Its "the late show with
Stephen Colbert."

Tonight, post-midterm melt down.

Plus, Stephen welcomes
Ricky gervais

bianna golodryga
and chef Flynn mcgarry.

Featuring Jon batiste and stay

And now, live on tape from the
ed Sullivan theater in New York

city, its Stephen Colbert!

( Cheers and applause )
Stephen: Wooo!

How are you?

Nice, nice, nice, nice.

Please, sit down, everybody!

Up there!

Down here!

Welcome to "the late show,"
ladies and gentlemen.

Im your host, Stephen Colbert.

( Cheers and applause )
I dont know why youre excited,

but that blue wave keeps
crashing on the beach.

In the last 24 hours, two tight
house races have been called for

democrats, one in California and
one in New Jersey.

( Cheers and applause )
Jon: They call them.

Stephen: You enjoy that?

I enjoyed that.

You know whos not enjoying last
Tuesdays election?

The guy who lost, Donald Trump.

Sources say stung by the
midterms and nervous about

Mueller, Trump has retreated
into a cocoon of bitterness

and resentment.

Yes, Trump is ending his larval
stage and in a few weeks will

emerge as a hideous race-baiting

( Laughter )
One... one aide says the

president is consumed by "trying
to decide who to blame" for

Republicans election losses.


Does he not own a mirror?

- ( Laughter ) (
- As Trump )

"You did it, mirror man.

Stop copying everything I say
and do, okay."

With Trump lashing out in every
direction, its no wonder that

"most staffers are trying to
avoid him."

Yes, theyre all holed up in the
one place hell never go: A

salad bar.

( Laughter )
But this is all par for the


As one official who used to work
in the White House put it, "the

Trump administration has been so
consistently off the rails that

days like today just blend into
everything else."

Ah, just one of those typical
days where each moment of hollow

malice blends into the next,
when the future and past narrow

into a speck of dim rage racing
forever into the vacuum of the

presidents mangled,
unquenchable ego.

Mondays, am I right?

( Cheers and applause )
And its not just the election.

The president caught a lot of
flack for bailing on the

wreath-laying ceremony in France
on Saturday.

And "Trump told aides he thought
he looked terrible and blamed

his chief of staffs office for
not counseling him that skipping

the cemetery visit would be a
public relations nightmare."

( Laughter ) (

as Trump )

"Look, why didnt you tell me
that not honoring fallen

soldiers on veterans day would
make me look bad?

Now, if youll excuse me, im
going to stick my tongue in that

light socket.

Nobody talk till ive done it."

Trumps also getting criticized
for his latest hire: Acting

Attorney General and roid-rage
Lima bean...

( Laughter ) Matt Whitaker.

Were learning some interesting
stuff about whitakers past.

For instance, his 2014 run for
the g.O.P. Senate nomination in


Now, he lost, but while
campaigning, heres what

he said was criteria for his

ID like to see things like
their worldview, what informs


How have they lived their life?

Are they people of faith?

Do they have a biblical view of

Which I think is very important
because we all know that our


Levitical or new testament?

( Laughter )
Im a new testament, and

what I know is... is, as long as
they have that worldview, that

theyll be a good judge.

Stephen: In the opinion of
the present Attorney General of

the United States, if youre not
a Christian, you wont be a good


But its right there in the

( Laughter )
Now, I want to warn...

( Cheers and applause )
Constitution lovers.

Jon: Constitution fans
right there in the house.

Stephen: I want to warn our
viewers that have allergies that

this next headline is nuts.

Because today we learned that
the acting Attorney General of

these United States, Matthew
Whitaker, is steeped in time

travel and bigfoot.

Now, before we go any further,
I just want to say that theres

serious debate over whether
whitakers appointment is

unconstitutional and might
obstruct justice.

But, tonight, daddy dont give a

I want to talk about time-
traveling big foot man!

Heres the deal... this is true...
Whitaker was a paid advisor and

hot-tub pitchman for a company
called world patent marketing.

Well, in 2013, whitakers
company claimed to have "d.N.A.

Evidence proving that bigfoot

Now, quick aside: I worked for
"the daily show" way back in the

day, before Craig kilbourn.

I interviewed a lot bigfoot
enthusiasts in my day.

For instance once I interviewed
a guy who said bigfoot was in

dangers and we had to have
breeding pairs to breed them in

activity to save the species.

Another time I interviewed a guy
who said there were too many


They were overpopulating and bee
had to cull the herds to save

the species.

Fun fact: I interviewed those
guys on the same day, and either

one of them would make a better
Attorney General than Matt

Whitaker because...

cheers and applause )

Because I know they both
believed it.

Whitaker might have just been
cashing a check to push this

bull, because he was on the paid
advisory board of this

company that was so all-in on
bigfoot, they had a web site

selling bigfoot paraphernalia
and planned a celebrity event

called "you have been

But Whitaker wasnt just working
for bigfoot hucksters.

They were also selling a time
travel, which they said could be

"possible, perhaps within the
next decade," suggesting users

might "relive moments from your
past" or "visit your future."

It is possible.

It is possible.

Lets visit the future together.

Here we go.

( Laughter ) (

applause )

And here we are.

( Cheers ) Wow!


I didnt see me hosting this

Now, you might wonder, how could
anyone fall for such an odorous

pile of bigfoot poop?

Well, theres a video which has
a lot of text in it that they

used to sell the idea of time

Im going to read the text out
loud for you as we show it.

Jim: What if...

Time travel wasnt just an idea
but a reality?

What would you do?

Which way would you go?

Would you relive moments from
your past... or visit your

douchebag future?

Step into the fourth dimension.

Wall street said we couldnt
do it."

Also, science street,
engineering street, physics

street, and the federal trade
commission, because... because,

again, whitakers company was
shut down for

defrauding investors out of
$26 million.

So, this has all been fun,

Bigfoot, time travel.


You cant ask for more.

And yet, the Matt Whitaker
giveth because I invite you now

to join me in viewing the best
product the new Attorney General

of the United States ever helped
sell the world: The extra-deep

"masculine toilet" for the

( Laughter )
Lord, I dont know what I did to

deserve Matthew Whitaker, but I
want to thank you from the

bottom of my heart and from the
bottom of my I now see feminine


The idea behind this actual
patent application supported by

the Attorney General of the
United States is that

well-endowed men would dip a,
lets say, toe in the water of a

regular toilet.

And heres the actual patent
application drawing, showing

that on the manly throne, the
distance between the rim and the

water is at least 12 inches.

Now, to the men out there: If
you need this toilet, youre not

"extra masculine."

You are in need of medical

Either that, or...

Youre bigfoot!

And this whole thing... this
whole thing was just a clever

plan to lure
sasquatch out of the woods with

the promise of a toilet that
could finally accommodate his

mighty sequoia.

( Laughter )
Youve been squatched!

( Cheers and applause )
All true.

All true.

Not make any of this up.

I also want to point out that
whenever I try to Google hints

for the new "Zelda" game at
work, I get blocked by the CBS


But this morning, and this is
true, the writers

working on this script googled
"worlds longest penis"... no


Also, congratulations to Jonah
falcon of Brooklyn, New York.

Contact the Attorney General
about a toilet that might be

right for you.

Heres their description of,
again, the masculine toilet.

"The average male genitalia is
between five and six inches.

However, this invention is
designed for those of us who

measure longer than that."

Did you catch that?

"Those of us?"
Oh, oh, did I let the cat out of

the bag?

By the way, its the size of
a cat.

( Laughter )
You dont want to hear about the


Now, I know what youre

Youre thinking this is great
news for my penis, but does the

Attorney General of the united
states, Matt Whitaker, have

anything for my testicles?

Dont worry.

World patent marketing also had
a product called snowballs,

cooling underwear designed to
maximize fertility by lowering

the temperature of your
testicles and help you optimize

the production of natural

Yes, snowballs make you more
fertile, assuming you can find a

woman willing to have sex with
your ice-cold junk.

( Laughter ) (

applause )

♪ Frosty the snowman
so, how does a flim-flam man

like Matt Whitaker become the
top law enforcement officer of

the United States?

Well, obviously, the same way
you sell time travel... with a


What if?

Not only did the Mueller
investigation end, what if

Robert Mueller was never born?

Also, maybe dont have Eric?

Wall street said we couldnt
do it.

So did Albert Einstein.

Way to go, Einstein.

Create your own future time


Extra-masculine toilets.

Can bigfoot stop Robert Mueller
on a time-travelling, extra-

masculine toilet?

If you think this is a fantasy,
you have some sick fantasies.

Step into the 12-inch dimension.

Matt Whitaker for attorney

Of the future.

We have the technology.

Technology powered by Jesus."

( Title flushing ) (

cheers and applause )

Weve got a great show for you

Ricky gervais is here.

But when we return, Trump is
about to do something weird.

Stick around.

( Band playing ) (

cheers and applause )

Stephen: Hey, everybody,
welcome back!

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome
back to the show, everybody.

You know, what is this

On Friday, Trump is awarding the
presidential medals of freedom.

Its the highest honor a
civilian can receive from the


Except, of course, never being
photographed in the same room

with him.

The thing is, its a really
weird chex mix of recipients,

including n.F.L. Hall of famers
Roger staubach and Allan page.

Also, Miriam adelson, wife of
billionaire republican donor

Sheldon adelson; Senator orrin
hatch; The late supreme court

justice antonin scalia; Babe
Ruth; And Elvis.

Thats a crazy list of people (

laughter )

The only thing they all have in
common is none of them know what

orrin hatch did to get the
presidential medal of freedom.

These presidential medals of
freedom are kind of like the

roses on "the bachelor" in that
its not normal to give them to

this many dead people.

And, yet, Elvis is being honored
for defining American culture to

billions of adoring fans around
the world.

Or maybe the president has
secret files that Elvis is

still alive, and hes just doing
this to flush him out.

That would explain why he left
the medal under a box propped up

by a stick.

( Laughter )
Youve been squatched!

So, what were the criteria for
putting together such a random

grouping of people?

Well, its completely at the
presidents discretion and...

Wait, im being told trumps
just added more recipients,

including kid rock, tan mom, guy
fieri, Ronald McDonald, those

fat motorcycle twins, a porn
star who didnt talk, and a

bucket of chicken.

( Laughter ) (

as Trump )

"Bucket of chicken, bucket...
Bucket of chicken, today we

You can say that.

That will be fine.

( Laughter )
Would you... would you describe

your outlook towards death as

I just think theres no choice.

I cant... you cant think about

We are going to die.

Were all going to die.

Stephen: Is that a British
outlook, particularly British.

I dont think so, I dont
think so.

I think most people in britain...
I dont want to die!

I... I love living!

Its brilliant!

Its the best thing ever.


( Laughter ).

Stephen: Yeah.

Something instead of nothing is
definitely better.


But I mean... and I think people
on Twitter they know im an

atheist and they say things
like, "what was it like after

you die?"
And I said, "what was like the

13.5 billion years before you
were born?

I think its like that."

I think its like tourists.

We didnt exist for 13.5 billion
years, then we have 80, 90

years, if were licky and we go
back to never existing again so

you have to make the most of it.

Its amaze, life.

Its brilliant.

Theres so much to live for.

( Cheers and applause ).

Stephen: I like the before
we were here the same as after

were here.

Oh, thats interesting.

So you say youre an atheist.

Still an atheist?

Has that softened in any way,
your 80ism.

I only believe in three or
four god.


Stephen: As you approach
your final boards as they say,

you dont say, may maybe ill
hedge my bets and light a


Just in case.

Like pascalls wager.

People say, "why dont you
pray just in case theres a


And I say, "why dont you hang
garlic over your door in case

theres a Dracula."

I have no problem with praying

Stephen: If 95% of people
in America believed there was a

Dracula, I might hang a garlic
on my door.

Its not... its not the same.


It has nothing to do with the
credibility of the truth.

Has to do with the plafort idea.

Stephen: Right, because the
majority is always sane.

Well, exactly, yeah.

( Applause ).

Stephen: Thats the herd

Imagine if you were the only
person in the world to believe

in god, it would be odd,
wouldnt it?

Stephen: Well, I would be

I would be committed to an
insane asylum.

And thats you saying, that
not me.

You do believe in god.

Stephen: I do believe in
god, yeah.


Exactly that.

Its... and there are so many
different god to believe in.

Stephen: Yeah.

( Laughter )
If you had to... how about this...

If you had to pick a god...

If you had to pick a god, and

You cant say Stan Lee.

If you had to pick a god, who
would you pick?

Stephen: I said you cant

pick Stan Lee.

So why Thor?

Big hammer.

Stephen: Is there any part
of the Jesus story that you


I love Jesus.

I thought it was great.

I grew up, I was Christian until
I was about eight.

Stephen: Eight.


Stephen: Thats pretty
early to toss out the baby Jesus

with the bath water.

What... what... what turned you
around there, kid?

I remember I was doing Bible
studies and my brother came in,

he was older than me, he was
about 11 years older than me,

and he said, "why do you believe
in god?"

And my mom went, "Bob."

And I knew she was stopping him
telling me something.

And I thought about it, and
within about an hour, thats how

it worked out.

( Laughter ).

Stephen: Thats... oh, okay.

All right.

Thats interesting.


Stephen: Yeah.

No, I... I like the idea of

I love the idea of them, you
know, Jesus...

Stephen: You like sermon on
the mount.

I like Jesus, not because he
was half-god or whitewater?

Stephen: Half god.

Well, I dont know, do I?

I dont know.

What was he, all god, wasnt he.

Stephen: God from god,
light from light.

Its just a... its just a parlor

Its just a parlor trick.

Its a crowd pleaser.

I do the nicean creed to warm up
the audience every night.

Well do confession of faith and

I like the idea of it.

I like the fact he was a kind
person and all that.

But as Gandhi said, you know, "I
like your Christ.

I do not like your christians.

They are so unlike your Christ."

And I think the problem is... do
you know what I mean, though?

Stephen: Sure.

Im a Christian.

Im totally un-chist like.

There are good and bad
christians, and there are good

and bad atheists.

And I think god has nothing to
do with whether you are good or


Stephen: If god doesnt
give you comfort, what does?

Dogs are amaze ago yeah,

unconditional love.


Same as... same as your guy.

But if you dont love dog

It still loves you.

It licks you.

Stephen: It might be upset

It might just be sad.

Were going to make beats.

Stephen: I love beats.

First im told we have to
pout these goggles and gloves.

Stephen: These are buzz

Which is a great way to start
cooking some root vegetables.

And gloves.

Stephen: Now why... why do I
need to wear goggles to cook


You dont want the red in
your eye s.

Stephen: All right.

So, essentially, we have
beats, theyve been braised,

soaked, and dried and we do that
to them twice.

Stephen: Wait a second,
theyve been braised, smoked,

and dried and we rehydrate them,
dry them again, and smoke them


Stephen: Okay, they are
hard to kill, evidently.


So that is the beat we have

Stephen: Theres the beat?

Youre going to take your
pair of tweezers.


Youre going to stab the beat.

Stephen: Done.

Youre going to dip it into
the liquid nitrogen.

Stephen: We have liquid



Its freezing just the outside
of the beat.

Stephen: Okay.

Now youre going to pick it
back out, and dip it in this,

which is bees wax.

Stephen: Excellent now, why
did I do that?

( Laughter )
Because I do not associate... and

im sure this is going to be


Stephen: I dont associate
beeswax with deliciousness.

It turns out it is.

Goggles off now?

Goggles off.

I think were safe.

Essentially we do that.

Its a very traditional way of
preserving things.

We do that and let them age for
two weeks.

We hang them...
Stephen: Wait.

So I dont eat this for two

You dont eat this for two

You have to wait two more weeks.

Stephen: I understand I
shouldnt eat fast food, but

thats ridiculous.

After two weeks, we have them

Stephen: Theyve been in
there for two weeks.

Now why, why, on gods green
earth did I wait two weeks to

eat it?

To eat this.

I cant really tell you.

But it sounds really good.

Doesnt it?

Two-week-old beat.

Stephen: You are a guest,
so I will say yes.

Essentially what, its doing
is... is the sugars in the beat

are being pulled to the outside,
and its... the flavor is

intensifying, and when we
caramelize it later it creates

awe crust on it.

Stephen: Wait, you mean
were not done cooking this damn

thing yet?

This has not died yet.

Stephen: I didnt have
girlfriends that lasted as long

as this damn dish.

I dont usually use a mallet
but were on TV so it seems like

we should use a malgillette the
mallet was our idea?

The mallet was a discussion.

They said, "Stephen likes

Stephen: Ive broken it

I get all the wax off because we
dont want the wax?

You dont eat the wax.

The wax... the place were
getting the wax from, its bees

that eat a lot of blackberrys,
so it has this sort of... you get

these black Berry notes from the

Stephen: This wax is...

Dont eat the wax but...
Stephen: I wasnt going to.

Its black Berry-flavored wax?


It could be said.

You get subtle notes of black

Stephen: I feel like youre
punk meeg this entire time.

For the actual dish, we have
the Greens from the beats that

weve wilted with a little bit
of cream.

Stephen: Okay.

Same two-week-old beats?

These are fresh beats.

Were going to season these with
a little bit of lemon juice and

a little salt.

Stephen: That liquid

See, you can put whatever you
want in that and it makes it...

It makes it fun.

Stephen: Yeah, there you

Let that sit there...
I dont think youre allowed

to do that without the goggle s.

Stephen: Im doing it

Its my (bleep) Show.

So now we get some really hot

Stephen: Okay, great.

Were Browning.

Stephen: Oh, its au

I can be fancy, too.

You just need the one.

This is the final one.

Stephen: My lemon is

Stephen: Your lemon is

( Laughter )
Stephen: I do like mallets.

You do like malets.

Malets are very dangerous

Stephen: Lets plate.

Youre going to plate.

Im not plating.

Stephen: I come over here.

This is your plate.

This is what youre trying to

Stephen: Thank you very

Thank you for not breaking my

I brought it.

A little spoon full just like

Stephen: Which goes first,

That is first, it goes right

A little bit less but thats

Dont take it off now.

Stephen: Im a hungry man.

Grab your beat.

Shake it a little bit.

Stephen: Tuck it like that?

Tuck it next to it.

So far, sod if good.

Put that back in there.

We mack a orubdelais, like
reduced fat and meat and very

flavorful stuff.

We made with the beats.

Instead of a beef bourdelais,
its beef bourdelais?


I start on the beat usually.

Stephen: Well I do it the
other way.

Get your own damn show.

And a little bit of this action?

A little bit of that on there.

Stephen: Okay.

I mean, not quite like that...
Thats a lot.


Thats fine.

It is your show.

You can put however much salt
you want.

Stephen: Take that off.


I dont know... I dont know if

Stephen: Can I try it?


Stephen: Can I try it?

Go for it.

Stephen: Do you want to
trite other half of it?

Im okay.

Stephen: Youve had it.

Ive eaten this too many times.

I dont really like beats,

( Laughter ) (

applause ).

Stephen: Now how long went
into this beat?

Lets recap this.

How long ago did the process of
cooking this beat start?

About two and a half weeks ago.

Stephen: For...
For that.

Stephen: Okay.

( Laughter )
Its a good beat.

Stephen: Thats the best
damn beat ive ever had.

( Cheers and applause )
