Comedian Stephen Colbert interviewed MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on “The Late Show” on Tuesday.

“As I’ve said to you many times before, I think that you are America’s premier explainer,” Colbert said. “Something complicated going on in the day, and you come out — and as I said before — you lay the story out like parts on a lawn and then put it together and say this is how the engine works.”

“Are you at all frustrated that the present scandal is so damn simple?” Colbert asked. “Let me lay out the parts. Trump called Ukraine — and I’m done.”

“Exactly,” she replied.

“Yeah, you can’t even sleuth your way through it,” Maddow noted. “In order to find out that Trump called Ukraine, what we had to do is ask Trump, ‘Did you call Ukraine?’ And he said, ‘Yes, here’s the evidence.'”

“It wasn’t even like, ‘Who done it? How can we prove it?’ It’s just over,” Maddow noted.

“There is stuff to explain, like ‘Why did this happen in Ukraine? And why did he think he could get that? And what’s going to happen to Ukraine?’ There’s other contextual stuff that I could make long segments about,” she noted.

“But in terms of who done it — he did it, he admitted it, and he’s going to be impeached for it,” Maddow added, to applause from the studio audience.

President Donald Trump doubled down on his "explosive tree" idea as the cause of the California wildfires.

Speaking to Fox News host Mark Levin, Trump explained that trees apparently explode, but trees in other countries are far worse than U.S. trees.

"I meet with foreign leaders of countries, and they have an expression, 'Sir, we are a forest nation.' But they say, 'we have trees that are far more explosive than the trees in California. We don't understand how a thing like that can happen. You have to manage your forest," said Trump.

It's a similar claim that Trump made while in California last week, claiming that the drought, heatwave and global climate change wasn't the cause.

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden announced that his campaign brought in a massive campaign haul during the Democratic convention last month ahead of the August campaign finance filing.

The campaign still has about $900,000 in debt. His cash on hand is just $121 million in the bank.
