On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, host Stephen Colbert admitted he was skeptical about Donald Trump‘s latest pick for Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh. Colbert cited the many conservative legal battles that Kavanaugh has been a part of or weighed in on.

The first thing Colbert tackled was Kavanaugh’s belief that sitting presidents should not be prosecuted because of their demanding job. Colbert said, “So he thinks the president should be above the law because his job is hard? In that case, I say moms of three or more kids ought to be able to murder at will.”

Colbert pointed out how Kavanaugh has been involved in many Republican legal battles — from Elian Gonzalez being returned to Cuba, to Bush v. Gore, which taught everyone what a hanging chad is — and said that’s probably why some consider Kavanaugh the “Forrest Gump of Republican politics.”

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 on CBS.
