Unlike mainstream media pundits, Stephen Colbert isn’t buying the notion that Donald Trump suddenly becomes presidential by reading a mediocre speech off a teleprompter. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t pleased by Trump’s journey overseas.

“I’ve got a little extra pep in my step,” admits the Late Show host, “because Donald Trump has left the country.” He stops to muse: “Maybe this is a good time to reinstate that travel ban. He is coming from a dangerous place. Extreme vetting! That’s all I’m asking for.”

Nor does Stephen hold back on Trump’s stopover in Riyadh, where King Salman hung a gold medal around his neck. Noting that “Trump gave Obama a ton of grief for bowing to the Saudi king, no way was he going to bow.” But the tape tells a different story: “Wait, there he is, going from the knees, and a bow — and a curtsey! He did a little curtsey at the end there, very nice.” (In fact, he did.)

Then there was Trump’s Saudi Shuffle in that charming sword dance. And Trump’s speech, which to Stephen’s ear sounded like a real estate timeshare pitch. And Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’ idiotic observation that there were no anti-Trump protesters in Riyadh, not even “one guy with a placard.” Could that have anything to do with the Saudi habit of decapitating dissenters?

    Yeah, I thought to comment about there being no protesters was a bit ridiculous! Apparently, our brilliant group of statesmen are as stupid as they seem! You’d think they would know the reason why there were no protesters. As for Trump and his little “bow and curtsy,” of course he’s going to bow and curtsy….someone is giving him some gold and we ALL know how much he LOVES gold!

      When president Obama had the audacity to do the bow and curtsy when in Saudi Arabia Trump was whining very loudly. Then when he does it he’s being treated like royalty so it’s cool now. What a loser the hypocritical whiny little orange haired freak is ????

        Well it’s always been a double standard with the republicans and this pseudo republican, trump has enlightened even his hardened fans of this and if it hasn’t, if they waive this incident off then truly they are a lost cause.

      • InformedVoter says:

        Sorry Dapper, but you’re way off base on this one. obozo bowed to show he was lesser than the arab leaders. President Trump bent forward to receive an award. He wasn’t bowing. But for low information sheep like you, you can’t tell the difference.
        President Trump came off looking “Presidential”. obozo came off looking like a scared child. In fact, the foreign cartoons showed obozo, after bending over, reaching for the arab leader’s zipper! Oh my.

      Hello racist and bigot for using racial slurs. Your naivety shows. President Trump bowed forward to receive an award. obozo bowed to show he was lesser than the arab leaders. He wasn’t bowing to receive any award.
      This the more FAKE MSM “news” and you’re low information enough to believe it. No wonder the FAKE MSM polls were so inaccurate.
