Stephen Colbert thanks Trump for the ‘pettiness and stupidity’ that resulted in John Bolton’s firing

Published

Comedian Stephen Colbert took digs at President Donald Trump and John Bolton, the former National Security Advisor who was ousted from the administration on Tuesday.

The host of the “Late Show” ridiculed both men during his opening monologue on Tuesday.

“I have never been more grateful for the president’s pettiness and stupidity, because today, he was stupidly petty enough to save us from a very smart warmonger, I’m talking about National Security Advisor and last walrus on the beach without a mate John Bolton,” Colbert said.

“Trump goes through staffers like a high 17-year-old goes through Little Debbie Swiss Rolls,” he said.

Colbert said it was a bad fit because Bolton kept trying to launch new wars, and impersonated Trump’s response.

“And I can’t have that, I’m already in so many wars. I got trade war, cupcake war, I’m in a flame war with Chrissy Teigen, and ‘World War II, what if the Nazis had won?’” he said, in his Trumpian voice.

Colbert also thought it was odd that Trump thought he moderated Bolton’s lust for war.

“So Donald Trump is the voice of reason?” Colbert asked.

Mitch McConnell crony running for Kentucky AG is ineligible for office: lawsuit

Published

on

On Tuesday, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that a new lawsuit seeks to remove Daniel Cameron from the ballot as the Kentucky GOP's nominee for state attorney general.

According to the lawsuit, filed by retired union worker and "concerned citizen" Joseph Leon Jackson Sr. in Jefferson Circuit Court, Cameron does not meet the office requirement of having practiced law for eight years — because although he was admitted by the Kentucky Bar Association in 2011, he spent two of the following years clerking for U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove.
