Now that Home Democrats have unveiled two articles of impeachment in opposition to President Donald Trump — one for abuse of energy and the opposite for obstruction of Congress — the late-night comedians have much more materials to work with.
CBS Late Present host Stephen Colbert welcomed the information on Tuesday night time. The truth is, Colbert and his workers have been so giddy that they spent the day writing an impeachment jingle.
After reminding the viewers that at present is “an historic day,” Colbert tossed to a clip of Home Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) explaining why Democrats determined to introduce the impeachment articles.
“The proof of the president’s misconduct is overwhelming and uncontested,” Schiff mentioned earlier than citing the transcript of Trump’s cellphone name to the Ukraine as proof. “The president’s personal phrases on July 25th, ‘I would love you to do us a favor although,’ lays so naked his intentions,” Schiff said.

Colbert’s response — gotcha. To have fun, The Late Present workers and the viewers belted out a model new tune, singing: “There’s only one factor that you could know, Trump mentioned: ‘Do us a favor although.’”
Over on Comedy Central’s The Every day Present, there was no music, simply shock.
“The Democrats have formally introduced articles of impeachment to indicate that apart from Steven Seagal, nobody is above the regulation,” host Trevor Noah mentioned as a picture from Seagal’s 1988 cop drama Above the Regulation was proven on display.
Nonetheless, Noah admitted he’s impressed with Trump.
“I didn’t assume he would make it three years. I’m not gonna lie,” the comic quipped. “Trump getting this far into his presidency with out being impeached is so much like when a canine by accident drives a automotive right into a tree. Yeah the canine crashed, however he made it eight blocks. That’s spectacular.”
