    CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta appeared on The Late Show Tuesday to trash the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, with less than a week until the election. Gupta even agreed with Stephen Colbert that the president’s “plan” was to let millions of Americans die from the virus. After mocking the Trump administration listing their handling of the virus as an accomplishment, Gupta brought his CNN fear mongering to the late night “comedy” show. He predicted our death numbers could double in the next few months before slamming the Trump administration for “inviting in” the virus: You...

    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) signaled he would support a Congressional investigation of senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump’s personal email use during a Tuesday evening interview with CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert. The Washington Post reported Monday that Trump sent hundreds of emails from a personal email address that she shared with her husband and senior White House advisor Jared Kushner. Peter Mirijanian, a spokesperson for Trump’s attorney Abbe Lowell, said the emails almost exclusively revolved around “logistics and scheduling concerning her family.”
  • Stephen Colbert Calls Kimberly Guilfoyle a ‘Vengeful Banshee,’ Suggests Don Jr. Was on Cocaine During RNC Speech

    CBS’s left-wing host of The Late Show Stephen Colbert attacked Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle following the first night of the Republican National Convention, suggesting Trump Jr. had snorted cocaine and smearing Guilfoyle as a “vengeful banshee.” “Next stop on the love train, was Trump Jr. girlfriend and the vengeful banshee who will haunt your dreams, Kimberly Guilfoyle, who screamed this message of hope,” said Colbert. “When it came to the president’s agenda, she had some very nuanced screams.” Colbert then played a clip of Guilfoyle, who passionately delivered her RNC speech.
  • Activism: Colbert, Thunberg Hope Govt. Will Take 'Extraordinary Measures' Like With Coronavirus, For Climate

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert had media darling, and radical climate crusader Greta Thunberg on his show Tuesday night to discuss her latest accolades and activism. While there, Colbert urged the Swedish teen to mock President Trump and lamented with her that world leaders would not go to “extraordinary measures” like nationwide lockdowns, for climate change. After profusely thanking the teen making time in her busy schedule to talk to him, Colbert praised the teen for teaching other kids to ditch school to protest climate change in a worldwide walkout: “To me, it spoke to a hunger for an opportunity...

    When Never Trumper and Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson went on Stephen Colbert's parody news show on Monday night, Tooning Out the News, it would be a reasonable assumption that he probably looked forward to the interview. After all since the interviewers would be cartoon characters, it would probably be a lot of fun. Plus, since Stephen Colbert suffers from every bit as much of Trump Derangement Syndrome as Wilson he could expect it to be a friendly interview as well. What could go wrong? Well, everything. As you can see, by the end of interview, poor Wilson was stunned...

    I suspect Melania Trump has grown much wiser since her husband’s election. I bet she could always spot snakes and weasels from a mile out but I suspect now she can also smell them from that range.I wonder sometimes if she had any idea how dramatically her life would change with her husband’s election. I suspect not, how could she? How could anyone?  Who would ever think that a simple tweet honoring an honorable man: Together we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. #MLKDay pic.twitter.com/Bv6m1ZZtXG — Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) January 20, 2020 would become fodder for a late night hack’s...

    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.”
  • Awkward: Colbert Corners Warren on Middle Tax Class Increases, Calls Her Out When She Dodges

    On Stephen Colbert's CBS late night show, the host challenged Elizabeth Warren on the issue of single-payer healthcare, which she unequivocally supports. He attempted to nail the leftist Senator down on the question of whether or not middle class Americans' taxes would have to go up (they would, a lot) in order to fund the program she and Bernie Sanders have proposed. She ducked, he drilled down further, then she ducked again -- prompting the comedian to call her out on it, seemingly to her surprise: “You keep being asked in the debates, how are you going to pay...
  • Actual Politico Headline: 'How Trump Turned Liberal Comedians Conservative'

    Newsbusters ^ | June 16, 2019 | P.J. Gladnick
    Clickbait. That is the only possible explanation for Politico putting this headline on one of their articles on Saturday: "How Trump Turned Liberal Comedians Conservative." When the reader sees that there is almost no way they can resist finding out how liberal comedians became conservative due to Trump which was the premise of the title on the story by Joanna Weiss. Naturally, this thesis comes from a professor, Dannagal Young at the University of Delaware, who claims that liberals, like Jon Stewart in his Comedy Central heyday, are "playful, subversive, at once cynical and weirdly optimistic." Liberals under Trump, by contrast, are...

    California Rep. Eric Swalwell is officially in the running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Swalwell made the announcement during a taping Monday of CBS’ ”The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” The congressman says, “I see a country in quicksand, unable to solve threats from abroad, unable to make life better for people here at home.” He says, “None of that is going to change until we get a leader who is willing to go big on the issues we take on, be bold in the solutions we offer and do good in the way that we govern.” He says:...

    I’ve never seen such a nasty reaction to something so simple, honest, and sincere. Jay Leno appeared on the "Today Show" last week to discuss the importance of monitoring cholesterol. During the interview, Al Roker pivoted to ask if he missed hosting the “Tonight Show.” Leno’s answer detailed the reasons it’s no longer a forum he recognizes or misses. “Now everyone HAS to know your politics…When people see you as one-sided, it just makes it tough,” Leno said. “And look, I did it when Clinton was horny and Bush was dumb. It was just a little easier. You know, now...

    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.”

    The Week ^ | 1/30/19
    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was Stephen Colbert's guest on Tuesday's Late Show, and at his request, they began the interview with tequila shots. "Where do you think the wheels came off during the shutdown?" Colbert asked. "The president blew it," Christie replied. "When?" Colbert asked, and Christie answered: "When he shut the government down with no plan on how to reopen it." Christie said he warned Trump beforehand that "if you're going to do this, you'd better have an exit plan." That obviously didn't happen, "and he got goose egg," Colbert said. "Yes, in politics, we call that...

    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...

    Colbert, the host, said his staffers get excited when someone as knowledgeable as Clinton is in the building, so he gave them the OK to ask the former presidential hopeful a single question. The segment was edited and the workers were asked in various locations around the building. Clinton was inside a studio.

    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!...
