This week, the public got a taste of exactly that after New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a civil lawsuit accusing Trump and his family of “staggering” fraud. James claimed the former president had dramatically inflated the values of his assets, especially his Mar-a-Lago home.

“Well, of course it’s worth less now,” Colbert cracked. “The FBI took away all the most resellable documents.”
