Though there’s certainly no shortage of material coming out of the Trump White House for late-night hosts this week and even on Wednesday specifically, they, including Stephen Colbert, almost uniformly addressed one particular topic: Stormy Daniels’ lawsuit against Donald Trump.
The suit says that the confidentiality agreement intended to keep Daniels from speaking about her possible affair with Trump was not valid because the president never signed it. Included in the suit were the details of that non-disclosure agreement. Of particular note was one item that Colbert and his peers all honed in on.
“But as juicy as this lawsuit is — and it is juicy — it hints at something even juicier because it mentions that Daniels is in possession of ‘confidential information’ that includes ‘certain still images and/or text messages from Trump,” Colbert said during his “Late Show” monologue. “I think we can all guess what these still images are. CBS will not permit me to say the colloquial term, so let’s just call them ‘penis portraits.'”
The colloquial term to which Colbert referred there is “d— pic” — while Colbert couldn’t say it, Seth Meyers over on NBC in the later time slot did exactly that.
Colbert doesn’t think the pictures will stay hidden long, joking that somebody other than Daniels will probably end up releasing them publicly.
“And we may not have to wait for Stormy Daniels. I’m pretty sure Don Jr. is just gonna tweet them out,” Colbert joked before switching to an impression of Trump’s namesake. “‘Way to go, dad’s penis! I came out of that!'”
Understandably, Colbert preferred a different bit of info revealed in the lawsuit.
“We haven’t even gotten to my favorite part of the lawsuit, which is that the confidentiality agreement refers to Trump as David Dennison while referring to Daniels as Peggy Peterson,” Colbert said. “Odd names, but it makes sense once you read the rest of the document because those names are actually abbreviated in the suit as two of Trump’s favorite things: double Ds and pee pee [DD and PP]. Allegedly. Allegedly!”
