CBS host Stephen Colbert -- (CBS screen grab)

CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert had a few things to say about the racist Skittle meme posted on Twitter by the son of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump — and none of them were complimentary.

The comedy host shared a picture of the tweet and proceeded to dismantle it and Donald Trump Jr. — whom he referred to as a “guy who promises you a great deal on a 2003 Suzuki Sidekick” — piece by piece.

Noting the odd punctuation of the meme, Colbert quipped, “First off it reads, ‘If I had a bowl of skittle and I told you just three would kill you,’ period.”

“Okay, that’s not right,” he continued. “As in: ‘If you think that is a complete sentence, you must have your head up your.”

Continuing on, Colbert pointed out that the meme was “rip-off posted by a feminist group” using M&M’s, before noting, “Of course the Trump family prefers Skittles because there are no brown ones.”

The segment led up to Colbert explaining to Donald Trump Jr. “why he is wrong in language he can understand,” with the late night host using popular candy brands to get his point across.

Fox News host Sandra Smith pressed Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel on Thursday over the idea that President Donald Trump could be punished with a "mute button" after he repeatedly interrupted Democratic candidate Joe Biden at Tuesday's presidential debate.

During an interview on Fox News, Smith noted that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules due to the constant interruptions at the first debate between Biden and Trump.

"At any point when you were watching the debate, did you wish that perhaps President Trump didn't jump in there as much as he did?" Smith wondered.

Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report

Published

on

According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.

The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
