We really should adopt Stephen Colbert, don’t you think?
My favorite thing about the Late Show host is his innate ability to infuse his takedowns with the kind, cheery sort of comedy that might even leave its victims smiling. He’s so darned charming about it, some people mightn’t even realize they’ve just been eviscerated, and everyone leaves a Colbert clip softly chuckling to themselves. That’s some special brand of brilliance, don’t you think?
Take, for instance, last night’s opener, wherein Trump’s sicko defense of Fox buddy, Bill O’Reilly’s over $13 million spent to settle allegations of sexual harassment leveled against a guy someone like me might call a pig, but Trump calls “a good guy”; Colbert deftly calls out the ridiculousness of that statement, as well as what should be Trump’s … shall we say, disqualifying factors. And, he does it all with a gleeful smile, an easy grace, and an attitude that’ll definitely leave a guy like Trump unaware he’s been put in the corner, again.
Next up, Ivanka Trump’s confusion over the meaning of complicit,
and Kendall Jenner’s ludicrous Pepsi ad. Heck, there’s even a little stripper dance.
Two Trumps and a Jenner down, just like that! And you still feel happy, don’t you?
