Colbert Mocks Trump’s ‘Bedtime’ Chats with Sean Hannity: The Oprah and Gayle of ‘Angry Old White Men’

On Monday night, Stephen Colbert ripped the close relationship between President Trump and Sean Hannity. Colbert began by comparing Trump and Hannity to being the Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King of “angry old white men” and there’s a new report from New York magazine that says they like to talk “before bedtime.” “‘Sean, what are you wearing?'” Colbert impersonated Trump. “‘I’m wearing nothing but a cheeseburger wrapper… I’ll never get the smell of onions off now.'” According to the report, Trump and the Fox News host chat about the “witch hunt,” media gossip, and “whose shows suck.” “I hope it’s me!” Colbert crossed his fingers. “I would love to be up there with ‘Low-Rated Morning Joe,‘ ‘Unfunny SNL,’ and Lyin’ Spongebob Squarepants.'” The Late Show host mentioned an excerpt from the piece that says on some days, Trump enters a room and others that he had just got off the phone with Hannity. “So after a cable news pundit talks to the President of the United States, it’s the president namedropping Sean Hannity?’ Colbert asked. “That’s like if Beyoncé bragged about meeting the Trivago guy.” The report also mentions how Trump’s cable news consumption is “mainly a complete dosage of Fox.” “‘A complete dosage of Fox,'” Colbert reacted. “Side effects may include decrease worldview, verbal diarrhea and Lou Dobbs disease. Remember, if your Tucker Carlson lasts more than four hours, it’s because he’s a dick.” Watch the clip above, via CBS.
