Stephen Colbert Mocks Trump During George H.W. Bush Tribute

Late Night host Stephen Colbert took a jab at President Donald Trump during his tribute to the late former President George H.W. Bush.

Colbert accused Trump of draft-dodging during the Vietnam War.

Describing H.W. Bush as the “last president of the Greatest Generation,” Stephen Colbert played a footage of him being rescued by a submarine crew after his plane was shot down during World War II in 1944.

Then he dropped a line about Trump.

“The closest our current president has gotten to a submarine is a five-dollar footlong,” Colbert joked of Trump. “Of course almost 50 years later, Bush did get back at Japan when he threw up in the lap of the Japanese prime minister.”

Other late-night hosts, Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers also mocked Trump but for his appearance at the G-20 summit in Argentina, where at one point the President walked away from Argentinian President Mauricio Macri when he was expected to pose for a photo shoot.

“Trump is desperate to socialize at these things, but he’s so bad at it,” Meyers joked. “I’ve had better luck getting my dog to take a Christmas photo in her Santa hat.”

Kimmel also mocked Trump for wandering away from Macri, describing him as a “demented grandfather.”

“The president has a habit of doing that sort of thing,” he explained. “He carries himself like a demented grandfather who accidentally wandered into a wedding ceremony.”
