BE HOME WITH YOUR LOVELY WIFE, REET AFOR THE HOLIDAYS?>>YES, WE WILL HAVE OUR
TRADITIONAL TRINSLE WAR WHICH WE ALWAYS HAD.>>Stephen: WHAT’S THE TINSEL
WAR.>>HERE’S THE THING, I GREW UP
WITH A CHRISTMAS DECORATION SCHEME BY WAY OF WOOLWORTH’S,
THE FIVE AND DIME– MORE SHINY OBJECTS ON THE TREE, THE BETTER. MY WIFE GREW UP IN A HOUSEHOLD
WHERE THE KIDS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO DECORATE THE TREE. HER MOM DID TWHILE THEY WERE AT
SCHOOL. THEY WOULD COME HOME AND IT
WOULD BE ALL DONE. AND SHE WOULD SAY, “HONEY, YOU
WON’T DO IT GOOD, SO I HAVE TO DO IT.” SO RITA HAS THIS THING ABOUT
DECORATING THE TREE. AND MY THING HAD ALWAYS BEEN
TINSEL, OLD-SCHOOL TINSEL.>>Stephen: THE INDIVIDUAL
STRANDS.>>THE ICICLE STUFF. BUT REMEMBER WHEN WE WERE KIDS,
BEFORE I NEEDED GLASSES, IT WAS MADE OUT OF LITERALLY A TOXIC
SUBSTANCE.>>Stephen: SURE, SURE
( LAUGHTER ).>>IT SHOULD HAVE HAD, “DO NOT
USE HANDS TO DECORATE YOUR TREE WITH THIS.”>>Stephen: IT WAS DEVELOPED
AT LOS ALAMOS.>>YES. HAD A HALF-LIFE AND IT WAS A
CARCINOGEN, YOU COULD GET DIABETES FROM IT. ( LAUGHTER )
IT GAVE YOU ZITS. IT WAS REALLY BAD STUFF.>>Stephen: AND DELICIOUS.>>AND IT TASTED GOOD.>>Stephen: YEAH.>>TASTED LIKE CHRISTMAS. YOU KNOW? IT REALLY DID. AND I– I– WHEN WE ALL– I
ALWAYS PUT TINSEL ON THE TREE, EVEN THOUGH NOW —
>>Stephen: DO YOU DO STRANDS OR DO YOU JUSTING CHUCK IT?>>WELL, NOW, YOU CAN ONLY CHUCK
IT BECAUSE IT’S NOT THE SAME CARCINOGEN IT HAD BEEN. IT’S NOT THE SAME CONTROLLED
SUBSTANCE. IT’S STRANDS OF MYLAR THAT ARE
SUSCEPTIBLE TO STATIC ELECTRICITY IN THE AIR AND YOU
CAN’T GET IT TO DRAPE OVER THE BRANCHES. IT’S LIKE A SERIES OF RATS’
NESTS THAT COLLECT ON IT. WE ALWAYS SAY– THIS YEAR– WE
ALTERNATE THE YEARS. THERE ARE SOME YEARS THEY– I–
IS THIS AN ODD-NUMBERED YEAR?>>Stephen: IT IS, YEAH.>>I THINK IN EVEN-NUMBERED
YEARS– I CAN’T REMEMBER– BUT I GET TINSEL ON THE TREE.>>Stephen: YES.>>AND IT’S– WE NEGOTIATE IT,
BUT I HAVE A FEELING WHAT HAS HAPPENED IS, IS EVERY YEAR, RITA
CONVINCES ME THAT LAST YEAR WE HAD TINSEL ON THE TREE. ( LAUGHTER )
SO WE– WE DO NOT– I THINK WE’RE NOT GOING TO HAVE TINSEL
ON THE TREE ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).>>Stephen: SHE’S COUNTING ON
THIS SLIPPING.>>AND I AM– I– I START
FIGHTING, BUT THEN I “HONESTLY, HONE, I DON’T REMEMBER, OKAY, NO
TINSEL ON THE TREE.”>>Stephen: THEN YOU HAVE A
HAPPY CHRISTMAS. DO YOU PUT THE LIGHTS ON
YOURSELF.>>I DIDN’T THIS YEAR.>>Stephen: DO YOU PUT THEM
TOP TO THE BOTTOM OR BOTTOM TO THE TOP.>>YOU HAVE TO START FROM THE

TOP.>>THAT’S NUTS. DO YOU HAVE MULTICOLORED LIGHTS
OR WHITE LIGHTS.>>Stephen: MULTICOLORED.>>OH, INTEREST EXPWRG.>>Stephen: WHAT! WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?>>I JUST THINK IT CUTS DOWN ON
THE– ON THE– LOOK, I LIKE THEM TO FLASH. DO YOU HAVE THE FLASHING LIGHTS
AT LEAST?>>Stephen: THAT’S INSANE! FLASHING LIGHTS? WE’RE NOT LANDING A PLANE. ( LAUGHTER )
WE’RE TRYING TO GET SANTA TO STOP BY. I GUESS THAT WOULD BE–
>>IF YOU HAVE MULTICOLORED LIGHTS THAT YOU’RE NOT REALLY
SURE WHAT COLOR THE DECORATIONS ARE, BLASE BLUE ONE WILL BE
RIGHT FIXTURE TO A GOLD BULB, AND YOU’LL SAY IT’S A GOLD BULB,
IT’S A BLUE BULB. I DON’T KNOW WHAT COLOR IT IS.>>Stephen: ARE YOU SAYING YOU
COORDINATE YOUR LIGHTS AND YOUR BULBS?>>ABSOLUTELY, SIR.>>Stephen: THEY HAVE MEDICINE
FOR THAT NOW! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
LOOK, IF YOU WANT–>>IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THE
BEAUTY OF A SYMMETRICALLY DESIGNED AND DECORATED CHRISTMAS
TREERK GET OFF MY SHOW. ( LAUGHTER )

BURNS. THAT WAS DOCUMENTARI DOCUMENTARI
BURNS. WE HAD A GREAT DINNER, BUT THE
TRUE GREAT THING ABOUT IT– IF YOU’VE NEVER BEEN TO WASHINGTON,

WHO STAND RIGHT NEXT TO THAT. ( LAUGHTER )
BECAUSE THEY STAND THERE ALL DAY… YOU KNOW WHAT THEY’RE
DOING? THEY’RE PRESERVING, PROTECTING,
AND DEFENDING THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THEY HAVE DONE A HELL OF A JOB!>>Stephen: WOW.>>BECAUSE —
>>Stephen: DO YOU GET TO TOUCH IT OR ANYTHING?>>IT’S BEHIND GLASS. YOU CAN LEAN OVER IT. AND THEY DON’T EVEN ALLOW
PHOTOGRAPHS OF IT. YOU HAVE TO BUY A $60 REPLICA OF

  1. as much as i love t-hanks, this entire conversation all i cared about was the fact that mac freakin demarco was in the building and wanted him to say something!

  2. I don't know whether he'd invite this comparison, but those glasses make him look like Skissinger (Skinny Kissinger).Kissinger, so hot right now…. SO FUCKING HOT.

  3. I definitely have a christmas tree light technique… that's for sure. ALL the lights. Everywhere. Done. hahaha

  4. I'm so anal about the xmas tree…I decorate it them the kids put their ornaments on it and sometimes I move theirs for symmetry lol

  5. That is why sing you singing on the stage and the people like me admire you so much and wish to shake hand or touch your hand so much , deep down inside u are so afraid to touch my hand am I right because I am the refrigerator that didn't put the ground line to the ground yet …that is why u feel that tinkering…..right?

  6. If I were a boy the song from Beyoncé …it is very tricky and make him feel something ..? Or he doesn't feel anything at all ?

  7. My dad, in the 70s, went through a phase where he liked to drop acid & one year our tree was psychedelic. I still have nightmares.

  8. Tom Hanks is no longer my favorite actor now, He's not as humble as he used to be. This clip shows him as very full of himself

  9. I figure Colbert covers for a pedophile like hanks why?
    Colbert is a bitch ( most likely a pedophile) for the vampire globalist.

  10. You start from the bottom so it plugs into the right place. Also, the trick with modern tinsel is to loosely hold it and gently drag it over branches so that it catches and drapes properly. This method takes forever to do right, though, so I still always end up with some rat's nests. Not that I've done it since getting cats…

  11. except, it was not the people. it was j madison, and his purpose was to make sure the people never spent the taxes of the rich. it was adopted by the legislatures of the states, nothing democratic there. except in one, where the people were asked, by referendum. it failed, as so it should.

  12. people people . set of white lights for her , second set of colored flashers for after hours , or to signal guests . add two power strips .

  13. I required glasses at 7. I find a lot of my eye sight problem is allergy. I used to have like 6 prescriptions for the time of year & weather. I still have a few.

  14. Ah, yes… I remember good ol' toxic metal tinsel…. it had weight, so it hung better on the tree, looking more like ice…

    My 7th grade history teacher made us memorize and recite the Preamble of the Constitution… I can STILL recite it, 50 years later… and with each year, it gains more meaning…

  15. why did they have to ruin the spirit with that racist reading saying the rights are guaranteed for "ourselves and our posterity". sounds like trump-talk to me. just because illegals are not your posterity they can't get guaranteed rights? evil.

  16. If you think tinsel, colored lights and flashing is gaudy, this year I bought a used, prelit fake tree. No instructions. Quite lovely but when I hit the “on” button it didn’t just light up, it began to ROTATE. WTH?! My house looked like a Barney’s window 😆

  17. Who could possibly not be in awe of Tom Hanks? From the 70s show he starred in, where he had to dress like a woman so he could live in the apartment that didn't rent to men. From thst cheesy sitcom, to the outstanding performances he has given for us, including: Forrest Gump, Philadelphia (Tom played the part of a gay man that is infected with AIDS, the voice of Woody in all the "Toy Story" movies, and "Saving Private Ryan". Tom Hanks is a national treasure❤

  18. Tom Hanks wife sounds like mine – except that mine was so anal about it she sucked all the fun out of Christmas. I think her mother had delusions of being Martha Stewart, and my wife was always trying to live up to that. In my family, the only thing the adults did decorating the tree was to string the lights and get them working – whatever lights we had. And then we kids went to town with the ornaments, toxic tinsel, and whatever else seemed to work. It was big fun. I am sure our tree often looked like a Vegas whore, but then, they can be fun too! And my mom was a consummate baker and made awesome Christmas cookies – the best of which we never had. She would let us "help" while she crafted little baked artworks to send to relatives, and we mostly got whatever we made from her dough. She would paint sugar cookies with icings of many colors – Santas with their red suits with white trim and chocolate boots, while I might make a green and yellow Santa with icing meant for Christmas tree cookies and stars. She would make perfect, uniform chocolate chip cookies and my brothers and I would compete to try to make the biggest or smallest cookie and often throw in raisins, or M&Ms or try to top them with Hershey kisses. Needless to say, our efforts tended to be less than optimal – but we had fun.

  19. yeah, I was thinking Magna Carta then they said it almost in uni-sense the constitution, and although Tom Hanks Dad would never be teased for his eyebrows, which is a good thing!

  20. Christmas? When Christ was born –> And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. Luke 2:8 KJB
    Shepherds were NOT in the field on Dec 25th because it gets quite cold in Israel. Remember, Peter warmed his hands by the fire in APRIL.
    On Dec 25th the sheep had been shorn and were in pens for mutual warmth. Catholics invented the lie of 'christmas' Roman Catholicism is Satan's masterpiece of deception.

  21. "If you don't understand the beauty of a symmetrically designed Christmas tree, get off my show."

    Tom Hanks.

  22. What would our conversation today be if those who've taken an oath to defend our Constitution revered it as much as these two lovely men?
