WATCH: Stephen Colbert Reveals Donald Trump's Real Strategy

Election '16

Stephen Colbert swore to himself he wouldn't talk about Trump so much, but he basically couldn't help himself since everyone else at the nation's water cooler is these days. The Late Show host wondered just how the TSA will be able to tell if people are Muslim in order to ban one quarter of the world's population from coming into the U.S. "Although their patdowns are thorough enough to tell if you are Jewish," Colbert quipped. "I used to have to pay someone to do that."

Colbert's lightbulb moment was that Trump just says wildly offensive things every few days to everyone in the country except white people in order to keep everyone on TV talking about him endlessly. But as a white person, Colbert feels a little left out. And he limited the air time he gave Trump, by quoting Philadelphia Mayor Nutter who simply called Trump "an asshole."

Then Colbert turned his attention to Hillary Clinton who, he says, "has been harder to find than her e-mails." And finally to Ben Carson for a hilarious string of Hamas\hummus jokes.
