Stephen Colbert suggests new Trump campaign slogan: ‘Seriously ladies, you could lose a few pounds’

Published

Stephen Colbert said his recovery from this week’s presidential debate had lasted like a two-day hangover — and just thinking about it made him want to drink.

“Donald Trump says all the polls show he won, and the polls show Hillary (Clinton) won,” Colbert said. “It’s kind of like, he said, reality said.”

Trump explained to his supporters that he’d gone easy on Clinton during Monday’s debate because he didn’t want to embarrass her.

“Yes, and it’s true — he did nothing to embarrass her,” Colbert said, pausing ever-so-slightly before the last word. “Trump is always acting like such a gentleman. He holds doors for women, gives them the seat on the bus, does no debate preparation. You might call it the addled ramblings of a delusional demagogue, Trump calls it chivalry.”

Clinton reminded voters that Trump had called a former Miss Universe fat when he owned the beauty pageant, and the Republican doubled down on his insults — which Colbert said might hurt him with the “small special interest group of Americans who gain weight.”

He suggested Trump’s new campaign slogan could be: “Seriously ladies, you could lose a few pounds.”

“That kind of brutal honesty takes courage, because Trump weighs 236 pounds, which at his height is technically obese,” Colbert said.

GOP’s Joni Ernst may have inadvertently boosted Joe Biden in Iowa: ex-White House official

Published

on

On CNN's "New Day," regular contributor and former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart almost rolled his eyes at a clip of Iowa Republican Sen. Joni Ernst rushing to the cameras to gush about attacks on Joe Biden, saying she may have ended up helping the former vice president in her own state.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota after watching the clip of the Iowa Republican blurting, "The Iowa caucuses are this next Monday evening, and I'm really interested to see how this discussion today informs and influences the Iowa caucus voters, those Democratic goers. Will they be supporting VP Biden at this point?" Lockhart seemed in disbelief that she may have handed Biden a boost.
