Stephen Colbert thinks Elon Musk wants to send Donald Trump to Mars

CBS

Posted on

Stephen Colbert connected a few dots in his monologue on Wednesday night. While talking about the plan by “visionary billionaire and guy who’s one lab accident away from being a supervillain” Elon Musk to send people to Mars by 2022, Colbert noticed that the proposed price tag for this trip was a little hefty at $10 billion a pop.

“Finally, a plan to shoot billionaires into space! I believe we have gotten a photo of the project managers,” Colbert said, unveiling a picture of populist politicians Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren Photoshopped onto lab coat-clad scientists.

Colbert then realized that $10 billion is exactly how much Donald Trump claims he’s worth, and figured it couldn’t be a coincidence.

“Elon Musk wants Donald Trump off the planet! I’ll tell you what, if Donald won’t pony up, I say we pass around the hat,” Colbert said, unveiling a ‘Make Mars Great Again’ hat. “Wouldn’t you know? ‘Made on Venus.'”
