Stephen Colbert Rents Trump’s “Pee Pee Tape” Hotel Room in Russia

The “Late Show” host traveled to Moscow to investigate the infamous dossier.

As more bombshells drop in the multiple investigations looking into possible collusion between President Donald Trump’s associates and the Kremlin, Stephen Colbert is taking on the subject other media outlets have largely shied away from covering in recent months: Trump’s alleged “pee pee” tape.

With black lights at the ready, the “Late Show” recently traveled to Moscow and rented out the presidential suite at the Ritz Carlton—the room where Trump supposedly performed “golden showers” with hired prostitutes—to find the truth behind the infamous dossier at the center of the allegations.

“When you’re in this room, I don’t know how to describe it: It’s soaked in history,” Colbert said inside the bedroom of the suite. “It just washes over you.”

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
