On Monday, the late night comedy show hosts from all three networks came out strongly against President Trump, for what they deemed was an inadequate and “shameful” reaction the violence in Charlottesville. While NBC’s Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon didn’t veer into crass and extreme rhetoric like NBC’s other, more colorful late-night host Seth Meyers did, Fallon still called out Trump for his “shameful” response to Charlottesville. ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel also made several jokes claiming Trump was a member of the KKK.
The far-left Stephen Colbert on Wednesday offered this nasty reasoning as to why North Korea shouldn’t launch nuclear weapons against Guam: The people there didn’t vote for Donald Trump. The panicky Late Show host blamed the President for the situation: “Donald Trump saw their threat of apocalypse and raised them one armageddon.”
Veteran journalist Kurt Andersen’s 13,000-word cover story for the September issue of The Atlantic, “How America Lost Its Mind," is an attack on Trump and what he sees as the Republican Party's recent retreat from reality, but skips Democratic embrace of conspiracy theories, and assumes the news was fair and balanced before Rush Limbaugh's "unending and immersive propaganda" and Fox News came along.
Just like the networks’ morning news broadcasts today, late night host Stephen Colbert spent more energy freaking out about President Trump’s reaction to North Korea’s nuclear threat, than he did about the threat itself, on his Tuesday night show.
It has been announced today that Showtime has given the go ahead for a 10 episode series of animated shows about President Donald Trump to air this Fall. So will this cartoon series be done in the spirit of good fun such as the way Vaughn Meader satirized John F. Kennedy in his First Family album over 50 years ago? Well, the fourth sentence of this Variety article reveals that probably won't be the case.
Ultra left-wing activist and filmmaker Michael Moore is so desperate to get President Trump out of office, his absurd ideas of how to accomplish that show just how out of touch he is. Wednesday night on fellow Trump-hater Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show, Moore complained that he “refused to live” in Trump’s America, so “something’s got to change.” Laying down an ultimatum, Moore commanded that everyone who hates Trump must form an “army of satire” to “bring him down.”
CBS hosts Stephen Colbert and Charlie Rose are disgusted with the “moral heresy” delivered by Donald Trump when he spoke to the Boy Scouts on Monday. Rose appeared on Tuesday’s Late Show and the first thing he wanted to talk about was the speech: “Boy, that interview with the Boy Scouts keeps on giving, doesn't it?”
Former Vice President-turned-global warming activist Al Gore has been making his media rounds this week to promote his new film, An Inconvenient Sequel (which is of course the sequel to An Inconvenient Truth.) Monday night he appeared on Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show, where the severely anti-Trump host spent nearly the entire interview asking about the president.
Yet another media mogul has slammed religious freedom group Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) as an “anti-LGBTQ hate group” as it defends a Christian baker who refused to sell a cake for a gay couple’s wedding. This time, it was late-night talk show host Stephen Colbert.
On Thursday, CBS’s The Late Show host Stephen Colbert reminded everyone how lewd and pathetic his behavior has been, tearing into White House senior counsel Kellyanne Conway as “Satan's trophy wife” during a shtick mocking her most recent Hannity appearance defending the Trump administration from Russian collusion claims.
