Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.
Thursday, January 17, 2019

Every once in a while, even Stephen Colbert will feel obliged to take a fellow liberal to the woodshed (but only if the spanking is funny). Sensitive as he is to bluster, the Late Show host couldn’t help but notice when a certain MSNBC anchor overhyped the evening’s featured segment.

Certainly the story was news, reported by an outstanding and trusted journalist — as proved by the viral coverage that followed. But did it merit a 20-minute buildup? Was there a feeling of anti-climax at the conclusion?

Colbert was hardly alone in thinking so — but at least he wrung a few good laughs from this episode.

    Admittedly my wife and I delayed having our dinner to see what Rachael Maddow had on Trumps tax return. Hurry up Rachael I’m getting hungry and my dinner is getting cold

    Love Rachael Maddow – but I have to agree – it drove me insane waiting for her to get to the POINT of the whole thing! I kept yelling at the TV 🙂 saying “hurry up.” I seriously considered tweeting her and asking her to get to the point! Do love her though.

    Ouch……..That imitation has got to sting. Yeah, Rachael does tend to stretch things out.

    rachael maddow, unlike a certain man who happens to be president,can take jokes and ribbing..she does often have long stories to tell, but they do lead to the point she is trying to make-makes her different than a lot of others with politically charged talk shows-she used the information she was provided, which was not much,to get peoples attention..the fact is, she even admitted this was only one years basic 2 page tax return, and not the complete one which would show business interests and charitable contributions..at least she tried to get something out there..what the public wants, but i am sure will never get, is a release of all trumps tax forms from say, around 1975 and those including bankruptcies, etcetera..i, for one, will continue to watch rachael, as she has the courage to bring out stories that should be heard, and she does explain her sources..i say, you go gir!..and yes, I also love mr Colbert and his satire…

    I, too, love Rachel, but Colbert did a fabulous job of parodying her. He even had her typical gestures speech cadences down pat so there was no mistake as to who he was poking fun at.

    I love Rachel, I watch her every day but she tends to get too wordy sometimes. It’s her style and I’m accustomed to it. I like that she doesn’t bullsh*t and when she makes an error she will come back and apologize or correct her statement.

    Remember, all words are important and the Trump Russian involvement is extremely complicated and requires much investigation with many facts that don’t seem relevant on their face but she is making sense of it all. We are people who want to rush everything but sometimes little things matter. We’d all like it to be solved NOW but with Trump enjoys many resources to keep things hidden. Thankfully, investigative journalists are tenacious and willing to spend the time.

    If you have sat through one too many of those 22 minute monologues, you should thank Colbert. I sat through the tax return monlogue, and, at the end was reminded of the line about an elephant loudly in labor, giving birth to a mouse.

    I’ve earned $104,000 last year by doing an on-line job a­n­d I was able to do it by working in my own time f­o­r several hrs a day. I’m using an earning model I came across from this website i found online and I am amazed that I was able to earn so much extra income.
