Abbi Jacobson theorizes what would be in Donald Trump's bag

Posted on

Abbi Jacobson is usually associated with Broad City co-conspirator Ilana Glazer, but on Wednesday night, she appeared on The Late Show by herself. Even she seemed a little surprised, telling host Stephen Colbert, “I feel like I should have someone with me.” But Jacobson was there to promote her new book, Carry This Book, which is full of illustrations about what Jacobson imagines famous people like Beyoncé and Hillary Clinton carry with them.

Colbert highlighted some of the book’s illustrations and asked Jacobson to explain them. The Donald Trump page, for example, contains everything from Building Walls for Dummies to a variety of self-tanning lotions.

“I had to really research different self-tanning lotions,” Jacobson said. “There’s a lot, but I wanted to include a lot more. I think he really does like these See’s Candies, and I’m sure See’s Candies will hate that I did that.”

Colbert wanted to know why Tic-Tacs weren’t included, given their infamous reference on the Trump-Billy Bush tape. Jacobson admitted that the Trump page was one of the first drawings she did for the book, and thus predates several of the Republican presidential candidate’s recent scandals.

“I would probably update Trump’s daily,” Jacobson said.
