Stephen Colbert is praising a Republican lawmaker for standing up to President Donald Trump.
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) on Saturday became the first Republican in Congress to call for Trump’s impeachment.
Trump responded by attacking Amash, now in his fifth term, as a “loser” and a “total lightweight.”
That prompted Colbert to offer Amash’s fellow Republicans in Congress an apology... of sorts.
His mea culpa still managed to include words like “spineless” and “toadies.”
