Late-night host Stephen Colbert “took the gloves off” and went into a nearly three-minute long skit this week on Hillary Clinton’s integrity.

“F*** it, I gotta take the gloves off,” the comedian told his audience Monday night. “The Late Show” host then began a series of pop-culture analogies to demonstrate the former secretary of state’s alleged dishonesty.

“Secretary Clinton, you are so untrustworthy that Beyoncé is working on a concept about you,” Mr. Colbert said. “Come on. Come on, Hillary. You knew that people think you’re untrustworthy, and then you did something untrustworthy. That’s like Richard Gere going to the pet store and hovering around the gerbil aisle. You look so shady right now that FIFA wants to hire you. […] I wouldn’t trust you with Secret deodorant.”

The comedian then said that Mrs. Clinton might want to check her email server for fortune cookies because “I’m guessing there’s been a lot of Chinese take-out.”

FBI Director James B. Comey recently said Mrs. Clinton was “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information,” during her tenure as President Obama’s top diplomat.

“Seven email chains concern matters that were classified at the Top Secret/Special Access Program level when they were sent and received,” Mr. Comey said during a nationally televised press conference on July 5. “These chains involved Secretary Clinton both sending emails about those matters and receiving emails from others about the same matters. There is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position, or in the position of those government employees with whom she was corresponding about these matters, should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation.”

The State Department will not prosecute the former secretary of state for her decision to run the nation’s most sensitive documents through a secret email server inside her New York home.
