Stephen Colbert is really peeved that the US senate failed to pass any gun control bills on Monday.
“After the attacks in Orlando, Florida, I thought maybe the government would do their job and pass any kind of law, even a fig leaf to justify their existence,” CBS’s “Late Show” host said on Tuesday’s episode. “Well, for thinking that I owe myself an apology.”
“The couldn’t even agree to keep people on the terror watch list from buying high-powered assault rifles,” Colbert pointed out. “It’s easy to feel hopeless … I don’t understand you, senators. Ninety-two per cent of Americans want to expand background checks for gun-buyers and you just ignore them. Since when does 8% of the population get to have total control of an issue? That’s like taking your entire family on a crosscountry trip and letting grandma choose all the music.”
To express his anger, Colbert decided to drop the niceties in a segment called, “Stephen Colbert Takes the Gloves Off.” In it, he drops a hailstorm of jokes on the senate for their big failure in passing a gun control law.
Here’s a few of our favourite insults:
“Hey, you might as well ask the gun lobby to check for a hernia as long as they have your balls in their hands.”
“Senate, you accomplished so little that Kylie Jenner wants to know what the hell you do for a living.”
“You’re like a grandpa after an all-starch dinner, you can’t get s— done.”
