Colbert Mocks Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer: ‘Direct-to-DVD Addams Family’ Dems
On Wednesday, Stephen Colbert panned President Donald Trump for his Oval Office speech which, according to the comedian, amounted to a “liarside chat.”
Sparing no punches and not hiding the fact he found the whole thing boring, he also mocked the Democrats and specifically Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for their snoozefest response.
“So in the end, Trump’s big network-interrupting Oval Office liarside chat was his old immigration talking points with nothing new,” Colbert said, before noting the Democrats did no better with their chance to fire up America.
“Democrats sent out some exciting, fresh young faces, Congressional Democratic leaders and direct-to-DVD Addams family Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi,” he continued on, flashing an image of the pair on the screen and noting they had an opportunity to “juice it” after Trump’s low energy performance.
“Uhhh…looks like America is about to get the sex talk,” he said before noting the awkwardness of the two Democrats using just one podium.
“The night was a universal snoozefest,” Colbert then concluded before moving on to the more exciting, off-script remarks Trump made on Wednesday about his proposed wall.
