(LAUGHTER)THEN, WHO WILL BE AMERICA'S NEW

ATTORNEY GENERAL?

AND DID I JUST PITCH A REALITYSHOW TO C-SPAN?

(LAUGHTER)AND MY GUEST TONIGHT IS

LEGENDARY FASHION DESIGNER DIANEVON FURSTENBERG, WHOSE NEW BOOK

IS "THE WOMAN I WANTED TO BE."

FOR ME, IT WAS ALWAYS NANCYREAGAN.

SINGLE INSIDE BOXES OF HONEY NUTCHEERIOS.

I CAN'T BELIEVE HONEY NUTCHEERIOS SOLD OUT LIKE THAT.

(LAUGHTER)THIS IS "THE COLBERT REPORT.

PLEASE HAVE A SEAT.

FOLKS, I WANT TO WELCOME YOUALL.

(CHEERING)FOLKS, I WANT TO WELCOME YOU ALL

TO "SAYS ME STREET" BROUGHT TOYOU TONIGHT BY THE LETTER C AND

THE NUMBER 19(LAUGHTER)

>> Stephen: NATION, AS MUCH ASTHIS

ADMINISTRATION WOULD LIKE US TOFORGET IT, WE ARE JUST IN THE

OPENING CHAPTERS OF OURONGOING WAR ON TERROR, AND

OVER THE WEEKEND, THERE MAY HAVEBEEN A MAJOR PLOT TWIST.

>> CONFLICTING REPORTS ON THEFATE OF THE LEADER OF I.S.I.S.,

ABU BAKR AL-BAGHDADI. U.S.WARPLANES ATTACKING

A CONVOY NEAR MOSUL IN IRAQ THISWEEKEND.

IT'S UNKNOWN IF THEIRTOP GUY WAS AMONG THEM.

>> al-BAGHDADI MAY HAVE BEENKILLED OR WOUNDED IN A U.S. AIR

STRIKE.

>> THE LEADER OF I.S.I.S., ABUBAKR AL-BAGHDADI, MAY BE DEAD

TONIGHT.

>> Stephen: YEAH, WE MAYBE GOTYOU, SUCKER!

(LAUGHTER)REST IN POSSIBLY!

(LAUGHTER)FOLKS, I AM THEORETICALLY PUMPED

THAT THIS BRUTAL MURDERER ISHYPOTHETICALLY OUT OF THE

PICTURE.

(LAUGHTER)I SAY, LET'S BRING THE CHAMPAGNE

TO ROOM TEMPERATURE SO IT'SREADY TO CHILL IF THAT PROVES

NECESSARY!

(LAUGHTER)AND WHILE I, OF COURSE, WOULD

LIKE TO KNOW FORCERTAIN THAT THE MONSTER WHO

PROMISED TO TURN NEW YORK INTOAN ASH-HEAP IS DECEASED, AT

LEAST THIS UNCERTAINTY GIVES OURTABLOIDS TIME TO STOCK UP ON

THEIR ZINGER HEADLINES,LIKE WHEN SADDAM WAS SENTENCED

TO HANG, THE "NEW YORK POST"WENT WITH "GOOD NOOSE."

(LAUGHTER)OR WHEN WE KILLED BIN LADEN AND

FOUND PORN IN HIS COMPOUND, THEYHIT US WITH THIS ACTUAL

HEADLINE.

"OSAMA BIN WANKIN."

(LAUGHTER)AND WHO CAN FORGET THAT WHEN WE

GOT AL QUAIDA IN IRAQ LEADER ABUMUSAB al-ZARQAWI, THE "POST"

COVER SCREAMED "GOTCHA" ANDFEATURED A DEATH PHOTO WITH A

SPEECH BUBBLE SAYING "WARM UPTHE VIRGINS."

AND YOU KNOW THOSE WERE HISACTUAL LAST WORDS, BECAUSE

IF THEY WEREN'T, LEGALLY, THE"POST" WOULD HAVE HAD TO

USE A THOUGHT BUBBLE.

(LAUGHTER)ONCE WE KNOW al-BAGHDADI IS

DEAD FOR SURE, THERE'S GONNA BEA GOLD RUSH FOR THE PERFECT

HEADLINE.

WHICH IS WHY I'M STAKING MYCLAIM TONIGHT AND HEREBY

COPYRIGHT THE FOLLOWINGPHRASES:.

Al-BAGH-DEAD-Y.

(LAUGHTER)BODY-BAGHDADI.

(LAUGHTER)MUCH ABU ABOUT NOTHING.

(LAUGHTER)ABU GOES THE DIE-NAMITE.

(LAUGHTER)LET'S CALIPH THE WHOLE THING

OFF.

(LAUGHTER)AND BAKR "NOT" TO THE FUTURE.

(LAUGHTER)THOSE ARE MINE, "NEW YORK POST".

IF YOU USE ANY OF THOSEHEADLINES, I WILL SEE YOU IN

COURT.

OR TO PARAPHRASE al-ZARQAWI,"WARM UP THE LAWYERS."

(LAUGHTER)NATION, I KNOW I'VE OFTEN CALLED

PRESIDENT OBAMA A NATIONALEMBARRASSMENT, BUT I CAN'T DO

THAT TONIGHT BECAUSE, TONIGHT,HE'S AN INTERNATIONAL

EMBARRASSMENT.

(LAUGHTER)THIS TIME, HE'S IN CHINA, WHERE

HE'S ATTENDING AN ECONOMICSUMMIT AND, ONCE AGAIN, HE HAS

EMBARRASSED AMERICA.

FIRST OFF, HE WORE TRADITIONALCHINESE GARB BUT FORGOT THE

STARFLEET COMMUNICATOR.(LAUGHTER)

EVEN WORSE -- THAT'S NOT CANON-- EVEN WORSE WHEN HE SHOULD BE

OVER THERE CHEWING CHINA OUT, HEWAS CHEWING SOMETHING ELSE.

>> A FAUX PAS BY PRESIDENTOBAMA.

SOME ARE ACCUSING HIM OF BEINGRUDE FOR EMERGING FROM

HIS CAR YESTERDAY CHEWING GUM.

>> IT APPEARED HE WAS CHEWINGGUM AS HE WALKED WITH THE

CHINESE COUNTERPART.

>> THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS INCHINESE MEDIA THAT THE CHINESE

HERE IN BEIJING WERE OFFENDED BYTHE PRESIDENT'S GUM CHEWING.

MR. OBAMA WAS SEEN CHEWING HISNICORETTE GUM.

>> Stephen: THAT IS OUTRAGEOUS!

WHY ARE YOU CHEWING NICORETTE,MR. PRESIDENT?

YOU'RE IN BEIJING -- THE ONEPLACE ON EARTH WHERE INHALING

BURNT TAR IS THE HEALTHY CHOICE.

(LAUGHTER)AND I'M JUST AS OFFENDED AS THE

CHINESE PEOPLE. AS WE ALLLEARNED

IN GRADE SCHOOL, IF YOU WANT TOCHEW GUM, YOU BRING

ENOUGH FOR EVERYBODY -- THAT'S1.3 BILLION STICKS.

(LAUGHTER)I ASSUME THEY LIKE BIG RED.

(LAUGHTER)SO IT'S NO WONDER THAT OBAMA WAS

CHARACTERIZED BY CHINESEINTERNET USERS AS AN IMPOLITE

"IDLER" OR CARELESS "RAPPER."

(LAUGHTER)WE ALL KNOW HOW MUCH THE HIP-HOP

RAPSMEN LOVE REPRESENTIN' THEG-U-M.

AS SNOOP ONCE RHYME-FLOWED --"ROLLIN' DOWN THE STREET,

CHEWING SPEARMINT, THINKIN' BOUTJUICY FRUIT, WITH MY MIND ON MY

BUBBLES AND MY BUBBLES ON MYMIND."

(LAUGHTER)(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

REST IN PEACE, TWO-PACK.

(LAUGHTER)YOU, TOO, WRIGLEY SMALLS.

(LAUGHTER)(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

BUT NOT EVERYONE AT THE SUMMITWAS ACTING LIKE A GUM-SMACKING

TEEN.

REAL PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTINWAS TRYING TO GET HIM SOME

DIM SUM.

>> VLADIMIR PUTIN GIVING HISCOAT TO CHINA'S FIRST LADY.

THE REASON?

SHE WAS COLD.

>> VLADIMIR PUTIN CREATED A STIRBY SLIPPING A SHAWL OVER THE

FIRST LADY OF CHINA AND THECHINA MEDIA, WHICH IS

STATE-BACKED, IMMEDIATELYREMOVED THE IMAGE.

>> Stephen: WHAT A GENTLEMAN.

YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO ASK VLAD,AND HE WILL GIVE YOU THE SHIRT

OFF HIS BACK.

(LAUGHTER)BUT THE THING THAT HAS ME EVEN

MORE OUTRAGED THAN HOW MUCHDISRESPECT OBAMA SHOWED CHINA

WAS HOW MUCH RESPECT HE SHOWEDCHINA.

>> DID THE LEADER OF THE FREEWORLD BOW TO THE CHINESE

PRESIDENT?

SOME SAY YES.

YOU CAN SEE HE TILTS HIS HEADGREETING PRESIDENT XI.

>> YOU CAN SEE THAT HE TILTS HISHEAD GREETING THE PRESIDENT

YESTERDAY.

>> Stephen: YES, SOME SAY HEBOWED!

FIRST FOX, NOW ME -- TWO ISSOME.

(LAUGHTER)AND JUST LOOK AT THAT HEAD TILT.

THERE IT GOES!

OH, YES!

YES, IT'S BARELY NOTICEABLE, BUTMY DIGITAL TEAM WAS ABLE TO

PROJECT WHERE HE WANTED TO GOWITH THAT.

OH...

THAT IS SHAMEFUL. I CAN'TBELIEVE

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS ALLOWING METO DO THIS TO HIM.

AND NOW HIS PANTS ARE FALLINGDOWN!

(LAUGHTER)WHERE'S THE DIGNITY?

SOMEBODY, COVER THAT MAN UP!

(LAUGHTER)THANK YOU! AND I'M NOT THE ONLY

ONE OUT THERE ENRAGED BY BARACKO-BOW-MA.

(LAUGHTER)TRADEMARK, "NEW YORK POST."

(LAUGHTER)FOX BUSINESS ANALYST AND

UNSHAVED SPEEDBAG BO DIETL GOTHIS DIETL ALL OVER THIS STORY.

HE'S OVER THERE.

"HELLO."

I'M SURE HE BOWED 16 TIMES TOTHESE GUYS.

STOP IT!

PRESIDENT, WHAT YOU SHOULD BEBOWING TO IS YOUR VETERANS!

THAT'S WHO YOU SHOULD BE BOWINGTO INSTEAD OF THE HEAD OF

SAUDI ARABIA.

UGA, UGA, UGA!

>> Stephen: YEAH!

OBAMA'S CHOWIN' DOWN ONYIM YUM YOO YOO WHILE THE

CHINESE ARE BREACHING OURCOMPUTER BLEEP-BLOOP BOXES!

SO STOP GIVING BING BANG BOWWOWS TO THE KING KONG CHING

CHONGS!

THE TROOPS ARE THE ONES WHODESERVE OUR OOGA-OOGAS!

BO DIETL AND I BOTH KNOW TODAYIS VETERANS DAY -- EVEN THOUGH

ONLY ONE OF US IS SURE WHAT YEARIT IS.

(LAUGHTER)>> WE'RE IN 20 -- AND WHAT IS

THIS?

15, ALMOST 14.

WHAT WE GOT TO ALL REMEMBER, THEONLY REASON WHY WE'RE ABLE TO

SIT HERE AND TALK AND NOT WEARABBA-DABBA-DOO HATS OR WHATEVER

IS BECAUSE OF THESE VETERANS.

>> Stephen: HE'S RIGHT.

IF IT WEREN'T FOR OUR VETERANS,WE'D ALL BE WEARING

ABBA-DABBA-DOO HATS, PUSHING--

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)PUSHING AROUND

ABBA-DABBA-DOO CARS, AND ARGUINGWITH OUR ABBA-DABBA-DISHWASHERS.

(LAUGHTER)THAT'S TIME WE COULD BE SPENDING

WITH OUR BAM-BAMS.

(LAUGHTER)I'M WITH BO DIETL.

IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT IN THEYEAR -- I DUNNO, I'M GOING TO

GUESS 20-TIPPITY-2, WE DON'TRESPECT OUR TROOPS.

THEY FOUGHT FOR US, ON THEBEACHES OF OOH LA LAH,

ZUT-DE-PUT-DE-TU-TI, IN THEJUNGLES OF VIET-PLING-PLANG, AND

IN THE DESERTS OFABOO-GABOO-STAN.

THEY'RE THE HEROS.

WHAT IF WE DONE WITH OUR LIVES?

SPENT THEM SCREAMING ON TV.

INCOHERENTLY?

I JUST HOPE SOME DAY SOON I CANLEAVE ALL THIS BEHIND.

MAYBE RETIRE TO THE COAST OF RIOBA-DA-BINGO.

THEN AGAIN, I'VE ALWAYS WANTEDTO SEE THE CLIFFS OF

MALA-KAKI-KOOKY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK. WHOO!THANK YOU SO MUCH. NATION, IF

YOU'VE WATCHED THIS SHOW NIGHTAFTER NIGHT FOR NINE YEARS, AND

I HOPE YOU HAVE

I BELIEVE IN GIVING YOU THEWHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT

THE TRUTH, AS LONG AS YOU DON'TASK ABOUT THE SHED IN MY YARD.

THERE'S NOTHING IN THERE.

THIS IS TIP OF THE HAT, WAG OFTHE FINGER.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)FIRST UP, WITH REPUBLICANS SET

TO TAKE OVER CONGRESS INJANUARY, I HAVE BEEN APPALLED TO

SEE BARACK OBAMA BRAZENLYSTILL BEING PRESIDENT.

CASE IN EXECUTIVE OVERREACH,THIS WEEKEND, HE NAMED HIS

CHOICE TO SUCCEED ATTORNEYGENERAL ERIC HOLDER.

>> PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMAANNOUNCES HE WANTS U.S. ATTORNEY

LORETTA LYNCH TO TAKE OVER THEJUSTICE DEPARTMENT.

55-YEAR-OLD LYNCH WOULD BE THEFIRST BLACK WOMAN TO HOLD THE

POST OF ATTORNEY GENERAL.

>> SHE HAS SPENT YEARS IN THETRENCHES AS A PROSECUTOR

AGGRESSIVELY FIGHTING TERRORISM,FINANCIAL FRAUD, CYBERCRIME, ALL

THE WHILE VIGOROUSLY DEFENDINGCIVIL RIGHTS.

>> I WILL WAKE UP EVERY MORNINGWITH THE PROTECTION OF THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE MY FIRSTTHOUGHT.

>> Stephen: HER FIRST WAKINGTHOUGHT IS PROTECTING THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE?

APPARENTLY, SHE'S GOT BETTERTHINGS TO DO WHILE SHE'S ASLEEP.

(LAUGHTER) OH, I'M SORRY.

I GUESS SHE'S TOO BUSY RIDING AUNICORN TO A TEST THAT SHE'S

LATE FOR NAKED.

FOLKS, THAT FACT IS LYNCH SIMPLYISN'T QUALIFIED FOR THE JOB

I READ ALL ABOUT IT OVER THEWEEKEND, WHEN BRIETBART.GOV

JOURNALIST AND WILFORD BRIMLEYTRIBUTE HEAD, WARNER TODD

HUSTON, BLEW THE LID OFF THESCANDAL THAT LYNCH WAS "A PART

OF BILL CLINTON'S WHITEWATERPROBE DEFENSE TEAM IN 1992".

KIDS, IF YOU'RE TOO YOUNG TOREMEMBER, WHITEWATER WAS THE

BENGHAZI OF ARKANSAS REALESTATE.

(LAUGHTER)THE BOMBSHELL DESTROYS LORETTA

LYNCH'S CREDIBILITY TO BEATTORNEY GENERAL, IF IT WERE

TRUE.

BUT IT TURNS OUT, TEDDYROOSEVELT HERE HAD THE WRONG

LORETTA LYNCH.

THIS IS THE ATTORNEY GENERALNOMINEE.

THIS IS THE ONE WHO DEFENDEDCLINTON DURING WHITEWATER.

AND THERE'S JUST NO WAY TO TELLTHESE TWO WOMEN APART.

(LAUGHTER)BUT AS SOON AS WALRUS-MAN

NOTICED THE MISTAKE, BRIETBARTISSUED A CORRECTION BY LEAVING

UP THE SAME HEADLINE AND ADDINGTHE WORD "CORRECTED."

FROM THERE, IT'S THE EXACT SAMEARTICLE ABOUT HOW OBAMA'S

LORETTA LYNCH DEFENDED THECLINTONS UNTIL YOU GET TO THE

VERY BOTTOM OF THE ARTICLE,WHERE IT READS, "CORRECTION: THE

LORETTA LYNCH IDENTIFIED EARLIERAS THE WHITEWATER ATTORNEY

WAS, IN FACT, A DIFFERENTATTORNEY."

(LAUGHTER)SO I'M GIVING A TIP OF THE HAT

TO BREITBART FOR BREAKING THISNEWS, FINDING

OUT IT'S BROKEN, BUT STICKINGWITH THE STORY ANYWAY.

(LAUGHTER)BECAUSE NO MATTER WHO SHE

ACTUALLY IS, I STILL STANDAGAINST THE NOMINATION OF

LORETTA LYNCH.

I JUST DON'T THINK A COALMINER'S DAUGHTER HAS ANY PLACE

AS ATTORNEY GENERAL.

(LAUGHTER)PLUS, WHY ISN'T ANYONE TALKING

ABOUT THE TIME SHE STOLECHRISTMAS?

IT'S SCANDALOUS!

(LAUGHTER)SO I SALUTE BREITBART FOR NOT

TAKING DOWN A HEADLINE THAT YOUKNOW IS FALSE.

YOU ARE CRAVEN POLITICAL HATCHETMEN.

OH, THEY EVENTUALLY TOOK ITDOWN?

MY APOLOGIES.

THEY ARE CRAVEN POLITICALHATCHET MEN.

CORRECTED.

(LAUGHTER)WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,EVERYBODY.

MY GUEST TONIGHT HAS A NEWREALITY SHOW CALLED

"HOUSE OF D.V.F."

TO SAVOR THE INTERVIEW, YOU WILLWANT TO RECORD IT ON YOUR

"BOX OF D.V.R."

PLEASE WELCOME DIANE VONFURSTENBERG!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)MADAME VON FURSTENBERG,

YOU HAVE BEEN A PRINCESS, YOUHAVE BEEN A FASHION DESIGNER,

WHICH ARE THE TWO MOST POPULARBARBIES.

IS THERE ANY KIND OF WOMAN YOUWANTED TO BE BUT NEVER WERE?

>> NO, BECAUSE I THINK THE WOMANYOU WANT TO BE IS MANY DIFFERENT

WOMEN AT DIFFERENT TIMES, AND -->> Stephen: SOUNDS VAGUELY

SCHIZOPHRENIC.

>> NO, NO, IT'S JUST A MATTER OFLIVING YOUR FANTASY, DOING IT

NICE, SERIOUSLY, BUT DREAMINGABOUT WHO YOU WANT TO BE AND

BECOMING WHO YOU WANT TO BE.

I WAS LUCKY.

I CAME TO AMERICA AND LIVED THISBIG AMERICAN DREAM, BECOMING THE

WOMAN I WANTED TO BE.

>> Stephen: WHEN DID YOUBECOME HER?

>> Stephen: EARLY?

I WAS MAYBE 27, 28.

BUT THE GOOD THING IS THAT IBECAME THAT WOMAN WHILE I WAS --

I HAD COME UP WITH SOMETHINGTHAT WOULD MAKE OTHER WOMEN BE

THE WOMAN YOU WANT TO BE.

SO, YOU SEE, I BECAME CONFIDENTWHILE I WAS MAKING OTHER WOMEN

CONFIDENT.

>> Stephen: WERE YOU MAKINGOTHER WOMEN INTO THE WOMAN YOU

WANTED TO BE OR THEY WANTED TOBE?

>> NO!

NO, NO, NO.

ALL I DO IS I GIVE WOMEN THELITTLE TRICKS, THE LITTLE THINGS

THAT ARE GOING TO MAKE THEM LOOKSEXY AND FEEL EMPOWERED.

DON'T WE DESERVE TO FEEL SEXYAND EMPOWERED AS WELL?

YOU'RE A FEMINIST ICON --(APPLAUSE)

AREN'T YOU BEING SEXIST AGAINSTMEN?

WHAT MAKES A MAN SEXY?

>> VIAGRA?

(LAUGHTER)(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

ANYWAY, THAT'S THE WORST THINGTHAT HAPPENED TO WOMEN IN THE

LAST TEN YEARS, YOU KNOW.

>> Stephen: VIAGRA?

WHY?

BECAUSE THERE'S NO POINT IN AMAN'S LIFE WHEN HE WILL GIVE IT

A REST?

>> YES, BECAUSE WE LOST OUR KINDOF EDGE.

BUT WE'RE NOT HERE TO TALK ABOUTTHAT.

>> Stephen: NO, WE'RE HERE TOTALK ABOUT DIANE VON

FURSTENBERG.

>> Stephen: WHAT DREW YOU TOFASHION AT AN EARLY AGE?

>> THE THING IS THAT I DID NOTKNOW WHAT I WANTED TO DO BUT I

KNEW THAT I WANTED TO BE -- WHOI WANTED TO BE.

I WANTED TO BE INDEPENDENT.

>> Stephen: YOU CAME FROMWEALTH, RIGHT?

AND YOU MARRIED ENORMOUS WEALTH.(LAUGHTER)

INDEPENDENCE WAS THE EASIERPART, WASN'T IT?

>> WELL BUT THAT'S WHY I DIDN'TWANT IT

YOU SEE, I BECAME INDEPENDENTON MY OWN WITH ONE LITTLE DRESS,
