Trump Wants To Call His Own Witnesses In Senate Impeachment Trial

Trump Wants To Call His Own Witnesses In Senate Impeachment Trial


WELCOME ONE AND ALL, LADIES AND
GENTLEMEN, CHILDREN OF ALL AGES, TO “THE LATE SHOW.” I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. THE BIG STORY CONTINUES TO BE
DONALD TRUMP’S ALLERGIC REACTION TO THE CONSTITUTION, AND
TONIGHT, I’LL STAB YOU WITH THE EPIPEN OF FUN IN THE LATEST
INSTALLMENT OF “DON AND THE GIANT IMPEACH.” ( CHEERING )
>>I HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO WHATEVER I WANT AS PRESIDENT.>>STEPHEN: TODAY, THE HOUSE
JUDICIARY COMMITTEE DEBATED WHETHER TO SEND TWO ARTICLES OF
IMPEACHMENT TO THE HOUSE FLOOR. BUT FIRST, THEY SPENT HOURS
PROPOSING HIGHLY SPECIFIC AND ASININE AMENDMENTS. LIKE ONE FROM FLORIDA
CONGRESSMAN AND HUMAN-HANGOVER HYBRID, MATT GAETZ. ( BOOING )
GAETZ ARGUED THAT DEMOCRATS ARE FOCUSED ON THE WRONG BIDEN.>>THIS AMENDMENT STRIKES THE
REFERENCE TO JOE BIDEN AS THE CENTER OF THE PROPOSED
INVESTIGATION AND REPLACES IT WITH THE TRUE TOPIC OF THE
INVESTIGATION, BURISMA AND HUNTER BIDEN. IT’S A LITTLE HARD TO BELIEVE
THAT BURISMA HIRED HUNTER BIDEN TO RESOLVE THEIR INTERNATIONAL
DISPUTES, WHEN HE COULD NOT RESOLVE HIS OWN DISPUTE WITH
HERTZ RENTAL CAR OVER LEAVING COCAINE AND A CRACK PIPE IN THE
CAR.>>Stephen: WOW. WOW. LISTEN, I’VE GOT TO SAY,
I FEEL SORRY FOR WHOEVER GOT THAT CAR AFTER HUNTER BIDEN. ( LAUGHTER )
YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THEY CHARGE IF YOU RETURN THE CRACK PIPE
UNFILLED? ( LAUGHTER )
PRETTY BALLSY FOR A CONGRESSMAN TO BRING THAT UP WHEN HE WAS
ARRESTED FOR D.U.I. IN 2008. ( AUDIENCE REACTS )
NOW, YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE KNOWN THAT, BUT GEORGIA’S HANK JOHNSON
DID.>>THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE
BLACK IS NOT SOMETHING THAT WE SHOULD DO. (LAUGHTER)
I DON’T KNOW WHAT MEMBERS, IF ANY, HAVE HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH
SUBSTANCE ABUSE, BEEN BUSTED IN A D.U.I., I DON’T KNOW, BUT IF I
DID, I WOULDN’T RAISE IT AGAINST ANYONE ON THIS COMMITTEE. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: WOW. WOW! THAT IS A MASTER CLASS IN
PASSIVE AGGRESSIVENESS! “I WOULDN’T WANT TO SAY ANYTHING
NEGATIVE ABOUT A CERTAIN MEMBER BECAUSE HE’S SUCH A FRAGILE
LITTLE BITCHY-BOY. BUT —
( LAUGHTER ) I YIELD BACK THE REMAIRPD OF MY
TIME.” THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE TRIED TO
WRAP THINGS UP AT A REASONABLE HOUR BECAUSE THERE WAS A
CONGRESSIONAL BALL AT THE WHITE HOUSE AT 7:00 TONIGHT, AND A
NUMBER OF JUDICIARY MEMBERS– PARTICULARLY REPUBLICANS– WERE
EXPECTED TO ATTEND. “WE HAVE TO GET TO THE BALL! WE HAVE TO GET TO THE BALL! BEFORE THE PRESIDENT TURNS INTO
A PUMPKI– AH, SHOOT. TOO LATE.” ( LAUGHTER )
“TOO LATE, I FORGOT. WE HAVE TO GET TO THE BALL!”
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ♪ SOME DAY! ♪
IF THE ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT DO PASS THE HOUSE, TRUMP WOULD
STAND TRIAL IN THE SENATE EARLY IN THE NEW YEAR. AND ONE SENATOR SAYS, THE TRIAL
WOULD TAKE “APPROXIMATELY TWO WEEKS IN JANUARY” AND WOULD
FEATURE NO WITNESSES. OH, THAT’S GOING TO BE SOME
COMPELLING TELEVISION. ( LAUGHTER )
REMINDS ME OF THE FAMOUS COURTROOM SCENE FROM “A FEW GOOD
MEN.”>>DO YOU HAVE AN ANSWER? ( LAUGHTER )
I’D LIKE AN ANSWER TO THE QUESTION, JUDGE. DID YOU ORDER THE CODE RED? ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: WOW, HE’S GOOD. CRUZ DOESN’T NEED AN ACTING
PARTNER. THAT’S HOW GOOD HE IS.>>Jon: YEAH
>>STEPHEN: NOW, THE PRESIDENT’S PUTTING A BRAVE FACE ON IN
PUBLIC, BUT IMPEACHMENT SEEMS TO BE GETTING TO TRUMP. AIDES SAY HE HAS APPEARED
DISTRACTED AND UNFOCUSED DURING CONVERSATIONS. YES, DISTRACTED AND UNFOCUSED —
UNLIKE THE OLD LACER-FOCUSED DONALD TRUMP. (AS TRUMP)
“MY FELLOW AMERICANS, I COME TO YOU TONIGHT TO ANNOUNCE THAT
AMERICAN GROUND FORCES ARE– HEY! THERE’S A GUY I KNOW! ANYWAY, CHINA, GIVE ME DIRT ON
JOE BIDEN. BING BING, BONG BONG! FLUSH YOUR TOILET 15 TIMES.” “GOOD NIGHT.” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
BUT IT’S NOT JUST IMPEACHMENT THAT’S GETTING ON HIS NERVES. IT’S WHY HE’S BEING IMPEACHED. ONE ADVISER SAID, “FRANKLY, I
THINK HE’S A LITTLE SURPRISED IT’S THE UKRAINE THING THAT’S
DONE IT.” YEAH, ME, TOO! AFTER ALL THE SHADY DEALS HE’S
BEEN INVOLVED IN, HE GETS TRIPPED UP BY A PHONE CALL? TRUMP GETTING IMPEACHED FOR
UKRAINE IS LIKE PAUL NEWMAN WINNING AN OSCAR FOR “THE COLOR
OF MONEY.” HE DEFINITELY DESERVES IT, BUT
IT SHOULD’VE HAPPENED WAY EARLIER. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( PIANO RIFF ) TRUMP IS ALSO ANNOYED AT HOW
IMPEACHMENT IS PLAYING OUT ON TV. HE’S REPORTEDLY FIXATED ON HOW
THE NEWS MEDIA IS PORTRAYING HIM, WITH ONE ADVISER SAYING,
“THE COVERAGE BUGS HIM.” (AS TRUMP)
“I DON’T GET IT. WHY DOES THE MEDIA ALWAYS PAINT
ME AS THE BAD GUY? ANYWAY, SOMEBODY PHOTOSHOP ME TO
LOOK LIKE THANOS.”

  1. some people wonder how anyone could still support trump ….. then they remember that those supporters actually made a video portraying him as a giant purple megalomanic strong man attempting to kill billions of people ….. AS A COMPLIMENT ( –______-)/

  2. I gotta say 2016 was proof to the world that America was not what it claimed to be (the greatest democracy), the world is laughing at you, keep entertaining us till the end of 2020.

  3. Dems are finished 5 have already bailed they know what's coming!!! This party will not survive next elections and good riddens!!! Rudy's got them all! Shiffty and Pelosi both have been fingered in Burisma scandal money laundering!!!! Hank Johnson is still around!!? He thought Guam was going to sink ! 😂 what a bunch of halfwits!!!!!!

  4. Chelsea Clinton got out of college and got a job at NBC that paid $900,000 per year. Her mom flies around the country speaking out about white privilege.

  5. Russia donated $0.00 to the Trump campaign. Russia donated $145,600,000 to the Clinton Foundation. But Trump was the one investigated!

  6. This is so Fubar. I mean the dems are in fact following the guidelines that the republican put into law. First the republicans say its too secret and in a Basement. Then the dems makes it public. then reps say you have no evidence, but there was 12 witnesses all saying the same thing. Then the rebs blocks anymore to testify. Then the rebs say this is bi-partisen , but starts working with the DOJ that are the ones on trial.

    Hey america. How did this happen? You have Donald Trump as Corrupt president. Bill Barr as head of DOJ. Moscow Mitch as head of the Senate and a Brett kavannah appointed to a supreme justice seat. A propaganda media channel fox news with false information. This is like how Stalin & Putin took over the government.

  7. The Constitutional process needs to be followed, with Honor for the
    Truth to expose and remove the
    Corruption, whether it be Dems or
    GOP. For Mitch to derail the Senate
    Trial, shows great dishonor.

  8. Best news is that the Dems don’t have the votes to remove trump. And No Dem will beat him in 2020… I hear the crying of libs already…

  9. I cannot believe the US people are so stupid as to bring about an impeachment and not cite which crime has been committed. It seems the US Democrat socialists are about as stupid as the UK Labour Party who have just been thrashed at the polls. And quite frankly the one-sided view of this twat anchor has to be the next one for Mark Dice to take the piss out of. Thew problem is that CNN, MSNBC etc have failed to report the past few weeks with any accuracy. You wouldn't believe that this President has the most successful economic outlook ever, from reading the Fake News. You wouldn't believe, from reading the Fake News media, that Pres.Trump has jailed more paedophiles and child traffickers than all other Presidents put together. You should start believing in your President and stop giving the Democrats any credibility.
    Can I give you Dem supporters some advice? Start watching X22Report and Stroppy Me to get the REAL NEWS.

  10. Colbert is a provocative ass. The kid is 16 years old, has a profound disorder and has memorized her script and supporting performance. Research Aspberger’s.

  11. That gaytz dude has GOP cretin written all over his face. I hear that he was one of the door beaters when they were recounting the votes in Florida after the bush-gore debacle in 2000. What a frickin creep that little gaytz turd is. Just look at his stupid face. wtgdf?

  12. IF there is one crime the big city wealthy ruling elites from New York City will not be investigating…
    it is doing drugs like cocaine while cruising around town!

  13. oymG he got pranked- i mean the pumpkin-somebody was being vindictive !sonebody pulled a fast one ! or do you think he thought of it himself ?!?!? it is possible i believe he might have read something in the Inquierer and thought it was true 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😁😂😄😂

  14. Through cutting taxes, deregulation, and causing people to get off welfare, President Trump is transferring power away from the government and back to "We The People", (which actually strengthens the Constitution) and this is very upsetting to the more socialist minded power hungry lawmakers.

  15. 00:23  He actually said that. Our president actually said that. If it looks like a dictator, If it walks like a dictator, If it sounds like a dictator, then it must be a dictator. But actually he's just a dick.

  16. Speaking of people totally unqualified and inexperienced – how about Jared 666 Kushner -the slumlord who solved all the problems in the middle east??

  17. Matt Gaetz looks like he uses cocaine. That's not a dig on his comments on Hunter Biden. He has the same, dark, sunken eye look that I've seen before. I don't remember Gaetz having that look from the other news stories I've seen.

  18. Children of all ages! I knew Colbert was a creep,and now its confirmed ,by hearing him reel in the children. This is purely by wicked design ,because he knows how easily children can be influenced,lied to,or in this case poisoned.Good night Stevey boy , because your unfunny show,and your treasonous antics will soon be put to bed,because of your shite ratings!!Hey ,and guess what asshole,Trump should be allowed to defend himself,as any other US citizen would.Grow up ya little woe is me,the lefty, fucktard!

  19. Pretty soon there's gonna be a water shortage in "red" states. All the asshat MAGots are flushing their toilets 15 times cuz prez High Crimes does it. They think it's patriotic.

  20. Obama's kids are millionaires,what's up with that,must be part of that Uranium One money.How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States end up in Russian hands.

  21. So funny, cuz all these “woke people”
    comments are gonna be crying 😢 libtards AGAIN 😂 in November 2020!! Can’t wait to watch it! #Trump2020 #RedLanslide2020

  22. Matt I Like Beer Geatz has been pulled over for drinking and driving 7or 8 times, arrested once, then his daddy (state senator) got the charges dropped.

  23. So Gaetz had a DUI in 2008? Can everyone remember…that was 11 years ago. If he hasn't been caught since, surely there isn't a problem?
    And getting caught DUI once hardly indicates Substance Abuse. If it did, there are a lot of people going to be trying to use that as an excuse for their poor judgement.
    What is it with American politicians that they remember every little thing that ever happened to someone, and they are not slow at bringing up something that happened 10 years or more, ago.

  24. Yes laser focused Trump…cause when a woman was standing next to him in the Oval Office telling him that ISIS murdered her whole family…his literal next sentence was…where are they now?

  25. That is so sad, to have a narcan commercial on any platform, because it's justifying an overdose, plus the one portrayed as a possible candidate for this overdose of prescription opioids, is a teenage boy. Hey satlers. Is 10,000,000,000. Billion dollars enough money for getting America sick, No, you have to sell the O D cure for $ 200 bucks. Parasites is what you ALL drug dealers are. Don't matter if U deal out of warrez, or Walgreens. U R still A dealer. Thanks again, Wonka Luv'z y'all

  26. All this happens when you don't immediately JAIL the bastard and his republiCON cronies for committing ELECTION FRAUD in November, 2016!

  27. If you haven't figured it out yet. It's not about Trump's "corruption" it's about making sure you don't find out about the Democrats corruption.

  28. besides trying to take Trump down, what are we even doing for America!? The party has turned and I don't see myself sticking around much longer… wth happened to dems? Shouldn't we be pushing to build America UP? as we squabble, China is taking over… I don't even see the importance of the impeachment to start with… it's sooo weak

  29. I USED TO BE REPUBLICAN.
    NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I WILL BE VOTING DEMOCRAT IN 2020!!!!!!!!
    DONALD TRUMP HAS ALWAYS BEEN A CRIMINAL AND A TRAITOR TO 🇺🇸
    AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    THAT MEANS ALL 🇺🇸 AMERICANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ALL REPUBLICANS!!!!!!!!!!

  30. I used to be Republican.
    NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I will be voting DEMOCRAT IN 2020!!!!!!!
    DONALD TRUMP has always been CRIMINAL
    And a TRAITOR to
    🇺🇸 AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    That means all 🇺🇸
    AMERICANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    AND ALL REPUBLICANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. All these shows are comical. Can't even be creative anymore just attack same shit, different toilet bowl. Lol! I bet your friends with Jimmy Kimmel the two faced narcissistic man whore that has been known to degrade women on television. The irony! BAAAAAHAHAHA

  32. "i have the right to do whatever i want, as president." imagine if obama said that, the right would try impeaching him just for saying that!

  33. Colbert, the only way you have a chance of getting ratings is to drop your pants and do your humorless monologue bare-azzed. You are a crummy comedian. Enjoy your 1.2 rating you dbag

  34. I've hated Trump since the 70s the people who voted for him are the ones who don't know him at all if they believe the con that's how a con artist works if you took the time and got off your fat ass is in research that you would hate him like I hate him in fact Hitler has more of my respected Trump because Hitler was actually a veteran he really did fight for his country Trump is never done a single thing a man is called out to do he has no clue what a man is that's why Greta is on the cover of time because at 16 with a form of autism she has accomplished more good in this world than Trump could ever possibly do Trump is a narcissistic little pussy boy who's never done any work and he just sits and cries and wants to look important but the fact of the matter is the world would it be in a better place if Trump never was born

  35. Mark my words, Dumpy Trump won't want to speak at the trial In January. He will want only his witnesses to speak for him. If he speaks, and it is not written on paper for him to memorize all he should say. He will definitely put his foot in his own mouth again and sound like the kinder garden child that he is. Trump would be honestly dumb, and doesn't have the intellect without study of words written for him in advance. This shall prove very interesting, Trump on trial. Trump has to answer for his actions. Trump is so upset he can't be above the law, and be controlling of his destiny. He destiny was to be impeached if he became president the moment he thought of running for president. Even if Dumpy Trump gets to do another term after trial, he was still impeached and it infuriates him to go down in history with an impeachment, and as it was also written in the stars this would happen to him.

  36. Ahhhhh that burn when Hank Johnson mentioned the DUI haha I could almost hear the meme with the black guys around "popopopoooooooo" xD
