The world continues to react after President Donald Trump promised “fire, fury, and frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before” if North Korea continued to threaten the United States.
For his monologue on Tuesday’s episode of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, Colbert addressed Trump’s speech and pleaded for the president to stop.
“I don’t want to be alarmist, but we’re all gonna die,” Colbert said.
After sharing recent reports from U.S. intelligence analysts that North Korea is developing missile-ready nuclear weapons, Colbert had one thing to say: “My God, Dennis Rodman, did you do nothing?!”
“Thankfully, faced with the greatest challenge of his presidency, Donald Trump stepped up and, in a moment of pure statesmanship, de-escalated the rhetoric and brought calm to our worried nation. Just kidding!” Colbert joked.
Colbert ducked for cover after showing a clip of Trump threatening “fire and fury” and ended his monologue with one final statement. “Shut up! You’ll get us all killed! And I just started ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’,” Colbert asked Trump.
