Col­bert glee­fully re­sponds ‘I won’ to in­sults from Trump

Cape Breton Post - - Arts/Entertainment -

Stephen Col­bert has glee­fully re­sponded to in­sults hurled his way by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, cheer­ing the fact that he fi­nally got Trump to say his name.

Trump told Time mag­a­zine that Col­bert was a “no-tal­ent guy” and “there’s noth­ing funny about what he says.” The pres­i­dent also took credit for Col­bert’s im­proved rat­ings, say­ing he didn’t start do­ing bet­ter un­til he started at­tack­ing Trump.

Col­bert re­sponded on his CBS “Late Show” on Thurs­day. As if talk­ing to Trump, Col­bert said that “don’t you know I’ve been try­ing for a year to get you to say my name?” He added: “I won.”

“Mak­ing jokes about you has been good for rat­ings,” Col­bert said. “It’s al­most as if a ma­jor­ity of Amer­i­cans didn’t want you to be pres­i­dent. But you know who’s got re­ally bad rat­ings these days? You do.”
