Stephen Colbert Trolls Trump with a Pitch-Perfect Re-Election Slogan
While Republicans search for new ways to kick millions of Americans off their health insurance, the White House has been besieged by revelations of a second (and previously undisclosed) meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit.
According to the Trump administration, "the insinuation that the White House has tried to 'hide' a second meeting is false, malicious, and absurd," "Late Night" host Stephen Colbert opened Wednesday.
"Strong words," he quipped. "And I think we've also found Trump's re-election slogan: 'Trump 2020—False, Malicious and Absurd.'"
The meeting has alarmed national security experts, who fear Trump may have disclosed information from classified briefings.
"Here's the thing," Colbert added. "I want to believe Trump here, I really want to believe that the president of the United States is just shooting the breeze with a guy he's accused of colluding with for the second time that day, for an hour. But here's why it's hard to believe him: He lies about everything. He lies about crowd size, voter fraud, till death do us part. He's the boy who cried Wolf Blitzer is fake news. This might actually be a nothingburger, but every time they tell us it's a nothingburger, it turns out to be a juicy quarter-pounder with sleaze."
