Colbert Ties Falwell Jr.’s Sex Scandal to His Support for Trump: ‘Sounds Like Blackmail’

‘Last year, Michael Cohen claimed he helped bury personal photographs for Jerry Falwell Jr.’

RUSH EXCERPT:

COLBERT: “Fallwell says he’s moving on from Liberty University, predicting I see a role in other areas. I don’t know what it is yet, but I’m not done. This happened for a reason. I like to think it’s because God wanted to hear me tell these jokes. This would all be a minor case of religious and sexual hypocrisy if it wasn’t for one troubling detail. Last year, Michael Cohen claimed he helped bury personal photographs for Jerry Falwell Jr. Before the evangelical leader backed Trump. Hm... Sounds like blackmail. In fact, here’s Donald Trump shaking the hand of the pool boy— and no surprise— Falwell is watching.”
