Donald Trump made an appearance Tuesday on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, with the comedian pointing out that a lot of what Trump has said over the years sounds like his “over-the-top” alter-ago from “The Colbert Report”.
Trump, who appeared enthusiastic to hear the “fat meatball” question, immediately skirted the Obama birther question and said, “I don’t talk about that anymore”.
The former Comedy Central star managed to poke fun at Trump’s plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, suggesting instead two walls and in between “a moat filled with fire and fireproof crocodiles”.
Colbert expressed his appreciation to Trump, whose controversial statements have given comics ample material to work with. “Not as long as you did, but for many years”.
Colbert also challenged Trump to a game of “Who Said It?”, between Trump and Colbert’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert alter-ego.
Colbert called the question a “big fat meatball” that Trump would never have to respond again, if he answered during an afternoon taping of the “Late Show” episode.
“No, it would be my great honor”, Trump said, adopting a more serious tone.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told funnyman Stephen Colbert Tuesday that he was through talking about the birthplace of President Barack Obama. But late-night TV is also an easy way to campaign for president.
Colbert’s finest joke of the night was his first-delivered in the monologue, while Trump lingered in the green room.
“I oppose it, I don’t think it’s in the best interest of what we need to do to combat climate change”, said Clinton. Was it Colbert or Trump?
Colbert asked Trump to sign a copy of his 1987 book “The Art of the Deal” for Moniz. He’s not going to defend me.
“I apologize for being ideal”.
“You’re one of the household names in American politics”, Colbert said, “and yet you are one of the few household names that is not running for president of the United States“.
