,, >> anybody for golf? estes park? if you do, you have to get around the course as far as the eye can see. >> and they play so they never let you play through. captioning sponsored by cbs >> hey, stephen. >> stephen: yeah, paul, what's up? >> did you see this? carrey fisher admitted to having an affair with harrison ford while filming "star wars." >> stephen: yeah, i did hear that. and, look, man, i've got a
10:36 pm
>> what is it, stephen? >> stephen: i never told anybody this, but when i was younger, i briefly had an affair with doyke notes. trust me, that thing he's holding. it ain't a flute. ( laughter ) >> when did this happen? >> stephen: i was working summer stock on a moisture farm, and port. >> that place is a wretched hive of scum and vill me. >> stephen: and love. ( laughter ) and love. anyway, one night i was in the canteen aand i just heard the most beautiful sounds coming from the back of the room, and i turned around and there he was. looking like a beautiful, upside down testicle.
10:37 pm
our eyes met. later in the night, he played me like a eskanel. you can look that up. >> so what happened to you guys? >> stephen: well, he went on the intergalactic circuit, and i went back to high school. >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, stephen welcomes marion cotillard. dev patel. and musical guest dwight yokam. featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: hey! thanks, everybody.
10:38 pm
>> stephen: good to see you. >> stephen! stephen! stephen! stephen! stephen! stephen! >> stephen: thank you, ladies and gentlemen. ( cheers ) thank you so much. ? ? ? thank you, folks. welcome to "the late show." please have a seat, everybody. welcome to "the late show"." i am your host, stephen colbert. well, i see from the level of my xanax bottle, it's been one week since the election of donald trump. of course, he is not president yet. for the next few months, that is barack obama, who is. ( cheers and applause ) nice of you to applaud for him,
10:39 pm
the country. he's 5,000 miles away in athenses, seen here getting a preview of what washington will look like in four years. ( applause ) meanwhile-- it's nice, it's nice. saves on maintenance. meanwhile, speaking of crumbling ruins, trump got some bad news today, because here in new york city, residents of three apartment buildings have voted to take the name off their buildings. ( cheers and applause ) just clink, clink, clink. they want a name that's less embarrassing, so they used the same letters to spell out "rectal pump." very nice. very nice. >> jon: i see that? >> stephen: yeah. which is where trump gets most of his ideas.
10:40 pm
seems to be going a little rough, because he has fired the head of his transition seam, chris christie, and replaced by mike pence. and, apparently, the sacking was ordered by trump's son-in-law, jared kushner, seen here firing your dad one day before christmas. so the soim, who has the ruler's ear is purging those who wronged his family. except i definitely don't want to imagine any of these people having sex. i just want to take a second. jared, i know you're trying to connect with your wife's dad, but can't you do normal son-in-law things. just drive to home depot while
10:41 pm
watching a college football game in silence. there's got to be something you have in common. hey, you both think ivanka's hot! talk about that ? cold-blooded ? we're not-- we're not-- we're not making that up, by the way. i didn't make up that. so, we're all left guessing who trump will appoint to his cabinet. yesterday, it looked like rudy guiliani was going to be secretary of state. today, it sounds like he's back to just being a pair of chattering teeth glued to a whoopie cushion. ( laughter ) ( applause ) today, there's speculation that trump's attorney general could be his former enemy, ted cruz after cruz was seen exiting trump tower yesterday. apparently, reporters are just hanging around the lobby of trump tower, making guesses based on who walks in and out the door. ( laughter ) my money's on attorney general pizza delivery guy. ( laughter ) ( applause ) but, just in case, if it is ted cruz, how would that work?
10:42 pm
or is it "lyin' attorney general ted cruz"? i'm not sure what the proper name is. either way, as attorney general, cruz could finally get to the bottom of just why his dad killed j.f.k. ( laughter ) ( applause ) gotta find out. he's the man. today, donald trump assured the public things are under control through his official spokes-twitter, saying, "very organized process taking place as i decide on my cabinet and many other positions. i am the only one who knows who the finalists are!" ( cheers and applause ) yes! trump, only trump, only trump the mag i was in knows who the finallests are. he's going to reveal the winners in a dramatic ceremony in the rose garden. "rudy guiliani, you're here for the right reasons. will you accept this state department?"
10:43 pm
popular vote, i would have campaigned in new york, florida and california and won even bigger and more easily." see, he didn't even want to win the popular vote, just like i didn't want a date for prom. ( laughter ) frees you up to make out with any girl there. if i wanted to, but i didn't feel like it. ( laughter ) now, i think that for the president-elect to be tweeting at all, it's it just feels strange, doesn't it? ( applause ) so why is trump doing it? well, a member of the transition team says he has a very good reason. >> well, i can tell you this: the pressure that has got to be on president-elect trump is immense, the enormity of the job ahead of him. and so i would have to say if this is his way of relaxing, god bless him. >> relaxing? >> absolutely.
10:44 pm
with and he finds this relaxing and his entertainment, let him go with it. >> stephen: is this really how we're going to treat the commander in chief? "he likes it. it's fun. okay? let him play with the button. it calms him down. it's shiny and red like a toy!" hhe paws at it. it relaxes to him? what happened to germany? he's relaxed anyway." now, i'm going to call (bleep) on this. ( applause ) twitter isn't trump's entertainment. it's his way around the press. and trump isn't just duck the press online. he's also ditching them in the real world. as the president-elect, donald trump is supposed to remain with what's called a protective press pool, which exists to document the movements of the president, particularly if there's something unexpected or significant happening. reporters need to be with the
10:45 pm
catastrophic happens. i'm sorry, in case something else catastrophic happens. but yesterday, yesterday. ( cheers and applause ) clapping for catastrophe! ( laughter ) but yesterday donald trump and his folks told reporters he was in for the night, then went out for a steak dinner. the only way we know is that a reporter managed to get into the restaurant because she made a reservation. don't worry, journalists-- you will have access to the president. just take this buzzer and go browse barnes & noble for a while. it will vibrate when your democracy is ready. ( applause ) ? ? ? ( cheers and applause ) we've got a great show for you tonight. stick around. marion cotillard is here. dev patel is here.

( laughter ). >> stephen: really? do you want to bring a date? is that the issue? >> jon: yeah, can i bring a date. >> stephen: yeah, you can bring a date. >> jon: so you want me to commit right now on tv? ( laughter ). >> stephen: yeah. ( laughter ) you can say no. you're not going to hurt my feelings. just say, "i can't make it. i'll catch you next year." >> jon: it's complicated. it's more complex than that.
10:52 pm
>> stephen: you'd like to make it. >> jon: yes. >> stephen: i'd like to make room for you. i have ton. my wife is putting the screws to me right now. she's like, "you've got to tell me." we're renting chairs and everything. >> jon: give me until after the taping. >> stephen: all right, if it's not you, i'm going to invite two of people here. >> jon: hey? >> stephen: no! snow noe! >> jon: what -- a even though it looks like hillary clinton will take the popular vote, we have to accept that the winner of this election was a washington outsider who no one thought had a shot at running this country. can pew. vladimir putin. because while donald trump's position on a lot of issues is unclear, he has a firm position on putin. i'm going to guess missionary. here's a little reminder. jim? >> putin calling trump a talented, very colorful person.
10:53 pm
"it is always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond." >> he called me a genius. he said, "donald trump is a genius, and he's going to be the leader of the party, and he's going to be the leader of the world," or something. he called me a genius. i'm going to disavow it? are you crazy? if he says great things about me, i'm going to say great things about him. he's been a leader far more than our president has been a leader. the man has very strong control over a country. >> stephen: yes, and soon he'll have very strong control over two countries. the c.i.a. says clearly russia hacked the democrats. and yesterday, michael rogers, the sitting head of the n.s.a., says the clinton campaign was targeted by a foreign power. >> this was not something that was done casually. this was not something that was done by chance. this was not a target that was selected purely arbitrarily. this was a conscious effort by a nation-state to attempt to achieve a specific effect. >> stephen: and immediately after the election, trump
10:54 pm
besties had a convothis week. taernl they talked about what the trump folks call, "the historical u.s.-russia relationship that dates back over 200 years." yes, for 200 years, when you think russia, you think friend. wait a second, what's another word for friend? >> the evil empire. >> stephen: thank you. ( applause ) ( applause ). >> stephen: that's the great communicator right there. >> jon: that's right, that's right. >> stephen: during their phone call, the new celebrity power couple-- i'm going with "donomir prumpin"-- discussed threats and challenges facing the united states, which were easy to remember because the threat, was talking to the challenge. the kremlin says that this is "part of joint efforts to normalize relations." don't normalize it! it's not normal! once again, it's weird. for pete's sake.
10:55 pm
our interests." lindsey graham said, "this calculation by trump unnerves me to my core." and lindsey graham doesn't have a core. i've done pilates with him. ( laughter ) and yesterday, john mccain released a blistering statement calling putin "a former k.g.b. agent who has plunged his country into tyranny, murdered his political opponents, invaded his neighbors, threatened america's allies, and attempted to undermine america's elections." and mccain knows all about undermining elections. ( laughter ) ( applause ) despite the fact we know vladimir putin's a bad guy, trump cartoonishly insists that he's a model for leadership. here to answer for this is cartoon donald trump. mr. cartoon president-elect, thank you so much for being here. >> happy to be here. hello, new york. thank you for your votes! >> stephen: actually, don't, don't, don't thank them for their vote.

10:57 pm
i've agreed to work with him on syria. >> and in return, i've agreed to call him "cool guy." >> what can i say? i'm a negotiator. >> stephen: carp toon, the donald, how can the next president of the united states embrace a leader who kills journalists and jails political opponents. >> i don't do that, do i? i don't. those reports are lies, and anyone who says otherwise will be jailed. >> stephen: you just got that answer from him. >> what? no, we're just friends! we're so close, we finish each other's... >> ...elections!
