    That was what a fascist rally looks like… Seriously. You can see the bloodthirst in their eyes almost. It’s like they are on meth.

    The production value of the DNC was such a snore. Biden and Harris, wtf? Joe should be out bird watching. And Harris, who accused Biden of being a racist and perv., and the DNC selects Harris, wtf? Do you guys want to lose? ….. maybe so???

    Reminder: Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African-American emergency medical technician, was fatally shot by Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) officers Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove on March 13, 2020.

    1. Your Registrar of Voters office should have early voting, beginning in early October.
    Please take advantage of this. Call your local Registrar’s office for their early voting dates and times.
    If this info is NOT posted on the website, in a prominent position, on their main page, call them immediately and ask this to be addressed. In CA, they’re hiding this information, which will ensure longggggg lines, longgggg waits, and a longgggger wait to find out which candidates won.

    2. You can trade in ("surrender") your mail-in ballot for a "Polling Place Ballot". This should reduce the amount of verifications that are needed, and help ensure your vote is counted by November 3.

    3. Expect the election results to take up to a month or possibly longer to determine. If 10-20% of voters voted by mail last year; 80-90% voted at the polling places. Now that number will be flipped. 80-90% of mail in ballots; 10-20% polling place ballots.

    Why does that matter? Each mail in ballot needs the signature verified; the status of the voter verified; and a person needs to make sure the voter only voted once. That takes time.

    It’s easier to determine a winner if 80-90% of the ballots were counted the night of the election.
    It will be impossible to determine a winner if only 20% to 50% of the ballots have been counted.

    In CA, they’ll have the polling places open 10/31 through 11/3. I have no idea what they’ll do with the ballots between those dates? Will they drop them off at the Registrar’s office each night? Who will drop them off? How do we know they’re not tampered with? That’ll increase the possibility of tampering with the votes for FOUR TIMES.

    So, PLEASE urge all of your friends and family to vote early, in person, at the Registrar’s office.
    Also, to volunteer at the polling places to ensure there’s no fraud taking place.
    To work part-time at the Registrar’s office, to help count the votes, and ensure there’s no fraud.
    To report it to the police, and the White House if they see a bunch of ballots sitting around their communities. Take photos, and video, and submit that info to the White House, the Police, and send a copy to their Secretary of State.

    your lefty late night smear campaign won’t work. the bacon hating lettuce Marxist cult will fade

  9. Leonard Mullin on September 2, 2020 at 1:53 pm

    Steve you are right if a political party does not put up a platform they are no longer a "party" but a person, a dictatorship and authoritarian rule.

  10. Alyn Sterner on September 2, 2020 at 1:53 pm

    That’s so awesome he says I love before the show

  11. Virginia Griffith on September 2, 2020 at 1:54 pm

  12. Leonard Mullin on September 2, 2020 at 1:54 pm

  13. pino de vogel on September 2, 2020 at 1:54 pm

    Haha outside your borders the entire world thinks the usa is a joke. I hope soon we start ignoring the us economy as a whole and stop adopting your sickening political bullcrap and ban lobbying usa style. Currently the world is better of without the usa.

  14. Chris Gascoigne on September 2, 2020 at 1:55 pm

    Well its difficult to write a platform when you don’t believe in anything other than yourself. Their platform, stay in power, and stuff everyone else.

  20. Kenny Lucas on September 2, 2020 at 2:00 pm

    I think everyone should have to vote in person so I don’t understand why people think it’s ok for mail in and Spanish flu they came and voted and way more deadly than what is happening now

  21. deborah sell on September 2, 2020 at 2:01 pm

    I knew they got thanos from tRump. He’s clearing out social security.

  22. Ben on September 2, 2020 at 2:01 pm

    Matt Gaetz and Jordan are two of the biggest creeps on TV. Let’s not forget they belong to the Party of Patahlogocal Serial Liars.

  23. M Reyes on September 2, 2020 at 2:02 pm

  24. Draum on September 2, 2020 at 2:04 pm

  25. SunQueen1388 on September 2, 2020 at 2:05 pm

    All the Republicans in the intro are supervillains except Mike Pence who is just himself, yet he stands on the same level in his own right

  26. TheWordsmythe on September 2, 2020 at 2:06 pm

    Nah, Junior just had botox too soon before the cameras.

  27. stephen wedderburn on September 2, 2020 at 2:08 pm

    "The best" "is yet" "to come" if that’s all the message they’ve got then America is screwed if they get back in power.

  28. Terrance Mulcare on September 2, 2020 at 2:08 pm

    I love Stephen’s Wife’s giggles.

  29. Felix Flax on September 2, 2020 at 2:09 pm

  32. Leonard Mullin on September 2, 2020 at 2:12 pm

    Guilfoyle is such a bad speaker, she’s loud and out of sync

  35. Krysta Stefanosky on September 2, 2020 at 2:21 pm

    I love the graphics team!!

  36. mudgeforce5 on September 2, 2020 at 2:21 pm

    Watching this, it’s hard to believe Colbert used to be funny.

  37. david williams on September 2, 2020 at 2:22 pm

    Hahaha hey don jr whose house is this house 👏👏👏👏🤣

  38. Machang D on September 2, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    How ironic, the man who claims to be a “law & order President” is the biggest crook in the country. Show your tax returns and your money laundering and all the mafia deals will be revealed. How many women has this man violated. He wants to win desperately so Bill Barr can save him. Trump is trying to save himself. If Trump loses this time he will get bankrupted, will have endless court cases. He will die a pauper & the whole family will lose everything they have. Trump has to do whatever he has to do, lie, steal hood wink the Evangelicals do whatever, get Russian help again, sabotage the postal services. He will promise anything to the
    Evangelicals to win although he has never ever gone to Church or believe in any religion. The Democrats are fools to play
    gentlemen and not point out all his past misdeeds.

  39. Daphne Vl on September 2, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    I want what Stephen is drinking.

  40. Carmen Driscoll on September 2, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    Steve is awesome

  41. David Whiteis on September 2, 2020 at 2:25 pm

    Yeah — Donald Trump is the kind of "caring, loving father" who told Howard Stern it was absolutely okay for him to call Ivanka a "real piece of ass," and then told another interviewer, "If Ivanak weren’t my daughter, I’d be dating her." (She was fourteen at the time.)

  42. Jan Shiff on September 2, 2020 at 2:25 pm

    Love your show 😃🙂😄❤️

  43. Joy W on September 2, 2020 at 2:28 pm

    Honestly the best part of his show is his wife giggling at his jokes and then his smile of delight when she giggles. It makes my heart happy! ❤️❤️

  44. Debra Smith on September 2, 2020 at 2:30 pm

    No, it is fair! Projection: 300,000 dead Americans by DECEMBER.

  45. Leah Taylor on September 2, 2020 at 2:32 pm

    That was definitely not what came out of those 4 horrible days!!

  46. Truth Seeker on September 2, 2020 at 2:33 pm
  47. Leonard Mullin on September 2, 2020 at 2:34 pm

    Utopia, like if it was a utopia I would like anywhere as long as it was a utopia, ya the guy that said socialist utpoia he doesn’t know what the word utopia means. Hey if it is Heaven on Earth why would that be a bad place to live?

  48. Aku SantaFe on September 2, 2020 at 2:36 pm

    Great commentary. Yes, you may ask yourself how did I get here!

  49. Trisha Searls on September 2, 2020 at 2:39 pm
