CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert played sore loser on Monday’s show when he suggested getting rid of the U.S. Senate, calling it an “anti-democratic” institution following the Democrats’ failure to eliminate the filibuster.
Stephen Colbert was chatting with guest Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) when he made the bizarre suggestion. “If you can’t get rid of the filibuster… then what if we just get rid of the Senate? And I’m 100 percent serious here. It is the most anti-democratic institution next to the judiciary,” he said.

He speaks for CBS.
I have a much better idea... let’s get rid of Steve Colbert.
That’s the reason it is a Republic and not a Communist State although he is part of the State and enjoys his perks.
People listen to him, think he’s smart and will 100% agree with what he said because they’re not getting their way.
Oh, how I miss the days of Johnny Carson. Johnny would make a joke about anyone, it didn’t matter their political stance. And, he kept his politics to himself. Colbert, Kimmel, et al can’t hold a candle to Johnny. (I used to like Letterman until he turned ugly and political during the Bush years.)
Traitors must swing.
Why not ALSO get rid of the House? And the Supreme Court and the state governments? Why not have an all-powerful dictator, like Hitler in Nazi Germany and Stalin in the Soviet Union? Along with concentration camps or gulags, whatever you want to call them, for political enemies? Then, finally!, we can have true democracy.
The dems act like spoiled children more and more each day. It’s a good thing they can’t send us to the corn field....yet.
Late night hosts used to tell jokes rather than of becoming them.
But he dishonesty fails to acknowledge that The Founders gave us a republic in order to prevent the inevitable tyranny due to a democracy.
He’s 100% Canadian and a bitchy beta male.
With all the money he makes, why doesn’t he get his deformed ear fixed?
All you need is 2/3 of the House, 2/3 of the (gulp!) Senate, and 3/4 of the states, and your wish is granted!
I’m glad they’re pursuing such a practical plan...
His show sure is funny.
Seems like some want a revolution of some kind. We live in interesting times.
I do...... I want America. I want the City States to be gone
Sigh. I remember when late-night “talk shows” were about entertainment. The only time politics was mentioned was if someone was making a political joke. Now, ALL of the late night shows are nothing but lame leftist political propaganda. Today’s shows remind me of the SCTV episode from the early 80’s in which the Soviets jammed American broadcast signals and started beaming their propaganda-themed programming to the USA.
And 100% stupid.
