Stephen Colbert: 'We should never, ever have another election like this one'

April AlvarezNov 10, 2016

Again, we don't know what's going to happen, but I was thinking this was going to be the time that she got what she wanted. This drew some bitter laughter, and also set a grim tone for a late night interview-the likes of which I've never seen before. "That's the happiest thought I can think of!" "Whether your side won or lost, we don't have to do this shit for awhile", Colbert said. Give a libertarian a (sex act). This feels like an asteroid has just smacked into our democracy. I wish I could be amusing.

Those who wish to watch Colbert's special will need a Showtime subscription, but his uncensored monologue will be broadcast for free on Facebook Live. Colbert had poured himself a drink.

But now that Trump has officially been elected President of the United States, it's clear that this political commentary had an inverse effect on the majority of Americans who ended up voting for the Republican nominee.

Colbert, with millions watching live, processed this information for a second.

After mainlining nearly an entire day's worth of public-access nonsense and pastoral soft-rock, flip over to Lifetime's The View Live Election Special, where co-hosts Joy Behar, Jedediah Bila, Candace Cameron Bure, Sara Haines, and Sunny Hostin will discuss the early results, talk about the big issues, and send, like, a dozen C.O.D. pizzas to Elisabeth Hasselbeck's house.

Ch-ch-check out all the best bits of Stephen's election special (above) & (below)!

On Election Eve, Jon Stewart stopped by The Late Show to join his old friend and former colleague Stephen Colbert to urge voters to do their civic duty Tuesday. We will just have to wait a LITTLE bit longer than expected to find out if America prefers a competent sane woman or a misogynist troll doll.

Stephen Colbert brings his signature satire and comedy to THE LATE SHOW with Stephen Colbert, where he talks with an eclectic mix of guests about what is new and relevant in the worlds of politics, entertainment, business, music, technology and more. He cares. He truly does.

Then, he spoke about Democrats and Republicans being terrified of each other.

"So how did our politics get so poisonous?"

If owners choose a new Samsung washer, they will also get an additional $150 loyalty incentive. Consumers should contact Samsung immediately to receive one of the following remedy options.

Nope, I think not. "But you know what, everybody feels that way". And it was Colbert, alone, speaking from the heart about an outcome that neither he, his producers, nor any educated person in the country expected.

"I think it's because we overdosed", he said. "The election is over, you survived".

The show closed with the band playing "God Bless America", and it sounded like a funeral dirge. But Colbert hurried back on stage.

Watch the amusing videos above! "Ugh, I can't tell which one's worse". Oh, sure, you'll stay open for this, but when I try to cover Elizabeth Cady Stanton's grave with My Little Pony stickers I'm mentally disturbed.

Panther's coach Ron Rivera backs Cam Newton's concerns
The struggle shoes caught it, too. "There are hits - illegal hits - that are missed in every game on a quarterback", Fisher said. I just can't keep accepting, "Oh we missed that one" or "I apologize for doing that" or "I didn't see it" - that's horsecrap.
