Trump faces at least 17 different court cases against his administration, his businesses and himself, according to a count by Wired’s Garrett Graff, who described the situation as “a legal assault unlike anything previously seen by any president.”
Stephen Colbert, who has been eagerly tracking developments in the Russia investigation, joked that this was “quite a distinction for the president.”
“The walls are clearly closing in on Trump. And after all those cheeseburgers, the walls don’t have very far to go.” — STEPHEN COLBERT
Colbert later talked about the similarly scandal-scarred Ryan Zinke, who resigned on Saturday as secretary of the interior.
“He had so many scandals that the White House officials told him he had until the end of the year to leave or be fired. That is impressive. Getting fired for ethics violations in the Trump administration is like being fired from the Rockettes for kicking.” — STEPHEN COLBERT
