The Late Show host Stephen Colbert has unpacked what he dubbed “one of the longest days I can remember— and keep in mind I’ve been to a Renaissance fair.”
In two monologues, Colbert unpacked Christine Blasey Ford’s “deeply moving … believable and heartbreaking” testimony against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and then, the rage-filled statement from Kavanaugh himself.
“He came out with a well-coiffed head of steam,” Colbert said, showing a clip of Kavanaugh’s angry testimony.
“Clearly Kavanaugh thought he already faced his Senate grilling, and was upset he was being subjected to more.”
Colbert hit the nail on the head, referring to Thursday as “the most divisive day in America since Laurel and Yanny, if Yanny was trying to get on the Supreme Court and Laurel had some really disturbing stories to tell about him.”
No matter what happens now, history’s judgment on Kavanaugh is already clear.
