What a week it was, and a somewhat tired Stephen Colbert undertook a rare Friday appearance to try to regain all of its nuances and news in a monologue.
Colbert opened up by rubbing his glasses and admitting that because of the long intensity, “whether my glasses are dirty or my corneas are no longer concentrating” had won.
The Late night The host divided the last week into Tuesday (“The funny night”) and Wednesday (“The bad day”).
“I wanted to talk about the winners who went to the Senate when those losers went to the Senate,” he quipped.
Colbert admitted that he loved touchscreens when doing election coverage in Georgia, although his own efforts to translate the numbers were a bit crude.
He also found time to pay tribute to newly elected Georgia Senator Jon Ossoff, or as Colbert called him, “The boy who demands bedtime has to be postponed to 9:15 pm.”
He also noted that even though she is now Vice President, Kamala Harris will essentially remain a Senator because she is often called upon to be the casting vote in a Senate divided along the 50-50 line. He noticed the irony of only paying her one job when she’s going to do two.
