Host of CBS’s “The Late Show” Stephen Colbert says that on his show he tries to make Donald Trump “upset.”

In an interview with Playbook, Colbert said, “Donald’s a friend. We’re from the same industry: entertainment. And I doubt that there is a joke that you could make about Donald Trump that would actually upset him. I really think so, because Lord knows we’ve tried.”

“And he is still open to coming on the show, and he’s — I think he understands entertainment,” Colbert said. “I don’t think he takes these comedy shows seriously.”

When asked if he can Trump talk “off air,” Colbert said, “No comment. I’m going to refer you to counsel on that one.”
