Stephen Colbert grilling Oliver Stone about Putin is excruciating to watch

Stephen Colbert grilling Oliver Stone about Putin is excruciating to watch


It shouldn’t be surprising in this current political climate that Oliver Stone’s four-part Showtime series about Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, hasn’t had the warmest of receptions.

Stephen Colbert is more known for his quips, but a meeting with Stone on The Late Show on Monday proved too irresistible for the host. Colbert asked the director if he was “cosying up” to what some would call a dictator.

“You know, you have to be polite because this was a two-year deal, and it was four times, and I was with him numerous times,” Stone explained.

Colbert admittedly hadn’t watched the series yet, but asked Stone what would surprise him about Putin when watching it.

“I think he’s devoted to his country, and I’m amazed at his calmness, his courtesy, he never really said anything bad about anybody,” Stone said. “He’s been through a lot. He’s been insulted and abused … abused in the press and the media,” he said, to which the audience groaned.

“Anything about him negative?” Colbert hit back. “Anything? Or does he have your dog in a cage some place?” What a time we live in.
