The public is learning more about the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s resort in Florida. Among the developments is an insight into Trump’s mindset, with the former president reportedly worried about “rats.” Stephen Colbert broke it all down in his monologue.
According to reports, the Department of Justice signed off on the search warrant executed at Mar-a-Lago just days ago. Trump allegedly had boxes of classified information that he failed to return to the government after leaving the White House.
A Rolling Stone story suggests that the raid has left Donald Trump paranoid about a potential rat…or rats. He’s reportedly gone so far as to ask who in his inner circle is wearing a wire. Authorities likely learned about the location of the classified documents through an informant.
Stephen Colbert shared his thoughts on Trump’s possible rat concerns. The Late Show host also broke down the conspiracy theories floating around to defend the former president.
Stephen Colbert says only criminals worry about rats
Stephen Colbert’s monologue made sure to deliver punchlines about the MAGA crowd, Donald Trump, Jr., and even the Mar-a-Lago waffle bar before turning the spotlight on former President Donald Trump.
In response to reports Trump worries about someone wearing a wire, Colbert reminds his audience that “good people don’t worry their friends are ratting them out over all the good stuff that they’re doing.”
Colbert further broke down Trump’s response, recapping how the story has changed from “nothing to see here” to “anything you see here was planted by the FBI.” The Late Show put together a montage of pro-Trump media personalities, politicians, and inner circle members suggesting that evidence could be planted in the boxes recovered from Mar-a-Lago.
Again, Colbert points out that the Trump world is telling on itself. The comedian counters the conspiracy theory with “you know when you accuse someone of planting evidence before they say they found anything? It’s when you know they’re going to find something.”
