    Colbert's mom was 92, about the same age as Howard's parents. I wonder how emotional Howard is going to get when it's his turn to mourn.

    I haven't watched this yet, so maybe it is mentioned but when Colbert was 10 his father and 2 brothers died in a plane crash, he is deaf in one ear from a botched operation on his eardrum. Seems he had the sad childhood Howard likes to pretend he had. Howard's life has pretty much been charmed as the death of Bianca at age of 57 or 58 was his first real loss. So when his parents die he's gonna be a mess unless he's completely dead inside or they have a long illness and it comes as a relief.

    Nope. Colbert, like most of us, loved his mother.

    I don't doubt for one moment that Howard loves his mother as much as Stephen loved his. The difference is when Howard gives his heart felt memories of his mother, no one will be tuned in to hear them and those that do will doubt his sincerity.

    You see Steven's fans still love him and trust what he says is true, Howard's fans have been fooled for too long and too often to give a shit anymore.

    Only subscribers to HOWARDTV will get to see the amazing eulogy.

    I'm sure Howard will tease it on his shitty radio show and maybe even plug the funeral home and various contractors fixing up the Rockville Centre home for sale.


    Howard goofing on his 90 year old parents is the polar opposite of funny.
    90 year old people can't hear and have trouble walk......that is killer SHIT!
    Stern did the parents bit the other day just to plug a contractor......and tell us that he buys his parents cars!


    Howard hates his blood relatives.
    All Dr Stern questioning includes...
    "Do you hate your parents?"
    "Do you hate your siblings?"
    "Aren't your children jealous of you?"
    :facepalm:

    Very nice job by Mr Colbert. What a way to publicly tribute your Mom.

    Whether you think Colbert is a brilliant political satirist, or overrated media hyped left wing hack, one thing that everybody can agree on is the man is very patriotic (he has a true respect for the military and does numerous things to suppor them) and a loving family man.
