11:47 pm
i am a 51-year-old man, but i can name every member of taylor swift's girl squad. sometimes instead of paying a toll on the highway, i just drive through, yelling "i'm stephen colbert!" ( cheers and applause ) i never pitch in for pizza, but i always take the last slice. ( laughter ) i tell people that my fists are named "slayer" and "dominator," but they're really named "ross" and "rachel." ( laughter ) audience, i actually like the npr pledge drive.
11:48 pm
it makes me feel like i'm wanted. sometimes, sometimes i use my foot to make lines in the carpet so it looks like i vacuumed. ( laughter ) when i'm in other people's houses, i look through their medicine cabinets. ( laughter ) those were actually tic tacs. and i regret having put them on a pizza. ( laughter ) one time a little kid asked me if famous people like me go to the bathroom. i lied and told him, "yes."
11:49 pm
( laughter ) sometimes i look at a shampoo bottle and i think, "shouldn't they have tested this on animals first?" ( laughter ) last week, when i was talking with barack obama... i don't have anything to confess, i just wanted to say that last week i was talking with barack obama. ( cheers and applause ) my dog isn't really a service dog, i just bought him a vest online so i could take him to the movies with me.

11:50 pm
that wasn't my real dog. ( laughter ) and i'm guessing i wasn't supposed to feed him pizza. every year i go on my wikipedia page and i make myself one inch taller.

12:10 am
kind of hundreds of billions of dollars bet on subprime mortgage bonds. >> stephen: leading up to the 2008 financial crisis. >> most of the inside of wall street was long, they owned subprime mortgage bonds. and the guys in the movies, the guys in the book were betting, they saw it coming and were betting against it. >> stephen: how many people saw this sort of thing coming? you say that wall street was long, like everybody on wall street was like, how is this. >> i think it's fair to say that up until almost the very end, all the big wall street banks, certainly the regulators, most investors didn't really see it coming. when i was working on the book, i remember asking the question, who was on the right side, like who were the smart people, all these banks were the stupid money. and that was the thing that was shocking to me. you have these banks that have had called, like the best and the brightest from america's best universities, for 30 years, they ship these people in, and they commit mass suicide. i mean they make this-- these horrible investment decisions.
12:11 am
the one thing they are supposed to do, right, is figure out where you put capital, where you lend money. and they poured hundreds of billions of dollars into these bad loans. so who were the ones on the other side? oddballs, mainly. they were maybe kind of a dozen or 15 people, all together, who- - >> stephen: all together? >> no, no, who-- >> stephen: there are hundreds of thousands of people. >> let me qualify, who went all in, they said this is the bet of a lifetime to bet against the system, against what these banks are doing. and who really, essentially risked their careers making the bet. lots of investors made little bets. the guys who laid it all on the line, not very many. >> stephen: christian bale, what is his character? >> dr. michael berry. >> stephen: and he goes into goldman sachs or one of these big investment banks and says will you sell me something called a subprime mortgage credit default swap. >> he is buying insurance on the bond. so it's like if i think your house is going to burn down and
12:12 am
i want to bet on it, i could buy insurance on your house. >> stephen: are you betting my house would burn down? >> that is kind of what he is saying. he's saying, "i think your house will burn down and i want to buy insurance on it." sells me the insurance. i don't own the house. >> stephen: aren't you, don't you have an incentive to become an arsonist? >> yes, you do. >> stephen: people did lose their homes, but the banks did not go out of business because we bailed them out and did not break them up. >> true. >> stephen: was that a bad idea? >> yes, yes. >> stephen: why? ( applause ) because i had bernanke on the show. i have had in that chair, i have had hillary clinton, ben bernanke. he said you had to save them, nothing to do, the whole house come a'tumbling down if you didn't. hillary clinton said it was a mistake. next time we can't bail them out and have to break them up. >> so, i think what they failed to appreciate, when they resuscitated these places and let them stay in business, that they would proceed then to not only get bigger, even bigger,
12:13 am
that's the amazing thing, but also to start to meddle in the process to reform them, and to sort of like throw their political thought into preventing any kind of change. so misreading the political consequences of letting them survive. so it would have made-- it would have been much easier to reform the system if the banks weren't there paying lobbyists, paying politicians to stop it from happening. >> stephen: is there something right now, i mean there must be something right now that a handful of people are shorting, but the rest of us just have no idea about, that is just waiting out there like a spider to catch us. >> i'm just a writer. i am not-- >> stephen: well, you used to do this, you used to do this. >> but i sucked at it. >> stephen: did you sell bad bonds? >> that's putting it a little too crudely. >> stephen: yes or no question, senator, yes or no question. >> yeah, absolutely. you are continually put in the position of having to sell stuff the bank wants to unload. so absolutely, absolutely. do you absolve me, can i go in the confessional? >> stephen: do you forgive him? >> we forgive you!
