beautiful! hello, jon! please! have a seat my friends. welcome. welcome one at all, in here, out there, around the world, all the ships at sea, welcome to "the late show," i'm your shows stephen colbert, and i am so happy -- ( cheers and applause ) -- as are you. what a lovely evening. so happy you could join us tonight for a momentous day in history of some people having way too much money! ( laughter ) because for the second time in nine days, a billionaire took a joy ride into the ionssphere. i'll tell you all about it tonight in the space news bezos edition! ( cheers and applause )g dafor n
11:38 pm
founder and terminator sent from the future to be your dentist, jeff bezos. this morning, bezos and 3 others were shot into space on this blue origin rocket. jim, c'mon, we can't show that on cbs. thank you. unbelievable. ) i guess it's true what they say, billionaires and their rockets end up looking just like each other. ( laughter ) okay. here's what bezos said before the launch: everybody who has been to space, every astronaut comes back and they say it changed them somehow. >> i don't know how it's going to change me but i know it's going to and i'm excited to find out how. >> stephen: okay, let's see y d!he changed a cowboy hat! a cowboy hat! so he went into space and somehow became extra divorced. ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause )
11:39 pm
because, you know, change in image. now, all day, the news networks covered this breathlessly - there was a wing ceremony, there were challenge coins, it was all billed like some big, official, important thing. it is not. it's fun. i love space travel. good for them. but it's not important. here's how i know it's not important. i hosted the last one of these. ( laughter ) okay. for branson. lot of fun, but talk show hosts don't anchor historic events. except of course when arsenio hall interviewed the berlin wall. plus, th times, t landed, the billionauts sprayed each other with champagne, like it's the end of a yacht race. ng is really important, it doesn't need a big, wet celebration. you'll remember: buzz aldrin didn't douse neil armstrong
11:40 pm
with gatorade! ( cheers and applause ) i'm making some points tonight. >> jon: i see what you're doing. >> stephen: bezos was sure to spread the thanks around. >> i also, want to thank every amazon employee and every amazon customer. because you guys paid for all of this. so-- ( audience reacts ) ha ha! ha ha! ha ha! it's funny because he doesn't pay taxes-- or his employees. ( cheers and applause ) bezos told the crowd he brought some special objects with him on his flight. >> these are amelia earhart's goggles, the ones she flew across the atlantic with solo. >> stephen: interesting choice for a good luck charm. (as bezos) alright, we got amelia earhart's goggles, a chunk of iceberg from
11:41 pm
the titanic, and abraham lincoln's playbill.tto come? okay. ( laughter ) ( applause ) it's been a few weeks since the 4th of july, but today in congress, we got firewo tkentucd man who let the invisible hand of the market cut his hair, rand paul. earlier today, paul got in a tussle with dr anthony fauci. i'm going to show you a clip, and you don't need to understand what rand paul is saying... he clearly doesn't. all you need to know is, he tried to call dr fauci a liar, and the good doctor jackslapped him back to his old kentucky home. >> dr fauci, knowing it is a crime to lie to congress, do you wish to retract your statement of may 11 where you claim that the n.i.h. never funded gain of function research in wuhan? >> senator paul, i have never lied before the congress and i do not retract that statement.
11:42 pm
this paper that you're referring to was judged by qualified staff up and down the chain as not being gain of function. >> so you're saying -- >> let me finish... >> you take an animal virus and you increase its transmissibility to humans, you're saying that's not gain of function? >> that is correct and senator paul, you do not know what you are talking about, quite frankly. ( cheers and applause ) and i want to say that officially. you do not know what you are talking about. >> stephen: okay. it's time to call it. time of death 11:41 p.m.cheersn) physician on call: tony ( laughter ) of course, the only way to stop the virus is to get people vaccinated. but that's quite a challenge,
11:43 pm
because a new poll found that most americans who still aren't vaccinated say nothing - not their own doctor, or even paid time off - is likely to make them get the shot. these people are die-hard pro-dying. ( laughter ) messaging aieild dwrists.ead to help. among the unvaccinated, 70% said the endorsement of a celebrity or public figure they like is not at all likely to get them to take a shot. hey, i'm a celebrity or public figure and, dammit, i'm still gonna try. so tonight i'm announcing a prize: unvaccinated people, if you get the shot, you will win unlimited oxygen, and a chance to have a private dinner with george clooney, look-alike dante, my cameraman.
11:44 pm
( cheers and applause ) he's just as handsome, and he won't talk your ear off about nespresso. ( laughter ) of course all the anti-vax propaganda on fox news is not helping. as one former executive says, the network had contributed substantially and directly to the unnecessary deaths of many americans by fueling hesitation and doubt about the safety of vaccines. no surprise. it's right there in fox news' slogan: we report. you just died. ( laughter ) but fox tries to pass off their anti-vax segments as being about freedom. take, fox friend and contestant on "jeopardy" realizing he spelled his own name wrong, brian kilmeade. on monday, kilmeade defended unvaccinated people who wanted to defy mask mandates: >> if you didn't get a vaccination, that's your choice. but if you did, like i did and
11:45 pm
they did and maybe you did, then you should not wear a mask. and if you did and you want to go cliff diving this weekend, you don't have to check with me. it seems a little dangerous, but i'm not gonna judge you. and if you go ahead and put yourself in danger, if you feel as though this is not something for you, don't do it, but don't affect my life. >> 99% of the people dying from covid are unvaccinated. >> that's their choice. ( laughter ) >> stephen: so the brown-haired guy believes that being unvaccinated and maskless is the same as being a thrillseeker who jumps off cliffs. that analogy does work, if you first strap that cliff-jumper to a group of old people. ( laughter ) what's that? oh, dear god. folks, i have to interrupt to the monologue, because we have a breaking taco alert. ♪ why does this always happen on tuesdays? ( laughter ) ( cheers and applause )
11:46 pm
does that math work out? >> jon: yeah, it's tuesday. >> stephen: toad's tews? according to highly-placed sources on the internet, taco bell's menu has been hit by nationwide shortages of ingredients. wow, i had no idea taco bell had ingredients. ( laughter ) i thought it was just extruded. ( laughter ) the bell apologized for the scarcities on their website, but that fell on deaf ears, as customers took to the internet with complaints like for anyone craving taco bell tonight, i'll save you the drive, they don't have chicken or beef, and none of the tacos had lettuce or tomato on them. i went back through the drive through and asked about it and they said they are pretty much out of anything that comes fresh. ( audience reacts ) ooh, that's too bad. because when you want fresh lettuce, you head straight to your nearest taco bell. ( laughter ) just like when we want sushi, evie and i make a beeline for our local walgreens.
11:47 pm
( laughter ) but if you're craving a taste of the 'bell, don't worry. because they're introducing a whole new menu with their limited supply. jim? ♪ >> get your mouth ready for taco bell's new loco shortage supreme menu. starting with the grande sour cream lupa, our signature soft tortilla stuffed with twelve zest at this dollops of plain dream. you'll say give meless of our brand-new quadruple drawnch taco, a crispy shell inside a crispy shell inside another crispy shell stuffed in a delicious crispy shell and filled with napkins! want to take it up a nacho? we've got a hot, savory burrito layered with whatever was in deb's car! today it's cough drops and a handful of goldfish crackers, because it's deb's weekend with

i'm morgan, and there's more to me than hiv. more love, more adventure, more community. but with my hiv treatment, there's not more medicines in my pill. i talked to my doctor and switched to fewer medicines with dovato. dovato is for some adults who are starting hiv-1 treatment or replacing their current hiv-1 regimen. with just 2 medicines in 1 pill, dovato is as effective as a 3-drug regimen... to help you reach and stay undetectable. research shows people who take hiv treatment as prescribed and get to and stay undetectable can no longer transmit hiv through sex. don't take dovato if you're allergic to its ingredients or if you take dofetilide. taking dovato with dofetilide can cause serious or life-threatening side effects.

hepatitis b can become harder to treat while on dovato. don't stop dovato without talking to your doctor, as your hepatitis b may worsen or become life-threatening. including allergic reactions, lactic acid buildup, and liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms stop dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, or if you are, may be, or plan to be pregnant. dovato may harm your unborn baby. use effective birth control while on dovato. do not breastfeed while taking dovato. most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, trouble sleeping, tiredness, and anxiety. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. ask your doctor about dovato-i did. ♪
