Colbert Has a Hilarious New Slogan For Trump After Debate Disaster

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert is still recovering from Monday night's first presidential debate, as is Donald Trump. 


“Donald Trump says all the polls show he won, and the polls show Hillary (Clinton) won,” Colbert said. “It’s kind of like, he said, reality said.”

Trump now claims he went easy on Hillary Clinton during the debate to save her the embarrassment of losing.

“Yes, and it’s true — he did nothing to embarrass her,” Colbert agreed. 

Trump certainly has an odd understanding of 'chivalry' considering how he doubled down on the mysogyny later.

“Trump is always acting like such a gentleman. He holds doors for women, gives them the seat on the bus, does no debate preparation. You might call it the addled ramblings of a delusional demagogue, Trump calls it chivalry.”

And leave it to Clinton to get Trump totally off his game by pointing out that his views on women come from managing beauty pageants, like his very own Miss Universe. 

“One of the worst things he said was about a woman in a beauty contest. He loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them,” Clinton began the story about the 1996 Miss Universe winner. 

“And he called this woman ‘Miss Piggy.’ Then he called her ‘Miss Housekeeping,’ because she was Latina.” Mrs. Clinton continued. “Donald, she has a name: Her name is Alicia Machado.”

But Trump, caught totally off guard, continued even the next day to double down on the insults. 

“[Machado] was the worst we ever had. The worst. The absolute worst. She was impossible,” Trump told Fox News Channel Tuesday. “. . . She was the winner, and she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem. We had a real problem.”

Has Trump forgotten his goal is to win over voters? Because that “small special interest group of Americans who gain weight" won't be encouraged by his statements.

Or maybe it's just another well-orchestrated flop.

"It's all part of Trump's new campaign slogan: 'Trump 2016: Seriously ladies, you could lose a few pounds,'" Colbert proposed.

Ironically, Colbert noted, “That kind of brutal honesty takes courage, because Trump weighs 236 pounds, which at his height is technically obese."
