The only time the pause made sense was at 4:49 where it emphasized the cringe. Otherwise great video, thank you.

    Follow no more lies. trump conned them to over look the crooked deeds he does., Turns out he wasn't who they thought he was., He just left throwing them under a bus., Now listen to most of them being so hush. Maga and Q turned out to be crap., They drunk too much kool aid from the tap., Their big moment took away in a zap. They trigger so easy hear them cry., That's what they get for believing a lie. The rest of us needs to move on, if they don't leave them behind., As they chase more lies and lose more of their mind., Rebuild our country and soon brighter days we will find.

    : 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗨𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲(𝘀) 𝗼𝗳 𝗛𝘂𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗶𝘁 America is in a state of deep scrutiny. So is humanity. Today’s America presents the future state of humanity: If the world advances the way America is advancing, we will end up being divided between two blocs that hate each other in every sense-ideologically, approach to life, culture, education, and every other way. It will be impossible to connect the adversaries, just as it is impossible to connect the Democrats with the Republicans in today’s divided United States. As things are, there will be no calm. It seems as though things have gone out of control, but they haven’t. It is simply what happens when the ego wants to govern and will not hear of anything less than that. It does not want connection; it wants domination. It may be horrifying to watch, but we are merely witnessing the natural process. When everything revolves around who has more and who has less, and when the ego keeps intensifying, we come to a state where the ego wants everything, and to leave absolutely nothing to the other side. This is what you get when you don’t educate people. It doesn’t matter how much you invest in aid packages and relief programs, when the ego comes to a state of all or nothing, nothing helps. Therefore, we should thank America for the example it is giving us, at its own expense. We should thank the American people for setting an example that demonstrates what our future will be like unless we achieve unity among us. In other words, if we don’t achieve a united state in humanity, humanity will become like today’s United States: an assortment of nations, colors, races, and faiths that hate each other to death, and do everything they can to cater to their hatred.

    I read the suggestion somewhere that the FCC needs labels or disclaimers legislation for Opinion networks such as Fox, AON and others. There should be labels like the movie and music industry has... there should be a large scrolling disclaimer every 30 minutes or so that repeats that the show isn't "news" but only represents the opinion of the network and is not pretending to present the truth. I think that this would go a long way towards breaking this cycle for a few of our citizens... for to "re-educate" these folks will be nearly impossible, or will be generational rehabilitation. It is becoming absolutely absurd and disgusting and we cannot continue in the current direction to have a healthy nation. We need to pressure the FCC to place labels on these networks.

    Quarantinewhile transcription - Stephen Colbert, Jon Batiste "Oh, Maybelline, won't you be true? Oh, Maybelline, won't you be true? Start back doing the things you used to do." Welcome back to A Late Show, everybody. Say hello to Jon Batiste. Hello Jon! Yes, indeed, just driving on my V8 Ford. [laughter]Hey Jon, I-I'm worn out from last night's live show. It was exciting. I'm so glad we did it, what a great day, but I'm done. Do you have any energy you could impart through your fingertips into those ivories and inject into my soul? Oh yeah, I'm always put-putting the- I'm pushing the energy. I'm pushing the love. [music] I am- I am born anew. Thank you, Jon. Jon Batiste, everybody. Thank you, Sir. Folks, you know I spend most of my time raising and shearing the most topical sheep, gathering their wool and weaving it on my solid oak story loom. Then dying it with the purest word pigment money can buy to bring you the fine Aran Isles sweater that is my monologue. But sometimes, just sometimes, I like to take a trip down to the garbage patch; snag a raccoon, sedate it with some children's cough medicine, shave its tail with a box cutter, then use some chopsticks to knit it into the trailer park crop-top of news that is my segment: Quarantinewhile. Quarantinewhile, a couple in Canada is facing legal trouble for breaking Québec's new Covid rules. Where walking your dog is one of the only things allowed after 8:00 PM. But, police caught a woman walking her husband on a leash after curfew. Police were going to punish the husband, but he was into it. [laughter] Quarantinewhile, you may already know that notorious cocaine lord Pablo Escobar famously and illegally imported hippos to Colombia. Now, scientists warn Colombia's cocaine hippos must be stopped. Florida, you're up. Release the meth gators for science. Cocaine hippos are like regular hippos but they corner you at parties and insist that you guys should start a band. Problem is, the hippos have no predators and now pose a threat to local wildlife. You can see just how dangerous they are in this footage of the cocaine hippos in action. Coke, woo! I love coke, who wants to read my screenplay? I bet it's so good. Quarantinewhile, in snake news. Scientists discover snakes can turn their bodies into lassos to climb by working their bodies against themselves, as you can see in this infrared footage. Congratulations, spiders who lay eggs in my ears as I sleep, you are no longer my number one recurring nightmare. Quarantinewhile, scientists have announced the discovery of a new bat species in Africa that has a striking mix of fiery orange and black colors; but almost missed it, originally believing it to be just a weirdly colored one. I gotta say, “maybe it's just weird.” is not the most scientific explanation I've ever heard. Reminds me of fossil hunter William Buckland, who discovered the first dinosaur bones. “I may have discovered a previously uncataloged form of prehistoric life. Or maybe they are just some big freaky chicken bones, I don't know." Also, why don't we get done with the current pandemic before we go poking around in the caves for undiscovered bats? You didn't see people in the middle ages going “You know what would take our minds off this plague? A rat safari!” Quarantinewhile in a shocking development, Pepsi and Coca-Cola will not run ads during the Superbowl. So, what are we supposed to watch? Quarantinewhile, a new fossil from China of a Psittacosaurus is so well preserved that the opening that the Labrador-sized dinosaur used to pee, poop, and reproduce is visible. Or as the online publication Live Science put it, “The first preserved dinosaur butthole is perfect and unique.” Unexpected phrasing, but a huge leap forward in dinosaur butthole positivity. The opening in question is the cloaca, common in reptiles and birds. Experts say, “Most cloacas form a kind of slit. Sometimes, it's a vertical slit, sometimes it's a smiley face, sometimes it's a sour face. This thing has a v-shaped structure with a pair of nice flaring lips.” [laughter] And I'm upset to have read that out loud. [laughter] And, is this? And I'm being informed that Gwyneth Paltrow already released ‘This candle smells like a Psittacosaurus cloaca’. When we come back, I'll tell you about the latest game that Hollywood is buzzing about, stick around. [music]
