Late Show Television

Stephen Colbert keeps score of the Trump-Schwarzenegger ratings battle

"Is this the War of 1812? Cause the White House just got burned!"

At the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday morning, President Trump made a speech in which he mentioned The Apprentice and asked attendees to pray that new host Arnold Schwarzenegger might have better ratings. Stephen Colbert used his monologue on Thursday’s Late Show to recap Trump’s speech and Arnold’s response.

Trump first said in the speech that when he goes around the country people everywhere say five words to him. “Please don’t grab my p—y,” Colbert guessed, counting on his fingers. “Is that five?” It turns out the answer was, “I am praying for you,” and the president used that segue to request,  “I want to just pray for Arnold if we can, for those ratings.”

“I hear tomorrow he’s going to roast Rosie O’Donnell at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier,” Colbert joked. Watch the clip to see the response from Schwarzenegger himself.
