Stephen Colbert knows exactly what his uninformed audience wants to hear, so he keeps giving it to them.
At the end of this first paragraph (below), the late night host not only takes a swipe at President Trump for allegedly referring to Haiti and African nations as ‘s***holes,’ but at America, as well!
From The Week:
“All week long, President Trump has tried desperately to convince us that he is a stable, steady leader,” Stephen Colbert said on Thursday’s Late Show. “It was a nice act, but like many men his age, he can only keep it up for so long. Today he returned to the same unstable, reactionary president we’ve come to know and… know.” He began with Trump’s vulgar comments about Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations. “Sir, they’re not ‘shithole countries,'” Colbert said. “For one, Donald Trump isn’t their president.”
“But that wasn’t the only packet of international crazy sauce he squirted out today,” Colbert noted, mentioning Trump’s statement that he “probably” has “a very good relationship” with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. “Probably? That is definitely terrifying,” he said. “How do you not know if you have a relationship with someone?” Trump also claimed he knows “more about wedges than any human being that’s lived,” and Colbert found that plausible “Oh sir, you are a wedge,” he said, pausing, “the simplest of tools.”
More from Daily Wire:
Colbert should ask expatriate North Koreans whether their country of origin is a s***hole. Or expatriate Cubans. Or expatriate Sudanese or expatriate Iranians or expatriate Haitians. There are indeed crappy countries. That’s why such wonderful people flee them. And the United States is not among those countries. If it were, Colbert wouldn’t live here. He has the cash to move elsewhere.
This is how the Left blows up its own talking point. Instead of focusing on the real problem with Trump’s statement – that he seems to be judging the quality of immigrants based on the quality of the country from which they spring, which is foolish – Colbert and the Left have jumped on the idea that we’re not allowed to say that some countries are worse than others. That’s plainly idiotic.
Not cool, Stephen.
Not cool at all!
