Franco in the hot seat
After winning named Best Actor at the Golden Globes on Sunday, James Franco was criticized for supporting the Time’s Up movement and then accused of sexual misconduct by several women on social media. During an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show this past Tuesday, the late-show host addressed the elephant in the room, while Franco denied that he had acted inappropriately with the women who had come forward with allegations, including Ally Sheedy. “The way I live my life, I can’t live if there’s restitution to be made. I will make it,” Franco said. “So, if I’ve done something wrong, I will fix it. I have to. I mean, I think that’s how that works. I don’t know what else to do. As far as the bigger issues, you know, how we do it. I really don’t have the answers and I think the point of this whole thing is that we listen.” Franco jumped from the frying pan and into the fire when he appeared the next night on Seth Meyers’ show.
Seth has to walk away
Donald Trump crossed a line on Late Night this week, which forced Seth Meyers to get up and walk away from his desk. During a discussion with lawmakers regarding immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, the POTUS asked, “Why are we having all these people from s–hole countries come here?” The controversial comments caused Meyers to kickstart an entirely new segment called “Seth Has to Walk Away For a Minute” in order to grasp Trump’s offensive inquiry.
According to the Washington Post, Donald Trump reached a major milestone this week when he told his 2000th lie. To commemorate what he referred to as “Lie-2-K,” Jimmy Kimmel released a documentary detailing the record-breaking fib that took place during a conversation about immigration. Trump reportedly stretched the truth when stating that the infamous wall could be built in a year while exaggerating the effects it would have on drug smuggling. “I would say without a doubt it was the greatest achievement in the history of lying,” Jakob Milden, Professor of Epistemology at Brown University said in the documentary titled, Pants of Fire.
Colbert imagines Oprah as president
Following Oprah’s moving speech at Sunday’s Golden Globes, the hashtag #Oprah2020 began trending, with many fans wishing the media mogul would run for president. Like many of the late-night hosts, Stephen Colbert reflected on Oprah’s words, how they impacted viewers and how they could possibly lead to a career in politics. “People were immediately calling that speech presidential. And a year ago, I would have agreed,” Colbert said. “These days it played a little coherent.”
