The 'Late Show' host had thrown some stinging barbs the president's—and Steve Bannon's—way on Thursday. But none more controversial than this.
Stephen Colbert returned to The Late Show this week after a two-week vacation, and, given the constant chaos of the Trump administration, there was quite a bit he missed.
The comedian didn't waste any time, ripping President Trump's bizarre Hurricane Harvey response—wherein the commander in chief hawked a new line of USA hats, marveled at the size of the crowd he received, and failed to meet with a single victim of the devastating natural disaster during his first go-around—and the president's creepy story about his 35-year-old daughter Ivanka, who he has a history of sexually objectifying, addressing him as "Daddy."
Well, on Thursday, Colbert got around to covering Steve Bannon's "conscious uncoupling" with the Trump administration.
"As so many things happened, I really missed the chance to talk about some big stuff—especially the exit of White House strategist (and Proactiv 'before' model) Steve Bannon," cracked Colbert.
