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.”

Enjoy indeed.
