The News According to Stephen Colbert

The News According to Stephen Colbert
Watch Stephen Colbert's political commentary weeknights at 11:35 ET/PT on Global TV.

Stephen Colbert’s got you covered on everything Trump, never missing a beat with his witty political commentary. Here’s a recap on what you may have missed in the news…

One of Trump’s first orders of business on taking office was to repeal Obamacare- a highly controversial move that has both Democrats and Republicans sparring. While going over the details of Trump’s new plan, Colbert somehow found a way to make a dig at his underwhelming inauguration audience.

It seems like every week there’s another member of Trump’s administration coming under fire for their ties to Russia. Trump maintains that he doesn’t have connections to Russia, but using a simple diagram, Colbert can prove otherwise.

Recently, Donald Trump delivered his first speech to Congress calling for unity and renewal of the American spirit. Supporters thought the speech showed a much more presidential Trump, but leave it to Colbert to find the parts of the speech that didn’t make a lot of sense.

Contrary to his promises on the campaign trail, Trump rescinded protections for transgender students that gave them the freedom to use whichever bathroom they wanted.  For that, Colbert had a few words for President Trump, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

In a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump challenged anyone who has something negative to say about him to say it to his face. That’s challenge Stephen could hardly resist…

 

Trump’s disaster of a press conference was easy bait for Colbert, and the media as a whole. And in a rare moment, Colbert actually finds something he and Trump agree on.
