This is a very special Shark Week, and Stephen Colbert celebrated on Monday night with a finorah and a blessing.
What makes this Shark Week different from all the ones before? This is the first to take place since Stormy Daniels said that during Shark Week 2007, she met President Trump at his Los Angeles hotel room, where they watched a documentary about shark attacks. "Or, as the kids call it, Netflix and krill," Colbert said. He then rolled out the finorah (yes, it's a menorah with a shark on it), and lit the first candle. "Oh blessed art thou, king of the sea, who maketh Donald Trump strangely randy," Colbert intoned.
Colbert then brought up the various Michael Cohen tapes in the news, including the 12 recordings seized by FBI agents in April now in the hands of federal prosecutors, plus the secret audio of Cohen's conversation with Trump about payments to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who said she had an affair with Trump that ended in 2007. "At this point, Nixon is going to rise from the dead and say, 'I'm suing you for copyright infringement,'" Colbert said. Watch the video below. Catherine Garcia
