Stephen Colbert Prays For A Trump Reboot Of Richard Nixon's Final Month In Office

President Donald Trump will be spending 16 days at Mar-a-Lago. The "Late Show" host wonders if that could be a sign.

Stephen Colbert, host of “The Late Show,” waxed a little historical on his last show before the Christmas holiday.

“The president reportedly will spend 16 days at Mar-a-Lago during the holidays,” Colbert said of President Donald Trump.

“Here’s fun,” Colbert added. “Coincidentally, Richard Nixon went to Mar-a-Lago a month before he resigned the presidency.”

Nixon, who was under threat of impeachment, announced his resignation on Aug. 8, 1974, and it became effective the following day. 

On Friday night’s show, Colbert raised his eyes upward and intoned: “Please! Oh, history, please repeat yourself! We did our part by not learning from you.”
