U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has been tweeting up a storm ever since winning the election last week, but the constant Twitter chatter is annoying Stephen Colbert.
“The Late Show” host calls out Trump, who recently singled out The New York Times for their coverage: “For the President-elect to be tweeting at all is just weird. It just feels strange, doesn’t it?”
Colbert then plays a clip from Rep. Chris Collins, who defended Trump’s 140-character statements. “The enormity of the job ahead of him, and so I would have to say if this is his way of relaxing, God bless him,” says Collins. Colbert quips: “Is this really how we’re going to treat the Commander-in-Chief? He likes it, it’s fun. Let him play with the button, it calms him down. It’s shiny and red like a toy.”
The comedian and political commentator is having none of that, boldly stating: “I’m going to call bulls**t on this. Twitter isn’t Trump’s entertainment, it’s his way around the press.”
“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
