Here is some of the best bits from late-night talk shows after the Comey testimony.
The Daily Show – Trevor Noah
“I mean, today’s hearing was cool and everything,” Trevor Noah said “but basically, it was like listening to a clean version of a hip-hop song. It felt like we missed all the explicit parts!”
Late Night with Seth Meyers
“If it didn’t feel like there were any new bombshells today, that’s because we were surrounded by previous bombshells,” Meyers pointed out. “Our capacity to be shocked has already been so worn down by the Trump presidency, he’s like your druggie cousin who can no longer surprise you. ‘Kevin traded Aunt Janet’s cat for Robitussin!’ ‘Uh huh.’”
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Colbert greeted everyone with a happy “St. Comey’s Day”. He joked “He thought Trump might lie? That’s razor-sharp FBI instinct in action right there,”
John Mulaney joined Colbert on the stage
He explains to Colbert how Trump is like ‘A Horse Loose In A Hospital’
The Tonight Show Staring Jimmy Fallon
We can’t have a list of late-night talk shows without including Jimmy Fallon. He compiled pieces from the hearing along with clips from soap operas.
“Comey tried to take his wife out the next night, and she said, ‘Actually, Trump just asked me to dinner.’”
