Colbert Blames Ed Gillespie’s Virginia Loss on Donald Trump Jr Twitter Gaffe (Video)
Wednesday, 8 November 2017 Donald Trump Jr. didn’t just turn his clocks back an hour on Sunday — he must have rewound them an entire day.
On Tuesday, Stephen Colbert torched the President’s son for apparently not knowing when Election Day actually is. Don Jr. was trying to rally Virginians to get out and vote for Republican Ed Gillespie — he just happened to be off by a good 24 hours.
Below is Junior’s initial “tomorrow” screw-up, which was posted on the morning of Election Day. Don would repeat his mistake, and Gillespie went on to lose the race.
Let’s take @EdWGillespie across the finish line tomorrow! Virginia: get out and vote for Ed & entire @GOP ticket #VAGov #VA

“Maybe he should have waited for his morning cup of hair gel,” Colbert quipped of the calendar error.
“Turns out Eric is the smart one,” the CBS personality concluded.
