Stephen Colbert: Trump Acting Like ‘8-Year-Old’ in Oval Office
The ‘Late Show’ host felt a lot better when he found out what Trump’s red button does.
One detail in a recent Associated Press story about President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office really stood out to Stephen Colbert. “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.
“Thank God, I was worried there,” the Late Show host said, having nearly had a panic attack after reading the first part of that sentence. “He’s just turning the Oval Office into an eight-year-old’s drawing of a dream treehouse.”
“‘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 the president of the United States demanding.
“Good for him!” Colbert said. “The president deserves to be refreshed,” he added, before showing his audience a photo of the butler: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
