COLBERT BORED BY TRUMP
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.
