Stephen Colbert’s Tuesday night monologue was largely focussed on politics, but he did find time to go over the news that Amazon’s Jeff Bezos would be stepping down as CEO — and join in with the flurry of jokes already been cracked online.

“Before leaving office he will be cocooned in bubble wrap and put in a box eight times his size,” says the Late Show host in the clip above. “Maybe throw in a little SD card, something like that.”

Colbert goes on to talk about Bezos’ extreme wealth, citing a report that claimed he “could have given all 876,000 Amazon employees a $105,000 bonus and still have been as wealthy as he was before the pandemic.”

“Key phrase there: Could have given,” says Colbert. “So on one hand, he’s an obscenely-rich plutocrat who hoards wealth as those employees not yet replaced by robots have to pee in bottles for lack of bathroom breaks. But on the other hand, he greenlit Fleabag.”
