Stephen Colbert won’t let Trump disown campaign adviser George Papadopoulos

“Now, ghouls and goblins, join me for tonight’s twisted tale of terror, The Fall of the House of Trumper,” Stephen Colbert said on Tuesday’s Late Show as he continued to react to the indictments and guilty pleas.

Apart from the big story of Paul Manafort’s indictment, the other big news revealed Monday was that Trump’s former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos plead guilty to lying to the FBI about trying to set up meetings with Russia.

“Now, according to Trump, ‘George’ is just some random young person he’s barely heard of, like Tiffany,” Colbert joked. Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump only met Papadopoulos one time, but Colbert isn’t buying that. “Did you not go to health class?” he asked. “Collusion is like pregnancy — it only takes one time.”
