Stephen Colbert mocks memory of Benghazi heroes with ‘Lunghazi’ joke


Stephen Colbert isn’t hosting a late night talk show on CBS; it’s an anti-conservative propaganda machine that runs after the local news and makes occasional jokes.

Take, for instance, what Colbert did to mock those questioning Hillary Clinton’s health. Last week, he trivialized their concerns by referring to her illness as “Lunghazi.” In doing so, he mocked the memory of the American heroes who died in Benghazi. Some may argue that Colbert was merely mocking what he sees as “manufactured outrage,” but make no mistake: he is doing so by mocking the sacrifice and the memory of the men who died at Benghazi.
