11:35 pm
( band playing intro music ) ( band playing "late show" theme ) >> stephen colbert! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey there, how are you? hey! hey! look at that! whoo! welcome to "the late show." ( cheers and applause ) that's nice. i can use that. thanks so much, everybody. thanks so much for being here. lovely. this is lovely to have an audience with that kind of
11:36 pm
energy on hump day. i really appreciate it. welcome to "the late show." i'm stephen colbert. and i am so glad you're here, i am so glad you're excited. i do need your energy because i don't want to be alone right now. i just heard something-- i want to prep you here. i just heard something shocking. you guys like kraft macaroni and cheese? ( cheers and applause ) of course, you do. you're human beings. of course, you love it. well, brace yourself, because kraft has just announced that they've gone natural. yeah, yeah, yeah. that was my reaction because i first assumed that natural meant they were doing their products in the buff. but, it's even more upsetting than that. when they say "natural," they mean they have now removed all artificial preservatives, flavors and dyes from their classic mac and cheese recipe. ( audience boos ) i don't get it. i don't get it. i was not aware, first of all,
11:37 pm
that a packet of dust was -- ( laughter ) technically a recipe. ( laughter ) here's the deal. kraft claims you can't taste the difference, and they can prove you can't taste the difference because they changed the recipe three months ago and they've now sold 50 million boxes of the new recipe without people noticing. all right. but we're americans. you throw enough salt and butter in there, we'll eat the box without noticing. i'm sorry, no. this is wrong, wrong! this is a serious breach of trust. when i pick up a package of enriched macaroni product and dried milkfat powder, i expect a certain amount of fake ingredients. ( laughter ) but now, instead of artificial coloring, they're using spices like paprika and something called annatto. what the hell is annatto? >> jon: i don't even know. >> stephen: i don't know.
11:38 pm
i want good old-fashioned coloring like yellow number six. i know where yellow number six comes from: right between yellow five and yellow seven, right where it belongs. and here's a tip: if you missed the original recipe, it's simple, just go ahead and make the natural stuff and melt an orange crayon in there. you get the same basic effect. it doesn't congeal as fast. now, we've got a tasty show for you tonight, ladies and gentlemen. ( cheers and applause ) a very tasty show tonight, very tasty. my first guest is hollywood legend sally field. ( cheers and applause ) everybody loves, everybody loves sally field! she's so lovely. then i'll be talking to the star of "the carmichael show," jerrod carmichael, ladies and gentlemen. ( cheers and applause )
11:39 pm
really funny guy. such a nice funny fella. and we'll have a performance by the lovely esperanza spalding. ♪ we all know that's jon batiste and stay human. say hi to the band, everybody. they're about to play music, but before they do, one more thing: a canadian thief has turned himself in after his victim friended him on facebook. apparently, the thief would rather go to jail than look at any more baby photos. >> tonight, stephen welcomes sally field. jerrod carmichael. and a performance by esperanza spalding.
11:40 pm
featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now it's time for "the late show with stephen colbert"! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: thank you, jon, thank you, joe. are you all right? are you all right? what's going on over there? that looks like-- that looks like you're doing a one-man limbo over there. >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: we've got another week and a half before we go on vacation. >> jon: 10 weeks, man. >> stephen: we're 10 weeks into the show. i'm feeling good.
11:41 pm
where are you going on vacation, by the way? >> jon: i go to my house. ( laughter ) >> stephen: so you just go to your house and sort of-- what do you do there, just eat macaroni and cheese? >> jon: yeah! >> stephen: do you eat the macaroni-- does this news upset you the way it upsets me about the macaroni and cheese? >> jon: big time. when i was a kid, i used to eat the mac and cheese. >> stephen: meredith, do you eat the macaroni and cheese? this is meredith, one of my producers, everybody. ( cheers and applause ) >> yeah, i ate a lot as a kid and then in college. but i never had milk. >> stephen: it's the ultimate midnight food, right? >> i never had milk, so i just put the powder right on the -- >> you just put the powder on the noodle with no milk? did you put butter in or anything? >> no, i never had butter, either. >> stephen: why don't you just chop out a few lines of the orange powder and snort it? >> that would be a good idea. >> stephen: the whole macaroni and cheese thing clearly has upset a lot of people, not just me. it's not the only thing that is upsetting me right now.
11:42 pm
every two years, the president gets a physical. i guess the vice president asks for it to make sure the president is still alive. and president obama just had a physical, and we found out this morning from white house doctors-- this is absolutely true-- in the past two years, president obama has grown half an inch. he's 54 years old. that is very late for puberty to kick in. i'm not sure if that's a change i can actually believe in. i'm 51, and my doctor just told me, and this is also true-- i'm 5'11", i've been 5'11" my entire life, and my doctor told me i'm 5'10.5," all right? there goes my modeling career. it's over. i don't understand what's happening here. is obama trying to make himself look bigger to intimidate congress, like how a lizard puffs out its neck frill? "confirm my supreme court nominee!" ( cheers and applause )
11:43 pm
or maybe he's just fudging his height so he can ride the white house rollercoaster. and it doesn't end there. have you heard about hank the ballpark pup, the unofficial mascot of the milwaukee brewers? of course you have. here's what happened. this is hank. in 2014, this little dog here wandered into spring training and was adopted by the brewers. it's natural. isn't that nice? that's lovely. and it's great for the dog because, living with ballplayers is every dog's dream. those guys play catch all the time. and the fans, of course, loved hank. but the next season, 2015, a few of them noticed suspicious changes in hank's appearance.
11:44 pm
his coat was lighter, his ears had changed, and his face had a different shape. it's this kind of careful, meticulous research by brewers fans that once again proves that anything is more interesting than actually watching the game. and one fan was so upset he took to the internet to expose the lies. >> there's a baseball blogger that said hank was replaced with a lookalike. now, his theory is that hank one died in june, and rather than breaking hearts, fans were kept in the dark. >> stephen: that's right. he claims it's a puppy cover-up. the real hank passed away and was secretly replaced with a lookalike. it would explain why most baseball teams use costumed mascots. when the guy inside dies, nobody knows. ( cheers and applause ) though, to be honest, most of those guys are already dead inside. ( cheers and applause )
11:45 pm
now, questions about hank were mounting. so on friday, the chief operating officer of the brewers was actually forced to come forward with an official response. >> this is definitely the original hank, and this is a notarized document from hank's veterinarian. hank's microchip was scanned and found to be the one inserted in april 1, 2014 at lakeside animal hospital. >> stephen: well, there it is. the best way to calm down conspiracy theorists is to tell them you're implanting microchips. ( cheers and applause ) look, i want to reassure nervous brewer fans and anybody out there who is afraid obama was replaced because he's half an inch taller. nobody is secretly replacing anybody, isn't that right, jon? >> yes indeed!
11:46 pm
>> stephen: play us out to commercial, jon! >> whoo, yeah! >> stephen: we'll be right back with sally field. ♪

>> stephen: tonight, the new season premiere is this sunday officially. >> yeah. >> stephen: but what time by the way? >> oh! 9:00. 9:00. >> stephen: did you just pull that one out of your hat? >> exactly. you know exactly what i did. just start watching around 8:30. ( laughter ) eventually, just -- >> stephen: it will get to you. >> you'll see a group of black people. >> stephen: you have a sneak preview. it will already have been on by the time of this broadcast. sort of a preview half hour. >> sneak peek. >> stephen: and it's about cheating. >> yeah. >> stephen: basically, that everybody cheats. >> yeah. >> stephen: do you take a moral stance in this on everybody cheats or are you okay with the moral ambiguity with, yeah, people want what they want? >> i think you could earn it. >> stephen: you could earn what, earning the right to cheat? >> you earn it. you work really, really hard. you work really, really hard. >> stephen: how could you establish that ledger with your wife? i just want to keep track, and once i take the garbage out 10 times--
12:16 am
>> well i'll tell you, i'll tell you, by not being married, number one. that's the easy way for me to do it. i think certain people kind of earn cheating. you work really, really hard-- not that you earn it, but you earn immediate forgiveness. >> stephen: really? >> yeah, like, for instance, bill gates cheats on his wife, right? >> stephen: no, not right, not right. no, he does not. >> sure, but -- >> melinda is lovely. >> she is beautiful and there's no reason to. if he did -- >> if. >> he deserves at most a stern talking to. ( laughter ) >> stephen: why, because he's rich? >> because he's rich, of course. >> stephen: how high of a tax bracket are you in right now? ( laughter ) you really do sound like a trump voter. >> the kind where morals are like blurred. ( cheers and applause ) you guys-- you guys-- you guys clap. there are people here that kind of, you know, you forgive it. you forgive rich people sometimes. >> stephen: well, we like rich people because we aspire to be them, i think.
12:17 am
yeah, that's cool because when i get there i want those rules for me. >> exactly, exactly. and cheating is one of those rules where the line should be-- listen, we shouldn't erase the line. it should be like a wall. ( laughter ) >> stephen: and you just get a ladder and climb right over it. >> you climb over that wall into your mistress' apartment. >> stephen: can mexicans just earn the right to come to the united states if we build a tall enough wall, and if they make the effort to get over it, you go, "okay, you're in?" >> yeah, well, here's the thing. the same way i like guests in my apartment. i like people to be invited. and i'm not-- i wouldn't stop anyone from coming. i would just like to know that you're coming. for instance, i'm here because of slavery, right? >> stephen: no, you're here because i invited you. ( cheers and applause ) >> exactly. exactly. yeah. >> stephen: your family, your family is here because of slavery. >> but even slavery in a sense it's like, you know, it was an invitation. it was an aggressive invitation.
12:18 am
>> stephen: yes. it was one of the toughest unpaid internships ever offered. >> hard invitation, but an invitation. >> stephen: yeah. well how about an invitation to come back. this has been delightful. >> thank you for having me. i'm a huge fan. >> stephen: i'm so thrilled and i can't wait to see the show. and i enjoy your views on immigration. ( laughter ) and i-- and welcome to the tax bracket, my brother. >> thank you very much. thank you very much. >> stephen: season two of "the carmichael show" premieres this sunday at 9:00 on nbc. jerrod carmichael, everybody! we'll be right back.

( applause ) here's what happened. on the democratic side last night, michigan was definitely feeling the bern. ( cheers and applause ) and the bern was not just from the water in flint. bernie sanders stunned the
12:23 am
prognosticators by taking michigan after trailing hillary clinton by 21 points in the latest polls. but hillary clinton took it graciously. here's her official statement after the results came in. >> what's happening! ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: now, on the republican side, donald trump won the primaries in michigan, mississippi, and hawaii, so now aloha means both hello and good- bye, republican party. did y'all catch his victory speech? ( cheers and applause ) i thought you did. ( laughter ) because it was on every single channel. i think even nick jr. was running it because i saw some sort of orange blob on tv. so, hey-- hey! hey, kids!
12:24 am
hi! hey! hi! hey! hey! mexicans are coming to kill us! so here's the deal. last week, mitt romney called donald trump a fraud and a bad businessman because things like "trump" magazine, and trump water, and trump steaks had all failed. so last night, after winning mitt's home state of michigan, trump's victory speech had a little bit of product placement. >> mitt romney got up and made a speech the other day. i brought some things up because he said my water company is gone. i said, "it is? i didn't know that." i have very successful companies. we sell water, and we have water, and it is very successful. we have "trump" magazine. it's called the "jewel of palm beach." it goes to all of my clubs. i've had it for many years, and it's the magazine. you have the wines and all of that. very proud of that. we make the finest wine. it's as good wine as you can get anywhere in the world. and we have trump steaks. >> stephen: that's right.
12:25 am
that's right, trump gave his victory speech next to a pyramid of raw steak. he was either trying to introduce mitt rom or introducing his new running mate, trump, pile of meat, 2016. good luck telling them apart. it was like watching an infomercial. if he's elected, this would make trump the first president with a sicker, "as seen on tv." i think, i think-- if we're honest-- i think i know what's going on here. donald is just insecure. i don't know if trump even wants to be president. the guy just needs constant validation. that's clear. isn't that all any of us want? love? just love and maybe steak? ( laughter ) and if we just give that to him, maybe he'll go away. so mr. trump. ( cheers and applause )
12:26 am
mr. trump-- mr. trump-- mr. trump-- and i know you're watching because i said your name three times. i just want you to know that everyone thinks you're cool. okay, you are smart. you are good at companies and businessing. and no doubt, you're hung like a pool noodle. oh, what's that? oh, what's that? i'm getting a phone call. hello? oh, it's everyone who made fun of donald trump in high school! what's that? you were secretly jealous of him the whole time? and now you're married to far fewer women? okay, i'll tell him. good-bye, real call. ( laughter ) besides, donald, you don't need to run for president, because there's an even cooler, more elite position out there, and we've all voted that you are it. it's america's number one man. and tonight, to make it official, i'm giving you the "number one man" trophy.
