    Stephen Colbert took over as host of The Late Show on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015. Colbert is best known for his work as a television host, writer, actor, and producer, and best known for his charity work teaching English as a second language on Tunisian date farms. Prior to joining the CBS family -- and being officially adopted by network president Les Moonves -- Colbert helmed “The Colbert Report,” which aired nearly 1,500 episodes and required Stephen to wear nearly 1,500 different neckties. The program received two Peabody Awards, two Grammy Awards, and several unwelcome shoulder massages. It won two Emmys for Outstanding Variety Series in 2013 and 2014, both of which appear to have been lost in the move. Colbert is pronounced koʊlˈbɛər, according to Wikipedia. His understudy is William Cavanaugh, who will be hosting The Late Show approximately one third of the time. Good luck, Bill!"

    Man, what's wrong with us. I watched that Kanye interview and he's just wanting to help people with certain things he struggled with growing up. Isn't that what we're supposed to do? Too try and help make the world a better place.

    Wow, why did they let him do that interview? Something is wrong, I can get what he saying in general, but he has incoherent thoughts which are a sign of mental illness. He doesn’t have anything to back up his “ideas”. He sounds manic and needs help.

    I want the public to look at this interview from the point that this is not a human speaking, but a Demon a spiritual being trying to act HUMAN. Then you will understand this in a better light. Don't look at the flesh, Hear the Spirit speaking.....it is SCARY! They want more authority and Power over all of us!

    Take any part of Kanye's rant (or the whole thing) and close your eyes and imagine Donald Trump saying it from behind the podium. You can actually do it. That's scary.

    Poor Kanye. He honestly appears to be manic. The pressured speech, the wandering subjects ideas, and feeling of grandiosity, it all seems to point towards a manic phase of bipolar disorder. I really wish people in his camp would help him instead of just being “yes” men.

    If you put Kayne and Trump together you might get one coherent line in oh say 4 hours. Maybe.

  • daddyrichten
    daddyrichten 4 months ago

    The funny thing is that Kanye may look crazy, and Cobert ridiculed Kanye, but the reality of these two guys is that Kanye really wants to help, and Colbert couldn't care less about people and just wants to make punch line of everything.

    They added a laugh track over Kanye when he's talking. It makes it look like the audience is laughing at him like he's crazy. If you watch the original you get a very different impression.

    We are living in very strange times. When I came up, we took action in any form necessary. The 60's was an activist decade. The 20 teens are overrun with pussified lunatics rambling on about psycho-babble that is self-absorbed and arrogance multiplied by one thousand. Hey Kanye, the way this works is, you go on TV to brag about success and the millions you have earned. You don't brag about being a failure who blew 53 million dollars and not man enough to own it. What a piece of shit you are.

    Uma lastima o que ele disse. Tem efeitos em varios paises como Brasil em que o movimento negro unificado ainda luta por direitos iguais na vida real. / A pity what he said. It has effects in several countries like Brazil in which the unified black movement still fights for equal rights. Actually he is one of the guys that hangs out in the other side of the fence for so long, he becomes a frustrated version of himself. We must embrace who we are and where we really came from, dig in to the real history of our people and find our dignity there and tell our kids so they reject the sign of exclusion and inferiority, recognize the injustice, fight to achieve the change on school history including the real history of African people and their great contribution to society and make them recognize the holocaust of the slavery and bring more people from all groups to this understanding and systematic Racism(structural and institutionalized) ideology that was though thru in a Berlin Conference, to justify those atrocities, because tomorrow those atrocities can happen again if we are not careful and most of all never give fuel to justify or perpetuate the excuses other group finds to justify such atrocities.
