Stephen Colbert Says “F*ck You” to President Trump Following Transgender Military Ban (Video)
In 2017, it’s not uncommon for late night comedy to follow an outrage cycle of reacting to the latest Trump controversy. However, those reactions rarely involve cursing out the president. That’s what happened last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Stephen Colbert started the segment by tearing apart the latest Trump tweet that has dominated the news cycles and declaring that Trump’s Twitter account has lately gone from “crazy to cruel.” The tweet in question states that Trump will not allow “….Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.” This was part of a three-tweet thread that was sent within minutes of each other because god bless you if you’re trying to understand Trump’s Twitter habits.
Colbert then said, referencing Trump’s third tweet in the thread Trump, “Thank you? Fuck you.”
