Its a huge week for Donald Trump because this Saturday he will reach 100 days in office, and boy, it sure seems longer.Thats how Stephen Colbert, the king of late night, opened his latest Late Show monologuea lengthy affair that broke down President Trumps first 100 days in office.The first 100 days are traditionally a time to reflect on accomplishments for a president, and Trump hasnt got a lot of those, quipped Colbert. He still hasnt filled his Cabinet, he didnt repeal Obamacare, there are still Muslims. Butand its a big buthe did sign a law making it easier for mentally ill people to buy guns and for hibernating bears to be hunted. So he took care of his base: insane people who want to murder Yogi.
Like any accomplished student, Trump tried to lower expectations for his 100-day grade this past week by tweeting:
The initials S.C., Colbert joked, could mean the Supreme Courtand Trumps nomination of Neil Gorsuchor it could mean none other than Stephen Colbert.
Its possible! He has been on the show, the comedian said. I gotta say, Donald Trump has done a lot for me in his first 100 days. Thank you for your service, Mr. President. And now I feel dirty.
To commemorate his first 100 days in office, Trump sat down for an interview with the Associated Press and it was a rambling, largely incoherent mess. It was so garbled that, in the transcript of the interview, the reporter wrote 16 times that the answer Trump gave was unintelligible.
Furthermore, Trumpas is his wontbragged about his ratings on CBSs Face the Nation, claiming that his appearance received the highest ratings for the show since the World Trade Center came down.I have, seem to get very high ratings. I definitely. You know Chris Wallace had 9.2 million people, its the highest in the history of the show. [CBS Face the Nation host] Dickerson had 5.2 million people, said Trump. Its the highest for Deface the Nation since the World Trade Center. Since the World Trade Center came down. Its a tremendous advantage.
Its particularly odd for Trump to invoke the 9/11 terror attacks considering that he has lied repeatedly about the events of that dayclaiming to have seen thousands of Muslims celebrating the towers falling (they didnt), that he personally helped clean up the rubble (he didnt), that he saw people jumping from the towers from his apartment in Midtown Manhattan (not possible), you name it. If that werent enough, Trump reportedly failed to visit the 9/11 Memorial until the eve of the New York primary, in order to curry favor with voters, and the only donation that his Donald J. Trump Charitable Foundation made to a 9/11-related charity prior to his running for president was $1,000 to the New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Funda bizarre outfit that promotes Scientologys Purification Rundown, which has come under fire from the medical community.
Mr. President, I know youre proud of your ratings, but how do I say this: Its not normally a good thing to compare yourself to 9/11. You know that, right? asked Colbert.
Then, the late-night host began imitating Trump: My first hundred days have been huge. Titanic, OK? Were blowin up, OK? Bigger than anything since Nagasaki. Thats how big.
