Colbert GIVES UP on Comedy: Trump Is a ‘Stain,’ ‘Abomination’


Stephen Colbert has given up on comedy. The Late Show host on Tuesday went live for a post-debate rant against Donald Trump as an “abomination” and “stain” on humanity. He also made an appalling Nazi smear against GOP supporters. In other words, Colbert’s message to half the country? Don’t watch my show. 

Talking to Senator Cory Booker, the frustrated host sputtered non-questions such as this: “Donald Trump is an abomination. He is a stain on the office of the presidency and his behavior, and I saw that in Vice President Biden’s face.” 

 

 

He sympathized with poor Biden at the debate: “I saw the same pain we’re talking about…. I imagine that it comes from a particularly special place for him, not just because of his natural empathy to understand what the American people are going through.” 

The classless Colbert used his opening “monologue” to make a Nazi joke about Republican poll watchers: 

STEPHEN COLBERT: When Chris Wallace asked Trump if he would call on his voters to stay calm, instead trump made a frightening call to his followers. 

DONALD TRUMP: I’m urging my supporters to go into the polls and watch very carefully. 

COLBERT [Doing Trump voice]: “Maybe go hang out there wearing your favorite brown shirt and just, you know, S.S. the situation.” 

How unhinged is Colbert? He lashed out at The New York Times for being too fair. 

The New York Times predicted a clash of style and ideas [at the debate]. No, bad, New York Times, bad! Stop pretending that any of this is normal. They’re not equivalent candidates. You don’t see a guy trying to take a Molotov cocktail away from a baby and say, “That’s a real clash of style and ideas.”

On August 21, the Late Show host endorsed the “decent,” “honest” Biden.

STEPHEN COLBERT: Let’s get to the coverage. Going into tonight’s debate, anticipation was a-bub Lin’. The New York Times predicted a clash of style and ideas. No, bad, New York Times, bad! Stop pretending that any of this is normal. They’re not equivalent candidates. You don’t see a guy trying to take a Molotov cocktail away from a baby and say, “That’s a real clash of style and ideas.”

COLBERT: Chris Wallace opened by laying out the rules for the sparse audience. 

CHRIS WALLACE: The audience here in the hall has promised to remain silent. 

COLBERT: And not just the Republicans who have been cowards for the past four years. 

… 

COLBERT:  We already know the big rallies are bad, Chris. This is like asking, “Mr. President, you’re tying ladies to the railroad tracks as the choo-choo trains are coming. Mr. Biden, why did you go with the strategy not killing your supporters?” 

COLBERT: Then Joe, he just got fed up. 

BIDEN: You are the worst president America has ever had. 

COLBERT: Come on now, Mr. Vice president. That’s not fair. He’s also the worst president America will ever have. 

COLBERT: When Chris Wallace asked Trump if he would call on his voters to stay calm, instead trump made a frightening call to his followers. 

DONALD TRUMP: I’m urging my supporters to go into the polls and watch very carefully. 

COLBERT [Doing Trump voice]: “Maybe go hang out there wearing your favorite brown shirt and just, you know, S.S. the situation.” 

COLBERT: I saw what you were describing in Vice President Biden’s face. I saw– I saw the same pain we’re talking about. But I think– I imagine that it comes from a particularly special place for him, not just because of his natural empathy to understand what the American people are going through and what they want from a leader right now, and I think that is that sincere desire in the vice president to fulfill that need for the American people, to be a– a moral example for the nation, as FDR called the presidency, essentially a moral office. But I pain I saw on his face was knowing what a president can be like and feel this pain for what he sees our president being right now– a pain for America. Like, it must be heartbreaking for him to– to have the presidency and a relationship with the president not be a theory, to know what that person can be. I don’t mean just Barack Obama. I mean people that Joe Biden didn’t support, but Donald Trump is an abomination. He is a stain on the office of the presidency and his behavior, and I saw that in Vice President Biden’s face.
