STRANGLER CAUGHT, UH, HATES LEFT-HANDED PEOPLE.>>WHAT IF HE —
>>Stephen: IF I’M LEFT-HANDED WHY WOULD I WANT TO KNOW THAT.>>THEN DEMOCRATS SHOULD HANG
THEIR HEAD IN SHAME? HE WAS A PSYCHOPATH.>>Stephen: THE ARTICLE

  • Stephen Colbert, hey douchebag, let the man answer your dumbfounded questions (or lack thereof). He is about to respond and you keep cutting him out.

  • stephen colbert need hang HIS head in shame. He uses his night show unapologetically as a format to incite hatred for our president to his tv audience. he continues to douse the fire with enough gasoline to fill the fuel tank of every vehicle in this country tenfold! he is directly responsible for his individual role contributing in the civil chasm of our country! he is synonymous with the statement of hating donald trump more than his love for america. this is how he will be remembered in this life. his imprint would not be so embedded in our future’s history had he not so largely contributed to stepping up differing opinions from words to physical violence. SC will not be remembered as a hero, rather quite the contrary. does he not realize this or does he absolutely realize this?

  • The point is simple: News outlets should report the news and not be 3rd party advertisers! Rebel Media is harsh conservative-they are also "journalists" who run a tonne of 3rd party advertising. CNN does the same. Washington Post, etc….all journalism it seems is hell frigging bent on slanted, biased journalism and Wallace is the one journalist pointing it out and Colbert is refuting and arguing a very simple fact because it shoots his narrative down. That's pretty disappointing.

  • wow they left out the part when Chris made Steven look like the stupid left wing nut job he Is. But tjats what they are best at.

  • Calling everything a ball and giving the GOP all walks is not journalism especially when an occasional strike is called for a so-called ‘balanced’ news.🧐🤪🤤🥴💩🤡

  • WHAT A SHAME OF COLBERT , !!! I USE TO BE big fan , and now that he came a FULL LEFTIST with NO SHAME AND ANTI AMERICAN wow WHAT A SHAME COLBERT

  • Wow. I talk to people like Colbert on the daily here in california. So arrogant, so willing to play gotchya, so truly ignorant of what is important in life: getting to truth.

  • The job of the press is to report the news. President Trump has reminded them of that. They think they're in charge of public opinion and they have been, but not anymore. No wonder they hate him.

  • Stephen was so obviously being wilfully obtuse, or just dishonest.

    “Bomb suspect outspoken supporter of Trump”

    Implicit in that headline is the suggestion that there is a link between the actions of that man and him being a Trump supporter.
    Therefore implying Trump is somehow culpable.

    Regardless of what you think of Trump, that’s not right.

    The news media are guilty of so many incidences of double standards — which are driven by their own bias.

    It’s not right. Because that’s not journalism.

  • I’m pretty much down the middle politically and honestly have to agree with Chris here. We over romanticize the Trump influence and it’s really just a backhanded way for the Washington post to criticize Trump. It’s cheap and doesn’t really pertain to the story. Also I’m sick of trying to relate anything and everything back to Trump like it even matters. Oh Trump likes Raisin Bran well fuck you Kelloggs for selling to a nazi. Fucking give it a break already 🙄

  • Chris Wallace was right. The Muller "interview" was a disaster for Muller and the Democrats. ChrisW was also spot-on by saying reporters (main stream media) not doing real reporting, or they are distorting information into false (weird) narratives. Also well done for tearing up that self produce stats sheet. Haahaa

  • Colbert is a typical Leftist Marxist lying Democrat party sycophant. He is a lowlife scumbag and that may be too nice. Only ignorant, brainwashed, snowflakes with no ability to think independently would waste a minute with this imbecile.

  • Washington Post: Mad Bomber caught and he was a fan of Obama.

    Me: Okay so what are you trying to say newspaper? Do you mean that the bomber was a democrat? Are you saying Democrats are like mad bombers?

    Washington Post: Just throwing that factoid nugget out there. You draw your own conclusions.

    Does that example help you understand now Mr. Colbert? What that type of headline does is attempt to lead the reader to draw a conclusion that unfairly links one individual to another. It's not even subtle. It's over the top wrong.

  • Colbert is purposely being obtuse. Wallace’s point that EVERY frigging headline doesn’t need to be partisan or anti-Trump is not lost on Colbert. 🙄

  • Used to like Colbert on Colbert Report, now he’s just a partisan schill for the Dems. Worse is he doesn’t even know how many people that used to like him don’t watch him anymore. He’s so uncomfortable being challenged …… total D-bag

  • No collusion… End of story… This is the kind of show you get when David Letterman retires…

  • I love how those on the left always say “it shouldn’t matter that the terrorist was Muslim, he was a psychopath.”

    Yet when we say the very same thing about a crazy conservative they see no problem with it.

    The cognitive dissonance and clear hypocrisy of people on the left these days is really incredible.

  • Chris made Steve look like Mueller during the hearing. Stephan you obviously did not watch the hearing like Mueller didnt read his own report

  • Stephanie Colbert is a complete hack!! The only time I can stand to watch the garbage is in these little clips where he shows his true stupidity. I could not ever stomach a whole hour of this punk ass steaming pile.

  • Colbert is trash. Politifact is biased. Man Colbert used to be so much better when he was……..oh nevermind.

  • Leftists who pretend to not know or understand shit just to try and make conservatives wrong are the worst of humanity… Too bad all of them are like that. Anything to just disagree. Like pretending the hearing was a success… Every leftist mouthpiece admitted it was a disaster. Colbert pretending he wasn't and Wallace was the only one to claim it's a disaster. What a massive pile of shit this guy is. Way to use false stats to claim Wallace was wrong and then easily get disproved on your own show. Scumbag Colbert.

  • Hey Colbert… when the Titanic struck the iceberg did they know it was a disaster before the ship actually went down? Christ you must have said at least 30 or 40 times that there was no way Donald Trump would ever be elected president and this was before the election was ever held. Yet Chris Wallace calls the Mueller testimony a disaster an hour and a half in and somehow he's out of line? It's okay for you to do it before the election is even held but somehow when a Republican does something similar oh my God that is just so wrong. You clowns are the biggest hypocrites on the planet.

  • Although I disagree with Jimmy Kimmel's political views, he's 10 times funnier & more talented than this stiff.

  • And the old saying “
    Liberalism is a mental disorder was proven on Colbert that night 😂😂😂
    God Bless America
    &
    God Bless President Trump

  • Hilarious Chris Wallace is getting trump supporters to agree with him 😂😂😂😂😂😂my sides hurt. 😂😂😂😂😂😂.

  • Immigration facts? See how they have to throw the word "facts" in your face? They know they are lying to you. Your being programmed and don't even know it.

  • Colbert is being disingenuous here.. Obviously the point of that headline was to bash Trump unjustly.

  • Let's take Colbert at his word; he really doesn't recognize Wallace's point regarding the Washington Post headline. Ok, that means he either lacks the ability to think critically or he is blinded by his own bias. Either way, not a good look.

  • I think what Chris is saying is he doesn't like click-bait. The fact that he was a drumph fan should have been in the article. Maybe the writer was just worried it would get buried in the article.

  • It is not that the MAGA bomber was a Trump fan. It is the fact that he felt the president wanted him to go after the president's enemies. It is proof that the rhetoric of the president does cause evil behavior and we cannot ignore that reality. A president needs to represent the entire diverse nation that is America. A president is a role model for many and a source of inspiration. After 9/11 Bush had a message about how all America can be vigilant of possible threats. Maybe he went a little too far. That is an important question to ask. A president must make it infinitely clear that literally harming other people because of something he said is not appropriate and that he regrets that he didn't see this coming.

  • From now on when a criminal is arrested ask them if trump made them do it then they will be in the clear if they say so Cruz trump's at fault for everything.

  • Stephen Colbert is not funny. Not sure why people would listen to his show. Just another show trying to divide the country.
