‘Most awkward sabbath dinner ever’: Colbert mimics Jared & Ivanka’s first shabbos post-Charlottesville

Published

Stephen Colbert

“I hope you had a good week,” Stephen Colbert said in his opening monologue on Friday’s episode of The Late Show. “But I know that you haven’t because I live here too.”

Before detailing the goings-on of the day, Colbert gave a religious shout-out.

“To my Jewish friends, good shabbos,” he said. “To Jared and Ivanka, happy most awkward sabbath dinner ever.”

He then went into an impression of Ivanka Trump starting her family’s day of rest with her presidential father.

“OK, let’s go around the table and say something we’re thankful for this week. Dad, we’re gonna skip you this time,” he said. “We’ll get you double next time.”

Colbert went on to discuss the week’s inescapable news item: that President Donald Trump “has been taking heat all week for being an apologist for some people who attended a neo-Nazi rally.”

“I just wanna say to Tom Arnold: if you have those outtakes of Trump saying the n-word on the Apprentice that you claimed, maybe release them now before he screams it at the turkey pardoning in November,” Colbert concluded.

The vote broke along unusual lines, with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg writing for a majority with Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch, and Justice Samuel Alito writing a dissent joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Stephen Breyer and Brett Kavanaugh.
