On Tuesday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert revealed that despite his toughness on Twitter, Donald Trump has nothing on Jesus. On New Year’s Trump tweeted good wishes to his “many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!” That love for his enemies reminded Colbert of a famous quote from Jesus’ Twitter account “Suck it @PontiusPilate. I rose from the dead. @TheRealJesus is gonna live forever. Love!”
Before he got to the tweets, Colbert reacted to news that Congress decided in a secret vote Monday night to dismantle the Office of Congressional Ethics, the independent agency that investigates Members of Congress for unethical procedures. Even Donald Trump tweeted shame at Congress for the vote. “Man, when Donald Trump calls you out for being unethical, that’s a wakeup call,” Stephen said. “That’s like if Keith Richards told you to moisturize.”
