Hollywood keeps bringing their agenda to the forefront, this time with popular late night host Stephen Colbert depicting White House advisor Stephen Miller’s head on a spike, in a series of “Game of Thrones” jokes.
Miller’s name began making headlines as he appeared on the media to defend the presidency on immigration and other policies, stating that he would appear on “any show, anywhere, anytime, and repeat it, and say the president of the United States is correct, 100 percent.”
In a short segment, Colbert called Miller out, and stated to the audience that Miller has to come on the show, otherwise Colbert will refer to him “as a liar,” and if he does come on the show, Colbert will call him “a liar to his face.”
This series of attacks from Hollywood stars is nothing new. Breitbart says:
As it were, going full-fledged anti-Trump has worked well for Colbert’s ratings. Having never topped his late-night competitor Jimmy Fallon, the CBS funnyman has bested The Tonight Show host in total viewers for two straight weeks, according to ratings released on Tuesday.
Indeed, it was more of the same across the late-night spectrum on Monday night.
TBS joker Conan O’Brien cracked a pun in which he made Bannon out to be a Nazi sympathizer.
“Crazy story: At an international tennis match, U.S. officials accidentally played the Nazi national anthem. Yeah, White House adviser Steve Bannon was outraged, and said, ‘We’re not rolling that out till August. C’mon, supposed to be a surprise!’” O’Brien joked.
Elsewhere, Jimmy Fallon lampooned Education Secretary Betsy DeVos as dim-witted and dense after her department’s official Twitter account posted a tweet that misspelled the name of W. E. B. DuBois.
“Colbert has been experiencing a bit of a surge as of late, and like Saturday Night Live’s resurgence, he has President Trump to thank for that,” vice president and director of programming research at Amplifi US Billie Gold toldVariety. “While Fallon will likely take the reign back in future weeks and win the season in all viewer metrics, in this politically-charged climate, Colbert’s numbers will definitely be recharged.”
