GOP-Controlled Senate Finds Trump Not Guilty, But Mitt Romney Honors His Oath And Votes To Convict


WELCOME, ONE AND ALL. PLEASE HAVE A SEAT. FOLKS, WELCOME ONE AND ALL, IN
HERE, OUT THERE, ALL AROUND THE WORLD TO “THE L “THE LATE SHOW.” IN THE
I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. LET’S GET RIGHT TO IT. THE BIG STORY EVERYONE IS
TALKING ABOUT: A COYOTE AND A BADGER ARE FRIENDS! LOOK, HE’S SAYING, “COME ON,
BUDDY, LET’S GO!” AND THEY’RE OFF ON AN ADVENTURE! THEY’RE TEAMING UP TO FINALLY
TAKE DOWN THAT ROAD RUNNER– UNLESS THE ROAD RUNNER ALSO HA
MADE A FRIEND. MAYBE IT’S A POSSUM. DOESN’T THAT WARM YOUR HEART A
LITTLE BIT? IF THOSE TWO ANIMALS CAN GET
ALONG, MAYBE WE AS AMERICANS, DESPITE OUR DIFFERENCES, CAN
ALSO HAVE A BADGER AS A FRIEND.( LAUGHTER )
WELL, THAT’S ALL FOR TONIGHT. THANKS FOR WATCHING. STAY TUNED FOR JAMES CORDEN! GOOD NIGHT!( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
♪ ♪ ♪>>Stephen: ALL RIGHT, OKAY. I’M SORRY, I’M BEING TOLD
CONTRACTUALLY I’M OBLIGATED TO REMAIN CONSCIOUS AND CONTINUE
TALKING. JUST REMEMBER, THIS NEXT PART
WASN’T MY IDEA. FOLKS, I HOPE YOU’RE SITTING
DOWN, BECAUSE I’VE GOT SOME TERRIBLE NEWS: THE NEWS.( LAUGHTER )
AND I’LL TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT IN THE FINAL INSTALLMENT OF OUR
NOT-LONG-ENOUGH RUNNING SERIES: “DON AND THE GIANT IMPEACH.”>>CONSTITUTION! CONSTITUTION! PERFECT PHONE CALL. PERFECT PHONE CALL. IT’S TRUE. TODAY, THE U.S. SENATE ACQUITTED
DONALD TRUMP. SO THERE IT IS, OKAY. IT’S OFFICIAL: NOTHING MEANS
ANYTHING. RIGHT IS WRONG. UP IS DOWN. MISSOURI IS KANSAS.( LAUGHTER )
NOW WE KNOW THAT ASKING A FOREIGN POWER TO INTERFERE IN
OUR ELECTION IS THE NEW NORMAL. THE DEMOCRATS HAVE NO CHOICE BUT
TO DO THE SAME THING.( AS BERNIE )
“RUSSIA, IF YOU’RE LISTENING. I COULD REALLY USE THAT PEE PEE
TAPE. MILK, MILK, LEMONADE. AROUND THE CORNER, JUSTICE IS
MADE!”( LAUGHTER )
NOW, SENATE REPUBLICANS CLAIM THEY’RE NOT SETTING THE
PRECEDENT THAT PRESIDENTS ARE ABOVE THE LAW, BECAUSE TRUMP IS
GOING TO CHANGE.>>I THINK THAT HE KNOWS NOW
THAT IF HE IS TRYING TO DO CERTAIN THINGS, WHETHER IT’S
FERRETING OUT CORRUPTION THERE, IN AFGHANISTAN, WHATEVER IT IS,
HE NEEDS TO GO THROUGH THE PROPER CHANNELS.>>IF A CALL LIKE THAT GETS YOU
AN IMPEACHMENT, I WOULD THINK HE WOULD THINK TWICE BEFORE HE DID
IT AGAIN.>>I THINK HE’LL BE INSTRUCTED
BY WHAT HAS OCCURRED HERE.>>Stephen: OH, HE’LL BE
INSTRUCTED BY WHAT OCCURRED HERE, BECAUSE NOTHING OCCURRED
HERE.( AS TRUMP )
“YOU KNOW THERE’S A SAYING ABOUT THOSE WHO FAIL TO LEARN FROM
HISTORY. I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS. I FAILED HISTORY.” THE ONLY LESSON TRUMP EVER
LEARNS IS THAT HE GETS AWAY WITH EVERYTHING: MULTIPLE
BANKRUPTCIES– NOTHING. MULTIPLE SEXUAL ASSAULT
ACCUSATIONS– NOTHING. HE’S IN PERFECT HEALTH DESPITE
EATING LIKE A RAT BEHIND THE BOB’S BIG BOY. NOTHING!( LAUGHTER )
THE SENATOR WHO HAS MOST SUCCESSFULLY TALKED HERSELF INTO
BELIEVING THAT SHE BELIEVES IN SOMETHING IS MAINE REPUBLICAN
SUSAN COLLINS, WHO SAID THIS LAST NIGHT SAID THIS:
>>HE WAS IMPEACHED, AND THERE HAS BEEN CRITICISM BY BOTH
REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC SENATORS OF HIS CALL. I BELIEVE THAT HE WILL BE MUCH
MORE CAUTIOUS IN THE FUTURE.>>Stephen: (AS SUSAN COLLINS)
“IN THE FUTURE, HE’LL BE MORE CAUTIOUS AND NOT GET CAUGHT. BY THE WAY, MR. PRESIDENT, IF
YOU NEED HELP GETTING RID OF A BODY, I’M YOUR GIRL. THE SECRET IS REMOVING THE HANDS
AND TEETH, THEN KILLING THE GUY WHO SOLD YOU THE SHOVEL.( LAUGHTER )
THERE’S A REASON THAT THE MASTER OF HORROR STEPHEN KING LIVES IN
MAINE. I SEEM REALLY FOLKSY, BUT IF YOU
LISTEN CLOSELY TO WHAT I’M JUSTIFYING, SUDDENLY I SEEM LIKE
A SKIN BAG FILLED WITH WRITHING TENTACLES.”( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )
( CHEERS )
A LITTLE BIT. LITTLE BIT. BUT THAT WAS YESTERDAY SUSAN
COLLINS. TODAY SUSAN COLLINS SEES THINGS
A LITTLE MORE CLEARLY. SHE NOW SAYS SHE PROBABLY
SHOULDN’T HAVE SAID THAT SHE BELIEVES TRUMP HAS LEARNED HIS
LESSONS FROM THE FALLOUT FROM HIS DEALINGS WITH UKRAINE AND
IMPEACHMENT. SHE NOW SAYS A BETTER WORD WOULD
HAVE BEEN “HOPES.” YES, AND A BETTER WORD FOR
“SENATOR” SUSAN COLLINS WOULD BE “FORMER SENATOR” SUSAN COLLINS.( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY. THERE’S THE DOOR. NOW, ONE DEMOCRAT WHO FOLKS
WEREN’T SURE WOULD VOTE TO CONVICT WAS ALABAMA SENATOR DOUG
JONES, GIVEN HOW POPULAR THE PRESIDENT IS IN ALABAMA. BUT HE DID. AND JONES DIDN’T WANT TOO MUCH
CREDIT.>>I AM MINDFUL, MR. PRESIDENT,
THAT I AM STANDING AT A DESK THAT ONCE WAS USED BY
JOHN F. KENNEDY, WHO FAMOUSLY WROTE “PROFILES IN COURAGE,” AND
THERE WILL BE SO MANY WHO WILL SIMPLY LOOK AT WHAT I’M DOING
TODAY AND SAY IT IS A PROFILE IN COURAGE.>>Stephen: (AS JONES)
“YES, SO MANY WILL CALL THIS A PROFILE IN COURAGE. SO MANY WILL ALSO SAY THAT I
SHOULD BE ON THE COVER OF ‘TIME MAGAZINE.’
MANY MORE WILL SAY I SHOULD BE ‘PEOPLE’S SEXIEST MAN ALIVE.’
I UNDERSTAND WHERE THESE SO MANY ARE COMING FROM. BUT PLEASE, DON’T NAME AN
AIRPORT IN NEW YORK AFTER ME.” THE VOTE ON OBSTRUCTION OF
CONGRESS WAS 53-47, PURE PARTISAN SPLIT. BUT ON THE FIRST CHARGE, ON THE
ABUSE OF POWER, THE VOTE WAS 52-48. AND ON THIS DARK DAY, THERE WAS
SOMEONE I WOULD LIKE TO THANK FOR GIVING ME A RAY OF HOPE:
UTAH SENATOR AND DAD EXPLAINING VENTURE CAPITALISM TO YOUR PROM
DATE, MITT ROMNEY. ROMNEY HAS NEVER BEEN A
FAR-RIGHT POLITICIAN–( APPLAUSE )
MITT’S NEVER BEEN A REALLY FAR-RIGHT POLITICIAN OR A
FAR-RIGHT REPUBLICAN. BUT IT WAS STILL SHOCKING TO
HEAR HIM SAY THIS:>>THE GREAT QUESTION THE
CONSTITUTION TASKS SENATORS TO ANSWER IS WHETHER THE PRESIDENT
COMMITTED AN ACT SO EXTREME AND EGREGIOUS THAT IT RISES TO THE
LEVEL OF A HIGH CRIME AND MISDEMEANOR. YES, HE DID.>>Stephen: YES. HE. DID. THANK YOU. THREE LITTLE WORDS CAN SOMETIMES
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
YES. IT’S NOT HARD.>>Jon: NO.>>Stephen: IT’S NOT MUCH. IT SEEMS SMALL, BUT THREE LITTLE
WORDS CAN SOMETIMES BE SO POWERFUL. YES, HE DID. I LOVE YOU. CHILI CHEESE FRIES.( LAUGHTER )
LET’S GET HIGH.( LAUGHTER )
ROMNEY SPOKE THE TRUTH.>>CORRUPTING AN ELECTION TO
KEEP ONESELF IN OFFICE IS PERHAPS THE MOST ABUSIVE AND
DESTRUCTIVE VIOLATION OF ONE’S OATH OF OFFICE THAT I CAN
IMAGINE.>>Stephen: TO WHICH TRUMP
REPLIED:( AS TRUMP )
“WOW, YOU DON’T HAVE MUCH OF AN IMAGINATION, DO YOU, MITT? BECAUSE NOW THAT I’M ACQUITTED,
I’M GOING TO VIOLATE THAT OATH IN WAYS THAT WOULD MAKE MY OLD
FRIEND JEFFREY EPSTEIN PUKE INTO A DUMPSTER.” REALLY? TOO SOON? ROMNEY SUMMED UP THE PRESIDENT’S
CRIMES EASILY.>>THE PRESIDENT’S PURPOSE WAS
PERSONAL AND POLITICAL. ACCORDINGLY, THE PRESIDENT IS
GUILTY OF AN APPALLING ABUSE OF PUBLIC TRUST.>>Stephen: YES! THAT’S WHAT THE IMPEACHMENT
MANAGERS WERE SAYING THE WHOLE TIME! SOMEONE WAS ACTUALLY LISTENING
TO THE SUBSTITUTE TEACHER, MR. SCHIFF. YOU GOT THROUGH TO THE TALL,
QUIET KID WHO HAS TROUBLE MAKING FRIENDS.( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )
IN THE BACK OF THE ROOM! QUIET. HANDSOME.>>Jon: COME ON!>>Stephen: HERE’S THE THING. HERE’S THE THING– THIS IS
IMPORTANT. MITT KNOWS THIS ISN’T GOING TO
MAKE HIM ANY FRIENDS IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.>>I’M AWARE THAT THERE ARE
PEOPLE IN MY PARTY AND IN MY STATE WHO WILL STRENUOUSLY
DISAPPROVE OF MY DECISION. AND IN SOME QUARTERS, I WILL BE
VEHEMENTLY DENOUNCED. I’M SURE TO HEAR ABUSE FROM THE
PRESIDENT AND HIS SUPPORTERS.>>Stephen: HE’S RIGHT. THE PRESIDENT WILL GO AFTER HIM. BUT I DOUBT TRUMP’S GOING TO
FIND ANY UKRAINIAN DIRT ON MITT ROMNEY.( AS UKRAINIAN )
“MR. PRESIDENT, YES, WE HAVE IT ON GOOD AUTHORITY THAT ONCE, IN
1997, MITT ROMNEY TOOK A SIP OF COFFEE THAT HE THOUGHT WAS
DECAF.”( LAUGHTER )
“YEAH, YEAH. AH, YEAH.” YEAH-DA. BUT ROMNEY IS WILLING TO PUT UP
WITH WHATEVER THE BLOWBACK FOR THIS DECISION IS.>>DOES ANYONE SERIOUSLY BELIEVE
THAT I WOULD CONSENT TO THESE CONSEQUENCES, OTHER THAN FROM AN
INESCAPABLE CONVICTION THAT MY OATH BEFORE GOD DEMANDED OF ME?>>Stephen: YES, HIS FAITH
COMPELS HIM TO VOTE FOR IMPEACHMENT. AND IT MAKES SENSE BECAUSE THE
OLD TESTAMENT DOES SAY THAT YOU SHOULD WORSHIP GOD, NOT GOLDEN
COWS. SO WHY–
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
WHY– IT’S TRUE.>>Jon: COME ON, NOW!>>Stephen: SO WHY IS HE THE
LONE REPUBLICAN WILLING TO GO AGAINST THIS PRESIDENT THAT MANY
OTHER G.O.P. SENATORS HAVE ADMITTED IS GUILTY? MITT?>>AS A SENATOR-JUROR, I SWORE
AN OATH, BEFORE GOD, TO EXERCISE “IMPARTIAL JUSTICE.” I AM PROFOUNDLY RELIGIOUS. MY FAITH IS AT THE HEART OF WHO
I AM. I TAKE AN OATH BEFORE GOD AS
ENORMOUSLY CONSEQUENTIAL. WERE I TO IGNORE THE EVIDENCE
THAT HAS BEEN PRESENTED AND DISREGARD WHAT I BELIEVE MY OATH
AND THE CONSTITUTION DEMANDS OF ME FOR THE SAKE OF A PARTISAN
END, IT WOULD, I FEAR, EXPOSE MY CHARACTER TO HISTORY’S REBUKE
AND THE CENSURE OF MY OWN CONSCIENCE.>>Stephen: YOU KNOW, IN MY
OWN SMALL WAY I TRY TO HUFF MY FAITH. AND OVER THE YEARS I’VE MADE A
LOT OF FUN OF MITT ROMNEY, A LOT OF JOKES ABOUT HIM. THE DOG ON THE ROOF. WHO LET THE DOGS OUT? CORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE, MY
FRIEND. BINDERS FULL OF WOMEN. BUT– AND I MEAN THIS
SINCERELY– AFTER SEEING THAT SPEECH, I WOULD DO ALL THOSE
JOKES AGAIN BECAUSE THAT’S OATH I TOOK. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
BUT– BUT– BUT I DO WANT TO SAY THAT WAS AN INSPIRING SPEECH
BECAUSE HEARING MITT ROMNEY TAKE HIS OATH TO GOD SERIOUSLY WAS
LIKE FINDING WATER IN THE DESERT. BECAUSE WE KNOW REPUBLICANS ARE
LYING WHEN THEY SAY THAT TRUMP DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG OR THAT
MAYBE HE DID BUT HE SHOULDN’T BE REMOVED. EVERY PERSON WHO LEAVES THE
WHITE HOUSE AND WRITES A BOOK ABOUT IT, EVERY JOURNALIST WHO
GETS A PEEK BEHIND THE CURTAIN– LIKE THE TWO WE HAD LAST NIGHT–
TELL US THE REPUBLICANS PRIVATELY ARE HORRIFIED AND WANT
SOMEONE TO DO SOMETHING TO STOP HIM. BUT THEY DON’T HAVE THE BALLS TO
SAY THAT OUT LOUD WHEN IT MATTERS. THAT’S WHY AN OATH IS IMPORTANT. OATHS MAY NOT MEAN A LOT TO SOME
PEOPLE. BUT WHEN YOU TAKE AN OATH, YOU
SAY ONE THING AND THINK ANOTHER. YOU ARE ASKING GOD TO WITNESS,
ON THE PAIN OF YOUR IMMORTAL SOUL, THAT WHAT YOU WHISPER IN
YOUR HEART IS WHAT COMES OUT OF YOUR MOUTH BUT THOSE OF THESE
GRIEZ TALK OUT THEIR ASS. IN ROBERT BOLT’S “A MAN FOR ALL
SEASONS,” THE MAIN CHARACTER, THOMAS MORE, IS THE LONE VOICE
OPPOSING HENRY VIII, A BLOATED, GOLDEN CHILD, WHO NONE DARED
GAINSAY, WHO DESTROYED ANYONE WHO DID NOT FOLLOW HIM BLINDLY,
AND THEN WHEN THEY HADN’T DESTROYED, A LOT OF PEOPLE
FOLLOWED HIM BLINDLY ANYWAY. IN THE PLAY, MORE SAYS THIS TO
HIS DAUGHTER, “WHEN A MAN TAKES AN OATH, HE’S HOLDING HIS OWN
SELF IN HIS OWN HANDS, LIKE WATER. AND IF HE OPENS HIS FINGERS,
THEN, HE NEEDN’T HOPE TO FIND HIMSELF AGAIN.” WELL, WITH THE LONE EXCEPTION OF
MITT ROMNEY, I THINK THE REPUBLICANS HAVE JUST OPENED
THEIR FINGERS. THEY WILL BE MISSED. SO PLEASE JOIN ME IN THANKING
MITT ROMNEY FOR BEING HONEST, FOR NOT LYING TO US OR HIMSELF,
FOR SERVING THE CONSTITUTION RATHER THAN THAT MONSTROUS CHILD
IN THE WHITE HOUSE. WHY CAN’T HE BE PRESIDENT? THANKS, OBAMA.( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
AND, AGAIN, I DIDN’T WANT TO
TALK ABOUT ANY OF THAT STUFF. SO, JIM, LET’S GO BACK TO OUR
TOP STORY AGAIN BECAUSE WE HAVE A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU TONIGHT. JIM CARREY IS HERE. WHEN WE RETURN, “MEANWHILE!”

    Mitt Romney is homophobic and gross, but I do commend him for this. Still doesn’t make him a good guy. Pretty sure Romney only voted to remove him because he doesn’t like him on a personal level. Haven’t they had a feud for a while? I mean

  • YaakovVeYosef Mechonit

    When radical left-wing Obama-ite CNN Van Jones speaks sense you know that the Democrats are pathetically utterly in t r o u b l e.
    No, Mr. President TRUMP we the people are not tired of winning!
    Neither are the DEMONrats tired of losing. Stop losing leave 'em & join the winning team!

    I remember when Mitt mentioned Obama in his concession speech his followers booed. But Mitt told them to stop and be respectful and take this loss with grace and dignity. I might disagree with his beliefs but at the very least he's an honorable and dignified man who wanted to honor his oath and his duty to the American people.

    Let us not say anything anymore about this heresy against our democracy. Let us keep our vow in silence to action. Let us join Colbert and Mitt Romney together. Its time for action no more hot air like their daily chants. Let the sun shine truth on this evil this country is enduring. 🇺🇸💙

  • W G

    The republicans need to remember that turn-about is fair play. So now, we can ask China for dirt on ivanka trump (she doesn't deserve to be capitalized). Help us China!

  • Luciane Costa

    As much as I despise Trump mocking a handicapped reporter, I need to denounce the mocking of this Republican senator speech. I love Stephen, but he dropped the ball on this one.

  • Xendela B

    I never liked Mitt Romney, I saw his true colours before; but no one is perfect and it takes a person with humility to make adjustments through the years; which clearly he did. I am very proud of this man to take a courageous stand for what is right; knowing full well he will be ostracized by his colleagues, and Trump his going to do everything possible to derail him. But Mitt Romney, shall NEVER suffer shame for doing the right thing. None of the others can EVER say that. And when Trump find no use for a certain one of them, he will simply block him or her, and speak very bad things about that person. Dispite the sacrifice that individual made for him. Trump is unthankful; he feels godlike, hence the reason why he bullies not only the people here, but the allied nations {of which they are no longer taking anymore of his crap. France is the new head until a new and stable American president is back in control}. What a joke America have become in the world; 😣 'MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!'🤣 It was great and well respected until Trump came on the seen. Now, him, and his braindead clans, the skinheads, KKK, Nationalist, anti-government supporters, etc. Wallstreet, the big banks, him playing a long con on the country ( why he can't should his tax returns). And his planning another tax cut to pad his pockets and those Republicans senators, and the 1% of Americans, at the expense of the rest of us. Oh yes, he is really making America GREAT again; for him.

  • thetruestarking20000

    The one thing that is a certainty about Romney is that he is extremely religious. While I have disagreed heavily with his stances, I can see that it is completely within character for him to honor an oath he made to God. As we have seen, it is incredibly difficult to stand up for what you believe is right even when you know you will be abused for it. For that, you have earned my respect.

    Look! At the comments below. They are l likely Russian bot farms. Adversaries of our country. Please believe what is seen in our country. You know it's wrong. You know we must not allow this to continue. Please wake up🇺🇸. They will insult, bully, and slander all of us. Why write anything if I didn't care? I do, come back to the public libraries, back to community gatherings, back to common sense. There is no truth in a business man caring for your neighbors health and life. We will have destroyed liberty if we allow this to be normal because it's not. Even Jesus Christ (in gethsemane) said " they're coming. Sell your coat for a sword, they are coming.".

  • Kate Nguyen

    For Trump, he never think twice because he was confirmed that he is above the law. Those who thought Trump would learn the lesson: we become a lawless country because of your stupidity. Mr Romney is the very minority in the Republican Senate who is very respectful. He is a true American

  • mountain woman

    Trump's prayer. Thank you to the man in the sky. Thank you for McConnelly and his keeping the Republicans in line to take an oath and ignore what ever it means. Thank you for the money I can steal from the poor people of the USA to pay these Republicans to keep me in office and once again cheat at the polls. PS I don't believe in a GOD, I am a GOD. Trump.

  • King Peppy

    Lolz, I seem to recall the whole Trump will behave differently once he's sworn in argument before; so now he's going to behave differently when he's gotten away with Mueller and with extortion, please.

  • Kevin Street

    That monologue is amazing! It (and Mitt Romney's lone vote of dissent) is what future historians will refer to when history students ask "Why didn't they know how bad Trump was?" A lot of people did know, but not enough of the people who had the power to do something were brave enough to stand against him.

  • paul mattson

    Honestly I don’t know what all the fuss is about. We should all be proud of President Trump especially young men. In fact they should follow his example and have multiple divorces, sleep with porn stars, brag about assaulting women, and then pretend to be Christian. Mitt is a slime being married to the same woman, what a loser. If only Mitt had a friend like Trump had with Jeffrey Epstein now there was a classy guy, a known and convicted pedophile. Honestly Trump stands for all the values of Christians everywhere we really should have more like him.

  • 19 79

    Aren't you tired of crying for the hurt caused by all this? It hurts people and you all know it. They have suffered children even though they are misplaced. They are still children. You dont know me, but you can rest assured I have cried sincere tears for what we have become. I am sorry we must endure this. How power corrupts to abuse the innocent. Why?

  • Sherry Williams

    Mr. Colbert, you are balm. I cannot love you enough. Thank you. That one made me cry. I pray for your words to pierce what needs piercing.
    God bless you, your staff and your family!

  • 19 79

    Do we suppose a coincidence to coronavirus as a wake up to Gods providence. I'm not a religious extremist?! Jesus' one parable of contempt. If you shall suffer one of these….. You shall know them by their deeds…. To them he was a jew put to death… to us he was the lamb divine needed to fulfill the debt to pay for our eternity. Not through lies, hatred ,and slander, but through open arms even if you dont believe? Even satanists need God.

  • Joshua BURRIS

    I'm sorry but you don't get to admit he's guilty but hopefully learned his lesson their job was to decide his innocence or guilt not hope or believe he would or wouldnt do it again , to say he was guilty with no guilty verdict is telling Americans you dont recognize the law or your position in which you were elected

  • ry jo

    MITT …. THANK YOU FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING!!!!! I DIDNT BELIEVE YOU HAD IT IN YOU!!!

    ONLY ONE OUT OF THE WHOLE REPUBLICAN PARTY DID THE RIGHT THING!!!!!

  • Jorge Marañón

    Murder can get me into jail, but now I know. I will not do it again. I'd like to thank me for not doing anything wrong.

  • susan Cousineau

    Thank You for acknowledging MIT Romney. He wasn't my choice for President but I truly admire him for living his faith, and standing up for integrity. I only hope he's shamed every one of those wishy washy butt kissers who were afraid to vote their conscience for fear of losing popularity. I'd have hoped we'd left this behavior behind us when we left high school, but I guess not.

  • thatdudeca

    I love how Colbert has been preaching Trumps demise before he was even inaugurated and nothing has worked so far. You'll get Trump in the next witch hunt I'm sure!

  • Xkan Xhan

    Garbage… Romney did what he did for his own benefits to get rejected. What is he doing now to right his wrong and where was he before when it really mattered. Exactly..

  • Andy Manning

    WOW from across "the pond` ,what a wonderful and passionate show-even the warm words about Mr Romney.. Mitt,if i were an electorate of your State,or even the us,YOU would receive my vote,just for your honour.

  • Tre' Runyon

    You know your government is corrupt when you see the words “Upheld the Law and Backlash” in the same headline… Man F*ck this entire country at this point.

  • D Guitar

    Now the orange one has been let off, he will believe he can start again with a clean slate. This was the best publicity he could have had, and he’ll win again in November because of it.

  • W G

    Funny how Hitler and the Nazis called the news media fake news, as does Herr Trump. Hitler wanted to control the news media to help the Nazii? See history being repeated? So I wonder when Trump has meeting with his GOP wussies, do they say "Heil Trump?"

  • jd dj

    With a corrupt Republican Senate, really what did the American taxpayers expect?Hummm????So when someone sets out to rob a bank we should let them off because the next time the robber will know better not to make the same mistake that got him caught. AHHHHHHH Right??????

  • crazyps123

    Paths mean nothing to republicans when the pockets are being filled with the root of all evil trump is there god and no oath under anyone is going to stop them from supporting there ruler

  • Dan Elmore

    Is anyone surprised? Complaining about this is like complaining that the sun came up again today, and it is hot. We all knew what Trump was, thirty years ago, and we all knew senators are full of shit.

  • ydamor

    Thank you, Mitt Rodney! For being the only Republican Senator in this Congress without any fear that morally dubious deviancy personal pictures may be pumping out in Tweeter. Thank you, Mitt Rodney! For taking your oath to God, Family and Country to heart!

  • Indira Gutierrez

    So much respect for Senator Romney. He had the bravery to stand up for what he believed when all his peers turned their backs on him.

  • Kumar Mithilesh

    Great for #Americans, now they don't have to go to cast their #Vote or stand in line as some foreign government will decide who will be the next #president. i thought in my country (#India ) politicians #rig #election but america is next level. that means i can be the # President of #America if i can #rig the elections, #That's great. i will try someday.

  • Rossco The Red Roo

    In the interests of the nation, President Trump will now be called Emperor Lordship the Greatest Trump and let the Purge begin.

  • truth and common sense warrior

    Glad to see Trump aquitted of a crime that was never commited. The real crime are the democrat's ruining the ideals of the Constitution.
    Democrats are a pack of losers.

  • Jay Bloodworth

    Of course, the reason Romney did it was to gain favor with Dem's for 2024-2028. He wants to run again and he knows the GOP is going down after this shameful behavior.

  • Russell Graves

    BS, I sat in jail for 4 days one time for driving on a suspended license and Trump gets away with everything. I'm just going to have to start whooping GOP ass

  • Marten Johnston

    Susan Collins. WHAT A JOKE! She was elected Senator , but she has ZERO percent experience in politics. The only job this woman ever had was being a Bleach blonde, brain dead, news caster in Seattle, Washington, for a CBS affiliate, Kiro channel 7 news. A big fan of Trump, and like Trump, proof you don't need a brain to succeed in politics, just sell out, with hope of lots of money in your coffer.

  • K T

    I love you Stephen , you are the best . Delivering such a horror show every night and in an intelligent hilarious way.
    You are one of a kind exceptional.

  • Thad Wuj

    The guy still says "perfect phone call" and "total acquittal", it is absolutely ludicrous to think trump will change his behavior.

  • Shonem

    The Epstein joke is not too fitting considering friends of Colbert, Hillary, Biden, ect have actual ties to Epstein where as trump has next to none.
    Just saying, never forget that everyone in the political fore front tends to be scum, not just trump.

  • Thomas Parkin

    I wonder, did any of those who swore to their God an oath of service feel damned when they betrayed that oath in letting Trump off for his treachery.

    Do they feel the weight of their sin? Are they already trying to justify to God why they took an oath in his name in vain?

    Perhaps it would be better to remind them that they are damned rather than 'just' cowards and betrayers.
