Late-Night Comedians React to Trump-Russia Indictments
There’s almost too many hot takes to round up.
Christmas has come early for left-leaning late-night comedians. On Monday after Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former adviser Rick Gates and lower-ranking foreign adviser George Papadopoulos, late-night hosts including Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, Trevor Noah and even apolitical Jimmy Fallon took swipes at the administration.
“The details of what Papadopoulos lied about are Papadopoudamning,” Colbert quipped, after finishing several Trump and Russia-themed “collusion carols. “While working to elect Donald Trump, he repeatedly tried to arrange a meeting between the Trump campaign and Russian government officials. You can’t do that! That’s Don Jr.’s job!”
Fallon focused on Halloween, performing an entire sketch that depicts the Trump presidency as a never-ending horror flick.
