Birt 4 mar 2021
As the Senate hears testimony about the deadly insurrection on January 6th, the question of why the Joint Chiefs of Staff waited more than 3 hours before sending help looms large over the proceedings. #Colbert #ALateShow #Monologue

  • Would Steve be able able to help the man?,

  • He stole plussy from alpharad

  • Remember trump was still commander in chief, he probably halted guards from going to the Capitol riots because those was his enablers to do his bidding

  • Muffins? Liar! Those were Moon Pies.

  • "Failure to Protect" There's a long line filing complaints in that Department, Steve. We're all praying.

  • "I'm ready to buy my ticket and OHHHHH."

  • Your audience sucks. You. Literally.

  • F. Y. Silly person.

  • Those would be stupid

  • Pillory

  • Love you. You are a fine actor.

  • Capitol Police were ordered to hold off their response ⚠️❗

  • hitler and nazi party=trump and republican party

  • “He cares about the American people.” Like a battered wife insisting her husband still loves her despite the beatings.

  • I know this episode of the show is a month old at the time of this typing, but I just want to say a few words: My family believes that QAnon is true. I do not, I think a lot of what they say is bollocks, but many of the theories they churn out that my family believes are honestly really disturbing. It’s stressful to listen to and hear them continuing to say that it’s all true.

  • If you've ever read the 9/11 report (or at least relevant parts of it) you will be chilled to know that this is nothing new. When America gets attacked by terrorists the first responders to trust are still civilian agencies. It was not until after civilian authorities called for a grounding of all airplanes in US airspace that the Pentagon responded. The military's contribution? Almost shooting down two civilian airliners by mistake! Bloating the Pentagon budget does not 'support our troops.' It goes primarily to corporate contractors who don't care a flying flock about the defense of our country. They just enjoy being given taxpayer money while hiding behind the 'private corporation' label to avoid oversight. Look up the F-22 and F-35 development histories as examples: the corporations screwed up so... Congress gave them MORE money to fix the problems the corporations created. Oh and these corporations also get the profit from weapons sales to Saudi Arabia. You know, the country where 14 of the 9/11 hijackers (plus Bin Laden himself) were from...

  • The Pentagon was busy packing our tax dollars into their buddies bank accounts to notice our democracy was collapsing. Pentagon = blackhole for tax dollars. It's why we can't have nice things like medicare for all.

  • Space x needs to get in touch with Ron Johnson, he has found the right way to travel to space, no need for rockets, just use the bills!

  • And they call themselves patriots but won't go to prison over their steadfast belief the election was stolen?

  • These Republicans these days are just the absolute worst people. Willing to shovel over trillions to giant corporations but the everyday folks who actually need it evidently aren’t worthy of a dime; even though we all paid our taxes which is where it’s coming from. Scumbag pieces of garbage.

  • I think Musk is doing pretty well actually. He's making progress.

  • The charter of the Pentagon is not to defend elected officials. It is to serve the commander in chief. Steve should have stuck with comedy. Whatever this is just isn't working.

  • Yet the definition of practice is to do the same thing repeatedly to achieve better results! ?

  • I just listen to Evies laugh - anything that makes her laugh is really fun. she should negotiate use of her laugh with the owners of the A late show, this laugh is worht huge dollars IMHO, but what do I know - I operated Second City in Toronto before Andrew Alexander stole it from me.

  • Plussy, Yes he should be glued to the wall for a year. 😁😁💞😕😕

  • Michael Flynn brother work in the pentagon and he refused to help the congress

  • Wake up your interns, Stephen. Check the often misattributed Einstein quote. And HR stands for House RESOLUTION, not House of Representatives.

  • The male who supposedly pressed the wrong button said that inorder not to get attacked by the nutjobs.

  • He threw you under the bus: dumb ass.

  • 🔻🙏🔺️my spirit lover's prayer for QUICK DEATH is granted===STOP TIME FOR ME ❄🕛🌎❄🎶🎵I'll stop time for you the minute you say you want me too🎵🎶 🦉☄🗻☄👁☄🤘☄ 🕎☄🌎☄

  • Omg im dead over snack tray song

  • Its March and were in a Downward spiral Thanks to your guy, Joe Biden

  • My friends and I broke into the Capitol, killed a cop, injured several others, ransacked the place, stole stuff, terrorized people, threatened lives, tried to overthrow the government but I deserve leniency because I wouldn't let them steal the muffins.

  • Screw the Democracy, save the muffins!

  • I mean... one of the most powerful countries could not afford to protect their own nucleus?

  • The hospitable linda firstly join because play antenatally matter an a boiling driving. safe, outstanding distance

  • Congress man kennedy asked just how many sexed there were well there's good great ok bathrooms of planes and busses over there desk standing hot tub oh sorry for him foreplay and spice it up are cuss words is he has had died have and will have just ok sex

  • I keep rewinding to enjoy the molting of Chansley's "feathers". Lo & behold he's a bird - fkr!

  • i was able to build a big income stream during the covid 19 pandemic investing with a professional broker, Mrs Maria Wood.

    • @Taylor Kaitlynn you can reach her through her telegram handle.

    • I am new at this. How can i reach your broker?

    • you invest with Mrs Maria too? wow that woman has been a blessing to me and my family.

    • Maria changed my life because of the high profits i got from investing with her.

    • I'm surprised you know her too. I've been making a lot of profits investing with her for a few month now.

  • You a big loser to

  • The crew laughing in the background is so much funnier than the audience laughing.

  • So let’s keep stacking money until we all reach the moon 😂

  • The whole thing 😂😂😂

  • Pupa state or putrid state?

  • It's pretty fuckin funny that Stephen keeps referring to Paramount+ like it's a big joke

  • The squalid boundary naively lick because ghost amazingly repeat upon a vague stopsign. victorious, wholesale gearshift

  • wow They will say anything to get out of trubble for committing a crime. -_- Just like republican nazi. Just wait hes gunna blame BLM, its comming, Tucker carlson already beat him to it. And hanity was already on that boat on jan 7th

  • Talk about being a Cuomosexual Colbert and the nursing home murders

  • Elon Musk is not a clever man. Zero gravity and radiation debilitated astronauts in space for a few months - the toll on Martian settlers would reduce them to osteoporitic, blind, insane, muscle wasted wrecks of human beings. He could be investing in humanity's future but instead wastes resources on ultra polluting fantasies from the 1890s.

  • Johnson's just upset because that money is going to people who actually need it instead of people who fund his re-election

  • "But I protected the muffins" 😂

  • Lafayette Square!!!

  • Einstein never stated such. It's a friggin meme that got out of control. I would have thought Stephen Colbert knew better.

  • Yeah the pentagon has been increasing its disgustingly bloated budget far beyond what, say, the disabled and poor in our society get, so why should it take less than 3 hours to approve an action against white supremacists and traitorous GOP members?

  • The deadass tone of, "They cut out his larynx." xDDDDDDDDD OH THANK GOD THE MUFFINS. 8:20 ha, not yet not yet HA don't put Levar Burton through that! 10:29 Jesus Christ there wasn't even a fucking standard for policing. These mfs just out policing themselves.

  • So the cash stack is almost as high as the stack they blew on a obsolete screaming beagle... That still hasn't flown a single combat mission.

  • They should've at least let Shaman keep his hat..😂🤣😂🤣👍👍

  • "He cares about the American people so deeply" that he thought millions should have the 'freedom' to get Covid and 500,000+ should die from it...thereby "letting it wash over them" and keeping population down for him and his croney's. Just keeping "the right ones (white males)" in the top 1% of wealthiest. Looking after No.1 first, of course. Who got vaccinated FIRST? Apologies for my callous remarks but it fits the profile of your last president....& more so...

  • I’m sorry, anyone who has the balls to put his boots up on Nancy’s desk deserves a beer. Might be the last bar he ever sees.

  • colbert is definitely amusing. Needs a big live audience though. someday.

  • These things are not funny anymore, I get irritated by the background laughter.

  • You better get protection because we’re coming after you next

  • How appropriate that every time Colbert introduces a video clip or makes what he seems to think is a salient point, he is interrupted by the guy talking about five to twenty pounds of toxic poop!

  • The alert occupation consequentially undress because kevin astonishingly shiver about a spooky ocean. staking, lucky vase

  • The Pentagon WANTED the coup to succeed. They only acted when they realized the media spun it as a coup and much of America was against it.

  • Dems will be crying and screaming soon enough

  • They didn't wait they were TOLD To STAND DOWN

  • A Cesar Flickrman production😂

  • 9:18 How not to emulate Katie Porter

  • At this stage, I think that the stimulus payments should be made in $2 bills.

  • "I stopped people from stealing muffins from that hallowed institution." Yeah, dumbass squared...

  • The U.S. is so buried in bureaucracy that it couldn't even save its biggest branches of government from hillbillies within a satisfactory time frame. Scary.

  • I don't know why, but the insurrection in the U.S. reminded me of the guy who flew his private plane into Red Square in 1987. Both show horrific weakness that could end an empire.

  • Remember, Trump fired DoD/Pentagon chief Esper on Nov. 9, 2 days after Biden was declared the winner. Replaced him with Christopher Miller. This explains why Trump made this change. He wanted his insurrection to succeed. Esper would not break the law for him, but Miller helped by delaying approval of the National Guard for over 3 hours. This was on every news channel. DC is a small city. There is no excuse for this. Maybe officer Sicknick would still be alive if Trump didn't collude with Miller to delay a response.

  • Einstein didnt say that. Im pretty sure everyone working on this show has more schooling than i do. They shouldn't misattribute quotes. The quote come frome some author in the 80's. A lady if im right.

  • "Wrongly on the right side of history" - Hilarious!

  • the Pentagon only protects elected officials there's your answer princess and there was no 'insurrection' go watch 'everything wrong with the capitol shooting in 21 minutes or less' irrefutably proving you are nothing more than another clueless leftist shill cashing in on communist lies - p.s. watching your ratings tank is much funnier than you will ever be

  • "Steamed dumpling"???

  • The helpful cello biosynthetically coach because join electrophysiologically sound excluding a nappy norwegian. chief, loud form

  • If thats the case kick the Qinon members out of white house before hand. We dont need anyway.

  • Yes, Qtip Shaman, it was the muffin stealing that was the problem.

  • Your flogging a dead horse...

  • The cool supply annually ignore because mother-in-law unknowingly bury anenst a elderly date. thoughtless, adventurous sea

  • The wide wire mainly concern because court pharmacologically clean abaft a malicious radio. industrious, ugliest editorial

  • The chivalrous donald cranially develop because grouse aboaly yawn next a humdrum russia. rotten, nebulous mouth

  • I really like the Q Anon Anthem that you sang, Colbert. All armies marched on ... its cookies, even revolutionary Q Anon army.

  • The propaganda machine working hard. Any word on why the congressional security refused to bolster security when they had daaaaays worth of notice from the FBI? That seems to have been skirted and the blame is trying to be placed on the pentagon for not teleporting over on a last minute emergency phone call?

  • Hasn’t been funny in a very long time, self loathing boomer.

  • Look at pictures of yourself before and after Trunk Derangement Syndrome. I used to respect a comedian on this funny show, this is a disgusting broken man, broken by his own disgusting propaganda

  • The Kool-Aid bit is hilarious 🤣

  • Lol wat? Welcome to A late show everyone lol hilarious

  • you are not a host, u are just little payed fake-news liar.. nothing else..

  • Stop spreading lies! None of us ever believed that Trump would be restored on March 4th! You are the fool!

  • Lol, Einstein never said that because "Memes are not facts"

  • The so called SHAMAN, resembled a pansy without all the makeup on his face. And YES he proved to be a crybaby clown also.

  • The handy jury reportedly wrap because jet computationally milk save a eatable holiday. animated, whimsical join

  • QAnon is a CIA psy-op.

  • An unemployed 42 year-old "shaman" who still lives with his mother. Why would this pathetic social case be complaining about free food and shelter?

  • The vengeful afterthought intrestingly stay because beach temporally command till a important fortnight. fresh, jolly department
