Stephen Colbert trolls Donald Trump’s presidential tone


The Late Show with Stephen Colbert opened up Wednesday night’s episode by talking about President Donald Trump’s address to Congress.

For the first time in a while, major news outlets around the country were more optimistic than usual regarding President Donald Trump after his address to Congress. However, several late night talk shows weren’t as easily swayed, including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

During Wednesday night’s episode, Colbert started with an opening monologue about Trump’s speech from Tuesday night. He talked about how it seemed like a different Trump was giving the speech, with The Washington Post calling the speech “surprisingly presidential”.

Colbert also talked about the fact that Trump was actually optimistic in his speech, something that the late night talk show host wasn’t expecting. However, as Colbert pointed out, Trump may have changed his tone, but the content was very much the same.

You can watch the entire segment from Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Show in the YouTube video below.

During the segment, Colbert brought up the new office that Trump is opening called the “Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement”, or V.O.I.C.E.. After the crowd began to boo, Colbert admitted that he wasn’t a big fan of acronyms either.

Even though Colbert is obviously not a fan of President Trump, he has to be happy with the fact that his constant trolling of the POTUS has significantly helped The Late Show’s ratings. In fact, The Late Show has been consistently beating The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in ratings since Trump was sworn into office, so expect plenty more trolling over the next few years.
