Colbert recaps Trump’s 100 days, chides him for comparing ratings to 9/11

On Monday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert used an extra long monologue to recap President Trump’s first 100 days in office. “It’s a huge week for Donald Trump because this Saturday he will reach 100 days in office, and boy, it sure seems longer,” he joked of the presidential milestone.

“The first 100 days are traditionally a time to reflect on accomplishments for a president, and Trump hasn’t got a lot of those,” Colbert explained. “He still hasn’t filled his Cabinet, he didn’t repeal Obamacare, there are still Muslims. But—and it’s a big but—he did sign a law making it easier for mentally ill people to buy guns and for hibernating bears to be hunted. So he took care of his base: insane people who want to murder Yogi.”

Colbert then recapped the many things Trump has failed to do in his first three months, before berating the president for comparing his Face the Nation news to a national tragedy. “It’s the highest for ‘Deface the Nation’ since the World Trade Center,” Trump said. “Since the World Trade Center came down. It’s a tremendous advantage.”

In his best Trump voice, Colbert mocked, “My first hundred days have been huge. Titanic, OK? We’re blowin’ up, OK? Bigger than anything since Nagasaki. That’s how big.”
