Stephen Colbert Roasts Trump AG Matt Whitaker's ‘Masculine Toilet' for the Well-Endowed
CBSActing Attorney General Matt Whitaker's role as a board member for World Patent Marketing has been turning some heads this week, including those of House Democrats who want to investigate the company that allegedly scammed million of dollars from its customers.

Stephen Colbert dedicated the bulk of his monologue Wednesday night to the revelations about Whitaker's company, from its attempts to prove that Bigfoot is real to its belief in the viability of time travel.

"Whitaker's company was shut down for defrauding investors out of $26 million," Colbert told viewers. "So, this has all been fun, right? Bigfoot, time travel, fraud. You can't ask for more.

Rick Scott and incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. (The state's gubernatorial race between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum is also under recount, though the initial margin there is larger for DeSantis.)

The senate election recount has involved lawsuits and questions about how many provisional and mail-in ballots were determined invalid because of signature discrepancies.
