Last week and over the weekend, we heard stories about Jon Stewart returning to the airwaves on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show to cover the Republican National Convention. Stewart did make an appearance on Monday night, but he was not the object of Stephen Colbert’s desire — after all this is Stephen Colbert we are talking about. The man he sought out and found was, of course, STEPHEN COLBERT! After informing Stewart of the GOP’s choice for President, Colbert (CBS Colbert) and Stewart run through a plethora of Trump’s statements and actions — none of which are very flattering, Stewart goes and gets Colbert … (this will all make more sense when you watch the video below)
Not the Colbert of CBS’s Late Show, but of Comedy Central’s former program that starred the comedic late-night host. After learning of the GOP’s selection of Donald Trump as the nominee (after all, that Stephen Colbert has been ‘off the grid’ since well before Trump began his campaign) ‘Comedy Central’ Colbert triumphantly returned to the studio where the audience at home and in attendance got treated to one of Colbert’s classic segments, ‘The Word.’
And ‘the word’ was ‘Trumpiness.’ It’s sorta like ‘truthiness’ except it doesn’t have to ‘feel’ like ‘truth’ it just has to ‘feel’ — as Colbert artfully explains.
This is a hilarious clip and I don’t want to give away too many spoilers, so check it out HERE (in 2 parts) :
Like it was mentioned before, it was anticipated that Stewart’s return would be the focus of Monday’s episode, but Colbert switched things up nicely. Colbert did say too that no one knows what will happen this week (in the clip) teasing that Stewart will probably be seen more as the week goes on. We can certainly hope so. In the meantime, it was great to see Colbert’s Nation revved up again.
