WELCOME ONE AND ALL TO “THE LATE
SHOW.” I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
YOU KNOW, WE HAVE PASSED CERTAIN MILESTONES ON TRUMP’S HIGHWAY TO
AMERICAN GREATNESS. ( LAUGHTER )
SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO PULL THE CAR OVER, GET A BREATH OF
FRESH AIR, MAYBE PUKE IN THE GRASS. ( LAUGHTER )
TODAY IS ONE SUCH DAY, BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED
STATES HAS ORDERED THE PEOPLE INVESTIGATING HIM TO INVESTIGATE
THEIR INVESTIGATION OF HIM ( LAUGHTER )
YESTERDAY, DONALD TRUMP SUMMONED DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL ROD
ROSENSTEIN AND F.B.I. DIRECTOR CHRISTOPHER WRAY TO THE WHITE
HOUSE “TO PRESSURE THEM TO TURN OVER TO CONGRESS INFORMATION
ABOUT THE ORIGINS OF THE F.B.I. INVESTIGATION INTO HIS OWN
CAMPAIGN.” TO CATCH THE CRIMINAL, HE MUST
BECOME THE CRIMINAL. ( LAUGHTER )
OH, SO HE’S THE CRIMINAL? WELL, WE’RE DONE HERE. SOME PEOPLE ARE CALLING THIS A
CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS, BUT I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THAT. A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS REQUIRES
ONE BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT TO PUSH BACK AGAINST ANOTHER BRANCH
OF GOVERNMENT. EVERYBODY HERE IS PUSHING IN THE
SAME DIRECTION, AND IT’S DOWN WITH A PILLOW OVER THE
CONSTITUTION’S FACE GOING, “”SHHH. IT WILL BE OVER SOON.” IT’S GOTTEN SO BAD, THE OPENING
WORDS HAVE GONE FROM “WE THE PEOPLE” TO “HELP, I FORGOT THE
SAFE WORD!” ( LAUGHTER )
SO HOW DID WE GET HERE? COME WITH ME NOW BACK TO MAY OF
2016. IT WAS A HAPPIER TIME, THOUGH
WE SHOULD HAVE SEEN A WARNING THAT THE TWO BIGGEST MOVIES WERE
“CIVIL WAR” AND “APOCALYPSE.” ( LAUGHTER )
THE F.B.I. WERE YET TO LAUNCH AN INVESTIGATION OF THE TRUMP
CAMPAIGN’S TIES TO RUSSIA. ENTER TRUMP CAMPAIGN AIDE AND
DAUGHTER’S BOYFRIEND GIVING YOU A FIST BUMP, GEORGE
PAPADOPOULOS, WHO “GOT DRUNK IN MAY OF 2016 AND TOLD AN
AUSTRALIAN DIPLOMAT THE RUSSIANS HAD DIRT ON HILLARY CLINTON.” THAT’S THE NEW MOST INTERESTING
MAN IN THE WORLD. “I DON’T ALWAYS DRINK BEER, BUT
WHEN I DO, I BRAG TO STRANGERS ABOUT TREASON. ( LAUGHTER )
STAY GUILTY, MY FRIENDS.” NOW, THE F.B.I. DOESN’T WANT TO
RISK IT GETTING OUT THERE THAT THEY WERE INVESTIGATING A
PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN, SO TO KEEP IT ON THE D.L., THEY GOT AN
AMERICAN WORKING AT A BRITISH UNIVERSITY TO GET CLOSE TO
PAPADOPOULOS AND FIND OUT WHAT HE KNEW, UNDER THE PRETENSE OF
OFFERING HIM $3,000 TO WRITE A RESEARCH PAPER. I BELIEVE THAT PAPER WAS “HOW I
COLLUDED ON MY SUMMER VACATION.” ( LAUGHTER )
RUMOR OF THIS INFORMANT SPREAD IN WASHINGTON JUST THIS LAST
WEEK, WHICH LED TRUMP TO TWEET, “REPORTS ARE THERE WAS, INDEED,
AT LEAST ONE F.B.I. REPRESENTATIVE IMPLANTED, FOR
POLITICAL PURPOSES, INTO MY CAMPAIGN FOR PRESIDENT. IT TOOK PLACE VERY EARLY ON,
LONG BEFORE THE PHONY RUSSIA HOAX BECAME A HOT FAKE NEWS
STORY. IF TRUE, ALL TIME BIGGEST
POLITICAL SCANDAL!” “THAT’S RIGHT. I DID IT, FOLKS. I BROKE THE SCANDAL RECORD. TAKE THAT, NIXON. WHO’S GOT THE TRICKY DICK NOW?”
AND TRUMP DOUBLED DOWN JUST THIS AFTERNOON.>>A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SAYING
THEY HAD SPIES IN MY CAMPAIGN. IF THEY HAD SPIES IN MY
CAMPAIGN, THAT WOULD BE A DISGRACE TO THIS COUNTRY. THAT WOULD BE ONE OF THE BIGGEST
INSULTS THAT ANYONE HAS EVER SEEN, AND IT WOULD BE VERY
ILLEGAL, ASIDE FROM EVERYTHING ELSE. IT WOULD MAKE PROBABLY EVERY
POLITICAL EVENT EVER LOOK LIKE SMALL POTATOES.>>Stephen: MAYBE, IF YOU DIDN’T
COLLUDE. IF YOU DID COLLUDE, WELL, THAT’S
A PRETTY BIG POTATO. ( LAUGHTER )
SO, TRUMP SUMMONS ROSENSTEIN AND WRAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND
SAYS, “YOU’VE GOT NOTHING. CAN I SEE WHAT YOU GOT?”
AND HERE’S THE THING. THEY’RE GOING TO DO IT. THEY’RE GOING TO SHOW THE
EVIDENCE TO CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS, AND NO DEMOCRATS. BUT IT’S NOT POLITICAL. IT’S ALL PERFECTLY INNOCENT,
ACCORDING TO TRUMP LAWYER AND MAN SEEING THE EVIDENCE AGAINST
DONALD TRUMP, RUDY GIULIANI. RUDY SAYS– RUDY SAYS THAT
TRUMP, THE TARGET OF THE INVESTIGATION DIDN’T CALL THE
MEETING. HE CALLED THE MEETING IN HIS
OFFICIAL CAPACITY AS PRESIDENT. YES, DONALD TRUMP IS KIND OF
WEARING TWO HATS IN THIS INVESTIGATION. ONE IS PRESIDENT, AND THE OTHER
IS CRIMINAL. AND I BELIEVE WE HAVE FOOTAGE OF
THOSE TWO HATS.

    So now we let the criminal see the evidence that they have on him before he's even interviewed.  We never let the criminal see that first.

    Yep, the constitution is being systematically dismantled – but let's be honest here. It started with Reagan, continued with Bush Sr. AND Clinton AND Bush Jr. AND Obama. Like Jimmy Dore always says – Trump just puts the ugly face on things that have been happening for a LONG time.

    TPOTUS has ordered to investigate his investigation about him, there is the loophole, The People has no really control over their own employee: The US Gov. that's should be fixed, stablish a mechanism that when The People asks for investigation, the US Gov will have NO POWER OVER IT, when The People mandates or makes a requirement is the Gov to assess the situation and report back to their Boss, The People and The People will give the GO, if and only if it sees it as good, The Military The Police, The US Gov is there to administrate not to rule/reign as a monarchy over The People, but the opposite

  • 666juba Post author

    The republicans are cowards like their boss. Abuse of power is their favourite bullying method right now but threat, bribes and corruption in general are always used by them. A New York crime family is the rulers of the USA and the republicans acting as their street thugs. Now they are all scrambling to save their ass from being prosecuted. All thank's to their very brave and stable genius draft dodger boss. They obey the orange slime in the White House. Not the constitution and the law of the USA. The truth and nothing but the truth a line that has been totally soiled by the Orange slime and his helpers. No man is above the law except the Godfather of the republicans. Shame on the Republicans! VOTE THEM OUT!!!!!!!

  • ?? Post author

    Late night shows were for entertainment, now its communist propaganda. Sad so many Americans are too dumb to understand. Dems started this fake investigation to hide their crimes.

    Why is Colbert’s Donald Trump impression adorable?

  • Fay Ryuujin Post author

    how the FUCK can anyone still support trump?!

  • Shahid Khan Post author

    The Republicans will still win in the mid terms because Democrats are too lazy to get out and vote. I'm amazed how stupid Democratic voters are, they have two choices. Either a centre right but sensible party (Democrats) or a hard right christian fundamentalist white supremacist party. Democrat voters thinks: Hmm. It's a really tough choice. Hmm. I'll stay at home. It makes no difference.

    When are Democrats going to take action to get this guy out of office and into a prison cell??

  • MrMaenambeach Post author

    I think Trump will win a second term. He comes across as an idiot but there is some deep seated criminal genius to what he is doing. He is a gangster in the land of what used to be gentlemanly disagreement. All of the republicans suck his cock now. "Little Marco", licks the jizz off his chin in hopes of votes from the most vile people in America. At least Paul Ryan was brave enough to just be a coward and run away. Trump may well do away with term limits. Any election he loses will be fake. He said that before he won the last one. America as it was known in the past is dead. America has no allies. No one respects it anymore. So sad.

    Love this show 😂😂😂

  • DargorV Post author

    Trump (and his flock of idiotic followers) are draggong America's name right thro the mud. Its SAD to watch from the outside and us the rest of the world are wondering, what the hell are you waiting for to grab that ugly man-child and throw him out of your white house?

  • Meg DiPaolo Post author

    Trump, you’re the biggest disgrace to this country, and one of the biggest insults to democracy the world has ever seen.

  • Where Is Post author

    Colbert isn't the funny one- his fans are! Look how totally delusional and brainwashed they are! LOL! Hillary is criminal white trash, people! I know that y'all are slow and everything, so maybe if you watch "The Clinton Chronicles" and "Banished" posted by Danney Williams, both on YouTube, it'll help you a bit. You're pathetic. You eat up any garbage and call it truth. Wake up and grow up. You've been duped.

    Stephen Colbert, Michelle Wolf, Seth Meyers- they all have the dumbest fan base on the planet. Go watch "The Clinton Chronicles" and "Banished," posted by Danney Williams, both on YouTube. You all are so dumb that it's halfway into 2018 and you still can't figure out the real reasons why millions of people refused to vote for Clinton. Wake up.

  • Ben Arnona Post author

    Not to mention didn't trump himself say, and I quote "spying on your political rivals was done all the time, and totally not in anyway illegal?" Everyone else not stupid enough to actually fanatically believe everything out of his mouth remembers when he said that regarding the collusion allegations about the trump tower meeting with russion oligarchs to discuss getting dirt on hillary that he did not even confirm existed right?

  • Ben Arnona Post author

    To paraphrase a quote one of the greatest saturday morning cartoon villains of all time that isn't our cartoonishly tyrannical president Galvatron, and I paraphrase this quote thusly, "trump as president?! Really trump?!" "This is bad comedy!!" Picture Galvatron saying that with good ol Leanord Nimoy's voice. Our fore fathers would be rolling in their graves if they could see us now.

  • lushin burl Post author

    nazis killed millions of jews and took the guns. We want you to buy guns and didnt kill anyone. Your ignorant nazi comment show's how much you dont know and shows you have no respect for the millions of jews who were killed. Tell a polish ild man or women what you say here. They will either cry or attack you. Your comment also shows you never researched JFK , secret societies, Soros , agenda 21, the banks of the world 30,000 guiltiens , or 6 man caskets, Everyone acts like jfk is a liar and cant see Trump fixing what jfk wanted to before he was shot. Do you know they projected america to not have any poor by 1990. Ya your leftist evil dems have stilen all that extra money and after that enslaved the poor and blacks again. While you sit here and try to defend them, they are raping and drinking children's blood. How does it feel to help know child abusers , rapist, and just plain evil. Look up that stuff and stop being brainwashed.

  • Al Loomis Post author

    feel free to denigrate trump, if it makes you feel better. but think a minute- he got to be president, with no more than the usual smoke and mirrors. when you play by the rules, and get this result- isn't it time to change the rules? the constitution was written to empower the rich, and that is what it does, since 1787. trump is rich, so he is entitled to throw his weight around, it's legal. i recommend democracy: find out what it is, and get it, if you can.

  • H Chahal Post author

    If there are no spies that were implanted during his 2016 campaign for President then pretty much he would be a great disgrace to the country and the investigation into the Russian collusion should continue. 😋😋

    the people of the usa tolerate rule by politician, instead of democracy. the politician caste is as crooked and useless as the nobles of louis 16, the people of usa alienated, cynical and profoundly ignorant. and what passes for political discussion happens on stage with a comedian.

  • bsrcat1 Post author

    Any idiot lawyer would be able to change the "of those present" to view/tamper with the evidence, to the president, the majority and minority leaders from both the house and senate. This makes as much sense as R. Kelly, sitting as judge at his own trial and only him and his 16yo girlfriend are permitted to watch the tape of him peeing on an underaged girl.
    Is America great again? I can't tell. It looks a lot like a bag of hypocrisy slathered in corruption.
