GOP-Controlled Senate Finds Trump Not Guilty, But Mitt Romney Honors His Oath And Votes To Convict


WELCOME, ONE AND ALL. PLEASE HAVE A SEAT. FOLKS, WELCOME ONE AND ALL, IN
HERE, OUT THERE, ALL AROUND THE WORLD TO “THE L “THE LATE SHOW.” IN THE
I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. LET’S GET RIGHT TO IT. THE BIG STORY EVERYONE IS
TALKING ABOUT: A COYOTE AND A BADGER ARE FRIENDS! LOOK, HE’S SAYING, “COME ON,
BUDDY, LET’S GO!” AND THEY’RE OFF ON AN ADVENTURE! THEY’RE TEAMING UP TO FINALLY
TAKE DOWN THAT ROAD RUNNER– UNLESS THE ROAD RUNNER ALSO HA
MADE A FRIEND. MAYBE IT’S A POSSUM. DOESN’T THAT WARM YOUR HEART A
LITTLE BIT? IF THOSE TWO ANIMALS CAN GET
ALONG, MAYBE WE AS AMERICANS, DESPITE OUR DIFFERENCES, CAN
ALSO HAVE A BADGER AS A FRIEND.( LAUGHTER )
WELL, THAT’S ALL FOR TONIGHT. THANKS FOR WATCHING. STAY TUNED FOR JAMES CORDEN! GOOD NIGHT!( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
♪ ♪ ♪>>Stephen: ALL RIGHT, OKAY. I’M SORRY, I’M BEING TOLD
CONTRACTUALLY I’M OBLIGATED TO REMAIN CONSCIOUS AND CONTINUE
TALKING. JUST REMEMBER, THIS NEXT PART
WASN’T MY IDEA. FOLKS, I HOPE YOU’RE SITTING
DOWN, BECAUSE I’VE GOT SOME TERRIBLE NEWS: THE NEWS.( LAUGHTER )
AND I’LL TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT IN THE FINAL INSTALLMENT OF OUR
NOT-LONG-ENOUGH RUNNING SERIES: “DON AND THE GIANT IMPEACH.”>>CONSTITUTION! CONSTITUTION! PERFECT PHONE CALL. PERFECT PHONE CALL. IT’S TRUE. TODAY, THE U.S. SENATE ACQUITTED
DONALD TRUMP. SO THERE IT IS, OKAY. IT’S OFFICIAL: NOTHING MEANS
ANYTHING. RIGHT IS WRONG. UP IS DOWN. MISSOURI IS KANSAS.( LAUGHTER )
NOW WE KNOW THAT ASKING A FOREIGN POWER TO INTERFERE IN
OUR ELECTION IS THE NEW NORMAL. THE DEMOCRATS HAVE NO CHOICE BUT
TO DO THE SAME THING.( AS BERNIE )
“RUSSIA, IF YOU’RE LISTENING. I COULD REALLY USE THAT PEE PEE
TAPE. MILK, MILK, LEMONADE. AROUND THE CORNER, JUSTICE IS
MADE!”( LAUGHTER )
NOW, SENATE REPUBLICANS CLAIM THEY’RE NOT SETTING THE
PRECEDENT THAT PRESIDENTS ARE ABOVE THE LAW, BECAUSE TRUMP IS
GOING TO CHANGE.>>I THINK THAT HE KNOWS NOW
THAT IF HE IS TRYING TO DO CERTAIN THINGS, WHETHER IT’S
FERRETING OUT CORRUPTION THERE, IN AFGHANISTAN, WHATEVER IT IS,
HE NEEDS TO GO THROUGH THE PROPER CHANNELS.>>IF A CALL LIKE THAT GETS YOU
AN IMPEACHMENT, I WOULD THINK HE WOULD THINK TWICE BEFORE HE DID
IT AGAIN.>>I THINK HE’LL BE INSTRUCTED
BY WHAT HAS OCCURRED HERE.>>Stephen: OH, HE’LL BE
INSTRUCTED BY WHAT OCCURRED HERE, BECAUSE NOTHING OCCURRED
HERE.( AS TRUMP )
“YOU KNOW THERE’S A SAYING ABOUT THOSE WHO FAIL TO LEARN FROM
HISTORY. I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS. I FAILED HISTORY.” THE ONLY LESSON TRUMP EVER
LEARNS IS THAT HE GETS AWAY WITH EVERYTHING: MULTIPLE
BANKRUPTCIES– NOTHING. MULTIPLE SEXUAL ASSAULT
ACCUSATIONS– NOTHING. HE’S IN PERFECT HEALTH DESPITE
EATING LIKE A RAT BEHIND THE BOB’S BIG BOY. NOTHING!( LAUGHTER )
THE SENATOR WHO HAS MOST SUCCESSFULLY TALKED HERSELF INTO
BELIEVING THAT SHE BELIEVES IN SOMETHING IS MAINE REPUBLICAN
SUSAN COLLINS, WHO SAID THIS LAST NIGHT SAID THIS:
>>HE WAS IMPEACHED, AND THERE HAS BEEN CRITICISM BY BOTH
REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC SENATORS OF HIS CALL. I BELIEVE THAT HE WILL BE MUCH
MORE CAUTIOUS IN THE FUTURE.>>Stephen: (AS SUSAN COLLINS)
“IN THE FUTURE, HE’LL BE MORE CAUTIOUS AND NOT GET CAUGHT. BY THE WAY, MR. PRESIDENT, IF
YOU NEED HELP GETTING RID OF A BODY, I’M YOUR GIRL. THE SECRET IS REMOVING THE HANDS
AND TEETH, THEN KILLING THE GUY WHO SOLD YOU THE SHOVEL.( LAUGHTER )
THERE’S A REASON THAT THE MASTER OF HORROR STEPHEN KING LIVES IN
MAINE. I SEEM REALLY FOLKSY, BUT IF YOU
LISTEN CLOSELY TO WHAT I’M JUSTIFYING, SUDDENLY I SEEM LIKE
A SKIN BAG FILLED WITH WRITHING TENTACLES.”( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )
( CHEERS )
A LITTLE BIT. LITTLE BIT. BUT THAT WAS YESTERDAY SUSAN
COLLINS. TODAY SUSAN COLLINS SEES THINGS
A LITTLE MORE CLEARLY. SHE NOW SAYS SHE PROBABLY
SHOULDN’T HAVE SAID THAT SHE BELIEVES TRUMP HAS LEARNED HIS
LESSONS FROM THE FALLOUT FROM HIS DEALINGS WITH UKRAINE AND
IMPEACHMENT. SHE NOW SAYS A BETTER WORD WOULD
HAVE BEEN “HOPES.” YES, AND A BETTER WORD FOR
“SENATOR” SUSAN COLLINS WOULD BE “FORMER SENATOR” SUSAN COLLINS.( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY. THERE’S THE DOOR. NOW, ONE DEMOCRAT WHO FOLKS
WEREN’T SURE WOULD VOTE TO CONVICT WAS ALABAMA SENATOR DOUG
JONES, GIVEN HOW POPULAR THE PRESIDENT IS IN ALABAMA. BUT HE DID. AND JONES DIDN’T WANT TOO MUCH
CREDIT.>>I AM MINDFUL, MR. PRESIDENT,
THAT I AM STANDING AT A DESK THAT ONCE WAS USED BY
JOHN F. KENNEDY, WHO FAMOUSLY WROTE “PROFILES IN COURAGE,” AND
THERE WILL BE SO MANY WHO WILL SIMPLY LOOK AT WHAT I’M DOING
TODAY AND SAY IT IS A PROFILE IN COURAGE.>>Stephen: (AS JONES)
“YES, SO MANY WILL CALL THIS A PROFILE IN COURAGE. SO MANY WILL ALSO SAY THAT I
SHOULD BE ON THE COVER OF ‘TIME MAGAZINE.’
MANY MORE WILL SAY I SHOULD BE ‘PEOPLE’S SEXIEST MAN ALIVE.’
I UNDERSTAND WHERE THESE SO MANY ARE COMING FROM. BUT PLEASE, DON’T NAME AN
AIRPORT IN NEW YORK AFTER ME.” THE VOTE ON OBSTRUCTION OF
CONGRESS WAS 53-47, PURE PARTISAN SPLIT. BUT ON THE FIRST CHARGE, ON THE
ABUSE OF POWER, THE VOTE WAS 52-48. AND ON THIS DARK DAY, THERE WAS
SOMEONE I WOULD LIKE TO THANK FOR GIVING ME A RAY OF HOPE:
UTAH SENATOR AND DAD EXPLAINING VENTURE CAPITALISM TO YOUR PROM
DATE, MITT ROMNEY. ROMNEY HAS NEVER BEEN A
FAR-RIGHT POLITICIAN–( APPLAUSE )
MITT’S NEVER BEEN A REALLY FAR-RIGHT POLITICIAN OR A
FAR-RIGHT REPUBLICAN. BUT IT WAS STILL SHOCKING TO
HEAR HIM SAY THIS:>>THE GREAT QUESTION THE
CONSTITUTION TASKS SENATORS TO ANSWER IS WHETHER THE PRESIDENT
COMMITTED AN ACT SO EXTREME AND EGREGIOUS THAT IT RISES TO THE
LEVEL OF A HIGH CRIME AND MISDEMEANOR. YES, HE DID.>>Stephen: YES. HE. DID. THANK YOU. THREE LITTLE WORDS CAN SOMETIMES
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
YES. IT’S NOT HARD.>>Jon: NO.>>Stephen: IT’S NOT MUCH. IT SEEMS SMALL, BUT THREE LITTLE
WORDS CAN SOMETIMES BE SO POWERFUL. YES, HE DID. I LOVE YOU. CHILI CHEESE FRIES.( LAUGHTER )
LET’S GET HIGH.( LAUGHTER )
ROMNEY SPOKE THE TRUTH.>>CORRUPTING AN ELECTION TO
KEEP ONESELF IN OFFICE IS PERHAPS THE MOST ABUSIVE AND
DESTRUCTIVE VIOLATION OF ONE’S OATH OF OFFICE THAT I CAN
IMAGINE.>>Stephen: TO WHICH TRUMP
REPLIED:( AS TRUMP )
“WOW, YOU DON’T HAVE MUCH OF AN IMAGINATION, DO YOU, MITT? BECAUSE NOW THAT I’M ACQUITTED,
I’M GOING TO VIOLATE THAT OATH IN WAYS THAT WOULD MAKE MY OLD
FRIEND JEFFREY EPSTEIN PUKE INTO A DUMPSTER.” REALLY? TOO SOON? ROMNEY SUMMED UP THE PRESIDENT’S
CRIMES EASILY.>>THE PRESIDENT’S PURPOSE WAS
PERSONAL AND POLITICAL. ACCORDINGLY, THE PRESIDENT IS
GUILTY OF AN APPALLING ABUSE OF PUBLIC TRUST.>>Stephen: YES! THAT’S WHAT THE IMPEACHMENT
MANAGERS WERE SAYING THE WHOLE TIME! SOMEONE WAS ACTUALLY LISTENING
TO THE SUBSTITUTE TEACHER, MR. SCHIFF. YOU GOT THROUGH TO THE TALL,
QUIET KID WHO HAS TROUBLE MAKING FRIENDS.( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )
IN THE BACK OF THE ROOM! QUIET. HANDSOME.>>Jon: COME ON!>>Stephen: HERE’S THE THING. HERE’S THE THING– THIS IS
IMPORTANT. MITT KNOWS THIS ISN’T GOING TO
MAKE HIM ANY FRIENDS IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.>>I’M AWARE THAT THERE ARE
PEOPLE IN MY PARTY AND IN MY STATE WHO WILL STRENUOUSLY
DISAPPROVE OF MY DECISION. AND IN SOME QUARTERS, I WILL BE
VEHEMENTLY DENOUNCED. I’M SURE TO HEAR ABUSE FROM THE
PRESIDENT AND HIS SUPPORTERS.>>Stephen: HE’S RIGHT. THE PRESIDENT WILL GO AFTER HIM. BUT I DOUBT TRUMP’S GOING TO
FIND ANY UKRAINIAN DIRT ON MITT ROMNEY.( AS UKRAINIAN )
“MR. PRESIDENT, YES, WE HAVE IT ON GOOD AUTHORITY THAT ONCE, IN
1997, MITT ROMNEY TOOK A SIP OF COFFEE THAT HE THOUGHT WAS
DECAF.”( LAUGHTER )
“YEAH, YEAH. AH, YEAH.” YEAH-DA. BUT ROMNEY IS WILLING TO PUT UP
WITH WHATEVER THE BLOWBACK FOR THIS DECISION IS.>>DOES ANYONE SERIOUSLY BELIEVE
THAT I WOULD CONSENT TO THESE CONSEQUENCES, OTHER THAN FROM AN
INESCAPABLE CONVICTION THAT MY OATH BEFORE GOD DEMANDED OF ME?>>Stephen: YES, HIS FAITH
COMPELS HIM TO VOTE FOR IMPEACHMENT. AND IT MAKES SENSE BECAUSE THE
OLD TESTAMENT DOES SAY THAT YOU SHOULD WORSHIP GOD, NOT GOLDEN
COWS. SO WHY–
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
WHY– IT’S TRUE.>>Jon: COME ON, NOW!>>Stephen: SO WHY IS HE THE
LONE REPUBLICAN WILLING TO GO AGAINST THIS PRESIDENT THAT MANY
OTHER G.O.P. SENATORS HAVE ADMITTED IS GUILTY? MITT?>>AS A SENATOR-JUROR, I SWORE
AN OATH, BEFORE GOD, TO EXERCISE “IMPARTIAL JUSTICE.” I AM PROFOUNDLY RELIGIOUS. MY FAITH IS AT THE HEART OF WHO
I AM. I TAKE AN OATH BEFORE GOD AS
ENORMOUSLY CONSEQUENTIAL. WERE I TO IGNORE THE EVIDENCE
THAT HAS BEEN PRESENTED AND DISREGARD WHAT I BELIEVE MY OATH
AND THE CONSTITUTION DEMANDS OF ME FOR THE SAKE OF A PARTISAN
END, IT WOULD, I FEAR, EXPOSE MY CHARACTER TO HISTORY’S REBUKE
AND THE CENSURE OF MY OWN CONSCIENCE.>>Stephen: YOU KNOW, IN MY
OWN SMALL WAY I TRY TO HUFF MY FAITH. AND OVER THE YEARS I’VE MADE A
LOT OF FUN OF MITT ROMNEY, A LOT OF JOKES ABOUT HIM. THE DOG ON THE ROOF. WHO LET THE DOGS OUT? CORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE, MY
FRIEND. BINDERS FULL OF WOMEN. BUT– AND I MEAN THIS
SINCERELY– AFTER SEEING THAT SPEECH, I WOULD DO ALL THOSE
JOKES AGAIN BECAUSE THAT’S OATH I TOOK. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
BUT– BUT– BUT I DO WANT TO SAY THAT WAS AN INSPIRING SPEECH
BECAUSE HEARING MITT ROMNEY TAKE HIS OATH TO GOD SERIOUSLY WAS
LIKE FINDING WATER IN THE DESERT. BECAUSE WE KNOW REPUBLICANS ARE
LYING WHEN THEY SAY THAT TRUMP DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG OR THAT
MAYBE HE DID BUT HE SHOULDN’T BE REMOVED. EVERY PERSON WHO LEAVES THE
WHITE HOUSE AND WRITES A BOOK ABOUT IT, EVERY JOURNALIST WHO
GETS A PEEK BEHIND THE CURTAIN– LIKE THE TWO WE HAD LAST NIGHT–
TELL US THE REPUBLICANS PRIVATELY ARE HORRIFIED AND WANT
SOMEONE TO DO SOMETHING TO STOP HIM. BUT THEY DON’T HAVE THE BALLS TO
SAY THAT OUT LOUD WHEN IT MATTERS. THAT’S WHY AN OATH IS IMPORTANT. OATHS MAY NOT MEAN A LOT TO SOME
PEOPLE. BUT WHEN YOU TAKE AN OATH, YOU
SAY ONE THING AND THINK ANOTHER. YOU ARE ASKING GOD TO WITNESS,
ON THE PAIN OF YOUR IMMORTAL SOUL, THAT WHAT YOU WHISPER IN
YOUR HEART IS WHAT COMES OUT OF YOUR MOUTH BUT THOSE OF THESE
GRIEZ TALK OUT THEIR ASS. IN ROBERT BOLT’S “A MAN FOR ALL
SEASONS,” THE MAIN CHARACTER, THOMAS MORE, IS THE LONE VOICE
OPPOSING HENRY VIII, A BLOATED, GOLDEN CHILD, WHO NONE DARED
GAINSAY, WHO DESTROYED ANYONE WHO DID NOT FOLLOW HIM BLINDLY,
AND THEN WHEN THEY HADN’T DESTROYED, A LOT OF PEOPLE
FOLLOWED HIM BLINDLY ANYWAY. IN THE PLAY, MORE SAYS THIS TO
HIS DAUGHTER, “WHEN A MAN TAKES AN OATH, HE’S HOLDING HIS OWN
SELF IN HIS OWN HANDS, LIKE WATER. AND IF HE OPENS HIS FINGERS,
THEN, HE NEEDN’T HOPE TO FIND HIMSELF AGAIN.” WELL, WITH THE LONE EXCEPTION OF
MITT ROMNEY, I THINK THE REPUBLICANS HAVE JUST OPENED
THEIR FINGERS. THEY WILL BE MISSED. SO PLEASE JOIN ME IN THANKING
MITT ROMNEY FOR BEING HONEST, FOR NOT LYING TO US OR HIMSELF,
FOR SERVING THE CONSTITUTION RATHER THAN THAT MONSTROUS CHILD
IN THE WHITE HOUSE. WHY CAN’T HE BE PRESIDENT? THANKS, OBAMA.( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
AND, AGAIN, I DIDN’T WANT TO
TALK ABOUT ANY OF THAT STUFF. SO, JIM, LET’S GO BACK TO OUR
TOP STORY AGAIN BECAUSE WE HAVE A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU TONIGHT. JIM CARREY IS HERE. WHEN WE RETURN, “MEANWHILE!”

Author Since: Mar 11, 2019

  1. If people don't want Donald Trump as president there is a very simple solution:
    DON'T VOTE FOR HIM AND HE WILL GO AWAY.
    Unless people are really stupid and what to get stuck Whit him for 4 more years.

  2. Thank you senator Romney for being honest and faithful oath and not playing honest and faithful and most of all religious, the dirty politicians, the Republicans

  3. Notice Romney wasn't being true to his people he was being true to himself. Not the sign of a good leader. A good leader disregards himself in favor for the people he's leading.

  4. Did Jesus also say to Romney to kiss Trump’s ass after he got elected in order to get some position in the party? Trump fisted romney way too good long before « he found Jesus » and remembered that he has values
    Watch the video to confirm
    https://youtu.be/2JzvYUYfICM

  5. Oh, almost forgot something: Stephen! When the bad man is out of the White House and has nothing to protect him from charges, make an animation of the Giant Impeach bursting out of his stomach, Aliens-style. Seems fitting, since it impregnated him with disaster.

  6. I know he didn't want to say it because thinking about it gives u a headache..sick to ur stomach..but had to be said…when i found out he wasn't impeached..i did..& i feel like i still need yell..i guess he hasn't pissed off the right person or white person

  7. Colbert, you are making fun of the president who is the best one since Kennedy? Ubelievable. Be assured that Trump will win the presidential elections with flying colors.

  8. 1- these comments are hilarious, y’all despised Romney when he rank against Barry but now he’s a hero
    2-this guys supposed to be funny? Sheesh

  9. Lol, so much for the checks and balances. What can checks and balances do when all of them are corrupt and can't judge the obvious corrupt because they want to keep theirs out of the media. LOL

  10. Ok I'll say it. Now the new normal will demand that this party clearly not the GOP we know btw calls for the impeachment. The impeachment of Stephen T. Colbert, cause this guy is a menace for the douchebag in chief Thank you.

  11. So what could anyone paying attention really expect from the current pack of Yes-men Republicans who spend all of their time in the Senate bent over, kowtowing to the Orange Fart we elected president. Will future politicians follow his trail of lies? Extreme lying has become the norm and the widespread acceptance of this is corrupting our government to its very roots.

  12. If you read the two transcripts hundred times…i cannot find ANY thing even close to "impeachable"….
    I see a President doing his constitutional duty….and just doing his job very well.

  13. Thanks Stephen for recognizing Mitt and the courage it took to do what he did. Thanks Mitt for helping us see what is hard to see and know amidst the noise.

  14. Mitt Romney is a standup kind of senator that pledged his oath to GOD that he would do the right thing , when Trump stands before GOD in the Judgement Seat he's got too give an account forever evil thing that he has said & done !!! 😌🤔

  15. Hitler was a racist,,,,,there are no racists in America,,,do you see any camps killing one group of people,,,no,,,learn what racism is ,,,,,,,trump 2020

  16. The GOP has Ben Under Full Koch Net Work Control Sens Around 2008. The Real Republican party leaders Have Ben Gone for about 11 years
    Now All of Them Sellouts. and The Third Party The Koch Net Work won't stop With The GOP They Want it all They are Already Working on
    Taking Down The Democrats and Getting a constitutional convention Called The Koch Net Work Is Truly worthy of being a James bond villain

  17. The republicans left their balls in a jar on the fireplace mantel. They will pay dearly for violating their oath of office. They swore an oath to God Almighty and violated that oath may they rot in hell!!!!!!

  18. The U.S Constitution was meant to prevent partisan sham trials like what happened in the House. The Senate did the right thing by acquitting Trump.

  19. Half-hearted thank you to Mitt Romney (too little, too late?), but a full-throated thank you to Stephen Colbert for sharing his strong voice of conscience. Can't imagine that is gaining him any friends at the network, and in Letterman-esque fashion I hope Colbert truly doesn't give a phuque.

  20. good monologue Stephen, this is THE one fact everyone should finally be able to see clearly, laid bare by all these GOP Senators who claim to serve & follow God – they do not. If they can take an oath before and to God, then turn around and lie to our faces, defending and colluding with DJTweetyTrump to try to help him unfairly win reelection,(again !!) and to keep him in there just to keep their wicked agenda of huge tax cuts they're robbing the country with and the bribes they're getting to do just that, as they actively do nothing to help everyone else they're keeping in poverty, (besides themselves while they live in luxury at our expense, while we pay for their kids to go to private schools but our kids are getting shot in public schools, and we pay for their families to have health insurance, vacations, trips and luxurious homes, and retirements, etc.)when they know he was guilty of all of it and far more and that he is a criminal, pathological liar, cheater at everything, serial adulterer who has no respect for any man or for God….then they do not know God themselves at all. Their gods are money and power. It's appalling that only 1 GOP told the truth. Their voters need t wake up and realize who the GOP cares about cause it sure isn't them.
    I never thought they'd get enough votes to convict him, and even if they had convicted him, I did not think they'd take him out of office, but I did expect many more of them to let Trump know he was wrong and could not do the crap he did, by voting honestly with some integrity as to what they KNOW to be true. .These snakes who talked so truthfully about Trump in 2016, for them to sit there now ignoring his crimes is traitorous in my opinion. They know better.

  21. Now that the sham trial has had a sham vote to acquit a criminal who was proven guilty the US can know that it has a sham president who is still impeached and the United States is now officially a banana republic run by a criminal gang.

  22. Thank you Mr.colbert I couldn't get through this hell with out your show. I personally cannot wait to vote in November for Sanders.

  23. I don't agree politically with Mitt Romney on much of anything, but I admire the integrity, honesty, and courage he showed. Just serves to point out how hypocritical and spineless the rest of the Republicans in the Senate were when it counted.

  24. It's disappointing that this powerful statement in support of Romney and his act of conscience is followed by "and we've got an anti-vaccination activist here tonight!"

  25. 10:50 "…It would, I fear, expose my character to history's rebuke." holy shit bravo, man, at least you know you're going to be on the right side of history here

  26. Stephen is angry and about to cry
    I love watching people telling jokes while they are clearly so angry
    And sometimes are not funny

  27. The only people who become a us president is a rich person,the rich don’t care for the working class.the rich just wanna take take & take some more from you,this needs to stop ✋🏼

  28. Watching this as a UK citizen, the summing up of Mr Romney's remarks by Mr Colbert gave me hope that everything that makes America great does indeed still exist. I don't share the republican view but wow… what a brave man Mr Romney is. Gratitude in the US, no doubt. But many gratitudes from the world also.

  29. The Dems get away with all kinds of illegal secret activities that skirt the boundary of the constitution, nobody does anything about it, so everything is ephen Stephen !!!

  30. Mitt drove around with his dog on the roof of his car, when they asked the dog what part of the car he rode in he said "ruff ruff !!!!" Mitt always gets treated like a floor mat when he's actually a catchers Mitt !!! Mitt went to truck driving school with Ken Worth !!!!

  31. Stephen, looking from outside at you and CNN and MSNBC and all so called liberal media one thing is becoming clear. Either you are imbeciles with Trump reaching 50% approval rating after three years of messing things up, or you are lying, or you have the wrong understanding of the world! You need to reevaluate a lot of things about yourself and the world!

  32. For all that people mock the overtly religious, especially in late-night shows when they are often seen as intolerant and obtuse to reason, it is truly refreshing to see someone show the other side of the story. To see someone for whom religion is not used as a cover for their faults, but as a source of inspiration to step up and do the right thing.
    I applaud Mitt Romney and Stephen Colbert for treating it as more than a joke and instead with the respect it deserves. If there was a Republican who deserved to be President today, it is him. He is what's needed in the GOP as an opposition party to the Democrats; not a mindless zealot to a party of narrow-minded, inflexible people, but someone whose views might not be in-line with most liberals but is honourable and deserving of respect and an alternate point-of-view that is worth listening to.
    Thank you Mr. Rommey, and thank you Mr. Colbert, you are both needed in the world today.

  33. Why do you hate Trump? What wrong did he do to the US economy? Who forced the Ukrainian government to sack their Prosecutor for investigating into Burisma? Who gave away hundreds of millions USD to Iran to build nuclear bombs? Who deleted away 30,000 government emails found in her private server? What was the outcome of the Mueller Report? Why did all 17 witnesses give unreliable testimonies to the Democrats prior to the Senate hearing? Whose fault that the Democrats have lost public trust?

  34. I do want to point out, Romney only voted against Abuse of Power, he did not vote against Obstruction of Justice. And as glad as I am that he voted against partisan at all, it is kinda sad that we're celebrating him for doing the absolute bare minimum of his actual job.

  35. There is a reason why the Left is so prevalent in Media. Newscasters, actors, talk show hosts, comedians and even politicians…are usually the personality types that seek recognition and crave attention. They must have others believing what they do. This is why they permeate the airwaves of communications. However…because their lives were engaged in obtaining this exposure, they remain oblivious to how superficial their understanding is. They know the appearance of emotion, intelligence, understanding…but often lack the substance of it. They must maintain appearances desperately for livelihood, so are easily persuaded by the media and peer pressure…even though it misrepresents reality, science, events, etc. It is sad to behold so many falling to the illusion of the modern liberal facade. They think they are in the majority…but reality keeps hitting them. People like their entertainment…but take their opinions only with a grain of salt. That’s real life. They are no more “special” than the average person.

  36. you got your show Steve just like oprah got hers
    in mid 80's oprah armed with millions in Soros Cash buys up sponsor ships to ABC -tv from Chicago .. then buys up technical staff paid cash in millions to make go away .
    With this Phil Donahue is stripped from the air waves overnite ,. While oprah says we jus t need a bunch of old white men To Die .
    with the time Slot Now Open Guess WHO Takes IT ? ya get one guess . she did . stole it all with soros money , and you guys think Bloomborg is any different ?
    On to Other news – Three years before mark Cuban bought his ball team ( almost to the day ) mark hit a 39 million texas power ball ,
    wife and I Both recalled that one well .
    seems the power ball right before his was oddly high for the day at 189 mil or so and the one After marks was 70-ish mil .
    Right before Tax day mark changes his last name /was german I think .
    he can bash trump all he wants , just remember steve who fought for your way of life, and even you cant call any of that a lie .

  37. Colbert is the Democratic Trump.

    Demanding opposition be respectful when he is not respectful. Demanding his opposition be separated from politics when his whole platform is politics. Claiming we should be united when his whole approach is divisive.

    The irony.

  38. The president was NOT impeached. You can not take a person’s 6th amendment right away and ram some case threw the court and expect to win with NO due process. Due process is the legal requirement that the state must respect all legal rights that are owed to a person. LIKE THE 6th Amendment … When a government harms a person without following the exact course of the law, this constitutes a due process violation, which offends the rule of law.

     

    Amendment VI

    In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

  39. How could such a disgusting lying incompetent fraud, con man, and self-serving swindler (a business failure who would be nothing without his father’s $400 Million inheritance) be so powerful to so many? Are there that many easily influenced fools in America? Losers that know they will be trashed by the charlatan blowhard if they don’t get on their knees for him? Pathetic. The 5X draft dodger and money laundering cheat hasn’t earned the loyalty he commands.

  40. Ah so it's honoring his oath because he voted the way you wanted? Hmmm. How about they voted against a "political rival" in order to swing an election because they can't win…. That sounds about right.

  41. HEY LIB SNOWFLAKES – HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! I GUESS ADAM "SCHITT" COULDN'T CONVINCE ANY REPUBLICANS! EVEN OL' MITT VOTED NOT GUILTY ON THE SECOND COUNT.

  42. I'm usually not a crass person, but I'm going to be crass now… Mr. Romney, you are the only republican these days with a pair of balls. Thank you….

  43. Thank you Mr Romney for taking that oath as it should be. You say you are profoundly religious and show it be understanding the consequences of this situation. Unlike Mike Pence who also claims to be profoundly religious yet he does so much against G-d's teachings. You have my respect sir
