Colbert mocks Republicans’ ‘desperate’ new impeachment defense strategy

Stephen Colbert summed up an additional weekend in the Trump era on Monday Night’sLate Present, and it however isn’t really receiving any less strange.

Concerning the president formally leaving New York Town (for tax good reasons) andTitanic-groping a baseball participant at the White Property as many thanks for donning a MAGA hat, it is been an exciting handful of times. Then, of program, there is the impeachment hottest.

In the experience of Dwelling Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff releasing transcripts of the inquiry testimony, which the GOP had been decrying as “secretive,” Colbert points out that some Trump defenders are thinking they may well change to a new tactic: admitting that theremay wellhave been a quid professional quo, then just attempting to downplay the detrimental spin.

“That is correct: Republicans are so desperate, they’re considering telling the real truth,” Colbert sums up.
