After Trump infamously ended an interview with John Dickerson over Obama wiretapping claims, Stephen Colbert has edited himself into the footage.

To catch you up to speed, President Donald Trump recently created some controversy, as he is wont to do. When talking with John Dickerson of CBS News, Trump didn’t like the way things were going. Asked to show evidence of his claims that he’d been wiretrapped by Barack Obama, Trump instead terminated the interview instantly.

As a result, the POTUS has been getting mocked relentlessly. It does him no favors when he already has the reputation of only believing his own narrative. One of the funniest take downs so far is a new faux interview between Trump and The Late Show‘s Stephen Colbert.

Using the actual footage of the Dickerson interview, Colbert edits himself into the clip. Colbert asks many random questions to the president, using Trump’s actual answers to respond with. It begins with Trump admitting that the American people don’t know if he’s sane or not, and doesn’t get any easier on him from there.

In the faux interview, Trump talks about his first 100 days in office. He talks about North Korea and his golf courses, and his refusal to talk about issues like Medicaid. Of course, there is one thing Trump will touch, as he “admits” in this interview: “an unsuspecting woman’s behind.” Ultimately, he confesses that his time as POTUS is “hurting the country.”

We will certainly never see a real interview between these two, as Trump would end it pretty quickly. But the video above is definitely the next best thing.
