Stephen Colbert has returned from a short break, while the U.S. government has not.
So, to catch up, the Late Show host spent ten glorious minutes on Monday night absolutely roasting the president’s now 17-day shutdown of the government, in which Donald Trump has demanded $5.7 billion to build his border wall.
Colbert gleefully slammed Trump’s claims that former presidents told him the wall should have already been built (they didn’t), and that Barack Obama had the absolute nerve to build walls (!) around his property (he didn’t).
Along with a solid Pong reference, Colbert made up for his absence during Trump’s misguided Game of Thrones-themed propaganda campaign with a deep burn.
“I can understand why Trump loves that Game of Thrones wall,” quipped Colbert. “Because the only walkers who got through were white.”
