newscast is tomorrow morning at 4:30. >> have a good night! captioning sponsored by cbs is what? just so we're clear. and the problem with the president of the united states and the commander of cheese... commander... of... cheese >> and now a response from the commander of cheese. >> i just wa virginia gouda day, i said, gouda day.
11:36 pm
>> it's the late show with stephen colbert. plus, stephen welcomes mandy moore sara bareilles josh groban and musical guest meghan trainor 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: hey, everybody, thank you so much. ladies and gentlemen, welcome to "the late show." i'm your host, stephen colbert. ( cheers and applause ) i want you to brace yourself because here's a sentence i
11:37 pm
don't often say: donald trump did something good. today, he pardoned alice marie johnson, a great-grandmother, first-time nonviolent drug offender who received a life sentence for cocaine possession. life-- that seems pretty harsh, but if you've ever been stuck in a conversation with someone who's high on cocaine, that feels like a life sentence. ( laughter ) so, anyway, he did the right thing. he did the right thing. she didn't deserve to be in there. he let her off. but maybe he did the right thing for the wrong reason because there was no formal legal process or review. trump commuted her sentence because of a meeting with kim kardashian. so executive clemency is now just reality tv. stayed tuned for "the pardoner." ( laughter ) "i-- i-- look, i-- ro.j., will you accept this
11:38 pm
( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) and this one-- this is just the latest in a string of pardons that's included sheriff joe arpaio, scooter libby, dinesh d'souza, and the late boxer jack johnson. that last one, that last cause was championed by legal scholar sylvester stallone. ( laughter ) so, remember, if you ever get wrongly convicted, don't call a lawyer. call mickey rourke. and last week, trump floated the idea he might also pardon martha stewart and disgraced illinois governor rod blagojevich, after blagojevich's wife, patti, asked for a pardon on fox news. well that is-- going on fox news is one of the best ways to make sure trump gets your message-- other than writing it on his steak in ketchup. and, and cnn--
11:39 pm
( applause ) why not? we love meat jokes!" and cnn is reporting that the administration has prepared the pardoning paperwork for at least 30 people. "okay let's see who we got here, iron mike tyson, charlie sheen, the hot mugshot convict, the noid, hannibal lecter, fred flintstone, and osama bin laden. take that, obama. now you murdered an innocent man." ( laughter ) and-- thank you, jon. thank you. always there. >> jon: always there. >> stephen: according to one white house official, trump is obsessed with pardons, describing them as the president's new "favorite thing" to talk about, replacing his former favorite topic: "don't you think my daughter is hot? the ( laughter ) ooh, pardon me." insiders say he has become laugh-- ( cheers and applause ) "i-- i pardon myself."
11:40 pm
insiders say trump has become fixated on his ability to issue pardons because it's one area where he has almost unchecked power. and i'm actually okay with that. it's like letting your toddler play with an electric razor. it's going to look crazy when it's over, but he's having a good time. ( laughter ) meanwhile-- oh, there's big news for tariff fans! any riff heads out there? last week, trump imposed steel and aluminum tariffs on the e.u., canada, and mexico, also known as "the legion of people who still like us." ( laughter ) or used to, because they angry, no one more so than canadian prime minister and canadian prime beef, justin trudeau. on sunday, trudeau threatened that his country was slow to anger but dangerous, like one of their national symbols.
11:41 pm
>> i think we're more of a moose. >> you're the moose. >> we're the moose. the moose is, you know, even tempered and, you know, strong. >> stephen: and you know what they say: you mess with the moose, you get the-- i guess they're horns. i know they're like big floap paddles. you get the "head hands." ( laughter ) they're covered with velvet. they're soft. they're weird. i think they've got veins and stuff. and the moose is striking bag en steel and aluminum imports. but now they've gone farther. but it seems like they're making it personal, because look at these actual american imports they plan to tax: hair lacquers. clearly a shot at don jr. ( laughter ) they're going after-- ( cheers and applause ) yes. next, they're going after mayonnaise, which everyone knows
11:42 pm
that's mike pence's favorite drink. and sailboats, motorboats and inflatable boats. so, there goes melania's escape plan. ( laughter ) but the biggest hit of all is that canada will harshly tax imports of maple syrup. that's right. that's right. canada's going after trump's favorite food: topping. but the thing that really has canada's toques in a tangle is that, in order to justify the tariffs, donald trump had to essentially declare that canada is a security threat to the united states. oh, no. it makes sense. no, no, it makes sense. have you ever gotten one of their quarters while doing laundry? that's a war crime. ( laughter ) but trump's declaration didn't sit well with trudeau. turns out, in a recently revealed phone call that happened last month, trudeau pressed trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a national security issue, and trump responded, "didn't you guys burn down the white house?" ( laughter )
11:43 pm
adding, "and if you did, tell me how you did it, because when mueller closes in, i'm torching this dump." now, trump was probably referring to the war of 1812, when, in actuality, britishhe wi house. still, that is shockingly almost accurate. ( laughter ) since when-- when does donald trump know anything about american history? i thought his timeline went: "washington, lincoln, 'home alone 2', obama born in kenya, frederick douglass, me." ( laughter ) >> jon: wow. >> stephen: that's pretty clos >> stephen: he's in there. yeah. ( applause ) oh, check your calendars. if you didn't know this already-- you guys over there partying out-- it's summer. and this is a time when senators take a month off to go home, listen to their constituents' concerns, and then drink until they forget what they were.
11:44 pm
but not this year, because senate majority leader and congressional pupa, mitch mcconnell put an end to that. he made an announcement yesterday that harshed everyone's summer vibe. >> as you may have heard, i have canceled the august recess. we have a lot of important work to do as a result of unprecedented obstruction. >> stephen: damn right! it's been over two years. it is time to confirm merrick garland! but-- you don't even remember. but-- somewhere obama is weeping. >> jon: oh, no! >> stephen: but one person is excited about mcconnell's plan, donald trump. he tweeted, "mitch mcconnell announced he will cancel the senate's august recess. great, maybe the democrats will finally get something done other than their acceptance of high crime and high taxes. what? they're not in charge. that is like-- that is like your
11:45 pm
pilot-- ( cheers and applause ) that is like a pilot going, "ladies and gentlemen, this is your pilot speaking. the plane is going down. nice job, ya numbnuts." ( laughter ) but according to one republican senator, "the leadership is fearful trump will blast the senate if they're not in session and, therefore, hurt republican chances in the midterms." so trump can't be left unsupervised. they're treating the president of the united states like you would a dog near sandwiches. ( laughter ) and there are fewer people to dog sit him because the white house lost another employee yesterday. this time it was white house communications aide and woma ( cheers and applause ) and woman being told she can't take airplally sadl.
11:46 pm
you might recall that last month, when senator john mccain publicly opposed trump's pick to head the c.i.a., sadler responded by joking, "it doesn't matter. he's dying anyway." wow, wow. a quote like that is really bad for kelly sadler's political career. but it doesn't matter. it's dying anyway. because now-- ( cheers and applause ) because now, according to the white house-- and nearly a month after her comments-- kelly sadler is no longer employed within the executive office of the president. of course, it would be cruel to make a joke at her expense in this difficult time for her and her family. see how easy that was, kelly sadler? ( laughter ) it turns out, this has been coming for a while. one senior administration official said, "the white house had been strategizing an exit for sadler for the last two weeks." how does it take two wee ofng?
11:47 pm
this should go pretty quick. "all right, huddle up! here's the strategy: kelly, you're horrible. get out. now, what should we do for the next two weeks? everybody caught up on 'westworld'? ( cheers and applause ) it's crazy. have you watched "westworld?" rchltsd yeah. >> stephen: it's crazy. the craziest part is fer john mccain remarks might not even be ebe why she got fired. one official says the departure was not spurred by her mccain comments but instead over the fallout from the comment. what does that mean? how is that different? that's like a judge going "well, mr. smith, you murdered your neighbor, and i'm throwing you in jail because we cannot get the blood out of the carpet." lemon juice? soda waters? what do you do? oxyclean! oxyclean! also, she might not even really be fired. according to white house counselor and secret painting in the attic of claudia schiffer,
11:48 pm
kellyanne conway. here she is today, talking about sadler's future at the white house. >> kelly sadler has been told that there are administration jobs that fit with her skill set and her experience and that the rest is really her choice. >> stephen: well, her only known skill is mocking john mccain, so... president? of course, conway wasn't there just to talk about sadler. she also defended trump's recent criticisms of n.f.l. players, and listen to how she referred to the president. >> just so we're clear, and the problem with the president of the united states and the commander of cheese-- ( laughter ). >> stephen: that's right. you heard her right. "the commander of cheese." ( laughter ) now... that's not a slip of the tongue. that would be the commander "in" cheese. the commander "of" cheese is an
11:49 pm
entirely different position, one i will admit trump is qualified for. i mean, after all, he did win wisconsin. ( applause ). >> jon: oh! >> stephen: yeah. wisconsin. ( applause ) and i noticed that kellyanne found a way to deliver her alternative facts with a fun little twist. >> there's a lot of snark and bark, this junk and this bunk. the russian collusion, delusion illusion. ( laughter ) >> stephen: oh! oh! wow! kellyanne can rhyme! she's spitting bars faster than mueller can put people behind them. ( laughter ) well, if kellyanne thinks that simple, repetitive rhymes are the best way to get a message across, allow me to respond. kellyanne, you grin n' spin. you stump for trump with your deflecting and protecting. but we all know what you really are: a town crier for the garbage fire, a deceiver-for-hire, and there's no-one slyer. when things are most dire, you

we're all there, great. now, check out what happened in denver when an off-duty f.b.i. agent decided to bust some moves with a fully-loaded gun in his pants. >> stephen: okay. let's see that again, from another angle. okay, he's dancing, does the flip, bang, annnd... into the butt. then he walks away, hands up. there he goes. "sorry, bro! my bad! i just fired my gun blindly into a crowd of people. total party felony!"
