‘It’s a Fight Club Situation!’ Colbert Claims Trump and Rod Rosenstein Are the Same Person

On Monday night, Stephen Colbert roasted President Trump for admitting on Twitter that he was being investigated.

“Mr. President, do you know the phrase ‘You better lawyer up?'” Colbert began. “That’s short for ‘You better get a lawyer and shut up.”

The Late Show host pointed out that the tweet also blames Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. And because he was in on talks of firing then-FBI Director James Comey, he may need to recuse himself from the investigation.

“That would make him the third member of this investigation to be gone after Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former FBI Director Jim Comey,” Colbert continued. ¬†“It’s all in the latest season of Survivor: Justice Department Island.”

He then called it “weird” that Trump would blame Rosenstein after he told Lester Holt that he made the decision himself to fire Comey.

“So, if Trump says he decided to fire Comey and Trump says that Rod Rosenstein told Trump to fire Comey, that means Trump is Rod Rosenstein! It’s a Fight Club situation!

He elaborated on his theory.

“They’re the same guy!” Colbert exclaimed. “I’ve never seen them on camera together! It explains why Trump can’t stop punching himself in the face!”

Colbert concluded, “The first rule of Fight Club is ‘Don’t talk about it.'”
