tv   The Late Show With Stephen Colbert  CBS  December 30, 2019 11:35pm-12:37am PST

11:35 pm
colbert is next. >> the news continues streaming on cbsn bay captioning sponsored by cbs >> the white house continues to downplay president trump's unexpected and unscheduled doctor's visit, and, now, there are new questions surrounding that mysterious checkup on saturday. >> good evening, i'm dr. bill farblah, chief of gastroenterology. i wanted to dispel any rumors about the president's unscheduled medical appointment at walter reed hospital. it was a routine procedure. he is fine-- though, during the exam, it was determined that the president had a blockage in his lower g.i. tract, when it was discovered that several republican members of congress had lodged their heads in his-- uh-- quid pro quo hole. ( laughter ) we immediately attempted to remove the g.o.p. congressmen's heads, but, once out, they would hear more ukraine testimony and would dive back in there.
11:36 pm
situation was much like puppies in a box. eventually, using forceps, we were successful in extracting the heads of jim jordan and devin nunes, and, as we speak, we are sending in a team of specialists to try to locate lindsey graham-- he's way up there. ( laughter ) ♪ ♪ >> announcer: it's "the late show" with stephen colbert! tonight, kicking off new zealand week with prime minister jacinda ardern. plus stephen welcomes adam driver and musical guest the 1975, 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: howdy!
11:37 pm
from downtown! hello, friends! ( cheers and applause ) fantastic! hello! thank you so much! ( piano riff ) welcome to "the late show." i'm your host stephen colbert. ( cheers and applause ) trump's impeachment is really heating up, it's gearing up, it's ramping up. the gears are all hot from all the ramping they're doing. there are live hearings tomorrow, wednesday, and thursday. the fate of our nation hangs in the balance, and that's why, all week, we'll have complete coverage of... my amazing trip to new zealand! ( cheers and applause ) unbelievable! once in a lifetime! >> jon: yeah, the great escape. >> stephen: every night, we'll share a different story from my trip. tonight, my fascinating day with new zealand prime minister, jacinda ardern. why new zealand? why did i go to new zealand?
11:38 pm
'cause it is as far away as i could get from our news without getting pecked to death by penguins. ( laughter ) but first, i'll catch you up on all the details of trump's sticky wicket in tonight's edition of "don and the giant impeach." ( cheers and applause ) >> mommy, take me home. >> stephen: for those just joining us, it looks like donald trump withheld military aid to ukraine to try to pressure that country into announcing a bogus investigation of joe biden. and i'm happy to say, people understand that simple story. in a new poll, 70% of americans say trump's actions tied to ukraine were wrong. it's nearly impossible to get 70% of americans to agree on anything. ( cheers and applause ) 70%! >> jon: that's a lot of people. >> stephen: the only other one i can think of is "don't eat taco bell before getting on a rollercoaster." ( laughter )
11:39 pm
but here's a weird part of this poll: of that 70% who think trump's actions are wrong, the number who don't want him removed from office is 19%. that means one in five americans admire the wrongness. ( laughter ) explains his new campaign slogan, "trump 2020: let's throw cinderblocks off the overpass!" it looks like the biggest day is going to be wednesday? okay, wednesday, when congress will hear from u.s. ambassador to the e.u. and lord bald-emort, gordon sondland. sondland is in deep. during a meeting at the white house, according to a source in the room, sondland "demanded ferociously, that the ukrainians open the biden investigations." sondland "got very emotional," adding that "there was lots of yelling." a temper tantrum in the white house? do you expect me to believe that a man who looks like this is a giant baby? ( laughter ) jim, that photo's got to be doctored. can we see the original? ( laughter )
11:40 pm
there you go. there you go. of course, the biggest sondland slip-up was when he called donald trump from a public restaurant in kiev, where several witnesses at the table heard trump over the phone demanding an investigation of biden. that's a direct link. now, on friday, the house heard from one of those witnesses, counselor for political affairs in ukraine and boyfriend confident that build-a-bear was the gift you wanted, david holmes. holmes confirmed that he indeed did overhear sondland's phone call, and added this colorful detail: in the call, he heard sondland tell trump, "president zelenskiy loves your ass." ( laughter ) oh, who doesn't? jimmy, give us a taste! mm-mmm! ( applause ) yeah! that's like two hams stuffed in a surgical glove. ( laughter )
11:41 pm
or a plastic tablecloth full of rice pudding. like two loaves of poppin' fresh microwaved in a christening gown. holmes' testimony also showed that trump's priority was not our national security, but investigating the bidens. trump even asked sondland: (as trump) "so, he's gonna do the investigation?" to which sondland replied "he's gonna do it," adding that zelensky will do "anything you ask him to." (as trump) "anything? is this like a genie situation? then i want unlimited wishes. and unlimited popcorn shrimp." ( laughter ) the other big testimony on-- friday? friday-- came from former ambassador to ukraine and current ambassador to the matrix, marie yovanovitch. yovanovitch is a decorated-- ( cheers and applause ) yes! plug into the machines!
11:42 pm
yovanovitch is a decorated diplomat with a 33-year career who was ousted after a smear campaign involving rudy giuliani. and if there's one thing rudy giuliani knows, it's how to destroy a reputation. ( laughter ) so far just his, but he burned that mother to the ground. now-- ( laughter ) burn this mother out! on friday, while yovanovitch was testifying before congress, trump tweeted at her, "everywhere marie yovanovitch went turned bad. she started off in somalia, how did that go? then fast forward to ukraine, where the new ukrainian president spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him." (as trump) "now she's back in the united states, and the president is being impeached. coinky-dink? way to go, marie." ( laughter ) now, when this tweet landed-- in
11:43 pm
the middle of the testimony, again, she is testifying, he is attacking her-- chairman adam schiff read it into the record and asked the ambassador for her reaction. >> ambassador yovanovitch, as we sit here testifying, the president is attacking you on twitter. the president in real time is attacking you. what effect do you think that has on other witnesses' willingness to come forward and expose wrongdoing? >> well, it's very intimidating. >> stephen: wow, he's reading trump's nasty comment right to her on live tv. it's like he's the andy cohen of congress. (as andy cohen) "ambassador yovanovitch, the president just publicly attacked you. i'm going to hand you this glass of chardonnay and ask, is there anyone whose face you'd like to toss it in while yelling, 'you don't know me, bitch'?" ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) okay? okay? ( piano riff )
11:44 pm
the house also released a transcript of the testimony from advisor to vice president pence and stormtrooper looking for her helmet, jennifer williams. williams evidently was listening in on the july 25 phone call with the president of ukraine, and testified that trump's behavior struck her as "unusual and inappropriate." well, which is it, jennifer? because, for trump, inappropriate is the usual. ( cheers and applause ) trump attacked this witness too: "tell jennifer williams, whoever that is, to read both transcripts of the presidential calls and see the just released 'ststement' from ukraine." yes! yes, jennifer! yes, read the "ststement" before
11:45 pm
you testify against the prsprstent! ( laughter ) now, not all the news this weekend was about impeachment. on saturday, the president made an unscheduled trip to the hospital. the secretive nature of the visit prompted a lot of speculation. who knows the real reason, but trump wouldn't be the first president to hide health issues: f.d.r. hid polio, eisenhower hid a heart attack, and lincoln hid his secret skull reduction surgery. ( laughter ) and i am sincerely-- that's why he wore the hat. that was before he had the surgery, so he had to wear the hat to cover up the-- i don't quite understand, either. ( laughter ) i am sincerely relieved to say that it looks like there's nothing wrong with the president's health. i might not be trump's biggest fan, but i don't want him to leave the white house feet first. i want handcuffs first. ( cheers and applause ) now-- ( piano riff )
11:46 pm
press secretary stephanie grisham later explained that trump decided to get parts of his physical done early because he had a "free weekend" in washington. okay, that's the saddest thing i've ever heard. (as trump) "let's see, i have the day off, i could spend it with my children? not really my thing. my wife? no, she hates me. my friends? all in jail. ah, tell you what, i'll just go to the hospital and have them stick me with needles, just to feel something." ( laughter ) grisham went on, emphasizing that trump is, "as healthy as can be." ( laughter ) okay, but how healthy can he be? he's a 73-year-old insomniac who eats nothing but fast food, who's afraid to go down stairs. (as trump) "watch out for stairs. they're like ramps with teeth."
11:47 pm
>> jon: whoa. >> stephen: it's true. ( laughter ) now, trump took to twitter to defend his totally normal surprise checkup, saying he went to walter reed and "began phase one of my yearly physical." okay, physicals don't happen in phases. ( laughter ) everybody has them. i just had one. my doctor never said, "okay, drop your pants, bend over, try to relax. i'll be back in six months." ( laughter ) all right? yep. yep. ( piano riff ) stay there. stay there. ( applause ) ( piano riff ) trump finished his tweet with, "will complete next year." ( laughter ) yes, trump's first part of his physical is going to be such a hit that next year, they're coming out with a sequel: "colonoscopy 2: 2 blocked 2 scope." ( laughter ) we've got a great show for you tonight. adam driver is here.
11:48 pm
but when we return, we're off to new zealand for my exclusive hanging out with prime minister jacinda ardern! stick around!

( cheers and applause ) now, prime minister ardern, i'm happy to say, she's come on the show a couple of times already now, and invited me to visit new zealand both times. and the second time, she said, she'd pick me up at the airport! so recently, i got on a plane to see if she meant it. ♪ ♪ after 16 and a half hours, i arrived at new zealand's aued r pre misteracckinpo airlaitwhw

12:02 am
that was inspiring to those of us who live in the united states who deal with gun violence. how did you do it? and i'm asking, you know, for 350 million friends of mine. >> well, you know, we're pragmatists in new zealand and, so, when it was described to me the weapons that were used and how easily they were obtained, my immediate reaction was that can't stand, it has to change. and, so, you know, i needed the votes of three political parties to be able to do it, but i don't think i would even need to ask them if they thought the same thing. so i just went out there and said "our laws will change" and, in the end, every single member of parliament except for one voted for that change. >> stephen: we've gotten to the point where, in america, we basically-- we have a feeling that the gun laws can't be changed. >> yeah.
12:03 am
>> stephen: was there no resistance to it? >> there were some people who weren't happy about the change, don't get me wrong. we turned something that they had legally purchased into something illegal, so we gave them the ability to bring them in and we id fpa tmahetem.eed iw zealand, we may not have snakes but we have a lot of things that kill our wildlife, but we identified what guns were legitimately needed for those things, and those were kicked out, they still remain, and we've removed the ones that are designed to take people's lives en masse. >> stephen: well, it's another reason to love new zealand. prime minister, jacinda, thank you so much for inviting me to your beautiful country. >> thank you. >> stephen: and good luck getting rid of me. >> please stay for some food, we'll have a barbecue or something. you're most welcome. >> stephen: oh, that would be fantastic. last chance for peanut brittle. >> i think i'm good, thank you. >> stephen: i accepted her invitation and joined the prime minister and her partner clarke for a new zealand state dinner of sausages and white bread.
12:04 am
so we have the prime minister, we have the first grill master, we have the future possible president of new zealand and lorde. >> yeah. >> stephen: so nice to meet you. >> you, too. how are you? ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: i'm surprised i never met you before because you're famous and i'm famous and that's generally how people meet. there's something i always wanted to ask you. >> okay. >> stephen: would you care for some peanut brittle? would you like some peanut brittle? >> sure, thank you. >> it's something, i think it must be a tradition. >> stephen: yeah, it is, yeah. >> thank you. >> stephen: you're welcome. thank you very much. >> yeah.

12:11 am
am so glad that i saw your movie before you're here so i can just briefly but passionately gush at you and to scarlett johansson. i can't wait to talk to her. she's coming on in a couple of weeks to talk about it. it's a hilarious, heartbreaking and, as i said backstage, it's a courageous movie. you lay your heart so bare in this, and if you can tell the people out there, if you don't mind, tell them a little bit about your character charlie and scarlett's character nicole. what is their relationship? >> the relationship at the start of the movie and before the movie is they actually met in performance. she saw him at a site-specific play that she says, and he's a theater director, she's kind of his muse in a way, they have a very kind of low-budget, low- rent theater company that they work on together here in new york, and they-- noah bombbach the director wanted to tell the story of their relationship from the beginning through the lens
12:12 am
of a divorce, so it's a love story through the scope of its ending, that's what he set out to do and what it's about. then it gets into, you know, the technical part of the performance in a way of divorce, how that can be, you know, regular human interactions that are somehow suddenly put in lenses or boxes and used against you in court, how it can be very impersonal. two people who start out with the best of intentions of trying to separate as friends suddenly get, you know, overrun by other people's opinions and other people's agendas and you kind of just desperately want them to find that kernel of the thing of what they loved about each other to begin with. hat trick of telling a story through a very specific lens, but i think it's very relatable to anyone, not necessarily if you've even been through a divorce, but if you've been in
12:13 am
love even or experienced love transitioning into something else you weren't prepared for. >> stephen: for a movie that is largely involved with their divorce, it's a love story. >> yeah, very much, told at the end. >> stephen: and you see how much they're in love with each other, in ways that they don't necessarily know about each other but you as the audience know, you can see ways they feel about each other at times. especially from the beginning of the movie, without giving anything away, that come to fruition late in the movie. do you think that it's only through the endings that we can understand sort of the beginnings of our relationships? >> sometimes, yeah. i mean, there's even a great line that's in there is that, you know, he's doing all of these things now he didn't do in the relationship and he has a meeting with this lawyer, alan alda plays the lawyer-- >> stephen: who is fantastic. >> yes, who is amazing, and he says "being a better husband in divorce." when everything's taken away
12:14 am
from you, when you know someone on such a molecular level, you know, you're so used to-- and then that transitions into something else, it can be a very violent feeling. and things you took for granted you have to look at a different way, and that can be tough for anybody. so, in that sense, yeah, you're more open because you're aware now that you've lost something. that you took for granted that was always just going to be there. >> stephen: as soon as the movie was over, i looked up to see whether you are married. >> yeah. >> stephen: and you are. >> i am, yeah. >> stephen: and i don't want to ask any questions about your marriage because your marriage is one thing and the movie is a totally different marriage, and i don't want to conflate the two, but i certainly watched the movie thinking, "what would i do in this situation?" it made me question ways in which i'm a good and bad husband >> oh, sure. >> stephen: by watching it.
12:15 am
it's a relatable series of indictments and celebrations of their relationship. >> yeah. >> stephen: could you have played this part if you didn't know what it was like to be married? >> i think so. i think-- it's hard to-- it's hard to say because i didn't do it the other way. but i don't know even know that you... in a way, it's my job as an actor to tell the story of the script. my relationship to it in a way is immaterial, in a sense. i wouldn't even say that it's my job to have a feeling. it's my job to tell the story of what it is, and it's the audience's job to have a feeling.eelings you wa but it doesn't necessarily mean heth ang tha ft's being tehalegrap d thllrough the story. then you're just watching someone emote and that's, i think, uninteresting. >> stephen: yeah, it would be like me asking, "do you think you could have played kylo ren if you couldn't use the force?" ( laughter ) >> right, right. like, i've never been in space but i can imagine that it's like this. >> ste.yo: phahye homework easier.

you don't necessarily have to be a parent to play a parent, but there is something that, oh, i don't have to do that work, necessarily. it does help but, again, it's it's for the audience to get the story. >> stephen: well, we have to take a little bit of a break, but don't go away. when we come back, i'll ask him about this little art house film called "star wars" coming up in december. we'll be right back with more adam driver. stick around! png ♪ oh, oh, oh, ozempic®! ♪ (announcer) once-weekly ozempic® is helping many people with type 2 diabetes like james lower their blood sugar. a majority of adults who took ozempic® reached an a1c under 7 and maintained it. my a1c is under 7!
