Stephen Colbert is finally seeing members of the Republican Party concede that President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election

The phrase “better late than never” probably shouldn’t be applied to the transfer of power. Yet that’s the situation the U.S. has found itself in after President Donald Trump and much of the GOP refused to acknowledge his defeat in the 2020 election. But as the Trump’ campaign’s lawsuits continue to fail, Stephen Colbert is finally seeing some Republicans come around.

Key battleground states such as Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania intended to certify the results of the election and confirm that former Vice President Joe Biden is the winner. This comes as President Trump refuses to concede and his legal team led by Rudy Giuliani continues searching for a lifeline that could overturn the results.

And while Giuliani has been largely dismissed or ignored, many Republican lawmakers have yet to acknowledge President-elect Biden’s victory. Stephen Colbert has been among those calling out the GOP for continuing to bend to President Trump even as his days in office are numbered.

Last night on The Late Show, Colbert’s monologue proved there may be some hope that things are finally changing. The late night host ran down a list of Republicans who appear ready to face reality and accept life in a post-President Trump world.

Stephen Colbert still isn’t ready to applaud or praise Republicans who accept reality

There was a time when speaking out against President Trump would be a grave mistake for a Republican. Over the past four years, it has been obvious that many GOP members are afraid of the president’s base turning on them or being the target of a late night Twitter rant.

But those days ended when former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris won the election. Election night and the days after would have been the ideal time to step out from under the shadow of President Trump.

Now it is a case of “too little, too late” in the eyes of Stephen Colbert. The Late Show host isn’t applauding Chris Christie or other Republicans for waiting until almost Thanksgiving to accept what millions of Americans already knew.

There is still one Republican left who needs to face reality, at least publicly. But Stephen Colbert isn’t holding his breath for a concession speech from President Donald Trump.
