Watch Stephen Colbert Literally Defenestrate Bill O’Reilly’s Complaints About Stephen Colbert (Video)

The other night, Bill O’Reilly got mad at hippies and the “grievance industry” — America’s supposed cultural/political movement that encourages everyone who isn’t Bill O’Reilly to think they’re a victim of racism or sexism. O’Reilly also had some grievances of his own, especially after being victimized by this Stephen Colbert fellow, whose ratings are nowhere near as impressive as Billo’s, but who has become “the darling of the far left internet which rhapsodizes over him.” Colbert is just as mystified about this, but acknowledges that “for some reason, the far left internet loves me. I mean, I’m in all the hashtags…”

O’Reilly condemns Colbert as a “deceiver” who unfairly characterized him as opposing equality. Not so, says Billo:

“I strongly believe in fighting for equality and also believe institutional bias should be against the law. What I oppose is government trying to impose equality because every human being is different.”

Colbert’s reply is kinda beeeyootiful. You see, he actually agrees with every word O’Reilly says, “even if those words don’t agree with each other.”

“You see, I also believe institutional bias should be against the law, and at the same time, believe that government shouldn’t do anything about it.”

Bing bing bing bing bing.

And here is your bonus clip: Stephen Colbert’s tribute to David Letterman on his retirement, and a somewhat obscure reference to not envying whoever has to fill Letterman’s shoes.

What’s that? You say you want to know what Jon Stewart has to say about the big news? Well by golly, we’ve got that, too, complete with a clip of Colbert and Stewart cracking each other up. Here’s one heck of a sweet tribute to both Colbert and to David Letterman from a guy who takes comedy seriously:

    It will be interesting to see how Steve does. I haven’t watched Letterman for a while, but thought he was good. It would be nice to get things edgy again.

    “O’Reilly condemns Colbert as a “deceiver””…Huh….well I suppose satire does feel like deciet to those who don’t get satire…

    I’ve never been able to watch two minutes of the Tonight Show, not with David Letterman or Johnny Carson or whoever else they put in there. Even Colbert won’t be able to fix it, for me.This switch to the terminally boring Tonight Show and its terminally boring format is like Stephen Colbert got old and sick real fast and now he’s going off to find some peace and quiet so he can just die of something.The Tonight Show is what you watch in Hospice.

      Colbert is taking over the Late Show (CBS – Letterman) not the Tonight Show (NBC – …Carson, Leno, O’Brien, Leno, Fallon). I’d expect it to be a bit different format than Letterman did.

        Yeah, I don’t even know which are which. I just can’t watch the stuff. I prefer staring at corgis on treadmills.

    Colbert did the Letterman tie-wiggle to introduce his farewell message to Letterman. That was funny, and kind of sweet.

    • Nixon, etc.

      I’m totally AMPED to see Letterman Tie-Wiggle at Coachella tomorrow night!!!!!!!!!

  • Ellis_Weiner

    Why does O’Reilly run a crawl of his text on the side of his comments? Does he think his viewers can read?

    Ah truly a clipbait session to warm Becca’s heart, average time on site just spiked considerably I’m thinking.

    Wait . . . the Complainer-in-Chief at the Faux News Wingnut Outrage Factory is bitching about a “Grievance Industry”?Irony rarely reaches 100.0000% purity, but I think they’ve hit the mark this time.
