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"
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"
Former FBI Director James Comey will be making his first appearance on late night television next month. On Tuesday night, Stephen Colbert announced that Comey will be joining him on The Late Show on April 17. “We’re gonna have to get a bigger chair and I’m gonna need a stepladder to interview the guy,” Colbert joked. It was announced last month that ABC’s George Stephanopoulos nabbed the first interview with Comey, which will be airing as a 20/20 primetime special on Sunday, April 15. Promos for the interview insist that “nothing’s off limits.” One can expect more interviews since Comey is debuting his new book A Higher Loyalty, which is being released two days later.

On Friday night, Stephen Colbert had some fun with the job opening for “Head Writer” that’s actually available on Fox & Friends. “Hold on, somebody writes Fox & Friends?” Colbert asked. “I thought they just got some monkeys drunk and gave them a ouija board.” The Late Show host called the ‘Head Writer’ position at Fox & Friends a “really big job” since the show’s most loyal viewer is President Donald Trump. “Keep in mind, and I’m not exaggerating, this is the show the president watches every morning to know what he thinks,” Colbert stressed. A much more honest ad would say, ‘Job Opening: The most influential writer in the world. Must be okay with having your casual thought instantly turned into global policy. Light Doocy wrangling.'” He then read what was actually in the job posting, which was that applicants needed to have at least Continue reading "Colbert Mocks Fox & Friends Job Opening: ‘The Most Influential Writer In The World’"
