tv The Late Show With Stephen Colbert CBS August 11, 2022 11:35pm-12:37am PDT
>> well, thank you for watchinge watching. the late show with stephen colbert is next. >> have a great night. captioning sponsored by cbs >> the "wall street journal" reports an informant tipped off federal investigators to the possibility there were more classified documents at the president's former florida home. >> according to rollen stone, donald trump is worried he may have a rat or multiple ratsz in his midst. he's wondering if his phones are tapped or even if his buddies could be wearing a wire. >> we here as mar-a-lago were recently shut down in an f.b.i. raid due to an inside informant possibly wearing a wire. but mar-a-lago is open again for business. we've just had to make a few changes to make sure the f.b.i. is not listening in. play tennis, shoot golf all without the confinement of clothes or an f.b.i. listening
device. take a floppy jog with rudy giuliani, play horseshoes with mitch mcconnell or fish while proving you're loyal enough to keep a secret. so leave your worries and your wires behind and join mar-a-lago. >> we will no longer tolerate -- >> announcer: it's "the late show with stephen colbert!" tonight: the art of the skliam. and stephen joins the cast of "severance." plus stephen welcomes white house press secretary karine jean-pierre, and tatiana maslany, featuring jon batiste and "stay human," with special guest joe walsh. and now live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert!
( cheers and applause ) ( theme song playing ) ( cheers and applause ) ( audience chanting stephen ) >> stephen: thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! hey, everybody! that's nice. welcome one and all. everybody. in here, out there, all around the world, welcome to "the late show," i'm your host stephen colbert. folks -- ( cheers and applause ) beautiful sound. we continue to learn more details about the f.b.i.'s search of mar-a-lago this week. and it does not look good for former president velveeta voldemort.( the former president and his minions have tried to play the victim card, saying, why, he's just a simple country club owner, and that this whole investigation is a
nothing-burger. but it's beginning to look like the investigation is a something-royale with cheese. now, i'm not going to get my hopes up. i've been hurt too many times. i still have to get a dermatologist to remove my robert mueller tramp stamp. ( laughter ) it's going to sting! it's going to sting! ( cheers and applause ) still, there's some juicy tidbits. the latest? we now know that an inside informer told the f.b.i. what documents the former president was hiding, and where. so, there was a mole? who could it be... oh. my. god! ( laughter ) ( applause ) oh, my! oh, my lord! ( laughter ) we also have learned that the raid was deliberately timed to occur when the former president
was away. so, they had to either wait till he was out of town, or for the return of the mcrib. "big mango is headed for lunch. we got ten hours. go, go, go!" now that we know someone in the inner circle has flipped, the former president is reportedly freaking out and asking his allies, "who's wearing a wire?" to which don jr. said, "wired? i'm not wired! you're wired! who wants to start a band? no, a new app!" an app about a band! ( laughter ) sources say the ex-president is worried he may have a rat, or multiple rats, in his midst. and that's just at the mar-a-lago waffle bar. i think it's worth pointing out: good people don't worry that their friends are ratting them out over all the good stuff they're doing. "myeah, i don't want none of youse mugs squealing that i volunteer at the soup kitchen, see? anyone rats me out, you'll be sleepin'...
here at the homeless shelter. enjoy the warm bed. myeah." ( laughter ) since the f.b.i. search on monday, the former president's response has changed a little bit-- it started as "nothing to see here," and quickly became, "anything you see was put here by the f.b.i.!" and all the former president's hench-folk have gobbled up the bait. >> quite honestly, i'm concerned that they may have planted something. >> do i know that the boxes of material they took from mar-a-lago, that they will not put things in those boxes, to entrap them? >> how do you know there weren't listening devices or evidence planted there? >> stephen: you know when you accuse someone of planting evidence before they say they found anything? it's when you know they're going to find something. ( laughter ) "officer, before you breathalyze me, i must inform you, i suspect that you have planted a fifth of tequila in my stomach. ( laughter ) so, you're about to be in big trouble." so how did the f.b.i. agents
supposedly bring in 12 boxes of evidence that they took out? ainsley earhardt has a very... stupid theory: >> and his lawyers said they brought in backpacks. what was in those backpacks? >> stephen: good point, ainsley! everyone knows, you get to search the cops before they search you. that's why i always tell t.s.a., "hold on, first, i'm going to knuckle-bump your junk!" come here! ( applause ) it's called the sweet science. the ex-president's goons would have you believe that the justice department gave no warning before they rappelled into the poolside cabanas. au contraire. we just learned that the ex-president received a subpoena this spring for the documents, but he didn't hand them all
over, so months later, the justice department had to act, because the documents were so sensitive in nature, and related to national security. sounds like he had some high-level stuff in his basement. could be anything! missile locations. lists of c.i.a. sources. the alien technology that keeps paul rudd from aging! ( laughter ) now, in order to conduct the search, the f.b.i. had to present a search warrant and in order to take anything away, they had to give mar-a-lago an itemized receipt of everything they took. the former president could release both of those documents, and the mystery and intrigue might be cleared up. but, evidently, he doesn't want that, because as long as we don't know anything, he's free to say anything. so this afternoon, attorney general and elf on the shelf who has seen too much... merrick garland, announced that he has asked the court to release the ex-president's search warrant and the receipt.
( cheers and applause ) yeah, release it! he wants to release it all. the ex-president has till tomorrow to file in court to stop that from happening which would mark the first time he's ever declined the offer of a full release. ( audience reacts ) really... really... we found the line. ( laughter ) here's a bit of good news. after republicans like ted cruz had tried to block it, this week, president biden signed the pact act, which gives life-saving care to veterans who suffered chemical exposure like toxic burn pits. after the signing, the president singled out a familiar name: >> so many people today remind us, we have fought for this for so many years. veterans, surviving families, surviving family members, advocates like rosie torres and jon stewart. what you have done, jon, matters, and you know it does-- you should know.
it really, really matters. you refuse to let anybody forget, refuse to let them forget, and we owe you big, man. we owe you big. (standing ovation) >> stephen: i know that dude! he's in the credits of this show! executive producer jon stewart! that is a well-deserved standing ovation. ( cheers and applause ) as jon's friend, i know how uncomfortable he is getting praised, but, also as jon's friend, i truly enjoy how uncomfortable he is getting praised. too bad, buddy. if jon were here, he'd say that this isn't about him, that the real heroes are the men and women who served their country. and he's right. but also, he's not here, so... congratulations, jon!
you did it. i want you -- ( cheers and applause ) he's going to hate this. he's going to hate this. i want you to go out tonight and treat yourself to something nice. might i suggest a slightly cleaner gray t-shirt. we've got a great show for you tonight! my guests are white house press secretary karine jean-pierre, and "she-hulk's" tatiana maslany. but when we come back, i join the cast of one of my favorite television shows. "severance"!
seen this ad? it's not paid for by california tribes. it's paid for by the out of state gambling corporations that wrote prop 27. it doesn't tell you 90% of the profits go to the out of state corporations. a tiny share goes to the homeless, and even less to tribes. and a big loophole says, costs to promote betting reduce money for the tribes, so they get less. hidden agendas. fine print. loopholes. prop 27. they didn't write it for the tribes or the homeless. they wrote it for themselves.
ladies and gentlemen -- folks -- ( cheers and applause ) you know -- you know, uh, when i get home after a long day of tv, there's nothing i like more than sitting down with some tv. and right now, one of my favorite shows is "severance." if you're not familiar with "severance," it's a series on apple tv+ that is-- and please stay with me here-- not "ted lasso." but it's one of the most critically acclaimed shows of the year, and has even been nominated for 14 emmys. which means apple now has almost as many nominations as types of cords. what is thunderbolt?! is that one of the new shows? stop it! stop with the cords! ( applause ) now, if you haven't watched "severance," it takes place in the surreal, subterranean offices of a company called lumon, where the employees have had a microchip implanted in their brains, so that every time
they enter or exit the building, in the elevator, their work memories are separated from the rest of their lives at that moment.. and as a result of this memory-severing moment in the elevator, whoever these workers are on the outside-- which they call their "outtie"-- is essentially a different person than what they call their "innie"-- the person who works at lumon. wow. can you imagine what it would be like if i went to work and i became a completely different "stephen colbert"? ( laughter ) ( applause ) and there are all sorts of other mysteries in "severance," like the strange "number sorting" project they're working on, the weird rewards they're given for completing work tasks, and the ominous break room where they're forced to recite a confession of wrongdoing. it is easily one of the top dystopian workplace sci-fi mystery black comedy psychological thrillers i've ever seen. in fact, the only thing i don't like about "severance" is that i was originally going to be in it! but, for some reason, all my scenes were left on the cutting
room floor. thankfully, "the late show" has found the missing footage. and here, for the first time, are my deleted scenes from "severance." ♪♪ ♪♪ ( laughter ) ( passing gas ) ( sighs ) ( elevator dings ) >> steve c.: oh, my god! who did that? >> good morning and good day, irving. i'd like to introduce you to lumon's newest refiner, steve c. >> welcome, steve c. may kerr's mouth ever smile on you. >> steve c.: what it is, herb? no, thanks. where is my guest? kitchen.

>> steve c.: okay. because 7, 8, 9. >> if it weren't forbidden by the handbook, i would kill you. >> steve c.: i believe that humor is a great motivator, and i'm pretty sure i saw dwight crack a smile. >> steve c., who in kerr's name are you talking to right now?

friend -- how does that feel? ( laughter ) >> dial that friend up. >> stephen: yeah. o i think you all have a job for the american public to make them laugh, and we have a job for the american public to deliver. you know, we understand. we understand that you have your job, we have our job. >> stephen: no hard feelings. absolutely not. and the president absolutely gets that. >> stephen: okay, good. is he going to come on? >> oh, that's where you were going. >> stephen: is he going to come on because he's been on falon -- >> you're keeping track. >> stephen: we're dear friends, obviously. >> he loves you and i'm sure he's watching. >> stephen: sure. yeah. ( applause ) >> stephen: so, when y'all came into office 18 months ago, one of the goals stated was to kind of repair the relationship between that press office and the press. how was that going and how do you do that when some members of the press won't agree on what
reality is? >> some members of the press? >> stephen: some members of the press. >> look, i think the way that i see it is my job, our job, is to make sure that we are delivering the facts, delivering what the president's agenda is, and that's our focus, and that's what we -- we do every day, and we really worked -- have worked the last 18, 19 months to repair that relationship, and there's always going to be a give and talk, always going to be a little pull and tug, but that's okay, that's democracy, the freedom of the press, the indy of the press, and, you know, we see it as an opportunity to really be able to communicate to all of you, to all of the american people on the work that we're doing every single day. >> stephen: since you started, al-zawahri was killed, gas prices are below $4 a gallon, inflation has begun to ease, the
burn pit legislation was passed. massive climate bill is set to pass tomorrow, what is the key to making all that happen so fast? are you thas happened? ( cheers and applause ) or is it the fact that the president has been in isolation with covid for a lot of that? >> i think, look, i think it's this, i really do believe that you have -- we have a president who has the experience, who is committed, who has the core of his conviction. if you think about why president biden ran in 2019, it's because he saw what was happening to the core values of our country, the traditions, we were being attacked, it was being threatened, and he saw the little guy, everyday people, were being left behind, and, so, he wanted to make sure that we lift people up from the bottom up and really bring out the economy from the bottom up as well and middle out.
and that's what you're seeing. this is the work of this president for the last 19 months, since the promises he made in 2019, you've got to remember, he was a senator, a vice president. a lot of this stuff is work he's been committed to for so long and now, you know, for example, the inflation reduction act, my gosh, if this gets done -- and it will because the speaker and our leadership is going to make this happen in about 24 hours -- it is going to change people's lives, and that is not talking points, that is just the facts. if you think about prescription drugs, there are people out there -- and i can speak to this personally, the president can speak to this personally -- when you have an elderly parent and they are getting thousands of dollars of prescription medication that's coming to their home because they need it, they either have a chronic illness and they have to just survive, and the rest of the family comes together, and they're, like, okay, how are we going to chip in to help mom or
dad pay for these prescription drugs? and you think about this bill, this anti--- basically this anti-inflation bill, it is going to cut costs, lower costs of prescription drugs, cap it at $2,000 a year, that is going to make a difference for so many americans. you think about -- ( cheers and applause ) you know, it matters. >> stephen: well, it's so lovely to meet you. >> nice to meet you, stephen. >> stephen: give my best to your mother. white house press secretary karine jean-pierre, everybody! white house press secretary karine jean-pierre, everybody! we'll be back with "she-hulk's" tatiana maslany. i'm into intimate conversations, leather lounge chairs and soaking up the cities atmosphere. i'm looking to provide a more unique experience. do you like single origin coffee over a game of chess?

secret? >> not to keep it secret, but it was covid and we wanted to keep it small. >> stephen: yeah. it went very well. it was a very chill day other than our dog was our ring bearer, earl. >> stephen: is this it? i'll tell you what the photo is about. earl had the little box of rings attached to his neck, and brendan and i did the seeing each other for the first time in our outfits thing. >> stephen: i like your outfits. >> in our wedding costumes. >> stephen: you really look like a bride. >> totally. really selling it. and earl ran at me and we were in this field, blah, blah, blah, and brandon and i were taking pictures and we were making out. and there was a great picture where you can see earl has lost the rings. >> stephen: can you get a close shot of this right there? you can see the box. ( audience reacts ) >> and he's truly, like, oh, no! he's, like, he knows what he's done, and we had no idea. >> stephen: when did you discover it? >> moments later. we looked down and we were, like, hey, earl -- oh, no, earl! then we found the rings kind of in this -- truly it was like in a field of sheep. and brendan, like, saw them. >> stephen: in a field of sheep? >> yes.
>> stephen: if it's a field of sheep it's actually a field of something else. >> correct, and there was a lot of dodging that and thankfully they had missed the ( bleep )s we call it in german. >> stephen: it never occurred t you that it might be courting trouble to put jewelry around a dog's neck? >> he's very responsible. we wanted him to, you know, feel like we trusted him. he's six now. he has to grow up. >> stephen: okay, so, now, now you're a marvel superhero. as i said, "she-hulk: attorney at law." ( cheers and applause ) the obvious question here, i can't believe it hasn't been answered before, why is that character "she-hulk," why is bruce banner not "he-hulk." why do you have to have the modified. >> that's right. she has the same issue with this name in the show as i do as you do. we all struggle with this name.
she finds it reductive, she finds it -- she's, like, why don't i exist without being a derivative of the hulk, so it's a whole thing. >> stephen: we have a clip here we want to see in a second. before we do that, in this clip, if i'm not mistaken, you can think, you can still be a lawyer. >> i'm a woman and i can -- and i can still think. >> stephen: you're a hulk and you can still think. bruce banner turns into a hulk and he becomes kind of a mindless destroying machine, almost like animal in intelligence. >> correct. >> stephen: and he has to work to get out of that, then he can't be the hulk, and he comes back together and becomes professor hulk. >> professor hulk! i think it's smart hulk. >> stephen: what? mart hulk. >> stephen: i don't want to fight. >> you don't want to fight. >> stephen: i wouldn't like you when you're angry. >> that's true. >> stephen: is jennifer
walters, why can she be lawyer and hulk at the same time? why is she better than hulking? >> because women have been socially taught to repress and control their emotions in order to survive. so she is, like, i'm so good at dealing with my rage, i deal with it constantly, i deal with fear constantly. so she's able to just navigate it effortlessly. >> stephen: okay. she's put in the hours. >> she's what? >> stephen: she's put in the hours. >> exactly, she's done the time. >> stephen: so we have a clip here with jennifer and bruce. what's going on mere? >> i think this is a training montage, and we see how good jen is compared to bruce, and he's not having fun with that. >> stephen: all right, jim? being a hulk asks for balance. ♪♪ ♪♪
( crashing sounds ) >> it's easy. little punk! so i'm clearly nailing it at all these things. when am i ever going to use this as a lawyer? >> jen, when you have powers like this it's like putting a target on your back and the backs of all the people you care about. >> cool. yet another way my life is ruined. thanks, bruce! >> stephen: oh, bruce. oh, bruce. >> stephen: tatiana, lovely to see you. >> thank you. >> stephen: congratulations on the marriage. >> thank you! >> stephen: that's wonderful!
