#EndorseThis: Stephen Colbert Books The Infamous Presidential Suite At Moscow Ritz-Carlton

It’s the Christmas morning of The Late Show‘s “Russia Week.” Host Stephen Colbert finally aired the segment he’d been teasing for a week:

According to an unsubstantiated dossier that BuzzFeed News had the abandon to publish in full in January, President Trump (then just a questionably wealthy pariah) hired a gaggle of prostitutes to “perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him” on the bed in the Ritz-Carlton Moscow’s “presidential suite” — room 1101 — where then-President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama had stayed during a diplomatic visit to Russia.

Since the dossier’s release, little has developed in relation to Trump’s “sexual perversion.” That is, until Colbert checked into the infamous suite, which he found to be “soaked in history.”

#EndorseThis: Stephen Colbert Hangs Out With An Oligarch

As part of the Late Show‘s “Russia Week,” host Stephen Colbert palled around with oligarch Mikhail Prokhorov, the multi-billionaire owner of the Brooklyn Nets (“Nyets”) who made his fortune after buying a state-owned nickel mine “for just pennies on the nickel.”

After hanging out at his mansion outside Moscow, Prokhorov shows Colbert his private Tescao training center, where he says he develops his “oligarch balance.”
