“I am still riding high from last night’s interview with James Comey,” The Late Show host Stephen Colbert admitted. “I thought it went well.”
“I’m not sure if the president saw the interview, I hear he doesn’t watch TV hosts who don’t share his lawyer,” Colbert joked. “I’m right about that, right? Allegedly, allegedly.”
“But he might have watched based on this seemingly out-of-nowhere tweet,” Colbert continued.
He then impersonated President Trump when reading this tweet:
Slippery James Comey, the worst FBI Director in history, was not fired because of the phony Russia investigation where, by the way, there was NO COLLUSION (except by the Dems)!

“First of all sir, James Comey is not slippery,” Colbert fact-checked. “He was right there, I touched him, his texture is dry and rough.”
“Comey’s appearance here was so powerful, it’s already healing a nation,” he argued. “Need proof? James Comey is now friends with the Wu Tang Clan!”
