Considering that journalists are already talking about a “Colbert primary” for 2020 Democrats, it’s pretty clear that the Late Show host has decided he’s now only talking to half the country. On Monday night, Stephen Colbert gushed over “media virtuoso” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, hyping that she doesn’t give a “f**k” about offending people. Noting that some Democrats have been less than thrilled with the antics of the millennial Congresswoman, Colbert cheered, “I want to ask this question in a respectful manner, knowing also that you’re from Queens, so, you’ll understand this question. On a scale from zero to some, how many [bleeped] do you give?”
Five years can be a very long time, especially at the Washington Post, which criticized President Trump for "turning the White House into a White Castle” fast food restaurant while hosting the national champions of the Clemson Tigers football team. But back in 2014, the liberal newspaper viewed the eating habits of then-President Barack Obama much differently by describing the Democratic occupant of the White House and his fondness for cheeseburgers as a "love story.”
Liberal CBS host Stephen Colbert is quickly becoming the home of choice for 2020 Democrats announcing they are running for president. On Tuesday’s Late Show, Colbert went so far as to hold hands with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand as he excitedly wondered, “So I'm just curious, do you have anything you would like to announce?” There were no tough questions. Quite a contrast to when the host grilled actor Kevin Hart last week about years-old politically incorrect comments, telling the comic star “It’s my show, I’ll do whatever the f**k I want.”
Liberal Late Show host Stephen Colbert has no problem trashing conservatives and Republicans in the nastiest manner. But when hard-left Democratic Senator Kamala Harris appeared on his show, Thursday, he turned into an excited fan boy. Discussing the California politician’s new book, Colbert gushed, “What makes you happy? Where does your hope come from?”
Another year, another opportunity for TV writers to express their liberal bias and deeply-rooted Trump Derangement Syndrome. Unless you’re a fan of bashing conservatives, stroking racial tensions, and sexualizing children, 2018 was not a great year for television. As I feared, things have definitely gotten worse.
On CBS’s Thursday night broadcast of The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert aired a cartoon Christmas special titled "A Very Special Counsel Christmas" in which Donald Trump, ICE agents, and a pro-Confederate criminal Santa team up to steal presents from all the world’s small children and enslave the North Pole’s elves to build a wall on America’s southern border. At the end of the day, Kris Kringle (as the real Santa Claus) and Robert Mueller are forced to team up to save Christmas by putting Trump in jail after finding proof of Russian collusion.
Late Tuesday on CBS’s The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert riffed at length about the continuing downfall of his former boss and alleged sexual predator Les Moonves, who stepped down as the CEO of CBS in September after accusations of rampant sexual assault and harassment from several past female colleagues emerged against him. But ultimately, in spite of the seriousness of the charges against Moonves, Colbert concluded that the disgraced former chief executive would still be a better President of the United States than Donald Trump.
Longtime presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin was a guest on the Monday edition of CBS's The Late Show, and liberal host Stephen Colbert peppered her with questions about former occupants of the White House, especially her favorites: Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson (whom she worked for in the White House). Of course, most of the discussion focused on using history to slam Donald Trump, with the host going so far as to ask his guest which of “her guys” she’d want to "take on" the current Republican president.
Where do you go to find solace if you’re an actress who’s perpetrated a tasteless, gory publicity stunt? The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Kathy Griffin, a comedian who became a household name only after her infamous photoshoot where she grasped the hair of a disembodied, bloody model of President Trump’s head, was welcomed by CBS’s Stephen Colbert on Dec. 7.
On CBS’s Tuesday night broadcast of The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert dedicated a short segment of his “Meanwhile…” bit to making fun of a man who accidentally shot himself in the groin inside an Arizona Walmart store. Momentarily striking a more serious tone, however, Colbert also said that the incident was “further proof that all of our gun laws are too lax” and ridiculed the NRA for its well-known stance that individual people are responsible for shootings, not their guns.
The longer Donald Trump remains the occupant of the White House, the more difficult it becomes for virtually anyone in entertainment to discuss the GOP official without spewing enormous amounts of venom. A recent example of this came on Saturday, when long-time actress Meryl Streep told CBS Late Show host (and frequent Trump basher) Stephen Colbert during a fund-raising event in New Jersey that “I’m scared” of the President.
To hear the media tell it - Donald Trump activated racists this election cycle, was singularly responsible for border violence and is literally going to kill us all by burning up the planet. The following are the worst liberal outbursts over the past month from lefty journalists and celebrities:
