CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert was not impressed by Attorney General Jeff Session’s move to fire former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe Friday night – two days before his 50th birthday at which time he would have been eligible for his pension.
It’s cold, but it’s also not the right cold way to sack a cop.
“Wrong! If you want to get rid of a cop two days before his retirement, you send him out on one last job with a rookie,” Colbert scolded, stating the obvious.
“I’m gong to go look behind those suspicious shipping containers. You stay here kid,” Colbert said, in character as the soon-to-retire cop, if he was being played by Ronald Reagan.
It does not end well for Rookie Cop.
And because he got canned on Friday, McCabe loses his $60K a year pension, Colbert said, adding “That’s like half a porn star payment!”
