While complaining Monday about the "witch hunt" to prove he or his team colluded with Russia in some manner to win the 2016 election, Trump tweeted that he should "be given an apology," because "there is no collusion and obstruction."
Colbert obliged during his "The Late Show" monologue Monday night.
"I’m a big enough man to apologize,” Colbert said. "And I believe I speak for the majority of Americans when I say this: I’m sorry you’re president."
Of course, Colbert also made fun of Trump for referring to himself as "T" in the tweet.
The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2017
...and did not want to "rock the boat." He didn't "choke," he colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2017
The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling. With 4 months looking at Russia...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2017
..under a magnifying glass, they have zero "tapes" of T people colluding. There is no collusion & no obstruction. I should be given apology!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2017
"Who the hell is T?" Colbert asked. "You know there’s already a letter for when you’re talking about yourself. It’s 'I,' as in, 'I don’t believe anyone calls you T!' You can't give yourself a nickname!"
He went continued to point out that POTUS shouldn't be calling out former president Obama of doing nothing claiming he was also involved in Russian meddling.
"Hold on,” Colbert said. "Nobody is accusing Obama of colluding or obstructing. That’s your deal."
