The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Happy Martin Luther King Day, everybody. For anyone who had today off, I hope you celebrated in the traditional way, by sleeping in so you too could have a dream.
Donald Trump observed the holiday by visiting the National Museum of African American History, or more accurately, canceling his visit to the National Museum of African American History. Although I guess in a way that might be good. The last thing we need is Trump learning more about segregation.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey is officially cutting down. Apparently, the circus doesn't think it could compete against a Trump presidency.
It's too bad; the circus employs 500 people who are now sadly packing their things and all getting to a single clown car. This is sad news for every kid threatening to run away and join the circus. And also sad news for every parent with a creepy old-fashioned kid who still says stuff like that.
Now, the circus won't officially close until May, so if you don’t get a chance to see it, you had 150 years. No one feels bad for you.
