Drudge: Trump dominates TV’s biggest night

All eyes were on the Emmy’s yesterday as Trump Hater Steven Colbert hosted the show. As expected it got political. Here are some parts of Colbert’s monologue.

Breitbart:

“What a year it has been for television,” said Colbert, “the industry is booming, there are over 450 original scripted shows made this year. Of course there’s no way anyone could actually watch that much TV, other than the president, who seems to have a lot of time for that sort of thing. Hello sir, thank you for joining us! Looking forward to the tweets.”

“There have never been more platforms to get your TV than right now. You have broadcast, cable, Amazon, YouTube, Hulu, Voodoo, Netflix, Vitamix, Crackle, Crumble, Bumble, and DintyMooreStew.com. Dinty Moore has a 10 episode deal with Martin Scorcese. Rumor is Liev Schrieber is playing a brooding chunk of meat.”

“Of course these days everybody loves streaming video. Just ask Ted Cruz. But knock first, you don’t want to just walk in.”

“But, if we’re honest with ourselves and as artists I think we have to be honest with ourselves, we know that the biggest TV star of the last year is Donald Trump. I mean, I like him. He’s the biggest star. And Alec Baldwin, obviously. You guys are neck and neck. And Alec you’re up against a lot of neck. However you feel about the president, (and you do feel about the president), you can’t deny that every show is influenced by Donald Trump in some way. All the late night shows, obviously. House of Cards. The new season of American Horror Story. And of course next year’s Latin Grammys, hosted by Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Muy caliente.”

“And we all know the Emmys mean a lot to Donald Trump,” said Colbert, “because he was nominated multiple times for The Apprentice, but he never won. Why didn’t you give him an Emmy? I tell you this, if he had won an Emmy, I bet he wouldn’t have run for president. So in a way, this is all your fault. I thought you people loved morally compromised antiheroes. You like Walter White. He’s just Walter Much Whiter. And he never forgave you and he never will.”

“Of course what really matters to Donald Trump is ratings. You gotta have the big numbers. I certainly hope we achieve that tonight. Unfortunately, at this point, we have no way of knowing how big our audience is. Sean, do you know?” said Colbert, as former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer appeared on stage with a prop podium.

“This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys period. Both in person and around the world,” said Spicer.

“Wow, that really soothes my fragile ego. I can understand why he’d want one of these guys around. Melissa McCarthy, everyone, give it up.”

Now, these jokes, as usual, fell flat. They are basically just the Mainstream media’s talking points and a chance for the backboneless Colbert to take cheap shots.
