Defensive Stephen Colbert Tries To Spin The Arrest Of His Staffers At The Capitol (VIDEO)

Last week, several staffers were arrested for being in one of the Capitol buildings when they weren’t supposed to be there.

Naturally, people on the right have been asking if they will be subjected to the same punishments as the J6 protesters and if not, why not?

Don’t we have equal justice under the law in America? Aren’t we supposed to have that?

Surprising absolutely no one, Stephen Colbert tried to spin the whole thing in his first appearance since the arrests.

It’s totally different you see, because it’s Colbert’s people, not nasty Trump supporters.

Colbert Spins Staff Arrests by Capitol Police as ‘First-Degree Puppetry,’ Blames ‘Putin’s Puppet’

On Monday’s Late Show, CBS host Stephen Colbert addressed the arrest of seven staffers filming after-hours in the Longworth House Office Building in his opening monologue. He made light of how they were committing “first-degree puppetry” and then blamed the sensitivity of the Capitol Police on “Putin’s puppet” for causing the January 6 riots.

Colbert explained that after two full days of filming in congressional office buildings, “After they’d finished their interviews, [my staffers] were doing some last-minute puppetry and jokey make-em-ups in a hallway, when Triumph and my folks were approached and detained by Capitol Police.” He didn’t address Fox News reporting his team had been “escorted out of the Jan. 6 committee hearing earlier in the day because they did not have proper press credentials.”

But he did mock Fox News this way: “The Capitol Police are much more cautious than they were, say, 18 months ago, and for a very good reason. If you don’t know what that reason is, I know what news network you watch.” The crowd laughed and roared.

It doesn’t matter what Colbert says. This is an obvious double standard.

We either have laws or we don’t. A person’s politics and connections aren’t supposed to matter.
