Stephen Colbert Proposes Amish Version of Facebook to Remedy Privacy Concerns

  • Calling the former president a

"He does and she seems happier with him", Colbert said.

The photo came from the Wednesday skit of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where Carvey played John Bolton, the newly minted national security adviser. At one point, he revealed that he actually had a conversation with Trump on the day he was sacked, though the president made no mention of his decision to him.

In the wake of Facebook coming under fire after it was revealed Cambridge Analytica was able to obtain private data from over 50 million Facebook users, The Late Show's Stephen Colbert is ready to rectify the situation. "This may be the best news I've heard all day". Colbert was confused by Trump declaring, "And it was about us".

It's unclear if the network ran the story under the headline Colbert claimed.




"The reason why Trump crowed about the ratings is because on the show the character Roseanne agrees with Donald Trump, and a lot of people have called that refreshing", Colbert says of the show's political approach.

There is at least one public servant in Alabama who "has found his job very enriching", Trevor Noah said on Wednesday's Daily Show, referring to Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin, who apparently pocketed $750,000 from funds earmarked to feed prisoners and bought a beach house with the money.

CNN issued a correction on their website Friday. However, knowing the host who is full of antics, Colbert thanked MSNBC and not CNN, queueing laughter from the crowd.

While Colbert insinuated he wanted to draw more conservative viewers (like those who watch "Roseanne"), he still continued to take jabs at the president.
