Stephen Colbert Gives Trump 4th Degree Burns In Emmy Opener

Someone send a gallon of burn cream to the White House, stat.

The opening monologue dragged Donald Trump so hard, he definitely sustained burns so deep, his thin skin may not ever heal. From bringing up old tweets about Seth Meyers to ridiculing Trump for never winning an Emmy (snort) to parading Sean Spicer out on a rolling podium to confirm the YUUUGE crowd size, the hits just kept on coming.

Twitter went nuts:

Kal Penn, as always, reminded us to not normalize Spicer:

We are only 19 minutes in. Methinks this "Trump mocking" will only get worse. Did Kelly take his phone away? How many angry tweets will Trump send by 6:00am tomorrow?
