Listen to Stephen Colbert Practically Dare Donald Trump to make Late Show Return: ‘He’s a Chicken’


“He’s a chicken.”

So says Late Show host Stephen Colbert about republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. In an episode of The Bill Carter Interview set to air Monday on SiriusXM, the Late Show host said that he doesn’t think Trump — who appeared on the show in September 2015 — has the guts to return.

“I regret that that’s probably the only bite I’m going to get at that apple,” Colbert said.

“I would have him on tomorrow, but he’s a coward.”

Colbert also weighed in on USA Today’s unprecedented rebuke of Trump.

“There’s never been a general election like this before where there’s like a mainstream, or supposed – what you’d imagine is a mainstream rejection of one of the candidates,” Colbert said. “USA Today for God’s sake. The thing that gets slipped underneath your door. The cartoon page masquerading as a newspaper.”

As to how Colbert thinks his jokes will be received by Trump?

“He’s got a great sense of humor about himself,” Colbert said, dryly. “I’m sure he won’t mind.”

Check out the clips above, via SiriusXM. The complete interview will air Monday at 6:00 p.m. ET on SiriusXM’s Insight Channel 121.
