CC | tv-pg
Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, has a rousing message for those who are afraid for America in these troubled times. "Our country remains the last best hope of mankind," Stephen says. "And it is already great. This is a great country. ... There will be good Presidents and there will be bad Presidents. There will be good Congresses and bad Congresses. There will be good judiciary and bad judiciary. But if we can all agree on [the core principle of equality], then America will always be the last best hope of mankind."

Here, in an uplifting moment, Stephen opens up to Oprah about why he is always hopeful for the United States.
