Did Stephen Colbert Just Have His Worst Week … Ever?

The far-left host is booed, beaten by 'Gutfeld' and revealed as a partisan hack

Conservatives can mock Stephen Colbert all they want, but it hardly matters to the progressive comic.

Colbert has been late night’s undisputed leader for the past few years, and there’s been no serious attempt to dethrone him. He doesn’t need conservatives watching his show, apparently. Nor do the right-leaning slings and arrows pierce his ratings shield.

Plus, the media adores him, regurgitating his anti-Trump material and making sure never to fact check his monologues.

It’s good to be king … until this week.

Fox News’ “Gutfeld!”, a cable show with zero A-list stars and a modest budget, just beat Colbert’s “Late Show” in the ratings for the first time.

The fact that it happened while Colbert ran defense for what might be the biggest foreign policy blunder of the modern age may not be coincidental. Chances are more than a few viewers were curious what a right-leaning comic had to say about President Joe Biden’s blunder as opposed to Colbert’s typical fawning.

It’s also the first of several body blows against the far-left propagandist.

Stephen Colbert quote about MAGA Taliban

This week also saw a damning report saying the Jan. 6 Capitol riots weren’t an insurrection, nor were they egged on by President Donald Trump or any other body.

“Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases,” said a former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. “Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized. But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages.”

That kind of clarity, from a mainstream news outlet no less, is hard to dismiss.

Colbert, like his fellow hard-left hosts and our corrupt press, has been hammering Trump for allegedly trying to overthrow the U.S. government.

Colbert even compared those rioters to the Taliban, showing once more how crooked his moral compass has become.

Now, we know that’s a lie – even if Colbert and co. won’t be apologizing for their political barbs to that effect. Telling more insurrection jokes might please Colbert’s hardcore fans moving forward. Others may start tuning him out. The best jokes have a kernel of truth behind them.

Those are two sizable blows to Team Colbert, but the week wasn’t over for him yet.

Last year, Colbert’s “Late Show” took some goofy jabs at Milwaukee after the Democratic National Convention moved its gala out of the city and into the cyber realm due to COVID-19. Locals didn’t take kindly to the wisecracks.

So Colbert tried to make amends, in person, during a Brewers home game Aug. 20. It didn’t go well, even if far-Left ESPN spun reality on Colbert’s behalf.

Colbert even joined in on the mascot-style fun, dressing up as a hot dog for the stadium’s Famous Racing Sausages.

He came in last.
