The Late Show host Stephen Colbert delighted Wednesday night as his guest, actor John Lithgow, read aloud some anti-Trump poetry from his upcoming book Dumpty: The Age of Trump in Verse. The book features a collection of “doggerel, satirical poems” written by Lithgow that serve as a “kind of chronicle of the last crazy two years.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the greatest gift to political satirists since a certain Apprentice star hit the scene. If comedians ever tire of Trump jokes involving orange skin, huuuuge promises or small hands, she’s the next comedy revolution. Only the vast majority of comics won’t lay a glove on her. Which brings us to Stephen Colbert.
Now that the late night hosts have been denied collusion in the Mueller Report, CBS’s Stephen Colbert and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel freaked out that Americans will “die” as a new ObamaCare repeal effort could destroy the country. On Wednesday, Kimmel sneered, “Trump unleashed another attack on ObamaCare to make sure no one ever gets help from anyone ever again.”
During Tuesday night’s edition of The Late Show on CBS, liberal host Stephen Colbert yet again slammed President Trump. He also trashed Fox News as full of liars. This is ironic, given how wrong the rest of the media was on the Mueller report. As part of his routine that evening, the late-night comic attempted to shift blame from Trump’s critics to the President himself “because he acted super-guilty.”
Americans who expected any sort of real humility from the late night hosts in the wake of the Mueller report clearing Donald Trump were in for disappointment on Monday. Instead, the liberal comedians lashed out in disappointment and anger. Late Show host Stephen Colbert spat, “This weekend, we got some troubling news. Our president is not a Russian asset. Now, it just feels strange to say. Now, I say ‘troubling news’ because if Trump isn't working with the Russians, then what the hell is wrong with him?”
There’s no two ways about it: Robert Mueller is a heartbreaker. He led the Democrats, the media and Hollywood on for two years, loving them and leaving them with “No Collusion.” To Hollywood lefties, there’s nothing for it but sobbing into a pint of Haagen-Daaz. Hopefully, it’s Chocolate Chip Crow flavored.
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.
