tv The Late Show With Stephen Colbert CBS April 2, 2019 11:35pm-12:37am PDT
the late show with stephen colbert is next. >> have a captioning sponsored by cbs >> the u.s.-- listen to this-- would run out of avocados in three weeks if president trump shuts down the border with mexico. >> donald trump has shut down the border with mexico, and america has run dry of its precious avocados. now renegade gangs of health-conscious millennials roam the landscape looking for green gold. >> give us the avocados for our toast, or you will die! i know it's high in fat, but it's the good kind of fat. it's called oleic acid. look it up! >> defend the avocados. >> every day they get browner and smooshier. >> bit if you want to save the
i'm your host, stephen colbert. chiewbl chiewbl occupy go>> i'v. these people have energy. i did not get a great night's sleep last night. there's nothing like a good night's sleep. you know who else didn't get a good night's sleep? donald trump, because starting a little after 10:00, he fired a series of angry and incredibly long tweets. ( laughter ) you know what they say: "brevity is the soul of wit." and he is evidently witless. his first-- ( cheers and applause ) evidently. evidently. his first target of his tweets was health care. you see, he's decided he wants to kill obamacare in the courts. remember "repeal and replace"? we're going to repeal and replace. >> audience: boo! >> stephen: well, after nine years, they still haven't gotten
around to the "replace" part. they have no plan. in fact, not only do they not have a plan, "there is no plan to make such a plan." ( applause ) so they don't have a plan to mack a plan, but they are working hard on a plan for you to never find out that they will never have had a plan. but trump, evidently, thinks no plan is better than obamacare: "everybody agrees that obamacare doesn't work. premiums & deductibles are far too high. really bad healthcare! even the dems want to replace it, but with medicare for all, which would cause 180 million americans to lose their beloved private health insurance." ( laughter ) yes, yes. ( cheers and applae ) beloved. beloved. america's private health insurance is beloved:
"my dearest cigna, you will always have a special place in my heart because you wouldn't pay for the valve replacement i desperately needed, and now i'm dead. wish you were here." ( laughter ) ( applause ) ( cheers ) then-- beloved. beloved. then trump repeated his new catchphrase: "the republican party will be known as the party of great "heltcare." yes, not healthcare, "heltcare." he's going to get out of this with technicalities. "as promised, i'm providing great "heltcare." you'll have access to the best dotors. now, who wants a free "mermagerm?" ( laughter ) ( applause )
( cheers ). >> jon: wow. >> stephen: what? then, this afternoon, trump met with the head of-- who did he meade with? he met with the head of nato to talk about-- who knows? because he just talked about whatever was on his mind and said his imaginary obamacare replacement is going to be great. >> when the plan comes out, which we will be showing you at the appropriate time, it's much better than obamacare. so when the plan comes out, you'll see it. >> stephen: (as trump): "trust me, desperately sick people, just keep breathing. ( laughter ) tell your diabetes to sit tight in your pancreases until some later time. and i promise you or your next of kin will love it." and tha that fantastic-- ( cheers and applause ) so amazing, imaginary health care.
and that fantastic healthcare plan can be yours for the small price of re-electing the man who does not know what it is. >> if we get back the house, and on the assumption we keep the senate and we keep the presidency-- which i hope are two good assumptions- we're going to have a phenomenal healthcare. >> stephen: that's a lot of "if"s. you know what they say: if "if"s and "but"s were a punch in the nuts, that would still be better than his healthcare plan. ( cheers and applause ) digity-digity-digity-digity! so you'll get great healthcare if you elect him. but here's the thing-- we're not dumb. we have memories. he promised the exact same thing before the last election. >> we're going to get rid of obamacare and come up with great, great, powerful, wonderful healthcare. everybody's going to be taken care of, much better than they are taken care of now. we are going to have a great healthcare system in the united
states, and a system you can afford. you will have the best health care you've ever, ever had. >> stephen: at least come up with a fresh lie. ( laughter ) he's like an old-tyme traveling snake oil salesman who made it full circle back to the prairie town where he started. (as salesman): ladies and gentlemen, i know my methylated arsenic spirits i sold you three years ago did not cure you but, in fact, gave you psoriatic dropsy and cooper's droop. but i bring you the cure: more sweet elixir! ( laughter ) trump also backpedaled hard on his threat to close the mexican border. >> reporter: is it your intention, sir, to close the border this weekend? what would it take to not close the border? >> well, i haven't made that intention known, and i'm ready to close it if i have to close it. (as trump): i might do it. you'll see. i might even close the border using my incredible obamacare replacement.
now, how do you close a border with a healthcare plan? got to elect me in 2020 to find out." house democrats are going to vote tomorrow on issuing subpoenas to force attorney general william barr to give them an unredacted copy of the mueller report. ( cheers and applause ) you're okay with that. you're okay with that. that sounds luke a good idea. sound good to me. and that shouldn't be a problem for trump because he said this just last week: >> reporter: do you want the report to be completely released? >> up to the attorney general. but it wouldn't bother me at all. >> stephen: but here he is today saying the white house will fight the release. >> i think it's ridiculous. we went through two years of the mueller investigation. we have-- i mean, not only that, you read the wording. it was proven. who could go through that and
get wording where it was no collusion, no nothing. so there's no collusion. the attorney general now and the deputy attorney general, ruled no obstruction. they said no obstruction, so there's no collusion, no obstruction, and now we're going to start this process all over again? i think it's adisgrace. >> stephen: (as trump): "no obstruction. it says so right in the document. and if you try to see the document, i'm going to obstruct you." ( laughter ) then he said-- ( applause ) "there's a comma-- there's a comma between no and obstuks. it's no! obstruction." then he said it was time to investigate the investigators. see if you can notice his small slip of the brain. >> i hope they now go and take a look at the oranges-- the oranges of the, uh, investigation-- the beginnings of that investigation. the mueller report i wish covered the oranges.
( laughter ) ( applause ) s. >> stephen: yes! yes, sir! we must take a look at the oranges of the investigation! i say it is high clemen-time we do so! the american people-- ( cheers and applause ) the american people will not stand-gerine for it any longer! we can vitamin c right through the lies! we tropi-can handle the juice! ( laughter ) this reminds me-- thank you very much. thank you. ( cheers and applause ) this reminds me of the classic joke: knock, knock! >> audience: who's there? >> stephen: orange! >> audience: orange who?
>> stephen: orange you ashamed we have a president who can't pronounce "origins"? ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) and-- and since he was talking, trump just tacked on a random lie when because, you know, why not? when he was talking about german chancellor angela merkel. >> i have great respect for angela, and i have great respect for the country. my father is german, right, was german, and born in a--a very wonderful place in germany. yes, it's true. frederick trump was born in a very wonderful place in germany: new york city in 1905. ( laughter ) ( applause )
(as trump): "my father was born in a wonderful part of germany-- very, very west germany. ( laughter ) and i'll never forget his favorite german saying, 'ich bin ein fuhgedaboutit.'" ( laughter ) we've got a great show for you tonight, everybody. emilia clarke is here. but when we return, "meanwhile"! -we bought a house in a neighborhood with a lot of other young couples. then we noticed something...strange. oh, could you, uh, make me a burger? -poof -- you're a burger. [ laughter ] -everyone acts like their parents. -you have a tattoo. -yes. -fun. do you not work? -so, what kind of mower you got, seth?
-i don't know. some kid comes over. we pay him to do it. -but it's not all bad. someone even showed us how we can save money by bundling home and auto with progressive. progressive can't protect you from becoming your parents. but we can protect your home and auto. proghello, i'm credelio-t you from becoming your parents. tiny defender of dogs. i'm the tick and flea chewable that's "gentle by design". with an extra purified active ingredient that's gentle enough for even young pups, like rosie here. boop. but tough on ticks and fleas. oh yeah. nope. not today!

batiste and stay human, everybody! >> stephen: stephen! stephen! stephen. >> stephen: wow, double-- you're too kind. thank you very much. you know who they should save that chanting for, our guest tonight, jon, emilia clark, the queen of dragons. queen targaryen. have you seen it, jon, "game of thrones." >> jon: i've seen the advertisements of the show. >> stephen: good enough. you have seen advertisements. what do you think the idea of the show is? >> jon: it's about royalty and dragons and beheadings. >> stephen: that's pretty good-- that's the "cliffs notes" right there. >> jon: covers it all. that's all they did back in the day. >> stephen: yeah. that's tonight, seven years of televisi summary,h your
host, jon batiste. ( laughter ) ( applause ) there you go. >> jon: there you go, clean. >> stephen: you know, i spend so much time breaking down all the big sides of news beef for you, but sometimes i like to take a minute to grind up the hooves and mix the news-keratin into my downmarket shampoo of a segment: "meanwhile." ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: everybody-- meanwhile, nasa wants to study the longterm effects of being immobile, so they've come up with the dream job for me in college, "offering people $19,000 to stay in bed for two months." let me save you some cash. just drop by my house while i'm bingeing "game of thrones" before the season premiere. ( cheers and applause )
"bed sores are coming!" ( laughter ) during the two months, "participants will be asked to do a number of activities lying down, such as eating, reading, watching tv, or going to the bathroom." but "you must speak german." or at least learn a few key phrases, like, "herr doctor, i beg of you, please change the sheets of my horizontal eating toilet." danke. danke. ( cheers and applause ) speaking of the "game of thrones," the show's fight choreographer said recently that in order to ensure the safety of all actors on set, "'game of thrones' has a safe word." which explains the end of season one: >> wait! i forgot the safe word!" ( laughter ) >> stephen: spoiler alert, jon.
spoiler alert. >> jon: yeah, i see that. >> stephen: he's fine. he's fine. to make sure the safe word was effective, he picked one "that might sound completely foreign to the people of westeros:" "banana." can that also be the safe word for when you're with someone who won't stop talking about "game of thrones?" ( lisping ) "well, technically, if jon snow is actually a targaryen, that means he can repel fire which, realistically, he would have discovered by now in his life, so it really doesn't hold up--" "banana! banana! dear god, banana!" meanwhile, "a pennsylvania man was just arrested for drunk driving." the man's name? daniel sober. ( laughter ) police call this their most ironic name-related arrest since they caught the notorious serial killer steve nottamurderer. ( laughter ) meanwhile, scientists have discovered that "dubstep music has been found to protect
against mosquito bites by delaying host attack, reducing blood feeding, and disrupting mating," but it's "specifically music by skrillex." ( laughter ) researchers also concluded that they'd rather just get malaria. ( laughter ) meanwhile-- ( applause ) skrillex. meanwhile, artificial intelligence continues to make strides, because now "a.i. can predict who will die early with 'unsettling accuracy.'" so don't be surprised when you ask alexa to order more paper towels, and she strongly suggests one-day shipping. ( laughter ) researchers-- >> jon: no! >> stephen: researchers trained the a.i. by having it analyze patients' health data using "computer-based 'machine learning' algorithms."
the algorithm is pretty complicated. did patient "a" put away seven cinnabons on sunday? if no, go to alive. if yes, go to dead. meanwhile, for some reason, this weekend, elon musk dropped a rap song eulogizing harambe the gorilla. oh, good! so that must mean the hyperloop is done, and we've colonized mars, and you finished that machine that gets kids out of caves? what are you doing? ( laughter ) now, that headline sounds bad, but it doesn't sound nearly as bad as the song itself. take a listen. ♪ r.i.p. harambe sipping on some bombay ♪ we on our way to heaven amen, amen ♪ >> stephen: that is the cruelest thing ever to happen to harambe: the gorilla who spent his life in a zoo and was murdered. but this is part of a long tradition of genius inventors making embarrassing forays into music. who can forget thomas edison's wax cylinder single during the alternative-current vs.
