Stephen Colbert mocks Trump for ‘TRAVEL BAN!’ tweet

On Monday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert returned from a weeklong hiatus to have a go at the latest Trump news, including his tweets following the London attack, in which he called for a renewed effort to pass his travel ban, despite months of denying that it was, indeed, a “travel ban.”

Trump’s administration has made numerous attempts at imposing a ban on travel from Muslim-majority countries, but all have been struck down. “A revised version is headed to the Supreme Court, and the administration’s only chance of winning is not calling it a ‘travel ban,’” Colbert said. “This thing should get approved by the Supreme Court as long as nobody calls it a ‘travel ban.’”

Cue Trump’s recent tweet, “People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!”

“C’mon!” Colbert exclaimed. “Mr. President, that was the one thing you’re not supposed to say! That’s like going to an AA meeting and shouting, ‘Who wants shots?!’”
