Stephen Colbert Tackles Hillary Emails, Anthony Weiner — Watch Video

Sometimes, important news breaks, and you have to jump on it immediately… especially when it involves the word “Weiner.”

The Late Show host Stephen Colbert took to YouTube on Friday to address the bombshell news that the FBI is investigating newly discovered emails related to presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. As Colbert notes in the video above, he had already taped Friday’s monologue the day before — “and since then, kind of a neat story has come out.”

Colbert says the new emails are related to Clinton’s infamous private server, “which, at this point, has ironically become the world’s most public server.” He then adds that the FBI discovered the emails while investigating disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner, and gleefully displays the New York Times headline: “New Clinton Case Emails Tied to Weiner.” (Man, that name is the comedy gift that keeps on giving, isn’t it?)

Colbert notes the irony of Weiner’s X-rated texts derailing her presidential bid just as she’s accusing Trump of sexual misconduct: “Truly, for the Clinton campaign, horny men giveth, and horny men taketh away.” He also marvels at this latest stumble from Hillary: “What cursed monkey’s paw did you wish upon to become president? Just stop touching it! That goes for you, too, Anthony Weiner! Give it a rest!”

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35/10:35c on CBS.

    This election is truly depressing…Trump & Clinton need to thank their political gods because these 2 candidates are running against the only other person they could possibly ever beat.
    If the tickets had been TrumpvSanders or PencevClinton, then Trump or Clinton would have no chance in H of ever seeing the W.H…but right now it’s anyone’s game, just depends on who has the most damaging leak 24hrs before election ends.

      Dunno about Pence… While he’s definitely got a better temperment and is more in line with what you’d expect from a Republican nominee, no question, Clinton’s pretty good at exposing her opponent’s vulnerabilities and the best way to counter that is be more relatable. Granted Pence was at his weakest defending Trump, so while his approval rating isn’t great (not the lowest but I believe he’s in the lower 20 of governors?) that could, in theory, be enough to at least make it a tighter race in some areas.

      Would have loved to see Sanders and Trump debate, be interesting to see how Sanders responded to the ‘wrong’ statements and such.

      I think it is bloody hilarious and CNN is all confused and constantly arguing with each other about this………….God I love being Canadian!!! And God have mercy on America!

        You wont think it’s so damn funny if Clinton’s elected and gets that war with Russia that she wants. Last time we were lied to it was Iraq. They didn’t have nukes. Fallout will taint your maple syrup for centuries to come if that dunderheads pokes that bear too hard.

          OMG seriously. So I guess you are like Trump and wants to be best friend with him. You really need to do some research and not listen to Trump’s BS. I guarantee that if Trump is elected we will see war before the year is out.

    Why did Steven give a 3 figure illuminati sign??????????? Oh my is he with them!!!

    The emails re: Anthony Weiner did not come from Hillary Clinton, it came from Weiner and his wife!

    • sunshine says:

      The emails they found were between his wife and Hillary but they were on his laptop. That is why it is news, because they are Hillary’s emails.

    It looks like Hillary just got screwed by Anthony Weiner’s wiener.

    So basically Colbert just brought up Trump’s sexual misconduct issues while completely ignoring Bill Clinton’s forcible rape of Juanita Brodderick and his myriad other crimes and victims and makes no mentions of Hillary’s bullying of those victims to silence them and protect the Clinton family image and then he tells a sexual predator who was sending dick picks to a 15 year old to quote “give it a rest”. OK, Colbert. We get it. you can do whatever you want so long as you have a D to the right of your name. And attributing Hillary’s legal troubles to a voodo cursed monkey paw? Yes it certainly is sorcery that is involved with her bad luck because assuredly she’s done nothing wrong. It isn’t a monkey paw that’s her problem it’s the fact that she is the most corrupt sociopath in American politics and boy is that saying something. Colbert, you are a man of poor character, nothing but a company schill waving your pretty blue pom poms. Johnson/Weld 2016.

      BILL is not running for the 1000 times. I do find it ironic how the Women who decides to stand by her husband is attacked. Do you feel the same way about Trump’s wife. Bill has paid for his crimes. You are free to vote for Johnson but just remember one that he doesn’t stand a chance and you talk about clueless he is less inform on foreign policies than Trump and that is saying a lot. Agree or not we don’t need a stoner as President of the US.
