Adam Kwasman: The Latest Arizona Politician to Earn an Appearance on the Colbert Report

Republican congressional candidate Adam Kwasman has become the latest in a long line of Arizona politicians to be the butt of Stephen Colbert's jokes on the Colbert Report.

His appearance results from his confusing of a bus full of kids from the YMCA as a bus full of migrant children getting transported by the federal government. Whoops.

Kwasman, currently a state representative, is running against House Speaker Andy Tobin and businessman Gary Kiehne in the Republican primary for Congressional District 1, a seat that's now occupied by Democratic Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick.

Kwasman joined in on a protest in Oracle in a bid to potentially stop a bus full of migrant children who were to be housed at a local boys' home, in accordance with federal law.

That bus never came, but the kids from the YMCA did, leading to Kwasman talking about seeing the fear in the children's faces (undoubtedly caused by the shouts of anti-immigrant protesters). Kwasman -- surprise, surprise -- is endorsed by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.



As you can see in the video above, most of the segment is dedicated to several aspects of mass hysteria surrounding the Central American children arriving in the country, including Kwasman's statement.

It's probably not a big deal for Kwasman, given Arizona's rich history on such comedy TV news programs. In fact, Kwasman's not even the first Arizona congressional candidate to be featured on the Colbert Report this year. That honor goes to former Republican Scott Fistler, who changed his party affiliation to Democrat and changed his name to Cesar Chavez to run for Congress in a heavily Democratic district.

Hey Adam Kwasman  You and your Racist Idiot life buds should climb Sedona's Bell Rock and wait for aliens too?!


It is an annual event for whacko's like you nut jobs.


Are you a "Patriot" for trying to attack refugee children?


Racist Dip Sticks.

Well, he went and deleted hundreds of nasty comments from his facebook.  Literally hundreds.  Guess it is time for him to pretend nothing happened.  What a moron.

The only kind of running Kwasman.is capable of is after a YMCA school bus. What a fool- and the whole nation got to watch.  Lucy Babeu

AZ politics is, unfortunately, a source of entertainment for the rest of the country.

He just spent 35,000 in ads and Arpaio is endorsing him.  It seems like all the republicans are running on this year is immigration and common core. HA!

Pure Arizona redneckery at its worst.  What a f***ing embarrassment to the state, shame on him and the 2s of people who support him.  People like him are the reason I hate to admit that I actually live in Arizona.

Colbert (and his writers, of course) are outrageously funny and truly capture the essence of the politically ludicrous. I will miss his hilarity when he moves to late night talk.

Meanwhile, Ann Kirkpatrick is giggling and her campaign workers are all having wee bits of libations as they raise a toast to this dweeb for helping with her campaign. This guy is his own worst enemy.

The sad thing is that he is proud of what he has done. He is only sorry about his tweet.

If the bus was from the maryvale ymca, it probably was full of illegal aliens.

LMTDGOV, sure. People of his ilk are all for it until they need help from the govt.

If this guy believes in "LMTDGOV", he can limit it himself by not trying to suck off the taxpayer's teat himself.  


He needs to get a real job - maybe like driving a YMCA bus!

Too damn funny!...

Kwasman sure does have shit all over his face. But I'll tell you. I'm old enough to remember the fear in xenophobes like him and his fellow travelers when they convulsed over a story about 3,000,000 barefooted Africans invading the U.S.

Adam Kwasman.is not sorry, he only said that because he got caught deleting his tweet on polit woops. He can't even stand on he is own hate, he has to tout he has been endorsed from another bigot Sheriff, Joe. What a ass. Lucy Babeu

@LucyBabeu Paul probably set this up so he could get those YMCA campers alone in a cell - heard he was a child molester - would this count?

@LucyBabeu Do you live in AZ, Lucy? Would love to see you have more of a voice outside of this blog.

@phale68993 @LucyBabeu  Hi phale68993, I have been to AZ, and tried to live there in Sept. 2009, but was forced out with threats by Paul and Shaun because I found out from my Dad they had stole all my parents retirement money. And Paul did not want all the dirty family secrets out, especially about him.

My father just died a couple of weeks ago July 3 and I was coming out to stay with my sister Veronica Keating but Judge Shaun Babeu and Paul would not let my sister see my father when he was dying because she was friends with me and then told her they did not want anything to do with her  or her children ever again. Then Shaun sent text messages from his Judges Chambers to her that she could not come to the funeral services or Cemetery if she was coming with me. I did not come. I felt so bad for my sister. Paul hired about 4 police to stop me from entering the funeral services when my sister arrived. It was totally outrageous. Both of my brothers are abusing the power of their positions o threaten me and keep out of the state of AZ to keep their dirty secrets hidden. They need to leave my sister alone. Thanks for your support. Best regards, Lucy Babeu

Oh, and one more thing, Paul's live in Mexican lover Israel (21 years old) was there at my dad's house when he died and at the funeral.

Paul had police officer with gun's too. How crazy was that, and there were only 30 people there beside family.Lucy
