  • Colbert Cartoon Crumbles Truth

    If you're a liberal, what's more fun than watching the liberal press trash conservatives seven days a week? How about watching the entertainment media mock conservatives for complaining about all this abuse? CBS-owned Showtime has created a Trump-blasting animated series called "Our Cartoon President," reminiscent of that George W. Bush-bashing "Lil' Bush" series that Comedy Central made while Bush was in office. Can you imagine Showtime having aired a president-mocking cartoon while Bill Clinton or Barack Obama were in office? How about one about President Hillary? They wouldn't dare. Showtime thinks it's funny to claim that conservatives say they are...

    The way actress Julianna Margulies tells her story, she’s probably lucky she didn’t wind up in an ER. The former “ER” star told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert on Monday night that for a while she would wake up “screaming” from nightmares after Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016. Margulies recalled one dream in particular, according to the Washington Examiner. “I was in a boardroom, there was a long table, and it was just a guy who's in the Oval Office right now, sitting there and I walked in and I [was] screaming, screaming. ... I mean I was...

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert fantasized about “wringing the neck” of William Barr, accusing the attorney general of spreading a “bucket of lies” about the findings of Robert Mueller’s report into supposed Russian collusion.

I'm not gonna forget': Meghan McCain blasts Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner for attending her father's funeral The View co-host appeared on Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday Said she was shocked when Jared and Ivanka attended John McCain's funeral I thought that my family had made it clear, or at least I had, that the Trumps are unwelcome around me, and that my father had been sort of very clear about the line between the McCains and the Trumps,' she told Colbert.

    Meghan McCain didn’t know that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner would attend her father’s funeral — and she wishes they hadn’t. “It made me uncomfortable,” McCain told Stephen Colbert when she was a guest on “The Late Show” Thursday night. “And I hope I made them uncomfortable, honestly.” McCain, a co-host of “The View,” also said that she is very much a conservative — but that if former Vice President Joe Biden runs for president and gets the Democratic nomination, “I’m going to have to quit television because I can’t say anything bad about him.”

    Earlier this week, the federal government’s National Science Foundation, an entity created to encourage the study of science — encouragement that it achieves by awarding grants to scholars and universities — announced that it had awarded a grant to study what people say about themselves and others in social media. The NSF dubbed the project Truthy, a reference to comedian Stephen Colbert’s invention and hilarious use of the word “truthiness.” The reference to Colbert is cute, and he is a very funny guy, but when the feds get into the business of monitoring speech, it is surely no joke; it...

    Well, this sounds interesting and probably sinister and open to manipulation: The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter. The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online. The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.” The university has received $919,917 so far for the project. “The project stands...

    Did you hear the one about President Trump? Or, more precisely, did you hear all 3,128 jokes? A think tank that has studied the content of late-night comedy for the past 26 years said Donald Trump was the butt of more jokes in 2017 than any other public figure has for a single year. By a lot. He beat the previous record of 1,816, set by Trump as a presidential candidate in 2016, said the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University in a study released Friday. Prior to that, the record was 1,717 by former President...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made yet another bold prediction in the days leading up to the midterm elections—Democrats “will win” the House. Pelosi, D-Calif., who is hoping to take back the gavel and assume her former position as House speaker, has projected confidence for months about her party's chances of regaining the majority. But in her latest comments, she predicted victory, with no caveats, while suggesting Democrats could even take the Senate -- though recent polling still reflects a GOP advantage in the upper chamber. “Let me say this. Up until today, I would’ve said, ‘If the election were...

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert described President Donald Trump’s jokes about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a “racist tirade” amid the ongoing drama over her supposed American Indian ancestry. On Tuesday, Warren released test results indicating that she had a maximum of 1.6 percent “Mesoamerican” heritage, which is far below the minimum requirement to claim membership of most Native American tribes. “After years of mocking Elizabeth Warren, clearly the President must have had a lot to say about these test results,” Colbert said, before playing a clip of Trump saying he did not care about the test results. “You care!...

    Washington Post ^ | August 31, 2013 | Steven Zeitchik
    [snip] A year and a half into the Trump presidency, entertainment companies are grappling with a fan base that is splintering into political factions as never before. Whether in regard to explicitly political entertainment or the rapidly multiplying number of entertainers who talk about politics, Americans appear to be increasingly figuring ideology into their Hollywood ­choices. Some fans, to be sure, have long been drawn to or repelled by the occasional outspoken celebrity — Jane Fonda for her antiwar views, for example. But fans are now judging a much wider range of entertainment and entertainers for the way those people...

    The latest line of attack from liberals against Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, is knocking the judge for his “frat boy”-sounding first name. “We'll be DAMNED if we're going to let five MEN—including some frat boy named Brett—strip us of our hard-won bodily autonomy and reproductive rights,” the influential pro-choice organization NARAL tweeted Tuesday. Comedian Stephen Colbert of CBS’ “The Late Show” also mocked Kavanaugh’s name. “Now I don’t know much about Kavanaugh, but I’m skeptical because his name is Brett,” Colbert said during the monologue on his show Tuesday. “That sounds less like a Supreme...

    CBS late-night host Stephen Colbert grilled former President Clinton on Tuesday about his recent comments about Monica Lewinsky and the #MeToo movement. Colbert asked Clinton why he appeared surprised by questions about the Lewinsky affair during a recent interview, claiming that the incident was the most famous example of workplace sexual misconduct. "You seemed surprised that that question would come up," he asked on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert." "That somehow, this had all been adjudicated in the past and that there was no reason to talk about it again, when it seems that the spirit of the #MeToo...
  • Vanity - Late night TV ain't what it used to be.

    "Deadline Hollywood" tells us that Stephen Colbert bested Fallon & Kimmel with his interview last evening with James Comey. They give us the percentages...but, no number of viewers. Why? Simply because there are not enough TV late night viewers tuning in to these failed shows, to talk about. Shucks, Johnny Carson used to get 9,000,000 viewers a night and once drew 17,000,000 folks watching. Even though the USA population has increased to over 330,000,000 million people,,,they just ain't watching Colbert, Fallon or Kimmel. I suspect Colbert, maybe got 3,000,000, viewers...that's one percent of the USA population. Fact is, with two...

    The ABC/Stephanopoulos/Comey interview failed and only about a paltry,3% of Americans tuned in. They say history repeats itself. If that is true, which I believe it is...tonight should be another repeat of Comey, interview failure. Tonight, James Comey blesses The CBS Late Show, hosted by Stephen Colbert. I suspect, the dialogue and presentation will be just as boring as the ABC farce, an insult to one's intelligence, and full of both Comey & Colbert ranting, raving, babbling nonsense & lies, with no meaningful, substance whatsoever. Who knows...maybe Colbert/Comey will attract 40-50 million TV viewers, I doubt it, but whatever happens...

    On Easter Sunday, Stephen Colbert’s anti-Trump animated cartoon show on Showtime, Our Cartoon President portrays President Trump as desperate to increase his waning support from evangelical voters. In “Church and State” he is caught on an open mic saying to Vice President Mike Pence that he would "cut off God’s penis” if his wife were to become pregnant as Joseph’s wife, the Virgin Mary, did. He also mocks the faith of Christians, wondering, "How do grown adults still worship Jesus?"
