Television’s always reliably anti-Trump late-night hosts are not satisfied with the brand new FBI investigation — just concluded — into sexual misconduct allegations leveled against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“A lot of people were surprised that the FBI took less than a week to conduct their investigation. It’s like when your dad hears a a noise downstairs and shines a a flashlight, but in two seconds, he goes, ‘Ah, it’s nothing. Why don’t you go check it out, honey?’ I’m not saying the FBI investigation was short, but Trump lasted longer with Stormy Daniels,” Jimmy Fallon said on Thursday night, playing 100 percent to his audience.

“You are — you’re joining us on a day of passion and protests here in the not-so-United States. There were demonstrations today [Thursday] on Capitol Hill and in various cities. Many Americans are angry that Brett Kavanaugh is still a nominee for the Supreme Court,” added Jimmy Kimmel.

“The FBI report that was supposed to be limited to one week somehow got whittled down to five days,” he added. “It’s done, and when all was said and finished, the White House said they found no corroborating evidence of sexual assault. It’s amazing how much you won’t find when you don’t look for it. It really is.”

“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, not to be outdone, suggested the GOP has “bulldozed through the #MeToo movement” in an effort to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

The comedian added that the White House “loves” the results of the FBI investigation as the president has insisted on Kavanaugh’s innocence.

Stephen Colbert, for his part, said the FBI did not look hard enough into Kavanaugh’s drinking.

“Democrats say that the report is lacking in ‘report.’ For one thing, the sexual assaults he’s accused of both allegedly happened while he was hammered. And he said under oath that he was never a big drinker, but the White House admits that the FBI didn’t even investigate Kavanaugh’s drinking. What?” the comedian said.

“That’s like investigating an arson and saying, ‘We’re not really looking into the fire part, more wondering how this building disappeared.'”

Colbert continued, “That’s like investigating an arson and saying, ‘We’re not really looking into the fire part, more wondering how this building disappeared. Was it wizards? Is it a mirror thing? Haul in David Copperfield for questioning!'”

It’s no surprise to see these leftists expressing this kind of outrage over the FBI investigation into Kavanaugh — an investigation that clearly didn’t serve up the conclusion they all wanted.

They would have been satisfied only if law enforcement officials had come to the conclusion that these people decided on weeks ago — that Kavanaugh is guilty of every allegation lobbed his way.
