    I would not trust Bret Baier to say anything - that will damage the Dirty Lyin' Dems, so I assume he is being entrusted to be so called 'negative' in order to muddy up O'Biden in order to get him out of office in the medium to longer term. Making way for a new news Story before 2024 to enable the Dirty Lyin' Dems to survive again. BUT WE WILL NOT ALLOW IT.

    How quickly people forget the detestable way he treated Obama when Barack made the mistake of agreeing to a Fox interview. I can't believe Steve would have him on.

      We here in Germany don't get this news personality concept coz we lack emotion for it in the first place. Someone who doesn't respect the journalistic code is per sé not to be taken seriously. Watch a wall instead or do something else more productive.👍🏿

      CNN is slightly more biased but Fox news is not really a news station with too much blatant misinformation, which per sé kicks you out of the "We are trustworthy and sane" -game. There were two legal cases that reaffirmed this. "Tucker Defense" or "not to be held responsible because of Foxitis"... You can do the research but you'll never find something similar said by courts about CNN and Co. Btw your thought is just a waste of valuable energy coz Fox, CNN & MSNBC are just 3 pieces of an entirely fkd up corporate US news landscape.

    Colbert is like another HBO polotitcal pundit we all know....very smart, funny, hard working, great on his feet and desively biased to the left. That's fin hut please admit it!!! they are pundits. I really like Brett and Chris as they are currently the closest we independents get to journalists who dont consistently suck up to one side. Rachel madcow and hollaring hannity sure as hell dont! And i am including PBS in that lot. Anyway thanks for allowing me to offer my humble opinion. I appreciate respectful debates. The 24 hour news stations sell commercials to make money not solid journalism. Not kuch better than National Enquirer. And Comedy Central has gone that same route as well. Great short turn business model but will it be sustainable? I guess howard stern knows more about that lol.

    Mitch has outlived his benefit to continuing to hold office. He's too old - too wealthy - too entitled - too out of touch - too connected to Evangelical Christians to separate himself from the centuries old opinions collected in the black book (Bible) which hasn't served most humans well.

    Every time we hear the word "debt" it should be pointed out that the debt wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the Reagan Bush tax cuts for the rich, the people with the money that can afford to be taxed, and before anyone says "but the rich are the ones that give people jobs" The rich don't pay taxes on money that they spend on employment.

    They have to negotiate but can't because both sides have gerrymandered their districts so badly that the only challenge they ever have is a primary from their own party so holding the party line and or going further to the extreme is their only option if they intend to stay in office.

    I don’t feel like there’s much of this from the right, but I appreciate that Colbert has civil republicans on. I may disagree with them on *everything* but I think it’s important to humanize those who disagree with us… I know that all too well as a blue dot, it sucks when people treat you like dirt with the broad brush they paint. Not saying we should give the alt right any footing, quite the opposite. Civil republicans challenge it, at least a little bit, and every bit counts.

      @David Evans you folks are always the same, when you are beaten down enough to face your own lies, you change the subject. I'm not here to defend anyone, Trump was a disaster in every way as a president, because he was so ignorant and so lazy. 8 hours of t.v. per day, didn't even read the daily intelligence reports. His foreign policy didn't exist, less than 40% of high level diplomatic posts were even filled. We had no real ambassador to South Korea during Trump's whole term. Trump was a lap dog to Putin and the whole world saw it in Helsinki where Trump said that he had no reason to doubt Putin when Putin told him Russia didn't interfere in our elections ,contradicting our own intelligence agencies. Let's not forget Trump going all the way to North Korea to give oral pleasure to NK Kim and got nothing but the finger for doing it. A complete embarrassment and Trump made the U.S look. so weak. Trump turned away from our oldest and most loyal allies in the middle east, the Kurds, and left them vulnerable to major attack by the Turks which is exactly what happened. Now those Kurds have been forced to ally with Iran for their safety because the U.S. no longer protected them. Russia now has a massive naval fleet stationed on the coast of Syria! Trump completely ignored the climate crisis as if it didn't exist. Walked away from hard won world agreements to at least begin to face the climate crisis. Four years lost and so much damage done to our relationships with our allies. Because Trump had no interest in the outside world, his only interest was seeing himself on t.v. at night. Nothing he said came true... the wall is 1/10th done and crumbling a little more each day. China is stronger than ever and made huge inroads into Africa during Trump years that he didn't even bother to counter. Trump didn't fix immigration ,he took any foreign person at the border and pushed them back into Mexico to be hopefully forgotten. That is not America! Beyond, the endless lying, the contempt he showed to our democratic institutions, the courts, the long held tradition of presidents not interfering in the DOJ, the placing lackeys in high positions who are only loyal to him and 'f' the constitution. All culminating in the Jan. 6th violent coup attempt that nearly succeeded. But he wasn't done yet. During those days in early January after he was defeated, he tried to force DOJ lawyers to send a letter to Georgia state election officials claiming they had evidence, which they did not, that the Georgia vote count was irregular and couldn't be accepted. Thankfully, DOJ lawyers refused, but a president demanding government lawyers forge a letter of lies to a state to overturn an election, THAT is a felony. No, you have nothing to offer on the legacy of Trump. It is lies, con jobs, endless humiliation, ignorance on a world stage, and finally a violent attempt to steal back an election he clearly lost.
