Colbert Issues Apology to Trump: ‘I’m Sorry You’re President’

Stephen Colbert went after President Trump Monday night in a scathing monologue which culminated with the “Late Show” host issuing an “apology” for Trump having become president.

The comedian mocked a recent Trump tweet in which the president demanded an apology in light of new reports about the Obama administration failing to act on Russia’s election meddling.

“I’m a big enough man to apologize,” Colbert responded.

“And I believe I speak for the majority of Americans when I say this: I’m sorry you’re president,” he said to raucous cheers.

Earlier in the monologue, Colbert mocked Trump for referring to himself as “T” in other recent tweets.

 

“Who the hell is ‘T’? he asked, showing a  photo-shopped “new presidential photo” of the president looking like Mr. T.

Colbert has blasted Trump consistently on his show, including in a widely-criticized monologue last month in which he used a vulgar term to refer to the president’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Colbert was in Russia last week filming segments for the show in St. Petersburg.
