“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:
Doctor fighting fraud charge cites Donald Trump in his defense of doling out COVID-19 drug
As President Donald Trump promoted the drug hydroxychloroquine, one California doctor took his recommendations to the bank.
According to the San Diego Tribune, Dr. Jennings Staley is being charged in what appears to be the first case involving the drug. The FBI is charing Staley with mail fraud as part of an effort hailing hydroxychloroquine as a "miracle cure" and the "magic bullet" to an undercover agent posing as a patient, court documents say.
The few police willing to join in solidarity with protesters
Reports of the protests across the country are focusing on the violence, clashes and property damage caused by a small few rather than the peaceful protest of those rallying against injustice and the police standing in solidarity with them.
A few captured positive moments of cities where officers support the protests and believe Black lives do actually matter.
There were moments of protesters fist-bumping police, hugs with police, and in one incident in New York City over the weekend, one officer was separated from his unit. Protesters surrounded him with locked arms to protect him from those being violent. In Miami, Florida and Seattle, Washington, police joined protesters in kneeling.
Trump shows all the signs of being ‘rattled’ now that the White House is under siege from protesters: columnist
In a column for the Atlantic, longtime political observer Peter Nicholas stated that Donald Trump is showing all the signs of a scared man as massive protests have broken out across the country over the murder of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minneapolis cops -- and angry Americans are taking their case all the way up to the White House gates.
As Nicholas wrote, "Presidents live within a protective cocoon built and continually fortified for one purpose: keeping them alive. But inside the White House compound these days, Donald Trump seems rattled by what’s transpiring outside the windows of his historic residence."
