Stephen Colbert Calls Trump A D*ck For His Spat With CNN’s Jim Acosta
Comedian Stephen Colbert called President Donald Trump a “d*ck,” on “The Late Show” Wednesday, for arguing with CNN’s Jim Acosta at a post-election press conference.
Colbert played a soundbite of Trump shaming Acosta for embarrassing CNN and for continuing to shout extra questions, even after his time had expired. (RELATED: CNN’s Jim Acosta Says Press ‘Can’t Be Intimidated’ After Spat With Trump)
“I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them,” Trump told Acosta Wednesday. “You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN. You are a very rude person. The way that you treat [press secretary] Sarah Huckabee is horrible. And the way that you treat other people are horrible. You shouldn’t treat people that way.”
“What a dick,” Colbert said. “Did you see that woman try to grab Jim Acosta’s mic? She tried to snatch it right out of his hand. She looked like the wedding deejay who just realized the best man is loaded. ‘Okay, Tony. Okay, Tony, that’s enough. We all think Sara’s beautiful in that dress, but please stop using the word delicious.'”
Colbert played a clip of Trump arguing with CNN’s April Ryan and did his own impression of the president.
“I hate racist questions. I love racist limericks,” Colbert said. “There once was a brown guy from Guam — and it gets a little sexy from — let’s just say— let’s just say it involves his mom.”
