EXCERPT:

COLBERT: “And Trump saying we should investigate the Obama Administration and he knows exactly what they did. [In Trump’s voice] ‘The reason that President Obama did nothing about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win dot, dot, dot, dot, dot, and did not want to rock the boat. He didn’t choke, he colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and crooked Hillary no good.’ Hold on. Nobody is accusing Obama of colluding or obstructing. That’s your deal, okay? Okay? You can’t accuse him of your thing. Okay? That would be like someone accusing you of inspiring hope. It just doesn’t fit. All right. He also— it wouldn’t be right. It wouldn’t be right. It would not be right.”
