Last quote by Stephen Colbert

Apparently, over the summer, Donald Trump met with top military officials and said he wanted a nearly tenfold increase in the nuclear arsenal. A tenfold increase? Excuse me while I unfold into the fetal position. He knows we can already end all life on Earth, right? The cockroaches will survive, which is good news for Steve

Oct 03 2017 - Trump Presidency

You do not owe the Republicans anything. You know the Republicans tried to stop you from being president; well screw 'em. You want to make America great again, do something the last two presidents have been unable to do: pass any kind of commonsense gun control legislation that the vast majority of Americans

Wow, son of a bitch? That was necessary roughness. There should be a flag on that play, and I'm going to say a Confederate flag. The blowback was immediate. Colin Kaepernick's mom, after seeing the president of the United States call her son a 'son of a bitch', tweeted, Guess that makes me one proud

Great solidarity for our national anthem and for our country. Standing with locked arms is good, kneeling is not acceptable. Bad ratings! Wrong: kneeling during the national anthem has everything to do with race, just like your presidency. Those players are protesting racial injustice. They're not protesting the American flag. Saying that kneeling is a protest against the flag is like saying Gandhi's hunger strikes were a protest against snacking. You do realize the civil rights activists weren't sitting at the lunch counter for better grilled

Everyone is talking about Donald Trump and the NFL. For the last year, some NFL players have been kneeling during the national anthem to protest institutional racism. It started with then-49ers quarterback Colin Kaerpernick with a controversial protest. After all, the singing of the national anthem is a sacred time when red-blooded Americans stand up and run to the bathroom because that's when the line is

I want to take a moment to send our thoughts to the people of Barcelona, Spain, who suffered a horrific attack today.

I also want to note that today President Trump said the right thing, tweeting, the 'United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help. Be tough and strong. We love you. Thank you, sir. Simple, dignified, presidential. That's what you hope for. He's right. We love you, Spain.

You might remember it took Donald Trump two days to condemn the white nationalists and the neo-Nazis who held that rally down in Charlottesville. But even though many criticized how long it took, the president knew the right thing was to make a statement on Monday to be clear about who was to blame, and then move on to the people's business. Just kidding. He held a press conference today in, I believe, the seventh circle of hell. Here's what he said. And when the president was asked about his embattled strategist Steve Bannon, he gave him this vote of …

Before we start the show tonight I'd like to go on the record: I do not want the world to blow up. That's where my house is. But things are getting tense between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. For the record, we didn't start it. North Korea has been testing these missiles for a long time now and saying specifically they're making them to attack the United States. So obviously a firm response is necessary, but maybe not 'fire and fury the likes of which the world has never

Here's how it went down. On Friday, Donald Trump hired new White House chief of staff and grandpa-who-doesn't-do-hugs Gen John Kelly. Kelly is replacing former chief of staff Reince Priebus. Kelly is the polar opposite of Reince Priebus. Kelly's military, Priebus is a Washington insider. Kelly's from Boston, Priebus is from Wisconsin. John Kelly has two first names. Reince Priebus has no recognizable names at all. And according to White House sources, Kelly let the Mooch go because he wanted 'more structure, less of Game of Throne'.feedback

Donald Trump is in France right now, and I feel je ne sais quoi, if you know what I mean. I don't, because I don't speak French. I don't blame Donald Trump for skipping town – the man has had a really rough week. His son admitted to colluding with Russia. His healthcare plan is looking dead in the water. And his press secretary still has his head stuck in that honey pot. So Trump is now in Paris, and he's going to be so disappointed once he learns that oui oui doesn't mean what he thinks it

Yesterday, Reince Priebus said this whole story is a nothing-burger. But these emails have turned it into all-you-can-prosecute buffet. Don Jr's emails were with British music publicist and guy who Tony Soprano whacked in season three, Rob Goldstone. This Brit met the Trumps at the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow, and I believe his job was to remove all the locks from the dressing-room

Jul 12 2017

It has been an exciting day. Last night, I told y'all about how Don Jr met with a Russian lawyer who claimed to have dirt on Hillary Clinton. Seemed pretty bad, but it turned out much worse. Goldstone could not have been clearer that this was going to be shady stuff. That's why he encrypted his communique with an algorithm that cyber-security experts call 'email.' And just a reminder, these emails were leaked by Donald Trump Jr himself. He's his own Deep Throat. He's deep-throating

I want to say something right now that I did not think was possible any more. I am shocked by something Donald Trump said. I thought, by now, after five months of this, my soul had calcified into a crouton. Not true, because today the president of the United States tweeted: 'I heard poorly-rated Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch any more).

There are a lot of good reasons not to have the vote this week. McConnell would have lost. Republicans, who were already nervous, ran for the exit after the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office announced that under the GOP plan 22 million people would lose their health coverage. Now to put that number into perspective, if you laid 22 million people end-to-end it would reach Canada – where they could get healthcare.

First he alleges a scandal worse than Watergate then he immediately goes after Schwarzenegger. It's like if Deep Throat told Woodward and Bernstein: 'You know, Nixon's a criminal, and The Six Million Dollar Man isn't real, it's all done with slow

Does the big angry man want to split up some Muslim families? I see a

Mar 03 2017 - Kremlin

Big news today out of the Kremlin – I'm sorry, I misread that: White House. You know how there's all this smoke about the idea that Trump and his folks colluded with the Russians to influence the election, and the Trump people are saying, There's nothing to see here'? Well I spy with my little eye the attorney general of the United States. Things are getting serious because the White House staff has been told to preserve all Russia-related materials. So, you hear that Mr. President? Do not get that mattress steam-cleaned

Mar 01 2017 - Nordstrom vs. Trump

Adding just one more thing: Suck it, Nordstrom. So, as we come to end of tonight's address to Congress, I think we can all agree on one thing – one down, seven to go. There's a quicker way to say that entire sentence. She just

Mar 01 2017 - Nordstrom vs. Trump

Any chance there's a mistake and 'Moonlight' is the president? Then he extinguished that torch with a coconut and asked the Democrats to leave the island. Honestly, I don't know what we inherited; you inherited, like, $100 million. Let's be honest. I've got to say, that must have been hard on Trump: People got so excited just hearing Obama's name. Well, there's one problem we can't solve for four years, but, other than that, I agree with you. And this surprised me. This next thing I did not expect at all. Trump came out as pro-choice when it comes to

Any chance there's a mistake and Moonlight is the president? The female members of the house Democratic caucus all wore white in honor of women's suffrage, while the Republicans wore white in honor of who elected them. So many handshakes, such little hands. It's just like the Statue of Liberty says: give us your tired, your poor, but not so poor that they can't afford a two-bedroom apartment and like, a Mitsubishi. Well, there's one problem we can't solve for four

Mar 01 2017 - Nordstrom vs. Trump

Mar 01 2017 - Nordstrom vs. Trump

Honestly, I don't know what we inherited. You inherited like, $100 million. O.K.? Let's be honest. Maybe even rebuild it 10 times, if we had people who refused to pay their contractors. Nonessential federal workers – so Kellyanne Conway is out? People who believe that Donald Trump is an existential threat to this nation, to the experiment of democracy, to Western civilization itself, take heart, because for their powerful rebuttal, the Democrats showed a rerun of 'The Andy Griffith

"But, if the president thinks a woman playing Sean Spicer makes him look weak, then he's really not going to like this picture we made of a little girl pretending to be Donald Trump,". "And he's especially not going to like it when you retweet at him with the hashtag #largerhands.". "I don't remember any terrorist attacks in Atlanta, and neither did CNN.".feedback

I know there's some polls out there saying that this man has a 32-percent approval rating. But guys like us, we don't pay attention to the polls. We know that polls are just a collection of statistics that reflect what people are thinking in 'reality.' And reality has a well-known liberal
