Stephen Colbert Mocks ‘Coward’ Donald Trump: ‘He’s a Chicken’

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert called Donald Trump a “chicken” and a “coward” on SiriusXM’sThe Bill Carter Interview.”

Trump appeared on the “Late Show” in September of last year, but Colbert doesn’t think the GOP nominee will return anytime soon because “he’s a chicken.”

“I regret that that’s probably the only bite I’m going to get at that apple,” Colbert said. “I would have him on tomorrow, but he’s a coward.”

Colbert said his staff asks the Trump campaign on a regular basis, but “it is clear that Donald Trump is a coward because he won’t come back on the show.”

Colbert then proceeded to “put it in his own terms” and make chicken noises before joking, “He’s got a great sense of humor about himself. I’m sure he won’t mind.”

Colbert also discussed the recent wave of newspapers openly ripping Trump.

“There’s never been a general election like this before where there’s like a mainstream, or supposed — what you’d imagine is a mainstream rejection of one of the candidates,” Colbert said. “USA Today for God’s sake. The thing that gets slipped underneath your door. The cartoon page masquerading as a newspaper.”

The complete interview will air Monday at 6:00 p.m. ET on SiriusXM’s Insight Channel 121.
