Stephen Colbert Is Furious That Congress Reached A Deal On The Budget

Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert is furious that Congress reached a bipartisan deal on the federal budget that staves off another damaging government shutdown.

“Americans sent Repulicans to Washington to accomplish one thing: zero things,” he stated on Thursday night’s ‘The Colbert Report.’ “But with this bipartisan budget we’ll have no chance of another government shutdown for two whole years.”

“You fools! You can’t leave our national parks open that long, it’ll give the wolves time to unionize!” he added.
