President Donald Trump has a long history of divisive and inflammatory rhetoric, but on Wednesday again he refused to accept any responsibility for the consequences. “I think my rhetoric brings people together,” he improbably insisted outside of the White House. “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert allowed that there’s one way that could be true. “I […]
Kilmeade said Obama was talking about Trump and sprang to the president’s defense. But as the “Late Show” host pointed out, Obama didn’t mention Trump at all in his statement.“Why are you acting so offended? Obama did not say Trump was the racist,” Colbert pointed out. “You just did!”
But he has also called those who chant to racist epithet “patriots” and, as he left for a rally in Ohio on Thursday, didn’t indicate whether he would try to stop the chant if it broke out again. (The Cincinnati crowd did not chant the phrase Thursday night, Reuters reported.)
“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert on Monday broke out a new song, but it’s one that won’t be played in the White House anytime soon.

The “Late Show” host jokes about a curious word choice in the president’s latest attack on Democrats.
Colbert delivered a quick summary of Trump’s past, from his never-retracted calls to execute the Central Park Five, who were ultimately exonerated, to his “birther” attacks on former President Barack Obama and more. “Racism is your brand!” Colbert said. “It’s like Col. Sanders saying, ‘I don’t have a finger-lickin’ bone in my body.” Trump this weekend fired […]
The two late-night hosts sing “The NeverEnding Story” theme just like Dustin and Suzie did in the Netflix series.
Stephen Colbert returned from two weeks off the air to take on President Donald Trump’s latest racist rant on Twitter.
