President Trump has refused to release his tax returns for more than one reason. Yes, there’s the issue of Russian collusion. But to take inspiration from Chelsea Clinton and make a more populist claim, Americans can all agree that 45 is one vain buckaroo. Trump does not like the details of his failed business ventures being known to the public.

Stephen Colbert begins his latest monologue by lampooning the tweeter-in-chief’s ideas on a trade war. Never fear, we get to hear Backbone’s wonderful Trump impression. Soon, however, he can’t resist needling the First Family’s failure to properly address a crumbling Trump hotel in Panama.

Colbert’s crack about Donald Trump Jr. at 3:55 is worth the price of admission. And you’ll giggle for days at the name of the hotel owner. But stay tuned for a shocking, creepy expose of bad business ethics and fascist security teams.

This stuff is almost not funny anymore. Then again, it’s Stephen.

The Republican party seems to be having trouble trying to be the Christian Taliban and hating on LGBT people when they’ve got Rep. Madison Cawthorn in their ranks. His presence is making it so much harder for them to suppress their inner self-loathing--homosexuality and moral hypocrisy.

We all know politicians secretly love illicit drugs as much as taking bribes or paying off strippers they knocked up, so you have to give Cawthorn some credit for being honest. However, any creditability as a human he might have goes out the window when you consider his hatred and policies toward the LGBT community while, hypocritically enough, he engages in homosexual acts himself.
