“When the facts aren’t on your side, your only hope is ignorance,” The Late Show host Stephen Colbert said tonight. Case in point: Sen. Lindsey Graham, or as Colbert described him, the angry guy yelling at the waiter, “I was told these breadsticks were unlimited!”

Graham previously said that if Trump were found to be engaging in a quid pro quo outside of his infamous Ukraine phone call, “That would be very disturbing.”

However, he’s changed his tune. His latest: “I’m not going to read the transcript.”

According to Colbert, Graham apparently is working through the stages of Republican impeachment grief: “Anger, denial, won’t read, can’t read, No hablo Ingl├ęs.”

Colbert had one solution. “Lindsey, I’m sure you’re watching. I’ll summarize. Lindsey, don’t look away…”

Colbert then held up a sign: “Quid pro quo.”
