Jon Stewart: The old Jon Stewart talked about politics and things like that. Me, I don't... Jeb Bush will be a great nominee. Everything will be fine.
Stephen Colbert: Jon, it's not Jeb. I'm gonna tell you who the candidate is.
Jon Stewart: Before you tell me, though, I'm a little parched. If I may.
Stephen Colbert: Oh, you want to take a little tea in your mouth?

Hateful
7 March 2017 | by wjdwright-47985See all my reviews

I don't even know where to begin. I have always liked Stephen Colbert, but, all his show is about is Trump, and how he hates Trump. This may have been funny once in a while, but, that is all he does. It's boring. Everyone is on the hate train and it is unnecessary, useless, and people are starting to get tired of it. If a show makes me uncomfortable, irritable, and unhappy, then I turn it off. There is enough negativity in this world. What most people want is someone to make them laugh and feel good. Stephen, you should pay attention. Right now all you have is an audience that is hand picked Trump haters, and, your viewing audience is also Trump haters. I know the applause feels good, but, it won't last if this is all you have to offer. I can watch MSNBC in the morning if I want to start my day negatively, I really didn't want to end my day the same way. I have decided to turn you off and MSNBC off. I don't want your stress and unhappiness in my life.
