Left-wing smart aleck Stephen Colbert has a pretty high opinion of himself. According to the late-night host, his brand of leftist humor is sure to do one thing: make you think.
Colbert, who has many times compared Donald Trump to Nazis, told CBS This Morning Friday:
"But as my mom used to say, 'You can't laugh and be afraid at the same time.'"
Therefore, according to the former Comedy Central newsman:
"If you can laugh, then you can think. And we've got to think our way out of this because we felt our way into this problem with fear and anger.”
Of course, the "this" "we" have to laugh our way out of is the presidency of Donald Trump. Colbert apparently sees himself as a "way out":
“But if we can laugh... I think we can think our way into being an American community again.”
So, we aren't a community right now, because of Trump? What about the most divisive president in history, Barack Hussein Obama?
Co-host Gayle King spoke some sense into Colbert's "community" insanity -- about his new anti-Trump animated program for Showtime, Our Cartoon President, she observed:
“Half the country is going to think it’s great. Another half is going to be very angry and upset.”
Furthermore, King raised a good question:
“I’m wondering are you concerned about how this is going to open the door against you by so many different people?”
It isn't likely. For all his talk about thinking, that seems to be one thing Stephen Colbert isn't very fond of.
