    when Obama comes to speak the crowd cheers sincerely . Trumps base crowds are bobbing heads told to cheer or get removed . Do these people pay or donate to get in ?

    Man that plaid shirt guy mirrors my expressions when I heard Trump speak for the first time. Well, atleast now I know how Trumpists must feel when Obama speaks and they cannot understand a word or make head or tail out of it.

  • Wrong Turn

    Obama was a good POTUS for America and I agree that he deserved a break after the harrowing 8 years in WH. But man, all this time you remain silent with only one statement about dreamers. Now you resurface near election time? I know that progressives need to be reminded to vote in 2016 because many progressives and nearly half the millennials don't plan to vote. I am not criticizing you for appearing. I am criticizing you for not appearing sooner.
    You should have issued more statements from time to time, IMO. As should have Hillary who surfaces only to whine about how misogyny made her lose 2016 elections. I know it was hard on you two but it was hard on all of reasonable America, too - still is. And we didn't get to take a break. I know that you guys are probably not gonna run again (Obama can't, Hillary may not) but that is why you should give a coherent voice to the reasonable half of the people. That's how we know that at least someone is standing with the people on principle and not for votes alone.
    That would also give direction to the Dems who seem to be scared at times to say anything because they might lose office. So things that need to be said but people in the office don't say them for the love of their office, you should be giving voice to them. I know these expectations are a lot. But if you are a great President, there will be great expectations of you - always.
    All that aside, It was nice to hear a reasonable person speak again to confirm I am not losing my marbles. Trumpp's speeches really make me dumber with every semblance of a word.
    As for your pauses - that is just proof that you think before you speak. Current POTUS wouldn't know that because it hates thinking more than salad or exercise.

    Obama was big on pro-American rhetoric . Ever read what he really thought ? If it were made public in 2007 he wouldn’t have been elected President . In fact he probably wouldn’t have won the Democrat nomination . This “car salesman” from Chicago really knows how to talk , I’ll give him that .

    Colbert is just a brown nose spokesperson for the looser liberal left. Trump derangement syndrome is real and on display from this fool on a nightly basis (a clear pattern of derangement). Such disinformation from his lack of integrity of reporting factual truth with obvious nonsense.

      After Franklin Roosevelt was voted in for his fourth term (he died in 1945, which was his 13th year as president), there was a new law passed that limited presidential terms to two-not just two consecutive, but two total.

    Why go after Trump? It's not his administration who illegally invaded Iraq and killed a million people, is it? But because the media helped sell that war they want you to NOT focus on arresting Bush and instead trot out porn stars and fake idiots to distract. Oh, and Colbert taking part in this crap shows what a sellout loser he is.

      Actually he did not win the Popular Vote. He won because of the Electoral College. And even if he had won the Popular Vote, the audience wouldn't be full of people who voted for him. You might want to get your facts straight next time you want to make an uninformed comment.

    Doesn't everyone readily see that the way Donnie talks with his moments of incoherent speech, problems forming words, mumbling, etc., is 100% IDENTICAL to how small children talk, typically age 6 or less. Seriously. Among the reasons are attention span deficit, wandering thoughts, unfamiliar with words, and a limited overall vocabulary. Functionally, emotionally, and intellectually, Donnie is somewhere between the ages of 4 and 6. Essentially, Donnie is STUPID! This is not intended as a joke. He is both illiterate and profoundly STUPID!!

    The more the elite pour hundreds of thousands of migrants into our cities, millions into our countries already overpopulated, the more I ask myself why?
    Some of these elite believe the earth is overpopulated with us (not them) and should be culled by 95% of us (not them).
    Muslim people pouring into our countries have many more children than those of us who belong here so what purpose is this migration to us, the world, what is the next stage of this new world?
    Are we to kill each other as we cannot live in a multiculturalist one world communist utopia that has never worked in the past
    Or are we to suffer a virus, a bacteria into an overpopulated area of these ghettos they are making in our once beautiful cities?
    Maybe we are we to be ruled by those few with money as serfs on the treadmills of their one colour, one religion, low educated masses of none complaining humanity?
    Will this elite remove 95% of the world population? or use us as automatons?
