I love @StephenAtHome. He has a big beautiful heart and he cares about this country.
I understand why he was wearing black and why he couldn’t sit at first. This mess keeps you in mourning and on your feet.
I pray we prevail. This darkness has GOT to end. https://t.co/GSagg8mljx

Apparently, we aren’t all Stephen Colbert. There were a few dissenters:
Time to process his feelings about that night in 2016 when he got in bed with Hillary and betrayed the American Revolution spearheaded by Bernie’s movement. That’s what brought us to this moment.

“Liberal tears” continue. These people have discredited themselves forever and it has been entirely worthwhile.

Colbert’s funny but he’s watched way too much Sorkin.
