Stephen Colbert had an exclusive “interview” with President Donald Trump on Monday’s episode of CBS’s “The Late Show” to mark Trump’s first 100 days in office.
Colbert’s “interview” spliced together quotes from Trump’s interview with John Dickerson of “CBS Face the Nation” and questions posed by Colbert.
“I love your show,” Trump says, to which Colbert replied, “I love your show too — it’s hilarious.”
Colbert asks Trump what people are saying about his presidency. Trump replies, “People are saying, ‘Is he sane?’ I have no idea.’”
Trump then appears to admit to not knowing the consequences of starting a nuclear war — which Trump says he “was all set to do” — and Colbert lets him know a nuclear war would mean the destruction of his golf courses.
“I would not be happy,” Trump says.
Colbert ends by asking Trump how he would sum up his first hundred days in office. Trump replies, “It’s hurting the country.”
