Watch: Colbert Rips Jeff Sessions & Jared Kushner A New One For Lying About Russia Ties
Boom! Stephen Colbert ripped into Jeff Sessions on “The Late Show” for the latest controversy involving yet another senior Administration official caught lying about meeting with Russian government officials.
On Thursday Jeff Sessions held an awkward press conference to announce he will recuse himself from any investigations into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.
Colbert shredded Sessions’ poor performance in front of the cameras and pointed out how ridiculous it was for Sessions to end the presser abruptly after admitting he lied under oath to Senator Al Franken about meeting with Russian officials.
Colbert went on to describe the abrupt ending as follows:
“You can’t just end a press conference with the one piece of relevant information you have. That would be like Darth Vader saying ‘By the way Luke I’m your dad, take care, bye!'”
Colbert went on to take aim at Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, for covering up his own meetings with the Russian ambassador. Describing Kushner as, “Trump son-in-law and frat guy who seems nice at first, joined Michael Flynn at a meeting with the Russian Ambassador.”
