Stephen Colbert Responds to the Democrats’ Response to Trump’s Address to Congress

Here’s a clip from last night’s live Late Show episode, where Stephen Colbert takes a closer look at the very strange and confusing Democratic response to Trump’s address to Congress by former Kentucky governor Steve Beshear. “Showing a retired politician from a darkened cafeteria reinforced the Democrats’ central message for 2017: ‘Please don’t tell them where we’re hiding!'” Colbert says. “So, people who believe that Donald Trump is an existential threat to this nation, to the experiment of democracy, to Western civilization itself, take heart, because for their powerful rebuttal, the Democrats showed a rerun of The Andy Griffith Show.”

Check out another clip from the episode below featuring Colbert’s live recap of Trump’s address: “Any chance there’s a mistake and Moonlight is the president?”
