Stephen Colbert has a brilliant explanation of why Donald Trump fired James Comey
The big news everyone is talking about is Donald Trump firing FBI director James Comey.
It happened just 10 minutes before Stephen Colbert taped The Late Show, but the late night host had plenty of rounds to fire.
“That shows no gratitude at all. Did Trump forget about the Hillary emails that Comey talked about?” Colbert said.
Trump said in a letter that Comey was “not able to effectively lead the Bureau” after the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, but Colbert thinks he has a more plausible explanation.
“I think he was fired because Comey couldn’t guess the name Rumpelstiltskin,” he joked.
He also poked fun at Trump’s letter to Comey which highlighted that the ex FBI director had told him that he wasn’t under investigation.
“Does everything have to be about him?” Colbert said and then imitating Trump:
“‘While I greatly appreciate you telling me that I am an amazing lover, I am leaving you for a younger woman on the advice of the Department of Justice.’”
