Our president is like an eight-year-old, according to Stephen Colbert, who roasted Trump on his show Wednesday night.
During his opening monologue, Colbert cited a recent Associated Press story that highlighted some unique characteristics of the new administration. And one nugget in particular stood out.
“With the push of a red button placed on the Resolute Desk that presidents have used for decades, a White House butler soon arrived with a Coke for the president,” the AP reported.
At first Colbert was on edge (it is a big red button with the President after all), but he soon realized it was almost comic.
“Thank God, I was worried there,” he said, coming down from a faux heart attack. “He’s just turning the Oval Office into an eight-year-old’s drawing of a dream treehouse.”
Colbert’s vision of the Oval Office is similar to a 1980s kids’ comedy, complete with the treehouse of your dreams and magical creatures.
“‘There will be a button where I get a Coke wherever I want, a slide with a ball pit, and Bigfoot sleeps over and he teaches me karate,'” Colbert imagined, channeling the President.
But what’s a high-tech treehouse without a butler? Luckily Colbert and his team had the perfect candidate: Chris Christie.
This isn’t the first time Colbert has brought up the “100 days” marker on his show. Previously, he thanked Trump for “his service” in giving him and other late-night hosts tons of material.
“I gotta say: Donald Trump has done a lot for me in the first hundred days,” he quipped. “Thank you for your service, Mr. President.”
