Stephen Colbert Demolishes Trump's Disturbing Cabinet Meeting Befitting 'Dear Leader'

After "infrastructure week" quickly turned into "Comey week," "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert opened Monday night's show with one obvious indicator that "things are really going poorly inside the White House right now."


President Trump started "workforce development week" by holding his first full Cabinet meeting, something that usually happens earlier in a presidency. 

"But it was hard to schedule around all their meetings with the Russian ambassador [Sergey Kislyak]," Colbert quipped.

Trump's Cabinet meeting began with the president touting his many "accomplishments" over his 143 days in office. 

"Never has there been a president... with few exceptions... who's passed more legislation, who's done more things than I have," Trump boasted.

As for those "few exceptions," Franklin D. Roosevelt "had a major Depression to handle."

“Mr. President, don’t sell yourself short,” Colbert remarked in response. “Since you got elected, many people have a major depression to handle.”

Once Trump finished, his staff showered him with lavish praise

“Mr. President, all of us here want to thank you for having such a big, beautiful behind, so all of us in the Cabinet can just smooch it at the same time,” Colbert mocked.

“Personally, I cannot get over these fawning Cabinet members,” added Colbert. “These are adults, some of them billionaires, and they’re just happy to have their leashes yanked as cameras roll for the dear leader. I did not know that Trump has a strict ‘please check your balls at the door’ policy.”
