Patrick Stewart And Stephen Colbert Rip Donald Trump's Obamacare Repeal In 'Waiting For Godot' Spoof

“Why hasn’t it come already?”

Patrick Stewart and Stephen Colbert gave Samuel Beckett’s play “Waiting for Godot” a Trumpian twist on Wednesday’s broadcast of the “Late Show.”

Channeling characters Vladimir and Estragon, the duo speculated as to if and when President Donald Trump’s promised replacement for Obamacare would arrive.

“Why hasn’t it come already?” asked Colbert.

Luckily, the actor used his “Star Trek” powers to extricate himself and Colbert from their precarious position.
