Every Late-Night Comedian Blasted Attorney General Jeff Sessions for His Forgetful Testimony (Video)
Inside Late-Night Shows

Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday, and late-night TV stars all took their best shots at one of Donald Trump's top cabinet member for his forgetfulness.

CBS host Stephen Colbert got a giggle that the AG “doesn’t recall” if Trump's former national security advisor Michael Flynn had any communication with Russian officials.

“Wait a second, everybody knows there was communication between Russia and Michael Flynn, that’s why he was fired,” Colbert joked. “Sessions really seems to know nothing, which explains why he was the first senator to endorse Trump.”

Here's what else Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden, Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien and Seth Meyers had to say on the subject.

“Jimmy Kimmel Live”

Kimmel was annoyed at how long the session felt because Sessions “dodged almost every interesting question that he was asked," so he decided to spice it up by pairing Sessions' audio with "Looney Tunes" for a “testimony the whole family can enjoy.”

“The Late Late Show with James Corden”

The CBS late-night host took another cartoon shot at Sessions for claiming he was confused as to who was actually testifying in the Russia investigation, so he showed a picture of the AG to clear things up.

“That’s a picture of the Boss Baby,” Corden said referring to Alec Baldwin’s animated comedy of a talking baby.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”

Fallon was shocked that Sessions was using the oldest trick in the book while under oath.

“For those of you who don’t know, ‘doesn’t recall’ is a Washington term meaning, ‘I definitely recall and I’m in trouble,” Fallon said.

"Late Night with Seth Meyers"

Meyers focused in on one particular answer: Sessions said that Sen. Al Franken asked a “rambling question” during his confirmation hearing, which is when he said he didn’t have contact with Russia - a claim that was later found to be a lie.

“If Sessions thought Franken’s question was rambling, then he must just black out when he talks to Trump,” Meyers said.

“The Late Show with Stephn Colbert”

Colbert chose to focus on Sessions' appearance, joking that the politician is the “last surviving Little Rascal."

“As soon as Sessions sat down, everyone had the same question: Are you now or have you ever hidden any pots of gold?” Colbert said.

But the light at the end of the tunnel for Colbert was that he was finally able to figure out why he was the first senator to endorse Trump: “Sessions really seems to know nothing."


The tallest late-night comedian in the game also poked fun at Sessions' appearance, telling his viewers that the AG "has a nervous tick, almost like a poker tell, that comes out at times when he may be lying."
