Patrick Stewart and Stephen Colbert use ‘Waiting for Godot’ to parody Trump’s healthcare rollout
‘If we wait it will come.’
Donald Trump promised voters that he planned to immediately repeal and replace “the disaster known as Obamacare” before becoming president, but more than a month into his term people are still waiting. And Stephen Colbert and Patrick Stewart know a thing or two about waiting.
Stewart, who starred in Waiting for Godot with Ian McKellen a few years back, reprises his role as he and Colbert parody the play to wait for a word on Trump’s plan to repeal and replace. What’s taking so long? Apparently, “Nobody knew health care could be so complicated.” But still they bide their time because it could happen soon.
If all that waiting doesn’t pan out, they’ve got a foolproof escape route, assuming the calculations are correct.
