There’s really not that much to say — Stephen Colbert has already done his part to prop up the Democratic president, blaming Donald Trump for the botched withdrawal in Afghanistan and comparing the Taliban to the January 6 rioters. But here he’s getting an assist from Sen. Chuck Schumer in the form of some “backstage antics” at CNN’s “We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert,” meant to be “a celebration of New York City’s comeback” from the coronavirus pandemic.

Where’s his mask?

Just as we thought. @StephenAtHome gives zero f**ks about masks. Unless it's someone else that's not wearing one.

I’d call this tone deaf, but that implies they don’t know. They do, they just really don’t care.

Really torn up about the Americans left in Afghanistan.
— DP (@liveoakrange) August 21, 2021
Colbert will go right back to bashing DeSantis Monday after spending the weekend dancing with a Senator who is clearly torn up about the debacle in Afghanistan.

Jesus, they could a least try doing The Carlton, but that requires coordination. So much cringe. 😆 pic.twitter.com/uKyNlvJ2Er

Grotesque, under the circumstances.

May I borrow some cringe? I ran out.

Even super-lib Don Winslow is appalled that this concert is going on:
ONLY ONE VACCINE SHOT IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND CNN'S NYC CONCERT.
THIS WAS FURTHER CONFIRMED BY ANDERSON COOPER LIVE just a few minutes ago.
At a time when there are TENS OF THOUSANDS of BREAKTHROUGH CASES with people who are fully vaccinated THIS CONCERT IS LITERALLY INSANE. pic.twitter.com/PN0E6ZdQTN
