Stephen Colbert Rips Tucker Carlson Claiming His Staff Committed Insurrection: ‘Shameful and Grotesque Insult’ to Jan. 6 Victims – https://www.mediaite.com/tv/stephen-c…
“Stephen Colbert hit back hard at those who’ve tried to dismiss the storming of the U.S. Capitol by comparing the detainment of his production team to the riots of January 6.
The Late Show host used the top of his Monday night show to address the “memorable” weekend his team had when they were arrested at the Longworth House Office Building on the U.S. Capitol complex last week. The group was arrested alongside Robert Smigel, the puppeteer and voice behind Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, as they were working on a segment about the January 6 hearings.
Colbert addressed all of this as he told viewers “Democratic and Republican congresspeople agreed to talk to Triumph” for the bit.”
