Stephen Colbert has no fear when it comes to Trump bashing. The Trump administration tried to silence Colbert, but it didn’t work. Donald recently called Colbert a “no-talent guy” with “filthy” humor. Colbert’s ratings say otherwise, and who is Donald calling filthy?
Colbert spoke to the audience while unveiling his show’s upcoming fall schedule. He reflected on what it’s been like hosting the show since Trump took office.
Colbert said, “It’s been a great year for Late Show. I could not have done it without a visionary leader, a legend of television who made the ‘Late Show’ what it is. Thank you, Donald Trump.”
Trump’s antics have singlehandedly provided all TV commentators with an endless supply of material and boosted their ratings.
Stephen added, “It is an honor every night to be on stage and talk about that day’s Trump scandal. Unfortunately, the hour I’m spending on stage often means I’m missing the breaking news of tomorrow’s Trump scandal. So by the time my monologue airs, I can sound as out-of-touch of what’s going on at the White House as Sean Spicer does. I don’t know if you have seen him lately…[but it] helps to have a pair of hedge trimmers around.”
Last week, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer hid from reporters in the bushes. Apparently, Spicer too frightened to give a response when asked about Comey’s firing.
Colbert continued, “I don’t know if you heard, but the president recently had some harsh things to say about me. He said my language is not appropriate for the ‘Late Show’ because kids are watching. Who says only old people watch CBS? Clearly, we’re number one in the coveted demo of six to twelve politically engaged insomniacs. There’s really only one word to describe this president, and the FCC has asked me not to use it anymore.”
He wrapped up with, “I understand if the president doesn’t particularly like my show. But thankfully, like his votes on election day, he is in the minority because right now the ‘Late Show’ is number one in late night. Today, you will learn about our exciting new fall lineup, unless the president has already leaked it to Russia.”
