Last night was supposed to be about The Daily Show reunion on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, but then that turd Trump went and set off a constitutional crisis by firing FBI Director James Comey. Why did Trump fire James Comey? Well, ostensibly because Comey was super mean to Hillary Clinton and held those press conferences tanking her shot at the presidency. That’s right. They are claiming — WITH A STRAIGHT FUCKING FACE — Trump fired Comey because he helped Trump get elected. And not, you know, because Comey had just days earlier asked for more money and resources for the Russia investigation.
Tevor Noah, for one, isn’t buying it.
Jimmy Kimmel wonders if Trump thinks he’s still on The Apprentice. Considering that he has now fired three — THREE — people (Sally Yates, Preet Bharara and James Comey) who were investigating him, he might be onto something.
Stephen Colbert notes that Trump managed to make Comey’s firing about Trump:
And though Late Night with Seth Meyers didn’t address the Comey firing, as it probably happened moments before they began taping, writer Amber has some tips on how to not laugh at Jeff Sessions, the man who supposedly decided that Comey needed some firing.
As for that Daily Show reunion, it began with a flashback to Colbert’s last day:
And Jon Stewart discussed the “cock-holster” joke controversy, you know, the one where Colbert said that the only thing Trump’s mouth is good for is being Putin’s cock-holster? Sounding more and more true with every firing.
Buckle up for tonight, because shit’s about to get real.
