Stephen Colbert's response to President Donald Trump's recent comments, regarding Hurricane Florence, took the form of a song—one that certainly will not be featured at the next White House luncheon.
The Late Show host eased into the bit, on Tuesday, playing a clip, from a briefing on Hurricane Florence, of Trump discussing the government's plan for handling the impending storm. Colbert said Trump, "showed off his grasp of the details."
Trump's "grasp" included the statement:
It's tremendously big and tremendously wet.
To which Colbert added:
. . . which also describes the bed he ordered in Moscow.
Colbert then showed a clip of Trump making an outrageous claim regarding how he handled Hurricane Maria last year—a claim that San Juan Mayor, Carmen Yulín Cruz, called "despicable."
I think that Puerto Rico was an incredible unsung success.
To which Colbert responded:
He's right. It was definitely unsung . . . maybe because no one could plug in their mics because it took eleven months to restore power.
And that's when Colbert burst into song.
