Even when the FBI began making large-scale arrests of illegal thieves who attacked the US Capitol last week, Stephen Colbert asked, “Do you know who doesn’t take terrorism seriously at all? The president. “
During his Late show In a monologue on Tuesday night, the host focused on a new report that President Trump had blamed the antifa rebellion in a conversation with House of Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy this week.
“What the hell are you talking about ?!” exclaimed Colbert. “You have invited these riots to your rally in Washington. They wore your shirts, your hats, waved your flag! And they cheered when you told them to march on the Capitol. From now on, neurologists will take similar pictures to stroke the victims and say, “Can you tell me whose supporters they are?”
The “apology for the antifa” was “so ridiculous,” the host said, that “even Kevin McCarthy’s normally cleared spine” repelled the president. “To find out so late in the game that Kevin McCarthy has the ability to name reality in the face of the president’s lies is like finding out that Tom Hanks in I reject I had a boat all the time! “
As for the next thing, Colbert didn’t have much hope that enough Republicans would be willing to vote to remove Trump from office last week. “Republicans desperately need the president’s supporters to please them,” he said. “I mean, their hands are tied – almost literally.”
And in response to Republicans, who are now calling for “unity” after supporting efforts to undo the election results, he is not holding back. “Okay, let’s unite by punishing all the rebels and their political leaders who legitimized their murderous fantasies,” he said. “There can be no cure until the disease is identified and eliminated, and you can do it now!” The tumor lost its Twitter feed! “
Now that Democrats are taking action to stop this from happening again by “getting rid of the man who caused it,” Colbert asked Republicans, “What are you willing to do to help?” Because you haven’t done anything so far! “
“They were just certifying free and fair elections – elections that you knew were free and fair – but you still lied about it,” he continued. “Because you wanted money in the campaign and the eyeballs, and you were afraid to drive your boss and his MAGA monster crazy!”
“Your lies legitimized the fantasies of a violent, anti-democratic mob that nearly killed you and your colleagues and killed a police officer,” Colbert said. “Now you want to use your hollow calls for unity to sweep everything under the rug?” Well, good luck with that, brother, because the riots also got on your carpets. “
