Donald Trump is complaining about Air Force One and is looking to give it some special upgrades, and Stephen Colbert couldn’t help but respond.
Riding on Air Force One would be a lavishing experience most people could never even imagine. So, of course, Donald Trump isn’t happy with it.
As revealed on Friday’s Late Show, Trump has been complaining about the president’s private airplane. Because, of all things to glean from this trip to meet with foreign leaders, Trump’s takeaway is that his plane isn’t good enough. So Stephen Colbert couldn’t wait to take Trump down after diving into his comments. And his response was beyond hilarious.
“He wants his ride pimped, because we just found out that Trump wants to update the paint job on the next version of Air Force One,” Colbert explains. “It’s either a new paint job or the plane’s got to get fake boobs.” Colbert then mimes Trump telling the plane that although she’s a 747, she could be a “9-40-10” with the “right rack.” Sure, Colbert is joking, but the sad part is that it’s not hard at all to picture Trump saying, and believing, those very words.
But the outside of the plane isn’t all Trump wants to upgrade. Apparently, the POTUS feels the bed inside isn’t quite big enough for him, either. How much space doesn’t the president need? “Mr. President, we all struggle with our weight from time to time,” Colbert retorts, “but you’re in serious trouble if you’re outgrowing a plane.”

Will these upgrades be applied to the president’s special airplane? It looks like we’ll just have to wait and see. For more from Colbert, tune in when The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST on CBS!
