(laughter) all right, it's a real honor. of course, this time last year everyone was positive it was going to be hillary clinton. she was a lock. but she's still reeling from getting trounced by bernie sanders in new hampshire last week. bernie won 83% of young voters. (cheers and applause) the only group hillary won was voters over 65. so she may not have won new hampshire, but she definitely won old hampshire. (laughter) okay. but they're nimble. her team is nimble. so her team sprung into action and reached out to young people with an ad on the youth-friendly social network, america online. (laughter) this is true.
12:09 am
(modem noise) for america. >> jon: that's the dialup. aol is where all the cool teens go to update their geocities page. i can't wait to see how they appeal to the youths next. maybe hand out some leaflets at bingo night. or team up with netflix to sponsor a "murder she wrote" reunion where the victim... is the middle class. (laughter) or a massive ad buy on a.m. radio: "just want to remind all yo millennials to get out there and support hillary. coming up next: three hours of old men whispering about jesus!"

human"! and now it's time for "the late show" with stephen colbert! (cheers and applause) >> stephen: thank you so much! thanks, everybody. before we get started. i'd like to say a few words about the passing of supreme court justice antonin scalia. he was universally acknowledged to be an intellectual giant, who left his mark not only on the court but on our approach to the constitution. and whether or not you agreed with him or made a lot of jokes about him like i did, he had a sense of humor. people have actually broken down the transcripts of oral arguments, and he told more jokes and got more laughs than
12:13 am
that might part of the reason why he was such good friends with justices who he disagreed with like ruth bader ginsburg and elena kagan. and i was lucky enough to have one conversation with him that explained his appeal to me. it was ten years ago this april, when i spoke at the white house correspondents dinner. i don't know if you guys saw that. (chf not a lot of people laughed in the front row. (laughter) some people laughed in the back of the room but the important people in the front row, mostly silent when i gave the speech. when it was over, no one was even making eye contact with me.
12:14 am
scalia. he had been caught a week earlier doing this to the photographers. i did my gestures at him. after it was over, he came up to me, again, no one is talking to me in the whole damn room! and antonin scalia comes up to me and says, it's great, great! did you give me one of these? ahhh! i said, sir, first, i want to ask, would that be legal for me to do? he said, of course, it would be legal. i said, yeah, i gave you one of these. he said, great stuff! great stuff! good night. and he left. i watched him go and i thought, don't you make me love you, old man. so i will forever be grateful for that moment of human contact that he gave me. so i would like to say one last time, justice scalia, i salute
12:15 am
(cheers and applause) (cheers and applause) the short list to be named to the supreme court, as a late-night host, i already wield tremendous power. i can force 200 people to wait in line in the snow for two hours and they still clap when they see me! (cheers and applause) that's not right! and yet... and yet, there are those out there even more powerful than i am powerful. history's most despotic leaders - people like genghis khan, czar nicholas the second and jessica alba, who i believe is the ruler of albania. (laughter) these merciless tyrants have but two things in common: the first
12:16 am
one is a big furry hat! (drumming) (cheers and applause) now that this hat is upon my head, i am endowed with unquestionable power! this is due to my hat's two main attributes: its bigness, and its furriness. any proclamations i make while so behatted are now and forever law. let us begin. drumming a march rhythm). from this day forward, only people born on presidents day

(laughter) i'm like arrrrr! touch my arm and see what i do. >> stephen: you flexed?! i did not! >> stephen: you didn't care what this felt like. that's a man secure in his own manliness. >> yeah, and that was me flexing. >> stephen: you are an american citizen now. >> i am. i have been for some time. (applause) that's why if trump becomes president i'm, like, you can't touch me, i'm here, it's cool. >> stephen: you got in under the trump limit, as we call it. >> the scottish people are out building a wall. >> stephen: they already had one. >> no, the romans built the wall to keep the scottish people out. >> stephen: couldn't do it. it's a lesson from our history. >> yeah. >> stephen: are you more patriotic than regular americans because you chose america. you married into this family
12:26 am
the rest of us were born here. >> to be fair, first of all, trump wasn't running for president when i am an american citizen (applause) >> stephen: that's true. and i also think, yes, a little bit in the sense that you're catholic but you were born a catholic. >> stephen: i can leave anytime, though. >> yeah, but you know people who become catholics later on in life -- >> stephen: they pray with the elbows out. >> they're a little more jesus-y than the regular catholic. >> stephen: because they chose. >> changing your nationality is an act of faith, any faith is enhanced by having a little doubt and concern. when i look at my own patriotism, it's still fervent and there, but it's a little different than it was of the
12:27 am
a citizen. now it's, like, how do become involved in electing the president and that sort of thing. >> stephen: did you become a citizen july fourth? >> no. >> stephen: it's like asking a girl to marry you at the top of the eiffel tower. >> did you do that? >> stephen: no, i'm not as romantic as i could be. >> i'm sure you wife said okay, anyway. don't propose a woman on top of the eiffel tower because you want a woman to settle for less. >> stephen: the bottom of a mine shaft. >> that's correct. it's going to be better, baby! >> stephen: why "join or die?" can i get a shot of that? >> that's a tattoo on my arm.
12:28 am
cartoon, we must come together, a united calling. so it became a symbol of the united colonies which became the united states and i thought it would be nice to get that when i became a citizen. i have others but they're elsewhere. >> stephen: does this deal with a part of american history. >> i think the first years were too contemporary. i think we should go back a little further. right now it tends to be in the last 50 to 100 years and tends to be american history. these are some of the topics -- >> stephen: these are some of the topics coming up on the new show, can i ask you about them? >> yeah. but i'm not putting myself out as a history buff. i'm not buff like you are buff. >> stephen: or in the buff. well... >> stephen: ratings, ratings. ratings are important. >> stephen: never say never. i don't know if me being naked will get anybody watch the history channel.
12:29 am
the other tattoo! >> we watched dynasty and now a naked dude, yeah! >> stephen: well, it's the history channel. for a long time it was hitler then aliens. >> that's part of our history, stephen, whether you like it or not, hitler! >> stephen: and aliens. we have come from another planet! >> stephen: yeah, that was a good hitler alien! that was spooky! (applause) >> yes, i only work out on this side -- (german accent) >> stephen: most overrated figure in american history and why? who's that? >> at the moment, i think it has to be kanye, but later... (laughter) >> stephen: he's in debt. i don't believe it. i think it's a ploy. >> stephen: really? how can he be in debt? >> stephen: have you seen how he lives? it was possible. >> he's got clothing lines and,
12:30 am
rich if you have a clothing line? >> stephen: i've never had a clothing line. do you have a clothing line? >> i'd like to put one together. >> stephen: we're in the wrong business. >> 50-year-old scottish dude. i want to look like that guy! >> stephen: do you remember the things you had to learn for your american -- for your citizenship test? >> no, i did it when it was easier. they changed the test and made it harder. when i did it, it's like, do you hate al quaida? you're in! >> stephen: that was it? yeah. >> stephen: are you still scottish? do you have dual citizenship? >> yes, you can have it removed. your people are originally from france, i would imagine. >> stephen: no, mine are from ireland. it's sort of fake french, but i'm from ireland. >> you changed your name to
12:31 am
>> stephen: it's cole-bert, but i'm pretentious. >> he said something so deprecating and you went, yea! you guys are jerks! >> stephen: what's your question? >> i was thinking about trump because i thought it might come up in my discussions. you know his mother was scottish. >> stephen: i heard that, yeah. >> well, that's the (bleep) problem right there! can i say that on cbs now? (cheers and applause) >> stephen: oh, yeah! you can say (bleep) all you want on cbs now! yeah! that's one of the biggest changes. they love it! they love it! >> if i had known that i would have (bleep) stayed! (laughter) but his mother is scottish and you're looking at a man whose mother is scottish and not enough therapy. >> stephen: who tees the greatest scot? >> sean connery, without a

12:45 am
12:46 am
(cheers and applause) >> stephen: welcome back. my next guest is the junior senator from new jersey. please welcome cory booker!
12:47 am
>> stephen: nice to see you again. >> good to see brother baptiste over there. >> stephen: oh, yeah! in your last show -- >> stephen: you guys were singing together. >> we were standing together. i wasn't singing. i was mouthing the words. >> stephen: let's mouth some words together right now. >> let's do. >> stephen: you have a new book called "united: thoughts on finding common ground and advancing the common good." we are so politically divided how do we find common ground anymore? is my common ground not necessarily yours? can we agree on what is common anymore? >> i think we can more than we know. our differences matter but our country matters more. when you focus on country and patriotism, it necessitates a
12:48 am
love is not a wimpy word. it's actually a hard, difficult word and it means reaching out. we often have this idea we should just tolerate each other. tolerance is a week start. it just says we should stomach each other's right to be different, if you disappear from the face of the earth, i'm no bert or worse off. but we as a nation aspired to move beyond tolerance to love, to recognize we need each other and we're our greatest hopes. an old african saying, if you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go with another. >> stephen: where is the love in the senate? who can you share your love with? let's talk about some of the people running for president now. there are some senators running for pt. senator sanders, senator cruz. >> there are some senators actually not running for president right now. (laughter) >> stephen: some people say donald trump keeps accusing ted cruz of having nobody who will
12:49 am
have you worked with ted cruz? >> yes, we introduced and passed legislation together. went down there not to be new jersey's democratic senator but i represent eeverybody. i got great advice from a former senator bill bradley. he said don't pre-judge the people you're with. take time to get to know them and sit with them. a lot of the republican senators showed me extraordinary kindness and sat and worked with me. i work with people based on we can find common ground. people would go past our dinner table, do a double take and say this is the presidential ticket in 2020, and i would look at them and say no way. (laughter) but through that conversation, we said let's find something we can work on together. there are issues we agree on. we passed a piece of legislation together last year and i'm very proud of that. >> stephen: let's talk about what is going to be, for all, you know, the hope of love,
12:50 am
royal over whether or not barack obama can reasonably nominate someone to replace justice scalia in the last year of his term. >> right. >> stephen: mitch mcconnell, leader of the republicans in the senate and leader of the senate now because the republicans in majority said can't do it, it violates press precedent. what do you think? >> what you said in the beginning of the show about justice scalia, the power of human kindness, people underestimate that. we are here because of a conspiracy of love. we have a great man theory, where great men descended, george washington, martin luther king, and led us to a better country. but that's not the truth of our history. it's extraordinary americans doing extraordinary acts of kindness of service and love, people leaving their homes to do
12:51 am
i don't think you share philosophy of jurisprudence as scalia, but you saw the transformative power. i'm sheer because my father born in jim crow, north carolina, to a poor mother -- he was po, could cannent afford the other two letters -- his mom couldn't take care of him. so the small acts of kindness of people in the town who took him in, put a roof over his head, he had no history of kindness, but it was people who did small things, church collection to help him go to college. what's the r.o.i. on kindness but it reverberates in the generations. i know we get caught up in the political battle of the day, but far more important is goodness and kindness and mercy we do every day. the biggest thing we can do any day is often a small act of kindness. and i meet people like that on
12:52 am
and talk to me about their overcoming addiction. they talk about being homeless and their stories of personal trials always seem to be laced with their desire to help other people. we have a broken criminal justice system. >> stephen: let me ask you -- please. >> stephen: if you would like to help other people, help me on this. >> okay. >> stephen: do you think obama can nominate somebody for the supreme court? just answer that question. (applause) >> i will answer the question. i know you're trying to get to the -- >> stephen: i just want a yes or no. >> so people -- (laughter) >> stephen: i mean, that was beautiful. that was beautiful. i loved every minute of it, but let's be serious. (laughter) >> you sound like my last girlfriend. let's get to the point. >> stephen: uh-huh, so? o as i read the constitution, it clearly says, we have an obligation, the president has an obligation to fill the vacancy, to allow the seat to remain vacant for a year
12:53 am
be unacceptable. >> stephen: it would be 4-4 ties and a year of 4-44 ties and they would have to do a coin toss or something like that. >> you have a great sister who ran for office, but they say ties are like kissing your sister, and i know -- >> stephen: i don't know anything about what you're talking about. (laughter) >> we need to aspire in our country, whether it's about the supreme court or whatever, to evidence the best of who we are, and it's not always winning or beating down somebody, it's about elevating others, embracing others. >> stephen: and being united. yes, it is. >> stephen: cory booker, thank you so much. >> thank you. >>.>> stephen: "united" hits the shelves tomorrow.
12:54 am
