Stephen Colbert’s Late Show was off last week to make room for March Madness, but he was back in typical form Monday night, ribbing Trump and the GOP for failing to pass their replacement for Obamacare despite controlling both chambers of Congress.
“So, on Friday, lacking the votes they needed, they folded the ObamaCare repeal and placed it in the cabinet of broken Republican dreams,” Colbert said, “next to trickle-down economics and a Jesus-shaped fighter jet that drops gay people on ISIS.”
Trump blamed Democrats and Freedom Caucus Republicans because he didn’t have enough votes to make it a majority. “Well, that didn’t stop you from becoming president,” joked Colbert.
“After all his campaign promises, nothing,” Colbert remarked. “It’s almost like you can’t trust a fast-talking city slicker who rolls into town promising a magic solution for all our medical needs. I’m starting to doubt the effectiveness of Dr. Bannon’s Anti-Muslim Toad Oil.”
