Colbert: Trump Administration Like ‘A Dog Who Spent His Whole Life Chasing a Car’

On Tuesday, Stephen Colbert used his opening monologue on The Late Show to poke fun at paranoia reportedly gripping the Trump White House.

“Paranoia has seized the Trump White House,” said Colbert. “I’m surprised. I thought Russia was going to seize it.”

Colbert cited a POLITICO article that suggested staffers were so frightened they were being spied on by a deep state, that some had taken to storing their work phones in drawers after office hours.

“This paranoia is just the frustration every new administration has with Washington D.C. It happens every time. You went to Washington, you went to work for Trump because you wanted to tear down the government. Now you have to deal with it. Now you are the government,” suggested the comedian.

Colbert then used an analogy to try and explain what was going on.

“It’s like a dog who spent his whole life chasing a car, now he has to drive the car,” he quipped. “We’re not happy about it either, by the way. Remember, we’re in the back seat of a car being driven by a dog now.”
