In a recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the host addressed the highly anticipated Biden-Trump rematch for the presidency. With Trump securing the nomination after sweeping last night’s primaries, Colbert acknowledged that it wasn’t the news many were hoping for. However, he emphasized that the American people will now be faced with a nearly eight-month-long general election battle.

Colbert humorously compared the upcoming rematch to legendary boxing matches, stating that it’s like “if Muhammad Ali fought Joe Frazier.” He also highlighted the fact that this will be the country’s first presidential rematch in nearly 70 years.

After Joe Biden secured the Democratic nomination, he released a well-produced campaign video urging supporters to “let’s go.” Colbert quipped that without an exclamation mark, it seems less inspirational and more like someone ready to leave a company party with no food left.

The Trump team took a different approach, with Trump himself addressing the nation in a video. Colbert humorously described Trump’s delivery as lacking enthusiasm, as if he had just woken up in the hallway of a hotel.

Switching gears, Colbert mentioned a recent event where the House GOP grilled special counsel Robert Mueller about Biden’s cognitive decline. Democrats defended Biden and tried to undercut the GOP’s message with a video montage showcasing Trump’s alleged mental feebleness. Colbert humorously referred to his own show’s practice of creating similar montages to showcase Trump’s moments of confusion.

Colbert went on to discuss Trump’s upcoming hush money trial, joking about Trump’s new legal strategy of claiming no wrongdoing because his lawyers were involved. He humorously referred to this as a little-known loophole, stating that “if there’s a lawyer there, nothing is a crime.”

To fund his legal bills, Trump has taken control of the Republican National Committee (RNC) and replaced the leadership with his allies, including his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump. Colbert playfully remarked that Lara’s qualifications to run a major party organization include none, except for marrying Eric Trump.

Colbert further highlighted how Lara wasted no time in making changes, such as firing longtime RNC staff members and initiating the first-ever election integrity division. He sarcastically remarked about the RNC’s decision to end the GOP minority outreach program, noting that they were about to “identify a minority to reach out to.”

Shifting gears again, Colbert discussed independent candidate RFK Jr., who recently caused controversy by admitting to flying on Jeffrey Epstein’s plane. Colbert humorously remarked that RFK Jr.‘s explanation was “refreshingly disturbing,” as he namedropped various controversial figures he has encountered in New York.

Surprisingly, RFK Jr. is reportedly considering Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers quarterback, for his vice-presidential candidate. Colbert joked about the possible risks of choosing Rodgers, considering his history of injuries.

Colbert ended the segment by teasing the upcoming guests on the show and piquing the audience’s interest with a promise of an important safety message from a famous friend.
