Stephen Colbert blasted Donald Trump after the final presidential debate on Oct. 19, calling the Republican candidate out for that bombshell moment when he said he’ll refuse to accept the election results. WATCH the hilariously scathing video right here!
Stephen Colbert, 52, is an expert at dragging Donald Trump, 70, and last night was no different. When moderator Chris Wallace asked him if he’ll accept the results come Nov. 8, Trump declared, “I will tell you at the time…I will keep you in suspense.” Well, Colbert is just one of millions whose jaw dropped at Trump’s answer. WATCH the Late Show host’s full reaction, which aired right after the debate, above!
“We just witnessed the third and final presidential debate, because two is not quite enough, and I think four would make us go cannibal,” Colbert begins in his monologue. Probably true.
Then he gets to the meat of it. “Though it came halfway through the debate tonight, I think the definitive moment of the evening — of the election — of the American experiment — came when Chris Wallace asked Donald Trump if he would accept the results of the election on Nov. 8,” Colbert says before showing a clip of Trump making his comments.
After the footage rolls, the talk show host looks comically distraught.
“Oh, my God,” he scoffs. “Oh! Suspense! Democracy is going to end with a cliffhanger! I guess we’re all going to have to wait until November 9 to find out if we still have a country — if Donald Trump is in the mood for a peaceful transfer of power, or if he’s going to wipe his fat ass with the Constitution!”
Cue the thunderous cheers and applause.
“I do not envy his campaign manager,” Colbert adds.
