Stephen Colbert Calls Mexico About Covering Cost of Trump's Wall

Stephen Colbert is here to help ensure that Mexico pays for President Donald Trump’s border wall.

On The Late Show Friday, Colbert compiled a team of experts — including an architect, an engineer, a concrete guy and an interior designer — to come up with some rough estimates for the “so big, so strong, so powerful” wall. (As a reminder, Trump has just three years and 11 months to complete construction if he wants to keep his campaign promise.)

After concluding that the wall would have to be at least 100 feet tall, require at least 12,000 skilled laborers and result in roughly 4,800 casualties (!), Colbert put in a call to the Mexican consulate to see if the adjacent nation would foot the bill, which comes in just under $2 trillion.

Press PLAY on the video above to see how Colbert and his team came to the 13-figure estimate, then witness his call to Mexico.

    Where is the money coming from to pay for this monstrosity??????

    I can’t figure out who is more pathetic: the cheeto in the office or the pathetic, loser, ignorant, uneducated, RACIST a**holes who believed his verbal diarrhea.

    Losers, the whole lot.

    BTW, Colbert has every right to call him out on his stupidity. I’d be surprised if anybody in that floundering administration has had that sort of budget meeting or even tried to figure out the practical aspects of this lunacy.
