Late night host Stephen Col­bert says he is a “white guy in white-guy drag,” ac­cord­ing to an in­ter­view in GQ, which has named Mr. Col­bert one if its men-of-the year, along with Colin Kaeper­nick and Kevin Du­rant. The host also had an ob­ser­va­tion about Pres­i­dent Trump.

“Trump is ac­tu­ally kind of a bor­ing guest. My brother Ed was in the au­di­ence the night that Trump was on, in 2015. And af­ter the show, he goes, ‘Okay, so he’s not a dummy.’” Mr. Col­bert re­called, de­scrib­ing Mr. Trump’s pres­ence on the pro­gram two years ago as “very, very, very safe.”

He also had a judg­ment call on a former Fox News host and au­thor.

“I had the same ex­pe­ri­ence when I in­ter­viewed Bill O’Reilly back in the day. It was like, ‘Wow, that was re­ally bor­ing.’ Bill O’Reilly wouldn’t be Bill O’Reilly on my show. That was the red meat he threw for his own fans,” Mr. Col­bert noted.
