Tonight is the season premier of The Late Show with its new host Stephen Colbert, who is replacing David Letterman, who headed the show for 30 years.
There is a lot of hype surrounding this Colbert guy, who has some considerable credentials coming into this new gig. He hosted a political talk show for a number of years on cable television and dabbled in live theater in Chicago before that. He seems funny enough but we did a little digging and the public deserves to know just who Stephen Colbert is, and more importantly, was.
It looks like despite being good buddies with Jon Stewart, a member of the liberal elite, Colbert is wildly conservative. And he ‘s not one of those reasonable conservatives, he ‘s aggressively proud and has a whole in-your-face attitude about it all. It ‘s incredibly off-putting.
Just check out some of these tweets of his from a few years ago.
