  1. I love Bernie Sanders, he is an amazing Senator and his ideals are awesome and I am so glad for his success. However we need a younger president and it is time for change. Vote Pete Butigeg!!

  2. Forget fox. Ask CNN why they are so hell bent upon asking only smear questions. Fox treated Bernie way better than CNN.

  3. BERNIE SANDERS keeps his promises to release his taxes….he delivers….
    Trump……**crickets chriping**

  4. At what point do the Dems stop letting them delay these docs being sent over with no explanation and say "not sending them over is obstructing this investigation" you know that whole obstruction of justice thing that is so popular?

  5. (Sorry about my English) as a jew Israeli i wish the old pig is going to die soon.we in Israel hate the people from the radical left, specialy the jews among hem.we hate the Thomas Friedmans more than u people can emagin. God bless the republicans and spesialy the Avangalists among them.GOD, bless your president mister trump,and GOD, BLESS The U.S.A

  7. Bernie does more to challenge Trump in one sentence than Colbert has done in two years harping on Russiagate. His corporate centrism is about as relevant in 2019 as the cocktail lounge piano twinkle he uses to let his audience know when to applaud.

  8. The point of socialism isn't to deprive everyone of wealth, but to provide it to everyone. Bernie didn't accumulate that money by evading taxes, or doing corporate deals, or fracking or mining or destroying the environment, or ruining anyone's life. That money is useful, he needs it to fight the very corporate evil that thrives on donations, which, frankly, at this point are indistinguishable from bribes. You're very funny, Stephen, but sometimes you miss the point.

  9. Should have shown more clips from the town hall instead of making fun of Bernie and downplaying his victory, not to mention concluding that the reason for his success at Fox was that… they like old people? Sheesh. I'm pretty sure his next Pete Buttigieg clip will be all praise with well timed pauses for applause.

  10. Hey rich guy who likes to think he's moral because he says bad things are bad: your bias is showing when you talk about Sanders.

  11. I hope Bernie wins the nomination. The Democrats need to stop pushing white bread, robotic, and awkward candidates who take minority votes for granted. Bernie worked for his support, and his voting record shows it. He has charisma, he actually shows his emotions and commitment to his beliefs. I would love to see him face Trump as opposed to whatever Hillary 2.0 the party supports.

  12. Get out and vote in 2020. It’s either Bernie or Biden. Both can beat trump. But we have to get out and vote.

  13. And yet he voted against Trump's tax reforms. Once again the mainstream media is going to push for the establishment candidate (Biden) but the comments here basically say it all as far as what the people think.

  14. As a Democratic conservative, it's not about what party you're on. It's about whether you have a no-nonsense approach to politics and if you're a good person. John Kasich, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders are all good people. As long as you are genuine you can cross party lines. The younger generation is more fluid in their thinking.

  15. Good Job Steven! Invite the Vanderbilt family scion Anderson Copper one more time and show him your love. The Colbert Report version of you would have shred you to pieces for this sloppy wet job!

  16. have you noticed how often money and politics seem closely connected, even in mundane conversations? "plutocracy" is the label for a society in which the rich rule, and in a plutocracy, money is the measure of power. so when a person announces he is a candidate, he will mention some plans or policies he wants to see enacted, but commentary will not be about that, but about how much money he has or has gotten in support. "biden announces, has 65 million in one day!"

  17. I love it. No funny at all. The left is finally eating their own. I wonder who Colbert is going to shill for in the next Election.

    And that zinger. When he is talking about how only old people watch fox news. The projection! You have to be lobotomized to think enjoy this.

  18. Really? Bernie is a defrost communist. Honeymoon in Russia when camps in Siberia were full of political prisoners.
    I am from a socialist country with no quality health care. You introduce socialism to Sahara and after a week you run out of sand.

  19. sayes a millionaire that makes his money mucking up reality even more and playing imperial gate keeper.

  20. Those crypted, formualised, lame anti-Bernie jokes do not work, are not funny and do not distract from his strong policies, not even in the fox news hall.

  21. You were funnier when you were an actor of the people. Absurdity was your fortè
    Mr. Noblet. I bet young Colbert would have felt the Bern!

  22. THIS is why it's obvious the Democrats own most other networks. They hate Bernie because he would put a stop to their status quo, so they get a lackey comedien of theirs to make the dumbest points in this jokes as a takedown. They did this with Jill stein last time when all they could say bad about her was that she was in a feminist band, played a song of hers, and enticed the audience to laugh at it. THIS is just one example why I was a part of #DEMEXIT. The only Dem I will ever vote for is Bernie, and if he doesn't get the nomination I will never be back!

  23. Doesn't Stephen make something close to 15 million a year? Take the money argument and shove it up your ass you centrist clown.

  24. Colbert, Bernie is rolling… you (and many others) predicted trump would lose. Feel the Bern! Get on board man

  25. Someone please tell Colbert he’s lost popularity with his Bernie bashing. He doesn’t seem to understand. It’s not even funny. #StillSanders

  26. The whole being rude about somebodies age is so wrong and I cringe at these comments. We we all hope to get to a good age and be healthy and contributing to society. This aspiration should ALWAYS be respected and celebrated. Stephen – not your finest moment.

  27. Dude, Jimmy Dore is more relevant and humerous than you and he makes a fraction of your income.

  28. Click bait! Title should have said Bernie is a rich hypocrite. But then no one would have watched that. Stephen and his employers need make sure Bernie isn't elected.

  29. ok, i get it now. at first, i thought ppl were overreacting to colbert's recent speeches about bernie because they weren't catching on that they're meant to be tongue-in-cheek underhanded compliments and not disses. but now i realize that this "joke-y" attitude is disrespectful within the context of how awesomely amazing sander's town hall performance was within the very serious context of our current dire political climate. I mean, at the end of they day this is supposed to be an entertainment venue and they gotta spin things to make them funny even if they're serious; this may not be a good job of doing that but it is a good reminder that this is a circus and not real or serious news anyhow.

  30. Stephen, don't invite BERNIE when he becomes the next US president. obvious your not a progressive to know what it means.

  31. Stephens only talking down Bernie cause he’s not as easy to make fun of, and his Bernie impression isn’t as good as trump’s

  32. I’m worried about you Colbert! Bernie is a great man regardless of his age! Please don’t fold your morals for money.

  33. After seeing the various Bernie bashing I’m done with Colbert. It’s pretty clear the corporate interests own Stephen now. What a crappy ending.

  34. I miss the Colbert Report. It’s really a loss to our political discourse. This show is political milquetoast. I stopped watching. I miss Jon Stewart too. At least he didn’t sell out.

  35. Unlike the right-wing NUTS who comment on yahoo news about how anti-Trump yahoo is, the VAST MAJORITY of commenters in youtube vids SUPPORT Bernie and his policies, and that includes corporate, establishment media channels like this one, and REAL left, progressive podcast channels like the Jimmy Dore Show, the Humanist Report, Secular Talk, Rational National, Status Coup, etc. 😀 EVERY TIME I watch a yt vid on Bernie (Fox News included!) ppl show overwhelming support, and it's refreshing that Bernie's policies are reaching ppl. Alternative news via the internet is WONDERFUL and is not just the wave of the future for collecting information, but it is already here and gaining ground!

  36. Those subtle jokes at the end shows who pays colberts salary and writes his monologue… CBS owned by Viacom, a company Bernie always reference as to big to fail because of its political influence via campaign contributions to your local government official #bribery

  37. Stephen…after laughing at many of your Trump-hating videos, I was shocked to watch this video attacking him. I don't know if I'll be watching your channel any more, b/c you're obviously owned by the DNC. Sad, man. You're obviously a much richer man than Bernie…and it shows.

  38. Colbert the top 1% aren’t millionaires!!! A couple mil ain’t much to today’s 1% this is corporate bullshit to smear him.

  39. Stephen Colbert are all baby killers after birth wannabes and they all look so proud of it. President Trump let ALL THE DEMONIC DEMONRATS PARTY HAVE IT IN SPADES. They all deserve it for THEY ARE ALL KILLER BABIES AFTER BIRTH WANNABES THAT THEY ALL VOTED FOR CNN #1 LYING NEWS IN AMERICA #2 MSNBC President Trump you've been taking peoples B.S for far to long now it's time to give them all back what they deserve. Trump 2020 trump &Jr 2024 for the big win.

  40. 2015-16 presidential campaign
    TRUMP: Drain the Swamp! End the wars! Take down Obamacare! End the 2015 Iran Deal!

    (gets elected…)

    Also TRUMP: Appoints former CEOs, lobbyists, bankers from Wall Street and other special interest groups to the US gov! Continues the wars! Tries to take down Obamacare! Withdraws the US from Iran Deal and starts to threaten Iran!

    2019-20 presidential campaign
    BERNIE: Let's give the power back to the people, end lobbying and special interests in government! Let's fight Climate Change! Let's implement a $15 minimum wage! Medicare for all citizens as a universal right! Let's end the wars and use diplomacy, multilateral institutions like the UN!

    Already BERNIE: Pressured Walmart, Amazon and Disney to raise minimum wage to $15 for all employees! Takes a bus of people to Canada to buy insulin for cheap (they have universal healthcare)! Co-sponsors a bill to end US support of Saudi Arabia in Yemen War (Trump vetoed)! Speaks out against a war in Iran (doesn't want a repeat of the 2003 Iraq War x10)!

    Imagine what Bernie will do as president! First he needs to win the Democrats' primaries, then beat Trump.

  41. Tired of the bernie is old jokes. Stephen colbert has been exposing himself as a corporate shill little by little

  42. New data estimates about 2 trillion galaxies in the universe, with all the trillions of life forms out there i wonder if any of them tune in to this pin head.

  43. You shouldn't have to transition to government healthcare if you get healthcare from your work.
    The govt. healthcare should just be for those that can't afford healthcare due to disability or unemployment.

  44. I thought Stephen’s impression of Bernie was pretty funny three years ago; it progressively became duller and duller, and now I just feel like: “come on, this again?”

  45. Whether you agree with his policies or not, at least Fox News is willing give him a platform for discussion. Cowards in the mainstream media are lying by omission and portraying people with dishonesty. It is a failing strategy that lost the election in 2016, and will again in 2020.

  46. This is very disappointing from Colbert. Apparently he has jumped on the corporate bandwagon of Bernie Bashing and totally glosses over the fact that Sanders owned that town hall like nobody's business.

  47. the old man jokes are getting old Stephen, Bernie is as old as Paul Mcartney and both of them could kick your ass in a softball game.
