Stephen Colbert brings his signature satire and comedy to THE LATE SHOW with STEPHEN COLBERT, where he talks with an eclectic mix of guests about what is new and relevant in the worlds of politics, entertainment, business, music, technology and more.
Stephen Colbert went after President Trump's most recent executive order, which rolled back Obama-era environmental policies that aimed to curb global warming-causing greenhouse gas emissions, in Tuesday night's "Late Show".
"The White House just announced that Trump son-in-law and leader of the preppy camp across the lake, Jared Kushner, will oversee a broad effort to overhaul the federal government", said Colbert. "She told me they mined the clean coal and they put it on that silver bullet train and then they send it to Narnia where the Keebler elves use it to power the pump on the Fountain of Youth", Colbert said.
He was referring to Kushner's appointment on Monday as the head of a new Office of American Innovation, tasked with diverse tasks like fixing health care for veterans and tackling opioid addiction.
"Kushner's job will be to lead a team to fix government with business ideas", mocked Colbert.
Jared reportedly said that he thinks "the government should be run like a great American company", and that the Trump administration wants to "achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens".
Colbert proceeded to dance on the grave of the failed bill: "And after all his campaign promises, nothing", Colbert said.
President Trump's push for "clean coal" nearly makes sense, explained Stephen Colbert. "We're citizens, which means we own the store". You work for us, buddy.
