( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: that's nice. that makes it hard for me, and i'm afraid-- i like to come out here with good news, but i have heartbreaking news. scientists have done their science stuff, and unfortunately they have discovered that dogs hate being hugged. bad, scientists, bad! you made a mess here. they looked at photos of dogst. being hugged and analyzed them for signs of stress or anxiety, like flattened ears or wide eye, like this one. the mom's saying, "awww." the kid's saying, "yay!" and the dog's saying, "sweet death. take me now!" ( laughter ) this is shattering. i have a dog named coo
11:40 pm
i hug her all the time, and she always responds with love growls. ( laughter ) i feel terrible. now, i'm imagining all the other secret complaints our dogs have. why did you take me from my mother? what did you do with my balls? why do you keep stealing my poop? ( laughter ) ( applause ) i think we might be-- i'm not sure, scientists checked this out-- we might be making dogs do all kinds of things they don't like. maybe they hate the taste of frisbees. maybe they can't stand being left home alone all day with the tv on. maybe our kids don't like that, either. maybe that's why they hug the dog. well, i want to help out because i belong to another species that do not enjoy close human contact: adult men. we've come up with a way to get around hugging. it's called the bro hug. dogs, pay attention. you alreadow
11:41 pm
now, just keep the hands between you when you hug. that way, your groins can never touch, all right? that's one answer. ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: yeah. >> stephen: a lot of daylight, a lot of daylight. or a lot of times we don't touch at all. we just hang out and drink in silence. we stuff our feelings down into a tight little ball, then they come out inappropriately at dinner ten years later. speaking of man friends, you just saw him. say hello to jon batiste and stay human, everybody. ♪ ♪ >> stephen: all right. that's nice.

11:56 pm
that had been left unsaid?" >> yes. should i tell what you it was? >> stephen: please. >> we wrote this book affect which was an e-mail conversation, which was kind of a companion to the documentary called "the rainbow comes and goes." >> stephen: here it is right here. >> it's a "new york times" bestseller. i asked her, what was howard hughes like? and i was like, was it like leo dicaprio? and she said, "much better than him." and then she just volunteered it was the first time she didn't have to fake an orgasm. and i was like--... oh! >> stephen: check, yeah.

11:57 pm
birthday all the way to her 92nd birthday. and i asked her a question-- it was easier-- you know, when your mom is telling you about orgasms, it's embarrassing. so it's much easier to have this conversation or ask embarrassing questions over e-mail. >> stephen: at 91, when you guys started, your mom was fine with e-mail? because that's good for a 91-year-old. >> she got an e-mail when she was 89. i didn't have the patience to deal with it. i tried for a day and wanted to kill her. so i actually got a friend of mine to do it who is far more patient and far more medicated. yeah, to this day, she calls up my friend with like, "the e-mail is stuck. you can come over?" so my friend whats too over -- >> it's stuck in the tube. it's all stuck in the tube. >> exactly. >> stephen: do you see your mom all the time? >> i don't. the nice thing about being on tv is you don't have to see your mom as much. she watches me every night, so she feels like she sees me. >> stephen: that's nice. >> months will go by,
11:58 pm
realized a couple of months ago, i realized i hadn't seen her for, like two months, and i called her up, and said, "do you want me to come by?" she said,"i'm good. i see you." >> stephen: i have my wine and a hand full of nuts. i'm good." stick around and we'll talk about the election. we'll be back with some more anderson cooper.

chance of clinching the nomination or the convention name their running mate all right? >> you know, it's just par for the course of how things are going. look, i think it was a way of change the conversation. he had a really bad night on tuesday night, and so what better way to kind of distract from that, than announce your running mate and sort of-- i don't know-- make yourself seem more viable, perhaps. >> stephen: sure, sure. >> yeah. and she sang, too is there i know. i know. very few vice presidential candidates sing when they get to-- >> not enough in my book. not enough. >> stephen: exactly. >> i'm all for it. >> stephen: exactly. i know biden probably could, he probably could. i would love to hear him sing some bon jovi. that would be a lot of fun. >> i imagine him singing "danny boy "or something. >> stephen: we'd all be coming. >> , of course,. >> stephen: do you have anything coming up? is there another debate coming up you're moderating, another town hall? >> they pop up with some regulators. there are no more debate they say know about, but there will, obviously, be presidential debates once the can
