‘Satan’s trophy-wife’: Colbert mocks Kellyanne Conway’s ‘fun with words’ bit with version 2.0
To comedians like Stephen Colbert, moments like Kellyanne Conway’s instantly meme-able “visual aid” demonstration on Fox News are pure gold.
During his cold open, Colbert mocked Conway’s use of two sheets of paper with large, uppercase words on them to great effect.
“Trump’s not the only one defending his son,” Colbert said. “Last night, senior White House advisor and Satan’s trophy-wife Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News and use a little visual aide to drive home her point.”
After cutting to Conway’s vocabulary lesson on Fox News, he decided to give it a shot himself.
“Fun! I wanna try,” Colbert said.
“Trump, Jr. tried to ‘articulate,'” he began, holding up a piece of paper with “articulate” in all-caps. “But that turned out to ‘incriminate.'”
“It’s something even an idiot would ‘anticipate,” he said, holding up another sheet of paper. “And now he’s gonna be an ‘inmate.'”
