Donald Trump has been caught again retweeting his own “fake news” with clearly fake propaganda stories, and Stephen Colbert is offering a response.

For as much as Donald Trump likes to accuse others of spreading fake news, it sure always seems extra ironic when he does it himself!

Last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Colbert brought up some funny activity going on on the president’s Twitter account. Recently, Trump has been retweeting some stories from a British hate group, which are designed only as anti-Muslim propaganda. In other words, Colbert shows an example of Trump retweeting a video with one person attacking another, with the attacker being labelled as a Muslim. However, local police have confirmed that the assailant was never identified as a Muslim, and videos like these are only intended to stir the pot.

To prove his point, Colbert shows a video clip from Rocky IV of Russian boxer Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) wailing on American boxer Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone). Colbert jokes that a Muslim is beating up Rocky, which is basically the same thing this hate group is doing — and Trump is retweeting. Even those in Britain aren’t taking Trump tweeting these videos all too well, as Colbert goes on to demonstrate in the clip.

You can watch Colbert say it best in the YouTube video below.
