Stephen Colbert Attempts To Swear Off Covering Donald Trump And Oreos... Fails Miserably

The Late Show's Stephen Colbert had a bit of fun with the GOP front runner, Donald Trump, during his debut this Tuesday night.

The Late Show's Stephen Colbert had a bit of fun with the GOP front runner Donald Trump during his debut this Tuesday night. Colbert did a bit of catching up since his show has been off the air on Comedy Central, and even though he initially swore that just one Trump story would be enough to satisfy him, he almost managed to O.D. on Oreo cookies while attempting to swear off having too many of either at the same time:

“Guys,” Colbert asks. “Can we talk about the election for a second?” True to his promise about telling lots of Donald Trump jokes, he shows a clip of Trump talking about how Nabisco moved a factory to Mexico, so he’s never eating Oreos again. Colbert starts eating an Oreo to make a point, and gets distracted because it’s so delicious. [...]

“Trump’s anti-Oreo stance put other Republicans in a tough spot here…he’s forcing them to decide between alienating Latino voters and eating a Hydrox,” Colbert says, gagging at the thought of the Oreo alternative. Colbert helps himself to several more clips of Trump, including the one where a woman pulls at Trump’s hair to see if it’s real. “See? What’s on top of his head is actually his,” Colbert notes, between stuffing Oreos in his mouth. “Now it’s up to science to decide whether it’s actually hair.”
