On the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, comedian Seth Rogen admitted to direct messaging Donald Trump, Jr. several times. While Rogen declared his tweets were “polite and measured,” they only made the comedian look like a typical Twitter troll.
The 71st Annual Tony Awards was broadcast from Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Sunday night on CBS. The June 11th ceremony was charged with honoring excellence on Broadway, hosted by former Tony winner actor Kevin Spacey.
It’s not just the press that are freaked out by Donald Trump. Talk show hosts and celebrities from Stephen Colbert to Robert DeNiro, Katy Perry and Rosie O’Donnell are losing their minds over the new president: DeNiro claimed Trump was worse than con-man Bernie Madoff: “He’s a pig”; Perry whined that Trump’s election brought “a lot of trauma for me”; Colbert infamously characterized Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin in the most obscene terms; and O’Donnell sounded like she was fomenting a revolution: “We have never had this kind of treasonous madness in power before. Desperate times - desperate measures.”
The Trump administration has given late night TV new life. But for all their digs at the president, Stephen Colbert and his ilk aren’t doing much better than POTUS at bringing the country together.
Late Show host Stephen Colbert doesn’t hide his disdain for President Donald Trump. He celebrates it.
Even the backlash over Colbert’s recent gay sex joke about Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin did little to slow down the host’s anti-Trump monologues.
Not convinced the media is the opposition party yet? Well, Thursday provided another example as CNN issued a statement disguised as an editorial, blasting President Donald Trump's comments he made about liberal CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon as “beneath the dignity of the office of the President."
Awww, that Daily Show reunion was going so well until breaking news had to intervene. More accurately, it wasn't the breaking news that President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey was so deliciously awkward -- it was the wildly enthusiastic reaction to that news from Late Show host Stephen Colbert's audience.
Just a few days after CBS’s Stephen Colbert unleashed a vulgar tirade against President Trump, a new study has documented just how unfriendly late night TV has been to the new Commander-in-Chief. The Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University counted an incredible 1,060 jokes directed against Trump during the President’s first 100 days in office. That’s more than ten times as many barbs as aimed at all Democrats — combined — during the same period (95), and considerably more than both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton received during the entire first year of their presidencies (936 and 440 jokes, respectively).
I oppose the push to remove "The Late Show" comedian Stephen Colbert from the air because of his obscene tirade against President Donald Trump. In fact, I wish the video of his boorish diatribe would go viral. The best remedy against the political left's ongoing crusade to remake America in its own vulgar image is maximum exposure of its irrationality.
TV comedy cannot be too harsh when directed at Donald Trump. There are no limits, and CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert has proven it. Under the rubric of corporate loyalty after the president cut an interview short with CBS host John Dickerson, mocking his show as “Deface the Nation,” Colbert called president a “prick-tator” and then suggested the only thing the president’s mouth was good for was as a “holster” for the sexual organ of Russian strongman Vladimir Putin.
CNN media reporter Brian Stelter offered a mysterious utterance in a segment on Colbert's crude penis-holster joke against the president on Thursday's New Day, proclaiming his public agreement with Sean Hannity. He insisted: "I've never said those words before." But he came out against boycotts of Colbert's advertisers.
Are you kidding? This comes just days after CNN's Media Unit pestered Bill O'Reilly's advertisers for days to withdraw their money from Fox News.
After angering many well-mannered Americans and seeing the #FireColbert hashtag go viral over a two day period, so-call comedian Stephen Colbert started off The Late Show on Wednesday by doubling down on his low-brow “humor.” “I don't regret that,” he told his audience. The outcry Colbert was defying stemmed from an angry and curse-filled tirade that he leveled against President Trump Monday night.
