With the release of latest film iteration of 'The Great Gatsby' happening today (May 10), the internet has been blowing up with all things Gatsby. Last night's 'Colbert Report' was no exception, with host Stephen Colbert launching the cOlbert (that's not a typo) book club to celebrate F. Scott Fitzgerald's American classic
Stephen Colbert, host of 'The Colbert Report,' poked fun at country singer Brad Paisley's newest song 'Accidental Racist' --in which Brad basically tries to solve racism by teaming up with LL Cool J and doing things like apologizing for that one time he wore a Confederate flag T-shirt because he loves Lynyrd Skynyrd.
To sum things up, with lyrics like "If you don't judge my gold chains / I'll forget the iron chains," it's all pretty awkward.
In response, Colbert took on the gay marriage issue in similar fashion, joining forces with the always adorable Alan Cumming for a song called 'Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe.'
Academy Award-winning actor Jeremy Irons recently had some rather bizarre things to say about gay marriage. Specifically that if gay marriage is allowed, fathers will marry their sons to get tax-free real estate, which is a super logical jump.
What's next? Equality for minorities?
In response, satirist Stephen Colbert had some witty and biting commentary on the matter, and even a message from Koko the Sign Language Gorilla.
Stephen Colbert, who of course spoofs a wingnut conservative on his show 'The Colbert Report,' was shocked and disheartened to learn that FOX's Bill O'Reilly doesn't really give a hoot about gay marriage one way or the other.
Which is pretty shocking considering Bill O'Reilly has spent his whole career hooting about something.
Fans of noted – and hilarious – political satire genius Stephen Colbert have been waiting, in obvious futility, for their favorite faux conservative to run for office for years. Well, they're finally getting a little taste of what it would be like to have a Colbert on the political scene.
Just not the Colbert you’re thinking of.
GOP Representative Marco Rubio was probably hoping he'd be able to skate by with an impromptu sip of water during his response to Barack Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday, Feb. 12, but the worst Poland Spring endorsement ever did not escape the notice of political late-night hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert the following night.
