  1. Am I the only one here who was struck by the notion of Shrek talking about what the Constitution means to him?
    "I'm an ogre in a swamp, and according to the Constitution, I've got a right be an ogre, and if I want to be left alone in my swamp, that, too, is my right. It says so in the Constitution."

  2. So she had to win a lot of money to get educated? Meanwhile, in the civilised world, we educated children for free.

  3. Did anyone else think the story about her husband giving her alcohol to go perform despite having a panic attack wasn't charming?

  4. Colbert changes ties half way through the show, does he not? or am I going crazy?…if he does, then the question is why?.

  5. “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” Ninth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

  6. Much more interesting and entertaining interview than I thought, only because I had never heard of her but I'm glad I stuck around to listen:)

  7. Courage is the gentleman who responded with a Haka Dance in New Zealand that took great courage! and unlikely he needed liquid courage to do it.

  8. It's nice that she wrote a play about The Constitution. What's even better is that Americans are interested enough to go see it!

  9. Never heard of her, she's quite entertaining!
    Love how Stephen had a bottle of Tequila and a shot glass at the ready!

  10. The only reason why i subbed to this stupid channel is to see if my favorite celebrities would come on this show but i guess not 😒 the only time i liked one of the videos of the steven colbert show is the one time where he interviewed Jim Gaffigan. That is all. 🙄

  11. (Re: the panic attack over the personal material making it hard for her to share her truth with people who needed it, but also the rest…)

    So real.

  12. the usa constitution starts off with a lie: "we, the people,…" and gets worse. it was written by james madison to protect slavery, and wealth in general, from taxation by the poor. brilliantly successful with the first- 4 of the first 5 presidents were slave plantation plutocrats, and even better with the second- the rich rule still.
    about that initial lie: the people never approved the constitution, it was established by the grandees of the state legislatures. only one state even asked the people: rhode island had a referendum, and the constitution failed.

  13. Like how she talks about the Ninth Amendment being an "escape hatch" while Stephen is pouring her shots of escape hatch.

  14. I'm not from the US, but for some research i read the text of the consititution and the bill of rights recently, and as in english the word citizen doesn't say anything about the gender, i don't understand why they need/ed anything additionally to give women the same rights. As long as they are cititzens they have the same rights by the text of the constitution. Same for people with colour. They weren't specifically menioned, and most maybe wouldn't even have posessed citizenship at the time of writing it, but at least in the 20th century i assume they did, which is the reason i don't really get how segregation was legally possible.

  15. Brilliant, i loved that she explained that women were still property at the time the constitution was written women had no rights. Now we have rights and have to fight tooth and nail just to get equal rights and still have to fight for the rights of children and men.

  16. Disappointing from Colbert. They could go on but as soon as she mentioned birth control he cut it short. He is a devout catholic, after all.

  17. What an awesome clip! The 9th Amendment rocks! It’s the spin I always put on the basis of US principles … I interpret it to mean that we have the freedom to exercise our own conscience in making decisions UNLESS what we do inflicts direct physical harm on another living person. Of course, even that gets pushback from crazies who talk about insane things like fetus rights, but I think those folks need to put a lid on it no matter what Brett Kavanaugh says.

  18. imagine the democratic constitution did not account for what it said discrimination to no white property owners, civil rights 0slavery0 and women's rights and to vote and then criticize other countries systems of government

  19. Oh I soooo wish SC had interviewed Heidi for about three times that long! Fabulous woman…I want to hear more about her play AND the constitution.

  20. I was prepared to give this a thumb's down because of the title, but I decided to give it a fair shake. I'm glad I did. 👍

  21. i saw her play at a regional theatre. i'm so happy for her that the play is getting more exposure on Broadway. if you can, go see the play. it's funny, dramatic, and current.

  22. Brings up a really good point — what would our Constitution look like if it had been written by all women.

  23. In other words, the Constitution is designed to limit the ability of the Federal Government's power over "the people" (meaning both the State and its citizens). The 9th Amendment spells that out: "if it's not specified in this document, then it's not the business of the Federal Government". That means any rights stated within are protected by the Federal Government from abridgment by government at any level, and anything not stated is up to the States.

  24. The constitution has lead to the largest income and wealth disparity in our history. So, it is flawed and needs fixing. It is not very smart to keep talking about it as if it is the last word on democracy and financial organization of a country. When corporations become equal to humans, there is something seriously wrong with the fundamental laws that allow that.
    The constitution was written and directed by slave owner who didn't want women and people who don't have land to be able to elect their representatives. Time start over with our fresh scientific understating of our origins and our place in it. Forget about GOD and all that joke of a preamble.

  25. it was great. It would be very funny to see a bottle of a spirit in every interview. 'The late drink show with Stephen Colbert' 😉

  26. That "impression of a man" Stephen liked looked and sounded just like Cenk Uygur's impression of a right-winger.

  27. On top of being insanely talented and intelligent, she is also a wonderfully kind and positive person. MORE COVERAGE OF ROLE MODEL WOMEN!!

  28. OK,即喜法律叢書,而不爱献辫髮咩众,又卞无咩众也无可卞鸽子,,,?,何管理咩花费呢,,,?,自信自尊值價,,,??。
    女仕们,努力花費唄,不花費对自己好,卻留给矛盾众花费而享,,,?,别省了。
    下下世际天空贞旅,可賺更多,,,。

  29. Why did we have the Blue Bloods guy on when she's here? She's articulate, intelligent, stunning, and nervously so adorable! More shots please!! Great interview but not long enough

  30. A Constitutional Democracy can't be sustained if its leaders and citizens don't bother to read the Constitution. At the very least, there should be a requirement that our leaders must read and understand the Constitution. Imagine that.

  31. I totally agree – the 9th Amendment is the most POWERFUL, though somewhat vague, Amendment to our Constitution. It encompasses the unenumerated rights, and is magic….

  32. I giggled do much watching this video. Her passion is contagious, and her nervousness was super cute 😊
    Stephen was a great host as well, well prepared with the tequila 🍾

  33. Dang that makes two in a row of final interview segments I wish had way more time. She was a hoot! I absolutely enjoyed her demeanor and her earnestness and I wish she'd been able to talk more because I think it's a subject we are all guilty of knowing too little about. And even if you've read the entire Constitution I think you can agree that we should all know it better.
