Colbert’s Report Character Returns for Epic Take Down of ‘Trumpiness’

On Monday night, Late Show host Stephen Colbert ditched his usual programming in favor of his alter ego: Stephen Colbert.

Of course, the regular late night show host who anchors the Last Show from the Ed Sullivan Theater is the man himself, who left behind his ignorant blowhard faux-conservative personality at Comedy Central last year. Well, just in time for the Republican National Convention and the coronation of Donald Trump as an official Presidential nominee, Colbert was back in full-force character for an epic return that had the crowd chanting the iconic “Ste-phen! Ste-phen!” opening.

Colbert brought back The Word, the fan-favorite segment from The Colbert Report, which earned an awesome reaction from the crowd:

At one point, Colbert noted during the segment, “Eleven years ago, I invented a word: Truthiness,” referring to the old show’s pilot episode that featured the first ever Word segment. On the screen to Colbert’s right flashed the comedic conceit: “Trademark Viacom 2005, All Rights Reserved.”

Watch the above segment from the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
