11:38 pm
i am your host, stephen colbert. ( applause ) well, (bleep), you know what we're gonna be talking about tonight, so strap in. i wanted to begin tonight's show talking about the met gala and their theme of "the glamour of the gilded age." instead, i've got to talk about another group of out-of-touch people in crazy outfits pretending that it's 1895: the supreme court. because last night, we found out-- ( applause ) >> jon: strap in. strap in. >> stephen: last night, we found out, according to a leaked draft of the majority opinion, the supreme court has voted to overturn "roe v. wade." now, when i heard this last night, at first i was shocked. then i was shocked that i was shocked. you see, i'm no angela lansbury,
11:39 pm
and this isn't cabot cove, but keen-eyed observers may have noticed they've been dropping a few hints, a few clues that this might be coming down the pike. personally, i got suspicious when neil gorsuch stopped wearing his pussy hat. ( laughter ) the opinion, which would dispense with half a century of precedent, was written by associate justice samuel alito, seen here hoping nobody notices he just dropped an opinion in his robe. ( laughter ) and, boy, is it a load. alito writes, "we hold that 'roe' and 'casey' must be overruled. a right to abortion is not deeply rooted in the nation's history and traditions." on the contrary, an unbroken tradition of prohibiting abortion on pain of criminal punishment persisted from the earliest days of the common law." because nothing says "looking toward the future" like adhering to the earliest days of common law. that's why i believe that life begins at white, land-owning male, and why horses who read should be arrested for witch- mischief.
11:40 pm
alito strangely argues that overturning "roe" is about bringing people together, writing, "'roe' and 'casey' have enflamed debate and deepened division." so he thinks this decision will make those divisions... better? "and now, to mend a broken nation by pulling the healing pin from this justice grenade, aaand... kaboom-baya." ( laughter ) apparently-- apparently-- ( applause ) apparently, the conservative justices believe this is not an issue for the courts. alito writes: "it is time to heed the constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people's elected representatives." yes, it is time to return this issue to the guy who venmo's teenagers for sex and the woman who believes in jewish space lasers, as the founders intended. of course, back then, there were no lasers. they thought the rabbis were erecting magnifying glasses on top of church steeples.
11:41 pm
alito tries to dodge the controversy here, writing, "we do not pretend to know how our political system or society will respond to today's decision overruling 'roe' and 'casey.'" okay, but it sure seems like someone knew how society was going to respond, since immediately after the ruling was leaked, police surrounded the supreme court with barricades. "uh, these barricades? no, there's no problem. we just put them up to stop clarence thomas' fans from hugging him. those 'clare bears' are out of control. they're just-- gotta keep them back." ( applause ) that's fine. not that alito gives a damn what you think. he writes, "we cannot allow our decisions to be affected by any extraneous influences, such as concern about the public's reaction to our work." surprisingly he was joined by clarence thomas, brett kavanaugh, and amy comey barrett.
11:42 pm
congratulations, lady, your decisions are being made by four dudes. and a woman who thinks "the handmaid's tale" is a rom-com. this draft decision is scathing. ( cheers and applause ) at one point, alito writes, "'roe' was egregiously wrong from the start." now, i'm not a lawyer. i can't tell you if "roe" was rightly decided. but i can tell you it's an important precedent that has been repeatedly reaffirmed. and that's not my opinion. it's the opinion of these clowns: >> "roe v. wade" is an important precedent of the supreme court. >> "roe v. wade" clearly held that the constitution protected a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy. >> the supreme court of the united states has held in "roe v. wade" that a fetus is not a person for purposes of the 14th amendment. that's the law of the land.
11:43 pm
i accept the law of the land. >> it's settled as a precedent of the supreme court. >> stephen: wait a second. so kavanaugh was talking out of his ass! that can't be easy with all that beer he boofed. so, so-- ( applause ) so if these folks believe that "roe v. wade" was so egregiously decided, why didn't they tell the senators that during their confirmation hearings? well, because american voters support abortion in all or most cases at 80%. they knew that if they were honest, they wouldn't get the job, so they lied, which i think is perjury. but what do i know? i'm no supreme court justice. i'm not a good enough liar. ( laughter ) the point is, all five of these people-- ( applause ) here's the thing. abortion continues to be a contentious issue for many people, and people can have different opinions about abortion.
11:44 pm
but what was happening here was all five of these people played "the game," where they pretend they hadn't already made up their minds hoping everyone would believe them, which you'd have to be an idiot to do. enter maine senator and live action "lady elaine," susan collins. collins, who says she supports abortion rights, caught a lot of people mad at her in 2018, when she supported brett kavanaugh, even though everyone knew he would not hesitate to overturn "roe." here's her at the time: >> i do not believe brett kavanaugh will overturn. "roe v. wade." >> you have obviously full confidence? >> i do. >> stephen: ooooh, gotcha, susan collins! now you're definitely not getting reelected in 2020! she what? this morning, collins released a statement saying, "if this leaked draft opinion is the final decision and this reporting is accurate, it would
11:45 pm
be completely inconsistent with what justice gorsuch and justice kavanaugh said in their hearings and in our meetings in my office." okay, so she's just another gullible grandma: "i don't understand why they'd lie! we pinky swore in my office. this is just like the time my niece sent me that email saying she was stranded in guadalajara and needed money to get out of jail, so i sent her $10,000, and then i found out i don't even have a niece. i hope she's okay. i'm so concerned. maybe if i send the money to that nice nigerian prince, he can get it to her." now, keep in mind-- ( applause ) that was long. that was a scene. >> jon: that's a scene. scene is done. >> stephen: and curtain. keep in mind that this ruling hasn't gone into effect yet, because for the first time in the court's history, the first draft of a pending decision has been leaked to the public. originally, the court's opinion was not expected until the final day of its term, in june or july.
11:46 pm
that's courage. "well, there it is, the opinion i've been working on my whole life, and the only reason the federalist society put me on the supreme court is finally complete. america saved. now get in the car and floor it, james! i'll shoot it out a t-shirt cannon! i'm so proud! drive! they're on to us! go, go!" chief reports -- chief roberts -- ( applause ) chief justice john roberts was not amused by the leak, saying, "this was a singular and egregious breach of that trust that is an affront to the court and the community of public servants who work here." i don't blame him for being upset. this leak is a clear violation of the court's right to privacy. how dare someone make this decision for them. now because, because, because, because "roe v. wade" was decided on the right to privacy, some folks worry that dismantling "roe" could endanger
11:47 pm
other privacy rulings like gay rights, access to contraceptives, and even interracial marriage. but alito tried to reassure the nation, writing, "our decision concerns the constitutional right to abortion, and no other right. nothing in this opinion should be understood to cast doubt on precedents that do not concern abortion." and you can 100% believe that these five justices will honor that promise. i mean, that's precedent, right, brett kavanaugh? >> it's settled as a precedent of the supreme court. >> stephen: well, (bleep). we've got a great show are for you tonight. my guests are jose andres and ron howard. but when we come back, i'll break down the impact of the supreme court's decision with legal scholar and one of the hosts of "slate's political gabfest, emily bazelon. stick around, y'all. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

( cheers and applause ) ♪ ♪ ♪ >> stephen: good to see you again. >> thank you. good to see you, too. >> stephen: i want to talk about this, you know, this leak of this initial draft opinion. before we do any of that,
11:55 pm
what's-- what's the big deal about the fact that this was leaked? people are freaking out about it. explain to me why that's so important. >> i mean, it's really, in our modern history, has never happened before. >> stephen: and modern starts... >> modern starts, say, the 20th century. >> stephen: okay. >> we haven't had a major case have a draft leak early at a stage where we don't even know whether there's a firm majority for it. we don't know exactly what it means. but we can see all the reasoning that justice samuel alito is laying out for overturning "roe v. wade." >> stephen: today, roberts said this is the real deal. this is actually there. but, of course, that's not the final opinion. things could change. two things. one is... could some of these votes change? do we know in the past that from the first vote to the last vote, votes will change? >> votes can absolutely change.
11:56 pm
this is just a piece of paper right now. i mean, they can rip it up and throw it away and start over. and certainly it has been true in some big cases like obamacare, where justices have changed their votes during this process of drafting and revising opinions. >> stephen: like roberts. everybody thought he was going to vote to get rid of it. >> exactly. so, sure, it could happen. however, this is a really strong conservative majority of five justices, who were essentially put on the court-- this is their mission to end the constitutional right to abortion. that's kind of what they're doing there. >> stephen: who-- who-- is there speculation who might have done it? who benefits from this having happened? >> somebody who wants to damage the court's reputation, i think. this is bad for the court -- >> stephen: not just change-- but literally to damage the court's reputation. this is why you would do this? >> i think that's one reason. it makes the court look like any other part of washington-- leaky, a bunch of hacks. the other thing you might imagine is a liberal wants to embarrass the court, shake up the country, make them think there will be a big backlash if
11:57 pm
they overturn "roe." but it could be someone on the right wanting to make sure none of the five votes in the majority change their minds. >> stephen: you lock them in by making it public. >> lock them in. now it will be clear who got spooked and lost their nerve. >> stephen: let's get back to they were put on the court for this moment right now. let's talk about the confirmation hearings. i was talking about it before. it seems like these five justices, when they were appointed everybody knew that they weren't telling the truth about their opinions about "roe v. wade." the people who didn't want them to be there believed that they were lying and were mad about it. the people who wanted them to be there knew that they were lying but were glad they were lying so they could get on the court because it's an untenable position to take in the confirmation hearings. yes or no? >> i think confirmation hearings >> stephen: i said yes or no, senator! >> yes. >> stephen: i guess my question is, are confirmation hearings
11:58 pm
less than useless now? >> yeah. i think they're less than useless. i think they're misleading people, actually. yes. ( applause ) >> stephen: okay, what stands out to you about alito's arguments? >> well, so, up until now, "roe" and "casey," this later decision that affirmed it, have been based on the idea that there's a right to privacy, and also that the constitution protects our liberty. and the reasoning was that to really be free and equal, women have to be able to control their own bodies and when they have a baby. ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: that's an equal protection argument, though. >> it's a liberty interest argument. >> stephen: okay, yeah. >> alito doesn't agree with any of that. and one of the rationales he gives for not agreeing is that women are actually in a better position, he says, now, than they were when "roe" was decided in 1973. we have more protections against discrimination, and so, that is part of his argument that this is no longer a liberty interest, that the court needs to protect. you can just give it over to the states.
11:59 pm
>> stephen: so if privacy is not inherent in the constitution, what does that affect? what other rulings could that affect? is that ogerfull, gay marriage, or loving v. virginia. >> if you go back to the idea if it's not written down in the constitution it's up for grabs now. yes, it doesn't say same-sex marriage in the constitution. and it doesn't even say we can marry across racial lines in the constitution. those are ideas based on the interest and liberty and equality, but they're not in the text. so it is possible that once you start shaking the foundation of what counts as privacy and liberty and equality, that these other really important decisions in american life could also be toppled. alito says that's not what they're doing, but he is opening the door. >> stephen: yes, and they all said it was, you know, either settled or important precedent. >> yes. >> stephen: so there's no reason to believe them if they say the sky is blue, you should go check. >> settled law. it's settled until it's not settled anymore.
12:00 am
>> stephen: you are also one of the hosts of "slate political gab fest." let's talk about what the political implikses of this could be. the word "benefit" isn't exactly right, but who does this motivate to get to the polls in the midterms? or does it do anything to change that calculus? >> i think it will stir americans. i think it will stir americans on both sides of the political divide, right. so democratic voters are going to think, this is really a huge change. i mean, we could have abortion be illegal in 20 states before the election in november. >> stephen: when would that kick in? if the ruling comes out at the end of june? >> right, or they could do it sooner at this point. so, you know, the clock is really ticking. i should say, abortion is still legal right now because this opinion is not final. but it could happen quickly. and so then you could see democrats-- there's already talk from the senate leaders about introducing federal legislation that would in some way protect abortion. the filibuster is a big problem
12:01 am
for that. and you're going to see republicans very galvanized to pass state-by-state level restrictions in the states that they control and that is a lot of states. >> stephen: emily, thank you so much for being here. i really appreciate you for coming in and putting this in perspective for us. nice to see you again. >> thank you. >> emily bazelon, everybody! we'll be right back with jose andres and ron howard. ♪ ♪ ♪ ( applause ) ♪ ♪ ♪ buy one favorite like a big mac and get another for just a buck right now at mcdonald's. for people living with h-i-v, keep being you.

and i'm afraid if we make a movie it's going to turn into -- you know, it's going to become about me. i said, you would have to be significant in course. you know, you're the alpha volunteer. but it is nmy mind, about team work and volunteerism and the difference that that can make. and i said that is the movie i wanted to make. and he believed me. and i-- and i think it is the film that we can offer audience s. >> stephen: why do you like to make documentaries now? is it because you don't have to deal with actors? is that way? >> i'm balancing both. i've got them both going. and i think the documentaries are, in fact, influencing my work behind the camera on scripted film and television shows. look, i'll loving all of this. i'm loving storytelling more than ever in my life, and it's wonderful to be able to move back and forth. >> i want to be in a movie. >> he's been hounding me. he's been hounding me. >> i mean... >> stephen: it can happen, and i'll tell you why it can happen is because one of the things you learn in this film is you don't believe in impossible.
12:19 am
you believe-- you can never accept impossible. something can be made possible. where does that come from? where do you learn that? >> i mean, come on, people, millions of restaurants on a friday night, people like you come in. everybody wants a reservation, when? 7:00 p.m.. why? because you're important. fine, you arrive, "i want my salmon. i don't want it fishy." what do you want me to do, put it under bleach? millions of you asking and asking changes to a menu it took us years to make. chefs, we are very unique animals to adaptation. we keep a smile. as you keep changing every single menu, every single night. and that makes us improvise. that's what makes us -- >> stephen: something wonderful right away. >> very unique beings. we keep going no matter what. no matter what, everybody is going to be felled. this is the chefs around america, around the world, that we feed the few in the good

times. but every day, more and more, we are committed to feed the many in the bad times. >> stephen: we have to take a little break. when we come back, i'll ask jose how you can make a difference in your town and around the world. stick around. ♪ ♪ ♪ ( applause ) do you struggle with occasional nerve aches in your hands or feet? try nervivenerve relief from the world's #1 selling nerve care company. nervive contains alpha lipoic acid to relieve occasional nerve aches, weakness and discomfort. try nervivenerve relief. ♪ it's a lovely day today ♪ ♪ so whatever you've got to do ♪ ♪ you've got a lovely day to do it in, that's true ♪ [ chuckling ] ♪ and i hope whatever you've got to do ♪ ♪ is something that... ♪ [ music stops ] [ beeping ] cars built with safety in mind, even for those guys.

"well, we covered something in the morning." "that was it? that was all you did?" "well, you know, the trucks needed unloading and there were just a lot of people gathered around, so we put the camera down." and that's the spirit of it. it's-- you know, it's just infectious. and i had to sort of say, hey, hey, dude. i'm glad you pitched in, but
12:26 am
you're there to tell a story. and let's get it. the other bit of direction -- >> stephen: so you stole his crew. >> i mean, we are on a mission. we need to feed people. he's like, "hey, you, put the mic down. put the camera down." and that's the beauty of it, that everybody is hands on. >> stephen: now, jose, what is-- give us a call for action here. how can people help in their own way or collectively? what would you like to say to the people. >> that i realized especially in ukraine, every one of you, you can become your own organization. you don't need to try to feed the world. you can do little things, helping an elderly couple in the supermarket. make sure that they can put the shopping in the back of their car. maybe picking up, use a piece of paper to keep-- maybe going in the middle of, like it's happening in ukraine, that musicians are in every corner bringing hope to people just by

playing a song. you see everybody in this room, everybody in america has a talent that if you look within, you can put that talent to bring hope to others. we can all be part, not only of feeding america and feeding the world, but believe in longer tables, no higher walls. together we can change the world if we really believe in it. ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: ron, after making this film... ( applause ) after spending all this time on this subject with jose and world central kitchen what, do you want people to take from this him? >> well, i hope that they do recognize the sort of spirit of volunteerism. you know, just this idea that you don't have to dedicate, you know, your entire life to it, as jose has, as his family has supported him. but you really can make a difference simply by committing. and i think, again, that's why i
12:28 am
wanted it to be this kind of origin story. it's amazing to see the journey. i mean, look, it's very cinematic. there's action. there's jeopardy. it's a good movie. but underneath it all, it really is about-- look, the final scene-- i don't want to give anything away but i will-- is this kid, this-- this-- this 10- year-old kid who's just helping. he just-- he just volunteers. jose kind of deputizes him. you know anybody around here who needs meals? yeah, i do. and he's just pedaling his bike, and our camera guys got shots of this kid, leading, pointing things out. he was so proud of himself. >> he wanted to be my translator. >> that's right. >> he said, "i speak spanish." i said, "i speak spanish, too." yeah, but i want to be in a movie. >> we're going to do that, jose. >> who is going to tell me in america, the american dream, who, a guy like me me can be saying they will be on a night like today next to stephen colbert and ron howard and
