Stephen Colbert to North Korea: Stop ‘Talking Smack’ About Donald Trump
The Late Show host Stephen Colbert did something a bit surprising during his Friday night monologue: he asked less people to make fun of President Donald Trump. Specifically, he asked for North Koreans to ease up on the Trump jokes, though only because he and other Americans should be able to do so. “North Korea, NoKo, you are not allowed to insult our leader like that. Sure, I’ve had my problems with President Trump, such as everything he has said and done, but I’m not gonna stand here as an American and let somebody from another country talk smack about our President,” Colbert joked. After Trump&r...
