tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  November 29, 2019 11:35pm-12:37am PST

11:35 pm
captioning sponsored by cbs >> for weeks, the impeachment inquiry into president donald trump has been happening almost entirely behind closed doors. that is all about to change. the impeachment inquiry will soon be coming to television, with one house democrat even saying, "do it in prime time so that the majority of americans can be home watching it." >> this fall on cbs: "impeachment primetime." first, president trump asks for a favor from the ukraine. now he and his personal lawyer are digging for biden dirt-- on waikiki. "hawaii quid-pro-quo." ( laughter ) then, follow the hilarious exploits of a group of g.o.p. congressmen as they squirm through various closed doors for
11:36 pm
no apparent reason: "the big barge theory." ( laughter ) then, one is a seasoned tough- as-nails investigator. the other is adam schiff. together, with one other guy, they are "pelosi, schiff and macgyver." ( laughter ) finally, a sitcom about a president raising his two half- witted sons while violating the constitution. "two and a half brains." ( laughter and applause ) it's all happening right here on cbs-- and local ukranian affiliates. >> announcer: it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight: ukraine wreck. plus, stephen welcomes: jennifer aniston. and thomas middleditch. 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: come on!
11:37 pm
hey! how are you? how are you? ( cheers and applause ) perfect! hey! thanks, everybody. delightful. thank you much. please, have a seat. you're too kind. thank you very much. welcome, one and all to "the late show." i am your host, stephen colbert. regardless-- folks, regardless of the endless roadblocks, the president and his axis of allies are trying to throw in front of it, the impeachment inquiry keeps moving forward. and the republicans keep sinking lower. they hit rock bottom a while ago, but in the last 24 hours, they've gotten out the blasting caps, and they are fracking america's moral bedrock. ( laughter ) i'll tell you all about it in tonight's installment of "don and the giant impeach." ( cheers and applause ) >> the impeachment of your president is a scam. >> stephen: trump-- trump has constantly complained that all
11:38 pm
the evidence about his ukrainian phone call was hearsay. but today, the house heard testimony from a firsthand witness: director of european affairs at the national security council, and "military john hodgman," colonel alexander vindman. ( laughter ) now, during trump's ukrainian phone call, vindman was listening in from the situation room, so it wasn't hearsay. vindman could actually hear the bad stuff trump say. ( laughter ) vindman explained, "i listened in on the call in the situation room with colleagues from the n.s.c. and the office of the vice president. as the transcript is in the public record, we are all aware of what was said." yes, we all are. ukraine said they were ready for more military aid. then trump said, "i want you to do us a favor, though," and then asked for dirt on the bidens and the d.n.c. pretty bald. it's like if "the sixth sense" were called "bruce willis
11:39 pm
doesn't know he's dead." ( laughter ) >> jon: spoiler alert there. >> stephen: spoiler alert. ( laughter ) >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: now, vindman's testimony directly contradicts that of ambassador to the e.u. and "jean-douche picard," gordon sondland. ( laughter ) ambassador sondland told house investigators that no one had raised concerns about the president's actions. yes, vindman did not raise concerns. all he did was "convey certain concerns," "share his concerns," "reported his concerns," and "again reported his concerns." ( laughter ) it's a classic case of "he said, he said, he said, he said." ( laughter ) vindman complained at least-- twice? twice, to the national security council lawyer. once, he even went in person to speak with him, accompanied by his identical twin brother, yevgeny, who is a lawyer on the national security council. wait the wha?!
11:40 pm
he has a twin brother who also serves on the n.s.c.? let's check him out. aww! it's so cute when twins dress alike. ( laughter ) their dramatic story is chronicled in the new kid's movie, "the president trap." ( laughter ) vindman's record is sterling. according to his opening statement, "for more than two decades, it has been my honor to serve as an officer in the united states army. i served multiple overseas tours in iraq. i was wounded in an i.e.d. attack and awarded the purple heart. the privilege of serving my country is not only rooted in my military service but also in my personal history. i sit here as a lieutenant colonel in the united states army, an immigrant." wow, that last part-- ( cheers and applause ) crazy. that last part must have come as a huge shock to donald trump. ( as trump ) "what do you mean, he's an immigrant? ( laughter ) i didn't know those came in white!
11:41 pm
you know what, he must be-- ( audience boos ) you know what? it must be some sort of "man- lania.'" ( laughter ) now, i think it's fair to say that, unlike donald trump, vindman's character is unimpeachable. but that didn't stop all the president's toadies from questioning his loyalty. >> he is from the soviet union. he emigrated here and has an affinity to the ukranian people. >> mr. vindman, he's an adviser to the president. um, he is a former ukrainian. >> he has an affinity, i think, for the ukraine. he speaks ukrainian. he came from the country. >> i'm of irish descent. i still love the irish. um, and he has an affinity probably for his homeland. >> stephen: yes, my family are all from ireland, too. i've always had a great affinity for the irish, until i found out this ass--( bleep ) was one. i wonder... i wonder-- ( applause )
11:42 pm
i wonder if the scots will take me. today's hearings were secret, but pretty soon, we're going to know everything, because last night speaker nancy pelosi sent a letter to house democrats announcing that the house will vote to formalize the procedures in the ongoing impeachment inquiry of president trump. she even sent out postcards: "save the date, and our democracy." ( laughter ) pelosi-- ( cheers and applause ) i don't know what to wear. i don't know what to wear, jon! >> jon: oh, man! you got to find something! >> stephen: pelosi insists that no formal vote is necessary to impeach a president, but says that trump and his supporters "argue that, because the house has not taken a vote, they may simply pretend the impeachment inquiry does not exist." yes, trump's strategy on a lot of things is just to pretend it doesn't exist. uh, the popular vote, the constitution, salad. ( laughter ) eric. ( laughter )
11:43 pm
now, pelosi promises that the resolution creates hearings that are open to the american people. that means live televised hearings. it's going be the highest ratings for c-span since watergate, when congress heard testimony from the fonz. ( laughter ) "mr. fonzarelli, do you wear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?" ( as fonz ) "ayyyyyy! ( laughter ) ( applause ) whoa. ayyyyyy." trump reacted on twitter to the looming impeachment vote: "nervous nancy pelosi is doing everything possible to destroy the republican party. our polls show that it is going to be just the oppidite." ( laughter ) yes. ( cheers and applause ) the oppidite. the oppidite, my friends. well, mr. president, you are clearly the oppidite of
11:44 pm
innocent, and will likely be imbeefed. ( laughter ) the vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry will be held on thursday, and that very night, my guest will be nancy pelosi. ( cheers and applause ) yes. boom! come on! fancy nancy. that night, that night, of course, is also halloween. so we're calling it "nancy pe-ghosty's haunted house scream-peachment sin-quiry into the president's quid pro crow with boo-kraine!" ( cheers and applause ) we should call it that. we should really call it that. vindman is not the only veteran coming forward with harrowing stories from the white house, because we just got some new dish from former white house chief of staff and man embodying
11:45 pm
the phrase "what the hell?" general john kelly. ( laughter ) kelly left the white house in january of... i'm going to guess 1852. ( laughter ) at an event, just last weekend? last weekend, he revealed a warning he gave trump while he was looking for a new chief of staff. >> we were still in the process of trying to find someone to take my place. i said, "whatever you do, don't- - don't hire a 'yes man,' someone that's going to tell you-- won't tell you the truth. don't do that. because if you do, i believe you will be impeached." >> stephen: yes, john kelly has psychic powers. ( laughter ) he can foretell the obvious. he's nostra-dumbass. ( laughter ) trump responded to kelly's criticism in a statement saying, "john kelly never said that. he never said anything like that.
11:46 pm
if he would have said that, i would have thrown him out of the office. he just wants to come back into the action like everybody else does." oh, yeah. oh, yeah. kelly just misses the action! i mean, just look at how much fun! he! had! ( laughter ) trump wasn't the only one-- ( cheers and applause ) yeah, like gum in my mouth. of all the nights. trump wasn't the only one who had harsh words for kelly. so did white house press secretary and stepford spokesman, stephanie grisham, who said, "i worked with john kelly, and he was totally unequipped to handle the genius of our great president." >> audience: boo! >> stephen: yeah, yeah. that was a slow build. ( laughter ) now, sounds like trump's buddy, kim jong-un, has really rubbed off on him. matter of fact, north korea's news leader has also been reporting this story.
11:47 pm
( laughter ) >> stephen: that's a good deal. they've got great deals going on. ( applause ) fantastic deals going on. now, last night, the president and the first lady hosted their third halloween at the white house. it's kind of cute. in keeping with tradition, trump welcomed children of military families, as well as local elementary school students, for trick-or-treating. what a spooky experience for
11:48 pm
those children! ( as kid ) "it's that big, creepy house on the end of the block. they say the old man who lives there wears hair made from dead people!" ( laughter ) so-- "he looks like he's wearing somebody else's skin!" ( laughter ) to kick things off, the president and the first lady walked out to "the addams family" theme song. take a look. ( "addams family" theme plays ) that's nice. that's nice. also makes sense. the trumps are creepy, kooky, and have their own uncle fester. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) we've got a great show for you tonight. jennifer aniston is here. but when we return, "meanwhile!" the deals keep coming at petsmart

folks, you know i spend a lot of time over there, knitting the fine mongolian wool of the big news stories into the luxurious cashmere scarf that is my monologue. but sometimes i like to swing by jo-ann's, grab a fistful of felt, some pipe cleaners, macaroni, and glitter and glue, and toss back an entire box of wine, and slap together the confusing holiday sweater of news that is my segment: "meanwhile!" ( cheers and applause ) there it is. meanwhile, according to new research, "implanting false memories in a bird's brain changes its tune." okay. ( laughter ) what are we doing? honestly, at long last, have we no decency? i look forward to these same scientists giving us headlines like "koalas make brand-new facial expressions when you threaten their children in front

of them," and "if you hook up a car battery to a rainbow's nipples, it turns all red." yes. rainbows have nipples. some day, they found the rainbow connection. really? that's where you draw the line? at the idea of rainbows having nipples? shame on you! ( laughter ) meanwhile, it's halloween, which means, just for tonight, "meanwhile" is dressing up as "halloween-while." ( spooky music ) halloween-while, in spooky fast- food news, burger king is selling a "ghost whopper" for halloween, because, as we know, the spirits of murdered whoppers never rest. halloween-while, in other scary food news: taco bell. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause )
11:57 pm
oh. oh, there's more? okay. "taco bell has recalled 2.3 million pounds of beef for containing metal shavings." yes, they discovered the metal shavings the first time a sober person ate taco bell. ( laughter ) ( applause ) halloween-while, a giant pumpkin weighing 2,175 pounds has set a california record and was grown by leonardo urena of napa, who says he enjoys the pumpkin- growing community. or, as they call it, "the lifestyle."

condition." and i was like... "tell it to me straight, doc!" jeez! and eventually, yeah, we figure out that, you know, okay, let's do some veneers on my top two front teeth. >> stephen: those are applications-- the appliques that go on the front of your teeth, right? >> you be, it wasn't fully explained to me. in hindsight i know what they are now, but going into it, i just assumed they kind of shape it and put some caps on. oh, they shape it. they shape it down to, like, triangles. if you have never had veneers, a cautionary tale. i mean, they look great. they look great right now. super proud of them. >> stephen: they look beautiful and real.

12:35 am
there's my career... my cause... and creating my dream home. i'm a work in progress. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. prescription dovato is for adults who are starting hiv-1 treatment and who aren't resistant to either of the medicines dolutegravir or lamivudine. dovato has 2 medicines in 1 pill to help you reach and then stay undetectable. so your hiv can be controlled with fewer medicines while taking dovato. you can take dovato anytime of day with food or without. don't take dovato if you're allergic to any of its ingredients or if you take dofetilide. if you have hepatitis b, it can change during treatment with dovato and become harder to treat. your hepatitis b may get worse or become life-threatening if you stop taking dovato. so do not stop dovato without talking to your doctor. serious side effects can occur, including allergic reactions,
12:36 am
liver problems, and liver failure. life-threatening side effects include lactic acid buildup and severe liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop taking dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis b or c. don't use dovato if you plan to become pregnant or during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy since one of its ingredients may harm your unborn baby. your doctor should do a pregnancy test before starting dovato. use effective birth control while taking dovato. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, nausea, trouble sleeping, and tiredness. so much goes into who i am and hope to be. ask your doctor if starting hiv treatment with dovato is right for you.
