Stephen Colbert breaks down Trumpcare on Late Show


The Late Show with Stephen Colbert broke down the Republicans’ new health care plan, which is not surprisingly being called “Trumpcare”.

It is a big week for Republicans across the country as they prepare to pass a replacement for the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare”. Of course, a large number of late night talk shows are talking about this replacement, including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

During Tuesday night’s episode of The Late Show, Stephen Colbert started his opening monologue by talking about the replacement for the ACA, which some people are calling “Trumpcare”. The late night talk show host described it as one ambulance really hating another ambulance, pulling the patient out of the other ambulance and putting them in one that’s still in the process of being built.

While talking about Trumpcare, Colbert got a surprise appearance from Death, who he started to have a dance party with. You can watch the entire opening monologue from Tuesday night’s episode of The Late Show in the YouTube video below.

The replacement for Obamacare wasn’t the only thing that Colbert talked about in the opening monologue. He also talked about the recent documents released by WikiLeaks regarding the CIA, which reportedly is recording conversations using Samsung smart TVs. That’s bad news for Colbert, because that means the CIA could have hundreds of hours of him looking for the remote.
