“Stephen Colbert” is Back!

It may have only been for a brief moment, but "Stephen Colbert" made his triumphant return to television last night.

Truthiness has to feel true, but Trumpiness doesn't even have to do that. In fact, many Trump supporters don't believe his wildest promises, and they don't care. [...] Truthiness was from the gut, but Trumpiness clearly comes from much further down the gastrointestinal tract. [...]

I believe Donald Trump is a leader for our times; an emotional mega-phone for voters full of rage at a government that achieves nothing, an economic system that leaves them behind, and politics that elects people unfit for the job. And if you don't share their feeling that you don't recognize your country anymore, trust me, if Trump wins -- you will.


  • I do miss him BUT I was very puzzled by the skit where he went off on Hillary about the emails. There’s plenty to go off on Hillary about but that ain’t it.

    Gods, I miss him.

    These legitimately angry voters don’t need a leader to say things that are true, or feel true. They need a leader to feel things that feel feels.
