Colbert Mocks Trump’s 4th of July Plans by Announcing Special Event on December 31st

Recently President Donald Trump recently announced plans for a “Salute to America” on July 4th.

Trump also talked about the plans for the event at CPAC last week.

Stephen Colbert mocked the announcement and said, as Trump, “I’ve decided Washington is going to have a party on the 4th of July. There will be big parades with floats using a new invention of mine––wheels.”

Colbert said the only difference between normal 4th of July plans in D.C. and Trump’s idea is “now we have to listen to you give a speech.”

And so he decided to announce plans for a big event on December 31st to take place in Times Square: “A Salute to Time.”
