Stephen Colbert sat down with British talk show host Graham Norton during Thursday’s edition of The Late Show. Not surprisingly, the two teamed up to trash the leaders of their respective countries: President Trump and Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Norton’s commentary definitely indicated that the infiltration of left-wing politics into comedy shows is not unique to the United States.
Stephen Colbert’s Late Show has become a required stopping point for 2020 Democrats. Making it clear that he has no interest in bipartisan jokes, Colbert is basically stumping for all the contenders. On Thursday’s show, the host tried to pretend that Mayor Pete Buttigieg isn’t extremely liberal.
After initially grilling former Vice President Joe Biden on being a “gaffe machine,” later on Wednesday’s CBS Late Show, aired early Thursday morning, host Stephen Colbert wondered if the 2020 Democratic frontrunner would appoint his old boss, President Obama, to the Supreme Court if elected.
Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show has established itself as the prime place for actors in Tinsel Town to rail against President Trump in any way they see fit. The latest to partake in the mockery was British actor Brian Cox on Monday’s program. The topic of discussion centered around Cox’s HBO show Succession, which depicts the family of a media mogul loosely modeled after News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch.
It is par for the course to hear demands of gun control from the media in the aftermath coverage of a mass shooting. The leftist brigade of late night hosts’ stood in solidarity Monday night in their opposition to the Second Amendment and calls for stricter gun laws.
After complaining that Democrats somehow didn't attack President Trump enough in their debates, Colbert turned to Trump's rally in Cincinnati in a segment called "Chopper Talk," where they made Trump bald for comedic effect. Colbert enjoyed how reporters kept pressing (and failing) to make Trump promise to stop any "Send Her Back" chants about Ilhan Omar, who the Democrats deeply adore, despite the special pleading for ISIS recruits and the anti-Semitism.
Not even a Democratic debate could distract the leftist late-night loon Stephen Colbert from trashing on President Trump late Tuesday night. Colbert welcomed Jeff Daniels on The Late Show where he became the latest in a series of actors on the program to make a vile comment towards the President, including the hope that Trump’s opponent can “punch him in the face.”
Elitist, left-wing celebrities have been at the forefront of the resistance movement in opposition to President Trump throughout his presidency. From Kathy Griffin’s severed Trump head to Madonna fantasizing about blowing up the White House, beyond-the-pale behavior from Hollywood has become the norm. However, on the Friday edition of CBS's The Late Show, actor John Leguizamo took the cake for perhaps the strangest critique of the President yet.
The network newscasts reacted to the elevation of Boris Johnson as Britain’s prime minister in the same way they did to Donald Trump: Shock and horror. Media elites are still scratching their heads as to how this series of events has come about, concluding the reason must be steeped in racism. Among them is none other than Late Show host Stephen Colbert.
The Late Show host Stephen Colbert began his monologue Thursday night slamming the media’s coverage of Robert Mueller’s dud of a hearing, Wednesday. While complaining that CNN and MSNBC only cared about ratings, he fretted they were missing the bigger picture: Republicans want to ‘Kremlin-alize’ elections and ‘Doctor’ Mueller was just trying to save the country.
It’s hard to see the Mueller hearings on Wednesday as anything other than a disaster for liberals in politics and in the media. Yet, Stephen Colbert further cemented his status as a “resistance” backer as he defended Mueller on Wednesday night’s The Late Show. Colbert berated Chris Wallace to the point that the Fox News host shot back: “You’re part of the anti-Trump tribe.”
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.’"
