GROSS: Colbert Launches ‘Late Show’ with Donald Trump on Screen With KKK (Video)
Guest post by Aleistar
Stephen Colbert’s first night on the Late Show proved he’s still every bit the left wing hack he was on Comedy Central. He spent almost six solid minutes bashing Donald Trump but not a single joke about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal or crazy Socialist Bernie Sanders.
In he first show he plays the Trump-KKK comparison.
Like all good little liberals, Colbert fails to acknowledge that the KKK was created by Democrats.
Watch the segment here:
Joe Concha of Mediaite trashed the show in a review today:
Colbert’s Late Show Debut Disappoints with Average Guests, Partisan Monologue
All the hype is over. All the fanboys in the media gone. The first Late Show with Stephen Colbert is in the books. And the final grade is?
For a show that had nine months to prepare for one big night, there was something wholly unsatisfying about Colbert’s debut from the Ed Sullivan theatre in New York last night. On the booking front, George Clooney is just OK, because when was the last time he did a movie that made him truly relevant, truly the biggest name Hollywood? Gravity (2013), maybe? And on the political front, the show should have found a way to book Donald Trump, but we got sleepy Jeb Bush instead.

Laura Ingraham tweeted this out last night:
Glad Colbert has shown his political leanings early. Where are the Hillary email jokes, Stevie?

The new Late Show is apparently going to be just like the old Late Show.
100% Left wing. Ratings be damned.
