Stephen Colbert Spots The Trump Insult That Hit Mike Pence Where It Hurt
Stephen Colbert discovered an insult that Donald Trump allegedly directed against Mike Pence and that must have hit his Vice President, who had been known for his tireless loyalty, particularly hard.
Trump relied heavily on Pence to block Electoral College results certification, but Pence said he couldn't.
“You don't understand, Mike. You can do it. I don't want to be your friend anymore if you don't, ”he said aloud to“ Peril, ”the upcoming book by Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.
"That must have been hard to hear," said Colbert. "But then again, the next day at the Capitol Riot, Mike Pence made some new friends to hang out with."
Pence was evacuated along with the rest of Congress on Jan. 6 in the middle of the election certification process when Trump insurgents attacked the U.S. Capitol.
Certification was later resumed and, under the chairmanship of Pence, confirmed that Joe Biden had won the 2020 election.
Colbert also discusses other revelations from the new book in his monologue on Tuesday evening:
