Colbert: The Only One Who Damaged Hillary’s Campaign More Than Putin ‘Was Hillary Clinton’

On Monday night, Stephen Colbert took some shots at President Obama and Hillary Clinton over The Washington Post bombshell report that exposed how the Obama administration handled Russia’s meddling in the presidential election.

The Late Show host pointed out from the report that Russian President Vladimir Putin gave “specific instructions to defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and help elect her opponent, Donald Trump.”

“And Putin was successful,” he stated. “The only person who did more damage to Hillary Clinton’s campaign… was Hillary Clinton.”

Colbert also mentioned that Obama considered using cyber weapons that were the “digital equivalent of bombs.”

“I think that means they were playing Minesweeper,” he joked.
