Colbert noted that it’s not exactly impeachment that’s getting on Trump’s nerves, but why he’s getting impeached. He quoted an aide again, who noted, “I think he’s a little surprised it’s Ukraine.”
“After all the shady deals he’s done over the years, it’s over a phone call,” said an amazed Colbert. “It’s like Paul Newman winning an Oscar for The Color of Money. He definitely deserves it, but it should have happened way before this.”
