Stephen Colbert was playfully at a loss for words Thursday. (See his monologue below.)
In the latest Hail Mary from President Donald Trump and his allies to annul President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, the suit seeks to invalidate the results of four swing states that Biden won and that had allowed more mail-in voting. Republican attorneys general from 17 states that Trump carried urged the court to take on the far-fetched case brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
“Hmmm, I forget, what do you call it when a bunch of states band together to say the other states elected the wrong president?” Colbert said, feigning a memory lapse. “Some sort of grouping or … confederation of states!”
“I see why they kept all those flags now.”
