When the news broke on Tuesday evening that President Donald Trump had fired former FBI Director James Comey, many prominent Democrats and the liberal media, completely freaked out.
Trump-hating comedian Stephen Colbert opened up his late-night show by addressing the issue, and was in for a big shock when he did, the Washington Free Beacon reported.
When Colbert told his audience that news was spreading about Comey’s firing, the audience broke out in cheers. And the comedian was stunned.
“Huge story that broke just minutes ago, less than 10 minutes ago. FBI Director James Comey has just been fired by Donald Trump,” Colbert said to cheers and applause.
“Huge, huge Donald Trump fans here tonight,” he said after looking confused at the applause.
This little blunder exposes Democrat hypocrisy for all the world to see. The audience, which I would bet good money on was 99 percent Democrat, was perfectly happy to hear that Comey had been fired because they (along with most of America) had lost confidence in him.
However, as soon as Colbert mentioned that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had been the one to recommend Comey’s firing, the audience booed loudly, as if they had suddenly remembered they weren’t supposed to approve of anything Trump, or his administration, does.

For months, Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have been calling for Comey to resign or be fired, but once Trump actually fired him, they got offended and had to speak out against it.
For the past few days, liberals and the media have tossed around words like “coup” and “Constitutional crisis,” even though if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had fired Comey, they would be applauding the move.
Maybe next time Colbert will inform his audience ahead of time what he’s going to say so they don’t end up making him look like a giant fool.
He does that well enough on his own.
