Stephen Colbert was very excited about former FBI Director James Comey’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Thursday.
“It’s the most magical night of they year, because it’s Comey testimony eve,” the host said on Wednesday’s episode of CBS’s “Late Show.”
Leading up to what Colbert also referred to as “Washington’s Super Bowl,” he commented on Comey’s prepared statement released on Wednesday.
“There’s a lot of weird stuff in these documents,” he said.
For example, Comey details a private dinner he had with Trump in January amid reports that the president’s campaign was compromised by contacts with Russian officials and that the president had cavorted with Russian prostitutes.
According to Comey, Trump told him “he had nothing to do with Russia. Had not been involved with hookers in Russia.”
To which Colbert joked, “Comey replied, ‘I understand, Mr. President, but I just asked what you had for breakfast?'”
In another meeting, Comey said that the president told him, “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty.” Comey remarked, “I didn’t move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed.”
“Basically, Comey treated Trump like the T-rex in ‘Jurassic Park,'” Colbert said. “It makes sense, they both have the same sized hands.”
Also, Colbert found it funny that Comey said Trump kept referring to the controversy over potential connections between his campaign and Russian officials as the “cloud.”
“Mr. President, that’s not a cloud,” Colbert said. “Meteorologists call that a s–tstorm.”
