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

Published

on

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.”

John Dean explains the big mistake Hope Hicks made by stonewalling Congress

Published

on

Former White House counsel John Dean, a key figure in the Watergate scandal, said Wednesday on CNN that there was a serious flaw in the attempt to prevent longtime Trump confidant Hope Hicks from testifying to Congress.

White House lawyers have asserted that Hicks has absolute immunity and is not legally required to testify about her time as Trump's director of communications. Hicks testified Wednesday during a closed-door hearing before the House Judiciary Committee — where she reportedly refused to answer questions about her White House job.

"Privilege is not being asserted here. Instead, the White House says that Hicks has absolute immunity regarding the time that she spent at 1600 Pennsylvania. Does absolute immunity even exist? And if so, can you explain to me the difference between the two?" CNN host Brooke Baldwin asked Dean.

Economist mocks GOP for trying to pin racism on Democrats — after telling a harrowing story about anti-black economic envy

Published

on

Economist Julianne Malveaux explained to the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that there was a time in the United States where black Americans were actually closing the wealth gap with white Americans -- until white Americans rioted and burned their property.

During her testimony at a hearing on reparations, Malveaux recounted the horrific story of the destruction of "Black Wall Street," which was a location in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was known for its high concentration of black-owned businesses and black wealth.

The area's prosperity came to an end in 1921 when white Tulsa residents used baseless accusation of a black man sexually assaulting a white woman as a justification to chase out all black residents and set fire to their neighborhoods. Hundreds of black residents were killed in the riots and the majority fled the city.
