Donald Trump is a reclusive patriot who has the courage and generosity to erect a huge flagpole on his golf course. (5:06)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE).

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY!

NATION, IT'S NO SECRET THAT

THERE IS NOTHING MORE DEAR TO ME

THAN THE AMERICAN FLAG.

THAT'S WHY IF ANYTHING EVER

HAPPENS TO ME, MY FLAG,

FLAGWORTH, IS THE SOLE

BENEFICIARY OF MY LIFE INSURANCE

POLICY.

(LAUGHTER)

SADLY, ALL ACROSS AMERICA OUR

FLAGS ARE COMING UNDER ATTACK.

WELL, THREE YEARS AGO WE

PROFILED A HERO WHO'S FIGHTING

FOR FLAG RIGHTS.

TONIGHT ONCE AGAIN HE IS OUR

DIFFERENCE MAKER.

THIS IS RANCHO PAL LOS VARY

DAYS, A TOWN IN SOUTHERN

CALIFORNIA WITH ONLY WEALTH AND

A SPECTACULAR COASTLINE GOING

FOR IT.

(LAUGHTER)

BUT WHAT IT LACKS THE MOST WAS

AN ENORMOUS FLAGPOLE.

WELL, NOT ANYMORE.

NOW IT'S GOT 70 FEET OF STEEL

HARD POLE.

(LAUGHTER)

THRUSTING STRAIGHT UP INTO THE

AMERICAN SKY.

ARCHING ITSELF TOWARD THE

HEIGHTS OF FREEDOM.

YEARNING FOR THE APEX OF LIBERTY

AND ELEVATED SYMBOL OF ALL THAT

IS RIGHT WITH OUR COUNTRY.

A POLE THAT TAPERS TO A HEROIC

CONSUMMATION DIPPED AND TOPPED

BY A THROBBING BRASS... THERE WE

GO.

WHAT!

WHOO, THAT'S THE KIND OF POLE TO

GIVE OLD GLORY THE PERCH SHE

DESERVES.

WHAT THE SHELL THAT?

I SAID OLD GLORY, NOT OLD DISH

RAG!

YEAH!

THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.

400 SQUARE FEET OF FREEDOM.

ENOUGH TO PARK THREE HUMMERS

WITH ROOM TO SPARE FOR 345 LARGE

ORDERS OF FRIES.

(LAUGHTER)

WHO HAS THE COURAGE AND

GENEROSITY TO ERECT SUCH A HUGE

POLE?

A RECLUSIVE PATRIOT WHO

RELUCTANTLY AGREED TO SPEAK WITH

US ON THE CONDITION HE REMAIN

ANONYMOUS.

(LAUGHTER)

CONCERNED FOR THIS DEPRIVED

COMMUNITY, MR. TRUMP SELFLESSLY

ERECTED THE FLAGPOLE ON A GOLF

COURSE THAT HE, COINCIDENTALLY,

OWNS.

HE LOVES THE FLAG.

>> I'M A GOLFER, I LOVE GOLF AND

I HIT BALLS AND I LOVE TO HIT

BALLS.

(LAUGHTER).

>> Stephen: ALMOST AS MUCH AS

HE LOVES THE FLAG.

>> I BUILT THE NUMBER-ONE RATED

GOLF COURSE IN THE STATE OF

CALIFORNIA.

BETTER THAN ANY OTHER COURSE.

BETTER THAN PEBBLE BEACH.

>> Stephen: MR. TRUMP IS

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE FACE

OF FIERCE OPPOSITION FROM AN

OPPRESSIVE REGIME.

>> A FLAGPOLE IS NOT PRESENTLY

LEGAL.

>> Stephen: DOUG STERN IS THE

MAYOR OF RANCHO PALACE VERDE AND

THIS IS HIS IDEA OF A BIG FLAG.

(LAUGHTER).

>> WE BASICALLY REGULATE

EVERYTHING IN OUR CITY WITHOUT A

VARIANCE TO A HEIGHT OF 16 FEET.

>> Stephen: 16 FEET.

>> WHOEVER HEARD OF SUCH A

THING?

>> TRUMP, OF COURSE, BELIEVES HE

DOESN'T NEED A PERMIT TO PUT UP

A FLAG.

>> YOU DON'T NEED A PERMIT TO

PUT UP THE AMERICAN FLAG.

>> Stephen: BUT MAYOR "HATES

THE FLAG" SEEMS HUNG UP ON

OBEYING THE LAW.

>> THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN

INDIVIDUAL DECIDING THEY SIMPLY

ARE ABOVE THE LAW.

>> Stephen: EVEN WHEN THE LAW

IS WRONG?

ROSA PARKS TAUGHT US...

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

YOU SOMETIMES HAVE TO OPPOSE AN

UNJUST LAW, BUT THE MAYOR SAYS

ROSA PARKS IS A CRIMINAL.

>> I HAVE NEVER SAID ROSA PARKS

IS A CRIMINAL.

>> Stephen: OH, REALLY?

LET'S CHECK THE TAPE.

>> ROSA PARKS IS A CRIMINAL.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Stephen: ALL THIS UNWANTED

ATTENTION COMES AS A SHOCK TO

THIS SHY PHILANTHROPIST

>> I AM SHOCKED FOR PEOPLE TO BE

ASKING ME TO RIP DOWN THE

AMERICAN FLAG IS PRETTY TOUGH.

>> MR. TRUMP HAS CERTAINLY

ACCUSED ME OF HAVING THE DESIRE

TO RIP DOWN THE AMERICAN FLAG.

>> THAT'S REALLY WHAT THEY'RE

DOING.

THEY'RE RIPPING DOWN THE

AMERICAN FLAG.

I JUST CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY

WANT THIS.

>> YOU DON'T ALWAYS HAVE TO PUT

UP A HUGE FLAG JUST BECAUSE YOU

CAN.

>> Stephen: MR. MAYOR, IF

THERE'S ONE THING AMERICANS

KNOW: SIZE MATTERS.

WHEN IT COMES TO FLAGS OR

ANYTHING ELSE THAT WAVES IN THE

BREEZE.

(LAUGHTER)

BUT MAYOR STERNS DOESN'T

UNDERSTAND THAT THE DENYING

MR. TRUMP HIS POLE IS VERY

UN-AMERICAN.

>> IT REALLY IS RIDICULOUS.

>> Stephen: AND?

>> AND VERY UN-AMERICAN.

>> Stephen: BUT THIS

DIFFERENCE MAKER IS NOT GOING TO

GIVE UP THE FIGHT.

>> I LOVE FIGHTING FOR THE FLAG.

>> Stephen: IT'S ALL HE TALKS

ABOUT.

>> THE NUMBER-ONE GOLF COURSE IN

THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.

>> Stephen: YEAH, IT'S A NICE

COURSEMENT BUT WHAT'S IMPORTANT

IS THIS FLAG.

AND ITS MESSAGE OF FREEDOM, A

MESSAGE AS IMPORTANT TO DONALD

TRUMP AS IT WAS TO THE 13

ORIGINAL COLONIES.

>> I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE 13

STRIPES REPRESENT

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

>> Stephen: STILL, IT'S A NICE

COURSE.

>> THE NUMBER-ONE
