. >> my name is sergi santos, and, uh, i'm a scientist. i've been doing science over the
11:53 pm
to do sex dolls in the way i i did because i'm a ph"d." >> stephen: the more you say you're a scientist, the less i believe you're a scientist. "yes, i have ph.d. it says i am science man specializing in science from the university of science with a minor in robot boinking." ( laughter ) sergi here, dr. love, he makes sex robots because he has some theories about sexuality. >> women and men have-- view sex in a very different way. >> stephen: yes, that's true. sex nse a can be tied to feelings of vulnerability and being desired. while men will do it with a ripe cantaloupe. ( laughter ) ♪ ♪ by the way-- great way to tell if a cantaloupe is ripe. are you attracted to it? well, then, brunch is served. ( laughter ) ♪ ♪ and, and, and santos got pretty
11:54 pm
handsy while demonstrating samantha's features. >> you can touch samantha in the hands. you can kiss samantha. she likes to be kissed. >> stephen: wow. he kisses like a scientist. ( laughter ) so, the question is, why make a sex robot that can refuse sex? >> that's the point. it's a bit of a game. so it's not just i want it, i have it. when we have something every time we want it, we actually don't like it so much. >> stephen: doctor, you don't need a robot. many women would be happy to refuse to have sex with you. and he's-- ( cheers and applause ) and he's right. if an appliance gives you whatwu get sick of it. that's what i don't like about my espresso machine. whenever i ask it for coffee, it

12:03 am
now that we're in first place you don't have to hate the yankees. no disrespect. the yankees have 27 championships. nothing to worry about. you're still going to make the wild card. relax, guys. they have the second-best record in the league, and these guys are still complaining. >> stephen: speak of casting. you cast your mom in the reality show "wall burgers" right here. here's some of the past. there's you. there's your brother, paul, there's your mom, alma. there's your brother, donny. which of the wahlbergs get the biggest trailer? >> there is no trailer on this particular show, but my mother is the only one who gets a pay increase with every season. and she should. bit you know what? she didn't want to do the show. her and my brother paul were like, "absolutely not." they thought we were going to do crazy, negative, we fight all do build the business, which it has done because we have 27 stores open -- >> stephen: 27?
12:04 am
>> we will open another 10 this year. if i tell her, "i don't think we're going to do another season," it's like dead silence. and then it's like, what, am i going to do? where am i going to get money?" i'm like, "you're another mom." it's actually given her a lot of joy, and now she's famous on her own, so she's not living in my brother's shadow anymore. >> stephen: she doesn't need you anymore. >> no. >> stephen: she's going to cut you guys loose. >> she's put me in my place many a time. >> stephen: has she put you in your place recently? >> not too recently. but worst and most embarrassing, she doesn't fly anymore, but i brought her to california, and she wanted to leave early. they drive home, and the limo driver gets lost for, like, 5 minutes. and i walk in the door and she's like who ( bleep )? who do you (bleep) think you are? you're not a movie star. i said what happened?

i'll get you guys a car. >> stephen: it's a deal. >> that's why i'm in the car business. >> stephen: i want to go back to one of the things you just said right there, because a hell of a salesman job-- you said "at participating wahlbergers." are you telling me that there are some wall burgers-- and you being mark wahlberg-- that are not willing to participate in this promotion from mark wahlberg's chevy dealership in columbus, ohio? >> i would say that it's definitely a limited offer. ( laughter ) limited time. so i have to figure out -- >> stephen: uh-huh, uh-huh. >> you better get it by tomorrow. >> stephen: okay, all right. well, you're going to do fine at that dealership. you're going to do real fine.

( applause ) it means-- it means-- it means, stephen, it means that we end the international disgrace of the united states being the only major country on earth not to guarantee health care to all people as a right while we end up spending twice as much per
12:18 am
capita on health care as any other major nation. ( applause ) it-- it means that we understand that the future of this country are our young people, and that it is insane that hundreds of thousands of bright young kids cannot afford to go to college because of the income of their families, and many others are leaving school deeply in debt, and we're going to make public colleges and universities tuition free. ( cheers and applause ) and it-- and it means that its global citizens, people understand we have a moral obligation to leave a healthy planet to our children and grandchildren. we're going to stand up to trump, and we're going to transform our energy system in this country away from fossil fuel to energy efficiency, and sustainable energys. that's what it means. ( applause )
12:19 am
>> stephen: okay, so, other people, other people have espoused those ideas without calling themselves socialists. ever since the new deal and certainly since the great society, the democratic party has been associated with the social safety net and essentially been socialism curious. ( laughter ) but why do you need to call yourself stoacialist, because that has such-- that's freighted with so much negativity in the united states. >> i'll tell you why. >> stephen: i'm just saying that, people are very excited about orcarsio-orcez, i've had her in the se but theople she did notriries. ly half the people you have campaigned for have won their primaries. maybe there's a taint of socialism that turns people off. >> i don't think so. i think the ideas we have been talking about, almost without exception, stephen, are now ideas that are mainstream ideas

that are supported by the vast majority of american people. and i think, also, people in their gut understand that we're living in a really strange moment in american history, above and beyond donald trump-- which is very strange. ( laughter ). >> stephen: what is stranger than donald trump? what is stranger-- >> this is what might be-- ( laughter ) might be stranger is that we're looking at a time where we have an out-of-control capitalism, where the greed of the people on top is really unbelievable. i mean-- ( applause ) right now, right now, in america, you've got three people who own more wealth than the bottom 50% of the american people. you've got the one-tenth of 1% owning more wealth than the bottom. you have one guy, jeff basisos, of amazon, his wealth is increasing every single day by $250 million a day, but he pays
12:21 am
his workers-- many of his workers-- wages that are so low that many of them are on food stamps or medicaid. you've got a situation today where the big-money interests can now contribute hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars into elections soelect candidates who represent the wealthewealthet and powerful, wh surnd mining american democracy. and i think people are sick and tired of the greed and the power of a handful of people on top. they want a government which represents all of us, not just the 1%. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: well, who do you-- ( cheers and applause ) i think-- i think all that is well taken. who do you blame? do you cratdo a better job of sn big money and corporations and
12:22 am
the excesses of late-stage capitalism, as many people call it? or do you blame the republicans totally for this? >> well, i think what we vanow is a republican party which in the last 30 years has moved very, very far to the right. you have the koch brothers, one of the wealthiest families in this party what's ideology is the ideology of the republican party and trump. you have a president, in donald trump, who campaign-- it's not forget-- told the american people he would not cut social security, medicare, and medicaid. and then because he believes in this trump edology, he brought a budget forward which called for a $1 trillion cuts in medicaid. he called for $500 billion in medicare, and $60 billion in the social security disability fund. this is after he gave $1 trillion in tax breaks to the top 1% over a 10-year period. >> stephen: but the democrats
12:23 am
are also seem beholden to big money, too. >> absolutely. >> stephen: it's not like they turn down the checks. >> you're absolutely right. and i think that what i have been trying to do, what alexandria is trying to do, is to transform the democratic party so that they open their doors to young people and working people and becoming a party of ordinary americans, not just big-money interest. and that's something i have been working on really hard. ( applause ) >> stephen: if things are. >> -- >> and let me just-- let me just say, stephen, all over this country what we are seeing is something extraordinary. we're seeing a lot of people for the first time, often women, people of color, young people-- running for office from school board-- or in the case of alexandria, to the u.s. congress. and not all of them, but many of them are actually winning. >> stephen: we have to take a little break, but we'll be right back with more senator bernie sanders. ♪ ♪ ( applause )

( applause ). >> stephen: hey, everybody. welcome back to "the late show." we're talking here with senator bernie sanders of vermont. now, okay, senator sanders, let me ask you this. if things are as bad as you say in terms of income inequality, and the nonresponsiveness of our elected leaders -- and i believe that you're right-- where's the revolution? and how, if it ever comes, will it come? because, you know, as-- i quote, you know, maybe too much that kennedy saying about those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable. what is our chance at avoiding cha will eventually become a clash of monied interest against the forgotten? >> well, i think we are seeing, if you just look at what's been going on over the last couple of years. number one, as i mentioned, more and more people, i think, are adopting a progressive ideology. number two -- >> stephen: but that's not reflected in the number of people who are controlling state
12:32 am
houses, the number of governors that are elected. that-- that-- that conversation is being had on a national level-- and i understand the democrats actually get more votes in the ger mandering-- >> a very important issue. >> stephen: short of shifts the control of congress. but the democrats must not have been putting out this message if people agree with it because they've lost 1,000 offices. >> not voanl they lost 1,000 legislative seats, they have essentially abdicated, conceded, half the states in america, including some of the poorest states. and that's exactly why a couple of weeks ago alexandria and i went to kansas, because we think in kansas you have a lot of people who are sick and tired of the status quo and want to see different policies. and i am working hard all over this country, along with many others, to tell the democratic party they just can't be a party of the east coast and the west coast. they've got to be a party of every state in this country. it's not easy.
