#EndorseThis: Colbert Lights Up Sondland Bombshell
Yes, Stephen Colbert puts it succinctly when he says that Gordon Sondland, the European Union ambassador, “spilled the T” on his boss Donald Trump. Testifying before the House Intelligence Committee, Sondland offered what Colbert calls the “historically heroic” excuse: We were just following orders, imposing a quid pro quo on military assistance and White House support for Ukraine.
Colbert performs a journalistic service by juxtaposing Trump’s absurd claim that he “wanted nothing” from Ukraine with the headlines showing that the whistleblower complaint was filed that same day. No wonder Sondland said the president – usually so sunny – was in a bad mood!
