Sen. Bernie Sanders Faces Criticism For Deceptive Obama Quotes In Campaign Ad


WELCOME TO “THE LATE SHOW.” I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT.( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
IT IS FRIDAY! THE FRIDAY AUDIENCE. THE FRIDAY EXCITEMENT. THE FRIDAY ELECTRICITY. YOU CANNOT FAKE THAT! IT HAS BEEN A HUGE WEEK IN THE
DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY. THERE WERE SOME BIG PRESIDENTIAL
DROP-OUTS THIS WEEK, INCLUDING FORMER NEW YORK MAYOR MICHAEL
BLOOMBERG, SEEN HERE HUNTING DOWN THE STAFFER WHO TOLD HIM
HE’D LOOK MORE RELATABLE IN THAT SHIRT.( LAUGHTER )
BLOOMBERG SPENT A LOT OF MONEY FOR VERY FEW VOTES, BUT HE DID
LEAVE A STRONG IMPRESSION ON ONE VITAL NON-VOTING DEMOGRAPHIC:
KIDS WHO SAW HIS ADS ON YOUTUBE. ONE 13-YEAR-OLD INTERVIEWED BY
REPORTERS ESTIMATES HE HAS SEEN “AT LEAST HUNDREDS” OF
BLOOMBERG’S ADS WHILE WATCHING GAMING TUTORIALS. THAT’S RIGHT: MICHAEL BLOOMBERG
PUT ADS ON GAMING TUTORIALS. HIS TIPS: COLLECT AND SPEND
BILLIONS OF COINS, THEN IMMEDIATELY DIE ON THE FIRST
LEVEL.( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )
AND IT MADE AN IMPRESSION. I’LL GET THROUGH IT. AND BLOOMBERG’S ADS WORKED. ONE EIGHT-YEAR-OLD’S MOM SAID
“HER SON WAS INSPIRED BY BLOOMBERG. ALL OF A SUDDEN, HE WAS VERY
PASSIONATE ABOUT IT. MIKE’S GOING TO DO ALL THESE
THINGS. HE’S NOT GOING TO BUILD THE
WALL.” AND AFTER SUPER TUESDAY, THERE
ARE A LOT OF THINGS MIKE’S NOT GOING TO DO. BUT ONE PERSON STILL ABLE TO DO
SOME THINGS IS BERNIE SANDERS. UP UNTIL NOW, SANDERS HAS BEEN
THE ONLY CANDIDATE WHO HAS NOT RELEASED AN OBAMA AD. BUT AFTER HIS LESS-THAN-SUPER
TUESDAY, BERNIE SANDERS DECIDED TO EMBRACE THE FORMER PRESIDENT.>>BERNIE IS SOMEONE WHO HAS THE
VIRTUE OF SAYING EXACTLY WHAT HE BELIEVES– GREAT AUTHENTICITY,
GREAT PASSION– AND IS FEARLESS. BERNIE SERVED ON THE VETERAN’S
COMMITTEE AND GOT BILLS DONE. I THINK PEOPLE ARE READY FOR A
CALL TO ACTION. THEY WANT HONEST LEADERSHIP
WHO CARES ABOUT THEM. THEY WANT SOMEBODY WHO’S GOING
TO FIGHT FOR THEM! AND THEY WILL FIND IT IN BERNIE. THAT’S WHY I FEEL THE BERN!>>I’M BERNIE SANDERS, AND I
APPROVE THIS MESSAGE.>>Stephen: WOW. HE IS STRAIGHT UP STEALING
BIDEN’S WHOLE IDENTITY.( LAUGHTER )
WHAT’S NEXT?( AS BERNIE )
“I’M BERNIE SANDERS, AND I HAVE A MESSAGE FOR THE AMERICAN
PEOPLE. NO MORE MALARKEY. I WAS ARRESTED ON THE WAY TO SEE
NELSON MANDELA, AND I ONCE FOUGHT A MARGINALIZED AFRICAN
AMERICAN CHILD NAMED CORN POP. COME ON! HORSEFEATHERS! CRACKERJACK! THIS IS WHAT YOU RUBES LIKE,
RIGHT? COME ON!”
NOW, HERE’S THE RUB: BERNIE CHERRY-PICKED HIS QUOTES FOR
THAT AD, AND MANY OF THEM OMIT IMPORTANT CONTEXT. FOR EXAMPLE, THE “FEEL THE BERN”
QUOTE CAME FROM A SPEECH IN WHICH OBAMA WAS ENDORSING
HILLARY CLINTON. BERNIE’S FACED A LOT OF
CRITICISM FOR THIS AD, BUT HE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE BACKING DOWN. TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT HE JUST
RELEASED JUST TODAY.>>TONIGHT I’D LIKE TO TALK
ABOUT MY BROTHER, BERNIE SANDERS, A.K.A., MY BEST FRIEND. THIS IS AN EXTRAORDINARY MAN. HE’S REVOLUTIONIZING BASKETBALL. BERNIE SANDERS KILLED OSAMA BIN
LADEN. ♪ I… SO IN LOVE WHERE YOU ♪
BERNIE SANDERS. BERNIE SANDERS FOR PRESIDENT.( APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: THAT COULD HELP. THAT COULD HELP. THAT COULD PUSH HIM OVER THE
TOP. THIS WEEK, WE FOUND OUT THAT
TRUMP’S GETTING HIS OWN POP-UP ADS IN THE SKY, BECAUSE
THE PRESIDENT’S REELECTION CAMPAIGN IS PLANNING TO FLY A
BLIMP ABOVE SWING STATES. WOW. A GIANT, SLOW-MOVING, DISASTER
WAITING TO HAPPEN IS GETTING HIS OWN BLIMP!( LAUGHTER )
OF COURSE, HE MIGHT–( APPLAUSE )
HE MIGHT… OF COURSE, HE MIGHT BE USING THE
BLIMP JUST TO FLY AWAY FROM US DISEASE-RIDDLED HUMANS, BECAUSE
WE’RE ALL WORRIED ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS. THERE’S A LOT OF ANXIETY. AND I’LL TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT
IN TONIGHT’S “GOIN’ VIRAL.”>>I’M DATING THE
MUCINEX GUY.>>Stephen: WE’RE SLOWLY
LEARNING MORE DETAILS ABOUT THIS THING. FOR INSTANCE, CHINESE SCIENTISTS
HAVE IDENTIFIED TWO STRAINS OF THE CORONAVIRUS: ORIGINAL AND
EXTRA CRISPY. ONE OF THE BIG PIECES OF ADVICE
TO COMBAT CORONAVIRUS IS DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE. BUT FOR ONE PUBLIC HEALTH
OFFICIAL IN CALIFORNIA, THAT WAS EASIER SAID THAN DONE.>>TODAY START WORKING ON NOT
TOUCHING YOUR FACE BECAUSE ONE MAIN WAY VIRUSES SPREAD IS WHEN
YOU TOUCH YOUR OWN MOUTH, NOSE, ORIZE.( LAUGHTER )
( LAUGHTER ).
>>Stephen: YES– YES, PLEASE
DON’T TOUCH YOUR… MOUTH… NOSE… OR EYES. MY COLLEAGUE, DR. ROBINSON, CAN
EXPLAIN FURTHER.( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THE CORONAVIRUS IS ALSO HAVING A HUGE EFFECT ON EDUCATION. INCLUDING IN THE U.S. THERE ARE NOW SCHOOL CLOSURES IN
22 COUNTRIES ON THREE CONTINENTS, ADDING UP TO 290.5
MILLION STUDENTS WORLDWIDE. SO MANY SCHOOLS ARE OFFERING
ONLINE CLASSES, INCLUDING ONLINE PHYSICAL EDUCATION, WHERE
STUDENTS FOLLOW ALONG AS AN INSTRUCTOR DEMONSTRATES PUSH-UPS
ONSCREEN. AND TO GET THE FULL GYM CLASS
EXPERIENCE, THEY ALSO SEND BULLIES TO YOUR HOUSE TO THROW
BALLED-UP WET PAPER TOWELS AT YOU WHILE YOU TRY TO PEE.( LAUGHTER )
BUT NOT EVERYONE’S ACING TELE-SCHOOL. AROUND THE WORLD, GRANDPARENTS
ARE PITCHING IN FOR CHILDCARE. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO HELPING THE
KIDS WITH THE ONLINE CLASSES, THE GRANDPARENTS DO NOT ALWAYS
KNOW THE TECHNOLOGY.( AS GRANDPARENT )
“LET’S SEE HERE. IT SAYS HERE TO ‘USE THE
ONE-TIME PASSCODE TO ACCESS THE LEARNING PORTAL.’
OKAY. HUH. YOU KNOW WHAT, PUMPKIN? HOW ABOUT WE DO SOMETHING WE
BOTH LIKE: TAKING OUR PUDDING CUPS OUTSIDE AND YELLING AT THE
BIRDS. DAMN BLUE JAYS!'”
HERE IN THE U.S., THE MAJORITY OF THE CASES SEEM TO BE CENTERED
AROUND SEATTLE. I GUESS IT WAS A BAD TIME FOR
STARBUCKS TO TEST-MARKET THEIR NEW COFFEE TROUGH.( LAUGHTER )
DELICIOUS, DELICIOUS, DEEPS HOT. DESPITE THIS RISK, THE
ORGANIZERS OF NEXT WEEKEND’S “EMERALD CITY COMICON” IN
SEATTLE SAY IT WILL GO ON AS SCHEDULED. BRINGING THOUSANDS OF NERDS
TOGETHER IN THE MIDDLE OF A VIRAL OUTBREAK? FORGET “DR. WHO.” I WANNA KNOW DR. WHY?( LAUGHTER )
COMICON’S NOT THE ONLY VENUE YOU CAN STILL ATTEND DURING THE
OUTBREAK, BECAUSE ACCORDING TO A MEDICAL EXPERT, COMPARED TO
OTHER COMMUNAL AREAS, “THE GYM IS NOT RISKIER.” COOL! I CAN’T WAIT TO DEFINITELY
CONTINUE GOING TO THE GYM TO PUMP MY IRONS AND SQUAT MY
THRUSTS. I LOVE THE GRUNTING AND THE
SMELLS.( LAUGHTER )
COME ON, HEALTH EXPERTS! STOP TELLING US TO AVOID FUN
PLACES LIKE CONCERTS AND SPORTING EVENTS BUT SAYING,
“GYM’S ALL CLEAR!” NEXT THEY’RE GOING TO SAY, “STAY
AWAY FROM PIZZA, BUT FEEL FREE TO SWING BY THE BROCCOLI STORE.”( LAUGHTER )
NOW SOME BUSINESSES– NO ONE ASKED FOR THIS.( APPLAUSE )
I’M GLAD YOU’RE ENJOYING THIS. I’M SO GLAD, MAKES ME HAPPY,
SMILING LITTLE BOY OVER THERE. SOME BUSINESSES ARE BEING EXTRA
CAREFUL, PARTICULARLY TECH COMPANIES. TWITTER HAS TOLD ALL OF ITS
EMPLOYEES TO WORK AT HOME BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS. YES, IMPORTANT– TWITTER DOES
NOT WANT TO CREATE A HARMFUL, TOXIC ENVIRONMENT… IN REAL LIFE. EVEN TINDER IS TRYING TO HELP
FIGHT CORONAVIRUS. THE DATING APP NOW HAS A POPUP
WARNING ABOUT THE DANGERS OF THE HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS AND
POTENTIALLY DEADLY DISEASE. I BELIEVE WE HAVE A SCREENSHOT
OF THAT WARNING. “COVID-19 IS HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS. PLEASE WASH YOUR HANDS
THOROUGHLY BEFORE YOU AND A STRANGER SMASH IN THIS
P.F. CHANG’S BATHROOM.”( LAUGHTER )
LETTUCE WRAP, BABY.>>Jon: EWWWW! EWWWW! NOE.>>Stephen: P.F. CHANG? I LIKE P.F. CHANG. AMAZON IS ALSO TAKING
PRECAUTIONS. THEY’VE TOLD THEIR SEATTLE
EMPLOYEES TO WORK FROM HOME ALL MONTH. AND IF YOU WORK ON AMAZON PRIME,
YOU GET SENT HOME THE NEXT DAY. AND THERE’S ONE AMAZON EMPLOYEE
WHO CAN’T SELF-QUARANTINE, AND SHE’S STARTING TO GET ANXIOUS
ABOUT THE VIRUS.>>ALEXA, HOW TALL IS MOUNT
EVEREST?>>WHO CARES? I’LL NEVER SEE EVEREST BECAUSE
YOUR FILTHY CHILDREN WILL GIVE ME CORONAVIRUS.( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: WE’VE GOT A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU TONIGHT. NEIL deGRASSE TYSON IS HERE. STICK AROUND.

    Bernie is criticized for actual words Obama said, Biden lied about his education, about being arrested with Mandela?????? Biden will always lie.

    Wow! No it’s not tired. You Bernie die hard supporters are as sensitive and extreme as comrade Drumpf supporters. There’s a parallel between your 2 groups. He chose to enter the race where things can get vicious. If Bernie Sanders can’t take the heat, he should get out of the kitchen. From the very beginning, I said I don’t want Bernie to be the nominee because he will lose, his policies are too extreme and unrealistic. I earn between $38,000-$72,000/year pay 33%-34% in taxes, and this joker said he will raise taxes for the middle class! I would have taken any of the other democratic candidates except for Tulsi Gabbard over Sanders. Lucky for him, they all dropped out so now my choice is Biden. I remember the last time his supporters were bitter and refused to vote for Hillary because he hung in till the very end. He’s part of the reason we have the clown and shit show in the White House! If he miraculously gets nominated, let’s see what happens this time. Payback’s a bee-atch!

    Oh good gods, wash your hands, sneeze or cough into your elbow, stay home when you are sick. This is overkill for a virus that in the same family as the common cold and the flu. The prevention and treatment is the same! Go the the doctor if your respiratory system becomes compromised. This is NOTHING to panic over – thank you media overkill for making it so.

    Why wouldn't Bernie put out an ad saying "Even Obama, the guy who preached change in his campaign thinks I'm cool!"?

    The DNC will not let Bernie be the be their nominee, Joe will not bring voters out and we get 4 more of trump.

    The quoted weren't deceptive… How can his own words about someone IN FULL HIGH QUALITY AUDIO… be deceptive?

    If we don’t step up now. We’ll be stuck with another 2016 – stop Biden now or suffer the nothingness or even 4 more years of Trump!

    About time Bernie fights dirty like his vapid opponents! He has taken the higher ground for far too long!

    Obama wasn't a saint. Let's remember he vowed to stop wars and then escalated. He also is responsible for thousands of dead civilians because of his extending the drone program as well as the invasion into peoples lives by government being exposed by Snowden. Obama might have done some good but he did a lot of bad. Stop praising him as the Dems golden child. He's not

    The Democrats focus is getting rid of trump. Bernie's focus is on changing the system that created trump. The Democratic leadership wants to get rid of trump but does not want Bernie, because they are part of that corrupt system and are willing to settle for Biden.
    Biden or trump will lead us to a disaster for the bottom 60 percent of the Country's
    Population.

    In your hearts you know the answer.

    Best wishes to all of you !

    PK

    What happened to the FLU? If Coronavirus isn't the Flu where is it then? We should be worried about two viruses right now the flu and Coronavirus!

    Nice job, Bernie…can't get the job done w/out a butchered campaign video of you & Obama? What happened to running on the issues? You want my vote, Bernie? #sticktotheissues
    Btw, very nice job on the #Monologue, Stephen — I wish I could've seen the staffers jump back when you tossed the #script that you touched back at them. 🙂 LOL

    You mean like every Democratic candidate has done thus far? Biden won't beat Trump, have you heard him speak???? He's a bumbling fool and Trump will skewer him. If you want us to win you'll vote for Bernie. Plain and simple.

    My boy Bernie is going hard. Style and grace. Been on the grind for decades and he’s still more coherent than trump and Biden

    Colbert will help Biden win, Biden will lose to Trump, Colbert will cry for 4 more years about how we f*cking got here..
    Do better STEPHEN!

    Are you seriously attacking Bernie's vanilla ads? Were you born yesterday? Have you ever seen an American Election in your life?

    "Don't touch your face" is a guideline I can promise you I have no prospects of following. I don't even try, anymore. Give me something I can use.

    Hahahaha Obama all but endorsed Bernie Sanders! Creepy Joe's gotta be lookin' for some kids to show his hairy legs to right now . . .

    oh no notice while Stephen Colbert is throwing his satanic Devil horn sign that he's trying to cast a spell on you wow putting on glasses so you can't see his eyes changing like a f**** vampire lizard he is

    How is the porn community handling Coronavirus? I mean it's one thing to tell the general public not to touch their own faces, but it's quite another to tell something like this to a porn stars.

    If I see a Trump blimp, I'll know at once that instead of a goodyear, it will go up like the hindenburg.

    Good; about time Bernie showed America he's as capable of playing hardball politics as MSNBC. I wish the other candidate would start talking policy, in turn.

    FYI, the only thing edited out of the exerts in the ad was "Bernie is fearless" and "I don't know Bernie that well because he wasn't in my administration" Also Bernie cleared the ad with Obama days before it aired.

    Comic con was wasn't postponed before this episode was taped. I was notified earlier that morning that it was being rescheduled.

    Taking away power to choose the president from corrupted delegates and superdelegates (the electoral college) and giving it BACK to the American voter is NOT COMMUNISM..it is DEMOCRACY. Please read to get the facts here:
    berniesanders.com/issues

    Obama didn't endorse Biden, he faked it and got no criticism before super Tuesday, that's why Bernie did the same, because they are winning votes on the back of great people but in this instance if they criticise Bernie but not Biden for doing this then they are hypocrites. Testing the DNC corruption unlike 2016 were Bernie got silenced by a vagina who pokemon goes to the polls and that corporate money. Let me be clear, BIDEN WILL BE DESTROYED BY TRUMP LIKE HILLARY WAS don't make the same mistake twice…

    Why didn’t you report anything on mike Bloomberg’s Obama ad? And don’t say you didn’t see it that’s impossible.

    Bernie and Joe should just big up themselves, and not attack each other, which creates more division, disagreement and lack of enthusiasm between the Far left and Central-Left. These attacks on each other is only to the advantage of Trump. You dumb shits, focus on getting trump out.

    Colbert you are a prize to the moderate democrats who just want to give the impression that social justice, responsible economic and government institutions should exist. It’s all about looking the part and not actually wanting or participating in change. All those jokes throughout the years were just filler. I hope your happy with the money you’ve made.

    To quote Randy Rainbow "Any Dem will do. " I plead with the People to remember that Trump needs to go bye bye, So please all you Bernie supporters who voted for Trump last time out of spite, don't do that again if your man does not get the nod during the convention. This country will not survive another 4 years of Trump's rule.

    Let's talk about the important elephant hanging outside the room here, that being…. who do I need to speak to about getting a Broccoli Store franchise?

    I think people need to realize that a lot of the fun in making jokes about Trump is the reaction to them. Think about this when jokes are made towards YOUR particular candidate of choice. Of course Bernie's ad is going to make the round of jokes, because it makes an impact on the campaigns. It's even a bigger dig at Biden!

    Joe Biden is a fraud. Bernie was in the civil rights movement and was arrested for it. Joe Biden had to lie about being arrested with Nelson Mandela because Joe Biden only thinks of black people as political props.

    Bernie: Biden is the establishment!

    Also Bernie: Heres the President that Biden served as VP under talking nice about me!

    Guess Obama isn't the establishment, but Biden is?

    Centrist/Moderate corporate shills like you Stephen Colbert, are the cars that don’t get out of the way of the ambulance.

    Me, with a cup of coffee in the morning: "Gee, I sure hope no viruses tell me about their love life."

    Virus: "I'M DATING THE MUCINEX GUY"

    Bernie Sanders is a educated hard working sharp man! Biden has dementia. There’s videos of Biden running for president in 80’s and him lying! The media called him out for it where is that today! who do you want for president?

    You know the ONLY way you could justify claiming those were deceptive Obama quotes in those Bernie ads is if you believe that any lie is acceptable if it silences and harms a "christ killer" Jew.
    Is that christian doctrine (pushed by the aristocracy who wanted to get money from lenders but wanted sometimes to not pay it back, in feudal Europe) why Stephen is so dead set against Bernie?

    Can someone tell Trump to, "make sure they use Hydrogen" for the blimp. It's the "Hot" new chemical to use and his people with find it very "Illuminating"

    It's refuting all the current media talking points by having a video of Obama characterizing Bernie, how is that misleading?

    Telling the truth means Deceptive Quotes to establishment media. Pigs.i thought Colbert was better than that but his white savior complex & big bank account are his true motivator.

    I wish that Larry David would campaign with Bernie. Many people feel that Bernie doesn't smile enough and seems to be angry most of the time. Well. I think he looks angry because he is angry. Bernie's angry because the average hard working American has been falling behind since the Reagan Era while the rich have only gotten richer. If Larry David goes on the campaign trail with Bernie, he will help lighten up the atmosphere. I saw a five minute clip of Bernie and Larry talking about finding out that they were distant cousins. I've never seen Bernie laugh and smile so much in my life as he did during that 5 minutes with Larry. Whenever Bernie gets too serious, Larry can do a 'Bernie' impression. Larry is hilarious and I think that they would make a great team on the campaign trail. 😂👍

    Trump a "disaster" waiting to happen.
    And liberals are still waiting, because they would rather see America fail, then for Trump to succeed.
    All I can say to you, cry baby liberals, is don't hold your breath waiting for that disaster to happen.
    On second thought, hold your breath if you like, stick a trash bag over your head and tie it off. America will get by just fine without you.
