"Liquid grace, I think you used the word liquid liquid grace. Is that an expression that kids are using these days? Never heard of it. Good fantasy name, maybe. TJ, liquid grace. It's news to me. That is due to all of us here, but great interview with Stephen Colbert. Much more to wrap up this Thursday edition of the rich eisen show when we come back, we will be back shortly to bring it to you looking live. Wrapping up this Thursday edition of the rich eisen show Susie Schuster in for rich eisen, but you know that by now. You know, in listening to that Stephen Colbert interview, how has he not seen caddyshack? Who hasn't seen not seen caddy show? Especially if you're in the comedy world too, just, I mean, how do you, how does that slip through the cracks of your pop culture wall? Right. I mean, there's a lot of weird things that you haven't seen, but you're seeing caddyshack. One of my favorite movies, I could probably quote it beginning to end. Right. TJ, you've seen it. Yes. Okay. Just checking Jay Philly yes. I watched it about a year ago. But the first time the first time. What have you been doing? He wasn't into it. Wait, hold on. What was the term? Graceful drinking? This is not the first time this happened though. Can you tell us because there's a few movies that we mentioned all the time that you had never seen and then you decided to watch them. So which ones were those again? Well, caddyshack, I watched midnight run and then what's your favorite last boy scout? Wait, way better than midnight run, by the way. So minute run is one of rich's favorite movies. He talks about it all the time all the time. And then it gives me crap when I bring up last boy scout and stuff that I like. You know, De Niro and Charles gross. And it's just kind of dated. I mean, it was funny, but it was like, when it was very long, too. So for two hours. All right, and with caddyshack, it was funny, but like you said, I've heard you guys say every line. So I was like, oh yeah, I feel like I've seen this. Oh yeah, that's what they meant. So it was more like, all right, now I get it, not so much. This is great. The last boy scout you enjoyed. Yeah, a lot of stuff I liked was

"Is a shot that must bounce once before he hit, basically it's the serve and the return serve. And that's when the ball is the flapjack. And then after the flapjack, a lot of people yell opa because now you're into the third shot and you can start volleying. I love the falafel, which is the weak shot. I love the jinx. I love the kitchen. The kitchen. You got to be careful of the kitchen though. Steven, you can't go in it unless the ball bounces in it. I mean, there's a very specific rule. And I don't like here's what I hope that this show can actually bring about Steven is a slander of pickleball that it's for a certain age, a certain age group that it's not really a significant athletic endeavor that it doesn't give you a workout. It's dynamite. I love it. And I can't wait to see this show on there. Fantastic sport is for all ages and I'm saying it right now. I'm putting it on the line. It's going to be in the Olympics in Paris in 2024. And that's because again, it's going to be part of what you're bringing to the equation tonight at 9 p.m. on CBS available to stream live and on demand on paramount plus. What does the Colbert cup look like that this is what they're all battling for this evening. Stephen. What can you tell me? Without giving too much away, it looks a lot like a karate trophy. I mean, I'm not saying I'm not saying that we left it to the last minute and had a little trouble finding something that was app pickleball trophy. Yes. And that karate trophies are readily available. In Los Angeles? Yes. But if some people mistake it for a karate trophy, I wouldn't blame them. You may have just named and made a reference to the only 80s movie that Kenny Loggins did not sing the theme song to right there. Stephen, if I had to guess. Right then and there. Just a couple of questions outside of all this that I do have for you. What is it like for you to go to work in the Ed Sullivan theater every day? My God, what a blessing. Because you're so busy doing the show. You can sometimes forget and then and then but then some days you go out to say hi to the audience and you look up and you see that extraordinary dome and you know the history of the place or like when you have McCartney on and you realize, oh wow, he's sitting essentially where they play in the 1960s. It's a complete privilege. It's an honor. It's an honest to God Broadway theater is the thing. That's what it started at. The Hammerstein theater. And from 1927, in the inaugural show, the very first American performance of an actor named Archie leach was on that stage. You know him as Cary Grant. Right. Literally like the history of that place is extraordinary. And now you get to perform there every single night and do a show that the whole country sitting down to watch. And then obviously that's right. The whole country watches. It's true, man. It's the true 130 million people every night. It's the truth, Stephen. It's my job to hype. I'm your hype man right now. Coming from The Daily Show. When did you first meet Jon Stewart? You got a story on that front. Your first time you ever met him? First time I met Jon Stewart. First time I met John Stuart when he was announced that he was going to be the host of The Daily Show. Because when it was announced in the what was announced in the press, my wife, Evie, it turns out, and I didn't know this. She knew him back from when he was a struggling comic in New York. She was a struggling actress in New York, and she knew him from I think it was the roommate of the guy her roommate was dating. And so he'd be at some of their parties. And his roommate was a stand up as well. And when she said, what you saw that John, she said, John's picture. And she went on leave with, is not funny. And then, and then because his roommate was the funny one, and John says, it's true. My roommate was the funny one. I was the guy in the corner, nursing, and I'm still light afraid to talk to anybody. So I didn't meet him, but my wife did. And then when it was announced that because I'd worked for Craig kilburn, I'd work for the original daily show. And that's really where I learned my love of sports broadcast. And when it was announced, the genre be those, I watched that they were about to do this press conference over a Comedy Central and that wait a second. Isn't that something The Daily Show would cover? So I went over there. I just said, hey, can I have a mic in a camera guy? And so I went over there and I asked a question of the network head. Dark Herzog. And I said, Doug, Stephen Colbert's daily show. This announcement today of Jon Stewart. How does that impact my chances of being the next host of The Daily Show? And John turned to Doug and said, you said he wasn't funny. And a friendship was born to the point where he played drums on your show just this past week. It's a long love affair. It is that. And I would have guessed you would have gone back to Chicago, right? You used to do second city with Steve Carell, is that where you met him? Back in the day too. And I met a second city. We're on stage there together. It's unbelievable. That is pretty cool, man. Look, congrats on pickled, sir. And I look very much. I can't wait for people to see it. I look forward. Is there going to be a season two of pickled? Is this just a one off? I mean, as you know, pickleball can't just be contained, it is growing. What do you think? I think this is I think this is the start of an empire. I'm not going to lie to you. Okay. I'm all in on pickleball. Well, as long as they could keep making Colbert cups, I think we continue it. The proceeds benefit the nonprofit comic relief U.S. correct that happens as well. Everybody remembers comic relief from back in the day when Whoopi Robin Williams and Robin and Billy were up there on HBO for the special. They've never stopped. People think of them as red nose day now in the United States, but comic relief has never stopped. And I really believe this organization, the Richard Curtis created and they distribute hundreds of millions of dollars to children and families that need. And besides the fun we're having, we're going to raise a lot of money for a fantastical and remember the holidays are coming. Santa is watching. Okay, so get on that good list. I look forward to that. I look forward to this. You see on screen, my Friends. I look forward to that. And we'll put it up there as well, best we can. Thank you. No, thank you, Stephen Colbert. I appreciate you calling in and I look forward to all of this. And I look forward to Paul scheer and Tig Notaro battling it out together. That'll be great. Did she know anybody else there? Because that was one of her Comedy Central shows. I actually was one of those guests she had no idea who the hell I was when I came out on that program. She had no clue. None. Is that what it is or don't ask to have to go with the name of that show was. Yeah, I think under a rock with something like that. I think dirks Bentley is going to rock your world. I think you're going to be pretty surprised about a liquid grace of max Greenfield. It's going to be fantastic. And we also have mystery guests. We have mystery players. Mystery. Gotta watch it. Find out who they are. Fantastic. Thanks for the call Stephen Colbert. I look forward to seeing pickled tonight on CBS at 9 Eastern Time and you can check it out also on paramount plus, which is available right here on Roku. Thanks for the call, sir. Thank you, Richard. You bet at Stephen at home on Twitter and Instagram right here on the rich eisen show.

"The man who is putting it all together is the ten time Emmy Award winner in Peabody Award winner and host of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Stephen Colbert, the host of pickled on CBS tonight. How are you, sir? I'm doing great. I'm absolutely carbonated with excitement about tonight's show. I can't wait. I can't believe we finally get to show it to people. Well, I'm excited to see it because I adore pickleball. I played every single week. I can't get enough of it. And then just the people that you have put together and the teams that you've put together and the humor that you're clearly bringing to it. Why did you a big avid pickle baller? Stephen Colbert? Well, rich, first of all, when people thanks to people bear, they think sports. I know that. Yeah. Yes, indeed. My wife last year, my wife gave me a pickleball set. And I said, what is it? As you said, we have to do, we have all our Friends play, we have to play this. And two weeks later, the president of my production company Carrie biley said, hey, funny or die once told us to go to CVS to do a celebrity pickleball charity tournament. Do you know what that is? I said, yes, I play pickleball. No. I love being on the cutting edge of things. And so we know a wave when we see one and you know I love talking about current events. And this is a crossover. It's sports and what's happening now. And I said, hell, yes. Literally, the day we went into pitch to CBS, The New York Times that had said pickleball is ready for prime time. Yes, and so I guess this is a pickleball blue court wave. Is that what you're saying that we're seeing on CBS? Yeah. 100%. Okay, very good. And I don't even know where to start, man. Let's start with the national anthem. You and Kenny Loggins are performing the national anthem for this tonight. We go straight through the danger zone, take a right and put corner and then go center court and sing the national end. In front of the guy, the man still can bring it. I bet he can. So, you know, I got to be honest with you. I'm a caddyshack guy. That's who I think of. That's the movie I think of when I think of logins. Steven, you know? I think of that movie. All right. That's it. I think of the dancing chipmunk. Something I never thought I would ever talk about with you. I will confess to you a big hole in my knowledge of world culture. I've never seen caddyshack. Oh. MG. Is the kids might say, are you serious? I've never seen The Shawshank Redemption. I've never seen caddyshack. I've never seen one of the best curious movies. And what I want to do is I want to sit down and I want to watch. I want to watch caddyshack. I'd love to watch all the Raja deja field, but of course I can't. No. I want to watch it with the cast. That would be fun. Yeah, Bill Murray, obviously, still around. Ted Knight comedic genius, unfortunately, no longer with us as well. But exactly. It stands. It stands the test of time though. Pickleball, see how I kind of worked that one back to back to home here. Thank you, sir. Again, you've got the celebrity element. You've got the comedy element. Emma Watson partnering with Sugar Ray Leonard. It is the craziest partnership I've ever seen somehow it works. They're devastating together. And I think the person that's going to shock everybody is what a competitor is. And I'm not joking. Emma Watson is the best player out there. Right. Hermione Granger, clearly the best. Yeah, she's bringing her Hogwarts. Sensibility to this partnership called the volley ranchers. I love some of these team names. Kelly Rowland and Marty Murray Bartlett, who's mister white lotus. Dink Floyd. I like that one. We had Luis Guzman on my show yesterday, talked about his pairing with Daniel Dae Kim called Daniel day Luis. I love that one. I love that one. They play off their left foot. As Daniel Day-Lewis is to staying in character. They drink the really believe you really believe they were playing pickle ball the whole time. Yes. And they drink the milkshake of max Greenfield and Jimmy Allen. I'm sure the team dill I am. I love it. This is fun. And then you got Bill raftery to do the analysis as well. You bet. Bill raftery, who at times, I will admit. Yes. Was that entirely clear what was happening on court, but you know what he brought the spirit of sportsmanship and sports broadcasting to the broadcast. Love the sports coat too, outstanding sport coat, Steven. And we're seeing a photograph of it right now. Those stripes are very slender, I think. How good are you at pickle? How good are you? Seriously. Listen, I would say on a scale of one to two, I'm a one. Come on. So that's close to being a two. Come on now. Because I think that's the reason pickleball that the best player in the world is about 5 centimeters. Is that there's no real sense of intimidation when you get on the court. It's just a ton of fun. To get better at it, but there is a limit to how good you need to be to be pretty critical. I do love it. I play it seriously every week with my poker buddies, Steven. We get out there and we're very competitive and I'm never out of a point. We play for pride. And if pride might put an Andrew Jackson or 5 on it, it's possible. Sure. But my nickname when I play because I never give up on a point is la cucaracha. That's what I've been called Stephen. I figured I'd share that with you. Because one of my favorite things about pickleball is the, I love the terminology. I love it. You know the flapjack is?

"It feels weird. It feels like the Titans just because it feels weird. I don't know. There's a couple like the Giants are favored by a point and a half over the lines at home. Why is Green Bay favor tonight? Probably based off of the game against the cowboys, but then the cowboys are favored against the Vikings in Minnesota after their win against buffalo. It's just weird. And it feels like Tennessee has been under the radar. These shows focus on the packers and the cowboys. That's basically it. And therefore, nobody has an opinion on anybody else in the NFL. It's like the Lakers in the NBA. Nobody focuses on anybody else. It's like, it's the Lakers. Well, they're not any good. So what? They'll get clicks. And I think Tennessee has always been one of those teams that there's not much excitement there. They're just a great football coach and they somehow win games, but I would go with Tennessee just because it feels weird. Dan, thank you. Appreciate you calling in. And a long while. And if you decide you don't want that tequila, you know where I live. That's where your husband being a baller should be able to go, hey, honey, I've got your tequila. I'll get it for you because I love you. That's what he should say. If he really cared about you. Well, that's up for debate, isn't it though? 25 years later, that's up for debate. Have a great day. Love to Sue. Bye, Dan. So guys, do you know this that has reached ever told you this that in his first sports center segment has he told you about this story before so stop me if he has? Let's keep going. So you know dance, the driest human being on the planet, right? I mean, just love him desperately. And so which gets recruited to ESPN. He's 26 years old. He's excited. It's his first SportsCenter. He walks by Berman, he walks by all these people there, and he walks by Dan on the way to the sports center set, you know, which is like shiny with his big floppy head of hair and he's wearing the one jacket he has on the one tie and the one shirt and Dan looks at him and he says so nervous. Like that. And he says his blood went cold. Because you know, Dan's so dead pin, you just don't know what. This is messing with you. Veterans Day comes every year, but companies rarely think veterans in a way that's meaningful for all of us, veterans deserve to be thanked the most. They serve to keep us

"But I think it probably impacted their tour, but they wanted to take on, I don't know if it was ticketmaster or not. But this is wrong. This is wrong to do this. Dan Patrick here on the rich eisen show Susie Schuster inference eisen. Dan, I was listening to you on the way down. And I was concerned that you were throwing Sioux under the bus on the pickleball conversation. And I thought of this because Stephen Colbert will be up in a taped interview coming up there, Richard taped yesterday. And I'm wondering what kind of pickleball player you are, Dan, because you basically kind of sold. You kind of sold suit down the river on that one, saying that she didn't want to win. I know your wife, she's Italian. She's feisty. There's a fire in there. And I'm just wondering if you could give us a little bit more insight into that match against those two aggressive women from outer Greenwich. Well, we were at a spa. And they had all these different things. It's one of those healthy spiritual retreats that my life wanted to go on, where it's all vegan and all these things that are healthy and healthy, data mined and all of those things. My zen, you know, listening to my inner voice. All of the things, I'm relaxed and my wife goes, hey, I'd like to try pickleball. Never played pickleball. Go out on the tennis court. They got it all set up. And then you're kind of pairing off with two other people on the other side. Well, we don't even know the rules. We don't know anything about it. And then there was an instructor. And then we started playing. Well, the two women, on the other side, they had played they were really good. And I thought that they were a little too competitive. And so I said to my wife, who's not competitive that way. I said, huh, I got to take matters into my own hands here. So the family legacy is at stake, and she goes, no, no, no. Don't be that person. I go, no, hon. They need to be taught a lesson. And I did. I taught him a lesson. Those women from Greenwich, Connecticut, I taught him a lesson. And hopefully they'll learn from. Were you the kind of dad that you wouldn't let your kids win? Yeah, but still that kind of dad. Yeah. You realize one time I said to my kids and they were probably ages 8, 7 through 14. And there's four of them. And I said, if nobody can beat me in a foot race, no Christmas gifts. And my wife's watching this. And she goes, don't do this. I go, no, no, it'll be funny. And so I beat him in a race. They all fall down crying because they don't think there's any Christmas. And then I said, no, no, no, there is. I'm joking. Oh my God. I was the worst dad on the block. Shoots and ladders. If I played shoots and ladders, I'd be competitive. And my wife would just say, you can let them win. I go, no, no, I can't. I have a problem with just letting you win because I grew up with a family that they didn't let you win. So I got to stop one day and just go, come on, you're a grown ass man. What are you doing? No, you don't. You don't have to stop, Dan. No, you don't. We live in a bunch of softies out here. No, you don't. No, I know. Well, the women in Greenwich, they deserve to be taught a lot. Wait, were you talking trash to the women, or are you just giving looks? No, no, I know there were too many people in my life with never allow that to happen. But I just spent some things back with a little bit more urgency when we were playing pickleball. I had to let them know that there's a new lifeguard here at the pool, and it's me. So you shot a lot of shot to the ankles. Is that what happened? You were hoping she'd throw her back out when she went down for it? No, just looking for winners. That's all I was trying to do. A little heat on it. That was it. And because they were firing my wife, the backhand, and she didn't know how to play. We just picked up the thing. And then I thought, all right. I'm going to take care of most of these shots. And they were coming. I was the guy who was dominating the whole side of the court in pickleball. I mean, sad. But still, it was an athletic achievement at my age and having an artificial name. No, that is true. Every so often when Cooper eyes and gets a little too testy on the tennis court, I'll zing it right at him. And then I'll give it a fist bump. Like, wait in his face. Yeah. Like a Tom Brady. Let's go. Mom, mom. You want that? You want that bowl? You gotta be on that wall. I have some issues, Dan. I'm not sure if you're aware of that, but I mean, I've only known you for 30 years, but yeah. I'm gonna work on it when rich comes back. Maybe I'll go to a spa. Yeah. Go home. All right. Thanks, Dan. Anything else? Let's do this again. Next time, next time rich is out. Can you just let me know? I'll be here. All right, so ten O two tomorrow. Is that right? Yeah. Oh, that's right. You're in the chair for a while. I'm in the chair for the next couple of days. I'm in the chair, and then Dan, we're going Xander and rich who are supposed to go to lizzo on Friday night, so I said, I would take him no thanks, mom. He chose his dance teacher. He said, I don't know anything about lizzo. Wow. Whatever. I mean, I'm about that something or other, right? It's about that. I'd love to go see lizzo. I'd love to go see lizzo, I'd love to go see Taylor Swift. I'd love to go see Harry Styles. Oh, I'm going to Harry Styles. Back off. He's a little too aggressive there. Wow. I am going to that one. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry, not sorry. Olivia Wilde from the show today. Sorry, I was nodding off from the hair sounds what I'll go to that one. Yep. We're going to SC UCLA on Saturday. It's a big weekend out here in the eisen household and which will be playing shotgun from the TV clicker, I think. A couple days off. He needs to sleep off the jet lag. Titans packers, Dan, who you got real quick.
The Federalist's Emily Jashinsky on Shifts in Media Culture
"Think that any of this is going to change? I mean, Brian stelter is now flipping burgers somewhere. Cuomo is declared himself a free agent on social media despite the fact that nobody actually wants to hire him. Have you seen any trend any signals since you have the culture beat of the federalists that media culture is waking up or is it just the most woke of the woke are losing, but the institutions like CNN are still going to go down with the ship? The business model here is really an interesting aspect of that conversation because on the surface you do see some moves like at CNN, the new guy there, Chris licht, who took over for Jack Zucker, wants to make CNN the sort of global neutral brand again that's doing serious hard hitting foreign reporting. That's why stelter's out the window. That's why I didn't do it doesn't do Twitter doesn't really believe in Twitter for journalists and is trying to make all of these moves to reign in the coverage to tell his anchors to stop using the big lie, but it's not working. And the dynamic is so interesting because I think there are some older, more sober voices who lived through the old media period and have seen the transition and are horrified by it, but it's kind of too late because they've let it in the door. And they've let it in the door at a time when our media ecosystem is totally splintering. So The Old Guard is less powerful than it ever has been and people can cluster in these niches. The wine moms can watch Don lemon and lap it up and Stephen Colbert, but you know, you used to have Johnny Carson's writers sitting in Manhattan every night thinking, what is going to make America laugh? And that's why he was number one. And he was
Stephen Colbert Calls FBI Mar-a-Lago Raid 'Christmas'
"Here is Stephen Colbert in his monologue last night on CBS. What was it today? It was like 96° outside. Thank you all for standing up in this heat and being here tonight. Of course, it may be hot out there. You're the heroes. They hydrated. It may be hot outside, but in here, it's Christmas. 'cause yesterday, we all got the present we wanted. FBI agent three. That's the most beautiful sentence America has ever produced. Right up there with we put cheese inside the crust. Kind of makes your skin crawl, doesn't it? The man literally giggling like a teenage school girl. FBI agents raided Mar-a-Lago. If you want to want to consider the most tone deaf reaction, imaginable, that would be it. But that, but he's saying out loud what they're all thinking on the left.
The Unfair Attacks on Josh Hawley Have Nothing to Do With January 6
"Re opt to my. Comment on Saturday that this is unintentionally quite revealing. It's a Tim Graham of media busters clip of Stephen Colbert and Chris Hayes talking to each other. Demonstrating the ill effects of the blue bubble on people without legal or training legal training or knowledge of history. I mean, they are living in a blue bubble where they hear one thing and one thing only which is the one 6th committee is a great success. It's not. Got low viewership as national events go. And it's not changed any minds to any significant degree. And it deeply unfair and the American people know it's deeply unfair. And that deep unfairness was best demonstrated by the sideswipe of Josh hawley, who has got nothing to do with what Trump did or didn't do on January 6th, the former president's conduct allegedly the point of the hearing on Thursday night, but they began with a clip of Mitch McConnell to run him over and they ended with one of Josh hawley to shame him and my hypocrite, nonsense, by the way, for mobs coming at you on the other way did not call on people to take over the capitol. Just pure two minutes of hate, George Orwell stuff, if you've read 1984. But I genuinely don't think that Chris Hayes and Stephen Colbert have any idea what they're saying.
The Unintentional Revelations of the Left
"Saw a tweet from Tim Graham over at news busters that got my attention. And Tim Graham over at news busters had a clip of Chris Hayes of MSNBC, smart lefty, Stephen Colbert, funny lefty, talking to each other on Stephen Colbert's Late Show, which Greg gutfeld now beats every night in a revolution against late night being overtly political. Stephen Colbert is very, very left wing and therefore he's very, very political and sent her right America won't watch him. And NBC hadn't figured this out yet. No one's figured out. Why does no one trust elevation 'cause everyone's overtly political and they don't tell you. But sometimes in exchange can be unintentionally revealing. So I posted this on Saturday with just that comment. It's not much of a comment, right? It just says, this is an intentionally quite revealing.
Caller: Zeldin's Attacker Is Free, Jan. 6 Detainees Still in Isolation
"Person not to be called a gentleman that attacked congressman Zelda last night. Okay, he got released right in the middle of the night. Yet those people that were taken in and put under arrest on the January 6th, a lot of them haven't been able to see their lawyers or their families yet. And this is this, how long, you know, that's just so right. You're so right. You're so correct. There's no words. There are no words, there are people rotting in jail because of their trespassing and their lawlessness on January 6th. One of these things is not like the other. What's worse? Walking through and I'm not saying everybody just walked through the capitol. But what's worse? There are some people being prosecuted for being where they didn't belong, right? Not if you're Stephen Colbert's film comedy crew, not if you're a Trump supporter. But if you hop up on a stage with a weapon and try to assassinate a sitting U.S. congressman who's running for governor, you're sprung almost immediately.
No Charges For 'Late Show' Crew Arrested on Capitol Hill
"Of you are pretty upset about this Colbert story and you should be. Stephen Colbert's 9 gets off. Meanwhile, January 6th defendants are in solitary confinement. Why are we putting up with this? And how many of you say, well, Charlie, there's nothing that we can do. It's largely true. But we have to use political power over we have it to try to fix some of this. Equal protection clause. Why hasn't a state attorney general indicted Hunter Biden for some of his crimes? I guarantee you he's broke some of the crimes of some Republican state. Some prostitute brought across state lines from Arkansas to Tennessee or wherever. You see, the left thinks were weak. They protect their own. The Department of Justice drops charges when it's somebody on their team and right now, Steve Bannon is in front of a jury, potentially to go to jail for contempt of Congress, Peter Navarro will soon follow. They raided James O'Keefe's apartment. They raided Rudy Giuliani's apartment. James Comey and Lisa page and Peter strzok are all walking free laughing at us.

"Look at the corrupt United States department of injustice Look at the corrupt U.S. attorney graves Oh he's not corrupt then what is he What is he The blaze capitol police chief fires back If the U.S. attorney refuses to charge Stephen Colbert's staff arrested a capital office building rights Chris and low How come How come I mean they throw a very wide net on people they're charging old women who have cancer treatment What if you're from Hollywood and you work with Steven coper the U.S. attorney in Washington D.C. graves who has a Democrat hack just like his wife That's right pal And Garland the U.S. attorney general The United States Capitol police revealed new details today alleging Stephen Colbert's staffers repeatedly disobeyed instructions from capitol police officers prior to their arrest repeatedly The news came one day after the U.S. attorney's office declined to charge the staffords From the capitol police referred to as the Colbert 9 Capitol police chief J Thomas manger explained in a letter the production crew was arrested in the longworth House office building After a staffer for representative Jamal Bowman Democrat New York secured his office and called the United States Capitol police emergency phone number To report a disturbance outside the office next to Bowman's That office belonged to representative Lauren boebert Republican Colorado why were they there Because you're a bunch of cheap punks
Tucker Carlson: Two Standards, One Corrupt Justice System
"Patient. And the judge through the book at her. Here was Tucker's take on it last night on Fox News channel's Tucker Carlson tonight. The sentencing judge Lambert admitted he wanted to make an example out of the cell's lady woman. Why? Because he was frustrated that the defendant in a separate case made statements they were quote embarrassing to me. That actually happened. And therefore, because he was embarrassed by somebody else, Lambert decides to take it out on this elderly woman. And that's horrible. That's not justice. It's the opposite. And it gets worse. At the same time, this was happening. The U.S. attorney for D.C. at the same point they were sending an elderly cancer patient to jail, this same U.S. attorney's office announced that they were dropping charges against 9 members of Stephen Colbert's production crew. Now, capitol police had caught this group of producers trespassing inside the longworth House office building on the evening of Thursday, June 16th. We brought it to you when it happened. So they were walking around the capitol complex without authorization. Parading, that's a crime. Now, capitol police had warned Colbert's producers that they were restricted area, but they ignored the warning from police. They returned anyway with the help of several members of Congress. That would include Adam Schiff and Jake auchincloss. But the other day, the U.S. attorney for D.C., a Biden appointee called Matthew graves, said that they're allowed to walk with no charges. So here are the new rules. If you're a regime propagandist, you can do whatever you want. You can trespass in the capitol. You won't be charged by Joe Biden's prosecutor. But if you're an elderly cancer patient who votes the wrong way, you go to prison. Those are two standards. One justice system. That's corruption.
Stephen Colbert Crew Won't Be Charged After Capitol Arrests. WHY?
"You're not allowed to walk inside the capitol or the capitol complex unescorted. That's not permitted. And yet that is exactly what the Colbert staffers did. They were, they were told by the capitol police to leave. They did not leave. Now, they were subsequently arrested, and they were arrested for honor at the rise. Well, you could say berating inside the cap and if all this sounds vaguely familiar, it should be. These are the exact charges that are launched against nonviolent January 6th defendants. You were inside the capitol. You're not supposed to be. And you were walking around on escorted. The building was officially closed, and yet you were in there. This is a violation of law. And you have people confined incarcerated, given sentences of prison. I think, for example, of the grand mom that we had on the podcast just a few days ago Pam hemphill, 69 years old, maga grandma, so called. She was actually pushed into the capitol. She wasn't trying to sort of hide in there. In fact, no one asked her to leave. And after a brief time in the capital, she leaves. She takes off. She's out of there. Didn't harm anybody didn't do anything. And she's serving, I think the second of a 60 day prison sentence. Now, in the case of the Colbert defendants, they were asked to leave. And yet they didn't leave. So you would think that the DoJ would say, but at least to maintain some semblance of consistency at least to convince the country that we're not applying the law in one sided way, we should have misdemeanor charges against these guys. But no, they decide no charges at all.
Cancer Patient Gets Jailed, Not Colbert Nine, Over Capitol Intrusion
"An elderly woman, and by the way, how old is she? Because I don't think she's elderly. I'm so sick of hearing people in their 60s described as elderly, because we ain't elderly. Stop saying that people of those of us on our 60s are elderly. But that's the headline that and Derek thinks everybody who's 60 or above is elderly, because Derek, my producer has a headline. Tucker says an elderly cancer patient gets jailed for trespassing the capitol while Stephen Colbert's team gets no charges that's corruption. It is corruption. It's a complete, it's a complete double standard. Everybody knows it. Everybody gets it. Everybody recognizes it. They call them the Colbert 9. There were 9 staff members of Stephen Colbert's unfunny TV show, Hannity said if it had been the Hannity 9, you guarantee you they'd be arrested. Listen to what Tucker said about the sentencing of a 69 year old woman and again, hey Tucker, hey Derek, hey all you young whippersnappers ain't nothing elderly about 69. Shut up. Punk. 69 is elderly. Makes me so mad. And now get off my lawn and I'm going to keep the wiffle ball that went into my yard. Go away. You're a young kid. Yeah, you're wild, kid you?
"stephen colbert" Discussed on WTOP
"Members, the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, were arrested at the U.S. capitol. Now we're learning they will not be facing any charges. A spokesperson for the U.S. attorney's office says it won't move forward with misdemeanor charges because the conviction is not likely. Police say back on June 16th, the group was arrested on unlawful entry charges because members of the group had been told several times before they entered the congressional buildings that they had to remain with the staff escort inside the buildings, and they failed to do so, but prosecutors say it's not probable conviction could be obtained and sustained given that the 9 arrested had been invited in that their escorts had never asked them to leave the building. Officials with the U.S. capitol police say they respect the decision, Acacia James WTO P noose. A local popular TV news anchor now has to blow into an ignition interlock device before starting his car following an arrest earlier this year for driving under the influence. NBC four anchor, Leon Harris spent ten days in jail and says, now he wants to make amends and regain trust. I thought that, you know, after having about four glasses of wine, I was good. Harris tells NBC four colleague doreen gensler. How was it? And nobody's going to be good after that. He was involved in a car crash. Harris says he didn't think it would be a problem to exchange information with the driver and continue the short distance home. Sober Leon sitting here is like, yes, that's a problem. That night? No, it wasn't. And that was my judgment was that that impaired. Harris is now in therapy three hours daily and wants to regain the trust of those he let down. And the only way I can do that is
No charges for 'Late Show' crew arrested on Capitol Hill
"A video crew for a late night TV show will not face criminal charges in a case that got national attention last month Federal prosecutors have decided not to bring charges against 9 people associated with the Late Show with Stephen Colbert The crew from the CBS show was arrested and an office building in the U.S. capitol complex last month the U.S. attorney's office in Washington says prosecutors can not make that case stick because the crew was invited and that their escorts never asked them to leave the building Their rest came after a hearing of the house January 6th
Stephen Colbert Film Team Arrested Near US Capitol
"In a rather bizarre episode, a film team dispatched by Stephen Colbert, coming out of California. Was arrested for unauthorized entry into the U.S. capitol. Now, right away, we have to think about the parallels to January 6th. Evidently what was happening here is that the Colbert film team was in town to attack Republicans. What else? And the Colbert film team was kind of in cahoots in league with at least a couple of key Democrats. Adam Schiff, it seems, was the guy who let them into the building. And but they were also removed from the building. They were asked to leave. At that point, apparently, Jake auchincloss Democrat from Massachusetts, let the team back in. So you can see these Democrats are working with these Colbert film guys. Julie Kelly calls them calls the Colbert film team Democratic Party activist disguised as a kind of film team for Colbert's show. What were they there to do? Dual comedy routines that ridicule trumpsters.
Stephen Colbert Remains Defensive About Staffers' Arrests
"He is very defensive about what took place with his staff He's the kingpin behind it obviously With his 7 staffers were arrested They rested because they defied the Capitol Hill police and you would think that with all the security there and walled all the attention given to January 6th that Colbert and his conga linea leftists would know better But they don't Because they think they're above the law They know they'll never have to pay the price So his staffers were arrested They spent a few hours in their D.C. jail and they were released And they flew back to New York I wonder if along the way they saw some of the January 6th trespassers In the D.C. jail probably not since summer in solitary confinement The U.S. attorney in Washington D.C. is a hack He worked on the Biden campaign he's a hack and his wife is a hack And so it really is unimaginable that there would be equal justice Equity I think we call it now The way AOL is regurgitating this And they pick it off from Yahoo entertainment On Monday is the Late Show with Stephen Colbert Open by addressing the arrest of some of the staff in the capital complex late last week The crew were there with Robert schmiegel who voices triumph the insult comic dog covering the January 6th hearings Covert said that both Republicans and Democrats were willingly interviewed So what
Monica Crowley: Stephen Colbert's Team Broke the Law
"Wrote this on social media yesterday. I am among those calling for congressional hearings. I want to hear triumph the insult comic dog testify under oath. Yes, wouldn't that be something? You know, that's sorry, dog. Monica Crowley, I have to tell you, I don't know why. That guy, Robert smigel, that guy, gets under my skin, but they cornered me at one of the political convention years ago, and I ended up being on, was it Conan O'Brien? I think at the time, I can't remember, I think trying up started with Conan. But I ended up being a part of their huge comedy attack hit piece. It was very unpleasant. Yeah. No, I think I remember that, Todd, when they sort of cornered you and ambushed you on that look, they play according to their own rules. They do what they want, call their last night was trying to dismiss the whole thing. It's just jokes and my team doing their job. No, you were trespassing at the U.S. capitol. Which is what you were plastering the January 6th protesters for doing, right? Well, I'm not the president trying to cite an insurrection. Oh, come on. It is either break a law or you don't break the law. We either have rule of law or we don't have rule of law. And in this country, there has been a widespread widespread breakdown of the respect that we have for our institutions, but that didn't just materialize tots. That's a direct result of the fact that our institutions have been failing us. You can not have a healthy functioning republic when you do not have the equal application of the law. Lady liberty and lady lady justice is supposed to be blind. She's blindfolded for a reason. And yet now we have it's not an uneven application of the law based on race or gender or anything like that. It's based on your political affiliation.

This judge, this judge claimed that the CDC exceeded their legal authority by requiring masks and that their power was limited to things like cleaning property, not requiring people to take hygienic steps. Yes, you can not force people to follow basic hygiene. You can only make them clean property, explains the new bathroom sign before returning to work, employees must wash this sign. The judge, sure. The judge not fighting for ruling, explaining wearing a mask, cleans nothing. At most, it traps virus droplets. That's the mass job you dummy. So my droplets don't get on you. That's like saying this diaper is useless. Every time I put one on my baby, it fills up with poop. That's not doing anything. Oh, maybe a little funny.

"Juvenile crime problem. We've got to deal with all the car thefts. And so why don't we got to stop coddling criminals? Put those words coming out of the mouth of a Democrat, and I think that they'd be winning words. When you see liberals go. I mean, I just never seen an issue in which the left Really everybody has turned as fast as this one has been those of us who thought that this is a crackpot idea from the beginning. I don't think we've ever been able to say I told you so faster than this one. I mean, seriously. Remember all those people marching in the streets in Milwaukee? Do you find the police? When's the last time you even saw what if I'm holding up a sign that said to fund the police boy, It's like it. Never. It's like Oh, we didn't really say that. Bill still ripped the police when there's a shooting and so on, But that's the fun thing. They've dropped that I mean, and we all know why crimes exploded everywhere that the police were defunded. They painted in other streets. They did. They painted it down the street and now they're saying it was the Republicans that wanted to do it. I think about that. That's a Pelosi said. Pelosi said it was the Republicans who wanted to find them like there are any Republicans with the spray cans painting that in the middle of the street anywhere. There's a story in the news. I may revisit this a little bit later on. I don't know. It's telling. It's a big deal. The story in and of itself is not a big deal, but what it tells us is a huge deal. Here's what's not a big deal. Who's got the most watched late night TV talk show. But who it is, is why it's a big deal. Did you follow that? You don't know what I'm talking about, Do you? Yeah, well, that's why it's a big deal. See, It's not a big deal that anybody's watching in show, but it's a big deal that that's the show. That's number one. Let me explain. There's Yeah, and I had a I literally had to download a story to remember who all the late night talk show hosts are. I mean, I guess I knew that dopey Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon were out there, but I keep forgetting who does the CBS show I bed. Is it? Is it Stephen Colbert? I mean, those They just changed so many times. I know that. What's his name with the red hair? He's finally off the air. Right? Conan O Brien show ended about a year ago, didn't it? Yeah. Anyway. The number one rated late night. Talk show in American television is Greg Gutfeld show. And Fox. His show is about three months old. What we don't know is whether or not he'll be able to sustain it. A lot of these shows come out of the box drawing, and a year later. You know they fade a bit. His ratings are higher than Kimmel. They're higher than Fallon. And their higher than the CBS Late Night show, which I think is still hosted. By Stephen Colbert. That to me is extraordinary. The explanation to me is obvious. If you watch any of those shows, they're all doing the same thing. They're all bashing still bashing Trump. They're all ripping conservatives. They all have the same left wing point of view. Except gut Felts. I've explained this 90 million times that I'm gonna explain it again. Why Are there no liberals doing talk radio because nobody wants to listen to a liberal and you can get liberalism anywhere. It's such an obvious point, and it is amazed me forever that nobody in the media for no other reason than sure. Greed hasn't done it. You put a concern. Now, remember, you have to have talent. You can't just put a conservative on the air like Trying to think of an untalented conservative that I could name Well said Oh, boy, watch out. Could it be? Could it be local? Well, let's suppose I won't pick out anybody here you're an untalented could serve. I mean, if you're not any good, it doesn't matter what your ideology is. People aren't going to listen or watch the program that you put on. So presuming you have talent. If you're a conservative, you are given a proper platform and again. I mean, it's got to be a good show with good production values and so on. You will succeed. It's amazing. That there hasn't been a major late night talk show hosted by a conservative until Gutfeld came on. I'm in a rush Limbaugh had a syndicated show back in the early nineties. When's the last time you can recall a conservative having a late night doing one of the late night TV talk shows? I mean, some of them. Johnny Carson were really political left. They were political or barely left of center for a little bit, It would sneak out. But once Letterman and some of the others came out, I mean, there are liberal, liberal, liberal, liberal liberal liberal and Fox gave Greg got filled this show what he does. It's like most of the other late night talk shows. He has people sitting around and did. It's more political than some of the others. But it is what it is. There's like a band that plays music and So odd for the last several weeks each of the last several weeks he's been number one in the ratings. The other three shows are almost tied. In fact, it's amazing how close all the other late night talk shows are The significance of the story is it proves once again that there is an audience out there. For conservative content. And the reason that audience exists is I've explained some million times. It's obvious it's because you can't find it many other places. If there were 9000 people on TV, the newspapers radio doing what I'm doing what I be as big a deal it no. Clearly not..

But we're corral and Colbert were their second city guys. That's right they were second city instructors way back in the nineties. They were long-term instructors. I mean those guys you know. Come in colbert come in and was at north western state and career okay then from the east coast and they were you know performance but they made their living as instructors at second city.

Talking about david sedaris right who you weren't super familiar with but i know everybody else's from always great books so david sedaris and his sister. Amy sedaris came to new york in the early nineties. With a guy named steve. Kobe and they started putting on these crazy. Little shows in the just the lowest of the lowest of east end in new york city. They david would write these crazy. Plays like one woman shoe or stitches and would feature amy. My favorite one was amy. Sedaris is like a sitcom character like roseanne character but she had a horrible waterskiing accident or face went right into the top of the boat and her face. she didn't play. Her face is completely stitched. Up like a volleyball and then like kobe. Aarp later male nurse and it was just. I mean it was crazy funny and the people come down a ceiling.

Don't you now feel that Brady really is that great? He's good. He's very good. Absolutely very good. Somebody said what great Brady is great. Well, no other person. No other team is 17 Super Bowl, so he definitely is exceptional. Not give you exceptional. How's that? All right, but check with him two days from a very Brady. That's not him.

This is like Eight years past the expiration date. Well, now it really was the defense for Tampa Bay. That won the game. I know Tom Brady threw a couple of touchdown passes, but the difference in the game was the Tampa Bay defense. Okay. That's true, because they held them to a low score. But it's not like Brady won 10 to 9. It was like 32 to 9, so there was a hell of a lot of offense. Let's say the defense wasn't so good. They scored 27 points, Brady still would have won. You may be to him, Can you? No, no, no. This'd off half the country. Go try to figure this out this Brady Different arrangement syndrome. Did you see the every gets upset about the commercials? Wow. Which commercials? Which commercial? Yeah, That was great 20 years ago, But now you look at these Super Bowl commercials. They're so gimmicky. They just don't gimmicks, and, uh, there's nothing of any substance and you know, in Was one. It had every celebrity 4000 so average by the time it was done. You were amazed how many celebrities they're up on a mountain of this, But you asked me what was the commercial for? They can't remember what it was for. And Stephen Colbert was in it. Did you see Stephen Colbert doing the pro Moe's for his show during the game? Is there anybody that ever has looked more out of place at a football game? That Stephen Colbert exactly? He is the most unfit ball looking guy. He looks like you got lost looking for the math club meeting s so out of place is super Well, that was not good for him, You know, well suffered last night.

Nice person, Very nice person. Pleasant but the most boring woman on television just dreary, drab, her ratings reflected. But now let's be honest. Biden is not the most exciting guy in the world. He's kind of a stiff and kind of dull too. So did you watch the interview? Tow Watch these two E said. That was a sleepy combination when it it was like a dullness competition, and you notice that theatrics of it. They're sitting 15 ft apart and is that your bike has been vaccinated. He's fully vaccinated. And he's tested negative, but she wanted to be 15 ft Apart. Just in case he tries to sniffer, but it was so boring listens to and she you know, they always talked. They try to tell you biting his fun buying this fine by this great What do you mean? Biden said there's nothing wrong with Biden. Then watching the interview. How are you? They talked him like I think he's a baby like to treat him like a like a child and You know that all these questions about their will trump get the briefing. They make not give the intelligence briefings He may not get. I just think that there is no need for him to have that intelligent species. What value is giving him and intelligent appreciate. What impact does he have it all other than the fact he might slip and say something. Oh, yeah, Every point of view prolific. There's nothing in these briefings. There's nothing in the once in a while there's something but generally there's nothing in the briefings. Nobody reads them. They are given as a courtesy to ex presidents and very often the briefing as they same exact stuff every day for 14 days, something they change it like once every few weeks. Bill Clinton didn't take the briefings when he was president. It was almost a year and a half. We never even saw the CIA directors never got a briefing. Obama was famous for not reading them the way they do the briefing. By the way, it's on an iPad. It's a special iPad. There's nothing on it but the briefing, so Officer intelligence officer comes in. If you're a Cabinet member, whoever is going to get the briefing, they come in and give it to you and they stand. In the back of the room, and they wait for you to read. You read it while they're there. When you're done, they take it. The only person who ever gets to be alone with this iPad thing is the president. They'll give it to the president and leave the room. And then later come back and get it. Now this away, they can look in the iPad to see if you read it..
