On Wednesday, The Late Show host Stephen Colbert skewered President Donald Trump’s baffling allegation that he saved a supporter’s marriage by making his 401k go up, turning the anecdote into a truly terrible Trump 2020 ad.
Colbert started by examining how Trump is coping now that articles of impeachment have been brought against him.
“With impeachment closing in, last night Trump went to his happy place — anger,” said Colbert, referring to Trump’s characteristically bizarre Pennsylvania rally.
In an effort to minimize the rather serious accusations brought against him, Trump dismissed the number of charges against him as “impeachment light” and nothing to be concerned about.
“Yes, it’s impeachment light,” said Colbert. “America’s going on a diet — we’ve gotta lose 239 pounds of dead weight.”
Colbert also mocked Trump’s bizarre claim that he saved a supporter’s marriage because he got more money.
“This is really going to resonate with actual people in real, totally not made up marriages,” said Colbert.
