After tasing the part of his brain that understands sentence structure, Stephen Colbert delivered his own presidential endorsement speech in “Palin-ese.”
Stephen Colbert says Donald Trump is playing his old character better than he ever could, The Hill reports.
Said Colbert: “He’s completely playing on an emotional level – and so beautifully. I mean, it’s one of the reasons why I just can’t do that old character anymore, because he’s doing it better than I ever could, because he’s willing to drink his own Kool Aid and manufacture and distribute it, because he’s got all the cash.”
He added: “I’m not the first person to say this, but I completely agree that he’s my old character with $10 billion.”
New York Times: “For nine years, Stephen Colbert has relentlessly maintained his pompous, deeply ridiculous but consistently appealing conservative blowhard character on his late-night show, The Colbert Report — so much so that when he puts the character to rest for good on Thursday night, he may have to resort to comicide. The Grim Reaper is his last guest.”
