Coming to the defense of Face the Nation‘s John Dickerson — who recently conducted a controversial interview with Trump, during which the president referred to his show as Deface the Nation — Colbert kicked off The Late Show by (admittedly) shedding his dignity for an honest rant against 45.
“Donald Trump, John Dickerson is a fair-minded journalist and one of the most competent people who will ever walk into your office, and you treat him like that?” he began, before hurling a barrage of truth bombs — plus a few clever nicknames of his own. Seriously, if puns are your thing, hold on tight:
Mr. President, your presidency — I love your presidency — I call it Disgrace The Nation. You’re not the POTUS, you’re the bloat-us. You’re the glutton with the button. You’re a regular Gorge Washington. You’re the presi-dunce, but you’re turning into a real prick-tator. … Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine. You have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a sign-language gorilla that got hit in the head. In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c–k holster.
No, you didn’t misread that last part. (I told you he had a few choice words!)
