Stephen Colbert Does the Impossible: Donald Trump Shuts Down on Birtherism After Confrontation
Donald Trump has seen his fair share of controversy, from his outrageous comments on immigration to his denial of President Barack Obama’s legitimate American citzenship.
Trump appeared on an episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The two briefly discussed immigration, the Mexican wall, and Obama’s birth status.
Trump stood by his promise that he would have a wall built and make Mexico pay for it. Following that topic, Colbert suggested that he was going to give Trump a rare opportunity to move on from a long standing argument.
“I’m gonna throw you up a big fat meatball for you to hit out of the park right now,” the Late Show host said. “This is the last time you ever have to address this question if you hit the ball. Barack Obama: born in the United States?”
“It’s a meatball! It’s hanging out there!”
“I don’t talk about it anymore,” the real estate magnate said after a few seconds. “I talk about jobs, I talk about our veterans being horribly treated. I just don’t discuss it anymore”
“You know that meatball is now being dragged down the steps of the subway by a rat right now,” Colbert retorted. “You missed the meatball.”
“I’m talking about the vets, who are treated like third-class citizens,” Trump said. “They’re treated worse than the illegals. The vets of this country are so mistreated.”
