On Thursday night, Stephen Colbert slammed President Trump over his tweets attacking MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. “I’m gonna say something right now that I did not think was possible anymore,” he began. “I am shocked by something Donald Trump said.”
Colbert read the tweet out loud in his Trump voice and reacted, “First of all, someone bleeding badly at your door and you say no? It sounds like your health care plan.” “This is shocking and vicious, so on brand,” he added.
The Late Show host read off some headlines, calling the tweets “vulgar,” “crude,” and a “new low.” “No, it’s the same low,” Colbert responded. He added, “Let’s stop pretending that Trump is a symptom of something; he’s the disease. And the only cure is three-and-a-half years of liquor and bed rest.”
