Every time Colbert tried to tell the joke in questionstarting with, Why did the chicken? he cut himself off and went on a tangent to develop expectation, just as Maddow did on her evidence with Trumps tax return.

Was there a huge, damning bombshell in these tax returns? No, Maddow declared subsequently. But it is the first case of the jigsaw puzzle.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Fallon asked his guest such hard-hitting questions as, You were tending on Twitter last night!
