As is conventional, Stephen Colbert celebrated the State of the Union with a dwell present heavy on response to (and mock of) the yearly presidential handle.
“Let me inform you, girls and gents, it was a curler coaster trip of rip roaring reasonableness!” he mentioned of Joe Biden’s speech.
Colbert adopted with the compulsory dictator joke conflating Trump and Putin earlier than turning the highlight again on Ukraine.
The Late Present host highlighted the shifting second when Biden singled out Ukrainian ambassador to the U.S. Oksana Markarova within the crowd and requested everybody in attendance to face and applaud her nation’s bravery. It was the type of unifying second Biden hoped to realize together with his speech.
“It was a shifting second of bipartisan unity,” mentioned Colbert, “particularly contemplating the final time Congress stood up that quick collectively they had been those fleeing a fascist invasion.”
Watch the monologue under.
“A curler coaster trip of rip roaring reasonableness.”
