Stephen Colbert Calls For Election Do-Over Following New Russian Hacking Claims

“Somebody find Jeb and wake him up!"

Stephen Colbert wants a rerun of the 2016 presidential election

On Tuesday’s “Late Show,” he dissected new claims that Russia attempted to influence the vote in President Donald Trump’s favor by gaining access to computers at voting software companies in the days leading up to the ballot.

“Who really knows who won November 8th now?” Colbert asked. “I mean, other than [Russian President] Vladimir Putin.”

“I’m a little rusty on my Constitution, but I guess that means new election?” he added, to cheers from his studio audience.

“Let’s just get the band back together,” Colbert quipped. “Somebody find Jeb [Bush] and wake him up! I don’t know where he is, check the mild salsa aisle.”
