On Tuesday, comedian Stephen Colbert said that President Donald Trump will use his State of the Union address to evoke fear in the American people.
Trump is scheduled to deliver his address on February 5th. Colbert predicted that Trump will use his time to repeat his hateful immigration rhetoric to rally up his base and support for his border wall.
“You know Trump’s State of the Union is going to be filled with scary things to convince us to build his wall,” Colbert said.
He then read a report from Vox news that said Trump made ten references to claims that women were gagged with duck-tapped and put in the back of vans at the border without any evidence.
“Nobody knows where he got that [information] from,” Colbert said.
Colbert then said Trump must have gotten his information from the “Homeland Immigration Study Asslyum Support Statistics.”
“Or H.I.S A.S.S,” Colbert joked.

‘The man who sold America’: Mitch McConnell’s mountain of political sins catalogued in devastating new profile
Mitch McConnell finally has the power he's longed for since he was a 22-year-old intern for Sen. John Sherman, but his ruthless march to become Senate majority leader has seen him abandon almost all of his stated principles -- and earned him a lot of enemies.
The Kentucky Republican has been unpopular in his home state for years, but this summer has seen his approval rating plunge to 18 percent after MSNBC's Joe Scarborough tarred and feathered him with the nickname "Moscow Mitch," and he's increasingly seen as "the man who sold America," reported Rolling Stone.
Sarah Sanders rages on Fox News that the ‘out-of-control’ media is ‘making stuff up’ about Trump
In her new gig as a Fox News contributor, former White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders complained to host Sean Hannity that the "out-of-control" media makes "stuff up" about Donald Trump because they hate him for winning in 2016.
Sanders, who once told reporters that "countless" FBI agents had lost confidence in James Comey only to later tell investigators from special counsel Robert Mueller's office that she made it up, complained to the Fox host about the press being untrustworthy.
Inside the secret GOP plan to keep power in 2020 — and beyond
In 2020, we need to pay attention to state elections as well as elections for president and Congress. State elections could decide whether the Republican Party further corrupts American democracy.
As demographics change — and America becomes more diverse and more liberal — the GOP has responded by implementing policies that will take away power from the American people. Rather than changing with the times, they’ve got another plan: minority rule – by them.
