Stephen Colbert fact checks Trump after latest Washington Post fake news claims

President Trump has once again called The Washington Post fake news, because of course he did. On Wednesday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert mocked Trump for his latest string of “FAKE NEWS” tweets aimed at WaPo.

Trump tweeted, “The #AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS!”

Colbert called this a “fake tweet,” and remarked, “First, Amazon does pay taxes … and there’s no such thing as internet taxes. Second, we know you think the Washington Post is fake news, you don’t have to keep on telling us.”

Colbert also aimed a dig at the president that would probably get under his skin more than any other: comparing him to his predecessor. “I mean, Obama didn’t wake up every day and tweet, ‘Still first black president. #iamthedream.”
