Colbert Jokes About Trump And Russian Collusion On Russian State Late-Night TV

Stephen Colbert started ‘Russia Week’ from Saint Petersburg before appearing on Russia’s one late night TV show with an important announcement between vodka shots.

โ€œI am so honored to be here right now,โ€ Colbert told host Ivan Urgant after settling into the Evening Urgant guest chair. โ€œYouโ€™re the No. 1 show here, and this is the state TV, so youโ€™re officially an employee of the state … and we โ€” whatโ€™s the word for it? โ€” colluded that I would be on your show, so I look forward to going back to America and testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee about colluding with Russians. Thank you for the opportunity.โ€

โ€œTo the beautiful and friendly Russian people,โ€ Colbert began his first toast, โ€œI donโ€™t understand why no members of the Trump administration can remember meeting you.โ€

Urgant then toast saying: โ€œIโ€™d like to toast the wonderful country of the United States, which invented the internet,โ€ he said, โ€œthanks to which we can influence the outcome of the presidential elections in the US.โ€
