WASHINGTON, DC – Stephen Colbert, from Comedy Central, was invited by congresswoman, Zoey Lofgren (D-CA), to address a serious issue about Immigration and migrant farm workers, during a hearing of the Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship and Border Security.
Lofgren compared Colbert to celebrity humanitarians such as Angelina Jolie and Bono, but when Colbert opened his mouth to speak, that comparison was hardly the case. Instead Stephen Colbert went on to make a mockery of immigration with his obnoxious jokes. He showed disrespect to not only the migrant workers, but the American people and Congress.
Before Colbert spoke, Lofgren admonished the attendees to refrain from making any “manifestation of approval or disapproval of these proceedings or any other disruptive actions.” She went on to say, “If necessary, the Capitol Police are here to remove anyone who disrupts the hearing.”
Shame on congresswoman, Zoey Lofgren, for inviting, comedian Stephen Colbert, to make a mockery of our system. This is hardly the kind of attention that America needs. It is simply not constructive and worse than a mere waste of time. It didn’t accomplish anything constructive and quite honestly was embarrassing.
