Late night host Stephen Colbert was blasted on social media after he seemed to openly mock normal Americans’ concerns about skyrocketing gas prices.

As The Daily Wire reports:


On Monday, in the face of rising gas prices that may well devastate American consumers, “Late Night” host Stephen Colbert pontificated from his elitist perch, “Today, the average gas price in America hit an all-time record high of over $4/gallon. OK, that stings, but a clean conscience is worth a buck or two. It’s important. I’m willing to pay $4/gallon. Hell, I’ll pay $15 a gallon b/c I drive a Tesla.”

Colbert’s contempt for rural America was demonstrated as far back as May 2019; the cold open for his show opened by mocking farmers, intimating that if their finances were hurt by President Trump’s tariffs targeting China, those country-dumb bumpkins would lose their wives to convicts, start stripping for a living, become alcoholics, and soon make a living growing marijuana.
The show began by playing a clip from a CNN report that claimed President Trump’s “trade war [is] having a major impact on American farmers after talks with China have halted. Some farmers seem to be losing hope.” CNN then played a clip of a farmer who said he had voted for Trump in 2016 but would not do so again.
The clip circulated the same day that Texas Senator Ted Cruz blasted Transportation Secretary Peter Buttigieg for expressing similar sentiments:
