‘Trump dumb; staff worried’: Stephen Colbert sums up Michael Wolff’s ‘Fire and Fury’

Last Friday, Michael Wolff released his controversial tell-all from inside the White House, Fire and Fury, and the Trump team has been fired up and furious. Stephen Colbert had Wolff on his show to discuss the book, but first he used his monologue to summarize the bombshell work in just a few words—”Trump dumb; staff worried.”

Over the weekend, Trump called himself “like, really smart” and a “very stable genius.” Colbert scoffed. “Being ‘like, really smart’ is not the same as being really smart, sir,” he said. “Also, I think it’s worth mentioning that people who are mentally stable don’t usually announce it. If you’re going under for surgery, the last thing you want to hear your doctor say is, ‘Don’t worry, I’m mentally stable and, like, really smart!’”

“Yes, I’m a very stable genius,” Colbert said, imitating Trump, “Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s past my cheeseburger’s bedtime.”
