7:14 am
right not to incriminate himself. then he said cosby would be forced to answer questions in a civil case. on wednesday constand's lawyer said she wasn't aware of that deal and criticized castor's decade-old decision saying he was not going to alien fans of dr. huxtable. montgomery's current district attorney questioned the agreement's current availability. a secret agreement that permits a wealthy defendant to buy his way out of a criminal case isn't right, he said. cosby's attorney defended the deal saying, what we're talking about here is honoring a commitment. >> his argument was ludicrous. >> jeff lindy is a criminal defense attorney in philadelphia. >> he said he made a decision to not charge mr. cosby and that that decision was binding until the end of the earth. if that is the case, you put that in writing.
7:15 am

7:59 am
launched a twitter rant against ted cruz. >> he now claims that cruz stole the caucus vote and committed fraud. trump says that cruz manipulated voters, telling them ben carson had dropped out of the race. cruz said that trump is, quote, losing it. and said voters are not interested in what he called a trumper tantrum. >> bernie sanders leading new hampshire polls hillary clinton is downplaying her chances. clinton who narrowly won in iowa says sanders has an advantage because he's from neighboring vermont. sanders says clinton started with more voter recognition. plus she won the primary eight years ago. >> sanders also questions how progressive clinton can really be after taking wall street money. last night hillary clinton was asked about high-priced speeches to the investment firm goldman sachs. >> i made speeches to the los of groups. anybody who knows me, who thinks that they can influence me. name anything they've influenced me on. >> you have to be paid $675,000? >> well, i don't know. that's what they offered. so -- every secretary of state

>> but that's -- once you're in office and not running for an office. >> to be honest, i wasn't committed to running. i didn't -- i didn't know whether i would -- >> you didn't think you were going to run for president? >> i didn't. you know when i was sect several times i said, you know, i think i'm done. the circumstances, the concerns i had about the republicans taking back the white house because i think they wrecked what we achieved in the '90s. i did not want to see that happen again. >> hillary clinton, and bernie sanders will debate tonight. stephen colbert knows all about politics. he is the host, writer and executive producer of the late show. last night colbert said good-bye to another white house hopeful who dropped out of the race. >> also on the funeral pyre of politics this week was democratic candidate martin o'malley. or as you may know him -- do i

8:02 am
tragedy. >> and there will be surprises and you've got people like donald trump and bernie sanders. >> no you don't have people like donald trump. there are no people like donald trump. there is only donald trump. the greatest lie donald trump ever told is he was happy being second in iowa. now i don't believe him. up till now, everything in retrospect seems true compared to the enormity of that lie. >> i don't know if you saw like 7:14 a.m. yesterday he said he was going to be more statesman-like, you know, and then 90 minutes later, he was on his -- with what ted cruz is calling his twitter tantrum. >> well, a statement like that for trump is he's only going to follow -- >> trumper tantrum. >> does he remind you anything of the man from the colbert report? >> yeah, yeah. donald trump feels like my old character, who the old idea behind the colbert report was truthiness. if you just say it with enough conviction and emotion, it's truer than if it's factually correct. and that's really great.
8:03 am
because an audience just wants to be emotionally moved and trump is great at moving an audience. plus, he's got $10 billion to back it up. you know the whole thing about citizens united is that money equals speech. well he's got a $10 billion mouth. >> or so he says. >> well -- i know but -- >> i believe him. >> i believe him. charlie's right it is the gift that keeps on giving for you. i'm very curious about what you're going to do live, after the super bowl. >> oh, me too. well this is live right now, right? >> we're live. >> a preview. >> like this. about football. >> and there is no eight-second delay. >> and there's no eight-second delay this morning? wow. does that ever get you in trouble? because i think -- you need the eight seconds. >> we love trouble. we love trouble. >> well, we have -- >> stephen, you're right -- >> margo, robby, we've got will ferrell, key and peele. we'll have surprise guests. we'll have our review, jokes written during the super bowl about the super bowl. >> megyn kelly?
8:04 am
>> i think that's -- >> the only person on the planet who scares donald trump. it's fantastic. trump repellent. >> that's good. you guys are going to be writing jokes during the show? during the super bowl? >> during the super bowl. we'll be writing jokes about the game. >> how is that going to work? >> very fast, i hope. very fast. >> but how do you prepare -- >> we've got 20 minutes to write an hour show. can it be done? they said it couldn't be done. >> i believe in you and your team. >> you already tried doing that. >> we've tried doing it during one game. it seems to be -- >> how'd it work? >> i'm going to say great. it worked great. >> i believe you. >> can you give us a little preview? how much of it will be related to the game? >> a lot of it will be related to the game. depending on what people want to talk about. >> yeah >> you once said that the most important thing you've learned from show business was being to love the bomb. >> yeah, i had a teacher in chicago who said you've got to learn to love the bomb. meaning, not sort of -- if the show doesn't go well, like
8:05 am
if you're improvising and it doesn't go well you've got to not just sort of get through the fact it didn't go well, you've got to enjoy that it didn't -- and then once you can enjoy that it sucked then nothing can kill you. i'm hoping not to learn that again on sunday night. >> i know, i know. >> our problem is there's too much show already. even like without our jokes about the super bowl we're like six minutes long at this point and we essentially do a morning show, because after midnight, it's technically the next morning. >> yeah. >> do we have some of your monday morning show in case it goes a little long? >> absolutely. absolutely. >> are you a big super bowl guy? >> are you kidding? look at me. i didn't play ball? >> are you a closet athlete and we don't know about it? is super bowl normally a big day for you? >> i enjoy food. >> okay. >> i enjoy fried things. i enjoy dips. >> me, too. >> did you play football in south carolina? >> i played one day of football in south carolina. my friends were on the football team and my senior year of high school they said hey man, you're
8:06 am
on the road trips. i didn't realize just how hard they hit and one of my friends had the weightlifting record in school. and he had it in eighth grade. and our senior year the coach said to him first day, first grimage he looks at me, and points to me friend goes, you see that cornerback over there? i want you to kill him. there are no friends on the football field. so we lined up against each other, my friend goes, i'm sorry, man. i have to kill you. and he picked me up, crunched me on the ground, at the end of the day i said, coach, i don't think it's my game. >> i'm going home? >> i'm going for comedy. >> thank you so much. exactly. focused now on. >> we have pictures of you from your theater days. >> you do really? do i have a beard? >> you're going to thank me. >> hey! there i am. >> that's stephen colbert. >> that's stephen colbert was very serious. he had not started doing comedy yet. he had a beard. that's schwimmers at the top.
8:07 am
he had a beard. he wore a lot of black. i describe him as a poet/jerk. he was willing to like share his -- >> when did you lose the beard? >> right after that. right when i graduated. right when i needed to get a job i lost the beard. this is the '80s. beards were not popular then. as you could tell. i could only grow half of one. >> what was your life's goal back then stephen colbert? you and david schwimmer. i think that's great there's a picture of the two of you. what was your life goal? >> i thought i was going to like form a theater company, you know, do free shakespeare on the street. live in a studio. like never get married. never have kids. now i just love, i'm like a suburban dad. you know. >> you love your wife? >> i love my wife. i have three kids. which pair of khakis will i wear today. no i thought i was going to be like an artist essentially like, half street, you know, artist, half theater person. >> but did you like so many young comedians look at johnsy carson and say, that's where i'd love to be one day? >> i actually this is a really happy surprise that i ended up
8:08 am
but i will say i'm the youngest of 11 children. billy, eddie, murray, johnny, margaret, paul, jamie, lou, paul, peter steven. and my elder sisters mary and margo used to wake me up to make me watch johnny carson because they didn't want to watch it alone. so i was a little, three, four year old they wake me up to watch johnny carson. i loved dave. but -- >> so how could you ever -- >> yeah, yeah, there's no way johnny, especially, johnny -- dave was great because dave was different than johnny because dave was dumb. dave was like human. we all wanted to throw things off a building. >> i have to get back to the super bowl. you have a favorite. you're from south carolina, neighboring north carolina panthers, any crossover there? >> close to south carolina. >> close to south carolina. i like cam newton. you know. >> what did you think of cam newton's pants? >> not as good as charlie's pants.
