Colbert Mocks Fox & Friends Job Opening: ‘The Most Influential Writer In The World’

On Friday night, Stephen Colbert had some fun with the job opening for “Head Writer” that’s actually available on Fox & Friends.

“Hold on, somebody writes Fox & Friends?” Colbert asked. “I thought they just got some monkeys drunk and gave them a ouija board.”

The Late Show host called the ‘Head Writer’ position at Fox & Friends a “really big job” since the show’s most loyal viewer is President Donald Trump.

“Keep in mind, and I’m not exaggerating, this is the show the president watches every morning to know what he thinks,” Colbert stressed. A much more honest ad would say, ‘Job Opening: The most influential writer in the world. Must be okay with having your casual thought instantly turned into global policy. Light Doocy wrangling.'”

He then read what was actually in the job posting, which was that applicants needed to have at least four years of national or local market experience, be willing to work overnight and weekends, which he joked was “more than the president,” and that you need to have a “passion” for accuracy.

“Accuracy should be more of a passion project, because your job will be lying,” Colbert quipped.
