John Oliver Booed on Colbert for Admitting Trump Could Be Re-Elected in 2020

Scott Kowalchyk/CBS

Before he makes his long-awaited return to HBO this coming Sunday, John Oliver kicked off the week on Monday with a sit-down with his old Daily Show colleague Stephen Colbert.

Asked if he’s “feeling good” with high confidence heading into the new season, Oliver laughed and replied, “Confidence high? No. My confidence is never high. Self-loathing high, concern astronomic.” When Colbert noted that Oliver is returning just after what could be the halfway point of Donald Trump’s presidency—saying, “the end is in sight”—he elaborated on those feelings.

“I definitely don’t have that kind of optimism. To say we’re halfway through his presidency I think is to ignore the concept of second term possibility. We are two to six years away from the end his presidency,” Oliver said. As audience members began to boo, he added, “Oh, wow. Are there some big Trump 2024 fans in here?”

Stephen Colbert slams Trump’s new favorite term ‘presidential harassment’

TwitterFacebook

Donald Trump has ramped up his use of a new, favorite term and Stephen Colbert wasted no time calling bullshit.

The Late Show host noted Trump’s use of the catchphrase “presidential harassment” to describe investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“Presidential harassment: It’s like sexual harassment, only the Republicans take it seriously,” Colbert said around the five-minute mark of Thursday’s monologue.

Colbert also noted Trump’s recent tweet reiterating the term, in which the president wrote, “The Republicans never did this to President Obama.”

“Have you been huffing the Aqua Net?” said Colbert. “We were all alive then, none of us were in a coma. All they did was investigate him — the IRS, the ATF, the ACA, Solyndra, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. They didn’t subpoena his taxes, can you guess why? Hint: He released them.Read more…

Stephen Colbert Mocks Trump’s Pre-Super Bowl Comments About Barron and Football

CBS

A special post-Super Bowl episode of The Late Show likely meant an unusually large viewership for Stephen Colbert Sunday night. But that didn’t mean the host was about to pull any of his usual punches against President Donald Trump.

Following an awkward cameo from Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi in the cold open, Colbert came out swinging in a monologue that took on the president’s pre-game interview with Face the Nation’s Margaret Brennan. He joked that the tradition “goes back to the very first Super Bowl, when Lyndon Johnson made the surprise announcement that he was sending both teams to Vietnam.”

During his CBS sit-down Trump said that he would have a “hard time” letting his son Barron play football. “He likes soccer,” the president said of his youngest. “A lot of people, including me, thought soccer would probably never make it in this country, but it really is moving forward rapidly.”

Stephen Colbert mocks Trump’s tweet about bringing back ‘global waming’

TwitterFacebook

Trump tweeted about global warming again.

On Monday night, the president said on Twitter that he wanted global warming wanted to “come back fast,” because of the freezing temperatures that have hit the midwest. Quick to correct him, and his spelling of “global waming,” however, was Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night.

“These temperatures are actually caused by global ‘waming’ sir. Polar vortex breaks up and dips out, it’s all predicted,” he said. “Besides, just because it’s cold now, it doesn’t mean climate change is a myth.”

Colbert turned the conversation to things that Trump wishes weren’t real, like the Mueller investigation, and a nervy Matthew Whitaker.  Read more…

Stephen Colbert Destroys Fox News’ Tucker Carlson: ‘The Little Racist Who Could’

CBS

Every once in a while Stephen Colbert does a segment on The Late Show that rivals the best of his work on The Colbert Report. Tonight was one of those nights.

With Fox News host Tucker Carlson under fire and losing advertisers after accusing immigrants of making America “poorer and dirtier and more divided” last week, Colbert sat down behind his desk for an old-school takedown. “Carlson’s already got a reputation for flirting with racism, but last week, he took it to a racy new level,” the host began.

After playing a brief clip of Carlson’s comments, the host said, “Now, if just listening to him say that makes you feel dirty and more divided, you’re not alone. Tucker got a lot of heat for those remarks, but he’s nothing if not the little racist who could. And he came chuggin’ back up that hill on Monday with a new reason he doesn’t like immigrants: He just cares so darn much about the environment.”

Stephen Colbert Mocks Trump’s ‘Desperate’ Chief of Staff Search

We weren’t supposed to know about John Kelly’s departure as President Trump’s chief of staff until Monday. As The New York Times reported over the weekend, Trump agreed to let Kelly made the announcement on his own terms. But then before he could do it, the president blurted out the decision to reporters on Saturday.

Imitating Trump, Stephen Colbert said in his Late Show monologue Monday night, “I would like to humbly announce that it was me who dumped him. No matter what he tells you, that’s what happened. I’m the one who said we should see other presidents, OK? I just wasn’t that into him.”

Of course, Trump thought he had a replacement for Kelly lined up in the vice president’s chief of staff, or as Colbert referred to him, “bro who’s not going to let those nerds hold a luau on campus while he’s president of Sigma Phi Epsilon, Nick Ayers.”

Of Course Stephen Colbert Has Plenty of Jokes About Trump at Bush’s Funeral

President Donald Trump attended the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush on Wednesday, and of course, Stephen Colbert, found the humor. “They even assured him that the choir would drown out the sound of other ex-presidents rolling in their graves,” Colbert joked in his monologue on Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Show.

The late-night host pointed out that not insulting Trump was nearly impossible by virtue of comparison, like when Bush’s biographer Jon Meacham said in his eulogy that Bush “life code was: tell the truth; don’t blame people.” Colbert wondered if that was already bending the rules. “As soon as you start praising someone’s honesty, you’re automatically throwing shade at Donald Trump. I mean, Obama made Trump seem like a bad president just by sitting next to him.”

Speaking of former President Barack Obama, Colbert said, “It was quite a moving sight to see the presidents and the first ladies in the front row, waiting to honor President Bush, chatting comfortably with one another,” Colbert said. “Until Trump showed up, and then it became silent-staring time. Donald Trump is the only person in the world who can bring down a funeral.”

Jon Stewart Turns the Tables on Stephen Colbert: ‘Donald Trump, Great President or Greatest President?’

Three years into his stint hosting The Late Show, Stephen Colbert is finally starting to feel “a little bit like Jon Stewart.”

For a change of pace Tuesday night, CBS aired a pre-taped episode of the late-night show in which the tables were turned as Colbert sat in the guest chair and took questions from friends like Jake Tapper, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Kerry Washington, Charlamagne tha God and most significantly, his former boss at The Daily Show.

Stewart began his interview by asking Colbert, “Who the hell do you think you are?” That prompted the host’s admission that he is beginning to feel like he is able to pick up Stewart’s mantle as the most trusted man in political comedy.

Stephen Colbert Explains Why He Wants Trump to Run for President Again in 2020

Scott Kowalchyk/CBS

Last year, Joe Scarborough went on The Late Show to declare his independence from the Republican Party (after hyping Trump for most of the campaign). This week, he urged voters to put a check on Donald Trump in the midterm elections.

Discussing the president’s unconscionable response to the apparent murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, Scarborough’s Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski said, “That can’t be our reality, and at some point this has to end one way or another.”

“You know a great way for it to end is for everybody to get out that gives a damn about this republic and, 19 days from now, go out and vote,” Scarborough said. “Whether you’re a Republican, whether you’re a Democrat, whether you’re an independent, you have to agree that Donald Trump needs to be checked.” Without exactly spelling it out for viewers, he was telling them to vote for Democrats who will be that check, adding, “This is the most important election of our lives.”

Stephen Colbert doesn’t think much of Trump’s ‘natural instinct for science’

TwitterFacebook

Despite his resistance to believing climate change is manmade, which is in opposition to his scientists’ beliefs, Donald Trump told the Associated Press yesterday that he has a “natural instinct for science.”

It’s because of the president’s uncle, MIT professor Dr. John Trump, who it turns out he didn’t talk to “about this particular subject.”

“Why did you bring up your science uncle if you’ve never talked to him about science?” Colbert asked on The Late Show Wednesday night.

“And second, you have a natural instinct for science? That’s not how knowledge works. You don’t inherit it from your uncle. The most you get from your uncle is your own nose back,” he joked. Read more…

“Well, after years of mocking Elizabeth Warren, clearly the president must have had a lot to say about these test results,” the Late Show host said of the Democratic senator’s decision to put out confirmation that she does, in fact, have some Native American ancestry. And yet, asked by reporters for his response, Trump replied, “Who cares?”

“You care!” Colbert told the president. “You’re literally the only person who cares.”

Stephen Colbert Made a Musical Kavanaugh Parody

Stephen Colbert had jokes after a former classmate alleged that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh got into a bar fight after attending a UB40 concert in 1985, while he was a student at Yale University.

In a clip aired on Tuesday night, Colbert and the Late Show team parodied UB40’s hit, “Red Red Wine,” with lyrics that reference the controversy surrounding allegations of drunken behavior, along with interpolated clips of Kavanaugh’s testimony in the song.

The song comes after Monday’s reports that inspired the parody; according to a report by the New York Times, the fight allegedly started when Kavanaugh and friends thought they spotted the lead singer of UB40 at a bar, a misunderstanding that escalated.

For their part, UB40 seems to want no part in the Kavanaugh drama, taking to their Twitter to address the renewed focus on their band.

Watch the full clip of the Kavanaugh “Red Red Wine” parody below.
