After the President went on live television and appealed to China to investigate Joe Biden, his defenders in the Republican Party insisted Trump was just kidding around. #Colbert #LSSC #Monologue

    We WILL overthrow the oppressive capitalist establishment that forced us to clean toilets around the country.

    Such a good trade deal, but “California’s drought-stricken Central Valley churns out 80 percent of the globe’s almonds, and since each nut takes a gallon of water to produce, they account for close to 10 percent of the state’s annual agricultural water use—or more than what the entire population of Los Angeles and San Francisco use in a year.” — New Republic.

    Alfalfa uses 18% of the agricultural water there, represents only 4% of the income, and is almost all used for livestock. Much of it is exported for livestock overseas. Alfalfa farmers pay about $70 an acre-foot, in Los Angeles that same amount of water is worth $1000 per acre-foot.

    None of this is surprising as California’s agricultural land is largely in arid and semi-arid areas. California also produces rice of all things. –Summary from Wiki.

    Stephen Colbert ears make him look like a hobbit. I say this with love cause i know he is such a big LOTR fan and he did star in the hobbit as a extra character.

    You can also impeach a president for handing classified information from allies to US adversaries, for corruption, for violating the emoluments clause (both foreign and domestic), for obstruction of justice, for violating the hatch act, for letting hundred die in Puerto Rico because they didn’t vote for him in the presidential election and while holding him to his own standard: For incompetence

    Hey Stephen, Trump is not stupid for releasing the transcript, he’s super smart, genius and definitely has a brilliant plan!! You should tell him that more often on your show! (Make sure Stephen sees this!)

    Trump thinks he’s a comedian? He better not quit his day job. Oh, wait…maybe he should.

    Germany here:
    *Who the heck got you into this mess of a presidency?*
    Lies, bullying, cheating, voting fraud, invited (!) foreign election interference, attacks on the free press, racism, nepotism, insane levels of corruption, even treason
    What?
    *Your fellow Americans?*
    Are they really that stupid?
    And, WHAT, they still don’t get it?
    YOU MUST BE JOKING, RIGHT?

    No, I’ve been following your domestic political developments very closely for several years now.
    The RIGHT isn’t joking.
    After more and more self-enrichment of the political elite, the greedy GOP lawmakers decided that it is time to copy the Russian oligarch model:
    _Let us destroy the pseudo-democratic US two-party-system with gerrymandering and other fraudulent measures and replace it with a real dictatorship under Trump and us as oligarchs._
    _Why not?_
    _If we can all be billionaires, who cares about the US constitution and the American people!_

    Dear American friends!
    Hope you survive this nightmare.
    And please, please have a de-Trump-ification for the whole Trump cult when this is over. Just you prescribed a de-Nazi-fication for the German Nazis after Hitler.
    All the best to you from Germany

    Here in the UK there used to be a children’s tv program called Rainbow. One of the characters was a puppet called Zippy, who had a zip for a mouth. When Zippy was rude to people, said things that tried to cause trouble for others or was just downright obnoxious, the zip would be closed so that he couldn’t talk…wouldn’t it be nice if this were a real life option?

    If someone took a shot at Trump, would the Republicans accept the “it was a joke defense”?
