Stephen Colbert has slammed Trump's "pardons," and they're not all the Thanksgiving kind. After lightly roasting the president's antics during the annual turkey pardon, The Late Show host turned his attention to the bigger "pardon" on everyone's minds. Colbert pointed out that the CIA is preparing a report that is expected to connect the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.  But the president jumped in first on Tuesday, issuing a White House statement "standing with Saudi Arabia." "Apparently you can kill a Washington Post journalist and the president don't give a damn," said Colbert on Tuesday night.

Instead of a comedian, the White House Correspondents' Association enlisted a historian to headline the event. From Chevy Chase to Wanda Sykes to Stephen Colbert, comedy has been a long-time tradition at the White House Correspondents Dinner. But on November 19, the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) announced that there would be no comedian at the 2019 White House Correspondents Dinner. Instead, the Association will be featuring historian Ron Chernow—and comedians are not happy about it.One of them is Michelle Wolf, who was featured at the 2018 White House Correspondents Dinner and had some laughs at the expense of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders—inspiring a lot of whiny faux-outrage from Trumpistas.Visiting Twitter on November 19, Wolf posted, “The @whca are cowards. The media is complicit. And I couldn’t be prouder.”“Daily Show” correspondent Roy Wood, Jr. was equally outspoken about the decision, telling The Daily Beast it was...

Sometimes, in an interview, it's the tough questions you want. Sometimes it's a bit of relaxed chit-chat. And other times you just want to paint the host's nails and talk about the upcoming Spice Girls reunion. In the nine-minute clip above, Stephen Colbert chats to Millie Bobby Brown about a whole range of topics — everything from Stranger Things Season 3 to her work with Unicef. The interview finishes how very good interview should — a manicure accompanied by some important discussion of which Spice Girl Colbert thinks he's most like (spoiler alert: it's Ginger).

TV has some weird rules about swearing, even for The Late Show host Stephen Colbert. After skewering Donald Trump's Fox News interview, in which the president blasted the man who oversaw the hunt for Osama Bin Laden as a "Hillary Clinton fan," Colbert turned his attention to a curious spelling error from the president. In a separate moment, Trump tweeted his displeasure toward Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff, to which he referred to as "Adam Schitt" in the tweet. This outburst allowed Colbert a rare opportunity to swear on live television, kinda, but only when the president's tweet appears on screen (skip to 7:40).

While the much-loved Adventure Time might be long gone, Stephen Colbert has a worthy alternative: Policy Time. The Late Show's spoof comes following reports that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has instituted "policy time" in a bid to get Trump to focus on policy matters. It's on top of the president's much-talked about "executive time," in which he spends time tweeting and watching TV, which is referenced in the parody's theme song. Oh, and Kelly is the dog for some reason. Read more... More about Entertainment, Tv, Stephen Colbert, Trump, and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

On Monday night, the news broke that Stan Lee, a Marvel Comics legend, had passed away at the age of 95. Later on that evening, Wolverine star Hugh Jackman appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and paid a tribute to the man who helped create X-Men. "Let me just say to the family and to the legions of fans, that I remember Stan as a true gentleman who had this glint in his eye," says Jackman. "He's a creative genius, he thought outside the box — he created a whole universe that changed the lives of many people, mine included." Jackman goes on to remember an anecdote from Comic Con, where he was on the red carpet as Wolverine — and nobody was taking his photo, because Stan Lee was at the other end.

Acosta's press pass was revoked, with Huckabee Sanders accusing the reporter of "placing his hands" on a White House intern during Trump's press conference.

It wouldn't be election season without a visit from one of the hardest working campaign trail reporters around: Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. With Conan O'Brien on a break this week, Triumph picked up his mic and hit the road to Texas for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where Triumph finally got to meet his great white whale, incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz, face-to-face.  And it was worth the wait as Triumph takes Cruz's awkward attempt at humor and turns it around into the mother of all zingers. While fans of Cruz opponent Rep. Beto O'Rourke weren't immune to Triumph's fire, it's hard not to ignore that even Triumph seems to have fallen for O'Rourke. He told the candidate, "I love the way you are anybody but Ted Cruz."

Of particular annoyance to the late show host was Trump continuing with a rally hours after the attack, where he claimed that he did so because the New York Stock Exchange opened the day after 9/11That claim was in fact, false.
