Stephen Colbert spent Monday night thinking about something dark and horrifying: a sex tape of President Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels.
Daniels has threatened to release text messages, voice mail, as well as photos and videos that she said Trump sent her over the course of the months that she and Trump were having an affair. Pundits have feared the evidence of the affair might result in Trump being the first president ever to have a photo of his genitals aired publicly.
“Wait a minute, videos?” Colbert stopped dead in his tracks with a disgusting thought. “Does that mean there’s a Donald Trump sex tape? Will we soon see the release of ‘Rail to the Chief: Donald Hump in the Oral Office?'”
He joked that it would be over two whole minutes of “hard core action!” Ew.
“We don’t need to go that low! That’s not right!” Colbert exclaimed. “And it’s too bad this came up because Trump’s been in such a good mood lately. Friends describe him as ‘giddy.’ A man who has finally fully indulged his itch to break free of John Kelly’s restraints. Wait, wait — he was restrained?” Ew.
But according to Colbert, perhaps the president has broken free. “Quick! Get a tranquilizer gun and shoot with me it,” he said in his Trump impression. “I don’t want to see what happens now!”
He went on to explain how the new “unrestrained Trump” spent the weekend in Pennsylvania.

AG Bill Barr will ‘try to interfere’ in the 2020 election to re-elect Trump: MSNBC national affairs analyst
Attorney General William Barr will use the Department of Justice to "try to interfere" in the 2020 presidential election to re-elect Donald Trump, MSNBC's national affairs analyst predicted on Tuesday.
John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."
"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.
"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.
Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all
Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.
And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.
United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal
The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.
However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
