Look! ‘The President’ Is Reading His Next Batch Of Executive Orders (Video)

Hahaa! Jon Stewart is a FOOL and a half!

Well, no doubt, you’ve heard that President Trump has gotten more accomplished than any other President in history… from Trump… And he did it via executive orders. How appropriate that Colbert had ‘The Donald’ (well, an unreasonable facsimile) to let The Late Show audience in on a batch of ‘special’ executive orders.

Friend of the show Jon Stewart stops by to give Stephen a sneak peek at some executive orders he borrowed off the President’s desk.

Comedy: Stephen Colbert Says, “Don’t Move To Canada Just Yet!” (Video)

File this under laugh-to-keep-from-crying. But it is actually funny. Classic Colbert. It’s actually a monologue of hope… as America is on the verge of being made ‘great again.’ Like it or not, Donald J. Trump is the President Elect. But hey, this is what many American voters wanted. And the rest of us… we will endure. Together. We must! So don’t go running for border, eh. Stay.

Sure, they’ve got free healthcare up there. But being an American citizen is like family: you’re in it whether you like it or not.

Watch and take heart, Colbert Nation. We will be okay.

First Lady Michelle Obama Talks About Her Bestie Beyonce, Her Husband Barack And More (Video)

Hahahaaa! She called her husband ‘swagalicious’… priceless! Watching Michelle Obama talk about it with Stephen Colbert, you really get the feeling that the evening mealtime is more ‘dinner with the Obamas‘ than ‘dinner at The White House.’

Turns out everyone in President Obama’s family does an impression of him, usually at the dinner table. But the leader of the free world would rather gossip.

Nice. Lively interview with the lovely First Lady. Going to miss the Obamas when they move out of 1600. But bet your last dollar they will not just ‘go away.’ Way too much charisma and gumption for that. I’m almost as excited about the post-Presidency as I was when President Obama was voted and sworn in…both times #Swag

DeRay Mckesson Tell Stephen Colbert Why We Protest (Video)

If you ever get frustrated by folks saying, “Protests are a waste of time,” or, “What good is marching gonna do?” this DeRay Mckesson interview is for you. Actually, it’s for the ones who frustrate you; who likely have no better ideas. Wait… actually, it is for EVERYONE who needs to know (or be reminded) why we gotta do this.

Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson returns to The Late Show to share details from his meeting with President Obama, and explain why it’s crucial to take his message to the streets.

Comedy/Politics: Stephen Colbert Officially Opens The ‘Hungry For Power Games’ At The RNC (Video)

[Stephen Colbert] Julius and his pet weasel Caligula report from the 2016 Republican National Hungry For Power Games at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, where Tribute Trump is set to accept the party’s nomination.

Haaaa! The polished segment turned out even better than anticipated. Watch The Late Show segment that Stephen Colbert crashed the RNC to shoot (raw footage we posted from that here). So many comic jabs landed in this bit. You gotta watch!

Watch Stephen Colbert Crash The RNC Stage (Video)

Getting a bit of footage for a skit for The Late Show, Stephen Colbert sneaked up onto the podium and ‘gaveled’ the Republican National Convention (RNC) to order this past Sunday ‘Hunger Games’ style. However, the words he uttered as he struggled with the security staffer firmly escorting him away from the mic should prove to be most poignant and memorable:

“Look, look… I know I’m not supposed to be up here. But let’s be honest, neither is Donald Trump.”

Solid. Satirical. Political. GOLD!!

Bill Maher Says That Police Culture Has To Change (Video)

Above: Bill Maher tells Stephen Colbert that we need policing as a society. He values the police and denounces shooting of police, like most, BUT he understands why police got shot at this point.

You can only look at so many videos of shooting unarmed Black people. I’m surprised it didn’t happen before.

Wow. Then Colbert follows up with a quote from the late President John F. Kennedy: “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.” Then Maher goes in further: Police culture – attracting the wrong types of people, protecting wrongdoers within their ranks, not administering true justice when wrongdoers are caught, even the training – HAS to change!

Yeah. By this point in the evening, the funny part of the show was over, as Maher declared.

(Well, actually, they got in some more joke pokes… some at each other… but, trust, the serious power of what was said was not diminished.)

Incredible conversation The Late Show. Colbert keeps bringing thoughtful TV to CBS; while allowing what needs to be said to be said. Watch.

Eddie Huang aka The Human Panda Talks About Identity And Chews The Pork Fat With Stephen Colbert (Video)

Good stuff. We knew Eddie when he was “Fresh Off The Boat” with VICE. Now, he’s with ABC… still “Fresh…” But he has not forgotten where he came from – Taiwan or online – and he is going back (to VICELAND with a new show, “Huang’s World”). Watch Eddie talking with Stephen Colbert above and after the jump about all kinds of stuff – like them delicious-looking pork buns.

To Be Clear: Bernie Sanders And Donald Trump Are NOT The Same…At All! (Video)

Ha! A two-fer! Bernie Sanders in the White House AND Bill O’Reilly moving to Ireland. Let’s do it people. O’Reilly was talking to Stephen Colbert the other night, saying that Sanders and Donald Trump were the same candidate with ‘different haircuts.’ WHAT? Okay, commentary like that alone might get more folks voting for Sanders (bye Bill). Watch Sanders’ sit-down with Colbert…making more sense than Trump has for most of his life.

Fresh off of his win in the New Hampshire primary, Bernie Sanders stops by The Late Show to talk about why his campaign is different.

Killer Mike With Advice To White Americans And More On ‘The Late Show’ With Stephen Colbert (Video)

Let’s borrow Larry Wilmore’s catch phrase and apply it to the guest former Comedy Central cohort Stephen Colbert had on just recently: The man Killer Mike kept it 100 (and then some) on the The Late Show, didn’t he? Hitting a variety of hot topics with Colbert: Ferguson, Baltimore, race relations in general, stumping for his Presidential candidate of choice Bernie Sanders and so much more.

Spike Lee Speaks On The Basis Of His New Film ‘Chi-Raq’ & Elaborates on Chicago, Sex Strikes (Video)

Interesting. Spike Lee and Stephen Colbert discuss the dire straits of Chicago’s war-like violence and casualty rates, the foundations/inspirations for “Chi-Raq” (a spin off the Ancient Greek satire “Lysistrata,” in which Athenian women vow to withhold sex until their men end the The Peloponnesian War), and the possibility of sex strikes on campus in the coming semester after his movie drops.

“I think that a sex strike could really work on college campuses where there’s an abundance of sexual harassment and date rapes. Second semester it’s going to happen. Once people come back from Christmas, there’s going to be sex strikes at universities and college campuses across this country. I believe it.”
Spike Lee

Gun control. Police brutality. So much in a short clip to watch. And you must!

Comedy: Stephen Colbert Speaks Out On Police Brutality (Video)

Black Lives Matter. You know it. We know it. Stephen Colbert knows it. And the problem is not ALL cops. Stephen knows that, too. But there is a ‘but’…

“These days there are a lot of people out there talking about the use of excessive force by the police, and without courting any controversy I want to say that police have a very hard job putting their lives on the line. And the vast majority are good people. On the other hand, Black people aren’t imagining this stuff.”
Stephen Colbert

Great to see that Stephen did not lose his Comedy Central-born boldness to go tongue-in-cheek (or maybe sharp-tongued criticism with witticism) on important social matters of the day now that he is on big network TV. Bringing levity while shedding more light on police brutality. And still stay hella funny. Kudos to Colbert!

Stephen Colbert Talks Politics With Bernie Sanders And Walks ‘Silly’ With Lupita Nyong’O (Video)

Y’all done messed up now. Giving Stephen Colbert a ‘bump’ to a bigger media platform – from Comedy Central to CBS – allows him to do what he does, increased by an order of magnitude. Political satire on 10? Nah, on 100! And he’s just getting started. Above: Check him out lampooning the 2016 field of U.S Presidential candidates. “Feel the Bern” (candidate Bernie Sanders) for real. And dare you not to chuckle at the Republican candidates…

…Oh, you already were? Well, this’ll chuck some chuckles into the laugh fest.

Hit the jump for more hilarity; and Colbert spending some silly time with actress Lupita Nyong’O. And by the time all your watching and laughing are done, you will also have a little something to think about. Balancing comedy and commentary: it’s what Colbert does better than most anybody else in the biz.

Stephen Colbert: U-S-A! U-S-A! America’s Number One In The World… At Locking People Up (Video)

Soaking up all the Stephen Colbert cleverness – Tonight’s Word – on Comedy Central before he makes the leap from cable to big network TV (CBS’ Late Night With David Letterman’s replacement). The tongue-in-cheek ‘conservative’ pundit declares America is still Number 1 … in the number of people the country incarcerates (“in your face, China”)! He zeroes in on California’s prisons; but there is enough comedic jabbing for lots more in America to feel the King Of [Sarcastic] Sting.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk Tells Stephen Colbert: ‘We Should Go To Mars’ (Video)

Elon Musk (aka Marvel Comics’ character Tony Starks come to life) recently interviewed with Stephen Colbert, telling him that he is “aspiring to send people to Mars.” Of course, the billionaire who owns SpaceX has had his eyes on out-of-this-world travel, but his reasoning is intriguing. Worth watching the above clip for.

“…humanity as we know it is likely to propagate into the future much further than if we are a single-planet species…[It’s] life insurance, collectively…It would be the greatest adventure ever…really exciting and inspiring…it’s possible to transform Mars into an Earth-like planet.”

Very cool.

Comedy: Stephen Colbert ‘Gets Lucky’ Performing Daft Punk’s Hit (Video)

So that’s the word: The French dance music duo Daft Punk cancels on their Colbert Report appearance – citing as the reason a prior arrangement to do no live performances for the MTV/Viacom associated networks before MTV’s VMA Awards. But so what??!! Host Stephen Colbert does his own star-studded “Get Lucky” music video/performance/dancefest for his ColbChella ‘013… and it will be one of the most enjoyable clips you will watch this week!

(Actually, the Daft Punk guys may not have even been scheduled for the show… so don’t hold any grudges for them. But DO enjoy the above clip… thoroughly!)

The Word: ‘Color-Bind’ on The Colbert Report (Video)

President Obama takes the first step in racial dialogue by discussing how it feels to be in a room full of White people who are scared of him.’

– The Colbert Report

Oh, Fox News! Only you would take serious commentary on being Black in America and dismiss the conversation as frivolous. Guess good ole boys will be good ole boys. Right, Bill O’Reilly? Bernard Goldberg? Actually reporting that questions on race are moot because [odds are] Black people are the ones committing violent crimes. Wowwww.

Don’t get mad though folks. Stephen Colbert hits ’em in the head with the brilliant/hilarious skit (above) about black men and racism. Have a chuckle at the Fox chuckle-heads’ expense.
