Stephen Colbert took on the bizarre campaign development of a political feud between Donald Trump and Pope Francis. “It’s like Jesus said: Blessed are the poor — unless they said something bad about me, then screw ’em.”

“Now I want to try to broker a peace between these two men,” Colbert added. “Mr. Trump, Mr. Pope — I believe that’s his formal name — is it possible that you guys are fighting because you have so much in common? After all, both think you’re infallible; and you both sit on golden thrones; and you both wear very silly things on your heads.”

Stephen also sat down with a very special guest: Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, who talked about his new venture into incisive coverage of the presidential campaign.

James Corden said of the Trump-Pope feud: “I know what you’re thinking: There go the Pope’s chances of being on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice.”

Seth Meyers examined the dispute between Apple and the FBI, which is invoking a law from 1789 to try to pressure Apple into developing software to break into the iPhone of the San Bernardino terrorists: “That’s right, the FBI is using a 1789 law to get into an iPhone — 1789, a time when people only used BlackBerries.”

  1. Sand_Cat says:

    More bravado and BS from Trump when asked to behave as what he claims to be.

    • Dominick Vila says:

      Don’t forget what The Donald said a couple of weeks ago: He will start behaving like a grown up AFTER the election. In the interim, he has to entertain the Republican children.

      • Sand_Cat says:

        Bad as he is, he scares me less than Cruz. The latter’s “Christianity” seems to be of the particularly cruel and nasty type shared by many Republicans. Trump’s just a blowhard hypocrite. In politics – especially GOP politics – these days, hypocrisy is a required trait.

  2. “After sparring with the Pope, the challenger El Trumpo, is dancing around the ring, shadow-boxing, doing some fancy foot-work, and brazen enough to shout out ‘bring on God !!—I’ll take on anyone in the universe’.

    The challenger’s atrabillious amphigory[refer to Bob and Ray’s “The Sore Loser”] on the campaign trail has been unparalleled in American political pugilism.”

    This is Howard Cosell with FOX NEWS sports affiliate at ring-side here down South. We’ll be back in a moment.
