So, we’ve heard the audio of the secret recording between Donald Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen, but now there’s video?

Well, at least a video made by Stephen Colbert and The Late Show team.

The late night show has crafted their own comedic video accompaniment to the real 2016 recording aired by CNN on Tuesday. 

In the audio clip, Trump and Cohen discuss a payment for Playboy model Karen McDougal’s story, in which she claimed she had an affair with Trump in 2006. 

In 2016, the Wall Street Journal revealed that American Media — which owns the pro-Trump National Enquirer — bought the rights to the model’s story for $150,000, but didn’t publish it. Read more…

TwitterFacebook

Stephen Colbert has held a “presidential intervention” after the week’s hootenanny of events featuring Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin.

After brutally roasting Trump’s ‘double negative’ defense on Wednesday after that press conference, Colbert spent Thursday’s opening monologue on Trump’s invitation to Putin to visit the White House in the fall for another summit.

Fed up, the Late Show host staged a little intervention for the president, beginning with Trump’s questioning of the United States’ commitment to defending all NATO allies. Read more…

Trump-Putin press conference gets a roasting from late show hosts

TwitterFacebook

President Donald Trump’s rather disturbing joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin was always going to be skewered by late-night hosts.

And they did not disappoint.

Following the presidents’ double address in Helsinki on Monday, The Daily Show‘s Trevor Noah didn’t hold back. Before the show, the team pointed out what Russia and America both got out of the summit:

What Russia got:
– total capitulation from Trump
– exoneration for past meddling
– permission to meddle in future

What America got: pic.twitter.com/n4BTIvRzf0

Stephen Colbert questions James Franco over sexual misconduct accusations

TwitterFacebook

James Franco was pressed for answers by Stephen Colbert on The Late Show on Tuesday, following accusations of sexual misconduct since his Golden Globe win.

The Disaster Artist star was interviewed by the talk show host, broadcast mere hours after The New York Times cancelled a TimesTalks event with Franco scheduled for Wednesday. 

A public supporter of the Time’s Up movement against systemic sexual abuse in Hollywood and other industries, Franco wore one of the widely publicized pins to the Globes on Sunday. But during and after the ceremony, in which Franco won a Golden Globe for Best Actor for his role in The Disaster Artist, several women posted accusations of sexual misconduct on Twitter. Read more…

Stephen Colbert grilling Oliver Stone about Putin is excruciating to watch

TwitterFacebook

It shouldn’t be surprising in this current political climate that Oliver Stone’s four-part Showtime series about Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, hasn’t had the warmest of receptions.

Stephen Colbert is more known for his quips, but a meeting with Stone on The Late Show on Monday proved too irresistible for the host. Colbert asked the director if he was “cosying up” to what some would call a dictator.

“You know, you have to be polite because this was a two-year deal, and it was four times, and I was with him numerous times,” Stone explained.

Colbert admittedly hadn’t watched the series yet, but asked Stone what would surprise him about Putin when watching it. Read more…
