Emmys Go Political in First Minute:
Colbert’s Opener Has Trump Treason,
‘Confederate’ Jokes — and Male Handmaids

The Wrap, by Ryan Gajewski

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/17/2017 8:47:35 PM

The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,

Too busy watching NFL for this garbage. The NFL´s disrespect of our country is less than the disrespect shown by Colbert.

I was loathe to even open the article. The "Emmys" devolved to an unwatchable love fest of brainless LIEberals, patting each other on the back, and trying to be more outlandish than the last, many years ago.

I´ve read that Stephen Colbert is supposed to have a high IQ, but he is so blinded by ideology, he wouldn´t know treason if it bit him in the but...however his constant refrain of Impeach Trump borders on sedition.

Maybe, if someone actually cares enough about him, they could send him the dictionary pages for "treason" and "sedition" along with the portion of the Constitution that delineates our Electoral College and how it works...but most of his audience is just as ignorant of how our government works as he is.

Otherwise, he will just be an ideological idiot spouting inanities for the rest of his worthless life.

Truly revolting, completely debasing whatever the awards once pretended to represent.

I suspect the leftists in charge have calculated that the rabid Trump haters, a sliver of the potential audience, are nevertheless a larger segment than they have been able to attract otherwise.

Colbert has been "successful" with this gambit on his own late night show. Rachel Maddow the same.

These so called "award shows" are nothing more than an opportunity for the loaded diaper brigade to pander to their egos, while playing dress up and giving themselves awards for no real reason. Pure waste of time for anyone else..

Government lawyers want a federal judge to block the release of memos written by former FBI Director James Comey about his conversations with President Trump, claiming that disclosing the documents would be “detrimental” to an investigation into Russian interference in the presidential campaign as well as an ongoing obstruction of justice probe. The attorneys made the argument in a court filing submitted late Friday in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed for the Comey memos by several news organizations, including The Daily Caller News Foundation, CNN, and USA Today.

On Friday, Jimmy Kimmel defended his decision not to go after Harvey Weinstein immediately after the scandal broke in an interview with Good Morning America’s Amy Robach, and blamed “gun nuts” for spreading a years-old video of him telling women to grab his crotch, saying it was taken "out of context." Robach interviewed Kimmel after people began calling him out for his alleged hypocrisy for not covering the Weinstein sex scandal on his ABC late night comedy show after having politicized the Las Vegas shooting, and having used his show to speak about the health care debate in recent weeks.

The Washington Post on Friday offered a double dose of creepy as film critic Ann Hornaday called out Harvey Weinstein as a monster, but a monster who made such “important” movies. She also praised a film on the man who created Wonder Woman. It’s a great “love story” about a man, his wife, the other woman and the sex bondage they all loved. To be clear, Hornaday condemned Weinstein for his alleged sexual assaults. But then she went on to praise the man now accused of rape and of exposing himself: “Weinstein’s importance transcended money and power: He allowed an

Erratic winds whipped up flames Saturday, igniting several homes in the town of Sonoma and forcing the evacuations of hundreds of people who, until now, had escaped the terrible wrath of the wildfires that have so far killed 38 people and destroyed 5,700 structures in the Wine Country and beyond. Several homes burned just east of the historic town square in Sonoma as the gusty winds that caused so much havoc earlier this week reappeared before dawn, forcing firefighters to scramble to beat back numerous flare-ups. “There’s a pretty good firefight going on in the field right now,” said Steve

Networks did not broadcast the anthem last week, but Vice President Mike Pence pushed the controversy back into the forefront when he left the Indianapolis Colts-San Francisco 49ers game Sunday when several 49ers kneeled during the anthem.

Comic George Lopez was booed off stage at a gala for juvenile diabetes in Denver last week, over an anti-Donald Trump routine that fell flat with the crowd. We’re told the flap began when Trump backer and Liberty Media CEO Greg Maffei donated $250,000 but requested that Lopez cool it with the anti-Trump jokes at the Carousel Ball. An attendee at the event — where tables sold from $5,000 to $100,000 to benefit the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes — commented on a YouTube video that “George was asked nicely to stop making Trump jokes by a man in front

Despite Chicago’s alarming, if select, murder statistics and routine singling out by President Donald Trump for gun violence, this lakeside metropolis was just ranked one of the safest cities in the world. The Economist Intelligence Unit, a London-based research firm affiliated with the Economist magazine, named Chicago to its 2017 Safe Cities Index, issued Thursday — one of only three US cities to crack the top 20 — largely based on advances in digital security. The annual ranking assesses 60 global cities using four factors: personal safety, health security, digital security and the safety of infrastructure.

No short-term political victory is worth the long-term cultural degradation the president is guaranteeing the GOP. The vast majority of commentary about Donald Trump’s tweets centers on Trump: What do they say about his state of mind? Do they signal a change in American policy? Will he follow through on his threats? Is he a master media manipulator or just angry? Is he playing nine-dimensional chess or is he simply undisciplined and impulsive?

Former President Barack Obama’s foundation mission is “to inspire and empower people to change their world.” So who better to fire up his audience for democratic change than a man whose family has headed the British state by divine right for the better part of 1,000 years? Royal heartthrob Prince Harry — fifth in line to the British throne, behind his niece, nephew, brother and father — is coming to Chicago on Oct. 31 to “empower participants with tools to create positive change in their communities,” according to the Obama Foundation, which will host Harry at its inaugural summit.

The article continues, "The Obama Foundation is taking an unconventional approach to the presidential center and library being planned in Chicago. It´s opting to host a digital archive of President Barack Obama´s records, but not keep his hard-copy manuscripts and letters and other documents onsite." The Chicago Tribune broke the story that, to this point, has attracted no major media attention. Its headline raises much the same question Fox News did: "Without archives on site, how will Obama Center benefit
