Colbert Mercilessly Mocks Much-Ridiculed Photo Featuring 'Flesh-Eating' Trump Kids

The Trump campaign has some interesting ideas for engaging with millennial voters, including a campaign ad featuring the Trump children. First tweeted by Donald Trump Jr., the infamous photo featuring Ivanka Trump and the eldest Trump brothers has been memed mercilessly:


So Tuesday night, CBS "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert naturally took the mockery and ran with it, posing as the fashion photographer who may have directed the Trump children. 

"Shot over their shoulders, with each blank-faced photo looking exactly the same," Colbert said, adding, “You’re young, you’re fabulous, you’re Trump children, give that to me. Yes, absolutely! You’re inhuman monsters, you rule the night, you feast on human flesh!”

“I want your eyes to be dead—nothing, okay?” Colbert directed. “You just realized that you’ll live in a gilded cage for the rest of your life and there’s no escape.” He added, “Give me that look that says you’ve all agreed to never talk about that homeless man you killed as children, just for fun.”
