Stephen Colbert rips apart Jeff Sessions for meeting with anti-gay group
Stephen Colbert absolutely annihilated US Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a secret meeting with an anti-gay group.
Sessions met with members of Alliance Defending Freedom, a ‘powerhouse Christian law firm’ set up to defend religious freedom, including the freedom to discriminate against LGBTI people.
The group have previously defended people who refused to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding. They’ve also wrote legislation aimed at keeping transgender people out of bathrooms.
Colbert said: ‘Earlier this week, Sessions spoke to an anti-LGBT hate group in a closed-door speech.
‘Closed door? C’mon guys, it’s 2017 – it’s ok to come out, let your hate flag fly!
‘You’re here, you fear, we’re used to it,’ he added.
But at the time of recording the episode, the details of the meeting were unclear. So Colbert brings it on himself to fill in the details of the meeting.
