Stephen Colbert’s Reaction To Trump’s Inaugural Address: “We Get It”

After having given Barack Obama a proper send off the night before by playing his alternative “persona” from The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert shifted his attention to the new POTUS: Donald Trump or should I say President Donald Trump.   “So, that’s it, Donald Trump is president,” Colbert said in his monologue. “He knows the launch codes. And he hasn’t tweeted them yet, so, so far, so good,” he added, crossing his fingers.

The only real nice thing Colbert had to say about Trump’s speech is that it was short.  Other critiques of the speech weren’t so nice.  Chris Matthews was quoted as saying the speech was “Hitlerian” and the populist undertones were strikingly similar to the German dictator.  Other people thought it was somewhat hopeful.  And millions of others spent the majority of their day protesting the entire inaugural day.   Here’s a choice quote from Colbert’s moment on the show:

“And then, like Lincoln huffing paint thinner, this stirring orator invoked an inspiring picture of the country he now leads,” Colbert said, showing clip after clip of the new president describing the country he will lead as a crime infested land of “American carnage.”  “We get it!” Colbert shouted. “We get it, the country is a turd storm! You said that during the campaign, you can stop now. He knows he won, right? Putin must have told him.”

Here is Colbert’s monologue

Well, it looks like there isn’t much we can do anymore. Either Trump is going to blow up the planet or not. At least we can get some laughs in the meantime? Ugh. No comment.
