The ‘Late Show’ host went live Tuesday night to share his response to President Trump’s address to Congress.
“Now, technically, this was not a ‘State of the Union,’ because I think in this timeline, the Confederacy won,” Colbert joked at the top of his show, before hitting CNN for “trolling the nation” pre-speech with the chyron, “Trump Leaves White House Soon.” “Not cool, CNN,” he said.
“Of course, it’s a really big night, and some in Congress dressed for the occasion,” Colbert added. “The female members of the House Democratic Caucus wore white in honor of Women’s Suffrage. While the Republicans wore white in honor of who elected them.”
