Stephen Colbert dissected Donald Trump’s ability to cover up old controversies by creating crazier ones in a scathing installment of his recently revived segment, “The Werd,” on The Late Show Tuesday.
The bit centered around Trump’s response to Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the parents of a fallen American soldier who slammed Trump for his anti-Muslim rhetoric during the Democratic National Convention. The “werd” Trump’s belittling statements about the Khans evoked: “What the Family?” which was shortened on the graphic — for spatial reasons, he insisted — to read, “What the F?”
Colbert ticked off the myriad controversies Trump has started over the last year, including his statements about Mexican immigrants, John McCain’s war record, Megyn Kelly, the size of his penis and banning Muslims from entering the U.S. Along the way, Colbert called Trump a total “Dad Bag” (shorted to “D-Bag,” again for space) and “Person of Society (“P.O.S.”), and warned about the dangers of letting Trump bury each awful thing he says.
“If he succeeds at making us forget, I think he’ll get to say the craziest thing I can imagine,” Colbert said as the opening words to the presidential oath of office appeared beside him. “And if that day comes, ladies and gentlemen, we are all fff-amilied.”
