On Monday night, Stephen Colbert mocked President Trump’s reported relationship with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). A report from The Washington Post revealed that Trump and McCarthy have gotten so close over the past year that the president refers to the congressman as “my Kevin.” “‘My Kevin?’ According to donut rules, that means Trump licked him!” Colbert quipped. The Late Show host then brought up how they reportedly bonded over Starbursts on Air Force One and that McCarthy had sent Trump a jar of just the red and pink Starbursts, which were the president’s favorites. “Oh, so Trump likes some colors more than others… just like his immigration policy,” he quipped. Colbert referred to McCarthy’s attempts to “shamelessly ingratiate” himself to the president as “McCarthyism,” and then blasted the two of them for the most “disturbing detail” from the report: “they both like to talk a Continue reading "Colbert Hits Trump Over Starbursts: Prefers Some Colors Over Others… ‘Like His Immigration Policy’"
On Monday night, Stephen Colbert had some fun at the expense of White House advisor Stephen Miller for his heated exchange with CNN’s Jake Tapper. The Late Show host mocked Miller, who he called a “shaved Pauly Shore,” for telling Tapper that President Trump is a “political genius.” “Yes, he is a political genius,” Colbert reacted,” who pioneered groundbreaking strategies like yelling and… having a hat.” He then noted the “subtle” tension between Miller and Tapper, especially when the CNN host told his guest to “settle down.” “Oh my God, he’s talking to Miller like he’s a 5-year-old!” Colbert exclaimed. “But everyone knows that Miller’s actual age is… 38? 61? Or 15? There’s no way to tell.” Colbert also laughed at Tapper’s use of vocabulary when he called Miller “obsequious” and a “factotum.” ” Looks like somebody got a word-a-day calendar for the holidays!” he Continue reading "Colbert Mocks Stephen Miller For Getting ‘The Omarosa Goodbye’ at CNN"
On Thursday night, Stephen Colbert mocked the White House press briefing for an on-screen “special guest.” Earlier in the afternoon, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders kicked off the briefing, which Colbert referred to it as the “Hucka Sanders Propaganda Variety Hour” by introducing President Trump to the White House Press Corps via television so he can boast his accomplishments. “He’s appearing on a video screen even though he’s 50 feet down the hallway!” Colbert reacted. “I have a message for the White House Press Corps: ‘The call is coming from inside the house! Get out of there! Get out!'” After taking a breather, Colbert said that he was “dizzy from the stupid.” The Late Show host also mocked that Trump appeared on two TV screens. “Isn’t it bad enough that we have to watch this guy on TV?” Colbert continued. “Why do we have to Continue reading "Colbert Blasts Trump’s Video Appearance During Press Briefing: ‘I’m Dizzy From The Stupid’"
Trump tweeted that he was announcing “THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR” next week. And it appears Colbert wants in. “Personally, I’m excited for ;The Most Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards of the Year,’ or as we call them in the biz, “The Fakies,” Colbert said. “Because nothing gives you more credibility than Donald Trump calling you a liar. And I, of course, don’t want to get snubbed.” Colbert told his audience that he had bought a billboard in Time Square, or “The Failing New York Time Square” and a full-page ad on Twitter launching a “For Your Consideration” campaign, something often used in Hollywood to promote films and TV shows during awards Continue reading "Colbert Buys ‘For Your Consideration’ Billboard in Time Square For Trump’s ‘Dishonest Media’ Awards"
Stephen Colbert had some fun at President Trump‘s expense over his “nuclear button” tweet. Colbert began by telling his audience that tonight we’re “closer to thermonuclear than last night” when “stackable dictator” Kim Jong-un bragged about having a nuclear button on his desk during a speech he made on New Year’s Day. “It was a terrifying threat from a desperate nation led by an unstable madman, so our president met with his national security team and did everything possible to de-escalate this potentially cataclysmic confrontation… I’m just kidding,” Colbert quipped. The Late Show host then impersonated Trump as he read his “nuclear button” tweet out loud. “Mr. Trump, you should be bragging about the size of your missile, okay?” Colbert reacted. “Traditionally, buttons are kind of a lady part. As in, ‘I don’t know if the president can find the button.'” Colbert said that he didn’t “want Continue reading "Colbert Mocks Trump’s ‘Nuclear Button’ Tweet: ‘You Should Be Bragging About The Size of Your Missile!’"
On Friday night, Stephen Colbert mocked the Trump family for their various failures in voting in the New York City mayoral election. According to a recent report from Newsweek, President Trump and several members of his family botched their absentee ballots in last month’s election. Trump himself reportedly got his own birth date wrong. “‘I can’t remember when I was born,” Colbert impersonated the president. “‘I demand that I release my long-form birth certificate. I think I was born in Kenya. That’s what I’m hearing. People are telling me. It’s got to be.'” The report notes that Trump was born on June 14, 1946, but he incorrectly put down July instead. “So he made himself a full month younger. Watch out, ladies!” Colbert joked. “Seriously, watch out. He’s a monster. Don’t go near him. He’ll grab you.” The Late Show host poked fun at First Lady Continue reading "Colbert Rips Trump For Botching Birth Date On Absentee Ballot: We Need a ‘Long-Form Birth Certificate’"
On Wednesday night, former NBA superstar Dennis Rodman stopped by The Late Show and shed some light on his unique relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Stephen Colbert kicked off the conversation by having Rodman explain his shirt, which had a image of himself between President Trump and Kim Jong-un with the word “unite” beneath them. “You. Must. Be. High,” Colbert told Rodman. When asked by The Late Show host why Rodman has visited North Korea five times since 2013, he answered it was because the dictator “liked” him and that he “trusts” him. “When I went over there, the first thing he said to me was, ‘Mr. Rodman, we just want to know, can we trust you?’ I said, ‘Absolutely.’ And that’s how our conversation started.” Rodman said. Rodman dismissed those who say Kim Jong-un is his “best friend,” but that he treats Rodman “as Continue reading "Dennis Rodman on His Relationship With Kim Jong-un: He’s ‘Probably’ a Madman, But I Don’t See it"
