Stephen Colbert mocks the Starbucks Christmas coffee cup "scandal."

I have watched a number of comedians and television hosts weigh in on this ridiculous kerfuffle (Including Ellen Degeneres.), but I thought that Colbert's was just about the funniest.

(That "Paul Blart Mall Bro" comment made me spit out my coffee this morning.) 

Of course I also have to admit that I kind of miss the old Colbert Report so I have somewhat of a soft spot for Stephen.

My one criticism is that he played some of that Feuerstein video, and I hate to see him give that lunatic any air time. The guy is essentially an internet troll who says controversial things in the hopes of being attacked and getting some attention.

But other than that I thought this was quite humorous and very well done.

Colbert is still the king in my book.

    That same idiot, Feuerstein, is claiming that Starbucks is so expensive because of their Planned Parenthood donatians.

    I think it's too bad they're getting so much free advertising via all this attention, and once again it appears they just can't keep their politically correct and highly offensive politics to themselves.

    Because they DIDN'T show favoritism toward any religion?? Good god, it's a red cup!!

    I enjoyed reading the c4p outrage about Starbucks unchristian, anti-christmas red cups. Then Sarah/Bristol/Nancy weighed in and took all of the fun out of their hurt feelings. This is why they shouldn't try to think or form opinions on their own! The should know they must wzait for their esteemed leader to weigh in.

  5. I see Trump weighed in on this, showing us all what a fabulous "businessman" he is.

    As if he gives one tiny shit about Christmas, Christians, or anything else besides money and power.

  6. This is a far more ‘Christian’ act by Starbucks than coloring their cups red: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/11/11/1448565/-Veterans-working-for-Starbucks-receive-amazing-new-perk
    In a nutshell they are expanding their free 2 years of college for vets working there past and present and will.no give this benefit to their families.

    What I love about the war on xmas is that it accomplishes the exact opposite. I'd drink starbucks if they had black cups with pentagrams on them, doesn't make a statement about me, and if anyone's offended, screw them.
