The Late Show staff had some fun with Hillary Clinton in a segment Stephen Colbert calls “Just One Question.” Colbert explained to the audience that whenever he has a guest “so experienced and so knowledgeable,” his staff gets “excited” and wanted to ask her a question, which he allowed them to do. Various staffers got to ask questions to the former Secretary of State and she answered them while sitting on a set. But some of the questions may have been fed to her. “What is your proudest accomplishment as Secretary of State?” assistant Liz asked. “Oh, it was just such an honor to work with the incredible diplomats that serve our country around the world,” Clinton said. “The Rock or Vin Diesel?” writer John asked. “What a tough question,” she responded. Boy, the Fast and Furious movies proved that both are masters of high-octane action.

On Friday night, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo offered Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MT) a chance at another throw down after President Donald Trump celebrated his body slam of a reporter at a rally this week. Cuomo began by comparing the crowd roaring to Trump’s praise for Gianforte to Romans who roared “when lions mauled someone in the arena.” “Why does Trump praise bullies? Time and again, he celebrates punks who go after the little guy,” Cuomo said. “Does it on the world stage with bad guys whom you’re clearly impressed by. And do you it on the rally stage and make no mistake, he wasn’t just getting carried away in the moment.” The CNN anchor then railed against Gianforte. “Everything Gianforte did is weak, okay? He attacked someone who wasn’t a threat, was at every disadvantage, Gianforte showed no control, no confidence, no respect for his office or his constituents Continue reading "Chris Cuomo Dares Greg Gianforte to Body Slam Him If He Can’t Handle His Criticism: ‘I Welcome It’"
On Friday night, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich weighed in on potential 2020 candidates. Gingrich began by reacting to speculation that Hillary Clinton isn’t ruling a third run for the presidency, saying it’s a “nightmare” for red state Democrats running for reelection in the upcoming midterms. He acknowledged how his party has occasionally gone through cycles where they’ve been “terminally insane,” but said Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and her DNA test trying to prove her Native American ancestry is “beyond imagining” and said the timing of it was “terrible.” Laura Ingraham then asked “what the heck happened” to the Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) who used to be moderate and work with Republicans. “I thought he was pretty interesting,” Ingraham told the panel. “He was more of a Bill Clinton Democrat and then… he’s different now.” When asked if he thought Booker can united the Democratic Party, Gingrich dismissed Continue reading "Newt Gingrich Predicts Kamala Harris Will Face Off Against Trump in 2020"

Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo explained to Laura Ingraham that this was a private invitation-only event and that they harassed him from 5:30-8pm. “I have to say this: an official who works for the president, the president makes the decision Continue reading "Protesters Shout Down Henry Kissinger During NYU Event: ‘Rot in Hell!’"

On Friday night, Sean Hannity used some blunt language in hopes of motivating his viewers to get out and vote in the 2018 midterms. During his monologue, Hannity began listing several high-profile races, starting with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a “proven conservative,” versus Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), who he criticized for fleeing the scene of a DUI back in the 90s. He then moved to the Arizona Senate race between “war hero” Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) and “radical activist” Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) as well as the Tennessee Senate race between “friend of the show” Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Democratic candidate, “two face” Phil Bredesen. He also praised Gov.

Ron Desantis (R-FL), who is running for Continue reading "Hannity: If You Care About Due Process and the Constitution, ‘You Better Get Your Ass to The Polls’"
On Friday night, Tucker Carlson went after the “ruling class” for their reaction to the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Carlson began by slamming the “usual head-nodders” on cable news who seem “stunned” that Saudi Arabia is responsible for Khashoggi’s death. “They could hardly believe that a bloodthirsty, medieval theocracy would do something like this. ‘Really? The Saudis?’ The same people that cut off the hands of thieves and behead adulters in public parks? The same regime prosecuting one of the world’s cruelest wars in one of the poorest countries, Yemen? You’re telling me those people murdered a political opponent? It doesn’t sound like the Saudis we know.’ C’mon,” Carlson said. “Of course they did it. We knew they did it. Their only concern is they got caught. Now they have been caught and they probably regret the whole thing. All of it makes sense, none of it Continue reading "Tucker Carlson Says Ruling Class ‘Hyped and Manufactured’ Khashoggi’s Death to Push Their Own Goals"
