Colbert took to his resurrected bit “The Werd,” to knock down Trump’s critique of DNC speakers Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the parents of an American soldier who died in the Iraq war.
Recently, Trump tweeted, “Mr. Khan, who does not know me, viciously attacked me from the stage of the DNC and is now all over T.V. doing the same – Nice!”
Unlike Khan, Colbert proved that he met Trump with a picture, which makes him totally eligible to get vicious with a one-two punch. It’s a situation that requires cursing, but how does the host do that on network TV? Abbreviations. “So I’m solid ground when I say Donald, you’re being a dad bag (D-Bag, which again due to space we’ve had to shorten,”) the host said. During the segment, he also calls Trump a “P.O.S.,” which really means (“part of society”) for saying John McCain is “not a war hero.”
Colbert should rename all the curse words to help everyone sneak expletives past Auto Correct on their phones.
