    "What friendship have you had that has impacted you the most" might be a good first date question but I suspect "my wife" is a _terrible_ first date answer.

    MSM missed the show as they suffer from Unintentional Mass Delusion.
    As an example is MSM tries to dictate to the public through technical
    propaganda by "Word Repetition" - Manufactured Crisis at
    the border, Women and Children in Cages, ICE are thugs, He has his
    finger on the Nuclear Button, He Does Not have Confidence in his
    INTEL, Biggest Liar, Sexist...................When you have two
    extreme views in the MSM, it means that the messages they are sending
    out can not be trusted; when the messages are relatively the same,
    the MSM can be trusted. The MSM fails to learn that Trump is a

    I know a couple who died like that. They weren’t even that old. Wife died and husband followed 1 mo later. The family were expecting the wife to go for years, but the husband dying was unexpected.

    The other day, i watched his audition tape for dana carvey show. Shortly after he started talking he cried holding his baby in a diaper that was too old, too smelly yet he couldn't afford to buy new one for his own child.
    Since then every time i see Stephen mention his wife it reminds me of the video. From that point for me Stephen is a kind of guy who remembers his hard time and really really appreciates what he had even back then and his wife definitely was there for him. And he is still very grateful for that, i believe.

    My grandpa died because of that reason. Grandma died 2y before him and all he ever talked is how he wants to go after her. I remember his face, he was smiling. That was the only funeral I didn't feel sad at.

  • ET Silverman
    ET Silverman 21 day ago

    [8:33] (and onwards) Did anyone else almost get the feeling like possibly Colbert's wife HATES him?
    ...It reminds me of the kind of movie where a crooked politician is showcasing his "perfect" family for a TV commercial and the minute the cameras stop rolling the whole pretense goes out the window.
    Colbert's nobody's movie villain, but he is giving the kind of polished performance of spousal devotion that feels a bit too close to that plotline. If I'm wrong, then I sincerely apologize - and if not, I see the fault as lying equally much with agents and studios who insist that all elements of a celeb's actual real human life can be co-opted. I'm a big Colbert fan, and I'm also fine (really! I swear) with not feeling like I'm a family member or close personal confidante.
    PS I realized the "flipped" interviews are probably fully scripted - conventional guests, I think, are escorted through the interview primarily on the strength of the host's on-stage persona. But Colbert and Oliver are pros - excellent ones - and longtime collaborators. When you have two people who can really make a script sing, I know I want material for them to work their magic on.
