and wrap this staple gun. ♪ ♪ done! ♪ ♪ >> announcer: it's the "late show" with stephen colbert! tonight, will smith; anna kendrick; and the "big furry hat." featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now, it's the best in "late show" retrospectacular end-of- year wrapupabration! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey, everybody. thank you so much. hey everybody, welcome to "the late show." so glad you're here. i'm your host, stephen colbert. ( cheers and applause ) it's lovely to be back.
we haven't seen you guys for a week. i hope you guys-- everybody have a good thanksgiving? ( cheers and applause ) i did, too. i had a fantastic-- jon, you were there. >> jon: yeah, that was great. >> stephen: fantastic, here's something i discovered this thanksgiving. i discovered if you bury your face in the pecan pie, it absorbs your screams. ( laughter ) and the best part is, after you- - it's true-- after you put your face in it, you get to have the whole pie. ( laughter ) you just keep shoveling it in there, and if you keep the pie in your mouth, you don't have time to yell at rick. >> jon: hey, i remember that. >> stephen: so, anyway, what's happening, guys? seriously, what the hell is going on? ( laughter ) i haven't been watching the news much, the last week, and i just kind of dipped my wick back in it last night, and i still don't know what to make of our president-elect. yeah, it's hard to know what he's doing.
and here's one of the reasons: the last time donald trump held a news conference was july 27. remember those days? ( laughter ) the conventions were in full swing, rihanna was dancing with drake and into our hearts. ( laughter ) mike and dave had not yet found wedding dates. but here's the thing-- donald trump, even though he is now the president-elect, is still not letting reporters follow him. trump is ditching the white house press corps like they're paparazzi. journalists have to trick their way into reporting on the man who's going to have the nuclear launch codes. >> right now, in a new york restaurant-- not far from here, in fact-- president-elect trump is having dinner with mitt romney. how did you get into the restaurant? >> we had gotten a tip, anderson, before this dinner that it was possible that they could be here. so, like any enterprising reporter, we decided to go ahead and make a reservation. ( laughter ) >> stephen: yes, it's all about reservations. and i have a lot of them. ( laughter )
trump and romney last night were dining at a four-star french restaurant called jean-georges. sounds fancy, but jean-georges could be french for "waffle house." ( laughter ) i don't know, i don't speak french. and they were joined at dinner by reince priebus, who is trump's chief of staff and not, as you may think, an item on the menu. ( laughter ) "would you care to start with some priebus? it has been lightly reince'd." ( laughter ) the billionaire of the people ordered young garlic soup with thyme and sautéed frogs legs. i thought he said he was going to drain the swamp, not eat its contents. ( cheers and applause ) now, here's the thing-- >> jon: easy being green, baby. >> stephen: sound good, though, sounds good. >> jon: that's right. >> stephen: here's the thing-- mitt romney at dinner with trump. no.
( laughter ) i know mitt is up for secretary of state, but i also know what mitt said during the campaign. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. his promises are as worthless as a degree from trump university. he's playing the members of the american public for suckers. he gets a free ride to the white house, and all we get is a lousy hat. >> stephen: yes, all we get is a lousy hat, and the young garlic soup and the frog's legs. ( laughter ) i bet those frogs legs taste a little bit like trump's ( bleep ). >> jon: whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: now, did, did-- ( cheers and applause ) did trump enjoy this public display of his most prominent republican critic bending the knee? i don't know. let's just check out the photo of trump at the dinner. ( laughter ) yeah, i think he did. i'm glad they shot that from the waist up. because he seems very happy. now, some people think in this
photo trump looks like the devil here. i think he looks like the guy who fired the devil one week before christmas. "you can't fire me one week before the holidays. you're a monster. what about my son damien? you know he has asthma. he was counting on that trip to harpy potter world." that's my devil. so, trump looks like he's feasting on baby souls in that photo, but let's take another look. what about romney? how's he look? ♪ ♪ ( laughter ) oh! oh, mitt! i know he ordered the frog, but it looks like he's eating crow. ( laughter ) ( applause ) i know, this is how-- ( cheers and applause ) this is kind of how i feel all the time. that face-- i find myself making
that face a lot since the election. ( laughter ) what's happening? what's happening? what's happening? i don't know what's happening. ( laughter ) i don't know how much we're going to keep on this for broadcast, but most of-- i think we're off the air at this point, aren't we? ( laughter ) all right. you know what i don't necessarily understand? have you guys heard about the recount going on in wisconsin? for those of you who haven't heard, jill stein, the green party's presidential candidate and grandma's new roommate, is ( laughter ) seeking a recount in wisconsin, michigan, and pennsylvania. but she's not looking to change the results. stein explicitly says on her website: "our effort to recount votes is not intended to help hillary clinton." it's all summed up in her campaign slogan-- jill stein: i'm not helping. ( laughter ) it's honest.
you know what else isn't helping? donald trump's tweets. he's gotten his phone back, evidently, and he apparently has a lot of free time. what's going to happen now? is this how we learn about things from the president? are we just going to have a tweet of the union? #strong. ( laughter ) trump tweeted plenty o' the cray-cray this past week. but the craziest was this gem: >> stephen: now, when asked for proof that there were millions of illegal votes, trump said he couldn't provide it because his millions of dogs ate it. ( laughs ) and, yesterday, trump took more time off from setting up-- again, the government of the united states-- to tweet this:
>> stephen: okay, first of all, those aren't equivalent things. loss of citizenship-year in jail. that's like your dad saying "johnny, you took the car without permission. so you're either grounded for a month or you're castrated." you choose. ( laughter ) no, no. that's it! snip, snip. snip, snip. and it looked like trump brought up the flag burning out of nowhere. until someone noticed that "fox and friends" did a segment on flag burning just before trump's tweet. so, there's a reasonable chance the president-elect is just firing off tweets about the last thing he saw on tv. ( laughter ) which explains trump's other tweet,
( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: oh, you know what? >> jon: i remember that. i saw that one, too. i saw that one, too. >> stephen: the thing is, no matter how you feel about flag burning-- and for the record i'm not a fan-- i agree that the american flag should not be disrespected. it is a sacred symbol that should be honored, whether it be on paper plates or napkins or banana hammocks.

( laughter ) that was the short version. i didn't want to mess your time up, you know. >> stephen: the first time i met you was in 2008. you were on the old show. >> yup. >> stephen: 3,000 people i've interviewed. you're the only person who ever just came straight into the rewrite room and came over and said, "hi, i'm will smith. i'm very happy to be here." i thought, "i think this guy is running for president of my show tonight."

( cheers and applause ) >> yeah, i missed it. i missed it, though. no, i was thinking about it.
but i watched obama for the last eight years. that's a hard job, man.

( cheers and applause ) debbie would. >> debbie would for sure. >> stephen: you have got to get the debbies. does politics hold any interest for you? >> you know, i definitely have had the itching, you know. i've had-- you know, i have lots of views and ideas and sometimes i hear people say things on television, and i just want to run against them. ( laughter ) >> stephen: run straight at them? >> just straight at them and knock them over. but, you know, it's-- it's something-- i think it's not where my greatest gifts are, you know. but i--
>> stephen: like politics and acting, it's a fine line. >> yeah, it really is. it really is. >> stephen: because you have to hold the audience's attention. >> and there's good actors and bad actors in the same way. i've definitely thought about it. my wife has said on numerous occasions, "hell no." ( laughter ) >> stephen: is that a direct quote? >> yes, it's a direct quote. >> stephen: let me write that down, "hell no." >> i'm not sure what she means by that, but that is what she said. >> stephen: you know what might be the next best thing? you, i think, would do a great job playing the role of barack obama. ( cheers and applause ) >> yeah, see, that might be good. that might be good. >> stephen: that might be fun. do you have-- like have you worked on your obama? because you guys both have swagger? >> yeah, swagger. we've talked about it a couple of times. >> stephen: you and obama have talked about it? >> yeah, we've talked about it. >> stephen: hold on. >> yeah, me and "b" was talking about it the other day, you know. >> stephen: like you do. >> you know, we was just chatting. but we talked about-- we talked
about it a couple of times. he said the one thing what is for sure, i have the ears to play him. ( laughter ) yeah. >> stephen: that's true, yes. >> i think that is-- >> stephen: the man does not need the n.s.a. he can hear what everybody is saying all the time. ( laughter ) after eight years of the barack obama presidency, there was all this sort of hope that we were in a sort of a-- or talk at least about, that we were moving into a post-racial society. what do you think of race relations, given the tension now in the united states after eight years of the obama presidency? >> you know, it's interesting. i always look at these things in terms of a marriage, you know. so i-- i've done my 10,000 hours of marriage counseling, right? so, you know, jada and i have worked really hard to develop a successful relationship. so i always look at things in terms of relationships. so when i think about race relations in this country now,
there's a thing that happens before things are cleaned up. there's a darkness before the dawn that is always difficult, you know... ( applause ) thank you, thank you very much. >> stephen: so now-- >> so, you know, when i hear people-- when i hear people say, "it's worse than it's ever been," i really disagree completely. it's clearly not worse than it was in the '60s, you know. ( laughter ) and it's certainly not as bad as it was in the 1860s. ( laughter ) right? you know. so-- >> stephen: sort of like a doctor has to go open the abscess to drain the wound. you've got to see what's going on? >> we are talking about race in this country more clearly and openly than we have almost ever in the history of this country. it's on the table. ( applause ) you know. >> stephen: because we have a history of sort of ignoring problems until you can't anymore. >> ignoring it, yeah, i think
racism is not getting worse. it's getting filmed, you know, you know. so i think-- i think that -- >> stephen: the revolution may not be televised but it's being tweeted. >> it's being tweeted, for sure. you know, so, i really think this darkness, as bad as it is and as difficult as it is, the problems are on the table, you know. so i-- i view that in same way as jada and i had to work through things in our marriage. when the truth comes out, when it gets on the table and you have to confront what's real, it sucks. you know? >> stephen: sometimes one of the two people says, "oh, hell no." >> oh, hell no. oh, hell no. if you think you're going to be doing that in this relationship, you've got another think coming. you know. no, but i do view it as a difficult time, but i think-- i think it's-- the problem's on the table. and i think there's an opportunity more than ever for a level of understanding that we've never had before, you know.
>> stephen: that is a very hopeful way of looking at it. >> absolutely.
