“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert couldn’t help but take a shot at President Donald Trump’s complicated first full day at NATO.
Citing the New York Times, Colbert read, “Mr. Trump kicked off his meetings on a contentious note.” Colbert remarked that a “contentious note” is all that Trump has. “He’s a human air-horn!”
He also mocked Trump’s short remarks to reporters before boarding Marine One to fly out to the summit. The president listed off all of his planned meetings, highlighting that he anticipated the meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin would likely “be the easiest of them all. Who would think?”
“I would think, everyone would think it,” Colbert said. “I’m not ready to say our president is a Russian agent but I have an agent and he doesn’t do as much for me as Trump does for Russia. I love you baby doll, but you never swung an election for me, OK. I lost to John Oliver.”
Oddly enough, Colbert found one person at Fox News he agreed with about Trump’s trips. It was a commentator, who explained that Trump would “fly into Brussels like a seagull and defecate all over everything and fly away.” In many respects, that’s what Trump did.
After recounting the first day’s events, Colbert turned to another camera for a serious moment of what he called “going to real town.”
“Look. if you like the president, you don’t like the president, it doesn’t matter. We all know what’s going on here. Trump is trying to weaken the EU and weaken NATO and break up the European alliance which is exactly what Russia wants,” Colbert explained. “This is not a theory. This is happening in public. What we don’t know is why. Maybe he is sucking up to Putin to finally build that Trump Tower in Moscow. Maybe he wants to realign the global power structure, use Russia as an ally against an emerging China or maybe Putin has a tape of him in a hotel with two hookers going, ‘Oh, daddy likes, I love it! I love it!”
He clarified it was the latter option. But in all seriousness, Colbert said he agreed with “the Fox News guy.”
Colbert also ran a short clip prior to the show that appeared to be a German newscaster cracking up when she heard about Donald Trump saying Germany was a captive of Russia.
