Trump ‘Volunteered to Do All the Mammograms’: Stephen Colbert Eviscerates GOP Health Care
After celebrations from GOP lawmakers historic repeal of Obamacare died down, it was late night’s turn to weigh in on House Republican’s victory.
“The House voted to repeal and replace Obamacare just a few hours ago,” said the Late Show’s Stephen Colbert. The statement was met with a chorus of boos. Making his own feelings known, Colbert then played footage of Obi Wan Kenobi reacting to the destruction of Alderaan.
“The new bill would cut taxes for the wealthy by $883 billion,” said Colbert. “If news of that raises your blood pressure, calm down, you can’t afford your medications anyway.”
Colbert then mocked White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus’ description of Trump “punting” the bill into the “end zone”
“The GOP just kicked American in the balls,” said Colbert to laughter. “He’s already volunteered to do all the mammograms.”
