  • Joe Biden Wears Mask On ‘Stephen Colbert’ & Vows To ‘Beat’ Donald Trump

    Hollywood Life ^ | 05 22 2020 | Jade Boren (Evening Writer)
    Joe Biden debuted his protective gear on late night TV, just hours after Trump finally wore a face mask — very briefly. The POTUS didn’t want to ‘give the press the pleasure of seeing it.’ Unlike Donald Trump, Joe Biden has no problem with protecting others by wearing a face mask. The presumptive Democratic nominee for the upcoming 2020 presidential election briefly strapped his face mask on during the May 21 episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, his first time doing so on late night television (but certainly not his first time wearing a mask in general). It...

    Joe Biden is scheduled to appear on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" on Thursday, marking the former vice president's fifth visit to the program and first since becoming the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Biden's appearance will be virtual from his Wilmington, Del., home, where he has been conducting his campaign for more than two months since the coronavirus pandemic prompted stay-at-home orders throughout the country. Biden recently conducted a virtual town hall with Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams on MSNBC on Friday. President Trump, whose reelection has also largely moved online during the pandemic, has not appeared on any of...

    Eager to join the rest of the media in politicizing the coronavirus, on Monday’s CBS Late Show, liberal host Stephen Colbert sought to use the disease to attack President Trump. Colbert commenced the thrashing session with an opening monologue in which he skewered Trump over his response to the coronavirus:

    Appearing Monday on CBS’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert, actor Robert De Niro posited that newly-minted presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg “might be the one” to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020. “I like Bloomberg. He’s an adult. He’s a grownup,” De Niro, one of Hollywood’s most virulent Trump critics, told Colbert when asked if he’s previously met the billionaire and former New York City mayor.

    CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert admitted on his recent visit to New Zealand that he is no longer proud of his country. Cycling through the capital of Wellington on a four-wheeled bicycle, Colbert asked two New Zealanders whether they feel proud of their country. “Oh, yeah, love that,” one of them replies, to which Stephen Colbert responds: “I miss that feeling.”
  • Sherrod Brown: GOP colleagues privately acknowledge Trump is racist, misogynist

    Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown (D) alleged in a new interview that his Republican colleagues in the Senate have privately admitted that President Trump is “racist” and “misogynist.” “Most Republican senators, when you talk to them individually, quietly, will acknowledge that Trump is a racist,” Brown said during a Monday interview on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert. “They’ll acknowledge that Trump is a misogynist, they’ll acknowledge he has trouble telling the truth.” Brown also blasted Trump over the whistleblower complaint filed earlier this year accusing him of withholding military aid to Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into former Vice...
  • Colbert’s Audience Gives Standing Ovation to News of Trump Impeachment Inquiry (Video)

    The Wrap ^ | September 24, 2019 | Ross A. Lincoln
    In his opening monologue, Stephen Colbert didn’t get the chance on Tuesday to tell a lot of jokes about the news that the House of Representatives has launched a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. But his audience didn’t seem to care, because they were too busy celebrating with a standing ovation. On Tuesday’s “The Late Show,” Colbert began by rattling off numerous Donald Trump scandals, including “Russian collusion, obstruction of justice, saying Nazis are fine people, being an unnamed co-conspirator to campaign finance violations, lying about the Moscow Trump Tower, stealing money to pay for the border wall”...
  • The Colbert Report on Elizabeth Warren: When will she disclose the tax hikes on average Americans?

    This is a dangerous time for comedians who make inappropriate remarks, putting Stephen Colbert in an especially precarious position. On Tuesday Mr. Colbert welcomed presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass) to his “Late Night” television program on CBS. Mr. Colbert then engaged in a conversation which many journalists find deeply offensive when he pressed their favorite “ideas candidate” to explain how taxpayers will bear the cost of her ideas. After a pleasant several minutes of discussion Mr. Colbert told the senator that the “most radical thing that you’re proposing is Medicare for All.” The comedian then continued where friendly...

    If you're a liberal, what's more fun than watching the liberal press trash conservatives seven days a week? How about watching the entertainment media mock conservatives for complaining about all this abuse? CBS-owned Showtime has created a Trump-blasting animated series called "Our Cartoon President," reminiscent of that George W. Bush-bashing "Lil' Bush" series that Comedy Central made while Bush was in office. Can you imagine Showtime having aired a president-mocking cartoon while Bill Clinton or Barack Obama were in office? How about one about President Hillary? They wouldn't dare. Showtime thinks it's funny to claim that conservatives say they are...

    The way actress Julianna Margulies tells her story, she’s probably lucky she didn’t wind up in an ER. The former “ER” star told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert on Monday night that for a while she would wake up “screaming” from nightmares after Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016. Margulies recalled one dream in particular, according to the Washington Examiner. “I was in a boardroom, there was a long table, and it was just a guy who's in the Oval Office right now, sitting there and I walked in and I [was] screaming, screaming. ... I mean I was...

    Meghan McCain didn’t know that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner would attend her father’s funeral — and she wishes they hadn’t. “It made me uncomfortable,” McCain told Stephen Colbert when she was a guest on “The Late Show” Thursday night. “And I hope I made them uncomfortable, honestly.” McCain, a co-host of “The View,” also said that she is very much a conservative — but that if former Vice President Joe Biden runs for president and gets the Democratic nomination, “I’m going to have to quit television because I can’t say anything bad about him.”

    Earlier this week, the federal government’s National Science Foundation, an entity created to encourage the study of science — encouragement that it achieves by awarding grants to scholars and universities — announced that it had awarded a grant to study what people say about themselves and others in social media. The NSF dubbed the project Truthy, a reference to comedian Stephen Colbert’s invention and hilarious use of the word “truthiness.” The reference to Colbert is cute, and he is a very funny guy, but when the feds get into the business of monitoring speech, it is surely no joke; it...

    Well, this sounds interesting and probably sinister and open to manipulation: The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter. The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online. The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.” The university has received $919,917 so far for the project. “The project stands...

    Did you hear the one about President Trump? Or, more precisely, did you hear all 3,128 jokes? A think tank that has studied the content of late-night comedy for the past 26 years said Donald Trump was the butt of more jokes in 2017 than any other public figure has for a single year. By a lot. He beat the previous record of 1,816, set by Trump as a presidential candidate in 2016, said the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University in a study released Friday. Prior to that, the record was 1,717 by former President...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made yet another bold prediction in the days leading up to the midterm elections—Democrats “will win” the House. Pelosi, D-Calif., who is hoping to take back the gavel and assume her former position as House speaker, has projected confidence for months about her party's chances of regaining the majority. But in her latest comments, she predicted victory, with no caveats, while suggesting Democrats could even take the Senate -- though recent polling still reflects a GOP advantage in the upper chamber. “Let me say this. Up until today, I would’ve said, ‘If the election were...

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert described President Donald Trump’s jokes about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a “racist tirade” amid the ongoing drama over her supposed American Indian ancestry. On Tuesday, Warren released test results indicating that she had a maximum of 1.6 percent “Mesoamerican” heritage, which is far below the minimum requirement to claim membership of most Native American tribes. “After years of mocking Elizabeth Warren, clearly the President must have had a lot to say about these test results,” Colbert said, before playing a clip of Trump saying he did not care about the test results. “You care!...
