Stephen Colbert made it clear Thursday night that he didn’t really want to spend most of his Late Show monologue talking about QAnon Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. But he didn’t really feel like he had a choice.
After touching on the absurdly petty letter that Donald Trump sent to the Screen Actors Guild earlier in the day, the host said, “Speaking of acting, I can’t wait to talk about Georgia representative and woman waving ‘Heil, neighbor,’ Marjorie Taylor Greene.”
Colbert spent the next several minutes tearing apart the speech that Greene gave to her colleagues before the House voted to strip her of her committee assignments. In response to her sudden denunciation of “dangerous” misinformation, he said, “You’re right, it’s dangerous to mix a truth, like you saying ‘I used to believe in QAnon’ and you lying, like ‘Now I don’t anymore.’”
