WATCH: Colbert Rips Trump's Evangelical Panderfest and Utter Idiocy About John Wayne

Election '16

Colbert dipped into the deep deep pool of Trump buffoonery on Thursday night's show, and raised some burning questions about Trump's Bible readings. "Trump loves the Bible so much he doesn't even need to read it apparently," Colbert said, referring to the fact that Trump, alone among Bible scholars calls it 2 Corinthians rather than Second Corinthians during a visit to Libert University.

But Trump loves that book. He really really does. He may even love it more than his own "Art of the Deal." But just barely.

Next, Colbert moved on to the stranged tableau of Trump's being endorsed  by John Wayne's daughter in front of a wax statue of the Duke himself, which Trump took to be a sign from the heavens that he really is anointed.
