Fox News host and colossal idiot Howard Kurtz has a problem, and it’s Stephen Colbert! Recently, Colbert mocked Kurtz’ bombshell report on Hillary Clinton. Apparently, according to Kurtz, Hillary Clinton is old.
Kurtz, for some reason, seems to feel that Clinton–as a woman–is far too elderly to even consider a Presidential run. “If Hillary Clinton is the Democratic candidate for president, she’ll turn 69 just before the election,”Kurtz stated in a clip Colbert played on the show. Colbert responded, “She’s going to be almost as old as Ronald Reagan was! But remember, those were man years. Men age gracefully, like Robert Redford or a nice leather wallet.”
On Sunday, Kurtz’ Media Buzz show became a platform from which he launched his counter-offensive. “I asked whether it was fair for commentators to harp on her age!” Kurtz shouted. “I guess that was too nuanced for your black-and-white view of the world.”
He accused Colbert of having the same standards as a FOX host: “So, look, even fake anchors should have standards,” Kurtz whined. “You, sir, were not even truthy.”
Kurtz then revealed the real reason he was pretending that he did not deserve criticism for his comments: he wants to be on Colbert’s show! “And if you want to invite me on your show to talk about it…”
