Hours before Colberts Late Show taped, Trump kicked off his latest scorched-earth visit with NATO, accusing German Chancellor Angela Merkel of being a captive of Russia. Which is amusing because Merkels name would not top many peoples list of Which NATO Member Do You Think Is a Captive of Russia?
Trump said he had proof, claiming Germany gets 35% of its natural gas from Russia.
Colbert said we all should have seen that one coming from miles away, Trump having previously boasted on his latest trips stops:
UK, giving London mostly a miss to dodge the flying Baby Trump Blimp that will be launched to coincide
Trump had said, “Frankly, Putin may be easiest of them all – who would think?”
Colbert responded: “I would think. Everyone would think,”
“Im not ready to say Trump is a Russian agent,” Colbert continued, “but I have an agent and he doesnt do as much for me as Trump does for Russia.”
Then, in a shout-out to his agent, James “Baby Doll” Dixon, Colbert said, “I love you, Baby Doll, but you never swung an election for me. I lost to John Oliver!”
