Host of Sunday’s Emmys Stephen Colbert tells Trump fans not to bother watching
Will the Emmys be rolling out the red carpet for President Donald Trump?
The Emmys will be broadcast live Sunday from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and host Stephen Colbert promises Trump will get plenty of attention — see “attacks.”
CBS is hard at work plugging the show online:
The left-wing comedian has been quick to employ vulgarity to express his contempt for Trump, attacking the president earlier this year with a gay sex remark involving Russian President Vladimir Putin.
And while Colbert’s not likely to be that vile on live TV, those who choose to tune in Sunday can expect a healthy dose of anti-Trump rhetoric all night long.
“This is a night to celebrate television and there’s no bigger star on television in the last year than Donald Trump,” the late night host sniped, according to Inside Edition. “If the president has any subjects he would like for me to joke about in the monologue, please, we are ready to celebrate you, sir!”
It seems Hollywood never learns, even after the broadcast of the Academy Awards in February drew the smallest audience for the Oscars since 2008.
The only question at play here may be whether Colbert draws more viewers than he repels?
Here’s a sampling of responses from social media users who have grown real tired of politics being injected into the entertainment realm.
