Stephen Colbert thinks that President Donald Trump’s latest scandals are the worst he’s ever faced.
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has long predicted the downfall of President Donald Trump. And while Trump has avoided accountability in the past, Stephen Colbert is convinced that things are worse than ever for the President.
It’s not a years-long investigation or controversial public statement that will bring down President Trump. No, according to Stephen Colbert it will be Trump’s telephone habits that ultimately cost him the White House.
Just recently, Colbert called for President Trump to have his phone taken away. This came after his now infamous conversation with the president of Ukraine and a second call with the president of Turkey which resulted in U.S. troops withdrawing from northern Syria.
Now more information and reports are coming out about how President Trump conducts business over the phone. None of it is good news for Team Trump as Colbert explained during Wednesday night’s monologue on The Late Show.
A free-styling, improvised approach to telephone conversations with foreign leaders would raise eyebrows no matter who is in office. When it is President Trump, who isn’t exactly known as a great orator, then the concern really elevates. Colbert questions if these reports are too little, too late but thinks they can only support the outrage sparked from Trump’s call to Ukraine.
The consequences of Trump’s phone call with Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan have already been realized. Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria after speaking with Erdoğan was criticized by even his most loyal of supporters like Senator Lindsey Graham.
Colbert reports on even more bad news for President Trump, this time related to his tax returns. The increased pressure on the President brings a smile to Colbert face, proving that the comedian really thinks the walls are closing in on Trump.
With things not looking great for President Donald Trump, he may be forced to call up his lawyers and look for help. But as Stephen Colbert argues, it is about time for Trump to hang it up.
