Colbert Mocks Romney's Humiliating Dinner With Trump

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert is back from his Thanksgiving break just in time for Mitt Romney humiliating dinner date with the President-elect in New York.

"It's hard to know what he's doing," Colbert said of Trump, adding that "The last time Donald Trump held a news conference was July 27."

And since Trump was elected, he's been treating the press like paparazzi, forcing journalists to "trick" their way into reporting on "the man who's going to have our nuclear launch codes," Colbert noted.

"It's all about reservations," Colbert continued, applauding the enterprising reporters who reserved a table at Jean Georges after receiving a tip Trump may be there. "And I have a lot of them."

And the look on Romney's face that night said it all; he was there to eat crow.

Meanwhile, “the ‘billionaire of the people’ ordered young garlic soup with thyme and sautéed frog legs,” Colbert said.

“I thought he said he was going to drain the swamp, not eat its contents," he joked.

GOP Chair Reince Priebus was also present at the meeting (although the name does sound like a dish on the menu). 

But while Romney is up for Secretary of State, it's hard to forget his infamous anti-Trump speech during the primaries. 

According to Romney, Trump was “a phony and a fraud,” whose promises were "as worthless as a degree from his bogus university."

“I bet those frog’s legs taste a little bit like Trump’s balls,” Colbert said in response.
