    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!"

    You put audience laughter behind anything and it’ll make it funny i guess😒 These shows got people so hypnotized that it’s lowkey sad at this point. That man said “Picasso is dead” and then the audience laughed like wtf? That’s creepy if you ask me.

    Wow kanye is bold enough to express himself in ways not everyone will understand. picasso is dead? oh yeah! it was automatically dismissed because would be colbert fans didn't think about it anymore than a statement rather than figurative language. i dont even think the slander is genuine of course because its a tv show where money and ratings are the backbone of what is shown. colbert and trump could be friends for all we know.

    "This guy's got passion and confidence and wants to figure out a way to have a positive impact on humanity. What a lunatic. He needs medication."
    I don't like Kanye's music, and you might think he's stupid or crazy, but you have to admit that his heart is in the right place. He just doesn't articulate his points very clearly, but you have to ramble a little bit to put your thoughts in order. (Which makes his openness an even more admirable trait, in my opinion.) He's willing to speak freely, without forethought about what people will say about him. If more people had the confidence to let themselves appear foolish, I think we could all make more progress individually and collectively, connect with each other more deeply, and consequently cooperate better as a species. Kanye can be hard to follow, but if you think he doesn't know what he's talking about, it might just be that you don't know what he's talking about.

    Kanye is a troll, he knows exactly what he is doing.He wants to get reactions and responses from people by behaving uncharacteristicly and saying things that most people dont want to say in fear of looking stupid.

    I don’t think it’s right that he’s sitting here making a mockery out of mental health. I had a breakdown last year around the same time Kanye did and people couldn’t understand me and my broken sentences, but they didn’t take it as a joke either. It’s a shame what Media finds to be funny 😞

    Trump has taken this,nation to the gutter. IMPEACH TRUMP PENCE NIW.
    Trump represents everyone who wanrs,this nation destroyed. But hey, when the Market dropped like Mic night at the Apollo , that was a,taste of things to come.
    As a white woman, 71, I am appalled that there are people who support a,g.d rapper- a no talent who couldn't rap or actually sing, married to a breeder with all her brains in her ass. Like Trump.

    Running thoughts. Ppl with bi polar depression often have running thoughts. Theres a few different types of manic depression I think his would be the ersonality disorder whichever that is ike a or B cant remember so google it its real. Its not really that big of a deal though. Many people have had some sort of pts or depression along with suicidal thoughts in their lives if theyve lived long enough. But what I find amusing is LIBERALS making fun of kanye for being crazy? Thats fucking ironic. Half you libtards are narcissists and the other half are bandwagon lazy stupid people. Make fun of kanye for how he acts in front of the president but really? How do you act? And 0.1% of you are actually smart.

    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.

  • Birdsong
    Birdsong 11 months ago

    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!
