It was “Christmas” in the sweltering heat of August on Tuesday night when Stephen Colbert opened his late show Monologue with a full blown celebration of the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago. And it gave the host a chance to share his truly inspired impression of “former second first son” Eric Trump.
In response to Donald Trump’s son assuring Sean Hannity that all agents would find a “note from me telling him how proud I am of him and what a great job he is doing as President,” Colbert pulled his upper lip over his teeth and asked the FBI, “Did you find a note from him saying how proud he is of me? Keep looking… the truth is out there.”
Colbert also highlighted “an inconsistency” in Eric Trump’s story. Apparently he was “with” his father when he got the call about the raid, but then “called” his father to tell him about it.
Returning to his impression, he imagined the scenario where Eric called Donald from the same room. “Dad, it’s me over here!” he said. “It’s me, your son. Not the ones you like, the other. I have terrible news: I’m in the room with you.”
The host also shared his reaction to Trump’s claim that “nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” adding, “Well, of course not! No President has ever been as criminal as you!”
When Trump asked, “What’s the difference between this and Watergate?” Colbert replied, “Watergate was Dick Nixon breaking the law. That was the law that breaks in on a dick.”
