More than a week after Stephen Colbert got in some hot water for referring to President Trump as Vladimir Putin’s “c*ckholster,” the president finally responded by calling Colbert a “no-talent guy” with a “filthy” mouth.
Colbert reacted with uncontainable glee on Thursday’s Late Show as he read Trump’s words about him. “The president of the United States has personally come after me and my show, and there’s only one thing to say,” said Colbert. “Yay!”
He then threw up his arms and blew a kiss to the president. “Mr. Trump, there’s a lot you don’t understand. But I never thought one of those things would be show business! Don’t you know I’ve been trying for a year to get you to say my name, and you were very restrained—admirably restrained—but now you did it.”
