Stephen Colbert addressed the public Monday night after his television crew was arrested at the US Capitol; praising his employees’ “first-degree puppetry.”
“The Capitol police were just doing their job, my staff was just doing their job, everyone was very professional, everyone was very calm,” the host explained. “My staffers were detained, processed and released. A very unpleasant experience for my staff.”
We're scarred by what we saw last week. It’ll be a long time before we can revisit the Capitol again. It’s going to take a lot of therapy before we can recapture the carefree innocence Stephen Colbert stole from us. https://t.co/hVUL9ImE4y pic.twitter.com/ybsxFWGDMQ

His team was arrested Thursday for “unlawful entry” at the Longworth House Office Building of the US Capitol Complex.
“After they’d finished their interviews, [my staffers] were doing some last-minute puppetry and jokey make-em-ups in a hallway, when Triumph and my folks were approached and detained by Capitol Police,” Colbert said.
He continued, “A lot of paperwork for the Capitol police but a fairly simple story… until the next night when a couple of the TV people started claiming that my puppet squad had quote, ‘committed insurrection’ at the U.S. Capitol building.”
“Responding officers observed seven individuals, unescorted and without Congressional ID, in a sixth-floor hallway,” the police said in a statement. “The building was closed to visitors, and these individuals were determined to be a part of a group that had been directed by the USCP to leave the building earlier in the day.”

They committed insurrection lock them up and lock Stephen Colbert with them
This might be the stupidest thing I’ve read all day. And there’s a lot of stupid on this website alone… so congrats!
“Dems are dirty” – big city cop quote.
“republicans are brainwashed” – reasonable people
If republicans do it, it’s an insurection , but if democrats do it. It’s just a joke. Steven Colbert is an asshole. His show and life is pathetic. I used to be a fan, but now he’s just a woke ass kissing communist.
Colbert’s staffers weren’t there to prevent a legitimately-elected president from being sworn in to office. Colbert’s staffers did not attack capitol police. Colbert’s staffers did not threaten sitting congresspeople. There is a BIG difference between what happened on Jan6 and what happened with Colbert’s staffers. To state otherwise is to be completely delusional. And I don’t think you were ever a fan of his.
But you keep on living in your alternate reality. See how that works out for ya.
Oh ya, I forgot, there’s no free speech with democratic control.
Try posting a criticism of donald trump on truth social. It’ll be deleted and you’ll get banned. That’s how much conservatives believe in free speech.
