Colbert Has the Perfect Headline for Trump/Obama Meeting - and It's a Whopper

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert has a small suggestion for reporters out there attempting to normalize Trump now that he's President-elect: Don't. 

"[A Trump presidency is] so real, that Trump is now receiving the classified daily intelligence briefing known as 'the book,' making it the only book he owns that doesn't have his picture on it," Colbert remarked. 

And, as for the the age-old peaceful transfer of power between the current and future president, Colbert did not mince words when reflecting on the post-election meeting President Obama and President-elect Trump. 

"The most surprising remake of 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner,'" Colbert called the White House event. "Didn't see that one coming," he added. 

The meeting was also closed to the press, leaving Colbert to speculate as to what was said behind closed doors. 

"Can you imagine?" Colbert asked. "Just put yourself in that private room when they were together, Can you imagine? Awkward. The first African American President sitting down with a President-elect who is endorsed by the Klan. A guy who spent five years, created his political career demanding Obama prove where he was born, then denying he did it. What did they talk about?"
