John Oliver is on hiatus, which means Stephen Colbert has stepped up to the challenge of mocking Donald Trump. In advance of the Republican presidential nominee’s speech on immigration—scheduled to take place on Wednesday in Arizona—Colbert took a closer look at Trump’s immigration policy, which has been evolving recently. “I’m quoting his supporters here: ‘Huh?’,” said Colbert, before noting that until a few weeks ago, Trump’s immigration policy has been based on two things: “Build the wall and deport ’em all,” which Colbert’s chyron interpreted as “Worst Dr. Seuss book ever.”

Colbert notes that as Trump’s poll numbers have shrunk (but are “still bigger than his hands”), Trump told a town hall crowd, “there could be a softening” towards law-abiding, tax-paying illegal immigrants. That’s where Colbert saw his entrance: “There could be a softening,” he said. “It happens to a lot of men his age.” Or as his chyron put it: “Electile Dysfunction.”
