Stephen Colbert uncovered a revealing moment for Donald Trump — one, as the Late Show host said, proves just how “pathetic” the former president really is.
In new audio played during Tuesday’s committee hearings, Jan. 6, Trump pressured Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
“I only need 11,000 votes,” Trump said during the post-election call. “Guys, I need 11,000 votes, give me a break.”
“This is just pathetic,” Colbert said after airing the audio. “He’s literally begging them to invent voices for him. It’s like watching an old man try to cheat an extra pancake at Denny’s.”
