Colbert was thrilled that President Trump said in an interview with Time magazine that he was “a no-talent guy” and not funny.
“The president of the United States has personally come after me and my show, and there’s only one thing to say … yay!” Colbert said, clapping his hands together and laughing.
He then blew kisses to the camera and waved as his audience chanted his name.
“Mr. Trump, there’s a lot you don’t understand, but I never thought one of those things would be show business,” Colbert said. “Don’t you know I’ve been trying for a year to get you to say my name? And you were very restrained — admirably restrained — but now you did it. I won.”
