‘They Lied Under Oath’: Stephen Colbert Torches Supreme Court Justices In Blistering Monologue Accusing Them Of ‘Perjury’

During Tuesday’s edition of “The Late Show,” host Stephen Colbert unloaded on Supreme Court justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Amy Coney Barrett as he addressed the leaked draft opinion that shows the conservative judges have voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Colbert’s rant went on for nearly 10 minutes and his monologue drew bleeps from CBS censors as he hurled profanities at the justices.

“So congratulations, ladies,” Colbert told his viewers. “Decisions about what you can do with your body are now being made by four old dudes and a woman who thinks ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is a rom-com.”

Colbert went on to accuse the five justices of committing “perjury” for lying under oath during their confirmation hearings.

But “The Late Show” host saved some of his harshest criticism for Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who voted to confirm Trump-nominated justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, and said at the time she didn’t believe either would overturn the landmark abortion case.
