As Donald Trump continues to struggle in his attempts to find support among black voters, Stephen Colbert tried to “help” the Republican nominee on Wednesday’s episode of The Late Show by interviewing an African-American Trump supporter.
In a sketch on the late-night show, Colbert had guest Tim Meadows play a Trump supporter, one who moonlights as a con artist pretending to be Tiger Woods. “I just dress up like Tiger Woods and charge people for autographs,” Meadows’ character, P.K. Winthrop, told Colbert. “They don’t know.”
The pair discussed Trump’s assertion that “our African-American communities are absolutely in the worst shape that they’ve ever been in before. Ever, ever, ever.”
“That’s true, Stephen, unless time includes history,” Winthrop said, before adding that his standing as one of the lone black Trump supporters meant things were personally good, at least financially. Winthrop explained to Colbert how he sold anti-Obama paraphernalia, including “Obama Hitler mustaches,” and would easily transition those items to become Trump appropriate.
“Trump-staches!” Winthrop said, before putting one of the mustaches on a photo of Trump. Colbert pointed out that it made Trump look like Hitler.
“No, Stephen, he becomes a powerful leader who knows how to rally the people with his powerful oratory skills,” Winthrop replied. “You know what I mean? Like Charlie Chaplin.”
