Stephen Colbert spoke about Donald Trump claiming not to be a racist, and the Late Show host actually finds something he agrees with Trump on.
Some of us thought we would never see the day!
Last night on The Late Show, Stephen Colbert dove into his opening monologue talking about Donald Trump and racism. The president has been under fire lately because of claims made by his former aide Omarosa in her new tell-all book. One of its biggest revelations is that there is a tape that exists of Trump saying the infamous N-word on the set of The Apprentice.
In response, Trump has repeatedly said how he’s the “least racist person” that any of us know. “You can tell somebody is not something when they protest exactly the right amount,” Colbert points out to his viewers. There’s something inherently strange about a man spending all day trying to convince the world that he’s not something, if he is indeed not.
From there, however, Colbert shows a clip from the late ’80s of a younger Trump speaking about black people. He makes a peculiar comment insinuating how those in the black community have it easier than he does, going so far as to say that he himself wishes he were a well-educated black man. “I would love it if you were a well-educated black, too,” Colbert says, before showing a picture of Barack Obama on the screen. He adds, “Specifically this one.”

This feud between Omarosa and Trump is only getting more bitter. Certainly it doesn’t help Trump with Colbert taking him down every weeknight as well. To see more of Colbert, however, be sure to tune in when The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST on CBS.
