Stephen Colbert Unloads On Trump For Lying About Obama and Cages


Stephen Colbert does find a wonderful way to weave political commentary and comedy together, but he was more somber than usual, when speaking on this topic.

Here’s what NPR says that happened.

“The Obama administration did not do that, no. We did not separate children from their parents,” former Obama domestic policy adviser Cecilia Muñoz told NPR in May 2018. “This is a new decision, a policy decision put in place by the attorney general,” which Muñoz said “puts us in league with the most brutal regimes in the world’s history.”

It was then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions who instituted the “zero tolerance” policy at the Southern border in April 2018, which resulted in children being separated from their parents who were taken into custody for criminal prosecution.

The family separation policy is Trump’s worst, in an administration of non stop gaffes and stupid policies. Here he is dramatically stopping his own child separation policy, and now he’s trying to gaslight people that he’s actually stopping an Obama policy here. My God.

A federal judge allowed a lawsuit challenging the policy last June, and Trump issued an executive order ending it.

Still, as NPR’s Domenico Montanaro wrote last year, the Trump administration has been unwilling to take the blame for the policy of family separations because of the political optics.

They emphatically do not want the optics. But the facts are, Sessions implemented the separation in April, 2018, Trump ended it in June, 2018, and now he’s blaming Obama? Oh, Please.

We live in very strange times with a congenital, serial-liar is in the Oval Office.

There simply is no name or word obscene enough to properly describe tRump. What a hateful, despicable piece of trash. A lying liar, a 4king 4ker. I can’t wait for him to get what he deserves for all the misery he’s caused. Instant karma would be a blessing to all of us who are watching this nightmare play out. A well-aimed lightning bolt would be welcome, if anyone up there is listening.


How can you even reply to what we read and hear about this evil hitler wanna be destroying this country from seniors to children. Hey you bigoted red neck pieces of shit. You are disgracing our Jesus. Have you read your bible? We are all equal in his eyes. Where do you think your better. Cuz Dumphf says you are. He is a liar..cheat. And probably in the devils arms right now. Mentally Ill and you will throw away your place in heaven for him. I will not see you in hell. But he will

I find the caustic bile in this cretin making for bad days everywhere … even right leaning are having tough times because tRump has become their flagship icon. Colbert is our hero … verbally, and physically, he takes on tRump without effort because he is so sharp about many things going on in DC, as well as the WH Dotard … when the truth speaks so loudly, AG Barr’s example of blatant cover for DJT, in spite of millions of dollars spent for Mueller’s Report, AND millions of people wanting specifics from the report … Barr, under direct questioning from… Read more »
