11:35 pm
captioning sponsored by cbs >> according to "variety," in an episode of "harley quinn," d.c. comics vetoed an oral sex scene between batman and catwoman, saying, "you can't do that. you absolutely cannot do that. heroes don't do that." ( laughter ) >> it has just come to my attention that batman doesn't like to... shall we say eat at the "y"? >> outrageous. >> so here's our chance to make ourselves more popular than the hall of justice. any suggestions? >> we could think about a woman's pleasure more than our own. >> okay, good. what else? >> how about some gentle kissing before we stampede the nether regions.
11:36 pm
>> i like it. i like it. >> grodd say cuddle. >> good. >> we could listen more. >> great. what else? >> we're just spitballing-- or whatever the kids are calling it these days. >> meanwhile, at the hall of justice... >> so that's how we'll take care of the crab mutants of algon 7. what do you think, wonder woman? earth to wonder woman. what's gotten into you? you seem distracted. ( laughter ) >> it's "the late show," with stephen colbert. tonight, empire state of mind. plus, stephen welcomes dr. sanjay gupta. and rita moreno. featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now, live from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert!

11:38 pm
and it is great to be here with all these fully-vaccinated people. ( cheers and applause ) got the covid shot. they feel good. they're immortal. and they are not alone, because today, the state of new york officially announced a 70% vaccination rate. ( cheers and applause ) wooo! wooo, baby! 70%. that's the-- that's an important threshold. that is a c-minus. hell, yeah! and that's great. because we don't have to take summer school, i think. i think that's what that means also, because herd immunity is commonly considered to be achieved at somewhere between 70% to 80%, so new york state will lift "virtually all" covid restrictions, including remaining capacity limits, social distancing, and cleaning and disinfecting mandates. which means-- ( laughter ) which means that pizza rat can finally dine inside again. ( cheers and applause )
11:39 pm
now-- casual. a hawaiian shirt? have a hawaiian shirt on? to recognize the 70% milestone. the empire state building will be lit up in blue and gold lights. and, listen, keep in mind-- we only light up the empire state for truly historic occasions, like the rollout of blue m&ms, food allergy awareness week, and the westminster dog show. ( laughter ) do you know what that means to dogs? nothing because they can't see color. ( applause ) and this celebration-- this celebration does not stop with just the glowy skyscrapers. in july, new york city is holding a ticker-tape parade honoring frontline workers. ( cheers and applause ) yeah, perfect, perfect. i'll be there. will you be there? i'll be throwing right off the top of the theater here. to tell us about it, let's go to
11:40 pm
parade hype man, bill de blasio. >> we are going to have essential workers celebrated, groups of essential workers, floats for healthcare workers, first responders, educators municipal workers, transportation workers, grocery and bodega workers, delivery people. >> stephen: delivery people-- that's going to make lunch orders a little complicated. "okay, it says my salad is on a float coming down 6th avenue. ( laughter ) it's stuck between the rockettes and delta airlines presents michael buble." ( laughter ) other states are also vaxxed up and ready to party. today, california lifted nearly all of its pandemic restrictions, according to california governor and tech c.e.o. reassuring staff that while the startup is closing, he will remain rich, gavin newsom. in making the announcement, newsom summoned all the dignity for which california is renowned: ( music, minions making noise )
11:41 pm
>> and now please welcome to the stage, california governor gavin newsom. ( applause ) >> well, good morning, everybody. >> optimus prime: good morning, governor. >> was that optimus prime? >> optimus prime: it is a privilege to stand by your side. ( laughter ) ( applause ) >> stephen: ( as optimus prime ) "it was also a pleasure to dry hump your prius in the parking lot. ( laughter ) i'm into bot play. i will pay to have it cleaned." newsome california'd on: california is open again. ( music, minions making noises ) >> california has turned the page. let us all celebrate this remarkable milestone! ♪ ♪ ♪ >> stephen: california is back open for business! and nothing says "ready for
11:42 pm
opening without any unforeseen dire consequences" like the guy from "jurassic park"! ( laughter ) ( applause ) now-- it's going to be fine. it's going to be fine. ( cheers and applause ). >> jon: i remember that movie. >> stephen: hold on to your butts! up in vermont, they're crushing the injection game, becoming the first state to reach an 80% vaccine threshold. ( cheers and applause ) that's fantastic. it's amazing. they should be proud of themselves. it's all thanks to vermont's vaccine incentive program: anyone who doesn't get a shot gets a personal visit from bernie sanders. ( as bernie ) "knock-knock, ding-dong! open the damn door and show me your vaccination card! don't make me take off my mittens! and of and while i'm here i gotta ask. what's the soup situation in this house? i smell navy bean. do not lie to me!" we're all anticipating the showdown, america's joe biden versus russian president
11:43 pm
vladimir putin, seen here laughing at the last joke you'll ever tell. back in march, biden called putin a "killer," but yesterday, the definitely-a-murderer explained that all the bad things he is accused of, americans do, too. >> ( translated ): we have a saying: "don't be mad at the mirror if you are ugly. it has nothing to do with you personally. but if somebody blames us for something, what i say is, why don't you look at yourselves? you will see yourselves in the mirror, not us." >> stephen: my favorite sayings are the ones that are convoluted and need a lot of explanation. ( laughter ) reminds me of the beautiful needlepoint throw pillow we had growing up: "the early bird gets the worm, because he's there before the birds who are on time, and there's a fixed number of worms. you are not a bird, but you can learn from birds. they are valuable. in fact, if you can get one of them in your hand, that's worth two in the bush, which is a whole 'nother thing i don't even have time to stitch right now." ( cheers and applause )
11:44 pm
putin also offered up the ultimate insult to the president. >> ( translated ): president biden, of course, is radically different from trump, because president biden is a career man. he's spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics. >> stephen: ( as putin ) "unlike me, who spent 17 years as k.g.b. spy. you can't really understand the average man until you've sprayed nerve gas in his underwear." ( laughter ) but biden is not going to be intimidated. >> in a weekend interview, vladimir putin laughed at the suggestion that you had called him a killer. is that still your belief, sir, that he is a killer? ( laughs ) >> to answer the first question, ( laughs ) i am laughing, too. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: "i'm laughing too. i just remembered a bazooka joe comic from a gum i chewed in
11:45 pm
1972. what are you guys talkin' about?" speaking of enemies of the united states, there's some updates on the capitol rioters. and i'll tell you all about it in tonight's "seditionist round- up roundup." >> i am not a-mooooos-ed by this bull! >> stephen: first up in the round-up: new hampshire native and guy teaching a cryptocurrency class from his mom's basement, jason riddle. even though he was arrested back in february for his part in the riot, on sunday, riddle announced that he is running to serve as the house representative for new hampshire's second congressional district. ( booing ) but riddle did not know that: >> reporter: he says he's running against democrat annie kuster in the 2022 midterm elections. kuster is currently in her fifth term as a u.s. congresswoman representing new hampshire's second district. >> i thought ann was a state representative. >> reporter: no. so a state rep is in the state
11:46 pm
house in concord. >> yeah, that's what ann is! >> reporter: no, no, no. she's in washington. >> oh, well, i guess i gotta run against that then. ( laughter ) >> stephen: explains his campaign slogan: "jason riddle for... i dunno. your guess is as good as mine!" ( laughter ) ( applause ) next up-- ( applause ) a little research. >> jon: you gotta do your research. >> stephen: next up, remember this guy who put his feet on nancy pelosi's desk? ( booing ) you evidently do. ( laughter ) that's richard "bigo" barnett, a self-avowed white nationalist, who on sunday appeared on russian state tv. he hit-- he hit all the russian sunday shows: "oppress the nation," "murder the press," and, "fox news sunday." ( cheers and applause ) just kidding, chris. i love you, chris.
11:47 pm
please come back. next up, the first rioters to plead guilty to a misdemeanor are joshua and jessica bustle, a married couple from virginia. yes, for their wedding, they were registered at "the knot," also "the knoose." ( laughter ) the bustles-- wow. don't be mean to mike pence, steve! good guy. the bustles pled guilty to unlawful demonstration after joshua filmed jessica inside the capitol building. she also posted a lot of angry stuff about vaccines on facebook, but in court, jessica added, "i'm admitting guilt to the things that i said, and i'm sorry for saying them. there were also other things that were said in posts that were kind, like 'pray for america,' that weren't included." ( laughter ) that's like a murderer admitting he stabbed a guy, but he wants credit because afterwards he wrote, "don't do drugs." ( laughter ) we've got a great show for you tonight.
11:48 pm

( applause ) >> stephen: well, i'm happy to be here because, folks. i spend a lot of time gathering the finest, most topical stories about national studies, scientific breakthroughs, and drunk moose breaking into ice cream shops, only to have a pandemic hit, during which i take them into a sad, empty little room where my only friends are robot cameras and a purell bottle, and i let myself go while slowly descending into madness as i shove my sweet innocent little jokes into a segment that i am forced to rename "quarantine-while." but sometimes, i crawl out of the broom closet after 15 months, pour myself back into a suit, assemble the top team in the business, the swingin'est

( cheers and applause ) and, lo, it has come to pass! meanwhile, in massachusetts, a commercial lobster diver was swallowed whole by a humpback whale.
11:56 pm
reminds me of that famous bible story: "michael packard, the commercial lobster diver, and the whale." the guy's totally okay, and apparently was trapped in its gullet for nearly a minute before being coughed back up. the fact that he tasted bad saved his life. that's why i never go swimming without my cilantro shorts. but now that the ordeal is over, mr. packard has one request-- that matt damon play him in the movie. ( laughter ) ( applause ) really! wow! a whole matt damon movie, about one minute in a whale's mouth. might seem like a stretch, but hollywood is already developing "good will humpback" and "puking private private ryan." meanwhile, in celebrity news, made out at a steamy, p.d.a.-

12:04 am
>> stephen: now and i have spoken a few times over the covid lockdown, over the zoom interviews. which was great. we had a good time talking to you, we got information out there. but the thing that is coming back to me now, the emotional moment that i'm reliving was-- you were my last guest in this theater in 2020, on march 12 of 2020. we had no audience. there were some staff members. i have a photo right here. there you go. we had a few staff members out in the audience, and jon batiste was at the piano, right, jon? >> jon: yup. >> stephen: you were at the piano, and that was it. and we leaned on you to tell us what you thought we were about to go into. how-- how do you think we did for the last 15 months? ( laughter ) looking back on that night and the next 15 months, what's your
12:05 am
takeaway from what we've experienced? >> it's so-- it's so hard to sort of piece this all together, you know, stephen. i have to say, first of all, it is really wonderful to be here. i mean, it just-- it feels-- ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: it's great to have an audience back. >> i mean i think-- i think you forget what you miss, just being bathed in a sea of humanity. i love this. it's really wonderful. and i think there were times over this past year when i didn't know if it was going to happen again. i knew that it would happen again, i just didn't know when. the future just sort of looked blank when i looked out there. it wasn't that it was dark or light. thre was nothing there for a period of time. how did we do? well, stephen, i think-- i remember you asking me, "is it time to panic?" and i said, "i don't know that panic has a real purpose. we need to plan. we need to do things." as you know, stephen, 600,000 people have died. so i am still-- my heart is still so tight. i'm so happy to be here. i feel like i'm going to mark moments of this pandemic by this
12:06 am
show by sitting with you, as you showed in that picture and being here tonight. but we didn't do very well. we could have done so much better, and that makes it really heartbreaking. >> stephen: people are worried about variants, still, meaning people who know what they're talking about, specifically something rising-- something called the delta variant. what is that and how concerned should i be? >> so delta variant is a variant spreading in india. this has caused a lot of the increases in the u.k. the u.k. variant is no longer the dominant variant in the u.k. it is the delta variant because it is more permissible. about 10% here have the delta variant. if you follow it, it sort of doubles every couple of weeks. so, yes, it will become dominant here just by math, because it crowds out the other less- transmissible variant. >> stephen: does the vaccine stop the delta variant? >> yes, the vaccine works well. it has a little bit of a reduced effect against it but it works well against the delta. >> stephen: so if you have the
12:07 am
vaccine, you shouldn't where are about death or hospitalization of the variant? >> that's the thing. if you're vaccinated, i think you should feel pretty good that you're not likely to get sick or spread it. but if you're not, i have to say, you sort of thought you got away with it. "i didn't get infected. this thing is in the rearview mirror. this thing is 60% more transmissible, roughly. things you got away with before if you were unvaccinated, you're probably going to have a harder time. >> stephen: even a better reason to get the shot now. >> everything comes back to that. that's another thing we didn't know in march of last year that we would have a vaccine. >> stephen: so fast. >> so fast and so effective, 90- plus percent effective. i do not think we can celebrate the achievement of that science enough. it will fundamentally change science. it will change the pace. the mrna may be therapies for cancer in the future. >> stephen: and i have never gotten a clearer signal on my 5"g" phone before. it's amazing the coverage i get.
12:08 am
>> all the extra benefits. >> stephen: i have to ask something on a lot of people's minds. one of the things science does, it approaches information with humility, and changes as new information comes in. what about the origins of the coronavirus? is because many people, including a dear friend of mine-- >> yes, i heard. ( laughter ). >> stephen: believe that it's got to be the wuhan coronavirus-- novel coronavirus lab. why else would they name it that if they didn't make it? now, you're laughing but i'm just curious what you think of that rationale? and is there new information? i know this idea, this theory has been up-drafted recently. and is there any evidence? because i don't want to be right. i just want to know what the truth is. what do we know so far. >> yeah-- >> stephen: i do want to be right, though. ( laughter ). >> i think that this really has to be investigated. i mean i think-- the lab leak theory was dismissed by a lot of people and used for political
12:09 am
sort of gamesmanship, without any evidence. there was no evidence that it leaked from a lab. there's no evidence that it didn't leak from a lab. it's sort of the nature of science again. >> stephen: why does it come back around again, and people like anthony fauci and francis colinins are saying no, it should definitely be investigated. >> i did this interview with robert redfield, who was head of the c.d.c. at the time, and he came out and said-- this was in february of this year-- that he thinks that's likely how this escaped. and he's someone who had access to withdraw raw intelligence and raw data. and when you start to look at the pieces, like were there people who got sick in that institute of i haverology? they got sick in october- november time frame. that's interesting because we thought this didn't start to hit until december. was it caused by covid or something else? we found out lots of personal protective equipment was being purchased in china from other countries, including the united
12:10 am
states, at least 30 days before the rest of the world was given notice. did they know something? was something known? we don't have evidence to say that that proves to a lab leak theory. >> stephen: that-- that points to deception. >> it points to deception. >> stephen: but it doesn't point to-- >> but why deception. absolutely. the idea that was biomanufactured asaise weapon somehow versus an accidental lab leak versus a natural jump from animals to humans. those are really the three things on the table. the bioweapon part of it, i think most people don't really think that's what happened. but the idea that this virus could have been studied in the lab, could have been increasingly exposed to am had cells, and accidentally leaked out of the lab is a theory that i think is very worthy of investigation. there's something else: typically, when a virus jumps from animals to humans, it kind of sputters along. it takes a while for it to sort of gain steam. as was explained to me, this thing came out 90 miles an hour, and all of a sudden just started infecting wildly.
12:11 am
why? well, if it had been studied in a lab and exposed to human cells it was becoming more and more efficient. it was becoming smarter at the time that it leaked. it was a huge problem. >> stephen: now, you've been informing the nation, for the world about fact versus fiction about covid over the past year. but now you have a new podcast. it's called "chasing life." what is that? >> "chasing life" is basically about the reemergence of so society. what have we learned this past year? what have we learned about ourselves? what have we learned about human connection? also i kept thinking about the country in some ways, stephen, as my patient throughout this pandemic. i really did. i felt a real sort of-- i felt an empathy. i felt-- i don't know. there was a connection i never felt before. and the patient is still recovering. they're not totally healthy. they're still recovering. but part of that recovery is the physical recovery. and part of it is the mental
12:12 am
recovery as well. >> stephen: last question, most important one: there's the physical and then there's the mental recovery. and then there's the romantic recovery. when you were here 15 months ago, i scheduled you if it was time to stop dating. and you said yes. ( laughter ) dr. sanjay gupta-- >> that was science. >> stephen: i understand. can we date again? are you endorsed hot vax summer? ( cheers and applause ) no pressure. ( laughter ) >> yes! i am.
