Trump Attacked Yovanovitch On Twitter While She Testified On Live TV



( PIANO RIFF )
WELCOME TO "THE LATE SHOW." I'M YOUR HOST STEPHEN COLBERT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
TRUMP'S IMPEACHMENT IS REALLY HEATING UP, IT'S GEARING UP,
IT'S RAMPING UP. THE GEARS ARE HOT FROM ALL THE
RAMPING THEY'RE DOING. THERE ARE LIVE HEARINGS
TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY, AND THURSDAY. THE FATE OF OUR NATION HANGS IN
THE BALANCE, AND THAT'S WHY, ALL THIS WEEK, WE'LL HAVE COMPLETE
COVERAGE OF… MY AMAZING TRIP TO NEW ZEALAND! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
UNBELIEVABLE! ONCE IN A LIFETIME! >> Jon: THE GREAT ESCAPE. >> Stephen: EVERY NIGHT, WE'LL
SHARE A DIFFERENT STORY FROM MY TRIP. TONIGHT, MY FASCINATING DAY WITH
NEW ZEALAND PRIME MINISTER, JACINDA ARDERN. WHY NEW ZEALAND? WHY DID I GO TO NEW ZEALAND? 'CAUSE IT'S AS FAR AWAY AS I
COULD GET FROM OUR NEWS WITHOUT GETTING PECKED TO DEATH BY
PENGUINS. ( LAUGHTER )
BUT FIRST, I'LL CATCH YOU UP ON ALL THE DETAILS
OF TRUMP'S STICKY WICKET IN TONIGHT'S EDITION OF "DON AND
THE GIANT IMPEACH." ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>> MOMMY, TAKE ME HOME! >> Stephen: FOR THOSE JUST
JOINING US, IT LOOKS LIKE DONALD TRUMP WITHHELD MILITARY AID TO
UKRAINE TO TRY TO PRESSURE THAT COUNTRY INTO ANNOUNCING A BOGUS
INVESTIGATION OF JOE BIDEN. AND I'M HAPPY TO SAY, PEOPLE
UNDERSTAND THAT STORY. IN A NEW POLL, 70% OF AMERICANS
SAY TRUMP'S ACTIONS TIED TO UKRAINE WERE WRONG. IT'S NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO GET
70% OF AMERICANS TO AGREE ON ANYTHING. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
70%! >> Jon: THAT'S A LOT OF
PEOPLE. >> Stephen: THE ONLY OTHER ONE
I CAN THINK OF IS "DON'T EAT TACO BELL BEFORE GETTING ON A
ROLLERCOASTER." ( LAUGHTER )
BUT HERE'S A WEIRD PART OF THIS POLL: OF THAT 70% WHO THINK
TRUMP'S ACTIONS ARE WRONG, THE NUMBER WHO DON'T WANT HIM
REMOVED FROM OFFICE IS 19%. THAT MEANS ONE IN FIVE AMERICANS
ADMIRE WRONGNESS. ( LAUGHTER )
EXPLAINS HIS NEW CAMPAIGN SLOGAN, "TRUMP 2020: LET'S THROW
CINDERBLOCKS OFF THE OVERPASS!" LOOKS LIKE THE BIGGEST DAY IS
GOING TO BE WEDNESDAY, WHEN CONGRESS WILL HEAR FROM U.S. AMBASSADOR TO THE E.U. AND LORD
BALDEMORT, GORDON SONDLAND. SONDLAND IS IN DEEP. DURING A MEETING AT THE WHITE
HOUSE, ACCORDING TO A SOURCE IN THE ROOM, SONDLAND "DEMANDED
FEROCIOUSLY, THAT THE UKRAINIANS OPEN THE BIDEN INVESTIGATIONS." SONDLAND "GOT VERY EMOTIONAL,"
ADDING THAT "THERE WAS LOTS OF YELLING." A TEMPER TANTRUM? DO YOU EXPECT ME TO BELIEVE THAT
A MAN WHO LOOKS LIKE THIS IS A GIANT BABY? ( LAUGHTER )
JIM, THAT'S GOT TO BE DOCTORED. CAN WE SEE THE ORIGINAL? THERE YOU GO. THERE YOU GO. OF COURSE, THE BIGGEST SONDLAND
SLIP-UP WAS WHEN HE CALLED DONALD TRUMP FROM A PUBLIC
RESTAURANT IN KIEV, WHERE SEVERAL WITNESSES HEARD TRUMP
OVER THE PHONE DEMANDING AN INVESTIGATION OF BIDEN. THAT'S A DIRECT LINK. ON FRIDAY, THE HOUSE HEARD FROM
ONE OF THOSE WITNESSES, COUNSELOR FOR POLITICAL AFFAIRS
IN UKRAINE AND BOYFRIEND CONFIDENT THAT BUILD-A-BEAR WAS
THE GIFT YOU WANTED, DAVID HOLMES. HOLMES CONFIRMED THAT HE
OVERHEARD SONDLAND'S PHONE CALL, AND ADDED THIS COLORFUL DETAIL:
IN THE CALL, HE HEARD SONDLAND TELL TRUMP, "PRESIDENT ZELENSKIY
LOVES YOUR ASS." ( LAUGHTER )
OH, WHO DOESN'T? JIMMY, GIVE US A TASTE! MM-MMM! ( APPLAUSE )
YEAH! THAT'S LIKE TWO HAMS STUFFED IN
A SURGICAL GLOVE. ( LAUGHTER )
LIKE A PLASTIC TABLECLOTH FULL OF RICE PUDDING. LIKE TWO LOAVES OF POPPIN' FRESH
MICROWAVED IN A CHRISTENING GOWN. HOLMES' TESTIMONY ALSO SHOWED
THAT TRUMP'S PRIORITY WAS NOT NATIONAL SECURITY, BUT
INVESTIGATING THE BIDENS. TRUMP EVEN ASKED SONDLAND:
(AS TRUMP) "SO, HE'S GONNA DO THE
INVESTIGATION?" TO WHICH SONDLAND REPLIED
"HE'S GONNA DO IT," ADDING THAT ZELENSKY WILL DO "ANYTHING YOU
ASK HIM TO." (AS TRUMP)
"ANYTHING? IS THIS A GENIE SITUATION? THEN I WANT UNLIMITED WISHES. AND UNLIMITED POPCORN SHRIMP." ( LAUGHTER )
THE OTHER BIG TESTIMONY ON FRIDAY CAME FROM FORMER
AMBASSADOR TO UKRAINE AND CURRENT AMBASSADOR TO THE
MATRIX, MARIE YOVANOVITCH. YOVANOVITCH IS A DECORATED
— ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
YES! PLUG INTO THE MACHINES! YOVANOVITCH IS A DECORATED
DIPLOMAT WITH A 33-YEAR CAREER WHO WAS OUSTED AFTER A SMEAR
CAMPAIGN INVOLVING RUDY GIULIANI. IF THERE'S ONE THING RUDY
GIULIANI KNOWS, IT'S HOW TO DESTROY A REPUTATION. ( LAUGHTER )
SO FAR, JUST HIS, BUT HE BURNED IT TO THE GROUND. ( LAUGHTER )
BURN THIS MOTHER OUT! ON FRIDAY, WHILE YOVANOVITCH WAS
TESTIFYING, TRUMP TWEETED, "EVERYWHERE MARIE YOVANOVITCH
WENT TURNED BAD. SHE STARTED OFF IN SOMALIA, HOW
DID THAT GO? THEN FAST FORWARD TO UKRAINE,
WHERE THE NEW UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT SPOKE UNFAVORABLY
ABOUT HER IN MY SECOND PHONE CALL WITH HIM." (AS TRUMP)
"NOW SHE'S BACK IN THE UNITED STATES, AND THE PRESIDENT IS
BEING IMPEACHED. COINCIDENCE? WAY TO GO, MARIE." ( LAUGHTER )
NOW — WHEN HIS TWEET LANDED, CHAIRMAN
ADAM SCHIFF READ IT INTO THE RECORD AND ASKED THE AMBASSADOR
FOR HER REACTION. >> AMBASSADOR YOVANOVITCH, AS WE
SIT HERE TESTIFYING, THE PRESIDENT IS ATTACKING YOU ON
TWITTER. THE PRESIDENT IN REAL TIME IS
ATTACKING YOU. WHAT EFFECT DO YOU THINK THAT
HAS ON OTHER WITNESSES WILLINGNESS TO COME FORWARD AND
EXPOSE WRONGDOING? >> WELL, IT IS VERY
INTIMIDATING. >> STEPHEN: WOW, HE'S READING
TRUMP'S NASTY COMMENT RIGHT TO HER ON LIVE TV. HE'S THE ANDY COHEN OF CONGRESS. (AS ANDY COHEN)
"AMBASSADOR YOVANOVITCH, THE PRESIDENT JUST PUBLICLY ATTACKED
YOU. I'M GOING TO HAND YOU THIS GLASS
OF CHARDONNAY AND ASK, IS THERE ANYONE WHOSE FACE YOU'D LIKE TO
TOSS IT IN WHILE YELLING, 'YOU DON'T KNOW ME, BITCH'?"
( LAUGHTER ) ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
OKAY? OKAY? ( PIANO RIFF )
THE HOUSE ALSO RELEASED A TRANSCRIPT OF THE TESTIMONY FROM
ADVISOR TO VICE PRESIDENT PENCE AND STORMTROOPER LOOKING FOR HER
HELMET, JENNIFER WILLIAMS. WILLIAMS WAS LISTENING IN ON THE
JULY 25 PHONE CALL, AND TESTIFIED THAT TRUMP'S BEHAVIOR
STRUCK HER AS "UNUSUAL" AND INAPPROPRIATE. WELL, WHICH IS IT, JENNIFER? BECAUSE, FOR TRUMP,
INAPPROPRIATE IS THE USUAL. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
TRUMP ATTACKED THIS WITNESS TOO: "TELL JENNIFER WILLIAMS, WHOEVER
THAT IS, TO READ BOTH TRANSCRIPTS OF THE PRESIDENTIAL
CALLS AND SEE THE JUST RELEASED 'STSTEMENT' FROM UKRAINE." YES! YES, JENNIFER! YES, READ THE "STSTEMENT" BEFORE
YOU TESTIFY AGAINST THE PRSPRSTENT! ( LAUGHTER )

In a blatant attempt at witness intimidation, the President tweeted insults at former Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, while she testified at the House impeachment inquiry. #Monologue #Impeachment #Colbert

  1. 19% of 70% is not "1 in 5" (or 20%). It's 0.66 in 5. I think that they just worded his monologue wrong. It's not "of that 70%…", it's "19% of *all respondents*". That would make "1 in 5" correct(/close). The 19% may be an exclusive subset of the 70%, but saying "of that 70%, 19% said…" is 0.7 x 0.19 = 0.133 (or 13.3%) of all americans, which is closer to 1 in 10 than 1 in 5.

  2. I was at the beach the other day and saw Biden in the surf being attacked by a shark. I look around for help but just then trump and pence turned up in a speed boat and proceeded to beat the shark with bats then pulled Biden into the boat. When they docked the boat I approached them to see if I could help and over heard trump turn to pence and say "what a great day shark fishing, how's the bait holding up"

  3. Trump's latest lie about Marie Jovanovitch is that she "refused" to hang his picture in the US embassy in Kiev. In actuality, the delay in hanging his picture happened in embassies throughout the world because Trump failed to sit for the portrait and it wasn't sent to embassies for nine months after he became president. The president's peculiar proclivity for lying, even about trivia, seems to indicate some form of cognitive dysfunction.

  4. mocking trump's typo's actually looks bad for the left and isnt very noteworthy anyways. it only confirms trump's 'wing it' mentality, which is basically his only argument in this whole affair.

  5. Only deluded people would impeach Trump. What would you impeach him for? Would you impach him for your delusions? or would you impeach him for being conditional on foreign aid (whihc he wasn't but has been common practise of the USA for 100 years), or would you impeach him for investigating Biden/ Ukraine corruption (which one would actually want to investigate). Like I said these are deluded fuck heads, and yes you actually need to start swearing for these people to actually stop being so brainwashed and switch their actual brains on. Your side aleady look like fools to anyone who isn't 100% distored in their peception and can't see reality, yet this propananga about smoking guns and absolute evidence bombs keeps being repeated in the mainstream media. One has to be an absolute retard to believe the mainstream media these days. This is going to collapse into a pile of dust and following it Trump will order an invesitgation into the deep state that is doing all of this.

  6. Yovanovitch refused to hang Trump's portrait for 2 1/2 years. This shows her to be a liar when she claimed to be non political.
    Any one in her position who refuses to hang the portrait of the President is NOT politically neutral. She deserved firing.But gets teaching job at Georgetown.

  7. Trump again lashes out at Yovanovitch – POLITICO
    https://www.politico.com › news › donald-trump-yovanovitch-072865
    – It took like a year and a half, two years to get the picture up.” … The claim that Yovanovitch refused to hang Trump's portrait echoes similar …
    Yovanovitch was not neutral. She was an Obama & Hillary supporter. SHE WAS NOT NEUTRAL

  8. For someone who isn't worried about all the damning evidence against him; he sure has no problem in going on social media and attacking these people who have not only served our country in the military like Lt.Col Vindman or people who have been public servants for years. It just goes to show that he's more worried about what will happen to him and when all is said and done; it's time to drain this sess pool of crime, corruption and lies out of the White House for good. Of course his only reason for going after these witnesses is that if he sees anyone who goes against him is deemed as a threat to him and all those who are directly involved.

  9. Adam Schiff is one cool cat, bringing up the Tweet right in the hearing. Marie Yovanovich is really a hero, like everyone testifying. Imagine, your own President, treating you with such disrespect just because you want to tell the truth and serve your country. What an abominable man. And I have to say – kudos to Nancy Pelosi for her brilliant strategy. Many Dems were itching to start impeachment much earlier, but she insisted on waiting until she could be sure that public opinion would support them. And she is totally vindicated: Trump forced their hand. She is one badass leader. She could be President, no problem.
