Colbert Thinks Trump ‘Must Be so Proud’ of Bill Barr’s ‘Baldfaced Lie’ About Mueller Report (Video)

The Wrap Friday, 19 April 2019
Colbert Thinks Trump ‘Must Be so Proud’ of Bill Barr’s ‘Baldfaced Lie’ About Mueller Report (Video)Stephen Colbert talked about the release of the (highly redacted) full Mueller report on Thursday’s episode of “The Late Show” — and how Attorney General Bill Barr’s statements during a press conference earlier in the day sometimes didn’t reflect the report’s content.

For one example, Colbert noted the point when Barr was asked directly by a journalist if Mueller’s reason for not reaching a decision about whether Trump obstructed justice was related to the Justice Department’s longstanding guidance that a sitting president can’t be indicted. Barr said that “we specifically asked” Mueller about that, and that Mueller said it had nothing to do with it.

Colbert noted however that in the report, Mueller cited the policy and wrote “we recognize that a federal criminal accusation against a sitting President would place burdens on the President’s ability to govern.”

“So Barr stood up there,” Colbert continued, “and knowingly said a baldfaced lie. The President must be so proud.”

Colbert then launched into his Trump imitation. “Oh Billy, you’re like the son I never had. What? Three?” Colbert-as-Trump said. “That explains the guy with my name.”

There’s more, including a funny joke about the Federalist Papers. Watch the whole thing below:
