“Who paid for the rallies? I mean, they were authentic, and drew people of all ages – so we know it wasn’t Pepsi,” Colbert guessed.
Not many people had time to worry about taxes, when we’re about to go to war with North Korea. The U.S. sent Veep Mike Pence to the DMZ, who has his work cut out for him, what with a North Korean UN rep warning “thermonuclear war could break out at any moment.”
“This show pre-tapes, so if you’re watching at home right now: We made it!” Colbert grinned, noting this time it isn’t North Korea with the erratic, trigger happy leader. According to one Russian official, Trump is more impulsive and unpredictable than Kim Jong-Un.
