tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  November 9, 2018 11:35pm-12:38am PST

11:35 pm
nba up top.... he warriors... late show is next. >> have a great weekend. take care. captioning sponsored by cbs >> the blue wave may not have been a tsunami. but the pink wave ushered in over 100 women to the house of representatives. a new record. ♪ ♪ >> your congressional body and you. hey there, congressman. guess what? your congressional body is almost 240 years old now, and it's going through some changes. tlybut don't worry, it natural. where you used to have hairless men, your congressional body will sprout something new: women. you'll notice gradual changes: an enlargement of support for reproductive rights, sudden
11:36 pm
development of fair-pay legislation, and a dramatic loss of creepy winking. of course, you will have to deal with bloating, mood swings, and fits of irrational anger. >> you are a rude, terrible person. >> but don't be afraid, congress. you're on your way to becoming a more mature representative body. happy legislating. and, remember, don't pull your penis out. >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, potus in paris. plus, stephen welcomes: alexander skarsgard triumph the insult comic dog and musical guest big red machine 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 )
11:37 pm
>> stephen: hey! please! that is-- jon, you know what that is? that's a friday crowd right there. that's a friday crowd. ( cheers and applause ) i can lean against it. i i can lean against it. welcome to "the late show," everybody. i'm your host, stephen colbert. happy friday! ( cheers and applause ) give it up for yourself. we made it! i hope everyone has big plans for the weekend. donald trump does. he's going to paris. or as trump describes it: >> paris is no longer paris. >> stephen (as trump): " you are no longer paris. by the power vested in me by no one, i hereby rename you, 'furry armpit junction.'" ( laughter ) trump is in-- he's over there-- he's over there because he wants
11:38 pm
that military parade, right. he is over there for a big military parade that will mark the 100th anniversary of the world war i armistice. in honor of america's service in the great war, we sent our biggest doughboy. ( laughter ) ( applause ) as i said, trump really wanted his own military parade, but it's been postponed until at least 2019, which will give the pentagon enough time to complete their new f-13 garfield. ( laughter ) but things could get tense between trump and macron, because france is opposed to new u.s. sanctions against iran, which trump announced last week on twitter, with this meme: "sanctions are coming." although, when it comes to "game of thrones" references, i prefer the trump family motto: "a trump never pays his debts." ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) now, it may be tense-- it might
11:39 pm
be tense over there, but trump will have at least one ally in paris: russian president vladimir putin, okay. it makes sense, it makes sense that putin is going to meet donald trump in paris. he's usually involved when trump's around someone going, "oui, oui!" ( laughter ) ( applause ) allegedly. allegedly. >> jon: wow! >> stephen: allegedly. but when asked if he was going to meet with putin while in paris, trump told reporters "probably not," explaining, "we haven't set anything up yet." (as trump): " whatever happens, happens. we don't want to make the event too formal. the dress code is 'collusion casual.'" ( laughter ) now for a change, for a change, let's talk about something that's not in the news: the caravan! ♪ ♪
11:40 pm
thanks. i went into the spin too late. i went to the spin too late. for those too you young to remember the caravan, a week ago it was all anybody could talk about. >> thousands upon thousands of migrants literally marching to the u.s. in what would be a mass invasion. >> they are coming in with diseases such as smallpox and leprosy and t.b. that are going to infect our people. >> gang activity, gang members in those caravans. >> dangerous criminals. >> it's not a caravan. it's an invasion. >> it is a full-scale invasion by a hostile force. >> stephen: and now, it's gone. ( laughter ) i mean, how is that possible? who got rid of the caravan? could it be... the caravan? ♪ ♪ ( applause ) i can't do that.
11:41 pm
i can't do the... ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: i like that spin! i like that spin! >> stephen: can't do that-- can't do that at the end of a week like this. now, in fact, i counted how many times they talked about the caravan on "fox & friends." well, technically, i had my footage department do it. i can't watch "fox & friends," because my doctor says it's just horrible. ( laughter ) anyway, this is true, in the six days leading up to the election, they used the word "caravan" an average of 21 times per episode. then, the day after the midterms, "fox & friends" only mentioned it once. yeah. it was huge for, like, a week, and now nothing. it's the tide pod challenge of american politics. ( laughter ) except tide pods will actually kill you. and i know many of us feel like we've aged several years in just the past year.
11:42 pm
but at least one person says he's going in the other direction, because in the netherlands, a 69-year-old man asked the government to be legally declared 49. why would you change ages at 69?! you just got to the only funny number. ( laughter ) the man in question is life coach and man who got a new beard trimmer for christmas, emile ratelband. he says he wants to lose 20 years because "if you're 69 on tinder, you're outdated." um, emile, i don't know how to break this to you, but if you're 49 on tinder, you're also outdated. ( laughter ) your choices are e-harmony,, or put on a suit and try your luck at the local library. now, i know what you're saying, "tinder has a feature for people
11:43 pm
who are old. it's called lying." but emile doesn't want to lie, because "if you lie, you have to remember everything you say." and he's having trouble remembering things, because, again, he's 69 years old! ( laughter ) ( applause ) but emile insists, emile insists -- sure, why not? give it up for the guy. he doesn't have long. but emile insists that these days, we can be whoever we want. "we can make our own decisions if we want to change our name, if we want to change our gender. my feeling about my body and about my mind is that i'm about 40 or 45." good luck with that argument out on the dating scene. "no, no, no. you don't understand. i identify as being attractive to you." ( laughter ) okay? "see how you're the problem? you see?" ( applause ) and i get it, emile. i identify as the 30-year-old version of me.
11:44 pm
then every morning i look in the mirror and i scream "who are you? how did you get in here? are you okay? who did this to you?" ( laughter ) moisturize! of course, we need to address the major scandal currently rocking the armed forces; namely, that two marine corps pilots are currently under investigation for their part in "a sky penis flight pattern." "sky penis," of course, was the worst marvel character ever. ( laughter ) his nemesis was "coldpool." >> jon: aahhh! >> stephen: thank you very much. thank you very much. thank you very much. a coldpool fan back there. apparently, these marines flew in patterns which, when the tracking data was plotted, draws a penis. and here's how good these pilots are: their drawing was so accurate, cbs made us blur it! ( laughter )
11:45 pm
( applause ). >> jon: wow! >> stephen: honest to god. >> jon: whoa! >> stephen: right? ( applause ) >> jon: we had to blur the thing? >> stephen: i also want to point out these guys did it directly over the salton sea in california, which is also penis-shaped, so, jimmy, blur that one, too. but we shouldn't punish these pilots. we should celebrate them. i believe nothing will lift a nation's spirits like looking up to see a giant penis in the sky. ( applause ) long may it wave. now that the midterms are over, now that the midterms are over, we've got that done, we can focus on an infinitely more important power struggle happening in our nation's capital: the fact that the national zoo's naked. mole-rats still have not chosen their queen. of course, this is a position
11:46 pm
that's been empty since the white house hired stephen miller. ( laughter ) so many questions. >> jon: that's cold-blooded! >> stephen: cold-blooded? thank you very much. who will be naked mole-rat queen? and what kinds of royal intrigue will she face once she's coronated? are you listening, netflix? this needs to be season four of "the crown." ( laughter ) we've got a great show for you tonight. alexander skarsgard is here! but first, i'm going to show you a cartoon! stick around! ♪ blue skies smiling at me nothing but blue skies ♪ ♪ ♪

( clears throat ) do you wear it on a chain around your neck because that's what i would do. >> no. >> stephen: you can't do that? >> no, i was-- i was born and
12:01 am
raised in sweden, and we have something in sweden called the law of junta. it's a real thing. and it basically means don't think you're special. it's more like a code of conduct. but it translates to, yeah, no-- don't think you're special. just know -- >> stephen: don't brag. >> no ostentatious flaunting of your accolades or brag about your achievements or anything. >> stephen: try not to be too happy. >> yeah. so if you ever-- like, if something great happens or you achieve something, swedes get very embarrassed and they apologize. >> stephen: and at the law of junta. what's junta mean? >> it's fiction. it's a small town, i believe in denmark, in a short story from the 1930s. and it was-- denmark fans out there. ( applause ) >> stephen: yeah, yeah. >> i'm from sweden, so you might
12:02 am
want to keep it down. ( laughter ) yeah. and people in this town just, you know, you keep each other in place, like, don't think you're special. like, don't-- that's why, like, the founder of ikea, famously drove a volvo 244, like, until he died. he might have died in the car. i don't know. >> stephen: you're not supposed to be flash. >> no flash. you won't find gold hummers or anything like that in sweden. >> stephen: what about the of royal family. they have crowns and they have robes. >> think it's slightly schizophrenic for them because theatre royal family, but they're also swedes. so they're like, "hey, i'm the king. sorry." ( laughter ) ( applause ). >> stephen: well, i feel bad-- i'll tell you what i feel sorry about is the year that you won was not this year but the year before was the emmys that i was hosting. and you came to the after-party that i threw, and i-- and i saw
12:03 am
you. and i did not know you had won because when you're hosting, you actually don't get to watch. you're prepping for the next thing you're doing, so i don't know who's winning. and i certainly am a fan, and i thought you should have won. but i saw you at the party afterwards. and i said, "hey, did you have a good time tonight?" >> i remember that. >> stephen: and you said, "yeah." ( laughter ) >> well, you know, what? you were the only person that didn't make me uncomfortable that night. because everyone else was. >> audience: oohh! >> stephen: stephen! no, because of the good old-- i was uncomfortable because people congratulated me and i didn't know how to deal with that and i couldn't take it. so i was very-- and it was refreshing andica thargtic to meet you because you have no idea. "are you having fun tonight. welcome to my party." >> stephen: i felt terrible. >> you shouldn't. >> stephen: you could have said, "i won." >> no, i would never do that!
12:04 am
( laughter ) and then i didn't know what-- ( laughter ) i didn't know what to do with the trophies because that was also, like, a big thing of, like, how do i as a swede-- i'm, obviously, very proud of them. but i'm a swede, so i can't, like, just put them up on the mantelpiece or display them so i kept them at a friend's place for a couple of months, and i brought them over my place in a hidden suitcase. and then i put them nay closet for a couple of months. then i thought this is ridiculous. >> stephen: you're ashamed. >> and i'm not. i love my little trophies. so i can't put them on the bookshelves. so i'm still struggling with it. >> stephen: maybe dress them up. dress them up as something so they're there, but people can't recognize the emmy. >> i actually even tried that. i thought if i hang a flag or something on it, it looks like it's-- or a coat hanger.
12:05 am
but then-- and then it kept me up at night, and then i realized, oh, this is what i'm struggling with in my life as a hollywood actor. ( laughter ) i don't eye don't know where to put my accolades. there's, like, so much pain and suffering in the world, and i feel terrible because-- and then i started to loathe myself abuse, like, these are the issues in my life at the moment. >> stephen: that way lies greatness. and madness. ( laughter ). >> well, i-- i touched the madness, not so much the greatness. >> stephen: but, you know, i can understand you might have a little trouble with hollywood fame because you're just some guy from sweden, right? you served in the military over there, which is-- is that compulsory? >> it used to be. it's not now, not anymore. >> stephen: was it when you were doing it? >> it was kind of on the cusp. you could get out of it, if you wanted to. >> stephen: you just say, "i don't feel like it?" >> pretty much. i had friends who kind of-- basically said, like, "no,
12:06 am
thanks." ( laughter ) yeah. and the government would be like, other, that's cool." >> stephen: what did you train to be? >> it's called sect yut. security and hunt. >> stephen: security and hunt? >> yeah, our job was to secure the island, it's a small unit, part of the royal navy, but we're land based and it's basically to secure the islands. >> stephen: some like special forces. like really highly trained military fighting? >> i applied because it looked like a james bond, the little booklet i read. it looked bad-ass. >> stephen: there's a booklet? >> yeah. >> stephen: i don't think james bond came way brochure. "so you want to be a member of m.i.6?" >> that's how they recruit it. young bond was recruited with a booklet, with picture s. >> stephen: can you explain to me what this is?
12:07 am
i've been told this is an important thing for someone who was in the swedish military. what is this that i have in my hand? >> it's unique to my unit. weert only ones allowed to wear that. so and this is -- >> stephen: this and old men fishing in america. ( laughter ) what-- what-- what is-- i think woody allen wears one of these. what-- what is this? >> he actually served in that unit back in the day. a little-known fact. >> stephen: that's how he got to know bergman. what is this? who is the specialness of this? >> it's a hat. no, it's-- yeah, they dropped us in the woods for what felt like six months, but i think it was 10 days, and it was like a survival course where you basically had to-- there were different stations -- >> stephen: by yourself? >> the unit, yeah, it was me and three other guys. >> stephen: what time of year? >> winter. >> stephen: winter in sweden. that-- >> and then there were different-- it was like an ambush, and then they held us hostage. and you're, obviously, like, sleep deprived and you don't
12:08 am
eat. at one point i remember we had to assemble a canoe. and that was horrible because we had been weak for a week, and we were starving and we're from the land ikea, so we should be able to do that. ( laughter ). >> stephen: did it come with an alan wrench, the canoe? that's the problem. >> it took us nine hours to do that. and it was-- yeah, it was horrible. but it was all worth it, because they gave me a hat at the end of it. >> stephen: so you earned the hat by doing that. >> i earned the hat. >> stephen: congratulations? >> thank you. >> stephen: put this over the emmy and no one will see. plawf's ( applause ) i understand-- we've got to go here in a minute and i want to talk about "the little drummer girl." i understand you're a sailor now? did you some-- a big ocean sail? >> i-- i would not call myself a sailor. i-- i had an opportunity to cross the atlantic on a sailboat
12:09 am
with people who knew what they were doing. ( laughter ). >> stephen: it would help if you were a sailor. it would help if you were a sailor on a sailboat >> didn't help that much on the boat, but i was part of it, and that was great. >> stephen: what ports did you sail from? >> from ventura off the coast of africa, to the caribbean. >> stephen: okay. and-- and-- i've done a little bit of ocean sailing. i've done, about 1,000 mielsz of open ocean sailing. >> okay. >> stephen: it's very spooky out there. >> yeah. ( laughter ) >> stephen: because you're alone. >> well, yeah, so, for like eight-- it took about three weeks, and for eight days we didn't see another ship. and it's easy to go down the rabbit hole if you start thinking about the fact we're completely alone. you have no hospital around here. if you have a burst appendix, you're done, there's nothing -- >> stephen: sure, you think of all the ways i could die before help could get to me. seriously, you think about that all the time. >> at one point, there was no wind and we were stuck for a
12:10 am
little bit. >> stephen: that's the worst because you go super squirrelly in the head. >> this is a true story. an ocean turtle passed us when we were 700 miles from land, this little guy, just swam past us. and we're like, "that's great." ( laughter ). >> stephen: so the new movie is called "the little drummer girl." what's it about? >> so, it's a six-part limited series. i think it's going to air as three two-hour movies here on amc. it's already on the bbc, the second episode aired last night. it's about a young act resfrom the u.k. on a vacation in greece. and she meets a man on that island, and an innigmatic dude. it starts out as a budding romance, but it turns out he's a spy and he has a different plan for her. >> stephen: and we have a

( laughter ) you see, you get it because ted is animal (bleep). he did give an emotional speech and it got some attention because he used a fleeting profanity. >> yes, yes, oh, yes. beto said a swear word on tv. can you imagine! a senatorial candidate cursing on stage like a common
12:19 am
president! ( laughter ) gla it's sad. >> think about it. >> stephen: sad is what it is. >> here's my opinion-- honestly, i think there's too much blame focused on beto for saying the "f" word in his speech and not enough credit being given to steve king for not saying the "n" word in his. ( laughter ) >> stephen: despite big turnout the republicans gained seats in the senate. >> yes, mitch mcconnell was the most satisfied he has felt since he paid off the entire mortgage on his shell.
