With the reports that Donald Trump employs ghostwriters to help keep his Twitter account updated, Stephen Colbert isn’t quite sure what to think anymore.

Could this explain a lot of things?

Last night on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert brought up the recent news involving Donald Trump’s Twitter account. A judge has ruled that, as the president of the United States, the Twitter account is considered to be a public forum. As such, the judge has disallowed Trump from blocking any more users from seeing his tweets, and he must now keep it open to everyone.

That’s certainly a blow to the president, whose Twitter account seems to be his most favorite thing. But the story gets even stranger than that. As Colbert reveals, Trump also has ghostwriters reportedly writing some of his tweets. The kicker? To seem more authentic, these ghostwriters are allegedly adding typos to the tweets on purpose, dumbing themselves down to more believably seem like Trump. There’s not even a joke to be made there, as that’s very much amusing in itself.

Of course, Stephen Colbert has some things to say about that. You can watch the bit in the YouTube video below!

By removing Trump’s ability to block people on Twitter, it seems that one of his greatest weapons has been taken away from him. Is Trump going to tweet about the judge’s ruling? Hop on Twitter to find out! And as for Colbert, you can catch him on TV every weeknight when The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs on CBS at 11:30 p.m. EST.
