  • >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY, WELCOME BACK TO A SPECIAL LIVE

  • "LATE SHOW"."

  • LET'S SAY HELLO TO OUR FRIEND, MR. JON BATISTE.

  • HEY, JON, HOW ARE YOU?

  • >> Jon: I'M VERY, VERY GOOD TODAY.

  • >> Stephen: SO AM I.

  • SO AM I.

  • DID YOU GET-- DID YOU GET A CHANCE TO WATCH THE CEREMONIES

  • TODAY?

  • >> Jon: YES, I DID.

  • I JUST FELT IT EVEN BEFORE I TURNED IT ON, THE COUNTENANCE OF

  • THE NATION HAS BEEN LIFTED.

  • AND I WAS SO HAPPY TO SEE PEOPLE COMING TOGETHER AND UNITING.

  • AND WE'RE GOING FORWARD.

  • >> Stephen: RIGHT.

  • IT WAS A REAFFIRMATION OF THE BEAUT AND THE MAJESTY OF

  • DEMOCRACY, AND THE PEOPLE'S WILL.

  • ESPECIALLY IN THAT SPACE THAT HAD BEEN SO HEARTBREAKINGLY

  • VIOLATED TWO WEEKS AGO.

  • IT WAS JUST A LOVELY, CLEANSING MOMENT.

  • >> Jon: YES, YES.

  • IT FELT LIKE THE WAY THAT THINGS WERE SUPPOSED TO BE FOR FOUR

  • YEARS, AND WE FORGOT.

  • AND THEN WE WERE REMINDED TODAY.

  • WE TURNED ON THE TV, AND WE SEE IT IN ACTION.

  • OKAY, NOW WE'RE BACK IN ORDER.

  • >> Stephen: EVERYONE WAS BLOWN AWAY BY THE YOUNG POET LAUREATE,

  • AMANDA GORMAN.

  • I UNDERSTAND YOU KNOW HER.

  • YOU DID A PROJECT WITH HER.

  • WHAT WAS THAT?

  • >> Jon: WE DID A DUET AND TRIBUTE TO THE BUILDERS OF THE

  • EMPIRE STATE BUILDING, WHO A LOT OF THEM ARE UNKNOWN, AND EVEN

  • DIED IN BUILDING THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING.

  • AND SHE WAS AMAZING WHEN WE DID THIS.

  • IT WAS SO GREAT TO WORK WITH HER, AND TO SEE HER TODAY, I WAS

  • SO PROUD.

  • >> Stephen: SHE KILLED IT.

  • YES, ABSOLUTELY.

  • I'D LOVE TO HAVE HER ON AND DO SOMETHING WITH YOU.

  • THAT WOULD BE BEAUTIFUL IF THE TWO OF YOU COULD DO SOMETHING

  • TOGETHER.

  • >> Jon: OH, I'D LOVE THAT.

  • I'LL TELL HER.

  • SHE'S JUST AMAZING AND I LOVED THAT EVERYBODY GOT TO BE SEEING

  • HISTORY BEING MADE IN SO MANY WAYS TODAY.

  • >> Stephen: JON, DO YOU HAVE A LITTLE OCCASIONAL MUSH FOR THE

  • MOMENT?

  • >> Jon: OH, YEAH, I LIKE THE WAY GARTH DID HIS THING.

  • ( "AMAZING GRACE ) >> Stephen: THANK YOU, JON.

  • JON BATISTE, EVERYBODY.

  • WELL, FOLKS, PRESIDENT BIDEN IS NOW OFFICIALLY IN CHARGE, AND

  • THIS AFTERNOON, HE HIT THE GROUND PEN FIRST, SIGNING AN

  • UNPRECEDENTED 17 EXECUTIVE ACTIONS TO DISMANTLE HIS

  • PREDECESSOR'S LEGACY.

  • LOOK THAT PHOTO!

  • AT LAST, THE RESOLUTE DESK IS BEING USED FOR SOMETHING OTHER

  • THAN A TV TRAY TO HAWK PINTO BEANS.

  • PRESIDENT BIDEN SIGNED ORDERS TO HALT CONSTRUCTION ON THE BORDER

  • WALL, END THE MUSLIM TRAVEL BAN, AND REVOKE APPROVAL OF THE

  • KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE.■ç HE'S REVERSING EVERYTHING FROM

  • THE LAST FOUR YEARS, EVEN TAKING EVEN GETTING RID OF THE WARNING

  • LABEL ON BLEACH THAT SAYS YUM-YUM.

  • HE IS ALSO SENDING AWE POWERFUL MESSAGE TO THE INTERNATIONAL

  • COMMUNITY.

  • BABY, WE GOING THROUGH SOME STUFF.

  • PLEASE TAKE US BACK.

  • THE UNITED STATES UPON REJOIN THE PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD AND■ç T

  • WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION.

  • THE THREE THINGS HIS PREDECESSOR HATED MOST: THE WORLD, HEALTH,

  • AND ORGANIZATION.

  • HE'S NOT STOPPING AT DAY ONE.

  • WITH THIS SPIRIT WEEK AT THE WHITE HOUSE, WE'VE GOT THEMES,

  • BABY.

  • THURSDAY'S THE PANDEMIC.

  • FRIDAY'S THE ECONOMY.

  • AND NEXT WEEK, HE'S DOING CLIMATE ON WEDNESDAY, HEALTH

  • CARE ON THURSDAY, AND SATURDAY NIGHT, THE PROM THEME IS GOING

  • TO BE "COMPETENCE UNDER THE SEA."

  • ( LAUGHTER ) ONE ORDER THAT COULD HAVE A

  • MAJOR IMPACT IS THE ONE BIDEN CALLS "THE 100 DAYS MASKING

  • CHALLENGE," IN WHICH THE PRESIDENT IS ASKING AMERICANS TO

  • WEAR MASKS FOR 100 DAYS, WHICH I SUPPORT, BUT IT'S A LITTLE ODD

  • TO HAVE AN EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT ASKS US TO DO SOMETHING.

  • LINCOLN DIDN'T SIGN THE EMANCIPATION SUGGESTION.

  • WHILE HE WAS AT THE RESOLUTE DESK, BIDEN FOUND A SURPRISE

  • FROM HIS PREDECESSOR.

  • >> THE PRESIDENT WROTE A VERY GENEROUS LETTER.

  • BECAUSE IT WAS PRIVATE, I WILL NOT TALK ABOUT IT UNTIL I TALK

  • TO HIM.

  • BUT, YOU KNOW, IT WAS GENEROUS.

  • >> Stephen: WE HERE AT THE "LATE SHOW" HAVE ACQUIRED A COPY

  • OF THE LETTER.

  • "DEAR JOE, I'LL GIVE YOU $10 MILLION FOR A PARDON.

  • ALSO, CAN I BORROW $10 MILLION?" BIDEN CHANGED SOME OF THE DECOR,

  • SWAPPING THE PREVIOUS PRESIDENT'S PORTRAIT OF ANDREW

  • JACKSON TO ONE OF BENJAMIN FRANKLIN.

  • THAT'S NICE, REPLACING A NOTORIOUSLY RACIST PRESIDENT

  • WITH A CELEBRATING FOUNDING FATHER.

  • PLUS TRADING A JACKSON FOR A BENJAMIN, YOU CLEAR ABOUT 80

  • BUCKS.

  • PRESIDENT BIDEN WASN'T THE ONLY ONE TO HAVE A BUSY FIRST DAY.

  • AS VICE PRESIDENT, KAMALA HARRIS IS PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE, AND

  • TODAY SHE PRESIDED OVER THE CHAMBER, SWEARING IN NEW

  • SENATORS WHEN THIS HAPPENS.

  • >> THE CHAIR LAYS BEFORE THE SENATE TWO CERTIFICATES, FOR THE

  • STATE OF GEORGIA, AND THE CERTIFICATE OF APPOINTMENT TO

  • FILL THE VACANCY CREATED BY THE RESIGNATION OF FORMER SENATOR

  • KAMALA D. HARRIS OF CALIFORNIA.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE )

  • YEAH, THAT WAS VERY WEIRD.

  • >> Stephen: IT FEELS LIKE REALITY JUST SUNK IN WHEN SHE

  • WAS READING THAT.

  • "OH, THERE'S A VACANCY?

  • I WONDER WHO LEFT?

  • KAMALA HARRIS OF CALIFORNIA?

  • I'M THAT PERSON.

  • WELL, SOMEBODY SHOULD REALLY TELL THE VICE PRESIDENT.

  • WHAT!

  • LAUGH" BIDEN'S FIRST DAY CULMIN ANTI-ED IN A STAR-STUDDED

  • TELEVISION EVENT, CELEBRATING AMERICA, FEATURING JON BON VOFY,

  • DEMI LOVATO AND FOOOFIGHTERS.

  • >> THERE IS ONLY ONE THUNG I CAN SAY ABOUT THE WAR IN VIETNAM.

  • >> Stephen: SORRY, SORRY.

  • THAT'S THE MEMORIAL.

  • WRONG HANKS.

  • JIM?

  • THERE'S HANKS IN HIS MOST CHALLENGING ROLE YET AS A HIT

  • MAN ABOUT TO STRANGLE THE STATUE OF LINCOLN.

  • THE NIGHT HAD EVERYTHING-- SPEECHES FROM THE NEW PRESIDENT,

  • THE NEW VICE PRESIDENT, THE OLD PRESIDENTS.

  • AND TO CLOSE OUT THE EVENING IN A STUNNING DISPLAY OF PATRIOTISM

  • AND LITERALISM, THEY SHOT FIREWORKS AS KATY PERRY SANG

  • "FIRE WORK."

  • I'M GLAD THEY DIDN'T GO WITH THE ORIGINAL PLAN-- HAVING HER SING

  • "ROAR" AS THEY RELEASED A PACK OF LIONS.

  • DURING THE FIREWORKS DISPLAY, SO LARGE I BELIEVE IT VIOLATED THE

  • PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD, I FELT HOPEFUL THINGS WILL GET BETTER.

  • YES, THERE IS STILL A PANDEMIC AND RACISM.

  • AND I BET DOLLARS TO DONUTS ARE THERE ARE ACTUALLY SEDITIONISTS

  • IN CONGRESS, BUT TONIGHT, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES,

  • STOOD ON THE BALCONY OF THE WHITE HOUSE AND WORE A MASK.

  • BABY STEPS.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH THE COHOSTS OF "POD SAVE AMERICA."
