Stephen Colbert reacts to Jeff Sessions hearing: He ‘really seems to know nothing’

“Everybody’s talking about America’s favorite new reality TV show: ‘So You Think You Can Testify About Russia,'” Stephen Colbert began on Tuesday’s Late Show. Just days after Former FBI Director James Comey‘s blockbuster hearing, there was a new testimony to talk about.

Attorney General “and last surviving Little Rascal” Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday morning about claims Comey made about his meetings with President Trump.

The committee chair advised his board not to take any “political or partisan shots” during the hearing. “What about whiskey shots?” Colbert asked, before knocking back a shot glass of amber liquid.

Sessions called any allegations that he or his department colluded with Russians an “appalling and detestable lie.” Colbert put on his best southern accent to announce, “I say, pistols at dawn, sir!…Which is actually not a good idea since the committee chairman is named Burr,” he joked, referencing the man who shot Alexander Hamilton.

At one point, Sessions was asked if he new of any contact Michael Flynn had with Russians, to which he denied knowing. “Wait a second, everybody knows there was communication between Russia and Michael Flynn, that’s why he was fired,” Colbert says, adding, “Sessions really seems to know nothing, which explains why he was the first senator to endorse Trump.”

  1. At some point, these people in the left’s lunatic base are gonna crack, and they’re not gonna just start cutting heads off of dolls, and they’re not gonna just start using fake knives to stab people in Central Park. Media & Democrats have blood on their hands, folks.

    1. James Hodgkinson was not some lunatic fringe wacko that storms into a movie theater. He was deranged, don’t misunderstand. But he was dead focused on policy — which makes this even more disturbing to me, if that makes sense to you. The fact that he is a devoted leftist that is up to speed on policy and can recite verbatim what he hears spoken by people he admires and the media and the Democrat Party? That’s what I think heralds the identity of the modern-day left, the media and the Democrat Party. Sharon Knerr

  2. That’s right. Tell Trump and his cronies to do something positive for the country instead of tearing it apart. This is just the beginning. There will be a march on Washington to terrible to contemplate.
