President Donald Trump is reportedly blaming “antifa people” for final week’s deadly violence within the U.S. Capitol, which was carried out by his personal supporters. So “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert stepped in with a fact-check on Tuesday evening.
“What the hell are you talking about?” Colbert requested, including:
“You invited those rioters to your rally in Washington. They were wearing your shirts, your hats, waving your flag. And they cheered when you told them to go to march on the Capitol.”
Colbert stated future neurologists will maintain up photos from the riot, exhibiting Trump supporters in Trump gear and waving Trump flags, then ask them to call the individuals within the image.
“And if they don’t say, ‘They’re MAGA people,’ you know it’s time to take away their car keys,” he stated.
Colbert additionally performed a clip from a news conference by Steven D’Antuono, assistant director in command of the FBI’s Washington discipline workplace, describing the arrests and investigation as far as “just the tip of the iceberg.” Colbert referred to as that an apt metaphor.
“The MAGA crowd has a lot in common with icebergs: Cold, white and when the heat is on, they just melt before your eyes,” he stated.
