Colbert discusses coronavirus: says he wishes we could go back to when ‘we were looking forward to impeaching Trump’

How did that work out for you?

Late night television host Stephen Colbert has had enough of living in the dark times surrounding the coronavirus. On his show last night, Colbert reminisced about the “good old days” when he and his fellow Democrats were “looking forward to impeaching” President Donald Trump.

“A few months ago was great, it was the holidays, I was drunk on eggnog, I was watching Cheer, I was falling in love with Baby Yoda,” Colbert said to open his show on Thursday night. “I was looking forward… I was looking forward to impeaching the president, remember that feeling? We’re going to get you, Trump! John Bolton is going to testify and Republicans are going to do the right thing!”

Republican senators ended up dashing the dreams of Democrats when they voted to acquit Trump in his impeachment trial.

“2020 has done the impossible… and made me nostalgic for 2019,” Colbert added, as his typically liberal audience laughed and cheered enthusiastically. Colbert should enjoy this reaction while he can, because starting next week, his show and all other late night television programs will not be filmed before live studio audiences because of the coronavirus, according to Breitbart News.

Colbert’s monologue serves as proof that Democrats were lying when they tried to pretend that they were taking pleasure out of trying to impeach Trump. Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats tried to pretend that the impeachment effort was a somber affair for them, but they could barely contain their excitement over it.

While it comes as no surprise that a liberal like Colbert, who takes pleasure out of bashing Trump on a nightly basis, would fondly reminisce about the impeachment witch hunt against the sitting U.S. president, it doesn’t make it any less despicable. This is the kind of hate that Trump has had to deal with every day since he was elected, which makes all that he has accomplished for this country since taking office all the more impressive.

We can’t wait to see Colbert’s reaction at the end of 2020, when Trump is reelected for a second term. I wonder what year Colbert will be reminiscing about then.
