Donald Trump is a supporter of Mitt Romney. He’s also making every effort to re-energize the birther movement. So we all knew it wouldn’t be long until Stephen Colbert chimed in on ‘The Donald.’
During The Colbert Report on Tuesday night, Colbert slammed Trump for once again accusing President Obama of not being born in America. Showing an image of a very orange Donald, Colbert referred to Trump as a “real estate billionaire and basketball with tooth veneers.” Colbert then showed an image of Barack Obama’s 1991 author bio which stated in error that Obama was born in Kenya. Colbert said “everybody’s saying that this was just some kind of clerical error but Trump knows better,” then showed an image of Donald Trump as an orange and a May 25th quote in which Donald stated, “He didn’t know he was running for President, so he told the truth.”
Colbert then demonstrated how Trump is creative with the truth, playing audio of Trump saying that he has a “good relationship with the Blacks.” Colbert went on to play a clip of George Will ripping Trump as a “bloviated ignoramous.” Colbert continued by hilariously poInting out how Romney can’t repudiate Trump and showing a poll that shows Obama leading Romney by 2 points, and playing a clip of Romney saying he needs 50.1% of the vote.
