Max Maker : Stephen is such a fantastic guy! Professional, moral and funny.

Psychologie-lernen .de : this guy is so important for democracy :)

Matt Clark : The way he talks about Trump's election night is so gratifying. This whole country....the smart half were in despair that night, and the morons were celebrating. I really respect Stephen's intelligence and good heart. You can tell he genuinely, genuinely cares about women and people of color and just people in general regardless of labels. He's a major intellect on the intersection of politics and culture that helps give our society insight and peace.

Eliza Grogan : Stephen is such an intelligent, perceptive man. I live in Europe but was able to watch the live show which ended with the knowledge tgat Trump was the new President. I cried. A collective gloom settled over Europe. We couldn't accept what happened. We loved and admired President Obama. He had visited on a number of occasions and was received with joy. He was so knowledgeable on every Country he visited. He was humble. He respected us. We knew we had a great friend in the White House. Trump wasn't an intellectual. He had been lampooned because of his constant ignorance of world affairs during his campaign. Time has proven that we were right. I await the day when the gloom lifts and DJT is no longer in power. Hopefully, that will be soon. Thankyou Stephen for bringing laughter & insight into the Trump car crash Presidency.

Xan-Rhea Bilal : The nicki Minaj bit two days ago was hilarious 😂

avedic : Stephen can be goofy and silly on the show....but especially in a context like this interview, you really get a sense for just how ferociously intelligent and serious he is as a human being. He's done his homework on a _lot_ of subjects. There's something a wee bit intimidating about his intellect....and I love it. I adore people who are in the top 1% in terms of intelligence....and I think it's clear Stephen is in that echelon. Much respect...

g'mornin jooolee-uh : So nice to hear a decent human being speaking frankly

WR Kang : Colbert reads more every morning than Donald ever has/ever will.

mar10dg : Having Stephen Colbert succeed David Letterman was a brilliant decision.

CartoonrBOY : What a beautiful mind. Thanks Steve. You are loved here in the UK.😍

Tyler Durden : Great interview, but just terrible interviewer. Specially in contrast when sitting next to the best interviewer ever.

Experience True Self : What a lovely man. so much respect for Stephen Colbert. He's so authentic, honest and smart.

TilleyTilley : In the TV president era, Stephan Colbert is our moral and emotional president.

Jason Allen : He is seriously the main person who is helping me cope through these Extraordinary Scary Time's

Paula Brown : Stephan Colbert you are so appreciated! People need to laugh so much right now!! Thank you so much for being a much needed salve fo America! You are a genius! 🙏💜!

Dennis Caxton : I simply would not have coped with Trump becoming president (still cannot believe it) without Stephen - and I live in the UK!!! Bravo Stephen, you are MY hero!!! x

MizzMakk m : He reads more in 1 hour than trump has his whole life.

James Smithe : Jesus, Stephen works harder in one day than Trump has since he's been in office.

Andrea : Stephen has to be one of the most brilliant people in the world. I am stunned at how quickly he thinks and responds to questions. He uses his brain on his feet with his heart. I also think he is the best political commentator we have. I love hearing him sing and watching him dance too.

PhantomKaratOfficial : I went to the taping of one of his shows - genuinely one of the best things I’ve ever been to! He’s such a down to earth guy who makes sure those in the audience are having a good time. Would definitely recommend getting tickets if you can!

New Message : "Today I had a phonecall with my wife..." Telling her to brace for the Nicki Menage bit where she makes him blush like a schoolgirl.

Inspodreams : He is so smitten with his wife, so cute ❤️

ALizardLoves You : This was really interesting to watch/listen to. Thank you for the fearless authenticity :)

vonvaqed : We are so lucky to have Stephen Colbert as a late night comedy host. His intelligence, his charm and his wit makes it possible to go through these weird and depressing times. Thank you Stephen Colbert...we are grateful to you and all your team. Fantastic Job!

Neil Boughton : I appreciate his honesty and some great insights.

yashiWinchester : Stephen is both a brilliant interviewee and an interviewer. Such well thought out as well as thought provoking answers.

Brent Uptain : such a brilliant and sensitive mind. yes, he does influence how people see the world. in such trying times, he's about the only way i can take my news....

Angela Siegfried : "You can't lie to the audience for any reason." Such a far cry from Don the Con's approach....

Pat Sylvest : Stephen Colbert, and all those involved with the show, keep me sane.

parsoumash : The joke Stephen says will NOT be on the show made it to the show lol 9:30

mabesch : Lel they did use the cabinet meeting joke after all.

Just Sayin2420 : Stephen Colbert takes the headlines from the f*ckery of this administration and makes it easier for me to stomach them. His show is therapeutic.

Anjuli Kamins : Yes, I would definitely watch all skits from "how it should have ended" election night!

Possibly A Dreamer : I’ll be honest, I first found Steven on a Comic Con panel where he was moderator for The Hobbit. I thought he was brilliant and looked around for a bit and discovered his show. I’ve never laughed so much and learnt so much about American culture. I then through him discovered John Oliver. The two of them have taught me, a Brit, more than I thought I could know about America (a comment section from a YouTube video of theirs also introduced me to the other side of politics). The West Wing taught me practical politics. Late Night explained how the public views politics and helped me to understand what is going on right this second.

A HR guy who doesn't like micro transactions : Super funny and super smart. Also a decent human being. Awesome!

Charles Frost : Stephen Colbert is the consummate gentleman.

Mary Menatti : It was the night he made fun of 45s tie that captured my attention. I needed to focus my disgust and fear. Stephen spoke for me as he delicately fingered the long tie. I was able to laugh at the foolishness instead of dread it. I've been tuning in every day since then and Stephens quick mind and open tenderness, his bashful flirting, and the brilliant improvisation are cathartic for those of us struggling to express our disappointment. Now, I'm writing a book for my grand children, about my father's immigration from Italy to escape fascism.

M K1 : Glad Stephen is doing so well...I appreciate his honesty and humor

Stephanie Major : So I know no one sane reads the YouTube comments on their videos, but Steven, that election night monologue really helped give me a sense of catharsis for the election. It was to that election what a funeral is to a death. Thank you.

HeritageSelfRespect HealingThrivingSelfWorth : I respect Stephen doing impactful work. Comic relief to ease the frustration of this difficult time “surfing the 🏄🏾‍♀️ madness” priority level headedness & moral compass “this too shall pass”

Lulu Gurl : Interesting. Colbert is just so...all round awesome.

Eulogio Olivo : There's no show with more wit and integrity than this one, truly, and the process is so sophisticated, well put together Mr. Colbert Bless your heart

Galakyllz : I hope Stephen always has a voice and a camera. It was also great to see how sincere he was about his staff - praise to the writers and other staff as well.

Pretty Pixy : I am totally in love with Stephen’s intelligence, wit and honesty! He is my ideal entertainer, teacher, husband, dad, president and MILF (Man etc etc etc 😜) I am in awe of your immense talent 😍😍😍

aisey100 : I wouldn't have minded a couple of hours more of this. Stephen is wonderful, and a real American that kinda give you a bit of hope in the face of these current dark times of the Trump Mafia.

Erica Lambert : When the Colbert Report first aired I was around 14 years old living in a very small, very conservative Kentucky town. I was reaching to find people who thought more like I did instead of what I was constantly surrounded by. I got soo into the Colbert Report and have been just drawn to this man ever since. I'm now 26 and still look to him as sort of a father figure lol. Just seems like such a genuine person and sharp to boot! Keep doing you Mr. Colbert, much of us would be lost in this crazy political world without you!

stephanie brown : When he says " you get to see me" I couldn't agree more. I remember that first show ..he was all in character... funny and intelligent but nervous and hiding a bit. He had George Clooney as his first guest. He and his team have evolved at lot. (Stephen you rock....just being you!) I esp. loved seeing him interact with Tiffany Hadish and Nicki Minaj and Helen Mirren!

spaceflipflops : Stephen Colbert Peace Prize for his humanitarian work.

McDonald's Big Mac : Stephen colbert is a king

RavenStealstheNight : I think the reason he hits such a nerve is because he reflects what so many of us are feeling. Its almost empathic. It's shocking to see and feel, that while all of this madness is going on, it's like being trapped and watching a train wreck. You so badly want to look away, be somewhere else... but we can't. It's real and relentless and never ending. It's exhausting and overly stressful. I think watching Colbert is a welcome release. Trump is about as exciting as a heart attack.
