Stephen Colbert is noticing a pattern with how Donald Trump keeps coming back to the one network that only lobs him softball questions, Fox News.

Fox News and the president, sitting in a tree…

Donald Trump is a man of many catch phrases, there’s no doubt about that. But one that he has been using extensively as of late is the infamous, “Fake news!” Any time there’s something in the media that is bad news for Trump, his go-to response is to just always say that it’s made up — no matter what kind of proof may come with it.

But it’s not that Trump avoids the media. He loves to do interviews, but apparently, on with journalists who throw him pure softball questions. Perhaps that’s why he has come onto Fox News an astonishing 19 times thus far, spending time on the network whose reputation is that they’re biased for the Republican party. Go figure.

On last night’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert brought up Trump’s 19 Fox News appearances and had a good laugh over it. He shows clips of Trump’s 19th interview, with the interviewer asking questions that are akin to a “full body rubdown.” Colbert jokes that he would say that he’s lobbing softballs, but if this interview is any indication, the guy doesn’t have any balls.

Colbert then gets into a tirade on the interview, blasting the Fox network for these fluff pieces. You can watch the monologue in the YouTube video below.
