In new audio played during Tuesday’s Jan. 6 committee hearings, Trump pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
“I only need 11,000 votes,” Trump said during the phone call after the election. “Fellas, I need 11,000 votes, give me a break.”
“That is just pathetic,” Colbert said after airing the audio. “He’s literally begging them to invent votes for him. It’s like watching an old man try to mooch an extra pancake at the Denny’s.”
