Stephen Colbert Took Donald Trump Up One Side And Then Down The Other Monday Night
Finally someone has told the truth to America. I have never allowed this language–like that below–on my blog before. But we have never had a pile of rot like Donald Trump seeking the White House before. Speaking truth needs to be heard and read.
Stephen Colbert screwed Donald Trump to a ceiling fan and then turned it on high during Monday’s show. Harkening back to his Colbert Super PAC days, the host recalled the time he offered to donate $1 million to the charity of Trump’s choice if he would let him dip his balls in his mouth. “Now, for some reason, Donald, you did not take the deal,” he said. “I’m going to guess it’s because your mouth was already full of Vladimir Putin’s balls.”
This past Friday, Donald Trump finally brought himself to say the words, “President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period.”
“That’s what’s called a firm grasp of the obvious,” Stephen Colbert declared on Monday night’s Late Show. “Next I assume he’s going to announce that water is wet, that bears poop in the woods, and that Donald Trump is not qualified to be president.”
Instead, Trump went on to claim that Hillary Clinton “started the birther controversy” in 2008 and that he “finished” it in 2011 when Obama released his long-form birth certificate, all of which has been proved demonstrably false. “No you didn’t,” Colbert said. “And I know you didn’t, because I was alive and on TV.” While it’s possible that he was remembering wrong, the host said it’s far more likely that “Donald Trump is a liar.”
Finally, replaying Trump’s comments that Obama was “born in the United States, period,” Colbert shot back, “No! Not period. Question mark. Fuck you, exclamation point!” “You don’t get to flog this issue for five years and then act like you’re correcting everybody else!” Colbert exclaimed, getting more heated than usual. “We’re not crazy, we were there. We all saw you do it. Even the people who support you saw you do it, it’s why they support you!”
