In a recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, host Stephen Colbert wasted no time delving into the historic news of the Senate taking up two articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. This marks only the second time in American history that a Cabinet member has faced impeachment, with the first being Secretary of War William Belknap back in 1876. The impeachment process, which requires the Senate to set aside all legislative business and hold a trial, is sure to be a knockdown, drag-out fight.

With the Senate trial in progress, Colbert dedicated the entire episode to discussing the latest developments. However, to everyone’s surprise, the Senate quickly voted to end the impeachment trial of Secretary Mayorkas, and Colbert found himself at a loss for what to talk about next. He took the opportunity to discuss Republican Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, who is facing potential ousting from his position. Johnson recently went on Fox Business to emphasize his support from former President Trump, but Colbert couldn’t help but point out the irony of Trump’s loyalty, joking that it was just like his wedding vows.

Meanwhile, former President Trump found himself in court for his hush money trial, where seven jurors were selected. Although their identities remain secret, Colbert playfully speculated about their thoughts on Trump. He also highlighted Trump’s campaign stop at a convenience store, joking about the association inviting him and the eclectic items found on the shelves. Trump didn’t miss the opportunity to criticize late-night host Jimmy Kimmel on his new social media platform, claiming Kimmel suffered from “Trump derangement syndrome.”

On a lighter note, the New York Times recently published an article titled “The Biden Guide to Dressing Younger.” It praised President Joe Biden‘s fashion choices, citing his reliance on solid color ties and shirts with a heightened collar to create a more youthful appearance. Experts claimed that Biden understands the difference between getting old and looking old. Colbert humorously mentioned that Biden’s fashion tactics even included the sartorial technique known as “Big Woi” to shave a few years off his look.

As the episode came to a close, Colbert teased the upcoming guest lineup which included John Lithgow and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. With all the excitement in the world of politics and entertainment, there’s no doubt that The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will continue to serve as a hub for lively discussions and entertaining interviews.

Overall, this episode of The Late Show provided fans with a dose of political news and comedic commentary. Colbert’s wit and energetic delivery kept viewers engaged throughout, ensuring that they’ll stay tuned in for the next episode of this beloved chat show.
