SCARBOROUGH: It got to a point where Kellyanne would keep coming out, and everything she said was disproven like five minutes later. And it wasn’t disproven by a fact checker. It was somebody else in the administration that would come out and actually say, “Well, actually, no, that’s not true.”
COLBERT: There’s a quicker way to say that entire sentence.
SCARBOROUGH: Which is?
COLBERT: She just lied.
SCARBOROUGH: Well, yes, exactly.
When Mr. Colbert asked his guest whether he thought Mr. Trump would make it through a full term, Mr. Scarborough hedged.
SCARBOROUGH: Well, I think if he continues the way he continued the first month, I just don’t think it’s sustainable. And I don’t think it’ll last four years.
COLBERT: Or will we just get used to it? Will we just like build a callus on our soul? Our soul will begin to look like a big toe.
SCARBOROUGH: Well, I think we’ve already done that. I think we’ve already died a million deaths already the first month.
Mr. Scarborough concluded his conversation with Mr. Colbert by joining Jon Batiste and Stay Human for a performance of “(What’s So Funny ’Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding.”
