Colbert harassed by Russian state agents during trip, blames Trump


Stephen Colbert didn’t exactly receive a warm welcome on his trip to Russia last week.

The Late Show host made his first appearance since being back Monday, and was angry at the attention he received from Russian and American intelligence officials while overseas.

“I don’t know if you knew I was in Russia last week. You know who did know I was in Russia? Russian intelligence. Hardcore fans, evidently. Followed me everywhere,” Colbert reported.

“Also got some attention from American intelligence. Couple guys seemed to pop up wherever we went. But it’s important to keep your eye on a comedian, while he’s in Russia, doing jokes,” Colbert acknowledged.

Of course, Colbert couldn’t let the bit go without subtly accusing Trump of treason and the reason for being followed around.

“I could be giving state secrets to the Russians. Oh, wait, someone’s already got that covered.”
