Colbert on ‘Soul Pulverizing’ Debate: How Can We Possibly Do This Two More Times?
COLBERT: “After an hour and a half of soul-pulverizing menace, I feel like I did coming out of “Star wars” episode one “The phantom menace”: How can we possibly do this two more times? Ultimately, I think the American people, they were hurt tonight. And it— and if you look online, they’re angry. Because this is a serious moment. Where human lives and the future of this irreplaceable country is on the line. And I know that Chris Wallace says he’s not a fact checker. But after one and a half hours of chaos and lies, I can say there’s one statement tonight that was absolutely true.”
