Stephen Colbert Diagrams Donald Trump Jr.'s Future on His Chalkboard
What hidden message will the "Figure-It-Out-a-Tron" reveal this time?
As more details emerge about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer, Stephen Colbert continues to discuss the controversial sit-down on his show.
On Tuesday's show, Colbert teased the elder Trump for not expressing more support for his son.
"Of course the president leapt to his son's defense," joked Colbert, showing a picture of tumbleweeds drifting across Trump's Twitter page and then reading the sentence Trump gave Sarah Huckabee Sanders about his son being a "high-quality person."
Colbert also brought out his chalkboard, or the "Figure-It-Out-a-Tron," as he calls it, to help him diagram the controversy Trump Jr. is in involving Russia. He connected the four Trump officials who have admitted to meeting with Russian ambassadors during the campaign. He then connected Trump Jr.'s Russian contact to Putin through two additional people.
"In the middle of the whole conspiracy is Donald Trump Jr.," said Colbert. "You might say that he's the key to the whole thing."
The Late Show host drew a keyhole next to Trump's son, who is depicted as crying in the center of the chalkboard. He then connected the dots on the board "to see where this is going."
"Oh yeah, he's going to jail," said Colbert, standing next to a drawing of Donald Trump Jr. behind bars.
