Stephen Colbert: This Trump-Ted Nugent Moment Is ‘Perfect’ Summary Of Where We're At

A CNN segment involving the conservative rocker "captures exactly" how many feel just days before the election, said "The Late Show" host.

Stephen Colbert thinks he’s found the moment that “captures exactly” the way many people feel just days before the 2020 election.

“The Late Show” host on Tuesday pointed to a segment on CNN in which the network’s White House correspondent Jeremy Diamond was drowned out at President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan, by conservative rocker Ted Nugent’s loud rendition of the national anthem.

“I can’t believe how perfect it is as an analysis of what is happening because I think that clip captures exactly what’s going on inside our skulls right now,” said Colbert.

“We’re all trying to figure out what’s going on, maybe listen to that quiet voice telling us the right thing to do,” the comedian continued. “But Donald Trump is trying to drown all that out with ‘Cat Scratch Fever.’”
