Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show kicked off the Tuesday night’s broadcast with a vintage-looking commercial poking fun at President Trump.
During a speech in Ohio on Monday, Trump slammed Democrats for not applauding during his State of the Union address and joked that they were “treasonous.”
In response, Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) blasted him on Twitter, giving him the nickname “Cadet Bone Spurs,” an obvious reference to his ailment that allowed him to avoid being drafted in the Vietnam War.
We don’t live in a dictatorship or a monarchy. I swore an oath—in the military and in the Senate—to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, not to mindlessly cater to the whims of Cadet Bone Spurs and clap when he demands I clap https://t.co/99gW1yalDl

Well, that inspired the commercial for a G.I. Joe-like action figure called “Cadet Bone Spurs.”
The narrator explains that Cadet Bone Spurs, the “Hasbro” doll that looks very similar to Trump, would “love” to charge into battle, but he “just has this thing with his heel, which causes occasional, minor foot pain.”
“Let’s go get the bad guys!” a fellow soldier tells Cadet Bone Spurs.
“You go ahead. I need to ice my shin,” Cadet Bone Spurs responded as he lays on a lounge chair with a Diet Coke in hand.
The commercial knocks Cadet Bone Spurs for avoiding playing soldier so he could “date models.”
“The rebel forces are attacking!” G.I. Joe exclaimed. “Help us, Cadet Bone Spurs!”
“I would, but my socks are tight! You know, with the swelling and all…” Cadet Bone Spurs reacted.
