Stephen Colbert eagerly picked apart Vice President Mike Pence’s role in Ukraine-gate during his monologue on Friday night. If President Donald Trump is “going down, he’s bringing a ‘Plus One,’” the “Late Show” host quipped.
Pence has admitted pressing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to ferret out corruption. Colbert said the vice president had to know Trump’s larger political plan here, given that he had a transcript of Trump’s phone call leaning on Zelensky to specifically investigate political rival Joe Biden and his son.
That means, Colbert concluded, that if an impeachment inquiry brings down Trump, Pence falls too. In a mock game “Corrupt or Dumb,” the late-night host scored the vice president as both.
