Stephen Colbert was, of course, his usual hilarious self in last night's opening monologue, except so much of Trump's performance just wasn't funny.

Colbert went right for the jugular over Trump's statement that he was going to "reveal" whether he accepts the outcome of the election at a later time.

"I guess we're all going to have to wait until November 9th to find out if we still have a country! If Donald Trump is in the mooood for a peaceful transfer of power Or if he's going to wipe his fat ass with the Constitution!"

He didn't leave Clinton alone, either.

"If I heard correctly, Hillary Clinton took the position that toddlers killing people equals bad. I don't know where she finds the courage to say something like that."

Stick around for the part where Trump says he should have won an Emmy. Stephen thinks so too.
