The superhero sequel Deadpool 2, in theaters Friday, pulls no punches, mocking the likes of Jared Kushner, Fox & Friends, and more.
And on Tuesday night, Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth crashed The Late Show to keep the wisecracking against the Trump administration coming.
After host Stephen Colbert complained about the onslaught of summer superhero movies, exclaiming, “Enough with the superheroes!” Reynolds’ Deadpool—in his signature orange suit—materialized from backstage.
“Please guys, no one stand up. It’s CBS. I know how old your audience is,” cracked Deadpool. “This is a great opportunity for me to promote my movie Deadpool 2, in theaters Friday, and yes, I would love to be your guest tonight. Thank you for asking.”
Colbert responded that it “would be lovely,” but the show already had a guest in Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx. Instead, they struck a deal: Deadpool could try his hand at handling the rest of Colbert’s late-night monologue.
So he proceeded to put on Colbert’s glasses, and let it rip.
“Hello. I’m Stephen Colbert, and I’m legally blind,” said Deadpool, before losing the glasses. “You know, you’re not gonna believe this, but Donald Trump is in the news. The administration is still dealing with the fallout from Trump announcing that the U.S. will be pulling out of the Iran deal. It’s Trump’s biggest pulling-out blunder since Eric.”
He continued: “And President Trump spent the day complaining on Twitter about leaks inside the White House, because we all know Trump prefers his leaks inside of Russian hotel rooms. You get it, Stephen? Because the president watched two Russian prostitutes urinate on a hotel-room mattress?”
“Allegedly,” chimed in Colbert.
“You’re right, allegedly,” fired back Deadpool. “It could have been three prostitutes.”
