The host of “The Late Show” was commenting on a CNN report that Trump allies were scrambling for presidential pardons before he leaves office to the point “it’s turned crazy,” according to a source.
“I’m sorry, it’s turned crazy?” Colbert said. “This is the president who advised people to inject bleach, said that a dead Venezuelan leader stole the election, wanted to trade Puerto Rico for Greenland, and stop a hurricane with a nuclear bomb. We made the turn to Crazy Town a long time ago. Now we’re just doing doughnuts in Cuckoo Canyon.”
