( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: wooo! hello! come on! beautiful! beautiful! welcome. thank you for being here. welcome, welcome one and all to "the late show,."
11:37 pm
i'm your host, stephen colbert. well today, there really is just one big story: america's step-daddy is angry. ( laughter ) see, trump and congress have been in a standoff over investigations. until now, trump has blocked every request made by house investigators and demo-crates-- them there demo-crates -- they have a painful case of the blue subpoenas. ( laughter ) so this is leading to more and more and more of those demo-crates to throw up their hands and call for impeachment. so, this morning, nancy pelosi held a meeting to calm down her caucus, and she emerged to say this: >> we believe no one is above the law, including the president of the united states, and we believe the president is engaged in a cover-up. >> stephen: it's called bronzer, nancy.
11:38 pm
it's called bronzer, nancy, and he's not fooling anyone. ( cheers and applause ) i thought i could beat them. i thought i could beat them. after that, pelosi and chuck schumer headed over to the white house for a pre-scheduled meeting on their infrastructure deal. if you remember a couple of weeks ago, make a month, the democrats proposed a $1 trillion infrastructure deal and trump said, "why not $2 trill?" so they said okay. today was just supposed to be hammering out the details and venmo-ing the cash, with a lig bridge emoji or something like that. ( laughter ) it didn't work out that way. according to people in the room, trump walked in, didn't shake anyone's hand or take a seat, and left before anyone else could speak. all told, it was over in three minutes. >> audience: ooooh! >> stephen: according to stormy daniels, that's two bonus minutes. ( laughter ) ( applause ) ♪ ♪
11:39 pm
now, trump walked out the door, straight to the rose garden for a nationally televised hissy fit, complete with a podium adorned with a preprinted sign that said, "no collusion, no obstruction." block the seal. very presidential, i gotta say, very presidential. it reminds me of the time that jefferson addressed the continental congress behind a sign that said, "sally hemmings, just a friend." ( laughter ) trump started -- he started the whole kid kitt and caboodle by explaining why the infrastructure meeting was so short. >> i just wanted to let you know that i walked into the room, and i told senator schumer, speaker pelosi, "i want to do infrastructure. i want to do it more than you want to do it. i'd be really good at that. that's what i do.
11:40 pm
but you know what? you can't do it under these circumstances." >> stephen: so trump has a clear stance on infrastructure. (as trump) "it's my way, or no highway." ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) >> jon: that's about right. that sums it up, yeah. >> stephen: trump was furious about the democrats' ongoing efforts to be congress, and drew a line in the sand. >> so, i've said from the beginning, right from the beginning, that you probably can't go down two tracks. you can go down the investigation track. and you can go down the investment track or the track of "let's get things done for the american people." ( laughter ) ( applause ) ( cheers )
11:41 pm
>> stephen: okay, we just counted three tracks, and it still went off the rails. ( laughter ) the source of trump's rage was pelosi's meeting this morning, and growing calls to remove him from office. >> all of a sudden, i hear last night, they're going to have a meeting right before this meeting, to talk about the "i" word. the "i" word. can you imagine? >> stephen: i can. ( cheers and applause ) ♪ ♪ i'm imagining it right now, and that's-- ( laughter ) that's why jim's shooting me from the waist up. ( laughter ) ( applause ) ( cheers ) solid family show. then trump let us know that he's denying congress' constitutional powers for a noble purpose.
11:42 pm
if some day a democrat becomes president, and you have a republican house, they can impeach him for any reason-- or her-- any reason. we can't allow that to happen. >> stephen: (as trump) "we can't have a world where republicans impeach a democrat for something everyone does, like lying about cheating on your wife. or her wife." ( laughter ) the president also defended his son, who has been subpoenaed by the senate. >> my son don, who's a good young man, who's gone through hell. >> stephen: (as trump) "i mean, he had me as a father. that could not have been easy. that is-- that is-- that's a rough-- that's a tough road to hoe." >> jon: oh, my goodness. >> stephen: then he rambled on about the phone calls that don jr. made after the meetings with russians at trump tower.
11:43 pm
it's long been suspected that one of those was to his father, to tell him about the russians. but that's all cleared up now? >> three calls... after massive study and work, they actually found who made the calls. one was a friend of ours, a real estate developer. great guy. most of you know him. nice guy. loves our country. and the other one was the head of nascar. two of them. >> stephen: two of them. what about the third call? ( laughter ) ( as trump ) "look, i've been accused of eating three pies, but i haven't eaten any pie. want proof? here's two of the pies. ( laughter ) now, does anyone have some floss? because i got a lot of rhubarb in my teeth." ( laughter ) but this speech-- ( applause ) "never rub another man's-- never rub another man's rhubarb." but this speech was unusual, because for once, trump actually read from his notes. >> i have 19 special counsel
11:44 pm
lawyers, 40 f.b.i. agents. i said, "open it all up! let them have whatever they want." nearly 500 search warrants-- think of that, a search warrant, did you ever see a search warrant before? neither did i. >> stephen: i have a feeling you're going to be seeing some more. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) trump was reading off a so-called "fact sheet" about the mueller investigation his team handed out to the crowd. now, they got this fact sheet from abc news. but here's the thing. they conveniently left out the second page, which included information, like seven guilty pleas, six trump associates charged, four people sentenced to prison... ♪ and a criminal presidency ( applause )
11:45 pm
" ♪ three wedding rings using only half of that graphic is like writing a review after watching only the half of "titanic." ( as reviewer ) "i enjoyed the big ship and the sex in the car. i smell a sequel." ( laughter ) then it was the democrats' turn to have a press conference, and nancy pelosi called trump out for not having what it takes to get a deal done. >> we had hoped that we could give this president an opportunity to have a signature infrastructure initiative to create jobs, to improve the quality of life, to just do so much for our country. for some reason-- mayybe it was lack of confidence on his part that he really couldn't come-- match the greatness of the challenge that we have.
11:46 pm
>> jon: ooooh! oooh! >> stephen: wow. questioning his confidence. "it seems president trump couldn't rise to the challenge of putting up long bridges and deep tunnels. it happens to a lot of presidents his age." ( laughter ) later in the day, pelosi was at a different event and she raised the stakes. this is why i think the president was so steamed this morning. in plain sight, in the public domain, this president is obstructing justice and he's engaged in a cover-up. and that could be an impeachable offense. >> stephen: what? what did she say, an impeachable ofsss! just say it, nancy. stop teasing us. "hey, kids, get in the car! we're going to the disme ofsss
11:47 pm
store." ( applause ) but it's not just impeachment that has trump upset right now. congress has subpoenaed everyone he knows. the latest target is former white house communications director and new cater waiter who's obviously a spy, hope hicks. yesterday, the house judiciary committee issued a subpoena to hicks, and that must have set the president off, because she was so close to him that aides described her as "trump's surrogate daughter." ( as trump ) "hopey, you're like a daughter to me. and i mean that in only the weirdest way." ( laughter ) -- trump's also-- trump's also t to be angry about his sinking popularity. according to a new quinnipiac poll, trump's approval rating is only 38%. but not for long, because he's going to dump it for an approval rating in her 20s. ( laughter ) but trump-- "38?
11:48 pm
38? my prove a little long in the tooth." but trump has an excuse, tweeting, "without the illegal witch hunt, my poll numbers, especially because of our historically great economy, would be at 65%. too bad!" well, of course people would like you more if they didn't know about the bad stuff you did! ( as trump ) "look, more people would have me over for dinner if they didn't catch me pooping in their washing machines. ( laughter ) too bad! i mean, i put it on delicate cycle. what do you want?" ( laughter ) an image. there you go. speaking of embarrassing polls, anthony weiner. ( laughter ) yesterday, yesterday-- we bring him up, because yesterday, the disgraced former congressman reported to the new york city sex offender monitoring unit, and look at what he's wearing. a t-shirt with a "late show" logo on the pocket.
11:49 pm
thanks a lot, anthony! you can't buy advertising like that. norshould you. now, that logo, which we have over here, we only put on shirts for staff and our guests. we had anthony weiner on years ago, during the brief period in which he was still funny and not yet really upsetting. but this means we need to start adding a warning label to the shirt, saying, "please do not wear while committing or being arrested for sex crimes. also, hang dry." we've got a great show for you tonight. senator kamala harris is here. but when we return, "meanwhile!" stick around! i switched to liberty mutual,

( applause ) we've got tim llefef on the base. and we have kameel thurmond on the sax and the voice. >> stephen: thank you for being here. you know who i have-- i don't
11:55 pm
have those people but i have kamala harris coming out. >> jon: i know her. >> stephen: yes, she's doing very well. >> jon: it will be great. a good night tonight. >> stephen: folks, i spend so much time over there, moving the heavy living room furniture out of the news storage unit. but sometimes i like to dig around under the couch cushions for the spare change, crusty old cheerios, and lifesavers wit hair stuck on them, of news that i meringue up my segment with: "meanwhile!" ( cheers and applause ) it doesn't matter. it doesn't matter how you introduce this. you can introduce it any way you want. meanwhile, "game of thrones" author george r.r. martin says he's working on a video game while he finishes the final two books in the series. oh, no! that might make the writing of those books go slowly. ( laughter ) according to reports, "it's not
11:56 pm
clear whether the game has anything to do with martin's books." to be fair, it's not clear whether george r.r. martin has anything to do with his books. because he's been working on "the winds of winter" for eight years and as far as we know it's still just one page that reads "chapter 1. maybe ned stark comes back? or something else." meanwhile, if you're an n.b.a. fan, here's a very bold opinion from the "wall street journal" about the golden state warriors. "the warriors would not be a dynasty without steph curry, klay thompson, draymond green, andre iguadala and kevin durant." that is a hot take. bold. they also offered the penetrating insight that the beatles might not be as popular without john, paul, george, and ringo. ( laughter ) ( applause ) that's right here. that's right here. meanwhile, last weekend was the running of the 144th annual preakness stakes. and this year's race was wild,
11:57 pm
thanks to a horse by the name of bodexpress. watch him as he comes out of the ninth stall. he leaps hard and-- boom! he immediately throws his jockey! now the horse just has to whip him a few hundred times, and they're even. the jockey's fine. the jock's fine. don't worry. but here's what's great: after tossing his rider, bodexpress successfully completed the race by himself! ( cheers and applause ) okay. i guess we know who the garfunkel is in that relationship. what's even crazier is that bodexpress, coming down the home stretch with no jockey at all, still managed to pass that last guy! that jockey's looking at a very tough year-end performance review. ( as boss ) "okay, bill, we're assessing the valued added of each employee. just tell me in your own words
11:58 pm
how you're not just a talking saddle bag holding a stick." meanwhile, dressbarn is going out of business and plans to shut all 650 of its stores. luckily, there are still many other options for dressbarn's customer base, including blouse bin, skirt-shack, and sock ditch. ( laughter ) meanwhile, it's graduation season, and one new college grad went viral this weekend for celebrating in style: sad thing is, he majored in in black-- (bleep). ♪ ♪ ( cheers and applause )
11:59 pm
who's a (bleep) now? the joke was, "sad thing is he majored in backflip." meanwhile, there was a pretty insane confrontation at l.a.x. this week. it all began when an "enterprise shuttle bus and a jeep collided." then "the driver of the jeep began pounding on the bus window hard enough that it shattered." so "the bus driver pulled a gun on the jeep driver," and "the driver of the jeep pulled a knife," so both were arrested. then another "enterprise employee was also arrested because he is believed to have been passed the gun and tried to hide it." in other words, a relatively pleasant day at l.a.x. ( laughter ) we'll be right back with senator kamala harris.

12:06 am
just-- you know, i met a woman in south carolina. there's a street there called lady street-- you know. you're from. >> stephen: there are a lot of streets in south carolina. i don't know if i know that street. >> so lady street, okay, and every merchant, with the exception of one, is a woman. and i meet this one woman and she has a vintage clothing store. why? she grew up in foster care. for a time she was homeless. she made an incredible success out of herself, and she had never until then worn clothes firsthand. so she decided to have this vintage store where the proceeds go to young women in the community who are going to job interviews for the first time or going to work and they don't have suits and clothes. incredible. incredible kind of people. ( applause ) i'm telling you. >> stephen: today, now, donald trump said he won't work with dems until all investigations end. >> yeah. >> stephen: you're on the
12:07 am
senate intelligence committee. are you going to end-- are you guys going to end the investigation? >> no. >> stephen: okay. ( cheers and applause ) >> but can we talk for a moment about this? let's just talk fair moment about this. so he's going to hold america's infrastructure hostage, right? >> stephen: yes. >> over the issue of the investigation. >> stephen: right. >> so let me just tell you again, traveling the country. stephen, almost half of american families are $400 unexpected expense away from complete upheaval, right. $400 unexpected expense-- could be the car breaks down or a hospital bill you didn't see coming. do you know how much it costs to get four tires in america these days, on average? >> stephen: it depend on the tires. >> about $400. why do people need new tires? because the roads are falling apart. ( applause ) so when we talk about-- if you want to talk about a representative government, and shouldn't leaders lead on behalf of the people as opposed to
12:08 am
self-interest. >> stephen: right. >> then just connect all the dots. right now, families are suffering -- >> stephen: okay, but let me take the devil's point of view here. >> okay. >> stephen: if that's true, then just pause the investigations and get the infrastructure done. he'll still be corrupt later. >> no, this is a false choice. we cannot abandon our democracy for the sake of appeasing somebody who is completely focused on his interests only. ( applause ) >> stephen: now, one-- one of the-- one of the investigations that has him particularly in high dudgeon is the senate intele committee, as i said before, that's you're on. >> that's right. >> stephen: the chairman of the committee, senator burr of north carolina. >> yes. >> stephen: he issued a subpoena for don jr. >> correct. >> stephen: which surprised a lot of people. because not a lot of republicans have... uhm, a spine. ( laughter ) and they worked out a deal where
12:09 am
don's going to come in, right? come in-- you guys are going to talk to him behind closed doors and limited time, something like that. what, you know, what-- it's not closed doors here. what would like to ask him? >> i think what everyone here is going to want to know is when he took that meeting-- one, why didn't he walk out when it became clear that there was a foreign adversary who was trying to manipulate and interfere in the election of the president of the united states. >> stephen: i can answer that one. >> why didn't he walk out? >> stephen: i can answer that one because he knew it was a foreign adversary giving dirt on opponent from the email before he ever went in he pupon he walked in knowing what it was. >> i know, i agree with you. the question becomes then, "who did you tell? and did you tell your father?" >> stephen: what about trump tower? because he testified, "i didn't really know, didn't really know." >> we need to be all of that. and i agree with you, we need to know all of that. >> stephen: do you think you're going to get answers?
12:10 am
>> look -- i-- you know what, though, bob mueller gave us answers. there are in that report at least 10 specific incidents where he know that there was obstruction of justice. it is my firm belief that the only reason he did not return an indictment is because of that office of legal counsel opinion-- and it's an opinion, not the law, an opinion. >> stephen: he cites it. >> right, and he cites it. and i think on this subject what we should do is rely on those almost-1,000 former members of the united states department of justice who have essentially said, but for that memo, that opinion, an indictment would have been returned, that the evidence here is sufficient to sustain an indictment. >> stephen: are you guys going to talk to mueller? >> we're trying-- i hope that we can get him in front of us. but you know even if he does not come in front of us, there is sufficient base, there is a sufficient basis ton that there is enough there to returnab indictment but for that office of legal counsel's opinion. >> stephen: what do you think of chairman burr's leadership so
12:11 am
far? >> you know, i think that-- i serve on many committees. i'm on judiciary, i'm on intelligence, homeland security, and budget. of all of committees, and frankly, of all of the open conversations i've had since i've been in the senate, the most bipartisan thus far is the work that happens in the senate intelligence committee. and, frankly, i think part reason is when we get in that skiff-- which is the nameave very tightly sealed and closed door room-- you know, people take off their jackets and have real conversations about national security in a way that always should occur in a nonpartisan way. so that has been-- ( applause ) so that has been the way that it has worked so far, and it is my hope that it will continue to be nonpartisan in the way we conduct ourselves. >> stephen: we have to take a little bit of a break. but don't go away, we'll be right back with more of senator kamala harris. ♪ ♪ ( applause ) ♪ ♪

12:16 am
>> stephen: hey, everybody, welcome back. we're here with presidential candidate senator kamala harris. now nancy pelosi, speaker pelosi says trump's obstruction could be impeachable. >> yeah. >> stephen: you believe that charges of impeachment should be brought against the president. >> no, i believe that the process should begin to do an investigation to determine ultimately whether impeachment should happen. >> stephen: okay. is there a difference between that and the investigations that
12:17 am
are going on now? >> well, yeah, because it would be congress actually initiating a process toward impeachment -- >> stephen: an impeachment inquiry? >> yes, an impeachment inquiry where at the end they would produce findings and a recommendation. and if there be an impeachment proceeding obviously it would be sent over to the senate. stephen, i will say this, i have called and do believe that process should begin. i think there's a very good reason to do it. and i agree with nancy pelosi's statement today. i will also say that it is also fair that we-- we are realistic that the senate is not going to impeach this guy. we don't-- we don't control the majority. and i have no reason to believe-- and there's been no evidence on the senate side that they're going to actually do the right thing. >> stephen: is there an extra power that comes with starting an impeachment inquiry? in other words, are there requests for information, subpoenas, are they less deniable for a president if the impeachment-- what is the value then of starting the impeachment
12:18 am
inquiry? >> part of the value is preserving the-- the-- this construct of our democracy that the founders imagined, which is that we have three independent coequal branches of government where there should be checks and balances. and the united states congress has a responsibility to conduct itself in a way that we-- we pursue these inquiries and determine if this president has in fact obstruct justice and violated the law. so it's about maintaining the integrity of our democracy and the design of it. but i will say, that being said, we should fight for that and fight for the value of the construct and our democracy. but the reality also is that at the end of this, the senate probably will not vote to impiech him, which means that he'll probably prance around and say, "see, witch hunt, witch hunt. they went after me and didn't get me." so we have to also balance, right-- this is a reality. >> stephen: i never imagined him prancing before, but thank you for that-- thank you for that image. ( laughter ). >> well -- >> stephen: you unveiled a new policy proposal this week.
12:19 am
your equal pay plan. >> yes. >> stephen: what's the plan-- ( applause ) because-- what's the plan? because i remember obama on day one signed lily ledbetter act. >> which was amazing. >> stephen: what would be covered by that. >> president obama, together with lily ledbetter and it was historic what he did and it was the first bill he signed which is really was a strong statement. and i want to take it to the next step and this is that when women-- they are required-- the law says that women and men should be paid equally for equal work. but what we know is that in america today, women, on average, are paid 80 cents on the dollar of what men are paid for the same work. african american women, 61 cents on the dollar. latinas, 53 cents on the dollar. and these are actually not debatable points. >> stephen: so this is not hours worked on average over a work week. this is hour for hour? >> yeah, and for the same work.
12:20 am
or it could be annual salary, but it's for the same work, what are people being paid? so what i am saying is this, instead of requiring that woman, who, let's say she's hanging out at the water cooler during break, talking to her male colleague, who works in the cubicle next to her doing the same work she does, and he starts talking about what he got his kids for christmas, and it is clear to her that he is making more money than she is, right? what is she going to do? she's not going to ask him how much he is getting paid. he probably won't tell her. she'll probably go to the supervisor and say, "how are we getting paid?" and the supervisor will probably say something like i can't tell you about salaries. she's sniffing around and has no sense of it and has no access to information. maybe she files a complaint with the e.e.o.c. and she will have to go through a long process. her colleagues will probably find out about it. she will probably receive the wrath of her colleagues, and maybe it goes nowhere with that complaint. maybe she has to come out of pocket to hire a lawyer to sue to get equal pay. what i'm saying is instead of
12:21 am
her having to go through that process, let's put the onus on the corporations to prove they are paying people equally, and shift the burden from her to the corporation. and in my opinion, good business is about good business. if you are conducting the business in a way that you are proud, then you should be abl to tell us if you're paying people equally. and i'm also requiring that they will have to post on their website whether they have been certified by the e.e.o.c. s is paying people equally or not. you know, like in a restaurant-- ( cheers and applause ) so, right? >> stephen: like a health rating. >> yes. >> stephen: senator, thank you so much for being here. senator kamala harris, everybody! candidate for president of the united states. we'll be right back with the star of "booksmart," kaitlyn dever. new love. we have a fragrance for that.
