It’s hard to believe, but the CNBC Republican debate could have been worse… an hour and a half worse.
To their credit, CNBC got the candidates to agree on something.
Nailed it. haha
No bias here guys. I checked.
Now that was a truthy fact-cination!
If Trump was president for 2 hours I would still be scared
It’s like Ted Cruz was auditioning to be my Uber driver.
Stephen Colbert: The Clinton family ‘groom of the stool.’
Meh, fuck all the candidates, save one or two that actually believe in climate change. They’re all complete fools.
Both parties are not good, but jesus the media is so fucking biased it is sad. Colbert is just another liberal hack fraud.
Ted Cruz is one creepy Canadian
This is a nice throwback to very early Letterman.
CNBC really screwed the pooch on this debate. It was a disaster.
Thank you CNBC. We got to see how horrible the Republicans are.
Ted Cruz may not make a great friend, but he would make an excellent Uber driver.
An interview with the American people or an interview for the corporations?
“Even in New Jersey you’d be considered rude” Hahahahahaha
NO! Don’t even give Donald Trump 2 hours as president.
2 hours? I wouldn’t even trust that Buffoon as president for 2 minutes!
Donald Trump: “My biggest weakness is being so effective people are scared of how much progress I’ll make”. How bloody pretentious.
deezz nuts 2016
CNBC did not ask any unfair questions. Donald Trump WAS critical of Zuckerberg on his website. Republican clowns don’t even read their own so called policies. Stephen Colbert needs to do a better job at holding these Rupublicans’ feet to the fire.
I can’t believe that with all those Republican candidates, there is not a single decent one. Every single one of them is a regressive.
Colbert blew it! Trump is now a proven liar. His attack on Rubio and Zuckerberg is indeed on Trump’s own web page, precisely as charged! She said that later, how did Stephen miss it?
What a liberal jackass this guy is?
clinton and obama skipped each twice as many votes as rubio
2:00 I feel like thats not actually a bad thing. Those are hard questions that the candidates should be expected to answer.
2:53 That was obvious sarcasm from the moderator though. Trump lied through his teeth.
Is Stephen a Republican?
That was one of the best sketches in this series. Weird feeling that both colberts merging into THE SUPER COLBERT
They had a game plan to attack the moderators. It worked well for Trump. Did you notice Cruz didn’t even answer Quintanilla’s question?
Ted Cruz is a strange little man
Thank you Stephen Colbert.
The CNBC debate shows what happens when the moderators think the candidates are all morons. I think the candidates were correct to go after them.
Stephen U must know that the USA can deBAIT (spelt wrong on purpose) until the cows come home, where ever home is for COWS. MOO MOO Move over Donald Trump. He must do the Milk Commercial with all his CHEAP buildings he has built. There’s NO SUSTAINABLE ENERGY here, hear. FUCK PLEA’S SOMEBODY TRUMP HIS HAIR?
Please America. Don’t elect another illiterate nutcase. We have only just gotten accustomed to one that can speak in complete sentences.
Best regards The rest of the world
Letterman is sitting in retirement right now and just shaking his head in disappointment on how Colbert has turned the show into 10+ minutes of political commentary and anti-Trump comments every.single.night.
I think the winner of this debate was Marco Rubio. I’m not a republican, but I think he was very well spoken, had a lot of time to make his points, and the questions for him were relatively easy (the hardest one was the one about skipping votes, but he was able to ignore it). I think it will be a race between Rubio and Carson in the end, and I think that Rubio will win because he’s more charismatic and a better speaker than Carson.
5:15 Stephen, your hair looks sexy pushed back.
lol. Rand Paul’s green room is awesome. Now if we could just watch a security video of him writhing in pain on the floor after he stops taking money from the government he hates.
This IS all a joke – on the American people.
I don’t know what is worse and really can’t believe it comes down to Clinton or Trump… Either way it’s like watching the beginning of a low budget, pre-apocalypse zombie movie… Or the fall of Rome
I don’t understand how those questions were disrespectful. Seriously, pointing out that Rubio skipped more votes than any other candidates is considered disrespectful now!?!? this country is so fucking screwed…
they need to stop complaining about the moderaters…if you can’t take that without losing your cool, how can you be president? imagine a democratic debate with Fox moderators
Oh deary me. What a bunch of big girls’ blouses.
God, this was funny.
I’m voting for trump
It’s funny how the Republican’s version of substance is either complaining that they never talk about substance or complaining about each other. One can easily recognize the immense shift in our nation’s political discourse over the last 10 years: Talking about politics to talking about talking about politics. That is to say, no longer do we talk about things of gravity, but instead the daily doings and shenanigans of those elected to discuss such issues. In a word, politics has become politicized and monetized, mined for buzzy, controversial content that attracts the populous’ attention as would a viral video—precipitously.
Even on the democratic stage it is inconceivable to see substantive topics be truly discussed, though the Democratic party is much more reasonable and direct. We equate true discussion of issues with talking about each candidate’s ‘plan’; when in fact true, productive discussion involves a holistic and honest examination of all the facts and all the perspectives. On both sides of the aisle, politicians are guilty of being blind to certain evidence. This decline in discussion is inextricably linked to the decline in long-form journalism; The rise of buzzy, quick, quirky, and simple media has supplanted all forms of meticulous, informative journalism. Buzzfeed perhaps is the archetype of this phenomenon. Since when have huuuuuge-ly complex issues been seen as distilled as they are now, as clear-cut and black and white? One is either this or that, a democrat or a Republican, a pro-lifer or a pro-choicer, a liberal or a conservative…We all want the same thing, no?—A happy, healthy, and productive life. Why have insignificant differences become defining factors? Why is our goal not to ascertain the most effective way to achieve our common welfare rather than to orchestrate a giant pissing contest aimed at proving one party’s superiority over another?
My answer to these questions: Probably greed. I am by no means against greed. I fully concur with what Gordon Gekko so brilliantly said: “…greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind.” But this I only agree with on an individual level, the level of the ego. (I subscribe to the belief of psychological egoism, a descriptive philosophy that acknowledges the animal’s individual, lifelong occupation with pleasure. ) Gekko’s next line, “And greed, you mark my words, will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA. “, I disagree with. Our government insofar as it is capable ought to be incorruptible and have an exhaustive series of checks and balances. Also, it ought to at all times serve its people as maximally and efficiently as possible.
The most fake looking and intelligence insulting election in human history.
2 hours feels about right haha good one stephen
Colbert, you are better than this. Defending the republicans for attacking the moderates just so they can sidestep the question. C’mon man
stephen colbert would be a great moderator…
During the Fox News debate many of the questions were similarly ‘gotcha’ or personal, had nothing to do with issues, yet not ONE candidate other than Trump raised concerns about it. So trying to blame CNBC, but NOT Fox is hyper-hypocritical! Yes, I agree these debates, and debate questions are ridiculous. But those on the right making these claims are doing themselves supreme disservice by not laying equal criticism on their beloved trumpet, Fox News.
I stand with Sanders!
Ted Cruz: I want to be America’s designated driver.
Loved the hat Stephen. Basically the debate went this way. Jeb, blah, blah, Donald Trump, blah, blah, blah, build a wall, Ben Carson in soft talk, blah, blah, blah. The moderator than asked, “Ben could you speak up so we can heard you?” Ben, blah, blah.
