Stephen Colbert kicked off his monologue on last night’s Late Show talking about the Oscars and what happened with former Donald Trump aide Sam Nunberg.

Between the Oscars and Sam Nunberg, Stephen Colbert had no shortage of material for last night’s Late Show!

Sunday night, the Oscars took place on television, hosted by late night TV’s Jimmy Kimmel. But according to Colbert in his newest monologue, he didn’t bother watching it, saying he went to a school play instead. Colbert expresses disappointment in how the ladies only won six of the 24 awards. But the good news is that this is the first Oscars without Harvey Weinstein, meaning the “biggest threat there was getting nailed by Armie Hammer’s hot dog cannon,” Colbert jokes. “Which I think is also the plot of Call Me by Your Name.”

After zipping his way through the Oscars, Colbert moves onto the big news of yesterday involving former Donald Trump aide Sam Nunberg. Apparently, Nunberg responded to Robert Mueller’s subpoena for the Russia investigation by announcing his plans to tear it up on Bloomberg TV. “Smart thinking,” Colbert jokes. “Do it on Bloomberg, no witnesses. It’s the perfect crime!”

Colbert then starts taking down Nunberg, responding to actual clips of Nunberg speaking about the subpoena. What’s most interesting is how even Nunberg was forced to admit that Mueller “may” have something on Trump, though he can’t say for sure. And that’s just the beginning of the TV takeover Nunberg did yesterday, with Colbert joking that he incriminated himself on HGTV’s Flip or Flop.
