tv The Late Show With Stephen Colbert CBS February 18, 2016 11:35pm-12:37am EST
his guests, tia leone and the insult comic dog. >> jon: stephen colbert! captioning sponsored by cbs ( band playing "late show" theme ) (cheers and applause) >> stephen: hey, everybody! whoo! hey! welcome to "the late show"! (cheers and applause) hello, everybody! (audience chanting stephen) down here, up there, up there, right there, out there! thanks so much, everybody! welcome to "the late show"! (cheers and applause)
i am your host, stephen colbert. shocking news tonight going to get the big celebrity feud everyone is talking about: donald trump versus the pope. and as america's foremost catholic, let me explain what happened. the pope is in mexico right now, where he was asked about donald trump's plan to build a border wall. and his holiness said, quote: "a person who thinks only about building walls wherever they may be and not of building bridges is not christian. this man is not christian if he has said things like that." (cheers and applause) then trump's okay because he has not said things like that. he has said exactly that. okay. because trump wants to build a wall around this country. i wonder where he could have gotten a crazy idea like that. maybe the vatican?!
(applause) boom! >> places (applause) i am in trouble. (laughter) of course, donald trump responded immediately. >> so the mexican government fed the pope a tremendous amount of stuff about "trump is not a good person." and the pope just-- can you i just got a call, as i'm walking up here. made a statement about you." what did the pope say?" i like the pope. i mean, was it good or bad? because if it's good, i like the pope. if it's bad, i don't like the pope. >> stephen: you've got to respect his honesty. it is like jesus said, "blessed are the poor, unless they said something bad about me, then screw 'em." (laughter) (cheers and applause)
mr. trump, mr. pope, is it possible that you guys are fighting because you have so much in common? after all, you both think you're infallible. you both sit on golden thrones and you both wear very silly things on your heads. (laughter) (applause) of course, trump had to have the last word. >> so i wrote this out very quickly about the pope. do you want to hear it? >> stephen: not really. because we have got a great show for you tonight. (cheers and applause) first, i'll be talking to the star of "madam secretary," teea leoni. (cheers and applause) yeah. then i'll sit down with the
(cheers and applause) then i'll be talking to my old friend triumph insult comic dog. (cheers and applause) ( band playing ) that band over there is jon batiste and the stay human experience. they are about to kick this off, but before they do, one more thing: a new study found that saying you have minority friends will make you appear less racist. at least that is what my buddy jose said. (laughter) (cheers and applause) >> announcer: tonight... stephen welcomes teea leoni! from hbo's togetherness, amanda peet! triumph the insult comic dog!
human"! and now it's time for "the late show" with stephen colbert! (cheers and applause) >> stephen: hey! thanks, everybody! (cheers and applause) thank you so much! well, i'm so glad you guys are here. there is nothing more important to me than being honest with my audience. i learned my lesson the night i tried to pass off a mop with sunglasses as leonardo dicaprio. though it worked out for the mop -- i hear he is dating kate upton. so i want to be up front with you and admit that, occasionally, we get paid to feature a sponsor's product on the show. but i have the same high
as i do for appearing nude on camera -- it has to be integral to the plot, or i have no choice. and tonight one of those things is true. but i think we have managed to make it so organic, you might not even notice. on a completely unrelated note, i am feeling a little thirsty right now. you know what would really hit the spot? my favorite beverage... the 2016 mini clubman! taste the steering wheel! with six doors and a massive trunk, the clubman is the biggest mini ever. in its surprisingly spacious interior we can fit: civil war re-enactors from opposing sides. that is two confederate soldiers in the front, because they started it, and three union soldiers in the back. they're five brothers from the same family, which is extra tragic. but there is a happy ending, because there is so much room in the clubman, they do not need to fight. because as lincoln never said, "a mini clubman divided against
not have to stand with all that space to sit." war is hell, but this car is heaven. that was tonight's commercial integration. (cheers and applause) but there are just so many stories out there, i can't possibly talk about them all. luckily, i don't have to decide any more because i'm relinquishing editorial control in my new segment: ( audience ) wheel! of! news! >> stephen: here's how this works. we've installed a giant spinning wheel on the ceiling of the ed sullivan theater with categories -- (cheers and applause) -- with categories
"sports," and "guacamole." (laughter) though if it lands on guacamole, that is fifty cents extra. when i pull this lever, the wheel spins, then i talk about whatever category it lands on. here's the thing. i didn't give the guys enough time to finish the dome. totally my fault. so here is what we're going to do. so this guy holding the pole right here -- (cheers and applause) this is brendan hurley. say hi to brendan, everybody! (cheering) brendan is asleep under my desk, ifthe bernie sanders thing the other night, he was under the desk feeding me sandwiches on
brendan is also a scenic on the show, and since we can't get the dome to work right tonight, he's going to help me with the model we based the dome on, this spinning wheel. we're going to use the model it was based on to do this tonight i'm going to spin the wheel and when it stops, i'll do the thing. you guys ready to play? (cheering) show business! (laughter) you have to make the clicky sound. >> okay. tick tick tick tick tick... tick... tick. >> stephen: keep ticking. tick tick tick tick tick... tick list... tick... >> stephen: okay. it landed on "cheese news."
>> stephen: the latest hard or even semisoft news about kurdleed dairy. this week, a shocking discovery from the parmesan wars, because the u.s.d.a. revealed that some cheese suppliers of grated parmesan cheese have been adding wood pulp. (audience reacts) is thatthat's right. that's what i said. your parmesan is sporting wood. now they explain this wood pulp is just cellulose which is used as an anti-clumping agent. and sure, "a little anti-clumping agent never hurt anyone." but sometimes it is a lot of it. a sample of parmesan from one grocery chain was 8.8% wood pulp. but on the plus side, your lasagna is as sturdy as an ikea bookshelf. now personally, i am outraged by this breach of trust. i don't check on what goes into my mouth, but i have always assumed someone does. now!
more news! okay. hold on. hold on. you spin it. do you have anything that pulls the lever? give me your other hand. ready in okay! >> tick, tick, tick, tick! >> stephen: oh, oh, oh! oh, looks like it might be mini clubman integration. no, it lands on "mental health." >> ding, ding, ding, ding! (laughter) >> stephen: okay. great, this is a topic that is not covered enough in the media, and it is important to take a moment to shine a light on it. a beautiful light like... the interior ambient lighting molded into the 2016 mini clubman doors! (cheers and applause) and that's it for "mental
let's spin again! >> tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick! (cheers and applause) >> tick... tick... tick... >> stephen: according to a recent study, people who are significantly overweight may perceive distances as being greater than they actually are. which explains the old joke "yo mamma is so fat, her depth perception is wildly inaccurate." (laughter) let's spin again! (cheers and applause) >> tick, tick, tick... >> stephen: click without context! jim! (barking) let's spin again! i will love you forever for
which one is this one? "switchblade laws!" like most knife news, this one comes from wisconsin. >> governor scott walker put pen to paper today to sign new legislation lifting the ban on concealed switchblades. the governor says it's a measure protecting freedom supported by the constitution. the ban on switchblades had been in effect since the 1950s. >> stephen: that's right. scott walker has lifted wisconsin's 60-year-old ban on concealed switchblades. i applaud the governor; switchblades are the important issue of 2016. because let's say you are just cruising down to the malt shop with your best gal, only to run into some toughs who want to race you for the pinks to your t-bird. you have got a constitutional right to take out your blade and slice that letter right off his varsity jacket. remember, rumbles can happen anytime, anywhere -- sock hops, five-and-dimes, the old aqueduct, jimmy's garage where they let you smoke after school. without your blade, you could end up deadsville, daddy-o. keep in mind, if you are new to
from hand to hand. that way they never know which hand you are coming at them with. gimme news... (cheers and applause) >> tick, tick, tick. tick, tick, tick. >> stephen: i want to warn our affiliates, we might be going long. >> tick, tick, tick, tick. >> stephen: national monuments! >> national monuments? tick, tick, ding! (laughter) >> stephen: the national park service says a philanthropist is donating $18.5 million to help restore the lincoln memorial. hopefully, that is enough to make lincoln stand up and talk -- like he does at disney world. personally, i think the money would be better spent on the washington monument. that thing looks nothing like him. there you go.
(cheers and applause) let's pretend i spun it! >> tick, tick, tick! >> stephen: five second saxophone solo, hit it, eddy! (cheers and applause) >> stephen: more news! "a recent study!" again. a recent study says humans and neanderthals interbred 50,000 years earlier than previously thought, proving something else is 50,000 years older than we thought: beer goggles. (laughter) want to try? we're going for entertainment. >> tick, tick, tick, tick, tick... tick... tick... tick... tick... tick... tick...
tick, tick... >> stephen: i've gone around all the way once. i don't think it's on here! >> ding! >> stephen: there it is! entertainment! (cheers and applause) the oscar producers are now promising that this telecast will be "the most diverse ever." that's right, people of every race, color, and creed will be on hand to give a trophy to whatever white person wins. (laughter) >> stephen: well, that's it, folks! let's give it one more spin! it better be on here! i don't know! (cheers and applause) there it is! ready? oh! commercial break! perfect!
leoni! this is a chick car. this is a gay car. this is a short man's car. this is a cute car. slow car. this is a single, young, professional's car. this car has no street cred. this car ain't hip hop! kidless. cute. small. this car doesn't care what you call it. sfx: cell phone vibrates. yeah? (sigh) you're okay... he's okay, he made it! jason.. what do you mean? we were very bad boys. alexa what's in the news? alexa: here's the news, "alecbaldwin and jason schwartzman were seen mooning paparazzi.baldwin threw his shoe at photographers before making arun for it".
alexa, will you order another pair of brescianis. reordering bresciani socks. can you send some lawyers or something? (moaning) ...alec? so my kids don't have to forage, got two jobs to pay a mortgage, and i've also got a brain. life's short, talk is cheap. i'll be working while you sleep. still don't think i've got a brain? you think a resume's enough? who'll step up when things get tough? don't you want that kind of brain? a degree is a degree. you're gonna want someone like me. but only if you have a brain. this turkey is natural? yeah. it's too good to be true. don't say that. it's called the 60 second six pack. it's called the abinator. it's called the pulsator. (buzzing sound) (groans) finally, something that's not too good to be true. it's oscar mayer natural turkey breast,
(cheers and applause) >> stephen: welcome back. (cheers and applause) welcome back! my first guest is a star of television and film, who now plays the lead role in the cbs drama "madam secretary." please welcome, teea leoni! (cheers and applause) >> stephen: lovely to have you on! lovely to have you here. >> thank you! >> stephen: that's some lovely bling you've got there. >> thank you. it's all real. >> stephen: i thought it was a dollar bill. i couldn't quite tell what that symbol was there. well, congratulations on "madam secretary." >> thank you. >> stephen: no secret to owe, when a lot of people see this, they think she's playing hillary clinton. >> yes. >> stephen: secretary of
>> stephen: powerful. blonde. >> stephen: yes. people think that. >> they do, but i promise you, i -- i didn't have hillary in mind. >> stephen: really? i think she maybe had hillary in mind. i'll prove it to you. we had her on a couple of months ago and this is what she said. roll the clip. >> stephen: what do you binge like? >> do i like "madam secretary." >> stephen: you do. i do. >> stephen: don't just say that because it's a cbs show. >> no, because i watch "madam secretary" and i watch "good wife." >> i would be lying if i said i didn't play that clip over and over again. >> stephen: have you learned anything about the state department playing this role? >> glee because people don't think about the state department a lot. it's part of the government we forget about. >> i think that's true and actually i think maybe the greatest compliment i got was
secretary of state which said thank you for making foreign policy less foreign. >> stephen: wow. i took it -- (cheers and applause) and i think that's somewhat true. >> stephen: she consults on the show, right? >> well, she was on the show, yes. and we got some stories out of her that were pretty great. >> stephen: does she think what you're doing is accurate? >> well, sometimes she gets a little mad at me. >> stephen: for what? just for, you know, not doing it right. (laughter) >> stephen: what are you doing wrong? that's not how i would ask for a drone strike! (laughter) what are you doing wrong? >> oh, gosh, i don't know. she's very picky, you know. she was secretary of state. she knows the gig and -- >> stephen: you don't get that gig without -- >> -- and she'll say, no, that would never happen. >> stephen: what have you done that would never happen?
already, season one. >> stephen: well, you look fabulous! >> thank you. >> stephen: you're also a mother. >> yes. >> stephen: would you rather negotiate as secretary of state with vladimir putin or with teenagers? because they can be like terrorists. (laughter) >> yes, it's true. i think i could negotiate with putin because i have teenagers. (applause) >> yes. i have a 13-year-old boy. putin's a breeze. yeah. >> stephen: i understand that your son sort of convinced you to take this gig. he said, mom, you've got to go it? (laughter) >> i hadn't worked in a few years and he said, you know, time -- >> yes. >> stephen: in essence, it
there, you know? >> stephen: i want this for you, mom! >> yes! and i took that as i thought that was a very beautiful moment between us and i said, okay, here i go! you know, and i did. i returned. you know, you have your ups and your downs. it's hard. you work these kind of hours and -- actually, i thought it was going very well, i will tell you this, until halloween, and my son, i said, so, baby, what are you going to be for halloween? he's not too old. he said, i'm going to be an old-fashioned lobster. (laughter) and the first thought, i thought, that's creative, that's good. i thought, oh, my god, i'm not there! he's smoking dope! (laughter) , like, this is a disaster! and this rage of guilt, like, i'm always working and clearly it's probably coke!
and i'm thinking and then i'm running and driving home and running it through my mind -- an old fashioned lobster, there will be the oven mits, that part's obvious. what's the rest of this thing going to be? and i walked in and he was an old fashioned mobster! (laughter) (applause) >> stephen: did you tell him you thought lobber? >> no. >> stephen: no? don't ever tell him you thought lobster. >> i won't and he's not watching because he's not impressed. >> stephen: good. dope? (laughter) stick around, i'd love to talk to you a little bit more. we'll be right back with more
(cheers and applause) every day women around the world spend millions of hours just collecting the water they need for their families. each limited edition stella artois chalice helps provide five years of clean water for someone in the developing world. i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine
from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for
(cheers and applause) >> stephen: we're back with the lovely and talented teea leoni! (cheers and applause) i understand one week from tonight you are turning 50 years old. congratulations. >> no, no, no. >> stephen: what? i'm turning 59. >> stephen: you're turning 59 years old? wow! wow! well, i mean, still congratulations, but -- i mean amazing! (laughter) >> here's the thing... i've figured out that women lie about their age. age. but they lie the wrong way! (laughter) >> stephen: are you not going to turn 59? >> no. >> stephen: you're actually turning 50? >> maybe. my point is --
if you lie like women going the wrong way -- >> stephen: so, say i'm turning 40. >> well, if you're turning 40, you look like crap. (laughter) >> stephen: yes. and if i say, i'm turning 59, people are like, wow! you look pretty good for 59! >> stephen: well you look pretty good for any age! (cheers and applause) >> thank you. >> stephen: did i understand your plan was not to be an actress that this was sort of a happy accident, that you were going to be an anthropologist? >> yes. >> stephen: there is a lot of different anthropology. were you going to study native peoples? >> yes! >> stephen: really? and i was very, very good at it. >> stephen: you were good at anthropology? >> i was good at it. >> stephen: oh, man, i have the anthropology game down! i can deal! do you want to anthropolojize? >> let's do it. >> stephen: i totally get your
>> you are so wrong! >> stephen: what kind of anthropology? >> well, yes, that sort of classic anthropology. i was doing it in college, i was very good at it. >> stephen: so why didn't you go for it? >> i was going to go for it and then my dad said to me, before you become an anthropologist, you should go to a cocktail party with a bunch of anthropologists. (laughter) >> stephen: what does that mean? >> that was my first thought. then it hit me and i thought, oh! you know, academics -- no offense -- but it was sort of -- i wasn't really cut out -- >> stephen: so you went to a cocktail party? how did you find one? (laughter) there is no craigslisting for anthropologists. so you hunted down these people -- >> no, i got it. i knew what he meant.
>> stephen: so your fall-back position was actress? that was the safe choice? >> no, that was just a little trick i played on my dad. but i think the advice that he gave me, he said, don't do something because you're good at it. do it because you're passionate about it and you will get good at it. and that was really smart. that was great advice. (cheers and applause) so i don't know, i mean, i still to this day -- >> stephen: yep. i didn't think i would make a better anthropologist than an actor. >> stephen: yeah? give me a favorite not your culture that you grew up in that interests you. >> the tiwi indians of new guinea. >> stephen: i knew immediately, yeah, yeah. (laughter) you would have been an extremely sexy anthropologist. >> wow! >> stephen: you really would have. >> thank you. >> stephen: you could have played yourself later. (laughter) teea, thank you so much for being here. >> thank you for having me.
