Stephen Colbert: Donald Trump Oreos segment highlight of first Late Show

Posted on


As host of The Late ShowStephen Colbert will spend a lot of time over the next two years discussing the 2016 presidential election. (Colbert even had Republican contender Jeb Bush as a guest on his first show.) For now, however, his focus is one one man: Donald Trump.

Using Trump’s statements about Nabisco moving some of its operations from Chicago to Mexico, Colbert mocked the former reality television host turned Republican presidential candidate frontrunner for saying he’ll no longer eat Oreos.

“I’m not surprised Donald Trump is willing to stand up to Big Cookie. After all, he’s the only candidate brave enough to deport the Keebler Elves,” Colbet said. Another joke about Trump’s anti-Oreo stance: “He’s forcing Republicans to decide between alienating Latino voters, and eating Hydrox.” The entire segment culminated in Colbert stuffing his face with a whole lot of Oreos. “I think I’m going to hate myself in the morning,” Colbert joked.
