Colbert: ‘Donald Trump Has Done a Lot for Me in the First 100 Days’ (Video)

Stephen Colbert is finally admitting that President Trump is good for business — if your business is a politics-heavy late-night comedy show that relies on selling advertising time to media buyers at a price based solely on TV tune-in. The “Late Show” host wondered aloud Monday if a recent Potus tweet citing his positive impact on “S.C.” might stand for “Stephen Colbert.” It definitely did not — but it could, considering the “Daily Show” alum has leapfrogged Jimmy Fallon in average nightly total viewers. “I gotta say: Donald Trump has done a lot for me in the first hundred days,” the. »

‘Anastasia’ Broadway Review: A Muddled, Pro-Czarist Russia Musical for the Trump Era

14 hours ago

John F. Kennedy had “Camelot.” Barack H. Obama had “Hamilton.” Only 100 days into his presidency, Donald J. Trump already has his own Broadway musical. “Anastasia” opened Monday at the Broadhurst Theatre, and it’s a show that pays homage to the kleptocracy that was the Romanovs of Russia.  How could our president not be thrilled? Early in the show, a Jared Kushner lookalike sings of the glories of his pre-Communist nation in the song “My Petersburg,” even though the place has been renamed Leningrad. Later, the Ivanka Trump-like heroine shows her royal privilege by insisting that a fellow traveler ask. »
