Stephen Colbert Surprised Viewers With His Blistering Take On Hillary Clinton’s Emails

We’re guessing she wasn’t amused

Late Show host Stephen Colbert is no fan of Donald Trump. And when he opened a segment this week riffing on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, it sounded like he was about to tread some familiar ground, downplaying the nature of the controversy and scoring some easy points against overzealous Republicans.

But then things took a very different spin when he decided to “take the gloves off” in a hilarious new segment. When Colbert is at his best, he’s a viciously insightful truth teller who isn’t afraid to hold powerful people accountable while making the rest of us crack up. Backed with a little old school 80’s rap battle music, he fired off some powerful (and ridiculous) shots at Hillary’s reputation. Even if you’re the world’s biggest Clinton fan, it’s hard not to laugh at some of these gems:

“Secretary Clinton, you are so untrustworthy that Beyoncé is working on a concept album about you.”

“You’re so reckless on the Internet that AOL has asked for its 40 free hours back.”

“You are so bad at running for president that I almost remembered who Martin O’Malley is.”

“Since you’re bad at lying, let me show you how to do it: ‘I trust Hillary Clinton.’”

And, of course:

“You’re so bad at running for president, the only person you could beat is Donald Trump.”

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
