The Late Show with Stephen Colbert recently celebrated a momentous occasion – Stephen turning 60! The charismatic and witty host welcomed his audience, stating, “Welcome one and all to The Late Show. I’m your host, Stephen Colbert, and you are here for a very special show because tonight is my 60th birthday.” It’s amazing to think that Stephen is now the same age that Ian McKellen was when he portrayed Gandalf in “The Lord of the Rings.” And just like Gandalf, Stephen seems to be embracing his age with grace and humor.

In honor of his birthday, the skies all over the Northern Hemisphere were illuminated by the stunning Aurora Borealis. This spectacular natural light show was caused by a massive solar storm where bursts from the Sun collided with Earth. The lights were so vivid that they could even be seen as far south as Florida, where Governor DeSantis took measures to ban the sky from displaying a pride flag.

But amidst the birthday celebrations, there is an ongoing trial that has captured the nation’s attention – the trial of former President Donald Trump. In his faking business records to cover up bank H, the star witness is none other than Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen. Cohen’s testimony is crucial to the prosecution’s case, as he allegedly served as the middleman in the $130,000 hush money payment to Stormy Daniels.

However, Cohen’s online behavior has been problematic. He has been attacking his former boss on TikTok, live streaming insulting videos discussing Trump, the ongoing trial, and the testimony already underway. This has raised some concerns about Cohen’s credibility. It seems like being in the middle of a scandal involving your boss and a porn star isn’t as glamorous as it may sound.

During his testimony, Cohen revealed an interesting conversation with Trump before his 2015 presidential announcement. Trump allegedly warned Cohen, “Just be prepared, there’s going to be a lot of women coming forward.” Trump playfully listed out various names, jokingly suggesting that Cohen would have to pay them off. However, when it comes to Stormy Daniels, Trump’s defense is that he never slept with her and that Cohen paid her to be quiet as a favor.

The testimony continued, with Cohen shedding light on Trump’s mindset when it came to his marriage. According to Cohen, Trump wasn’t worried about Melania leaving him, stating, “Don’t worry, how long do you think I’ll be on the market for? Not long.” It’s both shocking and concerning to see how casually Trump approached his extramarital affairs.

Amidst all this drama, Trump held a rally at the Jersey Shore in Wildwood, New Jersey. Trump addressed various issues, including the number one concern for voters – the movie “Silence of the Lambs.” It’s intriguing how Trump managed to segue from Stormy Daniels to discussing Hannibal Lecter’s love for having friends over for dinner. It seems like Trump’s mind works in mysterious ways.

During the rally, Trump also talked about hot dogs, reminisced about Frank Sinatra, and even touched upon his tax plan. The speeches were filled with tangents and seemingly random statements that left many scratching their heads. Trump’s ability to ramble and make little sense is truly unparalleled.

All of these incidents are part of Trump’s larger strategy of demonizing immigrants and perpetuating claims that other countries are sending mentally ill people to the United States. It’s a manipulative tactic that plays on people’s fears and prejudices.

Despite the absolute chaos surrounding Trump, Stephen Colbert delivered an entertaining and insightful monologue about the trial and rally. With his razor-sharp wit and ability to dissect the absurd, Colbert kept his audience engaged and amused throughout the show. As always, he provided much-needed comic relief in these tense times.

So, as Stephen Colbert celebrates his 60th birthday, we can only hope for more hilarious monologues and insightful commentary on “The Late Show.” With his unique perspective and quick wit, Colbert continues to be a beloved late-night talk show host who keeps us entertained and informed. Here’s to many more years of laughter, Stephen Colbert style!
