    If Republicans were not all drug and alcohol addicts, then we wouldn’t have cartel problems. If the corrupt government would legalize weed, we wouldn’t have cartels. If Americans had jobs and healthcare, we wouldn’t have a drug problem. If we had a single day of vacation we wouldn’t have to do drugs just to drown out our horrible lives.

    ...what about the insane amount of children and families being detained in terrible circumstances at the border? I don't see Stephen getting passed off at Biden for that.

    A “tell” of sorts when he closes his eyes just he says (lie?) the words “cartel members.” As if he actually knows who they are. Go, ask, Rafael.They speak your language.

    Wait, so human traffickers and cartels hang out together WITH their victims and drug shipments in known border patrol areas telegraphing their every move and shouting insults at patrollers and then cross the border when their backs are turned? JFC, Exactly how much video gaming does Cruz do, because there is a whole lot more GTA, Uncharted, and Call of Duty in this story than all three franchises combined.

    Raphael Ted Cruz was born in Canada from Cuban decent, he believes he is white man, he doesn't believe to be a Latino. Ted Cruz is a Canadian man living in Texas. He is supposedly representing Latino interest in Texas. Texas has 38% latino population, about 35% of them of Mexican decent. He was ready for a coup d'etat in the United States, just like his fellow county man and childhood idol Fidel Castro. He also heavyly supported to build a wall to the neighbor Mexico. Ted Cruz needs to be flipped in the next election. Texas doesn't need a gusano in a land that used to be Mexican. Texans-Mexican let's flip this Canadian for a Texas born from Mexican decent. Let s go Texas!

    Also, Cruz got video of border conditions. Why don't you sheep wonder why Biden will not allow news to go see border conditions? I thought this regime was supposed to be transparent, not hiding things. isnets.info/main/kqutsJalxp2VndU/v-deo.html just a blatant distraction by Colbert to keep his zombie sheep viewers from seeing what is happening.

    What an idiote hhhhhhh

  • CioMaria

    Did anyone else notice that he’s wearing a tuxedo or some other satiny vest to do his “investigative reporting”? I haven’t seen his whole “documentary” but isn’t it also weird that they’re using such bright lights if they’re really at border, wouldn’t they be using night vision or cameras that are meant for low light? Also notice that his other hand never comes into frame? My guess is that he’s really hanging out at the back edge of a hotel/resort’s landscaping after attending an event of some sort. I betcha that someone has the zoomed out footage this on their iPhone and he’s holding a cocktail in the hand that you can’t see.
