Stephen Colbert Can’t Believe Donald Trump Actually Bragged About His Penis at a GOP Debate


On Monday, Stephen Colbert took a few minutes to address Donald Trump’s boast about the size of his penis during the most recent Republican debate, expressing his utter disbelief that such a vulgar remark could be made by a presidential candidate. At one point, the Late Show host couldn’t even keep a straight face while delivering a joke about the GOP front-runner’s less than presidential comments.

“This man is talking about the size of his schvantz in a presidential debate,” Colbert said. “This is someone who could have his fingers on the button—and God, I hope it’s his finger. We don’t know if it could reach the button. We have no idea! The Russians could launch and he could be trying to reach the button.”

“I can’t believe that these are absolutely legitimate jokes to be making about a presidential debate right now,” he added.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
