11:37 pm
ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! >> stephen: thank you, ladies and gentlemen! thank you very much! hey, everybody! what's going on? hey, what's up? thanks everybody. welcome to the "late show." thanks so much. nice to be here. oh, my gosh. these are lovely people to spend time with every night. thank you so much for being here, everybody. welcome to the "late show." i'm stephen colbert, your host. it is another beautiful day in the trumpy hood. another beautiful day for him to show you his wood. allegedly. there is continuing fallout an
11:38 pm
big-mouth billy bush. did you know-- trivia question-- did you know there is someone else running for president? hillary clinton. it's true, you can look it. every day, we get another revelation about clinton from wikileaks. any more, and we're going to need wiki-depends. can't even tell i'm wearing a pair. the latest-- the latest wiki-wiki-leaky-leaky, is a list of the vice presidents hillary clinton was considering. it was just released. it includes political superstars like minnesota senator amy klobuchar, and secretary of agriculture tom vilsack-- "the vilsack attack." also in this wiki-leak-released list are business leaders like apple c.e.o. tim cook and starbucks c.e.o. howard schultz. but, apparently, hillary decided against schultz because the race
11:39 pm
but there were almost 40 names on the full list, and clinton campaign chair john podesta organized them, apparently, into women, latinos, african americans, and military and business leaders. groups he called "rough food groups." which, of course, can only mean one thing-- john podesta eats people. pr things, too, but that's the first thing i thought of. coincidentally, i just got my hands on donald trump's list of potential v.p.s. it's tom brady, meatloaf, all my kids-- not tiffany-- and a hand-drawn picture of boobs. pretty good. pretty good likeness.
11:40 pm
speaking of rambly old men, last week bob dylan won the nobel prize in literature. ( applause ) yeah. i'm on board. i love it! i love it. this is great for bob, and it finally proved someone can understand what he's saying. there's just one problem-- the nobel academy says they can't find bob dylan to give him his prize. he could be anywhere, but if i were looking for him tonight, i might try the kiva auditorium in albuquerque, new mexico, because that's where he is. grab him during "a hard rain's gonna fall." that's, like, a fifteen-minute song. you guys like dylan? >> jon: yeah, yeah. >> stephen: dylan is amazing. i love his lyrics.
11:41 pm
he does mumble a lot and he likes to change up the instrumentitationave song. i saw him at madison square garden it was, like, i don't know, $200 a ticket or something, and he played alternative tunes, too, like hit songs. and you also can't understand what he's singing, so you don't know what song he's playing at any time of day. like, the entire thing, i hear him say, "hey." is this "tambourine man?" is he doing "tambourine man" right now? i heard a i can't tell. wait, he said, maggie. is that "maggie's farm" or is he covering rod stewart's "maggie may." someone, pass out a glossary! now, the nobel committee says they will celebrate with or without kill an. "if he doesn't want to come, he won't come. it will be a big party in any case." someone just won the nobel passive-aggressive prize. meow! meow! ( applause )
11:42 pm
actually, maybe it's better if he doesn't come. nobody likes the guy at the party who picks up a guitar and starts playing bob dylan songs. ( laughter ) anyway, nobel people, if you really can't find him, just play one of his songs in a commercial. his lawyers will find you. now say hello to some actual tambourine men, jon batiste and stay human. ( cheers and applause ) ? ? ? ( cheers and applause ) ? tambourine man play a song for me ? >> stephen: jon, do you know why i'm excited? you can guess why i'm excited?
11:43 pm
night we will be lifehere in the ed sullivan theater after the presidential debate. show time, baby. there is no time like show time. we're going to do it. >> jon: we're going to get them good. >> stephen: yeah. where were we? thank you, thank you, tambourine man. folks, it's been 11 days since grope-town express, and a lot of people have distanced themselves donald trump, at least one arm's length. but one person is standing by him, his wife and strategic eye shadow reserve, melania trump. ( laughter ) yesterday, melania did interview for both fox news and cnn. she would have gone on msnbc, but steve kornacki gets jealous when another supermodel is on the network. the man is an adonis.
11:44 pm
explained who she really blames for donald trump's behavior. >> they were kind of a boy talk, and he was lead on, like egg on, from the host to say dirty and bad stuff. >> stephen: yes, it was all billy bush's fault. ( laughter ) now i know why they were on a bus. it's easier to throw billy underneath it. ( ( applause ) ( cheers ) so, let me get this straight. melania's defense of donald trump-- the man who wrote "art of the deal--" is that he got outmaneuvered by a guy who has been deemed by the "today show" to be unqualified to watch
11:45 pm
if billy bush can manipulate donald trump, we have it tow keep him away from heavy hitters like mario lopez. who put a picture of steve kornacki up there? just imagine what impact billy will have once trump has the nuclear codes? >> hey, mr. trump, this is me, billy bush. i think it's time to teach finland a lesson. what would you do? >> i would bomb the (bleep) out of 'em. i'd blow up every single inch, >> stephen: gone, finland. ( laughter ) now, these melania interviews were themselves a surprise because we've barely seen her since the republican convention, where she plagiarized michelle obama. but now that she has resurfaced, we at the "late show" want in. so please welcom live via satellite, melania trump. thank you.
11:46 pm
mrs. trump, thank you for joining us. ( laughter ) >> my pleasure, stephen. and i want you to know we are completely alone. there is no one else in the room coaching me. ( laughter ). >> stephen: okay, okay. good to know. now, we haven't seen you much since your speech at the convention. >> yes, that is my choice. they did not send me to live in an undisclosed location. i am a private person, stephen. my life is not a photo op. ( laughter ) >> stephen: so, okay. how are you dealing with the pressure of the campaign? >> stephen, why are we talking about me? we need to focus on important issues facing our nation, like how the election is rigged. >> stephen: really? who's rigging it?
11:47 pm
international bankers, amd billy bush. >> stephen: billy bush. so you don't blame your husband for what he said? >> yes, i do. i said to my husband that those words are very unappropriate. plus, he said them on a bus. disgusting. ( laughter ) this is not the man i married. >> stephen: well, have you forgiven your husband? >> yes. ( laught ( applause ) ( cheers ) >> stephen: you have? yes, yes, apparently because he-- he explained it was locker room talk. i did not know this, but when american men gather to sport, they always brag of grabbing women by the billy bush. ( laughter ) >> stephen: i'm sorry.
11:48 pm
>> boosh. >> stephen: boosh. okay. so you've forgiven him. i have morthan forgiven, stephen. i have forgotten >> stephen: it's hard to believe anyone can forget what he said. >> forget what was today? >> stephen: okay, but numerous women have said they were groped by your husband, as well as beauty pageant contestants who they were naked. >> those are all lies, stephen. except the ones where there's videotape. then it's locker room talk. >> stephen: explain something to me, how is it locker room talk walking in on pageant contestants? >> it's a women's locker room. stephen. my husband is kind. he is a gentleman. >> stephen: okay, he's a gentleman, then why did he say
11:49 pm
>> he's raw. he tells it like it is. and these women, woof. am i right. up top. >> stephen: i can't high-five you over satellite. mrs. trump, are you all right? >> i am fine. i'm certainly not blinking out in morse code that someone else is in the room telling me what to say. ( laughter ) >> stephen: okay. do you think these scandals will doom your husband's chances among women? >> women know it's boy talk. bad boys, bad boys, what you going to do? ( laughter ) >> stephen: i hate to point this out, but your husband isn't a boy. he's a 70-year-old man. >> boys, men-- it's the same. no matter how nice they seem, secretly they're all foul-mouthed billy-bush-grabbing pigs. i'm talking about your husband, your brother, the pope, luke skywalker, all of them. >> stephen: all men are like this? >> yes. they're all animals.
11:50 pm
( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: well, i don't know how to say this, i mean, melania, actually, hillary clinton is a woman. why don't you just vote for her? >> aaahoh! i can't hear you, stephen. oh, no, our connection is breaking up. >> stephen: melania trump, everybody. we'll be right back with nick offerman and his technicolor. dream beard. your car insurance policy is 22 pages long. did you read every word? no, only lawyers do that. so when you got rear-ended and needed a tow,
11:51 pm

( laughter ). >> stephen: because that's my favorite part to shave. every place else is a pain. then you put the after-shave in and it stings like hell, man. it stings. anyway, thanks very much, thanks very much. >> no, it's my pleasure. i like to present myself as mother nature intended.

11:57 pm
now, i'm a cubs fan upon you're a cubs fan. serious is tied up. we're taping this before the game tonight. >> that's right. >> stephen: in l.a. how are you handling the stress? >> well, you know, i have-- i have a compart mentallization system. like, when i allditioned for the role of iran swanson, it took five months to get the job, so for that five months i had to put that information in this attached to a motion. so i know that something might happen in the coming weeks that would be very good for my baseball team. but i-- i'm not attaching emotion to it. and -- >> when do you attach the emotion to it? ( laughter ) you've loved and lost, is what you're saying. and now you're afraid to feel. >> i suppose so. ( laughter ) i've-- i've become inured to feeling. >> stephen: how do you stay so zen about this?
11:58 pm
you dedicate some of this to your sense. >> i have a teacher-- sense means teacher in japanese, in theater school-- >> stephen: that's what a lot of parents say when they find out their kids are going to theater school. "where is your son?" "in theater school-- ha-ha." >> in theater school in champagne, illinois, there was a gentleman ceremony, and black ink painting. i don't know how he ended up in champagne, but we were lucky to have him. and he and i really hit it off. i would help him in his garden and he would teach me about zen-- he blew my mind. we were pulling weeds and he said the notion to pull weeds is the same thing that causes us to go to war. and i said ( inhails )

( laughter ) >> stephen: did you find a war hawk zen master? that doesn't sound necessarily antiwar? >> he is-- he is eye wonderfully sweet artist. and he was simply -- >> to take his oil. >> that may have been my paraphrasing of his lesson. >> stephen: okay. >> he married megan and i with a tea ceremony. >> stephen: really? >> yeah. >> stephen: that's delightful. >> he gave me some of the greatest lessons of my life that i didn't know until later would just always stick with me. and it's a lot of what this book is about. woodworking for me is where i can always maintain the attitude

12:16 am
( laughter ) how did that happen? what did that mean to you at 10? >> well, some guy decided-- i scored 400 goals when i was 10, and some guy decided -- >> you scored 400 goals when you were 10? >> yeah. i played with some good players. >> stephen: yeah, yeah. >> i played defense. >> stephen: okay. >> so i got 400 goals. and this guy wrote in a little town, he wrote in a paper, everybody should have their own nickname. a player of that caliber should have a name and he said we'll callm, and i thought oh, my goodness i don't want that name. and it stuck with me my whole life. >> stephen: did you feel you had to live up to it when you became a pro? >> i felt the responsibility of playing well. each and every night, the cities you played nthe people paid to see you play and you want to play the best you can play. believe me, i had a lot of bad games, but all in all, i am pretty proud of my career. ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: the game, as you see it now-- when you look at
12:17 am
>> oh, yeah. the players are bigger. they're faster. they're better athletes. the equipment's better. they're better coached. it's a great time for hockey right now. our sport is in a good position, it's in a good place. i'm a fan. i love watching these kids play. >> stephen: how do you think you would do in today's league? >> i'm 55. >> stephen: i mean, when you were younger. >> oh, okay. >> stephen: obviously, you won't be in the top 10 now. but when you were younger-- if you were a younger man in today's league, would it be tougr tougher. >> stephen: why? >> because the players are better. but i think that somehow my hockey sense i would have found my way through it all. >> stephen: your hockey sense. >> i didn't have the size or the power or the speed. i had to use my knowledge of the game, and that's what made me successful as a player. so i somehow would find a way today, but, obviously, it would be tougher. >> stephen: was there-- so many people look up to you. who was the player you looked up
12:18 am
( applause ) yeah. he was -- >> mr. hockey. >> the greatest person, the greatest player. i say this all times to people, sometimes you meet your idol and your mom and dad say, hour, was it? was he good? was he nice? was he friendly?" sometimes it's not that great. i met gordie howe when i was 10 and i said to my dad, it was bigger and better than that i ever imagined. what was really great about it, i got t that day, and i got a new suit. that was my first suit i ever got after the banquet. >> stephen: how much longer after this? >> i was 10 in that photo. >> stephen: how long before you were playing pro hockey. >> seven years. >> stephen: seven years did you ever play against gordie howe. >> we played together in the world pleeg all star game. that was fun. gordie was in the locker room, and my sweater was so big-- i was 145 pounds that year-- and
12:19 am
stitched up my jersey to make it tighter. and i kept the jersey. gordie howe did it before the game. that's how great he was. the book is called "99: stories of the game." 99, obviously, was your jersey number. are there 99 stories in here? >> approximately. it was so hard to pick exactly what we wanted. it is the ninth anniversary of the national hockey league right now, so i wanted the kids to read about the cities and the arenas and the plaers and the the great stories of the players who played the game. i loved the game so much, and it was so good to me. i wrote-- sat down and wrote something. hopefully kids will love it. >> stephen: one other thing about gordie howe. i understand when you broke his all-time scoring record he was there. >> yeah. he was-- he was always around-- every time i got close to one of his records i would call and invite gordie and colleen to be part of it. sometimes i would get so nervous
12:20 am
and i'd be saying, "oh, my gosh, i have to score a goal here so gordie howe can go home." that was pressure. >> stephen: did he travel around with you guys? >> yes, he did. he's a wonderful man. and i loved him being around, let's face it. >> stephen: was it also hockey or do you think there could have been another sport you could have played? >> my first love and my passion was baseball. as a kid, i grew up-- i loved the game of baseball more than anything. i just wasn't quite as baseball as i was hockey. so i think i made the right decision. >> stephen: now, i understand you actually ran into the cleveland indians in a hotel the other day. >> yes, toronto. >> stephen: gave them a few tips. >> i gave them a couple of poirnts and both guys hit home run. >> stephen: so if they win the series, you get to touch the trophy. >> yeah, people in toronto will be upset. >> stephen: "99: stories of the game" is available now. the great one, wayne gretzky,

"rats" airs on october 22 on discovery channel. morgan spurlock, everybody! we'll be right back. ? i've seen what can happen as the result of hate. my son matt was murdered in laramie, wyoming, in 1998. he was befriended by two men in a bar who pretended to be gay. they offered him a ride home, and when he was in their car, they robbed him and beat him. they drove matt out to the prairie
12:35 am
then beat him some more and left him for dead. in the aftermath of matt's death, my family saw the best of america in the love and support we were shown. so when i see the hate that donald trump has brought to his campaign for president, it terrifies me. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell ya. ahh, i don't know what i said, uhh, i don't remember. he's a mexican. i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i wouldn't... words have an influence. violence causes pain. hate can rip us apart.
12:36 am
bert kearney: i fought for my country in kosovo and iraq, and i've been a republican all my life. but i'm the father of three girls. i can't stand hearing donald trump call women pigs, dogs, and bimbos...and i sure don't want my daughters hearing it. i want my girls to grow up proud and strong, in a nation where they're valued and respected. donald trump's america is not the country i fought for. so, i'm voting for hillary clinton. hillary clinton: amendment 1 guarantees your right - to generate your own solar energy. and placing that right in florida's constitution - keeps the politicians from messing with it. amendment 1 also allows for common sense consumer protections - because that's the right way to do solar.
12:37 am
