    The sleaze sublime, this guy. His secret is a dash of glee, no matter how awful he is.

    I am missing Colbert while he is in New Zealand. How could he leave us at this time! I need him to help me manage my anxiety while all this is going on. I keep lurking on Flash-Player waiting for him to come back.

    As a grateful watcher of fleabag, this was such the great/best clip they could have used to introduce him and the show. This show really is as it's freaking hyped up to be.

    The only rational is that Obama thought it was the right thing to do therefore in Trumpโ€™s giant walnut sized brain it is wrong. Congress needs to impeach this guy before more damage is done.

    THE OATH OF OFFICE IS TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NOT TO THE PERSONS WITH THE TITLE.. !!! Our immediate and most dangerous situation is that Trump continues as President and Chief of our Armed Services. It has been investigated and verified by all of our Intelligence Agencies that Russia' (Putin) did attack and influenced the Election Process in these United States !! Hundreds of communications with Russians. The United States Adversaries are attentively evaluating and will continue to focus their weaponized media to Elect and legislate in our Country !!! The Pentagon must divert urgent attention and funds to defend and respond to Russia's threat. Stop wasting Billions on Nuclear weapons !!! The World has enough to turn Mother Earth into a WASTELAND !! Not even a dictator wants to turn into a heap of fuming ashes !! The United States , with its allies and through the United Nations, should demand a halt of all Weaponized electronic media assault on ALL NATIONS ELECTIONS IMMEDIATELY !!! The Majority of the American people do not have the time between holding 2 jobs , child care , caring for our elderly to waste time on Conspiracy and Obstruction .!. Using our very own Constitution and Justice System to protect Traitors !!!! Pray that God gives our Generals and Others around the President the moral strength as Patriots to Guard and Protect our Country !!!! The Oath of Office is Sacred in our Political System and MUST BE RESPECTED !!! By the way where is Trump getting all this extra money to pay for these multi-million dollar Constitutional Attorney Firms ???? God Bless America, Mother Earth, our sick, our children our elderly, ,the homeless families with children thrown to the streets by the greed of our Banks & Wall Street, Millions of young prisoners who couldn't afford Million Dollar Attorneys while Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking of minors, gets a pat on the back; the working poor, our citizen immigrants, our Unions, our Heroes and Patriots. The GOP, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham & AG Barr should be impeached for violating their OATH OF OFFICE and charged as Traitors . Putin & his Billionaire Russian Oligarchs have been and are currently laundering money in the United States for many years. Just ask Trump & Co. which has been financed throughout the last 30 Years !!! How do you BANKRUPT CASINOS ?? The NRA received Millions for the Trump Campaign disbursement. These Communist Countries are out to Destroy our Democracy from within. Europe & the world have faith and patience!! AMERICAN DEMOCRACY WILL ENDURE !!! The NRA has 10 Million members, Trump has 30 Million followers, and the rest of the 230 million american citizens must VOTE this Traitor and co-conspirators out of Office and into Prison.!!. America has millions of working poor in Prison who can't afford expensive attorney firms like Trump & Associates.!! The 1% Billionaires received 2 TRILLION tax cuts, while 18 years later the 911 first responders are dying while waiting for GOP to fund their healthcare !!!. These parasites in Congress and the House are bought and paid for by lobbyist yelling from atop their Corporate Socialist Platforms against Democratic Socialism for the needy and poor. Hopefully, Our Constitution and the Rico Act will take care of the Trump Mob & Associates. God Bless the United States of America, our Heroes and Patriots. May all the Traitors be charged and given a one way ticket to Russia and as proof of our resentment, be given an AK-47 when they step off the plane !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That sucks. He robbed himself unknowingly by being himself but CBS took time to plug a Viacom clip for heritage of their star in his infancy at the chopping off the book plug. Hope people go get his book. He's funny and that show looks appealing.

    Trump is the new Eminem and Colbert is his biggest supporter, โ€œBut sometimes this shit just seems
    everybody only wants to discuss me
    So this must mean I'm disgusting
    But it's just me I'm just obscene
    Though I'm not the first king of controversy I am the worst thing since Elvis Presleyโ€
    Colbert and every late night talk show host riding those lengthy ball bearings to a few dollars profit.
