“The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert compared President Trump’s revised health care plan to HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” on Wednesday night’s episode. “A lot of your favorite characters are going to die without warning.”
In his opening monologue, Colbert said that Trump told GOP house members the midterm election could be a “bloodbath” if they don’t pass the revised healthcare bill. “Which would be terrible because their healthcare plan does not cover bloodbath.”
“Even with Donald Trump’s backing, this is going to be a tough road ahead,”he said.
Colbert addressed how Trump’s new healthcare plan is opposed by the AARP, saying: “You fools. You’ve awakened, the ancient ones.”
“For months now the elders have slumbered after sending one of their own to lead us, but now they stir, roused by a threat to the healthcare they once cherished,” Colbert said. “Don’t you know, they’re the ones who vote.”
