Watch Stephen Colbert Take Down Trump’s Berserk New Attack on Obama

Following his heavily surveilled trip to Russia, “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert has returned to the United States with a barrage of new Kremlin collusion revelations.

“It’s important to keep your eye on a comedian while he is in Russia, you know, doing jokes,” Colbert opened. “I could be giving state secrets to the Russians.”

“Oh wait,” he said, pausing. “Somebody’s already got that covered.”

According to a new report from the Washington Post, President Obama knew about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s ordered interference in the 2016 election as early as August of that year, but neglected to decisive action, largely because he assumed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would prevail.

“Now reportedly Obama agonized over what to do,” Colbert continued. “He even authorized the planting of cyber weapons, the digital equivalent of bombs.”

“Of course, President Trump is a well-known ‘Russia hacked the election’ denier,” the “Late Show” host reminded his audience. “So naturally when he saw this Washington Post story, his reaction was completely consistent with all his previous statements.”

“I’m just kidding,” Colbert added. Trump tweeted:

“That’s right, there was no Russian hacking, period, fake news. Wait, it was Obama’s fault?” Colbert asked, as Trump. “Russia stole our election and Obama let it happen? Thanks, Obama. No, seriously, thanks Obama, I’m President now, thanks.”
