Colbert Ridicules Trump Campaign's Lack Of Spontaneity

The Late Show's host exposes the flaws of the campaign's use of scripted answers during interviews.

Stephen Colbert has no shortage of comedic material thanks to the GOP's most unqualified and dishonest candidate, Donald Trump. This past weekend featured a few awkward moments for Trump during his African-American voter outreach effort, and Colbert nails it as usual.

COLBERT: He's got a bit of a problem with some voters, a lot of people think he might be racist, and then there are the people who don't vote for him. (Laughter)

He reminds us that Trump's popularity is at ZERO PERCENT with the Black demographic,

which can only mean one thing: Amarosa is not registered to vote.

He references Dr. Ben Carson as 'The Black Dilbert' and shows the clip of his momentary surprise when he fears his luggage is missing, mid-interview on CNN. Then Colbert shows the Talking Yam swaying awkwardly in a Black Church.

Stephen describes the swaying as his signature dance move: "shift a little left, shift a little right same thing he does with his immigration policy." This evokes a roar of laughter from the audience that is likely filled with people who find Trump utterly ridiculous. Where are these people in the latest polls that give Drumpf a chance in this election?

Mr. Trump sat down with Bishop Wayne T. Johnson for an interview. This interview was conducted after his campaign received a list of the questions and formed scripted answers. Colbert was joined by a satirical Trump spokesperson, Jennifer Alderson. The back and forth was a parody of what an interview with a Trump surrogate where there are zero substantive answers to the actual questions. He asked her to put away the cards, one which ironically claimed that Trump's responses were 'off the cuff.'

The faux surrogate finally said,

"why should I give you spontaneous answers when I can just read from this script?"

Point well taken!

Colbert and Alderson got a bit hung up when she mispronounced squinted as 'squirted,' which Colbert found especially hilarious. Hopefully, after this sketch, perhaps a few more voters will notice that he is a fraudulent, pre-scripted imposter who has no interest in really becoming POTUS. All we can do is try to laugh and hope people vote against this man, for the safety and sanity of this country. Thanks Colbert, keep it up!
