Stephen Colbert parodies The Usual Suspects to show Trump, Russia connection
'The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was whatever Sean Spicer is saying.'
Stephen Colbert is channeling Keyser Söze to show the alleged connection between Donald Trump and the Russians.
On Wednesday’s episode of The Late Show, the host was digitally placed into the end of Bryan Singer’s The Usual Suspects. As he’s peppered with questions from Chazz Palminteri’s government agent Dave Kujan, Colbert, taking the place of Kevin Spacey, says he’s not hiding anything and that the answers are actually quite clear.
“Yes, I do know something,” he confesses. “And I’m telling you everything, you’re just not listening. I’ve been telling you for like a year, there’s something weird going on between Trump and the Russians. Don’t look at me, look at the board.”
He then vehemently suggests that the evidence is all there, as clips of Trump complimenting and defending Russian President Vladimir Putin can be heard.
Adding, “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was whatever Sean Spicer is saying.”
Then, just like in the movie, it all suddenly clicks for Kujan, who drops his coffee mug, only this time on the bottom is a logo for a Putin/Trump 2016 ticket.
The Late Show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.
