“what the hell are you talking about?!” Colbert shouted. You have invited these rioters to your gathering in Washington. They were wearing your shirts and hats and waving your flag! And they cheered when I asked them to march to the Capitol. From now on, neurologists will upload pictures like this of stroke victims and say, “Can you tell me who their supporters are?” And if they don’t say, “They are MAGA people,” then you know it’s time to take their car keys. “

The host said the “anti-fascist excuse” was “so ridiculous,” that even “Kevin McCarthy, a typically spine-free area” opposed the president. “Finding this out late in the game that Kevin McCarthy has the power to name reality in the face of the president’s lies is like discovering that Tom Hanks is in forsaken He’s had a boat the whole time! “
