Stephen Colbert Thanks Oprah for Andrew Puzder’s Withdrawal

The White House is riddled with scandal right now and while it’s a scary time, it’s also a very easy time to gather material for late night hosts. Stephen Colbert came on the show last night to talk about one thing but then had to draw attention to another. Stephen thought his monologue would be about the day’s one major news story. Then another one happened. Then a third.  The biggest story is that Andrew Puzder withdrew his nomination as Secretary of Labor.    The Carl’s Jr CEO was notorious for abusing his employees and opposing the minimum wage.  He’s also been accused of abusing women.  “Just to be clear, this is not a scandal,” Colbert joked. “He just wants to spend more time with Michael Flynn.”

Colbert says the real smoking gun that caused Puzder to drop out was a 1990 interview the CEO’s wife made, in which she alleged Puzder had assaulted her. That interview was done by none other than Oprah Winfrey, who sent in a tape of the interview to Congress. “Thank you, Lady O!” exclaimed a grateful Colbert. “By the way, follow-up question, no particular reason…do you do any shows in Russia? Because we could use some help.”

Unfortunately that wasn’t the only thing that Colbert brought up in last night’s opening monologue.  Kellyanne Conway seems to be weakening.  Michael Flynn got his last attention for a while.  It’s pretty hard to cover anything but the White House right now.
