    I think we have to face simple facts:
    Common Sense clearly dictates that if Stephen’s so-called monks of the quivering home did exist,if CEESO calls months of this was written form did in fact exist… They would be unlikely to ever leave the house, barring crises of Internet access or lubricant...

    Stephen remembers the full names of his childhood bus rider friends from almost 50 years ago like it's nothing, meanwhile I can hardly remember the faces of people from high school from a decade ago. His memory is uncanny.

    Did anyone else think this was a Dungeons and Dragons reference? No? Just me?
    EDIT: Okay, this is actually a Dungeons and Dragons thing. In DnD, Monks have an ability literally called Quivering Palm. You use Quivering Palm to start lethal vibrations in a person's body, and whenever you want, you can stop the vibrations, killing the person immediately. I kid you not, this is a thing. Look up "dungeons and dragons 5th edtion monk quivering palm"

    Dear Mr Colbert...happy new year. I'm hoping you'll take a better approach to your comedy in 2019. You've spent the last two years hurting the country with divisive, politically one-sided propaganda. All cleverly disguised as "satire".
    In 2019, I hope you show some semblance of personal integrity, stop the lies-by-omission, and have an America-first approach to your comedy.
    And I'll even offer you and your writers a few great topics for 2019 monologues/jokes:
    1. Elizabeth Warren wanting to run for President? Aside from the many possible jokes on her Native American scam, she's a walking funny-quote machine.
    2. Stormy Daniels.? You managed to leave all references to Bill Clinton out of your jokes last year. It's comedy gold to use his impeachment in comparison to Trump's lies.
    3. Speaking of lies..maybe you should use 2019 to remind Americans (using "satire" of course) that Obama's lies on the Affordable Care Act were Politifact's "Lie of the Year" for 2013? And maybe joke about how the Supreme Court recently determined the ACA is unconstitutional? Thus removing the only remaining tangible legacy from 8 years of his globalist leadership? (come, on there's some humor in there, I know it)
    4. Border security? Maybe you could joke how both Obama and Hillary wanted a permanent barrier with Mexico and knew illegal immigration is a massive issue?
    5. Maybe joke about how Trump's tax reforms and foreign policy moves will be among his best legacies from his first term and compare them to the disasters left by the Obama era?
    etc, etc
    I hope you get the point. Please consider 2019 as an opportunity for you to help the country with balanced satire...rather than hurt it with divisive lies-by-omission and propaganda.
