Colbert's Late Show turns Trump's Georgia election call into a Stevie Wonder hit

The Late Show does Stevie Wonder doing Trump

But it was something special hearing him baldly plead with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) to "find" the specific number of votes he would need to beat President-elect Joe Biden in the state. Stephen Colbert's Late Show took that a step further Monday night by turning the content of Trump's call, recorded by Raffensperger's office, into a song, to the tune of Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called to Say I Love You."
