Late night celebrated “Comey Day” with jokes.
Stephen Colbert kicked off Thursday night’s broadcast of CBS’ “The Late Show” by wishing everyone a “Happy St. Comey’s Day” following former FBI chief James Comey’s anticipated testimony to Congress regarding his interactions with President Donald Trump.
“Everybody was looking forward to the former FBI director testifying about all the juicy details of his meetings with Donald Trump,” Colbert said. “Remember, Comey wrote everything down and all his memos are going to be collected in his new children’s book, ‘James and the Guilty Orange.'”
During his opening monologue, Colbert also made light of many parts of the hearing, from Comey’s height to the former FBI director saying Trump’s comments about him and the FBI were “lies, plain and simple.”
