Stephen Colbert has mocked Donald Trump’s presidential announcement. In a new video, looking like his ‘Colbert Report self and speaking with a trace of Trump’s signature New York accent, the 51-year-old comedian said that Trump has announced he is running for president of the United States, E! Online reported.
He added that “this will be the finest, most luxurious gold-plated, diamond-encrusted campaign that will give hope to a weary nation until together we reach that fine fall day when the new season of Celebrity Apprentice premieres and if elected, Trump will be in his own word, the greatest jobs president that God ever created.”
Trump really did say in announcing his candidacy earlier that he “will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.”
Colbert continued that not just any god, the most powerful, almightiest god, omnipotent, in the most luxurious heaven imaginable, adding “Don’t get me started on those other heavens.”
