Stephen Colbert Speaks for the Planet After Trump's Demented North Korea Threats
Stephen Colbert knows exactly where he stands on President Trump's "fire and fury" threat toward North Korea.
"I'd like to go on the record. I do not want the Earth to blow up," the "Late Show" host said. "That's where my house is."
He described the president's threatening language as being akin to telling North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, "Go ahead, kill everybody. I'll kill 'em deader. Then who wins?"
Colbert had a pitch-perfect response to Trump's suggestion that North Korea will be "in trouble like few nations have ever been in trouble" if it doesn't act responsibly: "Oh, my god. I think he just threatened to be their president."
