Donald Trump says Kim Jong-Un is ‘funny’ — Stephen Colbert responds

Donald Trump is smitten enough with Kim Jong-Un’s personality to repeatedly call the man “funny,” and Stephen Colbert had an actually funny response.

When you hear the name Kim Jong-Un, what’s the first word that comes to mind? If you thought “funny,” you might be Donald Trump.

Last night on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert spoke some more about the summit between Trump and Kim Jong-Un that took place a few days ago. Trump is essentially fawning over the Korean leader, saying how strong and smart the guy is. Going on about the man’s great personality, Trump repeatedly says that Kim Jong-Un is “funny.”

“Funny?!” Colbert questions in response to the comments. “Mr. President, when they talk about how much Kim Jong-Un kills, they’re not talking about his new Comedy Central special Kim Jong Un-Censored.” Of course, the quip comes complete with an image of Kim Jong-Un performing live on stage in an outfit reminiscent of an ’80s Eddie Murphy.

Colbert then shows a clip of Trump being asked about his praise for Kim, as it’s odd he’d strike a friendship with a man infamous for executions, while Trump himself is always referring to immigrants as “killers.” To that, Trump only goes on about how the Korean leader is “tough,” and remarks about the success he’s managed to get for himself by such a young age.

Colbert is only just getting started, as he goes on to take down the rest of the awkward summit meeting. This includes lying about having parents asking him to bring their children back home from the war. It’s humorous watching Colbert expose that lie. You can watch this segment in the YouTube video below.
