Stephen Colbert calls Trump a ‘disease’ after tweets attacking MSNBC’s Joe and Mika

"This is not what's wrong with American politics...This is what's wrong with the American president."

Stephen Colbert attacked Donald Trump hard after the sitting president attacked MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. Trump bit back at them for criticizing him with a tweet saying he refused to meet them at Mar-a-Lago this winter and noted Mika “was bleeding badly from a face-lift.”

“I want to say something right now that I did not think was possible anymore. I am shocked by something Donald Trump said,” Colbert began on Thursday’s Late Show. “I thought by now, after five months of this, that my soul had calcified into a crouton. Not true.”

“It’s a buffet of shit,” Colbert remarked. “First of all, someone bleeding badly at your door and you say no? It sounds like your health care plan. And I mean, turning them away from your hotel in the middle of winter is literally the story of Christmas—only there wasn’t a wise man in sight. This is shocking and vicious. So on brand.”

“Of course this is shocking to everyone not employed by Donald Trump,” Colbert explained before showing tweets from Republicans Ben Sasse and Lindsay Graham denouncing the president’s attacks. Graham said this “represents what’s wrong with American politics.”

“This is not what’s wrong with American politics,” Colbert clarified. “This is what’s wrong with the American president.”


  1. Absolutely! American politics in general worship it’s own devil. Corporations control our politicians to the point that OUR money can’t go for healthcare because it’d be bad business for the insurance industry, big pharm, and many other areas of the heathcare system.


  2. Sick man is the president. We as americans did this to ourselves. We must educate our children by good example and take parenthood seriously not by giving them stuff but by giving them ourselves. WE MUST TEACH THEM RESPECT HONOR AND RESPONSIBILITY. GOOD JUDGEMENT SO NEVER AGAIN WE WILL?MAKE THE MISTAKE OF ELECTING A MISGUIDED AND TOTALLY CONFUSED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.


  3. Thank God he didn’t endorse Hillary again…bravo Stephen….you may (or may not) be my intellectual superior….but isn’t it a bit much to keep pointing out that the clown is a clown? ( and triscuit is much funnier than crouton)
