Stephen Colbert poked fun at MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Wednesday’s Late Show, following Maddow’s show on Tuesday night when she revealed two of President Donald Trump’s tax forms.
“I hold in my hand something very significant,” Colbert said, dressed in Maddow’s signature blazer in front of a graphic that resembled the backdrop used on Maddow’s show. “It is a joke, a joke that we have confirmed has been heard by Donald Trump. We believe this is the first time any joke dealing with Donald Trump has been released.”
Colbert rambled on, poking fun at Maddow’s nearly 20-minute-long preamble intro on Tuesday’s program before revealing the tax forms, an act that made Maddow the subject of much Twitter mockery.
“Why did the chicken …,” Colbert teased before adding, “but first a word on chickens” and segueing into a lengthy informational rant on the fowls and pulled out a live chicken in a necktie.
