On Tuesday, comedian Stephen Colbert said that President Donald Trump will use his State of the Union address to evoke fear in the American people.
Trump is scheduled to deliver his address on February 5th. Colbert predicted that Trump will use his time to repeat his hateful immigration rhetoric to rally up his base and support for his border wall.
"You know Trump's State of the Union is going to be filled with scary things to convince us to build his wall," Colbert said.
He then read a report from Vox news that said Trump made ten references to claims that women were gagged with duck-tapped and put in the back of vans at the border without any evidence.
"Nobody knows where he got that [information] from," Colbert said.
Colbert then said Trump must have gotten his information from the "Homeland Immigration Study Asslyum Support Statistics."
"Or H.I.S A.S.S," Colbert joked.
