Stephen Colbert Dubs Dred Scott Decision Worse Than Trump Presidency
Provided By - Vidible on June 18, 2018
Stephen Colbert doesn't consider Donald Trump’s presidency the U.S.'s biggest mistake. America has made mistakes before this — I would say the Dred Scott decision's still worse than what we have going on right now. The late night host is unsure as to whether the nation will truly recover from a Trump presidency. “I hope that we will. I don't know how. I don't know how we recover from choosing that man to be the leader of this country. I don't know how we recover our ethical or moral standing in the world, because this is an abdication of an American moral philosophy. We've completely abandoned it."
