The president posted a couple of tweets on January 1 that particularly delighted the late-night host, including one about the “Deep State Justice Department.” What makes the Justice Department, which is under the executive branch, part of the Deep State? Who knows?! The statement was reversed, but Colbert still had a chuckle about it. Welcome to the New Year.
