Trump’s ‘she’s not my type’ response to assault accusation gets roasted by Stephen Colbert

TwitterFacebook

Over the weekend, columnist E. Jean Carroll accused Donald Trump of sexual assault in the 1990s. The president denied the accusation, saying “it never happened,” and offered up quite the response: “She’s not my type.”

Trump’s lack of compassion was seized upon by late night show hosts, including Stephen Colbert, who slammed Trump for giving this “very, very bad reason why he’s innocent.”

“So it didn’t happen because she’s not his type. That is the sound of a man realising in mid-sentence…

Stephen Colbert skewers Trump’s 2020 campaign launch as a rehash of 2016

TwitterFacebook

It’s the campaign “that has never stopped,” according to The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert.

Trump officially kicked off his 2020 election campaign in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday, and Colbert went through the footage, dismissing any hope the tone of these rallies would change from what we saw in 2016.

“For those of you who were hoping that now that he’s president his tone would change, last night was a swift kick in the old hopey-changey,” he said.

After showing clips of the crowd…

Jon Stewart crashes ‘The Late Show’ to tell Mitch McConnell to do his job

TwitterFacebook

Last week, Jon Stewart stepped up with an emotional speech to call for the full funding of the 9/11 first responders compensation fund, something which he slammed Congress for their inaction towards.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who Stewart regarded as an “impediment” in the process, appeared on Fox News to wonder why the comedian “is all bent out of shape” over the debacle. In a surprise appearance on The Late Show, Stewart hit back.

“I’m not bent out of shape, I’m fine,” he…

Stephen Colbert does his best impression of Trump’s ‘Prince of Whales’

TwitterFacebook

Donald Trump may have deleted his tweet about meeting the “Prince of Whales,” Prince Charles, but we all saw it.

So did The Late Show host Stephen Colbert, who mocked the president for his post about meeting the misspelled Prince of Wales.

“Prince of Whales, fantastic guy. I threatened him with plankton tariffs, OK? I mean, I scared this guy, I got right up in his krill,” joked Colbert, in his signature Trump impression… which quickly turned into a whale impression. Read more…

Billy Porter thinks there’s a big problem with how we respond to men in dresses

TwitterFacebook

Billy Porter has been the talk of the town this week after donning a showstopping dress-suit hybrid to the Tony Awards. 

Fashioned out of the Kinky Boots curtain — yes, curtain — Porter’s Tony’s outfit featured a uterus motif as a statement about women’s reproductive rights. 

Speaking to Stephen Colbert, Porter talked about social views towards men who wear dresses — and what those views say about how society views women.

“We’ve moved beyond the idea that women wearing pants is a…

Turns out Samuel L. Jackson is pretty good at predicting election results

TwitterFacebook

Samuel L. Jackson was last on The Late Show in 2016. And back then, he (very correctly) said this about the election: “Don’t think the other thing can’t happen”.

He meant Trump getting elected, of course, and watching the clip back on Monday night, Jackson visibly cringes.

“I didn’t want to be right,” he says. “I hoped I was trying to be funny!”

When prompted by Stephen Colbert, Jackson agrees that he was also hoping people would go and vote.

“I hope they’ll go vote now,” he adds….

Stephen Colbert mocks Trump’s weird press conference with Macron

TwitterFacebook

On the anniversary of D-Day, following an official speech made in Normandy, Donald Trump held a rather strange press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron.

Thursday’s awkward event proved fruitful fodder for The Late Show host Stephen Colbert to mock the president with his classic impression, especially his praise for that France as having “many interesting places.”

“France has so many interesting places, there’s the hunchback church, there’s Old Penis Tower, that’s famous,…
