Watch Lewis Black And Stephen Colbert Hilariously Lampoon Trump’s ‘Bullsh*t And Insanity’
Comedian Lewis Black and The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert delivered an incendiary performance and surely President Donald Trump’s ears must be burning. Colbert and Black have been buddies for a good 20 years or more, ever since they began working on The Daily Show, according to The Daily Beast. Since they have such a shared history, it didn’t take much for Colbert to prompt Black to really share his feelings about our neophyte president.

“I have seen you angry through four presidential administrations,” Colbert noted. “Is there anything unique about your present level of anger with the Trump administration?”
Black rolled his eyes back.
“I did a lot of hallucinogens when I was younger in order to prepare me for any eventual reality, and I never saw this one coming,” he said, to enthusiastic applause from the audience.
“Well, let’s talk about some specifics here because it’s been theory up until this past week and now we’re into the reality of it,” Colbert said. “What do you make of the immigration ban?”
“You know what’s interesting is to see them, to watch them — the amount of energy it must take for these people to turn bullsh*t and insanity and meanness and make it look reasonable. How do you do it?” Black wondered.
“Something I should have said at the top — when you show this later — this is live to tape — pixelate my face and make my voice fake, because I don’t want that big baby yelling at me.”
Black also had a thing or two to say about Trump’s conspiracy theories about voter fraud scandals that caused him to lose the popular vote.
“First off, less than half of the American people voted,” Black said. “People don’t like to vote. if they don’t like to vote, why would you think they would then like to commit voter fraud? You can’t even get them into the booth!”
Then he decided to elaborate a little on that cheating voter scenario.
“You know, running around town, stopping in at shops to have a little lunch before they cheat some more! Helping the economy out” Black said, rolling his eyes.
The two old friends continue to talk for awhile, then Colbert asked Black if he had ever considered going into politics. And Black, with his usual killer wit, remarked:
“If there was a year, it should have been the one he (Trump) ran. Who knew that you didn’t have to know anything?”
Trump is certainly exemplifying THAT.
