Colbert started by saying: “Ladies and gentlemen, before we get started, I just want to take a moment to talk about the attack today in Alexandria, Virginia. Once again we’re all shocked in mind and soul by a mass shooting, this time targeting apparently Republican congressmen, and I pray to God that everybody pulls through.’’
“Violence of any kind is never justified, and is the last refuge of the incompetent. Thankfully, none of the members or their staff, or police were killed today, and I will say this: Even in the horror of this day, there was reason to take heart in bipartisan responses like this,” he said.
Stephen Colbert also went on to show a clip of Nancy Pelosi claiming that the occasion will bring us together and not separate us.
“So, I just want to say thank you to the congressional leadership, and to the president for responding to this act of terror in a way that gives us hope, that whatever our differences, we will always be the United States of America,” said Colbert.
Even though he is thanking the right people, his response is as phony as Nancy Pelosi’s, who just one day later changed her mind and declared that Republicans and President Trump were to blame for the shooting.
