"I'm going to say something right now that I did not think was possible anymore: I am shocked by something Donald Trump said," Colbert said. "I thought by now, after five months of this, that my soul had calcified into a crouton. Not true."
He joked Trump's remark about Brzezinski "bleeding so badly" from a facelift reads a lot like what might happen under the GOP's new health care plan.
"First of all, someone bleeding badly at your door and you say no," Colbert said. "It sounds like your health-care plan. I mean, turning them away from your hotel during the middle of winter is literally the story of Christmas -— only there wasn't a wise man in sight."
Though people said Trump's tweets were him reaching a new low, Colbert thinks he's actually right on brand.
"This is shocking and vicious, so, on brand ... it's the same low. We're at a cruising altitude of, like, the bottom of the Marianas Trench right now. There are giant squid looking down at America right now."
