When Stephen Colbert reviews the latest Trump effusions, he often goes a little deeper. Like when the president, in defending his demagogic uproar about that âcaravanâ in Central America, warned that suspicious characters of âMiddle Easternâ origin were infiltrating across the border.
Citing his own supposed contacts with the Border Patrol, Trump said they had intercepted âwonderful people from the Middle East and some bad ones. Theyâve intercepted wonderful people from South America. And from other parts, further south.â
This puzzles both Stephen and bandleader Jon Batiste. Further south than South America? âOh my God!â exclaims the host. âDid Border Patrol arrest terror penguins?â Thereâs even photographic proof.
Well, actually, âthereâs no proofâ¦thereâs no proof of anything,â as Trump ultimately concedes. But that doesnât stop or even slow him down. He’s promising a tax cut “before November but after the election.”
Itâs hilarious that this individual is president. In a very sick way.
