Stephen Colbert reacts to Robert Mueller’s indictment of Paul Manafort

“I know it’s almost Halloween, but it really feels more like Christmas.”

On Monday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert reacted to news that special counsel Robert Mueller had filed charges against Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort.

“I know it’s almost Halloween, but it really feels more like Christmas,” Colbert said. “The charges were actually filed on Friday, but they gave Manafort until today to turn himself in. Wow, we white people really do get arrested differently.”

Of course, the White House’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, “The real collusion scandal has everything to do with the Clinton campaign.”

“My god, of course!” Colbert exclaimed. “Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia to lose the election. But we never saw it, because we were playing checkers while she was playing three-dimensional lose the election.”

While Manafort plead not guilty, George Papadopoulos plead guilty to lying to the FBI about meeting with Russians.

“And the details of what Papadopoulos lied about are Papadopo-damning,” Colbert said. Papadopoulos made multiple attempts to set up meeting between Trump’s team and Russian officials. Said Colbert, “You can’t do that. That’s Don Jr.’s job.”
