Due to the avalanche of firings and resignations from the Trump administration, Stephen Colbert brought back a segment he did during the last presidential primaries. Back in 2015, when The Hunger Games was one of the biggest movie franchises, Colbert began saluting every candidate dropout from the primaries as the colorful character Caesar Flickman (made famous by Stanley Tucci) in what he called the “Hungry For Power Games.” Well, Flickman is back. And this time, it’s the “Hungry To Leave Power Games.” “Rex Wayne Tillerson, ah the joy of Rex,” Flickman began. “But who is- I’m sorry- who was Rex Tillerson?” His “tribute” of sorts started off noting that he was born in the “small town of ExxonMobil” and his net worth was $325,000,000 and nine-tenths of a cent.” He later addressed the time when Tillerson called President Trump a “f**king moron.” “Now now, Continue reading "Colbert Revives His Hunger Games Sendoff From The Election in Honor of Rex Tillerson"
It seems Tom Brady has been spending too much time with fellow Patriot Rob Gronkowski. After suffering a crushing defeat in this year’s Super Bowl to the Philadelphia Eagles, the quarterback appeared on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show — and told the host about his famed beer-chugging skills. Of course, Colbert came prepared with two pints of beer to test out Brady’s prowess, and the two held a chugging contest — which had the Patriot housing his beer in less than five seconds. Those skills have apparently been the talk of the town within the Patriots organization and were revealed by Patriots backup quarterback Brian Hoyer in an interview with ESPN last year, describing a night out with Brady at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. “We don’t usually get to experience him like this,” Hoyer said, explaining they had to coax him into showing off his beer-chugging skills. “He does it, and let Continue reading "WATCH: Tom Brady Crushes Stephen Colbert in Beer Chugging Contest"
Stephen Colbert opened Monday’s episode The Late Show with a breakdown of all the latest “presidential porn star news,” starting with reports that President Donald Trump’s legal team is attempting to thwart Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minutes interview from airing. “Just when you think there can’t be more presidential porn star news, suddenly there’s a bumper crop. ‘Bump Her Crop,’ by the way, one of Stormy Daniels’ most popular movies,” Colbert said. “Stormy recently sat down with Anderson Cooper for a 60 Minutes interview. Rumor is it’s going to be on this Sunday, but now Trump’s lawyers are considering a challenge to stop 60 Minutes from airing it. Why would Donald Trump be scared of a show whose logo is a ticking clock, slowly counting down the seconds until the time is up?” Colbert went on to note that Daniels has offered to pay back the $130,000 she was paid Continue reading "Stephen Colbert Fantasizes About ‘Donald Trump Sex Tape’: ‘Over Two Minutes of Hard Core Action!’"
Last night Stephen Colbert showed more from his recent trip to D.C., wherein the Late Show host attempted to fill all the vacant positions in the federal government. Colbert spoke with Partnership for Public Service CEO Max Stier about all these vacancies and whether he sees the government as “half-empty” or “half-full.” After trying to find out whether there were any vacancies in “the Deep State,” Colbert offered himself up as a potential candidate and walked through some of the questions, like whether he’s smoked marijuana in the past few years. But then he went out himself to find candidates for positions like Director of the National Drug Control Policy, Ambassador to South Korea, NASA administrator, and Director of the U.S. Marshals Service.

MSNBC host Chris Hayes appeared on The Late Show and shared his own theory about WikiLeaks’ involvement in the 2016 election. Hayes began by examining the “cover-up” of then-candidate Donald Trump‘s alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels and the timing of it since the non-discourse agreement was made after the infamous Access Hollywood tape was leaked. He noted that the day the tape was leaked was also the same day that WikiLeaks dumped its first batch of John Podesta emails. “I have always wondered about that timing and I think there’s something interesting about the fact that this got signed in the wake of the Access Hollywood tape that suggests to me that they were panicked about what the affects of that tape were that make me very interested in the timing of the WikiLeaks publishing,” Hayes told Stephen Colbert. Hayes explained that he thinks there’s a “plausible Continue reading "Chris Hayes: I Think WikiLeaks Coordinated Email Dumps In Reaction to The Access Hollywood Tape"
Stephen Colbert took a moment to address the late-breaking news regarding North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un’s invitation to meet with President Trump. Colbert explained to his audience that the announcement from the White House took place while they began taping the show, which was why it wasn’t addressed in the monologue. He then reacted to the news about the upcoming meeting. “Wow, this could only mean one thing… Dennis Rodman is gonna get the Nobel Peace Prize,” Colbert quipped. “Michael Jordan doesn’t have the Nobel Peace Prize.” The Late Show hosted joked that because North Korea is an “economically-starved country,” the invitation is “BYO Everything.” He then mentioned North Korea would “suspend its nuclear tests,” which Colbert called “progress.” “They’ve gone from ‘We’ll blow up Guam’ to ‘We pinky swear not to blow up Guam for a few days,'” Colbert continued. Colbert then told Trump Continue reading "Colbert Reacts To Trump/Kim Jong Un Meeting: ‘Dennis Rodman is Gonna Get The Nobel Peace Prize’"
For the past several weeks, Oprah Winfrey has repeatedly dismissed the idea of running for president despite having the enthusiastic support of many since giving her powerhouse speech at the Golden Globes. And in a recent interview with People Magazine, she said that she needed a “clear” sign from God in order for her to change her mind. Well, ‘God’ spoke to her during her appearance on The Late Show Tuesday night. ‘God’ told Winfrey that He’s a “huge fan.” “That’s great to hear. I’m a big fan of yours too, God,” Winfrey responded. “I really am.” “Wow, Oprah knows who I am?!? I can’t wait to tell Jesus!” God exclaimed. Stephen Colbert then chimed in asking ‘God’ if there was “something” He’d like to tell Oprah. “Oh yeah, I hear you seekest a sign? Well, is this clear enough?” God asked while holding a sign Continue reading "‘God’ Urges Oprah Winfrey to Run For President on The Late Show"
