Fodder for his monologue on The Late Show tonight focused on POTUS’ own monologue from the previous night, when he made a wide-ranging and rails-challenged address to a North Carolina rally crowd. Among Colbert’s attack topics were Trump’s nostalgic wax-o-rama about his days hosting The Apprentice — which led to a truly odd non sequitur that gave the late-night host a chance to name-check Gary Busey and Meat Loaf.
Colbert also had some fun with the president’s difficulty in spitting out the word “district” and his fumble-then-punt on the name of Squad leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Let’s just say three names is a little time-consuming for such a fine orator who’s trying to (chuckle) stick to the script. Have a look for yourself and play along with Colbert’s name game.
