President Trump celebrated his birthday Wednesday by learning that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating him for obstruction of justice. On Thursday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert reacted to the news that the president is now the subject of a criminal investigation.
“Looks like Trump’s gonna need to change that hat,” Colbert said of Trump’s favorite accessory. “Make Justice Obstructed Again.”
Last week, former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee that Trump told him he “hoped” he would stop the investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn‘s ties to Russia. Now the Justice Department will look into that claim.
“This is a huge moment, this is a historic moment,” Colbert remarked. “The president of the United States is currently under criminal investigation. When the movie comes out, this will definitely be in it. And I will definitely be played by Hugh Jackman.”
Robert Mueller is a former FBI Director and will surely turn over every stone to get to the truth. “Mueller is not kidding around here!” Colbert said. “To find out what happened, he has put together what’s been described as an all-star legal team.”
“The Obstruction of Justice League!” Can’t wait for the movie.
