What Late Night Milestone Has Stephen Colbert Reached?

Stephen Colbert uses pop culture to explain how Russian trolls helped Trump win with 'real fake news'

"Now you're Stephen Colbert", C.K. explained. "Somebody who lies sometimes", he began.

Admittedly, Louis once thought Trump was some "profound" "new kind of evil", but now he believes, "He's just a lying sack of sh*t". "Then you have a lying sack of sh*t". The comedian claimed he didn't mean for it to become such a big deal, but he also said that he doesn't regret sending the email.

In his monologue, Colbert also got into the ongoing Russian Federation investigation and Trump's decision to donate his first-quarter salary to the National Parks Service ("It's a nice change of pace to see Trump pay the settlement money before the screwing"), then laced into Sean Spicer shrinking in size: "This job is really grinding him down, starting from the shins up". They like it, he likes it. "He didn't lie to me. It's insane, he's just a gross, crook, dirty, lying sack of sh*t", C.K. said of Trump. As you know by now, UNC won the game in what was a very boring event riddled by referee mistakes and way too much free throw shooting to determine the game's fate.

That's the largest gap for CBS over NBC since Colbert's premier week in September 2015.

Colbert referenced new reports that Russians hired 1,000 people to produce anti-Hillary Clinton fake news stories in an effort to sway the 2016 US presidential election in Trump's favour.

He explained how the army of Russian trolls and their bots apparently worked: "If enough people say something is popular, I might trust that it's good. Wasn't even true. Then I said, 'They were liars'".
