Small Town Big News: Anti-Trump Books Disappearing From Idaho Library


SOMETIMES IT’S NICE TO TAKE A
BREAK FROM THE BIG NATIONAL HEADLINES, AND TAKE A LOOK AT
THE OVERLOOKED LOCAL STORIES. WHICH I DO IN MY BRAND NEW
LONG-RUNNING SEGMENT “SMALL TOWN BIG NEWS.”>>BIG NEWS!>>Stephen: TONIGHT’S “SMALL
TOWN BIG NEWS” COMES FROM COEUR D’ALENE, IDAHO, WHICH YOU
MAY KNOW AS THE HOME OF THE MUSEUM OF NORTH IDAHO–
PERFECT FOR ANYONE WHO WENT TO SOUTH IDAHO AND SAID, “THERE
MUST BE MORE!”( LAUGHTER )
THE COEUR D’ALENE PUBLIC LIBRARY HAS CAUGHT SOME ATTENTION
BECAUSE “BOOKS CRITICIZING PRESIDENT TRUMP KEEP GOING
MISSING.” THE DISAPPEARING BOOKS COULD
HAVE TOPICS LIKE “GUN CONTROL, WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE,
L.G.B.T.Q. ISSUES, AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.” OH, MAN, THEN I’M SURE THEY GOT
TO MY FAVORITE BOOK, “NANCY DREW AND THE CASE OF THE WRONGFULLY
CONVICTED LESBIAN COUPLE WHO VOTED TO BAN BUMP STOCKS.”( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
IT’S A GOOD BOOK. IT’S A GOOD READ. LONG TITLE, VERY LONG– MOST OF
THE BOOK– MOST OF THE BOOK IS JUST TITLE. HERE’S WHAT’S CRAZY: THESE BOOKS
AREN’T BEING STOLEN. THEY’RE BEING “HIDDEN IN SPACES
THROUGHOUT THE LIBRARY.” THIS JERK IS TAKING LIBRARY
BOOKS AND PUTTING THEM BACK IN THE WRONG PLACE. SO CLEARLY THE SUSPECT IS
ANYONE WHO’S EVER USED A LIBRARY.( LAUGHTER )
LIKE ALL LEGENDARY CRIMINALS, THIS THIEF LEFT A CALLING CARD. IN THIS CASE, A LETTER TO THE
LIBRARIAN THAT SAID:( IN CREEPY ANONYMOUS VOICE )
“I AM GOING TO CONTINUE HIDING THESE BOOKS IN THE MOST OBSCURE
PLACES I CAN FIND.” YES, GENIUS! NO ONE WILL EVER LOOK FOR A BOOK
IN THE LIBRARY.( LAUGHTER )
HE MANIFESTO’d ON:( IN CREEPY ANONYMOUS VOICE )
“YOUR LIBERAL ANGST GIVES ME GREAT PLEASURE.” YOU’RE NOT CREATING LIBERAL
ANGST. YOU’RE JUST MAKING THE
LIBRARIAN’S JOB HARDER. IN THE RANKING OF LIBRARY
VILLAINS, YOU’RE JUST BELOW THE TODDLER POOPING IN THE PUPPET
NOOK. SO LET’S GET TO THE HEAT OF THE
MEAT HERE? WHICH BOOKS ARE BEING HIDDEN? “THE NEW YORK TIMES” ARTICLE
SPECIFICALLY MENTIONS “FIRE AND FURY,” “SHADE: A TALE OF TWO
PRESIDENTS,” AND “THE LATE SHOW” BOOK “WHOSE BOAT IS THIS BOAT?”
OH, NO! OH, NO! OH, COME ON! OH, DAMN! YA DONE MESSED UP, BOOKY BOY. FIRST OF ALL, MAY I POINT OUT,
OUR BOOK IS NOT ANTI-TRUMP. EVERY SINGLE WORD IN THERE IS
WHAT YOUR FAVORITE PRESIDENT SAID TO HURRICANE SURVIVORS. AND, ALSO, THANKS TO OUR
PUBLISHER SIMON & SCHUSTER, ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE PURCHASE OF
WE HAVE A COPY RIGHT HERE– GO TO WORLD CENTRAL KITCHEN AND
THEIR WORK TO FEED SURVIVORS OF NATURAL DISASTERS. SO, IF PEOPLE CAN’T FIND IT IN
THE LIBRARY, THEY’LL HAVE TO GO BUY IT, WHICH MEANS MORE MONEY
GOES TO CHARITY. SO WHILE I AM STILL VERY ANGRY,
THANK YOU! BUT NO ONE–
( APPLAUSE )
THANK YOU, CITIZEN. I DON’T BELIEVE ANYONE SHOULD
MESS WITH LIBRARY BOOKS. SO WE HAVE DECIDED TO HELP OUT
THE READERS OF COUER D’ALENE BY SENDING THEM AN UNHIDE-ABLE
EDITION OF “WHOSE BOAT IS THIS BOAT?”

  1. It wasnt clear who trump was until about 6 months after the russian-rigged election but then the malignant pathology inadequacy and incoherent low-IQ belligerence became abundantly manifest. Trump has shown several important things- firstly we need definite constraints on presidential unrestricted prerogative starting with a complete rewrite of the emergency powers act, stipulating in law that the president is subject to all laws and conventions and subject to immediate criminal investigation by a grand jury if anything but very minor transgressions occur; secondly the entire process of candidate qualification must be changed to include filing of all financial records and tax returns, all academic and service records, and yes all medical records ( Americans need to know who the hell is the POS in the WH) also every candidate should be required to take a formal robust preparation course with required independent report writing so we can be assured that candidates are knowledgeable about structure process and strategy of the agencies they will be responsible for furthermore grades and papers in such courses must be made public. Nothing new here : transparency, accountability and safeguard restrains, and appropriate training and preparation. Lets enter the 21st Century shall we, lets apply to the presidency what makes common sense and will help protect us from further pathological dimwitted incompetents into the future. And yes i'm a pre-trump republican but have complete disregard for this viscious misfit and his cohort of conniving grifted financial criminals like Mnuchin and Ross and the laughable bumbling ass kissing fool Kudlow.

  2. This is an interesting case. Only a Trump supporter would mess with anything anti-Trump. But they never step foot in a place of knowledge. They’ll burn faster than a sinner in church.

    Or in other words, a Trump supporter in a library.

  3. Actually, hiding those books means random people may come across new ideas/books that spark curiosity, and perhaps then check out books they would have otherwise completely ignored (via not travelling to that section of the 'bary)… 🤔 🤫 dont tell him this, though

  4. I think the number of suspects would be fairly limited. Few of his supporters know how to read, let alone would be seen dead visiting a library.

  5. Bravo Stephen Colbert! You just turned that asshole's stupid stunts into way more book sales and donations. Love it!!!!

  6. Can't remember the name, but one author has donated 10 books to the library that might be considered anti-Trump. But they will be hidden around the library so people find them accidentally. This could cause strokes and heart attacks among Trump supporters, but oh well, that's life.

  7. So someone who appreciates Trump hides a book of actual quotes of him? Why? Is he under the impression that reading things he has actually said will lead someone not to appreciate him?

  8. Common sir u should send all house holds in that electoral district. A copy so u can make a difference. Regards HBO

  9. Of the infinite options you could choose to protest against Democrats and basically anyone who disagrees with trump, your troll of choice is putting library books in the wrong place… are you seriously thinking anyone cares? Lmao

  10. How to make an Anti-Trump Meme:
    On a picture of Trump, really any one will do
    Add a quote of Trump's, whichever suits your theme

  11. Colbert and co should volunteer to stand guard in the library for a day armed with nerf guns in the style of those like the so called “Minute Men”

  12. The poor librarian at Couer D’Alene (A BEAUTIFUL town BTW) was just hit with dozens of copies of this regular sized book. She sighed and said “I don’t need more books! I need money for a surveillance system.”

    One thing that ALWAYS pissed me off about Sarah Palin is that when she was the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, she tried to fire the librarian and GATHERED UP BOOKS TO BE BURNED! Townspeople stopped her and the librarian refused to step down. And McCain’s campaign thought that Ms. Hitler would make a good VP? Oh lord!

  13. 1:55 To be fair, the sort of idiot who still supports Trump probably thinks the concept of books itself is liberal propaganda

  14. so why wont Dems use the same tactics & hide pro-Trump books the same way?
    in fact why don't they also go online & post fake facts about Trump just like the GOP is doing spreading fake news about the Dems?
    ho wait I forgot the spineless Dems don't have enough brains & self-esteem to have learnt anything from 2016 nevermind :/

  15. My dad is unfortunate in that he does not have the money to live near us, and has to live in a senior housing complex Coeur d'Alene. It has natural beauty in abundance. The people though are a horrorshow of ignorance, racism, and hatred.

  16. TRUMP BLAMES AMBASSADOR YOVANOVITCH FOR WHAT HAPPENED (?) IN SOMALIA”! The moron is insanely single-minded and simple-minded! He is single-minded in his craving to hurt her; learning that she served in Somalia, his simple mind linked her with everything bad (?) that happened there at the time! If wisdom is rated on a scale of 1-10, nobody matches Trump’s wisdom as there is no zero on the scale! Trump may truthfully claim to have “unmatched wisdom”!

  17. LOL, be a red hat Trumper in a library, ow that's sure as hell something you won't see very often unless he is there to cause trouble. A Trumper reading, yeah right.

  18. My wife works at Barnes and noble and she say yeah people will hide the anti trump books. She stays on top of making sure they’re out and in view

  19. Those double-white people of “North Idaho” find those titles scary—as scary as their gay children. Poor kids.
    To those kids—WE care about you and we respect you. And we don’t fear books—we LOVE them! If you need to, just move to a place where you can be fully accepted and live your lives.
    If that’s not possible, then stay and take on the duty of replacing those books faster than they can be destroyed!

  20. That is one hilarious and ridiculous story that Team Colbert has turned around beautifully. So, well done. 👍👍 But it's scary that there are still so many people out there who don't want other people to READ, LEARN or even THINK. No better than Islamic State really….. 😨

  21. When the "theft" rearranges the trump of quotes collection did he/she manage to see how books and reading can be helpful sources of factual information

  22. Right wing rats love to throw their weight around. Sometimes from 30,000 feet, dropping bombs on other people's children.

  23. Yo Trump need to go, my crack cocaine buddie are jonesin, Gangster Rap isn't the same without Obama, My sanctuary city need mo money. We got needle all over a street homeless livin in tent brothers defecatin on the curb, how do i load my gun when when i can't ford da bullets.

  24. All the books should be on the shelf right behind the librarian help desk… they can hand it to the person looking for it… sign to check the book out:)

  25. Just bring some kids into the library and ask them to find the books that don't much. They'll have a great time playing detectives. The kids win and the mysterious criminal looses. Especially when the librarians put the misplaced books on display for people to borrow.  Hah!     :  )

  26. When you want to be a supervillain but your two brain cells have never met: Hide library books to cause "liberal angst".

  27. The most surprising takeaway from this is that there might be Republicans that can actually read. See, there's always hope that, someday, they may actually pay attention to what they are reading and it will change them and make them better Democrats because, inside of every Republican, is a Democrat screaming to get out. Suck it Republicans. LOL

  28. Man, if I was back in my late 20's or early 30's I would have loved to take six weeks off and gone down to Idaho and offered my services for free as library cop. Catching and 'pantsing' library Trumptard and then posting video of it all over social media would definitely repay some of that so-called angst.

  29. Why does Colbert love to frequently say "get to the heat of the meat"? I guess just because they're two words that sound alike apparently like angle of the dangle, cube of the boob according to my expression research.

  30. People who are pro-Trump talk about freedom all the time. So do they not believe in freedom of information or freedom of expression or freedom of speech? They're attempting to take away our freedom by removing books from a library. That's one of our freedoms, duh.

  31. Coeur D Alene, here: This is the real scandal that has us riveted here: https://www.kxly.com/news/what-one-woman-says-the-city-of-coeur-d-alene-did-with-the-unclaimed-money-she-found/1142436579

  32. Really makes no difference whatsoever about voting, who the president, is or what they do. Amazing there are still a few people out there that believe any of this effects anything about their lives.

  33. Conservative reaction to this video: these liptard liberals need to stop it with printing more books. They are making us learn how to read
