Stephen Colbert can’t understand how Donald Trump became the presumptive GOP presidential nominee so he sought out Jon Stewart on last night’s “Late Show,” hoping that the former “Daily Show” host could explain the acidic billionaire’s rise in the Republican party. Stewart has been living off-the-grid so Donald’s popularity with conservatives came as a shock.
Raw Story reports:
Putting aside his chi kombucha, Colbert invited his friend in for some kale jerky, but desperately begged him to forego his beard care to explain how Donald Trump became the Republican nominee for president.
Stewart played dumb, pretending he didn’t know Trump was the nominee and after a hilarious spit-take wondered how the hell it happened.
When Colbert revealed that the GOP nominee is Donald Trump, Stewart spit his coffee out. “WHAT!,” Stewart remarked in disbelief. “The guy from ‘The Apprentice?,'” Stewart asked.
“The guy who did a McDonald’s commercial with Grimace?,” asked Stewart. “Same guy,” Colbert replied. “The guy who filed for bankruptcy in 1991?” Stewart asked.
“And ’92,” Colbert replied. “And 2004,” Stewart continued.“ And 2009,” Colbert said.
“That guy! Mike Tyson’s business advisor? That guy?” Stewart asked. “Indeed, the same guy,” Colbert said. “The guy whose eyes look like tiny versions of his mouth?” Stewart asked.
“The guy who looks like an angry creamsicle,” Colbert remarked.
“Decomposing jack-o-lantern,” Stewart said.
“Human toupee hybrid,” said Colbert. “That guy,” ‘Stewart asked.
“A guy who looks like he’s actually wearing a Donald Trump costume?” a perplexed Jon Stewart asked.
“Yes, a loose-fitting one at that!” Colbert said.
“The guy who wrote, and I quote, ‘Oftentimes, when I was sleeping with one of the top women of the world, I would say to myself, ‘can you believe what I am getting.’ That guy?” Stewart asked.
“Yes! The same guy who said, and I quote, ‘I have black guys counting my money. I hate it. The only guys I want counting my money are short guys that wear yamakas all day,’” Colbert said. “So you can see why I’m here. You understand what I’m asking for.”
Stewart then brought in the Republican version of Stephen Colbert to explain the situation, but he also didn’t realize Trump was the GOP nominee. When he was told by Stewart, he spit his coffee out, too.
