If you want to understand what the Republican in the White House is thinking or doing, the best person you can turn to is a liberal Democrat. At least, that’s what Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show on CBS, seemed to believe on Wednesday night. While talking with Alabama Senator Doug Jones -- who narrowly defeated Republican Roy Moore in a special election last December -- Colbert was particularly interested in two topics: whether President Trump creates an atmosphere that leads to violence and if the Democratic official had to bring in an exorcist when he moved into the office of Republican former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Given the ongoing anti-Trump onslaught in late-night television, it should come as no surprise that Republicans and Democrats have very different perspectives on how political content is used in those “comedy” shows, whether they’re on the mainstream networks or cable TV. According to a recent survey, 54 percent of Democrats said they watch late-night talk shows, compared to 26 percent of Republicans. Also, Democrats were far more likely than those in the GOP to say they like it when late-night hosts discuss politics or personal political views.
Appearing on the third hour of NBC’s Today show on Tuesday, former Tonight Show host Jay Leno lamented how “everyone has to know your politics” now if you’re a late-night comedian. He mentioned that he prided himself on not letting viewers know his political views and feared that many comedians have become too “one-sided” when it comes to politics.
There’s nothing funnier than comparing a Supreme Court Justice to an alleged serial rapist, right? Well that’s what Late Show host Stephen Colbert thought, comparing the explosive interview rapper R. Kelly gave to CBS’s Gayle King Wednesday morning to conservative Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing last Fall.
How often have we seen Hollywood celebrities praised as courageous for “coming out” and admitting they're gay? Isn't it far more courageous for people to profess their Christian faith? Hollywood is not a tolerant city. Dominated by activist leftists, it is a culture hostile to dissenting views. We see it in its work product. Most movies and television shows are laced with political messages and politically correct symbolism. The heroes almost always are liberal and promote “progressive” values and causes, and conservatives are depicted as morally degenerate hayseeds or villains.
Proud Christian Hollywood superstar Chris Pratt is finally hitting back at LGBTQ actress Ellen Page for attacking his faith.
The entire crew of CBS This Morning appeared on a special live edition of the Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Unsurprisingly, they were “disturbed” by the President’s talk of a wall on the southern border and of his touting of the U.S. economy.
Openly gay actress and liberal activist Ellen Page appeared on The Late Show Thursday and went on an bizarre rant against everything from media coverage of global warming to the alleged hate crime against actor Jussie Smollett. She predicted the world was going to end in the next eleven years, yet no one was talking about it, and emotionally ripped into the Vice President for causing the alleged anti-gay attack against Smollett.
Always logical left-wing director Michael Moore was so distraught about the government shutdown that he told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Thursday people should just abandon their duties to the government, including paying taxes. Moore went on to tell people not to "commit crimes" because the "FBI wasn't getting paid."
Considering that journalists are already talking about a “Colbert primary” for 2020 Democrats, it’s pretty clear that the Late Show host has decided he’s now only talking to half the country. On Monday night, Stephen Colbert gushed over “media virtuoso” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, hyping that she doesn’t give a “f**k” about offending people. Noting that some Democrats have been less than thrilled with the antics of the millennial Congresswoman, Colbert cheered, “I want to ask this question in a respectful manner, knowing also that you’re from Queens, so, you’ll understand this question. On a scale from zero to some, how many [bleeped] do you give?”
Liberal CBS host Stephen Colbert is quickly becoming the home of choice for 2020 Democrats announcing they are running for president. On Tuesday’s Late Show, Colbert went so far as to hold hands with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand as he excitedly wondered, “So I'm just curious, do you have anything you would like to announce?” There were no tough questions. Quite a contrast to when the host grilled actor Kevin Hart last week about years-old politically incorrect comments, telling the comic star “It’s my show, I’ll do whatever the f**k I want.”
Liberal Late Show host Stephen Colbert has no problem trashing conservatives and Republicans in the nastiest manner. But when hard-left Democratic Senator Kamala Harris appeared on his show, Thursday, he turned into an excited fan boy. Discussing the California politician’s new book, Colbert gushed, “What makes you happy? Where does your hope come from?”
