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

100 Comments



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?”
COME ON OUT! THERE YOU GO! GOOD LUCK HIDING THIS ONE,
SUCKER! IT’S NOT JUST A PROP. IF YOU CAN HOLD IT. IT’S NOT JUST A PROP. IT’S THE ACTUAL BOOK. IT EVEN HAS A CHECK-OUT LIBRARY
CARD RIGHT THERE. IT’S IT’S THE WHOLE DAMN THING
INSIDE, OKAY. GIVE ME A PEN. I’LL SIGN THAT. THERE YOU GO. THERE YOU GO.( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THERE WE GO RIGHT THERE. AND JUST TO MAKE EXTRA SURE THIS
EDITION CAN’T BE HIDDEN, WE’VE OUTFITTED IT WITH ONE OF THOSE
ANTITHEFT GARMENT TAGS RIGHT DOWN HERE. NOW, IF YOU AT HOME WANT TO HELP
HURRICANE SURVIVORS, BUY A REGULAR-SIZED COPY OF “WHOSE
BOAT IS THIS BOAT?” AND SEND IT TO YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY. WE’VE GOT A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU
TONIGHT. DAVID HARBOUR IS HERE. BUT WHEN WE RETURN, DO WE NEED
MORE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES? STICK AROUND TO FIND OUT! THE ANSWER IS NO.

    Ratings disappearing from late night show….

  3. dem says:

    Frequent patron of that library. Thank you, Stephen.

  4. Jada says:

    Do you have new joke writers? Bad news, far from funny!

  5. Averill Dalton says:

    4:20 ….. realy ?

    Stadtteilbibliothek Britz Süd
    Gutschmidtstraße 33/35
    12359 Berlin
    Germany

    I wait eagerly for it !

  6. Kyle Coffland says:

    As someone from (southern) Idaho, I can confirm two things. One, most people say "there must be more" when they see southern Idaho, it's basically sage brush from one end to the other. Second, this is basically in character for Idaho. The state's about as red as they come, and Coeur D'Alene is about as bad as it gets (as in neo-nazi compounds bad). About the only left-ish leaning towns in the state are Pocatello in the south and Moscow in the north (I've actually lived in both). Not coincidentally, two of the state's three universities are in those towns.

    This has been your bi-annual reminder that Idaho exists.

  7. verithanam studios says:

    Who noticed d stamp Unhideable edition😂

  8. Rusky Petrovsky says:

    Well Idaho has at least some respect for a President,, But he should not fear becsuse no Democrate has an ounce of brains to read, They just listen to the garbage from deep state media like this.

  9. Matthew Blum says:

    lol

  10. Lawrence D’Oliveiro says:

    1:58 Maybe the wanker thinks “liberal” is an adjective for “librarian” …

  11. Lawrence D’Oliveiro says:

    2:44 So, a completely factual book?! Of course that’s anti-Trump! Don’t you know reality has an anti-Trump bias?!?

  12. EK OConnor says:

    This happens at the local Barnes and Noble, too. I find anti-trump books shoved in weird places (like art history and science book areas that I frequent), I take them to customer service.

  13. Spiritdove says:

    do they still use checkout cards?

  14. Akra Seil says:

    So . . . someone associated with DJT is a criminal???? Whoda thunkit? Must be fake news.

  15. Taylor Star says:

    I don't usually watch this show but loved this episode! Good job, Stephen!

  16. Colin McIntosh says:

    I once did that same thing in my computer apps class in highschool. Over the course of a few weeks my friend and I hid the text books we used for class in various places throughout the classroom. Our teacher decided that we (the class) weren't responsible enough to use them and since we needed them for class we just didn't have class for two weeks.

  17. Cheeseatingjunlista says:

    Hiding in obscure place….could get a whole library up the Orange Fat Bastards Ass, only prob is he'd like it

  18. Leo says:

    This sounds like your average Trump supporter .

  19. Nameless One Wanderland says:

    fake news trump stole books to read them.

  20. Leo says:

    The alt. right news sources have tought him well , go & punish the evil Liberals & your life will be complete !

  21. Pamela Mitchell says:

    This guy is so ignorant. Whoever he is proves he is a moron who probably can't read. Pity the poor thing.

  22. Chris Sanders says:

    Im from Idaho. Trump blows.

  23. Alkor276 says:

    I live in that area, and I must say: THANK YOU!!!!! You pronounced the city properly!!! I've met people who live here and can't figure out how to pronounce Coeur d' Alene. I'd even be willing to bet the book hider is one of 'em. Also, thank you so much for the book. I'm going to be keeping an eye out at the library for it, and I'll be sure to make sure it stays right where it's supposed to!

  24. Stingjay 4000 says:

    Any regular Joe schmoe holding that
    big ass book is akin to tRump holding a normal size book.
    (you know, because of his tiny hands)😏

  25. Robert Rudi says:

    Never thought I'd see my town library on the Late Show. Gonna have to go check out Whose Boat Is This Boat. Can't hide it if I'm reading it. Looking forward to the Unhideable Edition.

  26. alice margereta says:

    Real ETID fan, that Colbert

  27. Andrew Owens says:

    This idiot really honestly thinks he's winning some sort of battle against liberals. He's a sad pathetic loser who can't defend Trump on his merits so he thinks that by hiding books that criticize Trump he's somehow sticking it to the liberals. Like he's some sort of James Bond villain with intricate plans that are destroying everything that liberals stand for.

    When in actuality he's just some dumbass who thinks he's getting his kicks from being an ass. Then again, that's exactly how Trump is so I suppose he's emulating Trump well enough.

  28. ddis29 says:

    man, it's almost like a bunch of nazi sympathizers live in idaho or something

  29. Lily says:

    A worthy reason to visit Couer de Alene!..

  30. Sammie1053 says:

    Oh man, Coeur d'Alene?
    My family passed through there once on a road trip… Pretty spot. When we got where we were going we told someone about it and his immediate response was "you guys had a delightful lunch in the white supremacist capital of the Pacific Northwest."
    Needless to say this story is not a surprise.

  31. crocusflower says:

    Somebody should donate stacks of the other books & have them set up in front of the librarians desk. Teach his creepass to mess with library books. These are the mental & tolerance level of other people's views losers trump attracks

  32. d h says:

    Wow. Weird has been coming out of the woodwork for quite some time, but out of a Library? His hiding books has really backfired. He's just brought more attention to the very books he's trying to hide. Also, I looked this up because I think what he's doing is possibly a crime:  "The First Amendment protects the freedom to read. Everyone is entitled to express their opinions about a book, but they don't have the right to limit another person's access to information." The ability to read anything you want is everywhere. Amazon you can buy audio books, Kindle or buy it online and have it mailed to your house. Bookstores, Half Price Books, family member gives you a book, gifts you one for Christmas. Shall I go on? There will (unfortunately) always be people like this who show up like this. Personally just put in cameras and catch him. Ban him from the library. Wow…..

  33. J Hill says:

    May this "criminal" actually be below a pooping toddler.

  34. 7dragonhunter says:

    Fake news idaho doesn't have libraries.

  35. IK Rico says:

    A facist result is when books disappear.

  36. Andrew Smith says:

    What's the status of Obama Avenue btw? I love how we troll on the left. 😆

  37. vinifari 2300 says:

    😂😂😂😂 #maga

  38. marzsit says:

    coeur d'alene is like east germany, with spokane being west germany without a wall. hayden lake, just north of coeur d'alene used to be the home of the neo-nazis and lots of real nazis still live and breed in that area. idaho is a state i avoid, i never travel through idaho because i never want to spend any money there, it's a racist hell on earth.

  39. Fangirl Trash says:

    Yeah all of idaho is like this. It's why I've moved to Virginia

  40. yesica gonzalez says:

    I'm going to Idaho to steal a book

  41. PointsofData says:

    Is the thumbnail a fucking Morrowind reference

  42. Leonard Taylor says:

    That was awsome , but you did it again . Your shows just are not the same when you do not mock the way Trump talks .

  43. WolfgangLMclain says:

    Quick question: has he tried reading them?

  44. Ivy says:

    Trump supporters can't read so we know it's not them.

  45. Zafri Zulfi says:

    Whose boat is this boat …..hahahahah

  46. Ivy says:

    Anti- trump doesn't mean he didn't say those things, it's just EVERYONE EXCEPT trump followers misunderstands what he says. It's our fault for thinking "grab em by the pussy" Is a bad thing. It's our fault for thinking trumps a racist. It's our fault for thinking trump's a sexist pig just because the things he says is what a sexist, racist rapist pig says. He only wants to grab women by the pussy nicely 😏 Remember calling a lie what it is, is actually a deflection tactic by the leftist demonrat snowflakes. magaTs call those alternative facts.

  47. Antivanquishable Omnitriumphant says:

    certain individuals grew up realizing that there are words and then there are power words. Power words give the undeniable illusion of supreme intelligence. words like angst. that being said, it doesnt matter how intelligent you are any more, it only matters what words you choose to use.

  48. Rae Lynn says:

    Thank you for doing your part in combating the @$$hats of world

  49. Éamonn Síoċáin says:

    Most of many a dissertation is just a title.

  50. fieldagent59 is in the forest says:

    Colbert sold his soul for ratings along time ago……………….waiting for the day when he apologizes on air, for being completely wrong about the President..

  51. Rabid Fanboy says:

    Typical Trumptard. And the MAGAtards wonder why normal, intelligent, well adjusted people look down on them and laugh at them. Sad pathetic losers.

  52. Chris William says:

    15 years ago

  53. daniel job says:

    Why do I get the feeling that Mike Pence is watching the impeachment proceedings wearing a black hooded robe and rubbing his hands saying: "Good – goood!"
    Sheep need a Shepard, dumb sheep get a Wolf.

  54. Onion Sandwich says:

    For a second there, I thought the studio assistant forgot to go back. Phew !

  55. Jotta H. says:

    Trumpanzees putting their idiocy on display is so tasty.
    "Liberal angst", LMAO!

  56. Serai3 says:

    Dumbass pathetic loser snowflake can't stand the idea that anyone disagrees with him so he pulls dumb kindergarten bullshit. Really, wingnut? Hiding books? That's all you got? Such sad little weenies.

  57. J. A T says:

    This guy hasn't been introduced to something like "the worldwide internet" try and hind that. People still goes to libraries? Huh

  58. Ayayona LittleEagle says:

    This Old First Nation's Native American's most humble opinion is we need another civil war …. Time to shoot every single Democrat and Liberal and Progressive and Socialist in the face and then dump them in the sewer''s where they belong just my most humble opinion and freedom of speech …..

  59. Justice Betancourt says:

    I don't think Idaho is so "Trump" anymore. Hey Colon, I hope that's not you hiding books in the library!

  60. Koolaid Laid says:

    Just like a Trump supporter.. They just don't think things through..

  61. Chidi Godwin Chinewubeze says:

    I LOVE YOU, STEPHEN!!! YOU ARE THE VERY BEST!!!

  62. E Z says:

    This Trump bit seems endless – next joke please!

  63. antonio volpe says:

    northern Idaho sounds like a fun place. Chief Joseph

  64. Ned Thumberland says:

    That shows how "classy" the so-called "Trump voters" are. The adjective should be "vile" and "shameless."

  65. Guy H. says:

    The radical idiots up in N. Idaho are nuts! They think that "liberals" are going to destroy the U.S. but its their idiotic ideas, if allowed to do them, that would be the downfall of us. Just look at our current Whitehouse Administration. Who is actually benefiting from all the deals being made? It sure as hell isn't us, the small guys & gals that's for sure!

  66. Armored Chief says:

    Trump supporters are the biggest idiots on earth

  67. Nashwa h says:

    Hilarious. I'm going to get this Book ; by hook or by crook

  68. lovemoviesful2 says:

    So this is what snowflake conservatives goes to a library for.

  69. Dan Ferguson says:

    Lies are the same whether they are spoken or written. Burn anti Trump/marxist globalist propaganda books.

  70. ChisrsGardener says:

    the nazis learned the angst when americans detected their bs ideology.

  71. WieMisstManEigentlichArmlängen says:

    i seriousli dont like this show host. He is super arrogant. Whi does it alwais show in mi recommended? Greetings from Deutschland

  72. Eroraf86 says:

    I wonder if the moron who pulled this stunt realizes he’s just making the rest of us look bad. Full disclosure, I voted for Trump, and I am neither his biggest fan nor his worst critic. But who screws with an innocent library? You want deplorable? This booknapper right here. Jerk.

  73. The Stern Dragoon says:

    Wait…..a Trumpanzee actually entered a LIBRARY?? Is this Candid Camera or something?

  74. Jeremy Miller says:

    Just like the retired resident that stole my fun size 💯 grand 🍬 bar sitting next to my coffee. You saved me from diabetes, so…. Thanks?

  75. Mr. Thomas says:

    Well at least they grow great potatoes!

  76. The Mad Librarian says:

    One of the routine tasks performed in libraries is "reading" shelves to check that books are in the correct category and place within that category.

  77. tom quigley says:

    Brilliant every time. Johnny Carson was good – this might be better.

  78. Amanda Johnson says:

    Oh no! They're pettiness has lead to mild inconvenience and slight annoyance. Whatever shall the good people of Coeur D'Alene, Idaho do? Spend a slightly longer time looking for a book? Have the librarians start keeping the copies on display at the desk? Buy it?

  79. BeLight says:

    Omg we made the show. People are racist and stupid as fuck around these parts.

  80. Ricky O says:

    Beautifully done 👌

  81. Porcupine Logic says:

    Knock knock

  82. Azem Cancarevic says:

    I wish that guy made an comment on this video to explane his stupid move.

  83. Dave Messer says:

    I want an unhideable edition.

  84. Lea Chase-Haller says:

    I have a copy of "Whose Boat Is This Boat?". My son bought it through a Charter School he works for…..lol … I laughed so hard when I read it.

  85. BearAxeBear says:

    Donald Trump is like a sink hole in the swamp, he attracts all the worst people around him to sink with him.

  86. Jade says:

    Is the big edition available for purchase 😂

  87. ChequeWriter says:

    He has shark eyes!

  88. Malcolm sargeant says:

    Why don’t to put that big book up for auction, proceeds to the charity of course many get a few more autographs as well.

  89. CM M says:

    Trump  supporters banning  anti  Tramp books? This  is  Nazi Germany  all over  but then  that  is  Tramp's MO He  loves  dicKtaters and  will  continue to  move along Hitler's  way of  taking over  the  country.. He has  no  intention of  giving  up  the presidency and  will  resort  to  violence soon.

  90. Ben Dover says:

    It must be the Russians, right?

  91. David miorgan says:

    The name of this show should the hate show! More Communist than the Communists, more Jewish than Jewish, that should be their propaganda motto!

  92. Tony C says:

    Without fail, the people who think they are "triggering the snowflakes" are going through their lives like hurt little children.

  93. houseofflyingdaggers says:

    I know I'm about to start my period any day now, but when he brought out that giant book I started to cry with pure joy! Love will always overcome hatred.

  94. Just Sayin' says:

    How does an anti theft garment tag keep the book from being hidden in the library?

  95. MrMferg240 says:

    my 15 year old daughter who tends to lean liberal was astonished when I told her to read DINESH D'SOUZA'S book  ''THE BIG LIE''. she did. now she understands a lot more about liberal tactics like the one's playing out in the impeachment hearings.she is asking a lot of thought provoking questions about democrats and they're history of racism and hypocrisy.

  96. Susie, the World's Greatest Expert on Everything says:

    Brilliant. As always.

  97. albino shamrock says:

    It's unfortunate to see my home state on TV. Nearly every time Idaho makes headlines, it's about Trump supporters, Catholic child molesters, or a teacher who fed a puppy to a turtle.

  98. Some Canine says:

    Silly guy, if he didn't want anyone to read those books he could have just left them on the shelf.

  99. Sean Dools says:

    Guess what TDS support group…TRUMP 2020!
