Stephen Colbert lets Zingers let go of rep Matt Gaetz in weekend speech

Stephen Colbert did not hold back Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) after the lawmaker appeared at a right-wing summit for students over the weekend.

“Gates was charged with trafficking an underage woman for sex, but it didn’t affect his speaking schedule,” Colbert said on “The Late Show” on Tuesday. “Over the weekend, he appeared at the ultra-conservative group Turning Point USA’s annual student action summit. Gaetz will attend anything that has the words “student” and “action in” in the title. »

During Gaetz’s speech, he slammed former Vice President Mike Pence, saying he was “not a leader” and would “never be president.”

“Oh, slam! Mike Pence just got schooled by a guy who’s not allowed within 50 feet of one,” Colbert joked.

Colbert then moved on to his next segment, adding, “In happier news than Matt Gaetz: Monkeypox.”

He made headlines over the weekend after making misogynistic remarks at the student summit, telling the crowd that women who fight for abortion rights are ugly and overweight.
