On Friday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert stood up for his namesake as he mocked all the Steves in the Trump White House. Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, senior advisor Stephen Miller, and Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin have all been controversial figures in the new administration.
“There are so many Stephens in the Trump administration. It’s a rough time for the Stephen community,” Colbert said. “So tonight, I stand up for Steves, because we, Steves, are your neighbors. We’re your mailmen. We are your brothers in law.”
“When you want to read about a demon who kills New England children, do you pick up a book by Bernie King? No. You go to Stephen King every time. Stephens invented the Stone Cold Stunner,” Colbert remarked, referring to WWE star Steve Austin’s signature move.
“I’m looking forward to a Doris Kearns Goodwin book about the administration, ‘Team of Steves.’”
