On Monday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert celebrated President’s Day by berating the current president. On Saturday night, Donald Trump delivered a speech in Florida in which he said, “You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening last night in Sweden—Sweden, who would believe this?”
“No one. No one would believe that,” Colbert said of the attack that never happened. “Well, not no one, but maybe someone who skips his intelligence briefings.”
“Let’s be real here, this is the president of the United States,” Colbert continued. “He has access to everything and the latest intel at all time. Sir, for real, where did you get your information from?” Trump tweeted that he got the info from Fox News. “Oh, I guess Trump only accepts intelligence reports with the logo, ‘As seen on TV,’” remarked Stephen.
“Tragically, Sweden is the third not-a-terrorist-attack that has not shocked the world in the last month,” Colbert said, referring to the Bowling Green Massacre. “When will it begin?! And just because it didn’t happen doesn’t mean we don’t stand in solidarity with all the people who did not suffer.”
