Univision news anchor Jorge Ramos used the opportunity of being a guest on CBS's Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Thursday night to criticize Donald Trump's use of the term “bad hombres” during his final debate with Democrat Hillary Clinton on Wednesday.

The GOP candidate for president used the phrase while discussing his views on illegal immigration, which led Colbert to call Trump a “loco hombre” before discussing Ramos's new documentary, Hate Rising, to explore the Republican campaign's “connection to racism and white nationalism.”

Three of the late-night comedy programs went live to react to Wednesday’s final presidential debate and the assembled hosts and guests offered vulgar jokes comparing Donald Trump to a sex toy, phone sex operator, and man who needs breast feeding while dubbing Trump debate guest “Sarah Palin is the HPV of American politics.”

As it did for the first presidential debate, CBS’s Late Show was live again on Tuesday night to comment on the vice presidential debate as host Stephen Colbert denigrated the Bible with a fake verse about Indiana pizza parlors and crudely joking that Republican nominee Mike Pence is gay giving blowjobs to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

While a guest on CBS's Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night, liberal actor/activist Sean Penn asserted that Americans have two options on November 8: “stick it out” under a Hillary Clinton presidency or “masturbate our way into hell” with Donald Trump.

According to an article posted by Jessica Chasmar -- a continuous news writer for the Washington Times -- Penn was on the program to promote an audio book he narrated entitled Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff that was written by author Pappy Pariah and will be a free download on October 20, but that didn't prevent the guest from speculating on the consequences of this year's presidential election.

At the onset of his monologue on Wednesday, ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel offered a rather lame excuse for why he sticks almost exclusively to joking about Donald Trump and not Democratic presidential opponent Hillary Clinton because she’s too “boring” to be made fun of. If that head-shaking moment wasn’t enough, CBS’s Late Show host Stephen Colbert offered a quip via video that Gollum from Lord of the Rings was assisting Clinton in her debate preparations by playing Trump and whining about “wicked, tricksy immigrants.”

On Wednesday night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, actor, comedian, and former Daily Show regular Lewis Black came on the show to discuss the 2016 election. Prompted by his liberal host to express his “message” to Trump supporters, Black bluntly said they were going to hell. “I'm saying this as a friend. If you vote for Donald Trump, you’re gonna go to hell,” Black stated frankly. After the audience laughed, Black added, “I know this, because God told me.”

Liberal hero and CBS’s Late Show host Stephen Colbert brought his fans to a fever pitch on Wednesday’s show as he proclaimed that it’s “not that offensive” 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sits during the National Anthem to protest supposed oppression of minorities by police officers because the whole reason it’s played at sporting events isn’t patriotism but instead a “marketing” gimmick.

The comedy news Hillary fan club has “entertained” with its one-sided shtick for the entire campaign. Now, the fan club’s preeminent member, Stephen Colbert, will entertain America as its votes come in on election night.

Johnny Carson delivered, and he did so without revealing his party affiliation. That was then. Now, we have late night comics choosing sides. Some, like Trevor Noah, Larry Wilmore and Seth Meyers, are essentially signing up for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

CBS News has fancied itself as a serious, hard-news operation since the days of Walter Cronkite. For all of its heavily documented bias, and though it's now handicapped compared to its Big Three and Fox competition by not having a cable affiliate, it has generally covered and treated the major party conventions as important national events.

So one would think that someone at what used to be known as the Tiffany Network would have persuaded Stephen Colbert, an alleged comedian who has so completely stopped being funny that his late-night show is regularly finishing at or barely above third in the 18-49 ratings to both Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel, to stay away from the site of the Republican National Convention. Nope.

Donald Trump officially launched his presidential bid in 2016, but according to an NBC producer the campaign started “decades” earlier in NBC appearances. For years, Trump campaigned on NBC and CBS late night shows reiterating talking points similar to ones he’s used in his presidential campaign, according to former Tonight Show producer Dave Berg’s July 11, USA Today op-ed.

On The Late Show Tuesday, Stephen Colbert misreported Pope Francis’ recent comments on Christian treatment of gays in order to blame the Roman Catholic Church for historical violence and to make fun of its sacraments and rites.
