( laughter ) all right, let's do it. le

( laughter ) >> stephen: yeah. oh, it's just begun to happen baby. >> okay. >> stephen: yeah. >> stephen. >> stephen: yeah. >> i don't think my voice fits with your big stick. >> stephen: oh, okay, yeah, that's cool. have a great-- have a great show. i should-- i should get-- i should go. what was that? hey! that's a great idea! why don't we both didgeridoo. okay, we'll double do it. are you d.t.d.d.? are you down to double didgeridoo? get it, let's do it. >> i guess. >> stephen: okay, great, awesome. >> but i don't have the didgeridoo.
>> stephen: oh, really? what's that behind your ear? ( laughter ) here you go. five, six, seven, eight. >> announcer: it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, stephen welcomes matthew broderick, ali wentworth and musical guest fergie. 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 ) captioning sponsored by cbs
>> jon: hey! >> stephen: what's going on? philosophical. >> jon: philosophical. >> stephen: hey, everybody! welcome to "the late show." i am stephen colbert. happy friday! what else is there to say? ( cheers and applause ) you all ready for the weekend? i am. i absolutely am. you guys you heard about this donald trump guy? >> jon: uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh. >> stephen: it's crazy. he isn't even president yet, and donald trump is already saving jobs. for instance, he has done wonders for mine. ( laughter ) ( applause ) and yesterday-- ( cheers ) thank you! not worth it, but thank you. yesterday, trump was at the carrier air conditioning plant in indiana after saving 1,000 jobs from being shipped to mexico, sending a clear message
good-paying factory jobs, you're going to have to come here and take it from an american! dare you. and everyone-- he said he would do it. he did it. that was pretty impressive. i don't know how he did it. but it happened. and everyone was surprised by this carrier deal. even donald trump was surprised. because, and this is true, he didn't remember that he promised to do it. >> and they had a gentleman, worker, great guy, handsome guy, he was on, and it was like he didn't even know they were leaving. he said something to the effect, "no, we're not leaving because donald trump promised us that we're not leaving." and i never thought i made that promise. and i'm saying to myself, man. and then they played my statement, and i said, "carrier will never leave." but that was a euphenism. >>ph
>> jon: oh! oh! >> stephen: i'm not sure what a "euphenism" is. but i'm guessing it's a euphemism for something. point is, trump hadn't planned on doing this but then ended up doing it anyway, sort of like how he got elected president. ( laughter ). >> jon: hey! hey! hey. >> stephen: it shocked him. and he did it-- what? what? you're kidding! "it was a euphenism." and he was able to do this deal thanks to mike pence, who as governor of indiana, was able to offer carrier a tax break. so all trump has to do to save all of america's jobs is have one vice president from every state in the union. ( laughter ) of course, amongst all the good feelings, trump had a warning: >> companies are not going to leave the united states anymore without consequences. >> stephen: yes! carrier faced harsh consequences, like $7 io
so watch out, isis. knock off the nonsense or you're going to get pajama-grammed. ( laughter ) and ever since trump got elected, there's been a lot of attention on what's called the alt-right news blog. breitbart dot-- i'm not sure. breitbart.white, it's dot white. breitbart used to be run by trump's chief strategist, steve bannon. critics say the site is a hotbed of racist, sexist and anti- semitic views while supporters say exactly the same thing. ( laughter ) well, after getting a lot of backlash, kellogg's has announced they are pulling their ads from breitbart because it didn't align with the company values. really? the makers of frosted flakes doesn't agree with breitbart? you think they'd love a bright orange cartoon who promises to make the country grrrrrreat! ( cheers and applause )
>> jon: play it, tommy! play it, tommy! >> stephen: in response to kellogg's pulling ads, breitbart said they were sorry to see a valued advertiser go and would work to try to repair the relationship in the future. just kidding! they actually published this article title, "#dump kellogg's: breakfast brand blacklists breitbart, declares hate for 45,000,000 readers" and went on to say "if you serve kellogg's products to your family, you are serving up bigotry at your breakfast table." bigotry? come on. cereal is not bigotry. other than, obviously, lucky charms. that leprechaun is magically offensive! that trix rabbit's weird, too. keep him away from the kids. here's some happy news.
i have to admit, i'm kind of excited about this story. there's a guy here in manhattan who stole a bucket full of gold flakes worth $1.6 million off a truck. i don't know what gold flakes are. i assume it's donald trump's breakfast cereal? ( laughter ) >> jon: ain't no frosted flakes. >> stephen: this guy just walked up to the back of an armored truck and took it. it was the perfect crime, except for the dozens of cameras that filmed him doing it. here he is checking out the back of the truck. then he just grabs an 86-pound bucket of gold! run, bucket man, run! i like to imagine his "ocean's 11"-style heist plan: "all right, first, i assemble a crack team-- muscles, brains, chinese acrobat. here's the plan: i'm going to walk up to the bucket and take it, and then i'm going to have it." ( laughter ) all right, shoot some holes in that! shoot some holes in that! somebody get me some julia
the thing is-- that's how you get julia roberts like this. ( snaps fingers ) the thing is, this happened on september 29, and they still haven't caught the bucket-of- gold thief. i'm no detective, but have they checked at the end of a rainbow? ( laughter ) ( applause ) we've got a great show for you tonight. matthew broderick is here and when we come back, we have an important message from a furry hat. stick around.

( cheers and applause ) hey, you know, before the commercial break we were talking about that-- that donald trump guy? >> jon: yeah, yeah. >> stephen: more on that guy. i don't know what's going on with that guy. i don't know. one of the reasons i don't know about him is that he doesn't talk to the press. instead, he just tweets directly at them, things like, "if cuba is unwilling to make a better deal for the cuban people, the cuban american people and the u.s. as a whole, i will terminate deal." deal bad! trump smash deal! ( laughter ) trump's going to do all of his foreign policy via social media.
china, or he will swipe left. ( laughter ) and the twitter presidency is perfectly fine with the only member of the trump press corps that does get an interview with trump, this guy. >> stephen: yeah, if something bad happens, they'll just tweet it: "motorcade crashed in ditch. losing consciousness. sad." ( laughter ) fine, fine. it will be fine. ( cheers and applause ) here's the thing. i think trump taking to twitter all the time is just a way for him to get around the press. the way a dictator would go out on his balcony to issue decrees to the adoring masses below
which is upsetting to me because, you know-- democracy. but mainly, because he's clearing ripping off my segment, big furry hat. why issue decrees from my balcony, and then my staff puts those things on twitter. need proof he's ripping me off? he's wearing a permanent furry hat.
