On Thursday, during an interview with comedian Stephen Colbert, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper invoked an obscure “X-Men” reference to characterize the destructive tendencies of President Donald Trump — and the way he politically poisons anyone who comes into contact with him. “The pace of it, I think about the people who work in the White […]

"It was a bit of a rough day on Wall Street — the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell over 800 points," Stephen Colbert said on Wednesday's Late Show. "My condolences to the entire Jones family. Our economy will be missed." He used a Chumbawamba song to explain this week's especially volatile market, but he was as stumped as most people about the proximate cause of Wednesday's panic: the dreaded inverted yield curve. "Do you have any idea what that means?" Colbert asked. "If so, please tell me, because I have been watching TV all day long and I am still not getting it." He showed one chart that kind of made sense. "Now one thing that is definitely not helping the world economy is Trump's trade war with China, but we may be getting some relief," thanks to Trump's delay of half of new tariffs until Dec. 15, giving retailers time to stock up on Christmas imports, Colbert said. "It's odd that Trump would back down to protect American consumers, because he's been clear about one thing all along," China is paying for the tariffs. He ran through some of the bizarre items you'll be able to import until Dec. 15, but "one product that has been dropped from Trump's tariff list permanently is Bibles," Colbert said, feigning shock. "Our Bibles come from China? No wonder Jesus is always talking about sharing everything with the poor: They're selling us commie Jesus!" The Late Show also enlisted Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer to explain Trump's tariff about-face. And if you want to actually understand the inverted yield curve, The Week's Jeff Spross has a helpful explainer, and so does The Wall Street Journal. Peter Weber

"In this age of President Trump and an intensely polarizing politics, we often need some comedic relief to lighten things up and also see things from a different perspective," Anderson Cooper said on CNN Wednesday night. "Enter Stephen Colbert." He played part of the hour-long conversation he had with Colbert earlier Wednesday, starting with Colbert's thoughts on acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services chief Ken Cuccinelli mangling the poem engraved on the Statue of Liberty. "Oh my God, I blame you for Ken Cuccinelli," Colbert told Cooper, noting that Cuccinelli was on CNN a lot. Cooper said if any official in a prior administration had messed with that bedrock statement of American beliefs, "people's heads would explode." Colbert aimed higher. "There is our physical Constitution ... but there's also this emotional Constitution that America has," Colbert said. "There's an emotional reality that we all share that makes us all Americans, and one of them is things like 'The New Colossus,' the poem that Emma Lazarus wrote that's on the Statue of Liberty. And we're constantly being told by this administration: 'You don't see what you see, you don't hear what you hear.' Now they're saying you don't feel what you feel. ... You don't actually believe that this is a nation of immigrants." Colbert explained what he means when he calls President Trump a "heretic to reality." In Catholic theology, "the greatest sin is actually heresy," because "not only are you astray from the right path, you're inviting, you're encouraging other people to come with you on that path," he said. "Our president wants to live in a fantasy world where only the way he perceives the world is the way it is, only things that sort of serve his vision, and he's also trying to convince us that that is the only world that exists. It's extremely solipsistic. But he's also trying to invite us into this madness that he has, and that is heresy against reality." The thesis of The Late Show, Colbert agreed, has become "Hey, you're not crazy." Watch below to see Colbert explain Dante's punishment for heresy and in which circle of Hell it's meted out, Cooper quote Dorothy Parker, and Colbert explain why he wouldn't welcome Trump back on his show.

Stephen Colbert Says 'For Safety Sake' Trump Can't Come on His Show

Stephen Colbert paused as he considered the question posed by CNN's Anderson Cooper: Would he want to have President Donald Trump on his late-night show again? "The quick answer would be no," Colbert said, appearing to choose his words carefully in a clip of an interview that aired Wednesday night. "It would be hard for me to be properly respectful of the office because I think that he is so disrespectful of the office that it's very hard to perceive him as I would want to perceive a president in terms of their status and the dignity and their representation of the United States." He continued, "I think just for safety's sake it wouldn't be a good idea." Colbert, who had the president on his CBS late-night show almost four years ago, is just the latest entertainer who has reconsidered how and whether to give airtime to Trump in a comedic setting. In recent months, hosts including Colbert's predecessor, David Letterman, and NBC's Jimmy Fallon have expressed regret for inviting Trump on their shows, appearances that exposed millions of viewers to him in a more lighthearted way than a serious news interview. Trump's only appearance on Colbert's show, which came as he was still seen as a long-shot GOP candidate, drew decidedly mixed reviews. When Colbert walked onto the set of "The Late Show" on Sept. 22, 2015, and announced to a raucous audience that "Donald Trump is here," the bespectacled host from South Carolina had been at the helm of the popular late-night program for just over two weeks. As TV critic Brian Lowry wrote in Variety at the time, Trump's appearance on the show was an "eagerly awaited" event. On one side of the desk was a comedian who had developed a reputation for "piercingly intelligent satire," as the Guardian put it. And in his guest chair would be...

Stephen Colbert wouldn’t interview Trump out of respect for the presidency - New York Daily News

Official site of The Week Magazine, offering commentary and analysis of the day's breaking news and current events as well as arts, entertainment, people and gossip, and political cartoons. CNN's Anderson Cooper played a second excerpt from his interview with Stephen Colbert on Thursday's AC360, and they talked a lot in this segment about President Trump's appeal. Cooper began by asking Colbert if there isn't a "point of critical mass where people will have had enough." "I think it's just we vote in 2020 and we find out some more about our country," Colbert shrugged. "We found out something interesting about our country in 2016, and I think what we find out every so often in presidential elections is that there's a large group of Americans — and I don't even think its necessary Democrat or Republican — there's a large group of Americans who think the president should be a complete jerk. ... A guy who's willing to work on the dark side and get things done." "Conservatives used to make fun of liberals for victimhood," Cooper said, but "Donald Trump — I mean, he is promoting a sense of victimhood that seems appealing to a lot of the people listening to him." Colbert agreed that this is one of Trump's appeals, that there are people who "strangely feel like they are like him or that he is like them, when I don't know anyone like him. But he says, 'You and me are the same, and I am being victimized, therefore I understand your experience.' But A, he's not being victimized, and he's like no one — he's born with a gold spoon in his mouth." "Buy the odd thing about the president is that we actually know nothing about him," Colbert said, citing examples. "For a guy who always likes to have a camera pointed at him and always talks about himself, there's very little we can say about him with certainty." At the same time, he said, Trump is "really good at marketing a single idea over and over again, and I'm sure the challenge for real news is to fact-check him more than twice — because the third fact-check sounds like you're being ..." "Petty," Cooper said. "A little bitchy," Colbert countered. "But he'll never stop." Peter Weber
