Stephen Colbert wondered on Monday’s Late Show just how much damage a president could do in one week. “We’ve been off the air for the last seven…years?” Colbert remarked about all that’s happened since he went on hiatus last week. “You ever regret going on vacation? ‘Take the week off,’ they said. ‘America will still be here when you get back,’ they said.”
“Whether you voted for him or not, people said, ‘Let’s not worry too much. Let’s wait and see.’ Well, we didn’t have to wait too long. The line moves really fast on this ride. Every day you just get right back on the roller coaster and start throwing up.”
“You gotta give the guy credit. He can really get a lot of stuff undone. From Obamacare to climate change to torture, he’s already moved the country back to 2004. If this keeps up, pretty soon I’m gonna launch The Colbert Report,” Stephen said, to raucous applause. Oh, if only.
