‘His apartment is full of boner pills’: Colbert torches Don Jr.’s ‘I can’t help what people email’ excuse

Published

Stephen Colbert on Wednesday slammed Donald Trump Jr.’s assertion that he “can’t help” what people email him, joking that’s why the president’s eldest son has an apartment full of Nigerian princes and boner pills.

“Pretty much everybody agrees Trump Jr. was dumb to tweet this stuff, and the smart thing to do would just be to shut up.” Colbert said, referring to Trump Jr.’s emails regarding a meeting with a Russian emissary. “So, last night he went on Fox News and explained why he’s not responsible for any of this.”

Playing a clip of Trump Jr.’s interview with Sean Hannity, where the president’s eldest son claimed he “can’t help” what people email him, Colbert argued, “yes, he can’t.”

“That’s why his apartment is full of Nigerian princes and boner pills,” Colbert joked. “You’re gonna wanna keep those apart.”

Noting Trump Jr.’s excuse that the meeting occurred before “Russiamania” took over, Colbert said, “He colluded with the Russians before people were talking about Russian collusion, okay?”

“That’s like saying, ‘Yeah I fired a gun at that guy, but that was before everyone was talking about this whole murder trial,’” The “Late Show Host” pointed out.

Turning to Trump Jr.’s final excuse—that nothing came of the meeting—Colbert quipped, “Yeah it was all in his Yelp review: One star—did not deliver treason to table, would not collude again.”

“I got some news for you Don—just because you didn’t get your secret Russian intel doesn’t mean you’re the good guy here,” Colbert said.

Referencing Trump Jr.’s assurance that “in retrospect” he would probably do things different, Colbert got one last dig in: “He’s right—hindsight is 20/20,” Colbert said. “And I think a lot of voters will be using hindsight in 2020.”

Here’s how the law governing whistleblowers applies to the Trump Ukraine complaint

Published

on

This week it was revealed that President Donald Trump did something so concerning that an intelligence staffer felt the need to report the incident and file for whistleblower protections.

Trump asked Ukraine to look into scandals about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter. For nearly a year, Trump's former attorney Rudy Giuliani was admittedly working to persuade officials in Ukraine to find "dirt" on the Bidens that they could use in the election. While the accusations against the younger Biden have been disproven, it's suspected, but not confirmed, that this was the incident detailed in the complaint.

Published

on

In an examination of the record-breaking number of Republican lawmakers who have decided to quit or retire despite holding a seat in solidly conservative congressional districts, one lawmaker admitted that he grew weary of having to deal with Donald Trump's daily Twitter habit and other shenanigans -- so he is calling it quits.

As the Washington Post reports, "Since Trump’s inauguration, a Washington Post analysis shows that nearly 40 percent of the 241 Republicans who were in office in January 2017 are gone or leaving because of election losses, retirements including former House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis)."

The Internet reacted with scorn over the weekend after Second Lady Karen Pence announced a new Twitter account aimed at reelecting President Donald Trump.

In her first tweet, Pence posted a video lavishing praise on the president.

"There are probably a lot of things you don't know about me," Pence says in the video. "For example, I enjoy painting, I love to ride my bike and I like nothing better than reading a good book. On my new Twitter account, I will share what I'm up to when I'm not in the office at the White House."
