"You know, I'm a man of some faith. But when bad things happen like this — and this does feel bad — I have to ask 'How could God let this happen?'"

As Colbert pondered the question, a projection of "God" appeared on stage and expressed shock that Trump won the election, even Googling the results to see if Colbert was right. "God" then told Colbert he was "busy binge-watching ‘Narcos’ on Netflix" and missed the election.

"Oh, that again? I'm omniscient and even I don't know how the hell that works," the deity replied. "I guess I shouldn't be that surprised white men came out on top again, considering how everyone assumes I look."
