Colbert’s Unvarnished Truth

“After discussing the supremely unsettling footage of Rudy Giuliani in the new “Borat” movie, Stephen Colbert takes a moment to encourage Americans who might be considering keeping Donald Trump in office for four more years to remember the awful cruelties his administration has inflicted on families at the Southern border.”

If you’re ISO the embodiment of the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, CBS Late Show’s Stephen Colbert is your man.

Assuming I’ve encoded our featured video vignette correctly, it’ll start up at 7:47. Time permitting, rewind to check out the entire presentation, too. Yep, it’s that good!

Colbert’s commentary calls out Donald J. Trump’s bigoted, barbarous family separation policy along the U.S. / Mexican Border, which had been enforced, as early as 2017, by his merciless, overbearing Border Patrol agents. Their typical M.O. had been (likely still is) to [1] wrest crying babies and children from their asylum seeking parents’ cradling / clutching arms and [2] imprison these young innocents in cages.

As if such traumatization and dehumanization weren’t bad enough already, we now learn there still are 545 children, who’ve yet to be reunited with their families. And that, indeed, is in flat out defiance of a federal court judge’s order. Putting that into perspective, Colbert points out that 545 kids could fill 8 school buses. Echoing my righteous indignation, said he:

“Trump says and does a lot of dumb things, but we should never let his stupidity, overshadow the fact that he’s also a heartless monster, who must be driven from office and eventually dragged, in manacles, before The Hague.”

Most assuredly we must make an example of deplorable Donald and his wretched henchmen; hold them all fully accountable for their crimes against humanity.

Only then can we enjoy a renaissance; recommit to our core principles, re-shine our homeland’s tarnished image; relight America’s beacon.

How, ironic, indeed, that Donald J. Trump, et al, once behind bars, would experience far more humane treatment than the children they had caged.
