GOP Rep.'s Ridiculous U.S. Capitol Riot Claim Mocked In Stinging Ad

Georgia Republican Andrew Clyde's gaslighting on the insurrection was transformed into a spoof tour company spot on Stephen Colbert's "The Late Show."

Rep. Andrew Clyde’s (R-Ga.) wild gaslighting about the U.S. Capitol riot got “The Late Show” treatment on Thursday.

Clyde, during a House Oversight Committee hearing this week, falsely characterized the deadly riot by supporters of ex-President Donald Trump as just “a normal tourist visit.” 

“Let me be clear: There was no insurrection,” Clyde declared. “And to call it an insurrection, in my opinion, is a bald-faced lie.”

Stephen Colbert’s team took the spin and turned it into a stinging tour ad.

“Scale the scenic barricades,” urges the narrator.

There’s “fun for the whole militia!”
