Stephen Colbert Exposes The Massive Flaw In Supreme Court's Logic

The "Late Show" host ripped into the abortion ruling and how it places power in the hands of someone he once called "the dumbest man alive."

Stephen Colbert said last week’s Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade contains a fundamental flaw.

The ruling allows states to restrict and ban abortion. Or, as the court ruling put it, they have returned “the issue of abortion over to the people’s elected representatives.”

Colbert shot back in disbelief: “Have you met the people’s elected representatives?!? I have!”

He then called out one right-wing Texas lawmaker, in particular.

Louie Gohmert is one of them,” Colbert said. “I’m not sure if he knows where babies come from!”

Colbert previously dubbed Gohmert “the dumbest man alive” after the GOP lawmaker complained that Republicans weren’t allowed to lie to Congress or the FBI.
