It’s been 24 hours, so we’ve all had a little time to reflect on Donald Trump’s State of the Union address — including Stephen Colbert.
The Late Show host destroyed Trump’s speech one clip at a time immediately afterward on Tuesday, but on Wednesday night, he looped back to pick up one particular feature of Trump’s speech: rhyming.
“If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation,” Trump had said, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
“That’s kinda cute. He threatened our democracy with a little poem,” Colbert said, before composing his own limerick:
There once was a Donald from Queens.
Who came from a family of means.
“Don’t look into my stuff!”
He cried in a huff,
“Because you’ll find out I betrayed our country to the Russians.”
