Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Like so many Trump speeches, especially now, the president’s address to energy workers in Louisiana was a rambling mess. He got to the bayou on the taxpayer’s dime, but largely talked trash about his potential Democratic opponents, including “Boot-edge-edge,” “Pocahontas,” and “What the Hell Happened to Joe Biden.”

And like any other Trump speech, this one is much funnier with meta-commentary by Stephen Colbert. When the president veers onto a tangent about the dangers of wind power, Colbert knows what’s really on his mind: fried chicken, extra crispy.

But Colbert himself is preoccupied with Trump’s trade war. What is it good for? He explains, and you’ll laugh.
