Jon Stewart Predicts Trump's Next Set of Executive Orders with Stephen Colbert
After 10 days and 20 executive orders, "Late Night" host Stephen Colbert couldn't help but wonder if the Trump administration has much left to do.
"He's pulled out of trade deals, approved the border wall, revived the Keystone Pipeline. I just gotta imagine though... he's gotta be done. There can't be any more of these executive orders. I just don't see—"
"He's got more, he's got more, trust me, he's got more," Jon Stewart interrupted, wearing a waist-length tie and dead animal hat. The guest star joined his former colleague on stage as the crowd roared.
Stewart predicted the next order would be border security-related.
"China will immediately send us their wall," Stewart hypothesized, imagining the next order: "I, Donald J. Trump, have instructed my staff to speak only in bullsh*t. Bullsh*t all the time. Immersion, it's the only way to be fluent," he added.
"I, Donald J. Trump, am exhausting," Stewart ranted. "It has been 11 days, Stephen. Eleven f*cking days. Eleven. The presidency is supposed to age the president, not the public."
He called on the audience to hold Trump accountable:
"No one action will be adequate, all action will be necessary, and if we do not allow Donald Trump to exhaust our fight and somehow come through this presidency calamity-less and constitutionally, partially intact, then I, Donald J. Trump, will have demonstrated the greatness of America—just not the way I thought I was going to."
