As part of CBS kissing up to CBS, Late Show host Stephen Colbert brought on 60 Minutes correspondent (and former Evening News anchor) Scott Pelley to promote his new book Truth Worth Telling. No one was going to bring up Dan Rather, not to mention Pelley's dismissed 60 Minutes colleagues Charlie Rose and Jeff Fager, let alone the sexual harasser at the top, Les Moonves. No, Pelley came on to lecture about how President Trump and foreign governments are poisoning the information well. It sounded like...collusion.
If it wasn’t already clear that Stephen Colbert has contempt for Trump voters, the Late Show host made it obvious on Thursday night. A cartoon that opened the show mocked Trump-voting farmers as dumb, drunk hicks who deserve to suffer. The host turned the Mother Goose nursery rhyme “Farmer in the Dell” into an R-rated cartoon accusing the President of hurting farmers with his new tariffs during his trade war with China.
Former late night host David Letterman appeared on Today, Friday, to preview the new season of his Netflix series and to bash Donald Trump. Asked by NBC’s Willie Geist if he missed his old CBS Late Show, Letterman said no and admitted he would be really “ugly” to Trump if still on the air. The host explained how he would handle Trump: “My approach would have been head on. And probably inelegant. Probably really inelegant.”
With the chaos engulfing CBS over the last couple years, it was announced that a new line-up of hosts will take over CBS This Morning on Monday. Gayle King will stay, but Tony Dokoupil and Anthony Mason will be added, which does not bode well for the show's dwindling objectivity. On Tuesday Mason appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to brag about how he had campaigned for Democrat President Lyndon Johnson... at age eight.
MSNBC host and Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber appeared on The Late Show Tuesday night. Not surprisingly, the Mueller probe came up. After Melber and host Stephen Colbert analyzed and discussed the prospects for impeachment, Colbert shockingly pushed back on Melber’s claim of objectivity: “come on…you guys bang a drum over there sometimes.”
April has come and gone with no shortage of absolute hatred and contempt from media progressives. Entertainment programming from major networks, cable TV and popular streaming services have delivered another 40 deranged anti-Trump/conservative scenes for impressionable viewers, providing God-fearing viewers another valid reason to grab those torches and pitchforks. Much of this month’s material is simply monstrous.
On April 30, liberal comedian Stephen Colbert took a momentary break from his constant slams on President Trump to focus on some other favorite targets of the CBS Late Show host: the National Rifle Association and the organization’s spokeswoman, Dana Loesch.
Stephen Colbert couldn’t resist. Former Vice President Joe Biden finally announced his 2020 presidential campaign last week. Biden joined a crush of fellow Democrats hoping to unseat President Donald Trump next year. Naturally, The Late Show host had to talk about it. And, given the program’s leftist slant, Colbert didn’t find much fault in Biden’s video announcement.
The Late Show host Stephen Colbert devoted his opening monologue Wednesday night to trashing Attorney General Bill Barr. Throughout the course of the monologue, Colbert referred to Barr as a “political call girl” and praised the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee for their questioning of Barr earlier in the day.
Spoofing current events has long been a staple for late-night comedians, but The Late Show on CBS with liberal host Stephen Colbert uses "spoofing" to project all its hateful takes as "comedy." They took the practice to an extremely irritating level on Wednesday evening, predicting the Mueller report would be heavily redacted. That turned out to be....Fake News.
Now that Donald Trump has been in the White House for more than two years, certain words “trigger” emotional responses from late-night comedians and their liberal guests. One of those terms is “wall,” which liberals have used to mock the barrier the President wants to build on the southern border between the U.S. and Mexico. CNN newsman Anderson Cooper said that word while a guest on Wednesday evening’s edition of The Late Show on CBS, when liberal host Stephen Colbert discussed the first picture of a black hole in space -- and it was all downhill from there.
After being the face of a celebratory Newsweek cover this week, Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar from Minnesota appeared on the Late Show Wednesday night to get the star treatment yet again. The controversial freshman Democrat was in trouble again this week for making audacious comments about 9/11, but she was safe from any criticism from host Stephen Colbert. He didn’t even ask her about this, instead, egging her on to attack Fox News for daring to air these comments that the rest of the media largely ignored.
