Colbert hysterically ridicules Trump’s doctor: His letter was ‘yanked from where the sun don’t shine’

Published

Late Show host Stephen Colbert gave his own diagnosis on Monday of Harold Bornstein’s assessment of Donald Trump.

“Bornstein proved he’s a true gastroenterologist because the letter seems like he yanked it from where the sun don’t shine,” Colbert said of Bornstein’s heavily-criticized letter describing the GOP presidential nominee’s health last December.

Colbert pointed out that critics have wondered whether Trump himself wrote the letter, given the use of terms like “astonishingly excellent” and Bornstein gloating that the real estate magnate’s exams had yielded only “positive” results.

“Positive results are always good,” Colbert cracked. “Blood pressure? Positive! Cholesterol? Positive! Chlamydia? Positive!”

Besides the fact that he looked like a “very questionable Gandalf,” Colbert was concerned over Bornstein’s admission that he was “rushed” and “anxious” when he wrote the letter, given that Trump had a driver waiting for him outside of his office.

“Rushed, anxious, five minutes, driver waiting,” said Colbert. “You definitely want the candidate’s physical to sound like losing your virginity on prom night.”

In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.

Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’

Published

Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.

To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.

Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
