Keegan-Michael Key Brings Back Luther, Obama's Anger Translator
"I would say you people make me sick, but I can't afford that because I wouldn't have no damn insurance."
Stephen Colbert took advantage of having Keegan-Michael Key on The Late Show to ask the Key & Peele alum to bring back his Luther character, former President Barack Obama's anger translator.
Colbert pointed out that since President Donald Trump has taken office, Obama has only said "a couple of sentences" about policy, but he asked Key to revive Luther to translate them. This was after the two talked about mocking Trump and Key said it's "hard [to find material] when a person is the most ideal comic version of themselves."
After Colbert read a comment from Obama about healthcare, Key widened his eyes and shouted. "C'mon people. Trumpcare? More like Trump don't care." He yelled about putting together the Affordable Care Act, spending a "full year in open bipartisan sessions" and letting everybody have a say.
"Y'all gonna kill some people," said Key's Luther, accusing Republicans of hiding in a dungeon making an evil concoction. "I would say you people make me sick, but I can't afford that because I wouldn't have no damn insurance."
Key's Luther was really exasperated about how Obama spent eight years tearing walls down, only to have Trump want to put one up. And not just any wall, a transparent wall so that allegedly, people can see if drugs are being hoisted over the wall and injuring people.
"I've seen a lot of movies from the '80s, and I ain't never seen nobody die from no damn head injury. Scarface, nope. Less Than Zero, nope. Cheech & Chong, drugs yes, but head injuries, no, no and no," said Luther. "And 60 pounds of drugs? Who they got throwing these things over the wall? You telling me John Cena got a Mexican cousin over there?"
"Every one of y'all in the White House has lost your damn mind."
