Before Jon Stewart joined him to discuss Trump’s executive orders, Stephen Colbert used his monologue to ridicule Trump’s immigration ban. Noting first and foremost, “I wanna get these jokes out before Trump fires me,” Colbert joked about how awful Trump’s “honeymoon period” has been already, “How can Trump blow the honeymoon? He’s had three of them!”
He then moved on to the immigration ban and Trump’s firing of acting Attorney General Sally Yates for demanding that the Department of Justice not to defend the order. “Does trump not know what he’s doing, or does he not know what he’s doing…like a fox?” Stephen asked, questioning whether Trump is a puppet or a great manipulator.
Meanwhile, congressional Democrats protested the immigration ban, but during their rally, the microphone didn’t worked. If this is the opposition, Colbert remarked, “We’re doomed!”
