On Thursday’s episode of The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert continued his Russia Week string of episodes, showing highlights of his recent trip to Moscow.
While there, Colbert stayed in Donald Trump’s infamous hotel room in Russia, where he was on a mission to find a recording that allegedly shows President Donald Trump watching two prostitutes urinate on a bed in the presidential suite of the The Ritz-Carlton — or according to Colbert, the fabled “pee pee tape.”
The alleged recording was reported in January when BuzzFeed leaked documents about the president’s deep ties to Russia. It claimed that Russian intelligence has footage of the incident and could use it to blackmail Trump.
In the monologue, Colbert expressed, “Now, the wildest accusations in that dossier have never been confirmed. But as far as I know, nobody has tried,” adding, “They said that’s too salacious for us to even look into. But it’s the only part we care about!” Colbert then promptly began chanting “pee-pee tape,” a phrase he repeated throughout the entirety of his trip.
Additionally during his stay, Colbert managed to interview Andrei Soldatov — a journalist and surveillance expert — about the alleged pee incident, where he managed to keep a straight face.
The real highlight, however, is when Colbert finally makes it into the presidential suite at The Ritz-Carlton in Moscow, and while he didn’t find evidence of a golden shower, Colbert did find something else on the wall — “Fake news. Never happened.”
