Stephen Colbert Skewers The Right Wing For Their Fearmongering On Ebola

Stephen Colbert took the flame-throwing, fear-mongering right wing pundits (who have their hair on fire over the Ebola outbreak) to task --as only he can.

Stephen Colbert took apart everyone from Joe Scarborough, to the talking heads over at Faux "news" and one of their regulars, "serial misinformer" Besty McCaughey for their over the top fear mongering on how the Ebola virus is going to kill us all and we shouldn't trust anything the CDC or government tell us when it comes to the potential spread of the virus in the United States.

I think my favorite part was watching him take apart raving lunatic wingnut Jeanine Pirro who went off the rails again this weekend, screaming about the Obama administration minimizing the danger from the virus.

Stephen played a portion of Pirro's screed:

White House spokesman Josh Earnest says that screening procedures are in place at our border and people are screened as soon as they get here.

Really? You're kidding, right? What's that? You're saying that because you don't want people to panic?

You don't want us to panic - how about I don't want us to die!

And then let her have it...

COLBERT: Yeah! Yeah! Obama wants you to line up for a calm and orderly death!

What's that? What's that you're saying? This is my deaf ear... and nobody's talking? Then why am I hearing voices? Is that because of Ebola?

What's that? It's an unrelated mental disorder? Alright then. As long as I don't catch whatever paralyzed her eyebrows.

Colbert wrapped things up by taking on wingnut former SC GOP director Todd Kincannon and his solution to the crisis... just execute anyone who comes in contact with the virus.
