Stephen Colbert on Wednesday continued to attack Donald Trump for equating the neo-Nazis who descended upon Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend with the counter-protestors who stood against hatred and bigotry.
Referring to the president’s seemingly-forced statement on Monday, where he unequivocally denounced white supremacists, Colbert told his audience, “you know it was the right thing to say because he hated saying it.”
Colbert noted Trump reportedly “fumed” at having to denounce a group of people who he said were simply “defending their ‘heritage.”
“Donald Trump drove America’s moral leadership right through the guardrails by saying some of the people bearing torches with the Nazis were just good Joes.” Colbert said.
“Mr. President, there’s only one thing I no longer have any doubt about—you showed us who you were,” Colbert latter added.
Explaining the president reportedly felt “liberated” after his much-maligned presser, Colbert went in on Trump.
“Liberated, free, emancipated,” Colbert said, before putting on his Trump impersonation. “Free at last, free at last, thank God almighty I’m free at last,” Colbert-as-Trump continued. “You like that? Melania wrote it.”

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages
MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.
The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.
Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.
"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."
Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president
One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.
In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
