Donald Trump gave his first address to a joint Congress on Tuesday night, and afterwards, Democrats sent former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear to respond to the speech. So naturally, The Late Show sent Stephen Colbert to respond to Steve Beshear’s response to Donald Trump.
Stephen first joked about the location of the rebuttal. He thought it odd the Democrats would go with “showing a retired politician from a darkened cafeteria,” as Beshear appeared in a dark diner surrounded by patrons all facing the same direction. But Colbert assumed this was to reinforce the Democrats’ new message: “Please don’t tell them where we’re hiding.”
Beshear introduced himself by saying, “I’m a proud Democrat, but first and foremost, I’m a proud Republican, and Democrat, and mostly, American.” Colbert continued, “I’m also a man, but first and foremost, I’m a woman, and a man, and mostly human, and a dog, ruff ruff.”
Watch the clip below for more on the Democrats’ rebuttal.
