    Trump: " I am proud to shutdown the government."
    32% of America: " It's because of the Democrats."
    Me: πŸ€” Trump β„’+ border wall = free publicity

    17,000! Wow seems like border security did a pretty good job >> so where is the need for wall?

      Oh and to further I was turned away from Texas (yeah, I know, my bad) because the border officer said β€œyou don’t have enough money for a six month holiday because I don’t have enough money for a six month holiday” and yes don’t worry about Mexicans, watch out for all those illegal Australians.. also don’t worry about confirming that statement with my online banking app.

    I know this has been said before but for GODS SAKE shut the band leader up! Does Colbert owe him money or something? Why dont they tell him to shut up?
    And this is only because of his incoherent utterances. Not because jazz is shit. Although that doesnt help.

    Trump, once again more than likely unknowingly has put himself in another legal investigation if anyone bothers to read the US Patriot Act of 2001: Section 802: Definition of a Domestic Terrorist, which states:

    (a) DOMESTIC TERRORISM DEFINED- Section 2331 of title 18, United States Code, --

    the term `domestic terrorism' means activities that--
    `(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;
    `(B) appear to be intended--
    (`(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
    (`(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion;)
    `(iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and

    `(C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.'.
    So even if he is never tried for anything else, he could always be tried for Violating this law signed by his Republican predecessor on October 26th, 2001.
    If anyone bothered to actually read any of it, for that matter.

      to take it even further, this schmuck cares nothing for anyone but himself.
      he claims the majority of those furloughed by the shutdown are democrats which is total and complete horseshit
      the shutdown affects everyone, directly and indirectly. The ones who will suffer the most are those furloughed who cannot pay their bills and then they have something else to deal with
      let alone the fact the number of those furloughed who cannot pay their car, mortgage, or student loan payments. Then they would be at risk of losing their home, their car, and what little of a tax refund they may have. Because of not paying their student loans when the student loan companies take it from them.
      Again, all because a selfish piece of shit and a completely inconsiderate human being, let alone a sorry excuse of a President wanted to be a dick towards democrats; thinking his base would support him regardless
      What an ass!

    They like power and power. Now they found a powerful one by birth and libs can’t stop their tantrums.

    Trump would never ask Shark Tank to pay for the wall. It’s middle-class and working poor tax payers who will pay for any wall he makes. Rich .. they aren’t going to pay for squat.

  • Stoney Lonsome
    Stoney Lonsome 7 days ago

    Stephen makes some good points but, it's pointless in the current partisan environment to be honest. No matter what he says or how many stats and facts he has to back it up 90% of those who think differently will never hear it because everyone stays exclusively inside their partisan bubble getting feedback inside a closed loop specifically catered to what they already want to believe. News no longer informs it just reinforces whatever the current zeitgeist is within your respective bubble. And even if they did hear it, they wouldn't believe it- truth like fact gets lost inside all the partisan noise and becomes almost impossible to discern. is this valid information you're being presented or just more partisan bullshit? You really don't know until you go find out for yourself, and then you have to sort through thousands of sources, trying to find one that's truly unbiased and credible- it's a freakin nightmare. Even for someone willing to put in the work , someone with enough intelligence to sort through all the partisan noise and different groups with different agendas, it's fucking crazy.

    I'm conflicted. Greg Gutfeld's political satire is funnier than Colbert's but when Stephen sticks to entertainment he has more interesting guests. Do I watch a news commentary show to get entertainment or a late night entertainment show to get political commentary??? I guess I just long for the days when a late night show's monologue might have a weekly political snipe rather than a daily diatribe.

    Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, and anyone closely related to the daily
    show and its producers, are beneficiaries of The Democracy Alliance, the
    premiere dark money network of partisan, left wing billionaires.
    They've been having dinners with them over the years, with no problem.
    Check for yourself, these folks are up to their eyes in corruption- this
    very same Dark Money group funds just as many Superpacs, PR firms,
    Think Tanks, and NGOs as the equally evil Koch Brothers foundation.
