Colbert Trashes Justice Kennedy: ‘Don’t Tell Me Your Mind’s Going… You Never Had One!’

On Wednesday night, Stephen Colbert reacted to the announcement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy‘s retirement, and he wasn’t too thrilled about it. “I never thought I’d say this… but you’re only 81!” Colbert exclaimed. “You know what they say, they say 81 is the new 79! And don’t tell me your mind’s going. Because I’ve read Bush v. Gore and Citizens United, you never had one!” Colbert called the retirement of Justice Kennedy a “seismic political event” since he was the deciding vote in many SCOTUS rulings and the vacant seat gives President Donald Trump the opportunity to nominate a second conservative judge. “Oh, we are supremely screwed,” Colbert told his audience. “I look forward to Wolf Blitzer in 2021, ‘In the end, this Supreme Court case will be decided by the swing vote, Justice Meatloaf.'” The Late Show host blasted the recent SCOTUS rulings Continue reading "Colbert Trashes Justice Kennedy: ‘Don’t Tell Me Your Mind’s Going… You Never Had One!’"

Colbert Fires Back At Trump For Attacks Against ‘That Guy on CBS’: ‘James Corden is Very Talented!’

Stephen Colbert had quite the reaction to President Trump after he blasted him and other late-night talk show hosts at a recent rally. Trump took a moment during the South Carolina rally Monday to blast “lost soul” Jimmy Fallon, “no talent” Jimmy Kimmel, as well as the “lowlife” Late Show host. Well, Colbert took exception to Trump’s assertion that the “guy on CBS” has “no talent.” “Hey, Mr. President. I will not stand here and let you talk that way about James Corden!” Colbert exclaimed. He is very talented! He sings! He dances! Have you seen his Carpool Karaoke with Paul McCartney?'” It didn’t take Colbert long to realize that Trump was referring to himself. “But I’ll say this: I think he called me ‘The guy on CBS’ because he’s afraid to say my name,” Colbert continued. “Yeah. This rally was in South Carolina… I Continue reading "Colbert Fires Back At Trump For Attacks Against ‘That Guy on CBS’: ‘James Corden is Very Talented!’"

Seth Rogen Says He Turned Down Paul Ryan’s Request For a Photo: I Told Him ‘No Way, Man!’

Seth Rogen dished about an awkward encounter he recently had with Speaker Paul Ryan. Rogen began by explaining out of nowhere, he received a phone call from Mitt Romney and invited the actor, who is an advocate for a cure to Alzheimer’s disease, to speak at a summit about brain health, which he agreed to attend. He told Stephen Colbert how almost all of the attendees were Republicans and during the event, two teenagers approached Rogen and asked to take a picture with him. But then he was “put into a pickle.” “They said, ‘Our dad wants to meet you.’ And I turn around and Paul Ryan was walking towards me,” Rogen said. “My whole body puckered, I tensed up. And I didn’t know what to do! And he came over, just grabbed my hand. And I’m just, like, ‘I’m shaking his hand, I don’t know what to do.

Don Lemon: Trump’s Immigration Stance Has ‘Everything To Do With Race’

CNN anchor Don Lemon expressed his thoughts on what was behind President Donald Trump‘s recent actions at the southern border. The conversation began when Stephen Colbert said that a “theme” with the Trump administration is using race “as a tool to divide people,” citing candidate Trump’s rhetoric about some illegal immigrants being “rapists,” the president’s “both sides” remarks after Charlottesville, and most recently his “zero tolerance” policy that separated undocumented families at the southern border as examples. “It has everything to do with race,” Don Lemon responded. “We were told or people would have you to believe that this was about economic anxiety. Every single study and survey shows that this was about people who are losing power and losing influence. It was about race, It was about not having the same level of influences they had and they were concerned about-” “They’re losing their privilege,” Colbert chimed in. Continue reading "Don Lemon: Trump’s Immigration Stance Has ‘Everything To Do With Race’"

Colbert Blasts Melania Trump’s ‘I Really Don’t Care’ Jacket: ‘That’s One Message She Didn’t Steal From Michelle Obama’

On Thursday night, Stephen Colbert went after First Lady Melania Trump for the jacket she wore on the way to visiting a detention center in Texas that was housing dozens of illegal immigrant children. Colbert began by telling his audience that the Trump administration sent their “most high profile detainee” to the southern border and mocked the question she gave at a listening session “How can I help?” “Ma’am, I know how you can help,” Colbert responded. “Unfortunately, it involves speaking to your husband, but desperate times call for desperate measures.” The Late Show host then showed a photo of the First Lady’s jacket, which read “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?” which he stressed was “real” and that his show “checked it so many times” because they thought it was fake. “That’s what they settled on?!?” Colbert reacted. “What was her first choice, a jacket Continue reading "Colbert Blasts Melania Trump’s ‘I Really Don’t Care’ Jacket: ‘That’s One Message She Didn’t Steal From Michelle Obama’"

Colbert: Trump ‘Folded Like an Origami Trump Casino’ Because 70% of People Were ‘Sick to Their Stomach’

Stephen Colbert mocked President Donald Trump for “folding” on his immigration policy that separated illegal immigrant families at the southern border. Colbert slammed the president for insisting last week that he couldn’t sign an executive order to stop the separation and that only Congress could do it, which was followed by an executive order that actually kept families together. “And just in time too. Melania was about to turn herself in to the border,” Colbert quipped. The Late Show host then blasted the “signing ceremony” because Trump “made it look like he did something good” instead of admitting to “ending the evil thing he started.” “None of these folks in the administration or anyone who defended them are off the moral meat hook here because they didn’t change this policy because they thought they were wrong. They changed it because it made 70% of Americans sick to their Continue reading "Colbert: Trump ‘Folded Like an Origami Trump Casino’ Because 70% of People Were ‘Sick to Their Stomach’"
