Stephen Colbert Thinks Donald Trump Needs the Weekend Off

It’s almost surreal to watch Stephen Colbert go off on Donald Trump.  It’s not because of the fact that he’s a late night talk show host who is doing is job and that’s what he has to do.  It’s because the material he works with just doesn’t seem real.  It’s almost as if he’s still on the Daily Show and doing some kind of Colbert report.  But alas, on last night’s show which featured Billy Eichner, Mel B, and Gilbert Gottfried as guests, Colbert read a direct quote on Donald Trump starting his “job” as Potus.  Here’s what it says:

‘The Last Laugh’ Exclusive Trailer: Tribeca Documentary Explores Connection Between Humor and the Holocaust

13 January 2017 1:21 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Holocaust might seem like a topic that’s completely off-limits for comedy, but a new documentary strives to challenge that assumption. “The Last Laugh” examines whether it’s acceptable to use humor in connection with a tragedy of that scale, and the implications for other taboo topics in a society that prizes free speech. Shot on 16mm, it weaves together a portrait of Auschwitz survivor Renee Firestone alongside interviews with comedians like Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman and Gilbert Gottfried. It also features archival material ranging from “Curb Your Enthusiasm” to Jerry Lewis’ never-released film Holocaust comedy “The Day the Clown Cried,” as well as rare footage of cabarets inside the concentration camps themselves. Watch an exclusive trailer from the film below and check out the poster as well.
