Late night host Stephen Colbert implied Thursday night that the United States is a “shithole” because Donald Trump is president.
Colbert argued that Trump tried to trick the American people into thinking he is sane by having the press come to a discussion about immigration, but his true colors came out later during a private meeting.
“This afternoon, he was meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration policy,” Colbert said. “Several of these lawmakers suggested lifting restrictions for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and various African countries. Trump reportedly said, ‘why are we having all of these people from shithole countries come here?”
“Sir, they’re not shithole countries,” Colbert asserted.
“For one Donald Trump isn’t their president,” he said, seemingly claiming that the United States is a “shithole” because Trump is president.
