Colbert Mocks Lewandowski for Proclaiming It’s OK to Say ‘Merry Christmas’ Again
COLBERT: "Trump staffer and angry pencil eraser Corey Lewandowski says that since the election, we've become more free."
LEWANDOWSKI [clip]: "Merry Christmas, because Donald Trump is now the president. You can say it again. It's okay to say! It's not a pejorative word anymore!"
COLBERT: "Yep! You can say it again! I'm so glad that Donald Trump finally put an end to the "Happy Holidays" nonsense that's been forced on us by people like Donald Trump. But now that we're free, now that we're here, here goes. From all of us here at the "Late Show," M... M... Sorry, I'm out of practice after living under eight years of Obama's Sharia Law. Give me a second here. MM... MM... MMM... Murphy crankshaft. Nope help hold on, let me try again. Margy cliff notes. Wait, I will get this. Think of a happy childhood memory. MM... MM... Marvel clambake. Honestly, I think that's the best I'm gonna do. Jon?"
