On Thursday’s Late ShowStephen Colbert reacted to reports that the White House ignored allegations of domestic abuse against Rob Porter, a high level aide.

Porter resigned this week after both of his ex-wives accused him of violent behavior, but the White House allegedly knew months ago. “Now, these are horrible, sickening revelations. So the White House had no choice but to defend him,” Colbert wryly remarked.

“Is the Trump administration so desperate for people who are even mildly competent that they’re willing to overlook anything? ‘O.K., it says here in your résumé that you are a meth-dealing cannibal human trafficker who runs a cockfighting ring — and proficient in Excel, that’s good! Welcome aboard!’”
