“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert cracked up at President Donald Trump for the bizarre topics he discussed at his Milwaukee, Wisconsin rally Tuesday night.
Aside from his old favorites like ranting about old light bulbs and the fact that he thinks you have to wash dishes ten times before they finally get clean.
Trump also gave props to the military, saying that they were better at flying jets than Tom Cruise. Presumably, Trump meant the character Tom Cruise played in “Top Gun,” not the actual Tom Cruise, who doesn’t fly jets. Colbert did his own version of the Trump speech in his hilariously bad impression.
“Better at flying jets than Tom Cruise in ‘Top Gun.’ Better at making cocktails than Tom Cruise in ‘Cocktail.’ Better at raining men than Tom Cruise in ‘Rain Men.’ Better at interviewing vampires,” Colbert joked.
“Then Trump dug into specifics, like, when is now?” Colbert asked. He played a clip of Trump telling the audience they likely didn’t have anything better to do on whatever night it was.
“And is there ever, ever, a better place to be than a Trump rally on some night during some week?” Trump asked the audience.
“He really has no idea what day it is,” Colbert laughed. The CBS host then slipped into his Trump impression: “I’ll never forget the wonderful night and/or day we’re having here, in unnamed, screaming place, USA!”
Watch Colbert’s hilarity below:
French far-right leader Marine Le Pen announces 2022 presidential bid
French far-right leader Marine Le Pen isn’t wasting time. She announced her intention to stand in France’s 2022 presidential elections.
“My decision is made,” Le Pen said Thursday as she presented her New Year’s wishes.
Le Pen said she is proposing a “grand alternative to put the country back on its feet” and create “national unity.”
Le Pen reached the runoff in the 2017 election but lost badly to Emmanuel Macron, who is now in the midst of one of the most difficult periods of his presidency. In addition to the grassroots yellow vest movement that’s seeking social and economic justice, Macron is facing a strike over reforms to the country’s pension system that has run for 43 days.
Dutch art sleuth finds rare stolen copy of ‘Prince of Persian poets’
A stolen 15th-century book by the famed Persian poet Hafez has been recovered by a Dutch art detective after an international "race against time" that drew the alleged interest of Iran's secret service.
The gold-leafed volume worth around one million euros ($1.1 million) was found to be missing from the collection of an Iranian antiques dealer after his death in Germany in 2007.
It sparked a decade-long search for one of the oldest surviving copies of the "Divan of Hafez" -- the collected works of the poet who remains extremely popular in Iran and has inspired artists worldwide.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe: Trump doesn’t realize how much trouble he’s in — and GOP unsure how to defend him
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump is fooling himself on impeachment.
Trump insists he did nothing wrong in his actions toward Ukraine and complains that he's the victim of an impeachment "hoax," but the "Morning Joe" host said that most Americans disagree.
"He's talking to himself when he talks about a perfect phone call, yeah," Scarborough said. "He says it's a hoax, because what he's facing now isn't even what he was facing with (Robert) Mueller. There's more of a split when it came to what the American public believed, but he said it's a hoax and nobody can believe this is happening, and etc., etc., etc., and yet over 70 percent of Americans want a full and fair trial."
