>>YES, YES.>>VERY CLEAR, YES.>>STEPHEN: GOOD TO KNOW. WHILE DEBATING THE RESOLUTION,

OR THE PRESIDENT. HE’S ALLOWED TO BE THERE FOR
THE. HEARINGS. CAN YOU IMAGINE PRESIDENT TRUMP
BEING IN THE ROOM? (AS TRUMP)
“OBJECTION! I AM NOT THAT BOY’S FATHER! ( LAUGHTER )
I’M SORRY, WHAT AM I ACCUSED OF TODAY?”çó
I’M SORRY. I’M SORRY, ERIC. ( LAUGHTER )
AFTER THE VOTE WAS OVER, THE NATIONAL REPUBLICAN
CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE THOUGHT; WACKY POLITICAL PRANK, SO THEY
SENT SOME DEMOCRATS “MOVING BOXES.” YOU KNOW, BECAUSE YOU’RE GOING
TO HAVE TO MOVE OUT OF YOUR OFFICES BECAUSE OF THIS VOTE. BUT BECAUSE THE BOXES LOOKED
LIKE SUSPICIOUS PACKAGES, CAPITOL POLICE WERE CALLED TO
INVESTIGATE. GUYS, PRANKS SHOULD BE ORIGINAL
AND CLEVER. YOU’VE GOT TO THINK OUTSIDE THE
BOX. YOU JUST THOUGHT “BOX.” ( LAUGHTER )
NOW, ALL THESE G.O.P. CONGRESS MEN HAVE A SMALL PROBLEM OTHER
THAN BEING ON THE TERROR WATCH LIST NOW. IT’S — WHAT’S THE WORD —
EVIDENCE. WE KEEP GETTING MORE OF IT. TODAY, WE LEARNED THAT RIGHT
AFTER TRUMP HUNG UP HIS PERFECT PHONE CALL, ONE PERSON LISTENING
IN, LIEUTENANT COLONEL ALEXANDER VINDMAN, FILED A COMPLAINT WITH
A WHITE HOUSE LAWYER. THAT LAWYER SAW THE THREAT,
SPRUNG INTO ACTION, AND HID THE TRANSCRIPT ON A CLASSIFIED
SERVER. AND IT’S A COVER-UP! LET’S TELL HIM WHAT HE’S WON. AN ALL-YOU-CAN-TELEVISE
IMPEACHMENT HEARING! A TRIAL IN THE WORLD-FAMOUS
CAPITAL BUILDING! AND, A FREE HELICOPTER RIDE OUT
OF WASHINGTON, ON MARINE ONE. “MARINE ONE: RIDE AWAY IN SHAME
IN STYLE!” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
NOW, THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THAT SECOND TIME IS ALWAYS A
GOOD ONE. ( PIANO RIFF )
THIS SECRET SERVER THE TRANSCRIPT GOT STUFFED IN IS
KNOWN AS “NICE,” WHICH STANDS FOR N.S.C. INTELLIGENCE
COLLABORATION ENVIRONMENT. YOU CAN’T MAKE THE FIRST LETTER
OF AN ACRONYM REPRESENT ANOTHER ACRONYM. ( LAUGHTER )
THAT’S WHAT I CALL “FAVS.” WHICH STANDS FOR “FUBAR,” “AND,”
“VERY,” “STUPID.” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) ( PIANO RIFF )
ACRONYM. I’VE GOT TO DO ACRONYM LATER. I GOTCHA. I GOTCHA. GETTING IMPEACHED IS STRESSFUL,
SO, ON TUESDAY, TRUMP BLEW OFF A LITTLE STEAM AT A PRIVATE
FUNDRAISER, WHERE HOUSE REPUBLICANS WHO RAKED IN THE
MOST MONEY GOT A LITTLE EXTRA REWARD: A ROAST FROM PRESIDENT
DONALD TRUMP. MAY NOT SOUND THAT FUN, BUT IT
BROUGHT IN WAY MORE CASH THAN STEPHEN MILLER’S KISSING BOOTH. ( LAUGHTER )
UNHINGE HIS JAW, SWALLOW YOUR WHOLE HEAD. ( LAUGHTER )
IN PARTICULAR, TRUMP SINGLED OUT REPRESENTATIVE STEVE SCALISE,
WHO AS YOU MIGHT RECALL, WAS SHOT AT A CONGRESSIONAL SOFTBALL
GAME A COUPLE OF YEARS BACK. SO, RIPE FOR ROASTING. TRUMP TOLD A STORY ABOUT
SCALISE’S WIFE, WHO HE SAID, “CRIED HER EYES OUT WHEN I MET
HER AT THE HOSPITAL THAT FATEFUL DAY. I MEAN, NOT MANY WIVES WOULD
REACT THAT WAY TO TRAGEDY. I KNOW MINE WOULDN’T.” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) (AS TRUMP)
“THE JOKE IS: MY WIFE HATES MY GUTS. WE’RE IN A TOTALLY LOVELESS
MARRIAGE. SHE’D LEAVE ME BUT SHE’S AFRAID
I’D DEPORT HER. WOMEN, AM I RIGHT? TAKE MY WIFE, PLEASE. OH WAIT, SHE’S NOT HERE.”

  1. what's the impeachable offence? It seems obvious from the 54 : 46 split with just the democrats voting on it that there's not really a case to go on

  2. 0:56 – WOw So True, reporter was looking for a cozy response. We need to see Colbert as US President, Comedian with great energy, not some Blue Deck Bluff.

  3. I've never seen a more cancerous and binary argument format for political discourse than this show. You leave out such important details in order to configure your argument into a monologue, that you actually convince so many of these stupid people in the comments to believe everything you say as pure truth. I'm by no means a Trump Supporter, but I'm so sick of this country's intelligence being watered down with the autistic dribble that is shows such as these.

  4. The GOP would happily sell the USA off to Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia (no wait, they already did the last one) sd long as they think it will get them what they want, or at least keep them in power a little bit longer.

  5. I was honestly surprised that not a single republican voted for impeachment… only Amash, who became an Independent after reading the Mueller Report.

  6. First of all, Stephen Colbert is a pedophile along with most of Hollywood and this is why they all pretend to hate him. They don't hate him, they FEAR HIM, for good reasons.

    Trump promised to cancel President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan, that would have destroyed the US economy even further.

    He withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Accord because its another scam to fill the Globalist pockets with “CARBON TAX.”

    He approved the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, and open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to exploration.

    He fulfilled all of those pledges.

    On trade, he kept his promise to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and impose tariffs on steel and aluminum.

    He also committed to renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement and the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement

    And recently signed new deals with Mexico, Canada and South Korea.

    He committed to imposing tariffs on China to force it to open its markets and stop its theft of intellectual property — and is following through on that pledge.

    Trump is still in the process of building the wall and repealing Obamacare despite a Tsunami of irrational Democratic/Socialist opposition.

    Trump kept his promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, something his three immediate predecessors also promised yet failed to do.

    He promised to “crush and destroy ISIS,” and two years later he is on the verge of eliminating Islamic State’s caliphate.

    Lookup in the Koran what the Caliphate is and how it has been responsible for the death of 240,000,000 non Muslims and the enslavement of 1,250,000 WHITE PEOPLE and 11,000,000 Africans.

    Trump promised to impose a travel ban on countries that he saw as posing a terrorist threat, and after several false starts the final version of his ban was upheld by the Supreme Court.

    Please, please do some real research!

    I haven’t even begun to tell you about the “”inside”” INTEL about the US being in DEFCON 3 just before Trump winning the election and how it immediately fell to DEFCON 5 after he won!

    There were Russian Subs on the east coast and Chinese Subs on the west coast just waiting for Hillary to be elected.

    We were saved from the GLOBALIST WORLD WAR THREE!!!

    You never heard of the GLOBALISTS, nor Central Bankers, nor the
    Trilateral Commission, or the so-called Counsel on Foreign Relations?

    Trump and Putin did not want their countries destroyed.

    Please do some deductive reasoning.

  7. Why does the Democratic party seem to be that one "Ex" that is trying to find any kind of dirt to give you a social stigma, while at the same time keying your car, driving crazily 3 cars behind you, making 3A.M. phone calls, multiple times, from an Unknown number just to hang up as soon as you answer.

  8. Nixon will be remembered as the greater patriot, and better president. When he stepped down before impeachment and said also that the, "…American people need to know that their president is not a crook".

  9. Lol democrats are crazy first the fake democratic created Russian collusion lol you people are thick he was trying to find out if biden was corrupt lol u guys are aiding and abetting bidens corruption you stupid Americans lol

  10. Americans are so stupid they believe fake news and propaganda u finally have a president putting Americans first and not a someone selling you out and your unhappy all because the elitist owned msm tells you too lol soo stupid

  11. Republicans could've voted for the inquiry while retaining their position that the President has committed no crimes. It could've gone something like, "While we believe this inquiries will prove both a waste of time and taxpayer money, we see no reason to interfere with the process. When the inquiries turn up nothing, the vote for impeachment will not pass if it is even brought to the floor at all."

    It's like having your cake and eating it too. You get to appear pro-justice all the while not participating in any of the process, letting your opponents look like fools.

    Unless, that is, you already suspect there's something or several somethings which need to remain hidden from the public…

  12. Why do you people watch this crap because it is pushed on you, he is not funny, he is just there to brainwash you while calling it entertainment.

  13. Come on Colbert it's not nice to get your half wit audience all excited about an impeachment that will never happen.

  14. Trump is terrified of Stephen Colbert and his show. They humiliate him and his imbeciles with stylish ease. When he's dead and gone, they'll still have his stupid adult kids to mock.

  15. "…I mean,not many wives would react that way to tragedy. I know mine wouldn't."
    Yeah, because we know she wouldn't care less.

  16. IMPEACHMENT, witch hunt, cult when a treasonous President demands a foreign government interfere in a U.S. election.

  17. Gotta hand it to the Trump fans – at least they're consistent. When Clinton lied, they were all screaming for his head. When Trump lies and lies and lies and breaks laws, they all scream for Trump to let them give him head.

  18. George Washington turned over in his grave multiple times since Trump became president
    However, if this keeps up, he's probably going to come back as a zombie and wreak havoc.

  19. the vindictiveness and arrogance of these people in positions of influence actually makes me puke. The witch hunt which may in fact remove Trump from office began before he was inaugurated, and tells the world a lot about the state of American society.

    The hatred that we see manifested, and the accompanying violence against any who would oppose the new socialist ideology is mind boggling. Ann Coulter got it right with the heading of her book "Adios America".

    Should Trump resign? Probably so; not because of wrong doing, but because the American people (for the most part) are not worthy of decent people in office.

  20. Colbert is a fucking joke.
    Not funny.
    Factually inaccurate.
    Reliant on bad writers and an abiding crowd to the commands of the screen telling them to boo or laugh.
    Pathetic.

  21. ENOUGH OF THIS LYING PIECE OF $HIT WE ALL KNOW FOR A FACT IS mr tRump !
    IMPEACH, INDICT, AND L O C K H I M U P ! ! !
    We are all looking forward to the day when America is not a mobster led country once again.

  22. Impeachmet 😂😂👍This will be the political end of Pelosi – amd no one cares. I'm sure, Trump is going to be the next president. Greetings from Germany. But I think, USA needs a younger generation in politics

  23. USA: The Nationals won the World Series.
    Rest of World: No, the Nationals won a national series.
    USA: aahhh?
    Rest of World: Yip, that's all it is.

  24. Nunes why is he even allowed to talk ? …and WHY for the love of GOD do people VOTE for idiots treasonous F***s like him?

  25. Fake History, how about the Real History, Hilary under Obama, State Department Server was in her house in New York, and Bleached 33,000 state department E-mails???? Hypocrites indeed!!!
    Trump 2020!!!!

  26. On a lighter note. That was Sue Palka from (local) FOX 5 . She does the weather. Why was she interviewing drunk Nats fans?! Oh, and she handled it sooo professionally.😲😉

  27. Jesus. Faced with stone cold verified proof of Trump breaking the Constitution, the entire Republican party just proved they have no integrity. No honor. Not even a love for the USA. I will never vote GOP ever again.

  28. This country isn't impeaching a damn thing.
    We are almost at the next moron cycle as it is.
    Time to vote for yet another outright failure who is willing to stand in front of a camera and lie their ass off.
    But go ahead and cling to the lunacy. It's cute seeing so much false hope built in the minds of those incapable of thinking on their own.
    Impeachment…. HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!! Funniest 3.8 year long running joke in my opinion.

  29. You baby murdering, gun grabbing, homosexual placating dems are in for a shock. Trump's not going ANYWHERE. Haaaaaaaaaa.

  30. Now it goes public Schiff is going to fail miserably, even worse than the Mueller conspiracy theorists. Obama and Biden should really fear the cross-examinations.
    Dear Desperate Democrats, look for another 25 candidates soon and hope there is one credible person among them, because these nonsense investigations are not working.

  31. I cant wait … one day this idiot will regret trashing President Trump. Maybe he should Leave America and his ass be left with all ISSIS terrorist.

  32. Republican Nunez is right A cult, grp of ppl loyalty following their leader as he bounces from one conspiracy theory to another. 🤔 who does that remind me of…

  33. So everybody will know who to blame once they impeach Trump and the economy suddenly turned South and everybody loses their job and their home and their living on the streets, who you going to blame Trump? Trump the only thing that's holding the Democrats back right now or will it be in a recessionbecause every time that's Democrats get control of the house we go into recession shortly after they've had time to pass laws.

  34. "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
    ~Abraham Lincoln

  35. If they didn't jail Reagan for selling nukes to the Iranians
    Didn't jail Carter for phony construction contracts
    Didn't jail Bush for phony war contracts
    Didn't jail Clinton for insider trading
    I don't think they have much of a chance we're getting rid of trump for a phone call

  36. remember when colbert used to be funny? no? well it’s true! he was on a comedy show called the daily show which no longer exists

  37. Win or loose in 2020 I will NEVER forget the faces of Hillary’s supporters on election night 2016…..Priceless!!!!!

  38. Sadly, for many on the right, there is no amount of logic or reason that will sway them from their loyalty to party and cult. All evidence can be twisted to "prove" them right, and anything that can't is obviously lies and Fake News from the Deep State et al, probably paid for by Soros. And no amount of arguing on forums like these will sway any of them, because sources like Sean Hannity and Laura Ingrahm are "legitimate" and "accurate" to them.

  39. Colbert will realize he made a judgement error when he turns 60. Right now he hasnt the mental maturity to understand .

  40. People will believe what they want to. You can all come on here and pat each other on the back for your various insults of our leader, but I find it nauseating that you are all doing this while sitting in a resplendent oasis, where jobs and commerce are at an all time high and unemployment and welfare are at an all time low. Now all you people want to do is get rid of the president that did it all of that. You have nothing, no facts to beat, so you people just continue saying lies as if the are true, you are all truly deranged. Mindless sycophants who would rather see our country fall into ruin than admit Trump's is not that bad.
