Stephen Colbert Uncovers the Truth Behind Trump vs. Pope Feud

The latest celebrity feud is Donald Trump versus the Pope. "As America's foremost Catholic, let me explain to you what happened," said "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert.
The Pope is in Mexico and was asked about Trump's plan to build a border wall. His Holiness said, "A person who only thinks about building walls wherever they may be and not building bridges is not Christian… This man is not Christian if he has said things like that."
"Donald Trump has not said things like that," Colbert clarified. "He has said exactly that." Donald Trump wants to build a wall around this country. "I wonder where he could have gotten a crazy idea like that?" asked Colbert. "Maybe the Vatican!" The crowd cheered. 
Trump responded immediately from South Carolina: "The Mexican government fed the Pope a tremendous amount of stuff about Trump is not a good person…. Can you imagine? I just got a call. As I'm walking up here [to the stage] they said, Mr Trump, the Pope made a statement about you. I said, the Pope? What did the Pope say? I like The Pope.. if it's good, I like The Pope. If it's bad I don't like the Pope."
"You gotta respect his honesty," Colbert said. "It's like Jesus said, blessed are the poor, unless they said something bad about me, then screw 'em." 
"Is it possible that Donald Trump and the Pope are fighting because they have so much in common?" asked Colbert. "After all, [they] both think they're infallible, sit on golden thrones and wear very silly things on [their] heads!"
