Thursday morning, President Trump "attended a prayer breakfast where he quoted Christ's parable on the Mueller 'witch hunt,'" Stephen Colbert joked on Thursday's Late Show. Trump also "touched on this country's No. 1 spiritual concern, mall signage," and eventually "quoted from the Bible," awkwardly. Colbert showed that clip and laughed: "He has never read one word of the Bible before."

"My head is still spinning from yesterday's Senate testimony of Attorney General William Barr," Colbert said. "Barr's performance yesterday angered a lot of Democrats," and they're "especially upset that Barr lied to Congress," which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi noted is a crime, he added. "Yes, when the attorney general lies to Congress, it is a crime. When the president does it, it is the State of the Union."
