Stephen Colbert Pans Republican National Convention: It Looked Like a ‘Racist Spelling Bee’

Some media personalities are giving Republican National Convention (RNC) good marks for its production quality.

However, late-night host Stephen Colbert says the lack of diversity in location and the decision to feature most of the remarks in one location is a bad move.

“One big problem is that Trump and the G.O.P. were in Covid denial for months. The Democrats actually looked ahead, made time to produce something for their convention, four pretty smooth nights. The Republicans had to cram at the last minute,” he said on Tuesday night.

“Since they had no time to prep, instead of cool videos and location shoots, the RNC was mostly a single location with speakers taking turns at the podium,” Colbert added. “The evening looked like a racist spelling bee. ‘Can I have the words ‘language of origin’ and then have the word ‘arrested by ICE?'”

Watch the video below:

Colbert continued to mock several of the speakers who addressed the convention.

While Colbert made several jokes about the participants, the convention has featured several Black supporters of President Donald Trump to showcase the party’s diversity and refute allegations of racism that have been level against the president. 

Both the Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention have been largely virtual due to safety concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced months ahead of time that the convention would largely be virtual and hired Emmy-winning producers for the show.

Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee (RNC) was reportedly rushing to plan and produce the convention after the in-person gathering scheduled to take place in Jacksonville, Florida, was scrapped late last month due to public health concerns. 

The Republican convention continues on Wednesday.

  1. If one wants to see proper diversity on TV or anywhere else, they should put only 80% white basketball players on the courts, 80% white football players on the field, etc. That would better represent the national color mix in sports. That’s how it started with black athletes. Then only allow .1% of actors/actresses who are gay to perform, limit time of black, Asian, etc. shows to represent the “mix” of the ethnic/color spectrum. Remove all color identifiers and discriminating bands like the Black Causcus in government, NAACP, BLM, etc. Dismantle all color or ethnic organizations and stop appointing people because of color/ethnic identifies. Then we would have balance in our system. Isn’t that what the Demoncrats seem to want? Choosing people to do a job because they are qualified does not apply anymore. You must hire/appoint/present a black/brown/queer/purple or other sub-group and allow them to organize by their standards. But, don’t be white and try that. You will be shut down immediately.

  2. PS
    Only tuned in to the DNC for a few minutes. If that was produced by
    Emmy-winning producers for the show they paid too much. Unless,of course, a hate fest is what they were hoping to produce. Getting Hollywood types to attempt humor didn’t work.

  3. Hey Steven Colbert. Here’s some fodder for your next comedy skit.
    “When Joe Biden ran for President in the 1988 presidential cycle, he was caught lying about his academic record by Newsweek magazine. He confidently and falsely told voters in New Hampshire that he graduated at the top of his class, he earned three degrees, he won outstanding student in the political science department, and that he went to law school on a full academic scholarship. Biden actually earned only one degree (not three), he went to school on a half scholarship (not a full one), he was not named outstanding student at the political science department, and he actually near the bottom of his class.”
    And here I thought this was just more Republican propaganda. Who knew!!
