#EndorseThis: Colbert Likens Trump To Your Racist Grandpa

President Trump’s impromptu presser in the Trump Tower lobby in Manhattan on Tuesday — during which he went off-script and explicitly suggested that some of the TIKI torch-wielding white supremacists marching in the weekend’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, weren’t neo-Nazis —  was “one for the ages,” says Stephen Colbert: “Specifically 1939 to 1945.”

#EndorseThis: Awakening In Trump’s America, Stephen Colbert Throws Up

Naturally, Stephen Colbert was impressed by the tens of thousands of angry Americans who descended on airports all over country in protest of that order. “Do you have any idea how angry people have to be to voluntarily go to JFK?” Still, we know that the immigration order and its implementation was “a massive success story on every single level” because a White House source said so — anonymously, which is how everyone boasts about a massive success story.
