“Thank you for watching, sir,” Colbert said. “But I’m not surprised. I mean, he’s a 77-year-old white guy. Of course, he’s watching CBS.”
He also spotted something unusual in Trump’s middle-of-the-night post on his Truth Social website.
Trump called the late-night shows “poorly rated and not at all funny” and claimed they were a “major” campaign contribution to Democrats, then added: “Watch what is going on ― so interesting!”
“I know you meant that as an insult, but that really sounds like the kind of rave review you wanna slap on a Times Square billboard,” Colbert said. “So today, we did that.”
Colbert showed footage of a massive video billboard for “The Late Show” in Times Square with a pic of himself and Trump’s words, attributed to the former president in big letters.
“Sir, thank you for the endorsement,” Colbert said. “I hope you get a chance to check out the billboard on the way to your next court appearance or Bubba Gump shrimp appearance.”
