Stephen Colbert’s response to Trump officially securing nomination? Lie down in fetal position

Donald Trump has officially secured the Republican nomination and Stephen Colbert has officially reached his wits end. In the clip above from Thursday’s Late Show monologue, Colbert begins by saying, “This is a crazy election. But you know that, unless you’ve been in a coma. And I gotta say, if you have been in a coma, you might want to slip back into it for the next few months.”

As of Thursday, Donald Trump has reached the 1,237 delegates needed to be the Republican presidential nominee. “It’s official. The die is cast. Trump’s the nominee,” Colbert says.

At this point, he is so overwhelmed, he needs to lie on the floor for a bit. “A year ago it seemed impossible,” Colbert explains from the floor. “It just goes to show that if you put your mind to it and work really hard, you’ll still probably lose to Donald Trump.”

One thing that manages to brighten Colbert’s outlook is the possibility of a debate between Trump and Bernie Sanders. The campaigns of both candidates confirmed that they would try to set up a debate between the two, but when Colbert’s audience cheers at the prospect, he knocks them down a peg. “I don’t know why you’re applauding,” he says. “That’s going to be two angry New Yorkers shouting at each other. It’ll be like the whole country is trapped in a subway car.”

Watch the clip to see Stephen come up with some great ways to describe Trump, like that “He looks like a microwaved circus peanut someone rubbed on a Golden Retriever.”
