Stephen Colbert returned from vacation to the America of “covfefe.”
It’s still Trump country and in his lexicon — never mind those Justice Department attorneys begging him not to say it — what the president demands, on Twitter, is a “TRAVEL BAN [all caps in original]. What he doesn’t want is “the watered down, politically correct version” that Justice brought to the Supreme Court, “but the original travel ban.”
Beyond the infamous covfefe tweet were the mischievous messages that followed, as Trump urged the nation to “enjoy.”
Actually, there’s plenty to enjoy in the tragicomedy of Trump’s presidency — with Colbert interpreting the dark journey.
