With an employee turnover rate that now exceeds over 50%, the White House is literally holding a job fair to fill spots, and Stephen Colbert finds it funny.

Looking for a job? Go apply at the White House!

Seriously. As Stephen Colbert points out on last night’s Late Show, there is a severe turnover rate for employees in the White House. For whatever reason, and you can draw your own conclusions as to why, but people really can’t stand to be a part of Donald Trump’s White House for long. Astonishingly, the turnover rate has now climbed to 51%. “To put that into perspective, that’s five percent more than his share of the popular vote,” Colbert points out.

Reportedly, however, Trump himself doesn’t care, because he likes to remove any and all barriers which challenge him. “Yes, he hates all barriers: spellcheck, the Constitution, condoms,” Colbert quips. But the vacant jobs puts Trump into a strange place where to find new people to work for him, the White House has been advertising a JOB FAIR for executive positions. “So now we’re staffing the administration the same way J. C. Penney recruits at a community college,” Colbert jokes.

Some more top names from the White House are expected to leave as well. This even includes press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who reportedly has told friends she plans to exit her job by the end of the year. Of course, Sanders has already publicly denied these reports, just as she does everything else. “So she unequivocally denies she’s leaving her job,” Colbert says. “She will be missed.”

I enjoy my time writing on the internet. But an executive job at the White House sounds prestigious. Maybe I ought to attend the job fair? Anyway, for more from Colbert, tune in when The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST on CBS.
