    I love Colbert and everything..
    but this network can kiss my fucking ass.
    Uploaded a minute and a half of the interview with Bernie Sanders..
    and never made that episode available on demand,
    even though every other episode was available.
    I’m guessing it was CBS’s ignorant bought out decision..
    Probably bought out by Hillary.
    Just like Larry Wilmore who made the interview with Sanders into one big
    Literally interrupting him every time he started to discuss his policies,
    for a “bit” joking about the dumb simpletons who interrupted him from BLM.
    Now, can you imagine if he did that to Hillary?
    Yeah.. didn’t think so.
    Colbert’s interview with Sanders was professional and he gave him the
    spotlight he desperately needs.
    That is why i’m still fucking pissed they made that (Late Show) interview
    soo hard to view.
    Even though they upload damn near full interviews of people like Amy
    Schumer to Jeb Bush.
    Even Ted fucking Cruz.
    Eat shit CBS.

    Well, if your stupid enough to believe in a bronze age sky god, your stupid
    enough to believe water drunk by the pope will give you special blessings
    /powers if your drink it.

    Does the guy who puts his hand up for a high five just sit under the desk
    for the rest of the entire show?

  • Jt Burton 4 years ago

    lol you know he thought about some kinda powers/blessing before he drank
    from the popes glass.

    “I believe X and I don’t want to know if it is true or not”

    Yup, checks out as a typical Christian.

    Touch is central to the Catholic faith, as Jesus was believed to have
    healed simply through touching the sick or by being touched by the sick.
    Given that the Pope is the Vicar of Christ, it’s understandable why the
    faithful want to touch him and be touched by him. The same logic applied
    with the whole glass of water thing. Because that glass of water was used
    by the Pope, a blessed man, the faithful believe it to be blessed as well.
    The significance is further deepened by the fact that it was water touched
    by the Pope, as water is again a central element to the Catholic faith.
    It’s stupid, I know. But that’s faith for you.

    My first reaction was to laugh at him, then I was horrified at how creepy
    that is. I mean he went out of his way to find and drink from the Pope’s
    glass. The hell? How messed up is that?
