WATCH LIVE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DAY 3

Colbert Rips Trump For Battle With Jim Acosta: ‘What a D*ck’

On Wednesday night, Stephen Colbert blasted President Donald Trump over his fiery news conference he held earlier in the day.

Trump had a heated exchange with CNN reporter Jim Acosta, or as Colbert referred to him as, one of the president’s “favorite chew toys,” over the migrant caravan.

“Honestly I think you should let me run the country, you run CNN,” Trump told Acosta. “And if you did it well, your ratings would be much higher.”

Well, Colbert had three little words for the president.

“What a d*ck,” Colbert reacted.

The Late Show host mocked the female White House aide who attempted to take the microphone from Acosta.

“Did you see that woman try to grab Jim Acosta’s mic? She tried to snatch it right out of his hand. She looked like the wedding DJ who just realized the best man is loaded,” Colbert continued. “‘Okay, Tony. Okay, Tony, that’s enough. We all think Sara’s beautiful in that dress, but please stop using the word ‘delicious.'”

Colbert then ripped Trump for accusing a question about his nationalism rhetoric of being “racist” and had some fun at the president’s expense when another reporter correct Trump about his “high” favorability with African Americans, which is currently at 8%.

“Technically, it has gone down to 7% since Kanye got out of politics,” Colbert quipped.
