Watch: Colbert Asks God Why He Let Trump Be the Republican Nominee

Donald Trump gave what some saw as an oddly presidential speech upon winning Indiana, in which he actually called for more love and applauded former nemesis Ted Cruz, for making the race competitive.


“We’re going to cherish each other, we’re going to take care of each other,” Trump told the crowd in New York late Tuesday. Never mind that earlier in the day he had floated the baseless claim that Cruz's father was involved in the Kennedy assassination.

Stephen Colbert opined that Trump's weird comments were, “Basically all the things you do when you think the world is going to end,” and Trump didn’t end the meaningless promises with spreading "love" around.

“We’re going to be saying Merry Christmas again,” Trump announced, almost like a new campaign slogan.

"I’m going to start saying it now,” Colbert added, “Because I’m not sure we’re going to make it to December.”

It's all enough to make Colbert have a crisis of faith.
