Stephen Colbert mocks Trump's plan to take off first weekend as POTUS
Stephen Colbert isn’t sold on Donald Trump’s plan to take off his first weekend as president after being sworn in Friday.
On Tuesday’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the host mocked Trump for telling the Times of London that he doesn’t intend to get down to business until Monday because Trump doesn’t “want to be signing and get it mixed up with lots of celebration.”
“I don’t understand how it’s that confusing,” Colbert joked. “How do you mix up signing with celebrating? ‘I’m sorry, I thought I was giving out an autograph; instead, I accidentally gave back the Louisiana Purchase.'”
He apparently thinks the president gets Saturdays and Sundays off. Instead of ‘Hail to the Chief,’ it’s going to be ‘Everybody’s working for the weekend,'” Colbert joked.
The Late Show airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.
