#EndorseThis: Colbert Is Impressed By Sondland’s Memory Improvement
Only two weeks ago, as Stephen Colbert notes, the president tweeted triumphantly that Ambassador Gordon Sondland had testified “no quid pro quo” when he appeared before the House impeachment inquiry.
But on Monday, the repentant Sondland revised that testimony, “much the way that Sherman revised Atlanta.” He made that change after the contradictory account offered by Ambassador Bill Taylor had “refreshed my recollection,” Sondland said — or as Colbert put it, “made me remember one important detail: that I don’t want to go to jail for perjury.”
As far as Colbert is concerned, Sondland’s last-minute confession is “game set and match, the fat lady has sung…” Well, perhaps. But meanwhile this is as funny as impeachment gets.
