Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Carmen Yulín Cruz Praises Americans’ Big Hearts, Warns Trump’s Tax Plan Will Hurt Puerto Rico on The Late Show

It's been just over two months since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, and the island is still undergoing a massive recovery effort. San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, who's become a popular spokesperson for the island as she's led her city through recovery, was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to update us on Puerto Rico's progress, thank the American people for their generosity, and warn that certain U.S. government actions and policies are harmful to Puerto Rico's recovery.

Late Night Hosts: “Now Is Not the Time” Means “Never” on Gun Control

The last two days have been terrible due to the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday night, which resulted in nearly 60 deaths and over 500 people injured. Those who don't see it as a rallying cry for real legislative attempts to prevent this from happening have already started saying it's too soon after the tragedy to talk about such a thing, which is nonsense for several reasons, including that the U.S. averages one mass shooting per day, with a "major" one about every two months.

I Was Not Ready to Hear Clinton Talk About Her Loss With Colbert, but Here We Are

It has been a rough few months since November 9, 2016. W weren't too happy about the election results, and we were in the good company of about 65 million U.S. voters (give or take), despite how many times we've heard that the person they voted for should just "go away." As much as I disagree with that stance, I also was not quite ready for her to go on The Late Show and talk about her loss.

President Obama’s “Anger Translator” Returns to Cathartically Mock GOP Trumpcare Failure With Stephen Colbert

The republican effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act fell apart yesterday when it was too cruel for some Republican members of the Senate and not cruel enough for others. Naturally, as the ACA was President Obama's signature piece of legislation—one Republicans gleefully attached his name to and made it their mission to erase—he has some thoughts that can only be expressed through Keegan-Michael Key's brilliant anger translator character.

Everyone Needs to Watch Andy Serkis Read Donald Trump’s Tweets as Gollum

Nasty punditses.

Andy Serkis is an incredible performer who's brought some excellent characters to life both directly on the screen and in motion-capture performances we'll probably never forget, like Lord of the Rings' Gollum. You probably also remember that Gollum had a rather specific way of talking, and on The Late Show, Serkis put that to use on someone else who has a fairly recognizable voice, whether aloud or in text: Donald Trump.

Colbert Is Right: Trump’s Behavior Is More Than Just a Symptom of Bad Politics

Yesterday, Donald Trump unleashed a vicious personal attack on Morning Joe's Mika Brzezinski, but as much as it was nothing out of the ordinary for Trump, it's still important to recognize that it matters. That's because Trump's rise and the normalization of his behavior isn't just a symptom of what's wrong with politics—he's the driving force behind the problem.

The healing power of burning money.

Gwenyth Paltrow's lifestyle brand, Goop, depending on your level of gullibility, is known for hawking plenty of nonsense or some very valuable personal wellness products.

Donald Trump Came for Stephen Colbert, and Wow Did He Miss

About a year ago, Stephen Colbert had some choice insults for—what? Oh, I'm hearing that was only last week, and news about FBI Director Comey's firing has rendered time meaningless—Donald Trump. He got a bit on the vulgar side, which got him into some trouble, but in trying to join the pile on, Donald Trump himself will probably not achieve the affect he desired.
