( laughter ) c.j. is. sorry, all other dogs. it's c.j. right now. now, we would have loved to have had c.j. on the show tonight, but he couldn't make it. he was out all night sniffing butt.

( applause ) >> stephen: which, again, is how old in human years? >> 105. >> stephen: well, you would never know it. now, does dexter's tongue ever go back in? >> it does go in. it just doesn't stay there pause
11:40 pm
beautiful story, barry, thank you so much. paul, let's go back over to you for a second. why do you think riley outperformed dexter last night? >> i think it's the ability to stand under her own power. ( laughter ) the judges really look for that. >> stephen: yeah, yeah. well, better luck next time, gentlemen. are you guys going to go back next year? >> oh, yeah, we'll go back. we'll give it another shot. >> stephen: barry, next year? >> we're taking it day by day.

11:41 pm
congratulations to all our winners. dexter, riley, excellent! speaking of "best in show," we have a great one for you the beautiful. ( cheers and applause ) i can just-- i could just do that all night. i could do it all night. we are very lucky to have a great show for you tonight. the beautiful and talented kate hudson is joining us tonight. i'll also talk with presidential candidate and ohio governor john kasich. and we'll have a performance by australian rocker courtney barnett. ( cheers and applause ) ( band playing ) hey, that over there, as always, is my friend jon batiste and stay human. say hi, everybody. they are about to push this show
11:42 pm
before they do, one more thing: isis is so low on money, that they've cut back on salary and perks like energy drinks and free snickers bars. oh, no. now they'll be hangry. >> tonight, stephen welcomes. kate hudson. governor john kasich. and a musical performance by courtney barnett. featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now it's time for "the late
11:43 pm
( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: thanks, everybody! thanks very much. >> stephen! stephen! stephen! stephen! >> stephen: stop! come on now! what's a man to do. >> jon: what's that? >> stephen: what's a man to do? you know what, folks, thanks so much. i watch the news a lot, i watch the news a lot, and it's becoming increasingly obvious that our politics is a contact sport. it's mano a mano between people who would deport you if you understand the phrase "mano a mano." the candidates are currently battling it out for the genteel voters of south carolina. my home state. oh, how i miss you! i love you! save me some shrimp!
11:44 pm
that's how we all talk down there. i love your peaches! ( laughter ) bernie sanders has been fighting an uphill battle against hillary clinton and donald trump is battling with anyone who makes eye contact with him. which means the only one who's safe is ben carson. and stoking the fires of political discontent is the media. you see, for people on tv conflict is our bred and butter, and america is both gluten and and america is both gluten and lactose intolerant. but we don't care. others must suffer for us to have our bloodsport. it's like "the hunger games." no, it's more than that. it's... "hungry for power games." welcome! yes, yes.
11:45 pm
"hungry for power games"." tributes, assemble! oh, there they are. there they are. vying to be champion of capital city. oh, how their ranks are thinning! the field is getting almost as small as l.g.b.l.t. voters for ted cruz. he's no friend of corridor thee. before i continue, i want to introduce my new co-host, caligula. caligula here, he is like many-- he is like many presidential candidates. when he first appears on the scene, he seems fierce, but first you realize dead on arrival. he's fine, he's fine. now, citizens, when last we met, i neglected to... sorry. my mouth couldn't wait.
11:46 pm
problem! anyway, i neglected to bid farewell to one of our boldest contestants, former pennsylvania senator and sunday school teacher who assigns homework, rick santorum, who recently announced his withdrawal from the race. of course< as a good catholic, withdrawal is the only method he approves of. no, no, no! as for the rest, last week, they pitched open battle in the arena of new hampshire. sadly, for many tributes, voters in the "live free or die" state said, "mmm, die." ( laughter ) the blood-letting began with new jersey governor and quasimodo's handsome brother, chris christie. ( laughter ) ( applause ) mmm! mmmm! in the granite state, he hosted
11:47 pm
public events. he really mingled with the people of new hampshire. but, evidently, to know him is to "him? no." ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) christie was campaigning on his blunt outspokenness, even adopting the slogan, "telling it like it is." sadly, donald trump stole his thunder by telling it like a nyquil-induced fever dream? but the governor shall not go alone into that dark night because he's being joined by seventh-place finisher, carly fiorina. yes, the voters' reaction to the former hewlett-packard c.e.o. was control-alt-good-bye. oh, carly, we hardly knew-ly! but she bravely stepped down, via facebook post, facebooking, "to young girls and women across
11:48 pm
to anyone... all right, i won't, then. moving on. sadly, i hear and i aboy. i hear and i obey. but, sadly, not all is fun and games in the "hungry for power games," because tonight, tragically, we must say goodbye to a man who has, from the very beginning, been the frontrunner of last place, former virginia governor jim gilmore. ( laughter ) ( applause ) is that him? is that him? i hope so. he looks good. he looks good. oh, there you go. here i go. the gilmentum has become gilnertia, possibly gilmentia. this one hits home especially hard. for me and caligula here. we thought he was unkillable. after all, gilmore didn't drop out after iowa, where he got a total of 12 votes.
11:49 pm
they used doughnuts. but then he went on to surge in new hampshire with 133 votes! that's over 11 times as many. why did you drop out, governor? at that rate, just seven states later, you would have hit ( laughter ) 2.5 billion votes, which is one for every pig that would have flown over your inauguration. a lot of gilmore voters here tonight, evidently. as is our custom, let us bid
11:50 pm
( laughter ) ( applause ) ( cheers ) farewell, brave tributes. ( cheers and applause ) fair well. your valor will not be forgotten. and your campaign debts will not be forgiven. we'll be right back with kate hudson. hi, i'd like to make a dep--
11:51 pm

11:56 pm
>> stephen: and you always speak glowingly about them. >> of course, but -- >> but they're getting on. how old are they now? >> well, i have a tween. >> stephen: so you're on the brink of madness. >> i heard someone go, "wow." yeah, it's kind of crazy. >> stephen: a tweep, have you ever gotten to the point where you have to go, "are you grounded! watch your tone." >> first of all, let's start with the fact that i literally five seconds ago was on facetime with his teacher going, "he did what?" >> stephen: wow. >> yeah, so this is my life-- let's start-- he's a great kid. >> stephen: i want to tell you something. >> i love him so much. >> stephen: i want to tell you something. he's going to find out you're telling this story, and he's going to go, "she did what?" "she does dwhat?" >> you know, they're your kids. you love them and then you can't stand them sometimes. that's just the truth. i had-- the other day-- and they're boys, too, so they get real rowdy and trying to get them to bed is a whole thing. so i've been starting to do this
11:57 pm
i'm reading the "grimms fairytales." >> stephen: that's dark stuff. >> but they're into it. they love it. they're jumping on the bed. i'm like, "guys, calm down. let's stop." you do that a couple of times and then you have to raise your shois voice. then it's, "stop! get down! stop it!" it turns into that. and then they do. and then it turns into, like, kicking and things and they're hitting each other. and then i'm like, "guys, guys." and for some reason rider did something to bing and ping started to cry. and i'm going, "bing, stop crying. there's no reason to cry." and then it's he hit me. and the next thing you know bing is not sick, he's not ill. he just throws up. and i love my bed. like, i love my bed. it's a real thing. >> stephen: it's your haven. >> my sheets, and i had just cleaned my sheets and it's cozy-- he threw up everywhere. and he thought it was hilarious. ( laughter )
11:58 pm
just throw up!" >> stephen: what did his brother do? >> then he threw up because it was so gross. ( laughter ) >> stephen: you live a glamulous life. oh, my god. >> and i was, literally, like, okay. these are the moments that tests as a parent. i was like get-get-get had get out of my room. i was like you're both-- get out. and they're like this. and they start walking out. and i'm sitting there, and it's, like, 9:00 at night now, and i have to clean my bed -- >> you're in a puddle of somebody else's vomit. >> yeah. but you know. you smell your kids' vomit and you sleep in it, and that's what you do as a mother. >> stephen: you are provide ago this is late at night-- you are providing birth control to so many people right now. ( cheers and applause ) with this story. >> you know what? i wouldn't change it for the world. wouldn't change it for the world. >> stephen: and you have a very happy life. >> and i'm still pretty happy.
11:59 pm
this is your book. there you are. i love the photo on the cover of this book, because you're looking at the photographer like, "how did you get past the rotwiellers? you're not here to steal my hat, are you?" what do you mean "pretty happy?" what does it mean to be "pretty happy?" >> but behind it i'm like, you're kind of cute. >> stephen: that's true. what does pretty happy mean? why do i want to be just pretty happy? >> i think because if we're crazy happy all the time there right? like, life doesn't really work >> stephen: sometimes your boys throw up on you. right. happy? is this really what you're like most of the time? >> i am pretty happy. but i'm a creative person. so i have my peaks and valleys. but i think that for me, it's more about motivating people, mostly women, to kind of look and connect with themselves and
12:00 am
themselves to be sort of healthier mentally and physically. >> stephen: you say you. ( cheers and applause ) >> but, like, to be real about it. >> stephen: be real about it. it says, "healthy ways to love your body." "love" is a strong word. are there healthy ways to like your body. >> yes. >> stephen: my body and i have been together a long time and it's a fine relationship, but the spark is gone. ( laughter ). >>un, i think my book could help you. >> stephen: really! can you, really? >> i do. >> stephen: could guys read this? >> my first-- actually, would you like to connect with yourself? >> stephen: i would love to connect with myself. >> because i marked a special page. >> stephen: okay, hit me. >> that is-- i made it interactive. so if you're doing it, if you're, like, going to actually do it, it's interactive, meaning this is the first step to changing the rest of your life. >> stephen: okay, what do we do? >> let's start with your drawing board. >> stephen: it's a quiz, it's a quiz.
12:01 am
quizes in here, but it's more like let's see where you're at. >> stephen: i can't fail this? i can't fail this? >> no, there's no failing. >> stephen: no wrong answers here. >> there's no failing. >> stephen: hit me then. >> well, there might be some failing. where are you right now? >> stephen: in my happy place. ( laughter ) okay. >> stephen: interesting. >> interesting. this is sort of like let's start the journey. >> stephen: got it. >> let's start to think about what we're eating, what we're doing, what we're thinking. >> stephen: got it. >> so i just ate... >> stephen: a white castle cake. ( applause ). >> okay. so you splurged. >> stephen: i can, i splurged. i'm a big star. ( laughter ) >> and after eating-- ( laughter ) after eating i felt... >> stephen: no longer hungry but not happy with myself. ( applause ). >> oh! see, we're getting somewhere.

"pretty happy: shame is good." okay, great. >> pretty shameful. the last time i exercised was... >> stephen: does-- does eating okay. >> no, it doesn't. the last time i had some quiet time to do nothing was... >> stephen: my daughter was born in 1995. i would say 1994, yeah.

12:20 am
but my point sit's sound bites. how are you going to elect a president on the basis of a clever sound bite, especially if the sound bite is designed to attack somebody else. look, let me just tell you so you understand. if i can't win by being fundamentally positive, what's the point in winning? ( cheers and applause ) i mean, ought to win -- >> okay, so what's the positive message? the positive message that i'm hearing so far is that i'm positive. but what's your positive vision for america? >> look, we have to balance budgets, have commonsense regulations. we've got to cut taxes -- >> so some regulation is okay. you're running as a republican and some regulation is okay. >> look, the republican party is my vehicle. it is not my master. ( cheers and applause ) it has never been. so here's the thing, stephen. >> stephen: boom, boom. i got a mic drop on that one. that's crazy. >> here's the thing. look i was the chairman of the budget committee when we balanced the federal budget. we had four years of a balanced budget. we paid down half a trillion of a national debt. >> stephen: that was under a

>> stephen: so you can work with a democrat? >> oh, yeah, yeah, you have to. >> stephen: should you be elected president? in the last 330 days you were in office, if a advocacy became open on the supreme court, would you look at the constitution, see the words, "the president shall," and go, "maybe later?" >> i'll tell you what the problem is, as soon as scalia died, it was one minute after his death and the politics started. we are so divided down there. and my approach is this-- i've sailed the president ought to withhold this and we're going to have an election -- >> wait, we had an election in 2012. >> can i finish? >> stephen: no, probably not. go ahead. >> all i'm saying is it's an opportunity for people to, number one, vote for president, and also have a say on who's going to be on the supreme court. if i were president, just like when i'm governor of ohio, you have to bring people together. and you can't have all this fighting back and forth like we have in washington. look, you can't solve these

you can't solve the border. you can't get the economy growing unless you have some sense of unity. >> stephen: so if you were president and you were president obama, you would say, "i will not appoint anyone." >> no-- we're not going to have this division. because i'm going to spend my time building bridges so we can grow this economy -- >> you said-- you said, if i got this right, you said the president should not appoint anyone unless they could be unanimously approved. >> i said acclaimed-- stephen, look, the president is going to send the nominee up. >> stephen: but no one will be unanimously approved. >> i'm talking about someone the overwhelming consensus says that's the person we want. >> stephen: we won't even get that with the president. how can we possibly get. ( cheers and applause ). >> look, you're going to have an election-- let me tell you, you're going to have an election now in before we know it the blink of an eye. and that person who is elected president will have the confirmation to appoint whoever they want, and i think it will be a more orderly, lespolitical

>> stephen: you don't think that presently exists in the constitution when it says, "the president shall appoint." >> no, he can't appoint. he can nominate. and the senate carries out their responsibility. >> stephen: it doesn't say the president can do it if it's not his last year. it says, "the president shall." >> all i'm saying is i'm tired of all the fighting. >> stephen: i'm not fighting with you. >> i'm talking about down there. >> stephen: in south carolina. they like fighting down there. ( laughter ). >> what i want to do is have respect between the parties again. i want them to stop demonizing one another, andiment to again to have everybody remember that we have to pull together, in my opinion, with conservative programs to raise the country. diit when i was budget chairman, diit in ohio. and i that's what i want to do and i see the fighting over the judge isn't going to work out. >> stephen: good luck, governor. thank you so much for being
