On Tuesday, Variety published an interesting interview with late-night TV host Stephen Colbert. Colbert mainly spoke about his show’s favorite target, President Trump
Colbert first spoke about his show and how big of a “TV star” Donald Trump has become over the past year.
“We are storytellers: The story we are telling is what happened on television this year. It’s not a political monologue, but you can’t keep politics out of it, because politics was the biggest TV story this year. The biggest story of the year is not ‘Westworld.’ It’s not ‘The Handmaid’s Tale.’ It’s not Milo Ventimiglia’s luscious abs. That’s not what we cared about The biggest TV star of the year is Donald Trump.”
Colbert then spoke about the best way to “stop” President Trump.
“Comedy will not stop him. The democratic process- that’s it. The democratic process will stop this guy. It’s the only way. That’s it. “
Colbert also took a shot at the Republican Party.
“For the Republican Party to grow a pair. Just drop a ’nad, and do what you know is right. And that won’t happen until they lose the House or the Senate. And then, ‘Katie bar the door.’”
Stephen Colbert is the host of CBS’s “The Late Show.”
