Stephen Colbert thinks Julian Assange looks like a terrible roommate

TwitterFacebook

Reported details have emerged about Julian Assange’s seven years within the Ecuadorian embassy, and Stephen Colbert reckons they make the Wikileaks founder look like quite the crappy roommate.

The Late Show host is not just talking about the embassy accusing Assange of spying on other countries from the building, and hacking the phone of President Lenin Moreno, either.

Aside from reports of Assange skateboarding inside at night, playing loud music, and schmearing ungodly things on the…

Stephen Colbert uses strong Harry Potter comparison to describe the full Mueller report

TwitterFacebook

Attorney General William Barr’s four-page summary of Robert Mueller’s almost two-year investigation is a little too short for many, as the House Judiciary Committee approved a subpoena to obtain the full report on Wednesday.

It’s hard to relate to exactly how long that kind of read is, but The Late Show host Stephen Colbert put it into terms we’d understand.

“Barr’s summary was not quite four pages long, while the full Mueller report is nearly 400 pages. That’s Harry Potter length,” he…

Colbert also noted Trump’s recent tweet reiterating the term,…

Stephen Colbert skewers Trump’s use of rhyming in his State of the Union address

TwitterFacebook

It’s been 24 hours, so we’ve all had a little time to reflect on Donald Trump’s State of the Union address — including Stephen Colbert.

The Late Show host destroyed Trump’s speech one clip at a time immediately afterward on Tuesday, but on Wednesday night, he looped back to pick up one particular feature of Trump’s speech: rhyming.

“If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation,” Trump had said, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia…

Stephen Colbert smashes Pence’s Trump-MLK comparison with one quote

TwitterFacebook

On Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday weekend, Vice President Mike Pence decided it was a great idea to steal a line from the civil rights legend’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech to draw comparisons to Donald Trump, and garner support for his $5.7 billion border wall.

Seriously.

“One of my favorite quotes from Doctor King was, “Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.’” Pence said during an interview with Margaret Brennan on CBS’ Face The Nation

“You think of how he…
