Stephen Colbert Discovers Wearing Sexy Kitty Ears Is a Great Way to Process This Election

Well, day two certainly feels a lot like day one, doesn’t it? Stephen Colbert was on hand to do a live show on election night, and he’s back again processing the coming Donald Trump presidency in his monologue on The Late Show. Colbert asks a lot of the questions you might be asking yourself: Is this a dream? Is it all that ayahuasca I just took? If you’re a parent, you might be wondering how you explain the results to your kid. “If your child asks the ultimate question, ‘Why do bad things happen to good people?’ You’ll finally have the answer,” he says. “The Electoral College.” Colbert doesn’t have a lot of answers (and neither does God, apparently), but he has discovered that wearing sexy kitty ears gets him through tough times. So you know, things aren’t all bad.
