On Monday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert said that Donald Trump has been president for more than a year:
At this point I go to bed every night believing there’s nothing he could say or do that would possibly surprise me. Then the sun comes up.” (See videos below)
Even though Trump’s proposal to arm teachers “has not been received well by people who have had or been a teacher,” he said, on Monday Trump doubled with his insane proposal:
Trump’s saying “arm the teachers” because if you’re in the pocket of the NRA, like he is, the solution is never fewer guns—the solution is always more guns.
Here’s the problem: the armed, trained deputies at the Parkland, Florida, high school did not rush in to confront the shooter. Colbert continued:
Who among us, really, could honestly say what they think they would do in that same situation?
The answer, of course, is that Trump would—or at least he says he would. On Monday the president said:
You know I really believe, you don’t know until you’re tested, but I really believe I’d run in there, even if I didn’t have a weapon, and I think most of the people in this room would’ve done that too.
Stephen Colbert couldn’t hold back:
There’s a lot in there that I doubt, but the part I really don’t believe is that he can run.
Look, sir, we already know how you react to combat situations. You got five deferments from Vietnam. What are you going to do? Run in there and stab him with your bone spurs? As long as you’re living in a fantasy world, sir, at least make it interesting.
The NRA isn’t emerging unscathed, with more than a dozen companies scrapping discounts and other perks for NRA members, Colbert said:
I didn’t even know these discounts existed! Are there other weapons-related savings we should be taking advantage of? Does Olive Garden have a special “Show your machete, get free spaghetti”?
I’m surprised the NRA was affiliated with car rental companies at all, considering Hertz and Avis enforce tyrannical rules like "age restrictions" and "having a license."
