( laughter ) ( cheering ) how's it going, jon. good to see you. hey, did you all see the big trump speech last night? i haven't seen that many angry white people since they cancelled a coldplay concert. ( laughter ) it's true. i have not.
11:36 pm
so here's the thing -- ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: larry? good to see you. this is my show. why are you doing the monologue? >> larry: oh. i thought that whoever leaves 11:30 p.m. at comedy central just gets the "late show." ( laughter ) ( applause ) i thought that's how it worked. >> stephen: no. >> larry: so, anyway. >> stephen: larry, larry. no. >> larry: it's because i'm black, isn't it? >> stephen: a little bit. >> announcer: it's "the late show" with stephen colbert! tonight stephen welcomes larry wilmore! chris noth! and musical guest sampha, featuring jon batiste and "stay human." now at the ed sullivan theater
11:37 pm
in new york city, it's stephen colbert! ( cheers and applause ) ♪ >> stephen: hey! hey, everybody! ♪ ( cheers and applause ) whoo! jon batiste and "stay human," everybody! ( cheers and applause ) hey! welcome to "the late show"! thank you so much! please, welcome to "the late show," everybody. i'm stephen colbert. happy to be here. please have a seat. hey, did you all see the big trump speech last night? i haven't seen that many angry white people since they cancelled a coldplay concert. the last 24 hours of donald trump has been an emotional roller coaster. you must be this crazy to ride.
11:38 pm
first, he was in mexico, looking for an ally. >> there are many improvements that could be made that would make both mexico and the united states stronger and keep industry in our hemisphere. >> stephen: that's not softening. trump has always called for a wall between the hemispheres -- and he will make the oceans pay for it. but as soon as he got back on u.s. soil, he was back to trump classic. a quick warning-- if you have any small children in the room, please place them in front of you as a human shield. jim? >> if these violent offenders cannot be sent home, our law enforcement officers have to release them into your communities. ( audience reacts ) those released include individuals convicted of killings, sexual assaults, rape, attempted murder, and child
11:39 pm
molestation. the result will be millions more illegal immigrants; thousands of more violent, horrible crimes; and total chaos and lawlessness. that's what's going to happen, as sure as you're standing there. ( laughter ) ( applause ) ( whispers ) >> stephen: is the bad man gone? ( laughter ) jimmy? do i have time to change my pants? because i am at code brown right now. okay. people, we are calling this a speech, but that implies he spoke. he really screamed, so i'm going to call it a screech. how does he change emotions so quickly? he went from mr. cool in mexico
11:40 pm
to thermonuclear explosion in like, an hour. i'm starting to think there might be more than one donald trump-- my theory: trump is actually three oompah-loompahs standing in a human pyramid inside his suit. they take turns on who gets to be the head. one of them is reasonable. and two of them really don't like immigrants. it would explain all his policy reversals, and his skin tone. and trump was just getting started yelling about foreigners. >> most incredibly because, to me, this is unbelievable, we have no idea who these people are, where they come from. i always say trojan horse. >> stephen: yes, a trojan horse. or trojan pinata. they're a crafty people. you know, they'll make it. it will be festive. they'll wheel it to the border and we'll hit it, but instead of candy falling out, it will be illegal immigrants!
11:41 pm
who will steal our jobs and our candy! point is, we can't accept them because they may not accept us. >> sometimes it is not going to work out. it is our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us. >> stephen: yeah, america has the right to choose immigrants who love us. and donald trump knows they're out there. he's already married two of them. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause ) come on! (piano riff) you know -- you know that's true! so to calm our fears and give us some new ones, trump laid out his ten-point immigration plan, and he started with the hits. >> we will build a great wall along the southern border.
11:42 pm
( chanting "build the wall" ) and mexico will pay for the wall. believe me. hundred percent. they don't know it yet, but they're going to pay for the wall. >> stephen: yes, mexico doesn't know it yet, but they're going to pay for the wall. he'll just sneak it onto the dinner check. ( as mexican president ) "let's see, we had the potato skins, cheeseburger, two diet cokes, a $50 billion border wall. was that for the table, right?" we all ordered that. after that, trump made a solemn scream to protect america from these monsters. >> we will terminate the obama administration's deadly -- and it is deadly -- non-enforcement policies that allow thousands of criminal aliens to freely roam our streets, walk around, do whatever they want to do, crime all over the place. >> stephen: yeah, they walk around, they crime all over the
11:43 pm
place. they crime over here, they crime over there, here a crime, there a crime, everywhere a crime-crime. ( applause ) there is no other way to say it! but trump is ready to make us safe on day one. >> there are at least two million -- two million, think of it-- criminal aliens now inside of our country. two million people, criminal aliens. ( audience reacts ) we will begin moving them out day one, as soon as i take office. day one, my first hour in office, those people are gone! >> stephen: gone! gone, now!
11:44 pm
a lot of people have said it's impossible to deport 11 million illegal immigrants, so trump's only going to do 2 million in the first hour. it helps to break down a big task into manageable chunks. point is, he's going to do it. because trump is sick and tired of america getting pushed around by those huddled masses yearning to breathe free. >> hard to believe with the power we have, hard to believe. we're like the big bully that keeps getting beat up. you ever see that? the big bully that keeps getting beat up. >> stephen: you know how poor, defenseless bullies are always getting beat up. remember how bad you felt when that mean karate kid beat the crap out of cobra kai? that movie ended horribly! this time, the bullies win. "trump 2016: sweep the leg." ( cheers and applause ) (piano riff)
11:45 pm
no mercy! so this is a bad situation, but, don't worry, trump has a loud solution. >> i call it extreme vetting, right? extreme vetting. i want extreme. it's going to be so tough, and if somebody comes in, that's fine, but they're going to be good. it's extreme. >> stephen: yes, extreme extreme, extreme, extreme vetting. ( air guitar ) ( applause ) so extreme! i'm talking underwater paperwork, citizenship test on a skateboard, and no one gets in
11:46 pm
unless they can complete the "american ninja warriors" course. as always, our extreme vetting will be sponsored by mountain dew baja blast. ( applause ) ( laughter ) of course donald trump's not the only news out there. turning to the "where are they now" file, hillary clinton is still running for president. she's been keeping a low profile, and it could be because of the scandals that continue to swirl around the clinton foundation -- the non-profit charity she and bill set up to ensure that future generations would have an ample supply of clinton scandals. the latest is an investigation that found bill clinton used taxpayer cash to supplement the pay of clinton foundation aides, and to buy the group's i.t.
11:47 pm
equipment, including servers. servers? stop it! if your name is clinton, stay away from servers. that goes for hillary upgrading her data storage, or bill talking to the waitress at applebee's. don't do it! just go to the kitchen! get your own hot wings. ( applause ) now, it turns out bill got this money through something called the former president's act, which is like a pension that congress passed to "maintain the dignity" of the presidency by helping former commanders-in-chief avoid hard times. it's so important. you don't want some weird old president wandering around your neighborhood, pardoning pigeons for a nickel. well, it turns out, since bill -- here you go, give me $5, i'll tell you the launch codes. all right. ( laughter ) well, it turns out, since bill clinton left office, he has made unprecedented use of the former president's act, requesting
11:48 pm
$16 million, more than any of the other living former presidents. makes sense. it costs more to run a global charity than what george w. bush was requesting: ( as w. bush ) i need $20 for my foundation to buy art supplies so i can continue to paint my toes in the bathtub. but -- i got to work on my george bush impression. ( laughter ) but as bad as this all looks for bill and hillary, the investigation "did not reveal anything illegal"-- which, at this point, really should be hillary's campaign slogan. ( laughter ) stick around. we'll be right back with larry. wilmore. ( cheers and applause ) ♪ nexium 24hr is now the #1 choice of doctors and pharmacists

thanks for making time to be here, man. >> thanks for having me. >> stephen: i'm going to take a page out of your book. let's keep it 100. how do you feel about the sudden and unexpected cancellation? how do you feel about that? >> are you trying to get me canceled again, stephen? what's going on? >> stephen: no, just want you to keep it 100. >> i will. i am very disappointed. i thought we would be on through the election. you never know what's going to happen. it's tough when you do a tv show. you're thankful to do a tv, but we haven't talked to them in a while and you're the only one in a relationship that didn't know it was over. how's it going, larry? great! you know? ( laughter ) so i'm sad but proud of the work we did. i like to live in the abundance of being grateful for what we had to do and i hope i can do
11:55 pm
something like that again sometime. ( applause ) i will say i am very upset they did cancel a brother's show when all the best worst racial stuff started happening. hillary calls trump a bigot, he calls her a bigot, he's going on his mexican tour, you've got a quarterback that won't stand for the nationa national anthem fore issues. the best race stuff happens when i lose my show. >> stephen: always the last place you look. >> yeah. ( laughter ) >> stephen: one of the things i liked from the first moment the show was on the air, i love this shot. i love that map back here. that spoke volumes. why did you make that chose? >> steve bodo who is on "the daily show" -- >> stephen: great guy, yeah. people asked me, why is the map upside down?
11:56 pm
i said i disagree with your premise. upside down is just an opinion. if you were out in space, it might not have any orientation. we've just agreed as a culture to call that a certain way. but if i disagree with your presently its on that and decide to look at the world in any way that i want, then that's what our show is. our show is we're going to look at the world in a different way. >> stephen: i understand it. what happened to this map? i love this map. >> i have no idea. >> stephen: i hope no one stored it this way because that would be very upsetting. that makes no sense to me now. >> mr. wilmore, you forgot your map! ( laughter ) >> stephen: jon stewart was on your last show. >> yes. >> stephen: and he said the show started a conversation. what conversation do you hope you were starting and how do you think the conversation can continue. >> jon was great. >> stephen: not a fan. >> larry: yeah, i don't want to get in that tiff.
11:57 pm
( laughter ) john is great. >> stephen: super supportive. >> larry: frustratingly right. >> stephen: very few times when i've gone to the mat with him about this is not going to work comedically, i cannot say enough words on the number of times he was right and i was wrong. >> jon said he wanted to be a show where people could be on that don't get to be on all the time, hear voices that don't get to be heard. jon said, larry, you can go to any problem in the country now and if you scratch it hard enough, it will probably be race, class or gender that will be the issue. i never thought of it that way. he felt it would be nice to do these issues on the show. they were tough issues, but we felt we could do a comedy show talking about the hardest things to talk about in this country. >> stephen: one of the things you were talking about that i liked on your show is what you
11:58 pm
called the unblackening. >> larry: yes. >> stephen: explain to people who may not know what the unblackening is. >> larry: well, that is president obama leaving the white house. the white house is currently being unblackenned. >> stephen: it's still at peak blackening right now. >> larry: i would call it max blackening at this point. it is maxed out. i told the president make sure he takes the culturally appropriate stuff out of the white house. you don't want someone coming in going, cocoa butter, what is this? get that stuff out. ( laughter ) >> stephen: that sounds delicious to me. >> yeah, well, it can be. >> stephen: without going into any details that i don't think are appropriate is that i was lucky enough to be invited to the president's birthday party a couple of weeks ago. >> i guess the brother's invitation got lost in the mail.
11:59 pm
not like i was busy doing anything. ( laughter ) >> stephen: one of the things, he looked around the room and said, huh, this is probably as diverse of party that ever had been at the white house. i had to go over to the portrait of mckinley and explain. he looked surprised and shocked. >> larry: it's great when the white people make it a diverse party. >> stephen: felt that way. >> larry: but it is one to have the lasting legacies of the president. people ask me what do i think would be the best thing to come out of the presidency? i think it's obama being the president. when office kid you couldn't even think of a black man being a quarterback. now to seeing him leading the free world, words can't express it. the fact that kids won't even question that that's an issue. now it may happen with a woman in the white house. that it won't be an issue that a
12:00 am
woman can lead the country. it won't be a question anymore. ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: well, that leads me to another subject here, which is that you and i both hosted the white house accordance dinner. >> eyes -- white house correspondents dinner. >> yes, when you called president bush your nigger, i couldn't believe that. i stole it from you so i just wanted to give you props. >> stephen: you got it, baby, you got it. that is really tough. >> yes. >> stephen: what people don't understand is all they ever see -- there is 3,000 people in that room. >> larry: i had news people flipping me off. >> stephen: no way.
12:01 am
don lemon hugged me afterwards, wolf blitzer was really upset. >> stephen: he was -- really -- up-- set! >> larry: yes. >> stephen: i really hate that ass (bleep) larry wilmore! ( applause ) we won't complete that because i said the word separately. >> larry: stephen, that was my whole joke. i did a joke about obama and drones. >> stephen: it's newt fun night unless you make fun of somebody in the room. >> larry: i thought it was a roast. >> stephen: those people have the nuclear launch codes but they can't take a (bleep) joke. >> larry: yeah! ( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: i want to rule the world but heaven forbid you should take a poke at me. >> larry: i don't know.
12:02 am
>> stephen: yeah. >> larry: it was fun, though. >> stephen: you got to hang around afterwards. >> larry: yeah. >> stephen: you can't leave the room. it's not like there is a limo waiting for you to dive through the window and get away, as much as you want to. ( laughter ) >> larry: and because of that type of room you don't know how you did, because there were a number of people that weren't too happy with what you did. they don't want to look at you. you don't want to name animals you might have to eat if you live on a farm. they don't want to make eye contact because you might have to be dismissed. then people in your family say, it was great. i don't know if i can trust you. you love me. gets in the way of a real opinion. >> stephen: harry, a great actor, a very dignified talented actor. we went to university together. i had not seen larry for 20 years. he was there the day i did it.
12:03 am
i was on the dayias and he comes up and says, that was really good. i said, it's great to see you, i don't think these people liked it. harry has such a fan tact voice. he leans back and he goes (bleep) these people. ( laughter ) >> larry: he said it there? >> stephen: he said it there. >> larry: oh, my god! that's fantastic! ( applause ) >> stephen: so, larry. (bleep) these people. >> larry: yes! >> stephen: that was good. >> larry: that's what i'm talking about. >> stephen: larry wilmore, everybody! we'll be right back with chris noth! ♪ ( cheers and applause )
