Late Show mocks Donald Trump for protecting hate groups

Posted August 16, 2017

"President Trump's delayed denunciation of white supremacists and their violent actions in Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend can not be separated from this Administration's ongoing assault on racial and religious minorities".

He has told associates that he has no plans to leave the White House and would only do so if Trump fires him.

"Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka and Stephen Miller have long embraced the views of white supremacists, white nationalists and Neo-Nazis". "I said he was".

"The tragic events of last weekend were an inevitable result of President Trump's willingness to harbor white nationalism within his administration", Pallone said in a statement.

According to the New York Times, the President did not reject the advice but instead voiced his own issues with Mr Bannon who is the former executive chairman for far-right publication Breitbart.

Colbert had more questions about Trump's chief strategist. After a quick recap of what's going on (i.e. Trump dancing around actually condemning Nazis), a montage is shown featuring some of the many things Trump has said about others, publicly attacking them. Among a stable of kakistocrats who are mostly concerned with the ruthless pursuit of wealth, power, or far darker goals, the former White House communications director was at least amusing. To make matters worse, Trump waited two days to take a firm stance against white supremacy.

After the president waited two days to blame white supremacists for the violence in Charlottesville, there is new pressure from Mr. Trump's critics to dismiss Mr. Bannon.

Hicks, who is 28 years old, has served as the White House Director of Strategic Communications.

The cartoon above was produced before President Trump made his new repulsive remarks about the deadly, racist, anti-semitic and un-American rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

At the end of the show, Colbert presented him, the man who once called himself a "front-stabber", with a knife that was safely encased in glass, presumably so that he could not begin to enact his kill list and murder Colbert's writing staff. "What I don't like, though, is the toleration of it".

"When you take a job like that, you know your expiration date is coming", he explained. "I think he respects bluntness and he respects candor". "I didn't think I was going to last too long but I thought I was going to last longer than a carton of milk".
