Texas is dealing with yet another major energy crisis as residents are urged to conserve power or face blackouts ― so “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert found it peculiar that the state just announced it would spend $250 million on a wall along its border with Mexico.
“What a wise use of taxpayer money,” he said. “You wouldn’t want to waste it on something stupid like shoring up their cotton candy power grid.”
But Colbert also said there’s a reason the Lone Star State needs a wall.
“I understand why Texas is desperate,” he joked. “They have to find some way to stop their senators from fleeing to Cancun.”
At one point, Colbert got his entire audience involved as he delivered a revised verse to “Deep In The Heart Of Texas.”
