Stephen Colbert Goes Off on New York Post for Deleting E. Jean Carroll Trump Rape Story

Tuesday night, on the eve of broadcasting live during the Democratic debates, The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert took on President Trump’s “very, very bad” response to writer E. Jean Carroll’s allegation that the then-real estate tycoon raped her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the mid-‘90s.

“I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened, OK?” Trump responded.

“So it didn’t happen because she’s not his type,” offered Colbert. “That is the sound of a man realizing in mid-sentence that he’s not talking to Billy Bush.”

Colbert then pivoted to the mainstream media’s poor coverage of Carroll’s disturbing allegation against the president of the United States.

“This story didn’t get a lot of coverage when it first broke. For example, The New York Times originally buried the story in the ‘Books’ section, which is smart—they realized it’s the one place the president would never look,” cracked Colbert. “Then there’s our friends at the New York Post, which ran a story about E. Jean Carroll that was mysteriously scrubbed from the tabloid’s website on Friday afternoon. Nobody knew what happened to the link until today, when it was revealed that the Post editor is a supporter of President Trump and ordered the removal of the story.”
