Stephen Colbert has always been an obnoxious liberal.
He made his name on Comedy Central by pretending to be a caricature of a conservative.
But Colbert just jumped the shark with his partisan hackery during an interview with disgraced FBI Director James Comey.
“Slippery” James Comey has proven himself to be a self-serving, weasely character. Even Loretta Lynch and members of the FBI fraternity called him out for his unethical behavior and grandstanding.
Democrats like Colbert despised him when he reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, but Colbert recently had Comey on his show and the two were thick as thieves.
Colbert dropped any illusion of being a comedian first. He’s primarily a propaganda implement for the Democratic Party.
From The Daily Wire:
Former FBI Director James Comey, still enjoying his 15 minutes of fame after writing a tell-all book about his feud with President Trump, on Tuesday night called Trump’s presidency “a forest fire.”
Appearing on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” Comey also likened his relationship with Trump to a couple of estranged lovers.
“He’s tweeted at me probably 50 times,” Comey said. “I’ve been gone for a year, I’m like the breakup he can’t get over. He wakes up in the morning … I’m out there living my best life, he wakes up in the morning and tweets at me.”
Colbert, meanwhile, defended Comey’s remarks in the book about the President’s physical appearance. Comey’s reference to the President’s hands and the orange hue of his skin have drawn criticism as low blows,” the New York Post wrote.
Colbert noted that those remarks are a few paragraphs in a book that runs more than 200 pages. Plus, Colbert said, Trump “looks like a microwave circus peanut that someone rubbed on a golden retriever.”
Comey said he was surprised when Trump fired him.
COMEY: I actually was quite surprised, because I thought, ‘I’m leading the Russia investigation.’ Even though our relationship was becoming strained, there’s no way I’m going to get fired or whacked.
COLBERT: Why? Why wouldn’t you get fired?
COMEY: Because that would be a crazy thing to do. Why would you fire the FBI director who is leading the Russia investigation?
COLBERT: Because you’re leading the Russia investigation! I don’t know if you’ve dealt with mob bosses before, but they don’t like to be investigated.
If there were any more evidence needed that Colbert is a left-wing shill, one can’t forget his monologue after the Comey firing when the audience cheered the announcement, and he had to maneuver them into the “correct” position:
