Stephen Colbert Nails Parody Of Alex Jones As “Tuck Buckford”

Who says Alex Jones of Info Wars is unstable? Other than his ex-wife who’s suing him in court?

He’s just like you and me.

Well, maybe he’s just like Stephen Colbert’s character “Tuck Buckford.”

I’ve never really gotten the appeal of Mr. Jones – he just rants and rants and rants, and somehow that’s how folks want to get their news?

“Tuck’s” explanation for the Tooth Fairy is so spot-on Jones, I literally laughed out loud.

Watch below.

Stephen Colbert Riffs On The Fall Of Bill O’Reilly

Stephen Colbert of The Late Show has some parting words for now-fired Bill O’Reilly.

Along the way, Colbert shares part of the statement issued from Fox News lauding Bill as they kicked him out the door.

The statement read, “By ratings standards, Bill O’Reilly is one of the most accomplished TV personalities in the history of cable news.”

Colbert amended the statement adding, “By rating stands, he is. By moral standards, he was a self-righteous landfill of angry garbage.”

Btw – it’s being reported today that O’Reilly will walk away with a golden parachute of “tens of millions of dollars.”

The Late Show Spoofs Rachel Maddow’s Preamble Technique

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert nails this parody of Rachel Maddow’s tendency to go on at length in introducing a topic before finally getting to the actual topic.

Some folks were a bit disappointed Tuesday night after Maddow’s much-hyped reveal of Donald Trump’s taxes turned out to be only two pages from 12 years ago.

The episode attracted 4.13 million viewers, her biggest audience ever.

While some compared the moment with Geraldo Rivera’s infamous unearthing of Al Capone’s vault, others thought it masterful by drawing in the viewers (including Trump supporters) and using the preamble to review her recent investigation into Trump’s Russian ties.

With my short attention span, I do sometimes find her openings too long, but she always has a point she’s heading to.

Watch Colbert demonstrate the “Maddow method” below:

Stephen Colbert: “Never Fjorget What Happened In Sweden”

Last night, The Late Show‘s Stephen Colbert did not miss his chance to riff on President Trump’s latest gaffe – the “incident” in Sweden that never happened.

“And just because this attack didn’t happen, folks, doesn’t mean we don’t stand in solidarity with all the people who did not suffer.”

Referencing Trump’s apparent news source for comment and his propensity for skipping intelligence briefings, Colbert said, “I guess Trump only accepts intelligence reports with the logo, ‘As Seen on TV.’”

Funny: Stephen Colbert’s Take On The Presidential Debate

Because we can’t be serious ALL the time.

Stephen Colbert of The Late Show offers HIS recap of the first presidential debate.

He pretty much gets it all in here: the “Trump sniffle,” the “women are pigs” thing, Trump’s favorite word, “no.”

From Entertainment Weekly:

During his monologue on Monday’s live edition of The Late Show, Colbert called out Trump’s sniffles, joking that Trump “sounded like he was fighting off a cold with cocaine.”

After playing a montage of Trump sniffling, Colbert added, “He sounded like the coked-up best man in the bathroom at a wedding. ‘You guys, I got it, I know how we can fix the entire economy. Let’s buy a boat.’”

Stephen Colbert Tracks Down Trump’s “Top Cop”

Donald Trump recently told Bill O’Reilly on Fox News that he had spoken to a “top cop” in Chicago who said he could solve all crime if the police were allowed to get “tougher” with suspects.

The problem is no one knows who this “top cop” might be.

So, host Stephen Colbert went looking for this “top cop.”
Late Show

You see where this is going, right?

RawStory has the recap:

“All I know is this,” Trump claimed. “I went to a top police officer in Chicago, who is not the police chief, and I could see by the way he was dealing with his people, he was a rough, tough guy, they respected him greatly.”

“We here at the Late Show, we’ve done a little digging, and that cop is here tonight,” Colbert began before introducing “Officer Rod Johnson.”

Colbert asked ‘Officer Johnson” what specifically he told Trump.

“I told him there are some naughty people out there who need to be in cuffs,’ Johnson replied, before identifying himself as a “rough tough cop.”

Stephen Colbert Has A Question For Donald Trump

Last night,an audience member asked this question during a Late Show Q&A that wasn’t broadcast.

Audience: “If you had Donald Trump on your show tonight, what would you ask him?”

Said Colbert: “Well we’re not broadcasting right now, so I’d say ‘What does Vladimir Putin’s di*k taste like?’”

I should underline that this was not broadcast on TV 🙂

Stephen Colbert Takes To The Podium To Launch “The 2016 Republican National Hungry For Power Games!”

Stephen Colbert at the “center of power” at the Republican National Convention

Stephen Colbert jumped the gun a bit here when he unexpectedly took to the stage at the Republican National Convention to gavel in the festivities.

From Raw Story:

The footage shows Colbert in his “Caesar Flickerman” regalia declaring from the stage that Trump “has formed an alliance with Indiana Gov. Mike Pence” before seemingly falling asleep at the mention of Pence’s name.

“Sorry, I blacked out there for a moment,” he says upon recovering, before proclaiming that “it is my honor to hereby launch and begin the 2016 Republican National Hungry For Power Games!”

At that point a security guard is seen hassling Colbert, who quickly protests, “I know I’m not supposed to be up here — honest, neither is Donald Trump.”
