Stephen Colbert Gleefully Responds to Donald Trump's Insults

13 Mai, 2017, 17:48 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

While it's true that Trump did pull in high ratings, guess who drew even more? A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday and carried out between May 4 and May 9 showed 36 percent of people polled approved of his job performance while 58 percent said they disapprove.

In an interview with Time, President Trump found time in his presumably busy schedule running the nation to attack Late Show host Stephen Colbert: "You see a no-talent guy like Colbert".

Colbert, now the anti-Trump king of late night, issued a pitch-perfect response Thursday: "The president of the United States has personally come after me and my show", he said.

After a monologue that poked fun at the Trump administration's changing narrative on why Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey was sacked, Colbert acknowledged Trump's shots at him.

And the 45-year-old has revealed how the problems of the past have come back, but he has had support from his colleagues at Hibs. Hibernian manager Neil Lennon has become the latest high-profile football figure to speak openly about his mental struggle.

Colbert did throw Trump a bone and admitted the ratings of his show were indeed high the night Trump was on, but the shade quickly followed: "The only episode that got better ratings was the night I had Jeb Bush on".

"That's right. You got beat by low-energy Jeb", Colbert added. "The night you appeared on this show. was very highly rated. It's nearly as if the majority of Americans didn't want you to be president", Colbert concluded. "And making jokes about you has been good ratings".

"You know who's got really bad ratings these days - you do", he said.

To a burst of applause, Colbert continued, "Please, oh please! I hear they're thinking of switching your time slot with Mike Pence".

I'll never forget Jimmy Fallon tousling Trump's hair. "Except your resignation, 'cause that'd be fun". A president going after someone telling jokes is unprecedented. Colbert directly tells the president.
