Just when late-night TV seems to have become as annoyingly political as it can possibly be, night after night, it gets even worse.
Stephen Colbert (he of the Nazi salute), fresh from bashing Trump as host of the Emmy Awards –- why should Trump-bashing be confined to late-night? –- continued bashing the President on his own show the night after Trump’s courageous speech before the UN General Assembly. To do this, he decided to call in the big guns. He brought on a special guest expert who could be counted on to provide an objective assessment of Trump’s performance.
Apparently, the many people, including myself, who had a highly positive reaction to that speech –- who think our President said just what needed to be said to that august body of ineffectual speechifiers and some outright supporters of terrorism –- are wrong. Hillary spoke of how “dark” and “dangerous” his speech was. She chided that we should always seek the diplomatic solution first. Never mind that the diplomatic efforts of her own State Department were a notable failure that left the Middle East, along with our own national security, worse off than before. (I could say a great deal more about Hillary’s State Department, much of which seems not to have been corrected yet, but then I might not be able to stop and you’d have to wait for the book.)
Anyway, there she was, calling herself “Paula Revere,” as she rides the airwaves sounding the alarm over Vladimir Putin’s involvement in our 2016 election process. (Get it? Maybe she saw the movie, “The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming!,” which was pretty funny. But if Hillary's horse is as lame as that joke, she's not riding anywhere.) She claimed Putin “really doesn’t like democracy” and thinks it’s “an inconvenient, messy process.” Funny, that’s how I’ve always thought Hillary Clinton felt about democracy. After all, she’s the one trying to cast doubt on our election results, when no evidence has been found to show Russia had any influence that affected a single vote.
“Paula Revere” --- along with your chums in “entertainment” who keep pushing you on us--- you just need to accept it: If we wanted to know what you thought about the UN, or the diplomatic process, or the Middle East, or Russia, or, really, anything, we would have made you President. And we did not make you President not because of Vladimir Putin, but because we do not “revere” you.
