After tweeting about the "False Acquisitions" Democrats are using to "destroy" Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump also flubbed "accusations" when defending Kavanaugh at the U.N. on Tuesday, Stephen Colbert said on Tuesday's Late Show. Things got weird when Trump asked the Colombian president to agree that the Kavanaugh sexual assault accusations are nonsense and a little iffy when he mocked one of Kavanaugh's accusers.
"In other tales of justice, today Bill Cosby was sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison for sexual assault," Colbert said. "At this point, obviously, no one can defend Bill Cosby — unless you are his publicist," who made some pretty bold comparisons. "If Cosby is like Jesus," he said, "that means in three days he'll be back prowling the streets."
Cosby went straight to jail, Jimmy Kimmel noted on Kimmel Live, and "TMZ did a little research, and they found out that his first meal in jail will include pudding. It's all ... it's like Hakuna Matata." He also laughed at Trump's "False Acquisitions" tweet, but "for me, the scariest part of that tweet is it stayed up for 10 minutes," Kimmel said. "We now know it takes 10 full minutes for someone to be able to get to the president, turn off Fox News, dodge the fried chicken leg hurtling toward their head, and tell him, 'Hey, you spelled accusations wrong.'" That will be an eternity when Trump tweets an insult at a nuclear-armed adversary, he added. "Basically, a hilarious typo just explained how we're all going to die one of these days."
Like his late-night colleagues, Kimmel was puzzled by Kavanaugh's assertion to Fox News that he was a virgin well into college. "Why he admitted this, I don't know," he said. "I mean, does he think that helps? Basically what he told us is that for much of his adolescent life he was dangerously horny." Watch below. Peter Weber
