Stephen Colbert Can't Get His 'Late Show' Russia Week Story Straight

'When it comes to Don Jr, there's not much intelligence to counter': Colbert mocks Russian lawyer meeting

'When it comes to Don Jr, there's not much intelligence to counter': Colbert mocks Russian lawyer meeting

"I didn't think you'd find out, the whole week was supposed to be a secret". "I can't remember why".

"I recently met with a lot of Russians ..." And then I thought of the flawless person: not me. Meanwhile, it's steadily emerged that more and more people were at that Russian Rendezvous, including a former Soviet counterintelligence officer-turned-Russian lobbyist.

There was plenty more mentions of Russian Federation, plus both Trump Sr. and Jr. later in the show.

Trippier signs new deal with Tottenham Hotspur
The 26-year-old has committed himself to Spurs until 2022, and it comes off the back of an impressive end to last season during which he pushed Kyle Walker out of the side for some important games.

Colbert also took aim at the White House's declaration of "Made in America" week, noting that the announcement was possibly made to distract from the fact that Trump's "campaign was made in Russian Federation".

"I am so honored to be here right now because you are the No. 1 show here, and this is the state TV, so you're officially an employee of the state and we agreed that I would appear here on the show", Colbert told Urgant in front of his television audience.

A multi-talented and respected host, writer, producer, satirist and comedian, Colbert is well-known for his previous late night show, "The Colbert Report", which concluded on Friday, Dec. 18, 2014.

On the Streets of Chinatown, the Words of Chinese Dissident Liu Xiaobo

"Do you talk about Trump on your show?"

Who knows what's in store for the week ahead-but we're guessing if Colbert stayed in that infamous Ritz-Carlton suite, that it's a safe bet he did more in there than just sleep. My lawyer is telling me it's five Russian field pieces, Colbert began, sounding like presidential progeny. "I thought it would be great to cut out the middle man and tell the Russians myself: If anyone would like to work on my campaign in an unofficial capacity, please", he joked.

Mayor pulls red carpet from Donald
London Mayor Sadiq Khan is "not sure it is appropriate for our government to toll out the red carpet" for Donald Trump . Theresa May officially invited the Republican to visit Britain in January but firm details are yet to be established.
