On Thursday’s “Late Show,” Stephen Colbert mocked White House advisor Kellyanne Conway’s use of rhyming flash cards in
a Fox News interview to downplay the possibility of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
In her interview, Conway tried to make the case — via two sheets of white paper and four bold-printed words — that the “CONCLUSION” of Donald Trump Jr.’s controversial emails regarding Russia was not “COLLUSION,” but instead “ILLUSION” and “DELUSION” on the part of the media.
Colbert seized upon the hokey visual aid in his monologue by making his own flash cards to address how he sees the Trump Jr. situation going down.
“Trump Jr. tried to ‘ARTICULATE,’ but that turned out to ‘INCRIMINATE,'” Colbert joked, holding up the cards. “It’s something even an idiot would ‘ANTICIPATE.’ And now, he’s going to be an ‘INMATE.'”
