"I hear you have a potty mouth".
As Ajit Pai, Trump's choice to run the FCC, may or may not have implied that Colbert would be under investigation after a joke he recently made about Donald Trump, perhaps Cage will be their - and our - only hope.
Stephen Colbert took a trip down memory lane Tuesday when he invited his old colleagues from "The Daily Show" over to the Ed Sullivan Theater in NY where he tapes "The Late Show". "You have to be really nice to them all day", Bee said. "Like, it's the difference between insult and injury".
"There are nights where I find myself sort of, impotently shouting into the abyss". "I can't put it into words, but I can put it into flashback", he joked before playing the sketch of himself and his colleagues back in summer of 2005.
Hamas elects Haniyeh as new political chief - spokesman
Ismail Haniya has been elected as the new leader of Hamas's political bureau, according to the Palestinian movement's news agency. The intimation is that Hamas now accepts the State of Israel.
It's also likely no accident Colbert opted last night to hold a de facto Daily Show reunion as he was joined not only by one-time mentor Jon Stewart, but fellow alums Ed Helms, Samantha Bee, John Oliver, and Rob Corddry. (Stewart and his wife own a sanctuary farm in New Jersey.) "But the things that I've gained in terms of time with family, I wouldn't give up", Stewart continued. "Where are y'all from?'" But a "Daily Show" producer was able to deflect attention before she and Colbert took off running.
Colbert even told a story about fleeing the Ku Klux Klan in Pulaski, Tennessee, after "big guys in hoods" questioned why he was covering a cross burning for Comedy Central. "There's never going to be another president this good for comedy", she said. It's not that I think Stewart affects policy in any meaningful way-he's largely preaching to my liberal coastal elitist choir, but it did help to process outrageous and terrifying news when people as amusing as Stewart and his golden-era correspondents were there taking us through it, as outraged as the rest of us and making us laugh for a few minutes. What is this now?
The show wrapped up with Colbert and his guests thanking Stewart for giving them their first real breaks. Because you used to, you know, talk about bullsh*t. "So basically he's sending a small mouse into the lion's den". The President also said he thinks CNN's Chris Cuomo looks like a "chained lunatic" on television while CNN's Don Lemon is "perhaps the dumbest person is broadcasting". He knows all about what we're doing. "Did Trump forget about the Hillary emails that Comey talked about?"
