President Donald Trump was reportedly blamed on “people against” last week for serious violence in a US government agency run by his own supporters. So “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert attended the fact check on Tuesday night.
“What are you talking about?” Colbert asked, adding:
“You invited those rioters to your rally in Washington. They wear your shirts, your hats, your flags. And they cheer you up when you tell them to march in the city hall. ”
Colbert said future neuroscientists would capture footage from the uprising, showing Trump supporters wearing Trump gear and waving a Trump flag, then asking them to name the person in the picture.
“And if they don̵7;t say ‘They’re MAGAs.’ You know it’s time to get the keys, ”he said.
Colbert also played a clip from a news conference by Steven D’Antuono, the FBI’s assistant director of field office in Washington, describing the arrest and investigation so far. “It’s just the tip of the iceberg,” Colbert called that a metaphor.
“The MAGA crowd has a lot in common with the iceberg: cool, white, and when the heat they melt before their eyes,” he said.
