Colbert theorized that Spicer was next on Trump's "to fire" list after the president told Fox News' Jeanine Pirro that Spicer would continue as his press secretary. (Of course, those tweets are as likely to be true as anything else uttered by Trump, meaning not too likely.) For press secretary Sean Spicer that requires covering up, obfuscating, and stonewalling Watergate-style, which is horrifying as White House conduct - and comedy gold for Colbert. 'No, not that scandal, or the one before that, or the one tomorrow'.
Regarding Trump's alleged request of Comey, Colbert said, "That is definitely obstruction of something". Oh, it's obstruction of jussst. a second I'll think of it'. Legal expert Alan Dershowitz said, "This is the most serious charge ever made against a sitting president".
"What's really sad about this is that Donald Trump is trying to impress the Russians with the fact that he's president, " Noah said. Ooh, ooh got anymore tapes of you and Billy Bush?' Colbert suggested, reference the infamous tape of Trump discussing grabbing women in certain parts.

Aides have said he hopes for a full explanation from the White House. On Tuesday, Colbert didn't want to let Trump off that easy.
"We all know this because apparently Comey wrote about the conversation in Federal Bureau of Investigation memos and allegedly 'created similar memos.about every phone call and meeting he had with the President.' Well, to paraphrase himself, Trump better hope there are tapes of their conversation, or really anything he needs to change the conversation to something, shall we say, less indicting", he said, quoting the Times.
Here's the thing about the Trump administration that makes me believe that Donald Trump will never get removed from office.
