In his opening monologue Wednesday night, Stephen Colbert addressed the scandals that have ravaged Rep. Matt Gaetz, mocking a particular claim by the Florida Republican in his “Fireband” memoir.
Gaetz sought to position himself as a particularly strong ally of former President Donald Trump in his book, released in fall 2020.
The host of “The Late Show” noted that Gaetz – who has denied accusations of sex trafficking and having sex with a 17-year-old girl – bragged in the book that he took calls Trump’s phone calls “when I was in my car, asleep in the middle of the night on my Longworth Office cot, on the throne, on planes, in nightclubs and … even in the throes of passion (yes, I answered).
“Thinking of Matt Gaetz having sex, I’m in it,” Colbert snapped, pretending to lift himself dry.
