Stephen Colbert warns against messing with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and questions President Donald Trump’s impeachment strategy.
Emotions have been running high in Washington, D.C. as the impeachment inquiry continues to twist and turn. But none of those emotions include hatred according to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Her press conference announcing the drafting of impeachment articles became tense but Stephen Colbert has Speaker Pelosi’s back.
Speaker Pelosi’s announcement marked an event long predicted by late night comedians like Stephen Colbert. And while it didn’t happen quite as soon as he had hoped, Colbert appeared content with the latest development.
Near the conclusion of her press conference, Speaker Pelosi was asked by a reporter if she hated President Donald Trump. That questioned turned out to be a mistake as the Speaker took offense to the idea that she could hate anyone considering she was raised in a Catholic household.
Stephen Colbert was ready to defend Speaker Pelosi as a fellow Catholic, albeit in a tongue-in-cheek style typical of the Late Show host. Colbert reiterated Speaker’s Pelosi’s warning not to mess with her.
Colbert was a little less eager to come to the defense of President Donald Trump. Watch as Colbert is more than willing to see President Trump’s impeachment demands met.
Anyone who thought that Nancy Pelosi hated Donald Trump could be forgiven. After all, the President has repeatedly attacked the Speaker of the House on Twitter. The two have had multiple standoffs in the past with both sides claiming to have the upper hand on the other.
Stephen Colbert could also be accused of hating President Trump but it is clear that Colbert loves mocking the President. Trump’s inability to keep straight his “drain the swamp” catchphrase especially amused Colbert.
President Trump got his wish and it looks like his impeachment is moving ahead at full stream. The wish is also shared by Colbert who no doubt was happy to hear President Trump wanted things to get moving as soon as possible. For someone who treated the public hearings like a holiday, Colbert must be eager for his own comedy Christmas to arrive.
