tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  November 27, 2019 11:35pm-12:37am PST

11:35 pm
have a wonderful, safe and happy things. captioning sponsored by cbs >> hi, i'm fox news anchor chris wallace. you may know me from your parents' tv when you go home to do laundry. i'm used to moderating presidential debates and political roundtables, but there is nothing more combative than the thanksgiving dinner table. so i'm here to share my thanksgiving dinner moderating tips to keep things from get too rowdy at this year's family gathering. the loudist person in the family should be seated next to the quietest person in the family, and that's the garden gnome in the backyard. ( laughter ) if your family is fighting about whether to serve roasted turkey or fried turkey, just go ahead and serve them "wild turkey." do not let family leave the table without saying, "excuse me," or "freedom of the press is the cornerstone of our democracy."
11:36 pm
can't decide who has to clean up after thanksgiving dinner? do the smart thing-- just move. happy thanksgiving. >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, talkin' turkey. plus, stephen welcomes ll cool j, and chef jose andres 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 ) >> stephen: hey! thanks is tomorrow! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey, everybody. welcome, one and all, to "the
11:37 pm
late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. ( cheers and applause ) it's thanksgiving eve! i hope you have all hung up your stockings and filled them with gravy. now, as i've said, thanksgiving is tomorrow. thanksgiving is tomorrow. if you're traveling today, we wish you a safe trip. but it could be a crowded one, because over thanksgiving, a record 31.6 million passengers will travel on u.s. airlines, and you're gonna see all their feet. ( laughter ) right on the armrest, right there. but check the weather, because a couple of big storms are expected to blast the west coast and the midwest, and key airport hubs could see major delays. but do not worry. because there's no reason you can't have a perfectly good thanksgiving eating "hudson news" almonds while charging your phone in the "pet relief" area. okay. yeah. ( applause ) you gotta make do. >> jon: come on! >> stephen: love the one you're with. >> jon: yeah, that's right.
11:38 pm
>> stephen: now, if you're packing, there's good news: according to the t.s.a., you can bring your thanksgiving turkey on an airplane. just tell them it's your emotional support meat. ( laughter ) okay, you gotta get the vest. you gotta get the little got to get the little vest. as for other thanksgiving foods, "pie or cookies are allowed right in your carry-on," gravy and cranberry sauce can go in your checked luggage," and corn pudding can go directly to hell. ( laughter ) and this thanksgiving, there are a bunch of democrats vying for a chance to carve up the white house turkey. and i'll tell you all about it in tonight's "doing it donkey style." >> america is better than this! >> stephen: kick 'em, donks! this week, the democratic field picked up yet another candidate: billionaire and former new york mayor, michael bloomberg. now, if you don't live in new york, you may not be familiar with bloomberg. also, if you don't live in new york, you've never seen a fully
11:39 pm
naked man screaming at a discarded television on your way to drop off your kid at school. but as every new yorker knows, bloomberg doesn't exactly have an immaculate track record. take his stop-and-frisk policy, which disproportionately targeted black and latino men. now, the mayor's defenders will remind you that bloomberg immediately recognized that this was the wrong thing to do and apologized for it-- a week ago. ( laughter ) he took a long, hard look at his past decisions, did some agonizing re-appraisal, and realized that in his heart, he'd really like to be president. now bloomberg has also hit some bumps it the past when it comes bumps it the past when it comes to talking about women. see, he got super-rich by selling a special line of computer terminals to stock and back in the 80s during the sales pitch, he claimed the machine will do everything, including oral sex, adding, "i guess that puts a lot of you girls out of business."
11:40 pm
now, obviously, that's just an awful joke, and he did not mn it lit. but i'm guessing at least one finance bro had to find that out the hard way. elsewhere, elsewhere, elsewhere on the campaign trail, our old favorites are doing what they do best: shaking their money-makers. bernie was in new hampshire this weekend, and here's how he started his speech. >> the first thing i'm going to do is take off my jacket. >> stephen: (as bernie) "the second thing i'm going to do is press play on this boomed box and ask if the bachelorette has been a naughty, naughty girl." but it was at the after-party when things got really exciting, because bernie took to the dance floor and was truly adorable. check it out. ♪ ♪ ♪ the way you do the things you do the way you do the things do ♪
11:41 pm
>> stephen: bernie, just because you've had heart trouble, doesn't give you the right to melt mine. ( laughter ) then-- then, there's news from the campaign of former vice president and man learning that the diner distribute have the soup he likes, joe biden. biden is still leading by double digits, nationally, but he has been slipping in the polls in iowa. but he's trying to get back into the game. we recently learned that last month, biden said this to supporters: "i'm asking you to take a look-- i'm asking for your help. commit to caucusing for me on february the fourth." only problem. the caucuses are february third. doesn't matter. doesn't matter. that's fine. what matters is the general election, and joe biden wants you to vote on november 35! you walk into that voting booth, you ignore all the buttons with the floor numbers.
11:42 pm
just shout "joe biden" at the ceiling until the nice fireman comes and rescues you! next up-- next up-- ( applause ) next up on the donk stonk, billionaire former hedge fund manager and artist explaining the secret behind his turkey portrait, tom steyer. ( laughter ) stier-- stier-- some people here were children once. steyer has spent over $50 million of his own money on his campaign so far and is still only polling at 1.2%. at a recent event, he was asked about his low odds of winning the nomination. here's what he said: >> i know this is going to sound a little strange, kenna. i don't want to be president. ( laughter ) >> stephen: have i got some good
11:43 pm
news for you. ( applause ) you do, you don't. either you do or you don't. but there is one rich dude who isn't running for president. yesterday, we heard from papa john's founder and madame tussauds elvis statue that was left in a hot garage, john schnatter. schnatter, you might remember, was fired from papa john's last year after he used the "n" word on a conference call. oooh, schnatter really schnat the bed. ( laughter ) ever since, he's been trying to get back into the spotlight. this week, he appeared on a local kentucky news channel to voice concerns about the current state of papa john's pizza. >> i've had over 40 pizzas in the last 30 days, and it's not the same pizza. >> stephen: 40 pizzas in 30 days. move over, "angela's ashes," because this is now the saddest story ever told. so-- so--
11:44 pm
( applause ) peggy's pies. so what are schnatter's complaints with the company's new pies? >> it's not the same product. it just doesn't taste the same. the way they make the pizza, the way they're putting the pizza together, it's just not fundamentally sound to what makes a papa john's pizza a papa john's pizza. >> stephen: you're not at a great point in your life when you're able to notice the drop in quality of a $4 pizza. ( laughter ) "what? this isn't nearly as good as the pizza i normally eat while weeping in my car." ( laughter ) ♪ ♪ schnatter promises that you haven't heard the last of him. >> i would just say stay tuned.o >> stephen: he's right. i've eaten papa john's pizza ( laughter ) and there is always a reckoning.

11:50 pm
thanksgiving. tomorrow is thanksgiving. ( cheers and applause ) tomorrow is thanks. anyway, tomorrow is thanksgiving. and we've got a lot to be thankful for here at "the late show," starting with this book "whose boat is this boat? comments that don't help in the aftermath of a hurricane." this book was written, by accident, by donald trump. all of the words inside are things he actually said while touring the damage from hurricane florence. and thanks to our publishers, simon & schuster, all proceeds from the book go to disaster relief, like "world central kitchen," which was started by our guest tonight, jose andres. ( applause ) okay. if you want to help, pick up your copy today to help out, or check it out of the library for free, if you hate helping people. ( laughter ) which brings us to idaho's coeur d'alene library, which
11:51 pm
i do not have to tell you, was 2012's idaho library of the year. suck it, north bingham county public library! i don't mean that, north bingham county public library. you guys are the bomb! now, you might remember, a couple of weeks ago, i told you that an unknown troublemaker in coeur d'alene was taking books and hiding them around the library so patrons couldn't find them. now, they haven't been able to catch the culprit in the act, despite the library's new campaign, "if you see something, whisper something." ( laughter ) and here's the specific thing about this. the bandit, evidentally, targeted left-leaning books, particularly anything that was critical of president trump, and that included "whose boat is this boat?" now, obviously, from your-- you, you agree, we couldn't let that happen. so a couple of weeks ago, we came up with a solution. i don't believe anyone should mess with library books.
11:52 pm
so we've decided to help out the readers of coeur d'alene by sending them an unhide-able edition of "whose boat is this boat?" come on out! there you go! ( applause ) good luck hiding this one, sucker. that book, which is an actual, functional, actual book, is three feet by four feet-- almost as big as the menu at the cheesecake factory. and i'm proud to say that our special unhideable version of "whose boat is this boad?" has made its way to the coeur d'alene public library. and we've got some exclusive footage. here we've got a few librarians carrying the book in and unpacking it. they had some trouble figuring out where to shelf the book. so they brought the book over for a little story time. after which, one of the kids figured out it could be used as a tent. ( laughter )
11:53 pm
so not only does this book fund hurricane relief. this edition can also serve as temporary shelter! finally, a couple of young readers decided to check the book out, then lugged it out to their car to take it home. fun fact: that copy of the book weighs 27 pounds, so if those kids do a book report on it, it counts as both "language arts" and "p.e.," although-- ( applause ) although, they should make sure to get it back to the library on time. because any late fees incurred with the oversized edition must be paid via giant novelty check. and coeur d'alene's library.tty? >> anytime a book is censored, a million more people want to read it. and, so, thanks. >> stephen: well said. well said, betty!
11:54 pm
so pick up your copy of "whose boat is this boat" today, wherever normal-sized books are sold. thank you, coeur d'alene public library! happy thanksgiving! thanks is tomorrow. we'll be right back with ll cool j. oh! oh! oh! ♪ ozempic®! ♪ (announcer) people with type 2 diabetes are excited about the potential of once-weekly ozempic®. in a study with ozempic®, a majority of adults lowered their blood sugar and reached an a1c of less than 7 and maintained it. oh! under 7?

12:01 am
i'm honored to be a part of it. it will be cool to host ask just have a good time and get out there. it's not about me. it's about the show. we're going to have some fun and, you know, kennedy center honors, let's do it. >> stephen: i hosted a few time-- i host aid few times and it's like a whole weekend. it's like a wedding. >> you go to the state department. >> stephen: that room at the state department. >> i remember sitting at the table with james brown, and i'm sitting there having dinner with james brown. and it was just, like, you know, i kept leaning-- huh? i was leaning over a little bit. buit was an amazing, amazing feeling to jus you'r surdesout america for one second, right. we have our differences and a lot of us see the world with different threats and different things. but when you get past some of those threats and everybody thinks that threat is different, depending on where their viewpoint is, we really have an
12:02 am
amazing country, right? >> stephen: sure. >> and i think that-- ( applause ). >> yeah. and i think that, you know, me sitting there with james brown and just sitting in that room, it just-- you know, it showed me that anything is possible. i didn't say that there aren't systemic issues. i didn't say that there aren't certain things that certain people aren't held back, and certain doors certain people can't get in. we know there is things that exist in this country like that. but overall, i think that we've got a lot of up side, you know, doing this american thing. and we kind of got to, you know, not lose sight of that pup know what i mean? >> stephen: and that night when you go to the state department, it's so beautiful, because when you walk nthe first room you walk into, there is the actual treaty of paris. >> it's crazy. >> stephen: signed by thomas jefferson. there is the desk that he wrote declaration of independence on. >> actually, david rubenstein actually had a copy of it -- >> stephen: the president of the senate. >> yeah, yeah. he had a copy of the declaration of independence there, there, like, he had purchased. >> stephen: you can't help but
12:03 am
be moved by the entire thing. ip but, remember, freedom should be for all of us, right. and we have to, you know, all be free, right. and i think that's very important. and it's not about bitterness. it's not about trying to find something to be angry about. it's not about sticking your chest out just to be stick your chest out. but it's about finding that common ground, that common connection, and acting on that and injecting a little bit of love into that. and i think that we can kind of move forward. i'm not trying to be overly idealistic. i think it's something we need. >> stephen: i think yellism is good. you have to have a standard, you know. you hope to behave that way. >> absolutely. >> stephen: you started off when you were so young. here are you-- this is even when you first started. this is you at 17. and you've already-- you'd already been going for a couple years at this point. >> i can tell by the jewelry. yeah. >> stephen: you already-- >> i didn't start off with jewelry. >> stephen: you released your fien you w >> stephen: did your family
12:04 am
encourage you, or were they kind of baffled by the desire? >> well, you know, i had a family-- i had a grandmother who always tun, never leave it until it's done." and that sounded cute until i w" i ended up leaving the house. i slept on the train for a while, slept at friends' houses, jumping over roaches -- >> stephen: you weren't living at home because you prioritized your career and that was not understand. >> when i had 12, $1500 bucks to contribute, "come on in, baby!" all of a sudden i was, you know, salmon and grits, biscuits and rolls and, you know. so-- but, you know, it was' fun time. it was a fun time. >> stephen: did you ever think about quitting? >> you always-- yes, absolutely. listen, listen -- >> stephen: when did you stop thinkinthinking about quitting? >> you never stop thinking about quitting.
12:05 am
not if you're striving to be agreement and make your dreams a reality. there is nobody who is successful who has nev ou quitting. it's absurd to even imagine that. you know, one of the most-- that's-- that's why-- that's what it takes, right? it's powering through those times where you feel like you can't make it. it's powering through those times when you feel like you should just forget everything. >> stephen: but once you've made it, there's i can't stay at the standard i want to keep for myself. >> if you're not getting better, you're getting worse. making it, all that means is that you've achieved that goal. but if you want to live a full and rich life, when you achieve that goal, you need to set a new goal, right. there is no "making it." it's not like oh, you get a check and you made it. bill gates, phenomenal guy. he's done incredibly well with his life and the finance, he's still trying to find a cure for malaria. you set new goals. there's always going to be something because i think we're on this plan tote maximize our potential. we're not just here to either make a lot of money or be really
12:06 am
famous, and that's it. like, you want to maximize your potential, whatever it is you do. and i don't believe that dreams have deadline. i'll give you an interesting example. like, i was speaking to elena bunch roam throw upon the founder and the guy who built the national museum of african american history and culture in d.c. at the smithsonian. now that idea of building that museum is over a century old, over 100 years old. people have failed and tried and failed and tried. and this guy went in there and over the course of 11 years he was able to build this museum and take this museum to another level and now people from around the world can request gdown there and get an experience they probably never would have gotten and that's patrol to the american story because you want to know about all the people in america so you can have a better understanding of who we are as a country. when you look at that, that guy doing, that you than dreams don't have deadlines, and there's never an end. he had done many things that were really amazing prior to that. so that's an example. ( applause ). >> stephen: beautiful.
12:07 am
now, you're an actor on "ncis: los angeles", as everybody here knows. you started acting in the early 19s when upper already a successful hip-hop star. why did you want to become an actor, too? >> i didn't want to limit myself. i felt i had the ability. and i'll even be more candid. the first time i went to a record company i said, "i'm thinkinthinking about starting w record," and the guy started adjusting himself in the seat. i said i'm not going to be handcuffed to this game. i have to be able to do different things. i have the talent and the ability, with humiment, i have theitallant and the ability to do other things. i'm not going to be doing one thing just to be doing it you. >> stephen: have done it on "ncis: los angeles" is in its 11th season. i will ask you again the first question i asked you about this show: how much naval crime is there in los angeles?

we need to listen to them, so the first thing is the people. we need to listen to people because they know best what they want. ( applause ) and in our case, i always say that we don't meet, we don't plan. you know, when something like this happens in the bahamas, nobody had food and nobody had water. what do you have to plan? start cooking and start bringing water and start delivering as quick and as fast as you can. that's what we do. ( applause ). >> stephen: i know everybody out there-- people out there want to help. and i want you to tell them how they can help, other than, of course, buying "whose boat is this boat?." because we-- you generous people out there in the television audience have bought this boat to help survivors of disasters over the last year over $2 million with the-our friends at simon & schuster has been raise forward disaster relief, half a million of which has gone to "world central kitchen." and i want people ton you have generously raised $180,000 for

( applause ) that's it. go with us or go with anybody else. >> stephen: now, you've got the new book here. it's called "vegetables unleashed." ( laughter ) and you're encouraging people to cook vegetables. you say, "vegetables are sexy," and, clearly, the nigh book is trying to get that idea across. ( laughter ) because that's a very intimate, intimate relationship with those
12:18 am
carrots you've got going on there. >> i'm a married man. >> stephen: but you're not dead. >> but my wife allows me relationships with carrots, with other vegetables. i mean, those vegetables-- believe me, i have a mini farm in my home, and i'm fighting the squirrels and rabbits and the deer. and these vegetables tell me, "jose, we only want to be loved. we only want you to listen to us, spend some time with us." and that's what i do. i give them some love back. >> stephen: now, here's-- here's-- here's another photo from one of the chapters. i understand you wanted this to be-- you wanted this to be the cover of the book. >> this was very controversial. they called me want--" the blue eyes. the vegetables love my bli blueeyes. i tell you now. and i thought this picture was so much me. i mean, this one is, like, i have a late-night show or something. ( laughter ) >> stephen: don't insult

( laughter ) you know the cranberry is going to not be very good and too sweet. i mean, the gravy's going to be gummy, and you can put in the
12:20 am
spoon and it's going to hold up. i mean, do your best to lie to them. you pocker face. tell them how juicy it is. when i pronounce "juicy" nobody understands me, so. "juicy." that was supposed to be a joke, people. >> stephen: you pronounced it too well. >> finally i pronounce english well! yeah. all -- >> stephen: there's no hope to not have a dry turkey? >> no, there's no hope. i mean-- even if you watch all those newspapers and those food network type of shows that everything looks perfect, they are lying to you, people. ( laughter ) they-- they-- it's fake news. fake news. ( laughter ) ( applause ) i mean, president trump is t. it's a of feews out there! >> stephen: yes. it's not-- because if you end up having a juicy turkey in the photograph, that's fake juice.
