Stephen Colbert wasted no time in poking fun at Donald Trump after the president was literally laughed at during his speech in front of the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday.
Colbert told “The Late Show” viewers: “Once he made it to the UN, he jumped right into his favourite talking point: himself.”
The talk-show host played a clip of Trump addressing the crowd, in which he said how, in less than two years, his administration had accomplished more than anyone else.
As the audience laughed, Trump admitted: “Didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK,” which spurred Colbert: “Don’t worry Mr. President. They’re not laughing at you. They’re laughing with each other at you.”
Colbert’s monologue also saw him explain how the POTUS had “started picking” on all the countries of the world. However, he made sure to praise North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
Colbert laughed, “He’s working the room like an insult comic. I can’t believe the only guy he praised was Kim Jong-un. Putin is going to be jealous!”
Colbert wasn’t the only one poking fun at the president following Tuesday’s speech, with Jimmy Fallon also joking: “Trump hasn’t heard that much laughter since his night with Stormy Daniels.”
Seth Meyers then told viewers over on “Late Night”: “That’s right, President Trump claimed that he has accomplished more than any other president in history, and world leaders in the audience laughed. Though technically they were still laughing from when he said, ‘Hello, I’m the president of the United States.'”
Meanwhile, on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, the host joked that the speech was similar to “when your alcoholic uncle grabs the microphone at your wedding. No good can come of it.”
