Stephen Colbert is hitting departing White House communications director Hope HicksHope HicksTrump selects Hicks, Bondi, Grenell and other allies for positions Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis tests positive for coronavirus Women set to take key roles in Biden administration MORE on her way out the door, mocking reports that she admitted to telling “white lies” for President TrumpDonald TrumpEx-Trump lawyer Cohen to pen forward for impeachment book Murkowski says it would be 'appropriate' to bar Trump from holding office again Man known as 'QAnon Shaman' asks Trump for pardon after storming Capitol MORE.

Hicks, who announced Wednesday that she would leave her White House post, reportedly made the admission in testimony to the House Intelligence Committee earlier this week.

“She refused to answer almost all of the committee’s questions, but she did acknowledge that she sometimes tells ‘white lies’ for Trump,” Colbert said on "The Late Show" on Wednesday, referring to Hicks as "her own evil twin."

“Well, duh,” Colbert continued. “Telling lies to white people is what got Trump elected.”


Hicks reportedly told the committee that she has not lied about anything related to Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

“You think telling the feds you lie about some stuff, but not other stuff, is going to throw them off the scent?” Colbert said Wednesday. “Oh sure, there’s blood in my car, but that’s like, from a totally different body!”

Hicks, who has been one of Trump’s most trusted advisers during her time in the administration, announced her resignation the day after her lengthy interview in the committee’s Russia investigation, but has no set departure date.

“They said it won’t be happening for a few weeks,” Colbert joked. “She has to train up her replacement liar.”
