Stephen Colbert is happy knowing that we’ll never watch Donald Trump in a debate ever again

Thursday night featured the second and final presidential debate between President Joe Biden and former Vice President Joe Biden. While the subjects were heavy and many Americans struggled to get through the debate, Stephen Colbert says it was worth celebrating.

The debate featured a new wrinkle in the form of a mute button. It was designed to prevent both candidates from interrupting one another but in reality, it was made for only one man. The mute button and President Trump’s poor poll numbers led his advisers to encourage a new strategy on Thursday night, based on a softer tone and more likable demeanor.

It’s hard to imagine that the president was going to sway public opinion in one 90-minute debate even if some voters remain undecided. Instant reaction from the debate indicated that a majority of people considered it a win for Vice President Biden.

Once again, The Late Show was live after the debate. Stephen Colbert has successfully pulled this off following the first presidential debate and the vice presidential debate. On Thursday night, the noted critic found something to celebrate in President Trump’s debate performance:

After 16 times, we’ve seen the last debate with Donald Trump. Stephen Colbert is relieved to have made it hrough a round of Republican primaries, a series against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and now a pair against former Vice President Joe Biden.

The Late Show host gets some of his best material when President Trump is in front of a microphone. But even the comedian is tired of seeing these debate performances and listening to the president’s unfiltered, on-the-spot answers.

Stephen Colbert answers President Donald Trump’s debate lies

Intent on making the most of his final Trump debate analysis, Colbert didn’t waste any time in saying that President Trump lied. In particular, Colbert takes offense to the president’s assessment that New York City is a “ghost town.”

The monologue moved on to the president’s comments on other topics including plexiglass protection at restaurants, prepaid taxes, his international business dealings, and a “beautiful” healthcare plan.

For Colbert, the most offensive thing said all night was when President Trump praised the conditions in which children separated from their parents are kept. This follows up Colbert’s monologue from the night before when he said that the cruelty of President Trump’s immigration policy was the point. The fact that the president seems indifferent to the 545 children separated from the parents clearly hit a nerve with Colbert.

At least it will be the last time Colbert has to talk about what Donald Trump said during a debate. As he told his Late Show audience, the ultimate mute button is in the form of a vote against this administration.
