Considering the circumstances and the subject matter, comedian Lewis Black might seem just a little too chipper in today’s clip. Black is upbeat, cracking wise, delivering one laugh-line after another.

But then again, the “miserable Jew” thrives on human misfortune.

Black tells Stephen Colbert that he favors a new amendment to the U.S. Constitution aimed directly at President Trump’s bugle. Like a citizen of Whoville suddenly taking up arms against a Grinch in the White House, there are certain pleasures of summer that he is determined not to let 45 pluck out of our lives.

Enjoy the roasted beast.
