On Monday night, Stephen Colbert had some fun at the expense of White House advisor Stephen Miller for his heated exchange with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
The Late Show host mocked Miller, who he called a “shaved Pauly Shore,” for telling Tapper that President Trump is a “political genius.”
“Yes, he is a political genius,” Colbert reacted,” who pioneered groundbreaking strategies like yelling and… having a hat.”
He then noted the “subtle” tension between Miller and Tapper, especially when the CNN host told his guest to “settle down.”
“Oh my God, he’s talking to Miller like he’s a 5-year-old!” Colbert exclaimed. “But everyone knows that Miller’s actual age is… 38? 61? Or 15? There’s no way to tell.”
Colbert also laughed at Tapper’s use of vocabulary when he called Miller “obsequious” and a “factotum.”
” Looks like somebody got a word-a-day calendar for the holidays!” he joked.
And before ending the segment, Colbert mocked Miller over reports that he had to be escorted out of CNN by security.
“Or as they call it in Washington, the Omarosa goodbye,” Colbert quipped.
