tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  November 5, 2019 11:35pm-12:37am PST

11:35 pm
the captioning sponsored by cbs >> the president's son donald trump jr. author of a new book. it comes out today. it's called "triggered: how the left thrives on hate and wants to silence us." ♪ ♪ >> don jr.'s book "triggered" has just been released, and audible has the exclusive audio book as read by don jr. himself. >> "triggered": copyrighted 2019. my dad is president. chapter one: i am born. then some other stuff happened. then my dad was president. >> how come my journal's dead? >> eric! get out of my room! i'm recording! >> each passage brought to life. >> my father, donald j. trump, a tweeter-in-chief. >> hey, don, i got my head stuck in my shirt armhole! >> i told you, the bigger hole
11:36 pm
is for your head! >> then what are these other holes for? >> you'll feel as if you're in the room with don jr. >> the leftest social-crats want to destroy my family, but they'll never destroy my love for my dad. >> this is horrible. >> dad, you didn't even read it! >> so visit audible and download "triggered" today. >> how come i don't get to talk a book? >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight: oops-a-perjury. plus, stephen welcomes elizabeth banks and senator amy klobuchar. 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, everybody! how are you! thank you! thank you! welcome, my friends. welcome, my friends, one and all, to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. you know-- ( cheers and applause ) i don't want to get out over my skis here, but i'm beginning to think this donald trump fella might get impeached, and i'll tell you why. because the democrats keep releasing these transcripts, and the evidence is pretty damning in that it's exactly what we already knew. and i'll tell you all about it in the latest "don and the giant impeach." >> my phone call was perfecto. >> stephen: today, the leader of the impeachment inquiry, adam schiff, dropped two more juicy transcripts. and they came with hot bonus
11:38 pm
tracks: brand new additional testimony from one of the officials at the center of the ukraine scheme, ambassador to the e.u., and jade kegel egg, gordon sondland. ( laughter ) sondland's original testimony was pretty good for trump. in fact, the president triumphantly tweeted, "the ambassador to the european union has already testified. he said there was no quid pro quo." ( laughter ) okay. there it is. ( applause ) no quid pro quo. that was two weeks ago. well, today, sondland amended his testimony-- much the same way that sherman amended atlanta-- and it turns out, yes, quid pro quo. now, why did sondland decide to revise his statements to congress? according to him, incriminating testimony from other witnesses, like bill taylor, "refreshed my
11:39 pm
recollection about certain conversations." ( as sondland ) "huh, you know what, that testimony really refreshed the old noodle. it made me remember one important detail: that i don't want to go to jail for perjury. i just-- bing!" specifically, sondland now recalls that he told a top ukrainian official that the country likely would not receive american military aid that had been appropriated by congress unless it publicly committed to the investigations president trump wanted. that is game, set, match. all she wrote. the fat lady has sung. other sports metaphors i really don't understand-- goodbye, mr. spaulding.
11:40 pm
take the rock to the rim. it's over now, so drink that big black cow and get outta here! ( cheers and applause ) thank you. sondland clearly knew that the arrangement was wrong. in response to a question about pushing the ukrainians to investigate biden, he said, "i believe i testified that it would be improper to do that." a congressperson followed up, "and illegal, right?" and sondland said, "i'm not a lawyer, but i assume so." well, let's check with "the late show's" legal analyst, max bialystok? can we assume that's illegal? >> assume away! >> stephen: now, we also got testimony from former special envoy to ukraine and paris tour guide spending way too much time talking to your wife, kurt volker. we already knew that the trump administration tried to insist that the ukrainian president make a public anti-biden
11:41 pm
message, but now we know kurt volker texted to a top ukrainian official the script they wanted zelensky to read to announce the burisma-biden/2016 election investigations. they sent over a damn script! ( clears throat ) ( as zelensky ) "ahem. according to this paper, i am not reading off of, 'we are going to investigate sleepy joe biden and son of sleepy joe for bigly corruption and why "the apprentice" went so downhill when arnold schwarzenegger took over. ( laughter ) military aid now, please, please for..." ( applause ) there was a weird moment-- as opposed to all the perfectly normal moments we're having lately-- a weird moment where sondland described a dinner party in brussels.
11:42 pm
sondland says, "the president of poland was there. jay leno was there. mr. kushner was there." the questioner asks, "did zelensky, as a comedian, get along well with jay leno?" and sondland answers, "he was honored to meet him. apparently, jay leno was his hero." anndd... i'm just being told that nbc has announced that jay leno is the new president of ukraine. sorry, conan. better luck next time! that's not all the bad stuff. there's also the testimony of former ambassador to ukraine and bad-ass librarian, marie yovanovitch. ukrainian officials warned her that rudy giuliani and his ukrainian cronies wanted to replace her as ambassador because they felt yovanovitch was hindering their push for investigations into biden and his son. and yovanovitch testified that she was warned to "watch my back." yeah, everyone around trump has to watch their back. sadly, no one warned kurt suzuki.
11:43 pm
( laughter ) now, yovanovitch-- >> jon: come on, kurt, you gotta watch that. >> stephen: when you're a star, they let you do it. yovanovitch also testified that she received calls from senior state department staff in the middle of the night telling her she'd "need to come home on the next plane," because they were concerned for her safety. but she later learned the real reason: they were worried she would be fired by tweet. oh, there's nothing worse than being fired by tweet, except maybe getting divorced by snap chat. kind of cute, kind of cute. last night, trump held a rally in kentucky to support kentucky governor and guy trying to get you to invest in his c.b.d. energy drink, matt bevin. bevin is up for reelection today, and he needs all the help he can get. h was the least-popular governor in the united states. kentucky hasn't had a leader
11:44 pm
this unpopular since governor jonathan forehead-vestigal twin von horse fondler. ( laughter ) at the rally-- at the rally, trump leaned in to bevin's unpopularity. >> now, he is difficult, i have to say. you know, maybe it'll cost him the election, but it's okay. look, he is such a pain. bit isn't that really what you want in a governor? ( applause ) that's what you want. he is such a pain in the ass, but that's what you want. ( applause ) >> stephen: you know things you don't like? don't you love them? but, hmmm, a pain in the ass that trump still wants you to vote for. could he be talking about himself? yes. well, check out his new campaign ad campaign.
11:45 pm
>> president trump is changing washington. creating six million new jobs. obliterating isis. he's no mr. nice guy, but sometimes it takes a donald trump to change washington. >> stephen: "and sometimes, when the lifeguard wants everyone out of the pool, he takes a dump right in the deep end. ( laughter ) he's no mr. hygiene, but sometimes it takes a pool pooper to get the job done. vote 'deep end turd 2020. keep on swimming.'" but-- deep end turd. come on in. the water's brown. ( laughter ) but reminding you how much you don't like him is just half of trump's reelection strategy. the other half is making the democrats seem even worse. >> the radical democrats are going totally insane. ( booing ) they want to obliterate the rule of law, drive out faith from the public square.
11:46 pm
silence you online, confiscate your guns. indoctrinate your children. destroy anne who holds traditional american values. erase our traditions, our culture, our history, and and our heroes. they want to subjugate you and break you to their will. >> stephen (as trump): "they want to bake a bald eagle into an apple pie and replace football with rap music. these radical democrats want to castrate truck nuts and make your dog a muslim. and on the fourth of july, they're gonna force all of mount rushmore to gay marry each other. ( cheers and applause ) no, no. it's going to happen. that's they want. abe's into it. " trump also went off on the media, complaining that they didn't give him enough credit for the raid that killed isis leader, abu bakr al-baghdadi.
11:47 pm
>> they can take what we did two weeks ago with the number-one terrorist in the world, and they make it look as bad as possible. in fact, i love dogs, but they gave the dog full credit. they didn't give me any. >> stephen: the only one who gave that dog any credit was you! you're the one who actually tweeted a photoshop of you awarding the dog a medal! listen, look-- if you really wanted the credit, maybe you should have tweeted this photo: ( cheers and applause ) thank you, conan. conan, right? at one point, trump congratulated a nominee for kentucky attorney general and got a little distracted by his own words. >> thank you, daniel. a star. a star is born. ( applause ) "a star is born"-- you ever see that movie?" a star is born. >> stephen (as trump):
11:48 pm
"i love 'a star is born.' ( to tune of "shallow" ) ♪ i'm off the deep end just read the transcript ♪ my favorite beef is ground i know they're hidin' dirt on joe biden we're close to impeachment now ♪ ( cheers and applause ) it's the final shot of the movie. the final shot of the movie. >> audience: stephen! stephen! stephen! stephen! >> stephen: as you could see in that footage, many trump supporters were wearing t-shirts last night that said "read the transcript." we did read the transcript! that's where we learned about trump pressuring ukraine! this is like if jeffrey dahmer
11:49 pm
got arrested while wearing a t-shirt that said, "check the fridge." we've got a great show for you tonight. elizabeth banks is here. but when we return, "meanwhile!" join us. oh, come on. flo: don't worry. you're covered.

( laughter ) so -- >> stephen: sure, yeah. >> jon: yeah >> stephen: folks, you know, i spend a lot of time over there meditatively folding the day's big stories into the flawless origami swan that is my monologue. but sometimes, i like to gather the crumpled up failed attempts, slivers of paper trimming and discarded magazine pages, then cut and paste them into the unhinged ransom letter of news that is my segment: >> meanwhile! ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: boom! "meanwhile," just when you least expect it! meanwhile, steve easterbrook has been fired as c.e.o. of mcdonald's after he engaged in a consensual relationship with an employee.
11:55 pm
you know, sometimes you need to look at the uneven power dynamic, acknowledge that this is a workplace, and just say to yourself ( mccdonald's jingle ) ♪ ba-da-ba-ba-ba please stop me from lovin' it ♪ speaking of mcdonald's, they are bringing back their retro happy meal toys. it's good news. but, sadly, that doesn't include the controversial mcbestos. ( laughter ) meanwhile, in space news, cookie dough and an oven are headed to the international space station, which nasa says is important for science, because "crew members may experience psychological and physiological benefits." it's all outlined in their groundbreaking new report, "humans like cookies." ( laughter ) ( applause ) meanwhile-- cookies. cookies. meanwhile, there's some news oul
11:56 pm
cover in my longrunning "meanwhile" sub-segment, "flight attention." ( bell rings ) meanwhile, delta airlines has come under fire for censoring a non-nude lesbian sex scene in olivia wilde's movie booksmart, and removing the words "vagina" and "genitals" and "for showing a version of the elton john biopic 'rocketman' without any references to elton john being gay." that version of rocketman is john wick. ( laughter ) ( applause ) meanwhile, the internet continues to innovate ways to make each other feel bad, and the latest sensation is to dismiss older people by saying, "ok boomer," as in baby boomers. it's a pretty good diss.
11:57 pm
still not as good as the boomer diss for millennials: "hey, we've permanently destroyed the housing market." well, one new york radio host is getting dunked on by the internet after this tweet went viral for its grade-a casual racism: "boomer is the n-word of ageism. being hip and flip does not make bigotry ok, nor is a derisive epithet acceptable because it is new." okay beamer. clearly-- ( cheers and applause ) technically i'm a boomer. clearly, this fella needs to play the hot new game "is this the new n-word?" no, it's not. thank you for playing. ( cheers and applause ) mean-finally, last night at the cowboys-giants game at metlife stadium, a cat ran onto the field and went viral for this run: >> he's at the 30, the 25, the
