Colbert on Donald Trump Jr.: ‘He’s Deep Throating Himself’

On The Late Show and The Daily Show, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah (respectively) mercilessly ripped into Donald Trump Jr. for his part in an email scandal that’s quickly turning into much more.

Amid speculation that he met in June 2016 with a Russian lawyer with connections to the Kremlin who was said to have damaging information on Hillary Clinton, Trump Jr. wanted to clear his name. To do this, he tweeted out a chain of emails in which he and a man named Rob Goldstone planned the meetings. These emails may point to collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, which led Colbert to compare Trump Jr. to Deep Throat, the secret informant whose tips blew the Watergate scandal wide open.

“Just a reminder, these emails were leaked by Donald Trump Jr. himself. He’s his own Deep Throat,” Colbert said. “He’s Deep Throating himself.”

Noah began by asking, “What do you get when you cross a Russian, an email, and an idiot?” He later referred to Trump Jr. as a “two-legged brain foreclosure.”

Colbert finished by making a chalkboard drawing connecting the dots from the Trump campaign to the Russian side of things, with Trump Jr. in the middle. When he was done, he had made a picture of Donald Trump Jr. behind bars.
