Stephen Colbert kicked off Wednesday’s “Late Show” with a truly touching moment of prayer for Congressman Steve Scalise, who was shot yesterday at a Republican baseball practice just outside of Washington, D.C. Then the CBS host got right down to making the funnies.
Colbert’s main target was Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who lip-grinned his way through a recent Senate Intelligence Committee hearing about alleged White House ties to the Russian state, which many believe led to election hacking last November, when Donald Trump was selected to lead our country.
Former Trump advisor Jason Miller got his share of Colbert’s ire, too, for calling Sen. Kamala Harris’ questioning of Sessions “hysterical” during a CNN recap segment.
“Really? If anyone was ‘hysterical,’ maybe it was the old man who said her questions were scaring him,” Colbert quipped, referring to the very real moment when Sessions said the junior senator from California was making him “nervous.”
