The Kids From Florida Aren't Acting

The Kids From Florida Aren't Acting



WELCOME TO "THE LATE SHOW." I'M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THE BIG STORY– THE BIG STORY TONIGHT CONTINUES
TO BE THE INSPIRING ACTIVISM OF CHILDREN. TODAY, STUDENTS ALL OVER FLORIDA
WALKED OUT OF THEIR CLASSROOMS AND WERE JOINED BY KIDS IN OHIO,
KENTUCKY, ILLINOIS, ARIZONA, IOWA, AND A HUGE GROUP OF
STUDENTS FROM MARYLAND, VIRGINIA, AND D.C., WHO
DESCENDED ON OUR NATION'S CAPITOL. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
YES! GOTTA GIVE IT UP. THE ADULTS– THE ADULTS JUST
DON'T GET IT, SO THE KIDS "GOT WOKE." NEED PROOF THAT ADULTS DON'T
GET IT? REMEMBER HOW AWKWARD IT WAS WHEN
I JUST SAID "GOT WOKE"? ( LAUGHTER )
THERE IT IS. MEANWHILE, THE KIDS FROM
PARKLAND HELD A MASSIVE RALLY ON THE STEPS OF THE FLORIDA STATE
CAPITOL. THEIR DEMANDS ARE SIMPLE:
>> NEVER AGAIN SHOULD STUDENTS HAVE TO PROTEST FOR THEIR LIVES. NEVER AGAIN SHOULD AN INNOCENT
LIFE BE TAKEN WHILE TRYING TO GAIN AN EDUCATION. >> WE ARE COMING AFTER YOU. WE ARE COMING AFTER EVERY SINGLE
ONE OF YOU AND DEMANDING THAT YOU TAKE ACTION, DEMANDING THAT
YOU MAKE A CHANGE. >> WHAT WE MUST DO NOW IS ENACT
CHANGE, BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT WE DO TO THINGS THAT FAIL. WE CHANGE THEM. >> I'M NOT HERE FOR A FIGHT. I'M NOT HERE TO ARGUE WITH YOU. I JUST WANT TO SPEAK! I JUST WANT TO SEE YOUR FACE AND
KNOW WHY! >> PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT HOW
WE AREN'T SERIOUS BECAUSE WE'RE CHILDREN, BUT HAVE YOU HEARD MY
FRIENDS TALK? WE'RE SERIOUS. >> I WILL FIGHT EVERY SINGLE
DAY, AND I KNOW EVERYONE ELSE HERE WILL FIGHT FOR THE REST OF
THEIR LIVES TO SEE SENSIBLE GUN LAWS IN THIS COUNTRY SO THAT
KIDS DON'T HAVE TO FEAR GOING BACK TO SCHOOL. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>> Stephen: WHAT? I'M SORRY. I'M SORRY. I DIDN'T CATCH ALL OF THAT. I WAS READING ON TWITTER ABOUT
HOW ALL MILLENNIALS ARE LAZY AND ENTITLED. ( APPLAUSE )
NOW, THIS COMES– WISH I COULD HAVE HEARD THAT. THIS COMES ON THE HEELS OF LAST
NIGHT WHEN, WITH PARKLAND STUDENTS WATCHING FROM THE
GALLERY, STATE HOUSE MEMBERS VOTED DOWN A MOTION TO DEBATE AN
EXISTING BILL THAT WOULD BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS AND
LARGE-CAPACITY AMMUNITION MAGAZINES. >> WHAT BILL DID THEY VOTE ON? PORN. WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THERE? YOU BETTER BE LOADING A GUN
YOUNG MAN! KIDS, KIDS TODAY. IT'S HARD NOT TO BE INSPIRED BY
THESE KIDS BUT SOME PEOPLE HAVE MANAGED TO DO TLIKE FORMER
GEORGIA CONGRESSMAN AND GREASY BAG FULL OF CASH JACK KINGSTON. KINGSTON APPEARED ON CNN
YESTERDAY TO CALL OUT THESE TRAUMATIZED STUDENTS AND CALL
THEM FRAUD. >> DO WE REALLY THINK– AND I
SAY THIS SINCERELY– DO WE REALLY THINK 17-YEAR-OLDS ON
THEIR OWN ARE GOING TO PLAN A NATIONWIDE RALLY? I WOULD SAY TO YOU VERY PLAINLY
THAT ORGANIZED GROUPS THAT ARE OUT THERE, LIKE GEORGE SOROS,
ARE ALWAYS READY TO TAKE THE CHARGE, AND IT'S KIND OF LIKE
INSTANT RALLY, INSTANT PROTEST. >> JACK, TEENAGERS ARE PRETTY
GOOD AT PLANNING BIG GATHERINGS BY THEMSELVES. ( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) I DON'T UNDERSTAND. I MEAN, DIDN'T YOU EVER GO TO A
PARTY IN HIGH SCHOOL? OH. OH, NEVER MIND. I WITHDRAW MY QUESTION. THERE WEREN'T ANY AT YOUR HIGH
SCHOOL. ( LAUGHTER )
EVERYONE STAYED IN AND STUDIED, JACK. AND KINGSTON'S NOT ALONE. MANY ONLINE ARE ACCUSING THE
PARKLAND SURVIVORS OF BEING SO-CALLED "CRISIS ACTORS" WHO
TRAVEL TO THE SITES OF SHOOTINGS TO INSTIGATE FURY
AGAINST GUNS. THAT'S RIGHT. WE'RE BEING TAKEN IN BY THE
DAZZLING THEATRICAL PERFORMANCES OF HIGH SCHOOL ACTORS. WE'VE ALL BEEN DUPED BEFORE. "I GUESS YOU COULD SAY THIS
TRULY IS… OUR TOWN." ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) ♪ ♪ ♪
THAT IS WRONG ON A LOT OF LEVELS, NOT JUST BECAUSE IT
DIMINISHES THE TRAGEDY OF WHAT THESE KIDS ARE EXPERIENCE, BUT
IT ALSO– IT ALSO GIVES THEATER MAJORS FALSE HOPE THAT SOME DAY
THEY'LL GET JOBS. I SPEAK FROM EXPERIENCE HERE. IMPROV IS WHERE THE BIG MONEY
IS. AND HERE'S PARKLAND STUDENT
CAMERON KASKY ON THE QUESTION OF WHETHER HE'S A PAID "CRISIS
ACTOR." >> IF YOU HAD SEEN ME IN OUR
SCHOOL'S PRODUCTION OF "FIDDLER ON THE ROOF," YOU WOULD KNOW
THAT NOBODY WOULD PAY ME TO ACT FOR ANYTHING. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>> Stephen: THAT'S VERY GOOD. MAYBE NOT, BUT IN THE SPIRIT OF
"FIDDLER," THESE KIDS ARE FINDING OUT THAT OBEYING THE
N.R.A. IS A REPUBLICAN "TRADITIOOONNN!"
♪ TRADITION ♪ DON'T GET ME WRONG. THEY WOULD LISTEN "IF YOU WERE A
RICH MAN ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪
( APPLAUSE ) AND IT WASN'T JUST INTERNET
CRAZIES ATTACKING THESE KIDS ONLINE. THEY WERE JOINED BY TRUMP SON
AND MAN TELLING THE BOUNCER TO CHECK THE LIST AGAIN,
DONALD TRUMP JR., WHO LIKED TWEETS ATTACKING A FLORIDA
MASSACRE SURVIVOR. WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY:
THE DOUCHE DOESN'T FALL FAR FROM THE BAG. MEANWHILE, D.J.T.J. IS IN INDIA
THIS WEEK TO TOUT NEW TRUMP-BRANDED APARTMENTS NEAR
DELHI, AND THE COUNTRY HAS WELCOMED HIM WITH
FULL-PAGE GLOSSY NEWSPAPER ADS TRUMPETING TRUMP'S ARRIVAL THAT
SAY THINGS LIKE, "TRUMP IS HERE. ARE YOU INVITED?"
KIND OF EXCITING. ALTHOUGH, THE AD REALLY SHOULD
SAY, "TRUMP IS HERE, ARE YOU INVITED? NO, NOT THAT TRUMP, THE OTHER
ONE. NO, NOT IVANKA, EITHER. SHE HAD A THING. IT'S DON JR., THE ONE WHO'S
ALWAYS WET FOR SOME REASON." A LOT OF FANS HERE TONIGHT. THE TRUMPS HAVE A LOT OF FANS. THESE INVITES DIDN'T COME CHEAP. THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION OFFERED
HOME BUYERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO PAY ABOUT $38,000 TO "JOIN
MR. DONALD TRUMP JR. FOR A CONVERSATION AND DINNER." YES, IT'S A BIG OPPORTUNITY. USUALLY, USUALLY, TO MEET TRUMP
JR., YOU HAVE TO BE RUSSIAN. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT WAS. AND THESE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO
GET THEIR MONEY'S WORTH. CHECK OUT THIS INTERVIEW HE
GAVE TO INDIAN TELEVISION YESTERDAY. >> I THINK THERE IS SOMETHING
ABOUT THE SPIRIT OF THE INDIAN PEOPLE THAT'S UNIQUE HERE TO
OTHER PARTS OF THE EMERGING WORLD. I CAN– YOU KNOW, YOU GO THROUGH
A TOWN, AND YOU, YOU KNOW– I DON'T MEAN TO BE GLIB ABOUT IT,
BUT YOU CAN SEE THE POOREST OF THE POOR, AND THERE'S STILL A
SMILE ON A FACE. >> Stephen: YES. I MEAN, THERE'S NOTHING WORSE
THAN A DEPRESSING POOR. I'VE SAID IT BEFORE: WOULD IT
HAVE KILLED THOSE DUST BOWL

  1. People and Audience are laughing but it is really sad , it is sad cause nothing will change .. some of those kids today protesting ..will become corrupt and be a part of that System .. Money and Power will change them too
    The Devil never dies .. and he is not Red .. he is White

  2. What about Jussie Smollett faking his own attack was that a conspiracy theory, I mean he actually did hire Crisis Actors Is he right wing too, nope he's just plain GUILTY!

  3. Y'all can take my kids but try to take my guns and I'll go full "overcompensation ferr my lack of manhood" on y'all. Y'all should be greatful i play border security on the weekends

  4. BITCH!
    YOU THINK 17y/o TEENAGERS WOULDN'T DARE TO DO JUST FUCKING THAT?! HAVE YOU EVER BEEN SEVENTEEN?!?!! WE HAVE OPINIONS TOO! AND PEOPLE HAVE SOCIAL RELATION WHERE THEY CAN RELATE TO THOSE WHO AGREED!!!

    THERE ARE MANY FUCKING TEENAGES WHO DARE TO GO SCHOOL-SHOOTING, SO WHY THE FUCK NOT DOING A NATIONAL-WIDE PROTESTS?!?!!! YOU THINK PROTEST IS HEAVIER THAN KILLING?!?!!

  5. Should we get rid of the first Amendment. Then I don't have to listen or read stupid comments. Do ya see where it's going? BTW, where is that blonde hair girl that said things to contradict others.i guess those clips will be hard to find one,wonder why

  6. You can go through town and see the poorest of the poor, says he from his $38,000 a head dinner. Using the AVERAGE wage, not the lowest wages, but using the average wage, tRumps dinner would cost the AVERAGE Indian 22.75 years pay. Who says the tRumps are out of touch with reality?
