We are saying this shortly after Donald Trump entered the White House briefing room and tried to poison American democracy. “That’s why I’m not sitting still. I don’t think so now. So I am also ready for the funeral. Because tonight Donald Trump tried a lot to kill something. “

Over the next several minutes, Colbert decided to recite jokes in favor of both Sobers and comment about the president’s falsified speech Thursday night about the 2020 election.

“Just redundant stuff about illegal vote dumps and corrupt election officials and secret Democratic counting cabals and, I don’t know, long birth certificates, maybe. It is all the same, ”he said. “And if you didn’t know that Joe Biden was getting close to 270, Donald Trump provided you with all the evidence you’ll ever need.”
