“The Late Show” host, shocked that an estimated 48.6% of Georgia voters supported Walker in the runoff election, poked fun at the race, which marked the first time a Democratic president saw the Senate gain a seat for their party since 1962. He dusted off an envelope “sealed with wax” and pulled out joke after joke about the runoff, which Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock won on Tuesday.
“Warnock has won Georgia. It’s fitting he’s a reverend, because when I hear that all I can say is thank God,” Colbert quipped.
“This is a tough break for Walker, though. It will take him a couple of days to understand what has happened.”
He continued: “With this loss, Walker is supposed to return to his previous job, lying about having previous jobs. But on the bright side, it gives him more time to spend with his family and more time to figure out who that is.”
