Stephen Colbert Responds to Trump’s State of the Union with Cheeky Commentary

Stephen Colbert, Donald Trump, State of the Union

“Oh god, make this stop.” 

Just in case you value your time and didn't have a spare 90 minutes last night to watch Donald Trump's first State of the Union address, Stephen Colbert has you covered.

The Late Show host went live last night to give thoughts and critiques on Trump's speech in real time. Everything from the First Lady arriving in a separate car - "I guess Melania didn't want anything from the Burger King drive-thru" - to Trump bragging about "clean coal" was fair game.

"We are with you, we love you, and we will always pull through together," Trump said, attempting to convey a heartfelt sentiment to American citizens affected by natural disasters in 2017.

"That is going to be a comforting message to the people of Puerto Rico once they have electricity to turn on their TVs," said Colbert. "A million people in Puerto Rico still don't have power."

As Trump bragged about a record-low African American unemployment rate, Colbert said: "Well there was one time when African American unemployment was at zero - but only half of Trump's base wants to go back there."

Later, Trump shifted to the topic of religion. "In America, we know that faith and family - not government and bureaucracy - are the center of American life. The motto is: 'in God we trust," he said.

"Yes, that's the first half," said Colbert. "The second half is: oh God, make this stop."
