Stephen Colbert Brilliantly Dismantles Trump WH Conspiracy Theories
Donald Trump senior counselor Steve Bannon, along with Conspiracy theorists Alex Jones and Roger Stone are blaming what they call the “Deep State” for the Trump’s administration’s chaos. But, as explained by Colbert, The “Deep State” was inevitable.
“You know who has a bad case of the Mondays this Tuesday?” Stephen Colbert opened Tuesday night. “The Trump administration, because apparently paranoia has seized the Trump White House.”
“I’m surprised,” the “Late Show” host quipped. “I thought Russia was going to seize it.”
White House officials’ Deep State concerns are deeply troubling. For example, staffers’ paranoia has caused them to “stay mum” in meetings, for fear that their comments “could be leaked to the press by foes,” Politico reported.
Initially Colbert thought the Deep State was “what you achieve after doing three bong hits and watching Planet Earth.”
“In fact, it’s a permanent national security apparatus that is pulling the strings behind the scenes,” he explained.
“I think this paranoia is just the frustration every new administration has with Washington, D.C.,” the host concluded. “You went to work for Trump because you wanted to tear down the government. Now you have to deal with it. Now you are the government.”
“It’s like a dog who spent his whole life chasing a car. Now he has to drive the car,” he said. “We’re not happy about it either, by the way. Remember, we’re in the backseat of a car being driven by a dog now.”
