WATCH: Colbert Mocks Trump's Needy Demand for Folders Full of ‘F**king Positive News’ About Himself Twice a Day

On Friday, “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert took on reports that President Donald Trump’s staffers are forced to provide him with folders of positive news and photos to keep the leader of the free world happy.


“The president, he spends a lot of time on the frowny farm, but he receives a folder full of positive news about himself twice a day,” Colbert relayed. “Positive news about Trump twice a day? Man, he should really share that with the rest of the world.”

“The folder is a 20- to 25-page packet full of praise-filled news stories delivered around 9:30am followed by a followup around 4:30pm,” he continued. “So, once after breakfast, once again after lunch.”

“And if he’s still cranky by bedtime they put up his mobile of Breitbart stories,” Colbert smirked.
