North Korea leader Kim Jong-un has invited Donald Trump to meet with him about improving their relationship, and Stephen Colbert is weighing in.
“We’ll finally find out who has a bigger button!” – Stephen Colbert
Last night on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert brought up the latest developments in the relationship between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. Now seemingly open to the idea of denuclearization, Jong-un invited the president over for a meeting. As it turns out, the president accepted, and plans to meet with the North Korea leader by May to improve relations between the two countries.
“This can only mean one thing,” Colbert jokes. “Dennis Rodman is going to get the Nobel Peace Prize!”
Colbert then quips that the invitation is “B.Y.O. Everything,” due to North Korea being a troubled nation. But what really entertains him the most is what Trump said in response to the invitation. Apparently, Trump told a reporter he wants the media to give him “credit” if the meeting goes well.
“Oh, I’ll give you credit,” Colbert jokes, before breaking character by swearing and bursting into laughter. After calming down, he reveals what it was he was going to say before he lost it. “How about bringing peace to your own country first?” Colbert says through a smile. He might be telling a joke, but it’s not a bad question!
