Brand new CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell on Thursday continued to announce just how pleased she is with herself and fellow journalists. Days after ending her inaugural broadcast vowing to fight “ignorance,” O’Donnell appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and hailed how people in her profession “make democracy work.” Talking to Colbert, she gushed over Walter Cronkite: “I have been reading Walter Cronkite's biography. He held the post for more than 20 years, was known as the most trusted man in America, the most trusted voice.” O’Donnell quoted approvingly, “One of the things he said is, ‘Journalism is what we need to make democracy work.’"
Perhaps trying to rival Stephen Colbert for most Trump-deranged evening host on television, MSNBC pundit and host Donny Deutsch went off the deep end while guest on Colbert’s The Late Show Tuesday over President Trump’s tweets against four Democrat congresswomen. Deutsch accused any American who voted for President Trump again in 2020 of accepting white racism, and claimed that we were living in “the most frightening time this country has ever faced.”
The 2019 Emmy nominations have been unveiled and (not so) surprisingly there are lots of lefty Hollywood specimens up for the illustrious TV awards. While many of you might be actually excited to see these people awarded for talent, we’re here to focus on which liberal heartthrobs get their rear-ends kissed by the industry the most.
The Late Show host Stephen Colbert devoted his entire opening monologue Thursday night to weighing in on the Democratic debate. From his perspective, the night had a clear winner: Kamala Harris. In addition to repeatedly praising Harris, Colbert trashed Republicans as racist and ignorant multiple times; including by covertly comparing them to the Ku Klux Klan.
It turns out that liberal debate moderator Chuck Todd is even annoying fellow leftist Stephen Colbert. The Late Show host, as well as guest Chris Christie, mercilessly mocked Todd for his pomposity. Colbert kept making fun of Todd throughout his opening monologue during the live show: “Half way through, there was a personnel switch with Rachel Maddow playing the part of Lester Holt and Chuck Todd playing the part of a guy who really likes the sound of his own voice.”
Wednesday night after the Democratic debate, CBS's Late Show host Stephen Colbert interviewed liberal sweetheart Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The congresswoman began: “I think sometimes with the debate stage this big, it can kind of seem like a high school classroom, and so there are some folks that, like didn’t seem like they read the book, and then they got called on.” Of course, this is an ironic analogy from someone who so often gets her facts wrong.
To the liberal media, besides President Trump and conservatives in general, there is no greater enemy than Fox News. Thus, the ensuing Hollywood takedown of its deceased founder, Roger Ailes, was an obvious move. Actor Russell Crowe appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Thursday night to promote his role as Ailes in the new series The Loudest Voice.
Was Chris Matthews about to get another “thrill" up his leg? During an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Tuesday, the MSNBC host got sentimental, dreamily reminiscing about Joe Biden’s time in the White House and his bromance with President Obama.
Everyone appreciates when a meddling celebrity with little understanding of governmental operations tells members of Congress how to do their jobs, sarcasm intended. This rings especially true when the member of Congress they are criticizing is a Republican. Nevertheless, Jon Stewart continued his endless attacks on Mitch McConnell during a guest appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday night.
Former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham appeared with his co-author/country musician Tim McGraw on CBS's Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night to discuss their book on how popular songs influenced American history, from the founding to the present day. Meacham thrilled the reliably anti-Trump audience by insisting that "we don't build monuments to people who build walls and shut doors."
Steven Colbert continued his streak Wednesday night of becoming the paramount late night host for Democratic primary candidates to speak with on the campaign trail press tour. Kirsten Gillibrand as well as Kamala Harris were given the royal treatment during their appearances on The Late Show, so it only makes sense the courtesy would be extended to Beto O’Rourke during his appearance on the show Wednesday night.
Rest assured, another left-leaning late night host and a liberal celebrity have weighed in on which Democrat is best to beat Donald Trump. During an appearance on The Late Show With Steven Colbert Monday night, Samuel L. Jackson and Colbert engaged in speculation over who will lead the Democratic Party ticket in 2020.
