Stephen Colbert mocks Putin in evoking Russia’s most humiliating moment yet

Stephen Colbert has mocked Russian President Vladimir Putin as Russian forces continue to struggle in Ukraine, where they control just 10% of the country despite two weeks of relentless assault.

“Hey Poutine,” shouted the “Late Show” host. “How do you like turnips?”

Colbert said the Ukrainian military shot down 48 Russian planes and 80 helicopters, shot down hundreds of tanks and sank two warships.

“And take this,” he said. “The Ukrainians didn’t sink just any ship, because the Russian warship that was told to fuck off at Snake Island was destroyed.”

Colbert’s audience applauded.

“Maybe it wasn’t exactly what the Ukrainians wanted,” he said. “but it fell apart on its own.”
