( laughter ) don't try to cover it up. we can all see it. that looks ripe. ( laur essingnen dointt captaining? ♪ ♪ ( laughter )
>> word of advice, mark your drinking glass with a piece of tape and your name just so there's no mix-ups. ( laughter ) i apologize. i was so distracted by that glowing red moon of alphanius 3 on your face, that i forgot to destroy you! wait! what are you doing! no! damn you, kirk! i have a date tonight! >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, check and unbalanced. plus, stephen welcomes chris hayes and nico parker 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: wow!
wow! please, everybody, have a seat! thank you so much. please, sit, sit, sit! you're very kind, everybody. welcome, one and all to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. you know how-- ( cheers and applause ) you know how we're all worried about the national debt or the deficit-- and i don't know which one of those is which, but you know they're both bad -- kind of like eric and don jr. i'm not sure. ( laughter ) well guess what? you can stop worrying, because last night, president trump tweeted "while the press doesn't like writing about it, nor do i need them to, i donate my yearly presidential salary of $400,000 to different agencies throughout the year. this is to homeland security. if i didn't do it, there would be hell to pay from the fake news media!"
( laughter ) you can't say you don't care if anybody knows about it, and at the same time announce it to the world on twitter. that's like naming a building, "the anonymously donated by the great and charitable donald j. trump hospital." ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: that's humility there. that's humble. >> stephen: to really drive home his great humility, trump included a picture of the check for $100,000, to the department of homeland security. wow. "department of homeland security" has got to be the worst porn star name ever. ( laughter ) ♪ ♪ ( applause ) it's usually $130,000. it's usually $130,000, jon. >> jon: yeah, yeah, typically. >> stephen: once again, trump allowed his check to be sign by
someone named amal kimmily? dual dunny-mimmy? anal summering? oh, yeah, this july, this july. anal summering? pro tip: do not skimp on the sunscreen. trump-- it's france. trump is-- they do that. trump is patting himself on the back for donating money at homeland security, but, in fact, his most recent proposal for wall funding would take "$5 billion from the department of homeland security budget." so, trump's paycheck donation is like robbing a restaurant, then on your way out, throwing a nickel in the tip jar. (as trump) "here you go, here you go. buy yourself something nice, like an alarm system." ( cheers and applause ) okay? ( laughter ) so he gets paid nothing to be
president, and today he earned every penny when he hosted brazilian president and shaved wolfman, jaiair bolsonaro. bolsonaro is often called the "trump of the tropics," which is also what trump will be called when his climate policies turn ohio into a rainforest. ( laughter ) trump and bolsonaro gave a joint press conference where trump took a pot shot at one of bolsonaro's neighbors, venezuelan leader nicolas maduro. you. >> we call on them to end their support of maduro who is nothing more than a cuban puppet. >> he is nothing more than a cuban mus muppet. they call him fidel-mo. trump mostly, for the press conference, he stayed on script for most part, except when he tried and failed at ad libbing.
>> the twilight hour of socialism has arrived in our hemisphere, and hopefully, by the way, it's also arrived, that twilight hour, in our great country, which is doing better than it's ever done economically. ( laughter ) >> stephen: so, i don't... i don't quite have that. i don't know what's going on there. so for socialism, "twilight hour" means it's on the decline, but for america, "twilight hour" i think it's twilight hour in trump's skull. ( laughter ) ( applause ) ( cheers ) ♪ ♪ trump's mouth kept talking: >> i also intend to designate brazil as a major non-nato ally,
or even possibly, if you start thinking about it, maybe a nato ally. i would have to talk to a lot of people. >> stephen: (as trump) "first thing i will ask those lotta people is why isn't brazil in the 'north atlantic treaty organization'? and while i got him on the phone, i'm going to ask why aren't i in the n.a.a.c.p. it's a legitimate question, jon? >> jon: i mean, i don't know about that one. i don't know about that. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: elsewhere in the white house, things are getting awkward for presidential counselor and love child of punch and judy, kellyanne conway. kellyanne's husband, george conway, is an outspoken critic of the president. in the past, he's said that some of trump's reported actions "would unque president, "your stupidity knows
no bounds" and saying that "the administration is like a (bleep) show in a dumpster fire." ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: let it out there, george. >> stephen: which is awkward, because his wife is one of the flaming trash pile's star turd-jugglers. ( laughter ) now, in the last few days, conway has questioned trump's mental health, so today, the president got on twitter and called conway, "a total loser!" (as trump) "anybody who would marry him would have to be a complete moron. okay, read that back to me, kellyanne." ( laughter ) in response, george conway tweeted the diagnostic criteria for narcissistic personality disorder-- ( cheers and applause )
>> jon: oh, george! >> stephen: such as, "a grandiose sense of self-importance, has fantasies of unlimited success, and requires excessive admiration." to which trump replied: (as trump) "george, why did you tweet out that list of my great qualities? you must be back on board! at least that's what voices in my head keep screaming. but not everybody loves twitter as much as the president. take republican congressman and proud graduate of "smiling for beginners," devin nunes ( cheers and applause ) ( laughter ) nunes is suing twitter for
allowing accounts to insult him. what?! that's what twitter is! that's all it does! can you tell the sun not to shine? can you tell the rivers not to flow? can you tell @magaman5000 not to call me the king of the beta male, soy boy cucks after i suggest that "frozen" was in fact a delightful children's movie? if you don't know who devin nunes is, first of all, i envy you. you see, back before the blue wave, nunes used to chair the house intelligence committee, where he came out very hard against intelligence. ( laughter ) he also launched a full-scale attack on the f.b.i., and he pretended, among other things,to exonerating trump, when in fact he got it from white house officials. nunes' lawsuit is swinging for the fences, because for defaming his good name, nunes is suing
twitter for $250 million. now, that sounds like a lot, but they came up with the number using a simple legal formula. you take the value of devin nunes' reputation and you add $250 million. ( cheers and applause ) now, in the lawsuit, nunes claims that twitter is biased against conservatives. oh, come on! twitter is biased against everyone. it's like the mars of the internet: it is inhospitable to human life, and for some reason, elon musk wants to be there. specifically, nunes calls out two parody accounts which he says have repeatedly tweeted and retweeted abusive and hateful content, the first being an account called @devinnunesmom. ( laughter )
>> jon: that's cold! >> stephen: that is cold, jon. that is ice cold. that's embarrassing, seeing a parody account of your mom. but even more embarrassing is seeing how it looks when written out in a formal lawsuit, because the suit says--and i quote-- "in her endless barrage of tweets, devin nunes' mom maliciously attacked every aspect of nunes' character." ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: wow. >> stephen: ouch! that's not the only parody account nunes called out. he also name-checked devin nunes' cow, which has tweeted such gems as "devin's boots are full of manure. he's udderly worthless, and it's pasture time to mooove him to prison." ( laughter ) ( applause ) devastating. trenchant. >> jon: treacherous. >> stephen: that is devastating. the only time you can see jokes
that crushing is every time you finish a popsicle. but here's something devin definitely didn't but definitely should have seen coming: since the lawsuit was filed, @devincow has gone from 1,204 twitter followers as of this taping to 152,000. ( cheers and applause ) wow, wow. >> jon: that's a big old step! >> stephen: wow! devin is like a teacher who interrupted the class to read a note she intersipted. "okay, listen up, kids. someone drew this picture of me with a giant stinky butt. everybody look! show of hands: who here thinks that i have a big stinky butt? well, i don't, and to prove it, i'm going to photoshop (bleep)! who wants to see my butt! who wants to see... ( cheers and applause ) so this lawsuit isn't going
quite as planned. which is why nunes went on hannity last night and said he's baffled at how twitter got away with this. >> how is it possible that i can be attacked relentlessly hundreds of times a day by fake accounts that they claim in their terms of service should not be there? >> stephen: here's the thing: he's wrong. there's nothing in twitter's terms of service that says you can't have a parody account. that's why it ittotally legal that's why it is totally legal for us to make @devinnunesskin. this is a real account, an actual account. ( cheers and applause ) an actual contact. where you can find such announcements as still thin. devin, we look forward to your lawsuit. we've got a great show for you tonight. chris hayes from "chris hayes is still here."

far in. >> stephen: yeah, yeah. it's going to be fun. he's always good to talk to. informed. >> jon: yeah, he's all the way in. >> stephen: he is. he knows. he knows. he has his hid so far up the news, he sneezed a snorkel, he needs a snorkel. you know, jon, i spend so many time mining all the biggest hunks of news coal for you you. but sometimes i like to make a slurry from the little bits of news slag, and discharge it into the superfund site that is my segment: "meanwhile." ( cheers and applause ) the national craze. it's a movement! meanwhile, on the campaign trail yesterday, beto o'rourke held a town hall meeting in detroit, and the internet lost their collective mind. not because of what he said, but because he squatted on the
counter like a youth pastorgett ( laughter ) either beto has a complete disregard for cleanliness, or he's auditioning to be the world's most boring stripper. ( laughter ) meanwhile, "nasa has issued a 'space herpes' warning because the virus reactivates in astronauts," due to "the stress on the body of spaceflight." reached for comment, astronauts said "great, now the whole world knows we have herpes! i was hoping for some made-it-back-to-earth sex. now they know that, shall we say, my capsule is burning up on reentry." >> jon: wow, wow. check the level there. >> stephen: houston... ( applause ) houston, we have a cold sore. meanwhile, in dirty bird news, pigeons with tiny backpacks are gathering climate data now.
so far, the data includes "i think that's a french fry on the sidewalk." and "yes, that was a french fry on the sidewalk." meanwhile, a new home has been found for some geese in kailua, hawaii. some private landowners wanted the geese off their property, but there was a public outcry after "an exterminator had been sent to kill all the ducks and geese on enchanted lake." >> audience: oooo"h"! >> stephen: might be time to reassess your career choices when you're waking up in the morning saying "well, time to kill everything at enchanted lake." it's great that the geese will be relocated, but why did the landowner want them gone so badly? well, i think i found a clue, because the geese's names are "onesie, twosey, peebee, iris and screamer." thanks a lot, screamer! we had a great thing going up at enchanted lake and you had to go-- and he's screaming again. ( laughter )
meanwhile, there's a warning from the c.d.c. after they found that, of the 11 people affected by a recent salmonella outbreak, "10 of them reported contact with a hedgehog." and they're warning owners "don't kiss or snuggle hedgehogs, because this can spread salmonella germs to your face and mouth and make you sick." to say nothing of the false expectations it may raise for the hedgehog about where your relationship is going. hey, you wanted an open relationship. and, yes, i've met someone else. a porcupine with spines you can only dream of. meanwhile, the latest installment of the "fantastic beasts" franchise, "the crimes of grindelwald" is hitting blu-ray, and j.k. rowling dropped a bombshell in the commentary, "revealing that dumbledore and grindelwald had an "incredibly intense" sexual relationship." that's right. dumbledore was a gryffindor in the streets, but a slytherin the sheets. ( laughter )
( cheers and applause ) rowling added, "i'm less interested in the sexual side than i am in the sense of the emotions they felt for each other, though i believe there is a sexual dimension to this relationship." which has fans pumped for the next sequel, "harry potter and the cauldron of too much information." we'll be right back with chris hayes. all in!
folks, my first guest is the emmy award-winning host of "all in with chris hayes" on msnbc. please welcome chris hayes! ♪ ♪ ( applause ) >> stephen: how are you? >> i'm great. >> stephen: how is the news biz treating you? >> it's great. it's busy. it's like getting punched in the face with information all day. >> stephen: it feels so good when they stop. you had a town hall-- was this last night with kristen jillen brand. >> stephen: before we get into the meat and potatoes, nuts and bolts of this interview. why town halls? why not just interview her? you're a professional. >> i am. >> stephen: are you see lazy you want them to ask you questions. should i have them ask the questions instead of me? >> this looks like a funny group
( cheers and applause ) they are, they are >> stephen: you've created a monster. >> for the record, that's town hall-style pandering. gr why do you do the town halls? >> that's a great question. >> stephen: thank you. >> you're welcome. no, i think what ends up happening a lot of times, particularly in campaign and political reporting, there's awe kind of bubble effect that happens between the people that cover campaigns professionally and twitter and read each other's stories and they're thinking about how to make news. >> stephen: oh, okay, okay. >> and i think that gets pretty divergent from what voters want to hear about, which are often meat-and-potato broad questions, "how are you going to bring jobs to michigan." asking a question in an interview, "how are you going to bring jobs to michigan?" it's not the kind of killer interview you do with a candidate but it's what aro the
people they're choosing from. so i think one of the great things about a town hall is you just get different perspectives from it, and you get to see a candidate actually sort of directly address what actual voters care about. >> stephen: one of the things we try to do on the show is talk about basically what people are talking about today. but we can't cover everything. what's the news today that you think we have-- we haven't hit? what do you make of the cohen information? >> so we've got-- we've got -- >> stephen: educate me. >> i'll educate you. i do it for a living. >> stephen: okay. >> so we've got all these files that were basically the files that the justice department filed with the court to get search warrants to surveil essentially every aspect of michael cohen's digital life, and we learned a few really interesting things. >> stephen: was this the let us in and let us see what's in his office? >> no, interestingly, it was way before that. this was two months before the president-- two months after the sprt inaugurated, they're already checking out his search history and cookies and email. they're all up in his business very early on.
>> stephen: so why go on? what's in the thing? >> well, we don't know-- the thing is, we don't know what was produced by these search warrants. >> stephen: what was the rationale-- >> the rationale-- and this is really interesting. we learned about all the stormy daniels stuff, and afterwards because he was using the same fake company to pay stormy daniels as he was to take these really shady payments from all sorts of people. we learned about that later. it actually worked the other way around. so the f.b.i. first starts sniffing around michael cohen because he is getting payments from a bunch of shady interests, and they believe he is acting in a foreign interest, a foreign agent. >> stephen: take cash from overseas. >> he's getting big payments from this ukrainian oligarch. there's a korean airline that starts paying him. >> stephen: right right, consulting. >> consulting, exactly. they're thinking there's something untoward happening here.
we have probable cause to believe this guy is an unregistered foreign agent and working in an illegal manner as agents of a foreign government or interests dispp they goto the court and get all this permission to essentially look into all parts of his life. >> stephen: we haven't heard about that in the courts, have we? he is not charged with that. >> no, he is not, and that's one of the real interesting mysteries here which is, where did we end up on that? >> stephen: people keep saying the mueller report is going to come out any day, any minute now, this second-- in the middle of this sentence it will come out. >> it might. >> stephen: somebody will come running in with a flaming copy in hir thandz like an olympic torch. >> it would be funny if robert mueller decided to diclose it to you first. ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: don't tell. now you've blown my cover. but do you actually see-- what do you make of the tea leaf reading? >> i don't know, man. i don't know. i do not know. i mean i've gone so far back and
forth reading different tea leaves trying to figure out-- on one level, at a narrative level, it's the suitcase in "pulp fiction" they open it up, the light comes out. you can never know what is in the suitcase. there is a certain narrative mystery around the thing. >> stephen: and yet you know exactly in the suitcase. >> you do. >> stephen: everything about the trump administration and donald trump is exactly what you thought it was. >> that's right. >> stephen: there is no surprises. there were no surprise at any time. >> that's right. expumently i think that what weoon what we know prior to the mueller report is that out in the open, in front of everyone, and sometimes behind closed doors and things like the trump tower meeting, while a foreign government was engaged in a criminal and expensive conspiracy to elect one american candidate over another, the candidate they were helping was doing all kinds of wing-wink, nudge-nudge kind of encouragement to the people that were engaged in the criminal conspiracy. >> stephen: his campaign manager and son said we would love some dirt from you, foreign
country. >> we know all that. that is the way it was happening. there was always this question was diteyon that? was there a smoking gun text to vladimir putin like, "it's on, dude!" ." >> stephen: aren't don jr.'s emails the smoking gun. >> yes. >> stephen: i would love that. it's on. let's meet. we have to take a little bit of a break. please don't go anywhere or you go anywhere. we'll be right back with more chris hayes. just go, just go g! go! choosing my car insurance was the easiest decision ever.
i switched to geico and saved hundreds. that's a win. but it's not the only reason i switched. geico's a company i can trust, with over 75 years of great savings and service. ♪ now that's a win-win. switch to geico. it's a win-win. switch to geico. i thodid the ancestrydna toian. find out i'm only 16% italian. so i went onto ancestry, soon learned that one of our ancestors was eastern european. this is my ancestor who i didn't know about.
hey, where's the food? what kind of meeting is this? there's no food, we just said that so you would show up. what?! no food? there's someone we think you should talk to. hey, dan! your coworkers told me you haven't done your taxes. i just want to say, you can call a turbotax live cpa for help. we'll help you get your refund and get back to your life. you'd really do that for me? yeah, dan. it's literally my job. thanks, guys! so, there's no snacks...nothing? i brought kale. turbotax live now with cpa's on demand.

(vo) go national. go like a pro.
we're back here with chris hayes from msnbc's "all in with chris hayes." chris, let's get all in on this-- devin nunes suing twitter. is this a new one? i have not heard this before. >> it is wild what he's doing. >> stephen: can't we all sue twitter? >> every person i know is like, "look at my mentions, dude. welcome to twitter. people make fun of you." >> stephen: welcome to the octagon. you are going to get your ego ass-kicked. >> at one level it's, you know, it is hilarious and mockable. on another level, it's-- it's-- it's profoundly gross inhe sense that it's not hyperbole by too much to say the country is almost literally founded on mocking political leaders. htlyf the core values of the american
revolution is mocking king gorge, and then, once they get their own democratic republic, mocking people through pamphlet s. >> stephen: and writing in the constitution that that's allowed. >> to use the corts as a weapon to discourage what is obviously protected speech against him is gross. >> stephen: let's talk about the-- ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: that's very subtle pandering. very subtle pandering right there. right there. let's talk about george down way for a second here. >> wooo! that is-- that is messy. >> stephen: we have all been waiting for donald trump to respond to something that george conway said, and now helydi ctlly "lrst. tal los." "a," why do you think it took so long? and, "b" what, do you think of his diagnosis? ( laughter ) >> well, i don't know why it
took so long you. >> stephen: have to stay objective. you're a newsman. >> i'm a newsman. i don't know why it took so long. i'm sort of surprised it is. the diagnose ice. >> stephen: do you know about the relationship. the scuttlebutt in d.c.-- >> kellyanne and george? i think it's most bizarre thing i have seen. i don't know anything about their marriage. i feel if i was in their friend circle i would probably be taking them aside, "are you guys maybe seeing a counselor or is there a situation?" >> stephen: or do you think this is a plan in nsome way, he gets to be, "i play bad cop and you're good cop orp and bad copn which part of the country is listening. and in the wash we are neutral. >> i have heard the theory that it's the ultimate hedge. the household is hedge the bet. kellyanne conway is all in on trump. he's all in on the hashtag
resistance, and, exactly, no matter which way things go, the two of them will be able to sort of skate way wae. if that is true, they are acting at a level of sociopathy that is-- ( laughter ) like past my-- ( applause ) i mean, it's not-- it's maybe true, but it's-- that's, like-- >> stephen: let's talk about our president and white nationalism and white supremacy. >> yeah. >> stephen: it would be so easy for him to say, "white nationalists, bad. white supremacy wrong." >> yup. >> stephen: why do you think he won't say that? >> because he would alienate his supporters. >> stephen: but not all of his supporters are white nationalists or white supremacists. >> of course, not, no. >> stephen: steve king, yes, for sure. >> yeah, but i think he from the beginning of the campaign, when he comow t escalator and says, "mexico is sending rapists" has derived online and in the world a-- a-- a
disproportionate share of energy and committed enthusiasm from a relatively small part of the public that is really, explicitly white nationalist, that really does think about america as a white ethnostate, white homeland that really does view people that are not white as explicit threats to hir way of life. whatever the numerical base of that base, it is a serious part of his base. it's some sliver it that provides some level of energy, and i actually think the president has bigoted views. you know what i mean -- >> stephen: like "these people get me." ( applause ). >> yeah, i think-- i think the president-- i think the president hates and fears muslims. >> stephen: he-- he called for an all-- >> banning all of them. >> stephen: an all-out ban until we can figure out what the hell is going on, he said. >> i guess-- i guess there's always this question with him is how much is this pandering and how much is this what he thinks?
stephen: and how much does that matter? >> and how much does it matter? i don't think it matters much morally. but in terms of getting tower your ye question why does not he not disavow these people. why did he say there are very fine people chanting, "juice will not replace us" is because he views them as some portion of his supporters which is sort of terrifying and ugly. >> stephen: well, before we go, i've got to ask you one more questions. you ask a lot of tough questions. i have a tough question for you. what is this? >> oh, no! >> stephen: play this please, jim. >> nice. >> stephen: that goes on for a while. >> it better go for a while. >> stephen: what the hell is going on there? is that just therapy? what aou doing? >>avn- i have beenbi traing m lm as part of what i call "the war
on dad bod." i just eye just-- i just turned 40, and i got three kids, and i'm just trying to keep it tight. ( laughter ) ( applause ) trying to keep it tight. it's a cutthroat business, stephen. >> stephen: that was the kind of honest answer i expect from a town hall. >> that's right. >> stephen: "all in with chris hayes" airs weeknights on msnbc. that's chris hayes, everybody. he's keeping it tight. we'll be right back with the star of tim burton's "dumbo," nico parker. unpredictable crohn's symptoms following you? for adults with moderately to severely active crohn's disease, stelara® works differently. studies showed relief and remission, with dosing every 8 weeks. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and may increase your risk of infections and cancer. some serious infections require hospitalization.
